And yes, it went as well as we would expect. Which is totally awesome. Check it out...
Really, all you gotta do these days is give them enough rope and they will, uh, talk about hangings and stuff they seem to pine for back in the good ol days.
Conservative freedom hero Cliven Bundy has announced he will have daily press briefings, and if they go like this one did, then Sean Hannity might need to find a new outrage this week.
“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"There's no more freedom more essential than freedom of dumb speech, and we should hope this jagoff continues to show everyone his intolerance and extremist views. And it sounds like he is planning on doing just that:
“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.”
He said he would continue holding a daily news conference; on Saturday, it drew one reporter and one photographer, so Mr. Bundy used the time to officiate at what was in effect a town meeting with supporters, discussing, in a long, loping discourse, the prevalence of abortion, the abuses of welfare and his views on race.H/T to Chris Hayes on Twitter for teeing this up. Hopefully this gets as much attention as their freedom militias did when they stared down the Feds.
