Rand Paul Shared A Stage With Cliven Bundy

So you recall Cliven Bundy? Did he make you proud as am American regarding his tax evasion defiance of federal officials? Probably so. Did he endear pride as he spoke of black people and "Mexicans?" We hope not, but for some of you we unfortunately know you relished his comments and may share his racism and bigotry neatly bundled as "White Supremacy and Privilege."

Bundy remarks as report by of all media: The Blaze. I believe the Blaze is Glenn Becks internet conservative rag.

The New York Times first reported the controversial comments.
“I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro,” Bundy said Saturday, according to the Times, “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 continued. “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.”
While a bit hard to hear and discern at the 59 second mark of the following video Bundy's self-professed knowledge of "the Negro" ensues. via @YouTube

We will make short work of this screed. 

Rand Paul supporters should address their candidate very visible stage sharing with Cliven Bundy. It is also reported that Paul met privately with the tax evading racist after the stage performance.

Rand Paul aspires to be president of the United States. Yet, he follows a path previously traveled by his father, who is by all measures a closet racist with a history of publication of a newsletter that was one of the most vile of racists documents in US History.  

While Paul "the Younger" has not shown a propensity to meet publicly with white supremacist who affiliate with the Ku Klux Klan and other hate groups, Paul "the Elder" has done so and is reported to continue such associations.

Rand Paul would be president, yet he hob nobs and cohorts with a known and very public tax evader who is by all measures a racist.
