Just admit it:

10 Jan

You were wrong. YOU loved to besmirch Cliven Bundy’s character. You said he was just crazy, a nut, a total dishonest paranoiac. YOU said that this was a a HUGE crime and that he was a turd that fairly should be in jail. You did this with a knowing and self-satisfied smirk on your face, and you heaped aspersions on his head like they were hot coals.

But you were wrong. Wrong, wrong, WRONG! Now ‘fess up to it! You. Were. Wrong.

Now just why should anyone trust you? At long last, why should I trust you? Heck why on earth would you trust yourself? You. Were. Wrong. Now you eat your cold Brussel Sprouts! You. Were. Wrong. Now go, and fly right. We need your considerable talents. Go, and sin no more.

You thought you were oh-so-smart and well informed, but you weren’t. You were just wrong. The least you can do is own up to it. You were not shy about publicly saying that Bundy was just a criminal who was paranoid and that all his worries about “snipers” and such were just delusional. Well, he was right and YOU were wrong. Now justice demands that you admit this as publicly as you smeared him. Come on, make it right–get yourself right.

You can admit you were wrong and apologize as a comment to this post. Come clean. I’ll wait…

Now, given that you were demonstrably and categorically wrong on this, we should ALL wonder if you are also wrong on other things. Are you also wrong about ‘Net Neutrality? About Donald Trump? Tell me, just why should I believe YOU on anything? Are you more reliable than a dog-faced baboon? Huh? I mean, you have incontrovertibly shown that let to your own devices you have feet of clay. It’s time for you to fly right.

Get yourself right!

    Oh…you mean he paid his lawful grazing fees for the past twenty years after all?

    And those photos of his toadies pointing assault rifles at law enforcement officers were fake?

    Thanks for setting the record straight.

      I like you–you are a friend. But you were WRONG about this. Just admit it, YOU were wrong. It’s really not that hard, just come clean.

      Maybe you are being willfully obtuse, but the issue is NOT about his alleged misconduct, it is about civil rights. I mean, do YOU think it was morally OK for the gov’t to lie to convict him because he was guilty anyway? And just how do you know?

      And is armed resistance appropriate to an armed threat of force? Why were there snipers around his property? After Ruby Ridge it would be rather suicidal to ignore such things!

    The story does point out that Bundy broke the law.

    “The government, you see, lied. It withheld evidence. It concealed the truth from the court and from the American people. To say this isn’t to whitewash Bundy’s misdeeds. He broke the law. He defied the government without any legal justification, and his own conduct helped precipitate a crisis that could have led to a horrible tragedy. Bundy was wrong.”

    I wish the government hadn’t botched this case so badly. Bundy’s a nut and deserves jail.

      And just HOW do you know that? Wait, wait–the government said so? And you just believe everything they say notwithstanding reams of evidence to the contrary? Oh.

      But yes, this was badly bungled, I agree. But it’s only NOW that we even know this. Up to now YOU have been defending the gov’t! So are you changing your tune now? And what else has been bungled that we don’t yet know about? Are we going to be saying this very same thing about Mueller come next year?

      Sorry, I’m not a sheep…SHOW me the evidence!
