    They're conservatives. Conservatives don't rebel, they don't resist the government, they don't walk the walk. They whine and complain and stamp their feet and, in the end, they obey.
    Always been that way. Armed rebellion is what liberals do and conservatives can't quite bring themselves to.

    Since, in reality, picking cotton as an activity/job is in no way a race-specific activity. It has simply become iconic (is there a negative form of iconic, like famous/infamous? Nevermind.) of the slavery era, specifically in southern parts of the country.

    What's wrong with those guys? Look again at the poll asking which is more important, the 'right' to discriminate or freedom from discrimination...and see who's supporting their 'right' to discriminate.

    Look at what conservatives have been doing for decades - they're angry that we're taking away their 'rights' to discriminate, to use their prejudice against others, whether native American, Asian, Black, Hispanic, LGBT, or whatever.

    THAT is what's wrong with these guys - their "right" to discriminate means more to them than the right of others to be free from discrimination...

    ...and I guarantee you that there's a whole heck of a lot of people over at Fox News who are publicly condemning Bundy, but privately wishing they could get away with saying exactly what he said.

    Which means the Founding Fathers were quite liberal.

    But where your claim fails is in the Civil War - because the South was anything but liberal.

    He's not my hero Mak. And I don't think he's the hero of anyone that is on the right that isn't a nut. Is he a redneck? Probably. But, so am I. Do you know what redneck means? I mean the actual definition, not the harmful hateful meaning that those tolerant folks on the left use? It means a person that works outside in a blue collar job like construction, farming and ranching. I live on a farm now. And I have a red neck all year round due to getting a sunburn on the back of my neck from bending over and working with my hands.

    But, you tolerant folks on the left keep using that label as a derogatory term, since hateful labels and dividing people into classes is what you guys are all about.

    Did you watch the video in the link I posted? I doubt it. Did I say he was or wasn't a racist? No. I said "Who knows."

    Well, obviously, the tolerant left knows and has labeled him so in another example of your tolerance for others and their beliefs.

    Again, did he use a bad analogy? Damn right he did. What about the rest of his statements? Did he say anything that was racist at all? He made a bad analogy. A very bad and what could be considered an ignorant analogy. Ignorant in the way that he didn't explain himself or what he meant by that statement and ignorant of the way the left would jump all over it to cloud him in controversy to deflect from the real issues. Could it have been taken as an offensive statement. Sure it could. Did he mean it to be offensive? I doubt it, based on the totality of his statements in the video in the link I posted.

    But, you guys on the tolerant left keep dividing people into classes and labeling people with your hateful terminology, like redneck... and of course, racist.

    Now, is the guy wrong for stealing from the government? It sure appears to me that he is. Do I know everything that's going on in this situation? No, and no one else does either. Does it appear that Harry Reid has a financial interest in letting his corporate financial supporters use the same land to build a solar farm? Damn sure right it does.

    There's more to this story than what we know so far. And to label this guy as anything more than just a guy that got caught using federal land without permission or paying for it is nothing more than an attack by the left to smear a guy and his supporters that are on the far right.

    But, you guys on the tolerant left keep dividing people into classes and labeling those that you hate with hateful terms like racist and redneck. Otherwise, it would be harder to identify you and we may actually try to talk to you, which would expose us to being labeled as well. That happens to me almost everyday I post on this forum.

    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    You left out the most important part especially white southern racists.
