Cliven Bundy Speaks Out

Cliven Bundy - the Nevada rancher turned conservative folk hero for bucking the federal government's attempts to stop his cattle from grazing on public land - admits he doesn't understand the bipartisan uproar over his comments suggesting blacks might have been better off under slavery.

But he understands what he meant by those comments, and he's not backing down.

"I don't think I'm wrong," Bundy told CNN's Bill Weir on Thursday night. "I think I'm right."

We'll speak with Bundy about his comments on "New Day" during our 8am ET hour.

    Do us a favor, Cliven, and go back to the 1800s where people with your mindset belong!

    I am absolutely disgusted with how Chris Cuomo displayed his self-righteous, intimidating, arrogant and know-it-all attitude during his interview with Mr Bundy, this morning. I believe Cuomo did Mr Bundy an immense injustice with his derogatory verbal attack and owes Mr Bundy more than just an apology for not being the un-biased news reporter, that he is supposed to be.

    Clive Bundy unfortunately represents many of the same views as the right wing in our Government. He is full of hate a vigor against Native Americans and other minorities, he's been open about his views. Much like the Rand Paul and Fox News who have called this man, Their Hero. NOW THAT THE LIGHT IS ON, get this. There is no one who can work for a private coropration and get away with dogging it like the GOP has done to President Obama and US Government and sitll have a job. Still get paid, and still have the balls to use Clive Bundy as their "Joe the Plumber". And actually have any credibility what so ever.. No one What hurts more than anything is to see minority GOPs. News flash "Now you know that the GOP are really not into you"...

    OH MY GOODNESS!!! CHRIS CUOMO ROCK!!!! SERIOUSLY!!! THAT WAS THE BEST INTERVIEW ON A RACIAL TOPIC I HAVE EVER HEARD IN MY LIFE!!! WE ARE ALL TALKING ABOUT IT! IF HE WANTS TO MAKE RACIAL COMMENTS INSTEAD OF FOCUSING ON CATTLE LET HIM BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE. IT IS SO EMBARRASSING THAT THE BLACK MAN THAT WORKS FOR HIM STILL DOES. I WAS PRAYING FOR A VOICE AND CHRIS IS A GOD SEND. THANK YOU SO MUCH CHRIS CUOMO! I WILL BE SHOWING MY CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN THAT INTERVIEW! THE WOMAN THAT CAME ON AFTER CHRIS'S INTERVIEW IS THE TYPICAL 'ACCEPTANCE' RESPONSE. SHE CAME ACROSS AS DEFENDING HIM... 'HE REALLY DIDNT GET IT'... TURNED TELEVISION OFF WHEN SHE WOULDNT LET IT GO AND CONTINUE ON WITH OTHER NEWS. I WOULD NOT WANT A COWORKER LIKE HER.
