Sherrod Story False, Shirley Sherrod’s Husband Is Also A Racist, What Are We Discussing Racism? Jobs, Economy, National Security I Think Are More Important, Van Jones - Nigga Please, Do You Men Drive With One Hand or Two?

Sherrod Story False - American Spectator

It isn't true.

Shirley Sherrod's story in her now famous speech about the lynching of a relative is not true. The veracity and credibility of the onetime Agriculture Department bureaucrat at the center of the explosive controversy between the NAACP and conservative media activist Andrew Breitbart is now directly under challenge. By nine Justices of the United States Supreme Court. All of them dead.

Why are we discussing racism? - Big Government - Star Parker

Can anyone tell me why suddenly race is the hot topic of national discourse?

According to Gallup polling of last week, the issues most on the minds of Americans are the economy and jobs followed by dissatisfaction with all aspects of government.
I didn’t notice racism on the list anywhere.

The NAACP says it was “snookered” by Fox News on the Shirley Sherrod story.

I say we’ve all been snookered by the NAACP.

The NAACP has shown that those who have written this organization off as irrelevant are wrong. It demonstrated this past week that if it so chooses it can dominate the national discussion with its racial agenda, regardless of what the real pressing issues of national concern may be.

The accusation about Tea Party racism is ridiculous. But even if you don’t think it’s ridiculous, is this the discussion we nee d to be having when national unemployment hovers at ten percent, and when black unemployment is closer to 15%, double that of whites?

Now, of course, we should be talking about racism if this is what is driving black unemployment. But is it?

I don’t think so. Nor do most blacks.

In January of this year, well into our recession, and well into the emergence of the Tea Party movement, the Pew Research Center surveyed black attitudes.

In answer to the question, “When blacks don’t make progress, who or what is to blame?”, 52% of blacks responded that “blacks” themselves are “mostly responsible”, and 34% said “racism.” This is the reverse of how blacks responded to this question just 15 years ago, when 56% said that racism was the impediment to black progress.

In the same survey, blacks responded almost identically as whites to the question of w hether success in life is “determined by forces beyond one’s control” or whether “everyone has the power to succeed.”

Seventy-seven percent of blacks and 82% of whites said that “everyone has the power to succeed” and 16% of blacks and 12% whites said success is “determined by forces beyond one’s control.”

And when blacks were asked in this same survey about the main problems facing black families, the response was overwhelmingly exactly the same as the general result of the Gallup poll of last week. Jobs.

So, Americans of all colors today generally feel responsible for their own lives and the main concern of most is the sick state of our economy.

So let’s have that discussion.

Clearly, there are differences of opinion about how to light a fire under this economy and the role of government. Some think government is the answer.& nbsp; Some think it’s the problem.

But this is a difference of opinion about how the world works. Why are we talking about racism?

Racism is about people being persecuted and endangered because of their color. It’s about not being treated equally under the law or denied access to public facilities or work because of one’s color.

Fortunately, those ugly days are behind us. And aside from the political and legal truths that verify this, black attitudes themselves, as the Pew data bears out, support it. And, if we need further verification, sitting in the White House is a black man who is there with the help of 43% of the votes of white Americans.

Talk about racism may help employment for those in the race business. But it has little relevance to getting the American economy working again, which is what we should be single-mindedly focused on.

And allowing race to become the fo cus of public discourse shuts out the very message that blacks need to hear: that they are disproportionately hurt by a recession being prolonged by excessive government growth and interference.

How many lefties pushed the lie that Fox News got Sherrod fired? - Hot Air

Along with the LA Times, reports from Mediaite, the Washington Post, and others make one thing clear: nothing that aired on FNC could possibly have caused Ms Sherrod’s firing, because FNC aired nothing until after she was already gone. That’s not a matter of opinion; it’s fact. So now the fun begins, as the haters kick into high gear.

Let’s begin with one Rick Holmes, who calls the Sherrod firing “another Fox News hit”…

Latest Gallup poll more bad news for Democrats - Wizbang

Democrats' advantage in party identification continues to dwindle this year. Fewer Americans identify as Democrats, and more say they don't identify with or lean toward either party. On a state-by-state level, this means more states are now classified as competitive or leaning/solidly Republican than has been the case over the past two years, and fewer as leaning/solidly Democratic.

Van Jones: ‘Sherrod Is Like Rosa Parks’ - AIM

Former Obama Green Jobs Czar Van Jones who resigned after it was revealed that he signed a petition that called for an investigation into whether the Bush administration deliberately allowed the Sept. 11 attacks to happen gave a lengthy interview at the leftwing Netroots Nation in Las Vegas Saturday.



In the first segment Jones praised former USDA official Shirley Sherrod by comparing her to civil rights hero Rosa Parks and Sen. John Kerry for his work on climate change.

You know I’ve seen some comments by folks wondering why Yours Truly constantly brings down the hammer on retarded ass Negros dissing “his own people” this is why.

Let me be clear if I have not before, I don’t give a fuck what color you are. When you are a dumbass you need to called on it. In addition I will not sit by and allow myself to be placed in the same category as these idiot ass Negros like Sherrod, her idiot husband, Van Jones, Jessie Jackson, Obama name the idiot fuck Negro. Frankly I’m sick of this shit; I am so damn tired of all this racism shit and these idiots flaunting the race card you would have thought that the race card credits would have been used up by now.

I’m just venting folks, I know this shit is going to get worse before it gets better. I need to calm down...

Senator Barbara Boxer: serving in the military is like being a member of Congress - Daily Caller

At a campaign event over the weekend in Inglewood, California, Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer seemingly equated being a politician to serving in the military –- and an Iraq War veteran supporting Boxer’s November opponent is calling on her to apologize. “We know that if you have veterans in one place where they can befriend each other and talk to each other. You know when you’ve gone through similar things you need to share it. I don’t care whether you are a policeman or a fireman or a veteran or by chance a member of Congress,” the California senator said.

The Obama White House is too white. That is according to Maureen Dowd.
