Heller Calls Bundy Ranch Supporters ‘Patriots;’ Reid Sticks With ‘Domestic Terrorists’ (Video)

Nevada’s senators sparred Friday on live TV in Las Vegas over the standoff between the federal government and rancher Cliven Bundy.

“What Sen. Reid may call domestic terrorists, I call patriots,” GOP Sen. Dean Heller said during the rare joint appearance on KSNV-TV. “We have a very different view on this.”

Reid said Thursday that the people involved ”who hold themselves out to be patriots, are not. They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists.”

“It’s a pretty broad brush,” Heller said Reid is using in making the “domestic terrorist” charge. “When you have boy scouts there, you have veterans at the event, you have grandparents at the event.”

“That’s grandmothers? That’s boy scouts? I hope not,” Reid said, trading barbs with Heller.

“I take more issues with BLM coming in with a paramilitary army of people, individuals with snipers, and I’m talking to people and groups that were there at the event, and to have your own government with sniper lenses on you, it made a lot of people very uncomfortable,” Heller replied.

Heller later said that he would call for hearings in Washington, D.C., about the federal government actions, including the efforts by the BLM to round up the cattle. He also said he wanted to explore the ownership of rural land by the federal government.

This is just the old argument

of socialism vs capitalism all over again. Dirty Harry believes that people should not control the government, governments control the people. When you expend labor into something, the government owns the fruits of that labor, and if they so decide, they will allow you to keep some of it. He believes bureaucrats and government edicts ARE the voice of the people, not their actual voices. Nothing new here... socialism is ugly stuff, and needs to die.

No not really.

If you are a sponge for info and read a lot, you will find that Reid along with his family members have using Federal agencies such as the BLM to expand acreage of family holdings in some sort Clark County property scam. A DP'er posted an interview, and after further reading on the matter, it's amazing Reid has not been caught yet. I will find the DP post and post it here when I have time.

And that is exactly what socialism/corporatism is...

...and how it works.

Socialism, communism, etc., never applies to the tyrants and elitists who implement the control-system on the rest of the population.

Reid is the ultimate socialism implementing elitist.

Are you a POT or a PET - Person Embracing Tyranny?

Yes thanks

I am certainly not suggesting Harry Reid is not corrupt. I was just remarking on his arguments.

I agree completely...

...with your above comment.

That video made me livid

Harry fails to understand that the patriots who went in armed was a direct response to the BLM who had already had their own snipers and military weapons on station.
Harry is really stupid. This is going to blow up in his face and he will be removed from office before it is time for re election. Just the dumbest thing he has ever done.

What the state should do is hold Reid to this:

Title 18, US Code Sec.2381:[/B]
In the presents of two or more witnesses of the same overt act, or in a open court of law, if you fail to timely move to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States and honor your oath of office, you are subject to the charge of capital felony treason.

Just sue Reid for everything he has, and give everything back to the taxpayers he represents.

He's not stupid, Reid's got no other position he can take

The connections between Reid's contract with the Chinese for Bundy's Ranch, and his ties to the BLM head guy, leave Dirty Harry no where else to go!

He must accuse grandmothers and boy scouts of being domestic terrorists, because he can't justify his unrepentant actions any other way.

Heller is right, and everyone else knows it. Reid can't admit to the facts Heller raised, simply because it would underscore just how culpable we know he already is.
