Bundy Made Boomhaeur Sound Like Demosthenes and Yet, Big Government Still Sucks
Townhall.com ^ | 4-27-2014 | Doug Giles

Thank God Cliven Bundy gave the Left something to smack him over the head with, because that “Negro” comment took the spotlight off the brute force of big government and placed it on the ramblings of an inarticulate old man.

Man, I bet Harry Reid was so relieved that he thoroughly soaked his size-small adult diaper.

Yep, the stealing of old Cliven’s cattle; the paramilitary machinery levied against cowboys on horses; the sniper’s bouncing multiple .223 rounds off Bundy’s bull’s noggins via helicopters; the dumping of his slaughtered cattle into mass graves and the separation of his mama cows from their nursing calves by government goons was about the worse PR the BLM could ever dread to receive. Heck, even PETA was bitching about the Bureau of Land “Management.”

But in Obamaland, all that is second fiddle to an old, white cowboy saying “Negro, slave and pickin’ cotton” in the same sentence.

Heck, I’m so terrified of being labeled a racist that I don’t drink Negra Modello any longer and I refuse to order frijoles negros when I go out to eat in Little Havana. In addition, I refuse to read aloud MLK’s I Have A Dream speech because it uses the word “Negro” about a dozen times.

Somehow, I knew something like this would happen to Bundy. Not so much that he would make obtuse remarks, but I knew something was going to get him because, as right as he may have been, he was not good on TV. And not being good on TV is all the Left needs to take its foes down to Chinatown. No offense to the Chinese, of course.

In order to assist future foes of big government when their tanks roll into their back forty and they start shooting your sheep and tazing pregnant women in an overt attempt to bully you off your land, herewith are a few media tips once the reluctant media rolls up to film this egregious government overreach.

1. Say no to interviews with the NYT if your favorite song is “Home On The Range”.

2. Keep the conversation on cattle rustlin’.

3. Get spokesperson. Preferably, a black lesbian.

4. If you’re not getting yet what I’m getting at here with this list, it is: the media is not your friend.

5. Don’t say “Negro”.

6. Don’t say “Negro”.

7. Have friends that’ll punch you upside the head as soon as stupid words start coming out of your mouth.

8. And finally, please realize with the media nowadays it isn’t, “three strikes and you’re out”. It’s “one and you’re done.”

Just ask Todd Akin.

The guy is right. If you're not good on TV the government
can kill you and no one will care. In fact they will cheer.

TV parted with credibly years ago. Most capable of critical thought have zip confidence in that manipulated, dated medium.

I know it was rhetorical, but this guy is the father of the girl who was in the James O’Keefe videos that took down Acorn. That seemed like good work until it turned out that former Acorn employees are now the face of the IRS.

Doug Giles nails it as usual.

...the separation of his mama cows from their nursing calves by government goons...

I drive by a field of cows on my way to work every day and one of the things that gets me, almost to the point of tears if I'm in a sentimental mood, is what sweet natural mamas those mama cows are.

Oh wow, I didn’t realize that. I think her name is Hannah. I didn’t realize she was his daughter. He obviously raised her right.

IMO the credibility of electoral process in today’s America rates down there with TV.

The last two or so generations of pubic school kids were/are totally brainwashed. Manipulated orchestrated TV media, with a couple of generations of young people trained by liberals?...

What guy? The author? Anyway, what has that to do with his comments in this story?

I don't think what Bundy said is cause to vilify him, but knowing that he was giving an interview to a leftist org,, why would he say anything that could be construed as racist? If he had said the same things to FOX News, even many conservatives would still have excoriated him for saying anything about slavery being good for blacks and calling black people negroes.

The fact that he made comments at all about black people that could be published made me wonder about him. I sympathize with his cause, but he sure didn't do himself or conservatives any favors with his ill-considered words.

Soon the left wing statists will be bringing back one of their old standards, burning people at the stake, to deal with those who disagree with them.

The position of the MSM is clear: Cliven Bundy is more evil than Kermit Gosnell.

No country can long endure with so many people who inhabit the moral universe inhabited by the modern Left. They must be converted, expelled, or something else.

I love Giles sense of humor. He also nails the rules for the right in this political climate.

Yeah but he is a demoncrat. I bet there will be very little mention of that. Somehow he will be tied to the right even though he is a leftie.

Sounds to me like he wasn’t really aware there was a “journalist” present when the remarks were made initially. The account I read said that he told the press initially he would “be there every day to answer questions”. After several days the press got bored and this day they were gone. The “journalist” in question was THE ONLY one. Supporters began discussing things and she “lead the witness” to Watts and race. Not to let Bundy off, but did he know she was a journalist when he agreed to respond to her? What I read suggests that she did not. Maybe she did and it was clear to him but the account I read left me asking if that was the case.
In my mind, sort of like a court of law, I suppose, splashing what was discussed all over the front page of the NY Slimes is pretty dishonest if the man in question was not aware the questioner was a “journalist”. Sort of like taping a conversation. If the one talking isn’t aware of the tape it is going to be hard to bring it in as evidence and in some states it will actually get YOU prosecuted.
In fact, the whole thing reeks of “ambush” “journalism” IMHO and has from the start and the more I learn about it the more convinced I am.

Negro
Negro
Negro

Negro is a word that encompasses the totality of many subcultures that comprise what is also known as the black community. Community is a conglomerate word encompassing various sub cultures.

To discuss, praise or criticize individual subcultures is not racist.

And that, my FRiend, is the most compelling reason for abolishing government education.

If all they did was leave your kids ignorant for an incredible sum of money (used primarily for the benefit(s) of the teachers), schools would be tolerable.

But NO! Liberals must meddle.
