"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.

"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."

Bundy is on government subsidies. What he does think the grazing system is? It is a subsidized program that costs more to run than it takes in.

From the comments:

"Hmm, hmm, hmm. Racist douchebag, hates the federal government, dishonest, illogical, oblivious to his own faults, embarrassment to his own side. Ladie and gentlemen and others, I think the vacancy so recently left by the death of Fred Phelps has been filled!"

Bundy has also advertised himself as "a good steward of the land." When the BLM asked him to reduce his grazing herd, he refused.

Bundy overgrazed public lands.

that pundits on tv don't say everyday.

That the federal government enslaves people today by creating dependence.

They just don't use the same poor word choice.

So, this is just about his word choice.

Got it.

Bundy owes us $1.1 million (not counting interest and penalties) in grazing fees. He is illegally taking subsidies from the public and then using racist comments to defend himself.

As for blacks being dependent on the government, most government assistance goes to white folks. Most teabaggers are on Medicare and SS. Why is it okay for old white folk to take from the government, but not for blacks? The majority of food stamp recipients are white, not black.

And no, the only people who are worse off than slaves are the dead, and that is debatable.

I noticed several headlines this morning saying the GOP is backing away from this guy because of these comments. Who did they think he was?

He's just inconvenient to them right now. If they find out he can raise money effectively for the GOP, watch them embrace him again.

The Right embraced Carrie Prejean with her homophobic comments at a beauty pageant, but they later regretted it when they found out what a stupid tool she is.

They are doing the same thing with Bundy. Embrace a felon because he steals from the government, and then shockingly, you find out he makes appalling statements based on ignorance and racism. (Although that is redundant, since all bigotry is based on ignorance.)

Regarding the government subsidy Bundy receives: even if he had been paying his grazing fees he would still be the beneficiary of a government subsidy.

The BLM spends a lot of money administering the grazing program, and doing whatever else is associated with managing lands in the program. The annual amount is about $140 million (I saw $144 million in one reference). From grazing fees they take in about $21 million per year.

Of course, on the video tape of his rant, Elder Bundy
used that old Strom Thurmond weasel-word "Nihgra."

He's an embarrassment to the Church. Somebody ought
to pull his temple recommend.

Not only did Bundy actually say "Nihgra" in the press conference, he also used "the" in front of it -- a way to make a monolithic group of bad actors out of the individuals.

"the Negro" -- give me a break.

At least he didn't say that they were cursed with a
skin of blackness, or that they'd become white and
delightsome if they got off the front porch and out
into the cattle range, to steal that government largess.

Anyone know what kind of LDS leadership positions this fella has held or holds now?
