Skip to comments.NAACP launches coalition watchdog site to ‘monitor’ Tea Party ‘racists’
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 havent changed and that the NAACP approached their organizations seeking only to republish select content theyve produced. The NAACPs 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 isnt meant to attack the Tea Party, only to hold it accountable.
When they display intolerance and the kinds of racial signs that weve seen and the kinds of angry rhetoric, theres 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 Medias trickery (though he says he doesnt object to that type of journalism), said Think Progress and Media Matters shouldnt, 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.
Look at the lengths they have to go to invent one!
If point#1 were true, the NAALCP would be in trouble.
I just want these people to go jump off a bridge.
WHEN ARE YOU MORONS GOING TO GET IT ? IT IS NOT BECAUSE OF THE COLOR OF YOUR SKIN. IT IS THAT WE DON’T LIKE WHAT YOU STAND FOR, WE DONT WANT YOUR NANNY STATE. WE DONT WANT YOUR HANDOUTS. WE HATE WHEN YOU USE THE RACE CARD AND WHINE AND DWELL IN SELF PITY ABOUT THE PAST. WE HATE WHO YOU ARE, NOT WHAT YOU ARE.
go to hell NACCP.
I hope I make your front page.
This is a great Opportunity!!!!
As always,I will have a rather large poster of Thomas Sowell for President when I attend a rally!!!
I dare them to call me a racist...
racism and other forms of extremism within the Tea Party movement. hahahahahahahah
Pot calling the Kettle “black”
Let them piss away their money on this BS. It’s better spent money than a lot of ways that racist NAACP organization spends it normally.
Maybe the Tea Parties should start a moniter racism at the the NAACP we can begin with Sharpton.
What are they going to do, call us racists?
Aren’t they already doing that?
Not sure if the correct word to use to describe this is irony, hypocrisy, arrogance, or chutzpah.
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?
Invest the money in soap and water those filthy clowns look like they need a bath.
So......who’s going to monitor the racism of the NAACP???
Go for it.
Waste your time and money.
You know -- like demanding lower taxes.
