    i just see it as a comparative stretch. I feel like Orwell if he were still alive would not see this as his distopian future coming to fruition. (Disclaimer: of course I can't definetly say what a dead man would think, IMHO I just don't think the author would agree)

    The only reason they brought "deadly force" was because of Bundy's previous comments regarding "doing whatever is necessary" to prevent seizure of his cattle and the accompanying not-so-subtle threat of violence.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    All law enforcement personnel have authority to use deadly force when their lives are in danger.

    Smart republicons know to distance themselves and their party from his racist claptrap. Republicons have enough trouble with a racist image without associating with, and supporting a man who is probably the most famous racist on the planet today.
    But yeah keep defending his racist rant trying to defuse and deny what everyone sane in your party knows.
    By defending racists who preach racism you are defining yourselves in no uncertain terms...
    We will all remember what you have said...
    Proceed...
