UPDATE: Righting the wrongs and exposing the lies. See my update to this post entitled — “EXPOSED: NYT Caught EDITING, DISTORTING Cliven Bundy’s remarks! See full clip.”
Progressives are so predictable. Apparently, a reporter and photographer from the New York Times decided to show up last weekend at Cliven Bundy’s ranch for Bundy’s daily conference.
The fact that the NYT popped up on the scene should have set off alarm bells and warnings with someone, anyone but it did not. Bundy not being a seasoned interviewee stepped into a land mine.
Bundy, it can be said, although expressing his freedom of speech and thought said something that the New York Times rag could twist, turn and regurgitate making this one statement a major distraction for weeks to come.
The endgame, of course, is to distract and to drive a wedge between public opinion and the massive BLM land grab going on across the United States. In this case, Nevada.
Somehow, during the interview, Bundy entered into a discussion about abortion, welfare and its effects on Black America.
New York Times Excerpt (Bundy’s Remarks)
‘…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 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?’ he asked. ‘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….’

Of course, Bundy’s remarks has nothing to do with the land grab which is why I wonder that with everyone surrounding the Bundy’s these past few weeks why didn’t someone, again anyone tutor Mr. Bundy when it came to the mainstream media. Better yet, why wasn’t someone around to keep him on subject?
Look, I am not going to sugar coat this or make excuses for the politicians now busting a gasket to distance themselves from Bundy. I will say that I am sick of candy arse (forgive my language) bureaucrats and Conservative journalist and pundits (you know who you are, your government check is in the mail) running for the nearest exit when Progressives pull a fast one, someone is misquoted, taken out of context or shares a view that is not pc. These land grabs by the federal government is so much bigger than that.
At the same time, I make no excuses for Bundy’s remarks but since this unhyphenated American has made similar remarks herself, as have many hard-working Blacks about self-loathing Blacks on the government dole, does that make me racist? (Warned you, no sugar coating.)
I have no interest in the government’s smear campaign intended to destroy Cliven Bundy after which the federal government will then go in for the kill.
Now that I have had my say, in the future, anything that I write from here on in regarding the Bundy Ranch Standoff, BLM’s land grab and that ODB, Harry Reid, will be on subject not the distractions.
