Whats interesting is how many Freepers ran around toeing the liberal line on this today. They are as much a fraud as Beck, Hannity and Reid.

The guy is an idiot. Who, in their right mind, brings this stuff up in front of a camera.

He is not “We the people.”

I knew the Slimes was faking the story. It was just too convenient for a sagebrush hero to suddenly be exposed as an inarticulate, racist hayseed.

ATTENTION!!! There NEEDS to be a PR CZAR in the Conservative movement that travels around the country to advise ranchers, plumbers, neophyte, congressional wannabes, etc. on what to say and do, and when to say and do it.

Some media weasel probably asked bunny about blacks, and he went off, because he is not media savvy, and although right on his ranch issue, 68% a dope and a doofus.

I nominate myself for this position. I will need to be funded. If someone can call the evil Koch brothers for me, that would be appreciated.

And these talk radio types need to be proactive, too. Beck interviewed him, Hannity interviewed him...how about during the commercial break one of them tells him NOT to discuss "negroes" or "the gays" ?

Cliven Bundy has to be very careful about what he says be cause the far left hate him and will do anything to destroy him. He should keep what he thinks to himself to avoid entrapment.

I’m not surprised. The left can only advance their cause through manipulation and lies. No exceptions.

I am certain he is being quoted incorrectly, and I am certain his premise is correct...he’s still extremely unwise to even bring it up. He needed to stay on point. He made the same fatal flaw of some of our candidates. Stay on message.

Cliven Buddy and family better get on this ASAP-—or else their cause is lost.

The Bundy’s should make a statement on Facebook or elsewhere-—asserting their support for reviewing unjust prison sentences for African-Americans.

Every night we see a story about a Black man unjustly incarcerated-—imprisoned his whole life b/c evidence was
manufactured....or something similar.

It was a common practice way back then that redneck cops would fix cases against Blacks who could not defend themselves.

Even the cranky Ben Jealous—NAACP head—is warming up to Republicans who understand the injustice of long prison sentences that weigh heavily against Black men.

But, if you tell a lie often enough, loudly enough and with enough conviction it becomes truth. Plus it helps if you can silence any other voices.

It is 100% clear that Cliven Bundy is not saying that blacks should be slaves picking cotton, but that the Federal government has created conditions for them so terrible, that their current situation may actually be worse. (If you are person of low intelligence, the fact that that is his point might be too hard for you to understand.)

Everyone--even the harshest critics of Bundy's comments--understands that this was his point. Most people, however (other than the relatively few people who are defending/agreeing with the comments) understand that the point is complete bullsh*t. Yes, government policies have done untold harm to the black family structure since at least the Great Society in the 60s. But, as bad as modern policies have been, they don't even begin to compare to the harm and horrors caused by slavery.

The full video along with his radio response has been available most of the day. It doesn’t make what Bundy said any better or any more politically palatable.

If people wish to bury their heads in the sand and think these comments are not absolute political poison even in the very best of context, I guess it’s just further proof that a whole lot of well meaning conservatives have zero political sense.

Talking about “the Negro” and the fact that they haven’t learned how to “pick cotton” and wondering aloud whether they might not have been better off as slaves is just not going to fly. With these comments, Bundy has destroyed himself and tarred a lot of politicians that stood, however tentatively, with him.

I don’t think Bundy is probably much of a hater. He’s from another generation and maybe just hasn’t updated his vocabulary. I can see he was thinking out loud and trying to point out how destructive the social welfare state is, but you just can’t go around saying things like this and think it won’t cause a firestorm that won’t end well for anyone who says it or is associated with it.

This thread reminds me of the Akin threads. Every political realist understood that his idiotic rape comments had destroyed any chance he had to win, yet so many people refused to see political reality. We got 6 more years of Claire because of that.

Any time you are standing in front of a dozen cameras and the words “I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro...” pass your lips, I suggest you immediately bite down on your tongue until your mouth is full of blood. It will hurt less in the long term.

This guy has lost any political support he has had, he lost any friend he has had in government, and anybody who flocks to his cause will now be smeared a racist. What on God’s green earth made this man think this was a good idea?

Watch the old John Wayne movie McClintock.

Because part of the story is about Wayne speaking at the request of the Indians to the government agent why they were in revolt and off the reservation

That being kept on the government doll, being just providen for on the rez was destroying their people and dignity.

I content Bundy was trying to say the same ...

Because it fits the context of Bundys situation...

The way to destroy a man and a people is take there ability or reason to support their-self.

It destroy your self respect...

A free man supports himself. .

A slave is provided for if he complies with his master wishes

Why else would something like this come up in the during the standoff? ..

It would fit in this context...or else it would be an absurd non sequitur at the time.
