Some of you probably already know who Ammon Bundy is – because of who his father, Cliven, is. The latter famously stood up to the federales, something one just doesn’t do in the Servile States of America. The former stood up to the medical apparat in Idaho, which performed what Ammon called a “medical kidnapping” of a ten-month-old child on the basis of allegations of neglect.
The child is the grandson of Diego Rodriquez, a pastor who worked on Ammon’s gubernatorial campaign last year and is a personal friend.
Ammon believes the allegations of neglect were spurious – and that the action taken by St. Luke’s Hospital, police and state child welfare bureaucrats was unjustified and over-the-top, especially as regards separating the child from its parents.
Bundy – along with others who feel the same – protested outside St. Luke’s.
For this he has been on the receiving end of an Alex Jonesian civil suit and more, which my friend Bryan Hyde – with whom I do a radio show each Tuesday – is covering in the hopes that more people will hear about what’s happening to Ammon Bundy and why.
I know Bryan to be a measured, non-hysterical and fair-minded guy who tells the truth about what he knows and wanted to help him get this out to the extent I am able to do that.
Whatever you think of the Bundys, think carefully about what is being done to them. Because if it can be done to them, it could be done to you, too.
