Andrew Breitbart offered a $100,000 reward to any video proving tea party protesters called several black politicians the N word on the day the bill was voted in. Even though there were scads of videographers and journalists there that day, none came forward.
Brietbart finally got a retraction from the NY Times, which was one of many papers making the bogus claim, after he proved his case that it never happened by editing together five video tapes of the incident.
The NAACP, however, continues to make the false claim. And they went after Breitbart when he was blamed for the brief firing of USDA employee Shirley Sherrod, who has a sordid past. The left has been in full effect trying to tar Breitbart with a racist brush, as they do to anyone they don’t like. Yet let’s look at who’s doing the name calling.
The NAACP is hardly in a position to call anyone racist. If anything, they have a sad history of bigotry and extremism to answer for.
The word racist has become the last of the left’s trump cards when they run out of ammo against someone. And that card has become so frayed and pathetic due to it’s long over use, it has lost it’s punch. Especially when people can throw it right back at them. Shirley Sherrod says she wants to sue Breitbart for airing a video of her saying she didn’t want to help a poor white farmer. Which is hilarious given her own husband has made staggering racist claims and is a black separatist. She herself helped engineer a $13 million payout for her old farm coop, based on what appears to be bogus charges of, you guessed it, racism against the federal government.
Lefties better be ready for the backlash that may come from over using the R word.
