The case can be made without advocating or even musing on chattel slavery. This is not about PC.
Now to read the article...
See, we told you the tea party is full of racists.
These people are despicable.
The government doesn't grant rights. Therefore the government didn't give the people raising a ruckus in the '60s any more rights than they had. What the government did do was grease the skids so the selfsame people who had previously been encouraged to excel no longer had to do so. Some favor. People who had previously been determined to better their lot through hard work now found it no longer necessary. The family breadwinner became optional, then a burden (reduced benefits). The family broke down for any in thrall to the Government, and once again, millions had a master, who could bestow benefits or take them away almost at a whim: the Government.
No, just a different style of chains.
God bless everyone who did not opt in, who remained independent, who worked hard to be their best, and who kept their families together.
And it could get even worse. Maybe something like "I won't pay my back taxes until I get appointed to a cabinet post."
Let the character assassination begin...I’m surprised it took this long...
Effin’ vermin...need to be exterminated.
Actually, if these statements are accurate he will be slammed by 90% of America for pretty blatant racist remarks. Paul, Heller, etc, pretty much everyone is going to walk about from someone who talks like this.
I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro, he said. Mr. Bundy recalled driving past a public-housing project in North Las Vegas, and in front of that government house the door was usually open and the older people and the kids and there is always at least a half a dozen people sitting on the porch they didnt have nothing to do. They didnt have nothing for their kids to do. They didnt have nothing for their young girls to do.
And because they were basically on government subsidy, so now what do they do? he asked. They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton. And Ive 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 didnt get no more freedom. They got less freedom.
I mean, come on now. You can't stand around talking about how the negro should have learned to pick cotton. I mean, even the most hard headed amongst us should understand that you can't ally yourself politically with a person who makes such remarks.
Conservatives really, really, need to pick their battles better. How so many of us get suckered into supporting cranks, completely unelectable candidates, scam artists like Herman Cain who run for office to fund a book tour, etc, etc, I will never understand.

Does the first sentence in this smear give you a freaking clue that this is a chopped up, out of context, hit piece?
It is pretty obvious by the “I want to tell you one MORE thing...”!
“Guys if you have the cameras rolling, keep in mind that your language and behavior is going to sway peoples opinions. It is early and perceptions are everything right now. Please, all you Patriots out there keep your cool when standing your ground.” TheArizona 4/10/2014

I you haven’t made it til the left slams you for racism. Bundy has now officially hit the bigtime. :-)
If the quote is accurate, it sounds racist to me. I'm not even on the edge of wonderin' if it was racist.
To compare enslavement, not in the metaphorical sense, but real sold-on-the-block slavery with welfare dependency is ludicrous.
Especially with spiced with reference to picking cotton. Do they even grow cotton in Nevada?
Is the recent bloody Cattle Massacre at Nevada Cattle Rancher Bundys Pioneer Corral damaging the Democrat Party in eyes and words of the Democrat Left Stream Media?
To put this latest Medieval Kill for Sport event in historical context, all one has to do is remember that the Democrat Party was the Founding Party of the KKK.
Is the modern day equivalent of the KKK the Bureau of Feudal Land Management, (BFLM) ?
If so, then Feudal Lord Reid would then be The Grand Dragon of the BFLM.
Feudal Lord Reids Rustlers are hired guns, who are furious but not fast, which also applies to their bitter, vengeful, senile, multimillionaire Leader: Feudal Lord Reid.
With the past Democrat-based KKK, and now the present Democrat-controlled BFLM, ethics be damned, as abject fear is the main goal of both of these ethically Medieval Outlaw Gangs, past and present.
Ethics will be justified later by Liberals who will write the revised PC History of these times, past and present; of powerful men with outlaw hatred toward free people in America, Black or White, poor or rich.
The Jackboot Heel of Democat Tyranny is now upon us, AGAIN !
Occupy Wall Street people were volunteer shock troops for The Democrat Federal Government of Obama, Pelosi, Holder and Schumer.
Reids Rustlers were hired shock troops for the Democrat Federal Government of Reid, Obama and Holder.
Occupy Wall Street people attacked businesses in large cities.
Reids Rustlers attacked cattle in an isolated Nevada Corral.
Both Occupy Wall Street and Reids Rustlers destroyed private property and private jobs.
Both Occupy Wall Street and Reids Rustlers were financially supported, (indirectly and directly, respectively), by the Democrat Obama Administration.
Both Occupy Wall Street and Reids Rustlers were publicly encouraged by the Democrat Obama Administration, and the Democrat Left Stream Media.
He is correct.
Just because something is true doesn’t mean in needs to be said, especially if the saying of it has no chance of helping your main cause.
Racist or not, true or not, it was a STUPID thing to say. The man should have the sense to keep his mouth shut about stuff not related to his case...and I mean DIRECTLY related.
He has caused himself and his case harm, predictable harm, but he was too stupid to recognize that saying what he said has ZERO upside, none. There was no possible benefit to be gained by making the statement - and LOTS of damage.
“It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear a fool....”
