A clear and present danger

The fringes of the SJW media would like nothing better than to generate another Ruby Ridge out of Owen Benjamin's Beartaria:

A group of nine of Benjamin’s neighbors have grown concerned about the prospect of Benjamin’s fans trekking out to the property, which they say is zoned for agricultural or forest uses.

In an email to county officials, one neighbor pointed out that the property isn’t serviced by utilities, raising the threat that inexperienced campers could start forest fires in their attempts to have campfires. The property is connected to a narrow, crude road, according to the neighbors, whose meager maintenance amounts to residents adding rocks to it every year.

Benjamin’s neighbors have also become alarmed over the possibility of organized military training at the property.

“This poses a clear and present danger,” a Vietnam War veteran who lives near Benjamin told the Kootenai Valley Times. “This is a commercial enterprise offering training in weapons and tactics and not a use allowed in this zone. There is no conceivable reason to allow this use. If we wait too long, it will be too late.”

Benjamin told The Daily Beast no guns have been fired on the property since he purchased it. But his attempts to downplay the possibility of guns at Ursa Rio have been undermined by his habit of describing grandiose plans for the land in hours-long livestreams several times a week, with the most incendiary statements archived and analyzed by his online detractors.

For example, Benjamin has often referenced having a paramilitary force at his property, saying he is “friends with, basically, a paramilitary group” in Idaho.

“If you try to squat on my land when I offer you campgrounds, I have my own paramilitary squad,” Benjamin said in one video, warning off “Bears” who might try to live on the land permanently.

“I’d have my own private paramilitary force, which is always a good thing,” Benjamin said in another video.

Benjamin insists he was just joking about the paramilitary.

“I do not have a paramilitary squad,” Benjamin told The Daily Beast in an email. “I was making a joke as a comedian. Unless you consider my goats and chickens a military.”

In his videos, Benjamin has also discussed the prospect of guns at “Beartaria.”

“Shooting range?” Benjamin said in one video, describing his plans for a bear-themed community in Idaho. “Yes! Will there be a gun range? Yes!”

By his own accounts, Benjamin does not come off as an ideal neighbor. In several videos, he relates stories where he berates store employees or fellow customers who asked him to wear a face mask. In one incident, according to Benjamin, he called an elderly man in a post office who asked him to wear a mask a “crusty old hunchback” and accused him of being a pervert, saying that masks are only used by criminals or perverts.

After a reporter in the area covered the controversy over Benjamin’s property, the comedian baselessly accused the reporter during a livestream of being a pedophile and mocked him for using a wheelchair.

The entire article is nothing but a series of baseless accusations. Notice that not a single one of these "concerned neighbors" is named. But it's a good idea to keep this article in mind if you think you're ever going to escape the conflict simply by moving and minding your own business. Once the media decides you are dangerous to it - and the defeat of Patreon in court by Owen's Bears combined with the retreat from arbitration on the part of every Big Tech company from Amazon on down is probably what alarmed the media - they will always look to find a way to sic some sort of authority on you.

And unfortunately, unlike in Europe where defamation laws are still enforced to the point that a well-known television celebrity is now facing bankruptcy for a single tweet falsely accusing a woman of having had an affair, the US media can still expect to get away with nonsense like this. So remember, everything you say and write will be used against you in the court of public opinion.

Knowing Owen, he'll befriend those frightened neighbors before the end of the summer, at which point the Daily Beast will be forced to invent some other fake controversy. But Owen really needs to up his media game. He really should have known the correct way to address the reporter's alleged idiosyncracies was to say that "a group of the reporter's neighbors have grown concerned about the prospect of the reporter being a pedophile and fear that he might run over their children's toes with his wheelchair."

Only a gamma dork can write this and think he's making his point. While Owen is funny, the SJW reactions to him are always funnier.

What are the chances the "Vietnam War veteran" is a draft dodger? Not that there's anything wrong with that because it was a pointless war that accomplished nothing.

Wasn’t the line : Masks are for perverts and criminals. Which are you? — See? No accusation. That incident also hatched a few boomertard riffs, such as “Where’s your mask?” That became “Where’s your third mask?”

All the neighbors are very concerned after we called them up and told them all of the monstrous behavior Owen is planning according to reddit trolls. One neighbor said "Owen really plans on burning down my house and raping my family? I would be concerned about that!"

Meanwhile , Benjamin, whose real last name is Smith, has baselessly accused us of spreading false rumors from anonymous sources.

Blogger JACIII June 02, 2021 7:00 AM  

The Kootenai Valley Times was formed October 2019. These fake local "newspapers" or "news" sites have been popping up all over rural and suburban America. They are leftist propaganda outlets used to give a local façade of credibility to narratives the big outlets want to push. The NYT recently employed one of these "local" pop-up newspapers in a hit piece on Garland Favorito, who is the man running the Georgia election suits and audit process.

Not a fan of Owen, but "a Vietnam War veteran who lives near Benjamin told the Kootenai Valley Times." << chances this isn't a real person or is just a lawyer in Boise approach 100%.
Jews, however, can make themselves particularly annoying neighbors. Sometimes, even when they are trying not to be. So, if the neighbors decide to burn him out will it really be a surprise?

Blogger Teleport me off this rock June 02, 2021 7:08 AM  

I'm willing to bet a substantial amount that if any of these neighbors actually exist (which I will not bet on), they're all new arrivals from some blue state shithole, even in Sandpoint.

And by the way something, I had better-written articles than this screed rejected by my high school paper. The internet, it do make the suck grow something fierce.

"But it's a good idea to keep this article in mind if you think you're ever going to escape the conflict simply by moving and minding your own business."

The only way out is through.
I know people who tried to do what Owen is doing. The next "attack" is going to be over zoning, "wetlands" bullshit - which I have seen them do personally - and nitpicking every last i and t.
In Washington a friend was basically railroaded in court and they tried to charge him some kind of "thousands of dollars a day fine" retroactive to the early 1970s. But after Edward Snook at the U.S Observer was through with that case, the fines were gone and a judge was in early retirement with half the county scumbags pointing fingers at each other saying "I didn't do it! He did!".

I highly recommend Owen contact Ed. He loves these cases. Ed really can make the rubble bounce.

@10 "The Kootenai Valley Times was formed October 2019."

Given the way the surveillance state extends its tentacles everywhere, as demonstrated numerous times by AC, I would not be surprised if these were already assets in place and being deployed to a new use. If true, in a way, it blows their covers. They were always there, and merely considered weird or creepy, but otherwise, one of them. Now they are known to be something else. Smells like desperation if you ask me. What Owen is doing with Beartaria and Ursa Rio is amazing. There is a Beartaria group in Israel. This kind of positivism must be stopped at all costs.

Blogger Jeff June 02, 2021 8:11 AM  

Hahaha, I'm willing to bet those "9 neighbors" have 11 cousins and 666 friends who think that 33 of Owen's chickens are planning mass pecking.

Leave it to those Vietnam Vets. They know a clear and present danger to the USA when they see one. It usually looks like dirt villagers running away from their burning homes.

Not a good omen, Owen.

Moving may the only practical option when surrounded by people who will burn you out, swat you, report you to the thought police, before walking over and chatting about lawn care. Just spent a month in a predominately Euro heritage city, not even far away. I didn't keel over from the lack of diversity and take-out options.

There are definitely SJWs creating their own "local newspapers" around us, can confirm.

The level of professionalism in the production and printing indicates an organized structure beyond just a few people in town.

They claim the funding comes from "local advertising & donations". I imagine it's something like 2% to 98% ratio with some deep, evil pockets behind the scenes.

Also - I think the allegations about the reporter are clearly more concerning. Everything from the painstakingly forced smile in his profile picture to his valley-girl way of speaking indicate something is rotten there.

It’s been great hearing Owen talk and his succinct explanations of how things like the “Moon Landing” and Helen Keller can only be scams top all others, but he has what often seems a totally out of control ego, and should really be careful... hopefully, the daily beast jinxed any possibilities of what their headline portends. Owen seems like just the type to go off the rails at the wrong person, glad he cut-down/quit drinking

The Daily Beast is my number one source for finding the best of the Nationalist right. Pastor Douglas Wilson, also of Idaho, and Fritz Berggren, PhD, of bloodandfaith.com are the latest the Beast have led me to. According to the Beast, Wilson is quietly establishing a theocratic state in Moscow, Idaho, and they were unable to have Berggren fired from the State Department because he keeps his blog and his career position entirely separate.

I used to think that. Now I see what he does like that line from Jurassic Park explaining raptors attacking the electrified fences. "They never attack the same place twice."

Owen recognizes that most of the limitations we think we have are just psychological conditioning.

Blogger Steve Canyon June 02, 2021 10:17 AM  

Most of those people that live, and have lived for generations, in those rural areas get their information from their neighbors over coffee at the local diner, after church, and at some social function like some neighbor's daughter getting married. That's a hell of a network they're going to have to counteract to get this "paper" to have any sort of propaganda value. They don't trust outsiders, with very good reason.

Blogger Akulkis June 02, 2021 10:29 AM  

Hard to believe that it's 3 decades already.

Blogger OldOutsider June 02, 2021 10:39 AM  

The beast system is trying to raise the alarm as it rightly perceives Owen as a threat. They want people to be wholly dependent upon the corporate commercial system and any alternatives should be smeared. The problem is the audience who will believe such nonsense is the exact audience that desire to remain in hell. This will pass after a short bout of tantrums and gnashing of teeth. The Good, True and Beautiful will always win in the end.

Nobody wants another Randy Weaver type incident--- where justice was never served to this day.

Nice. A person who the left would normally characterize as a dangerous, right wing, trump supporting (and so on) is now a "concerned neighbor" worried about proper land usage. From his mother's basement in Baltimore, would be my guess.

About 3 years ago, when I first heard of Owen here, I watched one of his videos. That night I had a dream. I was listening to an old style knobbed radio like from the 30s, there was a raging demonic scream coming from it that was going after him. I mean, it was pissed and very powerful, one of those weird things you just know in a dream. I tried to contact him through the radio to warn him, but couldn't as he didn't know me. Been praying for him ever since. He has their attention.
