" . . . Here's a little more on Cliven Bundy, the Nevada rancher you raced to support two weeks ago, as federal agents sought to enforce a legal court order.
"Or put another way, the rancher who mooched off federal land for more two decades, refusing to pay the grazing fees that every rancher pays. . . .
"Here's little more about who you're standing with . . . .http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/04/24/cliven-bundy-racist_n_5204821.html
"For those who don't want to listen to the video, here's what he said:
"'I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro,' he said, He then 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.'
"This . . is the man you [have] raced to rally around?"
