ERICKSON: For years, it's been very easy to label a conservative a racist for disagreeing with the left and have them driven from the stage. Unfortunately, Shirley Sherrod today has become a victim of that.

ERICKSON: Oh, absolutely. I think that she was taken out of context. Two wrongs don't make a right. But, again, this is what happens routinely by the left to the right.
