    How many here would be standing up and defending a child molester who got out of prison and said he had learned from his mistakes? You would still consider him a child molester, a demon, a monster, even 50 years after his crime. Why is this lady suddenly not racist because she "learned" from when she WAS admittedly discriminating against white people? If once a convict, always a convict, then once a racist, always a racist.

    She was racist, she has been caught on video admitting to her racism, and time, nor "learning from mistakes" will ever change that.

    Burn in hell you racist bitch. Don't worry, be racist.
    I believe people can change and I was willing to give her the benefit of the doubt. However, the more I learned about her, the less I liked her. I think she is corrupt along with those involved in Pigford.

Invariably the message is I was a sinner, and now I stand before you humbled and not a saint. the expectation is that people going through similar experiences can be motivated to change. how is that anything but a positive? How did the Breitbarts video get perceived as anything but that (unless people only watched the parts they wanted to watch...in which case the sin is on them).
    Vance, I think that the other dealings are very important to the OP. I feel that she never would have been forced to resign like she was if it wasn't for the "other dealings". They wanted her gone as quickly as possible before people got nosy and started checking into her background with the USDA.
    Now they want to place all blame on Brietbart. At first it was Brietbart and FOX, until it was proven FOX never ran the story until the complete video was available. ( well ok, O'Reilly did a clip in his talking points) but truth be told the WH/USDA are the ones who caused all the fuss. Otherwise, once the facts came out with the whole tape, it all would have gone away with some apologies. Instead, here was a woman who had lost her job over it.

    Thats fine...and I get that it all adds into it...but I swear...reading this thread is like taking a trip through Crazytown. I keep hearing all the talk about 'editing' or not showing the whole clip and its horse****. I REALIZE of course that some people have a kneejerk bias towards Andrew Breitbart...and I dont really care about that one way or the other. But that clip that was INITIALLY SHOWN...not the whole 45 minutes but the initial 4 minute clip showed both her admission of bias, and her expression of regret and growth. We saw it here...we talked about it here.

    So that leads me to believe this one thing...everyone believes about this situation what they want to believe without regard to what is or isnt true. Thats pretty sad.

    Truth therefore, is subjective.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Maybe Sherrod isn't a racist but she sleeps with one.
    By the way, I bumped up an old thread on this subject.

    Sorry dummy, the first amendment doesn't cover libel and slander.
    This isn't news because you didn't include a quote of the alleged slander...which is kinda a critical detail to conveniently forget to include.
