Who Hijacked Our Country

No, not Ted Bundy; not Al Bundy.  Bundyfest is named after Cliven Bundy, America's favorite parasite. 

Bundyfest is being put together by some of the organizers of the annual Burning Man Festival in northern Nevada.  Bundyfest's Facebook page says:

“For years, we paid permitting fees to hold Burning Man on the beautiful Playa in Northern Nevada.  But now, Cliven Bundy has shown us a NEW WAY! ABSOLUTE FREEDOM! Bundy has declared the entire area surrounding Bundy Ranch as a TOTALLY RULES-FREE ZONE! ANYTHING GOES!  WOO-HOO!!!”

Bundyfest will be a month-long festival beginning on September 5th, right after the end of the Burning Man Festival.  It'll be held right across the road from Cliven Bundy's ranch in Bunkerville, Nevada.  240 bands will be performing 24 hours a day.  Sean Shealy, one of the organizers, said:

“Some people have asked me, where will we camp, where will we park?  Anywhere, really. It’s f*cking anarchy.”

The Bundyfest Facebook page says no permits will be required and full nudity will be allowed.  And there'll be a “penis erection contest,” with prizes being award to whoever builds the largest phallic structures in the desert.  One possible drawback:  No bathroom facilities:

“You’re free to let it all hang out right there, just like Bundy’s cattle, right there in the Virgin River, if you want to.”

Point the biggest speakers towards his property.

Come one, come all. A penis erection contest has all sorts of possibilities. The categories are endless.

I have a bad feeling about this situation. Could be Ruby Ridge on steroids.

Jerry: Yup, wall to wall Marshall amps all turned up to eleven and all pointed toward's Cliven Bundy's property. Penis erection contests, everybody defecating outdoors (just like Bundy's cattle) -- this is Freedom! Cliven Bundy might be sorry about what he wished for.

Jim: There's definitely that possibility. Ruby Ridge in reverse; Easy Rider times several thousand. I wasn't even sure if the linked article was serious or just satire. But we certainly don't want a full-scale culture war, especially when only one side is armed.

I'm in just for the free nudity. It gets hot there at Burning Man. I will even sacrifice myself to do the dick measuring to take one for the team so to speak. Oh, it's phallic structures, then nevermind :) If they do need someone to do dick measuring I will volunteer my services, at no charge even, just to show I am a team player.

Jess: LOL. The more the merrier. Maybe it'll be another Woodstock, right under this "property rights!" rancher's nose. It's all about Freedom, no?

Woodstock was never Woodstock according to some of the people my parent's age that went there. We go to Coachella every year and that seems like a hip Woodstock. Everything the wingers do is all for the Freedumz.

I think Jim is on the right track here... for every hundred unarmed people who flock to Bundyfest there will be a dozen or so angry "militia" types who flock to Bundy's ranch. It could be like a wet dream come true for some of the guys with the weapons.
