Bundy Tries To Apologize

He got a decent start on CNN Friday morning, saying "Maybe I sinned and maybe I need to ask forgiveness and maybe I don’t know what I actually said."

Take out the three "maybe"s, and he would have been home free.  But instead, Bundy continued:

If I call — if I say negro or black boy or slave, I’m not — if those people cannot take those kind of words and not be offended, then Martin Luther King hasn’t got his job done then yet. They should be able to — I should be able to say those things and they shouldn’t offend anybody.

Yeah.  Stupid Martin Luther King getting himself murdered before he finished the job.

But more importantly, note what Bundy seems to think that MLK's "job" actually was.  Apparently, Martin Luther King was here so that Bundy could slur black people, and nobody would be offended.  Certainly that was Martin Luther King's dream, right?  When you make racist statements suggesting that the Negro would be better off a slave, and not get called out for it?
