Cliven Bundy is Crazier And More Racist Than You Imagined; Believes “the Negro” Was Better Off in Slavery, Picking Cotton
In a profile published Wednesday night by Adam Nagourney for The New York Times, Cliven Bundy is quoted as saying that African-Americans were better off in slavery, picking cotton.
- Bundy: "I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro..."
- "...I’ve often wondered, are they better off as slaves, picking cotton..."
The First Lady was originally scheduled to speak at a combined graduation ceremony on May 17, but a petition led by high school senior Taylor Gifford caught the attention of the press, on its way to collecting 2,700 signatures from around the country. That extreme minority of aggrieved students, parents, and random Obama-haters has apparently prevailed. From The White House:
Nevada rancher and racism grenade Cliven Bundy has Republicans and conservatives scrambling to deal with his remarks on the state of “the Negro,” and the BLM bugaboo is not making their job easier. In an interview with Tom Woods Thursday morning, Bundy was asked about the charges of racism being leveled against him, and he responded by doubling down on those remarks, telling Woods “That’s exactly what I said, I’m wondering if they’re better off…
As Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy blows up in the faces of conservatives who championed his cause by articulating what is, in fact, mainstream Republican thought, the left waits to see which conservatives will back away, and which will lean into it. Conservative radio host and media figure Dana Loesch has given us an idea of what the latter will look like with a comical defense of Bundy’s remarks about “the Negro” that will, hopefully, be adopted by many of her contemporaries.
It’s been about a week since Edward Snowden’s epic blunder on RT in which he foolishly handed Vladimir Putin a major propaganda victory, then followed up the appearance by authoring a hamfisted clarification published in The Guardian. In the article, Snowden explained that his question wasn’t intended to be a softball for Putin, even though it ended up being exactly that, but instead it was meant to catch Putin in a lie and therefore touch off a debate about civil liberties in Russia, much like the rapidly dwindling debate in the U.S.
Amanda Marcotte Says Teen ‘Sexually Harassed’ Miss America, Conservatives Respond By Sexually Harassing Her
Hey, remember Patrick Farves, the 18 year-old high school senior who made national news by getting himself a 3 day (in-school) suspension for disrupting an assembly by asking Miss America to the prom? Well, feminist freelancer Amanda Marcotte decided to do God’s work and tell these kids, and/or their parents, to put an end to the embarrassing annual spectacle of pity-courting, and called the ritual “sexual harassment.” Conservatives responded by telling the ugly bitch to go masturbate herself to sleep. Or words to that effect.
What Hannity is doing by relentlessly validating Bundy and his militia buddies’ armed standoff with the federal government — providing them, night after night, with a big sloppy kiss and a phalanx of Fox News’s powerful Marshall stacks to amplify their neo-Confederate rhetoric — is helping to push this whole thing further and further toward a violent confrontation.
According to Dr. Hannity, property rights are conditional — at least in cases where the property is owned by the government — on whether the owner has plans to build something on it. This is a groundbreaking interpretation of property rights that lesser minds like say, John Locke, were too limited to envision.
As Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) ably demonstrated, just because you don’t say “black” doesn’t mean we can’t hear it. On Tuesday night’s The Kelly File, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and host Megyn Kelly artfully avoided the word “black,” while expanding Ryan’s criticism of the black community to include “thuggishness” and a “sickness of spirit,” as well as an ability to tell right from wrong.
On Tuesday the NYPD’s Twitter page, @NYPDnews, asked users to tweet pictures of positive interactions between the public and city cops with the hashtag #myNYPD. Surprisingly, with all of their intelligence equipment, they forgot that while everyone loves the idea of the “New York policeman”, everyone actually hates cops.
