Freedom Cattle

Via TPM:

Armed anti-government activists have forced federal authorities to stop their seizure of cattle that were illegally grazing on federal land in Nevada.

“Based on information about conditions on the ground, and in consultation with law enforcement, we have made a decision to conclude the cattle gather because of our serious concern about the safety of employees and members of the public,” Bureau of Land Management Director Neil Kornze said, according to ABC News.

Self-described militias had come to protest the government action against Cliven Bundy, a cattle rancher who is feuding with BLM over his use of federal land.

You know who the self-described militias are blaming all of this on, of course: the evil Kenyan gay socialist in the White House who dictated the terms using his dictatorial powers of Executive Order 12548, signed in … 1986 by Ronald Reagan.

Oops.

  1. I note that one of the reasons the BLM was confiscating the man’s beef was that he owed over $1 million in grazing fees. It’s not as though he had been blocked from using the land. He hadn’t paid his rent and his property was being taken. Happens everywhere.

    • Wingnuts don’t recognize the ability of the federal government to hold land or assess fees for the use of the same, so there’s no point in bringing up the bill. Federally-held public land is beyond oxymoron to these volk: the idea translates to one more facet of the Tyranny of the Federal Government because the National Park System is unConstitutional.

      I won’t say that these idjits have a (wingnutty) answer to every obstacle – just that they’re in the same camp with the ones who print their own currency and insist it’s legal tender.
