Sunday Forum with Randy Blazak on The occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.

Randy has spoken to us twice before about his work with Neo-Nazis and hate crimes.  He was very well-received by KS members.  

Randy wrote in his Jan. 25th blogpost entitled What does the Bundy militia really want? 

We can make fun of these guys. We can see how they've trampled the rights of the people of Harney County while pretending to defend them. We can see them as little boy soldiers obsessed with guns and cowboy hats. We can see them as entitled whites who are the media-savvy face of a racist underground. We can see them as armed terrorists who would be dead by now if they were black or Muslim. Or we could see them as sparking a discussion about our faith in and fear of the government and what we should do about it.

....[A]s much as we might disagree with the macho tactics of the militia members, this issue about the power of the federal government to infringe on our personal liberties is at the core of the American conversation. It was in 1789 and it is in 2016.
