Which raises the question – knowing where the original video came from, and Brietbart’s established reputation to lie and creatively edit…
WTF did the Obama Administration go chickenshit?
This was truly a “High-tech lynching!”
And no less criminal than the old lynching.
NAACP leaders are calling on the Obama administration to reconsider its ousting of a black Agriculture Department worker who was pushed out of her job over racially tinged remarks, reversing their previous criticism of the employee.
employee Shirley Sherrod expressed racist sentiments at a local NAACP meeting in Georgia earlier this year. Jealous said conservative activist Andrew Breitbart, whose website posted video of Sherrod’s remarks, deceived millions of people by releasing only partial clips. He said the full video makes clear that Sherrod was telling a story of racial unity.
Now that the NAACP has watched the full video of Shirley Sherrod’s speech, it has retracted its criticism of the former USDA employee and called on the government to restore her job, reports AP. The group, which initially professed to be “appalled,” says it was “snookered by Fox News and Tea Party Activist Andrew Breitbart into believing she had harmed white farmers because of racial bias,” notes Politico.
