So here’s the deal. Andrew Breitbart’s web site shows a video of a black woman saying she discriminated against a white guy. Not wanting to look like a reverse bigot, the NAACP condemns her. The government fires her. Conservatives go ape-sh*t crazy.
Turns out the video was edited to hide context. The woman was talking about what she learned from her attitude SOME 25 YEARS AGO! NAACP claims it was “snookered”. Any organization that believes anything Breitbart says, needs to be retired. Strike two for Ben Jealous in as many weeks.
To top it off, the “victims” of her bigotry have come to her defense. She saved their farm.
What will happen to Andrew Breitbart for being a lying scumbag? Not a damn thing. The days of libel and slander are over my friends. Print any lie you like. Hell, run an entire campaign based on lies. No consequences.
There was a time when the old fable “The Boy Who Cried Wolf” meant something. Trust was valued. Now the only rule to live by is trust no one.
Every great empire eventually falls. It won’t be liberal or conservative politics that brings down our great country. It will be this new standard of lying without penalty.
