See update below please. Ammon Bundy, who’s leading the armed anti-government militia group who have been occupying a remote national wildlife preserve near Burns, Oregon, compared his effort to that of civil rights icon Rosa Parks.
Parks, who is totally nothing like Bundy, was arrested after refusing to give up her bus seat to a white passenger in 1955.
In contrast, Ammon Bundy, with a gang of armed white militia members, took over a federal building. The group of dunderheads have been there for four days now and have said they are willing to say indefinitely, even though they forgot to bring snacks. Again, the family at the center of the dispute was found guilty of arson charges and do not want anything to do with Bundy’s gang of right-wing miscreants.
Still yet, Bundy thinks he’s just like Rosa Parks.
“We are doing the same thing as Rosa Parks did. We are standing up against bad laws which dehumanize us and destroy our freedom,” he tweeted.
Let’s compare, shall we?
After a bus driver, James F. Blake, ordered Ms. Parks to give up her seat in the ‘colored section’ to a white passenger because the white section was filled up, she was tired after a long day at work and refused.
Parks’ act of defiance became an important symbol of the modern Civil Rights Movement after resisting racial discrimination. And that footnote is history is absolutely nothing like Ammon Bundy’s move to seize a federal building in defense of two arsonists.
Twitter users took issue with Bundy’s jaw-dropping comparison.
Nice try. Rosa Parks didn't hijack a bus with an assault rifle because she didn't want to pay the bus fare. @Ammon_Bundy

@Ammon_Bundy 'cause everyone remembers the part of the Rosa Parks story where she threatened to kill if they tried to stop her right.

@Ammon_Bundy Don't invoke Rosa Parks in your BS…not when your dad starts a sentence like: "let me tell you something about the negro" …

Rosa Parks was tired on the bus that day. She had just gotten off work, paid her fare, then sat in the ‘colored section.’
Parks later recalled the incident, saying, “I thought of Emmett Till and I just couldn’t go back.” The bus driver said, “Why don’t you stand up?” Parks responded, “I don’t think I should have to stand up.”
In Oregon, we have a gang of armed thugs who are refusing to go to work. Ammon Bundy took out a $530,000 federal loan from the government he hates. Parks will be admired forever and thought of as a brave black woman who had had enough and refused to be dehumanized.
Bundy is being widely mocked as a self-entitled, lawless welfare queen.
Correction: The account feigning to be Ammon Bundy on Twitter is a hoax account. Actually, I’m familiar with his main account which sends out racist tweets. He’s d0xed me before.
We apologize for the error.
Be sure to give us some ‘like’ on Facebook.
