Andrew Breitbart announced that he would publish at least one video of the NAACP itself cheering racism. Breitbart delivers on that promise today at Big Government, showing USDA official Shirley Sherrod explain to an appreciative NAACP audience in July 2009 how she deliberately withheld information from a white farmer in Georgia trying to save his land and his business:
Far from being a post-raicial presidency, this administration and it's loyal minions are undoing the work of an entire generation...they have in the course of a few short months undone the work of the past 50 years. This nation is now as polarized as it was at the height of the 1960's prior to the asssasination of Martin Luther King, Jr. Far from being proud, the NAACP, which was founded by 2 jewish lawyer and to black lawyers in 1905, they should be ashamed of what they have done over the past 5 years.

UPDATE: WCBS TV has picked up the story...and Ms. Sherrod has resigned. Here's a couple of comments from that story:
By David posted 44 minutes and 55 seconds ago " One absolutley certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans,French-Americans,Scaandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality" Teddy Roosevelt "You cannot become thorough Americans if you think of yourselves in groups. America does not consist of groups. A man who thinks of himself as belonging to a particular national group in America has not yet become an American" Woodrow Wilson Congratulations democrats, you are the party of identity politics.So much for a "post-racial" presidency...reap what you sew, Mr. Obama.
By Sparky2 posted 1 hr(s) 37 minutes and 53 seconds ago I think to be a 'racist' doesn't have the same stigma it once had. Everyone would agree to discrimnate against someone just because of their race is wrong. However, we have seen so much reverse discrimination along with blacks being the biggest 'racists' in the country, example how they vote for black candidates just because they are black (look at the black senate candidate in SC, or the huge 97% black vote for Obama, to name a few. If someone voted for a white candidate just because they were white, they would be labeled a racist. Another example, the virtual zero coverage by the national media on the New Black Panther Party that intimidated voters at the polls, whereas if it was a KKK member they would have been ostricized by the media. So, now when a person or group is labeled a 'racist', in some cases, it may actually help them
By lawlak posted Mon Jul 19 2010 5:51:53 PM I am sure the Obama Department of Justice is going to investigate this obvious case of racism against the white male by a government official. I am sure that the Civil Rights Division is all over this. Oh wait, they only investigate racism against blacks and not against whites. This is probably actually encouraged by the DOJ. Remember that in November when you vote. Flag/Report offensive Comment
By isnrblog posted Mon Jul 19 2010 5:44:01 PM A white person would get slammed for making such statements. NAALCP, National Association for the Advancement of Liberal Colored People. Blacks are just as racist if not more so than whites. So "here I was faced with having to help a white person save their land. So I didn't give him the full force of what I could do. I did enough," No you didn't. You didn't give him the "full force" of what you could do. So "Shirley Sherrod, USDA Rural Development Georgia State Director," an employee of the Federal Government openly acted racist. I am calling for her to be fired.
UPDATE: Here is an important commentary on this whole thing:
One thing about the NAACP video of Shirley Sherrod…that nobody is mentioning.Indeed, look closely at the audience's reaction...it's complete agreement and approval.
Look at the crowd reaction when she says this. Is there shock? Is there disgust? Is there anger? Nope, they are with her all the way.
That says more about the NAACP than anything Sherrod did. The NAACP didn’t reject Shirley Sherrod that night or last week because they never had a problem with what she said.
If Andrew Brietbart didn’t put out that video they would still be behind her. The only reason why Ben Jealous et/al have rejected Sherrod is because what she said to them behind closed doors in the past has been exposed to the general public. It is the same as Barack Obama and Rev Wright, if those videos of Wright didn’t exist he would be a regular guest at the White House today.
It would be very interesting to find people in that crowd and ask them if they had a problem with what she said when she said it.
