Saint Shirley Sherrod: Shut Down BigGovernment.com for Good of the Country
Thursday, July 22, 2010 | Kristinn

Posted on 07/22/2010 6:57:33 AM PDT by kristinn

Former USDA official Shirley Sherrod, who claims she was falsely smeared as a racist while she herself falsely smears Republicans and Fox News as racists, said this morning that she would like to see BigGovernment.com, the website that made her famous, shut down for the good of the country.

CNN's American Morning reported on Sherrod's demand:

She said if Breitbart's site were shut down, "That would be a great thing, because I don't see how that advances us in this country ... at a time when we should be trying to look at how we can make space for all of us in this country, so that we can all live and work together, he's doing more to divide us."

Sherrod also told CNN she is considering suing Andrew Breitbart, the owner of Big Government:

"I really think I should. You know, I don't know a lot about the legal profession, but that's one person I'd like to get back at. Because he came at me. You know, he didn't go after the NAACP. He came at me."

Yesterday, in an interview with the Democrat front group Media Matters, Sherrod smeared Fox News as wanting to take blacks back to the Jim Crow era:

... they would love to take us back to where we were many years ago. Back to where black people were looking down, not looking white folks in the face, not being able to compete for a job out there and not be a whole person."

In the same speech given in March to the NAACP that initially got Sherrod fired by the Obama administration, Sherrod smeared Republicans as racists for opposing Barack Obama's government takeover of healthcare:

"Some of the racism we thought was buried, didn't it surface? Now we endured eight years of the Bushes, and we didn't do the stuff these Republicans are doing because you have a black president."

Sherrod is being annointed as a saint by the media for her claim to have overcome her own racism. She is even being compared to Nelson Mandela. Yet to this day she speaks in starkly racist terms of "my people" and "his own kind" while flinging the race card as skillfully as Jesse Jackson at her perceived political opponents.

She also has revealed a leftist totalitarian streak. It's no wonder the communists from ANSWER and Code Pink were out supporting her yesterday:

I heard some local talk show guy, I presume he's local, call her "a fine black woman" who lost her job.

The right better grow a set and learn how to fight. This is getting beyond ridiculous.

Just wow. She fits in real well with the d-bags at Journolist who want the gubmint to shut down Fox News.

I imagine she - like that Spitz woman - would also enjoy laughing “loudly like a maniac and watch his eyes bug out” as Limbaugh writhed in torment”.

Sure is a lot of this (’shut down what I don’t want other people to know’) going around lately. Seems to be the liberals’ way—if you can’t come up with a legitimate argument against an opponent, silence them. Sounds just like Communist Russia...

I agree that Sherrod is still a racist because she using racist language such as referring to whites helping "their own kind". We still haven't heard how much help she withheld from that white farmer in the end.

And as far as Obama is concerned, you'd think that a civil rights superstar that he's supposed to be, would have known this womans life story and sympathized with her like the rest of the Left.

And of course Sherrod supports shutting down the free speech of a white citizen using the power of government which is both racist and communist/fascist in nature.

This whole Sherrod affair is beginning more and more to smell like a White House PsyOp every day.

My Spidey sense began to tingle when on the same day the story broke, all of the Outer Party Members (i.e. Dem Apologists) were in lock step on how Fox was not a "real news organization", and since only Fox covered the story, it must either be insignificant or a fabrication.

Then lo an behold, "exculpatory" evidence of the full (and much better quality) video comes out which seems to portray the exact opposite of what Fox has been claiming (which upon full inspection it is quite obvious Outer Party Member Sherrod did not learn much from her parable after all).

Now the MSM decides they do have a front-page story after all, how Fox is bullying the White House due to journalistic malfeasance !

I smell a (Dem)RAT !!

Ok, we need to know where Brietbart got the original clip. He’s been set-up.

She has NO problem with Barry & Co just firing her without her having a chance to defend herself? What ??

This is the administration that took 6 months to decide to increase troops and yet they decided to fire someone in less than 8 hours. I don’t think so.

This is a manufactured crises. AB was set up by the administration. Mark my words. This was planned.

Hey, was I the only one here who noticed that, in her interview this morning, this rotten bureaucrat said she wanted to sit down with Obama so he could learn “how we RULE”!!!???

I had to play that over again, because I couldn’t believe I heard it right the first time.

The arrogant b*tch DID say “RULE”!

Breitbart didn’t slander Sherrod, he put up the video to show racism from NAACP members in response to racism accusations against the Tea Party by the NAACP. The main focus of the video was the positive reaction of the NAACP members to Sherrod’s story of her racist actions against the white farmer. In other words, they loved it. The so called “context” of her later saying what she did was not right puts her in a better light, but not her audience.

What was sickening was the number of conservative commentators canonizing this racist nutjob yesterday, generally as a vehicle to get at the 0bama administration. There were only a handful that were putting the brakes on it (Hannity, for one). The rest were sounding like they were getting talking points from Journolist.

Well, there are two ways to shut down a website: getting a libel judgment against it with a settlement that deprives it of sufficient funds to run, or sending jackbooted thugs to steal its servers on behalf of the “public interest”.

If Ms. Sherrod thinks she was libeled, she has every right to pursue the first means. As to the second, there is this little thing called the First Amendment that restrains our government from doing the second

I agree! Vilsak said yesterday in his press conference that SHE KNEW about the snippet LAST THURSDAY - and tried to send an email to him but it conveniently didn't go through or he didn't get it or something to that effect.

It would seem to me that something like this would warrant at the very least a phone call.

If she knew about it, did the NAACP know about it? Who told her?

I have serious doubts about who gave the snippet to Breitbart. Is it the same person who gave the full video to NAACP? Is this person in any way personally affiliated with Ms. Sherrod?

There's more to this story - someone in the media (tv) needs to start asking these questions.

This smells of a set up!!!

This hateful, typical marxist-racist needs to be continually studied and exposed as a case-in-point for the rest of the nation.

She embodies perfectly everything that the radical left truly is and “daylight is the best disinfectant.”

Just make sure everything is accurate, true, verifiable and preferably on video or audio.

Even Hannity was glossing over her repeated use of the condescending term “his own kind” she used in reference to the farmer in her so-called “exculpatory statements.”
