The release of a taped speech given by M’s Shirley Sherrod, in which she relayed a situation, involving herself and a white farmer, she was harassed into resigning under accusations of racism. Words spoken in the first portion of the released tape, presented her as a “Black Female Bigoted” government official.
In her own words she relayed a story of not presenting her best efforts to help a tax paying American citizen in danger of losing his family farm. Rather than giving her best effort, he was referred to “his own kind”. The phrasing and action in itself was a deliberate act of bigotry. But, that is not the real problem.
In a later portion of the tape, M’s Sherrod stated she learned the mistake of prejudice within herself through how she dealt with the matter. The event with the farmer occurred 24 years prior to her speech at the NAACP.
M’s Sherrod’s mistake was made in the second portion of the released tape. She identified the true course of action being taken by the current administration. Revealing Progressives true agenda to maintain a division between the “haves and have – not’s”, is likely to have been her mistake.
Three intense telephone calls came from Washington, the White House according to M’s Sherrod, demanding she resign immediately. Under pressure, she did as ordered and resigned.
Was she thrown in front of the political train to draw attention away from other action occurring in D.C.? Was she targeted earlier for destruction, when a diversion became necessary? Was she in the Progressive Democrat camp? If so, did she expect to be used as a scapegoat at the cost of her job?
All these are questions fitting for the Obama administration. With the loss of millions of jobs, in the past 18 months and a national debt over 13 trillion dollars, Democrats can’t afford to clear view of their political activities and agenda.
It appears M’s Shirley Sherrod could have been stabbed in the back by the Democrat Party, the NAACP, and the Obama administration. It matters not her political affiliation, but if she was a Democrat on July 19th, will she be July 20th. And, how many more will find themselves on the same tracks facing a speeding political train?
