“I’D RATHER DIE ON MY FEET THAN LIVE ON MY KNEES”

January 27, 2016 ~ Independent Journal

While details remain sketchy and accusations abound, two things are clear: Ammon Bundy, leader of the Oregon standoff, was arrested Tuesday night, and spokesman Robert “Lavoy” Finicum was shot and killed.

This interview with Finicum was conducted the day before he was killed.

He gained fame for an earlier interview he did from beneath a blue tarp, while reportedly holding a shotgun on his lap. Along with his wife, he cared for 11 foster children.

In the initial interview, which was conducted shortly after the occupation of the wildlife refuge in Oregon began, he said he was not afraid to die:

I have been raised in the country all my life. I love dearly to feel the wind on my face. To see the sun rise, to see the moon. I have no intention of spending any of my days in a concrete box.

He said he’d rather be killed than be arrested:

Absolutely … I have no intention of spending any of my days in a concrete box. There are things more important than your life and freedom is one of them. I’m prepared to defend freedom.

In addition to Ammon Bundy, his brother, Ryan, and six others were arrested.

      You know as well as we that no evidence incriminating the FBI is ever released to the public.

    This just shows that the government has nothing to fear from gun-toting Americans.

    Americans are willing to act tough but are not willing to engage in a real gunfight when being shot at, and killed, by tyrannical Government thugs.

    So the guns serve no real Second Amendment agenda, which was proposed to throw off a tyrannical Government.

    If the people were holding out hope, that this group of people would set the country back on the right path, that hope has to now have vanished.

    The Country is lost and there is no getting it back.

    I agree with him, I would rather die on my feet then live on my knees and for anybody who doesn’t feel this way, you are a brainwashed fool!
