OK – Matt Stone and Trey Parker are writing this story arc now, aren’t they? From Dan Riehl:

Anderson Cooper Defines Irony – and the Litmus of the Left
Oh, where to start?
“… has been dragged through the mud and has had to prove she’s not a racist. This can happen to anyone and it’s not right. Imagine it happening to you.”
Um, it has.
… House Democratic leaders took a different tack: One senior aide has been circulating a document to the media that debunks the effort as one driven by corporate lobbyists and attended by neo-Nazis…
In addition, the tea parties are “not really all about average citizens,” the document continues, saying neo-Nazis, militias, secessionists and racists are attending them.
What about getting placed on a DHS watch list?
Where was the media coverage then?
Oh. Right. The left believes freedom is only found on the Democrat plantation, it doesn’t fit the media’s narrative.
As I said on King last night, apparently, I’m one of few who’s actually read the original post, watched the original video, and watched the entire 45-minute-15-second video in its entirety. Some points.
– People need to get out a dictionary and look up “exculpatory.”
– The original post and video was to highlight the applause of discrimination towards a white farmer. It was given in context.
– The original video was not “doctored” nor “out of context,” and the irony is that those making such statements are actually taking the context away from its original presentation. Sherrod was building to a lesson in her speech – but went on later in her speech to talk about how people who support HCR are racist, essentially. It’s at 23:53 in. Look, I did your homework for you.
“I Haven’t seen such mean-spirited people as I’ve seen lately over this issue of health care. Some of this racism we thought was buried didn’t it surface?” Now we endured eight years of the Bushes and we didn’t do the stuff that these Republicans are doing because you have a black president.”
Um … soooo people who wanted to make their own medical decisions over their own bodies were doing it because they were racist?
While I’m continuing to do your homework and critical thinking for you, check this at 25:00 in:
“I couldn’t say 45-years ago, I couldn’t stand here and say what I will say to you tonight … God helped me to see that it’s not just about black people, it’s about poor people.”
Why can’t it just be about PEOPLE? PEOPLE, PERIOD?
Sherrod is using race to stoke class warfare and promote Marxist principles. The dude from the Daily Beast on last night’s panel committed a massive facepalm when he tried to deny this in defense of Sherrod but went on to parrot her remarks as a way to push the need for economic equality.
You don’t achieve equality by tearing everyone down equally. You promote equality by giving people the opportunity to exercise their free will and make of themselves what they will. You promote equality by not killing school choice by way of vouchers, or killing small business with penalties via health control.
This began because the left is losing in the arena of public opinion.
They’re losing because people now see the full scope of their policies:

So they double-down on race and make an already hyper-paranoid state of racial awareness even crazier. In a rock-throwing fight in a climate they created, they took out one of their political own. The White House, the USDA fired Sherrod, not Andrew Breitbart, not Fox News, not anyone else.
Liberals, unable to hold a government in which they’ve invested the entirety of their credibility, deflect and attack conservatives for holding the story up – not their own ideology which tried to spear a movement which now encompasses half the country and has gone mainstream – so they don’t have to implicate their own rhetoric. Doing so would mean they have to back down and debate their policies on merit, and, as you can see from the accumulating public opinion, you’re not going to convince folks to support big government and wasteful spending.
It also shows the litmus test of the left: they’re only willing to come to the aid of a black American if that American shares their liberal ideology. Obama didn’t call Kenneth Gladney after he was beaten, he didn’t call Cedra Crenshaw when the Chicago machine got scared of a conservative black woman entering their ring and tried to run her (unsuccessfully) off the ballot.
The grassroots movement shares more in common with the communities that the left tries to exploit than the left shares with them. All of this is smoke and mirrors to obfuscate the truth.
That’s not empowering, liberating, freeing, nor choice.
Do a story on that, Cooper.
NAACP to Stand Up to Left Bigotry?
Deneen Borelli is fantastic.
“They said those things about Condoleezza Rice … they said those things about Colin Powell …”
Who is THEY?
Where did those remarks come from?
Oh, they came from a LIBERAL talker.
When Gladney was called an uncle Tom, when Lt. Col. Allen West, Hermain Cain, Alfonzo Rachel, Cedra Crenshaw, Andre Harper, I could go on, are called racial slurs, where do those slurs, as reported by them, come from?
They come from the left.
I agree and am glad to see that the NAACP is going to stand up to the political ideology that purports to support its goals while tearing down members of the black community if they aren’t liberal. I’ve yet to see a liberal defend a black conservative – and it’s interesting to note: no one knew Kenneth Gladney’s politics before extending him the support he deserved. Frankly, I still don’t know the man’s politics, being that the first time I saw him was across the street at a rally where he was selling pro-Obama buttons. He’s a capitalist. That’s the extent of what people know. But of course, the right didn’t ask him to fill out a form and cite his political allegiance before determining whether or not we would help him.
When the left is willing to talk the talk and walk the walk, then we’ll get somewhere.
I hope Shelton keeps his word.
NAACP Wants to Make Neverland a State Park
Forget educational inequality and the left’s attack on school choice and opportunity, the NAACP has more pressing issues they feel deserve attention. After condemning the tea party movement, the NAACP turned its attention to turning Michael Jackson’s estate into a state park. Facepalm:
A resolution is in the works to order state parks officials to study converting the roughly 2,600-acre property into a state park. The state NAACP is backing the idea, and a lawmaker has signaled he is on board to carry the legislation.
“I think Michael’s history is world history and I think it would become the No. 1 attraction for the state parks if we could pull it off,” said state NAACP President Alice Huffman, who also serves on the state Parks Commission.
MO GOP 1st District Candidate Calls Out NAACP
When it was first brought to my attention that the NAACP had used their bully pulpit to condemn the Tea Party movement in one of its first acts of its national convention, branding those who associate themselves with it as racist, I laughed at the absolute duplicity of it. I asked myself, “at what point did the Tea Party movement become such a threat to the coffers of the NAACP that they felt the need to fire a broadside salvo against them?” Has what was once a historical organization that spearheaded the advancement of civil rights become a faction of jealous rage?” but most importantly I asked once question…“WHO DESIGNATED THE NAACP AS THE ARBITERS OF ALL THAT COULD BE DEEMED RACIST RATHER INDIVIDUALLY OR COLLECTIVELY?”
