After watching that, I've lost all respect for him. Sorry, I'm out.
I'll be honest: I watched that entire video and I didn't see anything wrong with it, relatively speaking. When I prepare myself to watch a video of a musician in a cowboy hat who doesn't trust the government, I expect to hear a lot of Ted Nugent malarky. Dwight was very open to the discussion and he agreed with Piers on a lot of points. He acknowledged that guns are very dangerous and he acknowledged that it is very unlikely that our military would actually attack its own people. He also acknowledged that regular people wouldn't stand much of a chance against the military. Maybe I'm just so entrenched in Red State America down here, but I would LOVE IT if some of the right wingers down here would just admit half of those truths! Dwight was simply stating that he is generally paranoid about the government and he understands why people feel like they need guns. I don't completely agree with him, but I was taken aback by how open minded he was about the interview. I guess I was stereotyping him before I watched it.
