Another White Right Smear

Today is Thursday, 22 July 2010.

Once upon a time, there was an Andrew Breitbart. Andy runs a for-profit hard-right propaganda business on the Internet, and thinks of himself as a journalistic publishing mogul. (After all, he has good genes: he calls himself “Matt Drudge’s bitch”.)

One hot summer day, Anonymous Source sent Andy the video of a speech, purporting to show Shirely Sherrod, a Black woman, at an NAACP fundraiser, speechifying bigotly against whites. So, like any self-respecting hard-right journalist, Andy didn’t bother with that liberal “check it out” crap, he just went viral.

Boo boo!

When the entire tape surfaced, it turns out that the Black woman fights the good fight for both white and Black farmers.

So Glenn de la Beckwith starts blubbering, and chalking “Set up!” all over his board. See, some conniving liberal knew Andy had no journalistic professionalism, and that Pride Goeth Before a Fall, and, like the Serpent in the Garden of Eden, lured poor little innocent Andy into stepping in “a special pile of human excrement”. (Which latter is what Andy called Ted Kennedy, after the latter was dead, since Andy doesn’t have the wherewithal “down there” to have said it to his face.)

Some claim that Breitbart made “an honest mistake” in not verifying the initial tape. Puh-leeze: he’s a smart male with an engorged ego who delights in telling you how smart he is. So he should go with a variation on the Enron Etc. Defense: “I know I said I should be paid big bucks cuz I’m a genius, but actually I’m dumb as a turd and didn’t know nothin’ ‘bout any illegalities”?

The truth is that a racist smear attempt imploded, and blew poo all over little Andy.

The recent NAACP convention passed a resolution calling on the Tea Party movement to repudiate white supremacist elements in its midst. Teabaggers responded by falsely claiming that this meant the NAACP was saying the Tea Party movement as a whole is racist. This is the context in which Breitbart tried to smear Sherrod and the NAACP by releasing the doctored tape.

When will the Teabagger poobahs explain why, if a large national debt is so bad, that many of them supported Reagan and the two Bushes, who promoted adding some 2/3 of the national debt, and only woke up to the badness when the president was Black?

Well said, HH. And I'm going to echo fubarbeliever's sentiments:

"As you grow older, you'll see white men cheat black men every day of your life, but let me tell you something and don't you forget it - whenever a white man does that to a black man, no matter who he is , how rich he is, or how fine a family he comes from, that white man is trash." To Kill A Mockingbird, Chapter 23
