  • Watch: NAACP Bullies and Lies to Citizen Reporter at Press Conference On ‘Racism’ Within Tea Party

    10/21/2010 8:34:29 AM PDT · by blog.Eyeblast.tv · 8 replies
    In St. Louis, the NAACP held a press conference to condemn ‘racism within the Tea Party’ in which they were confronted by a citizen journalist about their applied double-standard on the issue. The interviewer questions them about racism within their ranks, particularly the aftermath of the beating of Kenneth Gladney, an African-American Tea Party participant in attendance at a Russ Carnahan town hall meeting who was attacked by two members of the SEIU. After the incident, the Missouri NAACP held a press conference in which they urged prosecutors to drop the assault charges against Gladney and referred to him as...

    Power: Show Me State voters overwhelmingly rejected the federal mandate to buy health insurance. Those who ignored the consent of the governed to pass ObamaCare take heed: The governed no longer consent. It is fitting that Missouri was the first state to hold a public referendum on ObamaCare, sending the notion that government can shred the Constitution to impose its will to a crushing defeat with three-quarters of the voters approving Proposition C. The measure would forbid the federal government from penalizing people who do not buy health insurance. A year ago, on Aug. 6, 2009, Kenneth Gladney, an African-American...

    Racial Politics: The NAACP, in crafting a resolution condemning racism in the Tea Party movement, seems to have forgotten those Black Panthers with clubs intimidating voters and wanting to kill white people. The "angry mobs" that reshaped the 2010 political landscape are angry white racist mobs, at least according to a resolution proposed by the NAACP at its annual convention this week in Kansas City, Mo. The resolution calls on "all people of good will to repudiate the racism of the Tea Parties, and to stand in opposition to its drive to push our country back to the pre-civil rights...

    Union Influence: The White House picks its most frequent visitor to sit on its deficit commission. He believes in big government, in big spending, and that the workers of the world should unite. What could go wrong? Computer security firms have been known to hire the best former hackers because they know best how to stop others like them. But the appointment of Andy Stern, president of the Service Employee International Union (SEIU), to a bipartisan commission to come up with ways to deal with the rapidly rising federal budget deficit is like having a serial arsonist organize Fire Prevention...

    Politics: With the Massachusetts Senate race in a dead heat, the Service Employees International Union makes a massive ad buy for a Democrat raising money from lobbyists. Sorry, Sen. Kerry, but the tea party's coming. Having received a tsunami warning, the purple shirts of the SEIU have sprung into action with a major ad buy trying to pull the Senate candidacy of Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley from the jaws of defeat. The buy size of $685,000, extracted from the union dues of not-always-willing workers, is one of the biggest of the election. The ads note that Republican Scott Brown...

    Less than three months after he had received a positive performance review from his superiors at the St. Louis County (Mo.) Department of Health, Keith Gladney was fired Dec. 23 from his job as an animal control officer. Thanks to information I obtained recently via the Missouri Sunshine Law (See this post for details), I learned his firing was something of an unusual -- albeit rare -- event.

Why wasn't it a hate crime? The beating of Kenneth Gladney by people wearing the purple shirts of the Service Employees International Union outside a Missouri health care town hall meeting three months ago met all the classic definitions of a hate crime.

    ST. LOUIS COUNTY • Six people arrested in August outside a raucous town hall meeting in south St. Louis County have been charged with misdemeanor ordinance violations. The six, including a Post-Dispatch reporter, had attended a demonstration outside an Aug. 6 forum called by U.S. Rep. Russ Carnahan, D-St. Louis, at Bernard Middle School in Mehlville to discuss health care reform. The charges were filed Tuesday by the St. Louis County counselor’s office, which prosecutes misdemeanor ordinance violations in unincorporated areas. All are to appear in court Jan. 21.

    On Aug. 6, the same day the White House told its supporters to “punch back twice as hard,” black conservative Kenneth Gladney found himself at the receiving end of several of those punches. He was beaten by a group of thugs from the Service Employees International Union after they found him selling conservative memorabilia outside Bernard Middle School, the site of of a South St. Louis County health care town hall meeting hosted by ultra-liberal Rep. Russ Carnahan (D-Mo.).

    To hear the White House and its Democratic congressional allies tell it, Americans who have vigorously questioned their representatives about Obamacare are nothing more than paid protesters organized by right-wing extremists and evil corporations determined to stop health care reform in its tracks. Earlier this week in a USA Today op-ed, for example, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-MD, described the protestors as "un-American." Over on the Senate side, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid called the dissenters "fear-mongers," and Reid's deputy, Sen. Dick Durbin, D-IL, told CNN the protests were "being orchestrated." And a...

While there, members of the SEIU, a union service providers (most of whom work for lazy welfare parasites) confronted him over the flags, called him the n-word and then mercilessly beat...

    The first round of protests against the Obama administration's chaotic and rapid-fire expansion of government came in the form of grass-roots "tea parties," which were predictably met with scorn by the Democrat-Media Complex (the natural coalition of the Democratic Party and the mainstream media.) CNN's Anderson Cooper and MSNBC's Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow led the charge, declaring concerned Americans "tea baggers," an allusion to an absurd sexual fetish beneath describing in a family newspaper. This attack on hundreds of thousands of people practicing their constitutional right to protest speaks volumes not just about the hardened sociopolitical leanings of America's...

His report was dutifully repeated by liberals looking to paint the violence as caused by critics of the administration. When I went looking for corroboration of his story, I found something quite different in this report from the Post-Dispatch: Kenneth Gladney, 38, a conservative activist from St. Louis, said he...
