NAACP Won't Release Text of Tea Party Resolution Until October
The American Spectator ^ | July 14, 2010 | Philip Klein

Posted on 07/14/2010 3:05:10 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

The NAACP will not release the actual text of its resolution condemning "racist elements" within the Tea Party movement until October, when the organization's board gives it final approval, a spokesman for the group has told me.

Though the final version has not surfaced, I reported on some excerpts from the preliminary draft of the resolution yesterday, which I was able to record before a live webcast broadcasting the NAACP conference was cut off. Among other things, an early draft called Tea Party movement, a "threat to the pursuit of human rights, justice and equality for all."

In a blog post on the passage of the resolution on its own website, the NAACP writes:

The proposed resolution had generated controversy on conservative blogs, where in some cases the language has been misconstrued to imply that the NAACP was condemning the entire Tea Party movement itself as racist.

Let Maximum Leader’s enablers show their blatant racism right before the elections. Tea Partiers won’t mind, I’m sure.

How the Hell can anyone vote for something that hasn't been finalized?
This is total BS propaganda maneuver.

This will be a big October non-surprise. The racists are providing too much information.

It’s hilarious when racists label others as racist and then won’t fess up to it.

The NAACP is irrelevant today except for older blacks involved in the civil rights movement.

I hope they come after the tea party in a big way that way they piss off conservatives, libertarian and people who are sick to death of their BS race card playing antics and drive them to the polls

Good idea. It’ll motive Tea Party members to recruit more and it will remind the nation of the idiocy of these people. With the economy in a further shambles, there’ll be less tolerance for this scum.

To say that there is a credibility deficit in that organization is an understatement.

Just in time to divide and stir up hatred again before elections.

(Which is why they are doing it now, because Beck’s meeting at the feet of Lincoln is effective)

Here is one of the pictures from the NAACP website on the article concerning the Tea Party Resolution. When I saved the image I noticed they had it labeled at their site as "nword". You notice it includes the image from that Texas nutjob (Robertson) who was booted out of that event for his sign and been repudiated by the all the local and national Tea Party Organizations...but why would the NAACP let the facts stand in their way???

I also notice that the sign, as written, is directed to all taxpayers as despised slaves of the slave owner, Congress. It doesn't have anything specifically to do with black people except using their experience as a metaphor for what a large percentage of Americans are experiencing at the hands of a rapacious federal government (for instance, the lifetime expropriation from a slave of the fruits of his labor in the old South was about 10%. Compare this to what the government takes now).

Note to NAACP: clean up your own back yard first, you know, the New Black Panther Party, race-baiting misery pimps like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, Rev. Wright and Louis Farrakhan, racist rappers who make the majority of their money off non-blacks, morons like Danny Glover, etc.

The NAACP is doing this to move the story away from Eric Holder and his racist Friends in the New Black Panther Party. One Racist Democratic Party Organization covering for another Racist Democratic Party Organization.

A release in October will be easier to remember in early November for those who need to be programmed to vote.

Black on the outside, red on the inside.

The NAACP association with the Communist Party of the USA is well documented.

“Much of the information I will present is taken from a book called Biographical Dictionary of the Left which was written by a Francis Gannon and was published by Western Islands back in 1969. If you can still find this book somewhere, I would recommend it.

The NAACP “emerged” in 1909, supposedly to promote equality and rights among the races. Needless to say, it has done neither.

However, the formation of this group was urged by the leading radicals of that day, among whom were Jane Addams and government school “educator” John Dewey. Other radicals were among the first officials in the organization. Among these was Oswald Garrison Villard, grandson of the infamous abolitionist, William Lloyd Garrison.

The first president of the NAACP was, strangely enough, a white man, Moorfield Story, a lawyer from Boston. Black radical WEB DuBois, who later joined the Communist Party, was the organization’s first director of publicity and research, as well as editor of the group’s monthly publication The Osiris. This publication gave DuBois an excellent outlet from which to pour forth all manner of racial invective against whites, supposedly in the name of “promoting equality.”

According to the Biographical Dictionary of the Left, “Long tenure in office has also been characteristic of the NAACP’s presidents—all white men: Moorfield Story (1910-1915), Joel Springarn (1915-1940), Arthur Springarn (1940-1966), and since 1966, Kivie Kaplan.” Since the Biographical Dictionary was published in 1969, obviously some things have changed. However, it is interesting to note how long the organization had white presidents, almost as if the radicals didn’t trust the blacks to take the organization in the proper direction (to the left).

WEB DuBois, one black that did hold a prominent position, was no problem because he was already on the left. DuBois was known to have “hailed the Russian Revolution of 1917” and he travelled to the Soviet Union in 1926 and 1936. He especially liked ‘the racial attitudes of the Communists’.”

In 1922 the NAACP started to receive grants from the Garland Fund, a big source of funding of Communist Party projects. Officials of the Garland Fund included Communists William Z. Foster, Benjamin Gitlow, Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, and Scott Nearing. Other prominent left-wing officials were Roger Baldwin, Sidney Hillman, and Harry F. Ward, the “Red Dean” of religion in America.” The Garland Fund continued to pour money into the NAACP until around 1934. Even when the money stopped, the Communist connections continued.

“In 1938, the NAACP was represented at the World Youth Congress, a Communist enterprise. In the 1940s the NAACP was affiliated with American Youth for a Free World, the American affiliate of the World Federation of Democratic Youth, a Communist clearing house.”

A most literate apologist for the NAACP was the well-known Langston Hughes. Hughes was affiliated with Communist Party projects from the mid-1920s until he passed away in 1967. In fact, in 1962, Hughes wrote a book entitled Fight for Freedom: The Story of the NAACP. In this book he stated the following:

“Attempts to label the NAACP subversive, Communist-influenced, or out and out Communist have continued for a long time.” In light of the evidence available, can anyone with a brain honestly wonder why?

The organization has, from time to time, gone through the sanitized ritual of “opposing Communism” but this has been a self-serving action designed to keep the support of those that are astute enough to see communism as a problem.

In 1946, the NAACP helped the Communist Party in one of its major political projects, the establishment of the Progressive Citizens of America—the basis for Henry Wallace’s Communist-dominated Progressive Party in the 1948 presidential election.

In 1953 the Communist newspaper Daily Worker recommended that Communists and labor unions “give every possible support to any and all campaigns conducted by the NAACP.” One can only wonder if this strategy has changed in the intervening years”.

They are waiting to video tape the marches in August and Sept.

They are praying that someone at the marches will make racist remarks, or have signs that they can take photos of that back their accusation.

The NAACP won't release the Tea Party Resolution until October but they are asking their members to sign this thinly veiled pledge directed at all the Tea Party haters.

Naacp_american

* I believe all Americans have equal rights and equal value.

* I cherish the diverse cultures, beliefs, and values of America.

* I believe we can disagree without being disagreeable.

* I repudiate all acts of racism and hate, both in words and action.

* I have faith in the promise of America – a promise built on mutual respect, common civility, and hope for a better tomorrow.

* I commit to building that better America by participating actively and peacefully in the democratic process.

We are one people. We are one nation. I’m an NAACP American.

The only hatin' I been hearin' is coming out of the NAACP. Just sayin"

FYI - Charity Navigator gives the NAACP it's next to lowest ranking (that was their ranking last year) a one star:

Fails to meet industry standards and performs well below most charities in its Cause.
