I will not make light off him, and give him a LOT of credit and respect for that...and believe despite whatever level of sophistication you think he lacks, that he can see more clearly than the vast majority.
He is speaking because the issue about his Ranch is close and personal. He has every right to do so, whether you happen to think he is eloquent enough or educated enough to do so.
He represents the core of the working and free people in this nation...that counts for a wjole lot with me.
So he does have nobody to blame but himself.
He is doing all he can to defend what he views as his way of life and freedom.
And...his comments on blacks and Mexicans have what to do with that exactly?
Folks who ranch all of their lives are not what you may consider "sophisticated," but they can generally spot a ringer from a mile off, and he knows down trodden people when he sees them.
Then his vision failed on this one.
I had viewed CNN just a half an hour ago. I saw Wolf Blitzer with two persons. One was a Paul Begala. Sickened, I turned it off. They were going full tilt on the racism aspect.
I hope to be excused a digression on the subject here. One word has in the past been used to utterly and completely destroy people who got in someone's way. Today it is "Racist". The word "Nazi" is also used, but with hardly the same effect.
At another time in history, there was an Inquisition. Their power was absolute. The word used at that time to destroy and render a person to torture or death was "Heretic". I would describe people like the Nevada politician, Harry Reid and the Begala type as Inquisitors.
Merciless opportunists to say the least.
Sorry for the length but it’s almost impossible to deal with this topic in the 30 second attention span of the distressingly “average” voter today.
Thank you GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS AND TELEVISION.
But he didn't. Nobody held a gun to his head and forced him to hold his presser and say what was on his mind. So he has nobody to blame but himself.
And gave a dumb answer. Lesson one should be don't talk to reporters. Lesson two should be if you ignore lesson one then restrict your comments to your problem with the BLM and keep your socialogical observations to yourself.
How could chattel slavery be preferable to anything?
There is, and there is nothing to be served by running in terror when the media accuses us of being racist for daring to mention it.
Bravo on seizing the initiative and putting the focus where it belongs. I only wish we could get the NY Times to publish what you have said here.
I only with more people responded reasonably put the onus back on the liberals and the government instead of thowing Bundy under the bus and backing over him.
The Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton answer to all these rates is white man and his slavery. Jessie and Al will refuse to note that slavery rates are extremely high in the Middle East and Africa today and the Muslims, both Arab and Black, are the instigators. It is always someone else’s fault. Black have had 50 years or more of free government hand outs and have allowed themselves to become slaves to the federal government for these handouts.
Jeff, forgive me the cut and paste from another thread.
I guess you havent heard. Beck and others have declared Bundy is just a reprehensible racist and probably deserves what the BLM was about to do to him.
Incredible! Frankly, I could give a rats ass. Well, that is a bit overstated. Still, it strikes me that this gentleman was willing to put his and his sons lives on the line. Not just willing but actually DID. To abandon him because the NY Slimes brands him racist seems to me to be ungrateful. God Forbid the gummint come for me and Beck discovers I am a smoker. OMG, and I brew beer, too. Worse, I dont pay tax on my smokes! I grow my own.
Yes he did.
If he started carping, on TV, about Sheriff Arpaio and Hussein’s forged BC, then Hussein would face a choice:
Abandon the Bundy Ranch episode (and leave Bundy alone).
Let an elderly rancher sit on TV every day raising awareness about the Cold Case Posse and their upcoming revelations on Obama Fraud.
Either way is a win for Bundy. Would the ‘win’ be decisive? My crystal ball cannot know.
Beck can kiss my ass. I no longer listen to him. I no longer pull up his paper. As far as I am concerned, Glen Beck does not exist. The issue is not Bundy and never was. The issue is, can the Government use its power to murder a legal landowner and his family and then give said property to a powerful and in my opinion a crooked and corrupt politician. And much to my disgust, the answer, from an all too many on this forum is a resounding yes.
h it will not be on TV unless its heavily edited to make him look bonkers
nobody said it was
“It will not be on TV unless its heavily edited to make him look bonkers.”
Probably correct for MSM outlets.
Web, maybe not.
Other than Bundy. He wondered if it wasn't better than they had now.
Bookmark for later read.
He needed to realize, and it is hard to comprehend at times, that a person of his position and visibility to the national media needs to have someone well versed in what to say in public and what not to say. In other words - he needs a good PR firm.
In world governed by lies and wishful thinking, telling the truth is a radical act and will get you trouble.
