Shirley Sherrod says she’ll never
work for the government again

Washington Post, by Helena Andrews

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 1/14/2014 7:26:10 PM

Shirley Sherrod’s been busy. Too busy, in fact, to miss her brief tenure as a federal employee. “I just came back to my community and got involved again,” said Sherrod, who in 2010 was famously fired from her job with the USDA after being falsely accused of racism.(snip) “There are still people out there who think I’m a racist,” Sherrod told us in a recent interview. “Breitbart made it impossible for me to work for the federal government again.” It was the summer of 2010 when Andrew Breitbart, the late conservative blogger, published a doctored video of a little known Agriculture Department

Comments:
As I recall she was pretty much nailed as a stone cold racist.
I miss Andrew.

WaPo lies again. Breitbart did not"doctor"the video of Sherrod´s speech In fact, he posted the ENTIRE video. It was the press who deliberately excerpted and doctored the video for their own sensational purposes. They really are contemptible.

Now if we could get another million or so to promise never to work for the federal govenmnet again. Preferably anyone who was hired after January 20, 2009.

Shirley Sherrod received many millions from the corrupt Pigford Fund pushed by Obama...

He, Obama, fired her so as to sweep the story of Pigford under the rug and then called "Racist" on Breitbart.

Facts are stubborn things. Don´t expect any from WaPo, Obama or Sherrod.

Shirley doesn´t have to work for anybody again after the haul she (and everyone possible) made out on Pigford.

Didn´t she get a second payout after that ?

Wonder how her BP husband is these days ?

IIRC, Pigford payout to Shirley and her DH was $33 million the first time. Not sure if they got anything from Zippy´s Pigford payout. That was one of the first things he did after he was elected.

The WaPo knows very well that Sherrod admitted her racism and admitted making decisions in her job based on her racism.

Her racist audience is heard on the tape laughing with enjoyment at her "sticking it to whitey" (my words).

She claims in the same speech that she stopped that bias. (How virtuous of her!)

The WaPo is just hate speech with a veneer of newsworthiness.

Rep. Charles Rangel (D-Harlem) has suggested Tea Partiers were racists before, but was far blunter in a NY1 appearance Tuesday night in which he said they are “mean racist people.” Rangel managed to rip the self-style group of conservative in the same few sentences in which he mocked President Obama. “It’s hard for me to explain how you work with a President that thought he could really deal with the Republican leaders,” Rangel said. "He really thought, and maybe it is the water they drink at Harvard, that he could deal with the Tea Party. They are mean, racist people. Now why

Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya´alon is apologizing for the second time in two months about critical statements he made against the U.S. government. In the wake of tremendous anger in Washington, a telephone call between U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and a personal talk with the prime minister, Ya´alon told his American counterpart, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, that there was no defiance, criticism or intention to hurt the United States or Israel´s relations with its ally with his words.

President Barack Obama on Thursday ruled out a "military excursion" by the United States in Ukraine, saying that engaging Russia militarily "would not be appropriate." "We are not going to be getting into a military excursion in Ukraine," he said in an interview with KNSD in San Diego. "What we are going to do is mobilize all of our diplomatic resources to make sure that we´ve got a strong international coalition that sends a clear message, which is that Ukraine should decide their destiny."

There’s a reason why American men drive big pick-up trucks: women dig them. #According to The Washington Free Beacon, a new poll by Insure, an independent consumer insurance website, found that women think attractive men are most likely to be driving a pick-up truck. #The survey asked 2,000 men and women what type, brand and color of vehicle is driven by the “most fetching members of the opposite sex.” Ladies reported that desirable men are more likely to be driving, specifically, a black Ford truck - not a minivan or hybrid. #It would appear that the truck, which was once a purely utilitarian

State rejects plan for wind
power farm off Atlantic City

ATLANTIC CITY — New Jersey energy regulators took the air out of a $188 million plan to build a wind power farm off the coast of Atlantic City on Wednesday, rejecting the plan as too financially risky. The state Board of Public Utilities rejected a proposal by Fishermen’s Energy to build a windmill farm three miles off the state’s southern coast, deciding it placed too much potential risk of soaring electric bills for ratepayers. The proposal’s five turbines would have generated about 25 megawatts of electricity, but depended on a mixture of subsidies and federal grants to make sure ratepayers didn’t get

Iraq moves bill to legalise child

A bill before Iraq´s parliament that opponents say legalises child marriage and marital rape has sparked controversy ahead of elections as secular activists face off against the draft law´s backers. The bill, the Jaafari Personal Status Law, sets out rules to do with inheritance, marriage and divorce. Supporters of the draft, named after a Shiite Muslim school of jurisprudence, say it simply regulates practices already existing in day-to-day life. Opponents say the bill represents a step back for women´s rights in Iraq, and worry that it could further fray already fragile sectarian ties between the country´s various communities amid heightened violence ahead of

Remember that time the George W. Bush administration simultaneously invaded Russia, Iran, China, and North Korea? Apparently, according to the New York Times report today on the Obama administration’s foreign-policy readjustment, a former national-security aide to Obama does. The Times’s article is an in-depth look at how the Obama administration’s naïve worldview has shattered on the rocks of reality. Only they don’t know what to replace it with, because they still seem to think they’re running against George Bush. The guiding principle of Obama administration strategy, to try to figure out what Bush would do and then do the opposite all

The words came out of my mouth before I could stop them. “I feel sorry for Obama,” I said. As my wife looked at me in disbelief, I quickly added a correction. “Well, almost.” Beset by failures at home and abroad, the president cuts a lonely and sad figure these days. His aura of grief reflects his profound loss. His worldview crashed headlong into reality, and reality won. Obamaism is dead, may it rest in peace. That’s sad for him, but hold the tears — his loss is mankind’s hope. If Obama wakes from his utopian visions and faces the

Has President Obama´s impunity come to an end? After five years of his flouting the letter and spirit of the law in an increasingly brazen fashion, congressional Republicans have been starting to ramp up their rhetoric about Obama´s lawlessness, their most concerted effort on the issue to date. Several new reports from top Republicans underscore the breadth of Obama´s executive overreach. Viewed comprehensively, it involves laws ranging from healthcare to immigration to privacy to technology to social issues to national security matters and more. Scandals like Benghazi, Operation Fast and Furious, the IRS targeting of conservative groups, NSA spying, CIA

White House executive pastry chef Bill Yosses is resigning after First Lady Michelle Obama fundamentally changed his job duties to focus on healthier food. Yosses is leaving the White House in June to work on a new project focusing on “food literacy” and The New York Times says Michelle is “partly to blame.” The openly gay chef was hired by Laura Bush in 2007 to make his trademark cookie plates and sugar sculptures. Mrs. Obama took over in 2009 and ordered Yosses to make healthier plates in smaller portions. (Snip) “I don’t want to demonize cream, butter, sugar and eggs,”

Health industry officials say ObamaCare-related premiums will double in some parts of the country, countering claims recently made by the administration. The expected rate hikes will be announced in the coming months amid an intense election year, when control of the Senate is up for grabs. The sticker shock would likely bolster the GOP’s prospects in November and hamper ObamaCare insurance enrollment efforts in 2015. The industry complaints come less than a week after Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius sought to downplay concerns about rising premiums in the healthcare sector. She told lawmakers rates would increase in 2015 but

Government officials now admit the data system and transponder quit communicating after the pilots said things were OK. That means they didn’t lie. The official Malaysian account of the last contacts made to and received by Flight MH370 is unraveling. As it does, the sinister interpretations of what happened in the cockpit of the Boeing 777 become less persuasive. We return to the all-important timeline. Originally, the Malaysians said that the last words from the cockpit—from the copilot, “All right, good night”—were spoken to air traffic controllers as the airplane left Malaysian air space at 1:30am. This week, that timing was significantly changed
