It appears that Sean Hannity may have finally met his very own Trash Can Man.
In an amazing interview with CNN’s Bill Weir (in which Weir explained using very small words that Sean Hannity doesn't like him, never liked him, and the only reason he gave him that stupid valentine is because nobody else would! Also the locks have all been changed. Also Sean's Mommy said they couldn't have no more sleepovers.) Free Range Moocher and former Fox News Superfriend, Cliven Bundy, continued to stand by his man.
Because, damn it, that's what Fox News patriots do!
"I don’t think I’ve been abandoned. I think maybe they misunderstood me a little bit,” Bundy said. “But I think Fox and I, I think, Hannity and I are just right on. I have no doubt that he would support me if he understood really what’s in my heart. And I think he does understand me.”
When told that Hannity had called him many mean names, Bundy responded with this airtight bigot logic:
“I hope I’m not that way. I’ll tell you what, I’m not.”
And then, this:
Weir suggested it was ironic that Bundy often spoke about those who are dependent on the government when he has been grazing cattle on federal land, and said some might call him a welfare queen. Bundy responded, “I might be a welfare queen.”
At which point were I Weir, I would have dropped the mic and left. Boom! What more is there to say?
But Weir kept the interview going and caught the most revealing gem of all -- the fact that, because pig-ignorant Conservative racists like Bundy sincerely believe the Godawful shit they have roiling around in their heads, they are genuinely baffled that people shun and run when they start belting out their free-verse tributes to The Turner Diaries.
Bundy, though, continued to back his comments on race, saying that he doesn’t understand why people are so upset and that his comments were “from the heart.”
This is why I refer to Bundy as "The Grand Dragon of the Tribe That Rubs Shit In Their Hair". Because, with the eager assistance of Fox News and Hate Radio, Conservative bigots like Bundy have not only been encouraged to construct, furnish and take up residence in an all-encompassing and completely deranged ideology, they have been repeatedly assured by Fox News and Hate Radio that their batshit bar-stool sociology and unhinged paranoia are, in fact, deeply patriotic, Christian opinions which are shared by the majority of their countrymen and which they should proselytize proudly.
From Bundy's perspective, he has been the model Conservative citizen. To misquote Proverbs, Hate Radio trained him up in the way he should go, and when he got old he did not depart from it.
He dutifully honored his Conservative media Mommy and Daddy and in return they made him a star and put him in from of a camera night after night to bring the people the Good News.
Yay! Just like the Bible foretold!
Then, one day, there he was professing his sincere Conservative faith just as he'd been taught, when Mommy and Daddy suddenly freaked out for no explicable reason. They started yelling at him. They called him terrible names. And then they piled him into the car, drove him out into the middle of the dark forest and abandoned him to the witches and the wolves and the Liberals.
Finally, this is just wonderful. Go check it out -- "Cliven Bundy, born on a Monday..."I thought about what Reverend Martin Luther King said. I thought about Rosa Park taking her seat at the front of the bus. Reverend Martin Luther King did not want her to take her seat in the front of the bus. That wasn't what he was talking about. He did not say go to the front of the bus and that's where your seat was. What Reverend King wanted was that she could sit anywhere in the bus and nobody would say anything about it. You and I can sit anywhere in the bus. That's what he wanted. That's what I want. I want her to be able to sit anywhere in the bus and I want to be able to sit by her any where in that bus. That's what he wanted. He didn't want this prejudice thing like the media tried to put on me yesterday. I'm not going to put up with that because that's not what he wanted. that's not what I want. I want to set by her anywhere on that bus and I want anybody to be able to do the same thing. That's what he was after, it's not a prejudice thing, but make us equal....I took this boot off so I wouldn't put my foot in my mouth with the boot on. Let me see if I can say something. Maybe I sinned and maybe I need to ask forgiveness and maybe I don't know what I actually said. But you know when you talk about prejudice, we're talking about not being able to exercise what we think and our feelings. We're not freedom — we don't have freedom to say what we want. If I call — if I say 'negro' or 'black boy' or 'slave,' I'm — If those people cannot take those kind of words and not be offensive, then Martin Luther King hasn't got his job done yet. They should be able to — I should be able to say those things and they shouldn't offend anybody. I didn't mean to offend them.
