Rightwing Hypocrites

Nevada Militia Sets Up Armed Checkpoints, Demands to See Drivers' I.D.
Yes, that's a bit redundant.  But just look what these freedom fighters are up to now in Nevada. Scratch a libertarian, find a tin-pot despot underneath.
They came to defend an old cattleman and their principles of life, liberty, and property. But apparently other rightful property owners in rural Nevada don't feel terribly free under the security regime recently built around them by the militiamen protecting rancher Cliven Bundy.
Often amazed by some people's complete lack of self-awareness.

The letter also says militiamen have a presence on state and local roads as well as federal highways. In some areas, according to the letter, militiamen have set up checkpoints where drivers are stopped and asked to provide a proof of residency.

There's no proof that anyone has actually been stopped by these guys. And if someone has been stopped, nothing is keeping the stoppees from taking their story to the media.
