An unedited version of comments by Cliven Bundy has emerged, and it sheds much needed light on the context of his remarks, which condemned him as horribly racist. What’s important to realize is that the media was using this to portray Mr. Bundy as a racist so their unconstitutional show of force could be justified; perception is a very valuable tool in war, and this tool was being used to infringe on the Bundy’s Constitutional rights. Meaning, Obama’s BLM gestapo squad and Harry Reid committed crimes against not only the Bundy family, but We the People as well.
Bundy is battling the U.S. government after federal agents stormed his ranch to confiscate his cattle in a dispute over grazing fees, said a lot more then New York Times and most other news accounts reported. While many liberals will focus on and argue that his use of term “negro” and “colored” are considered politically incorrect, to the 67 year old Bundy, they are acceptable since they were both once preferred terms chosen by blacks.
In a YouTube video, he is filmed already in mid-sentence: LISTEN: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=agXns-W60MI
“… and so what I’ve testified to you — I was in the Watts riot, I seen the beginning fire and I seen that last fire. What I seen is civil disturbance. People are not happy, people are thinking they don’t have their freedoms, they didn’t have these things, and they didn’t have them.
We’ve progressed quite a bit from that day until now, and we sure don’t want to go back. We sure don’t want the colored people to go back to that point. We sure don’t want these Mexican people to go back to that point. And we can make a difference right now by taking care of some of these bureaucracies, and do it in a peaceful way.
Bundy’s comments appear to change the context of the next section, which was quoted, altered in the New York Times release. One clear point the rancher made is that America has progressed since the 1965 race riots and “we sure don’t want to go back.” End Quote. Does this sound like a racist to you? That’s rhetorical.”
Here are the heavily quoted comments from Bundy that followed the above section edited out by most news organizations:
“Let me tell, talk to you about the Mexicans, and these are just things I know about the negroes. I want to tell you one more thing I know about the negro. When I go, went, go to Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, and I would see these little government houses, and in front of that government house the door was usually open and the older people and the kids — and there’s always at least a half a dozen people sitting on the porch. They didn’t have nothing to do. They didn’t have nothing for their kids to do. They didn’t have nothing for their young girls to do.
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, they never learned how to pick cotton. And I’ve often wondered are they were better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things? Or are they better off under government subsidy?
You know they didn’t get more freedom, they got less freedom — they got less family life, and their happiness — you could see it in their faces — they wasn’t happy sitting on that concrete sidewalk. Down there they was probably growing their turnips — so that’s all government, that’s not freedom.” End quote.
Bundy continued by saying this, not what the New York Times and other news sources reported and needed the masses to believe… that Bundy was noting more than a white-racist.
“Now, let me talk about the Spanish people. You know, I understand that they come over here against our Constitution and cross our borders. But they’re here and they’re people — and I’ve worked side by side a lot of them.
Don’t tell me they don’t work, and don’t tell me they don’t pay taxes. And don’t tell me they don’t have better family structures than most of us white people. When you see those Mexican families, they’re together, they picnic together, they’re spending their time together, and I’ll tell you in my way of thinking they’re awful nice people. And we need to have those people join us and be with us not, not come to our party. End quote.
So, Bundy thinks Hispanics are hard-working family people, and laments the current plight of American blacks under the federal welfare system while saying there has been much progress and that “we sure don’t want to go back.” End quote.
To summarize, Bundy thinks Hispanics are hard-working family people, empathizes with the plight of American blacks under the federal welfare system while saying there has been much progress and that “we sure don’t want to go back.” How is this man a racist… HE IS NOT, but the media needed the American people to see him as one so they could justify their unconstitutional force of action. Perception is a very important tool!
