Cliven Bundy was looting land he didn't own and when the government asked him to stop...

He and a few hundred heavily armed militia groups showed up, took positions on a crowded interstate, pointed guns at law enforcement and forced them to leave. Not only did they not arrest him or the militia members, they continue to let him loot the land.







So, who is the THUG again?



^ This guy according to the talking heads in the media and many posters on this very forum ^

3. They should have Waco'd the fuckers.

Next time they pull one of these stunts, they'll be bolder, and they'll probably be the ones to shoot first.

5. The Bundys had a "strategy" for that

 

We were actually strategizing to put all the women up at the front, If they are going to start shooting, its going to be women that are going to be televised all across the world getting shot by these rogue federal officers. -- Richard Mack (Supporter)




I forgot about this until now.

4. The hypocrisy is stunning.

I still fume when I think of how a group of right-wing gunnutz "took on" the feds and prevailed.

7. Well- you see - there's a world of difference

First the Bundy group were whites, second they had guns, third - they were "True Americans" as evidenced by their logos, decorations and signs, and finally the whole thing happened in Nevada (corrected from "Texas".

You gotta look at the whole thing through another set of rose-colored glasses - you know, the one's that blind you to the other side of a situation. Fox News sells them at their website.

8. A lot of people just watch too much television

It used to be that if one could warp his mind and get a completely distorted view of reality by watching violent detective dramas and not-very-funny situation comedies, to say nothing of soap operas.

Now, one can warp his mind and get a completely distorted view of reality by watching the national news on an MSM outlet, to say nothing of Fox.

11. If you an angry white conservative, the laws don't apply....

Ever notice that even acts of terrorism aren't labeled terrorism in the media if the the perpetrator is a RW conservative?

13. A little quibble

RW conservative is an oxymoron. Conservatives make poor terrorists. It wasn't a "conservative" who firebombed a Sunday school in Birmingham in 1963. The Ku Klux Klan is not a "conservative" organization.

Conservatives also make poor fascists. Barry Goldwater and William F. Buckley were conservatives. Jesse Helms, Ted Cruz and the Koch brothers are not.

17. semantics

Cruz and the Koch bros would identify themselves as conservatives.. As far as a good fascist, when it came to the arts and race The most famous fascist was conservative.

10. Cliven Bundy and his supporters, like other right wingers, are very aggressive and manipulative

They are aggressive and manipulative enough to scare off the bullies... They are also white so they don't ignite the "terror response" that white people seem to get when they see a black person falling out of line...

14. because there were no charges brought against the bundy-agitators you

assume they are not also considered thugs by the DUers you referenced?

I think a bit of logic is missing from your claim.
