  1. Yes, yes. Happy slaves. Gleefully working the fields only to go back to the shed at night alone while their wives and daughters get penetrated by their kindly owners. Got it.

    Ya know what, Clivern’s going to have a resurgence. He’s daring to espouse the racist screed that they all believe, and he’ll become an Ollie North ruralist asswipe hero once again for that. “Straight talk” from the butthole bigot, which they all adore. And that is good for us, so he needs to keep it up. Somebody give him an award, invite him on your show, let him address upcoming graduation ceremonies.

  2. "I'm wondering: Are they happier now under this government subsidy system than they were when they were when they were (sic) slaves and they was (sic) able to (sic) their family structure together and the chickens and the garden and the people have something to do? (sick, sick, sick)" -- Cliven Bundy

    Not only doesn’t this cowbilly know when to stop digging, he can’t even speak coherently. Can anyone explain to me what this quote even means?

    (BTW, Bundy has 13 children. Those people just breed like rabbits!)

  3. The porch is full of young children but they abort their babies? “They put their young men in jail.” Who the fuck is “they”? Does this moron have any idea how inane his sick bullshit is? Clive can “see in their faces” that Negros were happier as slaves because they had purpose and family life.

    If I mail $1,000 to the Bureau of Land Management, will they send out a drone to rid the world of this racist piece of shit?

  4. “Those people” meaning fundamentalist Mormons, right? :wink:

  5. You raise a valid point, Captain. By “those people”, I meant only to parody right-wing Anglos who can’t grasp the irony of their own racist rants. I should’ve articulated my snark better…
