NOTE: At WayneDupree.com we choose to report on EVERYTHING and if someone is wrong, they are totally wrong. This article regarding Mr Cliven Bundy is my take on the situation that has happen and is going viral.
I am down the middle on many things but I lean right politically because I don’t believe in the liberal agenda..been down that road and I won’t subscribe to that mailing list. I can talk to the most racist person as long as they don’t become belligerent and disrespectful. I support Cliven Bundy, the rancher from Nevada in the way, I don’t think government has the right to pull guns on an American citizen or escalate a situation with armed security.
I also don’t agree with Senator Harry Reid and his bully tactics from a supposed high political position to go after this American citizen but I am totally pissed at the comments by Bundy that I just found out. I think they are reprehensible and uncalled for. There is no need for an apology from him because this is how he thinks. Once again, I support his rights as an American, but I am totally disappointed at these revelations.
At a press conference attended by New York Times reporter Adam Nagourney, Bundy held forth on race in America at some length.
“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.”
The comments were quickly rejected by some of Bundy’s most ardent supporters. A spokesman for Nevada Senator Dean Heller told the NYT that Heller “completely disagrees with Mr. Bundy’s appalling and racist statements, and condemns them in the most strenuous way.”
I am not dumb by any means. I see that liberals are going to use this as a tool to drive a wedge against support for Bundy. As I stated on social media, here comes Sharpton, Jackson, MSNBC and CNN. Bundy
Here’s how social media is reading it

We can have our laughs, but "Thoughts On The Negro" by Cliven Bundy & Lynn Vincent will be a runaway bestseller by August.

Did ANYONE think that Cliven Bundy had enlightened views on race relations? Conservatives did this to themselves. http://t.co/CMrYxiEa8D

That disappointing moment when you notice a post on your Facebook timeline from a childhood friend in support of Cliven Bundy. Just blech!
