Hannity and Fox News had no choice but to condemn Bundy and call him a racist if they wanted to keep their jobs as political party propagandists.
Well, just go back to the source of the problem. Andrew Jackson and Martin van Buren said they were starting the Democratic Party to protect slavery. That is just a fact of history. England had just abolished slavery by a vote of Parliament, and the Democratic Party was started to keep something similar from happening in the United States. I can't really see Cliven Bundy losing sleep over being called a racist by members of the political party that imposed slavery on the United States for sixty years.
So you really believed that spotted owls and desert tortoises were in danger.
Janet Napolitano inflicted her worst damage against the United States as Attorney General and Governor of Arizona. When citizens of Arizona passed an open primary initiative in 1998, Janet Napolitano proposed that if Republican legislators moved the Presidential Primary to February, she could provide an opinion that independent voters could not vote in the Presidential Primary because it was not mentioned by name in the open primary initiative. Republican legislators moved the Presidential Primary to February and then Republicans rewarded the Attorney General by selecting her as Governor over their own nominee, Matt Salmon for governor in the election of 2002, In 2005 Janet Napolitano signed into law a Senate bill that removed the option to register independent from the Arizona voter registration form with the following effect on independent voter registration in Arizona: 2000-2002 107,715 2002-2004 165,771 2004-2006 26,384 Through all of this, the news media portrayed Janet Napolitano as the greatest friend independent voters ever had.

All political parties have a long sordid history. George Washington pointed that out in 1796.

A supreme Court case in 1803 in which the Supreme Court said it was striking down an act of Congress enabled the Democratic Party to impose slavery on the United States for the next sixty years through Supreme Court decisions in favor of slavery, which Congress could not legislate against because the Supreme Court had declared itself to be a legislative body with greater powers than Congress. Abraham Lincoln turned this on its head by writing the Emancipation Proclamation and getting Congress to pass the 13th Amendment, re-asserting once again that the legislative and executive branches of government were stronger than the judicial branch. In 1973 the Supreme Court imposed abortion by saying it was striking down all state laws against abortion. What Americans need to do is say that the Supreme Court is not a legislature, and, while it can rule whatever way it chooses in any given case, its opinion is law only in that case and no other, which is the power the Constitution gives to the Supreme Court.
There is no way to push back against the Supreme Court. They were used by the Democratic Party to impose slavery on the United States for sixty years. It took a Civil War to change that. I would not recommend another Civil War.
It used to be against the law for common people to read the Bible. Only priests were allowed to read or interpret it.
What think ye of Christ? Whose son is he? The Jews understood a little better than you do, and they were the ones who crucified Christ.
I remember being stopped by a police officer one time and being asked for my identification. It was a woman police officer. I told her I did not have any identification with me. Why not? she asked. I know who I am, I told her. She decided to leave me alone.
