It’s good to know that there are some people still out there who yearn for the good ol days.

Cliven Bundy, the simple straw-hatted cattle rancher who wanted the federales to get off his land and to surrender their guns was the new face of American freedom two weeks ago.

 

All that might change after today.

Adam Nagourney discovered in a New York Times interview discovered that Bundy also feels like African-Americans should be rushing back to slavery if they knee what was good for them.

In the interview, Bundy is quoted as saying

“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.”

I’m sure conservatives would want to back up from Bundy for a while.
