WHAT THEY SAID
&
WHAT THEY MEANT

We all have met people that say one thing and mean another. Many well known people have spoken out on various topics. We have listed some quotes and what we believe was actually meant.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"I'm not a racist."
- Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling to CNN's Anderson Cooper.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
I just say things that make me sound like a racist.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro. They didn't have nothing to do. They didn't have nothing for their kids to do. They didn't have nothing for their young girls to do, And because they were basically on government subsidy, so now what do they do? They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton. And I've often wondered, are they better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things, or are they better off under government subsidy? They didn't get no more freedom. They got less freedom."
- Republican patriot, rancher and government mooch Cliven Bundy.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
I know about the Negro, they are better off as slaves working for me on my ranch.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"Confirms the ignorant view that (Rep. Steve ) Israel has of conservatives. Because every conservative I know does not support racism period, like me they find it repugnant. Like me the find it despicable, they find it ignorant. But thatís not going to stop the Democrats."
- Sean Hannity, on Democrat Rep. Steve Israel using Republicans support for Cliven Bundy politically.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
Every conservative I know does not support racism period we just happen to rally behind people who use racist comments. Doesn't mean we are racists.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"You guys ask stupid questions."
- Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, when asked if he was still using drugs.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
You have to ask? Of course I do.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"I would even go as far to say that this engagement has been something worth probably looking at for good practices other institutions and states could copy,"
- Archbishop Silvano Tomasi, on how the Roman Catholic Church has handled sexual abuse by priests.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
How the Roman Catholic Church has handled sexual abuse is something worth probably looking at for good practices other institutions and states could copy, NOT!


WHAT THEY SAID,
"That is ludicrous. Everyone knew that raping children was a crime and it should have been reported to the police. They are not committing themselves to remove the sexual predators from the priesthood or from ministry. They are not punishing the bishops who conceal and cover up the sex crimes."
- Barbara Blaine, founder and president of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, on Archbishop Silvano Tomasi claims that the Roman Catholic Church viewed sex offenders as people who could be treated psychologically.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
The Roman Catholic Church is a pedophile ring out to protect the offenders rather than the victims.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"Rehab is amazing."
- Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, on his rehab at a treatment center.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
It is like a vacation without drugs or alcohol.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"I couldn't be consistent with myself and my core beliefs, and stay with a party that was so unfriendly toward the African-American president, I'll just go there. I was a Republican and I saw the activists and what they were doing, it was intolerable to me."
- Former Florida Governor Charlie Crist, on why he left the Republican party.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
That and I couldn't beat Marco Rubio in the Republican primary.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"Playing the race card to win over voters is pitiful."
- Republican National Committee spokesperson Izzy Santa, on Charlie Crist's reason for leaving the Republican party.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
You would never catch Republicans playing the race card.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"I don't wish that girl any bad luck but I hope she gets hit with a car."
- Former Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda, on V. Stiviano who secretly taped Donald Sterling.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
I hope she gets hit with a car and not a small hybrid but a very large car.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"Itís ridiculous and silly,"
- Florida Senator Marco Rubio, on Charlie Crist's reason for leaving the Republican party.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
It is ridiculous and silly to leave the Republican party because of the actions toward the African-American president, Republicans would have acted the same toward a white Democratic president.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"We have been told that our troops by the Ukrainian border are a concern Ė we have withdrawn them."
- Russian President Vladimir Putin, on Russian troops on the Ukrainian border.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
We have withdrawn our troops but fully expect the same result whether they are there or not.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"I think that the fact that the National Republican Congressional Committee is raising money off the creation of this committee is a pretty good indication of the political motivation thatís at work here."
- White House Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest, on a House investigation into the September 2012 attack in Libya.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
It is politics as usual.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"Our focus is on getting the answers to those families who lost their loved ones, period."
- House Speaker John Boehner when asked if the National Republican Congressional Committee should fund-raise off of the committee looking into 2012 Benghazi attacks.

WHAT THEY SAID,
"We made a fair offer. We hope they appoint members. At this point, itís time to get to work."
- Michael Steel spokesman for House Speaker Boehner, on Democrats participating in the House committee to investigate the 2012 Benghazi attacks.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
We made an offer, Democrats can take it or leave it.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"I do not believe that human activity is causing these dramatic changes to our climate the way these scientists are portraying it,"
- Florida Senator Marco Rubio, on climate change.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
I do not believe I can win a Republican primary agreeing that human activity is causing these dramatic changes to our climate.
