Cliven Bundy Laughably Trying to Get Criminal Charges Filed Against BLM

cliven-bundyLife in general is filled with a lot of irony – politics especially so.  It’s no secret that I believe conservatives are some of the biggest hypocrites in this country.  These are the “small government” people who love using the government to deny homosexuals their equal rights.  People who call themselves the party for “fiscal responsibility” when they haven’t had a president from their party balance the budget in over 50 years.  Those who talk about the love they have for our Constitution, while doing their best to violate the rights it gives to certain Americans who they don’t feel should have those rights.

That being said, it should surprise nobody that Cliven Bundy is an absolute hypocrite.

On their official Facebook page, the Bundy Ranch announced their intentions to file criminal charges against the Bureau of Land Management.

They posted:

If you witnessed or were subjected to any of the following crimes,
please come and file a report with us:
Men blocking access to public land
Men blocking public roads
Men harassing people for taking photos
Men impersonating Police officers
Men claiming to be a police officer and refusing to show valid identification
Men threatening to use Tasers
Men threatening to fire upon unarmed civilians
Men using attack dogs
Men pointing weapons
We believe that the BLM men who pointed guns at over 1,000 people
on April 12th near the I-15 freeway south of Mesquite committed a
criminal act and that the Clark County Sheriffs office should be required
to investigate.
The only way to get the Clark County Sheriffs office to investigate is to
file and personal, individual “Criminal Report” with the Sheriffs office.

So, let me get this straight.  The Bundy family was on record bragging about their guns and their willingness to “do what’s necessary” to fight the BLM.  Along with that were all these protestors calling themselves a “militia” proudly displaying their weapons.  And these people want to try to act like they were just innocent and non-threatening?

These people are completely nuts.

But the irony behind this is what makes me laugh.  Say they successfully file criminal charges against the BLM, leading to some kind of a trial in a court of law.  Explain to me how a man who has had four court orders telling him to pay the fees the BLM says he owes, would suddenly want the BLM to comply with a court order pertaining to whatever kind of ridiculous criminal charges these people think they should face.

He wants to take the BLM to court to face criminal charges, hoping the courts will side with him – yet he ignores the authority the courts have when they’ve found him guilty of breaking the law.

I don’t really like using the word “stupid,” but these people define stupidity.
