Ammon Bundy’s far-right anti-government movement is expanding, according to The Institute for Research and Education on Human Rights (IREHR) and the Montana Human Rights Network.
According to IREHR researchers, Bundy’s protests over COVID-19 have increased to a team of 153 “assistants” in sixteen states. Notable participants in Ammon Bundy’s movement include: Angela Clemons, a far-right conspiracy theorist from Arkansas, B.J Soper, Redmond, Oregon, Brand Thornton, of Open-Carry Utah, Casey Whalen, Coeur D’Alene, Idaho, and Derrik Staheli, St. George, Utah.
Others include Diego Rodriquez, Boise, Idaho, Joey Gibson, Vancouver, Washington, Kelli Stewart, Camas, Washington, Krisanne Hall, Wellborn, Florida, Mark French, Paradise, Montana, Nick Ramlow, Kalispell, Montana, Roger Roots, Livingston, Montana, Sean, and Sandra Anderson, Riggins, Idaho, and Tony Pellegrino, San Mateo, California.
According to Bundy, “if local, state, or federal officials attempt to enforce laws that the group does not like, People’s Rights is prepared to adopt a violent posture.”
Bundy has attracted many militia members, Three Percenters, Oath Keepers, and other paramilitary groups, according to the IREHR report.
“Rather, the network rests upon a melange of conspiracy theories brought in by the leadership from various corners of the far-right,” the report says. “Conspiracy theories from QAnon, the John Birch Society, Three Percenters and militia-types, Christian nationalists, and hardcore anti-Semites have circulated throughout the People’s Rights network.”
