A video posted Sunday on Facebook shows militia men in Burns, Oregon using shofars (ram horns played by Jews on the high holidays) to call on Christians to stand with them as they occupy a wildlife refuge in a standoff with the federal government, Gawker reported.

The 43-second video shows two men standing in the snow blowing the shofars. The clip was posted online by Blaine Cooper, who refers to the Jewish instrument as a “battle trumpet.”

“Christians, the battle trumpet has been sounded; time to rise!” he captioned the video. “Call to action, send in the troops to stand with us in Burns, Oregon.”

A group of armed and mainly white militia men are occupying the Malheur national wildlife refuge, a federally owned building in Burns, the Guardian reported. The group said they are fighting the US government over federal regulations of public lands.

    The government will now come down on them with the weight of the world. Jewish shofars, and Christians…double trouble… that’s a red line they should never cross with this present regime. Palestinian flags, Isis flags and they would be assured a victory. These Christians with their guns and bibles are going to need some Jewish doctors. Post haste!

    What a collection of mentally ill moppets..

    Knowing all of these gentlemen will soon never be able to own a firearm again (as felons can’t), is just kind of ‘fun’ to know.

    They have to know it too.. The ONE thing in this world they truly love, they will be stripped of t heir rights to possess, because they demonstrated they were not responsible and societally able to maintain and operate such an important tool.

    Too bad losers.

    I haven’t eaten meat in over 40 years, and while I think it is fine and dandy others do, the argument of CATTLE having precedent over PEOPLE on OUR public lands, makes me all kinds of disgusted with these cowboy want-to-be’s who seemingly don’t have jobs or family enough to hold their interest, so they come from out of state to krap in MY (our) yard..

    Go home (get out of the park, our public lands) outsiders.. God this is a fantastic place without you.
