As almost everyone knows by now Shirley Sherrod was forced to resign yesterday after a right-wing blogger edited a speech she gave to the NAACP back
in march. The White House telling her to resign because she will be on Glenn Beck! The NAACP came out in condemnation of her and Tom
Vilsack(Agriculture Department leader) publicly condemned her.
It was created by a lunatic right-wing blogger and mass distributed on virtually all news sites, especially propagated by FOX News. Not a single
journalist or government official or NAACP leader took the time to actually watch her full speech which would have immediately proven that edited
video to be the exact opposite of what she was actually saying.
She told a remarkable story, a story that should fill all Americans with pride and hope yet we were suckered into believing she ripped off a poor
white farmer because she was a racist. A huge falsification propagated by the right-wing media.
Now to Obama and his team, they screwed up the life of this great woman because they were afraid of Glenn Beck! They were afraid of it airing on Glenn
Beck program! Are you #ing kidding!? This guy is paranoid of things airing on Glenn Beck!?
Then we must turn our anger to the media, how dare they air this load of bull#! CNN, MSNBC, Blogs, etc... All aired this crap without looking into it.
Professional journalism? Professional journalism? Where is that???
Now to the a separate portion of this thread.
FOX News is the biggest lying machine in the United States. These right-wing media outlets and blogs are read and watched by millions of people, they
call themselves journalists when they are far from it! They are nothing but a huge propaganda machine! They spew huge propaganda for the right, they
tell people they aren't racist it's actually reverse racism, they have control over the white house because Obama and his staff are afraid of what
Glenn Beck says!
Now we have this lunatic going to the Lincoln Memorial on MLK's birthday saying him and the Tea Party are the torch bearers of the Civil Rights
Movement and they are not the racists, Obama and the Liberals are!
Glenn Beck is a huge racist, a massive white supremecist! Mormonism, which Glenn Beck is, was consider a racist organization until the 1960's because
they openly said blacks were inferior, it's a core part of their religion!
The Tea Party is a massive Right-wing racist organization that proclaims they are the true Americans, they represent average America. Yet they are
overwhelmingly white, racist and ultra-conservative. They now have their own Caucus within the House of Representatives where they can further install
their racist, ultra-conservative and corporatist policies that have for decades brought America to its knees!
This is a war! This is not a bloody war, this is an ideological war. A war over the future of America where on one-side we have the people who would
like America to move forward and educate themselves, on the other-side we have the people who would like America to move backwards and install racism,
sexism and hatred through indoctrination.
This is a war that we cannot lose, it is a war against right-wing bloggers like
Dan Gainor, Right-Wing Media Critic, Offers Cash For Assault On
. So Alan Grayson promises to punch back. PUNCH BACK GRAYSON, PUNCH BACK!!!!!
This is what we are dealing with here, people who are either so stupid they spread their own ignorance or people who are willing to terrify Americans
so they listen to them. That is what is happening on right-wing blogs, that is what is happening on AM Radio, that is what is happening on FOX News,
and that is what is happening on Above Top Secret.
So many people here claim to be above the ignorance, hell they even say to deny and denounce it. I am not saying I am the most enlightened person or
that I am not ignorant to some things because that would be a lie. But people who attack others for not agreeing with them and then say, "I don't
watch Fox, Glenn Beck or other right-wingers." Either they are lying or they are spreading their own ignorance.
It is one thing to talk politics and have debates, support your own positions no matter what they are. It is another to spread ignorance and attack
militantly against anyone who does not support your right-wing agenda.
THIS IS A WAR!!!
