Notice To Bundy Ranch Supporters: “Better Have Funeral Plans”
The Commissioner over Clark County, Nevada, where Bundy Ranch is located, has sparked outrage among individuals in nearby Utah who plan to travel to the ranch to support Cliven Bundy. He has informed Bundy supporters from the that state that if the intend to participate in the standoff against feds that they “better have funeral plans”.
Commissioner Tom Collins made the preposterous remarks to the Commissioner of Piute County, Utah, Darin Bushman, during a conversation between the two where Bushman was complaining about the Bureau of Land Management’s tactics in seizing Bundy’s cattle.
“I was just told by commissioner Collins of Clark County NV that all of us folks from Utah are a bunch of “inbred bastards” and if we are coming to Clark Cointy NV to support Cliven Bundy we all “better have funeral plans”. We should “turn our asses around on mind our own f-ing business”. Now there’s some classy leadership for you,” Bushman wrote on his official Facebook page.
The story garnered attention from the Las Vegas Review Journal who reported on Collin’s remarks. Bushman followed up on his facebook page following their coverage saying, “I guess I’ve made an enemy in Las Vegas.” Then continued on, this time lambasting Clark County Sheriff Douglas Gillespie for being, “too spineless to exercise his Jurisdiction”. Earlier this week, Cliven Bundy called on Sheriff Gillespie to start arresting BLM feds on charges of trespassing and theft.
Collins’ remarks were made in the context of him fearing that protests against the BLM could turn violent, which is ironic given that the only person invoking direct violence is Collins himself.
“I’m trying to do everything I can to discourage anybody who tells me they’re coming here with loaded guns,” Collins said. “I’m going to tell them not to come,” adding, “The Bundy’s want peace, they don’t want any violence going on so all these gun-packing folks just need to go home.”
A meeting is scheduled for next week bu Clark County commissioners to discuss issues of decorum in response to Collins’ comments. It is unclear whether or not any action will be taken against him.
