NAACP won’t directly address racism leveled against Clarence Thomas at progressive protest
The Daily Caller ^ | 7 Feb 2011 | Matthew Boyle

Posted on 02/07/2011 10:02:27 AM PST by mandaladon

The NAACP won’t directly address the racism displayed by progressive protesters outside a summit hosted by billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch at the end of January in Palm Springs, Calif., but the organization did call for an end to all “vitriolic language.”

In response to The Daily Caller’s request for comment on a video showing progressive protesters calling for somebody to “string up” African American Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, or “send him back into the fields” or “cut off all his toes and feed them to him one-by-one,” NAACP spokesman Hilary Shelton pointed to the organization’s recent resolution calling for a “civil political discourse.”

I hate the term "Progressive" when applied to liberals...there's nothing progressive about their views.

Why do they hide behind the “Progressive” label? Are they ashamed of being Liberal? You always hear “Conservative Talk Radio” but when a Liberal station is on the air it’s always “Progressive Talk Radio” or “Alternative Broadcasting”. Cowards, the bunch of them.

Just as NOW doesn’t care about women slaves under Islam, so the NAACP doesn’t care about death threats to African Americans who don’t think Correct Thoughts.

They don’t like him because he should reflect what their kids should be; not the reality of the deadbeats they are.

Did you watch the Super Bowl? If so, did you catch the Pepsi commercial with these two black people. At the end it looked like the black guy was hitting on the white girl on the next bench. The black woman threw a Pepsi can at the guy but missed and hit the white girl. If everything was reversed, would you have heard the ‘racism’ yelled????

The only views acceptable to a liberal are their own.

Liberal isn’t a correct term either, there is nothing liberal about their view.

However, those are the terms we have to work with, and we’ve been very able in exposing the current use of the label Liberal for what it is, a term with connotations of lies, deceit and oppression.

I was thinking the same thing as that commercial was running. It was offensive on so many levels it hard to point to one area. Overall the ads last night were horrible. Did like the dogs partying though in the Bud Light one.

If Thomas is murdered, then the veneer of the rule of law and the Constitution is gone. I expect patriots to go to arms if that happens.

Through my gales of laughter I mumbled the same thought.

NAACP does not represent blacks, it's a Dem front group.
NOW does not represent women, It's a Dem front group.
AARP does not represent seniors, it's a Dem front group.
These groups have been corrupted into the liberal sphere not because it helps their constituents but because it helps the groups leadership maintain their positions.
It seems that groups by their very definition are socialistic in nature and socialists naturally gravitate to the leadership.
Independent minded individuals don't normally form into groups.

"Liberal isn’t a correct term either, there is nothing liberal about their view."

You're both right. That's why I've started calling them what they are...Leftists, Communists, Socialists, tyrants, anarchists, atheists, statists, dictators, oligarchs, etc. I mostly use Leftist, though.

There were several disturbing commercials during Super Bowl. Fortunately the ETrade baby came to the rescue; and some Bud Light ones also. Last good one was the old folks home where they kept hearing the TV ad wrong.

Technically you are correct, however, on the practical side, I agree with Rush, use the term Liberal whenever possible because most people understand what a bunch of losers Liberals are. They don’t necessarily think that of Leftists.

The NAALCP has two missions - fight for ‘civil rights’ (i.e. set-asides and racial quotas) and advance left-wing liberalism whenever possible.

If your black, you’re in. If your black and Conservative, you’re out. Skin color is only a part of their mindset. You have to tote the idealogy as well.

I fell asleep in the 2nd quarter, woke up in the 3rd, so thankfully missed most of them and half-time stupidity

I do not know what those exec’s were thinking (or smoking or drinking) at the time they decided on half-time shows. The last four or five were disasters. During the Rolling Stone’s show they wouldn’t let anyone over 30 get close to the stage. The Stones are in their sixties. Go figger. The opening of Super Bowl was all patriotic (well except for the screeching and wailing of the national anthem). Wonder when they’ll do a patriotic half-time show. Never mind, I answered it myself already.

If the NAACP doesn’t denounce this, and very publicly, then they should have absolutely NO credibility, anymore, in the eyes of anyone in this country. It should be plain to everyone that they don’t care about ALL ‘colored people’, they only care about liberal colored people, and thus their name should be changed to what Rush has been calling them for years, the NAALCP.

Their name is a lie and always has been. What is liberal about Liberalism?

Sadly, they’ve gotten us to switch again and now we’re Reds, while they get to be Blue.

As in Better Dead than Red and True Blue. We need to get that switched back this election cycle. Obama is a Red.

Conservatives were stupid to jump on that color coded tar baby. I hope we’re not stuck with it this cycle.

This kind of stuff reminds me of the stuff that Muhammed Ali got away with during his 3 fights with Joe Frazier. Joe was a gorilla. Joe wasn’t an authentic black man. Joe was a tool of the whites. The Media let all of that go unexamined.

We don’t think that the NAACP wasn’t watching & taking notes?

Because they're not liberals, they're facists. Wanna-be totalitarians. They hijacked the 'Liberal' moniker to make them seem more 'inclusive'.

Ironic that Blacks’ greatest ire is reserved for Blacks who leave the liberal plantation.

One suspects the issue is not equal rights, but promoting the Black agenda.

And note that (1) retalitory violence against a spouse is okay, and (2) their reaction to hitting the innocent white woman was to run away, not help her (though the woman did say an “I’m sorry”).

I once wrote to Budweiser complaining about two of their Bud Light ads. My grandson pointed out to me that ‘weren’t those people stealing?’ - the two ads were: Bud Light truck getting an oil change and the crew busts into the bottom to steal beer for a party (drinking while on duty); the second one was the bungee jumper stealing beer from the girls in the rowboat.
Budweiser writes back saying they were meant as humor. Ok, funny to who? This says we can all now go and steal beer from a Bud Light truck or anyone who has Bud Light around. Tongue in cheek statement here.
