**UPDATED** Somebody LIED and it’s not Mrs. Shirley Sherrod!!!!
[UPDATED 9.21.10] On September 19, 2010 Mrs. Shirley Sherrod was the featured speaker at the historic Metropolitan A.M.E. church in Washington, D.C. Here is a link to hear message.
****LATEST UPDATE AS OF 7/29 MRS. SHERROD HAD INDICATED SHE WILL IN FACT SUE ANDREW BREITBART FOR SLANDER, MISREPRESENTATION AND OTHER CHARGES REGARDING HIM TARGETING HER FOR THE VIDEO HE DID ON BEHALF OF FOX. SURPRISINGLY HE IS STILL IN DENIAL AND I GUESS YOU WOULD BE TOO, RATHER THAN ADMIT YOU DIRECTLY TARGETED SOMEONE.
Wherever you see a Smoking Gun, you can be assured a “lie” is not too far behind!!!
Remember the Gates / Crowley incident last year???? Some are still in denial, but most smart and alert folks are wandering how long Officer Crowley will get away with filing a false police report???? Do you realize how many people are locked up because the report or information of the incident was incorrect………..or made to fit the crime???? Anyway, we’ll deal with this later.
Back to the Smoking Gun. Most of us have seen situations or perhaps have been in a predicament ourselves. So this notion of “pull over and send in your resignation right now…….because we got orders from the White House for you to do so” is not smelling too good. We understand, perhaps to add the extra emphasis the White House was used as to infer what???????? or was it mentioned to add intimidation or add credibility to Cheryl Cook completing her mission of obtaining Mrs. Shirley Sherrod’s resignation????
As the 44th President of the United States of America, academically President Obama is in the top tier of those who have led our country. His story has been communicated since he published his books. The fact his mother is White and his father is of African descent makes him a true African-American. He has mentioned it was during his teens, after being raised by his lovely grandparents who were White that he needed to fully understand the lifestyle of Blacks in America. Thus after coming to Eagle Rock (just outside downtown Los Angeles) and attending Occidental College, he headed to New York and eventually wound up in Chicago. Noted New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd penned a column that many feel is right on point. As intellectually gifted President Obama is, his handlers are simply botching issue after issue on racial issues and unless he shakes this trend, the facts remain those close to him simply do not have an appreciation in dealing with racial matters. And facts be told, if left alone we are sure President Obama could represent himself very well and in doing so could lead our nation towards reconciliation and healing.
Anyway, the facts are not adding up and based on the documentation we have received thus far, we feel Mrs. Shirley Sherrod’s version of what happened regarding her resignation is the most credible. Why the White House or any staff member regardless of agency, is so intimidated of Fox News or Glenn Beck is beyond me. The truth is the truth and regardless of the bullying that we all know exists, you simply can’t beat it as far as reacting to whatever the issue is.
Mrs. Sherrod did an exclusive interview on “Making it Plain” – XM 167, hosted by Mark Thompson (Matsimela Mapfumo) this afternoon at approximately 4:00pm PST. He did an outstanding and professional job in allowing Mrs. Sherrod to communicate to his audience of 10,000,000+ across the globe. We all have heard the version presented…….pull over…….type your resignation in the blackberry now……..get yourself a cab as we’ve got someone coming for the government vehicle you are drivng………on and on. Here’s what appears to be the facts. Mrs. Sherrod pleaded with Cheryl Cook that her version of the story was incorrect but the fear of the media or whatever, persuaded her to mention, “she must do this immediately as the White House is awaiting confirmation she in fact has officially resigned……..whew.”
Secretary Vilsak was supposedly out of town during the conversation of the firing. In speaking with President Obama during their chat, Mrs. Sherrod is convinced from his comments, while he was briefed, the command did not come from the White House……or did it????? We all can appreciate, Secretary Vilsak took one for the team by stating….”it was my decision” but that simply doesn’t jive. Surely you might conclude as head of the agency and even his undersecretary, with the slightest degree of understanding the civil rights movement surely would know about Mr. Charles Sherrod, Shirley’s husband, as it was he and Congressman John Lewis and others serving as the Field Secretary of the famous civil rights organization SNCC (Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee), which worked hand in hand with Dr. King and the various organizations utilized to transform our nation.
The bottom line is someone is lying and it is not Mrs. Shirley Sherrod. Also, we applaud her for not taking the first job smoking as the USDA is ripe it’s mistreatment and the last thing any person would want to do is to prematurely accept “an opportunity” which leaves her dying on the vine, unproductive or being the blame for all the ills the agency has to deal with.
WE NEED YOUR HELP REGARDING THE BLACK FARMERS RECEIVING THEIR SETTLEMENT CHECKS – THE SENATE IS PLAYING PARTISAN POLITICS AND REGARDLESS OF YOUR AFFILIATION WE URGE YOU TO CONTACT YOUR SENATOR AS WELL AS SENATE MINORITY LEADER MITCH MC CONNELL, AS THIS MARKS THE 4TH TIME THEY HAVE STRIPPED FUNDING, WHICH WAS LEGALLY WON IN A LAWSUIT, HOWEVER THE FULL CONGRESS MUST APPROVE RELEASING THE MONEY AND AS A CITIZEN OF THE UNITED STATES THE BEHAVIOR WE HAVE SEEN IS DEPLORABLE.
