Rand Paul and Sean Hannity's friend Cliven Bundy took some time to whitesplain about the negro, welfare, porches and black men in jail.

And yes, it went as well as we would expect. Which is totally awesome. Check it out...

Well hoh lee shit.

Really, all you gotta do these days is give them enough rope and they will, uh, talk about hangings and stuff they seem to pine for back in the good ol days.

Conservative freedom hero Cliven Bundy has announced he will have daily press briefings, and if they go like this one did, then Sean Hannity might need to find a new outrage this week.

“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.”

There's no more freedom more essential than freedom of dumb speech, and we should hope this jagoff continues to show everyone his intolerance and extremist views. And it sounds like he is planning on doing just that:
He said he would continue holding a daily news conference; on Saturday, it drew one reporter and one photographer, so Mr. Bundy used the time to officiate at what was in effect a town meeting with supporters, discussing, in a long, loping discourse, the prevalence of abortion, the abuses of welfare and his views on race.
H/T to Chris Hayes on Twitter for teeing this up. Hopefully this gets as much attention as their freedom militias did when they stared down the Feds.

***SMALL THX UPDATE: Hey thanks for the recs! Been a long time since I diaried. Last time I was on the rec list was for posting a false flag Fitzmas a few years back. How time flies. But much appreciated and happy to spread the word on this loser!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
