Clark County Commissioner Tom Collins is catching major backlash following his comments that Utahns, who are planning to travel to Nevada to offer support to Cliven Bundy and his family against a tyrannical federal government and the thug agency known as the Bureau of Land Management. What was so offensive? Apparently Collins said they “better have funeral arrangements.”
Darin Bushman, a Piute County, Utah, commissioner revealed what took place between Collins and him after he spoke to Collins about the complaints of Utah ranchers and some of his own County Commission complaining about the tactics of the Bureau of Land Management agents in their illegal seizure of Bundy’s land and 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 County 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,” wrote Bushman on his official Facebook page.
“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 Bundys want peace, they don’t want any violence going on so all these gun-packing folks just need to go home.”
Bushman didn’t back down from his comments, even after the Las Vegas Review Journal picked up the story, and Cliven Bundy called on Sheriff Gillespie to start arresting BLM federal agents on charges of trespassing and theft. He went back to Facebook and wrote, “I guess I’ve made an enemy in Las Vegas.” The commissioner also lambasted Clark County Sheriff Douglas Gillespie as being, ‘too spineless to exercise his Jurisdiction.'”
Some accused Bushman of using tax payer money to support Cliven Bundy, but he encouraged tax payers to verify that he had not used such fund, but rather paid for his support “on my own dime.”
Since the Sheriff of Clark County has seen fit to not do his duty and step between Bundy and the Feds, Bushman recommends calling upon Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Mast. He wrote,
We must all write, call, file complaints with the AG’s office in Nevada to Excercise their jurisdiction and throw the BLM Law Enforcement Officers off their land. You can email her at [email protected] You can call their hotline at 702-486-3132, or 702-486-3420. You can Fax 702-486-3768. or
Send her a letter at Grant Sawyer Building
555 E. Washington Avenue, Suite 3900
Las Vegas, NV 89101

‘Bushman questioned Collins’ santity saying, “”This guy was just off-the-hook weird. I’ve never ran into a fellow commissioner who treated me like that.”
A meeting is scheduled for next week to discuss Collins’ comments and issues of decorum. More than likely, there will be no serious repercussions for Collins, though there should be.
Whether people from Utah come or not, which they are most likely doing, thousands of militia from across the United States are heading towards Bunkerville, Nevada. I say it is about time the people start putting the feds in their place when it comes to their illegal actions. After all, they are doing it in a thuggish cartel style, but not lawful.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
