Reid: Bundy Supporters Are “Domestic Terrorists”

(LAS VEGAS, KXNT)–Supporters of Bunkerville rancher Cliven Bundy have been called domestic terrorists by Senator Harry Reid.

He made the comments during an appearance at a Review-Journal event, and repeated them, saying “what happened there was domestic terrorism’

The government says Bundy owes more than a million dollars in grazing fees and fines stemming from a 20-year dispute over trespass cattle. After obtaining court orders and beginning a roundup of cattle more than a week ago, BLM backed down, called off the roundup, and returned the cattle, after armed supporters of Bundy converged on the area.

Reid says Bundy is a law breaker. He says he will not second-guess the BLM decision to call off its round-up under a threat of potential violence, but that he says Bundy is wrong.

In an interview with KXNT later, Bundy said “Talk about terrorists. It seemed like the people who were holding those high-powered weapons against we the people of the stateof Nevada and visiting neighbors, they had to be the terrorists.”

Bundy says his battles with the government have little to do with cattle and grazing fees, but what he calls federal power over a soverign state. “I’m the last man standing. They’ve already taken it away from my neighbors, all across the western United States they’ve taken a lot of it. And I’ve just been what I guess you’d call stubborn enough or whatever to not say ‘no’. And they’ve come at me ’cause I’m an example of ‘no’.”
