Timing is everything, so they say. And in the case of the NAACP and their racist pronouncement against the Tea Party, well, it seems the tick-tock of the ole clock has failed to chime in their favor. Just days after the NAACP’s from-on-high condemnation of the Tea Party, this black civil rights organization has been found harboring some hardcore bigotry in their own hollow halls of fame. Breitbart, on his Big Government news site, has released a video showing a black government official of the US Department of Agriculture declaring to a laughing and obviously pleased NAACP audience how she deliberately withheld assistance from a white farmer who was facing bankruptcy. Shirley Sherrod, Director of Rural Development for the state of Georgia, made these comments during an awards speech at the NAACP’s Freedom Fund banquet back in March. And the aftermath of this expose? Well, it appears that Ms. Sherrod has resigned her post, according to a statement issued by Tom Vilsack, Agriculture Secretary. But over at the NAACP, it’s been all quiet on the racism fakery front. I guess their brain trust is hunkered down behind closed doors choreographing a political tap dance to explain away their own racism. Take a gander at the video on BigGovernment.com.
And the bad news continues for this has-been organization. Roy Innis, National Chairman and Chief Executive Officer for the Congress for Racial Equality (CORE) has belittled the NAACP for its resolution condemning the Tea Party. Mr. Innis did not mince his words:
It saddens me as the chairman of a civil rights organization that is the spiritual grandson of the NAACP that they have allowed their name and their tradition to be pimped by politicians who are worried about keeping their jobs in 2010….I urge my brothers at the NAACP, Al Sharpton and others that use racism like political currency to be students of history. Let us all remember Santayana’s words, “those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
And from Lt. Colonel Alan West (USA Retired), who is the Republican candidate for Congress in Florida’s 22nd Congressional District, a biting condemnation of those “useful idiots of liberal racism”.
Instead of maintaining its mission and vision, the NAACP has now become the “useful idiots” (a term coined by Vladimir Lenin) for liberal racism. They have made themselves into a political hack job organization which now seeks to maintain the liberal progressive socialist control of the 21 century plantation. It is on this new economic plantation where the liberals seek to enslave the black community in order to maintain a devoted, monolithic, voting electorate….I find the Tea Party, to which I have spoken to several times, stands for fundamental principles and values consistent with that which has made America an exceptional Constitutional Republic.
Times, indeed, are a-changin. And the Democrats’ Useful Idiots Coalition is starting to crack and crumble. Oh, happy day.
