Former Clinton Labor secretary Robert Reich, now a prominent author and commentator, blasted Bundy on his Facebook page on Monday.
In what world is Cliven Bundy, the 68-year-old rancher who refuses to pay his tab for grazing cattle on federal lands, a patriot? Reich wrote. He drapes himself in the American flag but says I dont recognize the United States government as even existing, while attracting a collection of thugs with assault rifles in the Nevada desert to force the Bureau of Land Management to back down from a court-ordered confiscation of his cattle.
The comment from Reich, who now teaches at the University of California, Berkeley, comes after Nevada Democratic Sen. Harry Reid, the Senate majority leader, last week called Bundys supporters domestic terrorists.
Bundy had resisted efforts by Bureau of Land Management officials to seize his cattle, a move taken by federal officials as part of a long-running fight over unpaid grazing fees.
Hundreds of states rights protesters, some of them armed, showed up earlier this month to support Bundy. BLM officials ended up backing down, citing safety concerns....

Do they make horses that Reich can ride? Gunz he can shoot?
Reich’s analysis comes up a little short. Probably sounds better in the original German.
Reich...what’s that little bastige up to now? Answer: about 4’ 11”
The Turd Reich.
Bobby, after you’ve gotten a real job and worked for a coupla dozen years get back to us. Otherwise, STFU Munchin.
He said he does not recognize the US governments ownership of the land. Big difference, but all progressives miss represent the position of their opposition.
Reich’s brain is even smaller than his bod.
Shove it, Clinton simpleton.
Up your smelly Obamahole...er...Clintonhole.
Reich used Facebook to blast Bundy? That has to be a new low. How long before he’s driving a cab?
Well you little man, I dont recognize the United States government as even existing as it was at one time either. A good few of us want to fix that!
I don’t even listen to full-sized shitheads!
Robert Reich will never be "prominent".
Reminds me of that movie, “Honey, I Shrunk Clinton’s Former Labor Secretary”. LOL! Stand up Bobby!
Go away commie troll.
I met bobby once in San Francrisco..
hes a whiney ...sort of little man who may belong to one of those “affinity groups” we suspect suspect barry sotero of belonging to... WINK WINK
So if the federal government suddenly decides to fine us for frogs, lizard, turtles, we’re all supposed to just pay.
His family had been there for over 100 years before the feds just decided they were going to start fining him. Can the feds just decide on a whim that that can do this to any of us?
Bundy is just doing the work the turtles won’t do.
Be much better if he burned it, huh, shorty?
