I condemn the NAACP. Instead of criticizing tea parties, the NAACP would be better served denouncing the racist comments made by a member of the New Black Panther Party and its voter intimidation outside a Philadelphia polling place in the last presidential election. As a frequent speaker at tea party rallies around the country, I can assure the NAACP that the tea party movement’s concerns are about President Obama’s policies and not his race.
I’m deeply concerned that the NAACP is being used as a political tool to do the dirty work of the progressive movement. I urge blacks concerned about the tea parties to read the Contract from America — a list of policy objectives for Congress that was developed by tea party members nationwide. These objectives are clearly about limited government and liberty. In fact, the NAACP should be very concerned Obama’s cap-and-trade energy policy will lead to higher energy prices and higher unemployment – particularly among poor and minority households.
* New Black Panther party to attend Beck’s rally on 8/28 in DC
For what reason do the black panthers have to attend this rally other than to start problems? If they see Beck as a racist and they find it offensive that he’s holding the rally on the day of Martin Luther King’s birthday in celebration, it’s not hard to imagine that problems might arise from this. The majority of tea party goers are peaceful. The majority of black panther party members are not. Regardless, I plan on going to this rally and I hope that things will be peaceful.—DerrickFiddle
Patriot’s Corner –Posted by Gary Fouse
The Washington Times has done what few if any other media organs have done; they have published a time line of events involving the Department of Justice dismissal of charges against the New Black Panther Party thugs who showed up at a Philadephia polling place in the 2008 elections armed with para-military uniforms, billy clubs and plenty of racist epithets. This time line raises disturbing questions not only against Eric Holder’s Justice Department, but also against any involvement in the White House and/or NAACP in the decision to dismiss that case.
One might ask why the mainstream media has not been all over this. (Then again, one might not.) Perhaps, that is the excuse Rep. Brad Sherman might have used two days ago at a town hall meeting in Reseda, California when he told his audience that he was “unaware of the case”.
Democratic Congressman, Lies about Black Panther Story
That is a preposterous statement. Sherman, a Democrat, is fully aware of the situation involving charges of anti-Semitism at UC-Irvine (of which I often write). To his credit, he has followed the situation carefully and made public statements critical of the university. Yet, he is unaware of the New Black Panther case? Well, if he doesn’t read the Washington Times when he is in Washington or watch Fox News, how would he know? (That is meant sarcastically.)
But back to the Administration. If the (post-racial) White House got involved in this case, why? Perhaps, the key to understanding it lies in that old guy named Jeremiah Wright, who the majority of the nation chose to ignore during the last election.
And what about the NAACP, an organization that was born out of issues like black voting rights in the South? Why would they seek to have charges dismissed that are a mirror image of what black would-be voters had to endure before the Civil Rights era and the Voting Rights Act? As we speak, the NAACP is holding its annual convention in Kansas City and expected to issue a statement accusing the Tea Party movement of racism. If these reports are true, then the NAACP will be guilty of gross hypocrisy for the entire country to see.
How can the rest of the media ignore such a major story right under their collective noses?
(Don’t answer that.)
~Snippet NAACP is connected with NBPP so WE should denounce them as racist publicly
* After a frenzy of interactions between Justice, the White House – involving at one point lobbying by the NAACP Legal Defense Fund for dismissal – on May 15, King issued the order to dismiss three of the four charges in the initial complaint against the Panthers.
Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) was the lone member of the Senate Judiciary Committee to make on-the-record remarks about the shady path higher-ups at Justice took on the way to taking the action to spike the case.
