    Oh please. Argument by Hypothetical is a pretty lame tactic, especially a hypothetical that asinine.

    Does it bother you? Isn't it more vile than what Bundy was supposedly accused of saying?
    Again, I've read the ENTIRE interview, even in context its racist. I haven't read one news story covering this that didn't acknowledge the racism of the remark. Not only the times.

    I haven't read any news stories about it, but I can see how easy it would be to edit out a few paragraphs and make it seem ridiculously racist rather than mildly so.

    I had trouble finding a full video, but this starts well before the infamous remark. Even though this is a video meant to clear him of racism, you can judge for yourself. I find it offensive to propose slavery is good for anyone

    You dodged that question and threw a tantrum instead.
    No tantrum...absolute fact. You offered a fantasy scenario. Plain and simple fact is that if it involves inner city gangs you wouldnt say **** about it, this administration wouldnt do anything about it, and IF they sent in an armed response you would be ****ting yourself over the inappropriate nature of the response.

    You still haven't said what you'd do about it. So I'm just going to assume like any reasonable person you'd want the police to restore law and order, as would I, so why shouldn't the police enforce the law and restore law and order the area surrounding and including Cliven Bundy's ranch?

    To clarify.

    I have not read a news article about the statements of Bundy, but I HAVE heard what I believe is the full audio/video, and I have also read a transcript of same.

    No, you missed it, it was just then.
