Special Delivery: The Oregon Militia Is Getting Sent Sex Toys

Photographed by Dan McCoy.
Jon Ritzheimer, a member of the militia that took over Oregon's Malheur National Wildlife Refuge almost two weeks ago, is sick of getting hate mail. Specifically, he's frustrated with getting shipments of sex toys. The men and women of the group issued a list of supplies they'd like to receive — one that rivals a Bridezilla's wedding registry in length and specificity.

Nowhere on that list, Ritzheimer would like you to know, will you see a "bag of dicks."

"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," Ritzheimer captioned a video on Facebook, "I'm done living in fear of an oppressing force."

It's well known that the forces of oppression love bachelorette party gag gifts as a tool for silencing their opponents. But no matter how many phallic items you mail them, these "patriots" demanding their "liberty" (and a digital camera with charger) say they'll persevere. And they want you to join them. As Ritzheimer says in his video, "If you want to be part of history in the making, you need to get out here and show some support." Just leave your dildos at home.

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.
