Skip to comments.Michelle Obama Rouses NAACP Before Vote Condemning 'Racist' Elements of Tea Party
Posted on 07/12/2010 7:11:32 PM PDT by Scythian
First Lady Michelle Obama brought renewed energy to the NAACP today, delivering the keynote speech at the annual convention one day before the nation's largest civil rights group is expected to condemn what it calls racist elements in the Tea Party movement.
The nation's largest and oldest civil rights organization will vote on the resolution Tuesday during its annual convention in Kansas City, Mo.
In her speech, the first lady focused on the issue of childhood obesity and her "Let's Move" initiative, but outside of her remarks, anti-Tea Party activism has been a key focus of the gathering, which conservative leaders say is driven solely by a political agenda.
Tea Party members have used "racial epithets," have verbally abused black members of Congress and threatened them, and protestors have engaged in "explicitly racist behavior" and "displayed signs and posters intended to degrade people of color generally and President Barack Obama specifically," according to the proposed resolution.

So this is what “Post-racial” means
Same as our post turtle president
Wasn’t Obama going to unify everyone? I mean, the Black Panthers stand in front of polling places with batans and scare people away and Obama drops the case through his DOJ, and now they’re ginnin’ up a race war against tea party folks?
Please, everyone watch Glenn Beck tomorrow, it’s going to be one of his most important shows.
She be hate’n on the crackers.
I’m sure she also condemned the Democratic Party for creating and nurturing the KKK... Yes, a bunch of white racists!
In the pic from the link MEchelle looks like she’s wearing Dorothy’s dress from the Wizard of Oz.
Oops, I must be racist/sarc
P.S. Who dresses that woman?
I think that was a typo——————what they meant was “Most Racial”
This is the MOST divisive and racist administration in history. And this is just the -resident’s wife speaking. Unreal.
Yes, yes, yes ... this will help mend the racial divide. /s Racist first Lady speaks. The divide gets even bigger.
Michelle obama to the naacp, “Hillary ain’t never been called a @#$%er.?
Didn’t Michelle sit in rev. Wright’s church for many years too? If so, I consider her to be no better than her husband.
Anyone that doubts that barack or michelle never heard rev. Wright make a lot of racial, hate-filled, or anti-American remarks is an idiot.
I heard Beck on the radio today. He’s truly nailed this administration’s goals. Made me really despise stupid, gullible liberals without a functioning brain cell. Wake the heck up morons!
What a totally classless First Lady.

Seems to me that the Obamas are getting a little desperate, playing the race card and all.
Barry doesn’t even have enough guts to do the deed himself. He has to send his wife out to do their dirty work.
Oh well, Michelle is enjoying herself. She hates Whitney, you know. And it her gets out of the house so Barry can play with his......male companions.
I would suggest, once again that the Democrat Party either force POTUS Barack Hussein Obama to resign or impeach him. These remarks by the FLOTUS are not acceptable under any circusmstances. These people are naught but America hating Black racists. They will not succeed in destroying America. They will destroy themselves and the Democrat Party in the process.
The very name is racist.
So you think they think we don’t know? I think they don’t care. They want this. Badly.
Before these two are done, the guillotine is going to be resurrected for some elitist hide; it'll be all the rage amongst what used to be the middle class.
You want to see a racist, Michelle? Look in the mirror. Though it may crack.
Such unseemly behavior in a first lady let alone any politician. To fight off her husband’s critics, she ‘gins up’ the NAACP to label Tea Partiers racist so that this can be used in the Nov. elections to keep both houses for Dems. Has someone has forgotten that one Dem favoring poll put the percentage of minorities in the Tea Party at 25%. I imagine labeling minorities as minority hating racists may not help but then again...maybe it’s intended to chastise that 25% into returning to the fold of the Democrat party. Why use Michelle? Couldn’t Obama use Rev. Wright or some other person that would distance the White House from actual racial agitation? It’s already known that the ‘New Black Panthers’ were daring Beck to show up on the mall for MLK’s birthday and first lady Michelle does THIS?
“....The nation’s largest and oldest civil rights organization will vote on the resolution Tuesday during its annual convention in Kansas City, Mo......”
It may have been a “Civil Rights Organization” back when, but IMO it’s foundering in a sea of Racism today.
Amazing how they would purposely alienate 70% of the voting population.
have verbally abused black members of Congress and threatened them...
and protestors have engaged in "explicitly racist behavior..."
and "displayed signs and posters intended to degrade people of color generally...
and President Barack Obama specifically..."
Have any of you reading this thread seen or heard anything to back up these allegations?
I call out the NAACP. Words are cheap and worthless. Show us the pictures. Let us listen to the audio. Show us the video. Prove your allegations or go home.
I think you are right on all points. Also, as long as we shoot on the vertical rather then the horizontal ... we will win. (just a shooters aside, nothing to see here.)
Exactly. The Obama’s are not the president and first lady of all the people - only some of the people.
I cannot stand being the Hated Cracker Honkey scumbag, the White Devil any more. Can I please be black now? The POTUS and the FLOTUS have convinced me that I, by virtue of the color of my skin, am completely without any merit whatsoever, and that I am to be driven before them in shame, and in exile.
I think the American public is learning who the REAL RACISTS are.....they are the DEMOCRAT PARTY....and those in the White House
I doubt if she even has a reflection.
You are a horrible RACIST SCUMBAG WHITEBREAD CRACKER for asking for this proof. What a racist thing to ask!
The headline makes it look like Michelle Obama mentioned the Tea Party. But the content of the excerpt makes it clear she did NOT mention the Tea Party...only that others in the NAALCP are upset at the Tea Party.
ABC is trying to start a race war. :)
I hereby condemn in the strongest possible terms the NAACP as a proven professional racist group of glass jawed thugs.
“So this is what Post-racial means
Same as our post turtle president”
Who needs AMC or TCM, we have “Dumb and Dumber” in the White House, new episodes daily!
And sadly, so did the kids. Can you imagine how they are faring in a private school (Sidwell Friends) full of rich, WHITE crackers???? It’s a good thing they import their friends from Chicago in.
Michelle Obama knows all there is to know about racism...since
she is a prime example of one! Geez...the arrogance just
takes my breath away!
"First Lady Michelle Obama brought renewed energy to the
NAACP Tea Party/America today".
think if we put on black face....we’ll get away with it? We are ONLY trying to be LIKE them!
There were no "racial epithets." There have been no racist signs.
These people are all filthy liars..........including the person pretending to be first lady.
I don’t speak jive. We’ll probably get busted when we take the kids down to the hood for ice cream.
Remember, Michelle is one of these people for whom all white folks are the same old same old ~ she doesn't discriminate. In her world, if you're not black, step back!
Michelle had her husband get rid of the special tuition DC provided folks to get their kids out of failing schools. That way she eliminated the possibility that her daughters would encounter any poor “Negroes” at Sidwell Friends.
On the one hand I see this as the administration endorsing the NAACP’s position that the Tea Party is fundamentally racist. Everyone knows about the vote later in the week and knows what the outcome will be, so by sending Michelle to speak, Obama has put his stamp of approval on it.
On the other hand, I’m guessing it’s traditional for Democrat presidents or first ladies to speak at this convention, so maybe it’s not so meaningful in itself (in fact didn’t the NAACP invite Bush to speak at one of their conventions?).
