Nate Thayer: Heavily Armed Oregon Patriots Lied about Actual Military Combat Service

| January 11, 2016

Our buddy, Nate Thayer wrote about the “Patriots” at the Wildlife Refuge in Oregon. He talked to another buddy, Mary Schantag, about them;

“These guys don’t question one another because they would expose each other as the frauds and liars they are,” said Mary Schantag , chairwoman of the POWNetwork.org. “The real veterans would leave as soon as they heard these guys ridiculous stories.” Schantag runs an organization of military veterans devoted to exposing frauds and perpetrators of “Stolen Valor”.

We saw that when we exposed many of the leadership of the Iraq Veterans Against the War who weren’t actually veterans of Iraq. The real veterans abandoned them at light speed. I suspect the same thing will happen as the real veterans at Oregon start looking at their compatriots.

Nate brings up a good point about Jon Ritzheimer. He is always complaining about how some Marine Corps sergeant major tossed him out because of his tattoos. I’m sure Ritzheimer hoped that people listening to that tale would think of the recent discussion about “sleeve” tattoos, but at the time he left the Marine Corps Reserve, the policy was against racist and sexist tattoos. Nate recounts the policy;

U.S. Marine Corps Tattoo policy includes: “Any tattoos that are racist, sexist, drug-related, vulgar, anti-American or are associated with any extremist group or gang are already not permitted on Marines. Tattoos/Brands that are sexist (express nudity), racist, eccentric or offensive in nature, express an association with conduct or substances prohibited by the Marine Corps drug policy and the uniform code of military justice (UCMJ), to include tattoos associated with illegal drugs, drug usage, or paraphernalia, are prohibited.”

Given Ritzheimer’s recent behavior is seems reasonable to me that is the kind of tattoos that got him tossed, not the innocuous reason he’d have us believe.

A few days ago, I read the Veterans on Patrol Facebook page and they determined that they were going to kidnap Ritzheimer and bring him back to Arizona to protect him from himself. The Tucson Daily Star reports that they got there yesterday and it didn’t go as well as they thought it would;

The Oregonian newspaper reported a fight broke out between Meyer’s group [Veterans on Patrol] and militant group member Blaine Cooper, whose Facebook page says he lives in Humboldt, Arizona.

Meyer said Cooper punched him in the back of the head; Phoenix resident Jon Ritzheimer said Meyer’s group shoved a guard, causing the guard to bloody his hand.

In a Facebook message Cooper said Meyer and two men entered the refuge Wednesday night and assaulted a disabled Vietnam veteran. They then “stormed into the refuge” and assaulted Cooper.

“I do believe Lewis (Meyer) [Veterans on Patrol] is a Paid Provocateur by the Fed’s (sic) to divide and destroy,” Cooper wrote in the post.

Meyer told the Oregonian he went to the compound to get a friend, but the friend decided to stay. Meyer then tried to get women and children in the compound to leave, but was stopped by militia members.

Yeah, who would have thought that kidnapping during daylight hours would be so difficult.

    IVAW = Losers.

    Just like these clowns.

  2. Dave Hardin says:

    You people just refuse to bask in all the Hope and Change going on in the world today. The Shit House Siege is going as planned.

    Well, except they didn’t get the French Vanilla coffee creamer they requested. Oh, and there was a guy that was treated at the local hospital for a black eye.

    With that kind of carnage going on its just a matter of time until the whole Gubbermint caves in. Obama will cave in to their demands, caving in is about the only thing he is consistent about.

    • Martinjmpr says:

      I disagree, Dave. I think Ritzheimer and his band of Keysone Kommandos are about the only people on the planet that Obama isn’t afraid of. And for good reason.

    • Fjardeson says:

      Dammit Dave, give me a spew warning. Shit House Siege? I’m rinsing coffee out of my mouse.

    • Marine Warrior says:

      I cannot quit laughing. I know this is some serious stuff going on up there but the Keystone Kop image my brainhousing group keeps generating just cannot make me serious. That clown all dressed in Cammies with the bush hat calling himself a Marine never made it past the delayed entry program…..The folks in Oregon deserve better.

  3. HMCS(FMF) ret. says:

    Jonn, I’m with you on Ritzheimer, I’m sure he got booted from the Marine Corps for what his tats said/endorsed (violating the tat policy), not that he pissed off someone. Plus, look at how buddy-buddy he is with the KKK on some of his previous “endeavors”. I’m sure that if anyone looked at some of these “militias” a little more closely, they probably have more than their fair share of people that are buddies with the Klan and other racist organizations.

    Nate did a real good job summing up the shitbirds in his article…

    I wonder how much longer it will be until that Band of Boneheads implodes upon itself like a flimsy commode? Trailer Court Commandos, I wonder if they took a stash of Soldier of Fortune magazines to keep themselves occupied?

      Why so they could fap to pictures of real warriors? Thanks for the mental image, BTW. 😉

    • PFM says:

      Probably just old copies of Cav Store, Brigade Quartermaster and Ranger Joe’s catalogs to gush over in their fanboy excitement.

    • Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

      Easy now, Col. Brown and AJ Venter put their lives into some of that work, just because some non-hacking wienies pop their corks over the stories and photos doesn’t make it real porn…

    • Reb says:

      Someone is missing from the names of idiots in Oregon, unless he showered for a week straight, cut off his hair and dyed it. Army Ranger Gundog Team F John Louis Woodward the only Vietnam vet called by Obama to do the honors…

  5. IDC SARC says:

    still no tactical split-tails…dammit

  6. Former11b says:

    I am shocked, SHOCKED, that a bunch of guys playing “pseudo-military tactical-dressup” were not actually people who had been in the military.

    These guys are just glorified airsofters with actual firearms.

  7. Skippy says:

    I shoot lighting bolts out of my ass. and rounds float around me

    Heeeee Hawwwwwwww !!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Dapandico says:

    I have see some defending the trailer park airsoft commando’s for ‘nutting up’ and taking on the Feds. Most didn’t finish their first enlistment & douche nozzles defend them as the new first line of defense. When the fecal matters hits the rotating blades, they will be the first to get the hell out of dodge.

  9. Medic09 says:

    Let’s not forget that the REAL locals don’t want Bundy and Co. there at all. Kinda amusing that the original locals look on these occupiers as – well, occupiers.

    • Reb says:

      Deb..a Buddie in Oregan said locals wanted them gone the first day. She closed her shop. Local people call in orders and they pick it up. Her husbands retired and not happy with GI Joes walking around with guns.

  10. OWB says:

    They would be amusing if they weren’t so stupid. Really ignorant stuff like accusing each other of being paid spies. Seriously? Why would any agency need to pay for what these clowns do for free?

  11. DevilChief says:

    I’m sorry, as soon as I saw “fight” I envisioned a bunch of pansy slapping and whining going on. Was that wrong?

  12. AW1Ed says:

    Armed group says it has accessed government files at refuge

    http://news.yahoo.com/call-supplies-oregon-standoff-enters-second-week-094737087.html

    “BURNS, Ore. (AP) — The leader of a small, armed group occupying a national wildlife refuge in southeastern Oregon said Monday he and his followers are going through government documents stored inside refuge buildings.”

    Government files? The round variety, no doubt.

  13. streetsweeper says:

    they must have gotten past the lock on the equipment shop and found flat mill, round and coarse metal files. Heh.
