State Of Deseret: The Interests Shared of the Oregon Militia Movement, Koch Brothers and LDS Church

Oregon

ZINDA: I suggest in my piece that it's no secret that the anti-public lands Western movement here is as a result of folks from Utah. Brigham Young and LDS people, when they came West, their intention was to develop the state of Deseret. They had fled New York and then from Illinois, and were persecuted by people in the East and were seeking asylum, if you will, or they were refugees of a different sense, and decided that they would head West in wagon carts and establish the state of Deseret, which would be their own. During that time period Brigham Young sent people into Mexico, into Arizona, to California, and even into Harney County where Ammon Bundy is now, to claim the state of Deseret for Utah.So how does this, how does this get into LDS culture. The LDS culture is very protective of the state of Deseret. And from the beginning Brigham Young had suggested--I'm going to read a bit of a quote, if I may. "And in relation," he says, "and when the Constitution of the United States hangs, as it were, upon a single thread, they will have to call the Mormon elders to save it from utter destruction, and they will step forward to do it." And that was the Journal of Discourses, 2-1-82.And so from the very beginning LDS people were taught to defend the Constitution as they saw it, and defend the state of Deseret. And backing up a bit, I would suggest that people read the book by John Krakauer, called Under the Banner of Heaven, whereby he speaks about LDS, or fringe groups of the LDS faith, and revelatory theology. Which--Joseph Smith had Mormonism revealed to him in New York. And at the time, Joseph Smith then suggested that everyone had the ability to speak with the Lord, and was to act accordingly. Later Joseph Smith and the apostles got rid of that doctrine and left it to the prophet.However there are fringe groups, particularly here in southern Utah, and the FLDS people, the Fundamentalist Latter-day Saints in Colorado City, adhere to this question of revelation. That's where Warren Jeffs comes in.

Militias are the ancestors of the modern National Guard, not of self-proclaimed "patriots" who show utter contempt for any form of authority beyond themselves. The extremists playing solider in the woods of Oregon are at best criminals and…
