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.
