The Pigford Scam: Barbour County’s Black Farmers

Eyewitnesses deny existence of 1,800 black farmers in Barbour County, AL


OD Exclusive

BRA’s media is calling Michele Bachmann a racist for having the audacity to attack the Pigford II settlement with “black farmers” as one of the biggest scams of all times.

Just this morning, someone named Johnny W. Boyd – a “civil rights” businessman – who claims to represent the victimized black farmers of America was on CNN claiming that Bachmann was a racist for having the temerity to ask questions.

A clip was played where Michele Bachmann pointed out that there were more claims of USDA racial discrimination than the total number of black farmers in all of America. This suggests that African-Americans are filing fraudulent claims in the hope of receiving a huge government check from BRA’s president, Barack Hussein Obama.

As it turns out, The Dothan Eagle and The Eufaula Tribune are both reporting that 1,700 to 1,800 of these victimized black farmers live in Barbour County, Alabama. In fact, the black farmers of Barbour County are among the leading plaintiffs in this lawsuit.

How strange.

If there were 1,700 to 1,800 black farmers in the rural stretches of Barbour County, Alabama, then surely I would be the first to know about it, as I grew up in that area, spent most of my life there, several members of my immediate family are real peanut farmers, and friends and neighbors are among the biggest landowners in the county.

In Jobs That Black People Hate, we learned that 97.5 percent of the farmers in America are White, while 1.1 percent of farmers are African-Americans – which some “watchdog groups” are calling a “hate statistic.”

In 2011, 1,023 African-Americans were living in Clayton1,399 African-Americans were living in Clio, and 6,589 African-Americans living in Eufaula. The 2010 Census shows 9,011 of 13,742 African-Americans in Barbour County live within the city limits of Eufaula, Clayton, and Clio.

In Barbour County, stereotypes about black farmers are not true, as 13 percent of African-Americans in Barbour County are black farmers who have been discriminated against by the USDA. The African-Americans of Barbour County are 12x more likely to be black farmers than blacks who live elsewhere in the country.

Where are these black farmers? I would like to interview them, snap photos, shoot video, and verify the existence of their farms.

After scouring Barbour County, it brings me great pain to report that I didn’t see any black farmers, although I have seen a handful of African-Americans (perhaps a few dozen) with garden plots over the years. There are a few black field hands who work for White landowners in the county.

Multiple sources who wish to remain anonymous are laughing at the idea that there are anywhere near 1,800 black farmers in Barbour County, Alabama:

(1) Most of the land in Barbour County is owned by a handful of big landowners who know each other.

(2) Most of this land is heavily forested and planted in pine trees or used for cattle ranching.

(3) Some of the land is used to grow sod and peanuts which requires massive irrigation and access to large nearby rivers and creeks. African-Americans don’t have the capital to run such operations.

If there were 1,800 black farmers in Barbour County, then surely the real landowners who mostly grow timber, peanuts, sod, corn, and soybeans in this area would know them. Someone would have spotted them by now at the farmer’s supply stores like Rainbow Farm Center or Tractor Supply.

Why would African-Americans in Barbour County need to engage in agriculture? In 2009, 32 percent of African-Americans were on EBT cards there.

The closest African-Americans and Hispanics come to farming in Barbour County, Alabama is 1.) working a legitimate job as a field hand for a real White farmer or 2.) growing and/or distributing marijuana or the black market.

Come on, seriously … if you were a black farmer, what would you be growing? Peanuts or marijuana?

Hats off to Michele Bachmann and Steve King for standing up to BRA’s media and telling the hateful truth about mythical black farmers trying to defraud taxpayers to get their hands on another welfare check.

  1. Hunter Wallace I implore you please don’t defend Bachmann. The BRA and far-leftist media is so far-leftist it believes that libertarians and neoconservatives are far-right. They call liberal ‘conservatives’ racist, sexist and whatnot all of the time. Bachmann like Glenn Beck is Tea Party libertarian. They aren’t traditional conservatives and only due to far-leftists delusions do they make up these stories. Please don’t fall for their tricks.

  2. Far-leftists are extremely sick. They take a libertarian or a liberal ‘conservative’ and attack them as far-right and what is the effect? Tea Parties are pinned as “radical-right extremists” while mainstream ‘conservatism’ turns ever more liberal. It’s frightening.

  3. The Leftoids are terrified that Bachmann could become the first female PotUS. They’re going to do whatever they have to to tear her down and secure that “historic first” for themselves.

  4. I don’t want Bachmann to be President, but right here and now she’s doing White Americans a service. How often have we been betrayed by some yellow dog groveling to the multi-cult after speaking the truth? When Nobel Laureate Dr James Watson recanted after saying that Africans are dummies, how many of us called him a coward for not sticking by his own words? Let’s be happy if Bachmann plants some seeds of thought, and we can gather the harvest.

  5. Bachmann’s own words:

    MLK Day: “We have come so far as a result of Dr. Martin Luther King’s powerful calls for the U.S. to live out its Declaration of Independence creed that “all men are created equal.” Dr. King challenged us to pursue liberty for all, and as we honor his legacy today we renew our commitment to that pursuit.”

    Diversity: “How unique in all of the world, that one nation that was the resting point from people groups all across the world,” she said. “It didn’t matter the color of their skin, it didn’t matter their language, it didn’t matter their economic status.”
    “Once you got here, we were all the same. Isn’t that remarkable?” she asked.
    Foreign Policy: “I am convinced in my heart and in my mind that if the United States fails to stand with Israel, that is the end of the United States . . . [W]e have to show that we are inextricably entwined, that as a nation we have been blessed because of our relationship with Israel, and if we reject Israel, then there is a curse that comes into play. And my husband and I are both Christians, and we believe very strongly the verse from Genesis [Genesis 12:3], we believe very strongly that nations also receive blessings as they bless Israel. It is a strong and beautiful principle.”
    “I have been a long time supporter of Israel. The first time I went to Israel was the day I graduated from high school. I spent a summer working on Kibbutz Be’eri near Beer Sheva in 1974. I’ve been 4 times in Israel – 3 times as a Member of Congress. I loved Israel – from the moment I first landed.
    As a young girl from Anoka, I was shocked at the level of security in Israel.
    We worked on the kibbutz from 4 am to noon. We were always accompanied by soldiers with machine guns. While we were working, the soldiers were walking around looking for land mines. I really learned a lot in Israel.
    I was delighted to go back as a Member of Congress, and see all the changes. To see how it has developed – it is nothing short of a miracle! To see a rose bloom in the desert. In 60 years, Israel has achieved first world, or nearly first world, status.
    I am honored to be in a position where I can help Israel. I have a tremendous love for Israel, and great admiration for the Israeli people. I am a Christian, but I consider my heritage Jewish, because it is the foundation, the roots of my faith as a Christian.
    On Iran:
    Iran is a very serious situation. With each day that we’ve failed to have sanctions, our choice is more difficult. Iran has been an aggressor. It has been unwilling to deal diplomatically with the issue. We need to be apprised [of the situation] and not underestimate the intent of the leaders [of Iran] to do damage to the United States and our friend Israel.
    Israel has always been a friend to the United States, and in the United States, it is in our best interest to maintain that stability, for democracy.”


  6. It’s a good thing that Bachmann has attacked the Pigford scam.

    That’s one of the few good things I can say about her though. She also plans to vote against raising the debt ceiling. A good stance.

    This post wasn’t about Bachmann’s position on Israel or American foreign policy or any other subject but Pigford. I’m not paying much attention to the 2012 presidential race.

  7. It is great that Michele Bachmann is addressing this issue. She has more balls than most other European American congressman on this particular domestic issue.

  8. What about Pigford? Several months ago the net was ablaze with stories that very, very damming materials would be present to a House Subcommittee. This wonderful thing said to because the R’s were in control ( my eyes started to roll ) The multi-bucks racially tainted Pegford scam seems to have gone down the drain, as most things do.
    What happened? There is more value in pushing Pigford then an exegesis of Bachmann or any of the other clowns.

  9. Once again, it appears this blog is attracting people who are more interested in radical rhetoric than results. Nothing less than Michelle Bachman giving a “Pierce” style speech, and promptly being run out of office, will satisfy them. The Tea Party is a real threat to cutting off the monstrous free money machine for minorities, people who put the radical rhetoric first never get beyond making podcasts in their basement obsessing over Israel, an issue doesn’t resonate amongst the average American facing real problems in their everyday life.

  10. ‘I’m going to vote her just because she makes liberals crazy.’

    There is something to this line of thought.

    When the Republican re-took congress in 2010 it sent liberals up the wall hysterical! I certainly don’t care for the current crop of Neo-con Rockefeller Republican slaves to Israel (Sen. Rand Paul being an obvious exception) but if just voting Republican can create that kind of a reaction in liberals, it may be something to think about doing.

  11. I am glad that bachmann exposed the black farmers scam. We all knew what it was about already (4:20) but it is funny how they are now calling her a raysi$$ for revealing an embarrassing truth. Global minority is right, however, she may be slandered now but she is not really a racialist. Voting for her may be an option for some, but I will cast a vote for Mr. R. Paul, then wait for the liberal gestapo to come get me and put me in tolerance concentration camp. We will have to wait and see how things turn out, if she has strong support, she could defeat BHO/BS. I find it interesting how things are dividing up, israel on one side, iran on the other. I don’t want yemen, libiya, nor iran to get bombed. Bring the troops home! Which, of course, they will never do because the soldiers might start defending our borders, and DHS considers them more terroristic than muslim jihadis.

  12. Government offers these insane free windfalls to anyone willing to show up and swear they’re a farmer, and then acts surprised when the program becomes a ripoff.

    This is why many groups are now openly hostile to the idea of government: it becomes a wealth redistribution scam that favors parasites of all races.

  13. You cave dwelling, abnormal albino degenerative, are just plain pathetic. Too late to fear, due to your precious flat-butt queens craving with the utmost desire, and running after every big African cock she could find, your puny, diseased ethic behinds will soon be wiped like a feces smeared rear-end, out of the corridors of time. The African has always been the Majority, and the European the Minority. You lied and schemed, all through-out history, tried to wipe as much of it as you could. This only resulted in your own kind living a complete ignorant lie. There is nothing that the European has given global society, but deceit, lies, thievery and murder. He has no culture of his own, the Romans and Greeks gave nothing to the world that they did not steal from the Egyptians. The list is long, Christianity was an African religion, that you whitewashed, and there is no Christ, the god is Ra, the Sun god of Egypt. You stole the medical science, the arts, the highly advanced mathematics, engineering, architecture, everything from the African-Black-Egyptians, and still are trying to turn them white. Africans were the first ones in the Americas, there are no darned Indians, they were Africans, and the offspring’s of Moors + Olmecs +Asians. To hide it from history, you named them Indian, and then rounded up as many as you could catch to sell as slaves around the world. The rest you killed, but you could never wipe them all out. You people are like a disease upon the face of this planet, even until today, and you wonder why everyone in the world hates America’s guts. On this thread, you know the Pigford has nothing to do with farmers of today, it had to do with farmers back in the day, when lazy behind albinos stayed their behinds in and close to the towns, and the Africans made a living, farming and share-cropping way out in the woods. They had to buy seed and supplies, and just like today, the banks were just like you individuals on this thread, bias and denying them loans for no other reason than the melanin in their skin. You pretend to hate us, yet you continue to try and be us, stay out of the sun, you will never get this gift of melanin that we have. You are destined to die out; your time is up…..rot well…

  14. Bobby Taylor: Are you a member of Malachi Yorks Group who got stung by Feds in Georgia? We are all slaves to the Khazar Ruling Elite in their New World Order Global Plantation. Read about the Black Nobility (Who are not African Blacks). Look on You Tube: Tom Metzger Addresess New Black Panther Party. Also read about Robert Brock of Self Determination Committee who has spoke at White Nationalist Meetings.

  15. “Bobby Taylor,” if that is his real name, must have escaped from the nuthouse.
    If he makes it to the polls, I can guess how he will vote.
    I doubt that he is a part of the Pigford scam but many more rational people are.
    I have talked with many Pigford plaintiffs. I would not represent them. The whole case is a scam.
    People, who otherwise seem to be Christian, do not hesitate to lie to get some of the black farmers’ money. Lawyers, both white and black, are helping them compose their lies. I seriously doubt that in Barbour County any black farmer was ever denied a loan by the USDA because of his race. Few can prove that they ever applied for a USDA loan. Few can prove that they ever farmed at all. Not only are crooked lawyers encouraging these people to lie, but the US Government is also encouraging the lies. The US Government will not allow USDA personnel to look up records to contradict the lies. In Court, they say that files were not kept. Anyone who knew Bob Cash knew that he kept detailed files of everything at the Clayton USDA office. They also knew that he went the extra mile to help black farmers — what few there were.

  16. If there were really 1,800 black farmers in Barbour County, then I should easily be able to find them. I have been unable to locate their farms. I haven’t met any real landowners in Barbour County who have ever seen these black farmers.

    It’s funny because this story really hits home. The closest thing to a black farmer that I have ever seen in Barbour County are field hands who work on the sod farms and a handful of old black people who have gardens.

    Why doesn’t The Eufaula Tribune go out and try to find the black farmers who have been discriminated against by the federal government? Probably because we all know that there aren’t anywhere near that many black farmers in Barbour County and Al Sharpton and friends would come here and stir up trouble if the truth were reported.

    Check out Harvest of Lies by our friend Louis March:

  17. Of course there are not that many black farmers in Barbour County … now.
    The relevant period for the class was after 1980 and before 1997. The 1999 class action had some issues, an you’d probably like some of my criticisms, as I lean rather pachwards rather than donkwards, but Bachman was quite off-base. The President’s settlement is, if anything, significantly under-inclusive rather than over inclusive in part because this thing is legally quite tangled, but this thing got started again thanks to Charles Grassley, R-IA, when the Donks needed his vote to over-rode W.’s veto of the pork-o-rama that was the 2008 Farm Bill. He was able to insert something to handle “late filers” who got hosed in the earlier “late-filing period” as part of the price of his voting against a president of his own party.
    there was some ambiguity as to what a late filer was. The solution is in some ways generous, in some ways bureaucratically blinkered. Hope that clears it up a bit.
    A lot of attorneys who come into contact with this thing have great difficulty sussing it out.

  18. If there were 1,800 black farmers in Barbour County from 1980 to 1997, isn’t it reasonable to assume that the real farmers who live in the area would know them and that the locations of their farms would be known to the people who lived in the rural parts of that county?
