Shirley Sherrod, who recently was lynched by the right-wing “media,” says she “definitely” is going to sue lying right-wing racist blogger Andrew Breitbart for defamation.
The response of the racist right wing (redundant) to Sherrod only further proves their racism.
Presumably, Breitbart’s stance remains that his heavily altered video “proving” that Sherrod actually is a “racist” (when, in fact, she was talking about racial reconciliation in her speech) was “not about Shirley Sherrod.” (He just told the world that you’re a racist, Shirley, but don’t take it personally!)
“Andrew Breitbart is going to be fine. He’s done nothing wrong,” Politico quotes assbite Brent Bozell, president of the wingnutty Media Research Center, as having huffed and puffed. “I wonder if Ms. Sherrod, who is such a champion of transparency, will publicly disclose who is putting her up to this. And I also hope this champion of honesty will stop lying about Fox News. I’m also waiting for Ms. Sherrod to publicly apologize for accusing anyone opposed to nationalized health care of being racist. Last time I checked, that was more than half the country.”
Uh, when did Sherrod ever say that those who stupidly oppose health care reform, like the chickens pledging their allegiance to Colonel Sanders, are racist? She didn’t. So that isn’t just a stretch — it’s just a fucking lie. So Brent Bozell is a fucking liar. He continues the lynching of Shirley Sherrod by spewing forth even more fucking lies about her.
And I love Bozell’s assertion that someone “put” Sherrod “up” to suing someone who clearly defamed her.
Because a black woman, you know, on her own, just wouldn’t have the brains or the courage to sue someone when she has been wronged. It must be a vast left-wing conspiracy. There can be no other explanation!
Sherrod also says that she quite understandably refuses to go on Faux “News.” I never would go on that Fascist “News” Network, either. Nor would I attend a KKK or “tea party” gathering. There are just certain low-lifes with whom I never voluntarily would associate.
Anyway, I hope that Sherrod sues and wins a huge chunk of change from Breitbart. But I would fully expect his fellow Klan members to help him out with donations in that event.
