USDA Official Featured In Previous Post Fired and Ignored by Media

On Monday, Andrew Breitbart, on his blog Big Government, revealed video of a Department of Agriculture official making racially charged comments at an NAACP meeting in March. While the media were quick to jump on the civil rights organization accusing the tea party of racism last week, they have failed to provide any coverage of this controversy.

The comments were made by the USDA's Georgia Director of Rural Development Shirley Sherrod at a NAACP Freedom Fund dinner in Georgia on March 27 (see post below). As the video clearly shows, Sherrod's description of discriminating against white farmers was well received by the audience. The comments, which were reported throughout the day Monday on Fox News, stirred so much controversy that Sherrod resigned Monday night and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack was forced to issue a statement on the matter: "“There is zero tolerance for discrimination at USDA, and I strongly condemn any act of discrimination against any person.”

As NewsBusters' Noel Sheppard earlier reported, none of the network evening news broadcasts touched the story on Monday . On Tuesday, the CBS Early Show, NBC's Today, and ABC's Good Morning America were all silent on the controversy and resignation. However, all three morning shows did manage to focus on a recent verbal gaffe made by Sarah Palin.

NAACP Bigotry In Their Ranks

While the "civil rights" leadership and Mainstream Media continue to denounce Tea Partiers as racists and bigots, no evidence is ever produced to prove their point.  This was most noticable when the Left tried going after those who publicly opposed the passage of ObamaCare earlier this year.  Member after member reported that they were spit upon and cursed enroute to the final vote, yet no one as ever produced one trace of evidence in audio or video form.  Every major television network was there plus everyone with their cell phones, BlackBerries, and iPhones, which could have captured all the hatred spewed toward African American members of the House and Senate. 

Take a look at the video below of obvious racism and see how much television coverage this incident will receive -- hypocracy at the highest level!  Someday all Americans, regardless of race, are going to say, "enough is enough!" and stop supporting and giving in to advocacy groups like the NAACP, which spends more time, money, and energy supressing the black community and inciting racial tensions than doing good.
