    Reid calls Bundy supporters ‘domestic terrorists’[W:254:298:850,989]

    U.S. Sen. Harry Reid on Thursday called supporters of Bunkerville rancher Cliven Bundy “domestic terrorists” because they defended him against a Bureau of Land Management cattle roundup with guns and put their children in harm’s way.

    Really? Setting up sniper positions and saying that they will line up behind the women and shoot at the feds.

    That is beyond crap, that is cowards and fruitcakes wanting to start a war and kill innocent people.

    Bull****. The Feds are the ones who shoot (and burn) innocent women and children. See Ruby Ridge and Waco.

    The way the government has been labeling people and groups in the U.S. since 9/11 as terrorists will sooner than later ensnare everyone. Probably a reason why telecommunications are so heavily monitored and scrutinized - everyone is a potential terrorist in the eyes of the government.

    That's what those who think as you do would have been saying about American revolutionaries too. If it hadn't been for people who had the guts to say no to those in power, we'd still be paying the royals, rather than eating up the tabloid crap about them.

    Nobody WANTS to start a war, but if you aren't willing to fight when you believe your rights are being trampled on, then you are not only a coward, but you just keep giving up more until there's nothing left to fight for.

    Right on. I wonder what the reaction from the far right would be if hundreds of armed African americans went to stop some store from being evicted in a black neighborhood and took up sniper positions to prevent the eviction of the owner?

    Okay - I really do not wonder very long as its fairly obvious what posts we would read here condemning them for being "thugs" and "gang bangers" and all other manner of negative characterization.

    That rancher had a whole different set of circumstances than Waco or Ruby Ridge.

    For starters, WACO did not involve the following:

    -A guy who who chose to purchase something and then refused to pay for it - for years
    - A guy who claimed that he owned public land because of his "ancestory"
    -A guy who was violating the law on a large scale (Bundy did not have say, 20 subsistance cows. Instead he had a commercial business involving hundreds of cows)

    Or maybe leftist Occupiers refusing to pay their college loans?

    But wait, only right wing anarchists are cool. In addition, white* right wing anarchists are not only cool, but sexy. Those same right wingers would advocate drone strikes on blacks and the Occupiers attempting the same stunt.

    * And yes sadly, the guys race did matter. Many of the militiamen were very quick to point out that the govenment purportedly ignores illegal aliens, but then goes enforcement crazy on the rancher.
