Harry Reid was brought into the midst of the Cliven Bundy standoff, following reports of his and his son’s work with a Chinese solar company to bring Nevada a multi-billion dollar solar farm to Nevada.
In response to the stand down on Saturday by the Bureau of Land Management, Reid hypocritically responded, “We can’t have an American people that violate the law and then just walk away from it. So, it’s not over.” On Thursday, during a ‘Hashtags & Headlines’ event at the Paris Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Reid referred to Bundy supporters as “Nothing more than domestic terrorists,” adding, “I repeat: what happened there was domestic terrorism.”
Reid was not only referring to Bundy and his family, but the protesters and militia that also showed up in Bunkerville to support the Bundys.
Ben Swann reported that there were talks of putting women and children at the front of the protest, but that didn’t happen. However, many women who were there responded that they wouldn’t have to be asked, but would be willing to move to the front on their own.
However, notice what Reid said about the militia there. They had automatic weapons. Maybe they did or maybe they didn’t. However, what kind of weapons were the BLM using? That’s right, fully automatic weapons. Several of my own sources have confirmed that there were even .50 BMGs ready for use with more ammunition than eyewitnesses could count. I don’t see Reid pointing out that, do you?
The numbers of armed feds against the protesters and militia was very large. Sources have confirmed there were well over 250 armed federal agents, and some have estimated upwards of 1,000, though that cannot be confirmed.
Reid also made it sound as if he expected these armed federal agents to actually fire on unarmed women and children.
Let’s be clear: There was domestic terrorism going on, but it wasn’t from supporters, militia or the member of the Cliven Bundy family. It was from our own government…
