Rep. Waters: Shirley Sherrod Tape ‘Planted by the Enemy’ – ‘Right-Wing Press’

July 28, 2010 12:49 PM

ABC News’ Gregory Simmons reports: At the Urban League’s Centennial Celebration today in Washington, Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., delivered a scathing response to the White House and U.S. Department of Agriculture’s handling of the Shirley Sherrod fallout.

Sherrod, a former director of rural development for the state of Georgia, resigned from the Agriculture Department last week -- forced out by the Obama administration after video of her delivering remarks at an NAACP banquet, recounting an incident that occurred in 1986, was posted by a conservative media outlet.

“Here you had a woman who basically had a great history of evidently had done her job and had done it well, she said. “And all of a sudden because of a lack of courage by people in leadership they responded to a video that was done by the enemy.”

“The enemy,” according to Waters, is the conservative media. “The same people enemy that just killed off ACORN and other things,” she said. “The right-wing press is using that platform to literally do their organizing, to intimidate you and basically run this country.”

Did the “enemy” plant all of those people in the audience who voiced approval when Ms. Sherrod admitted that he had singled out a whitey for unfair treatment?

Time out. Using Maxine Waters to club the left wing is unsportmanlike conduct.

....”a video that was done by the enemy...”

....the video came from the NAACP...it was THEIR tape...Waters is a negro politician that has learned how to keep her base angry...that’s how she gets re-elected.

All those years in Congress, Maxie, yet your district has more issues than any other. Far more. It’s a hellhole and everybody knows it. Including you.

And avoids it. That says it all right there. Actions speak louder than words.

Glad you got your priorities straight. Maybe you can search out your district’s ultimate role model Rodney for “Can’t . .can’t . . can’t we all just get along??? . . Part II”

ROFL @ this dumbass woman

It is a shame that these black politicians can’t make a more honorable presentation as to their interests. Take for instance Sheila Jackson Lee’s recent comments.

They embarrass themselves. And I feel embarrassed for them.

They do more to hurt their constituents and their legacy than anyone could scheme to do TO them or their race.

Where is honor? What about facts? What about truth?

It is a real tragedy.

It’s clear Ms. Waters never got the “first think about what you’re going to say. Then try to understand what you’re going to say THEN engage the mouth”

Well, well, well.

Waters states that OBAMA fired SHERROD.

Obama says he only knew ‘after the fact’.

WHO’S LYING?

WHY, OF COURSE. There were nothing but 'right-wing' WHITE media members who posed as NAACP members, at the meeting.

Of course, the right-wing media photoshopped the video so that the white people appeared 'black'.

they responded to a video that was done by the enemy

Beyond parody.

Ok, the next time somebody accuses Conservatives of being "polarising" (which is not an insult, but anyway) just remind them of Waters' gibbering hatred and lunacy as displayed by this quote.

Did the same ‘white’ right-wing PRESS PERSON videotape the NAACP meeting, and the planting of the US FLAG on MARS?

IF so, Maxine may have a point.

Seems like OBAMA should attend a NAACP meeting and see what really goes on, before he starts firing (black women) people.

Maybe it's like Rev. Wright and CHURCH. He was there, but he never heard a word that was said. (except his own).

Meanwhile the exposure of Journolistgate, the cabal of 400 journalists who set forth the day’s attack on conservatives (or whitewash of Obama scandals) has gone unmentioned by the Pravda Press.

There ARE conspiracies, coordinated collusion, in our day’s news.

But Marxine just keeps her bigot blinders on.

Yes, it was SHEILA JACKSON LEE.

However, you will find that it is incorrectly attributed to Maxine Waters, all over the internet.

Sheila Jackson Lee, Maxine Waters, Cynthia McKinney.....

Their RACIST behavior is so identical that it is difficult to keep their names straight.
