All In Agenda: Race and politics at the Bundy Ranch


1. Even Cliven Bundy’s staunchest supporters are up in arms over the Nevada rancher’s racist remarks

“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?” Bundy said in remarks first reported by the New York Times. “They didn’t get no more freedom. They got less freedom.”

Nevada political journalist Jon Ralston and MSNBC Political Analyst and Georgetown University Professor Michael Eric Dyson join us.

2. Next up: The Great Cliven Bundy Walk-Back of 2014. Sens. Dean Heller, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, and Texas gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott are changing their tune in light of Bundy’s comments. Karen Finney, host of MSNBC’s ”Disrupt” and former Director of Communications for the DNC, joins us.  

3. Then: Actor Tim Simons, star of “VEEP,” talks politics and satire with Chris Hayes. 

4. Plus: Race in the Obama era. We’re taking a close look at the link between racism and the anti-government rhetoric we’ve been seeing around the country. Christina Greer, Assistant Professor of Political Science at Fordham University, MSNBC Contributor Sam Seder, Host of “Majority Report,” and Robert George, Editorial Writer for the New York Post join us to discuss.
