VIDEO: Cliven Bundy's Racist Comments

Here is the video of Cliven Bundy's racist tirade, in which he questioned whether black Americans were “better off as slaves” or “better off under government subsidy.” His remarks initially appeared in a New York Times article on April 23.

Bundy was heavily praised by conservatives in the media, who lauded his standoff with the federal government.

UPDATE: The video was initially uploaded by user Jasonpatrick11 to the website The Bundy Ranch responded to criticism of the tirade on their Facebook page on April 24, claiming that “words are taken out of context” and that Cliven Bundy “is not a racist man.”
