Let me get this straight… so Donald Sterling the owner of the Clippers gets banned in the NBA for life and gets a very large fine for saying controversial racist comments but nothing happens to Cliven Bundy after he made those comments about comparing the Feds take over of his land to black slaves??? Even if Cliven Bundy made those comments — sure enough, Conservatives/Republicans were still defending him and staying by his side. Donald Sterling gets in trouble and Bundy gets a free pass? Yep, everybody thinks what Sterling said was bad while everyone still stood up to Cliven Bundy. Bundy made those comments and he’s still hiding behind the “Constitution”.
I’m not defending Donald Sterling, I hate what he said too and think they are racist comments but everybody should look at Cliven Bundy the same way. That’s kind of the point I’m trying to make, ya know what I mean? The only reason Conservatives/Republicans are still defending Cliven Bundy despite his racist comments is because they worship him for fighting back at the Feds. You know how people are. They’ll worship their heroes no matter how much trouble they get in the media.
This is almost starting to make me feel ashamed to be a right-winger a little bit. People are delusional and messed up in this country. Racism is obviously a huge problem still. If Dr. Martin King was still alive today… he would be disgusted with America playing the race-card. I think Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are lousy activists. Dr. King would have handled things better than they did.
What Cliven Bundy did was very heroic and inspiring. This man didn’t do this for himself. He did it to make a difference in America and fight for Constitutional rights. He had every right to own those cows and they were completely “legal”. Cliven Bundy and his team fighting back and was successful at getting the Feds to leave was pretty amazing stuff. He was also successful at getting the BLN to release the cows back to him.
This man deserves a Noble peace prize. I’m sure liberals and other people will have a different opinion on this. Some would think those cows were illegal for him to own and some would think he got away with it but no matter what you think of him… Cliven Bundy won. This man was very brave and had a lot of balls to fight back at our government. He couldn’t take no shit so he stood up for himself and the American people.
This felt like the Wild West. Like those Western movies… John Wayne or Clint Eastwood. I can absolutely see Hollywood making a movie based on this just like they did with Tom Hanks and Captain Phillips.
This incident is VERY similar to other incidents like the Benghazi attacks and Operation: F&F. So hopefully this is good enough to see that the government were responsible for Benghazi and Operation: F&F after to what they did with Cliven Bundy. You’re just working and living your daily lives and suddenly you get surrounded by armed men in a very quick time. That’s what happened on all of these incidents.
I’m glad the Cliven Bundy incident ended positively ’cause it could have been worse. There could have been deaths out of this and glad people weren’t hurt or even killed.
I’m afraid this isn’t over yet, though. I’m feeling the Obama administration and the Feds aren’t gonna give up on him. They’ll find other ways to get him. I feel for Cliven’s safety now, though. He could be next on Obama’s “mysterious” accident list.
Now this is a real American!!!! He’s fighting back at Obama and our corrupt government. I don’t know much about the Cliven Bundy story but going to read more into it but I do believe he is innocent.
While he is doing a good thing fighting back at the Feds, he’s definitely not going to win, though. Obama and the Feds will have him killed. Just wait for it. This standoff could go on for days and weeks. The Feds aren’t gonna give up until he’s dead.
The reason this reminds people of Benghazi ’cause this is VERY similar to Benghazi. Just people working and living their daily lives and all of a sudden they are being attacked by armed men. Is this good enough for you to see that Obama was behind Benghazi yet?
Bundy didn’t deserve this, whether his cattle was illegal or not. This is just government power and greed. Nothing more. Nothing less. Obama acting like a tough guy like usual.
