My guess is that they'll be only too eager to use any excuse to declare a "moral victory" and run away.
Might look something like this:

Re: Why it is important
There really is a large current today of folk that see the Government as the enemy and that support both the Bundys, Trump and the whole principle of direct opposition even when done by force.
Except that these hillbilly's and their knuckle-dragging supporters are also gigantic hypocrites. I would love to see how they would react if BlackLivesMatter performed an armed takeover of a Federal building. They would be screaming at the top of their lungs about 'terrorists' and the need to 'take them out'.
So in their eyes, if you are white, Republican, and an NRA member, you should be allowed to perform armed resistance against government 'oppression'. But if anyone of color does it, well, they are terrorists.
Makes me realize we took an incorrect approach during the Bush presidency. We shouldn't have been pushing a constitutional amendment against gay marriage. We should have created one that prevented brother and sister from marrying and creating a batch of inbred cretins.

Re: Bundys victims of Constitution-violating government tyranny
I would recommend that you read this UN report
You mean you don't have a video? That's your only shot.
Hey, maybe a picture will speak a thousand words:

Re: Bundys victims of Constitution-violating government tyranny
It's hard for me to think of them as legitimate protests though there may be some clueless sincere liberals there too.
You don't have to worry. I read that there were some dogmatic mis-informed conservatives counter-protesting as well. So maybe they cancelled each other out?
See? We can both be dismissive regarding people. Although to be fair, the Trump protests involve signs and marches. The Bundy 'protests' involved using guns and taking over a government building.
Oh, and here is an image you might find intriguing:
Food for thought.....
