The Cliven Bundy Klan are at it again, this time calling for packing a public debate over public lands in Utah at a meeting called for Wednesday in Salt Lake City....

I wonder if they'll be showing up with assault rifles at the public never know with this bunch of right wing nutcases.

I'm posting so that public lands supporters and others interested in restraining the excesses of the Bundy Klan will know of their plans for appropriate organizational and operational responses.

Communique from the Bundy Klan (below):



We need some support in Salt Lake City, Utah.  State Rep. Ken Ivory will be debating the Transfer of Public Lands with former BLM Director Pay Shay.

As you may know Rep. Ken Ivory spearheaded a Utah Law to force the Federal Government to turn over control of all public lands in the State of Utah.

On Wednesday May 14th, The Tribune's Jennifer Napier-Pearce will moderate an Oxford-style debate on the resolution: "The State of Utah is best suited to manage public lands within its borders."

Arguing for the Transfer Of Public Lands will be Utah House Speaker Rebecca Lockhart and West Jordan Republican Rep. Ken Ivory, president of the American Lands Council.

Arguing against the resolution will be former BLM director Pat Shea and Dan McCool, political science professor and director of the Environmental and Sustainability Studies Program at the University of Utah.

The event, which begins at 7 p.m., is free and open to the public at the Salt Lake City Main Library, 210 E. 400 South.

Make sure you show up early and bring lots of friends.  Lets pack this house early, seating is limited.

Those attending will have an opportunity to vote on which team was most persuasive.

This is your opportunity to learn more about both sides of the Transfer of Public lands issue.

Please attend and support Ken Ivory, Rebecca Lockhart and the Transfer of Public Lands.  This is a very important and key element of correcting the massive government over reach we all suffer from today.  

Thank you,

Mon May 12, 2014 at 10:51 PM PT: I wonder if Cliven Bundy and his supporters will want to drive ATVs into the public library.

12:01 AM PT: I've emailed the Salt Lake City Tribune, Utah Democrats, Utah Sierra Club, the public lands debate participants, the Mayor of Salt Lake City, the BLM and others to pass on the Bundy Klan call of their nutcase supporters to pack the debate.  

12:14 AM PT: On tactical consideration of advocacy communications, Utah progressive Democrats should make some demands on Gov. Gary Herbert (R):

9:12 AM PT: This diary is only the second time for me on the 'recommended list'....thanks DK community.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
