Video: John Stossal Covers Pigford Scandal In “Freeloaders” Report

In case you missed it, this comes via Breitbart TV:

Pigford is one of  the scandals  covered by Breitbart to which Van Jones objected  in his boycott letter to Arianna  Huffington,  characterizing it thus:

Breitbart’s long history of attacking Black people and institutions — from ACORN to Shirley Sherrod to Black farmers who were compensated for years of discrimination — has few parallels among mainstream media figures. Worse, these attacks were based on deceptive editing and willful distortion of the truth. [sic] That Huffington Post would choose to elevate Breitbart when news outlets from ABC to Fox News have distanced themselves from him is both tone-deaf and insulting.

The truth is coming out about the Pigford scandal. It’s obvious that the willful distortions, racism and fraud are on their side. The real victims of the Pigford settlement are the black farmers who had legitimate cases of discrimination, as Lee Stranahan notes at Big Government:

The bigger fraud, however, has been perpetrated on the legitimate black farmers whose cases and stories were hijacked; people like Arkansas farmer Jimmy Dismuke, who was shown in the story. The ‘$50,000 check’ fraud was done on the back of hard working farmers who actually did suffer discrimination at the hands of a huge government organization with no real accountability. In fact, part of the reason the USDA has played along with writing those $50,000 checks to people is to keep the status quo at the USDA.

That Van Jones’ Color of Change is proud  defend this travesty using lies and smears against its primary whistle-blower is beyond the pale. But it’s par for the course for the communist left.
