‘Patriot Party’ gathers at Bundy’s Nevada ranch, Reid deems them ‘domestic terrorists’
The Washington Times ^ | April 18, 2014 | Valerie Richardson

(VIDEO-AT-LINK)

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid called supporters of rancher Cliven Bundy “domestic terrorists” Thursday, turning up the rhetorical heat on the already tense situation at the Nevada cattle operation.

“Those people who hold themselves out to be patriots are not. They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists,” Mr. Reid in remarks at a luncheon, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, which sponsored the event. “… I repeat: What went on up there was domestic terrorism.”

The Nevada Democrat was referring to the hundreds of Bundy backers — some armed, some from out of state — who congregated at the ranch last week in a show of support as the Bureau of Land Management began seizing the family’s cattle in a dispute over grazing fees.

No shots were fired, although Ammon Bundy, Cliven Bundy’s adult son, was stung by a Taser last week during an argument with federal agents.

BLM officials abandoned the cattle-gather Saturday, citing concerns about public safety at the Bunkerville, Nev., ranch as the number of demonstrators grew....

So swear out warrants for the arrest of each one of them on terrorism charges, Harry.

Put them in Guantanamo next to the foreign terrorists.

Have the courage of your convictions, you candyass.

Who called off the "action" by the BLM?

Why did Clark County Sheriff Gillespie only show up at the end of the week? Where were his deputies all week?

When Leftists gather to protest, express “concern”, or show solidarity in order to keep police and court processes honest and corruption free, it’s called participation and free speech.

Such as the Trayvon Martin trial, various immigrant protest marches that shut down LA highways, sit ins on campuses, union protests, etc.

When constitutionalists do it, it’s a threat, terrorism, or hate speech.

They should call Harry a “socialist terrorist”, for making “terroristic threats” to them.

If you have a problem with a vision of the future as “a boot stamping on a human face forever.” then you are a “domestic terrorist”?

Is it a coincidence or by design that the cable channel, History International, is doing an hour long documentary on the threat of domestic terrorists (Timothy McVeigh is mentioned) and the American Nazi infiltration in our military? The documentary seems to say that the military is a breeding ground for white supremacists.

“I hope that’s not the case,” Mr. Reid said in the Review-Journal. “I repeat, we are a country of laws. … We can’t let this happen.”

Is this the same Harry Reid who is pushing amnesty for lawbreakers who crossed our borders? I thought laws didn't matter Mr. Reid. Make up your mind.

I may not agree with what Bundy is doing, but calling supporters domestic terrorists is akin to the Nazis blaming the Jews for the Depression. Reid would make Goebbels so happy

The patriot Party—I knda Like the sound of that. Liberty Party sounds good as does Son of Liberty. Time to ORGANIZE. Cowboys for Freedom. Time to form a new party or take over an existing party—American Independent-Constutional Party in Nevada is the 3rd Largest Party in the state—passing the weak willed Libertarians. AI is on the ballot NOW! They agree with the goals of the Tea Party. VOTE AI in November! Time to picket Harry Reads House in Searchlight! Time to remember the words of Ronald Reagan! “Big Government IS the Problem!”. We have been given a sign—let us act upon it! “Ride to the sound of the guns!”

Because he’s Harry’s “Step N’ Fetch It!”
The other question that needs to be asked is just where was Governor Sandoval?

“They should call Harry a “socialist terrorist”, for making “terroristic threats” to them.”

They can call him anything they want, and it doesn’t matter one damn bit, if the Mainstream Media decides not to cover it, and Harry Reid knows this.

No one in the Mainstream Media will DARE to call Harry out on it, either. They know that doing so would mean the end of their career, threats to their families, and blacklisting by the Hollywood Socialists.

I guess it would be useless to point out the parallels between this, and media in 1930’s Germany, wouldn’t it.

Please contact members of the senate ethis committee, your congress people and any others you can think of Rand Paul etc and ask that investigations begin. It is precedent that people step down while being investigated. There are plenty of areas: bribery - land acquisition that they can look into

Not a coincidence.

That said there were a lot of people walking around the Bundy ranch with nametags that said "domestic terrorist".

I wanted to get a sign for my car or something.

Meanwhile, over on KOS, the Mainstream Media meme is being generated:

“Sen. Harry Reid Calls Bundy Supporters “Domestic Terrorists”, FOX Freaks Out, Reid Stands by Words

This was The top story on The Ed Show on MSNBC earlier this evening. Harry Reid BUH-ROUGHT it hard it to the vile gun lovers supporting Cliven Bundy in Nevada.”

Of course, any major media media person that doesn’t follow this approved memeage, is an Enemy Of The Gay Obamunist State

Suck it, Harry.

We've heard that before, right about the same time we threw off the yoke of oppression.

And it wasn't just "unfriending" y'all on Facebook.

Bundy (family)has grazed cattle on this land with the blessing of the state and federal govt for 150 years. Reid his son and the Chinese are using a section of nearby land to make billions and he needed to take the rights of Bundys grazing area to compensate for the acres of federal land they stole

What don’t You like about Bundy?

If you live in “the other America”, which is apparently the successor state to that nation once known as “the United States of America”, where the Current Regime has seized the territory of that nation now fast fading into history, then perhaps the behavior of these person who insisting on reinstating the principles, including the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States of America, and the rule of law that defined that nation, then just maybe, the gathering in Nevada is really what could be called “terrorists”, in that they strike terror into the hearts of that oligarchy that hijacked the old United States.

But the “new oligarchy” does not represent the people who are residing in the territory of the formerly great nation known as “the United States of America”.

I want my country back.

“Domestic” terrorists? More like feral terrorists, I would say. Used to be domesticated, but they were turned out into the streets and denied the attributes of the comfortable homes they once knew.

My response to Harry Reid: You are nothing more than a despicable two-bit lying thief and a traitor to Americans all over. You should be tried and convicted and sentenced to 25 years to life in federal prison for your thieving ways.

Look into who is counting the votes.
( also his connection to mob — search for freeper Daxton Brown and read his posts /blogs/book. He’s the only one who has written a biography on Reid 2010

Actually, parts of Germany’s media in the 1930s were strident in their opposition to both communism and fascism. For example the magazine Simplicissimus. They had guts.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simplicissimus

Eventually, of course, the Nazis neutered them, even though they allowed them to publish until 1944.

Who is agitating to get Americans foaming at the mouth about Putin?

Answer:

0bastard/his handlers/the wholely owned and controlled MSM.

Why?

“We have always been at war with Eastasia”.

All tyrants eventually need an external enemy so the repressed peoples’ ire and hatred and fear will be turned from their own tyrant to a foreign enemy.
