Breitbart Digs In

If you were waiting for an apology from Andrew Breitbart for his role in the Shirley Sherrod affair, you'll still be waiting. This morning has a series of stories on Big Government attacking others in the media for missing context in the story and one about Congressman Steve King demanding an investigation into the hiring of Shirley Sherrod.

In fact, on his show, Bill O'Reilly did apologize for initially getting it wrong.

That's something that Breitbart still refuses to do. He says that the video was released to show the reaction of the NAACP and not an attack on Ms. Sherrod. Furthermore, he says that two clips were shown initially and the second clip did show Ms. Sherrod talking about her redemption. That's dubious. Here's how Breitbart introduced the first video.

In the first video, Sherrod describes how she racially discriminates against a white farmer. She describes how she is torn over how much she will choose to help him. And, she admits that she doesn’t do everything she can for him, because he is white. Eventually, her basic humanity informs that this white man is poor and needs help. But she decides that he should get help from “one of his own kind”. She refers him to a white lawyer.

Sherrod’s racist tale is received by the NAACP audience with nodding approval and murmurs of recognition and agreement. Hardly the behavior of the group now holding itself up as the supreme judge of another groups’ racial tolerance.

The second video includes a caption that says this,

There is no accountability in government and you can't get fired.

Furthermore, Breitbart has also admitted that he never reached out to Sherrod for comment nor did he attempt to get the full video. Meanwhile, Ann Coulter was on Sean Hannity last night claiming that the real villain is the individual that gave the edited tape to Breitbart.

Finally, since we've learned more about Ms. Sherrod, she also appears to be a far left radical with her own set of questionable statements including this one about FNC.

I am just a pawn. I was just here. They are after a bigger thing, they would love to take us back to where we were many years ago. Back to where black people were looking down, not looking white folks in the face, not being able to compete for a job out there and not be a whole person.

So, it appears as though there will be few heroes here.
