Ammon Bundy, leader of the armed anti-government group occupying the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon, compared his group's efforts to those of late civil rights activist Rosa Parks on Twitter

Several twitter users stated the obvious to shut down Bundy's comparsion and expressed further discontent with #YALLQAEDA

In addition to Bundy's controversial Twitter remarks, yesterday he told CNN he is not opposed to government, in fact, he borrowed $530,000 from the Small Business Administration for his business Valet Fleet Service LLC in 2010. He does not view himself as being hypocritical because he says the loan "was an effort in assisting the people in using their rights." He says he believes there is a role for government, and it's protecting the states from the "outside world."

Another item to note coming out of Oregon this morning is occupier LaVoy Finicum saying he would rather die defending the building than be arrested by the FBI. According to NBC, many of the occupiers believe that there are warrants out for their arrest and Finicum said he does not want to spend any time locked up and would rather give up his life. To further drive his point home, he broke away from the group and set up a chair outside. All he took with him was a sleeping bag, a blue tarp and his gun to protect himself

Finicum says he wanted officers to be able to find him if they wanted to serve him an arrest warrant

The group is still not giving up on their occupation and say they are in it for the long haul. Today marks the fourth day since they took over the space.
