Skip to comments.'Maybe I sinned...maybe I donít know what I actually said': Cliven Bundy Attempts Befuddling Apology

Maybe I sinned and maybe I need to ask forgiveness. Maybe I dont know what I actually said, Bundy said Friday, when asked to defend his opinion that black Americans would be better off as slaves.
I took this boot off so I wouldnt put my foot in my mouth with the boot on, he told CNNs Chris Cuomo, suggesting he was ready to back down and strike a more conciliatory tone.
But that hope was short-lived as Bundy soon dived in to criticize people for being too sensitive.

Don’t go wobbly now.
That ain't what he said. A lie, told often enough, is still a lie.
Who cares? No one watches or pays attention to anyone on CNN.
CNN is losing viewers BUT did you notice the coverage of this by all the other news outlets?
They couldn’t wait to jump on this and then to paint every conservative as racist too
He just fell into another trap—the “I’m Sorry Trap” Ask Paula Deen how that works out. He has lost—It was his own mouth and the MSM that did him in—Wounded—watch as Harry Reid swoops in and has him arrested or killed. That or they will crucify him in the Media—watchas the photoshop him in a KKK Robe with the quote “They (The Negros) were better off as slaves, pickin’ cotton” —He has lost—BUT Let this be a lesson to all Tea Party people—Watch what you say—your words will be twisted—cut and parced to make you look like a Bigot. We have been warned!
the reporter should be fired
It’s like a slow motion train wreck at this point. With leftist clowns (and the sheeple) perception is reality. He needs to realize that the people he’s talking to are NOT his friends, and they DO have an agenda that opposes rebellion against their “god,” the federal government, in any way.
Yeah, a lot of knees jerking out there. Sad to see it with so-called conservatives on tv.
They will not let the man walk this back.
What did Clive actually say to offend anybody!!! Somebody said he said a Racial Slur, but now a days that don’t take much to be called a racist!!!
Let it go. It’s become tiresome to talk about it. He’d better concentrate on his cattle and what the Fed will do to him. I can’t figure out how this became a social issue which has nothing to with his ranch.
He should quit while he’s behind. Don’t talk to any reporters from now on.
I guess this is what he said...
I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro, he said. Mr. Bundy recalled driving past a public-housing project in North Las Vegas, and in front of that government house the door was usually open and the older people and the kids and there is always at least a half a dozen people sitting on the porch they didnt have nothing to do. They didnt have nothing for their kids to do. They didnt have nothing for their young girls to do.
And because they were basically on government subsidy, so now what do they do? he asked. They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton. And Ive often wondered, are they better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things, or are they better off under government subsidy? They didnt get no more freedom. They got less freedom.
Mr. Bundy is a plain spoken man who tells it like it is....he can’t compete with our duplicitous politicians and reporters....but I repeat myself..............
Bundy’s kids need to keep dear old dad away from the microphones .
I could hear , from the first moment that I heard him speaking on video a few weeks ago that this was NOT a talented speaker . Some people ramble , some people use terrible grammar and appear as redneck boobs .
The kids on the other hand seemed forthright, articulate
and lucid , especially his daughters .
That family needs to make a statement about their dad ;
“he been under tremendous pressure lately” and then retire him away from the mics altogether . The issue should NOT be about old Gliven , who has spent a long lifetime under the hot sun . He needs to get that too . Sorry sir, NOT about you . Step aside and let clearer minds advance the cause ,
and skip the fuzzy ‘clarifications’ . Your are only digging the hole deeper .
