FL Sheriff to Local NAACP President: I Cannot Support Your Agenda
Breitbart.com ^ | 7-30-2013 | AWR Hawkins

Posted on 07/30/2013 6:24:57 PM PDT by servo1969

Lee County, Florida Sheriff Mike Scott sent a letter to Lee County Branch NAACP president James Muwakkil explaining his disdain for the way he believes the NAACP ignores "epidemic" black-on-black violence in certain parts of Florida while allegedly trying to recast the Trayvon Martin shooting as white vs. black violence to score political points.

Sheriff Scott was invited to the NAACP's "Freedom Fund Awards Banquet" and was even asked to sponsor the event financially, but as he made clear in his July 16 letter, "[he] will not be doing either." Regarding the lack of NAACP response to black-on-black violence, Scott writes:

Record numbers of young, black males have been gunned down in Ft. Myers in an epidemic of alarming proportions over the last few years. In virtually every instance the killer was also black and the majority of those cases remain open... To date I am unaware of any appreciable attention or public outcry the NAACP locally or nationally have afforded these issues in our own, proverbial backyard.

Scott then turned his attention to the Zimmerman trial: "Conversely, you immediately inserted yourself and the Lee County Branch in the matter of Trayvon Martin's tragic death in a city hours from ours and publicly declared the matter to have been mishandled by the police."

The Sheriff went on to describe how that local NAACP branch had reacted to Zimmerman's "not guilty" verdict and suggested they would have "applauded" it had the same trial, verdict, and "justice system" convicted Zimmerman. He suggests that by going along with the media ploy of labeling Zimmerman "white" instead of Latino or "half Latino," the local NAACP put itself in a position where only a guilty verdict could be accepted.

I hope not. I don’t support their criminal debasing agenda either.

Good for Sheriff Mike Scott - the more people willing to step up and speak truth to lies the better off we'll all be... Black on black crime is a slaughter that works for groups that make their money shaking down guilty white liberals. For the black community the slaughter has been a disaster... for all of us it's been a disaster.

Well I might suggest something a bit more pointed that “I can’t support your agenda” as one might as well hang for a sheep as a goat. How about “What’s it going to take to persuade you fellows to call a truce in the black on black crime that’s dragging our policing resources way down and not winning you any happiness prizes either?”

The NAACP should be banned as a racist hate group!

It is, what IT is!

Evil knows no color per se, but evil can unfortunately leverage color as it leverages any other issue it can get its tentacles into. This is an enabling game, the black pity party and the white indulgence party. And it’s all what GWB correctly identified as the soft bigotry of low expectations, though this soft bigotry can bring many a life to a hard end.

Sheriff is an elected position. He will only be out of a job if he chooses to resign, or doesn't run for re-election.

See the demographic data for Lee County, FL, and you might be able to forecast the outcome of a re-election contest:

Sent him a nice thank you. It is about time a public official calls out the NAACP for what they say and do.

My bad. The department were I worked, the Sheriff was appointed by the elected country administrator ... therefore could be fired.

It’s all about taking away freedom, and the right of the individual. For collectivism of course.

How many people in this country know what this means?

I’ll say 1 in 100.

I look more fundamentally, but I’m one of those crazy Christians with the “X-ray spiritual eyes” (actually anyone can get them, if they know the bible, the gospel is not rocket science). Freedom is a good thing. Good things are given by God.

Anyhow yes there’s a real devil and demons. And yes they want to eat up anything good... commonly using people as pawns... freedom will fall before them too if they get their way. You need something sterner than the abstract notion of “freedom” to rah-rah for here. You need God....

“...the NAACP ignores “epidemic” black-on-black violence...”

Ain’t no money in that, ain’t no face time on TV in that, ain’t no solution in that......

Bless you!

I am very pro GOD!

You do have to act, our savior said, the person that hears these things and does them...

With out action we are dead. The once saved always saved people, are toast.

Salvation accepted, salvation acted upon (”worked out” per the bible). The former is a yes/no, the latter one has infinite degrees of possibility in this world (but the final product however rich or meager appears in heaven).

Even if it is a racist hate group, it shouldn’t be banned, because we don’t do that in America.

Sure. What racial hate groups do you think have been “banned”, in US history?
