Not only is the Bundy standoff not over, but Senator Harry Reid (D-Nev.) revealed yesterday that a federal task force is being put together to deal with the situation, and anyone who supports Bundy is a domestic terrorist.Â
During an appearance at a Las Vegas Review-Journal â€œHashtags & Headlinesâ€ event, Reid said the following:
Those people who hold themselves out to be patriots are not. Theyâ€™re nothing more than domestic terrorists…I repeat: what went on up there was domestic terrorism.
Pay very close attention: supporters of Bundy are no longer merely breaking the law, but are now being labeled as domestic terrorists, and even worse, a “federal task force” is being put together to deal with these domestic terrorists.
There were hundreds â€” hundreds of people from around the country â€” that came there. They had sniper rifles on the freeway. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons.
So according to Reid, there’s a group of domestic terrorists in the Nevada desert, armed with sniper rifles and assault weapons.
I’m not going to make predictions of what will or will not happen, but I do know one thing – language is important, and when you start to see language shift, it’s usually a good indicator that a shift in actions/tactics will follow.
