Cliven Bundy is obliterating Sean Hannity and Fox News by claiming that they still support him, because they are right on, and they understand his racist views.
CNN asked Bundy if he felt abandoned by Fox News. The racist rancher replied, “You know, I don’t think I’ve been abandoned. I think they misunderstood me a little bit. I think Fox and I. I think Hannity and I are right on, and I have no doubt that he would support me if he understood my really what’s in my heart, and I think he does understand me. I don’t think there’s a question there.”
When told that Hannity called him racist, repugnant, and ignorant, Bundy replied, “I hope I’m not that way. I’ll tell you what. I’m not.”
Cliven Bundy is destroying Fox News and Sean Hannity by claiming that they “understand him.” In this respect, Bundy is just like Fox News’ audience. They watch Fox, and shows like Hannity, but those programs reinforce their beliefs. Bundy thinks that Fox believes exactly what he does, because this is exactly the message that the network delivers to their viewers every single day.
Hannity has been trying to run away from Bundy as fast as he can, but Bundy isn’t about to let him and Fox News go. Fox News and Hannity did what they always do. They sweet talk people like Cliven Bundy into believing that they are friends. They use people like Bundy to push their anti- government/anti-Obama/racist agenda, but once the truth comes out, they claim no knowledge of anything, and blame their latest hero for it all.
Fox News and Hannity had to have known about Bundy’s beliefs. His dispute with the federal government has been going on for more than two decades. They are the ones who gave Cliven Bundy a national platform. Fox News and Hannity are responsible for his elevation, and they deserve the blame for promoting racism.
Hannity and Fox News can’t run away from Cliven Bundy. Fox News and Sean Hannity have spent the entire Obama presidency promoting racism, but now that have a racist stain in Cliven Bundy they can’t wipe away.
