What about the gay whale farmers?
She gave her speech at least a year ago, while accepting an award from the NAACP. Why didn’t they release this statement within minutes of her speech?
This might very well be the all-time Federal record for shortest elapsed time between the publication of the offense and the “resignation”.
Point taken. For the record she gave her speech on March 27 of this year. About four months ago.
Ah. So it is therefore impossible to be racist toward the President of the United States, who is the most powerful person in the world. Thanks, NAACP, good to know.
This way if they’re asked about it they can say, “That’s yesterday’s news. We’re moving on.”
No need to parse this to find (more) villains. The NAACP did the right thing. For once.
“What about the gay whale farmers?”
Jealous has made a proper response. That being said, the end paragraphs highlight that he wants more done for farmers who have been denied opportunities. I read that as reparations.
“Racism is about the abuse of power.”
Not any more. Racism is about abusing or denigrating someone because of the color of their skin; or promoting an organization that is race based. Like “La Raza” and the “National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.” These are both racist organizations. Period.
I read that as PORK
So they are appalled at the dismissal of the voter intimidation case in Philly, right? [ding! you are free to resume disbelief]
Moral equivocation at it’s finest. It is what liberals do best. Too bad we couldn’t market it in brush and paint...we’d have a nation of da Vinci’s.
Shouldn’t the rest of his Czars resign for hating Whites too?
Pray for America
“The reaction from many in the audience is disturbing. We will be looking into the behavior of NAACP representatives at this local event and take any appropriate action.”
Ok, now I bet you Mr. NAACP President, that if ANY Tea Partier got up and said anything remotely racist like that at a Tea Party, the audience would have acted different, more than likely the speaker would have been booed off the stage.
Whats worse a few racist signs in the audience from some lone racist, and idiots showing up to infiltrate their hateful desires at a tea party. Or a crowd of NAACP members nodding along, laughing, vocally agreeing, without a whimper of protest against a clearly racist speaker?
