'Who's the Real Crook?': D'Souza Takes on Reid's Harsh Rhetoric on Bundys

As seen on The Kelly File

Conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza hit back at Nevada Sen. Harry Reid's harsh rhetoric against embattled rancher Cliven Bundy and his supporters.

D'Souza spoke to Megyn Kelly from the scene of the "range war" controversy on the Bundy ranch.

Reid has dialed up his attacks on the Bundy family, claiming repeatedly that the Bundy patriarch "doesn't pay his taxes." The latest attacks from Reid come in the wake of the senator calling Bundy, his family and supporters "domestic terrorists."

D'Souza told Kelly that the scene on the ranch was like something out of an old Western. "The real question is: Who's the real crook? Who's really fanning the flames and tensions?" D'Souza said.

"Terrorism is when you target innocent civilians, and when you call people 'domestic terrorists,' you're almost implying that they should be targeted and killed," D'Souza said.

"This is very inflammatory and, I think, irresponsible rhetoric from Harry Reid, and the people here are very angry about it."

D'Souza told Kelly that small children on the ranch had taken to wearing name tags bearing the words "domestic terrorist" as a form of protest against Reid's remarks, and pointed out the bizarre juxtaposition the name tags represent. 

"When you look at an all-American kid with a 'domestic terrorist' sign, you begin to see the preposterousness of what is really going on here," D'Souza said.
