Tea Party Is Dealt The Race Card
IBD Editorials ^ | July 14, 2010 | Investors Business Daily staff

Posted on 07/13/2010 8:15:38 PM PDT by Kaslin

Racial Politics: The NAACP, in crafting a resolution condemning racism in the Tea Party movement, seems to have forgotten those Black Panthers with clubs intimidating voters and wanting to kill white people.

The "angry mobs" that reshaped the 2010 political landscape are angry white racist mobs, at least according to a resolution proposed by the NAACP at its annual convention this week in Kansas City, Mo.

The resolution calls on "all people of good will to repudiate the racism of the Tea Parties, and to stand in opposition to its drive to push our country back to the pre-civil rights era," said Anita Russell, head of the Kansas City chapter of the NAACP. "We need to realize it's really not about limited government." We suppose "tax cuts" is also code for racism.

The resolution comes after the late Sen. Robert C. Byrd, former grand kleagle of the Ku Klux Klan, was honored for his service to the nation that included leading the filibuster against the 1964 Civil Rights Act, supported in greater percentages by Republicans in the House and Senate.

It also comes as the Civil Rights Commission tries to unravel why the Obama administration refuses to prosecute members of the New Black Panther Party who in 2008 stood outside a Philadelphia polling place, dressed in paramilitary garb, one brandishing a nightstick, and saying things like, "You are about to be ruled by the black man, cracker!"

One of the Black Panthers involved, King Samir Shabazz, can be seen in a 2009 National Geographic documentary interview saying: "You want freedom? You're gonna have to kill some crackers! You're gonna have to kill some of their babies." Or at least those racists who opposed ObamaCare.

When logic fails and you are losing the argument always pull out the race card.

This has to be one of the first chapters of the progressive playbook.

Too many people on the left have too much invested in the power they gain from racial politics and understanding that our President spent his formative and adult years with these people it is simply logical that rather than “transcending racial politics” he is reverting back to his comfort zone. The race card is used to shift blame and responsibility for the failures of the dealer.

Sad.

How ironic is it that an all black “organization” considers an all-inclusive political group to be racist???

Just like Obozo, the NAACP is black first, then probably muslim, then Americans last.

Any criticism of the Obama plan is called racist, they have no proof, they just intend to scream and shout knowing the charges will stick.

When anyone on the left deals the race card, it is time to relax, for we have won.

They are out of substantive argument and debate; their policies are all failures and they know the reckless way they are governing is unsustainable and will not be tolerated.

The whooping and hollering is planned intimidation and terroist crap, designed to scare Americans into staying home...but if Americans were not exceptionally brave, we would have "stayed home" in England hundreds of years ago.

This on-premise terrorism will not stand. This not Europe and we will not look the other way when our freedoms are threatened...from foreign, or domestic.

There is no reason to be afraid, they are vastly outnumbered...here is just the TEA Party gathering from Searchlight, not D.C.:
tparty sl


We are NOT alone, and there is not reason to shudder because of one goon in a beret with a couple of bodyguards.

There has already been numerous attempts to discredit the TEA party movement, and a couple of MAD Hatters tried to take it down...and don't let me forget that stalwart organization, the "Coffee party" (more like a "coffee klatch' with their 15 members).

So, we'll be waiting for you in DC.

with 94% of negroes supporting Barack Obama, what difference does it make what the NAACP says? There is nothing any conservative could — or should — do in any way, shape, or form to impact on Obama’s negro support. So, forget about it.

The NAACP has outlived any reason for its existence. It should be disbanded.

Of course Michelle Obama fits right in with them because she and her husband are as hateful and biased as the idiots who run the organization.

It is tragic that ignorant black racists control an organization that used to legitimately work to address racial injustices of the past. Now the NAACP is a tool of the anti-American Muslim impostor who dirties the Oval Office with his unqualified, incompetent presence.

This is a fight that neither the lame stream nor the left want the tea party to push back on.
You see, normally the silent majority just ignores any jabs and lets things quiet down.
But answer me this: If Sarah Palin asks the Tea Party to push back on this, to actually make the media accountable on this, to make people feel OK about being on the right side of this, who do you think that helps?
NOT the lamestream and not the left, that’s who.
The woman is a genius, from Death Panels to helping Megyn Kelly get all in your face with Kirsten Powers ( with the Mama Grizzly well timed ad ).
They are playing right into HER timing and momentum by raising this craptacular issue now.
I was only going to head to DC once this summer, for 9-12, but NOW I am going to go to Glen Beck Restore Rally also on 8-28.
Thanks NAACP, you are moving a LOT more people than you think, you and your lamestream friends, and it is not going to help you a bit !

Anyone believe this wasn’t instigated by the White House?

Remember the 'almost riots' this Friday? Obama supplied the 'unruly crowd of white union workers', and made no move to keep the ANARCHISTS who ANNOUNCED they were going to be there, away.

He let the POLICE CHIEF deal with it.

The CHIEF knew he was being played. He ordered his troops to REFRAIN from the exact 'triggers' the Anarchists were attempting to set off.

So, it didn't get out of control, didn't get people killed, didn't cause the CHAOS they hoped for.

We owe the lives of many who would have been killed all across the country has this 'riot' not been controlled, and keep from absorbing the attention of the MEDIA.

The CHIEF of POLICE is a great American, and a great chief .

"Relax, We knew this would be a hot summer with a lot of mud slinging."

You think calling for blacks to kill crackers and their babies is "mud slinging"? It's not, it's a call to arms, and it's not isolated.

"November will be here, things will change."

Don't you think the Commies know what's coming, and are working on all sorts of underhanded and illegal ways to subvert the elections? Relax? I think not!

I hope they keep it up. It just shows how desperate they are and what liars they are. This mud they’re slingin’ ain’t stickin’. Everyone knows it’s b.s. And it’s going to be hard for them to start a race war when a large chunk of their race will be fighting as patriots.

Didn’t Andrew Breitbart offer $100,000 to ANYONE who had proof of the Tea Party either spitting on the delegation OR using the “N” epithet? I remember seeing video footage of Pelosi and her oversized gavel, striding through the crowd with members of the CBC trying to instigate a confrontation.

Nothing happened. No one’s collected.

And yet! There was some alligator-mouthed asshat from the NAACP on FOX today, making the claim that it actually happened!!

Facts mean nothing to these people. The truth to them is like Kryptonite to Superman.

I love this sign. Today Simpson and Bowles are talking about doing away with the mortgage tax credit. That would be about a $1,500 tax hike for me. And lots more for others. Talk about destroying the housing industry. Then again, it’s probably all part of their plan.

I really like Allen West....He was at a speakers meeting of some sort and the audiance asked about Islam...Allen patiently waited while ALL the others stumbled around trying to be politically correct. It was worth re-running the video just to see Allen sitting there waiting...

Then.. He spoke and blew everyone right out of the water! It was beautiful to behold I tell ya! Called it exactly as it is about Islam and batted that ball out of the park! Proud American....and I was proud of him...very good man!

So long as an outfit like the NAACP can call this, that, or whatever “racist”, and so long as Republicans, Tea Partiers, conservatives in general, or Freepers get in a snit about such accusations and respond “we’re NOT racists”, their strategy works, and works well.

... For the NAACP and the race hustlers, that is.

Only when Republicans, Tea Partiers, conservatives in general, and Freepers, too make the choice to simply ignore such accusations will we begin to see real progress in dealing with the disaster that “diversity” has dealt us.

It’s time for that open discussion of which Eric Holder claims we are “too cowardly” to engage.

For 50 years, the issue of race in America has been a one-sided argument. Nonwhites make one demand after another, and Euros cower. Any attempt to resist such demands is met with cannonades of the cry “racist” and “bigot”, and the Euros fall silent and back down.

It’s time for Euros to stop being “racists” — and also time for them to be unafraid to speak of what might be called [for lack of a better term] “race realism”.

They may brand me “racist” if they wish, in an attempt to shut me up.

I no longer care. Then they’ll call me a “bigot”, a “hater”, a “xenophobe”, a this or a that. It will make no difference.

I will keep thinking what I think, saying what I say, and doing what I do without regard to such accusations.

I will no longer permit myself to feel “guilty” because what I think, say, or do might “offend” some persons, particularly “persons of color”.

When Euros are willing to do this — and do it openly — perhaps then we will see a true discussion of race and its implications in this society.

But not until then.

Don’t like the NAACP’s accusation? Well, I don’t, either. But the LAST thing to do is come on with something like “I’m _not_ a racist”. If you do that, you’ve let THEM define the argument. And you’ve already lost.

I and many others knew, even a year ago when this grassroots, patriotic, anti-Obama movement got off the ground, that this day would eventually come. It would come near the end of the defeat of those opposing Tea Partyism, for they would be very desperate indeed and this would be their last, pathetic stone to throw, before going down for the count.

We have them freaked, folks. They are up against a wall and have nothing else to do but strike out emotionally and in a final explosion of frustration over their losing the battle.

"Race Card" is ALL they have left!! ;-)
