Black Conservatives Ask the NAACP to Condemn Progressive Racism at the Orlando Annual Convention


FreedomWorks
July 12, 2013


FreedomWorks Outreach Director Deneen Borelli and Senior Fellow Rev. CL Bryant will attend the NAACP Annual Convention in Orlando on Sunday, July14th and Monday, July 15th before the keynote speeches to ask the NAACP to publicly denounce the racial attacks against black conservatives.

Reverend CL Bryant commented, “As a former NAACP branch president in Garland, Texas, I was punished for my outspoken belief that as a Baptist preacher, my rights come from God, not the government. The NAACP has strayed from the principles of empowerment and opportunity. We are here to remind the leadership and the membership that the NAACP stands for the ‘advancement of colored people,’ not the ‘advancement of colored progressives.’”

FreedomWorks Outreach Director Deneen Borelli commented, “As a black conservative, I’ve been attacked for communicating my values of individual liberty and economic opportunity for all Americans. The NAACP refuses to defend my right to express my views, despite my numerous attempts to contact their headquarters. Sadly, this once venerable civil rights organization has morphed into a political arm of the progressive movement, and it reserves its advocacy for left-wing causes and individuals. We are asking the NAACP to end their selective representation of black victims of racial discrimination, and to provide a voice for black conservatives to speak at their events.”

The 104th NAACP Annual Convention will be held at the Orange County Convention Center, 9800 International Drive, Orlando, FL 32819.

On Monday evening from 6-10pm ET, FreedomWorks will host a free screening of Rev. CL Bryant’s documentary, Runaway Slave, for attendees of the NAACP Convention followed by Q&A for those who want to learn more about the discrimination against black conservatives. The screening will take place at the Adair room of the Westin Orlando Universal Blvd Hotel (across the street from the Convention Center), 9501 Universal Boulevard, Orlando, FL 32819.

I don’t think the National Association for the Advancement of Communist Precepts is going to pay heed to black conservatives.

NAACP was hijacked by the communist party long ago.

If rights "come from government" then the government can take them away quite arbitrarily without any explanation.

So often one can tell who is a conservative by the look of them. I know it isn’t always the case, but it holds true very often.

If the NAACP has given these two a platform in which to speak, it’s only because they want the opportunity to heap scorn at them. With the atmosphere post-Zimmerman, they’ll be lucky if they get out of Orlando unscathed.

Its extremely depressing that the main source of bigotry - even against humans that looking their members - is the NAACP. What a sad, sad corrupted institution it has become since its founding in the Interest of all men and women in the USA of African descent.

Also to present the appearance that they're living up to their mission statement and acting in a non-partisan way. Giving stage time to a couple token Black Conservatives (which is what the NAACP considers them) helps in deterring/countering any challenges to their tax-exempt status.

Applaud her appeal to this communist organization but any organization which by its very name is racist, tries to address racial issues, it is like an abortionist trying to abort only pro-life people.

I remember seeing her a number of times when I thought she was quite attractive. It actually made me sad when I saw what she eventually turned into.

Somewhere along the way, she lost her dignity, at the very least for moments in time, perhaps for all time.

re: “Applaud her appeal to this communist organization but any organization which by its very name is racist, tries to address racial issues, it is like an abortionist trying to abort only pro-life people.”

I, too, am proud of her and the pastor’s courage to speak so truthfully in front of a hostile crowd. I hope some of those who listen will change their hearts toward the truth.

However, I think we need to qualify a bit your comment that the NAACP is merely a “communist organization and “racist by its very name”.

Like many organizations founded long ago, such as several well-known Ivy-League colleges, some of whose foundings were Christian or conservative, many have left their original goals and missions and gone off the deep end into Marxism.

This is also true of the NAACP. In its early years, it was often connected with the Republican party because Republicans were for equality and freedom for all American citizens. I’m not saying it was sponsored by Republicans, far from it, but it wasn’t based on “communism” or “marxism” either. The NAACP never espoused communism in its founding. In fact, here is their mission statement as given in 1911:

“To promote equality of rights and to eradicate caste or race prejudice among the citizens of the United States; to advance the interest of colored citizens; to secure for them impartial suffrage; and to increase their opportunities for securing justice in the courts, education for the children, employment according to their ability and complete equality before law.”

I think we would have to agree that blacks, in 1911, were not fairly treated nation-wide in the “courts, education, employment according to their ability” - especially in the South.

However, you are absolutely correct that this once good organization is now gone completely left-wing. This occurred during the late 1960’s and into the 1970’s. So, your claim about them being a communist organization and racist has been true since the mid-1970’s.

Barring a miracle, I don’t see the NAACP changing back to its original mission, which is what these two brave black conservatives are basically asking this group to do.

These black conservatives should start their own organization and stop paying dues to the NAALCP.

When I saw some of the pictures of her popping up, I had to go back and see if I was remembering the same person. Sadly, I was.

You have to wonder if her outlook on life took that big a swing as well. I wouldn’t be surprised.

Hillary Clinton was a Goldwater girl in the 60s. She met the mentor that turned her, in her Senior (possibly junior) year of high school. He was an inner city Lefty religious leader.

No, they redrew the lines more like they had been for a long time. I’ve been back in the GA 6th, which is Newt’s old district, for a good while now. It is now held by Dr. Tom Price, who is pretty darn good.

It was really ugly at the time, going to bed one night represented by Newt, waking up represented by Jihad Cyndy.

It is 2013. We have a black president. We have copious number of blacks in government positions and yet the bitching continues when not a single one of them were ever a slave but I sure have been a slave with part of my earnings stolen and given to the lazy gimmie, gimmie, people.

If we had a National Association for the Advancement of White People (which it appears we now need) the NAACP and KWAT would have their Grand Wizards of Sharpton, Jackson, FairyCon, Holder, Ovomit DEMANDING using every branch of government to audit them, profile them, monitor their communications,...

When, in the USA ANY organization defines itself by race and calls or in actuality demands racial discrimination, even if the lying wordsmiths on the left call it Affirmative Action, they are BY DEFINITION a RACIST organization.

You name the group and at sometime in history that group has been the target of some sort of oppression. Blacks, thanks 100% to the likes of the NAACP and the KWAT prefer to play the victim card and try to extort money and power based on White guilt.

Well no more! They had their chance and showed exactly how they will rule when given power. We have seen the Just-Us department turn into a race based prosecution tool. We have seen what they did to Detroit and many, many inner cities.

Millions of minorities have come here, some not English speaking or not even using the same alphabet but somehow, they became part of our fabric and worked their way up the system.

Not so for blacks, as again, thanks to the NAACP and the KWAT they prefer to sit back and see what they can steal from the producers using government as their thief.

Either they are equal or not. Why is this the only group still fighting when others have succeeded. Maybe it is not whites, or Hispanics as so many blacks think Hispanics are moving ahead and leaving blacks behind.

I thank Ovomit and his progressive communists in the media and NAACP and others for giving us such an example of how vile this country will be under their rule.

Maybe more will realize their white guilt is misplaced and maybe Hispanics will reevaluate their love affair with the communist left in the democrat party as they should see democrats are not their friend but their plantation oppressor.

Hopefully, Hispanics will take a look at how well big, central planning, socialist, government took care of the American Indian. Just a plantation by a different name.

NAACP= Nothing but Afro-American Communist Progressives.
