Sherrod: I'd Consider Legal Action against Breitbart
cbsnews.com ^ | 7-22-10 | Stephen Smith

Posted on 07/22/2010 11:50:12 AM PDT by Justaham

Former Agriculture Department official Shirley Sherrod said Thursday that she would consider legal action against the conservative blogger who posted the video that led to her ouster.

Speaking on CBS' Early Show, Sherrod said that while she hasn't actively talked about suing Andrew Breitbart, she "would definitely consider it."

Sherrod said that Breitbart's intentions were obvious - but misguided.

Imagine how strong of a case she would have if she had clear evidence of a cabal of bloggers conspiring to defame and undermine her. Imagine if this cabal was named blogolist and the members of said list had openly planned ways to unify their message of hate, even before they knew thing one about her. Man, would she ever have a case!

Given 0bama's actions would she be wrong about that? lol

I'm afraid she doesn't see that though.

This racist woman is doing a helluva job turning what positive image she had into a mass of negatives.

Brietbart should reveal his source- the idiot should have given him the whole 45 minutes

i think it was a setup of Breitbart- but he STILL played it masterfully

The white house even fell for it

Breitbart correctly pointed out that the NAACP audience id the bigger issue here- when she was explaining how she acted racist toward some white farmers they were ALL FOR IT!

Shepard Smith must have the lowest ratings on FOX. I never watch him. I avoid his show and O’Reilly.

I’ve been wondering how O’Reilly is taking the fact that everyone is finally acknowledging that it was Hannity who broke the Rev. Wright story. O’Reilly tried to take credit for it, but we all knew he was lying.

O Reily is riding on Glen Beck’s coat tails.

OReily should just go. He was and is just a tabloid newsreader.

as for smith, he has no place around real news.

The only reason those two have ratings is because cnn and msnbc and the networks are sooooooo bad.

Oh, you mean like what Media Matters and MSNBC does to various conservatives about fifty times a day?

Precisely.

if the excerpt showed her in a false light,. it was due to NAACCP editing- not Breibart. He posted what they released!

I am under the impression that his source was not the NAACP but someone else who sent him the edited clips. Maybe he ought to reveal who that person is but I dont think he will.

Doesnt the NAACP sound ridiculous claiming they were snookered by Andrew when it was their own event?!!

go ahead and try. You don’t have a leg to stand, even if your middle name is Eileen.

You did say it, you did do it and even admitted such. Your audience was cheering your reprehensible story at that exact moment and it is who they are and what views they hold.

That was the point of the video, not your come to Jesus moment some 20 minutes later in the story, which seemed contrived, at best.

"ah yes now we can all see that she is a victim and deserves money for her own racism and stupidity. Finally Affirmative Action has been outed as a joke. These people including Obama have set race relations back 75 years and they are too ignorant to see it. The race card has disappeared from the deck."

Basically the race card has now become the Joker! LOL

Joe Biden is the intentional fall guy. Anytime the commies need a diversion from the issues they trot him out.

He is an old time lefty pol who knows exactly what he's doing.

Dem Dick Tuck/Marx would be SEIU/ACORN operatives who show up at Tea Parties with nazi signs or paint swastikas on lawns in black neighborhoods; college teaching assistants who hang nooses on dorm room door knobs.

The American people should demand an investigation into just how Shakedown Shirley
and Charlie Sherrod managed to grab $ 300,000 from the taxpayers for their
“ pain and suffering “ in July 2009,
during the reign of Barry.
There may also be an unspecified amount in forgiveness of debt.
http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/blogs/Examiner-Opinion-Zone/Shirley-Sherrods-Disappearing-Act-Not-So-Fast-98846149.html#ixzz0uSYtTiPL

An audit should be conducted into the 13 million Barry
gave Shakedown Shirley’s “ New Communities “ foundation last year.
Ditto the 1 billion ( that’s a “ B “ ) that taxpayers have paid black farmers and those
who “ attempted to farm “ in what amounts to reparations.
A bunch of wimpy hand ringers on the right got snookered and faint yesterday
and threw Breitbart under the bus without doing due diligence
on Shakedown Shirley’s full , anti white, anti Republican , racist NAACP speech.
I understand that Rush was not one of the hand wringers and saw through Shirley’s phony redemption speech.
Good for him.

She married to the head of SNCC after Stokely Carmichael absconded to Cuba. She is a marxist whore who uses race like every other Marxist whore. Who Cares what she thinks or feels. She is a malignant cancer in the body politic.

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”:

Here are excellent details on Sherrod’s multi-million settlement from the USDA; and history of her and husband’s “New Communities” in the state of Georgia. Essential reading—

http://www.wral.com/golo/blogpost/8019074

They, of all things, went to Israel in the 80’s to study the working of communes, but then couldn’t get communes to work back home on the Georgia properties—for, unsurprising, all the usual reasons for failure of commune projects in the U. S., especially in the 70’s and 80’s. The USDA was ultimately blamed years later . . .

Had he seen the whole thing he still could have made the point, and its a correct point, that the audience while ignorant of the direction was happy to hear about ‘getting even’. He could have done that without attacking her.

Beck was spot on for this one... If you don’t have the full context either don’t run it or make a disclaimer.

I am guessing Breitbart embeded a youtube video so he in essence linked to something someone else put up on the internet.

In fact here is the guy who did it:

Larry O'Connor(Stage Right) is a regular contributor to Big Hollywood, Big Government & Big Journalism. He has a daily internet radio show on Blog Talk Radio.

So this is a guy who is a freelancer and Breitbart just embedded the vid.

How is that gonna hold up in a court case?

She wasn’t the story. The reaction of the NAACP members to what she said was.
