The NAACP Takes The Low Road of Ugly Degeneracy

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….

Huh?

That’s the NCAA?  Oops…

OH… Sorry!

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…

WHAT!!??

NASA?

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.

  1. The Tea-Partiers number one issue is out-of-control federal spending that is driving up the federal budget deficit and piling onto the national debt.

    Despite a proud history of fighting for the rights of a subjugated minority, today’s NAACP’s number one issue is getting money from those who work hard for a living and distributing it to those who do not. In support of this issue they’ve lived contentedly for years on the Democrat Party’s plantation, providing manpower and votes during elections with nary a complaint. The symbiosis between the NAACP and the Dems has worked well for all involved as you can see from the educational achievements and standard of living of black folks in major urban centers.

    So the conflict between the Tea Party and NAACP is one between savers and spenders, host and leech.

    We can ignore the NAACP because they’ve sold their souls for a pittance. They got a lousy deal.

  2. The NAACP has rendered themselves irrelevant with these latest accusations. First I would just like to state a fact. Tea Parties in SC has been successful in helping the first minority woman (Gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley) win her primary for Governor and we were also successful in helping the first black republican (Tim Scott) win his primary for the first congressional district since reconstruction. I don’t think we need to argue with the NAACP on this, no need to lower ourselves to their level, the facts speak for themselves. Below in Tim Scotts press release on this, he says it better than I could.

    TIM SCOTT STATEMENT ON NAACP RESOLUTION CONDEMNING TEA PARTY AS “RACIST”

    Tim Scott, Republican candidate for Congress in South Carolina’s First Congressional District, issued the following statement today:

    “I understand that the NAACP, at its annual conference in Kansas City, will vote today on a resolution condemning the Tea Party movement as “racist”. I believe that the NAACP is making a grave mistake in stereotyping a diverse group of Americans who care deeply about their country and who contribute their time, energy and resources to make a difference.”

    “As I campaign in South Carolina, I participate in numerous events sponsored by the Tea Party, 9/12, Patriot, and other like-minded groups, and I have had the opportunity to get to know many of the men and women who make up these energetic grassroots organizations. Americans need to know that the Tea Party is a color-blind movement that has principled differences with many of the leaders in Washington, both Democrats and Republicans. Their aim is to support the strongest candidates – regardless of color or background – who will fight to return our country to its Constitutional roots of limited government, fiscal responsibility, and free markets.”

  3. When, finally, we as a people come together to form the NAAAP, National Association for the Advancement of All People I’m all in. In the interim, in my humble opinion, any group, organization, club, affiliation, who uses race color or ethnic origings in it’s title is ipso-facto discriminatory. This list includes the NAACP, Black Panthers (New or Old), Laraza, PLA, IRA, all of them.

  4. Bob Owens over at the Washington Examiner (a great conservative paper in our nation’s capital) has a short but sweet survey of what others have said and quotes Ward Connerly’s 2004 prediction about the NAACP:

    …it is not unusual for organizations to find themselves living off their past and not keeping pace with changing times. Instead, they become stagnant and atrophy fighting old battles that no longer apply, never realizing when they have achieved what they set out to accomplish. Preservation of the organization becomes more important than the original mission…

    …Today, the NAACP is not so much a civil-rights organization as it is a trade association with clear links to the Democratic party, despite the claim of its chairman that “the NAACP has always been non-partisan.” Such a statement doesn’t pass the giggle test. The NAACP uses the plight of poor black people as a fig leaf to hide its true agenda of promoting policies that benefit their dues-paying members, not black people in general or poor black people in particular…

    He’s got several links to great observations by a host of folks.

  5. They should focus all these efforts to make sure their children get a good education, keep them off drugs and help the less fortunate rather than going the political route and looking for someone or some business to sue.
