    As supporting evidence, see his apparent lack of knowledge and sense eloquently demonstrated in his now-infamous statement about black people and "Mexicans".

    He doesn't seem capable of leading the people involved.
    Of course it could be a case of "blind leading the blind", as the saying goes.
    Indeed. That's what I'm trying to explain to Filthy McNasty. How do you safely reason with someone like Mr. Bundy?

    No editing by the NYT could make the nature of Bundy's comments any more racist.
    Do you think Sean Hanity only read the NYT when he called Budy's speech "disgusting, deplorable and racist"?
    I'm sure that Hanity watched the entire unedited speech before he would commit to that description of what his former hero said.

    Your lazy excuse/personal insult for why you won't educate yourself as to what was already said is pretty pathetic. But it does make sense in that you also refused to educate yourself about the BLM and property liens. Topic must have only been interesting enough for your participate in but not actually know what you are talking about in. You don't like that? Sorry, can't help you.
    I've been here a lot longer than you and I intend to keep it that way.

    Hmm...

    From a distance.

    Or at gunpoint, I suppose.The former is safer though.

    He could have said THE black man and been every bit as racist.
    You don't even see the racism in talking about an entire race with one description do you ?
    You are so accustomed to expressing racism with this kind of racist language that you can not see anything wrong with it...
    You fixate on the word negro while missing the entire racist thrust of the sentence.
    WOW!
    There is no racism in what he said. You are imagining it.

    But yes I think that the police shouldn't allowed armed militia groups to operate in this history, groups who deny the existence of the government, seek to overthrow it, will use terrorism and tactics such as human shields. This is beyond simple law enforcement, beyond unpaid fees, its about whether or not an insurgent groups is going to be allowed to operate in this country or not.
    Of course. And yet...you and others like you pee yourself talking about how its the 'other guys' that want Waco2. But hey...at least you are honest about it.

    Who knows...maybe they could call the RA in and you could lead a group that got to squeeze off a few rounds and kill of a few of them yourself. Dare to dream.

    Thats just a whole bucket of AWESOME...we have us a liberal REMFin' BADASS salivating at the prospect of killing himself some American militiamen.

    His statements were either supremely uninformed (and thus unknowingly racist in nature)...or intentionally racist.

    Either way they were definitely laden with terms a racist would gladly throw around.
