Going even further, Bullock confirmed he would “take a bullet for that man,” concluding he looks up to Bundy “just like I do my own grandfather.”
When asked why he holds the rancher in such high regard, Bullock had no trouble answering. “I believe in his cause,” he replied, “and after having met Mr. Bundy a few times, I have a really good feel about him. And I’m a pretty good judge of character.”
Another black soldier, a U.S. Marine calling himself Charlie Delta, penned an open letter in defense of Bundy. In part, he explained:
One thing he definitely isn’t – a racist. I found his comments to not only be NOT racist, but his own view of his experiences. Who the heck are we to determine another man’s perspective on the world around him?! Just because Picasso’s view of the world was abstract, does it negate the fact that his art was genuine?
