Cliven Bundy, the Nevada rancher who was dismissed earlier this year as a racist for his remarks about black people, thrust himself back into the political discourse this week with an apparent endorsement of a candidate for Congress in Nevada. The Congressional candidate is a black man named Kamau Bakari.
The odd couple is seen in an ad complaining about black people and political correctness, with Bundy claiming that he has done the hard work, has put his time in and should be allowed to say whatever he wants in this country. After all, FREEDOM!
“I worked my whole life without mistreating anybody,” Bundy said in the ad, “a man ought to be able to express himself without being called names.”
Kamau Bakari agreed with Bundy, calling him “a brave white man” for making his racist statements. He said Bundy was exactly what America needs to “put an end to this political correctness stuff!” Kamau then said he “is ashamed” when black folks talk about white folks, saying, “white folks this and white folks that, always begging.” And to that statement, Bundy answered, “it’s almost like black folks think white folks owe then something.”
Sidenote: In case you forgot, Bundy was chastised for saying that black people are on government subsidies and “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.”
The two men then called out Eric Holder, labeling him a “race baiter.” They asked Holder to come to Nevada and talk with them, just like he did when he went to Ferguson. “Mr. Eric Holder, this is one white that’s not scared to talk about race,” Bundy says. “I dare you to come to Las Vegas and talk to us.”0
