Skip to comments.Harry Reid: Cliven Bundy and supporters are ‘domestic terrorists’
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

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.

I was wrong.
I failed to read the article till the end.
HE DID mention the Koch Brothers.
These men live in his head rent free.
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.
Harry is a domestic mafioso.
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.
I’m NOT surprised he didn’t mention Bill Ayres. An ACTUAL domestic terrorist.
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 do not come close to you Harry. You are one of the top ten terrorists in America, maybe in the world.
TDC is a little late to this story. Drudge and Top Right News had it around 4pm yesterday, followed by Jim Rob and Breitbart.
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.
That is how he [Reid] feels. Laws are for him to beat the little people down with. He, he is a law unto himself.
Cowboys and Domestic Terrorists
Evidently, they have had dealings with him that he doesn’t want made public.
I think you should let it go DUMB NUT..The majority of the people in this country support MR Bundy where as most of us hate your criminal rear..
