Bundy’s Bund—The American Soul

In America in the 1930’s there were supporters, here, of the nascent NAZI Party and its German (although he was Austrian) fascist leader whose name I need not mention.  One could find some supporters of this unmentionable man in an organization that became known here as the German American Bund.  They were surely not the majority of Americans of German or Austrian descent just as the majority of Japanese in this country were loyal Americans but that the German American Bund was present in this nation nonetheless cannot be denied. 

Clive Bundy has an appropriate name because he is now one of the leaders of another bund, similar in philosophical racist nature to the German/American Bund of an earlier era and he is accompanied by other extremist rightwing militia malcontents who support him.  They, do not believe in the federal government unless of course if the White House were occupied by a wingnut nativist or when the federal right wing Supreme Court hands down decisions from the fabulous five justices they happen to love.  Curiously enough before the election of the half African American Barack Obama these right wing white supremacist nationalist hate groups were at an all-time low.  Elect Obama and their membership has exponentially grown.  Threats to the president are now commonplace as the hate they spread courses through the veins of Bundy-like nincompoops as a poisonous snake winds its way into the Nevada desert.

These know nothing English fracturing unable-to-utter-a-grammatically-correct- sentence Cretans should not be given the respect of newsworthy time which simply feeds the insatiable American appetite for sensationalist news and the networks' (Fox comes to mind) desire to make as many billions they can from it.  Bundy’s Bund is an American monstrosity that has as its ideological poetry underpinning a familiar ode in the racist segregationist south before and, indeed, after the Civil War.  It was no surprise Bund Bundy uttered the imbecilic racist “ideas” he did concerning the advantageousness of the institution of slavery to the Negro (his word not mine.)  His pea brain thinks and he says it would have been better for the Negro (again, his word not mine) had slavery not ended so Negroes could exist corncob pipe in hand, on their porch in familial bliss if they only learned how to pick cotton.  I suggest he try slavery himself sometime.  There is plenty of it around the world to test his assumptions.

The only thing more incredulous than what this sewage exporting guttersnipe Bund Bundy says is the number of American misfits who are standing at his side pretending to be Colonial Minutemen, weapons in hand ready to kill a federal government officer at a moment’s notice.  Bundy’s Bund is the reflection of a shameful fact of American life which is still even now in the nation’s blood resurrecting old Civil War canards nearly 150 years after the Union kicked the Confederate racists’ posterior costing us over 600,000 lives. 

Bundy’s Bund thrives on fomenting racist discord and its sidecar of violence.  The networks thrive on the money he makes them.  Shame on his supporter Fox News once again for the lies they perpetrate and the divisiveness they sow.  May Bundy and those idiots who support him slide back into the primordial cesspool soup of life from whence they came so the cancer that exists in our body politic can be exorcised and cleansed from our nation’s soul once and for all!
