Glorifying a gun-toting scofflaw is disgraceful

Over the last week the tea party wing of the Republican party, Fox News and the Republican National Committee has forever disgraced itself by supporting the actions of Nevada cattle rancher and tax deadbeat Cliven Bundy and his extremely well-armed supporters.

Mr. Bundy owes the U.S. government more than $1 million in fees and fines assessed by federal judges after grazing his cattle on public land for more than 20 years.

One of his supporters, a Richard Mack who is an NRA Hall of Famer and former Arizona sheriff, pledged in relation to the Bundy standoff, "We were actually strategizing to put all the women up at the front. If they're gonna start shooting, it's going to be women that are gonna be televised all across the world getting shot by these rogue federal officers."

Pledging to using women as human shields against federal officers in the event of a gunfight over a tax evading rancher with zero legal standing and zero support from any of his fellow cattleman?

Disgraceful, disgraceful, and disgraceful but that is modus operandi for the tea party, Fox News and the modern day Republican Party.
