Team Obama was not happy yesterday with the news of black on white racism in the Ag department. The video was not something they could dispute. Fox News was all over it. Breitbart released it to make the point that the NAACP is a fraud when it comes to accusing others of racism. His whole point was the NAACP should clean its own house first. Amen to that.
I can imagine the President was furious. Even the NAACP said Sherrod was wrong. Hold the phone… Surely Team Obama can change this narrative.
And change it they did. The spinmeisters worked overtime to come up with a plan. They put it into motion and the willing media bought it hook, line and sinker.
It was a Speedy Flip-Flop: The White House actually apologizes to a Black Racist Employee & Says Her Firing was an “Injustice!”
It is amazing and sad to see how far our great nation has retreated since President Obama took office. The Department of Black Justice, headed up by Eric “Nation of Cowards” Holder, has racist policies to drop cases where the offender is black and the victim is white. Loretta King and Thomas Perez are in charge of that effort, according to testimony given before a congressional committee.
So when Tom Vilsack, Agriculture Secretary, did the right thing by firing a racist employee, the heat was turned up high. The lying NAACP which made up claims of racism by the Tea Party, has now flip-flopped on its condemnation of Ag Worker Shirley Sherrod, caught on tape admitting her previous racism. They now say Sherrod is the victim because the story she was telling was about how she came to realize that racism is wrong and that she should focus instead on poverty regardless of skin color.
Team Obama was upset yesterday when the narrative was that Fox News and Andrew Breitbart told the truth, found a racist employee and she was canned. Team Obama can’t just sit by and let Fox News be correct about something!
So the damage control team moved into high gear. Wait, watch the tape again, they said… this was all taken out of context, they claimed! None of it was taken out of context by Fox, Breitbart or ConservativeAmerican.org. For a “born again” defender of poverty, her behavior on the tape in March of this year is quite odd to say the least!
Sherrod chuckles and smiles about a time she says was 20+ years ago when she purposefully used racism to discriminate against a white farmer. That is her conversion?! She thinks it is funny?! Oh she’s good at playing the victim though.
“An embarrassed White House apologized on Wednesday to a black Agriculture Department employee who was ousted for her remarks about race, saying the administration did not know all the facts when she was fired.White House spokesman Robert Gibbs called the dismissal of Shirley Sherrod an injustice and a mistake and said he was apologizing for the “entire administration.” He said Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack was trying to reach her to extend an apology.”I accept the apology,” Sherrod said on CNN after watching Gibbs talk to reporters at a televised briefing. But she said the apology took too long and she wasn’t sure if she wanted her job back.”I just don’t know at this point, I don’t know,” she said, adding that she would be surprised if Vilsack offered her the job.Gibbs said Obama had been briefed as the situation developed.”He talked about the fact that a disservice had been done, an injustice had happened and, because the facts had changed, a review of the decision based on those facts should be taken,” Gibbs said.”
ConservativeAmerican.org points out the only injustice here is how the media, now fully in bed with the Obama administration, just switches the story on a dime because the NAACP leader and the President asked them too.
Watch the tape! Your ears won’t lie to you and neither will your eyes! She smiles and chuckles about hurting the white farmer. That’s not a sign of regret!
Now she says she accepts the apology, but it took too long?! That’s ridiculous! This was a very speedy flip-flop!
And in March, when she says on tape it is not about race anymore, she interrupts herself and takes it back (a fact ignored by the White House the NAACP and the willing media still in love with President Barack Hussein Obama, their self-created solution to the world’s problems)! She says “It IS about white and black” and adds, “But then, you know…” Uh-huh. We know. Wink, wink. That’s her come to Jesus moment?!! Saying it really is about race?! That is what the NAACP and the White House base their apology on! Nonsense!
This White House is hell-bent to make sure racism against whites by blacks is TOLERATED. It’s wrong. The White House is wrong. The President is wrong. The NAACP is wrong (again). The media is wrong to go along with all of this. Sherrod shows no signs of any regret for her actions on the tape. When will the NAACP apologize to the tea party? When will the President apologize to the Tea Party?
