Harry Reid, Once Criticized For Racist Comments, Condemns Rancher For His Racist Remark

Posted on April 25, 2014

Democratic Senate majority leader Harry Reid on Thursday strongly condemned Cliven Bundy, a constituent and rancher in Nevada, for his widely-reported offensive comments about African-Americans.

“Today, Bundy revealed himself to be a hateful racist,” Reid said in a statement provided by his office.

The New York Times reported on a recent rant by Bundy, who mused about what he referred to as “the Negro.” He has been in the news recently over his clash with the Bureau of Land Management over grazing fees.

Discussing a public-housing project in Nevada, Bundy said of black people: “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.”

A number of politicians, including Reid, criticized Bundy for his comments.

“To advance his extreme, hateful views, Bundy has endangered the lives of innocent women and children,” the Nevada senator said.

Reid has found himself in a media firestorm over racial comments before. In 2010, the book “Game Change” reported that Reid had praised President Obama, before he was elected, as someone who is “light skinned” and has “no Negro dialect.”

Following an uproar over those comments, Reid apologized.

  1. Harry Reid's comment is just sour grapes. The BLM was going to kick Bundy out so Reid could give the land to some Chinese green energy developers who would milk the US taxpayer and line Reid's pocket….all while not producing any cost-effective energy of course.

  2. Dingy harry has long been recognized by the American Citizenry to be bankrupt of all moral authority to deliver any criticism of anyone outside the reflection of dingy's mirror, should he dare stand in front of it.

    The New York Times should submit a written public apology for erroneously editing Cliven's remarks. If I were Cliven, I would sue the New York Time BIG! They of course do not know what the word "TRUTH" means so anyone who reads their propaganda Pravda has to be rather ignorant and uninformed of truth also. ..my personal opinion of course.

  5. erroneously editing? Try deliberately falsifying Bundy's own words to make him say what he did not, in order to discredit Bundy's integrity. NYT should be sued for libel. And fined a while pile of money.

  6. Reid is just running up the volume on his tantrum rant agsinst this honest hardworking man who happens to be in Reid's way of reaping large cash rewards in result of making him (Bundy) go away. Reid is all about Reid's benefit, and if that can better be served by destroying his main pain, so what.

  7. Bean Bagger says:

    LOL! Liberals are hypocrites is well-known. In fact that is all they know in order to hide their agendas of LYING all the time.

    BTW, Negroes were happier back then. I read an autobiography of a preacher that lived about a 100 years ago and he said he never saw Negroes more happier than they are now.

    So, Mr. Bundy is really right since he was there before liberals decided to practice racism by looking down on Negroes.

  8. Holy Shirt says:

    If Bundy is Mr. Big-Ott, 'Hairy Raid' (with his greedy, selfish super-ego) must be Mr. Big Id-I-Ott !

  9. This is the beginning of the end of freedom in the USA we had for years and years. Reid is just a Liberal word for GREED. To much power in the hands of government is dangerous. Stop it now and vote out incumbents. Dem's and Republicans are all the same. They are out for themselves, damn the US citizens.

  10. How true. Reid is evil, greedy old man. He can say things like the people are terrorist when they do not agree with him He can call others names that is ok. No one seems to go after him for all the corrupt deeds he has done and is doing. Why is he untouchable? He should be removed and jailed.

  11. This is distraction. This is surface noise to take the focus off the real issue. The federal government has so overstepped its bounds, it is ignoring the law, its agents are committing criminal acts, "but you should forget about all that because someone heard Cliven Bundy use the 'N'-word once!" They don't want people to know about the Enclave clause of the Constitution and the restrictions placed on the federal government for just the abuses it is committing today.

  12. F Harry Reid and the horse he road in on.!!! little parsimonious creep.

  13. Cattle rancher, Cliven Bundy is accused of racism for this comment: ". . . 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."
    Actually, it sounds like Mr. Bundy is on the same page as abolitionist Horace Greely, who said: "We have stricken the shackles from 4,000,000 human beings and brought all labourers to a common level, but not so much by the elevation of former slaves as by reducing the whole working population, white and black, to a condition of serfdom. While boasting of our noble deeds, we are careful to conceal the ugly fact that by our iniquitous money system we have manipulated a system of oppression which, though more refined, is no less cruel than the old system of chattel slavery."

  14. Is it a strange coincidence that the other ranchers in the area who called it quits after harassment by government agencies and left, their lands are now registered as part of the Reid Family Trust?

  15. marjorie says:

    maybe the dailycaller.com should also post the full comment made by Mr Bundy. Then there could be a true discussion on "racist" so called remarks.

  16. Reid is a racist as are most progressive democrats but they and Reid try to hide it because they need minorities as a dependent group to get votes and maintain power.
