Fighting Back Against NAACP Defamation

The NAACP has decided that it’s worth time to call 20 million American patriots “racists” for advancing liberty and economic opportunity. 

At midnight, the St. Louis Tea Party Coalition sent a resolution condemning the NAACP’s bigotry and hatred to its Washington bureau.

The Tea Party’s principles are simple and clear:

  • Smaller federal government
  • Lower taxes
  • Fiscal responsibility
  • National defense
  • Federalism

Those are precisely the tools to lift all Americans out of poverty. They’ve worked every time they’ve been tried.  In America, we just haven’t tried them in awhile, due in large part to the NAACP’s advancement of socialism.

Each of these First Principles protects the rights of every American—the rights inherent in our humanity, not phony “rights” invented by a bureaucrat.  We stand for rights given by God that no man, no government, can justifiably deny or diminish.  Our principles are the very same principles that the NAACP stood for in 1909 but has wandered away from since the 1970s.

When you look at the crime and poverty and family breakdown of the African-American community, where median household income is below that of illegal aliens, you see a half-century of failure by the NAACP. When you consider that the NAACP blocks every effort to educate the poor through school vouchers, you realize that the NAACP is all about power for a few, not opportunity for everyone. When you see that the NAACP refuses to condemn New Black Panther Party calls to murder police officers and babies, you understand how far that organization has fallen.

None of those persistent problems was caused by the tea party movement, yet the principles of the tea party are exactly what’s needed to wind down the multi-generational destruction in the African-American community.  As I have said repeatedly, we measure compassion by the number of people lifted out of poverty, not the number who remain trapped. We promote hope and achievement through liberty, safety, and pursuit of happiness.  That’s all we want.

The NAACP was once a vital weapon in the war against segregation and oppression. All that’s left is abigoted and malicious shell that does far more harm than good for people who need a break. 

The NAACP should give reason and decency a break by withdrawing its false and defamatory attack on the tea party movement.

    1. I don’t often see politicians on the right using usnuual incidents to try and take away rights. If they did, I would be just as disgusted.As I pointed out, these guys know this law had nothing to do with either of these shootings, so yes, therefore they are con artists.One can be sincerely and honestly against gun rights aka the Constitution. It just means they are ill-informed about our history and selective in their support of the Constitution. These pols, however, are just shameful opportunists.

  1. Your response was well put, and timely. It is no longer wise to turn the other cheek, so to speak, when accusations of racism rear their ugly head. In particular, it needs to be addressed when these accusations are fabricated solely with the intent to intimidate. It is long past the time to put a stop to this blatantly evil tactic to harass and frighten. I have been to at least 6 tea party protests here in the East, and have never heard even the slightest racial comment, unless you count the after the event comments by the news media. The administration and their backers have vilified people who, though somewhat reluctantly,have simply taken up the gauntlet thrown down years ago by the Founding Fathers. Thank you for so eloquently responding to what seems to be a call to incite violence against our peaceful demonstrations.

  2. Thank goodness someone is willing to say something about NAACP and racism. We are all so quiet and are afraid to say a peep. Good for Dana and the Tea Party movement!
