‘Stop sending us dildos’: Armed militant in Oregon reacts to ‘bag of d**ks’
Opponents of the men currently occupying a federal building in Oregon are using the weapon of humor and ridicule by sending dozens of dildos and other penis-shaped presents to the armed militants.
Calling it “hate mail”, “militia” organizer Jon Ritzheimer is refusing to bend over and take it, after posting a video on Facebook complaining about the special ‘packages’.
“They spend and waste their money on all this hateful stuff to send out here to us, and buy this ridiculous stuff, even this one was really funny, a bag of d**ks,” Ritzheimer said. “For the rest of you ‘patriots’ out there, twiddling your thumbs, wondering whether or not you should come out, well, now’s the time.”
It's sad that there are people who would spend this kind of money on this rather than spending it to do good in the world. I'm done living in fear of an oppressing force. I'm going to uphold my oath to the Constitution and sleep great at night knowing that I did everything in my power to ensure what our founding fathers did for us will not be lost. To my family, I love you very much and I am sorry I can't be there with you. Please look at this as a deployment, only this time I'm actually serving my country rather than being sent over seas to line the pockets of corrupt politicians. It is our sacrifice as a family that will make this country great again, not some election. And we are not alone. I am among some of the most honorable, and selfless people I have ever met. People who are dedicated to making the same sacrifice for this country. Read the constitution people. Get educated and don't let your rights be taken. If your a Patriot and you feel the calling in your heart then all I can say is follow your heart. Don't let the fear consume you. We all have lives but if we don't make the sacrifice what kind of country are we leaving for our children. The status quo can't go on any longer. We either take a stand against tyranny or we fail. Come be a part of history. And I am so proud that our country has become civilized enough that we can bring about change and right this wrong without any bloodshed. America is blessed.Posted by Jon Ritzheimer on Monday, January 11, 2016
The Oregonian newspaper described his video rant as a "tantrum."

The Oregon Militia called for supplies. People set them condoms, dildos and a bag of (gummy) dicks. There's still good in the world.— Nash (@Nash076) January 13, 2016
Jon Ritzheimer video about people sending bags of dicks to #BundyMilitia is hilarious. Can't help but wonder what's going on behind doors— Jessie L Terry (@JessieLTerry) January 13, 2016
This week, an Oregon judge says he will "send Mr Bundy the bill" for security costs of $60,000 to $70,000 per day, referring to the group's leader Ammon Bundy.
Ritzheimer is a former Marine and Iraq War veteran who reportedly sponsored a drawing contest in Arizona of Islamic Prophet Mohammed and operates an ecommerce website called Rogue Infidel which sells "F**k Islam" T-shirts and bumper stickers.
He was discharged by the military for violating its tattoo policy and says he supports Donald Trump in the 2016 US presidential race.
Trump said last week that he believes the self-proclaimed “patriots” should stand down.
"You have to maintain law and order, no matter what," Trump told The Hill.
