Harry Reid: Nevada supporters of Cliven Bundy are ‘domestic terrorists’

Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) claimed on Thursday that armed supporters of rancher Cliven Bundy are “domestic terrorists” and reckless individuals who put their families in danger.

Harry Reid says the Senate should discuss gun laws following the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut.

Harry Reid says the Senate should discuss gun laws following the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut.

Speaking at a Las Vegas Review-Journal event, Reid was clear: “They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists. I repeat: what happened there was domestic terrorism.”

Bundy reportedly owes the federal government roughly $1 million in grazing fees, an amount he accumulated after he “fired” the Bureau of Land Management in 1993 over its decision to turn public land into a protective habitat for the state’s desert tortoise.

There are two court orders that permit BLM to execute a roundup of 500 to 900 of Bundy’s “trespass cattle,” Reid reportedly said.

“Clive Bundy does not recognize the United States,” Reid said. “The United States, he says, is a foreign government. He doesn’t pay his taxes. He doesn’t pay his fees. And he doesn’t follow the law. He continues to thumb his nose at authority.”

“It is an issue we cannot let go, just walk away from,” he added.

Reid, who recently said the situation is “not over,” revealed on Thursday there is a federal task force being assembled to handle to the tense situation.

Bundy says he doesn’t recognize federal authority on the land his family has used since the 1870s.

    I think Harry Reid is terrorizing the nation by supporting Obamacare…Obama doesn’t care if I have no privacy and every doctor in the county ethical or not has access to my medical records.

    ““These people, who hold themselves out to be patriots are not. They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists,” Reid said”

    Well then…whats next? Drone assassinations of US citizens on US soil for holding the “wrong” political beliefs?

    “ACLU Argues President Does Not Have Unchecked Authority to Kill You

    “A few weeks ago, the Obama administration filed a brief in response to our lawsuit challenging the president’s targeted killing program.

    In that brief, the Justice Department asserted, among other things, that the president’s targeted killing authority is a “political question” that should not be subject to judicial review.

    It also invoked the state secrets privilege, arguing that litigating the case would threaten national security.

    Essentially, the Obama administration asserts the courts should play no role in establishing and enforcing the rules under which the president can kill American citizens whom it unilaterally determines to pose a threat.”
