Obama, NAACP Condemn Racist Extremism (Update: Herman Cain Responds)

Soooo…in the same week the NAACP accuses the tea party movement of racism Obama accuses al Qaeda of racism…

A little heavy handed isn’t it, guys?

The race obsession of the Obama administration is a sight to behold.

Ace has more, here.

Herman Cain’s Response to NAACP Accusation of Racism by Tea Party People

What!

My reaction to the idea of the NAACP declaring the citizen movement known as the Tea Party as racist is ridiculous. I am Black. I have spoken at over twenty rallies and conferences. I have talked directly with hundreds of tea party activists, and have received hundreds of calls from activists to my nightly radio show. Tea Party people are patriots, who want the federal government to stop the spending, stop the legislative abuse, stop the tax increases and start adhering to the Constitution.

It is unfortunate that a once relevant and impactful organization is looking for relevance in the wrong place, namely, race. It should be about unity instead of divisiveness.

I have been called a sell-out, an Uncle Tom and shameless because I disagree with this President’s policies.  Those who are calling me those names have probably never been to a Tea Party event, and I doubt officials of the NAACP have attended an event either. Those that would like to join the name calling parade should save themselves some time. In my grandfather’s vernacular, “I does not care!”

This President ran on a campaign of hope and change, but his change is not working … over 4 million Americans lost jobs in 2009, the unemployment rate has gone from 7.6% in January 2009 to 9.5% in June 2010, the unemployment rate for Black Americans is over 15% and not getting better, and the national debt has increased exponentially to over $13 trillion since January 2009.

Tea Party people are not racist…they are Patriotic Americans who want the greatest country in the world to remain the greatest, by exercising their right to make their voices heard.

This isn’t about race. This is about results, and the results by this administration are missing in action.

What Not To Wear To An Oil Spill Speech

Holy Mackerel…would you look at this:

We all know the First Lady has a strange sense of propriety when it comes to clothes, but what the heck  is this? —In your face “oil spill chic?” Is she making light of the disaster?

What would she have worn after Katrina? —A water splattered shirt?

9/11 — Ashes and blood?

Election night —a hellish, blood splattered dress?

Gah.

The NAACP Attacks The Tea Party As Part Of Orchestrated Campaign To Discredit The Movement

NAA(Liberal)CP Tweet captured by Gateway Pundit

The NAA(L)CP is continuing the hard work that was started by the Congressional Black Caucus in March to discredit the Tea Party movement. No one was ever  “spat upon”, at the  March 20 Kill the Bill rally in DC. Emanuel Cleaver, while walking directly through the tea party crowd, (inches away from the protesters), received some spittle spray from someone who was yelling, “kill the bill!!!”  As the video documents…the man was obviously unaware that he had done anything wrong, although Cleaver looked annoyed. No examples of hollered racial epithets have been proven despite the numerous videos can that be seen on YouTube from the event, and despite the fact that Andrew Breitbart has offered $100,000 to anyone who can prove the allegations. Does the NAA(L)CP really want to revisit all this?

It’s tired. It’s old. It’s doesn’t fly…but as I’ve said before, Democrats are persistent critters and when they want to create a damaging meme about their opposition, there’s no stopping them. They know that a liberal lapdog media is more than happy to carry their water in most cases. Thank God for alternative media, and Fox News.

Hilary Shelton the Senior VP of Advocacy at the NAA(L)CP appeared on Fox to discuss the NAA(L)CP’s new resolution condemning “tea party racism”, which he believes says was apparent at the DC Kill the Bill Rally in March, citing the non incidents that have been thoroughly debunked. Phil Dennis, a founder of the Dallas Tea Party, did his best to fight back, but Shelton engaged in the favorite Lib tactic of filibustering and talking over his opponent. Video at Gateway Pundit.

I’ll be brutally honest. The NAA(L)CP are lying shills for the Democrat party….(but I think you knew that).

No one yelled, the “n” word even once let lone 15 times at the March 20 rally.

No one “spat upon” Emanuel Cleaver.

Rep. Andre Carson is  liar, and he should be censured .

Sarracuda says:

The only purpose of such an unfair accusation of racism is to dissuade good Americans from joining the Tea Party movement or listening to the common sense message of Tea Party Americans who simply want government to abide by our Constitution, live within its means, and not borrow and spend away our children’s futures.

This discussion on Hannity, Tuesday night is enjoyable because all parties agree, and no one’s a lying, spinning, demagoguing hack for a change.

Nice Deb Resolution Condemning Racism:

As a tea party activist, I condemn the few instances   tea partiers went overboard with their signs. This does nothing to help the movement, and gives the opposition ammunition to attack on the basis of race, whether or not race was even a consideration.

I condemn the blatant, overt and shocking racism displayed by the SEIU, NAACP, the Black Panther Party, and Obama’s Pastor for 20 years, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, some of which has been captured on video.

I also condemn the pass the NAACP gives itself, while condemning non existent examples of racism in the tea party, and the outrageous left-wing media double standard in reporting these events.
