Skip to comments.Bundy's Black Bodyguard: 'I Would Take A Bullet For That Man' (VIDEO)

One of the supporters serving as a bodyguard for Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy during his standoff with federal authorities -- and who also happens to be black -- said he would still "take a bullet for" Bundy after the rancher made racially inflammatory comments.
CNN's Dan Simon noticed Jason Bullock, a six-year Army veteran who serves as one of Bundy's bodyguards, hanging around at the Nevada ranch. Simon asked Bullock whether he found Bundy's remarks about blacks and slavery offensive.
"Mr. Bundy is not a racist," he told CNN. "Ever since I've been here, he's treated me with nothing but hospitality. He's pretty much treating me just like his own family."
"I would take a bullet for that man if need be. I look up to him just like I do my own grandfather," he added. "I believe in his cause 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."

Isn’t Abbott fantastic?! Rob Astorino is extremely impressive as well. Bob
I think Sean is now stuck in that in between place where he will always look bad for this. Some things you can’t weasel your way out of.
The New York Slimes pulled a fast one on all these people, including many in the media. But it’s not like they’ve done this for a long, long time. As a conservative minority, I waited to see if there was anything to this and like clockwork, just more deception and propaganda from the leftist media. The New York Slimes practices Alinsky tactics just like its master, the democrat party.
This reeks of desperation from both to try to use its influence and power to frame this story for its masters. The only thing that gives them any credibility is that people still listen to them but hopefully more and more tune them out as everyone sees just how corrupt they are along with their party. There is a good reason their numbers continue to decline. I say good riddance.
Take that Sean Hannity, Rand Paul, and Glenn Beck.
All three made knee-jerk decisions without knowing enough information.
Concerning Paul: definitely not Presidential-style decision-making.
That’ll take a week or more.
“The NYT started this, and they obviously played a part in the selective editing and deception. ..”
The NYT has done this so many times with various Catholic leaders, so I KNEW the other side - the truth - would come out eventually.
Especially the way he played up to Bundy and his family on his TV show, then to throw him under the bus before the dust had settled and the truth came out.
That's the most disgraceful part to me.
That is *Rat low* in my book.
Good idea. I watched his head spinning wildly last night on the tv show and then turned him off for good (or until he apologizes to Mr. Bundy for Pawn’s hateful vitriol).
Rand Paul completely disgusted me with his denouncement. They all make me sick. I shut Comrade Beck off a long time ago.
Sean Hannity and Glen Beck are both dead to me. I now listen to country music instead of them.
I ain't much on wild eyed hypocrisy.
They’re more worried about being pc than with doing the right thing.
Oh, yeah - AND willing to destroy a person’s reputation via worldwide media without even researching.
Mine too! He had no problem supporting Trent Lott's comments which ultimately led to Lott's resignation but yet he's now throwing Bundy, a grass roots cattle farmer who doesn't know how to properly express his views, under the bus.
Hey dude, it’s aaaaall about ratings, don’t you know?
I capitalize the word Black when referring to the people as opposed to the color black. I have no idea why I do that, just my own way to differentiate. I am certainly not a liberal but will continue to capitalize it. Sorry it offends you, but I think we have more important things to worry about.
Excuse me? Captain admitted he was wrong, what more do you want? You want his first born?.......sheesh!
If you have such angst then it should be directed towards the people here who are still condemning Bundy...........
This place is getting nuttier every day.......
I was already aware of the hannitys beck and etc, was really not ready for those that through him under the bus from here.
I am surprised CNN reported this news.
What I want is for at US to NEVER wabble!!! Sheesh WE should be STANDING OUR GROUND at least WE SHOULD KNOW BETTER!!!
Even if Mr. Bundy had made the remarks he had the God given right
to do so!!!!!
