The NAACP and various left-wing media groups have started up a new website, TeaPartyTracker.org. The point of this new website? Why, to monitor and report on any and all examples of "racism" and "extremism" in the Tea Party movement, of course. They are calling on bloggers and assorted lefties with camera phones to document any wrongdoing on the part of the tea party.
Good luck with that, guys. Oh, and here's a tip for you - the idiots on the fringes who carry the Obama is Hitler signs are LaRouchies - democrats. Just a little FYI for ya, 'cause so far you don't seem to have gotten the memo.
If the NAACP is so interested in rooting out racism on a national level, perhaps they should start here. Or here. And don't forget all of these. It's really amazing that their highly tuned 'racedar' didn't go off over this one - but, then, "death to cracka's" isn't really racist, so it's understandable that they would have missed that.
Even with a $100,000 bounty for video proving claims of racism in the tea party, there has still been no video tape to prove the point, even with the hundreds of cameras present - including ones in democrat hands. Perhaps the NAACP and their ilk should be focusiing on people like this who make their living off the back of racial prejudice, even when it is a hoax, and even when the result is violence and riots.
These constant, fruitless attempts to smear the tea parties as racist are wearing very thin. According to a press release from Project 21, a black activist group sponsored by the National Center for Public Policy Research:
"Progressives have hijacked the NAACP to the extent that the group stands silent as conservative blacks suffer indignities for their beliefs. Some NAACP even egg on this appalling behavior – providing political cover and lapdog services for these elitists," said Project 21 member Kevin Martin. "As a conservative black man, I have felt more welcomed and at home within the tea party movement than among those of my own who side with the this new NAACP. If a few random signs of President Obama looking like the Joker is indeed racist, then where was the NAACP when conservative blacks are depicted as lawn jockeys, Oreos and Uncle Toms?"
Actually, members of the NAACP themselves are guilty of this.
It's time to stop the race baiting. The damage being done is damage to themselves. As long as the NAACP and other progressive groups indulge in these antics, there will never be progress and there will never be healing. Resorting to baseless name-calling cheapens the NAACP and causes people to question their relevance. Attempts to make the dissent against the current administration (and just about every other issue) about race does a disservice to their cause.
