Tom DeLay Praises the latest wingnut hero, Cliven Bundy
Hey Tom, do you realize that if Cliven had his way, you would have never even had a job as part of the US Congress? After all, as you said he doesn’t recognize the existence of the federal government. The same federal government that you used to be a part of.
People who live in the United States can’t be allowed to just pick and choose which laws they want to obey, and than insist they not be held accountable for doing so. The declaration of Independence isn’t even a legal document, unlike the constitution, so its not part of the law of the land. Cliven Bundy also isn’t standing up for the constitution either, because even ignoring everything else, the constitution recognizes the existence of the federal government and has since day one of its existence. We also wouldn’t even be a United States of America without a federal government.
This would be a reason enough not to support him, even if we ignore the fact that Cliven Bundy is a racist who thinks blacks were better off as slaves, and the origin of his nonsensical “Sovereign Citizen” ideology. Bundy is a criminal, not a hero. He’s not standing up against tyranny, and if Tom DeLay really valued the rule of law, he wouldn’t support him. I guess the rule of law is only important to him when he agrees with it.
