Posted on 07/12/2010 7:11:32 PM PDT by Scythian
First Lady Michelle Obama brought renewed energy to the NAACP today, delivering the keynote speech at the annual convention one day before the nation's largest civil rights group is expected to condemn what it calls racist elements in the Tea Party movement.
The nation's largest and oldest civil rights organization will vote on the resolution Tuesday during its annual convention in Kansas City, Mo.
In her speech, the first lady focused on the issue of childhood obesity and her "Let's Move" initiative, but outside of her remarks, anti-Tea Party activism has been a key focus of the gathering, which conservative leaders say is driven solely by a political agenda.
Tea Party members have used "racial epithets," have verbally abused black members of Congress and threatened them, and protestors have engaged in "explicitly racist behavior" and "displayed signs and posters intended to degrade people of color generally and President Barack Obama specifically," according to the proposed resolution.

Thanks for the kind words and understanding, Kelly.
Being a black conservative is an interesting life, but I’m used to it. I’ve been an “odd man out” ever since I was a kid. I didn’t know that I was a conservative then, but I was, and suffered the envy, jealousy, and ostracizing even then from my black peers.
You’re right that I’m a part of the functioning segment of America. Once I got old enough to make my own choices, I removed myself from every group and individual in my sphere that was self-defeating, or stuck on negativity. That alone enabled me to have a much better life experience than many of my peers.
There’s a sickness in the black community that runs deep. I know it intimately, but throughout my life I have refused to succumb to it. It’s always been a matter of choice to me, as it is for any black person. Why make a conscious choice to be part of a group that chooses to be disabled, when you can choose to be part of the America that lives out its hopes and dreams?
Seems simple enough to me, but you’d be amazed how complex an issue it is for some black people. No black person has to individuate themselves from the rest of their countrymen. Whatever wall they perceive between themselves and other Americans is totally self-created. It doesn’t exist anywhere else.
Appreciate that, G, but I'm just another American, as far as I'm concerned. I love America. Always have, and always will.
Outstanding advice for anyone, and for young people especially.
Tea Party members have used “racial epithets,” have verbally abused black members of Congress and threatened them, and protestors have engaged in “explicitly racist behavior” and “displayed signs and posters intended to degrade people of color generally ....”
You’re very welcome!
Doesn't he say that about each episode? ;)
How transparent is this? This all happens after the Black Panther Party is exposed as a bunch of racist radicals.
Are Tim Scott, Nikki Haley and Star Parker aware that the tea party is racist?
The NAACP is a pathetic anachronism.....and they just can’t STAND it.
Ms. Obama should be sued for slander. She should be made to show proof of her accusations. They are hate speech.
“Tea Party members have used “racial epithets,” have verbally abused black members of Congress and threatened them, and protestors have engaged in “explicitly racist behavior” and “displayed signs and posters intended to degrade people of color generally and President Barack Obama specifically,” according to the proposed resolution.”
Show us the facts........ I thought not.
Without facts, it’s nothing more than agitprop.
NAACP = National Association Against Cracka People.
I wonder how Hussein’s civilian army is coming along.
Interesting that Michelle is suddenly so concerned about the “founders”. Picking up on a little teaparty talk to confuse the uninformed, while denouncing at the same time. Somebody please call her out.
They need to “PROVE IT”!
Otherwise, this is nothing more than political race-baiting.
Racist - An Orwellian word that means squat. It is used as a slur to keep whites in thier place an constantly ignores that blacks, Hispanics and all "people of color" are 'racist'
Seriously? Why does ANYONE give a damn what a race group or those that support these anti white race groups says about 'racism' and 'racist'? How about GFY or ignoring it altogether? It is like being concerned that Bernie Madoff called you a thief.
All this hypocritical, one way race crap does nothing but have way too many on the right running around in circles. Wasting time and energy.
Not one person has ever tried to stop anyone from attending or participating. That the overwhelming majority of blacks choose to not be involved says way more about them then the Tea Party. Either you agree with us or you don't but all these machinations over race is cowardly on the right and just what the Marxist want.
This is where the rubber meets the road and it also shows how truly powerful Marxist PC has become in controlling the populous and ultimately in destroying our nation.

A race war won't end well for Blacks
Okay, you’re a racist.
If there are LEGITIMATE elections in November 2012 and THE 1 gets the boot, imagine the cries of racism that will ensue. You got rid of the black guy,(well, half black anyway). What a racist country it is when you can’t re-elect a black to the office of POTUS, even if there is corruption with ACORN, SEIU, and other thug organizations. THE 1 is insuring that no blacks will be considered for the office of POTUS for the next century or longer. He had his shot and blew it.
WOW this woman has no fashion sense or class at all.
what is she wearing now , a dressing gown?
She herself has shown bitterness to whites and this country, the NAACP has used words like uncle Tom, Oreo etc.
The NAACP has used racist language towards whites.
The NAACP has done nothing but used racial politics to separate people.
This admin has been the most racist admin in some time and is now using the DOJ to push their racist politics.
AND YET THE MEDIA PLAY THEIR RACIST DISGUSTING GAME
NOTICE TO MEDIA, BLACKS CAN BE RACIST TOO, JUST LOOK AT THIS ADMIN FOR A START
a race war they will lose if they really truly want one
Any chance you’re from Missouri?
Maybe they are planting the seeds for race riots. The dept of justice has sent the message that they won’t prosecute certain races. So, what the hell. The obamabots would love nothing better than riots. Then they can step in to restore “order”. It would give them another crisis not to be wasted. These folks are diabolical.
The Great Martin Luther King is rolling over in his grave.
If I hear anyon e saying they think my area is not diverse or my town is not diverse or they wish it was more diverse then I just tell them that around here we look at people as people and not by color, race etc.
it ios racist looking at people by their race and diversity is code word for the far elft for using their racial politics.
the far left through out history have been racism tpo further their agenda .
it’s about time more people told these far left racists and hate mongers the truth as of right now they call people names so thyey can ignore their own disgusting bigotry, whtehr that is class, race, religion etc
there will be no fair elections in 2012, this year and the last one was not fair.
Even here in Florida we had over 100,000 fraud votes just from GA, OH and who had all gone to obama.
then include the snow bird vote who use their vacation addresses in order to vote here,
college kids who vote here and then back in their own state.
add ACRON, and then the illegals and there is no way he won this state.
for every 10 people I know I know only 1 person who voted for obama.
hell he should not have even won against Hillary let alone the white house.
We have racists/ bigots, commies, Marxists and socialists in power right now and all of them hate how America is a white Christian country.
call these far left haters out and tell your friends, work associates, neighbors etc about what is going on and hown the media are hiding the truth
She has the most gawd-awful clothes I’ve ever seen. I’m sure she pays a fortune for them, too.
The only reason it still exists is because it gives people, who would otherwise be normal people, a chance to be important. That’s how Jim Jones’ supporters were. If he hadn’t recruited them, they would still be normal people.
The NAACP works the same way.
Aw, don't feel bad for me. I'm not suffering. I don't put myself in a position to be ostracized or mistreated. I left anti-America a long time ago.
Can't remember it exactly, but it went something like, “I'm not impressed with your opinion of me, (or your comments.)
Does anyone have any good responses to being called a
“racist?” Something sharp, direct that would put a person in their place? Something to deflate the power that a race-baiter thinks they hold exclusively?
Yeah, I'd say so.
[Article] Tea Party members have used "racial epithets," have verbally abused black members of Congress and threatened them, and protestors have engaged in "explicitly racist behavior" and "displayed signs and posters intended to degrade people of color generally and President Barack Obama specifically," according to the proposed resolution.
At least they know who they want to hate and lie about.
"THEM" -- them crackas.
Hell, we're the best friends they ever had -- and that includes the cousins who sold their great-great grandaddies to the Arabs and Portuguese.
Just wish NAALCP would say something occasionally about those cracka-talking Shabazzes and Quanells and Wallace LaFard X Shazzams.
Hell, I haven't heard yet an apology for "Hymietown" -- did I miss that?
A magazine article I saw online (maybe here on FR) had the white population down to ~60% already .... I'd seen 67% previously.
So what's the right number? Where did your figure come from?
Andrew Breitbart still has the $100 large that he offered for a video capture of the alleged "epithet"-hurling during the infamous Rat Victory Lap at the Capitol.
He's so confident now that he'll have no takers, that he's now offering the dough for the archive of Ezra Klein's little hugger-mugger East Coast Liberal Journalist e-mail listserv that Tucker Carlson got a few juicy chunks from, that show Rat journalists coordinating Message in their private virtual war room.

"The raised fist (also known as the clenched fist) is a salute and logo most often used by left-wing activists, such as: Marxists, anarchists, socialists, communists, pacifists, trade unionists, and black nationalists. The raised fist is usually regarded as an expression of solidarity, strength or defiance."

A common Anarcho-Syndicalist flag.
In the early 20th century, anarcho-syndicalism arose as a distinct school of thought within anarchism. With greater focus on the labour movement than previous forms of anarchism, syndicalism posits radical trade unions as a potential force for revolutionary social change, replacing capitalism and the state with a new society, democratically self-managed by the workers.
Anarcho-syndicalists seek to abolish the wage system and private ownership of the means of production, which they believe lead to class divisions. Important principles include workers' solidarity, direct action (such as general strikes and workplace recuperations), and workers' self-management. This is compatible with other branches of anarchism, and anarcho-syndicalists often subscribe to anarchist communist or collectivist anarchist economic systems. Its advocates propose labour organization as a means to create the foundations of a non-hierarchical anarchist society within the current system and bring about social revolution.

"We believe in a Black first philosophy and a Black Liberation Theology."
SEAN HANNITY: But Reverend Jeremiah Wright is not backing down and has not for years and in his strong stance on the teaching of black liberation theology is nothing new. He had the same things to say last spring when he appeared on "Hannity & Colmes:"
WRIGHT: If you're not going to talk about theology in context, if you're not going to talk about liberation theology that came out of the '60s, systematized black liberation theology that started with Jim Cone in 1968 and the writings of Cone and the writings of Dwight Hopkins and the writings of womynist theologians and Asian theologians and Hispanic theologians, then you can't talk about the black value system.
HANNITY: But I'm a reverend
WRIGHT: Do you know liberation theology, sir?
"Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal".--James (Jim) Cone,

Oh geez, I had a bad feeling about Obama being bad, knew he was bad, observed he was bad, and now I observe he and his wife are worse than bad; they’re just driving wedges between everyone and everything American.
That’s one of her better looking dresses. But notice she had to put on junky, cheap looking Ubangi-style bangle bracelets with the refined, garden-party style dress instead of just a simple string of pearls or something appropriate and dignified.
The thumbs-up and facial expression make her look like a dyke linebacker.
Lighting a powderkeg they are going to come to regret. Political idiots.
I cannot believe that the two most ignorant people in America occupy the White House. God help us.
I don't know anyone on the right who didn't make the same observations about Obama during the election. Any fool should have been able to see what and who he was, but sadly, over half our nation closed their eyes and "believed".
We are all now reaping what those fools have sown.
True. I think anyone with a 1/2 way logical brain knew this was going to be a tough four years. Sad part is we didn’t need a nefarious dork to,”stay the course.” Right now it looks more like the verge of a total meltdown and last thing we need is idiots fueling the fire but that’s exactly what the WH is doing.
Oops that came out wrong , should read:
....we didn’t need a nefarious dork but someone who could actually,” stay the course” the next four years until things settle....
