Conservatives aren't racist, but there is a problem

Kendall says most conservatives aren’t racist. That’s true, in my experience. Almost all my friends are conservative. I have some friends who express racist attitudes, but those same friends don’t espouse small-government conservative principles. I do see a problem with the conservative media. In their eagerness to advance their cause, they often don’t use wisdom when they promote someone. Case in point: Cliven Bundy.

Oh I know....it's why they strike out with so much irrational emotion.

"Diversity of opinion is the greatest threat to liberals. Especially on this forum."

I'm all for diversity of opinion, it lets us see the crackpots for who they are. Btw, I am not a liberal."

Kendall this is where I have to point out that since you are in disagreement with Ithink and Tiredofit they see you as the enemy.

You opinion is too diverse for them. The same can be said of their opinion on Harry.

Ithink, why is it that you don't seem to care about a person breaking the law? You do agree that Bundy did break the law right?

More on topic, was the Conservatives correct in supporting Bundy before they knew much about him?

I am afirad that the only one with a radical pov on this topic is you Ithink and Tired as well.

All I have done is acknowledge that the man broke the law and he was wrong in doing it. He should be fined and made to keep his cattle off the property that is not his. That's all the Federal agents were trying to do.

Do you think it was reasonable for armed citizens to point weapons at those Federal Agents....over cattle?

"Did he kill anyone? Did he steal from the poor? And that grazing fee baloney won't work here. Did he break up someone's marriage and hurt children involved? What did he do to make you so much better?"

Oy vey...so the law doesn't mean anything to you if the law in question isn't bad enough?

Look, if you commit murder...you might have your life taken away as punishment. Did the Feds do this to Bundy? No, so that example of yours is silly.

Who cares if he stole from the poor? It doesn't matter if he stole from the rich, poor or middle class....he stole. That is what you should focus on.

"Radicalism at its best....we don't care about the louse Bundy."

Permit me to direct you toward the paragraph under this topic's title, "Case in point: Cliven Bundy."

This whole topic is about Bundy and what it means for the Conservative movement in raising people like him up before knowing enough about him.

I always wondered who would take Lily's place. Voila !!! It's Kendall. Radicalism at its best.

Kendall we don't care about the louse Bundy. But your view is weird and strange. Did he kill anyone? Did he steal from the poor? And that grazing fee baloney won't work here. Did he break up someone's marriage and hurt children involved? What did he do to make you so much better? Sinless Kendall haha

"just curious does that apply to everyone?"

It should yes, but the bad behavior of others does not dismiss the bad behavior of Bundy. No more than bringing up Bush's wrongs dismisses Obama's wrongs.

Tiredofit

Yeah if he's doing something wrong, just curious does that apply to everyone?

"At least Bundy works.."

I don't care if the man can crap rainbows and donates hundreds of thousands to the NAACP, if he is doing something wrong...he is doing something wrong.

Pointing out the errors in others does not make what he is doing right.

And Bundy isn't providing...he is selling food to make a profit. Nothing at all wrong with making a living but let's not imply he is doing this work solely out of the kindness of his heart.

Posted 108 days ago.

At least Bundy works, abd provides food for us. That is better and more self satisfying than laying around stoned or drunk and waiting for the next freedom from work style handout.

"So the Feds really need to send out the armed storm troopers to bring down a rancher."

They didn't but by the turn out of crazed militia types, you would think they did.

"Maybe obama wants more money so he can again give it to more bankrupt greenies."

Why do you think President Obama had anything to do with Bundy? He is the head of the Executive Branch and doesn't micromanage every single incident that involves the Federal Govt.

Posted 108 days ago.

We really should worry about one rancher not paying grazing fees. Every day we read about billions of dollars that are wasted, lost, and stolen. And the perpetrators get bonuses. So the Feds really need to send out the armed storm troopers to bring down a rancher. Maybe obama wants more money so he can again give it to more bankrupt greenies. Again.

Exactly what would you call it when a new organization takes a little known rancher with no political ties and make him into a major news story? What do you call it when Republican Representatives rally on a little known rancher's behalf? What would you call it when conservative leaning militia types are willing to defend a little known rancher?

If that's not propping that little known rancher up...what the heck do you call it?

Another opinion huh? You think they did so it's fact.

Some of the goons on Fox's The Five also had Bundy on a political pedestal before he got off topic with the New York Times. Beckle wasn't too smug when some of the others had to backtrack.

I wish I can remember where I saw it, maybe The Five...Andrea I think, but she made it clear there are a few things that white male Republicans should just stay away from. One is reproductive rigths of women and the other is race. In most cases, the Republican in politics that talks on these topics will either step over their own feet or seem like thay are pandering to a specific group.

Actually, Tiredofit, I'd say some--Sean Hannity in particular--did put Bundy on a pedestal. Then, when they found out more about him, they were forced to back away from him. That's the problem to which the title of this thread refers.

Tiredofit

Don't think Bundy has ever been on a pedestal, but make it up as ya go, that's ok
