Live From Bundy Ranch: Assemblywoman Destroys MSNBC Host On The Air

Nevada State Assemblywoman Michele Fiore, who has been on the front lines at the Bundy Ranch for the past week, appeared on MSNBC to debate Chris Hayes regarding the Bureau of Land Management’s use of excessive force in attempting to collect past-due grazing fees.

While Hayes tried desperately to blame the Bundy family for bringing the armed standoff on itself, Fiore expertly guided the conversation back to an issue about which most freedom-loving Americans can agree.

“Generally, when our federal government comes in armed, we expect a bigger problem” than an outstanding debt, she explained. She didn’t deny the Bundys owe grazing fees; however, she did excoriate the federal government for using threats of violence in its collection efforts. Additionally, she explained that the amount allegedly owed has fluctuated greatly over the course of the standoff.

“What is the bill?” she asked. “No one has seen it. The media is going crazy.”

When Hayes asked his guest if she recognized the federal government’s authority in the situation, she said she recognized that it had “overstepped and overreached in our state of Nevada” and that the “BLM had zero stewardship in herding cattle [and] slaughtering cattle.”

As a result of the overzealous pursuit of the Bundy family, she said she is going to “request either the resignation or termination of the person that had ordered this to be done.”

Unsatisfied, Hayes asked the same question again.

“I recognize the authority that they believe they have,” she acknowledged. “I just question it.”

The host continued driving home the point that Cliven Bundy owed the BLM money. Fiore, however, remained resolute, explaining that has nothing to do with why she and millions of other Americans are outraged.

“When in the heck do we send our federal government with arms to collect a bill?” she asked.

Later in the interview, she made her argument personal for the “All In” host.

“If you owe the federal government, Chris, do you want them coming to your house, pointing guns at your wife and children?” she asked. “Is that OK with you?”

Finally, she pointed out the callousness of BLM officials who gunned down cattle during the standoff. Hayes seemed unconcerned with the prospect of killing livestock; however, Fiore was once again able to get the last word.

“What’s going to happen to the cows later on?” Hayes asked.

Fiore responded: “Are you saying it’s OK to cruelly slaughter them because they’re raised for beef?” she asked. “I hope you retract those words because that’s pretty sad, Chris.”

Once again, the smug façade of a partisan MSNBC personality is eradicated upon being confronted with the unadulterated truth.

    Who really watches MSNBC?I have found them to be the propaganda arm of our want to be Masters, further what has happened to journalistic integrity you know the search for facts not factoids? All of the news outlets (yes this includes FOX) do not report the truth or the real facts, you have to read a great deal and try to connect the nuggets of facts that you get from various sources to try and stay truly informed.
    After watching every american outlet (TV, Papers and internet) stop employing journalists and just employ "personality's" our news has become tabloid and base with no real substance. The left uses inflammatory speech then hides behind the First Amendment or Senatorial Privilege to libel and besmirch what they can not debate, when someone disagrees with them then are "Racists or Domestic Terrorists". I can't wait for the "correction" that is coming.

    I'd like to see how many people watch a dickhead network like MSNBC because I'd rather go out and watch grass grow.The best place is when that scumbag Reid dies and see if grass will grow over his dead ass

    She put him in his place comparing legal cows with illegal aliens. If there willing to defend property with guns and killing cows, then why the hell isn’t anyone protecting our borders?

    • Edwardkoziol says:

      MLC isn't it something to worry about grass and willing to kill Americans and yet not protect our borders from a illegal spic invasion.Give Dingy Harry Reid a gun and let him be the first to shoot an American instead of making the stoogies do it.
