    In some peoples minds, only Muslims are terrorists, whereas putting women and children at the front lines of a stand off between the government and an armed militia is "patriotism".

    If anything, it's been the militia groups who have come to Bundy's aid who have tried to escalate the violence just to gain attention much like Waco, TX or Ruby Ridge several years ago. And please, don't get me wrong. IMO, the government was wrong in both cases because the agents involved used poor judgment and excessive force even though the law was on their side. But in this case, I'd say the BLM & FBI have both used good judgment and restraint. Yet, at every turn it appears they're being provoked to strike first blood.

    Bundy should just give up while he still can.

    But again, apdst, it was Bundy and the militia groups that came to his defense who forced the government to spend that $2M. But like I said, had this been a private landowner and not the fed, you'd be all for it.

    How is it rational to just ignore enforcement of the law because someone resisted hard enough?

    As I learn more and more about this situation, one thing is apparent to me: For a political party that claims to be strong supporters of "the law" - because you always hear someone on the Right claiming to be "law abiding citizens", it sure is ironic to see them supporting a guy who is clearly violating federal law just to make a personal anti-government statement.

    I mean, Right-Wingers are so quick to point out, for example, how illegal aliens have violated federal law by merely crossing the U.S./Mexico border and should pay a fine if they want to remain in the U.S. But when a cattle rancher is given permission to graze a specific amount of cattle provided he pays the proper permit fee but instead chooses not to, suddenly he's trumped up as a "patriot".

    Tell me all you Republicans out there who support Bundy's cause: Where's your rigid defense of upholding the law now?

    If you really think that's an accurate characterization of what he said, you're beyond help.

    Of course. Along with Animal Farm, Burmese Days, Down and Out in Paris and London, The Clergyman's Daughter, The Road To Wigan Pier, Homage To Catalonia, Keep The Aspidistra Flying, Coming Up For Air, his assorted papers, essays, diaries, and newspaper articles.

    Of his "Nine Majors" I'd rank 1984 a solid 4. Homage, Down and Out, Keep the Aspidistra (I have one in my living room I've named Blair in honor of) Flying in the 1-3 spots.

    Now that we've put my knowledge of George's works to rest allow me to say if you had understood 1984, you wouldn't have posted as you had.

    Oh I understood it, and there is a big difference between Winston Smith being arrested for questioning the government, and BLM officials trying to bring a man to justice for refusing to pay his fees, ignoring court orders, and surrounding himself with armed militia.

    Or are you just too damn prejudiced to see that?


    Warning signs?
    Bs!
    You look at what was said, how it was said, and what was actually meant.

    And if the idiots could past the point of their false claims of racism, maybe we get started actually discussing and coming up with ways to fix the problem that he sees in the condition of the black man enslaved to the welfare state.


    Nothing he said was racist.
    And this crap about sensitivities is bs.





    That is because you bother to consider what he meant by what he said.





    Wtf? He didn't judge them.
    And no, he is not a racist. That is an idiotic claim.
    And no, racists do not use the words he used in the way he used them. So can your bs.
    He spoke directly to the welfare state and how it has harmed the negro race.

    And if anybody thinks the following is what a racist would say, their thinker isn't on straight.
    I was in the Watts riot, I seen the beginning fire and I seen that last fire. What I seen is civil disturbance. People are not happy, people are thinking they don't have their freedoms, they didn't have these things, and they didn't have them.

    We've progressed quite a bit from that day until now, and we sure don't want to go back. We sure don't want the colored people to go back to that point. We sure don't want these Mexican people to go back to that point. And we can make a difference right now by taking care of some of these bureaucracies, and do it in a peaceful way.
    Well I guess you need to talk to all the people in the republicon party who have run away from this asshole because of his racist diatribe.
    People who supported his cause when he was just anti-American and can't wash their hands fast enough to distance themselves from his vile racist stink. People like Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Rick Perry, Herman Cain, Sean Hanity and Fox News in general.
    Smart republicons know to distance themselves and their party from his racist claptrap. Republicons have enough trouble with a racist image without associating with, and supporting a man who is probably the most famous racist on the planet today.
    But yeah keep defending his racist rant trying to defuse and deny what everyone sane in your party knows.
    By defending racists who preach racism you are defining yourselves in no uncertain terms...
    We will all remember what you have said...
    Proceed...
