The Righteous Rants Of The Day… [Updated Below]

14 July 2010 @ 10:28

Staying on the subject of yesterday’s The Spot On Quote Of The Day, the NAACP resolution that declares the members of the TEA Party movement to be raaaaacists…

As I expected, the TEA Party folks are not taking this lying down [as a certain corporation that makes greeting cards and a certain political party that is grand and old have, YKWYA].  The Gateway Pundit, Jim Hoft, who is a member of the St. Louis Tea Party, has published a resolution they passed on 12 July.  Here it is in full:

St. Louis Tea Party Coalition Resolution

July 12, 2010

Whereas, the National Association 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

Three cheers for the SLTP! 

I urge you to take the time to click here and read Jim’s full posting which follows the theme of it’s title: We Will Not Be Silenced.

Over at Carol’s Closet, Carol is spot-on:

No, we won’t be silenced by the utterly corrupt main stream media and their stoolie “journalists” and certainly not by a self-dealing NAACP that stopped caring about the advancement of colored people years ago. We are not like the cowardly Hallmark that bows down in the face of extortion. We will stand up for ourselves and for our country. The NAACP would do well to stick to what they do best-shaking down spineless corporations based on made up allegations.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH: It is time to confront the race hucksters wherever and whenever they make their baseless accusations and vomit up their calumnies.  They are trying, at the very least, to Balkanize this country and, at the very worst, to foment a race war in America.  Charles Manson must be laughing his arse off watching this.

UPDATE at 2005…

-Over at The Daley Gator, Gator Doug has the 411 on the NAACP’s connection with the New Black Panthers and links to some blacks who are condemning the organization’s resolution and actions.

-Over at Saberpoint, Stogie lends his powerful voice to the Righteous Rant chorus [and he plays a mean bass too].

-The TrogloPundit, as he does very well, states the obvious:

The NAACP accusing conservatives of racism. How is this news, exactly?

-Nice Deb has a nice round-up of links and offers some bang-on commentary, including 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.

Fox News: Proving There Is A God Who Is Merciful.

-Jim Hoft has the full test of the NAACP’s resolution here.

-William Jacobson has published some excellent analysis and links over at Legal Insurrection.  Here’s what I think is his most important point:

Make no mistake, either under the original or the revised version, the NAACP has placed itself firmly within the Democratic smear machine which for two years has been attempting to portray all opposition to Obama’s policies as racist.

I guess the model name of the machine is Chicken Little.

-Finally…

‘I told ya so..hehehehe.’

    From my post on the subject yesterday:

    There are those whose forefathers once suffered under the whip who now yearn to grasp that same whip, and in sanctimonious fashion cast it down upon others. They have not yet grasped, or in some cases utterly reject, the reality that ALL racism is wrong.
