Cliven Bundy Slammed On Twitter After Racist Comments Go Viral

If you want to witness some really terrible racism, just go ahead and search for Cliven Bundy on Twitter.

The Nevada rancher made some interesting comments today to the New York Times.

Bundy said:

“I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro … They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton. And I’ve 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 didn’t get no more freedom. They got less freedom.”

Bundy has been getting a lot of attention lately because he refuses to pay grazing fees. He’s become a conservative hero and has gained support from several politicians. But due to his recent comments… well, the fallout is already starting.

A spokeswoman for Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.), said Heller “completely disagrees with Mr. Bundy’s appalling and racist statements, and condemns them in the most strenuous way.”

Senator Rand Paul released a statement saying: “His remarks on race are offensive and I wholeheartedly disagree with him.”

Cliven Bundy’s comments have also created a pretty big stir on social media. While some people are supporting the Nevada rancher, others are ripping into Bundy for making such a racist statement.

Cliven Bundy became a conservative hero for fighting the government but it looks like his number of supporters is starting to dwindle after his most recent remarks.
