His statements are around the 17-18 minute mark.
At about the 14 minute mark.
Good luck with finding the perfect cause with the perfect spokesman.
You're letting the leftist set the agenda if you bail out that easily, especially with the New York Times involved.
I reject your premise. I'm sure there were many 'good' slave owners who kept their slave families intact. But I can't believe you are a supporter of slavery. Slavery is a crime against humanity. It is the antithesis of American values.
how has Beck handled this issue .I haven’t heard.
Mostly because they didn't know anything else, or where else to go. But a generation or two later, they were leaving by the millions in the Great Migration.
The Branch Davidians were clearly nutcases and worse, but that didn't give Federal goons the right to incinerate them. Randy Weaver sounded out there on a lot of issues, but that doesn't mean that his family members deserved to be shot. Bundy's views on slavery and race may not be politically acceptable either, but that doesn't give FedGov any more right to rob him of his land and livelihood.
Your statement >>Where he is dead wrong is his belief that slaves had a family life. << indicates there was no family life for the slaves.
Now you’ve changed your song. >> I’m sure there were many ‘good’ slave owners who kept their slave families intact. <<
Make up your mind which side of the fence you’re on.
this is the problem ..intellectual disconnect at times how can he miss the real story, which is the BLM, NOT Cliven Bundy. Bundy cannot tax anyone, cannot throw anyone in jail, cannot arrest anyone, cannot tie anyone else up in red tape, etc.
WTF Up Glenn
Rick Perry Dismisses Nevada Rancher's Racist Remarks

In an interview with CBS This Morning Thursday, Texas Governor Rick Perry discussed the situation at the Bundy Ranch in Nevada and racist comments made by the man at the center of the recent standoff there, rancher Cliven Bundy. Perry said Bundy's remarks were a "side issue" and pointed to a land dispute in Texas with the same federal agency Bundy battled in Nevada, the Bureau of Land Management.
"I don’t know what he said but the fact is Cliven Bundy is a side issue here compared to what we’re looking at in the state of Texas," Perry said. "He is an individual—deal with his issues as you may. What we have in the state of Texas, I don’t get distracted about, is the federal government is coming in and attempting, from our perspective, to take over private property. And you must—f this country’s to stay the land of freedom and liberty, private property rights must be respected."
why anyone would be so stupid as to worry about whether Bundy is pure as the wind driven snow is just beyond me .this is all really easy to understand and yet ..some can’t.
Perry does. But even in Nevada, it’s not about Bundy per se.
La Raza Rick gets it right, much of the time. If he’d just stop sidling up to Juan McShamnesty’s amigo’s, he’d be much better off.
I have not changed my position. Slavery is wrong. All the time. It is the antithesis of the American experiment, where All men are created Equal and endowed by our creator with unalienable rights. There may have been 'good' slaveholders that kept families together, didn't rape the women or sell family members. But Slavery is evil in every case. Some slaveowners may have just been less evil than others.
The headline should be “GOP Races To Show How Completely Useless They Truly Are” or “GOP Rushes To Pander After Jerking Knees”.
And you come across as clueless...
Bundy is saying the same thing I’ve heard Professor Walter Williams say many times. Thomas Sowell also. And Allen West and Clarence Thomas and Armstrong Williams, etc.
I guess they’re all racist.
That would be ‘colored’ not ‘negro’.
