EPG Security Group encounters protestors while with client Andrew Brietbart. June 2011″
Description; CEO Erik Bergling succefully extracts EPG’s client Andre Breitbart from the middle of the convention center as a flash protest took place directed at his presence. Due to EPG’s advance planning techniques, Mr. Bergling was able to neogotiate the safe extraction of Mr. Breitbart out of the building.


In June 2010, Breitbart posted clips from the NAACP Freedom Fund dinner which allegedly proved that USDA Georgia Director of Rural Development Shirley Sherrod was a racist. Per the post, Brown supposedly admitted to “racially discriminat[ing] against a white farmer.” The response from the crowd was “hardly the behavior of the group now holding itself up as the supreme judge of another groups’ racial tolerance. Sherrod subsequently resigned, allegedly amidst pressure from the White House.
The only thing that could derail Breitbart’s narrative would be if the supposed targets of Sherrod’s bigotry came out and defended her. Which they did. That might be because she did, in fact, help the farmers, among other white families. The clips Breitbart posted were selectively edited to remove the portion of Sherrod’s speech where she spoke of how her initial misapprehensions about helping whites led her to realize that race shouldn’t be an issue in her job — the exact opposite of what Breitbart had claimed.
As soon as the full tape went public, the Beltway came down on Breitbart, who went into spin control mode. He argued that his post was never about Sherrod, a fact betrayed by his own writings.Meanwhile, some of the other Big X bloggers came to Breitbart’s defense, including one who seemed to be arguing that the White House and USDA were at fault for believing Breitbart.
