Oregon Protester Reveals Bombshell Truth About Ammon Bundy’s “Stand Down” Order
Little more than a week has passed since the FBI and Oregon state law enforcement officials took several of the armed protesters into custody after they left the Malhuer wildlife refuge they were occupying.
During that arrest, which resulted in the shooting death of Robert “LaVoy” Finicum, protest leader Ammon Bundy was taken into custody.
Following Bundy’s arraignment at a Portland courthouse, a statement from the group’s leader was read by Bundy’s attorney, Mike Arnold, which said: “Please stand down. Go home and hug your families. This fight is now in the courts.”
But not everyone is buying that “stand down” order purportedly given by Bundy, with at least one of the fellow protesters claiming he believes it was “coerced,” according to Newsmax.
“I think that either Ammon was coerced or the lawyer might have been coerced,” proclaimed Jacob Parker, one of the Oregon militia members who left the refuge in the wake of the arrests and death of Finicum.
Speaking during an exclusive interview with filmmaker and activist Dennis Michael Lynch, Parker quickly added, “I can’t speculate on that completely.”
“I don’t want to, but I believe that — as far as the Bundys go — that they want this to continue,” he continued. “They want to retain that land that the refuge is on.”
