Ammon Bundy is like Rosa Parks? Hold up.

As if the situation at the Malheur Wildlife Refuge in Oregon couldn’t get any wilder, now one of the leaders of the militia takeover has compared himself to Rosa Parks.

Ammon Bundy, brother of de facto militia leader, Ryan Bundy, tweeted out early this morning:

“We are doing the same thing that Rosa Parks did. We are standing up against bad laws which dehumanize us and destroy our freedom.”

The gun loving group, who Ryan Bundy stated was “willing to kill and be killed if necessary,” has taken over the Refuge in Burns, Oregon and has refused to relinquish their siege of the federal building. And now one of the racist group’s leaders has compared the group to a Black woman, one who is one of the primary figures in the Civil Rights movement. Stop. The foolish statement is mind numbing and absolutely ridiculous.
