SHOCKER: Tea Party Hero And Freeloading Rancher Bundy: Blacks “Better Off As Slaves” (VIDEO)
On Thursday, news is breaking of disgustingly racist comments that were made by controversial Nevada Rancher Cliven Bundy.
In an interview published in the New York Times, Bundy was quoted as referring to African Americans as “the Negro,” saying,
“I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro… And because they were basically on government subsidy, so now what do they do? They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton. 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.”
Media Matters has obtained video of the remarks:
The article was discussed on Thursday morning’s Morning Joe on NBC, with co-host Joe Scarborough comparing Bundy to George Zimmerman, saying;
“You have a lot of people in conservative media who have raced to this guys defense, and they must be feeling pretty exposed this morning.”
Cliven Bundy is a Nevada rancher that has become a Tea Party hero and hailed as a “patriot” by right-wing conservatives for allowing his cattle to graze on federal lands without paying the mandatory fees. He currently owes the federal government over $1 million dollars. When the federal Bureau of Land Management seized his cattle in early April and demanded payment, armed Tea Party militias rushed to his defense – some bragging about how they would use the women in the group as shields if gunfire erupted between themselves and federal agents. In an effort to avoid bloodshed, the BLM backed down, but the story is far from over.
