    They just can't help themselves -- and their agenda-driven media enablers never, ever learn. This week, the NAACP made national front-page headlines with a local press release demanding that the feds investigate the hanging death of a local man in Port Gibson, Miss. Derrick Johnson, president of the NAACP Mississippi State Conference, immediately invoked the specter of a "hate crime." In response, the Obama Justice Department flooded the zone with a whopping 30 federal agents. News outlets grabbed the bait. USA Today asked ominously: "Was it a lynching?" The discovery of ex-con Otis Byrd's body swinging from a tree by...

    The Republican Party, says former Secretary of State Gen. Colin Powell, suffers from a “dark vein of intolerance.” We salute Powell’s service. He is a heavily decorated vet who served two tours of duty in Vietnam when things were hot and heavy over there. But General, care to name names? Who are these “intolerant” Republicans? Why engage in accusation by innuendo? By all means, name them, shame them – make them famous. In the meantime, while Powell composes his list, we compile some questions to some possible left-leaning “dark veins of intolerance”: What color was Rep. Maxine Waters’, D-Calif., “vein”...

    WASHINGTON – A plan that would dedicate two public high schools in suburban Washington to immigrants and second-generation students struggling with English is pitting black and Hispanic communities -– usually allies -- against one another. The Prince George’s County, Md., chapter of the NAACP is strongly opposing the plan -- which would take effect next school year, and cover about 800 students having English language difficulties -- claiming it will pull resources from other students and unfairly redistribute them to Hispanic students. Some critics go so far as to compare the plan to segregation. “It’s a slap in the face,”...

When you have two schools that are designed to deal with one group based around basically language as the criteria for the schools, than that’s a form of discrimination,” Bob Ross, president of the local NAACP, told WAMU.org. “It’s not about force, it’s not about choice, it’s about the law,” he said.

Thaddeus Murphy, 44, told federal agents he made the pipe bomb out of a shotgun shell and fireworks fuses, according to the documents. He said he was angry because the accountant wouldn't return his phone calls or give him back his tax records.

    Voters on Election Day chose Tim Scott as South Carolina’s U.S. senator. They also sent Utah’s Mia Love and Texas’s Will Hurd to the U.S. House of Representatives. Thus, the 114th Congress will include three black Republicans. This is a new high-water mark for black Americans. Too bad the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People couldn’t care less. (America’s oldest civil-rights organization still plasters that retrograde expression all over its logo and website.) NAACP has yet to congratulate, acknowledge, or even attack Scott, Love, and Hurd — now America’s three most powerful elected black Republicans. What you hear...

    Oppression has been a fact of life in America since Europeans first set foot on the continent, and for as long as there have been oppressors and victims, there have been a third group of people — those who stood by and did nothing — according to the guest speaker at the Indiana County NAACP Freedom Fund Banquet. Dr. challenged the audience even with the title of her talk, “Is There Justice For All?” on Saturday evening at the Indiana Holiday Inn. Native Americans were the first victims in the western world, she said. Victims of genocide. Then African-Americans, pressed...

    St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay is working in collaboration with the NAACP St. Louis Branch, the St. Louis Public Safety Department, and the Ethical Society of Police to recruit more minority police officers to the force. The City has been working on the initiative for months. However, the tragic shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson on, August 9, 2014, gave the plan a greater sense of urgency. Tonight on The Pulse of St. Louis, learn the qualifications needed to become a St. Louis police officer and how to help improve the relationship between law enforcement...
  • NAACP Ignores Mia Love, Tim Scott in Post-Election Report

    There is no mention of Tim Scott or Mia Love’s historic wins this election cycle in the statement. As you can see, it’s mostly about the Voting Rights Act.

    **SNIP** Putting his own spin on the election results that saw gains for conservative candidates throughout much of the nation, state NAACP President Rev. William Barber said Tillis' "narrow victory" was a repudiation of his policies, not a validation of them. Barber said there were widespread reports of voting problems – the State Board of Elections said the election ran rather smoothly – and the shortened early-voting period and the elimination of same-day registration affected thousands of North Carolina voters. "The magnitude of the problem may not be far from the margin of victory (for Tillis)," he said. The NAACP...

    LIFE NEWS ^ | 11/7/14 | Steven Ertelt
    The pro-abortion NAACP is coming under fire for completely ignoring the election of pro-life African-America candidates in Tuesday’s election. The venerable civil rights group is increasingly pushing its abortion agenda and has been embroiled in a lawsuit seeking to deny free speech rights to a prominent black pro-life advocate. The NAACP has also attempted to intimidate LifeNews into ceasing its reporting of its pro-abortion position and activities. Not only did pro-life candidates win huge election victories across the board last night, but black pro-life candidates won as well and helped undermine false criticism from the other side that somehow the...

    The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People on Thursday addressed the Nov. 4 midterm elections in a statement that failed to make any mention of the historic wins of Congresswoman-elect Mia Love, R-Utah, and Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C. Love is not only the first Haitian-American elected to Congress, but she is also the first African-American woman running as a Republican to be elected to Congress. Meanwhile, Sen. Scott’s victory on Tuesday makes him the first African-American senator to win an election in the South since the Reconstruction. Shortly after the NAACP released its Nov. 4 statement, which was...

    A spokesman for the Republican National Committee turned to Twitter Thursday evening to slam the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People for seemingly failing to congratulate Tim Scott and Mia Love on their historic midterm election wins Tuesday. “Can we take a moment to understand how the @NAACP didn’t congratulate the first black person ever elected to both the House and Senate?” RNC deputy press secretary Raffi Williams tweeted, adding that the group is “failing the black community by only supporting Dems.” can we take a moment to understand how the @NAACP didnt congratulate the first black person...

    Bridget Johnson November 6, 2014 The first African-American senator to be elected from the South since reconstruction made dual history Tuesday as Tim Scott (R-S.C.) won the seat to which he was appointed after Jim DeMint’s retirement. Scott is also the first black senator to be elected in both the House and the Senate. “South Carolina voters vote their values and their issues and not my complexion. This is a great sign for what’s happening throughout the south. But certainly, a fantastic sign for the evolution that has occurred in South Carolina,” Scott told MSNBC this morning. His win versus...
