Nevada's Cliven Bundy Caucus Takes Aim At The BLM

The South has nothing on batsh*t crazy Nevada. Pro-slavery, pro-Cliven Bundy and more insanity promises a bleak future for Nevada's children.
Views:

Nevada, like Utah, is heavily populated by Republicans, Tea-Partiers and Mormons with a Hell On Wheels mentality when it comes to paying taxes and basic civics. Like so many of today's Republicans, these elected officials are also critics of the whole concept of government and aren't terribly interested making it work. The Mormons who rule the roost in Nevada and harbor some terrifying views the local electorate should know about, since they failed to turn up on election day. Nevada is as Red as Texas and will be following suit with Tea-Party fundamentals replacing sane governance.

Being a supporter of Cliven Bundy's non-payment of taxes, one might think, would be a blemish on anyone's records. Not so in this state. We'll begin with Nevada Assemblywoman, Michele Fiore. You might remember her from her appearance on All In With Chris Hayes when she stood up for Cliven Bundy's rights to be a moocher. She's also a gun nut who believes that we should arm teachers. But wait, it gets even better! She also has a promising career in soft pornography.

Clark County, Nevada elected Crescent Hardy (R-Nv) to replace Democratic Congressman Steven Horsford. Hardy is a member of the LDS church with strong Republican values like homophobia, by equating ENDA to segregation. Charlie Pierce put it best.

Meanwhile, over in Nevada, Bad Historical Analogy Theater opened with a bang as a state assemblyman named Cresent Hardy saw the shadow of Jim Crow behind the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, and you have to squint really, really hard to do that.

Ira Hansen, another Mormon, has a budding career in satirical writing in addition to his job as a plumber and the Speaker of the Nevada Assembly. He suggests masturbation should be taxed among other things in this article for the Daily Sparks Tribune, a Reno area local paper. Hansen also faces criminal charges for setting illegal traps to kill defenseless animals. He also lost a job as a radio host for anti-Semitic comments. He recommended Jim Wheeler, another Nevadan with fines and charges pending, to chair the committee on transportation.

Wheeler was made famous with his comments about voting to reinstate slavery if that's what his constituents wanted. He also responded to a comment on Facebook that said "get rid of the BLM" by saying, "good idea."

Wheeler is also an ardent supporter of Nevada Sovereignty

There are so many nuts running the show here in Nevada I could go on for days. Just remember, Democrats. By not showing up on election day or being apathetic and ignorant of politics, you have done irreparable damage by essentially putting crazy people in charge of Nevada.
