“Domestic Terrorists” Celebrate At Bundy Ranch
Las Vegas, Nev. (CBS LAS VEGAS) – Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy celebrated what many of his supporters called a “victory” in the ongoing battle with the Bureau of Land Management.
Bundy and his supporters from around the country gathered at the Bundy Ranch for a barbecue Friday night. People came from around the country to join Bundy’s family, neighbors, and ranch hands to enjoy music, inspirational speeches and plenty of “Bundy Barbecue”.
A number of those in attendance had weapons strapped to their waist in what is called “open carry” mode. Others admitted to be in a “concealed carry” mode.
Bundy continues to deny charges made Wednesday by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid that he failed to pay his taxes. On Wednesday, Bundy told Kevin Wall of KXNT’s “Live and Local” that Reid is in error on the issue of taxes.
“He’s totally wrong. I pay taxes—and we’ve always paid taxes. I’ve paid taxes ever since I was in high school… As far as I know I’m up to date. I’m 100% with my taxes.”
As to the charge that his supporters are “domestic terrorists”, Bundy told KXNT that the real domestic terrorists are the BLM.
“Talk about terrorists, it seemed like those people who were holding those high-powered weapons against we the people of the state of Nevada and our visiting neighbors—they had to be the terrorists… It wasn’t the people that’s terrorists, it had to be the United States government, the BLM that had to be the terrorists.”
Bundy was relaxed during the barbecue-but admitted his battle with the BLM and Harry Reid is far from over.
