If you’ve been under a rock this past week or so, you missed the dust-up in Bunkerville, NV. One Cliven Bundy, elderly, rambling, deeply misguided on many issues, and lawfully, technically, wrong, without a legal leg to stand on, said some stupid things after a bunch of Tea Party literally ran to his support, on horseback, w/rifles, colors blazing.
We’ll tackle why BLM showed up w/armored tanks and snipers in moment, but let’s tackle the 1st amendment first: What Cliven Bundy imagined about the idyllic, gardening, family-unit lives of slaves is… inexplicable. I can only ascribe it to the same category Obama supporters put Reverend Wright’s racism: ‘Well… You have to understand the times he grew up in. His generation. That’s what those people were taught by their fathers and grandfathers…’
So let’s all agree what he said, in the same way we all (well, non-Obama supporters) agreed that what Reverend Wright preaches, is deeply offensive, racist, and wrong, okay?
ALL THE MORE REASON TO DEFEND HIM.
THE 1ST AMENDMENT ISN’T THERE FOR SPEECH YOU AGREE WITH. IT’S THERE FOR SPEECH YOU DON’T AGREE WITH.
You love liberty?
STAND WITH BUNDY – or more specifically, AGAINST ARMED BILL COLLECTING.
BECAUSE IT HAS ****NOTHING**** to do with Cliven Bundy! Just like Dana Loesch said!
This is about ARMED BILL COLLECTING!
Al Sharpton owes more than $2M. Are there SWAT teams showing up in Harlem?
Warren Buffet owes ONE BILLION in back taxes. ARE THERE SWAT TEAMS SHOWING UP IN OMAHA??????
Of course not.
This isn’t even about back taxes (or grazing fees) lawfully owed.
THIS WAS A MESSAGE. This was a MESSAGE being sent to ALL of us. Same message sent to Gibson Guitar and the poor raw milk farmers who were treated to pre-dawn armed raids.
F*CK WITH OBAMA AT YOUR PERIL.
What the HELL are our agencies doing armed to the f*cking teeth anyway?
WHATEVER HAPPENED TO PUTTING A LIEN ON THE RANCH FOR CRYING OUT LOUD?
I stand with those who stand AGAINST ARMED BILL COLLECTING. And if the name at the center of it happens to be Cliven Bundy, Reverend Wright, Timmy ‘Turbo Tax’ Geithner or anyone ELSE I find reprehensible – or ENDORSE – I DON’T CARE. So be it. What happened in Bunkerville was WRONG.
