Sherrod Turns Pawn in All-Jewish Race

Candidate Pollak won’t dissociate from Breitbart

Print Email
Shirley Sherrod last March.(Wikipedia)

Last week, conservative impresario Andrew Breitbart’s BigGovernment.com posted video of a black U.S. Department of Agriculture bureaucrat telling an NAACP gathering that she didn’t fully help a white farmer. This prompted Ag to fire her, which prompted revelations that her remarks were deliberately taken out of context, which prompted offers to rehire her and an apology from President Obama. Now, the Shirley Sherrod affair has entered this week’s news cycle in a heated U.S. Congressional race featuring two Jewish candidates.

Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Illinois), running for re-election, called on her opponent, Joel Pollak, to stop writing blogposts for Breitbart’s site. Yesterday, Pollak’s spokesperson announced that the Republican candidate will not accede to that demand. “Andrew used intemperate language in his debate with the NAACP, which was wrong,” Pollak said in a statement. “It was even more wrong for the White House and the NAACP to punish a woman for alleged racism without conducting a full and fair investigation.”

Pollak is the first Republican whom influential Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz has ever endorsed, which to an extent has embodied how some American Jewish voters may be willing to compromise their generally Democratic politics over the Israel issue. Pollak is about as attractive as a Republican could be to a Jewish Democrat: He is Jewish and strongly pro-Israel, and believes abortion and gay marriage are issues best left to the states. At the same time, in this case he is declaring himself on the side of a debate associated with the Republican Party’s activist right wing, including the Tea Partiers. Will that turn off Jewish Democrats who may have been willing to look the other way when it came to, say, Pollak’s opposition to Obama’s health-care reform? It is barely three months till we find out.

“revelations that her remarks were deliberately taken out of context”

On the contrary. There have been accusations that her remarks were taken out of context, but if you watch the full video, it’s clear that they were not. Sherrod simply transferred her original racism into classism. Instead of blaming *all* white people for all her woes, she now blames only the wealthy. Who she sees as white. The fact that she’s now (maybe) willing to make an exception to her racism for poor whites doesn’t make her any less of a racist.

Ruth Gutmann says:

Even if Breitbart had not previously played hard and fast with the truth, such as the Acorn story, this attempt by him to smear Ms. Sherrod would be enough to assign him to those who will do their best to injure those they disagrees with.

That helps no one, least of all Israel. As for Derschowitz, he deserves a couple of chapters all by himself.

Yehudah says:

This is all politics as usual and continued guilt by association. The circle doesn’t end. Nevertheless, that FOX News and other “news” organizations should give credibility to Breitbart’s smear and then cause the Obama administration and the NAACP to fall all over themselves, since they don’t want to be seen as favoring African-Americans, was a total farce. And then after the doctored tape was distributed by these “news” sources the chutzpah of Pollak following Breitbart’s and Glenn Beck’s lead, saying that the Obama administration shouldn’t have reacted the way they did is unbelievable.

andrea says:

lisa, it’s clear that her remarks were taken out of context.

if you watch the full video, it’s also clear that the larger lesson is that she overcame her racial bias. how does it not register with any Jewish person, in a world where there is still anti-semitism, that bias of any kind is wrong?

andrea – since bias of any kind is wrong, then isn’t bias against “rich” wrong? Isn’t seeing the world as an us against them is wrong (however “them” is defined), just as bias against whites by blacks – which is where she started from – is wrong?

Rather nice publish. I just stumbled upon your weblog and wished to say that I have definitely enjoyed browsing your weblog posts. After all I’ll be subscribing to your rss feed and I hope you write once more soon!

I have no idea how any news channel would have reacted to what I thought was something odd and a bit complicated, thus making it important in the world situation we now have. But just in case I come across something like that I want to tell someone immediatedly, in strict confidence.

I don’t think any news show should give out news based on their own personal beliefs. How do you feel about this?I’m having trouble finding international and national news merged into one show. I just want the traditional news where the anchor reads the introduction, he/she talks about it, a video is shown and she just moves onto the next story.

I have and I really think that in this economic crisis we are in, that we deserve to hear good news. I would rather hear good news than stuff about bail out plans and all the jobs being lost. And I am down right tired of hearing about the stock market.

I dont’ want a discussion show, just traditional news. Thank you. Please tell me what channel the show is on and what time as well as the timezone you’re referring to.
