I’ll stay hitched.

You don’t run out on some one for speaking their mind. You fight for his right to say it, even if you disagree with it.

It’s called “Honor”.

And all he did was make an observation based on what he saw over the course of his own life.

The media and the BLM would LOVE for folks to abandon him, because as we ALL know, being a perceived “Racist” is even worse than murder or child molestation.

"Staying hitched to the Cliven train just puts everyone at risk for his next mouthful of stupid." I understand your point, but with all due respect you've fallen for precisely the distraction that the liberal media hoped to create. Even if Mr. Bundy were the Grand Wizard of the KKK (or Robert Byrd, but I'm being redundant), it wouldn't change the real issue, governmental tyranny, one iota. The two are not related in any way.

It is really disappointing to see so many on the Right bow before the masters of political correctness. This is the same warped thinking that presumes that Republicans must give in on Obamacare and illegal immigration if they want to win. The truth is precisely the opposite - they (and we) MUST stand for what is right regardless if doing so might result in someone calling us a name. Surely we're made of sterner stuff than that.

“The word “black” is not capitalized unless it is the first word of a sentence or is someones name, It’s a color, an adjective. Many liberal writers capitalize it, please don’t fall into their liberal grammatical garbage.”

Good point! and also, black is not a race, it is a color. The race is Negro, adjective form is Negroid.

“I capitalize the word Black when referring to the people as opposed to the color black. I have no idea why I do that, just my own way to differentiate. I am certainly not a liberal but will continue to capitalize it. Sorry it offends you, but I think we have more important things to worry about.”

Am just curious - do you capitalize the word white, when referring to white people?

racially inflammatory comments???

Plain spoken Rancher Bundy merely used the word Negro as in NAACP or United Negro College Fund, (history). Negro is a perfectly good word as is Colored...these words are not mean or belittling they describe in plain English a fact. Another fact or truism:"Remember you don't have to be on a southern plantation to be a slave, if you are dependent on government entitlements you just have a different slave owner."

I submit to both of you for historical context this observation. Negro is not a race and was not considered a race at the turn of the century in the 1900's. Negro and the use of the word as such is a pretty modern evolution.

Although in considering both your statements I do find it amazing to ponder how the Left has successfully removed from the American Negro his historical heritage as a Bushman or Bantu. Even the use of the term African-American, as favored today, is inaccurate and reflects the loss of heritage.

Professor Jerome Dowd, a Southern white man, declares that "to speak of all negroes in Africa as one race having common characteristics, is as misleading and is as unscientific as if we should consider all Europeans and Americans as of one race and attribute to all of them the same traits."

It is pathetic to see the failure of the left to understand or acknowledge the truth about race relations in this country. They still push the idea that the South is Republican because the South is racist and the GOP is racist. Anyone who has seen the truth knows that any black person who conducts himself with respect for others regardless of race will 999 times out of 1000 be met with the same response from the so-called “rednecks” in the South. I liked the response from Lloyd Marcus once when asked if he did not experience fear as a black man at a Tea Party gathering. I believe his answer was something like, “I was a little afraid I might get hugged to death.” Lloyd Marcus knows the truth, the liberals only project their own distorted psyche onto others.

Cliven Bundy is not a smooth talking politician...he is a hard working man of almost 70 years. His vernacular is of no importance to me...I understood what he meant having been raised in the south. “Negro” was a term that was coined by themselves a long time ago (NAACP) and it continues to change. I don’t expect the man to be eloquent...he says what he means and means what he says. I believe he was “trying” to articulate the message of “indentured servitude”, particularly being a layabout sucking on the government teet instead of doing a hard day’s labor.

He can be my spokesman any time.

I know exactly what Cliven meant. No, I would not want him to be my spokesman, but my friend, absolutely! Bob
