Breitbart's Video Highlights NAACP's Reaction NOT Shirley Sherrod's Words...


Andrew Breitbart said that he'd publish at least one video of the NAACP itself cheering racism....and Breitbart made good on that promise today at Big Government, with a video that showed USDA official Shirley Sherrod explaining to an appreciative NAACP audience in July 2009 how she deliberately withheld information from a white farmer in Georgia trying to save his land and his business. Ms. Sherrod has since resigned her position. Her subsequent turn, where she apparently came to the realization that, "It's not black and white, it's about the haves and have-nots. It's about helping those in need," was met with far LESS enthusiasm.

Some ask, "Why so many people applaud a tale of overt discrimination, while tepidly receiving the final redemptive tale, in public?"

The simple answer is that to SOME people, apparently including a significant number of the political class (career politicians, career academics and dinosaur media types), "SOME bigotries (ie. anti-WHITE, especially anti-WHITE Male and anti-Christian bigotry) are A-OK! There's really no other possible explanation. After all, the mainstream media pretty much ignored the New Black Panther "Voter Intimidation case," and ignored this story UNTIL it could be spinned as the smearing of Shirley Sherrod, instead of the indictment of the NAACP attendees who wildly cheered her story of anti-white bigotry, but only politely applauded the redemptive portion of that tale.

In this video, Ms. Sherrod explains in painstaking detail how she apparently read the farmer in question's mind ("he was trying to show me how superior he was to me"), then goes on to describe how she's torn over how much she should help him, admitting that she doesn’t do everything she can for him, because he's white. Eventually, her basic humanity informs that this white man is poor and needs help. But she decides that he should get help from “one of his own kind”. She refers him to a white lawyer.

The most astounding thing of all, and the point of this video is how well the racist portion of Shirley Sherrod’s tale is received by an NAACP audience. Not exactly the behavior you'd expect from the group that's now holding itself up as the final arbiter of another groups’ racial tolerance.
