Former GOP House leader Tom DeLay supports Cliven Bundy's efforts not to obey the law or recognize the federal government. Sound familiar?
Former GOP Leader Tom DeLay Defends Cliven Bundy's 'Sovereignty'


That dancing fool, Tom DeLay is back at playing a sucker. On his Washington Times radio show he defended Cliven Bundy for "standing up for the rule of law" and doesn't have to recognize the federal government. Or something. That's hysterical since he never bothered following any rules when he was Speaker of the House.

On his Washington Times Radio show last Wednesday, former House GOP leader Tom DeLay reiterated his defense of Cliven Bundy, arguing that the Nevada rancher — who has repeatedly lost in the courts and refuses to recognize the existence of the United States government — doesn’t have to obey the law on land use.

“He doesn’t owe the federal government anything because he doesn’t recognize that the federal government can come take his livelihood away from him and he’s standing up for the rule of law, the real law, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, and fighting against what is happening to him,” DeLay said.

“The oppression and the tyranny that is coming from our government is just outrageous…. The federal government is building its weapons of oppression and tyranny as we speak.”

DeLay also warned that the government may incite “violence” against “law-abiding American citizens to affect their tyranny.”

“This could get really out of hand, and I’m just really worried with the kind of attitude that this government has that they’re going to come back and do some real harm to the Bundy family and the others that are standing up for their rights,”

Almost every conservative has now come out against Cliven Bundy after his insane racist remarks came out and with the facts of his claims squarely on the side of the federal government, many more are agreeing with the BLM and admitting that he has no case or a leg to stand on.
