Tea Party Doing Something Right


I watched the sparring  between the NAACP and the Tea Party with more than passing interest over the past week, and here’s what I have concluded:

The NAACP has more racist bigots in it than the Tea Party could ever hope to.

Why would I say that?  Simple.  When the Tea Party had a guy write some questionable documents, they kicked him out.  You couldn’t “renounce” someone in a stronger way than that.  But the NAACP still has not denounced the New Black Panther Party’s members who intimidated voters in Philadelphia.  They have denounced their actions, which is radical speak for “we wish we had thought of that.”

I watched, over the weekend, several black spokespeople jump up and down that the Tea Party wouldn’t say that the infiltrators at their rallies should be denounced.  Not their actions.  The people themselves.  The NAACP fell all over itself trying to make the Tea Party out to be something it is not.  A racist group, paralleled by the Nazis and the KKK.  Yet, when black members of a radical party say they “hate a cracker,” and that you must “kill their babies,” no outrage from the NAACP.  Why is that, I wonder?  Could it be that the NAACP holds these views themselves?  Could it be that their leadership isn’t so much about advancing black people as it is about punishing white people for the things they have done in the past?

Professor  Marc Lamont Hill of Columbia University told Bill O’Reilly on Friday that the NAACP will not denounce these thugs in Philadelphia, because they “advance the cause” of black people.  So let me see if I understand this.  A few nuts out of thousands wear t-shirts comparing President Obama to Hitler, a billboard shows him next to Hitler and Lenin, and the Tea Party must denounce the people wearing the shirts and paying for the billboards, but a young black man is caught on camera spewing racial hatred, and the NAACP is somehow required to back him up?  What if there was film of this guy killing a white person who did nothing to him?  Would they then rush to his defense?  The sad thing is that they probably would.  When liberal groups did the same thing (and worse) to President Bush, there were no organizations calling for a denunciation.  That’s because even ignorant hat speech happens to be protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution.

There have been a lot of people out there saying the Tea Partiers spat upon a black congressman and called him the n-word.  Of course, no proof of this is available anywhere, and Andrew Breitbart has offered a $100,000 reward for proof that this occurred.  None has been presented.

And therein lies the difference.  When it comes to race relations in America, it is assumed that all white people are racists and bigots who attend white sheet parties on Friday nights before going to a Tea Party rally on Saturday.  There are no black racists.  There are no black bigots.  Even ones who call for the death of “cracker babies.”  Proof is not required to show that a white person is a racist, and excuses are made when there is proof that a black person is a racist.  The benefit of every doubt is given to these guys, when the truth flies right in your face.  “It couldn’t possibly be true that a black person would be racist.  They are simply too dignified to behave that way.”  Remember the Rodney King verdict and the ensuing riots and then tell me about “dignified.”

Either way, the Tea Party must be doing something right to get the head of the NAACP to call them out like this.  It must really get under their skin to see black people and white people doing something together to try to stop a socialist tyrant from destroying our country.  Of course, to the NAACP, unity between races makes them even more irrelevant than they are already, and that means less money in donations, fewer opportunities to extort money from American corporations, and, in the end, the once proud organization dying a slow death in obscurity.

In the words of Rodney King, “Can’t we all just get along?”  Not as long as the NAACP is out there, doing their best to divide Americans based on skin tone.
