Shirley Sherrod returns to the USDA
POLITICO ^ | 5/14/11 | JOSEPH WILLIAMS

Posted on 05/14/2011 8:52:32 AM PDT by george76

Shirley Sherrod, the U.S. Department of Agriculture employee who was forced out after a portion of a videotape was misleadingly used to show her making a racially insensitive remark, will start working for the USDA again, the department told POLITICO Friday. But she’s not getting her old job back.

Instead, Sherrod will help the USDA improve its dismal civil rights record.

The purpose of government is to confiscate the cash Whitey stole from Eric Holder’s people and give it to them.

If you read the article it says she will be a contract employee but the company is one she started, so she got a government contract to hand money to blacks who claim to have been farmers, basically.

The POINT of the video (NOT taken out of context) was not that she wanted to ‘stick it to whitey’- as far as the distribution of socialist benefits - because the story came full circle to how that was an ignoble impulse - the POINT of the video was that her AUDIENCE (not knowing that the story ‘came full circle’) CHEERED her impulse to ‘stick it to whitey’.

On the INHERENT impulse in Socialism towards factionalization and racist sentiment.

The impulse of socialism tends to racial grievances and enforcement of factionalism.

From : The Socialist Roots of Anti-Semitism:

“Capitalism and the market economy encourage racial, ethnic, and religious tolerance, while supporting a plurality of diverse lifestyles and customs. Heavily regulated or socialist economies, in contrast, tend to breed intolerance and ethnic persecution. Socialism leads to low or negative rates of economic growth, disputes over resource use, and concentrated political power-all conditions which encourage conflict rather than cooperation. Ethnic and religious minorities usually do poorly when political coercion is prevalent. Economic collapses - usually associated with interventionism-worsen the problem by unleashing the destructive psychological forces of envy and resentment, which feed prejudice and persecution.

While discrimination is present in societies of all kinds, discriminators must pay pecuniary costs for indulging their prejudices in a market setting. Even the prejudiced usually will trade with minorities; bigots attempt to oppress minorities by socializing the costs through government action, but bigots usually are less willing to bear these costs themselves. Repeated commercial interactions also increase the social familiarity of customs or lifestyles that otherwise might be found unusual or alien. Sustained economic growth alleviates political and social tensions by creating more for everybody.

The history of the Jewish people illustrates the relatively favorable position of minorities in a market setting. Hostility toward trade and commerce has often fueled hostility toward Jews, and vice versa. The societies most congenial to commercial life for their time - Renaissance Italy, the growing capitalist economies of England and the Netherlands in the seventeenth century, and the United States - typically have shown the most toleration for Jews. Ellis Rivkin, in his neglected masterpiece, The Shaping of Jewish History.- A Radical New Interpretation, wrote:

Since World War II Jews and Judaism have been liberated in every country and territory where capitalism has been restored to vigorous growth-and this includes Germany. By contrast, wherever anti-capitalism or pre-capitalism has prevailed the status of Jews and Judaism has either undergone deterioration or is highly precarious. Thus at this very moment the country where developing global capitalism is most advanced, the United States, accords Jews and Judaism a freedom that is known nowhere else in the world and that was never known in the past. It is a freedom that is not matched even in Israel... By contrast, in the Soviet Union, the citadel of anti-capitalism, the Jews are cowed by anti-Semitism, threatened by extinction, and barred from access to their God. “

The reward for her role in the Pigford Wealth Redistribution Scam that bilked taxpayers out of somewhere between 5 and 10 billion dollars in bogus claims of discrimination by blacks.

Probably created the job for her in exchange for her not suing them.

Isn't it odd that the majority of Jews everywhere seem to choose the left and anti-capitalist over the conservative, pro-capitalism choices. In other words, they seem to consistently vote against their own longterm interests [not the only voting block that does that, I might add].
