Skip to comments.Tea Party Is Dealt The Race Card
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.

Here is a video about one of the many times the NAACP was not there for the black people:
This guy, too:
That about sums it up
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.
Relax, We knew this would be a hot summer with a lot of mud slinging. November will be here, things will change.
the NAACP is just setting the stage for a possible election of someone other than the current Prez. their more concerned about spin than facts.
what color is not?
Don’t pick it up.
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.
Anyone believe this wasn’t instigated by the White House?
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.
Far from epitomizing MLK’s dream, Obama is just making it easier to see the double standard applied to race.
LIBs/DIMs...moonbat asshats all. You are outnumbered by normal people and good American citizens. The TEA party has your number. All of you. See you in November, you has been freaks.
Some of these people are ignorant, some are simply evil and some are both.
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.
Yeah... but you're 'black', not 'Black'.
More like, When logic fails and you are losing the argument, always pull out the billy club.
SCREW’EM! I’M FROM TEXAS
Liberals crying Race is like a Hooker crying Rape.
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 !
Please ... this is the racist NAACP that we're talking about. It's not "negroes", it's "colored people" dontcha know?
Of course it was...probably typed and hand delievered by Michelle when she spoke earlier!
Who cares what this joke of an outfit does??
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 .
“NAACP tries to cut the deck, but cuts the cheese.”
You sound like you need a song to cheer you.
>> what difference does it make
Conservatives should not assume its platform is unattractive to those in the Black community.
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!
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
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.
Please read tag line below.
Since 90% of today’s racists are liberals, the NAACP is compelled to create false charges in a desperate attempt for relevancy.
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!
Well if the race card was played this early makes one wonder what’s coming....it isn’t going to be pretty no easy to take...count on it.
But what I am loving is now that he’s played it I have already seen some of the reactions...people aren’t buying it...in fact they are calling it foul.
Kudos to this Chief! Good job!
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.
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!! ;-)
Best thing to do is ignore them.Anything else is messing with TARBABY.Just a commie organization and nothing more.
