They may be. But he's free to express himself as he wishes.
I dunno’ they sound pretty honest and on target to me.
A lot better than anything that Royal Meeker guy said about the breed.
Not the most delicate way of putting it but I do understand what he’s saying and its not so much that he’s beating up on blacks as expressing pity for them.
The left is after Bundy.
Big time. It is disgusting what is happening.
Republicans are gutless wonders.
Leave it to the increasingly idiotic Paul to step in this .and take the bait - (the dude AINT that smart) - and let the media make this about Bundy, when it’s about the damned BLM and the Fed Gov over reach.
What a pathetic tool, a little man boy, with no situational awareness...
Uh, oh. Now, he’s “racist”, so the GOP will allow the BLM to kill him by kowtowing to the Dems in order to avoid being seen associated with a known “racist.”
Yeah, some how I get the feeling that Mr. Bundy is the type of old timer that couldn’t care less what anybody thinks about him....
"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 cottonwork and hold a job.
And Ive often wondered, are they better off
as slaves, picking cotton with a steady job 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>
Seriously? Who talks like that today? He comes across as a racist...
I notice the Republicans never “scrambled” to condemn the BLM for their Gestapo tactics. I take from their silence that they approve.
I understand his point, and I've wondered the same thing. Government - especially the 'War on Poverty'- has destroyed the black family. But I would not have phrased it that way. No man is better off a slave.
When did he say this?
I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro, he said.
Think what you will about the situation...but no good will derive from anyone starting topic with that sentence. The media and the pol’s will just hear/read that...and won’t get beyond that sentence.
Mr. Bundy has a right to his opinion, but he needs to remember the ‘actual’ point of his fight w/ the Feds and the BLM.
What he is saying is not condemnation of blacks, but a condemnation of our government.
An exaggeration to make a point, a method that is perfectly acceptable.
At any rate, the pols who are so quick to run from him are wimps. “Out of the frying pan and into the fire” might have been an acceptable way to make his point.
It doesn't change that he stood up to the feds and now many US citizens who didn't know before now are aware of how much we've lost to federal over-reach.
Bundy had it all, and squandered it. His comments (however true, that the minorities are enslaved by a new means these days) had nothing to do with his cause and he should damn well know that these comments will not be well received. It takes a professional (like Greenfield or Mark Steyn) to shave close to the truth without sounding offensive.
I cannot get behind this. We need to find another cause, the BLM and all the other agencies will certainly overstep (with lots of military-style hardware) again.
He could have expressed it better, but I find it hard to disagree with his sentiments.
Wait! Bundy supposedly said this last Saturday and yet we are only hearing about this NOW? Also was this recorded or is it still something “overheard” by the NYT? Finally, the term “Negro” is rarely used nowadays. All this makes me suspicious of the veracity of the NYT (and no one else) report.
