Cliven Bundy talks about "the Negro."


Here's the extreme right's hero talking about his opinion of "the Negro."   You go Cliven.  Let the world see what a fascinating mind you have:



Bundy: "I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro…


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.” 





There's so much stupidity and ignorance in that Cliven Bundy statement that it is difficult to believe anyone could utter such imbecilic claptrap. But there it is. He's the extreme Right's hero, in all his miserable bigotry and idiocy.






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.

Whay am I not surprised to read this about Bundy?

Dave Miller said...

Shaw, he was tricked by the lamestream media in that interview. It's just like the NYT to do that to such a patriot. It's as bad as asking Sarah Palin those trick questions. And that Mixhelle Obama woman, wow, what a communist White House....

I'm waiting to see a variation on this later today at a few conservative sights...

Titan-ur-Anus said...

Mr. Bundy's flatulence may not impress but it by golly does make him stinky.

Lol, give it enough time and sooner or later and their racist feelings come out...

Tien Le said...

Why are you giving this horrible human a megaphone on your site?

okjimm said...

HA...he doesn't believe in the federal government??? Well I don't believe in him....the only Bundy I believe in is Al Bundy...at least he was 'Married with Children' Nevada Bundy just gotza bunch of roaming doggies.

Spam Hunting said...

How long before we hear ol'Cliven tell us some of his best friends are Negroes?

A. Reader said...

yeah, when Obummer said if he had a son he'd look like Treyvon Martin, and when he said some white folks don't like him beause of his color and some black folks like him just because of his color, the righties screamed RACIST!

Now a real racist expresses his most ignorant ideas about how Negroes were better off being slaves we hear nothing fromthe right. crickets.

Infidel753 said...

We already know from Phil the Duck that The Negro was better off in the Jim Crow days, so of course under slavery they must have been better off still.

Okjimm: I think he's more like Ted Bundy.

When the feds finally descend on him to straighten this situation out, my guess is he'll have a lot fewer supporters on site, unless the KKK picks up the slack. Even most teabaggers must realize he's radioactive now.

Meanwhile, New Hampshire State Lawmaker Will Infantine (R) says women don’t deserve equal pay because they are lazier than men. Infantine. Infantile. Or a sexist pig!

Nope, you can’t make up this stuff, and you would think the GOP would distance itself from crazy people and their crazy talk. Ohhh, nohhh! This is the so-called party “base.”

“Base” as in lacking proper social values or moral principles.

Dave Miller said...

A. Reader... many conservatives have indeed slammed Bundy, including Rand Paul, Nev Senator Dean Heller, the Chairman of the GOP, Joe Scarborough and even Glenn Beck, who had been critical of Bundy even before his stupid remarks.

However talker Dana Loesch essentiall mimicked my satirical remarks saying the NYT baited Bundy...

I'll be as partisan as anyone when it is warranted, but it this case, those normally quiet crickets finally woke up.

At least now we know what it takes to get the GOP to condemn something one of theirs says...

Well what is your answer? Are negroes better off under government subsidies?

Rheticus said...

Well tell us, are farmers and oil companies better off under government subsidies?

NEW YORK -- Fox News host Sean Hannity said Thursday that Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy's racist remarks are “beyond repugnant” and “beyond despicable.”

For the past several weeks, the conservative Fox News network has given a major platform to Bundy. Some of its hosts and guests have portrayed his standoff with authorities over not paying fees to use federal land as a populist fight against an encroaching government. In a two-week stretch this month, Fox News devoted four hours and 40 minutes to Bundy’s story during late afternoon and evening broadcasts, according to progressive watchdog Media Matters.


Good for Hannity. But the question is why couldn't he figure this out before Bundy made a colossal ass of himself? Don't these people have any judgement?

Infidel753 said...

Troll: Well what is your answer? Are negroes better off under government subsidies?

That's not the point. Bundy speculated that black people were better off under slavery, and stated as a fact that they have less freedom now than under slavery. If you think this is within the realm of rational debate, you are deranged.

I can only resort to my favorite quote from Lincoln: "Whenever I hear anyone arguing for slavery, I feel a strong impulse to see it tried on him personally."

Bundy's statement is even more offensive because he generalizes about "the negro", a population of about 45 million varied individuals, based on a few people he saw in a run-down area of Las Vegas -- and in any case, even for those few people, he knows nothing about their circumstances or how they got into the situation they're in.

Sensible people know all this without needing it stated, of course, but you clearly don't fall into that category.

At least they are providing essential services and goods. Look someone says something offensive and the entire outrage machine is out in full force. I wonder how much dinero Harry Reid is set to make on this land deal. Speaking outrage who said Obama is a light skinned black man with no negro dialect.Lucky for him he is a democrat. To me that is extremely racist. He was basically saying we wouldn't want him if he sounded too
black

Infidel753 said...

Bundy continues to spew more racist nonsense. The man is not only a racist but utterly clueless and probably a narcissist as well.

Shaw, I see none of your usual trolls are commenting on this one. Too radioactive even for them?

okjimm said...

okee dokee..I have to confess, and this may be a surprise to some, perhaps because it was a huge surprise to me...lemmee tell you...see, I used to be, wait for it, a Negroe. It wasn't real hard, see, to change from white ot black. Nun in grade school taught me..and we all know Nuns do black and white real good. I can't tell how it is done, cause I promised I wouldn't..and it would really really bloat up the welfare rolls and stuff ...but gosh it was fun, just hanging around the gas station drinking Dr.Pepper and munching moon pies...oops, that was when I was a Cracker. Well anyways, I got tired of being a Negroe, that jazz music and alla dem spare ribs and shit....so I switched back to being a White Jack Pine Savage up in da hinterlands of Wisconsin. Became a mosquito hunter. Good pay.

anyways...some of my best friends are white now and it is working out. Thank you very much. PS. Don't ever tell Oprah...she still thinks I'm a Negroe.

I am not aware of an instance when they all bailed this quickly.
In the end the fringe right does have a sense of shame (or public relations).

Now they can't put the crazy back in the bottle.

Yes only thing is the only people who
Wouldn't have wanted Obama according to what Reid said would be democrat voters because republican voters weren't voting for him anyway not because if his color but because he's a democrat.

No one said the republicans cannot cut their own throat. With the left leaning MSM, every right wing kook will receive 24 hour coverage until another right wing kook comes along.

You can have Hillary admit she screwed up bengazi, an official at the irs takes the 5th and then gets promoted, sharpton as a snitch against the mafia and it is mentioned on the 4 am news and gone.

okjimm said...

oCTO..iNK MAKES YOU UPPITY? time to switch back to a good old number 2 pencil.

I just have to laugh when I read junk about this Bundy dude. We as a nation are at a cusp..we are trying to reinvent America..nver before have we been so connected through multiple channels mass media, phones, computers..that we literaly get information,news at lighting speed. Two hundered years ago, in New Orleans..a significant battle was fought almost a month after the PEACE was signed and sealed. It took that long for news to transverse from Paris to America!!! astounding! I revert to Marshall McLuhan and what he had to say about communication...so much has come true. Traditional medium, for discussionable reasons, has not known what to do with itself, TV and Newspapers have become a joke. A new medium is rising and WE are not sure what to do with it. Blogging FB,Texting..it is a vast morphing phenom still being shaped. Our politics has all changed with the changing of communication, and again, we are not sure how to structure it all.

none of this is good, or bad. It is just change. We are going, 'where no man has gone before'....

ok, enough of that shit. I have to be someone today, I can't decide if I should be a Negroe today, or maybe a clam...I think I will be Asian.

Dervish Sanders said...

The Right isn't talking about this. They're focusing on the debunked claim that Harry Reid is causing trouble for poor Cliven because his son Rory made a deal with the Chinese to put up a solar farm near the area. The (fictional) story is that there are endangered turtles on the land where they want to build and they're going to move them to the land Cliven is grazing his cattle on.

(O)CT(O)PUS said...

Scud,
Just because you have rights under the First and Second Amendment, it doesn't mean you should exercise those rights to numbskull excess. You see, there are generally accepted standards of empirical evidence. Errors of omission do not even make a half truth. Insinuations and spin are not facts.

As to your FIRST AMENDMENT rights, it doesn't mean you should shoot your mouth off. As to the SECOND, it doesn't mean you should shoot yourself in the foot.

George Cucumber said...

skudrunner: "No one said the republicans cannot cut their own throat. With the left leaning MSM, every right wing kook will receive 24 hour coverage until another right wing kook comes along."

Because FOx nOOOZ didn't promote Bundy as the hero of the west? Really? It was all the "left leaning MSM?"

And all the conservative blogs didn't hail Bundy as the freedom loving government hating hero?

Drudge and Hannity and Rush are part of the MSM, skudrunner.

However, we know you just like to make shyte up and blame everything on everyone else except when the wingnuts are responsible.

BTW, those other stories about Hillary and Sharpton and the IRS, millions of Americans must stay up at 4 AM to learn about that stuff cuz the country knows about it.

you're just pissed it didn't get Hillary impeached but instead she's a real contender for the presidency.

Life's a beyotch, innit, skud?

Shaw Kenawe said...

To P.E. readers: Up thread is a comment left by Mark Traina. I normally delete such garbage, but decided to post his because it is again more evidence of why there is a race problem within the GOP.

I certainly know that all GOPers don't share the twisted racism expressed by Mark Traina, and that most GOPers are appalled by what this guy has to say.

My question is: Why does he find a comfortable home within the GOP?

Here's a report on the commenter who left that garbage on this blog:

‘Young Black Thugs’ Need To Be ‘Put Down Like The Dogs They Are,’ Says Louisiana School Psychologist.

Dave Miller said...

Shaw, Skud will have no answer for your question. In this instance, conservatives who normally are strong law and order people simply looked the other way when it became inconvenient.

In the vein of some people on the right using "false facts" I even saw where Bundy has broken the law "legitimately."

That's amazing.

Skud, you are correct in that the were some old lions in the Democratic party who belonged to racist organizations like the KKK.

But those people, like Sen Byrd, renounced those views years ago. It should be noted that the majority of those people were part of the old, conservative Democratic Party that supported institutional racism in the south.

The great majority of those unreconstructed folks left the Dems in the 60's for the, wait for it, GOP.

Skud, here's a question for you... essentially from an article by Leonard Pitts Jr.

Let's accept that the GOP has not used race in their criticism and treatment of President Obama. 100% let's accept that. Now then, if they were to use race in their treatment of him, what would it look like?

It's a tough question, in fact it is brutal. I suspect that conservatives will not answer it, choosing some way to deflect, but maybe you will prove me wrong. I hope you do.

Here's the link...

http://www.mcclatchydc.com/2014/04/20/224974/leonard-pitts-jr-race-and-obama.html

And we'll wait for an answer as to why people like Bundy feel at home and that they have allies in the GOP.

Cliven's been a regular Chatty Cathy lately.
From his latest:
“If I say 'Negro' or 'black boy' or 'slave,' if those people cannot take those kind of words and not be [offended], then Martin Luther King hasn't got his job done yet," he added. "We need to get over this prejudice stuff."

The hate jocks are trampling each other on the stairs trying to run from this guy.

skudrunner said...

Dave,

I wouldn't know because I am not a racist and do not like obama because he is incompetent.

cucumber, you do realize that hillary said that about bengazi two days ago don't you. Why is it that leftists watch far more of fox news word than anyone else because you always refer to them. I don't watch fox because I work during the day and have better things to do at night.

The rightwingnuts have their mark traina and the leftyloons have their dervish sanders and slimy reid's so both sides have someone to be ashamed of.

Duckys here said...

Mark Traina's profile is a kick:

Yeah, I can see that.
Evidently this guy is a legit thug, Shaw.

Infidel753 said...

Shaw, Traina left a similar comment on Squatlo's blog. It may be a standard comment he uses on Bundy posts everywhere.

Unfortunately I've seen worse. These people may not be mainstream right wing, but they are under a lot of rocks out there.

Dave Miller said...

Skud, of course you are not and I've never implied that you are. My question is to you personally... What would it look like for Pres Obama to be a victim of racial politics?

Your non answer is the same that we get when we ask conservatives to define extreme right wing behavior.

Pure deflection and people saying they are not conservatives or members of the GOP so they cannot answer... very telling..

"What would it look like for Pres Obama to be a victim of racial politics?"

I am sure there are some who do not like obama because of his race, I don't like him because he is incompetent so I am not sure what you are asking.

A White House Petition that commenters here might want to sign...

Enforce grazing laws against Cliven Bundy to the extent the law allows... On April 12, 2014, US officials relinquished their power over federal lands in Nevada to a band of armed domestic terrorists masquerading as "patriots" - with regard to the illegal grazing being perpetrated for decades by one Cliven Bundy. Mr. Bundy has exhausted years and years of due process, and continues not only to disregard US law, but also does not recognize the legitimacy of the United States government. The BLM should enforce its mandates under the law. And Mr. Bundy and his band of insurrectionists should be prosecuted under the law for instigating armed insurrection against the USA, and for threatening the lives of federal officials.
