Now there is an original charge that cuts to the bone. What a surprise that a group of liberals who would not allow black members of Congress enter their ranks if they were 100% black but not 100% liberal think the best way to move their political agenda forward is to make up false charges against people they disagree with.
"We're deeply concerned about elements that are trying to move the country back, trying to reverse progress that we've made," NAACP spokeswoman Leila McDowell told ABC News. "We are asking that the law-abiding members of the Tea Party repudiate those racist elements, that they recognize the historic and present racist elements that are within the Tea Party movement."
Let us allow reason to prevail on your poorly bridled concern. If you have concerns about racist ideology and racially motivated animus, there is plenty to find among the New Black Panthers and others of their ilk.
These clowns from Congress have no qualms over race baiters like Jeremiah Wright and Jesse Jackson. They look the other way and have nary a peep to say while the New Black Panthers are out violating the Voter Rights Act and shouting about having to kill "some crackers" and "kill their babies". And yet the Congressional Black Caucus, with all their concerns over racial discord, say nothing.
They in block shoved their health care monstrosity down the throats of the innocent public, then passed parade like through a Tea Party gathering in Washington, baiting with cameras ready their hoped for racial moment. Well guess what? They didn't get it.
Why is that a surprise to them, and yet no surprise to me? They recorded that thing from multiple angles and with multiple individuals and what did they get? Not a thing. They just assumed somebody would call them a racial epitaph. Next time they'll have to plan better and get their plants into the crowd ahead of time.
This is not at all what Martin Luther King Junior had in mind when he invisioned a hoped for color blind society. All these people can see is color, and political power to be seized through it.
The St. Louis Tea Party movement has mounted a response:
In a matter of hours, the St. Louis group fired off to the NAACP the statement demanding the organization withdraw its "bigoted, false and inflammatory" resolution.
That's right after my own heart.
