It is a sad day in America when personalities on some news networks, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.) call Cliven Bundy a patriot.
This is a man who has not paid his grazing fees for 20 years.
He says he does not recognize the U.S. government, yet he rides his horse carrying an American flag.
He also says blacks were better off when they picked cotton. Militia members came to his aid loaded with weapons to use against their fellow Americans.
Never miss a local story.
Bundy and his followers are not patriots. They say they want to take back their country; not true. They want to overthrow their country.
Around the world, America’s enemies see this happening and smile. Across America some people are talking and posting things that fuel the far right, American militias and racism.
