NAACP Joins Left-Wing Groups to ‘Monitor’ Tea Party Groups

From The Blaze:

“A watched tea pot never boils.”

That’s the rallying slogan of a new online “watchdog” site launched by the NAACP, in conjunction with partners ThinkProgress, George Soros’ Media Matters and a group called New Left Media.  TeaPartyTracker.org advertises itself as a site that “monitors racism and other forms of extremism within the Tea Party movement.”

According to the Daily Caller, the NAACP reached out to the various groups for help in compiling information implicating the Tea Party:

Media Matters and Think Progress representatives said their content and reporting haven’t changed and that the NAACP approached their organizations seeking only to republish select content they’ve produced. The NAACP’s new teapartytracker.org is aimed specifically at highlighting “racism” in the Tea Party.

New Left Media, the duo of Chase Whiteside and Erick Stoll who use a “Trojan trick” to get interviews with Tea Partiers, is also a partner organization on the new site.

As for what Media Matters, New Left Media, Think Progress and the NAACP plan to do with teapartytracker.org, Think Progress editor Faiz Shakir and Media Matters Vice President for Research and Communications Ari Rabin-Havt said the NAACP contacted them about sharing content related to the Tea Party.

Tea Partiers beware — the NAACP is watching you, and they now have a website where people can post “evidence” of racism and extremism.  But despite Andrew Breitbart’s offer of a sizable reward for solid evidence, there remains none.

NAACP President Tries to Weasel His Way Out of Controversial Attack on Tea Party Patriots

From Big Government:

NAACP President Ben Jealous just tried to weasel his way out of the unpopular, controversial, and obviously political resolution passed at the organization’s convention this week. The former civil rights group attacked and smeared the tea party patriots at their convention in Kansas City.

The Politico reported, via Free Republic:

NAACP President Ben Jealous said Thursday that the resolution passed by the group on Wednesday does not call the tea party “racist.”

The resolution the NAACP approved Wednesday at its annual conference in Kansas City alleges that the tea party has used racial epithets against President Barack Obama and has verbally and physically abused African-American members of Congress.

 A portion of the resolution does indeed characterize the behavior as “racist,” but Jealous said Thursday during an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that the resolution was not intended to condemn the entire movement as such.

“We aren’t saying that the tea party is racist,” Jealous said. “What we’re saying is that with their increasing power comes an increasing responsibility to act responsibly…and to call out when they see those things on those signs.”

Jealous argued that racist groups have embraced the tea party movement and said that what the NAACP would like to see one of the movements leaders – whether it be former House Majority Leader Dick Armey or former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin – denounce those elements of the tea party.

“These sort of KKK type groups saying they like the tea party and want to be a part of it, it would just seem someone would call out and say we don’t want them to be a part of it,” he said.

Asked if he thought members of the tea party are racially insensitive, Jealous responded: “No, not at all.”

Unfortunately for Jealous, that is not what was reported on their awful resolution.
The KC Star reported:

The resolution, scheduled for a vote as early as Tuesday by delegates attending the annual NAACP convention in Kansas City, calls upon “all people of good will to repudiate the racism of the Tea Parties, and to stand in opposition to its drive to push our country back to the pre-civil rights era.”

Jealous better start getting his facts straight. You can’t have it both ways, Ben.

For the record… The former civil rights group does not even have the courage to post their resolution online.
How weak.

The NAACP leftists really ought to clean up their own racist mess before they start pointing fingers.

Simple Logic Defies Tea Party ‘Racist’ Label

From Big Government:

The assertion that the Tea Party is “racist” is not only unsupported by facts, it is also an assertion that is impossible to determine.  The simple application of reason — a shocking request to make for those too ideologically rigid to see straight — proves this out.

Even assuming the most liberal definition of the word “racist”, we must ask how an entire set of people can be proclaimed to be racist.  For starters, is there some percentage threshold that any group must cross to be branded “racist”?  The question itself is absurd, so we rightly dismiss it.  Likewise, if even a single African-American is supportive of or, God Forbid, a member of the Tea Party, does that negate the racism assertion?  Or does it brand that unfortunate soul an “Uncle Tom”? Again, the questions are absurd.

The NAACP vs. Black Americans

From RedState:

The NAACP has made it official: The Tea Party is racist. The attacks are driven by nothing but fear – the Democrats are terrified of the results of the November elections, and are in a visible tizzy. Black voters aren’t nearly as revved up without Barack Obama on the ballot, and stirring up racial tensions turns out Black voters, which helps Democrats. I reckon they figure that if they keep pounding this home, eventually it’ll stick – and Lord knows they’ve saturated the media with the meme.

Quick recap of what we’re dealing with on a media level now:

What the NAACP is dong is inciting racial tension, and it is not an accident. Anyone who is a part of this conservative groundswell can tell you that there is emphatically not a racial element behind the movement. However, since they thrive on racial tensions, this is their comfort zone. How better to destroy the largest threat to their vision of liberal utopia? What they fail to acknowledge is that they are also diminishing the real threats to racial equality in America by spending their time destroying those that aren’t truly racist.

I Condemn the NAACP: It Needs to Wake Up!

From Big Government:  (written by our friend Emery McClendon)

I condemn the NAACP. I am really upset over their recent charge that the tea party movement is racist. When will these people wake up?

What is the basis of their allegations? Speaking from experience, I will say that the claims they seem to be relying upon are false. The NAACP has once again been duped by the left.

I organized a tea party rally in Fort Wayne, Indiana. I have also travelled around the State of Indiana speaking at similar events. I have attended events and rallies with other conservative groups in Chicago, Detroit, Washington, DC and elsewhere. I can say that these events were open to anyone that wished to attend. I was even recently awarded a plaque by a tea party group in Madison County, Indiana. Is this racism?

Wake up, NAACP!

 You have once again shown that you do not do your homework on the issues, and you are being used to discredit a movement that only wishes to preserve our founding principles and the Constitution. These are principles of freedom that apply to all Americans.

We Will Not Be Silenced! St. Louis Tea Party Passes Resolution Condemning NAACP Racism

From Big Government:

We Will Not Be Silenced

Last year the Pelosi-Obama regime passed the most irresponsible and damaging piece of legislation in American history – the Trillion Dollar Stimulus Bill. They dumped a trillion dollars into a government sink hole with the promise that they would create jobs. We knew better. We were afraid for our families and our country. We were outraged and took to the streets. We spoke out. We came out. We protested the elites.

We will not be silenced.

On April 15th of last year we met in cities across this great nation. We protested the reckless spending, the record deficit, the bailouts, the careless decisions being made by this radical Administration and Congress. We came out in force, hundreds of thousands of us. We stood as one.

We will not be silenced.

We shocked the elites. We shocked the radicals and extremists. They couldn’t believe that we were speaking out. This wasn’t their plan. They knew they had to react and they lashed out at us. They called us mobsters, Nazis, radicals, and racists. They beat us, and smashed us in the face and bit off fingers. They wanted us to pipe down; to be good little drones as they continued to wreak havoc across this great nation with their radical agenda. But, we gathered on street corners and met them at town halls.

We will not be silenced.

They rammed through radical piece after radical piece of legislation. They took over whole industries. Their thirst for power was never quenched. They ignored the nation’s unemployment and instead focused on the next industry they could takeover and control. We organized and marched on Washington. Hundreds of thousands of us. They lied about our numbers.

We will not be silenced.

In January they rammed through their nationalized health care plan. They lied to us. They said it would save us money. It won’t. They said it would not cover abortion. It did. They said your insurance plan won’t change. It will. We met them in Washington. And their state-run media lied about us and made up stories that we were racists. Despite proof they continue this lie today. But…

We will not be silenced.

Today they reach a new low. The far left NAACP will pass a resolution calling us racists. We are hurt. We are angry. We are upset with this horrible lie.

We will not be silenced.

Not now. Not ever.

The St. Louis Tea Party Coalition passed a resolution last night condemning the racist attacks by the NAACP and the democratic-media complex.

St. Louis Tea Party Coalition Resolution
July 12, 2010

Whereas, the National Coalition for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) was founded to advance the position of minority groups, and

Whereas a hallmark of the NAACP has been to do the important work of identifying and exposing remaining vestiges of racism and discrimination, and

Whereas the NAACP vocally stands against the discriminatory and harmful practice of labeling people with a broad brush, and

Whereas the NAACP decided to launch their 101st National Convention with a resolution condemning the Tea Party movement and labeling millions of their fellow Americans who subscribe to the movement as “racists”, and

Whereas the “Tea Party movement” is a label applied to patriotic Americans who have expressed their political free speech in the grand tradition of all that is American, that being the spirited expression of viewpoints in a 100% peaceful manner, and

Whereas, it is a hallmark of America that we settle our disputes civilly and avoid the gutter tactic of attempting to silence opponents by inflammatory name-calling, and
Whereas the very term “racist” has diminished meaning due to its overuse by political partisans including members of the NAACP, and

Whereas, the NAACP had an opportunity to preserve some semblance of legitimacy by standing up for Ken Gladney, the victim of a vicious racist battery conducted by a black avowed communist, even labeling him an “Uncle Tom”, but chose instead to use the opportunity to mock the St. Louis Tea Party, and

Whereas, the NAACP has refused to denounce the New Black Panther’s call to murder white cops and their babies, and

Whereas, the NAACP does its entire membership a grave disservice by hypocritically engaging in the very conduct it purports to oppose,

Now therefore be it resolved that the St. Louis Tea Party condemns the NAACP for lowering itself to the dishonorable position of a partisan political attack dog organization, and,

Be it further resolved that the St. Louis Tea Party calls on similar organizations to join in unanimous condemnation of this despicable behavior, and

Be it further resolved that we demand that the NAACP withdrawal their bigoted, false and inflammatory resolution against the tea party for any further consideration, and

Be it further resolved that these organizations call on the Internal Revenue Service to evenly apply their standards and consider the tax-exempt status of the NAACP considering the degree to which they are engaging in habitual partisan political behavior.

Adopted unanimously, this day, July 12th, in the year of our Lord, 2010.

A copy of this resolution shall be sent immediately to the NAACP at: washingtonbureau@naacpnet.org

We will not be silenced.

Radical NAACP Leftists Propose Resolution Condemning Tea Party Racists

From Big Govenment:

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). the radical leftist group that labels black conservatives “Uncle Toms”, proposed a resolution at their 101st Annual Convention this weekend condemning the “tea party racists.” This far left organization will vote on the resolution Tuesday at their national meeting.

A racist NAACP leader recently attacked black conservative Kenneth Gladney for being “kissed on the forehead, by a European.”

The Kansas City Star reported, via Free Republic:

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People will propose a resolution this week condemning racism within the tea party movement.

The resolution, scheduled for a vote as early as Tuesday by delegates attending the annual NAACP convention in Kansas City, calls upon “all people of good will to repudiate the racism of the Tea Parties, and to stand in opposition to its drive to push our country back to the pre-civil rights era.”

NAACP leaders said the resolution was necessary to make people aware of what they believe is a racist element within the tea party movement.

 “I think a lot of people are not taking the tea party movement seriously, and we need to take it seriously,” said Anita Russell, head of the Kansas City chapter of the NAACP. “We need to realize it’s really not about limited government.”

Russell said she was “pretty certain” the resolution would pass.

What happened to this once respected organization?
