“I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro,” ... Mr. Bundy recalled driving past a public-housing project in North Las Vegas ",.... they didn’t have nothing to do. They didn’t have nothing for their kids 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,…” Source: New York Times (4/23/2014)
Read it and weep. Wonder what kind of family life, free time, and hobbies he thought an African slave had in the antebellum South? Of course this from a "welfare rancher" .

Currently many Republican politicians are now backpedaling support of Bundy or saying "no comment"
Nevada (R) Senator Heller has disavowed Bundy ...
update: Rancher Bundy is toast (Sen. Rand Paul just slammed Clive Bundy's racist rant)
