    That's a photo of a "federal building that has been taken over by armed white men..." Some ranchers, who happen to be white, are protesting against federal land grabs. They entered an empty building in the middle of nowhere, to occupy. They've not made race an issue. They've not looted or vandalized. They're not waving weapons around. Reporters feel safe walking up to the building and talking to the men. The situation is ongoing.

    Here's how the Left sees the above to photos. Here's more of the Left's responses from Twitter to the Rancher protest.

    This is a hot topic at the moment, and plenty of memes are circulating the web from Conservative news sources.

      Racism is very similar to the sin of outrageous oversimplification. Obviously, the opening post is racist.

        What's racist Zog? That I see racism and hypocrisy in the Left complaining that the feds, under Obama, aren't charging into a remote building to shoot peaceful white protesters because they're white?

          You're speaking gibberish. I'm far left of President Barack Obama and I have no such complaint.

            Still, there's a a lot of people on the Left insisting these ranchers are benefiting from "white privileged" simply because the feds haven't yet crushed their peaceful, middle-of-nowhere protest. Too bad David Koresh's cult didn't benefit from white privilege when they were on their own property, threatening no one until the police invaded their building. Luckily for Black-Lives-Matter, they have white privilege because their strategy is to disrupt other people's lives, such as blocking traffic and forcing businesses to close, yet the government hasn't put an end to their organized crime.

            I just ran across this article Here’s What Happened When Black People Tried Armed Occupation, linked on a popular news portal. The black racist group, MOVE, had their building bombed by the Philadelphia cops therefor, the Left reasons, it's racism when these ranchers, who just happen to be white, aren't bombed by the feds. That Leftwing article fails to mention is that the standoff with MOVE lasted a year before police used force, and even then it wasn't until after MOVE shot a cop in the back that police forced an end to the standoff. And, no, that cop wasn't climbing through their window at the time. There's also a big difference between the incompetent authorities in Philadelphia with a large percentage of the voters being black and an overwhelmingly Democrat-controlled city and the federal authorities (outside of DC) handling the rancher standoff. Also, I would hope authorities have learned a lesson from MOVE and Koresh about attempting to use force to end standoffs, experience being a difference, not race.

                    When Democrats are responsible for tragedies, we're not suppose to mention the party in control?? In Baltimore, the mayor, the police chief, and the cops accused of killing Freddie Gray, after a just arrest, are all black Democrats (but, I think Gray was suffering from a pre-existing injury that he aggravated himself). In NY where "Can't breath" Garner was allegedly chocked for selling Democrat-banned cigarettes, Democrat voters outnumber Republicans 5 to 1. Ditto for Ferguson where Michael "hands up" Brown was shot in an altercation with a cop, after a strong-arm robbery. Trayvon Martin was shot, in self-defense, by a Democrat in a state that gave its votes to Obama. 85% of the murderers of blacks are black Democrats. Tamir Rice, the kid with the toy gun, was shot in a city with a black Democrat majority -- and contrary the lying liberal on left whose cartoon I posted above, no one says that kid was a thug (the cartoonist is exploiting the kid's death to use him to represent all the real thugs whom he is pretending to be innocent kids with toys.)

                    So, Zog, how come the Left is showing such hatred toward these ranchers for their peaceful, in-the-middle-of-nowhere protest that has nothing to do with race nor with anything that will make one bit of difference in the lives of anyone on the Left? Why is the left screaming so much about racism because Obama's feds didn't immediately mow down these ranchers? Not a single rancher has done so much as hold a sign saying "No Justice, No Peace."

                    Democrats or the Left paint ranchers and Tea Partiers as racists and terrorists. Do you agree with me that if anyone is doing such painting, that it's shameful?

                      The authorities finally used force. Instead of an armed attack upon the middle-of-nowhere building, they waited until a group of protesters were headed to town for a meeting. Two ranchers shot. One killed. A witness says the man killed had his hands up and was unarmed. Police have provided no video. There won't be any whites chanting "hands up, don't shoot". There won't be protests in various cities of people demanding the video of the police attack. And, Democrats who insisted that these ranchers enjoyed "white privilege" won't retract anything they've said.

                      Anyway, these ranchers aren't rocket scientists. If they had any wit, they wouldn't have traveled to town with any guns.

                      The feds aren't rocket scientists either. The feds did learn from such things as the as the attack on the Branch Dravidians (who by the way were white but the feds probably didn't know what, right?) not to attack a heavily defended compound (in the middle-of-nowhere) because people will. die. Back then, if the feds were smart, they would have arrested David Koresh in a traffic stop, and without sieging the Davidian compound in the first place. And, with the ranchers, if authorities were smart they would have just let the ranchers occupy the building indefinably. There's no reason to force an end to it, those protesters weren't threatening anyone (unless attacked). Maybe just rename to occupied building "County Jail."

                      But, the dumbest of the dumb are the Democrats who can't see past their own vile racism.

                        The man shot dead by FBI was not your typical "criminal". The man killed in an FBI shootout in Oregon was a rancher and foster parent to 50 boys

                          No, these ranchers are not criminals. Any "crime" they're guilty of Civil Disobedience. These ranchers, out in the isolated west for generations, have a concept and an appreciation of freedom that no one on the Left can even begin to comprehend (it has a lot to do with being left alone). They are peaceful protesters, but not the kind of "peaceful protester" that deliberately disrupts the lives of others and serving as cover for rioters and looters behind them. Lavoy Finicum is shot dead. The FBI has released one low-quality, silent video. I have some questions. When was the first shot fired? Was a gun recovered from Finicum's body? Why aren't the hands-up-don't-shoot mob coming to Finicum's defense? When do we get to see the good quality video? In any case, there is no reason for the feds to try to use force to end a completely peaceful protest in the middle of nowhere. Political cartoons from the Left are laughing at the recent events.

                            Lavoy was murdered with hands up.

                              White privilege exists. No surprises there.
