No gently super slow careful with a pal holding the bottling bucket. I was aware of oxidation possibilty just caught between rock and hard place with time and bad equipment

Ok, I wouldn't lose sleep over it. As long as the bottles aren't half full of gunk I bet it will be fine.

You probably oxidized it. It takes a little while for that flavor to show up (I think like a month or 2) so just drink em fast!

A slow careful pour shouldn't have oxidized the beer in any significant way. You should be fine but I expect you'll have way more sediment in the bottles than you prefer.

All you had to do was prime the hose with water .... and start the siphon the old school way ... siphon into a glass until the beer comes out ..
Bigger question is why you put it in secondary ...

I put the siphon tube into the beer as always normally one or two pumps and it drains the beer smoothly into the the tubing and into my bottling bucket. Not sure why the syphoning did not work or how water would have changed anything, I'm just hoping my solution did not ruin this batch I have five months invested in.

Take the pump off .... just use the hose. Don't rely on technology to do what simple applied physics will do for you. Put a racking cane on one end .... fill the whole shooting match with water. Takes a little practice to keep the water in there until you get the racking cane in the beer ... and the other end lower... and in a vessel ... but very cheap ... easy... and nothing is ever going to break down when you need it most. Practice with just water in your fermenter first to get it down. Been brewing since 1985... and have never used another method ... or spent a dime on something that is just going to break or wear out
