Breitbart Utterly Destroys Something

Andrew Breitbart has posted ASTOUNDING VIDEO PROOF that the NAACP is a virulently racist organization, just like he threatened to do! Wow, this is powerful stuff.

Let me sum it up; Breitbart has EARTH-SHATTERING video of Shirley Sherrod, USDA Georgia Director of Rural Development, speaking at the 2009 NAACP Freedom Fund dinner in Georgia. But wait, it gets even worse.

Sherrod tells a story about a white farmer who patronizes and condescends to her, which leads to her not wanting to go out of her way to help the guy. She ends up referring him to a white lawyer to continue pursuing his case.

Can you BELIEVE IT! I don’t know how the NAACP will ever recover from Andrew Breitbart’s devastating master stroke.

OK, I’m being a little sarcastic. This is actually really really stupid and inconsequential.

I did love this line from Breitbart’s long, rambling, race-baiting rant, though:

The NAACP and the Congressional Black Caucus do not want racial harmony. They want political victory, and the race card is their Strativarius.

Now that’s refudiating ‘em, Andrew!

UPDATE at 7/19/10 5:14:36 pm:

And Breitbart collects another scalp — Sherrod has resigned from the USDA.

UPDATE at 7/19/10 6:10:26 pm:

LGF reader “teh mantis” provides some important context for this misleading video:

The whole story is BS. Brietbart has conveniently edited out the context of this story, but he forgot one crucial detail. Notice where she says that the story took place just after Chapter 12 bankruptcy was established for family farms? Andrew really should have edited that out. You know why? Chapter 12 was so established in 1986. What was Shirley Sherrod doing in 1986? She was running the New Communities black farm coop in Georgia. She was not employed by the government in any way. Some white farmer called a black coop looking for help. She helped him, but not as much as she “could” if, you know, he were a black farmer and thus would have some interest in the coop. They also gave farmers help restructuring their loans and whatnot, so she referred him to a lawyer who could help him, despite his condescending attitude.

I should also note that the her coop and the associate RDLN recently won a $1 billion+ settlement for black farmers after they were systematically denied loans provided to white farmers in the early eighties, complements of Ronnie Reagan (Pigford v. Glickman). But we all know it was those black farmers banding together in their cooperative farming blackness that are the real racists.
