Unedited Tape of Bundy Emerges, Sheds Light on 'Racist' Remarks
Truth Revolt ^ | April 25, 2014 | Rip Curl

Posted on 04/25/2014 9:46:24 PM PDT by This Just In

A new, unedited version of comments by Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy has emerged, and it sheds some light on the context of his remarks, universally condemned on Thursday as horrifically racist.

The 67-year-old Bundy, battling the U.S. government after federal agents stormed his ranch to confiscate his cattle in a dispute over grazing fees, said far more than what appeared in the New York Times and most other news accounts. While his grammar is pretty bad -- and his use of "negro" and "colored" considered politically incorrect (although they were both once preferred terms chosen by blacks) -- he actually was making a larger point, not simply deriding blacks.

It has always been of great curiosity to me why the Democrat Party has turned out to be the 95 % Block Vote Choice of those previously freed from Slavery.

The Democrat Party supported the Southern Plantation System, and the KKK, but now have generations of the descendants of these same slaves on the Federal Welfare Plantation System, with headquarters at 1600 Plantation Avenue, District of Corruption, with a Black Man currently running it!

Have the decisions made by Republican Presidents Lincoln and Eisenhower had such a short historical imprint on our current policy towards each other in the body politic?

The democrat party still mocks blacks and other minorities in their exploitation of their votes won by deeming them incompetent, less able, intellectually inferior and incapable of keeping up with others in education of employment without government assistance.

Tom Wolfe wrote a short story showing how the MSM makes white black and black white: ‘Ambush At Fort Bragg’.

It’s like this: the suspect says, “You’re saying I killed the guy?” but it’s transcribed as, “I killed the guy.”

Anytime I see a NYT story, I initially ignore it. If I'm interested in the article, I check out other sources before forming an opinion. We have been misinformed, disinformed, lied to and propagandized by the media, we should learn by now.

Likewise both President Calvin Coolidge and President Ronald Reagan expanded opportunities for all Americans. The policies of both of these fine men led to years of unprecedented opportunities, with income growth in the every community and demographic. Why a large number of blacks have so little regard for Coolidge, or more notably, Reagan is utterly incomprehensible.

This is a subject that the PC Police do NOT want to be discussed, but IMHO, it is time - - - time for a change.

Krauthammer had a great observation on FOX this week: “Why do the Liberals send inner city Black kids to Berkley where the Black kids have a 54 % flunk out rate and the White kids have only a 14 % flunk out rate?

Why not send inner city kids to good Black schools, like Morehouse, so can they have a much better chance of a good education AND becoming more successful in our Society?” [Note: as best as I can remember what Charles said].

IMHO, we should learn from the past, hope for the best, and do the best we can with what is left of America. (Pun not intended).

Correcting a problem or improving a situation usually requires the identifying of what can be changed and what is not ideal. But any comment or observation about how the black underclass lives in the US, which is much like the white underclass in the UK (see Theodore Dalrymple’s LIFE AT THE BOTTOM) is dismissed as irrelevant and motivated by racial animus.

Compare the media uproar over Bundy’s “racist” comments to the silence of the Corrupt Liberal Media over Jamie Foxx gloating on Saturday Night Live about killing “ALL the white people. How great is that? How black is that?”

Or Eric Holder’s open statement made before the Senate Judiciary Committee in June, 2009, that federal hate crime laws do NOT cover racially motivated violence against white Americans because whites are not an Holder approved “protected group”.

And Holders exempting black on white racist violence from federal law and Jamie Foxx’s glorifying and inciting it is especially egregious considering that thousands of whites are victims of racially motivated attacks by blacks every year in the USA.

Bundy is an elderly white blue collar rancher who is held to a much higher standard than a racist black Attorney General who is corrupting the law.

There is plenty of racism evident in this story and it is the same old racist DOUBLE STANDARD that is SOP of “liberals” and their toadies in the Corrupt Liberal Media.

According to the leftists, abortion policies that have resulted in 6 out of 10 black pregnancies ending in abortion are not racist, but comparing this situation unfavorably to slavery is.

OF COURSE this was a cleverly edited “Hit Job” by the NYT.

However, what Hannity, Beck, and many others fail to recognize is that Our Constitutional Rights DO NOT depend upon our personal prejudices, clumsy speech patterns, or even our IQ.

The unedited interview says things that we say here on FR all the time, about how the Welfare State has destroyed the Black Family in America.

Mr. Bundy is just not quite as eloquent as the average FReeper in expressing these truths.

I was really stunned at the knee-jerk reaction of many FReepers when this first came out. Epithets such as “Idiot”, “Troll” and “Racist” streamed onto the threads about Mr. Bundy from people I usually respect. Mostly these were from people who felt that Bundy had “Hurt Our Cause”.

So, does that mean when a person is unlovely, maybe a little ignorant, or even railroaded by the liberal press, that we should no longer defend his Constitutional Rights?

FR has a Proud tradition of uncovering Lamestream Media Hoaxes that are meant to discredit us. Rathergate, Green-Helmet-Guy, Flat Fatima, The GI Joe Hostage Doll, and the Edited Zimmerman Tapes are all examples of how the bright and discerning minds of FR have been at the forefront of speaking the Truth and uncovering the lies and hoaxes.

Liberal demons have played the race card so much they have worn the tits off the Queen. Conveniently their new Queen, Hillary has no tits so that won’t matter. They will just add the misogynist card. I noticed that misogynist “programming” long ago in television which I rarely watch (sickening) and it is hard to miss. I even notice it when my husband doesn’t. The very typical situation is either a superior female or a superior black and a dumb white guy they have to help because he is fat, lazy or stupid. I have no loyalty to my gender, they can be real sows (woman pigs) when it comes to denigrating white men.

This dumb white guy loves your “Liberal Demons” comment. Slightly overweight and aging I only look forward to a few things on TV. One show that really is interesting is “Blue Bloods” with Tom Selleck. Don’t know how that happened on SeeBS, however it is quite enjoyable. Course, last night the daughter did indeed get the upper hand.

we have been misinformed...

This whole Bundy situation is fascinating. The DC politicians, even those who pretend to be constitutional conservatives, did not have the instincts to side with Bundy and states rights and individual rights to use what were once called public grazing lands. Then after the standoff, the light comes on and they realize that a majority of people don't like federal over-reach and the sneaky profitiable for politicians deals to use rhe land for their schemes. But you know what? They're all in the DC smog, so they're probably looking for how to get on that gravy train.

So those pols appealing to conservatives sent out a message "send us some cover" so they could drop support of Bundy and the issue. In comes the NYT editing Bundy and changing a message of "today people are enslaved by the federal government" to "Bundy's a crazed racist". Immediately, the fake conservatives had an excuse to drop the cause, and they thought still keep their supporters.

It didn't work. We now know who the worst of the fakes are. People like Rand Paul, Shawn Hannity and Glenn Beck were so quick to condemn that they had to know this was coming. We can't trust them ever again. And as far as the rest of the crowd? Did ANY of the pols we support as conservatives have the instincts to support Bundy's questioning of the over-reach of the federal government?

It's all so rigged. The only silver lining is politicians and talkers who supposedly support constitutional conservative have been exposed.

Just as many FReepers did.

We still have a couple floating around with the "Bundy's a racist 'cause he wonders if blacks would be better off a slaves pickin' cotton!"

They just don't get he was asking if they are really any better off today.

It's almost as if as soon as they hear the word "RACIST!", their brains stop working.

Caught part of Ted Baxter last night. He apparently didn't watch the video interview with Bundy and missed the whole point that Bundy was trying to make about blacks being suppressed by today's government. And, in some ways, may be worse than slavery. If one watched the video, it was apparent that Bundy, after his “negro” comments, went on to talk about Latinos, praising them. BOR suggested that these complimentary (Latino)remarks came days later, possibly because of taking heat for his “negro’ remarks. What an idiot!

I've noticed it too, and come the conclusion that's exactly why it's called 'programming'. It's creates an inherent rejection of the white male.

When will they castigate Leonard Cohen for “Old Black Joe’s still pickin’ cotton”?

Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows that the war is over
Everybody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
That’s how it goes
Everybody knows

Everybody knows that the boat is leaking
Everybody knows that the captain lied
Everybody got this broken feeling
Like their father or their dog just died

Everybody talking to their pockets
Everybody wants a box of chocolates
And a long stem rose
Everybody knows

Everybody knows that you love me baby
Everybody knows that you really do
Everybody knows that you’ve been faithful
Ah give or take a night or two
Everybody knows you’ve been discreet
But there were so many people you just had to meet
Without your clothes
And everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
That’s how it goes
Everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
That’s how it goes
Everybody knows

And everybody knows that it’s now or never
Everybody knows that it’s me or you
And everybody knows that you live forever
Ah when you’ve done a line or two
Everybody knows the deal is rotten
Old Black Joe’s still pickin’ cotton
For your ribbons and bows
And everybody knows

And everybody knows that the Plague is coming
Everybody knows that it’s moving fast
Everybody knows that the naked man and woman
Are just a shining artifact of the past
Everybody knows the scene is dead
But there’s gonna be a meter on your bed
That will disclose
What everybody knows

And everybody knows that you’re in trouble
Everybody knows what you’ve been through
From the bloody cross on top of Calvary
To the beach of Malibu
Everybody knows it’s coming apart
Take one last look at this Sacred Heart
Before it blows
And everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
That’s how it goes
Everybody knows

Oh everybody knows, everybody knows
That’s how it goes
Everybody knows

Everybody knows

As a former member of the culture, here is an important thing to mention:

The Mormon church treated blacks as “Unworthy” to hold the higher priesthood until a convenient revelation happened in 1978. Poor Clive Bundy lives in certain isolation and in some ways the halo affect of such remains in his psyche and word usage.

I know this as we live among them now and we hear language and usage that is in some ways over fifty years old.
