Skip to comments.abc: What Do You Think of the NAACP's Condemning Tea Party Elements as 'Racist'?
Posted on 07/13/2010 9:05:51 AM PDT by maggief
The NAACP is expected to approve a resolution today condemning the Tea Party for "racist elements that are a threat to democracy."
The proposed resolution, which is expected to pass today at the organization's annual convention in Kansas City , Mo., cites cases of what it calls "explicitly racist behavior," including "signs and posters intended to degrade people of color generally and President Barack Obama specifically."
NAACP spokeswoman Leila McDowell told ABC News, "We're deeply concerned about elements that are trying to move the country back, trying to reverse the progress that we've made," and asked that "law-abiding members of the Tea Party repudiate those racist elements, that they recognize the historic and present racist elements that are within the Tea Party movement."

I’m guessing they didn’t ask their opponion about black pamper comments about killin whitey?
They want to know what we think? Where’s the online poll? Or did I miss it?
They never tire of their race baiting.
What they are actually doing is defending the incompetence of our current faux President.
There is no defense. The man is toatally unqualified for the job.
They call his incompetence racist on the part of those who point it out.
Every white man knew this was coming.It’s age old and has been around since affirmative action came on the scene. When people pointed out that affirmative action hires could not do the job, this same answer was used. It was racist to say that they were not qualified.
Just using the same old scam.

"The raised fist (also known as the clenched fist) is a salute and logo most often used by left-wing activists, such as: Marxists, anarchists, socialists, communists, pacifists, trade unionists, and black nationalists. The raised fist is usually regarded as an expression of solidarity, strength or defiance."
SEAN HANNITY: But Reverend Jeremiah Wright is not backing down and has not for years and in his strong stance on the teaching of black liberation theology is nothing new. He had the same things to say last spring when he appeared on "Hannity & Colmes:"
WRIGHT: If you're not going to talk about theology in context, if you're not going to talk about liberation theology that came out of the '60s, systematized black liberation theology that started with Jim Cone in 1968 and the writings of Cone and the writings of Dwight Hopkins and the writings of womynist theologians and Asian theologians and Hispanic theologians, then you can't talk about the black value system.
HANNITY: But I'm a reverend
WRIGHT: Do you know liberation theology, sir?
"Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal".--James (Jim) Cone,

What does ABC think of it? They are the news organization. You would think they could investigate the claims and report back. I know. Too much to ask for.
Has ABC covered Holder’s DoJ dropping charges based on race NBP case or has it covered the ‘kill crackers’ incident as it directly relates to the NBP, etc yet? But yeah, they will cover this because it is AGAINST the Tea Party or because it hope to further insinuate that the Tea Party is full of racists and extremists.....why the frak are people still watching ABC, let alone NBC, CBS, etc.? Idiots. =.=
Malik Zulu Shabazz, chairman of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense (NBPP):
"We believe in a Black first philosophy and a Black Liberation Theology."
Although it [The New Black Panther Party] says it sees capitalism as the fundamental problem with the world and revolution as the solution, the new party does not draw its influences from Marxism or Maoism as the original party did. Instead, in a carefully-worded, roundabout form of ethnic nationalism, they say that Marx based his ideology and teachings on indigenous African cultures, and that the NBPP therefore need not look to Marxism or Maoism as a basis for their program, but can look to ideologies that stem directly from those African origins.
No need to poll. The MSM has already decided what we think.
We are trying to degrade COMMUNISTS at the heart of our government, as well as their fellow travelers in the MSM, colleges, etc. That is not “racism” you morons- that is the desire for LIBERTY!
Nothing to see here move along.
NAACP = Racists as well as anti American
The comments on the ABC site are for the most part disturbing. The ‘guns of August’ scenario is looking more and more plausible.
I’m thinking that ABC ought to report the statements of the Black Panthers before they worry about Tea Partiers.
I think at one time, the NAACP was an organization of honorable people trying to do good. I now think that the NAACP is filled with disreputable race profiteers and race race baiters, who are *all* about the color of one’s skin, and could care less about the content of peoples character. And are the antithesis of the aspirations of Martin Luther King Jr.
If any group is harboring racists, the NAACP is right up there, as an enforcement arm of the DemoKlan.
You misspelled “Black Pampers”...
Kinda like unions - maybe necessary at their outset,
but now only interested in their self-perpetuation.
Good to read that article. The NBPP is basically the jihad wing of the Nation of Islam. 100% racist garbage.
Then what....? The black community wants so badly to be free of whites but have they considered what follows? I suspect not. What would their society look like? I’m betting it would look like current day Africa. Take a functioning prosperous society and drive it into the dirt. The freedoms they’ve enjoyed to now would be gone replaced w/ dictatorship and factional fighting. This is the best they can do for all the huffing and puffing about ‘whitey’.
Well didn’t Michelle Obama speak before the NAACP and say “you have to rachet it up!”? The Tea Party group I am involved with is headed by a black man, an Asian man, and a woman. How do you like that for diversity? The NAACP has a much less reason for existing. They did great work in the old civil rights days-—getting rid of Jim Crow etc. They are basically sitting on their laurels of past glories. Most of the problems the black community is facing today is not the result of whitey being a bigot. It’s not due to some cracker under a sheet. Their problems have to be solved from within-—not from government or from outsiders (mushy liberal social workers and community organizers). Thank God there are many (wish there were more) black folks who have not drunk the Kool Aid. If this country goes in the Sh*tter we are all done for—black white yellow and brown. That is what the Tea Party is about-—our country not going down the sewer like a big turd. The left wants to make us out to be bigots, Klan, white supremacists, whatever. The only thing the NAACP might be right on is that we are nationalists. WE LOVE OUR COUNTRY. Being a patriotic American is what the left despises most. They equate it first and foremost with Nazism. Plus because they have a globalist perspective, they just don’t get it. NAACP< please wake up. Don’t be a tool of the left. Too many of your rank and file are good people who have done great work in the past.
They probably think the law of gravity is racist. It’s like the boy who cried wolf. Who can take them seriously anymore?
Huh? If 51% of the nation were a bunch of racist crackers who wanted to repeal the 13th amendment, wouldn't "democracy" demand that it be repealed? (one of many, many reasons a Constitutionally limited republic is far superior to a democracy, but the Constitutional limits are being torn away every day by politicians in both parties). Democracy is people ruling through their direct votes, so how can their expressed opinions be a threat to democracy other than saying that someone else shouldn't be allowed to vote?
cites cases of what it calls "explicitly racist behavior," including "signs and posters intended to degrade people of color generally and President Barack Obama specifically."
When you "cite" a case, you give specifics as to what was said, who said it, along with when and where it was said. Hinted rumors are not a citiation of evidence. I want to know what those "signs" said and where and when they were shown. Then we can check if they were real and if they were, then were they brought by agent provocateurs from SEIU or other similar organizations. About the only thing I saw were some signs questioning his citizenship, which would be the same whether he was Kenyan or Austrian. The only "citation" I know of were accusations of racial epithets used at the DC rally, which by some Dracula-like magic, weren't able to be recorded on the numerous pieces of video and audio recording equipment brought by both sides of the argument (and maybe couldn't have been seen in a mirror either, for all that I know).
Wrong. The New Black Panthers are openly revolutionary communist. And the so-called "Nation of Islam" is a "Black Liberation" revolutionary communist front movement just like Wright's bogus church.
Louis Farrakhan, Santiago de Cuba, February, 1998:
"There is not a member of the black masses in the United States who is not proud of the example set by Cuba and its revolution, with Comandante Fidel at its head"
"Minister Farrakhan and his delegation met privately with President Fidel Castro of Cuba."

Re: Millions More Movement rally, Oct 15, 2005:
"Mao Tse Tung, throughout his long march to conquer China, had a billion people whose lives he had to transform. Many of them were victims of opium, drugs and prostitution, like we are. But Mao Tse Tung went to the cultural community and they accepted his idea. Then, through song, dance, poetry, drama, documentaries, movies and books, the idea of Mao Tse Tung became the idea of a billion people. China became a world power on the base of culture and the artistic community. If we had a Ministry of Art and Culture in every city, [we'd] create this movement [in the U.S.], we could say to our young people, What is the idea of the Time and are you reflecting that idea in your songs, dance and music?
We need a Ministry of Trade and Commerce. Do you think that a Millions More Movement should not be involved in the development of Africa, the Caribbean and Central America? ... we need a Ministry of Trade and Commerce that can link the struggle here with Africa and the Caribbean, Central and South America.

Farrakhan hails Obama as 'hope of entire world'
Louis Farrakhan, at the annual Saviours' Day celebration in Chicago, Feb. 25, 2008: "This young man is the hope of the entire world that America will change and be made better"..."If you look at Barack Obama's audiences and look at the effect of his words, those people are being transformed."
Video of Farrakhan's Obama endorsement at the above 'annual Saviours' Day celebration in Chicago, Feb. 25, 2008'. Hear him (Farrakhan) call Obama "The Messiah" And speak of "universal change":
"This president can be a transformative leader (he has that potential in my view), but only if he embraces and fights for a transformative agenda."--Sam Webb, Chairman Communist Party USA
Obama State of the Union: He got the ball rolling:
"We are 5 days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America"
Who gives a flying you know what about what this group thinks. If I was a Republican I would never give a speech and give any credence to this organization. They have power because the main stream news media gives them power. When they announce a boycott of something they have to have the outlets to scare company’s with and to be honest nobody even cares but yet they still have enough clout to scare advertisers.
Its a wholesale insult.
They are “deeply concerned” because they are getting their ass kicked.
I am hereby issuing a proclamation that the NAACP and the NBPP are both racist organizations and need to be run out of the country.
Then you’d feel right at home in Africa or the Middle East, Malik. Go ahead, escape oppression here while you’ve got the chance . . . lead the pilgrimage back to the motherlands.
I think they believe that fomenting racial animosity will solidify their support. It might accomplish that among their radical supporters, but it will certainly alienate supporters who are not radical and/or black.
The radical element within the Democratic Party represents a very tiny minority within that Party and it is chasing away more centrist Dims. And what about previously sympathetic (left leaning) Independents...aren't they also going to abandon the Party?
Bottom line: it seems that, in the Democratic Party, the patients have taken over the asylum! And Obama, instead of calling the men in white coats, has not only sided with the patients...he is revealing that he's the most dangerous psychopath in the hospital!
I have long been cured of white guilt. These fools think it will matter what they proclaim, it won’t make a bit of difference to most Americans who have gotten used to being called racist for disagreeing with the commie POS in the White House. It has become a meaningless accusation to most people who see through the BS.
How many white people belong to the NAACP?
I think that the NAACP is an irrelevant racist organization that should have no bearing on what conservatives say or do. They will still call us racists regardless of what we might do to appease them so ignore them and openly tell them to piss off.
It would be a popcorn popping event if these POS racists were to migrate back to Africa. Within a day of setting foot on Mother Africa’s soil most would be dead and the real Africans would have their possessions.
I have a black friend whose friend was going to Africa on a tour. She asked the other woman to bring her back a baggie of dirt from the mother country.
Since there are few things more racist than lying about another race, and since the NAACP is lying about white (in the NAACP’s perception) Tea partiers, the NAACP is a racist organization. Case closed.
The good people you describe need to leave the NAA(L)CP and join CORE.
The Tea Party has no problems nor issues with race. It’s mostly about big spending and big government. Poking fun at President Obama is fair play.
I think Obama and Co want to start a war.
That's no different than me asking an acquaintance visiting Ireland to bring me back a scrap of the Ould Sod! We can find plenty of real issues to call them on.
So what will violence accomplish? Zero. Let your enemy be violent, if they’re stupid enough to resort to that. You can win more politically by being non-violent.
If you’re gonna argue with the FEDS ...be prepared to be called a racist...and even charged with terrorism!!
