Color me cynical, but I can't resist the suspicion that Mullet was put up to this stunt by somebody. If it weren't for the material support it receives from the federal government, the white supremacist movement wouldn't exist. It wouldn't surprise me at all to learn that somebody attached to a three-letter agency gave Mullet a handful of cash and told him to cut up trouble in Grant County. In any case, Mullet's visit certainly provided a timely distraction.
Grant County, Oregon could survive the presence of a handful of wretched but powerless neo-Nazi goons in its midst. It isn't likely to survive the ongoing war against its economy being waged by a pitilessly aggressive federal eco-bureaucracy.
