Cliven Bundy recently broke with the GOP to join the Independent American Party, and a new ad for Kamau Bakari of the IAP reveals the insane nature of his new friends. Bundy joined Bakari, a real, live black person, to complain about African-Americans some more — and it’s, perhaps, one of the more insane Bundy-related happenings to date.
The ad kicks off with footage of Eric Holder’s “Nation of Cowards” speech, in which Holder spoke of increasing racial tensions in America, with Bundy and Bakari blasting the soon-to-be former Attorney General. Bundy shared more of his “wisdom” about “the Negro,” as well.
“I know Black folks have a had a hard time with, uhhh…slavery,” Bundy said. and you know, the government was in on it. And the government’s in on it again.” Bundy said he has worked his entire life without mistreating anyone, and he should be able to express his opinion — which includes a moronic belief that black people were better off picking cotton — “without being called names.”
“I hear you, Cliven, and I believe you,” ‘well-behaved black man’ Bakari responded. “A brave white man like you might be just what we need to put an end to this political correctness stuff in America.”
“It’s almost like black folks think white folks owe them something,” Bundy responded in this heavily-scripted attempt to cater to the hateful, far-right crowd.
“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?”
Bakari, a heavy underdog who will be lucky to snag 1% of the vote, must really want to get himself elected if he is willing to side with a racist rancher who believes black people all lazily sit on their porches snagging up government money and has been stealing from taxpayers from decades.
