American Spectator Publishes Another Dishonest Sherrod Hit Piece

It should be no surprise to find American Spectator, the magazine that plays host to white supremacist blogger Robert Stacy McCain, running an absolutely vile 4000-word attack piece on Shirley Sherrod today.

Jeffrey Lord says Sherrod lied in her speech to the NAACP when she talked about the murder of a black man by a white sheriff, because she called it a “lynching.” Lord says this murder could not have been a lynching because the black man wasn’t hanged from a tree. Yes, really; that’s his disgusting point: The American Spectator : Sherrod Story False.

Last week after this story broke, I predicted that the right would now redouble their efforts to smear Sherrod. But this takes the nastiness to a whole new level. The American Spectator should be embarrassed to publish such a naked piece of race-baiting ugliness, but I know they are not.

And for the record, they also have no problem when one of their writers publicly labels Mexicans as “beaners.”

UPDATE at 7/26/10 10:44:45 am:

Some of the other writers for American Spectator are slightly uncomfortable with this approach.
