Talk radio host Dana Loesch was one of the first professional pundits to defend Bundy, arguing the rancher lacked the media training necessary to clearly express himself without wondering whether black people were better off as slaves.
“He seems to be decrying what big government has done to the black family — which big government has negatively affected not just the black family, but all families regardless of ethnicity — so perhaps he included that in his remarks against big government?” Loesch said.
Loesch expressed “a healthy suspicion” of the New York Times as the source of these comments, and her doubts were echoed by many others displaying varying levels of healthy skepticism.
@SenRandPaul Was Cliven Bundy in on it, or forced to act like a brain dead hillbilly racist at the behest of the Government. Scam?
