Wow. Glenn Beck, CNN and Harry Reid Agree
Here you go, the lion sleeps with the lamb. They all want you to NOT support Cliven Bundy because they say he’s a racist.
I listened to the long version of the remarks instead of the one edited to exacerbate the situtation. Though clumsily stated, his point was one that’s been voiced by many… the black population has been disproportionately enslaved to government handouts by a “war on poverty” that has increased reliance on federal assistance in low income communities, not decreased poverty.
Hey Beck… does that point sound “racist”, or just very familiar?
My support wasn’t predicated on Cliven Bundy personally being a saint
The bill of rights is NOT limited to perfect people, it is applicable to ALL citizens. If we limit support to those without faults we are roughly 2000 yrs too late for our only shot.
Heck, Al Sharpton has a glaring record of being a confirmed racist. He also owes the govt at least as much as Bundy does. But he has a primetime slot on a national news station.
- Have you seen footage of MSNBC surrounded by armed troops?
- Has a single member of Sharpton’s family been tased?
- Any family members thrown to the ground?
- Surely some of them have had an attack dog sent at ’em? Right?
They very clearly violated the spirit of that law. The general idea of posse comitatus is that we don’t use the 101st Airborne in collection of library fines. Supporting a government that uses a pile driver to swat flies is a bad idea.
The seige in Nevada was not about rule of law…
The BLM is required by law to use local authorities in collection issues. Nowhere are they allowed to field private armies of their own making.
Combating government tyranny is a helluvalot more important than a debt that is roughly 10% of the cost of 1 vacation the first lady has taken. The federal reaction was not proportionate to the cause. This was the federal equivalent of having a citizen wake up with a horse head in their bed for daring to challenge the powers that be. There is no defense for the government’s action.
Sorry Beck, you are just wrong.
You missed the whole darned point. This is NOT about Bundy. This is about federal over-reach.
As for Harry Reid and CNN, heck, how often are they right? Reid is so crooked that when he finally dies they won’t bury him, they’ll screw him into the ground. He’s a sad, vicious little man, and the citizens on Nevada need to recall him before he gets somebody hurt.
The left has launched their best HEY LOOK SQUIRREL technique to divert attention from government over-reach to Bundy’s personality. How predictable. Sadly, many of the right have fallen for it. C’mon fellas, try to focus please. The issue is not whether Bundy is a saint, it’s about whether the government is allowed to use military might to settle relatively minor civil issues.
HINT: The answer is a resounding NO.
