Cliven Bundy Doubles Down, Dana Loesch Says Bundy “Isn’t Media Trained”

“The statement was right”

Here’s a recording of right wing hero Cliven Bundy on libertarian Peter Schiff’s show, saying “the statement was right.” And he’s “wondering.” That’s all he was doing, “wondering” if “the nigra” was actually better off picking cotton as a slave. He was just, you know, asking questions.

Meanwhile, at the Bundy Ranch Facebook page, Bundy’s followers are still trying to claim his words were “twisted” and “taken out of context.”

There are new rumors going around about Cliven. We all know that with the media, words are taken out of context, meanings are twisted, and they can take anything and turn it into what they want it to be. Cliven is a good man, he loves all people, he is not a racist man. He wants what is best for everyone.

Wingnut demagogue Dana Loesch was one of Bundy’s biggest admirers, lavishing praise on him since the standoff began, but now she’s desperately making excuses. Apparently, Bundy’s main failing was that he wasn’t media savvy enough to keep these racist opinions to himself: On Cliven Bundy’s Remark.

I hope no one is surprised that an old man rancher isn’t media trained to express himself perfectly. He seems to be decrying what big government has done to the black family — which big government has negatively affected not just the black family, but all families regardless of ethnicity — so perhaps he included that in his remarks against big government?

Good grief. This is one of those very clarifying moments for the right wing. Nobody can deny all the signs were there long before Bundy outed himself as a throwback racist. Racism is an integral part of the libertarian far right, but the smart ones usually try to hide it, as Dana Loesch admits; Cliven Bundy is not one of the smart ones.

But the argument Bundy made about “the nigra” being better off under slavery is an absolutely standard mainstream right talking point; we’ve posted many examples of it here at LGF. The main difference between the standard conservative line and Bundy, though: Bundy used a word that clarified the real meaning, and turned the dog whistle into a high decibel air horn.
