"Conservative, Racist People"
CNN Political Ticker ^ | July 22, 2010 | Unknown

Posted on 07/22/2010 6:42:47 PM PDT by StoneWallJack

But when asked by CNN Chief National Correspondent John King what she would say to Breitbart, Sherrod did not dance around the question.

"I'd tell him he's a liar. He knew exactly what effect that would have on not only - he knew what effect that would have on the conservative, racist people he's dealing with. That's why I started getting the hate mail. And that's why I started getting the hate calls. He got the effect he was looking for," Sherrod said on John King, USA.

Apparently, Ms. Sherrod doesn't mind slandering other people. Where is Anderson Cooper? Doesn't Ms. Sherrod's comment warrant another "Anatomy of a Smear" smear report from the Coop?

Here is a quote from her, apparently in a sympathetic documentary about black farmers back in 2006:

Shirley Sherrod, Albany Office, FSC: “It makes you wonder sometimes why is it that it took Farmers Home Administration that long to, to send a notice. Why is it that the county supervisor didn’t send any kind of letter, you know, leading up to getting’ the delinquent notices in ‘87. So many strange things happen when you have only white people in charge of dealing with our people. “

Interesting how this quote doesn’t seem to be getting much attention, even here on FR (which is where I saw it first)

Yeah. She changed her tune a long time ago, right? 20 years ago? She saw how bad it was to be racist after she abdicated the responsibilities of her job, and realized it wasn’t about race, it was all about class.

Hm. “...our people...”

That was in 2006. Doesn’t sound RACIST to ME. Nope.

Here is the link to the quote (from a transcript) from a site called California Newsreel, and their motto is “Film and Video for Social Change since 1968”:

Sorry, Ms S...we are not taking your crap any more.

Whilst I do not agree with your firing, I do feel that you are a worthless Obama (I use this word in place of t*rd, since the worth of both is the same).

Go away, get an education, and get a real job .

Your job on govt was a quota gift. I know it. You know it.

Why not learn something useful - as in NOT public service.

Ah, put a sock in it Sherrod.
Actions and words have consequences.
Stop whining and DEAL with it.

When you subject white people to the very thing you don’t want black people subject to, your credibility is lost.

Check out her quote from a 1999 documentary entitled ‘Homecoming’:

Shirley Sherrod, Albany Office, FSC: It makes you wonder sometimes why is it that it took Farmers Home Administration that long to, to send a notice. Why is it that the county supervisor didn’t send any kind of letter, you know, leading up to getting’ the delinquent notices in ‘87.

Ms. Sherrod sure ain't color blind.

Everything she sees, she sees through racial glasses.

She and her husband sued USDA for “discrimination” and got $300,000 tax dollars. Wonder how much she’ll take out of taxpayer paychecks for this new slight? It would be educational to find out how much this racist bureaucrat makes per year on her “job.”

Ah. It was a 1999 documentary that she was quoted in. Perhaps it took five years to make and get it aired, so maybe we are approaching the 20+ years ago where she stopped being a racist.

That is what the Obamaloons want to deflect attention from their miserable failures.

I had dealings with government agencies back in the 70’s and 80’ including USDA. They were favoring minorities back then, most had mandated quotas and time tables “to make their workforce look like the population.” or more so.

What is she talking about? She is spouting not what she has seen or experienced but a fabricated scenario fashioned by her agenda.

It used to be easy to laugh and shrug these people off as fools. Now I'm not so certain. They keep pushing and pushing race-hatred, and eventually someone who has had enough kool-Aid is going to take matters into his own hands and it is going to get bloody.

We're living in dangerous times, and we've placed power into the hands of the most dangerous people in the nation.

Conservatives are their own worse enemy. They're giving this woman a pass on her prejudices. So this woman had an epiphany and now doesn't hate all whites, just Republicans, people opposed to Obama’s health care, and anyone who “has”.

In her own words:

“Well, working with him made me see that it’s really about those who have versus those who don’t, you know. And they could be black; they could be white; they could be Hispanic. And it made me realize then that I needed to work to help poor people — those who don’t have access the way others have.

I want to just share something with you and…I think it helps to — it — you know, when I learned this, I’m like, “Oh, my goodness.” You know, back in the late 17th and 18th century, black — there were black indentured servants and white indentured servants, and they all would work for the seven years and — and get their freedom. And they didn’t see any difference in each other — nobody worried about skin color. They married each other. You know, these were poor whites and poor blacks in the same boat, except they were slaves, but they were both slaves and both had their opportunity to work out on the slavery.

But then they started looking at the injustices that they faced and started then trying — you know, the people with money — you know, they started — the…poor whites and poor blacks who were — they — you know, they married each other. They lived together. They were just like we would be. And they started looking at what was happening to them and decided we need to do something about it — you know, about this. Well, the people with money, the elite, decided, hey, we need to do something here to divide them.

So that’s when they made black people servants for life. That’s when they put laws in place forbidding them to marry each other. That’s when they created the racism that we know of today. They did it to keep us divided. And they — it started working so well, they said, “Gosh, looks like we’ve come up on something here that can last generations.” And here we are over 400 years later, and it’s still working. What we have to do is get that out of our heads. There is no difference between us. The only difference is that the folks with money want to stay in power and whether it’s health care or whatever it is, they’ll do what they need to do to keep that power, you know. It’s always about money, ya’ll.

You know, I haven’t seen such a mean-spirited people as I’ve seen lately over this issue of health care. Some of the racism we thought was buried. Didn’t it surface? Now, we endured eight years of the Bush’s and we didn’t do the stuff these Republicans are doing because you have a black President.

In the NAACP speech itself, she implies that people who are opposed to the recent health care ‘reform’ bill are racists.

Basically, if you run around calling people racist all the time (and Sherrod is certainly NOT the only one doing this) it’s going to come back to bite you in some way.

I don’t think she got the ‘teachable moment’ here.

Until the left stops running around calling everyone racist at every opportunity, this will not end.

He knew exactly what effect that would have on not only - he knew what effect that would have on the conservative, racist people he's dealing with.

Exactly as Sherrod knew the effects her words would have on her audience. If she wishes to continue to be the poor aggrieved she should probably just STFU.

Please - catch up -

They got the $300K for “pain and suffering”.

They ALSO got a share of $13MM as part of their suit.

THEN the poor Ms Shirley got this State Director job. It’s got pay around $200K (unsourced just opinion), plus bennies.

Every penny tax money.

This government is corrupt and an enemy of the citizens.

You should see what it was like at the FAA -

Ever try to hire a black aerospace engineer? There are some - but not the qty you need for a federal agency. They had 50 years of white males to try to displace/correct with racial quotas.

We used to play the game in Sacramento. Everyone got mad when I proved we didn't have enough white people and I facetiously proved we had too many asians and pacific islanders. My bosses didn't want to play the game fair/both ways.

We also had a white guy of Italian descent. His parents lived in Ethiopia. He was born there and always claimed African-American; the only real AA in the department. Used to piss off all the black advocates and shut up all the weak-kneed managers.

We, as a country, had dealt with our prejudices, and triumphed over racism. Heck, we’d practically forgotten about it.

Then, Obama became President, and everything that we, as a country, had accomplished was destroyed.

He wiped out MARTIN LUTHER KING’s DREAM.

He is replacing it with LEX LUTHOR’S DREAM.
