“I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro…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? 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.” (emphasis added)There's little doubt that the armed right-wing militia / sovereign citizen racists will continue to back Cliven Hoof's lawbreaking because they share his racist views. But what about Rethug politicians who stepped into Cliven's cow pie before checking him out? For example, Texas' Rethug Gov. and LensCrafter model Rick "Oops" Perry, who gave a shout-out to Cliven Hoof and who wants to stoke anti-Federal land management resentment in Texas. Will Oops renounce the racist rancher's statements, or simply pretend he didn't hear them and move on? Bets, anyone?
UPDATE I: We learned that just minutes after posting, Oops declined to denounce Cliven Hoof's racist statements. Ladies and gentlemen, your current crop of Rethuglican Presidential candidates.
UPDATE II: The Fuxers are maintaining radio silence on the Cliven Hoof affair while they figure out how to spin their hero's racism. Surprised?
