Are They Really Torturing Ammon Bundy?
Lisa Bundy, wife of imprisoned protester Ammon Bundy, received several messages from people who had heard her description of what happened to her husband while in a 3 foot by 3 foot shower stall in the Nevada Southern Detention Center and challenged her as to its veracity. They said they could not believe what she was saying was true.
Therein lies the very essence of what is wrong with America, especially Main Street in Mayberry America. Americans live in a bubble. A bubble consisting of trips to Walmart, piano recitals, walking the dog and weekend outings in the RV. No, the description that Lisa Bundy gives us does not fit in our bubble and so we reject it. She must be exaggerating, she must be embellishing the truth in order to get more sympathy. Maybe she is lying to get more donations. This is America, for goodness sake, things like what she describes happened to her husband Ammon simply don’t happen in America. Now, if he was in North Korea, then yes, that and worse can happen there.
Those who know Ammon Bundy will testify that a more honest, humble, meek and mild man than him is difficult to find. Darkness hates light. Ammon radiates light.
We are seeing, first hand, the same dynamics that brought about the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. The same hate, the same evil, the same lust for pain and humiliation that was poured out on the Lamb of God. People like Bundy either bring out the best or the worst in humanity. Right now, he is bringing out the worst as the prison guards and their handlers seek to break him and his spirit. Ammon is also popping the bubble for millions of Americans who now must either wake up to the awful reality of what Americans are capable of doing to other Americans or, they simply roll over and go back to sleep.
During his prison phone call to Kelli Stewart, he was describing what happened to him. Kelli later remarked, “That is not the same Ammon that we know. He sounds like a broken man.” Many people responded in comments, “No, he can’t be broken”. “Don’t let them break you Ammon.” “The Bundys will not be broken.” We are not in his place, we have no comprehension of the pain he is going through. Ammon will be broken, it is inevitable. Everybody has their breaking point. Instead of asking him not to break, you should break open your wallet and contribute to www.ammonbundydefense.com , break away from your TV set, break away from your favorite recreational activity and write a letter to your congressional representative.
Break the bubble that surrounds you and face reality.
Ammon told Lisa that he believed that the prisons are training grounds for people to become cruel and without compassion, so that they can later be used against the general civilian population. The day will come that the barbaric behavior against him inside prison, will be used on a wider scale. Bundy reported that his beating and his mistreatment were filmed. Could those films be used for training?
For those of you who are fully awake to the reality of what is happening, now is the time to act. Become a bubble popper. Help others come out of their bubbles, the bubble known as the American Dream. If enough people wake up and demand that their country return to its constitutional and moral roots, then the American Dream of prosperity and happiness can be restored, built on a solid foundation of morality and goodness, not on a bubble of illusion and denial.
