Y’all Qaeda! One Member Of The Oregon Militia Used Donations For A Booze Bender
Here’s a story from the frontline of the Bundy Militia protest in Oregon. Apparently things are getting pretty weird with Y’all Qaeda during the occupation of Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. The other day there were desperately in need of snacks the other day. Now one member used all their online donations from supporters to go on a booze bender.
Via Raw Story:
Joe Oshaugnessy, a militiaman from Arizona, is the point-person for trying to recruit people to join their cause.
But his friends tearfully announced that Oshaugnessy, who is known as “Capt. O,” had left the refuge Wednesday and was instead staying at a motel nearby — as some others associated with the militants have apparently been doing, according to sources.
What was he doing at that hotel? Hitting the bottle with funds raised from online supporters, as a good patriotic militiaman does.
Jon Ritzheimer, the Arizona militiaman known for organizing anti-Muslim rallies and fundraising through his “Rogue Infidel” site, went to see Oshaugnessy at the motel and found him drinking there, according to Maureen Peltier, a disabled National Guard woman who claims to be the group’s official spokeswoman.
Peltier said Ritzheimer had confirmed that Oshaugnessy had kept the money he had raised through social media for himself and had spent at least some of it on a drinking binge.
Apparently he was sour grapes because women and children were in the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge and he wanted a gun fight. YEEEEEEHAAWWWWW!
Oshaugnessy had apparently argued with some of the participants about the presence of women and children at the wildlife refuge, where militants apparently hoped to draw federal agents into a gun battle.
What a shit show. But you gotta admit it’s kind of a bro move to just say “fuck it, let’s drink” and throw in the towel on such a stupid cause. Meanwhile, his brothers-in-arms are calling him a deserter to the cause. One guy even started crying about it on Facebook, but then he deleted the video because I guess his boys thought he was being a little bitch. Via:
“Ritzheimer did call me — he’s f*cking pissed, he’s mad, he’s upset,” Irvin said. “He told me to tell all of you that Joe Oshaugnessy is a deserter and a coward.”
Irvin said the militants felt betrayed by Oshaugnessy, who had taken part like many of them in the 2014 standoff at the Bundy ranch — where various factions within the right-wing “patriot” movement also squabbled.
“It’s like finding out there is no such thing as Santa,” Irvin said. “Come on, man.”
Come on, man. Oshaugnessy clearly has tail and a bottle to chase at a bar.
