SPLC: "Nevada rancher appears to have backed down after threatening to open up a “range war” with the federal government "

Antigovernment ‘Patriots’ Gather Near Scene of Nevada Rancher’s Dispute Over Cattle Grazing Rights
By David Neiwert on April 10, 2014 - 9:36 am, Posted in Antigovernment, Patriot
A Nevada rancher appears to have backed down after threatening to open up a “range war” with the federal government if they rounded up the cattle he had illegally grazing on public lands. Authorities responded to the rancher’s threat with a show of force – an estimated 200 federal agents who descended on the scene – and rounded up the cattle. However, a large contingent of about a hundred antigovernment “Patriots” is now gathering near the site of the roundup as a form of protest and making their presence known.

On Wednesday, the confrontation escalated into a brief dustup between federal law enforcement officers and the protesters, including the son of the rancher at the center of dispute, Cliven Bundy. During the ruckus, caught on video, Bundy’s adult son, Ammon Bundy, was shot with a stun gun that bloodied his shoulder. Eventually the officers retreated, amid much celebration by the protesters.

Communist front organization for decades! Bigger gov't better!

This deceitful, Orwellian, communist front org created several decades ago, has been undermining the idea of the free Republic, free markets, liberty and the bill of right,s since their inception!

They get under the table funding from the big heavies in the Neocon world, do the bidding of the CFR as their agent provocateurs, and foam at the mouth on a regular basis with anti-Ron Paul, anti local law enforcement in favor of Fed Cops, pro bigger banks and big government handouts.

They can be seen no working in concert with FEMA and other Neocon creatures, generally doing their puppet part on behalf of their masters, like all the past Neocon supported communist dictators!

Their middle name is liar... tell it often, make it big, the majority will believe you!

Like the Devil, and both parties, they are also masters of deception!

If Wars Can Be Started by Lies, They Can Be Stopped By Truth.

Whats up with this source?

Whats up with this source? The article lost me after the first couple of "antigovernment" characterizations. I havn't been watching this story unfold via a microscope, but I never took it as that type of issue.
Ill add that site to my list of sources to ignore.

It's the SPLC

well known for it's evil Anti-Liberty propaganda.

If Wars Can Be Started by Lies, They Can Be Stopped By Truth.

So he backed down by letting

So he backed down by letting them take his cattle and giving them his land?...wait a moment...

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

You have to get it from THEIR perspective

See to us, the BLM backed down, left and peace was restored. All that was required was the CESSATION OF FEDERAL VIOLENCE.

The SPLC wants people to believe Mr. Bundy WANTED WAR. That's the "backing down" they refer to. So I guess he told his semi-automatic military assult cows to stand down.

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.
