Contrast this bullshit from Fox News, including Hannity and Gingrich with the story from the actual folks down in Georgia.
But Spooner, who considers Sherrod a "friend for life," said the federal official worked tirelessly to help the Iron City couple hold onto their land as they faced bankruptcy back in 1986.
Apparently, you have to actually watch the video clip entirely and talk to the people involved to find out that Sherrod was telling the story as a lesson on growing beyond racism. The craziest part? She ended up saving the white man's farm.
Thank goodness more people are picking up on this. Shame on the Obama administration for getting rid of this official without all the facts being known. Shame on the NAACP for trying to appear "balanced" to make up for their ludicrous Tea Party nonsense last week. And shame on the knee-jerk, spintastic journalism of Fox News and right-wing radio and blogs.
Apparently, the "Obama hires racist black people" meme is more important than actually saving family farms.
