Rescheduled, not cancelled: Breitbart to get RNC invite
The Republican National Committee has cancelled a fundraiser with conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart, who is under fire for promoting an edited video that falsely portrays former Agriculture Department employee Shirley Sherrod as having boasted about discriminating against a white farmer looking for her assistance.
Breitbart was scheduled to appear with RNC Chairman Michael Steele at a reception later this month in Beverly Hills.
“ObabaGoons have finished-off Breitbart. Smoothly done.”
Might facts and fortune make a difference? I suspect they will.
I will stick with Andrew Breitbart. the RNC can go do heck....
someone please tell these idiots the tape was not edited it was a exerpt! what morons
Not only are they cowards but they are also liars.
I give it straight to the people I want it to go to: Sarah, Michelle, the Arizona defense fund, etc.
IOW the RNC is scared they are next. (rightly so)
This is why I can’t trust anybody who leads the Republican party. Sending the signal they will cave in when they take back congress to the left. There are only a few who are worth trusting, the rest are lying.
CNN? Don't confuse them with facts. It upsets them.
YO RNC, morons, it wasn’t about Shirley you fools, it was about the NAACP, geez, this group doesn’t deserve any $$$ - they are too stupid to get the facts straight
Every day it becomes more and more obvious the Michael Steele is a Democrat plant at the RNC.
I don't know why so many are still fooled that the GOP is anything but Dems-lite. I first saw this in the local elections a few years ago for a congressional seat. The local, state, and national GOP did everything they could to sabotage the good conservative and turn the seat over to a liberal (either R or D).
I don't think much has changed as far as the overall "party" goes. All they do is trick people into thinking they are an alternative to Ds.
Of course there are a few, individual exceptions.
Our country has a severe shortage of gonads at all levels of government as well as nonexistent levels of testosterone. That affliction has struck the leadership of the GOP too.
Jan Brewer has more gonads than 99.9% of the so-called men in DC. We are a nation governed by spineless, gutless, eunuchs and traitors.
Better for Breitbart not to be associated with Steele.
If the Democrats weren’t so damn horrible, no one with any sense would ever vote Republican.
“I think Ill donate to Breitbart instead of the GOP, then.”
The socialists realize this is war and are acting accordingly - the GOP is still in dreamland and thinks this is just old fashioned politics. Until they wake up (and get rid of Steele) they won’t get my contribution.
I give my take on the Andrew Breitbart’s video of Shirley Sherrod’s speech before the NAACP. I am re posting it from another thread:
The video of Shirley Sherrod’s speech revealed the racism of the NAACP audience. There is no way one could mistake the overwhelming evidence of racism. I believe Breitbart wanted to reveal black racism against whites that is the true picture of the NAACP, an organization that is trying to tie racism to the Tea Party movement.
Sherrod was only the catalyst and and the interaction between her and the audience is the main subject. Sherrod was throwing out comments that not only triggered racist reactions against whites, but it also revealed an acceptance of Marxism where wealth is redistributed. This paints a revealing picture of the NAACP!
I see the State Owned Media has done its best to muddy the waters with the focus on Sherrod. This is an effort to shift focus away from the real culprit, the NAACP. And Sherrod, who has acted to promote the medias effort to redeem her, has dug herself in deeper with revelations about her husbands racism and now their business dealings.
Exactly. They keep wanting me to re-up but what little money I have will go to conservative candidates and not be funneled through that cowardly group.
Abandoning Breitbart! ridiculous.
Nice to see that CNN is still lying about the video being edited. From everything I’ve been able to learn on this, Breitbart did not do any editing, rather, just excerpted a bite from the whole video. Good thing no one actually watches CNN anymore.
See my tagline.
I think you're right.
Good grief, the high-profile event with Breitbart isn't a liability but an opportunity to clear the muddy waters and take control the message!
Mark Preston - CNN is a LIAR!
Was this guy on the JournOlist?!
The RNC shoots itself in the foot again. What a bunch of pansies.
Wow, the Republican party REALLY doesn’t want any money from the grass roots, do they?
Ya know, they do NOT call me anymore. I s’pose a year and a half of getting my opinion of their pussyfooting ways finally got the message through.
This is true stupidity.
Why the RNC pick Steele over Blackwell makes me think they jes wanted a token.
I would neither be shocked nor surprised if we were to find out Mikie voted for the brutha.
Oh, so now Sherrod is the victim of that racist predator Breitbart. OK.
“CNN getting it wrong again.”
The lie is on purpose. The socialists (including their propaganda outlets like CNN) see this as war, and therefore outright lies, cheating, distortions, misrepresentations are perfectly fine and effective weapons to use. Even moral, as far as they are concerned because they’re fighting a greater “evil” - freedom.
No more money to the RNC from me period.
Perhaps the RNC would like to invite Shirley’s husband:
dump Steele uncerimoniously and let the sparks fly
it will make not one tenth a percentage point difference in how blacks vote
and I will feel better
the national RNC seems to mimic the hold moderates have on the GOP here in Tennessee
Once again, Republicans bow to the leftists because it’s easier than doing their own thinking.
The real story here is that the NAACP members comprising the audience cheered when Sherrod stated she had screwed a white guy solely on the basis of his race.
They didn’t wait for the part where she claimed to have put her racism aside and in fact they couldn’t have cared less if she did.
To them the important part of the story is that she used her position of power to stick it to Whitey.
The gutless Republicans should be clearly stating their objections to the NAACP approval of racism instead of teaming with leftists to disparage Breitbart.
Brietbart willlive to skewer DEMS another day!!! GO ANDREW!!
AMEN....money to ANDREW BEFORE THE RNC!!
UNCLE POWELL!!!!!! HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAH!!! GREAT ONE!!!!! STANDING OVATION!!!
Your plan is way, way too smart.
If the RNC was that smart we wouldn’t be in the mess we’re in right now. We wouldn’t have gotten here in the first place.
Might as well make LAURA BUSH the Chairwoman of the RNC!! DEMOCRAT.
>>”Meanwhile I support conservative candidates running in any state.”<<
Mrs. panax and I left the GOP and registered with the Conservative Party. When they purge the RINO’s maybe we’ll come back, maybe.
These people are such pussies
You are so right!
Not one of them with cojones!
Instead of getting rid of him, let’s just set up a parallel unit. Sarah Palin can head it, gather national funds for conservative folks. Maybe call it Conservative National Committee instead of Republican NC. Could overlap when feasible, contribute to conservatives when RINOS were backed by the RNC. Flex muscles.
Donate to Breitbart? Please post how-to.
Exactly my first thought when I read this.
RNC is dead to me!
Not one penny more.
