Even with the edited version, I just don't understand what Bundy said that was wrong. Social welfare HAS enslaved blacks. And not just blacks, people of ALL color and ALL walks of life. But without a doubt, blacks have probably felt the brunt of the mental coercion which in Bundy's opinion and MY opinion, too, is in some ways WORSE than slavery.
And when you talk to a man like Bundy, a man who you could characterize as salt of the earth, you really can't expect to hear the same wording that comes out of the mouth of a George Will. You're going to hear the words coming straight out of his heart completely unfiltered, just like he said it was.
And now I hear Hannity has condemned Bundy. Well, this is very telling. We now know that not only have Conservatives lost any control of the debates - any debates of whatever you want to list - but we have found ourselves on the Left's side. There has been a MENTAL SHIFT to agree with Leftist's on their reasoning.
This all tells me that the Conservative movement is a lost cause.
Here is the unedited version of his interview. He praises Hispanics. He talks about the WATTS riots praising the fact that blacks are better off now and "we're sure we don't want to go back". That, in my opinion, is not the remark of an avowed racist. He goes on to praise Hispanics and didn't seem to have any problems with them being here illegally. That doesn't sound racist to me. In fact, he sounds to the left of a lot of conservatives.
What I see is Leftist destruction of a man with a heart of gold.
But...then what do others say who know him?
So, this all tells me it is all Leftist character assassination.
