In a Politics Daily report by correspondent Christopher Weber the headline says it all. “Andrew Breitbart Fundraiser Rescheduled by RNC.” The article tells how Breitbart is now a hands off property for the Shirley Sherrod fiasco. Ya know, she gives a speech before the NAACP, the NAACP films the event and then someone at the NAACP leaks a portion of the video appearing damning against Sherrod as if she’s a virulent racist. She is not.
The reality is her on video statement was one of redemption and realizing that poor people of all races are the same. It’s a classic story of America. But there’s a rub. See, the first part that made it to the airwaves only showed the part of her story about her feeling racist toward the white farmer. Breitbart has been raked over the coals for his releasing the video because it appears he was selective in editing and releasing the damning part of the video.
The fallout is Breitbart is a Tea Party type and conservative media advocate. The Sherrod firing by the Obama Administration has been portrayed as a “conservative trick” played on the left to embarrass them this election season.
Here’s the truth as far as I have been able to discern. The NAACP filmed the entire event. The NAACP owned and possessed the video since the filming, establishing some level of “chain of custody” of the video tape. Someone at the NAACP leaked part of the video. Why only part? To cause Breitbart to release the part he had and then when it’s revealed the tape is actually much longer the NAACP and Democrats and anti-Tea Party types scream racism – AGAIN – to indict conservative alternate media as actually being racist in motivation. These are the raw facts to my knowledge.
And of course now Breitbart is raked over the coals in media and Democrat circles. And, of course as well, the RNC, the lily-livered pussies, want to distance themselves from Breitbart as leftist defined PC demands. This is wrong on so many levels.
Despite the commonly accepted wisdom, leftists don’t get to define what is and is not acceptable, or PC in today’s nomenclature. To go along and allow the left to define what is and is not acceptable debate is to cede the entire left/right dichotomy to them by default.
As I have posed before, is there a single Republican out here who sincerely believes the left offers “constructive criticisms” to HELP us win elections – ya know, helps Republicans to defeat Democrats? Use your head, idiot! Leftists are not pure in motive in their claims at what is and is not acceptable political debate – don’t be stupid. If one listens to RNC chatter there is way too much concern for the PC the left tries to demand from conservatism. I say to Hell with what the left wants. Politically, is what they want good for the nation? Gee, what do the polls say? Ya know, the thousands of polls since the Obamanation? Those polls? Consistently polls show what the left wants is not what the vast majority of the nation wishes for. To accept leftist premises as to what is acceptable political debate only plays into leftist’s wishes.
As for the idiot and spineless RNC, wow is all I can say. As my best understanding demonstrates, Breitbart was a victim of some player at the NAACP and NOT, I repeat NOT the one who “selectively” edited the video of Sherrod’s speech. But the firestorm seems to try to place as much blame for all of this on conservatism as possible, when so far as the facts indicate, the ones who should wear all the blame for this are whomever leaked the PARTIAL video to Breitbart, as well as the adminsitration for it’s knee-jerk firing of Sherrod.
So, what was the motive of the leaker?
I know to a lefty any possible gulf between the RNC and the Tea Parties is reason for hope. Could that have been the motive? Seems as likely as any according to the demonstrable facts of this incident as thus far revealed. But my real beef is with the RNC. In an effort to not offend anyone, they are trying to distance themselves from the Tea Parties.
Here is my prediction. The RNC will either get on board and stop accepting leftist PC premises, or they will find themselves more and more isolated. And lefties needn’t get a chubb considering all that might portend for their hopeful little radical desires. Conservatives vote Republican, so Republican candidates will be the ones who benefit, but the RNC organization will lose power and sway. If they in any way accept any leftist PC premise, the RNC will find itself more and more superfluous.
The left is not an advocate for successful conservative politics and hopeful ascendancy in any manner. Anyone so moronic as to accept any PC criticisms from the left is, well, a moron. Lefties do not want to see conservatives be politically successful and when the left gets to defining and dictating what conservatives need to do to win elections, ya better wise up and know you are being snowed. So, are you one of them so damned bereft of intelligent political maturity that ya actually believe we need to let the left define what we can and cannot say or do politically? Are you? The left does not want us to win elections, so their advice is worthless and intended to create division. Is this really that complicated a concept so as to flummox anyone? Well, anyone except a RINO? I don’t give a rat’s ass what RINO’s like Lindsey Graham and John McCain think.
Put on your thinking caps RNC. Reject the leftist’s defining what is right or wrong for us to do to win elections and save this nation from progressive usurpation. FOR THE LAST TIME, being Democrat Lite IS NOT how conservatives win elections. It’s done by drawing distinct differences between conservatism and the leftist crappola. When voters are given clear delineation between conservatism and leftism, conservatism wins. Happens every time it’s tried.
