Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy says God was on his side in his confrontation with a government he doesn’t recognize.

Bundy, a Mormon, told an Independent American Party gathering in St. George, Utah, on Saturday that God provided him personal inspiration in the showdown over cattle in Bunkerville, Nevada, about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas.

“The Lord told me … if [the local sheriff doesn’t] take away these arms from federal agents, we the people will have to face these arms in a civil war. He said, `This is your chance to straighten this thing up,’” Bundy said, according to The Spectrum of St. George.

The Spectrum also reports:

“If the standoff with the Bundys was wrong, would the Lord have been with us?” Bundy asked, noting that no one was killed as tensions escalated. “Could those people that stood without fear and went through that spiritual experience … have done that without the Lord being there? No they couldn’t.”

    Why does God keep talking to millionaire squatters?
    Dear God, the whole Humas/Isreal thing is getting pretty bad can you talk to them? Hey also there seems to be a large child sex slavery thing going on in every corner of the planet, could you maybe intervene in that? Oh you only speak English and deal with people in the US because we are your favorites? Hey 116 of your children commited suicide today, can you talk to the 116 who will tomorow and give them some hope or reason to live another day?

      For the same reason that extraterrestrials only visit yokels in Arkansas trailer parks, and never seem to set down in Harvard Yard.

        I’ve often wondered about that. Why do the aliens only come down (and abduct) in Yazepatowee, Mississippi and like places…why don’t they come down here in my home city of NY–in Times Square? Then we’d all know they are real.

    Thank God Bundy doesn’t speak for the Mormon Church…..or for God.

    Same God that told Santorum to run for the presidency as well as Rick Perry, and Bachmann. Ever notice how God must have a great sense of humor and he likes to mess with these idiots, either that or they are just plain delusional.

    God never talks to sane people, only self-assured sociopaths looking to amass or protect vast sums of wealth.

        Love that quote!

    Fuck this deadbeat, welfare rancher. Why are people still shoving mics into his grill? Who gives a damn about what he says? He should pay off his debt to the gubmint and then go the hell away

  6. tiredoftea August 4th, 2014 at 1:40 am

    Dumber than a box of rocks. With apologies to rocks.

    No doubt God loves old Ted. But uh, I think he maybe has a glitch in his hearing aid?
    Blame it on Miracle Ear for sure!!!

  8. Tommy6860 August 4th, 2014 at 4:28 am

    I think he’s been wearing the magic underwear on his head.

  9. Larry Schmitt August 4th, 2014 at 5:23 am

    If there is a god, I seriously doubt she would have anything to say to this oaf, except possibly, “I am very disappointed in you.”

  10. William August 4th, 2014 at 8:05 am

    Ever since his racist rants have sent his bro-mance right wing media wackos, like Hannidy scurrying for cover, Bundy has been trying in vain to extend his 15 minutes.

  11. fancypants August 4th, 2014 at 9:38 am

    its a lot like glen becks warning of civil war in this country

    Good to see old glen admits that he’s a socialist and agrees with congressman Bernie sanders

  12. labman57 August 4th, 2014 at 9:51 am

    Bundy is just another self-serving, law-breaking anarchist who claims that the voices in his head are a form of Devine communication.

  13. Dwendt44 August 4th, 2014 at 2:11 pm

    People that talk to god are religions; those that god talks to are insane.

    • R.J. Carter August 4th, 2014 at 2:15 pm

      Well, that’s the first step in the gods destroying a man.

  14. Elliot J. Stamler August 4th, 2014 at 3:12 pm

    Bundy has one point correct: if things keep going the way they are then there will at some point be another civil war…provoked by the same types as provoked the last one except it won’t be regional, it will be national and ideological/social. There is a reason the crazy right-wing fascists are arming themselves to the teeth and passing state laws allowing them to do so. Which is why anti-fascists of whatever persuasion (not just “liberals”) had better seriously start thinking about arming themselves. I am not a doomsdayer but the country is now infinitely more divided than at the height of the Vietnam War..I lived thru that and write thus from personal knowledge. It’s getting worse with the Republicans now essentially a fascist party AND (here it comes) our feckless, laid-back, no-drama president doing nothing effectively to fight against this trend.

      These are the Christofascist we are up against. And when God is on your side you just can’t be wrong.

  15. bpollen August 4th, 2014 at 3:16 pm

    That fucking god! He is SUCH a card!

  16. Alex August 4th, 2014 at 4:48 pm

    Welcome to the Mormon ideology………. What people will do in the name of their God is unbelievable to me….

  17. Skip Patterson August 4th, 2014 at 8:23 pm

    [Cliven Bundy] Just in case there were any of you out that who maybe had doubts as to if I a batcrap crazy or not, let me make a brief statement to clear that up.

  18. Steph August 4th, 2014 at 8:42 pm

    The voices that live in your head are not God, Mr. Bundy. Hearing things that no one else can hear is neither holy nor evil- It’s called auditory hallucination and some medicine can keep it under control.

  19. Roy Ferry August 5th, 2014 at 2:53 am

    Funny but when people like Bundy talk with god, whatever god may be, god always sounds exactly like them and tells them exactly what they want to hear.

  20. raincheck1956 August 5th, 2014 at 5:25 am

    I wonder who his handlers are…

  21. JamesMMartin August 6th, 2014 at 11:59 pm

    I wonder who this “God” is and why would He tell Cliven Bundy anything at all. Who told these shit kickers they had a right to talk to God and because God told them this and that, then this and that is law? The only natural law there is is Nature. Cliven Bundy only talked to his own brain, which is only God to Mr. Bundy himself.
