Correction On What Julian Bond Said About Republicans.

Julian Bond is now claiming that he did not call Republicans Nazis and that he has been targeted by right winged reports like World Net Daily who lies about what he said.

Well, to be fair to Julian Bond I found an audio copy of his speech that was posted by the Fayetteville Observer Online. Here it is so you can listen for yourself to exactly what he said.

As it turns out Julian Bond did not directly compare the Republican Party with the Nazi Party but, nevertheless, associated the GOP with what he called the Confederate "swastika.

According to the tape what Bond said was, Republicans' "idea of equal rights is the American flag and the Confederate swastika flying side by side."

It was also reported last week Bond characterized Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and her predecessor, Colin Powell, as tokens.

According to the tape, Bond said, “The Bush administration likes to use former Secretary of State Colin Powell and current Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as kinds of human shields against any criticism of their record on civil rights. After all, they're proud of saying their administration is more diverse than any in history."

Yes, it is the most diverse administration in history. I would just like to thank Julian Bond for pointing out that the Bush Administration has done more for the advancement of colored people than the NAACP.
