Hours after the Tuesday shooting death of #OregonStandoff militia member, LaVoy Finicum, David Fry, operator of YouTube channel “Defend Your Base”, posted a plea for “Help” from inside the Malheur Wildlife Refuge outside of Burns, Oregon. Fry’s dark whispery voiced video was steeped in gleeful paranoia and posted on Finicum’s YouTube channel as well as his own. Fry claims to have been running Finicum’s YouTube page “for a few days”.
“If you’re receiving this transmission, if you see this, uh , you should call out for arms to to uh help us and we need help.”
On Fry’s own YouTube channel other videos reportedly taken and uploaded from “inside the compound” have been uploaded and the broadcaster has been live streaming since last night. Channel owner says it’s “battle time” decrying,
“These are trying times. So, I’m ready to take my stand. You know, give me liberty or give me death. So, I’ve made my choice …”.
Fry claims himself to be the ‘only media live streaming from inside the compound’ which is probably true if by any stretch one can call him media. Pete Santilli, the militia’s main media man is currently in jail facing federal charges after last night’s arrests of Santilli, Ammon Bundy and 6 others..
Fry and 2-3 others can be seen tensely awaiting their self-ignited rapture behind a CAT 320-D tractor. At least one woman is there and she is said to be pregnant. Her husband, another militia member called for reinforcements just before 9am PDT telling Patriots to kill if anyone tries to stop them.
“Media’s been ordered to leave. That means they’re coming to kill us.” … “All you military that’s been fighting over seas; you can fight for your country right here in America. get here. Get some. This is history in the making. There are no laws in this United States now. This is a free for all Armageddon. <garbled> … any military, or law enforcement, or feds that stand up and fuck their oath; don’t abide by their oath, are the enemy! If they stop you from getting here, KILL THEM!”
Andrew Dymburt of Oregon’s KOIN6 said media has been asked to leave while noting 5 vehicles did leave the refuge during the night. It is said Blaine Cooper was one of those who left. No one knows the exact number of members still holed up at Malheur.
Fry’s live feed is currently down at the time of this writing; whether this is an indication of action taken at the refuge is unknown. An FBI press conference is scheduled for 11:00 a.m. today.
