David Horsey nailed it in his Los Angeles Times article and political cartoon, both calling out crackpot racist Cliven Bundy for what he is: delusional:
Bundy hops on his horse and parades around carrying the flag of the government he says he doesn’t believe in. He boasts that he is just like one of the founding fathers. He apparently has not figured out that most of his countrymen are starting to see him as a deadbeat who, for 20 years, has fed his cattle for free on land that doesn’t belong to him — land that, in law and in fact, belongs to the people of the United States.
In an earlier post, Cliven Bundy said that his 'Negro' remarks were totally not racist.
Here's what he had to say this morning on CNN:
Wow. Really? He's now the Official Martin Luther King historian and spokesperson? About Rosa Parks?
The scary thing is, Cliven Bundy is just the tip of a very ugly, very ugly conservative iceberg. Via the Southern Poverty Law Center:
Jon Stewart had a thing or two to say about this "hero on the right" who wanted to "keep his cows on welfare":
"He's also apparently a professor of Negro studies...
...at Duke University....DAVID Duke University."
He's all yours, GOP. You can try to run away from your adulation of this horror story of a being, but all your public smooches were recorded for all to see, documented forever. Good luck with that.
