RNC Spokesman on Cliven Bundy: Conservatives Are the Real Victims
The Republican National Committee’s top spokesman, Sean Spicer, appeared on CNN today and said yeah, sure, Cliven Bundy’s racist comments were very very bad, but conservatives are the real victims here.
“I think the comments that Mr. Bundy made with respect to race and other things were inappropriate and wrong, 100 percent out of line and not part of the discourse we need to have,” Spicer said. “But that being said, what I find fascinating as the chief spokesman for the Republican Party is that when a guy has a problem with cattle grazing and has a discussion about the size of the federal government and the overreach of the federal government, makes a comment every reporter calls the Republican National Committee asking for comment.”
Spicer went on to accuse the media of ignoring incidents that involved Democratic politics.
“When similar incidents happen time and time again on the left,” he said, “there is zero coverage. Absolutely zero.”
Hilarious. Spicer somehow forgot to mention the numerous Republican politicians and pundits and radio hacks who, two days ago, were hailing Bundy as the conservative movement’s latest hero.
I suppose it’s a good thing Republicans are now scrambling to disassociate from Bundy, but why were they OK with the militias, threats to kill BLM agents, snipers, sovereign citizens, plans to use women as human shields, etc.?
