Nevada Congressman: Bundy Militia Needs to Leave Because They’re Making Residents Nervous
PJ Tattler ^ | 4/25/14 | Bridget Johnson

Posted on 04/27/2014 10:17:29 AM PDT by Nachum

A freshman Nevada congressman said the militiamen need to leave the area around Cliven Bundy’s cattle ranch because they’re scaring kids trying to walk to school.

Rep. Steve Horsford (D-Nev.), who represents the recently created 4th District of central Nevada, told MSNBC that he spent Thursday in Mesquite, “meeting with residents who actually live in Bunkerville, who are neighbors of Cliven Bundy, who live in the Moapa Valley community.”

“And they, like myself, are extremely frustrated by the fact that we have these armed militia in our community, the fact that children in Bunkerville, which is a community of only about 1,200, 1,300 people cannot walk around the corner to their school without armed militia on the hills of our community, that they can’t go to church on Sunday without armed militia being in or around the church because Cliven Bundy is there and the armed militia are there,” he said.

“And his comments today do not reflect our community. They don’t reflect the majority views of Nevadans or the Western way of life and the way that most of us feel. They are racist. His comments were racist. They are infused with bigotry and hatred. And they belong in the dustbin of history,” added the first person of color to represent Nevada in Congress.

“He profiled the African-American community, and it’s so ironic and hypocritical because he says that people don’t understand his way of life, but yet he would profile and make judgments about another community’s way of life. He’s wrong. He’s racist. And we need to have the armed militia leave our communities.”

I would think they would feel safer with the militias there. The real threat are the BLM goons. And this guy is a dem, so he is obviously lying.

Next phase of demonization. How long will it be before the facilitators of tyranny start accusing Bundy and his defenders of child abuse or operating meth labs?

Just more output from the propaganda machine.

Now back to the topic at hand. Should one agency control territory the size of western Europe?

Should that agency have its own armed force? Should it collect debts at the point of a gun?

Should its armed agents be gunning down drifters on the side of the road? (as recently occurred)

Should an agency whose job it is to lease land to ranchers be running those ranchers out of business? Should they be euthanizing tortoises and using those same tortoises as an excuse for putting ranchers out of business? Do you believe that cattle are a threat to turtles?

Should they be acting as agents for a corrupt senator and his corrupt sons who are handing ranch land over to the Chinese for their purposes?

Let’s not forget bestiality. That’s why they had to shoot the cattle to protect them after all.

Honest people going to church feel uncomfortable around Clive Bundy, who is a racist. The racist Clive Bundy’s militia should go home. History has passed by the racist views of the racist Clive Bundy.

Hmm. I think I’m beginning to detect a code.

Bunkerville is on the northern portion of Gold Butte.

Representative Horsford has introduced legislation to establish Gold Butte as a National Conservation Area.

Horsford’s bill mirrors Reid’s Gold Butte National Conservation Area Act.

Horford is full of it.

“He profiled the African-American community, and it’s so ironic and hypocritical because he says that people don’t understand his way of life, but yet he would profile and make judgments about another community’s way of life. Who is Clive Bundy to criticize our beautiful traditions of Purple Drank and gettin’ a lil’ sumpin-sumpin from Uncle Sam, Yo.”

Rep. Horsford then placed a mat on the ground and went into an impromptu break dance routine, showing unexpected balance and dexterity.

One of the uh, less desirable parts of Vegas. Maybe even where that racist Cliven Bundy saw welfare dwellers doing nothing and having nothing to do.

I support Bundy. the news media are the worst threat Americans and humans face. the news media are almost all democrats

The federal government owns 86% of the land in Nevada

the government this much land in Nevada and other states is socialism/communism. the land must be given to the states and individuals NOW

I agree with your points

Yep. A bunch of scary guys with military weapons and uniforms killed a bunch of a rancher's cows.

It would appear that we have become two nations attempting to occupy the same space. I fear this will not end well.

Gen 25.22-23 And the children struggled together inside her; and she said, If it be so, why am I thus? And she went to inquire of the Lord: 23. And the Lord said to her, Two nations are in your womb, and two peoples shall be separated from your bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger:

Gen 25.27. And the boys grew; and Esau was a skilful hunter, a man of the field; and Jacob was a quiet man, living in tents:

Oba 1.18. And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau stubble, and they shall burn them and consume them; and none shall remain of the house of Esau; for the Lord has spoken it:

Yup. America is polarized beyond compatibility. Reconciliation is now not possible.

As some pundit said recently, America is now a pressure cooker without a release valve.

God help us.

I played a little game with myself when I read the headline. Without reading the article I challenged myself to try to figure out if the mentioned Congressman was a D or an R.

Not much of a challenge, but this is a lazy Sunday after all.

Is it just me, or does anybody else find it disturbing that the Democrats supported thousands and thousands of Occupy protesters who destroyed public and private property and terrorized business owners and the general public but now consider a simple rancher in rural Nevada and 200 of his supporters to be domestic terrorists?

Simply a blatant attempt to remove the militia members from the area by using their favorite tactic, playing the race card. I’m thinking it won’t have the effect they were hoping for, but we’ll see.

“It would appear that we have become two nations attempting to occupy the same space.”

Excellent point and I firmly believe that most even on our side refuse to see this.

That “voting” or “educating” will somehow change things.

One side will win. So far, it has been a blowout and it’s early in the 4th quarter. Not much time left.

Tyrants and their lackeys are always nervous when armed and vigilant citizens are on watch. They have reason to be. As far as the neighbors are concerned, mind your own business unless you're willing to support Cliven Bundy against Sen. Harry Reed's BLM thugs and assassins.
