Republican politicians began backtracking on their support of Nevada anti-government rancher Cliven Bundy after the New York Times caught Bundy making racially-inflammatory remarks blaming African-Americans for willingly submiting to dependency on federal assistance.

“They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton,” Bundy was quoted as saying to a group of supporters last Saturday.“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.”

Bundy’s statements about “the Negro,” published on Wednesday, were made during his daily speech to supporters outside Bunkerville, Nevada, where a crowd gathered to support him in defiance of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) during an attempted round up of his cattle. The confrontation was the result of Bundy’s refusal to pay grazing fees on federally-owned land for more than 20 years, in spite of multiple court rulings against him. Bundy has stated on several occasions that he does not recognize the existence of the federal government.

During the speech, Bundy said he remembered driving past a public-housing project in North Las Vegas, which he called a “government house” with “always at least a half a dozen people sitting on the porch” with nothing to do.

The remarks brought about a quick rebuke from Chandler Smith, a spokesperson for Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV). Heller had previously called Bundy and his supporters “patriots” for their actions and challenged Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-NV) description of them as “domestic terrorists.”

Smith told the Times that Heller “completely disagrees with Mr. Bundy’s appalling and racist statements, and condemns them in the most strenuous way.”

Bundy’s speech also seemingly derailed Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott’s (R) apparent attempt to link his gubernatorial campaign to the Bunkerville camp; Abbott had allegedly written a letter to the BLM accusing it of “threatening” to seize land along the Red River in northern Texas.

But after being contacted regarding the rancher’s “Negro” remarks, a spokesperson for Abbott was quoted as saying that Abbott’s letter “was regarding a dispute in Texas and is in no way related to the dispute in Nevada.”

Sure you do Smugo, it's very helpful when you are trying to hide your own bigotry snd racism. For a person who is so concerned with his own self imagine you are totally transparent, Beat Cop. I'm betting that had a lot to do with you being relieved of duty, huh Dick Tracy?

Just listening to to the daily whining from the righties with a sub-human leader like Galt followed closely by a band of chimps way to numerous to mention makes for a fun day for normal Americans. Their ability to bent, twist, deny, lie, whine, cry and all the while ignoring the lost eight years of the worst presidency ever and the record shows that to be true. There obviously is a connection between blindness, ignorance, racism, and just plain cluelessness and becoming a bagger.

If conservatives believe these things, which are all good things, some on the left should reconsider what they believe. If not, then list what they do believe.
Don't think a lot of them could put it in writing:
A powerful bureaucracy
A bureaucratic-regulated marketplace
Politically correct liberties
An unscrupled society
A weak national defense.
But it would be interesting to see if they did.
You're full of crap as usual Carol. I have put it down in writing what I think this country and this government should be.
A government that's strong enough to rein in corporate abuses.
A marketplace that's regulated to insure the safety of the products sold and to provide a level playing field for both large and small companies.
I want liberties that are granted to all citizens and not determined by narrow religious bias.
Your "scruples" are as shallow as the morning dew on a blade of grass and disappear as quickly.
No one wants a weak national defense you ignorant twit! We want one that reflects the actual threats we face today and not one designed simply to line the pockets of defense contractors.
As Dwight D Eisenhower stated;
"In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist."
I want a government that’s of the people, by the people and for the people; not one that's of the corporations, by the corporations and for the corporations.

But, to you Nazis, anyone who takes an oath to defend the Constitution is a domestic terrorist.
I do believe we'll have to fight about that one day. You Nazis are too ignorant to avoid starting a war against the American people.

The government exists to protect me.
The government says it needs a machine gun to protect me.

What am I supposed to do when someone from the government isn't there to protect me?
Or, what am I supposed to do when the government can't afford to protect me?
Or, what am I supposed to do when the government refuses to protect me?

The government said it needed a machine gun for my protection. Therefore a machine gun is needed for my protection. Therefore I need a machine gun.

If you don't think a machine gun is needed for my protection, why do you have them?

That would be a violation of the Constitution. You're not promoting an unconstitutional government take over the country, are you? You do know Obama took an oath to defend the Constitution from all enemies, both foreign and domestic, don't you? Aren't you afraid that it's you the NSA will elliminate, since you are promoting an unconstitutional government?

What EXACTLY is it in YOUR life that is worse now than five years ago?
I wasn't affected when the Democrats collapsed the economy. My complaint is the government has become lawless and unconstitutional, which puts my rights, and thus my liberty, in jeapordy.
I like living in the United States for a reason, and you Nazis intend to eliminate thar reason. I do believe you'll have to fight a war with the American people to achieve your ambition of eliminating the constitutional government and instituting a totalitarian dictatorship..

This is just another example of you shooting from the hip and not thinking through the insanity of your comment. This is almost as bad as your "Beards on Boston Red Sox is a Muslim conspiracy".
