NAACP blasts Santorum for targeting blacks in entitlement reform
cbs ^ | 1/4/2012 | Stephanie Condon

Posted on 01/04/2012 5:15:33 PM PST by tobyhill

The NAACP on Wednesday blasted Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum for recently singling out blacks for receiving federal benefits, calling his remarks "inaccurate and outrageous."

At a campaign stop in Sioux City, Iowa on Sunday, Santorum was talking about entitlement reform when he said, "I don't want to make black people's lives better by giving them somebody else's money; I want to give them the opportunity to go out and earn the money."

NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous said in a statement Wednesday that "Santorum's targeting of African Americans is inaccurate and outrageous, and lifts up old race-based stereotypes about public assistance."

As a racial percentage, there’s a higher percentage of blacks getting welfare than whites. It’s an accurate assessment, not an incorrect stereotype.

"I don't want to make black people's lives better by giving them somebody else's money..."

Some black commentator mentioned this quote (without the remainder of the quote, of course), and hautingly said "Santorum's gonna have to ANSWER for THAT!"

As a corrolary, people use inaccurate stereotypes to bring others down.

Using stereotypes that are accurate is just stating the obvious truth.

I agree with Santorum’s larger point, but he could have made the point better without singling out any particular group of people.

This is a lie by the NALCP. Santorum denies saying this and there is no evidence that he did say “Black” in that talk. More MSM smears created out of whole cloth for a Conservative candidate.

Benjamin Todd Jealous needs to get his hearing checked ASAP. Santorum never said the word, “blacks” in his remarks.

It's avoided in politically-correct discourse today, but the FACTS remain as the elephant in the room.

This statement is NOT true; typical of racist liberals, quoting a lie then painting their opponents with that lie and demanding that they apologize and grovel for “forgiveness” over their racism.

O’Reilly brought up the exact statement on his much-touted “interview” with Santorum just now. The candidate just came from NOWHERE to practically win Iowa, Bill. You self-praised the interview after the “talking points” memo coming out of the break. THAT was the WORST “interview” I have ever seen.

Go Rick!

Here comes that train rolling down the track, the bad mouthers getting started. It’s not surprising that the blacks start first their plantation owners, the Democrats told them to.

We will see between now and New Hampshire how Santorum holds up to the BS.Being close to the lead now he will catch the crap.The media of course is in on the mud throwing.

All things are racial to the left. John Conyers is threatening the Michigan governor with bringing in his personal friends Obama and Holder. He's already got Jesse Jackson singing "we shall overcome" and saying "This ain't Alabama"

"It just so happens that I have a closer relationship with the 44th President of the United States and his Attorney General, Eric Holder, than I have ever had with anybody in the Washington White House," he said, failing to mention the public disputes he has had with President Barack Obama.

Detroit town hall: Conyers vows to use White House relationships to fight state takeover

And in a related story

Conyers said the expanded law is "seriously flawed" and said it unfairly targets communities with large numbers of minority group members.

Huffingtonpost began to paint Santorum as a racist a few days ago. Rove was just on O’Reilly saying Santorum has a tendancy to say things that get him into trouble such as this. They also said Gingrich looked angry and defeated last night and “someone told Rove he looks enraged and might as well be donning a full ski mask and holding a chain saw in his hand...”

The problem is that we have been afraid to name names. Who do you think, for example, commits the majority of violent crime in NYC (at a rate nearly 3 times its percentage of the population)?

And....So....It....Begins.

The RACE CARD.

This is why they wanted Cain out so bad, because this is one of only two or three cards they have this year, and they would have been denied that one right off. And yet so many were hot to trot to run Cain off from the campaign trail, including so called conservatives here who thought it would not start on their own candidate(s).

Rove just repeated the lie that Santorum said the word “black” on O’Reilly a few mins ago. Rove said he can sometimes be offputting and judgmental. He said “give him his few moments of glory. He worked hard for this.”

You could totally see Rove’s agenda in his dismissal of Santorums near win on BOR. Levin called this creep out tonight for the failure he is. Where was Rove predicting the Santorum surge if he is such a genius? Rove is not only stupid, he is a hack.

Except he didn't. He said "lives, peoples' lives better" NOT "black peoples' lives". Listen to the video. It is crystal clear. Incredible fraud.

"They are trying to paint Santorum as a racist... I can tell you, I am really ticked."

I know that the libel/slander laws are notoriously difficult for public figures (like Santorum) to prevail on, but if ever there was a case of "actual malice" it seems like this would be it on CBS' part.

The Dems went after Santorum in PA when he ran for re-election and all the newspapers proclaimed that “Santorum is not for the poor”. The dumb voters of PA fell for the nonsense. If lies are broadcast wide enough and often enough, people believe the bs.

Personally, I don’t have any problem with Rick for making such a comment.

Today I watched an interview of Rick about this on CNN. Rick denied saying the word “black” on CNN.

Then I listened to the below video. I am truly hearing impaired, but to me, it sure sounds like he said “black”, and if that is the case, he has been trapped in a lie. If he did lie, the blacks are going to tear him into bite size pieces.

Perhaps you and others can hear this video better and come to a different conclusion as to what he said.

My only question is why are you still watching O'Reilly?

GRRRREAT question, BfloGuy! I stayed up late watching the Michigan game last night. I came home from work and laid down. The t.v. was on in the bedroom. My wife watches a lot of t.v. My 1 hour nap turned into a 3 hour nap. I woke up right at the end of Shep Smith and saw O'Reilly with his talking points memo. He caught my interest when he mentioned Santorum coming up. Long story short...(TMI)...I haven't watched O'Reilly in about 10-12 months and almost NO FOX in the evening since Beck left.

Which is totally meaningless in a discussion about a "word" that wasn't spoken. Don't give in to the Leftwingtards and their running dog lackeys in the MSM so easily.

They lie and you jump ~ ain't the way we are going to do this anymore. We run that lie back right down their throats and grab holt of it in the nether regions and grasping it in both hands we pull it back and forth like a saw until their guts spill out.

And that's just for starters!

Too many at the NAACP wear filters over their eyes that only let through the words "black", "tax" and "teabag". They see those words and they jump up and start shouting ~ sometimes running in circles.

There's nothing more to it.

The NAACP's job is to be a sort of Democrat party "Step 'n Fetchit"
