“U.S. Sen. Harry Reid on Thursday called [armed, militia-supported] supporters of Bunkerville rancher Cliven Bundy ‘domestic terrorists’ because they defended him against a Bureau of Land Management cattle roundup with guns and put their children in harm’s way,” Las Vegas’ reviewjournal.com reports. “’Those people who hold themselves out to be patriots are not. They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists,’ Reid said during an appearance at a Las Vegas Review-Journal ‘Hashtags & Headlines’ event at the Paris. ‘… I repeat: what went on up there was domestic terrorism.'” We called that one. When push comes to shove, the enemies of liberty . . .
label their enemies domestic terrorists.
Click over to the video. Senator Reid intimates that Bundy is what’s called a Sovereign Citizen: “[Bundy] says the United States is a foreign government. He doesn’t pay his taxes.” Wikipedia: “The United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) classifies some sovereign citizens (“sovereign citizen extremists”) among domestic terror threats.” See where this is going?
God I hope not. But Dirty Harry comes out and admits that he’s been lobbying Attorney General Eric Holder and the Director of the FBI to intervene in the Bundy stand-off. “They had sniper rifles on the freeway,” Reid says of Bundy supporters. “They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons.”
If you think that’s bad – and it is – Reid also calls Bundy supporters baby killers.
“And as one of the former sheriff’s [something] said, ‘and we had children and women lined up because if anyone got hurt we want to make sure they got hurt first, because we want the federal government to kill women and children.’ These people who hold themselves out to be patriots are not. They are domestic terrorists.”
If Reid’s minions go back in to take out Bundy, gun owners – NRA members especially – will get tarred with the same brush. All hell will break loose. As it almost did in Nevada. Click here to see just how close the confrontation came to becoming a shooting war/massacre.
All this so Harry Reid’s son can get paid millions to enable a Chinese solar farm in the desert? Stranger things have happened. Just not recently. Or yet. [h/t PH]
