Things are heating up in the Nevada desert. As I watched video last night of the Feds pointing Tasers at unarmed citizens, and threatening them with dogs, I mused that the only thing missing was swastikas on their uniforms—this is how tyranny rises, and it simply grows more fangs as time passes.
(It was hilarious seeing the rancher who was Tazed just pulling out the barbs, and going right back to his verbal confrontation with the Fed aggressors. You can imagine the cowards thinking: Gee, that didn’t work too well, what do we do now? The answer not long after was: Get in those taxpayer-funded vehicles, and leave.)
From CBS Las Vegas: “‘Expect To See A Band Of Soldiers’: Militia Members Arrive At Nevada Ranch.”
Militia groups are rallying behind a rancher whose cattle are being seized by the federal government.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that two militia members from Montana and one from Utah have arrived at Cliven Bundy’s ranch.
“We need to be the barrier between the oppressed and the tyrants,” Ryan Payne of the West Mountain Rangers told the Review-Journal. “Expect to see a band of soldiers.”
Payne said that militias from New Hampshire, Texas and Florida are likely to join and stand with Bundy and stay at his ranch.
“They all tell me they are in the process of mobilizing as we speak,” Payne told the Review-Journal, adding that hundreds of militia members are expected.
The Review-Journal also reports that Bundy’s son, Ammon Bundy, was shot with a stun gun by law enforcement officers Wednesday and that the rancher’s sister, Margaret Houston, was pushed to the ground.
“I pulled the tasers out of him,” Cheryl Teerlink told the Review-Journal.
Lawmakers are adding their voices into the fray, criticizing the federal cattle roundup fought by Cliven Bundy who claims longstanding grazing rights on remote public rangeland about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas.
Sen. Dean Heller of Nevada said he told new U.S. Bureau of Land Management chief Neil Kornze in Washington, D.C., that law-abiding Nevadans shouldn’t be penalized by an “overreaching” agency.
As I watched the video, I also pondered the bluster of John Kerry in relation to Russia, saying they were using 19th and 20th Century ways of force and intimidation in the Crimean situation, rather than the supposedly more “enlightened” American desire for negotiation.
Well, the situation in Nevada is pure and simple force and intimidation–I guess the Feds don’t mind those “19th and 20th Century methods” when it’s them on the backside of the force.
