Harry Reid: Cliven Bundy and supporters are ‘domestic terrorists’
Daily Caller ^ | 04/18/2014 | Robby Soave

Posted on 04/18/2014 6:53:51 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

While many have condemned the strong-arming and pseudo-military tactics of the Bureau of Labor Management in its standoff with Cliven Bundy, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Nevada Democrat, reserved his criticism for the Bundy family and their many supporters — which he labelled domestic terrorists.

Reid’s comments came during a live interview with Steve Sebelius, a columnist for the Las Vegas Review Journal. Reporter Jon Ralston, who attended the event, tweeted Reid’s statements regarding the dispute between Bundy and the BLM:

“What happened in Mesquite was domestic terrorism.” @SenatorReid

— Jon Ralston (@RalstonReports) April 17, 2014

Reid was referring to the hundreds of supporters of Bundy, who came to his Nevada cattle ranch to protest his treatment at the hands of the federal government, which was intent on regulating and taxing the ranch out of existence. BLM agents descended upon the ranch to remove hundreds of cattle that they claimed were endangering a tortoise habitat.

Agents came with military style equipment, according to the Bundy family, and tasered several protesters on a road leading to the ranch after the stepped out side the designated “free speech zone.” (RELATED: Victory for Cliven Bundy, Nevada rancher who challenged feds)

Reid called those who would stand against these tactics “domestic terrorists.”

“These people who hold themselves out to be patriots are not. They are domestic terrorists.” @SenatorReid clearly prepared that line.

Who pointed automatic weapons at peaceful protesters and had orders to shoot to kill anyone who approached?

Who massacred cattle just for the fun of it?

Who destroyed water towers and other property just to send a message?

Those are the domestic terrorists.

Terrorists work to strike fear into the general population.

To me that would clearly implicate Harry Reid and his band of environmental jihadists as the domestic terrorists in this battle.

remember Elian gonzalez.

The leftists raided the house and put the child back into slavery. The government lied and pretended to be doing “court process” (lying during negotiations to gain tactical advantage which religion does that?).

I would fully expect Reid and Obama to go in artillery blazing. The msm (what else does that stand for?) is pushing the meme of “did not pay his rent”.

This is not surprising given that (then) speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and (then) head of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano called tea party protestors potential terrorists.

Let’s be clear ... these people will brook no dissent, no disagreement. Period.

A few minutes ago on Fox News this same report about Reid calling Bundy and supporters domestic terrorists, but it was so funny to see Reid on left and Bundy on Right, and in the middle background was a sign ‘stand with Bundi’ which had been hand painted, so unsure if it was part of Bundy picture..... but it was definitely a sign promoting their position on this chaos from Fox News... in the way it was displayed on the screen as part of the news cast.

They think it is ten years ago when the biggest thing people had to worry about was Halliburton.

He does not realize people now live in abject fear of their weekly trip to the grocery store. Anyone still paying for their food knows who owns that mess and it aint the Koch Bothers.

Hey people, Harry’s cronies have got land to steal and deals to be made! You think Harry’s expected lifestyle in retirement can be met on a congressional pension? If Harry has to make his fortune with American blood money, so be it! He’s the Senate Majority leader, feel fortunate that you don’t have to bow before him! He is not your servant, you are his!

Is it me, or is Obama (and his crew) oddly silent on this? There hasn’t been peep from the White House on this. On the other hand, Reid, his son, and others connected to him have been commenting all along.

to me, this means this a Nevada issue, particular to Reid-BLM-Nevada crony politics and corruption. I’m assuming Obama doesn’t want to touch it with a 10-foot pole and above all, doesn’t want Reid to drag him into an unknown controversy

The scum of a man Reid is a typical ignorant, thieving, lying, self rightious America hater and a pawn of Satan himself, even as all leftists are. The whole history of leftist marxism is a bloody and violent history as the whole basis of their lie is self worship.
They are vanity and will kneel at the feet of the Lord Jesus at their death and will be judged for the evil they did to their fellow man everywhere in this world.

Exactly who are the 'terrorists', Harry?

From Fox News:

Fox News toured the damage -- allegedly caused by the Bureau of Land Management -- which included holes in water tanks and destroyed water lines and fences. According to family friends, the bureau's hired "cowboys" also killed two prize bulls. "They had total control of this land for one week, and look at the destruction they did in one week," said Corey Houston, friend of rancher Cliven Bundy and his family. "So why would you trust somebody like that? And how does that show that they're a better steward?"

I remember it well. That is why I continue to harp on “Watch out for Government treachery”. One is not dealing with normal human beings. one is dealing with individuals who have no principles, bad morals and character, no conscience. They only have an insatiable lust for power. An insatiable lust to shed other people’s blood. The only lives they hold precious are theirs. The only bloodshed they wish to avoid is theirs. Everyone else is only a means to their end[s]

By Harry’s leftist assumptive worldview,
there is no way that gov’t can be in the wrong,
so all those actions are justified.

http://www.prnewschannel.com/pdf/Williams_Polygraph.pdf

Above is the link to the polygraph in which Donald Williams, former campaign manager of Harry Reid, claims that he personally delivered over $10,000 on 2 occasions to Harry Reid from brothel owner, Joe Conforte. The polygraph found: “no deception indicated”.

From Josephconforte.com about mafia boss, Joseph Conforte: “It was November 6, 1974 and Joe felt like he could sit on top of any mountain in the Sierras and shout “I’m the Don of Nevada. I own this state! Me! The one the cops and DAs and pencil-pushin’ government prosecutors thought they could bring down.””

(from Wiki) ***Conforte fled to Brazil in 1991, ahead of a federal grand jury handing up numerous indictments in 1995 and 1998. The Brazilian Supreme Court ruled in 1999 that the extradition treaty between Brazil and the United States did not cover bankruptcy fraud.[4] As of 2011, he continues to live in Brazil.[citation needed]***

Standard operating procedure for Alinsly...

RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)
Of course, the Left overlooks the fact that the nation knows full well war has been declared by the Left on the rest of us. So while Reid may besmirch Bundy in the minds of the Left, he builds sympathy for Bundy from the rest of us and shines a light on the great divide that has been created and festered by Obama, Reid, Pelosi, et al.

You assume correctly. Clearly the optics of this thing would have killed them in November. I'm guessing olde Harry is ignoring orders to button his lip.

The purpose of Reid’s statement is not only to demonize his opposition, but to prepare the groundwork for executive orders and the internment of dissidents, perhaps at Gitmo.

It’s interesting that you mention Bill Ayres. In his Weather Underground manifesto one of the planks of his platform is to liquidate 25 - 30 million American People who can’t be re-educated.

I think backhoes, dump trucks and mass graves for cows is the start of a progression, humans will be next. If good people everywhere do not stand up and oppose tyranny this is what history tells us.

Calling on good men everywhere to abandon evil, you will be welcome heros to the American People!

Oh I know. Agenda 21 calls for a couple hundred thousand people total as max capacity for the USA in the next 60ish years via the UN approved “Turtle island project.’

We are rapidly getting to population reduction when the libs are now openly advocating prison for disagreement. Soon they will ‘progress’ to open calls for death. History shows it will happen. It has happened before and will gain. HERE. Whether or not people wish to believe it.
