Bureau of Land Management workers are stripping BLM logos from their cars after being threatened by hooded gunmen still raging because of the doings at Cliven Bundy’s ranch. Gunmen tried to intimidate a BLM wrangler in Western Utah.

The wrangler was driving a load of horses and burros north on Interstate 15 about 11 a.m. near Mills when a dark blue Dodge 1500 extended-cab pickup pulled up alongside the wrangler. The two occupants “told him he was No. 1 with that certain gesture,” said Eric Reid, the wrangler’s supervisor at the U.S. Bureau of Land Management’s Fillmore Field Office.

The pickup fell back and the wrangler continued north. A few minutes later, the pickup reappeared, Reid said. The men, wearing hoods, held up a sign, apparently scrawled on a piece of paper, that read, “You need to die.” One of the men pointed what appeared to be a Glock handgun at the wrangler.

The wrangler tried to make out a license plate number, but the plate had been covered with duct tape, Reid said.

After watching the pickup drive past Nephi, the wrangler reported the threat. The Utah Highway Patrol searched for the pickup but has not found it.

“We are investigating this and investigating it thoroughly,” UHP Sgt. Todd Royce said.

BLM officials do not believe the men were stalking the wrangler in connection to the agency’s controversial wild horse and burro roundups, but rather that they noticed the BLM logo on his truck and trailer and saw an opportunity to harass a federal employee, Reid said.

    Why the hoods? Big brave guys with guns have to hide their faces?
    This is not a “well regulated militia” – this is about a bunch of wanna-be martyrs who have nothing to do with this entire incident. For a big man, Bundy is a fool to let these guys run loose – he is going to get much more than he is asking for.

      there’s only one way to become a martyr.

    Where are the police and the National Guard?

  3. Budda May 8th, 2014 at 7:34 pm

    This is not going to end well. These Bundy-Baggers are getting bolder.. Law enforcement needs to take control of this and fast.

  4. Shades May 8th, 2014 at 7:51 pm

    I want a real journalist to ask Sen. Heller if he still thinks these yahoos are patriots.

  5. J.D. May 9th, 2014 at 4:58 am

    There was no “masked gunmen.” Its a boogeyman to slander the good patriots at the Bundy Ranch. Nice try.

      Hey ya one post wonder.
      You live in Texas ,right?
      Where’s your support for Patriotic landowners in your state?

      • J.D. May 9th, 2014 at 5:39 am

        Let’s all resort to ad hominem attacks on any one who disagrees with us. That will solve all our problems.

          Where’s your support for Patriotic landowners in your state?

          • J.D. May 9th, 2014 at 5:49 am

            I refuse to argue with morons,

          • foxnewslieseveryday May 9th, 2014 at 6:07 am

            Where did i ask you to argue anything?
            I asked you a simple question.
            Where’s your support for Patriotic landowners in your state?

            You’re an American patriot right?

  6. foxnewslieseveryday May 9th, 2014 at 5:03 am

    You would think these militia type so called Patriots would move their operation to Texas and Nebraska where property owners like 78-year-old Texas landowner Eleanor Fairchild are being jackbooted by Un-American Corporate Fascists.

  7. foxnewslieseveryday May 9th, 2014 at 5:09 am

    J.D. Are you in favor of the patriot gun owners move their help back east to join the cause there?

    “Some landowners in the path of the proposed Keystone XL pipeline want to
    know where the support for them has been, since their private property
    will actually be taken away without their approval.”

  8. foxnewslieseveryday May 9th, 2014 at 5:15 am

    Shouldn’t these gun totin’ rebels be over supporting Texas farmer Julia Trigg Crawford.
    She turned down TransCanada’s original offer for her land. The company
    took her to court to claim eminent domain to take it anyway.

  9. foxnewslieseveryday May 9th, 2014 at 5:18 am

    What about rancher John Harter?
    Doesn’t he deserve this so called patriot militia help and support?

    “In South Dakota, rancher John Harter has been fighting TransCanada’s attempt to run the northern leg of the pipeline through his property, near Colome. Harter was in court on
    Monday, where he said TransCanada was trying to force him to sign a settlement agreement.

    That land, Harter said, has been in his family since 1939 — ranched first by his grandfather, then by his father, and, since the early ’90s, by him. He said he was reluctant to agree to pipeline from the beginning, but knew TransCanada would
    probably force it on him. He verbally agreed to a route that was amenable. But then, he said, the company changed the proposed route without consulting him.”

    “If this was a green energy project, or wind project, Republicans would have been outraged from the beginning.”

    • J.D. May 9th, 2014 at 5:41 am

      It is a green project. The BLM land grab is so Harry Reid can sell the land to the Chinese to build solar collectors. Lining his pockets in the process.

            “I person” (sic) have citations in my posts.

            I’m waiting for yours.
            or is it just another baseless assertion?

  11. foxnewslieseveryday May 9th, 2014 at 5:47 am

    Wheres the so called patriotic militia?

    A foreign owned corporation wants to take Texas ranchers land.

    I smell a fascist communist socialist Obama plot to get all of the lunatics in one place, then erect a concentration camp around them, housing them like Japanese Americans in WW2 but adding behavior modification to the menu so that we will end up with a godless communist gunless Satanic state.
