NAACP refudiates racists in its ranks…by ignoring them. UPDATE: Shirley Sherrod Resigns

The NAACP is the gift that keeps on giving.  I enjoyed its  referendum on the Tea Party’s alleged racism, which it bases on the Tea Parties consisting of some old white people.  Of course, at the same time, Brietbart releases fun video of some USDA farm bureaucrat telling a NAACP audience how she helps white farmers.  I’ve embedded it below, from Hot Air:

Racism continues to be a hot-button issue due to those who use it to further their own agenda. The idea that the Tea Parties are racist because they consist of a lot of white people is as stupid as arguing the NBA hates white people because it consists almost entirely of black people. Personally, I find all of this nonsense about conservatives being against Obama because he’s black to be an intentional distraction. I mean, I can only speak for myself, but I dislike Algore and John Kerry almost as much as I dislike Barry. I dislike Nancy Pelosi just as much as Barry. And I disliked Ted Kennedy even more than Barry. So, I’m not racist. I just don’t like liberals.

UPDATE:  After the Breitbart video surfaced, the USDA forced Sherrod to resign.

‘There is zero tolerance for discrimination at USDA, and I strongly condemn any act of discrimination against any person,’ Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said in a written statement. ‘We have been working hard through the past 18 months to reverse the checkered civil rights history at the department and take the issue of fairness and equality very seriously.’

No word on whether NAACP gives a damn.

    If you use the word “refudiate”, it will become real…. just like the Tooth Fairy.

    “Refudiate”. How awesomely cutting edge of you. I hadn’t heard about that one. (Go Sarah!) Maybe Obama could get himself wee-wee’d up and refudiate some of the remarks he made to the “corpse”-men. Shortly after he finishes visiting the 57th state. Which, in his case, seems to be the state of perpetual partying.

    Wait! What? What about the tooth fairy? What are you insinuating?

    Mary, just because someone with some perceived clout tells you something doesn’t make it real (unless you’re Glenn Beck, in which case he makes up most everything and a lot of people think it’s real).

    True, but let’s go to the video. Nothing like being able to hear and see what people say and do to accept that they might have actually said and done it.

    And I’m fairly certain Shirley Sherrod is somewhat grateful that not everyone is quite so dismissive of Glenn Beck.

    Mary, you’ve been duped! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OmOwafnVGug

    Stop following what other idiots tell you and THINK FOR YOURSELF!

    One more time: it’s not about Sherrod…it was never about Sherrod. It was always about the NAACP’s reaction to Sherrod. The tape was posted in response to the NAACP’s stupid vote about the tea parties. The NAACP’s response wasn’t edited or manufactured. It continues to amaze how easily people miss the point.

    Really? I’m duped? Did you look at CINN’s cast of characters spoon-feeding you the pablum?

    Here are the facts (which even Howard Dean, try as he might, couldn’t weasel out of). Fox News had not mentioned her name on one broadcast until AFTER the White House demanded her resignation. Their fear of her showing up on Glenn Beck was just that: Their fear. In point of fact, Beck didn’t mention her, that evening, nor did anyone else until AFTER she resigned.

    I haven’t any idea (and neither do you, prejudices aside) whether Breitbart edited that tape or received it already edited. What we do know (prejudices aside) is that the NAACP had the tape, in its entirety, and still joined the White House in the demand for her resignation.

    It was a giant screw-up, all around and Beck is about the only player who withheld judgment.

    I can’t believe I’m defending Beck, somone I never listen to, but here you go:

    Battle of the video clips.

    I know, I know, how did I know Beck defended her if I don’t listen to him. Turns out CNN was sufficiently surprised at the defense that they actually mentioned it.

    WNN. You are right. I did let a red herring distract. Sometimes the ridiculous, baseless charges are just a bit much to brush off as the lunacy they are.
