MANY UNVACCINATED TRAVELERS BRINGING MEASLES BACK HOME AFTER TRIPS TO THE

CHOOSE TO DELAY VACCINES PAST THE RECOMMENDED AGES.

NEVADA RANCHER-OC-SOTVO


THIS STORY IS MAKING NATIONAL HEADLINES.

A NEVADA RANCHER HAS LOST MUCH OF THE NATIONAL SUPPORT HE RECEIVED IN HIS FIGHT WITH THE BUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT.

MANY CALL HIS RECENT REMARKS "OFFENSIVE" OR "RACIST."

"I didn't really mean to compare it to slavery. I meant to compare it with maybe a life on the farm or life back in the South where they had some chickens and gardens and they had something to do."

THE RANCHER SAYS HE WAS JUST SPEAKING FROM HIS HEART.

AND *CLIVEN BUNDY* STANDS BY WHAT HE SAID.

THE NEVADA RANCHER HAD STRONG CONSERVATIVE SUPPORT. IN HIS FIGHT AGAINST THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND WHAT HE SAW AS HIS RIGHT TO GRAZE CATTLE ON PUBLIC LAND.

MUCH OF THAT SUPPORT IS NOW GONE. Return to index of stories...
