Here's a pop quiz. Find the contradiction in this quote:

"I'll tell you, there's unhappy people here, and we are rioting against the federal government, those people that are carrying guns and pointing them at us...I don't think we're going to put up with that in America."

Would that America be a little slice of Nevada where domestic terrorists dwell and refuse to acknowledge the federal government, or is that America the one where fifty states are united under one national flag and live under the rule of law?

Also, would that America be the one where they have no problem with this...


...but whine about the federal government carrying guns and pointing them at them?

The victimhood just rolls off Bundy in big sweaty drops, courtesy of your Fox News hosts, who want you to know the badass federal government is full of mean people who want to arrest moochers and call them horrible names like domestic terrorist. Never mind the pesky truth, it's just mean, am I right?

Reid didn't just toss the term around, either. He explained that when so-called patriots show up with assault rifles and line up women in front so that if anyone gets hurt, women get hurt first, that's domestic terrorism. It is. Here's the video:

Right wing heads are exploding across the country over Reid's truth-telling. Crazy San Diego Radio Guy Pete Santilli wrote a blog post explaining that those brave women volunteered themselves as human shields.

The Bundy Women are among the most courageous women in America, and they volunteered to be in front of the line in the face of tyranny. They were not afraid to die in pursuit of liberty and freedom.

How chivalrous of him to say so. Actually, the Bundy Women are among the dumbest women in America and they should all be forced to take an actual civics class before taking one for their man.

This isn't some noble form of civil disobedience happening here. These are United States citizens -- and I use the term guardedly -- shedding the mantle of citizenship to serve their personal obsessions. They're not fighting for anyone's freedom. They're fighting for some perverted "right" to remain lawless while terrorizing the rest of the nation.

Fox News is irresponsible for giving Bundy more airtime to stir up the haters. If this does not resolve in a peaceful fashion, if anyone is hurt or killed, they will own it just as much as Bundy and lunatics like Pete Santilli.

I'm thinking domestic terrorism might be too mild a term. Cliven Bundy and his militia pals are looking more and more like a cult.

Can you help us out?
