NAACP launches coalition watchdog site to ‘monitor’ Tea Party ‘racists’
The Daily Caller ^ | 9-2-10 | Matthew Boyle

Posted on 09/02/2010 9:00:41 AM PDT by Justaham

The NAACP partnered with Media Matters, Think Progress and New Left Media to launch teapartytracker.org, a website that will specifically publish and monitor “racism and other forms of extremism within the Tea Party movement.”

Media Matters and Think Progress representatives said their content and reporting haven’t changed and that the NAACP approached their organizations seeking only to republish select content they’ve produced. The NAACP’s new teapartytracker.org is aimed specifically at highlighting “racism” in the Tea Party.

New Left Media, the duo of Chase Whiteside and Erick Stoll who use a “Trojan trick” to get interviews with Tea Partiers, is also a partner organization on the new site.

As for what Media Matters, New Left Media, Think Progress and the NAACP plan to do with teapartytracker.org, Think Progress editor Faiz Shakir and Media Matters Vice President for Research and Communications Ari Rabin-Havt said the NAACP contacted them about sharing content related to the Tea Party.

Shakir said the website isn’t meant to attack the Tea Party, only to “hold it accountable.”

“When they display intolerance and the kinds of racial signs that we’ve seen and the kinds of angry rhetoric, there’s nobody pushing back on that rhetoric or to check the record or fact-check it,” Shakir said. “I think it [the website] should be viewed in light of the NAACP being opposed to the intolerant elements of the Tea Party.”

Conservative media guru Andrew Breitbart, who was once a victim of New Left Media’s trickery (though he says he doesn’t object to that type of journalism), said Think Progress and Media Matters shouldn’t, by any means, partner with an advocacy group, especially the NAACP, in trying to the paint the Tea Party a certain color.

1. Being racist is not illegal.

2. Tea Partiers are not racist.

Other than those two minor points, keep up the great ideas, NAACP!

So it is only fitting that the tea party monitor the NAACP for the exact same reason.

Outside of a few cooks that would be present in any large political movement (NAACP—they’re some cooks in your group, too), there is no racism in the Tea party. It’s simply a political movement. Nothing more and nothing less. My advice to the NAACP is to stop the emotionally charged race baiting and to challenge the group in intellectual debate. Or, have they already concluded that would be a loser?

"The NAACP partnered with Media Matters, Think Progress and New Left Media to launch teapartytracker.org, a website that will specifically publish and monitor “racism and other forms of extremism within the Tea Party movement.”

So bigotry, racism and hate will be focused to project these attitudes and behaviors on the objects of their hatred.

IOW, run-of-the-mill Soros funded "Progressive" effort.

How true. The NAACP will never allow the black community to progress. In order to be relevant they must keep black America in the 50s & 60s. In the same way the PLO and Hammas will never allow ME peace. If they did they’d become instantly redundant.

I think they can look all they want. And when they catch themselves supplying infiltrators and plants at the Tea Parties to make us look bad, then they can report themselves too.

Then, they can all go and do something else with themselves too. But I’ll leave it to you to guess what I mean.

Who is watching these ROEs (Race Oriented Entity)?

NAACP
National Black Caucus
New Black Panther Party
etc.,

If you define your organization by race, are you not by definition racist?

That is why there is NOT a National Association for the Advancement of White People, the National White Caucus, or the White Panthers.

Use common sense here people to identify the true racists among us.

“When they display intolerance and the kinds of racial signs that we’ve seen and the kinds of angry rhetoric"

There's nothing liberals are more protective of, with the possible exception of their "right" to kill unborn babies, than anyone being seen as using any of their patented activities.

Of course, when they display intolerance, racial signs or signs with cross-hairs or Hitler mustaches on the president's face then it is anyone who criticizes them for it who is the hater.

If there is one thing that is consistent about Progressives it is inconsistent logic.

Progressive politics today personifies the classic Baby Boomer mentality: "It's all about what I want, and I'm justified in throwing a tantrum aimed at anyone who I think stands in the way of me getting everything that makes me feel good about me.

Because me feeling good about me is all that matters."

Man, they have a black pres—ent, a black AG, and they feel the need to monitor whites. At what point will these morons recognize they are the problem? Shoosh. I would advise hiring monitors to monitor the monitors since they have a history of making sh*t up.

Nothing wrong with that. Sure, they’ll entice, beguile, or trick some Partier into saying something stupid, then hold it up as an example of an attitude that permeates the movement. That little piece of transparent skullduggery is a given. But we need to keep the “watchdogs” honest. So wherever a damning incident is cited let’s make sure we tell “the rest of the story”.

Be wary of strangers who seem bent on goading you into some kind of racist rant. But don’t let the enemy sow distrust in our ranks either. That too is one of his tricks.

The Tea Party movement is against Big Government (which means Big Taxes). It is a repudiation of government acting like a thug.

The NAALCP and organizations like it WANT taxes, because that is how they see "their people" getting their hands on other people's money through confiscation of those who have it, to give away programs to those who want it. It is "stealth reparations."

And....that is the whole conflict in a nutshell. Until people understand that, they won't get the big picture.

The "racism" screech is simply a tactic.

In the end, it is all about power (theirs) and money (yours).

Their 'logo' at the top of the page. Think about that. If you are going to "watch" something so you can report on it, then why "watch" if it never boils. Another well-thought-out lib slogan. These people amaze me.

Now that the NAACP has given us a heads-up on what they plan to do, we must turn our backs to them, ignore them and conduct ourselves as usual.

This is how you deal with race-baiters. Shoot em’ down in print when it is called for, but, otherwise, ignore them. They're itchin’ for a fight, and they're trying to get in our faces. Keep a discreet eye on them in particular, and ignore them in general.

This may be off topic, but I have to tell you about something that happened to me yesterday.

I was sitting in an outside teller lane of the local Bank of America, when a black man of about 50 something (well dressed and driving a nice SUV) drove up in the lane next to me. He started staring at me, then addressing me. Due to the traffic noise, I could only catch certain words and phrases. Among them; ‘You think you better?’..’whites’..’We’re in charge’...’You gonna get your comeuppance’...
I rolled up the window and was about to call the teller for security when he drove off.

What set this guy off? Was I, a young white female in her father’s caddy- an easy target for his hate?
I did nothing/said nothing to this man.
I’ve never encountered anything like this in my life, and I was really getting frightened.

Attacks on whites seem to be growing daily.
Empowered by Obama, it is only going to get worse.

Exactly!! Breitbart should set up a site dedicated to getting audio/video of leftists spewing racist rants and acts of sabotage at tea party events. He would need several servers to support all the files though.

Whenever you are passing a liberal event, take pictures of any racist or Nazi signs. Submit them to teapartytracker.org and see if they will post them. Of course, you can’t tell them where the photo was really taken.

It would be great of we could get them to post lots of left wing fanatic pictures thinking that they are from Tea Party events.
