Nevada rancher, domestic terrorist, and horrid racist Cliven Bundy has been desperately seeking someone (besides himself) to blame for his remarks that lazy “negroes” sit around all day collecting welfare checks and his “wondering” if they would, perhaps, have been better off as slaves “picking cotton.”
Even Bundy’s personal hero Sean Hannity felt that Bundy crossed the line, and strongly condemned his disgusting remarks. Since his initial comments, Bundy has confirmed and reaffirmed his beliefs that “negroes” are somehow a less valuable part of society, finally walking back the remarks in a CNN interview–in which it was pointed out that he is, in fact, a Welfare Cowboy.
With all of the backlash Bundy has faced, he has finally figured out what is wrong: Martin Luther King didn’t do his job well enough!
He explained–once again, on CNN (because FOX seems to have stopped returning his calls), to Chris Cuomo the reason why people are upset.
“I thought about Rosa Park taking her seat at the front of the bus […] What Reverend King wanted was that she could sit anywhere in the bus and nobody would say anything about it,” Bundy said. “You and I can sit anywhere in the bus. That’s what he wanted. That’s what I want.”
“That’s what he was after, it’s not a prejudice thing but make us equal,” he added.
Cuomo responded, “I understand that Martin Luther King’s message was one of peace and freedom. When you suggest that you were wondering if blacks were better off as slaves, that’s the opposite of freedom and very offensive to people. And I think you probably know that.”
“Maybe I sinned and maybe I need to ask forgiveness … but you know when you talk about prejudice, we’re talking about not being able to exercise what we think and are feeling,” Bundy conceded.
“If I say ‘negro’ or ‘black boy’ or ‘slave,’ I’m not — if those people cannot take those kind of words and not be offensive then Martin Luther King hasn’t got his job done yet,” he added.
That’s right, Bundy. It’s MLK’s fault people have an issue with your racism–or, perhaps, do people have an issue with it because of King’s message?
Bundy still denies that he is a racist.
