Ammon Bundy And His Outlaw COVID Meet-Up Crew Are Hosting An Easter Potluck - 2020-04-10
For weeks, Bundy, who's best known for leading the 41-day armed occupation of a wildlife refuge in Oregon, has been holding crowded meetings meant to defy Idaho Gov. Brad Little's (R) recent order against large gatherings.
The latest, on Thursday night, included upwards of 70 people crammed into a room no larger than a basketball court. Speakers performatively coughed and wheezed, shared a microphone and, at one point, recommended that those with flu symptoms drink tonic water. (Quinine has not been proven effective against the disease at all.)
Toward the end of Thursday's meeting, a former state senate candidate and marketing consultant in Bundy's crew announced the latest effort to "further snub our noses in the faces of all these morons who are telling us what we can and cannot do": An Easter service, followed by a potluck.
