    Again comparing the civil rights movement to some guy who won't pay his fees is idiotic at best and completely disgracing the civil rights movement at worse. The guy didn't pay his fees it has NOTHING to do with his freedom. The guy was an asshole and the government used excessive force on it. Just because the government was wrong in using excessive force, doesn't mean Bundy is some patriot because he didn't pay his fees. This has NOTHING to do with civil disobedience and more with some loser who doesn't want to pay fees every other rancher pays for.

    NICE! Were the civil rights marchers armed and threatening the police with retribution?

    and how did civil rights proponents "wrongfully" interfere with the various governments upholding oppressive segregation laws?

    Trying to conflate those who suffered during the days of Jim Crow laws with an arrogant, ignorant government-denying moocher with armed friends, who are even more ignorant, is stretching so far in an attempt to justify criminal behaviour that one must wonder (self censored opinion did go here)

    lol, even Glen Beck calls Bundy what he really is, a "Welfare Rancher."
    Great! And Bundy on tape saying he doesn't believe government exists, Mack saying they will line up behind the women.

    These guys are McVeigh wannabee's, and they wonder why the normal people are concerned?

    Oh yeah, those jerks who dared to insist that the government recognize them as people instead of subhuman chattle.... That's exactly the same as a freeloading welfare king rancher demanding that the us government provide a million dollars worth of subsidized feed for his cattle. Does he own the land? NO. Does he have permission to graze his cattle there? NO. Is anyone else doing it? NO. Then he should get the hell off. The right wing blather on this is staggeringly unamerican. Threatening violence against the people of the United States unless you get what you want is terrorism. TERRORISM. We put people into Gitmo for far less than this jerk and his rabid supporters.

    What came first the SWAT team or the 500 rednecks out of the woodwork?

    The Black Panthers and The Weather Underground actually launched attacks on policemen. So, yes.

    What came first is the guy breaking the law by not paying his fees. Then the government's excessive force. Then the rednecks.

    Again, the government's use of excessive force doesn't excuse Bundy's actions of not paying his fees. BOTH sides though are ultimately in the wrong.
