There’s some bullshit brewing down in the Nevada desert. It almost came to a head last weekend but the BLM was wise enough to pull back before it blew up. All kinds of armed nutjobs from Idaho (the next frontier of gun toting wingnuts) brought their guns and set up positions. I say send these asshats to Afghanistan. I doubt a single one of them has actually served our country and right now their behavior is treasonous. Yet the Right Wing clings to them as if they were “patriots”. They aren’t. They are criminals. And Cliven Bundy is a criminal too, and a liar. And this one is for Auntie, yes, he’s a Mormon.
The Right will tell you that this guy’s family owned this property since before God or something. Truth, Mexico owned that land and sold it to, wait for it, The United States of America in 1848. He says he doesn’t recognize the United States of America but he has an American flag behind him. He maintains that the State of Nevada and Clark County own the land even though that is fantasy. I’ve had Right Wing nut jobs actually tell me he had clear title to the land. Truth is, he never ever owned that land. And the thought that it belongs to the State of Nevada is in direct opposition to the Nevada State Consititution which states in Article 1, Section 2
Sec:?2.??Purpose of government; paramount allegiance to United States.??All political power is inherent in the people[.] Government is instituted for the protection, security and benefit of the people; and they have the right to alter or reform the same whenever the public good may require it. But the Paramount Allegiance of every citizen is due to the Federal Government in the exercise of all its Constitutional powers as the same have been or may be defined by the Supreme Court of the United States; and no power exists in the people of this or any other State of the Federal Union to dissolve their connection therewith or perform any act tending to impair[,] subvert, or resist the Supreme Authority of the government of the United States. The Constitution of the United States confers full power on the Federal Government to maintain and Perpetuate its existance [existence], and whensoever any portion of the States, or people thereof attempt to secede from the Federal Union, or forcibly resist the Execution of its laws, the Federal Government may, by warrant of the Constitution, employ armed force in compelling obedience to its Authority.
Bundy’s Mormon family homesteaded that land in 1880 supposedly but he did not own it. He never owned it. All he had was a lease with the BLM to graze his cattle. Nothing more. I love when people say somebody has “clear title”. I know there is no such thing as “clear title”. Title is always subject to at the very least property taxes. And it rolls from there. Maybe his leasehold was clear title but that’s not freehold title you asshats.
I’m sick of these asshats, I’m sick of these freaks with guns arming themselves against basically the Park and Rec department of the United States of America. I am an American. I want every one of these people arrested. I want the cattle sent to auction to pay for my resources that are being wasted and I want to spend time with real Americans, not these traitors.
Which gets me to what I’ve actually been thinking about this morning. More violence has be imparted on our country by Right Wing extremists than by Al Qaeda since 9/11. Once you add in 9/11 you have to add in Timothy McVeigh. They both blew up buildings, Al Qaeda just made a bigger mess than McVeigh did. Although Al Qaeda didn’t kill children in a pre-school so I think you have to call that one even.
Threats are threats, no matter how they are cloaked. The truth is there is no news or journalism out there any more. Only propaganda and entertainment. Enough is enough.
