Skip to comments.“Domestic Terrorists” Threaten Real Estate Deal
Posted on 04/19/2014 12:13:30 AM PDT by John Semmens
This past week Bureau of Land Management Troops were called upon to seize cattle owned by Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy. The livestock confiscation was thwarted when hundreds of supporters rallied to Bundys side.
While it seems likely that the BLM had sufficient firepower to prevail, the confrontation dissipated when it was realized that there would be substantial casualties on both sides. That the BLM chose to stand down enraged Senator Harry Reid (D-Nev) who characterized it as an abject surrender to domestic terrorists.
The so-called cooler heads suggesting that there are more pacific ways of resolving the issues surrounding this dispute are overlooking the damage done to key investors from using a time-consuming court adjudication, Reid complained. My son has worked long and hard to broker a deal with a Chinese firm to use the land in question for a solar power harvesting operation. If the efforts of a Senators son can be swept aside by an ugly mob of cowboys it would completely cancel out the whole purpose of government as I see it.
Reid acknowledged some compassion for BLM troops not wanting to risk their lives and urged President Obama to deploy a drone strike against the ringleader. Bundy and his chief lieutenants could be surgically removed from a distance with no loss of life to government troops. He already has authority to excise terrorists on American soil. Its time that he used that authority to instill respect for the law among the disloyal riffraff.

I’m sure the Brits considered the Founding Fathers terrorists.
Reid is an idiot.
There is a video up on fb of the Bundy party last night and yesterday afternoon. A man went around interviewing people, from behind a camera, and most of those in attendance wore nametags that said “domestic terrorist”.
It was most amusing and enjoyable.
Sorry, John, you tried to go over the top to make this satire, but you are just too close to reporting the actual facts for it to rate as satire.
Good reporting, though...
Yes..an evil idiot
Really close to the unspoken truth.
Reid’s brown shirts!
Just right. Captures a lot with just the title.
I know it is satire, but there is the problem. dingy hairy thinks government is the answer to everything, as do most democraps. They know how to spend our money much better than we do and want to redistribute the wealth amongst their voting base.
He always does such a good job of “quoting” what the rats actually think that the honesty is the only giveaway.
“While it seems likely that the BLM had sufficient firepower to prevail.”
Incorrect, While casualties would have been sustained on both sides, the BLM would have been slaughtered. They were positioned in the bottom of a river bed salient. Many BLM rear guard positions were neutralized and replaced with friendlies.
They ran because they were out flanked and out gunned.
lol! Old Hairy Reid never fails to disappoint. :)
If this country manages to survive, Harry Reid will go down as one of America’s most corrupt politicians.
Thank you for the ping. :)
Problem is, this crosses the line. It isn’t satire.....it’s just good, clear accurate reporting of the situation.
Harry, This War is Lost!
Don’t think for a minute that Obutthole and minions were not using drones for surveillance and wishing for armed response.<>P
Hairy’s supposed thoughts on government may be imagined in this spoof, but are no doubt quite accurate.
Okay, I admit it. I had to go online to see whether this was true or Semmens was merely channeling Brandeis U. (Apparently domestic terrorist Ayers has spoken there in the past. )
Another fine column, John.
Nice one, John.
I can easily imagine Republican senators nodding in agreement with that. It must be satire because it's too bipartisan for Reid.
Another good one, John.
The Federal Leviathan has seen to it that the world is now split into “Them” vs “Us.” It’s about time we just go ahead and proudly declare ourselves the Domestic Terrorist Party.
Kinda like the guys running around in T-shirts and ball caps that say “Infidel.”
Or my favorite tee shirt: “This veteran has been medicated for your safety.”
so where’s the satire?
