Kevin Williamson of The National Review, who compared Cliven Bundy to Mahatma Gandhi, defended his comments during an email exchange with Talking Points Memo and said that Bundy is actually like the heroes of the Alamo.
“Mr. Bundy’s racial rhetoric is lamentable and backward,” Williamson said in an email. “It is also separate from the fundamental question here, which is the federal government’s acting as an absentee landlord for nine-tenths of the state of Nevada.”
“I very strongly suspect that most of the men who died at the Alamo held a great many views that I would find repugnant; we remember them for other reasons.”
Does this make the Bureau of Land Management the Mexican army?
Williamson compared Bundy to Gandhi last week in a piece titled The Case for a Little Sedition.
