Cliven Bundy Wants To Tell You All About 'The Negro'

Postby rabble » Thu Apr 24, 2014 8:35 am

From the Atlantic.
“I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro,” he said. Mr. Bundy recalled driving past a public-housing project in North Las Vegas, “and in front of that government house the door was usually open and the older people and the kids — and there is always at least a half a dozen people sitting on the porch — they didn’t have nothing to do. They didn’t have nothing for their kids to do. They didn’t have nothing for their young girls to do.

“And because they were basically on government subsidy, so now what do they do?” he asked. “They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton. And I’ve often wondered, are they better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things, or are they better off under government subsidy? They didn’t get no more freedom. They got less freedom.”


The article's link to the source at the Times also has some interesting quotes.
He was honored at a celebratory party on Friday night attended by 1,500 people, who wore “domestic terrorist” name tags, listened to cowboy poetry and ate hamburgers, hot dogs and Bundy beef. “This is the beginning of taking America back,” said Shawna Cox, who had come from Kanab, Utah, to support him.

Now we know what they are thinking of when they want to stockpile weapons against the government. Nice bunch of people.

Perhaps, but with a big difference: Reid works for change according to the rules from within the government, while Bundy works illegally against the gubmint.

Thus, Reid should be re-elected while Bundy is summarily executed.

While some conservatives straighforwardly condemn Bundy's remarks about race, others (like) Ned as a little more wishy-washy in that regard.

Arizona state Sen. Kelli Ward — who spoke at a Bundy rally in Nevada this month — wrote in an e-mail to The Washington Post: "Apparently he has some thoughts that aren't shared by many Americans. He is free to think and speak as he chooses (even if it may offend) and we are free to listen (or not) and form our own opinions. I am thankful for our amazing Constitution and the 1st Amendment right to freedom of speech — if I don't agree, I don't seek to silence or shame the speaker or to paint his associates with the broad brush of collective condemnation."


And:
Conservative talk radio host Dana Loesch, who has interviewed Bundy on her show, wrote a blog post today on the rancher's remarks. "I hope no one is surprised that an old man rancher isn’t media-trained to express himself perfectly."

Come Celebrate Bundy Fest 2014!

Man, part of me really wants to see this happen. The other part of me realizes that Bundy and his supporters would likely open fire on the attendees.

Oh, and Ned-- you absolutely SUCK at damage control.

Ned, how do you feel about your own inane imbecility? Is it something you wish you could overcome? Or is it more like acceptance and resignation?

It hurts, doesn't it Kurt? I mean, knowing that this goober racist is no worse than one of the leaders of the Democrat party.

So, the question is: Bundy thinks it's not OK to be a racist, but does Ned still defend his being one? Interesting, especially for a child porn watcher to comment on.
