Instead of keeping quiet and let things play off, Reid went off the deep end into a deranged rant by calling Cliven Bundy supporters domestic terrorists and basically called Bundy and his supporters un-American. Apparently, in Reid's feeble and senile mind, anyone who disagrees with him is un-American, like conservatives, the Koch Brothers and now Bundy and his supporters.
Wearing a cowboy hat and with a copy of the U.S. Constitution poking from his shirt pocket, controversial rancher Cliven Bundy on Friday asked dozens of supporters of his cattle-grazing feud with federal land managers what they thought of U.S. Sen. Harry Reid calling them “domestic terrorists.”
The supporters, many wearing name tags that said “domestic terrorist,” erupted with cheers and applause.
“That’s what I thought. I thought Harry was right,” said the 67-year-old Bundy, who was accompanied by armed escorts.
He made the statement before a “Patriot Party” that started at 5 p.m. with music by Madison Rising and Ron Keel, who sang with Black Sabbath briefly in 1984. A party atmosphere among a few hundred people grew as more supporters trickled in around 5 p.m. Some people were cooling off in the river while dozens of armed militia members wearing camouflaged fatigues patrolled in and around the area. http://www.reviewjournal.com/news/nevada/bundy-supporters-party-welcome-domestic-terrorist-label
Reid is the most hated man in Nevada and if he wants to inflame the support of Cliven Bundy, he certainly did so.
