Victoria Sharp is in the midst of her 15 minutes of fame. She’s an 18-year-old girl from Kansas who went to Oregon to be at the standoff. She was near the vehicle that plowed through a roadblock when an occupier was killed by police.
The occupier wasn’t a black thug and he wasn’t raping women in a New York City park, so you probably haven’t heard much about it.
That’s Victoria and her family in Oregon.
In one of dozens of YouTube videos posted this past month featuring teenager Victoria Sharp, who is from these parts, she flashes a wide smile when an online broadcaster offers to produce “The Victoria Sharp Show.”
It would play to a patriot movement audience.
“Will you please be the spokesman for our youth concerning our Constitution and our freedoms?” asked the broadcaster.
“Yes,” she said.
As for hosting a show, Sharp, 18, said she needed time to rest after her harrowing afternoon near the occupied Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon.
On Jan. 26 she witnessed authorities shoot dead one of the occupiers whose pickup truck had plowed past a roadblock.
