Bundy Supporter Compares Rancher to Rosa Parks, Likens Feds to Nazi Soldiers

An ex-Arizona sheriff and supporter of Cliven Bundy spoke out to defend the Nevada rancher in a radio interview this week, flagged by Right Wing Watch, and he compared Bundy to Rosa Parks while decrying federal authorities for exhibiting Nazi-like tactics by saying they’re just following orders.

Richard Mack told radio host Steve Deace that Bundy took a stand against the government “trying to make sure other peasants don’t rise up with their pitchforks” and said this moment is exactly like “Rosa Parks refusing to get to the back of the bus.”

When Deace brought up the “just following orders” justification that sounded to him like it was coming from “tyrannical government,” Mack connected it to the Nazi soldiers who said the same thing. He said, “The soldiers that were put on trial at Nuremberg used that as a defense, and it was disallowed. They said anybody should know you don’t get to just kill people and then claim that you were just following orders.”
