Gee What A Surprise

I’m shocked, shocked to find out that deadbeat rancher Cliven Bundy is a racist.

Republican politicians began backtracking on their support of Nevada anti-government rancher Cliven Bundy after the New York Times caught Bundy making racially-inflammatory remarks blaming African-Americans for willingly submiting to dependency on federal assistance.

“They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton,” Bundy was quoted as saying to a group of supporters last Saturday. “And I’ve often wondered, are they better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things, or are they better off under government subsidy? They didn’t get no more freedom. They got less freedom.”

Bundy’s statements about “the Negro,” published on Wednesday, were made during his daily speech to supporters outside Bunkerville, Nevada, where a crowd gathered to support him in defiance of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) during an attempted round up of his cattle. The confrontation was the result of Bundy’s refusal to pay grazing fees on federally-owned land for more than 20 years, in spite of multiple court rulings against him. Bundy has stated on several occasions that he does not recognize the existence of the federal government.

Let’s see if his good friends over at Fox News now refer to him as “colorful.”

HT to John Cole.

5 barks and woofs on “Gee What A Surprise

  1. So grazing your cattle on isn’t a subsidy? He’s also a liar. His family history does not match what he says it is.

    • “Government land” is an oxymoron to these volk. The National Park system is just behind EPA in their crosshairs. The idea that land could be [gasp] public and accessible to anyone for free (or at least for a minimal charge) offends their sense of Entrepreneurism and Free Enterprise. So he’s not getting a subsidy – he’s just raising his herd on land that nobody who matters has told him he can’t have.

  2. This rant caused Rand Paul some discomfort. Took his office some time to respond and peddle backwards in his support of Bundy, The Freeloader and Racist.

  3. I’m going to comment on this a la Jeff Foxworthy: If you find yourself wondering whether blacks were better off under slavery, you just MIGHT be a racist.
