Let this sink in for a minute…..

Let this sink in for a minute…..
Hundreds and hundreds of small boats pulled by countless pickups and SUVs from across the South are headed for Houston. Almost all of them driven by men. They’re using their own property, sacrificing their own time, spending their own money, and risking their own lives for one reason: to help total strangers in desperate need. Most of them are by themselves. Most are dressed like the redneck duck hunters and bass fisherman they are. Many are veterans. Most are wearing well-used gimme-hats, t-shirts, and jeans; and there’s a preponderance of camo. Most are probably gun owners, and most probably voted for Trump.
These are the people the Left loves to hate, the ones Maddow mocks. The ones Maher and Olbermann just *know* they’re so much better than.

These are The Quiet Ones. They don’t wear masks and tear down statues. They don’t, as a rule, march and demonstrate. And most have probably never been in a Whole Foods.
But they’ll spend the next several days wading in cold, dirty water; dodging gators and water moccasins and fire ants; eating whatever meager rations are available; and sleeping wherever they can in dirty, damp clothes. Their reward is the tears and the hugs and the smiles from the terrified people they help. They’ll deliver one boatload, and then go back for more.

When disaster strikes, it’s what men do. Real men. Heroic men. American men. And then they’ll knock back a few shots, or a few beers with like-minded men they’ve never met before, and talk about fish, or ten-point bucks, or the benefits of hollow-point ammo, or their F-150.
And the next time they hear someone talk about “the patriarchy”, or “male privilege”, they’ll snort, turn off the TV and go to bed.

In the meantime, they’ll likely be up again before dawn. To do it again. Until the helpless are rescued. And the work’s done. They’re unlikely to be reimbursed. There won’t be medals. They won’t care. They’re heroes. And it’s what they do.

This evening, the FBI made a legal, felony stop on a vehicle carrying Ammon Bundy and several other individuals.  After a shoot out with the FBI, four individuals were reportedly taken into custody, including Ammon Bundy.  Two individuals are reported to have been taken to the Burns hospital, which is currently on lock down.

FBI sources stated that those at the Refuge are currently free to leave unimpeded, implying that there might be action if they do not leave immediately.

Although those in custody have not been confirmed, we can safely assume that Buddha Cavalier was with Ammon.  Ryan Payne suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was taken to the hospital, according to local officials.

UPDATES:

1811L:  Blaine Cooper has reportedly assumed leadership at the Refuge and has been told to leave immediately.  During a phone call with Pete Santilli, Pete can be overheard saying, “Blaine, please don’t do this.”  Blaine is reportedly wanting to make a stand.  Women and children are still at the Refuge.

1821L:  According to local government officials, Ryan Payne suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was taken to the Burns hospital.
