I wasn’t the first enviro-dweeb to bastardise that cultural reference to underscore the demise of the American West under the hoofed locusts of the meat industrial complex, but I dearly hoped I might be one of the last. Lo, here we are nearly two decades later and still there are assholes like Cliven Bundy and his militia thugs acting like the West is theirs for the taking. All I can say is I hope he has his affairs in order–David Koresh didn’t.
Here, Jon Stewart takes an insightful dive into welfare rancher Bundy’s twisted crusade and finds Fox News’ Sean Hannity has his pom poms in a lather for team Bundy. Wait, wasn’t Hannity going to get the hell out of New York (if not America) sometime earlier this year? I knew it was too good to be true.
