Rick Sanchez and Dan Abrams went on an on about the treatment of Shirley Sherrod by Fox News, Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly, and Andrew Breitbart. Paraphrased… …these scummy right-wingers should never have called on Shirley Sherrod to resign based on the heavily edited video on Breitbart’s BigGovernment.com… …even though the video was not edited by any of these personalities and O’Reilly qualified his call for her resignation based on the validity of the video he had seen.
At no point from 7:05 – 7:17pm on July 22, 2010, did Sanchez or Abrams mention THAT IT WAS ABHORRENT TO BE RACIST IN 1986. Their continued screed against the aforementioned pundits never gave one thought to the fact that in 1986, 22 years after the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Shirley Sherrod executed her charge in a racist manner. Not only that, she sued the USDA for $13,000,000 and then was given the job to dole out loans to struggling farmers.
Tom Vilsack, CNN, President Obama, MSNBC and a host of other lefties have now chimed in to concur… …24 years ago in 1986, it was just fine with them to be a reverse racist.
So, at what point did it stop being acceptable to be a reverse racist? Or did it?
As I travel to Las Vegas, I double-down on the call for her resignation!
