So the NAACP thinks the Tea Party is racist. Ha! What do THEY know? They can’t even get the BCS straight. How many of you think….
That’s the NCAA? Oops…
The NAACP can’t even keep the Space Shuttle running and thinks they need to be “reaching out to the Muslim world!” What would the late Alan Shepard think of…
Well who in Hell is the NAACP?
Association of WHAT people? You can’t say THAT! You’ve got to say African-Americans now.
OH… THOSE guys! THEY’RE still around? You’re kidding!
Wait… THEY think the Tea Party folks are racist??? Geez! At least the Tea Party folks don’t care what color some one is – or if they even HAVE a color. Is white a color?
Today, NAACP delegates passed a resolution to condemn extremist elements within the Tea Party, calling on Tea Party leaders to repudiate those in their ranks who use racist language in their signs and speeches.
Look, the idiotic and, yes, bigoted statement the NAACP put out wasn’t intended for the knowledgeable public. It was aimed at the shrinking base of the organization. They are speaking to inner-city activists and black (wait… black, African-American or Colored… which is it?) preachers in an effort to spread a destructive message of hate. They want lower-income minorities to hear this twisted propaganda from the pulpit and community centers in attempted grass-roots agitation.
The alleged acts that the NAACP claims have been not been verified. Yes, there were a few idiots – out of millions across the country for the last year – who said and did some really stupid and reprehensible things. The same sort of acts were documented at the Million Man March. Neither venue, group or any of the sub-human things said or done are acceptable. So why are a few Tea Party fools, who just happen to oppose an African-American president, singled out?
The NAACP, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, the Congress of Racial Equality and just plain folks, took to the streets in the ’60’s to protest the vile practice of institutional bigotry and racism. Now, Tea Party activists are using the same protest vehicle to demand other challenges to constitutional freedoms.
Taking a cue from the Obama administration, the self-proclaimed leadership of the African-American population labels anyone that doesn’t think as they do as being racist. It doesn’t matter the subject or even if the persons so accused are, themselves, black; if you disagree with a hard left political agenda, well, you’re a bigot.
Man is man because he is free to operate within the framework of his destiny. He is free to deliberate, to make decisions, and to choose between alternatives. He is distinguished from animals by his freedom to do evil or to do good and to walk the high road of beauty or tread the low road of ugly degeneracy. Martin Luther King, Jr., The Measures of Man, 1959
Dr. King fought – and died – to obtain for his people freedom; true, unbridled freedom. And with that freedom, he wanted everyone to “operate within the framework of his destiny,” not attack those who are of another opinion and use the cry of racism to justify hate.
By issuing this bizarre and patently absurd statement in an attempt to vilify those who disagree with Barack Obama, the NAACP has further emphasized its irrelevancy.
Should we be waiting for them to issue a statement condemning the tactics used by the New Black Panther Party at voting venues in 2008? Or what about the negative stereotypes and denigration of women promulgated by black hip-hop “artists?” Have any of these folks ever seen a Chris Rock routine? Is this once noble organization going to “do good and walk the high road of beauty or tread the low road of ugly degeneracy?”
I guess not. We’d probably have the whole BCS thing resolved long before then.
