“What if Bundy Ranch Were Owned by a Bunch of Black People?”
Legal Insurrection ^ | 04-19-2014 | William A. Jacobson

Posted on 04/19/2014 9:09:20 PM PDT by Kevin in California

I don’t think we’ve written here yet about the Bundy Ranch standoff, mostly because we didn’t have enough information about the situation to make a judgment about what really was going on. And I didn’t have enough time to figure it all out.

Was it, as some portrayed, a heroic struggle against an overbearing and overly aggressive federal government (in which case we might have taken the side of the underdog) or, as Harry Reid has portrayed it, a bunch of domestic terrorists looking for a shoot up? Or somewhere in between?

Which gets me to the title of this post, “What if Bundy Ranch Were Owned by a Bunch of Black People?”

If it were owned by a bunch a black people, I can ensure you there would be at least two shakedown fools there. Their initials are AS and JJ.

If Cliven Bundy were a lib who was being protected by the Occupy movement Harry Reid and the rest of the libs would be making sure that land stayed with Bundy..oh and if the same cows were being slaughtered, PETA would be shouting from the rooftops..now you don’t hear a whisper from them

Wouldn’t be hearing about any of these kind of problems! This is called DOJ preferential justification. It’s the law damn it, and we can enforce (or not enforce) what we want to!

They would have sold it and fought each other over dividing up the money?

Is the modern day equivalent of the KKK the Bureau of Feudal Land Management?

If so, then Feudal Lord Reid would then be “The Grand Dragon of the BFLM.”

Feudal Lord Reid’s Rustlers are hired guns, who are furious but not fast, which also applies to their Millionaire Leader, Feudal Lord Reid.

With the KKK and now the BFLM, ethics be damned, as abject fear is the main goal of these Medieval Outlaw Gangs.

“Ethics” will be justified later by Liberals who will write the ‘revised” PC History of these times, past and present; of powerful men with outlaw hatred toward free people in America, Black or White, poor or rich.

The Jackboot Heel of Tyranny is now upon us, again !

FORWARD!

It wouldn’t make any difference to me if the Bundy family was black. So long as everything else is the same, who cares what skin color they have? It’s the left that wants to make everything about race—not conservatives.

Cliven Bundy most assuredly is a native American as am I. We were both born in these United States, ergo are indeed native Americans. PC lingo means nothing to me.

I may be overly optimistic, but I don’t think they can. Reality — and age — is beginning to intrude on the ‘60s and ‘70s “activists” now in power.

They can only hold onto their ganja-fueled utopia for so long. Reality is a VERY cruel thing.

The Bundy family are members of the cult of Mormonism. Regardless of their heretical religious beliefs, true American Patriots — Christian and Jewish alike — are resolutely standing up for the Cliven Bundy and the whole family. While their religion is wrong, the Constitution is fully on their side. Core principles trump religion, race and national origin.

While the BLM was rounding up cattle for a $1 million grazing fee debt, Obama was the guest of honor at an Al Sharpton event, who owes $1.9 million in back taxes. FUBO.

Honestly, I really don't. My comment was not in any way sarcastic or mean-spirited. I totally support the Bundys as they courageously stand up to tyranny. That said, Mormonism is flat out wrong. Indeed Mormons are often fine people but Mormonism is not at all fine as the boss has explained:

Free Republic is a pro-God site. The one and only true Judeo-Christian God as taught to us by KJV with no additional editing or books of fiction. I have zero faith in Joseph Smith or his so-called Mormon religion and do not want it taught on FR as gospel. Joe Smith was a false prophet and his book is false gospel (look it up in KJV).

Nice try. But we forget the Operation Move atrocity in Philadelphia 30 years ago. They might not have seemed like sympathetic folks to most FReepers, but they were American citizens who had their block bombed by the US Gov. Definitely a precursor to Ruby Ridge / Waco that we often forget about.

Not necessarily. Approx one third of the Waco massacre deaths were black people. The media is "hip" to what the government wants the low info voter to know.

“What if Bundy Ranch Were Owned by a Bunch of Black People?”.....

First of all, it would never happen. There’s a whole lotta WORK connected to ranching and we all know where that would go.

Then again, black people DID have experience “working” back when they were “slaves”. (That is not racist, only fact)

Why would we support those who don’t support us? Most black writers, black apologist and most blacks themselves take the position of what would whites do for us? It’s always a one way street with them. How many blacks came out in support of the Bundy’s?

Don’t even think that.. the Imaginary Victims Industry will pester Congress to get recompense on the basis that ranches are owned by black people and that one certainly could have been one.. so pay up, America!
