    I care ****all about "going after" anyone. The simple fact that you quite clearly choose to gloss over, is that without Breitbarf or Fox Noise, there would have been NO STORY or "firing." Period. Had either of those worthless excuses done the due diligence that a credible news organization does BEFORE trying to destroy a decent persons career with a FALSELY constructed hit piece, it would have ended there. Nothing you can say or that followed makes what these racebaiting scumbags did, "ok." Period. That NEITHER of the perpetrators of this viscous personal attack on decent American, has taken responsibility for, or apologized for their clear wronging of this loyal American Public Servant, proves without a doubt that neither of these wastes of oxygen have even a facade of honor.

    If you didn't notice that the video was edited, I have a bridge to sell you.

    But even if it were authentic and not taken out of context (which seems to be the norm these days), as a white person, I don't find what he allegedly said to be without some merit.

    I just read the transcript.... seems race is a big part of this families identity.


    (don't really care much, happened upon it, thought I'd share)


    But it's funny, and no I'm not saying you, but for the past few months, I as a tea partier have been called a racist, pretty much daily around here... There is far more evidence that the racism is the sherrod's, those black panthers in filthy, and even Obama himself than there is in the tea party.......


    Just sayin.

    really so black people should vote only for black people?

    Fine, if you want to jump to that conclusion go right ahead. But if you wan to play the "guilty by association" card, you're no different than those who claim the Tea Party is racist. Amazing that you can't see that.

    That is what you choose to see. It doesn't mean you are right.

    But unlike yourself, as much as I think they are misguided, I am not going to judge the Tea Party on a few rogue racists.

    Personally, I don't think that is right. But I can understand to a degree why many would.

    "seems"


    I am making an observation, I am open to additional evidence and reserve judgment.

    Isn't x people ONLY voting for x people as a matter of means a very definition of racism?

    If you'd read my earlier post you'd see that I agree that because of Freedom of the Press, there isn't much of a case against Fox.

    My point, which you missed or ignored, is that to claim that Fox wasn't responsible because it was the online version instead of the TV version is the loophole. That's an amazing spin that no one should take seriously.

    Now, do you wish to address that point or would you like to try another escape?

    I'm sorry I questioned your God. Please understand that some of us think that they are not infallible.

    My only point, which you ignored, is that to say "No, it wasn't Fox, it was Fox.com" is ridiculous. The culpability of either was not a point I was making.

    You have done your job, and I am sure your God will be pleased with your unquestioning support.
