Should Shirley sue Andy? Smearing the TEA movement pt 3

I have been reading with interest the tale of the bigotry of Shirley Sherrod.  Andrew Breitbart was sent a video clip showing an Obummer appointee, Shirley Sherrod speaking at an NAACP event. In the clip Sherrod mentioned her own attitude to “whitey” and how she had refused to help a white farmer, then thought better of her actions. It sounds like a redemption story. Yet there are some stings in this story that do in fact highlight Sherrod the Marxist continues with her bigotry against Whites even though she claims a different ending to the story.

Why did Andrew Breitbart release the tape? Was it to point the finger at Shirley Sherrod? Or was it to show how the NAACP were in fact the bigots when they sat and cheered as Shirley Sherrod related her story of treating a white farmer in a bigoted fashion? First of all, I think that the latter is the case, and that Sherrod was not the highlight of Breitbart’s story, although certainly many people who viewed the clip certainly thought that she remained a bigot. Now why was that? I will get to that in a moment. Second, Andrew Breitbart is not responsible for the reactions that came from the NAACP or from Sherrod’s boss in the White House. No one should have forced Sherrod to resign.  They reacted stupidly… and yes that goes all the way up the chain.

Now the thing is when the clip is viewed in context Sherrod made statements that proved she is a liar with regard to her redemption story. For starters she went on a Bush rant… it seems Shirley has a really severe case of Bush Derangement Syndrome, a disease that is rampant amongst members of the current White House Regime. In fact BDS is so bad and viral amongst the members of the Regime that I believe that they all need a permanent rest from their jobs.  Then Sherrod made statements regarding the TEA movement that were nothing more than a smear – a blatant lie. In this case Sherrod made untrue statements about the opposition to the health legislation that I term Abominablecare. Sherrod, like all of the other Marxist members of the White House regime persists with the lie that the protests were about skin colour, when in fact that was never the case.

Immediately after the release of the tape, Shirley’s boss forced her to resign. Was that Andrew Breitbart’s fault? I do not think so. She was forced to resign because the White House regime over-reacted. From here the story gets very murky. Sherrod then turned around and started blaming FOX news for her forced resignation, as well as blaming Andrew Breitbart. Yet, it seems that Sherrod does not blame herself for her own bigotry and racism.

It is statements like: “He spoke to me in a way that showed he thought himself superior” (or words to that effect) that in fact show that Sherrod was in fact being racist towards the white farmer. It shows that she had not changed. Yet the story that Sherrod told ended with her statement about how she realized that the way forward was to help the poor against those bad rich dudes…. sounds like class warfare, eh Shirley?

Since Sherrod did not shut up, and since she has been running around stating that she should sue Andrew Breitbart, it might be interesting to look at Sherrod’s background with litigation, and oh boy, what a background!!  Shirley Sherrod and her husband started up a co-operative type farming community. She and her husband purchased the land, and yes eventually they were unable to pay back the loans and yes they lost the farm. Sherrod and her husband were involved in what is known as the Pigford case. They sued independently from the class action and won more than $13 million plus $300,00 for “pain and suffering”. It seems Shirley has enriched herself on the taxpayer dime. So it seems that our Shirley the bigot, sued the government and won her case, and then she was offered a job by the Regime.

If it had not been for Shirley Sherrod shooting herself in the foot by continuing to shoot off her bigoted mouth, I would have felt sorry for the woman because of the way she was forced to resign, but the more I find out about this bigot, the less that I feel any form of empathy with her, especially when she has so deliberately maligned others, and has even gone as far as demanding that Andrew Breitbart’s sites are closed down….

Sorry Shirley, old girl, but that kind of demand infringes on the free speech rights of others. I guess since you Shirley happen to be a Marxist, you do not believe that others have a right to that free speech.

Smearing the TEA movement pt 2

Whilst this particular story does not involve the TEA movment, it does involve the modis operandi of the left when it comes to smearing people who do not agree with their point of view. This is a second case where there has been a death, involving either murder or suicide. The first case brought to my attention involved a man in Kentucky who had worked as a part-time census worker. This case is set in Monroe County Tennessee.

Jim Miller was a Republican and his body was found in the back of a burning car. The smear involves two men, Darren Huff and Walter Fitzpatrick who are apparently involved in RAP.  Fitzpatrick and Huff have recently been arrested and arraigned in relation to their attempt to do a citizen’s arrest of the foreman of the Grand Jury.  It is not in the slightest bit clear why they would have been involved in the death of Mr. Miller, but it seems two Progressives (Marxists) by the name of Eugene and Jean Gibson have been amongst the first to attempt to smear Fitzpatrick and Huff for this particular murder. On top of that they have also attempted to smear another man by the name of Leo H, also from Tennessee, but who lives nowhere near the murder victim.

The last time that the left attempted to do the smear like this, it was in Kentucky where a man was found on the ground after hanging himself. In that case the left got really busy and attempted to smear not just the TEA movement but also Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity. The way that this smear works is that the perpetrators were supposed to have been those who listen to Rush, Glenn and Sean, and therefore these three have blood on their hands…. well it seems even after it was determined that the man did in fact commit suicide, the left have learned nothing because they are at it once again with their smears.

The left did the same thing over the cop-killer Kane family. The left wing bloggers at Huffington post and elsewhere attempted to make the connection between the Kanes and listening to Rush Limbaugh without one shred of evidence that Jerry Kane ever listened to Limbaugh on the radio. It was just the journolist writers doing what they were told – smear Rush at every opportunity.  Once they try to tie in Rush, they usually turn their attention to the TEA movement, making up stories about those who have attended such protests, treating them as racists etc.  These bloggers will just make it up so that they can try to get their point across to their gullible readers.

Just like the Kentucky case though, there is more to the story than meets the eye. So far there does not seem to be any evidence that either Fitzpatrick or Huff had anything to do with the death of Jim Miller. On the other hand, what has come to light is that a Deputy Police Officer has been stood down from his job pending the investigation of the death of Jim Miller.

My point in bringing up the story is that the left wing Bobots did not waste time attempting to smear some people who are if anything, very misguided in what they are doing. By trying to pin the murder on these people, these same Obots are also attempting, by the use of guilt association to smear members of the TEA movement, even though the TEA movement has nothing to do with the death of Jim Miller, let alone having anything to do with the lunacy of the Restore America Plan.

Smearing the TEA movement Part 1

The TEA movement is a movement of American citizens who are concerned about government taking over their lives. The acronym TEA stands for Taxed Enough Already. These folks are not anti-government, but they are against big government, and that includes government owning car manufacturers, plus taking over government health insurance as well as hospitals etc. In future posts I hope to look more closely at the concerns of these people and the manner in which the Obama regime and their cohorts have been smearing the TEA movement. This hopefully will include looking at the racist NAACP resolution that has smeared the TEA movement as racist (rather hypocritical of the NAACP in my opinion). The main thrust of this post, however, is to examine the case of the death of father and son cop-killers Jerry and Joseph Kane.

There is in the USA a movement known as “We the People” and there are “Patriots”. Most conservative Americans (Republican and Democrat) identify themselves as Patriots. In some circles, though “patriot” has a different meaning. It is also how the left has attempted to smear the TEA movement as being part and parcel of an extreme group known as Sovereign Citizens, who are involved amongst other things in the Restore America Plan (R.A.P.)  The deaths of Jerry and Joseph Kane were seen as another opportunity of the left to smear people such as Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and other conservative voices,  as well as smearing Ron Paul, Rand Paul and the Libertarian movement, as well as the TEA movement.

I first read about the Kanes when the incident occurred, but in my view, I dismissed the whole event as that of cop killers getting what they deserved. In recent days, during my reading of a blog known as Citizen Wells, a commenter started posting claims that the Kanes were “murdered” or “assassinated”, which is pretty strong language, and also incorrect because only a leader of a country such as the President of France, or the Queen of England can be assassinated. However, this reader was producing “facts” based on misinformation and doctored video tapes. The disinformation regarding the incident is rather interesting. When I spoke up stating the obvious that the Kanes were cop killers the person went into a melt down, calling me a “liar” and a “big fat liar” because I pointed to the media stories about the case, including a video clip that came from the police car that actually showed the boy, Joseph Kane using the AK-47 and killing the two policemen. Needless to say, I am not backing down on my statement that Jerry and Joseph Kane were cop killers.

A search on Google and Bing search engines will bring up posts from Huffington Post, as well as other leftist sites which smeared the TEA movement claiming that the Kanes were associated with the movement. However, the writers that did this type of smearing have no proof for their contentions. From what I have been reading about the Kanes I believe that they fit best as both anarchists and leftist, rather than right wing. This also goes for the Southern Poverty Law Centre who had been following the Kanes and had tagged them as extreme right wing… thus the SPLC has also attempted to smear the TEA movement for the same reason.  Apparently the Kanes were not on the SPLC database, yet Mark Potok was still willing to smear the Patriot movement and the TEA movement.

What then are the facts that can be gleaned about the shootout? This link gives some graphic detail about the shooting murder of two police officers. The video on the side of the screen is from the dashboard of the police officer’s vehicle. As to the criticism that no shots are heard, I will state that the video is inside of the vehicle and that none of the conversation between the police officers and Jerry Kane was recorded. What I could tell from the video, is that the police stopped the car for an unknown reason. The police officer requested papers from Kane, and I assume that these were the car registration papers. There was obviously some kind of conversation going on. It is not clear that Kane threatened the officer, but what is clear is that Kane also said something to his son at one point.

A witness to the shooting stated that Jerry Kane pushed the police officer into the ditch. At this point Joseph Kane got out of the vehicle with the AK-47 and he began shooting. You can actually see him using the gun in the video as he got out of the car. However, the actual shooting of the police officer is not recorded. Joseph Kane did leave the car and move towards the ditch. He then returns to the car and waits for his father, who has grabbed the registration papers. As Jerry Kane takes off, Joseph Kane raises the AK-47 and leans out of the window, (this is seen on the video footage). He then fires the AK-47 at Evans, the other police officer who is also killed. Yes, you can see the movement of the AK-47 as Joseph Kane is firing. I have no doubt in my mind that the Kanes murdered the two police officers. There were no other parties involved at the scene of the first shoot-out. The second shoot-out occurred at the Walmart car-park. It ended with the wounding of two more police officers and the deaths of the Kanes.

A background check on Jerry Kane reveals that his last arrest was in New Mexico on April 10 where he was released on bail. Jerry Kane lived most of his life in Ohio, and the van which he was driving was registered to a New Vienna organization called House of God’s prayer. Joseph Kane never attended school and was home-schooled by his father (this gives home-schoolers a bad name).  The address used for the registration of the vehicle is one that is associated with a neo-Nazi cop-killer by the name or Ray Redfeairn. The group that met at the address were also associated with the KKK. (hmmm…. now that is hardly a right wing organization with its links to the DNC!!).  Jerry Kane traveled around the USA giving mortgage seminars called “Redemption” of mortgages.  There are sites that go into a bit of detail about these “mortgage” seminars. All I can say is that it looks like what he was teaching was based upon a scam. I do not want to link onto some of the sites and give them traffic since what they write is in my view slanderous towards a number of people, including Ron and Ran Paul, whom I do not support.

The sovereign citizens have little in common with the people involved with the TEA movement. In fact I would not call them right wing, but I would call them left wing. My dealings with people who promote RAP tells me that this movement is leftist, yet it is to the right of the Communists. They are also anti-Semitic which was brought out after the flotilla incident when the IDF soldiers were beaten by HRH terrorists on board that one Turkey registered boat. The anti-Semitic comments were appalling indicating that these people were either followers of LaRouche or followers of Ron Paul (Ron Paul is anti-Semitic).  This anti-Semitism is not in line with the regular TEA movement people.

As I learn more about the sovereign citizens I will write another post so that my readers become more aware of the existence of this particular extreme group. I will also attempt to write about the Restore America Plan as I find information that is not tainted by the extreme leftist bias of sites like Huffington Post and the Southern Poverty Law Centre. To date my exposure to RAP has come from some of the adherents who have been posting on some of the blogs that I read. My gut feel with regard to them and to what they seem to espouse is alarm. It seems that their leaders claim that they found a copy of the Constitution that has a different 14th Amendment, and therefore they disregard the real 14th amendment. What alarms me though, is that they seem to advocate the overthrow of government to replace it with a system to their liking. I cannot see any difference between their goals and those of the Progressive movement (the communists). Whilst some of their members might attend TEA movement demonstrations, there is still no evidence that RAP and sovereign citizens are a real part of the TEA movement.

In fact to the contrary, the leaders of the TEA movement are against big government, they are not against government. Being against big government simply means that government should stay out of health insurance and matters pertaining to personal health. It also means that government should not be spending money on “stimulus” programs and government should not be expanding the public sector. That in essence is a far cry from the things advocated by Jerry and Joseph Kane, as well as what is advocated by members of RAP and also those who see themselves as sovererign citizens.
