This entire episode with the NAACP calling out Tea Party nation for alleged racism is so pathetic and depressing, and I’ve tried to avoid it. I’m always hesitant about these so-called advocacy groups like the NAACP and the like; they’re so politically entrenched in the Democratic party that you have to be completely blind to their obviously biased inclinations. The NAACP doesn’t advocate the advancement of colored people–they advocate the advancement of left-leaning Democratic colored people. Conservative colored people need not apply.
In its usual spineless way, the mainstream media picked up on the meme, booking their NAACP guests that pushed the whole storyline–all of it was conjecture and subjective.
Breitbart states the obvious:
The NAACP and the Congressional Black Caucus do not want racial harmony. They want political victory, and the race card is their Stradivarius.
Three months later, the NAACP decided to “double-down” on the fabricated “”Tea Party/racism” narrative and has the gall to include the disproved Capitol Hill “N Word” non-incident as their formal condemnation of the Tea Party. Simply by snapping its figures, the mainstream media again parroted lies. The Tea Party was guilty until it proved itself innocent. A most un-American and, dare I say, culturally Marxist construct.
In fact, it’s worse. The media that provided the left a platform to accuse the Tea Party, all the while refusing to air any exculpatory evidence. Again, the mainstream media inserts itself as the number one weapon in the progressive weapons stash. Political correctness, as the Duke Lacrosse case exemplified, trumps all in PC America and her afflicted media.
The NAACP which has transformed from a civil rights group to a propaganda arm of the Democratic Party and social-justice politics, supports a new America that relies less on individualism, entrepreneurialism and American grit, but instead giddily embraces, the un-American notion of unaccountability and government dependence.
He then goes on to post video proof of the disturbing and ugly racism inherent in the race-baiting world of progressive liberalism.
Meet Shirley Sherrod:
We are in possession of a video from in which Shirley Sherrod, USDA Georgia Director of Rural Development, speaks at the NAACP Freedom Fund dinner in Georgia. In her meandering speech to what appears to be an all-black audience, this federally appointed executive bureaucrat lays out in stark detail, that her federal duties are managed through the prism of race and class distinctions.
[…]Sherrod describes how she racially discriminates against a white farmer. She describes how she is torn over how much she will choose to help him. And, she admits that she doesn’t do everything she can for him, because he is white. Eventually, her basic humanity informs that this white man is poor and needs help. But she decides that he should get help from “one of his own kind”. She refers him to a white lawyer.
The second video is just as disturbing as Sherrod more or less encourages black people to get government jobs because they won’t get laid off. Racist stereotypes anyone?
Here are the videos:
My post is somewhat sloppy, because I’m writing after having read Breitbart’s piece twice, and words can’t explain how frustrating and insane all of this is. For decades, the Democrats have been the party of race-baiting, playing the race card for political purposes and to spew their own brand of hate. Add in a complicit media, and we’re on a course for disaster.
Breitbart rightfully lauds the Tea Party, and its importance in counterbalancing and fighting the hate.
UPDATE. The racist has resigned.
