Shirley Sherrod: In this episode, Breitbart was responsible for slandering a USDA employee by calling her a racist. Lately he has been defending himself by saying that he had included the “redemptive arc” of her story revealing her innocence. But let’s not forget how he originally portrayed the situation:

“In her meandering speech to what appears to be an all-black audience, this federally appointed executive bureaucrat lays out in stark detail, that her federal duties are managed through the prism of race and class distinctions.[...] In the first video, Sherrod describes how she racially discriminates against a white farmer.”

That is a pretty clear accusation of discriminatory behavior on the part of a federal employee. It is also a lie. Sherrod did not discriminate against the farmer, as Breitbart later acknowledged, and the story she told was about an incident that occurred 20 years before she held a federal post. Nevertheless, Breitbart’s reaction at the time was another demonstration of his paranoid narcissism, as he whined,“As difficult as it probably was for her, it’s been difficult for me as well .” Poor guy. Sherrod is suing Breitbart.

3) Clinton Plotting a Tea Party Attack: Breitbart published a story with no evidence, about an alleged conspiracy that never came to pass:

“Big Government has learned that Clintonistas are plotting a ‘push/pull’ strategy. They plan to identify 7-8 national figures active in the tea party movement and engage in deep opposition research on them. If possible, they will identify one or two they can perhaps ‘turn’, either with money or threats, to create a mole in the movement. The others will be subjected to a full-on smear campaign.”

Also never coming to pass…a retraction. This story bubbled up through the media like much of Breitbart’s fiction, eventually getting coverage from Fox Nation

Sure, I could go on about how completely lame the source of your "you showed me" information is coming from, but after actually searching your source online, there were so many instances of absolute loony bin, tin foil hat bullsh1t coming from that website, that have been documented and proven as absurd lies, that it would be much easier to just say...

Hey XXX, weather expert trucker. Let me know how you feel about the source of where you are getting those "facts". Ahhhh ha ha ha ha ha!

You keep saying I have nothing to go on. Would UDintBuildThat's calling the President a dumb "half breed" be a racist comment? Shall I post a link?

Piss off old man. The only reason you are still flapping your jowls is because you know I nailed your belief system to a t. You know, the belief system that voting Americans said to stick up your @ss and rotate.

Hey F Tard.... I never called the president a dumb half breed. Maybe I've called him a dumbass monkey with a hand grenade foaming at the mouth a few times.... but never a half breed.
.
I mean WTF???? I would still hate his white half too ya dipshitt.
.
Now everyone on the planet knows he's a dumbass monkey with a hand grenade foaming at the mouth. Isn't it time for Vlad Putin to kick his arse again on a world wide tv news feed?Caesar Obamus should seriously consider wearing the 5 pointed jester hat! It would be very appropriate for the occasion.

IF Udidntbuildthat had said that I would agree with you. pls post the link because it doesn't come to mind. My guess is that you are twisting words again but I'll wait for your link posting.
Next, Why do you have to be so dang insulting? Is it because you can not post objective substance or because you wouldn't see a pimple on your nose while looking in a mirror? Just asking.

Since he is a half breed, the whole arguement hinges on how it is said, as a matter of fact or with denigration. since posting makes makes 'tone' all but impossible, I'll go with 'matter of fact' in case because of the history of your posts.
But I would like to point out that Obama campaigned NOT as an American, nor an African American or even a Black American but simply as a Black man. So you may be correct biologically speaking but as far as his attitude, goals & morals go....you could be wrong!lol

Oh, I mean the comment as denigrating, but not as racial.

In the past, I've also referred to him as a zebra; again, I don't consider that racial either. The term was most popular on the black show The Jeffersons where the black actor that played George referred to his son-in-law as a zebra because the son-in-law was a Mulatto.

So I think that Canton has "You Didn't Build That" and I confused.

No, you don't generally call a PERSON a "half breed" except as part of an insult. And it's an insult that comes from a time when "race-mixing" was so despised that it was a crime in some states. Here's a pretty common example of how "half breed" is typically used, from "Tom Sawyer":

"Say, Huck, I know another o' them voices; it's Injun Joe."
"That's so—that murderin' half–breed! I'd druther they was devils a dern sight."

http://etc.usf.edu/lit2go/34/the-adventures-o...

And remember this 70s song "Half Breed" from Cher?

"My father married a pure Cherokee
My mother's people were ashamed of me
The Indians said that I was white by law
The white man always called me "Indian Squaw"

Half-breed, that's all I ever heard
Half-breed, how I learned to hate the word
Half-breed, "She's no good," they warned.
Both sides were against me since the day I was born"

These days the term is mostly used by closet racists referring to Obama.

Your msg is as clear as a fresh rain. I totally understand & have no problem with it myself. Thanx for the clarification.
Now lets wait for Canton to do his spin. It should be entertaining.

"When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to mean -- neither more nor less."

You say you are not using the word in a racial way? How is that possible? What do you think the word "half breed" means?

half-breed
n. Offensive
A person of mixed racial descent, especially a person of Native American and white parentage.
