    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said he believes the supporters who rallied around Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy in his fight against the federal government are “domestic terrorists” and Bundy does not respect his country.

    The Las Vegas Journal-Review reported that Reid, D-Nev., made the comments at an event Thursday hosted by the paper called “Hashtags & Headlines.”

    Federal land managers backed down in a weekend standoff with Bundy after hundreds of states' rights protesters, including armed militia members, showed up to protest federal officials seizing his cattle. Some protesters had their guns drawn and pointed toward law enforcement, some of whom were also armed. But ultimately, no shots were fired and the Bureau of Land Management reported that officials left over safety concerns.

    Reid had harsh words for these supporters, saying the government cannot stop pursuing the issue.

    “They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists,” Reid said, according to the paper. “I repeat: what happened there was domestic terrorism.”

    Apparently he has no idea of the definition of terrorism. Not surprising.

    Oh, he's not that stupid. By planting the seed (idea), he's opening the door to use Homeland Security and/or the military.

    Dingy Harry Reid, the epitome of the worst of Mormonism, was after the land for a deal with the Chinese for a solar panel farm in which Reid and his son would profit handsomely.

    Actually, I thought that Reid was getting ready to perpetrate another Ruby Ridge and use federal agents to execute Bundy. I thought that Reid was going to order the slaughter of Bundy's cattle. Reid seems to be threatening to strike again by saying that it is not over yet.

    It made national news. oops! That wasn't supposed to happen.

    Strange how we can send troops, guns, tazers and snipers to Nevada but not 1 BB gun to Benghazi.

    It is also strange how our President and Senators will not call what happened at Ft. Hood the first time terrorism but is willing to call protesting Americans terrorists.

    As the world watched federal officers in Nevada assault a pregnant woman and a cancer victim.

    This was not allowed to escalate to a Ruby Ridge incident because this is an election year with the senate up for grabs.

    My opinion of course.

    It was not allowed to escalate because there were actual citizens there who were just as well armed. There should not have been any government agents there armed. If the BLM continues ts activities then there will be a civil war.
