Crazy Cliven Bundy Armed Supporters Supposedly Setting Up Checkpoints on Nevada Highways

bundy-supportersAnd many conservatives threw a fit because I called the tea party a terrorist group.  These people continue to get more and more ridiculous every single day.

The most recent story coming from Nevada involves armed Cliven Bundy supporters (I refuse to call these jackasses a “militia”) setting up checkpoints along Nevada highways near Bunkerville, requiring people passing to prove that they live in the area before being allowed through.

So the federal government is big bad and evil, always looking to infringe upon your rights, yet these idiots are supposedly stopping people (illegally by the way), forcing them to prove they live in the area before allowing them to pass?

And that’s not a massive infringement upon their Constitutional rights?  These people are unhinged.

Nevada lawmaker Steven Horsford (a Democrat) wrote:

“We must respect individual constitutional liberties, but residents of and visitors to Clark County should not be expected to live under the persistent watch of an armed militia.  Residents have expressed their desire to see these groups leave their community. I urge you to investigate these reports and to work with local leaders to ensure that their concerns are addressed in a manner that allows the community to move forward without incident.”

Cliven Bundy has broken the law – period!

Four different court orders have ruled against him.  The “debate” over this whole issue is over, he lost.  It’s as if these people are daring the federal government to use some kind of force against them.  As if they’re hoping that by doing so they can trigger some kind of “second revolution.”  They’re absolutely insane.

Besides the recent revelation that Bundy’s a racist, he’s broken the law.  The fact that these people continue to try to claim that he hasn’t simply because he “doesn’t recognize the federal government as even existing” doesn’t matter at all.

Bundy is a rancher that’s trying to subsidize his profits, and the feed of his cattle, on government land.  That’s the truth of this whole story.  He’s trying to argue that his cattle have the right to graze on land he doesn’t own. 

But the fact that these clowns are still hanging around the area, supposedly setting up checkpoints while trying to intimidate people along the highways, just adds to the mounting evidence that these people are completely insane.
