He gets out of acknowledging her stupid comments by stating that there are hundreds of local fund raisers each year. My suggestion to Jealous is this: Demand a copy of the tapes of each dinner to be audited by BREITBART first. If more instances are found, and are each in turn condemned, then I will be more receptive to apologies by Jealous.
And what about some of the speakers/”honored” guests they’ve had over the years, aside from this bitch?
Has Calypso Louie addressed them? “Rev.” Wright? What’s the NAACP’s position on racial quotas (i.e. profiling against whites and Asians)?
I bet we could put together a pretty long list of their transgressions.
"Is that a harpoon in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?"
...especially if it's a sperm whale.
One wonders why a banquet room full of people so keenly attuned to racism as naacp members did not itself bring this matter to the attention of Ms Sherrod's employers.
One only wonders briefly, though.
|Are you already a monthly donor to Free Republic? Do you think you've already done enough? Well, I used to feel the same way until I realized the FReep-a-thons were taking longer and longer.
If each monthly contributor kicked in an additional, one-time donation of $20.00, this FReep-a-thon could be over!
This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about this, because it was Everybody's job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.
Or are you waiting for Somebody Else to do what Everybody should?
Is he talking about indigo, orange and collard greens farmers?
Now I'm holding my breath to see if the NAACP takes on the entire Department of Justice and Attorney General Holder for their failure to criminally prosecute racially based voter intimidation.
The NAACP was forced to do the right thing for once. They did not apologize so willingly. This is significant because as Breitbart said, he has samples (plural) of NAACP racism, and they know it. They learned from the Acorn example, and if Breitbart is saving the best for last, this could get interesting. It is tough for the media to ignore this whole thing now that this racist USDA employee has been fired AND the NAACP has issued an apology. I would bet there is more coming.
There are also hundreds of tea parties, he probably doesn’t care to take that into an account.
If Breitbart has more, I hope he continues release them.
Speak truth to power.
There was no objection on the part of the NAACP then, they did not discreetly or publicly strip her of the award following her performance then. They have not said they will take back the award now. I am glad that the NAACP acted swiftly when outed but why must they be outed before they decry the comments as inappropriate?
So, according to their own standards this is a ‘win’ for Breitbart? After all the Tea Party Express/Federation thing was a ‘win’ for the NAACP, or so they say.
Correct! One incident from one Tea Party participant makes all Tea Party members racist. There have already been numerous statements by black “leaders” which have been far more incendiary that the satire by Mark Williams. Our country will mature when there is uniform outrage across all racial lines whenever black “leaders” go racist in their language.
OK! Where do I send the cleaning bill for this keyboard, monitor and and carpeting! Thank God I am working at home these days. If I had been in an office I would have sprayed coffee on half the staff.
This was a huge kick in the nuts to the NAACP. Jealous is in a quandary. He can have an investigation and genuinely condemn other attacks on whites, or he can clam up. I am betting he will clam up. Better that way. Any further attacks on the Tea Party become impotent.
Meanwhile, they cheered her "hate whitey" speech and then presented her with an award immediately afterward.
Very good points. This isn’t over yet.
