You know, Eric Holder must be pinching himself that this Sherrod story took the place of the root issue, that of the New Black Panthers voter intimidation dismissal of charges due solely to their color.
Recall, Brietbart was trying to expose inherent racism by the NAA(L)CP in the face of their charges that the Tea Party was racist (without a shred of evidence). The NBP story had become the face of racism when the NAA(L)CP tried to point the finger at the Tea Party.
"We must stop the white man and his Uncle Toms from stealing our elections. We must not be afraid to vote black. We must not be afraid to turn a black out who votes against our interests."
Let this be a “teachable moment” for all those on the right who rushed to defend this woman before getting all of the facts about her.
This strategy would serve well to "out" the racist hucksters hiding in plain sight among democrats.
I can’t quite figure this out, so please someone enlighten me: If Shirley Sherrod was involved in a law suit against the Federal Government for racial descrimination against farmers, why was she ever hired to work for the USDA? I realize this was a new appointment, but wasn’t she working in some other capacity for 20 years or more? Isn’t that what she said - that years ago she didn’t want to help that white farmer but over the years learned?
I am pretty sure the WH knew Shirley’s background and it was this knowledge that lead to their speedy dismissal. Now that they have been forced to re-embrace her in order to burnish their racial bonofides with the Brown Rainbow, they now live in fear of not being able to control the story. It seems the word has been sent out to all those paragons of objective virture (WAPO, NYT, assorted alphabet soup Networks) to blame Brietbart. Funny how quickly the likes of Ms. E. J. Dionne are able to write up a racist hit piece when called upon. Methinks, a few well placed video quotes from the Sherrods is in order. I wonder if there is any certifiable audio of the august Mr. Sherrod speaking? An interview or two with young Kenyatta and Russia are certainly in order here.
Nope, she is definately not an inbred racist and bigot...nope. =.=
Charles Sherrod: “We must stop the white man and his Uncle Toms from stealing our elections.”
Must Read ping!
Video at link of Charles Sherrod..the racist marxist and a ‘founding father’ of the Black Panthers.
Blacks have had plenty of chances to develop commerce on their own and failed as compared to many other groups, pleading their case against, "the White Man and His Uncle Toms." He makes an appeal to racial solidarity and the evils of others. "Trust each other", he says. If that was going to happen it would have by now.
You can be down and out, an oppressed minority and still make it big in America. Don't believe it? Get a bunch of Italians, Jews, Pakistanis. Throw in some Irish and some Mexicans, or some Caribbean Blacks as a bunch of impoverished immigrants in the United States and in ONE generation they will be out of poverty and in the Middle class or better. They will be doing business among themselves and everybody else, with more success and a lot less whining.
