This thing is not about what Bundy says that might sound old fashioned.

It’s about the tyrannical behavior of our government.

Careful there Cliven. The “powers” don’t like it when you speak the truth.

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 weight heavily against Black men.

I am not sure that if Fredrick Douglas were alive today he would not have have made a similar statement.

So, let me see if I’ve got this right.

It was ok for the government to send a tactical squad consisting of almost 200 heavily armed men with machine guns, sniper rifles, grenades, and armored vehicles to steal his cattle, destroy his fences and water storage, murder a number of his bulls and cows, threaten to shoot and basically terrorize his family, neighbors and friends, all because the NY Slimes was able to cleverly edit rancher Clive Bundy’s remarks to make him sound like a “racist”.

Have I got that right?

I(for one)don’t believe Mr. Bundy’s remarks stemmed from”Racism”!I think he was(in an awkward fashion)describing the plight of Black Americans who have been made”Slaves”of Government Programs!!!!!!!!!!!

It’s not ok with me. Or with anyone else on the right side of this.

The left is trying to caricature their opponents so they can then tear them down.

It must get real old for these leftists, propping up an ideology that cannot exist without lies and manipulation.

I had to turn Hannity off today. He was going on about how “repulsive” the quote was. Either he wan’t given the full quote or is coward that can’t take a stand. (I think the latter).

Just substitute the word “blacks” with “anybody” and the meaning is clear.

It’s definitely true that blacks were treated unfairly in certain circumstances, and I think that would be very difficult to get away with now. As for the drug sentencing, I think in many cases, you’d find that the black defendants were involved with violent gangs or had prior felonies themselves, whereas the white cocaine sniffers were probably insulated from the actual violence...hence the Feds’ pursuit of the white suppliers, such as the Mafia.

That said, since I have lived in the South, I have also realized that a lot of the time the cops were actually pretty lenient with black offenders. It was condescending and probably wrong, but they considered them very prone to crimes like the dresser-top burglary (walking into a home and sweeping the change or a watch off the dresser top) or other low-level crimes, and these things were often arranged without even going to court (the thief would give back what he had stolen and apologize).

The problem in that case was paternalism, and the reality is that the welfare state only increased it. I have an elderly black neighbor who is 96 years old...and she only stopped working (as a cook) 3 years ago! She started working when she was 12.

She had only a couple of children and then her husband died, and they were more or less ok. Probably the children got some kind of aid, but once the LBJ welfare state took over, everything went down the drain. I think most of her grandchildren ended up in jail. Ironically, the only one who did well and started his own business was doing just fine...until Obama became president and killed the building industry.

I think Bundy was simply trying to convey the point that being captives of the Federal Government is not a good situation for anybody. He’s not a politician or a good speaker, and he expressed it from his background. But I don’t really think he was anti-black, just anti-big government. If he’d been more savvy, he would have expressed it differently, because unfortunately, I think he’s shot himself in the foot.

Look, Bundy isn’t some wonky Washington insider, or insider elitist or a talk show host with a mic that reaches millions. He’s just an old guy who badly expressed – believe it or not – empathy with minorities. Yes, if you actually take the time to listen to what he said, in context, he’s anything but “pro-slavery,” and to say so is idiotic and ignorant in the extreme. Political correctness is nothing more than censorship. Even if what the man said was racist – is that a reason to destroy him? I thought we could express ourselves in this country. Only if you toe the liberal line, I guess. Oh yeah, the knives really come out for this old guy who should probably not have pontificated on the subject. But he did, and badly. The race-baiting media whores in this country make me sick. Remember Marge Schott? She was CEO of the Cincinnati Reds. She often said things that actually WERE racist, and these same media creeps thought it was okay to take her personally property away from her because they didn’t like what she said. American media = destroyers, plain and simple. Have fun destroying this old man, sleeze merchants.

I attended the Bundy press conference today - 02-24-2014. There were about 25 people in attendance and a half-dozen media-types from CH 5, 8 and 13 - maybe even some paparazzi.

Bundy talked a bit about where all the BLM guns had gone and then had a Q&A session. On cue, one reporter asked him about the "Negro comment" and, IMO, Bundy walked right into it.

He talked about how he has worked with Negroes and had no problem, but he happened to be in Los Angeles during the Watts riots and wondered why those people were burning down their own neighborhood. He reiterated his previous "black people on the porch doing nothing, etc." comment. I winced, because I felt he was just giving the media more red meat.

While his comments were all true, and I took his earlier one to be a comment on the failure of the Great Society, the media and their puppets in the comments section were all over him, and will be again.

I wish he would have said something along the line of "That tremor you might have felt was the liberals falling to their knees, giving thanks that I used an 'N-word'. Not THE 'N-word' but close enough. The 'he owes the govt money' mantra was wearing a little thin, but now they have a new diversion, keeping the focus away from the badge-heavy tactics of a over-militarized agency."

I gonna hate to see how the media spin this one.

Here's a pic, where they set up a new podium in a small hollow away from the wind and gave him a mike this time so he could be heard. (The audience was up where I was standing or over to the sides. The guys on each side of him are armed bodyguards.)

Of course, the review does not in any way apply to incarcerated Black men w/ a history of violence outside or inside prison.....and especially NOT drug dealers.

We're talking solely about innocent Black men w/ no history of violence who have immaculate prison records.

The paper trail is there. ...let's use it for the right purposes. Violent offenders, drug dealers need not apply.

Don't bother, Hannity threw Bundy under the bus today in order to save face and claim that he is non-biased.

The accusation has been made and the damage has been done.........

Using the same twisted logic, Justice Clarence Thomas was indeed a pervert and sexual harasser........

“Bundy does not have a business where he is responsible for any black person.”

NO business is responsible for a single black person. Black persons as well as white and yellow and red and brown persons are responsible for themselves.

That is a waste of time and effort. Every single talking head on Fox News has thrown Cliven Bundy under the bus and their own brains in the trash can.

Charles Krauthammer made a complete fool of himself in particular. On Special Report he condemned "Bundy's words" and in the next hour on On The Record he made the exact same points that Bundy did while discussing the subject of the SCOTUS decision on Affirmative Action. No substantive difference whatsoever but he said it in a Harvard dialect.

I believe in smaller government, I love my guns, I hate Obama, I hate liberals, I’m anti abortion, pro America, God is awesome, pay your bills, everyone should pay their taxes, taxes are way too high, pro school vouchers, guard the borders, defend our country, it’s our duty to help the poor and downtrodden, however welfare is bleeding our country dry, and I looooove apple pie... And a bunch of other things that similarly represent my conservative values! My values do not represent the defense of a rancher who has essentially been using land and not paying for it under agreement he signed! While I believe our government is bloated and power hungry, I do not believe these agents were sent to kill anyone, they were there to evict someone off of land that he has refused to pay for, and refused to move his cows off of! Ask anyone in law enforcement if they ever had to remove or evict people from premises before! Just because the cops shows up with a gun... Does not mean he is going in with excessive force, or going to shoot anyone! They will also tell you that if it’s known that the person being evicted, has issued threats of force on the cops if they try to remove him... They will tell you that law enforcement will show up with overwhelming back up as a show of “shock and awe” this extra back up is to send a clear message to the person not to try anything! Understand? Bundy has a ranch that has 140? 160 acres? He also has over 1000 head of cattle, this means I’d guess he had 15? maybe 20 ranch hands willing to help their boss defend the land he’s squatting on, his entire family lives on the ranch as well, then he had militia that joined the fight and neighbors, friends, and people that just wanted to shoot their guns if provoked by the government regardless of the cause... So let’s say, in the beginning he only had 130 or so people by his side ready to engage in a “range war” that bundy threatened if enforcement tried to evict him, vs the 200 BLM agents and FBI... I’m sure they will tell you that with the threat of this magnitude with 130 people ready to fight... Enforcement is gonna show up with plenty of back up to show that shock and awe I mentioned, with 160 acres, you might even bring in a helicopter so you can have an aerial view of the land so you can direct your agents on the ground for their safety! This whole excessive force thing is really lame guys, and really makes me question your conservative values when you bad mouth the agents, but not questioning a rancher for not paying his million dollar fee/tax! You guys defending bundy, is creating a precedent! It’s going to be really hard to point out John Kerry not paying that $400,000 tax on his boat, or Sharpton not paying his taxes, or any future argument closely related when it come to working the system! Y’all really need to pull it together guys! You’re risking all our conservative values so you can be right about something, you know is not! There will be a day when we will have an opportunity to fight the government for a just cause, but when that fight comes? I want to hold my head up and fight/live/die proudly! How bout you?

“An awkwardly made point” - exactly - so much of the “outrage” being shown by conservatives like Krauthammer and Kelly, aside from the point that it’s a chance to demonstrate just how oh so compassionate and fair they are, seems to be about how inarticulate and inelegant he is - not nearly as well-spoken and polished as those in DC and NY - but what can we expect from a cowboy in Nevada?....
