Mike Vanderbeogh, leader of the militia group Three Percenters, spoke to militia members still gathered at Cliven Bundy’s ranch in Nevada last week,warning that the country is “staring a civil war in its bloody face.”
The name ‘Three Percenters ‘ is derived from the fact that 3 percent of colonial British subjects took up arms against the King during the revolutionary war. It should be noted that Vandeboegh wrote a novel that allegedly inspired a domestic terrorist plot in 2011, but whatevs.
The nice guy Three Percenter said, “All over this country, we are still staring civil war in its bloody face.”
Vanderboegh went on to claim that Sen. Harry Reid, who has criticized the Bundy ranch militias, “is promising us all civil war on a vast scale, because state-sponsored violence is they only way they can win an argument with free people, especially free people who are armed and who are willing to use those arms in defense of liberty.”
Right Wing Watch reports, “Vanderboegh then told the legend of an Alabama woman named Jenny Brooks whose husband and son, according to Vanderboegh’s version of the story, were killed by state law enforcement collecting taxes for the Confederate government. According to the tale, Brooks went after the men who had killed her family, killed two of them in return, and turned one of their skulls into a soap dish.”
At that point, Vanderboegh pulled out a skull and declared that he would present it to Harry Reid as the “2014 Award for Incitement to Civil War.”
He added, “Don’t poke the wolverine with a sharp stick, Harry, unless you want your balls ripped off.”

Federal law enforcement officials are investigating threats made against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid by Cliven Bundy supporters. To prove they are not ‘domestic terrorists’ as Reid claimed, some of them are threatening his life.
