|Bundy Militia doing traffic stops?|

Millionaire, freeloading cattle rancher Clive Bundy’s day in the sun is over but the sovereign citizen types that flocked to Nevada to “defend” Bundy against “jack-booted, federal government thugs,” look like they’re just getting started. But now that Constitutional Sheriff and Internet personality Sheriff Mack doesn’t have to use women and kids as human shields against the FBI and DHS what is it exactly that the tactical liberty brigade is up to? It looks very much like some improvisational and completely illegal do-it-ourselves policing
Speaking of Internet entrepreneur and hero to sovereign citizens everywhere Sheriff Mack, how far off the rails does one have to get before they say something like this:
“We were actually strategizing to put all the women up at the front. If they are going to start shooting, it’s going to be women that are going to be televised all across the world getting shot by these rogue federal officers. I would have put my own wife or daughters there, and I would have been screaming bloody murder to watch them die.”
If nothing else, it’s certainly an indication that “women and children first,” means different things to different people.
Thankfully cooler and much saner heads prevailed.
But back when Bundy’s “stand-off” with the feds began, it seemed like every yahoo with free time and a “Don’t tread on me!” t-shirt amassed in Nevada to help Bundy fend off the feds.
Now that Bundy’s pretty much outed himself as little more than a confused racist what are his freedom fighting volunteers supposed to do?
How about scare the holy hell out of local residents and taxpayers with militia-run checkpoints?
According to multiple media reports, a growing number of Bunkerville residents want to see the armed militiamen go home.
According to a letter from Rep. Steven Horsford, D-Nev., to Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie, local residents are fed up with the heavily armed political activists.
Horsford, whose congressional district includes Bunkerville, wrote that his constituents are concerned about Bundy supporters carrying weapons near local churches, schools and elsewhere. This is Nevada after all, not Georgia.
The letter also says militiamen have a presence on state and local roads as well as federal highways. In some areas, according to the letter, militiamen have set up checkpoints where drivers are stopped and asked to provide a proof of residency.
If this strikes you as ironic, join the club. Nothing says “liberty” like being subjected to illegal checkpoints manned by intoxicated sovereign citizens right?
It’s unclear if the militia freedom-stop check points are still up and running but what is clear is this- There’s a freedom party for liberty lovers out in Nevada and none of the participants want it to end.
And even though Glenn Beck and FOX News have abandoned Bundy faster than a world-class sprinter can run out of a burning building, his fans are reluctant for the good times to end and are standing by their man like Loretta Lynn.
"One thing I want everybody to know: The character of this man is unmatched," one of Bundy’s fanboy/security force field operations specialists told reporters about Bundy.
One of the easiest ways to spot a “sovereign citizen,” besides the tattoos and freedom-t-shirts is their peculiar command of their native tongue.
So no matter what you're dealing with today or how difficult it might seem, just thank your lucky stars you're not the local sheriff that's ostensibly in charge of cleaning this mess up.
