Reid Calls For Leaders To Unite In Condemnation Of Cliven Bundy’s Dangerous Extremism
U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid ^ | April 24, 2014 | U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid

Posted on 04/24/2014 5:52:46 PM PDT by mdittmar

"This is not a game.”

Las Vegas, NV  – Nevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement today on racist comments by Cliven Bundy reported by the New York Times.

“I used to live in North Las Vegas and it is home to some of the hardest-working people I have ever met – men and women who embody the American dream by working hard every day to build a better life for themselves and their families. By contrast, Cliven Bundy has spent decades profiting off government land while refusing to pay the same fair use fees as his fellow ranchers. Today, Bundy revealed himself to be a hateful racist. But by denigrating people who work hard and play by the rules while he mooches off public land he also revealed himself to be a hypocrite.

“To advance his extreme, hateful views, Bundy has endangered the lives of innocent women and children. This is not a game. It is the height of irresponsibility for any individual or entity in a position of power or influence to glorify or romanticize such a dangerous individual, and anyone who has done so should come to their senses and immediately condemn Bundy. For their part, national Republican leaders could help show a united front against this kind of hateful, dangerous extremism by publicly condemning Bundy.

“The bottom line is that elected officials and those in positions of power or influence have a responsibility to unite behind the basic principle that we are a country of laws, and that whatever our differences, it is unacceptable for individuals to use violence or the threat of violence to advance their radical views.”

I like the last line, particularly because the decent half of all Americans have wanted to say the same thing to Obama repeatedly:

“The bottom line is that elected officials and those in positions of power or influence have a responsibility to unite behind the basic principle that we are a country of laws, and that whatever our differences, it is unacceptable for individuals to use violence or the threat of violence to advance their radical views.”

I wish Obama would listen to Reid this one time in his career that the corrupt liar from Nevada gets something right.

“Dangerous” extremism?!? So now having an opinion that is not politically correct or out of the mainstream is “dangerous” extremism. So how many black families are “endangered” by Clive Bundy’s comments? Is he marching around rounding up black folk and forcing them into slavery on his ranch? Or is he a governor? A judge? Somebody with any power to implement his view, even if he wanted to?

The best thing Reid can do ‘shut the damn f...up’. Of course Clive Bundy didn’t help himself either by expressing his feelings on a very sensitive social/political issue when is expertise is cattle.

No surprise here, what did people expect? You give the enemy ammunition, don’t be shocked when they fire it at you. Once again, any statement that begins with “I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro” is not going to make your life any easier.

I feel bad for Bundy, I understand he is just a simple working man without spin doctors and handlers, still he should have know better. Just not doing himself any favors there.

Oh? No personal opinions on certain topics allowed?

Mr. Bundy may not have been articulate, but he spoke the truth and many here are clutching their pearls and hiding under skirts about it.

Reid is dumber than Bundy, and that's hard to pull off.

Senile degenerate crook Reid obviously has forgotten that one should "Never Interfere With an Enemy While He’s in the Process of Destroying Himself".

By the way, Hannity is a spineless douchebag who exploited the Bundy's and then ran for the tall grass when somebody said Negro.

Bread and Circuses, but the Game is on.

Harry said that Obama did not have negro dialect. He was immediately given the free pass ... his heart was in the ‘right’ place. Can you say double standard?

Game Change... The authors quote Reid as saying privately that Obama, as a black candidate, could be successful thanks, in part, to his "light-skinned" appearance and speaking patterns "with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one."

That’s funny coming from Reid when he has said for weeks now that any supporters of Bundy are “Domestic Terrorists” and Donna Brazile compared Bundy to Timothy McVeigh

"My staff tells me not to say this, but I'm going to say it anyway," said Reid in his remarks. In the summer because of the heat and high humidity, you could literally smell the tourists coming into the Capitol. It may be descriptive but it's true."

harry hates the hardest-working people I have ever met – men and women who embody the American dream by working hard every day to build a better life for themselves and their families,and just want to visit the sites in Washington D.C.

Actually he did speak the truth but the far left have screwed his words up in such a way that he’s despised. Best for him is to be quiet in this very tense situation. He’s just playing into Reid’s hands.

I cannot explain why Reid gets re elected in Nevada. I spend a reasonable amount of time there (in the small towns and rural areas) and the people are down to earth Americans, and don't particularly like Reid.

It must be the cities.

You may be offended, you may not like it, but he’z got a damn right to speak freely. If not, this American experiment is dead.

That is right harry.

It includes corrupt Nevada politicians and their aspiring offspring, Chinese solar companies, suspect Sheriffs, BLM / LEO thugs and communist agenda "progressive and liberal" party members.

Oh, you were referring to Mr. Bundy?

Cattle rancher isn't in the above list.

But you are...

Got no problem with what he may or may not have said.

Reid in going after a citizen by name has gone off the reservation.

Also don't appreciate phoney baloney's like Hannity putting Bundy and his family in the spotlight sans lawyers or advisers and then bailing on them the minute some communist puts out a hit piece.

Time to Alinksy Reid back

The GOP and Fox News have started doing this, based on what I've seen today. The GOP is airing political ads that feauture Reid negatively. And Megyn Kelly is questioning why Reid is speaking out against Bundy.

Unfortunately, Bundy lacks the tact and artfulness to make his point about black dependency on government.

Bundy accidentally threw reid a bone.

If there was any justice, I would send in my flunkies to shoot them all and dump them in a pit with their damned cows! AAAAARRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHH!!!”
