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.

Nah, she just has several Emperor’s New Clothes-type “designers” who are all laughing behind her ill-adorned back. All the while ringing up huge “wardrobe” bills on whitey’s. . .err I mean the American Taxpayer’s dime.
“They will destroy themselves and the Democrat Party in the process.”
The USA will be a MUCH better country without these LIEberal/Socialist/Marxist/Fascist scumbags mucking things up!
“Can I please be black now?”
“Maybe we can sneak in, all undocumented like.”
Why not, Obama don’t be black, he jes be claimin’ to be black. Wright ain’t black, he jes be claimin’, worl’ be full o’ peeps jes claimin’, folks useta try passin’ fo’ white, now dey jes be claimin’ to be black, ain’t nobody wantin’ to be no cracka no mo. Jes git down wit de jive turkey tawk an’ tell ‘em all u black now.
If Navin can do it anyone can.
When aspiring to be black be sure to avoid the sort of affectation displayed by this rank amateur.
She talked about the Tea Party at the naaclp meeting.
It bothers me that she repeatedly refers to “the founders” but she is talking about the people who started the NAACP. I’ve never heard anyone use the phrase “the founders” in this way to refer to anyone other than the Founding Fathers.
My data came from the 2000 Census.
“Many of you probably grew up like I did — in a community that wasn’t rich, not even middle class..” “In these kind of strong African American communities, we went to neighborhood schools around the corner. So many of us had to walk to and from school every day, rain or shine. I know you’ve told that story. (Laughter.) And in Chicago, where I was raised, we did it in the dead of winter. (Laughter.) No shoes on our feet — it was hard, but we walked! (Applause.)”
Hardly humble: Michelle’s childhood home in Chicago
“Michelle was from a middle-class family,” confirmed one of her long-time friends, Angela Acree.
“She came from a regular family. They had a nice home. It wasn’t a mansion, but it was just fine. It was a decent neighbourhood.”
No one could pretend they were rich and it is true that her father, Frasier Robinson, spent some time as a maintenance worker for Chicago’s Department of Water Management.
However, he was a good deal more than the labourer that many seem to imagine.
Indeed, according to family friends, Michelle’s father was a volunteer organiser for the city’s Democratic Party, a by-word for machine politics in America, and his loyalty was rewarded with a well-paid engineering job at Chicago’s water plant. Even before overtime, he earned $42,686 - 25 per cent more than High School teachers at the time.
No, but my Daddy was. Maybe it's in my blood :-)
Check out Glenn Beck daily to learn what his research reveals. Check out his web site and watch his videos.
no thanks. I search by subject, not author.
As the saying goes...whatever.
Would it be possible to word a more generic, uninformative website/talkshow pimping post? I don't think so.
Post content, thoughts or ideas. Not advertisements.
If only that's what they wanted, but the radicals will never be satisfied
even if they have to kill millions. And that's usually how power trips end.
“The dead of winter, with no shoes.” I heard her and she was joking, that is why they laughed. It was just like my mother telling me how poor things were when she was a girl. Going to Europe during the depression, then coming back and having to eat oatmeal for a month until her first teachers pay check came in. I wanted to laught, but I didn’t. Mom didn’t have much sense of humor about herself.
You have a right to voice your opinion, and I have a right to voice my opinion.
But, "Check out Glenn Beck daily to learn what his research reveals. Check out his web site and watch his videos," is not an opinion, it's blog pimping.
I asked you for your opinion in my initial post in #114.
I asked you what you thought Beck had nailed and why.
You responded with a "Go read his blog. Listen to his show."
