So they are totally on Cliven Bundy's side, through thick and thin, but they also know this is making them look pretty bad to normal people.
So they eagerly alight on the fact that the NY times excerpted that Bundy slavery quote, assume it's all a frame-up, and then...screw it up by being all racist.
ZULU didn't even bother to read the article.
Puts it all in different light.ThunderSleeps also rests assured in assuming media bias:
Selective editing on the part of the NYT? Say it ain’t so, Joe.Graewoulf does not understand why the blacks only pay attention to the past 60 years, and not the time before that!
I'm shocked, shocked I say! . . . Actually, not so much. MSM thinks they can do anything.
It has always been of great curiosity to me why the Democrat Party has turned out to be the 95 % Block Vote Choice of those previously freed from Slavery.Graewoulf also suggests a return to segregated schools:
The Democrat Party supported the Southern Plantation System, and the KKK, but now have generations of the descendants of these same slaves on the Federal Welfare Plantation System, with headquarters at 1600 Plantation Avenue, District of Corruption, with a Black Man currently running it!
Have the decisions made by Republican Presidents Lincoln and Eisenhower had such a short historical imprint on our current policy towards each other in the body politic?
This is a subject that the PC Police do NOT want to be discussed, but IMHO, it is time - - - time for a change.re_nortex preaches the gospel of GOP Presidents.
Krauthammer had a great observation on FOX this week: “Why do the Liberals send inner city Black kids to Berkley where the Black kids have a 54 % flunk out rate and the White kids have only a 14 % flunk out rate?
Why not send inner city kids to good Black schools, like Morehouse, so can they have a much better chance of a good education AND becoming more successful in our Society?” [Note: as best as I can remember what Charles said].
IMHO, we should learn from the past, hope for the best, and do the best we can with what is left of America. (Pun not intended).
both President Calvin Coolidge and President Ronald Reagan expanded opportunities for all Americans. The policies of both of these fine men led to years of unprecedented opportunities, with income growth in the every community and demographic. Why a large number of blacks have so little regard for Coolidge, or more notably, Reagan is utterly incomprehensible.hosepipe sets out a right to be racist.
I reserve the RIGHT to despise some whites, blacks, asians, and hispanics...Uncle Lonny details all the racism he has managed to make up:
Compare the media uproar over Bundy’s “racist” comments to the silence of the Corrupt Liberal Media over Jamie Foxx gloating on Saturday Night Live about killing “ALL the white people. How great is that? How black is that?”left that other site laments how liberal Free Republic has gotten these days.
Or Eric Holder’s open statement made before the Senate Judiciary Committee in June, 2009, that federal hate crime laws do NOT cover racially motivated violence against white Americans because whites are not an Holder approved “protected group”.
And Holders exempting black on white racist violence from federal law and Jamie Foxx’s glorifying and inciting it is especially egregious considering that thousands of whites are victims of racially motivated attacks by blacks every year in the USA.
Bundy is an elderly white blue collar rancher who is held to a much higher standard than a racist black Attorney General who is corrupting the law.
There is plenty of racism evident in this story and it is the same old racist DOUBLE STANDARD that is SOP of “liberals” and their toadies in the Corrupt Liberal Media.
OF COURSE this was a cleverly edited “Hit Job” by the NYT.grania synthesizes the desire to side with Bundy and to be politically relevant by making this yet another purity test to smoke out all the insufficiently crazy politicians:
However, what Hannity, Beck, and many others fail to recognize is that Our Constitutional Rights DO NOT depend upon our personal prejudices, clumsy speech patterns, or even our IQ.
The unedited interview says things that we say here on FR all the time, about how the Welfare State has destroyed the Black Family in America.
Mr. Bundy is just not quite as eloquent as the average FReeper in expressing these truths.
I was really stunned at the knee-jerk reaction of many FReepers when this first came out. Epithets such as “Idiot”, “Troll” and “Racist” streamed onto the threads about Mr. Bundy from people I usually respect. Mostly these were from people who felt that Bundy had “Hurt Our Cause”.
So, does that mean when a person is unlovely, maybe a little ignorant, or even railroaded by the liberal press, that we should no longer defend his Constitutional Rights?
FR has a Proud tradition of uncovering Lamestream Media Hoaxes that are meant to discredit us. Rathergate, Green-Helmet-Guy, Flat Fatima, The GI Joe Hostage Doll, and the Edited Zimmerman Tapes are all examples of how the bright and discerning minds of FR have been at the forefront of speaking the Truth and uncovering the lies and hoaxes.
This whole Bundy situation is fascinating. The DC politicians, even those who pretend to be constitutional conservatives, did not have the instincts to side with Bundy and states rights and individual rights to use what were once called public grazing lands. Then after the standoff, the light comes on and they realize that a majority of people don't like federal over-reach and the sneaky profitiable for politicians deals to use rhe land for their schemes. But you know what? They're all in the DC smog, so they're probably looking for how to get on that gravy train.
So those pols appealing to conservatives sent out a message "send us some cover" so they could drop support of Bundy and the issue. In comes the NYT editing Bundy and changing a message of "today people are enslaved by the federal government" to "Bundy's a crazed racist". Immediately, the fake conservatives had an excuse to drop the cause, and they thought still keep their supporters.
It didn't work. We now know who the worst of the fakes are. People like Rand Paul, Shawn Hannity and Glenn Beck were so quick to condemn that they had to know this was coming. We can't trust them ever again. And as far as the rest of the crowd? Did ANY of the pols we support as conservatives have the instincts to support Bundy's questioning of the over-reach of the federal government?
It's all so rigged. The only silver lining is politicians and talkers who supposedly support constitutional conservative have been exposed.
