I don't know why ANYONE would be surprised by this. THIS IS THE REALITY. This is what the "good ole boy" "patriots" really think about people of color. Yet, FAUX NEWS has embraced him and endorsed him. He is theirs. Doesn't matter that he claims to not want government subsidy yet allows his cattle to graze on public lands with out paying for it. That's no matter. Doesn't matter that he ostracizes a wholde race of people. Doesn't matte.r I hope our African American President resolves this situation an dsends military drones in this standoff to shwo just how powerful our government can be. This fool deserves some of the enhanced interrogation that our government has to offer.

Conservatives begin backing away after Cliven Bundy’s remarks disparaging ‘the Negro’

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.”

It is not at all racist to wonder if one's new master treats one less well than the old master.

Actually TippyBigot, when one phrases the question in such a manner that the question presupposes that a former slave's personal ambitions are completely irrelevant, such that it becomes a solely choice of picking cotton, or doing nothing, it certainly is racist, and ignorant.

You're right there with Mr. Bundy in both categories.

Plainly, the slave's personal ambitions are as completely irrelevant to his new master as they were to his former.

What's NOT getting much play is the comments he's made about the "Spanish speaking people". He seems to go against the usual conservative grain and sing some praise onto the "Spanish speaking people"....Shock and Awe!

Bundy Has A Surprisingly Nice Take On Undocumented Immigrants
http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/clive-b...

More video has emerged of Cliven Bundy's slavery remarks, and they now include a bit about "the Spanish people" -- by whom Bundy appears to mean undocumented Hispanic immigrants. But there's a twist: The Nevada rancher actually seems quite fond of them.

"Now let me talk about the Spanish people," Bundy said in a new video unearthed by New York magazine, right after he concluded his thoughts on "the Negro."

"I understand that they come over here against our Constitution and cross our borders," he says. "But they're here and they're people. I worked side-by-side a lot of them. Don't tell me they don't work, and don't tell me they don't pay taxes. And don't tell me they don't have better family structures than most of us white people."

"When you see those Mexican families, they're together. They picnic together. They're spending their time together," he said. "I'll tell you, in my way of thinking, they're awful nice people. We need to have those people join us and be with us."

The institutionalized racism, sexism, ethnocentrism, queeriness, and disability fixation of a powerful central government is a whole lot more dangerous than a few backwoods healthy white, straight, male gentile ranchers.

Make no mistake about that fact.

YOu say "gentile ranchers" as if they're some kind of harmless bunny rabbits. Make no mistake. THIS IS THE FACE OF THE TEA PARTY and they couldnt've gotten a better archetype if they'd tried. Right down to his being centralized in a place called "Bunkerville". Thank god we have power in our centralized governtment, otherwise we would not be able to enjoy things like civlil rights, workers rights, and food/drug protections and now (almost) universal healthcare.

Everybody knows that Bundy is questioning the sinfulness of the democrat plantation and its nationalizing of the black population.
If the progressives had not re-enslaved blacks via nationalization, then Bundy would not have been able to notice what he noticed.

In short, Bundy is no racist. He just sees what progressive democrats' government does to black people.

You really do sound like a racist or you are anti - American, when I woke up this morning I believe I was in America, where are you from? the middle east? We stand up for what we believe in here. If you don't like that then you need to go home, wherever that is. I wish I had read your posts earlier.

America has stood the test of time because of people like us, our blood has kept this nation free. Go fuk yourself.
