BIG PICTURE turns an honest comment about how we mistreat people, into a crime.
The BIB PICTURE guru has bought into using the trick word 'racist' which is designed to inflame people or defame them.
It is a pity that RT puts out this kind of drivel that is part of the problem and not the solution.
The BIG PICTURE says it is pro-democracy.
D emocracy is just a trick that the super-rich play to get us to support plundering our neighbors to enrich the super-rich who control the media and tell us lies 24 hours a day.
... has more to do with Bundy's concern, kind words and support of the illegal Mexicans that the Teaparty and Repubs love to hate and blame for everything. The TP and Repubs have NEVER turned on someone for racist remarks, BUT they can not be seen to be supporting someone that speaks kindly of Hispanics. While Bundy did use a bad choice of words, IMO they were not spoken from the heart of a racist.
But, people will hear what they want to hear.
Of course they weren't. He meant it from a historical PoV, not as a racist. THAT, Thom, is why you should be ashamed.
when is RT going to sack this shill so he can go back to kissing barry obumas but
Thom, you really are Rachel Maddow, you look and sound like her, why RT even lets your disinfo stain such an otherwise unbiased media companies good reputation I cant understand.
After my own research and watching the unedited video, IMO the reason FOX Rand Paul and the others are jumping at the chance to scream their disgust for Bundy has more to do with Bundy's concern, kind words and support of the illegal Mexicans that the Teaparty and Repubs love to hate and blame for everything. The TP and Repubs have NEVER turned on someone for racist remarks, BUT they can not be seen to be supporting someone that speaks kindly of Hispanics. While Bundy did use a bad choice of words, IMO they were not spoken from the heart of a racist.

Bundy was the super hero of Fox News and the teaparty DC crowd and followers until this interview. For the most part the so called left disagreed with Bundy and used most of their propaganda time spewing their disgust with Bundy and his supporters. The country was somewhat split on the Bundy issue, so TPTB had half the battle won and needed something that would force his supporters to turn on him. IMO, the racist comments have nothing to do with FOX and the TP DCers to turn on him. That is just an "honorable" ; excuse they use, to appear concerned about the civil rights of anyone other then themselves .
I agree with JaKa. I will be honest, I am not a fan of Bundy. However I am a fan of the truth and facts and in the case of this Bundy video, 99.9% of the media rate 100% failure. Including Thom. SMH When propaganda, whoops, I mean a 'story' like this breaks and it takes off like a rocket and all sides of the US political and media readers are reading from the same script, using the same source(s), I know from experience to research the issue myself .
What did Bundy do to cause the Teaparty Politicans to throw him under the bus so fast? If you believe a racist remark, you need to wake up.
Shame on you Thom for bashing the Militia, i signed up just to let you know the militia are the only reason you have the availability to speak you mind. Shame on you sir i have lost all respect i just watched your segment on the Clive Bundy and you had to bash the militia. Read history and appropriate your sence of freedom when you have the opportunity to express you words on public tv. You lost my respect and would like an apology. Not to me but the right minded non extrem non anti any militia members that are exercising their second amendment right. Go fly a kite off a short peer.
Thom Hartmann, you lost respect in my eyes. For one, you are the one that actually tries to objectively see the situation. Hence you should understand what Mr Bundy meant. I'm not from USA, and am apolitical, but this segment what you did, is worse than liberal mass media bought by corporations.
African-american people WERE better off when they were slaves, compared to today. SAME goes for poor white folk. Government can't save us (any govt). We need to keep the politicians under scrutiny, and you failed to do that with this segment.
Po or performance, sir. Poor.
You should be ashamed.
How about a law demanding a minimum charitable donation must be made by workers?
Go vts have ruined the world. Socialists like hartmann are too foolish and piggish to see that.
How much does RT pay this liar?
I will expect an apology for you ignorance when you haven't even researched the video. It is just more creative video editing and race baiting done by Media Matters!!!!!
