Ronald Radosh called for Andrew Breitbart to apologize for his role in the firing of USDA official Shirley Sherrod.

Breitbart is partially correct. The NAACP has shown its irrelevance many times, trying to act as if the U.S. is still in the segregated 40s and 50s, when it was a necessary and major civil rights organization with a mission to complete. It has a stake in charging racism where it no longer exists. But the organization’s head acknowledged he was disturbed about the audience reaction when Sherrod was accounting her first response of not wanting to help a white farmer, and pledged to look into it. Breitbart is also right that the group snookered itself, and it was not his fault. But this is not an excuse for his own failures. He  too must apologize for putting out a video without checking whether or not it was complete, and considering what it might do to Sherrod.

    I must admit I am starting to accept the fact that not all members of the GOP are gay bashing, race-baiting, anti-science lunatics.

    It will still be a cold day in Hades and I’d sooner drink a box of thumb tacks before I’d ever vote for a Republican, but at least some of them are decent human beings.

    I am guessing Hell will be a frozen popsicle before he apologizes.

    C’mon, Terry. Didn’t you see that he was sorry for what the media did to her? Isn’t he such a nice boy.

    not this garbage about audience reaction again. She laid out before hand when she was young and stupid she did young and stupid things, and when she recounted it, people laughed at that stupidity.
    This reaction, shaking your head no while laughing has been around pretty much forever.

    In the new shock jock form of conservatism, morality is a weakness and Radosh will be stoned for displaying it. Welcome to the brand new world of thug conservatism.
