We noted earlier that GOP presidential candidate Rand Paul met with far right racist anti-government rancher Cliven Bundy yesterday in Nevada, but tonight it’s coming out that Paul and Bundy actually had a private sit-down meeting for approximately 45 minutes.
The Nevada rancher said that he had expected only to have an opportunity to shake hands with Paul and make small-talk. He was surprised when campaign aides found a private room and allowed Bundy, his wife and son to speak with the candidate for the better part of an hour.
According to Bundy, the two mainly discussed federal land oversight and states’ rights, in addition to education policy — a theme Paul brought up in his speech.
“I don’t think he really understood how land rights really work in the western United States,” Bundy said. “I was happy to be able to sort of teach him.”
A Republican candidate for President of the US makes time in his schedule to meet with a racist sovereign citizen head case, to talk about “states’ rights.” In 2015. Does this bother anyone but me?
