There's good news and bad news from the NAACP convention. The good news is that the NAACP can't even remember what racism is anymore. The bad news is that hasn't stopped them from offering up a resolution attacking the Tea Party movement as "harboring racist elements that are a threat to our democracy".
Excuse us for a moment while we scream and pound our heads on the desk.
BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM!
Okay, we're back now.
There has only been one incident of racial violence involving the Tea Party movement. It happened when a black man was called the "n-word" and beaten badly enough to put him in a wheelchair. But unfortunately for the NAACP's narrative, the black man was a Tea Party supporter...and the people who insulted and beat him were goons sent by the pro-democrat SEIU. The NAACP did nothing about it.
But surely the NAACP cares about issues like voter intimidation, right? For instance, the recent case in which a man shouted racial epithets and threatened voters with a nightstick at a polling place. But wait - the man, King Samir Shabazz, was a New Black Panther and despite his calls for blacks to rise up and "kill cracker babies," the NAACP sent letters to the Department of Justice to dismiss his case. Which is, in fact, what happened.
In making their false and defamatory statement against the Tea Party movement, the NAACP is not only practicing the worst kind of racial divisiveness, but also attacking the many brave, black participants in the movement and attempting to silence their voices.
We'd like to say more, but this topic leaves us sad and exhausted. So we'll just suggest that it's time for the NAACP to change their initials to WTF and call it a day.
