Where’s Harry Reid On Ferguson?

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid

When armed protesters stood beside Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and faced down equally armed agents of the federal Bureau of Land Management in April, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid called them domestic terrorists. This despite the fact that the armed protesters broke no laws and destroyed no property.

As it was, the only people destroying property, harming livestock and wildlife — and people — were government agents.

In Ferguson, Missouri, over the weekend, stores were looted, police reported they were shot at by the crowds and at least two people in the crowds suffered gunshot wounds. Police responded by deploying officers decked out in full military gear and driving armored cars, firing tear gas, smoke grenades and rubber bullets at the crowds — media included. Gov. Jay Nixon called out the National Guard Monday morning.

Reid has been deathly silent on Ferguson.

Perhaps it’s because there’s no money to be made by Reid in Ferguson. The truth is there is little to no sympathy held by Reid and his statist cohorts for blacks — or any other class or ethnic group they designate as the cause du jour — despite their platitudes.

Were there money to be made there, Reid would interject himself. He was interested in the Bundy ranch outcome only because he, his son Rory and their crony capitalist criminal partners had dollar signs in their eyes and Bundy and his supporters stood in their way.
