In context he makes a great point: isn’t welfare just another plantation?
Worse than chattel slavery?
Thanks for the ping!
God's speed and blessings to you...and the wonderful peace of our Savior!
The man in the above YouTube video is named Jason Bullock. He is a is a six-year Army veteran who is out in Nevada and has volunteered to serve as one of Cliven Bundy's bodyguards.
As you can see, Jason Bullock is also a black American.
That's what he had to say about Cliven Bundy, early this week, after Bundy's remarks were widly reported, and when CNN interviewed Bullock and asked him if Cliven Bundy's remarks had offended him.
"No, not at all. Mr. Bundy is not a racist.
"Ever since I've been here, he's treated me with nothing but hospitality. He's pretty much treating me just like his own family.
"I would take a bullet for that man if need be. I look up to him just like I do my own grandfather. I believe in his cause and after having met Mr. Bundy, I have a really good feeling about him and I'm a pretty good judge of character."
The media distorts information to the point of social division. Above is a photo of myself and the resilient, often charismatic, and maybe not so tactful Cliven Bundy. Hes a cowboy and a helluva family man, not an orator.
One thing he definitely isnt a racist. I found his comments to not only be NOT racist, but his own view of his experiences. Who the heck are we to determine another mans perspective on the world around him?! Just because Picassos view of the world was abstract, does it negate the fact that his art was genuine?
Furthermore, if you take the time to do your own research, youll find that his statements about some black Americans actually hold weight. He posed a hypothetical question. He said, I wonder IF Hell, Im black and I often wonder about the same about the decline of the black family.
Bottom line is that we are all slaves in this waning republic, no matter our skin color. Mr. Bundy could have used any racial demographic as an example: Native Americans on reservations, whites in trailer parks, etc. He noticed the crippling effects of receiving government assistance and the long term result of accepting handouts.
Its not progress at all. I challenge Sean Hannity, Rand Paul, and others to read my comment and reconsider their position in this matter. Individual liberties are at stake here, yours and mine. THAT is the issue.
Dont let the liberal media and ignoramuses like Glenn Beck and that weasel Harry Reid make you lose sight of the real issue here: The federal government is a burgeoning behemoth and a bully on a once constitutional playground.I sincerely hope you real patriots out there who can see through the smoke.
So what...we all do.
But that does not make him a racist, or a bigot in the least, despite what Bill OReilly, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, and others may think or say. They have ratings and a lot of money riding on how they respond...Cliven Bundy and these two men do not. And yet one of those men feels so strongly about it, that he, a black US Army veteran, would take a bullet for the man. That carries a WHOLE lot more weight with me.
Thank you for sharing your insights, dear Jeff!
Great, informative post Jeff.
Thanks for pinging me to it.
