Enough is enough! Grow a spine, already.
Andrew Breitbart, the same lying ratbastard who gave us the edited ACORN tapes has struck again, this time producing heavily edited dishonest and dishonorable tapes purporting to show a black woman USDA employee's racism against a poor white couple, when in fact the exact opposite was true. Not only that, but the omissions continued, as Fox conveniently left out the part that this occurred 24 years ago when Ms. Sherrod wasn't even in the federal government's employ.
What we see IN CONTEXT is the evolution of a thought process in which Ms. Sherrod, confronted for the first time with the reality of a poor white farm family reexamines her preconceptions and comes to realize that it's about black and white poverty, and not about race. In Oprahspeak, this would be called a lightbulb moment, which guided and informed Ms. Sherrod's career to this day, as she went on to help countless white farm families in dire financial straits.
Shame on AG Secretary Vilsack and the jellyfish denizens of the WH for buckling to Fox News and Breitbart, who are utterly despicable excuses for humanity. Ms. Sherrod deserves our respect and admiration. That she was three times harassed by calls from a WH hack, told to pull over, and then resign immediately, is shameful!
Make this right, Sec. Vilsack, or the WH will lose whatever tepid support its disgusted base still can muster, and not gain it back.
For anyone remotely interested in the truth, please watch the context of this story:
"An ideologue injects poison into the internet, other people rush to judgment on camera, and an administration gets stampeded and commits this travesty of justice. The NAACP has at least had the courage to come back and say 'we were wrong' and apologize. Now the administration needs to do the same thing. The president -- tonight -- ought to order the Agriculture Department to reopen this case, give this woman a fair hearing, and -- if the facts are as they seem -- reinstate her with an apology. Indeed, I think she deserves a whole lot more than an apology. I think she deserves honor for her attempts to bring people together."
