Sean Hannity has been fearmongering the Nevada Rancher story the last few days as if his life depended on it. Tuesday night, he threw more butane on the Fox News fire by using anti-government militia nut Richard Mack, who leads the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association as an informed source who's claiming a possible attack is being planned. And you know that If the Bundys were doing this while George Bush was still in office, he'd be attacking the Bundy family and not embracing them.
Hannity: According to online reports a former Nevada sheriff claims his sources inside the federal government say that the BLM maybe quietly planning to raid the Bundy ranch.
We have intel. sources government and law enforcement insiders that have told us the federal government was considering pulling back, having us think everything was fine and then when we got comfortable and dropped our defenses then they would come in and raid the ranch. We don't know if it was a specific plan, but after hearing Harry Reid's comments, we think they are going to come in for a surprise midnight raid.
Let's face it, if the feds came in they wouldn't stand a chance and a lot of people would be killed for absolutely nothing because these anti-fed nuts refused to comply with the law.
Hannity had the Bundy family on again and was trying to rile them up by bringing up past federal raids and he asked:
Hannity: What would happen if they came in the early morning hours one day to your ranch?
Bundy: If they come tonight we'll just deal with ya.
So what are you going to do if they came guns a-blazing or try to drain your bank accounts? Do you got an itchy trigger finger?
Is Sean trying to get them to start a real incident? I remember when he parked in front of Terri Schiavo's hospice for days on end, whipping up resentments from the pro-life nuts. This time these people are carrying guns.
Cliven said he'd only surrender to the Clark County Sheriff, who he feels is the only legal authority in Nevada.
Hannity then continued to poke and prod the family by asking his son if he's going to protect his father from the feds if they do attempt a midnight raid?
Hannity: What are your plans if in fact they come late in the night?
Ammon: Well, they're going to do what they want to do if that's their plan. If they took him, even if they killed him the people will answer to that. What I mean by that, they will answer to that. They will be the ones to make it right. They will be the ones to stand up.
Hannity: Do you worry that in fact they kill either your dad or somebody in your family?
Bundy: This battle has been going on for twenty years...If death were our main fear we wouldn't be here today. Freedom is much greater than death.
Hannity: I can't imagine that they would ratchet this up.
I can't believe Hannity is ratcheting this situation up. Here we have commando militia freaks joining in with anti-federal government types. just waiting to see if they can make this into the Gunfight at the OK Corral.
If there is gunfire, I'll put a lot of blame on Hannity's shoulders. He's acting like a demented instigator. I truly believe he's hoping for an armed conflict to happen so he can make cash from the suffering and boost his ratings.
(I get a gold star for watching Sean Hannity's train wreck of a show.)
