Never Saw This Coming

“They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton,” Bundy was quoted as saying to a group of supporters last Saturday. “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.”

Crazy Nevada rancher-thief conservative cause celeb Cliven Bundy is also apparently a total racist. Funny how these radical libertarian types so often seem to have racist skeletons in the closet. And by "funny" I mean "horrifying."  No, seriously, Ron and Rand Paul both have racist presences rattling around in their peripheries, and this makes complete sense.  In the end, "libertarianism" isn't about freedom; instead, it's about property rights, especially property belonging to whites, who own most of the property, anyway.  It is no surprise, then, that so many straight-up racists are attracted to this "philosophy."  It allows them to be total racist dicks and say that it's not about race, but rather "freedom."

Entertaining this shit is just insulting to one's intelligence.  Fucking racist assholes.
