Cliven Bundy still has some support, even after his comments about slavery, and CNN spoke to an African-American man acting as a bodyguard for Bundy and plans to do so even after the comments went public. Army vet Jason Bullock told CNN based on all the time he’s spent with Bundy he can’t believe the man is a racist.
Bullock said he was “not at all” offended by Bundy’s comments, “wondering” whether black people would be better off as actual slaves as opposed to slaves of the federal government. Bullock explained, “Mr. Bundy is not a racist. 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.”
He said he would even “take a bullet for that man if need be,” saying he still believes in the cause Bundy is fighting for and still has a “really good feel about him.”
