Bundy Ranch 'Militia' Considered Using Women As Human Shield

It appears that the anti-government activists protesting the Bureau of Land Management's actions against a Nevada cattle rancher were considering using women as a human shield if a gun battle had erupted during the standoff.

The Blaze, the conservative news site affiliated with Glenn Beck, flagged the comments made Monday by Richard Mack, identified as a former Arizona sheriff who had joined more than 1,000 other protesters alongside Cliven Bundy, who has been feuding with BLM over his use of federal land to graze his cattle.

“We were actually strategizing to put all the women up at the front,” Mack said in a Fox News clip pulled by The Blaze. “If they are going to start shooting, it’s going to be women that are going to be televised all across the world getting shot by these rogue federal officers.”

BLM ended its round-up of Bundy's cattle Saturday, citing public safety concerns after the self-described militias gathered in the area to support Bundy.

  1. At least one video had women in the front of the line.

    Even one claiming she was pregnant.

    Now I am an equal opprotunity kind of guy, and if they want to be there with the protestors, that is up to them.

    Nut to use a supposed pregnancy as an excuse to be treated differently in an confrontation is , in my opinion, bullshit. If you are fragile, or in a fragile state, you shouldn't be there where you (or your unborn child) might be hurt.

    This might be leftist spin, but I would bet that it had some basis in fact.

    Who knows for sure?

  2. My understanding of Patriot Women in general, is that you might not be able to keep them behind you no matter how much you might want to.

  4. If some of the women made the choice to stand with their husbands, no matter the end result, I wouldn't argue with them.

    If the women weren't involved in the discussion about being placed up front, that's bullshit.

  5. We're not even American and my wife said she would have stood in the front to support him. Mind you she did also say that she'd like me half a mile off to the left with my rifle in case they did start shooting. 12 years as sniper for the RAF regiment and SFSG does have its uses.
