Bundy Ranch Supporters Planned to Use Women as Human Shields (Video)

| by Michael Allen

While "militia" supporters of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy celebrate their "victory" over the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Richard Mack, a supporter of Bundy, said today that the militia planned to use women as human shields had BLM government agents started firing over the weekend.

According to The Blaze, Mack bragged today on Fox News (video below), “We were actually strategizing to put all the women up at the front If they are going to start shooting, it’s going to be women that are going to be televised all across the world getting shot by these rogue federal officers.”

Mack is a former Arizona Sheriff who founded the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association, an organization that opposes gun laws, the authority of the federal government and supports states’ rights.

MediaMatters.org also notes that militia members, who have promoted themselves as wholesome and brave folks, used crude language when they verbally confronted some federal agents over the weekend (video below).

Bundy supporters called the American agents, "terrorist,” “loser,” “chicken----,” and a “f------ p----.”
