Bundy's Black Bodyguard: 'I Would Take A Bullet For That Man' (VIDEO)
CNN - TPM ^ | April 25, 2014 | Catherine Thompson

Posted on 04/25/2014 12:01:13 PM PDT by george76

One of the supporters serving as a bodyguard for Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy during his standoff with federal authorities -- and who also happens to be black -- said he would still "take a bullet for" Bundy after the rancher made racially inflammatory comments.

CNN's Dan Simon noticed Jason Bullock, a six-year Army veteran who serves as one of Bundy's bodyguards, hanging around at the Nevada ranch. Simon asked Bullock whether he found Bundy's remarks about blacks and slavery offensive.

"Mr. Bundy is not a racist," he told CNN. "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," he added. "I believe in his cause and after having met Mr. Bundy a few times, I have a really good feel about him and I'm a pretty good judge of character."

“I believe in his cause and after having met Mr. Bundy a few times, I have a really good feel about him and I’m a pretty good judge of character.”

These statements must drive Liberals such as FOX’s Bill O’Reilly nuts!

I’m done with Glenn Beck, and Hannity is now on my list to avoid.

"racially inflammatory remarks"

He did nothing of the kind. He observed the anger of rioting blacks in the sixties and said, "We don't want to go back there." He said, "Don't tell me [Hispanics] are lazy and don't pay taxes." He expressed regard for their [Hispanic] family life, even if some of his observations might be out-of-date. He sometimes WONDERED if black families were stronger in the days of slavery (very debatable, since slave marriage was illegal in many places); he did not say they WERE stronger, or that we should go back to slavery. But even many blacks say that they are worse off than they were in the sixties.

He observed - with apparent compassion - the aimlessness of life on the government dole. He did not say blacks were lazy, or did not want to work.

I supported and rooted for Bundy, until I read what the MSM reported and how they reported it. his statements regarding blacks. I still supported his cause, but was sadly disappointed.
Then I READ (real words) what he said and in the actual context. Now I cheer him on.
Just search prior posts, earlier in the day, and read the names of CONSERVATIVE African-Americans, who defend what he actually said.
Personal note: Stay the heck away from any unit of the Goebbels School of Journalism..far away. Also better for the blood pressure.

Take that Sean Hannity, Rand Paul, and Glenn Beck.

He obviously doesn’t know what it is like to be Black in America like Beck, O’Really and Hannity do.

Pray America wakes up

The NYT started this, and they obviously played a part in the selective editing and deception. But I reserve my ire for the so-called patriots on FR who without fail run for cover when the heat gets turned up. They are useless. You can’t do any nut-cutting if you won’t even come off the fence.

Bundy is no Bigot—just made to look that way—now we can tell the real conservatives from the Fake ones who like the Conservative title and hat but will not walk the walk when things are hard—Paine warned us against “sunshine patriots” long ago—Now we see Hanity, Beck and BOR fall into their ranks. I thought Beck would stand tall—Glad I didn’t buy his books as I would be forced to burn them.

yes, that was a good lesson for me too.

you always approach any claim by a “journalist” or media personality or politician with degrees of mistrust. everything they say or claim must be vetted, either against the Word of God, your personal prayers, reason, logic, experience, other accounts, gut feeling, bs meter, and/or personal research.

This sh!t isn’t playing out for the left the way it used to.

I imagine even a lot of middle-class, productive, non-violence prone blacks are as fed up as the rest of us.

I welcome THEM as brothers and sisters.

I switched Glenn Beck off this morning, after listening to his radio show for years. He can giggle with Stu, Jeffy and his other pals all he wants.....he’s jumped the shark, and he’s clueless about the facts and underlining issues concerning the struggles of the Bundy family.

As for Hannity, I listened to part of his radio show yesterday. Aside from the standard Bundy condemnations, the rest of the show was better than expected, including an interview with Greg Abbott (I love that guy) and a couple in Colorado who had their home and land taken by big government just because it was a small private parcel in a National Forest.

I'm not with the grammar or spelling police and I'm not pointing at an individual FReeper but it happens on many threads concerning black people.

The word “black” is not capitalized unless it is the first word of a sentence or is someones name, It's a color, an adjective. Many liberal writers capitalize it, please don't fall into their liberal grammatical garbage.

It's like finger nails on a black board , when I see it.

Yes, it's on this thread too.

Hannity needs to man up and admit he fell for the liberal spin and overreacted.

You must admit that Mr. Bundy, at the least, is ineloquent. I don’t believe that Cliven is a bad man either, and all those on Beck, including Glenn, agreed with that sentiment this morning. Personally, I would appreciate Mr. Bundy as a friend, but not a spokesman on my behalf. Bob
