    Ms. Sherrod is in the public eye.  She was expected to have to make a public statement.  She stayed classy and said what she needed to and what her sense of humanity compelled her to say...

    ...IN HER SITUATION.

    And even MoT is in the public eye, so it is not different for him either...   IN HIS SITUATION.

    When you're in the public eye, you have to be respectful about innocent people that might be hurt about what you say.

    BUT...

    I'm just another anonymous person hidden behind a user name.  It's a different context for me and I have no compunction about about giving my opinion of Breitbart loud and clear and full of profanity if I feel like it.

    No one who is a close friend of the Breitbart family is going to read my itty bitty comment here and give it a moments thought or be troubled by any crass language.

    But venting and cursing has never been my style anyway.  To me it comes across as immature - even when it is done at DK.  It doesn't accomplish anything.

    Breitbart was a message manipulator that sought to promote one political ideology and party over another.  He sometimes succeeded in exposing certain weaknesses of his opposition.  At many times however, he simply lied and distorted.  And even when he disrupted the lives of others or caused others hardship, he never seemed to have any conscience about it.  To him it just appeared to be a noble war.

    Breitbart was a propagandist and a racist.  I'm glad he can no longer continue his work, harming our society, even as I say a silent prayer for his soul.

    I'm not liberal. I'm actually just anti-evil, OK? - Elon James White
