A 20-year dispute between a Nevada rancher and federal rangers over illegal cattle grazing erupted into an Old West-style showdown on the open range this week, even prompting self-proclaimed members of militia groups from across the country to join the rancher in fighting what they say is U.S. "tyranny."
What began as a legal fight between longtime rancher Cliven Bundy and the U.S. Bureau of Land Management has escalated as Bundy kept his cattle on the federal land, and the government has responded by beginning roundups of the livestock.
A confrontation teetered on violence Wednesday when Bundy family members and dozens of supporters angrily confronted a group of rangers holding Tasers and barking dogs on leashes near Bunkerville, about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas.
The usual crap, heavy on the pearl-clutching about MILITIAS!!!! and scare quotes around "tyranny". Taking a breaking situation with a lot of different things going on and dry-cleaning so it fits into the right pigeon hole.
You know, being a Leftist retard must make life much easier. No more wondering what to think about things, no more worrying that things may not be as they seem, no more burning up liver cells because you're SO mad people are lying to you all the time. Just lie back in the big mainstream media hammock and sip on your Michelle Obama-approved diet pop.
Oh well, the Big Networks have finally clued in to the fightin' cowboys down in Nevada. Here's hoping some network trucks get burnt by the BLM. That would be sweet.
