Cliven Bundy is a rancher in Nevada. He believes the Federal Government is foreign. He does not pay taxes. He does not pay the required grazing fees required to have his cattle graze on federal public lands.

Cliven Bundy have continuously lost his case in court. Still, when the government went to seize his cattle for his million dollar bill, many from Right Wing militias from across the country came to his rescue. They came with rifles, sniper guns, and other weapons. They pointed these at our law and order personnel.

On Thursday, Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) said Cliven Bundy and his band of thugs are domestic terrorists. Picture a group of Muslim men similarly equipped when the Federal Government attempted to serve a warrant in a mosque. Would the government have behaved as they did with Cliven Bundy? Or would they have gone in with blazing fire. How would it be covered by the traditional news media? Would they have a cheerleader like Fox News who continues to promote these freeloading law breakers?

This is a serious affront to our democracy. Yet, the coverage my some outlets do not understand that they are playing with fire.
