Enough of the Racism
I am sick to death of hearing about all the accusations of racism. Prior to the election of the first black president, nobody was discussing race except the typical race-baiters, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. It's like we're reliving the 60's without the violence.
When I first heard the story about Shirley Sherrod and her racist comment which was taken out of context, I actually felt sorry for her. However, I no longer feel sympathy for the woman. She is nothing more than a race-baiter. I take that back; she is more than a race-baiter as she has accused those who oppose Obama’s “let grandma die” healthcare plan of being racists. It's the socialized medicine we object to, not the black president leading the charge.
The far-left woman is also a commie who promotes class warfare. How many people do you know who have named their child “Russia”? My, she fits in perfectly with the rest of the Obama Administration.
Not surprisingly, the American Pravda has made this incident all about Andrew Breitbart and Fox News. What does Fox News have to do with this? A little too obsessed with Glenn Beck, aren't they? I suppose they knew Beck would cover this story because he's one of the few who hold Obama and his minions accountable for their actions.
Breitbart has had this video clip since April and chose to release it now because of the unfair classifying of Tea Partiers as racists. The NAACP, the real racists here, were quick to laugh when she confessed that she treated the white farmer unfairly. Where’s the outrage over their reaction to her comment? Of course, Sherrod is quick to say that there was no laughter over her comment from those at the NAACP. Liar!
And speaking of Breitbart, he offered $100,000 to anyone who could come up with a tape that showed racism by Tea Partiers during the incident at the Capitol with John Lewis during the healthcare debate. Surprise, surprise, not a soul has come forth with evidence and claimed the big prize. Apparently, the great civil rights hero John Lewis is also a liar.
Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack lied when he said the White House was not involved in the decision to fire Sherrod. If that were the case, then why did she say the following:
“’They asked me to resign, and, in fact, they harassed me as I was driving back to the state office from West Point, Georgia yesterday,’ Sherrod told CNN. I had at least three calls telling me the White House wanted me to resign…and the last one asked me to pull over to the side of the road and do it.
Sherrod said the final call came from Cheryl Cook, an undersecretary at the Department of Agriculture. Sherrod said White House officials wanted her to quit immediately because the controversy was ‘going to be on Glenn Beck tonight.’”
Why would Shirley mention the involvement by the White House if it were not the case? Vilsack is covering for Obama.
Interesting that this surfaces as we remember the event that occurred last year at this time when President Obama was quick to rush to judgment without all the facts when he accused the Cambridge police officer of “acting stupidly”. It seems Obama and his regime “acted stupidly” when they rushed to can Sherrod before getting all the facts.
Incidentally, Shirley Sherrod and her husband's group New Communities, Inc, sued and received $13 million in the Pigford vs. USDA lawsuit claiming racial discrimination. Is this a case of reparations?
What’s most disturbing is the fact that this nonsense is a huge distraction from Obama's destructive policies which is what we should all be discussing.
