Andrew Breitbart and Archie Bunker. I’ll let you guess which bigoted assbite is which.
I didn’t think that it was possible for me to fucking hate anyone more than I hate Glenn Fucking Beck and Sarah Palin-Quayle, but now I have wingnutty blogger Andrew Breitbart as a serious contender.
Breitbart is the fucking racist liar who started the whole Shirley Sherrod brouhaha — but now the wingnutty pussy claims that he’s the victim.
This is what the wingnutty protofascists do: strike first, and then, when they get blowback (fairly predictably), they claim that they’re the poor victims.
The Mormon cult, for instance, struck first against California’s non-heterosexual community when it pumped millions of dollars into the Proposition H8 campaign at the last minute. When the non-heterosexual community struck back against the theocratic, “Christo”fascist, anti-American, freedom-hating Mormon cult, the Mormon motherfuckers (redundant) acted as though they’d just been minding their own fucking business when the non-heterosexual community just decided to up and attack them for no reason whatsofuckingever.
Back to Breitbart: “I am public enemy No. 1 or 2 to the Democratic Party, the progressive movement and the Obama administration based upon the successes my journalism has had,” he proclaimed to Politico today. (Whether he primarily was boasting or whining I’m not certain, although my bet is on the former.)
Yes, right, that’s it: Breitbart is experiencing blowback right now not because his racist, bold-faced lie about Shirley Sherrod got the nation into a race-based uproar over nothing, but because he’s another fucking Edward R. Murrow. (Breitbart the brave refused to answer Politico’s question as to whether he would do things differently if he could do it over again. He did, however, claim that a higher journalistic standard is held to him than would be held to a non-white.)
I hope that she does. And that she wins.
Of course, the wingnuts would have a field day with that, too; it would be more “proof” of “white victimhood.” Oh, well. Let them. And fuck them.
Sherrod reportedly still hasn’t decided whether or not she’ll accept the Obama administration’s offer to return to the U.S. Department of Agriculture after it wrongfully forced her to resign.
I still hope that she refuses the offer, and I like it that she’s taking her time in making her decision.
She is, I think, showing us the importance of not jumping into things, but deliberating things.
If Sonia Sotomayor is a “wise Latina,” then Sherrod is a wise black woman who has a lot to teach us. I hope that she writes a book, because she certainly has a lot more to teach us about the black American experience than does Barack Obama, who was raised by white people and who is not the descendant of African slaves — and who is so petrified of raising the issue of race that he sells black Americans down the river instead of protecting them from their white-supremacist lynch mobs.
Of course, aside from the lesson that it’s unwise to jump the gun and that once you’ve fired your bullet you can’t take it back, the other lesson here is that one always, always must consider the source.
Andrew Breitbart, Faux “News” and the rest of the treasonous wingnuts hardly are credible sources of fact.
This has been glaringly obvious for years now. Anyone who doesn’t get it now is a lost fucking cause.
