Pigs Fly! CNN's Anderson Cooper Apologizes For Not Challenging Shirley Sherrod's Smear Of Andrew Breitbart, Discusses Charles Sherrod's Racism
First, Cooper apologized for not challenging liberal Saint Shiley Sherrod about her slanderous assertion that Andrew Breitbart is a racist.
Finally, Cooper went into the controversy regarding the Sherrods successfully suing the USDA, prior to her appointment to the agency. Then, he also played the comments of Charles Sherrod which were made earlier this week, saying the "white man and his Uncle Toms" should be stopped from stealing their elections.
Shirley Sherrod announced earlier in the week she's suing Breitbart. I have a suggestion for Andrew, how about counter suing her for slander, and include the Congressional Black Caucus in the suit for their slanderous "n-word" accusation against the Tea Party.
Bruce at Gay Patriot withdrew his apology to St. Shirley, stating that Breitbart was "right on the money." Yes he is, because as Bruce said, the Sherrods proved to be "full blown, race-baiting liberals."

Bused-In-From-L.A. Rent A Mob With Mexican & Che Guevara Flags Protest Arizona SB 1070 Outside Maricopa County Jail
As you can see, these protesters who've been brought in from LA to cause civil disobedience are waving not only the Mexican flag, but one with mass murdering Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara.
There's nothing I'd like to see more than these rabble rousers in one of Sheriff Joe Arpaio's work camps, eating baloney sandwiches while wearing their pink undergarments.
So what is his recommended punishment? A reprimand. Yes, a slap on the wrist (New York Post, via Ace of Spades).
The House ethics investigatory subcommittee recommended that Rep. Charlie Rangel be reprimanded, which is the least severe punishment, according to a new report.Once again, Democrats protect their own.
The disclosure was made today by Rep. Gene Green (D-Texas), who is the panel's chairman.
A reprimand falls below expulsion and censure on the list of available punishments.
Flashback to Nancy Pelosi after winning control of the House in 2006, vowing to that "The Democrats intend to lead the most honest, most open and most ethical congress in history."
Eat your words, Nancy, and get ready for a demotion come November! That is, when we the people drain your swamp.

When asked about his background, which includes a black father and white mother, Obama said of African-Americans: "We are sort of a mongrel people."I guess "The Won" ran out of Special Olympics "jokes" to tell.
"I mean we're all kinds of mixed up," Obama said. "That's actually true of white people as well, but we just know more about it."
The president's remarks were directed at the roots of all Americans. The definition of mongrel as an adjective is defined as "of mixed breed, nature, or origin," according to dictionary.com.
Obama's friend, Robert Byrd, who recently left this Earth to the great Klavern underground, once said something similar:
I shall never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side ... Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.But hey, since they're Democrats, they can get away with it. Imagine if a Republican uttered that same description of blacks as Obama or Byrd did.

But it's not just Arizonans who are the victims of Judge Susan Bolton and the Obama Regime, it is all Americans angered by the federal government's unwillingness to enforce federal immigration law. In other words, cheap labor and playing racial politics, for the sole purpose of getting their votes on Election Day, are the only things that matter to liberal Democrats.
As I said in the previous post about treason, what good are our immigration laws when no one wants to enforce them?
Bottom line: This was all about politics, and being a Democrat appointee, Judge Collins put party before rule of law, as Heather McDonald writes at NRO:
So determined was Judge Bolton to follow the Obama administration’s political strategy regarding the law’s putative impact on legal immigrants that she exploited a drafting error in the law that Arizona had already acknowledged and repudiated. S.B. 1070 authorizes local law-enforcement officers to check the immigration status of individuals they have lawfully stopped, if they have reasonable suspicion that the individual is in the country illegally, and if the inquiry into immigration status is practicable. S.B. 1070 also required that “any person who is arrested shall have the person’s immigration status determined before the person is released.” Arizona stated in its brief and testified in court that the legislative intent behind that sentence regarding arrestees was that only people for whom there is already reasonable suspicion that they are in the country illegally would have their immigration status checked after arrest. The section does not apply to every arrestee.Bill Jacobson at Legal Insurrection, brilliantly notes:
With a federal government which refuses to take action at the border until there is a deal on "comprehensive" immigration reform, meaning rewarding lawbreakers with a path to citizenship, this decision will insure a sense of anarchy. The law breakers have been emboldened today, for sure.Such has been the state of modern liberalism since the 1960s, the lawbreakers and lawlessness are championed.
As it stands this afternoon, it is perfectly rational for someone faced with the choice of obeying the immigration laws or not, to choose not to do so. The choice of lawlessness makes a lot more sense than spending years winding through the byzantine legal immigration system, because the end result will be the same but lawlessness gets you here more quickly.
When the law and the federal government reward lawlessness, something is very wrong.
Treason is one of those, but I guess that's only a word that gets thrown around against opponents of the current Regime in Washington.
I'm talking about WikiLeaks leaking of thousands of documents about the Afghanistan War to New York Slimes, alQueda's favorite newspapers, as well as Der Splegel.
Now, thanks to these leakers, not only are the lives of our military members in more danger, but so are the lives of Afghans who are aiding us in the fight against alQueda and the Taliban.
The classified military documents released by the group WikiLeaks.org could not only threaten the lives of U.S. troops, but the Afghan civilians with whom they work, a top U.S. military commander in Afghanistan said today.Notice that the Obama Regime didn't do a damn thing to try and stop these leaks from being reported. That's because there's a political element involved. Let's face it. The liberal Democrats really don't want to fight this war. Remember how their mantra during the Bush Years was that Iraq was the wrong war and Afghanistan was the "good war," because it was all about getting one guy--Obama bin Laden. We can see from their vote on the war funding bill, and the way the Regime dithered in sending more troops last year that all their support for Afghanistan was a bullshit political ploy to get elected.
Army Maj. Gen. John F. Campbell, commander of U.S. and international forces in Regional Command-East and Combined Joint Task Force 101 as well as the 101st Airborne Division, addressed the issue during a video news conference with Pentagon reporters from his Afghanistan headquarters.
...“Anytime there’s any sort of leak of classified material, it has the potential to harm the military folks that are working out here every day to preserve that,” Campbell said. The documents, reportedly given to several U.S. and international media weeks ago, are said to detail field reports from Afghanistan, as well as alleged Pakistani partnership with the Taliban. The more than 70,000 documents cover the period from January 2004 through December 2009, according to Pentagon officials.
Pentagon spokesman Marine Corps Col. Dave Lapan said today that U.S. troops in Afghanistan are hearing discontent from Afghan partners, whose names were revealed in the documents leak. Some Afghan nationals work with coalition forces to provide information and whereabouts of militants and insurgent activities.
“There’s been displeasure from folks whose names appeared there,” Lapan said. “Anyone whose name appears in those documents is at risk. It could be a threat to their lives, or to their future conduct” in support of coalition forces.
There is a price that needs to be pay, because right now, the world is watching. Who would help us or our allies if they know their names might be leaked by these activist liberal "journalists?" Similarly, what nation would want to be our ally if we have such a wishy washy foreign policy and are only willing to fight wars when the going is good?
To paraphrase my friend Melanie Morgan from a few years ago, of which I'm in full agreement, NY Slimes Editor Bill Keller should be tried for treason and, if found guilty, should receive the maximum penalty for that crime, including the death penalty. But I would also add the names of "Pinchy" Sulzberger and the slime who are behind WikiLeaks.

Thanks to Scott for the link and the write up about the whole lie being told by Andre Carson and the Congressional Black Caucus about the "n-word" allegedly being hurled by Tea Party activists. This is a story that should not fade away because it shows (like the JournoList expose) how much the media has not only become an activist media, but (to characterize Rush Limbaugh) a "Drive By Character Assassination" squad.
Sarah Palin, Joe the Plumber--all examples of the media going out of their way to dig up as much information as they could in one day, but could not and would not spend even ten times the amount of time vetting the 2008 Democrat nominee for President, Barack Hussein Obama, and his radical friends and associates. Now Andrew Breitbart is new target of these drive-bys, because he brought down ACORN, and took on the NAACP/Congressional Black Caucus over their Tea Party smear.
And then there's the the way they've tried to destroy the Tea Party. First, the Lapdog Media ignored us, then they mocked us with the sexual slur "teabagger" or claimed we were organized by Fox News. We didn't go away, then they tried to call us "unAmercian," "Tim McVeigh" wannabes. Then, when they were on the verge of losing the Obamacare debate, they engaged in the worst kind of slander and smear tactic--calling a group of Americans "racist" simply because they dared to disagree with the far-Left agenda of the President and his party.
This is not the function of the media. They must continue to be called out and they must be stopped.

THE US government secretly advised Scottish ministers it would be "far preferable" to free the Lockerbie bomber than jail him in Libya.
Correspondence obtained by The Sunday Times reveals the Obama administration considered compassionate release more palatable than locking up Abdel Baset al-Megrahi in a Libyan prison.
Wrecakge of Pan Am 103, blown up by a bomb over Lockerbie, Scotland in December 1988. The Obama Regime backed the release of the bomber on "compassionate" grounds.
The intervention, which has angered US relatives of those who died in the attack, was made by Richard LeBaron, deputy head of the US embassy in London, a week before Megrahi was freed in August last year on grounds that he had terminal cancer.
The document, acquired by a well-placed US source, threatens to undermine US President Barack Obama's claim last week that all Americans were "surprised, disappointed and angry" to learn of Megrahi's release.
Scottish ministers viewed the level of US resistance to compassionate release as "half-hearted" and a sign it would be accepted.
Megrahi is not near death's door either. One doctor said he could live another ten years.
A terrorist who killed Americans released with the blessing of this Regime. This needs to be seriously investigated, and there should be Hell to pay for whoever backed the release.
CBS (aka SeeBS News) Says No Proof New Black Panthers Case Dropped Because Of Race, Cites Liberal Group Media Matters As Source
But that's not their only source. SeeBS also cites Media Matters "investigation" into the dropping of the New Black Panthers case.
A recent Media Matters investigation has debunked charges that the Obama administration withdrew criminal charges against the Panthers (in fact, the Bush administration decided not to pursue criminal charges, with Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez testifying that the Bush Justice Department "determined that the facts did not constitute a prosecutable violation of the criminal statutes"; a civil lawsuit was filed in the last days of the Bush administration, and a judgment won by the Obama Justice Department in May 2009).Did anyone tell writer David Morgan at See BS that Media Matters is hardly an "objective" news source? Media Matters was set up by liberal Democrat Party donors and also funded by Nazi collaborator George Soros through groups like the Center for American Progress, New Democratic Network and MoveOn.org.
Media Matters also found no evidence that any voters in the predominantly-black voting district had been prevented from voting.
Nowhere in the story is Media Matters liberal links mentioned. But is that not a surprise. SeeBS is a member of the Obama Lapdog Media.

Which brings us to Cyndi Lauper. You probably haven't heard of her, except on the oldies station. The last time she was seen in the public eye was, lets see, back in 1984 when she took part in World Wrestling Federation matches. It was PR move to promote her records about slapping the salami and helping Vince McMahon transform "rasslin" into some kind of Walt Disney World funpark.
Now, Cyndi Lauper got in a deLorean from 1984 to 2010, to enlighten the nation about former President Bush and perform the "She Bop" on "That One" (Newsbusters).
"The past - this year's getting a little better, but the past eight years, it was so dark," said the blonde popstar. "[I]t was like a fire sale, just before Obama came in ... And then this guy goes in and it's ‘his fault.' But it's not his fault - it's the other two. The criminals that never got charged."But she wasn't done, she then attacked evangelical Christians.
"[T]he way he would go on television - that George Bush, and speak hate. I mean, just unabashed hatred," Lauper continued.
"[T]hey took everyone's attention and said ‘gay marriage is a terrible thing.' But let me tell you, while they're saying ‘I believe in God,' and your hands are up, they fleeced our pockets. They took everything these poor people had and based it on religion," said the singer, before asking derisively, "What religion is that?"Talk about having a hateful tone!
The interviewer, Elvira Kurt, then chimed in, asking "But why are they so gullible? Why are people so eager to believe it?"
"Because people get desperate, and especially Americans - that whole evangelist baloney," Lauper replied.
"You can say bullshit," offered the interviewer.
"Bullshit," said the bubbly songstress before launching into a rambling historical and philosophical discussion of her views on God and religion.
"Because here's the thing, if you look at history, and you look at how people are taking over, well, they knock down one church and they put another church on top of that. And they tell you ‘praise the lord,'" Lauper continued, in a mocking tone. "Well let me tell you something, you can't blame God for all the shit that goes on in this world. It's people. And people don't own heaven ... Don't tell me you're not the devil in the name of your God. Cus it ain't your God."
Go back to irrelevance, Cyndi! You're so 1984!
St. Shirley Sherrod: "So Many Strange Things Happen When You Have Only White People In Charge of Dealing With Our People"
Fast forward to 2010, on CNN, where she says Andrew Breitbart would "like to get us stuck in the time of slavery."
Doesn't sound like the words of someone who had an "epiphany" about their past prejudices, as her NAACP and Lapdog Media defenders have been claiming.
Bottom line: Shirley Sherrod was a racist then and is a racist today.

Andre Carson Keeps Repeating The "Tea Party Called Us The N-Word" Lie. I'm Not Letting Go Of This Story
“The incident on March 20th happened as I’ve described. It has been reported by numerous media outlets because it is a fact. Andrew Breitbart has tried everything possible to try and rewrite history related to the events of that day—including citing as proof a video that was shot a full hour after the incident happened.Jason Mattera even caught up with Carson, who arrogantly acted like Mattera wasn't even walking next to him.
I’ve refused to engage him in some tit-for-tat because he has zero credibility on this issue. He wasn’t even on the Hill the day the incident happened.
If he wants to spend his time inciting people and defending language and actions that the overwhelming majority of Americans find reprehensible, then that’s his prerogative. But it’s not doing this nation—or the Tea Party movement–any favors.”
Carson doesn't want to engage with Breitbart, nor Jason Mattera, because he doesn't want to own to how he and his group have been caught in a big lie. Andrew Breitbart might not have been there, but I was...along with 40,000 other people, and I was there when Carson and the Congressional Black Caucus made their infamous walk.
A recap...Carson is referring to a 48 second video I took on March 20th, that first appeared in this post, which I posted before I heard of the allegation being made by Carson and the CBC against the Tea Party. Andrew Breitbart posted it at Big Government as did Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit. Videos shot by others around the same time not only showed no slur, but also showed that the alleged "spitting" incident involving Congressman Cleaver was, at the very least, an accident. On April 13th, AP writer Jesse Washington wrote a story on the video controversy, stating that my video was shot an hour after the slurs occurred. Interestingly, the next day, April 14th, Washington e-mailed me asking if I had any video of the walk from the Cannon Building. If he was so interested in the truth, why did he not e-mail me before writing his story? I did not get Washington's message until April 18th, as I was out of town that week. I did contact Breitbart the evening of the 18th and gave him a nine-second video, which was one of five angles in Larry O' Connor's video compilation at Big Government and also appeared on Fox News' Hannity program.
I personally called Carson's district office this afternoon. It seems as if my status as an eyewitness to these events does not matter to the Congressman's staff, as his press agent kept insisting that the slur happened. Even when I mentioned there were five different angles showing no evidence of the alleged slur, the aide kept repeating the claim.
Since Andre Carson and the CBC have the power of the Lapdog Media behind them, they are free to keep repeating this allegation without question. The media, in turn, keeps repeating this slander and ignoring the video evidence that it did not occur, showing how they've learned well from what Joseph Goebbels said, that "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it." We've seen from the expose of the JournoList website that so called "mainstream media journalists" were willing to abuse their freedom of the press to advocate for Obama, by conspiring to kill the Jeremiah Wright story, as well as attack Sarah Palin--all under the guise of being "objective journalists." In the last few days, the media has willingly participated in the Sainthood of Shirley Sherrod and demonization of a patriot like Andrew Breitbart, as well as Fox News, the network the Left loves to attack.
Meanwhile, as Sherrod receives a Presidential apology and the offer of another government job, millions of patriots of all ages and colors who make up the Tea Party are tarred and feathered by the NAACP as racists based on a false charge which the media refuses to examine the evidence. Makes me curious as to if the so-called "journalists" at JournoList on March 20-21, 2010 were writing, especially when doubt was beginning to be cast on the CBC claims. Were they hatching another conspiracy to ignore any evidence exonerating the Tea Party? We saw how the Lapdog Media tried repeatedly (and still do) to link Joe Stack of Austin and the Pentagon Metro shooter as Tea Party activists, even though both were Bush-hating Leftists.
Well Andre Carson, as I've done since the night of March 20th, I'm calling bullshit. This whole episode is a lie, because the Democrats needed something to distract from the fact they were losing the health care debate, and that most Americans were on the side of the Tea Party. You even used a Civil Rights icon, John Lewis, setting him up as an unimpeachable victim of this alleged Tea Party "bigotry" that never happened.
I'm not letting go of this story because it not only represents an injustice to millions of Americans who were only using their First Amendment rights, it is also taking this nation down a dangerous path that I, speaking as one American, do not want to see this nation travel down.
May I suggest, Cong. Carson, that you, the Congressional Black Caucus, the Democrat Party, apologize publicly to the Tea Party and the American people, for your slander.
Bottom line: She does not deserve a government job, as Obama, as well as Vilsack, have shown they'll cater to base of Leftist agitators. Neither does she deserve our apologies and good will, especially after talking with slimeballs like Media Matters, who regularly use the same tricks Andrew Breitbart is accused of.
Andrew McCarthy just about sums up my feelings at The Corner on NRO.

Open Letter To Congressional Black Caucus: What Is Needed From You Is A Public Apology, Not A Phony "National Dialogue On Race"
It is troubling that Shirley Sherrod was asked for her resignation as Georgia State Director for Rural Development at the U.S. Department of Agriculture because of an edited video clip. A full review of the clip demonstrates Ms. Sherrod’s personal transformation. She was clearly educating the public about the power of redemption. It is now apparent that Secretary Vilsack did not have all of the facts available to him and overreacted."Unfairly asked to resign?" "Overreacted?" "Didn't have all the facts?" You hypocrites! Those same words can be applied to your Caucus, in regards to the slanderous lies you've told about what happened outside the Cannon Building in Washington DC on March 20th. You know, how Andre Carson and Emmanuel Cleaver (among others) claimed a "chorus" of racial slurs were yelled at them by members of the Tea Party. These allegations, which have several inconsistencies based on who made the accusations and how they occurred, were immediately picked up by the Lapdog Media and regurgitated as the Gospel Truth.
“The Congressional Black Caucus continues to believe that Ms. Sherrod was unfairly asked to resign, without due process and should be reinstated immediately. There are many individuals still serving in the Department of Agriculture who were responsible for years of discrimination against African American farmers.
Never mind, immediately after your allegations were made, a plethora of video evidence (here, here, here, and here) proved these allegations false. This evidence has been ignored by the compliant media and your caucus, and, instead, you keep repeating this lie over and over in the hopes that Americans will believe it, despite the evidence out there that disproves it. The most recent attack came last week from the NAACP, and one of your caucus, Sheila Jackson Lee, comparing the Tea Party to former KKKers. When I called her office to complain about the comments, even one of her staffers admitted to seeing the videos, yet this unsubstantiated allegation continues to be repeated.
Did Ms. Jackson Lee overreact? Did she not have all the facts? Based on her aide's statement, I believe she, and you know the truth, that the n-word allegation is phony. It was made up not only to distract Americans from the health-care debate in its final hours, but also to unfairly attack opponents of the bill, this Congress and this Administration, because you could not defend the failures of the Obama Agenda, the high unemployment and record deficits. It is a calculated political move done in an effort to keep your majority in an election year. You cannot run on your record, so, instead, you resorted to the politics of personal destruction with the worst kind of allegation possible: branding a whole group of fellow citizens racists, knowing you would receive cover from the news media, who are in your hip pockets.
I write this not just as a concerned American, but as one of those Tea Party participants who was in DC on March 20th in front of the Cannon Building who personally witnessed your lie and filmed your walk to and from the Capitol. Had such a slur occurred I or one of the others with a camera, would have noticed and picked up any suspicious comment. But this isn't about me, or any other person who filmed the same scene with a camera. This is about an untrue allegation made in an effort to silence and intimidate Americans who are concerned about the direction this nation is headed. If I remember correctly, it was many on the Democrat side who claimed, without evidence, that the previous administration was silencing dissent. Now, under an administration that promised to heal partisan divides, dissenters are branded "racists" or "un-American" by you and these same liberal Democrats.
What is un-American is your intimidation of dissenting Americans through slanderous race-card playing. We don't need some phony "national dialogue on race." What is needed is a public apology from your caucus and the NAACP to the millions of Americans you slandered as "racists," "former KKKers" and "David Duke supporters."
Unfortunately, some of these attacks are coming from conservatives.
Were there things that could be been done better in vetting the story? Yes, but that is a separate debate. But unlike some in the conservative blogosphere, I'm not fully prepared to apologize to Ms. Sherrod for the revelations which came from the entire video. Also, more facts are coming out about her that make me question her background, including her own act of throwing out the race card. Yet, I don't recall ever seeing Breitbart advocating the firing of Sherrod. He’s even on record as saying he didn’t want her fired. His sole purpose was an effort to point out the double-standard the NAACP has when it comes to racism, and he achieved that. It's not limited to the episode Ms. Sherrod gave. The NAACP has attacked a man who was called a racial epithet and physically attacked last year, for the crime of selling Gadsden Flags to Tea Party members at a St. Louis area town hall meeting.
Additionally, the NAACP has had vile, anti-American racists like Louis Farrakhan and Jeremiah Wright speak at their meetings. In 2007, I noted how the organization came out to defend dog fighter Michael Vick, and had earlier defended the rape accuser of the Duke Lacrosse team, even after she was found to have lied about the case.
This is not a story about Andrew Breitbart or Shirley Sherrod, but instead about double-standards.
Notice the predictable template being employed by the Lapdog Media. Shirley Sherrod is a victim of Fox News (who never pushed the story) and had her comments "taken out of context." Reverend Wright and ACORN, among others, have played the same game when it comes to them being exposed, and the lapdogs do their best to come to the defense. However, why was there no admonitions towards the NAACP members applauding Sherrod’s admission reverse bigotry by an either NAACP official or Sherrod herself? The NAACP condemned her comments before the retracted them, never mind that they had a copy of the speech and (like the USDA) didn't examine all the facts before making their condemnation and firing of Sherrod. Now, especially after agitating by Obama’s campaign bundlers at CodePinko and the ANSWER Coalition (who had union manufactured signs produced in record time), the Obama Regime has apologized and the USDA chief is promising her a “unique” position to make amends for her firing.
Contrast the Sherrod victimization and defense by the media to the lies and slander used by the Congressional Black Caucus to defame the Tea Party on March 20, 2010, dutifully reported without question by the Lapdog Media. The NAACP used these lies (and made up some of their own) to approve a resolution condemning the Tea Party for “racism.” Never mind that video evidence proving that the allegations did not occur came out from this blog and many others who had video cameras that day. Unlike the media, who have given Sherrod’s side of the story, the evidence exonerating the Tea Party activists has been ignored, or at best downplayed, by the Lapdog Media, who still regurgitate the CBC lies.
The same thing happened to Rush Limbaugh. When he made an attempt to become the owner of the St. Louis Rams, he was subject to a similar slander campaign, as websites like the George Soros funded Democrat front group Media Matters attributed racist comments to Rush that he never uttered. Yet Media Matters now attacks Breitbart for taking Sherrod out of context. Similar to their lib media allies on JournoList, Media Matters (in true Stalinist fashion) also openly advocates removing certain longtime members of the White House Press Corps who don’t act like lapdogs for the Obama Regime.
Andrew Breitbart should be defended by those of us on the Right. He is a patriot who is doing the job the so-called mainstream media abdicated a long time ago—acting as a watchdog over the powerful in politics and media.
Tainting the tea party movement with the charge of racism is proving to be an effective strategy for Democrats. There is no evidence that tea party dherents are any more racist than other Republicans, and indeed many other Americans. But getting them to spend their time purging their ranks and having candidates distance themselves should help Democrats win in November. Having one’s opponent rebut charges of racism is far better than discussing joblessness.Of course. Democrats have nothing to run on except failure. So, they always retreat to their copyrighted edition of The Politics of Personal Destruction.
And the so-called "mainstream media," being the lapdogs they are, are complicit in the conspiracy. More exposes from Daily Caller.

Now ask yourself, if this wasn't an effort to protect the Obama candidacy (despite what Spencer Ackerman is quoted as saying in the piece) I don't know what is. Remember how the media was desperate to link John McLame to evangelical minister John Hagee and a prayer Sarah Palin gave at her Bible church (because the left-wing media hates evangelical Christianity)? Now if there was such a push against "tabloid style" journalism, then why those stories which really were a lame media attempt to distract from Wright's racist, anti-American views. You can be damn sure that, had Palin, McLame or any other conservative belonged to a church that was "unashamedly white" and promoted a "white values system," their candidacy would come to a quick end, and they would be a political footnote to that campaign.
But the media corruption doesn't end with Rev. Wright. Remember also how the Lapdog Media downplayed the Obama/Bill Ayers connection, the New York Times spiked an ACORN story linking Obama with the group, and the LA Times refusal to release a videotape of Obama's attendance at a dinner for former PLO advisor Rashid Khalidi that turned into a "Jew bash." In fact, the White House, DNC, Media Complex is in full force still today
Media malpractice has occurred in the last few weeks with the refusal of the lapdog media to cover the InJustice Department dropping the charges of voter intimidation by the New Black Panthers. Still another Democrat/media collusion occurred on March 20, 2010, after members of the Congressional Black Caucus claimed they had racial slurs thrown at them as they walked to and from the Capitol Building. When video proof came available showing that the CBC allegation was a lie, the media (with the exception of Sean Hannity's TV show last week) ignored the evidence. The media, including McClatchy Newspapers (who first published the slander), continue to push this lie without any examination of the videos, and refuse to put the burden of proof on the CBC. E-mails I have sent to McClatchy News, Dana Milbank of the Washington ComPost (among others) on this subject have not been returned. Why?
Perhaps Bernard Golberg needs to change the title of his book on the media/Obama connection from "A Slobbering Love Affair," because the relationship was apparently more of a marriage than an affair.
The name of the ship: The Audacity of Hope. I'm not making that up.
As I detailed in NRO on the eve of the 2008 presidential election, the Los Angeles Times has had in its possession, but has suppressed from the public, a videotape of Khalidi's 2003 going-away bash, when he left the University of Chicago to become the Edward Said Professor of Arabic Studies at Columbia. Then state Sen. Barack Obama gave a glowing tribute.From accounts that came out before the election, the party essentially turned into a Jew bashing session, and there were suspicions that unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers was at the party.
The LA Times refused to release the tape, despite an outcry...another example of how the so-called mainstream media were lapdogs for the Obama candidacy. See the Daily Caller story of how the lapdogs conspired to kill the racist Rev. Wright story.
At 9:53 a.m., I then posted a second comment (screenshot below).
By 10:15 am, that one was censored as well.
What's wrong, Jake Tapper & ABC? Why are you (and other lapdog media outlets) not only ignoring evidence proving this phony "n-word" allegation is slanderous libel, but you're continuing to repeat the lie.

He exposed today how, at an NAACP Freedom Fund dinner in Georgia back in March, USDA Georgia Director of Rural Development Shirley Sherrod admitted on camera during her speech that she took a white farmer in danger of losing his land to "one of his own."
In a follow up at Breitbart's Big Government comes news that Sherrod has resigned her position.
Now, were awaiting a reply from the NAACP.
This Border that was placed here by American invaders was another idea of theirs to hedge us in, to divide and conquer us. We do not recognize or respect any foreign imposed border. We do not respect anyone who invades and yet dares to call its Natives “illegal”. Aztlan is our homeland, where we belong. We will reclaim it according to the ancient prophecies, and we will from henceforth determine our destiny.
The real illegal immigrants on this continent are the white Europeans that crossed an entire ocean, not Mexicans.
So, where is the real racism coming from?

“Do you think elements of the Tea Party are racist?” This Week anchor Jake Tapper asked Vice President Joe Biden in an EXCLUSIVE interview. Biden equivocated at first, but then settled on a pretty firm no.Then, Biden went on to say:
“Well, the truth is that at least elements that were involved in some of the Tea Party folks expressed racist views,” he said.
“I don’t believe, the president doesn’t believe that the Tea Party is -- is a racist organization. I don’t believe that,” Biden said. “Very conservative. Very different views on government and a whole lot of things. But it is not a racist organization.”Sanest thing he's probably said in his life. Even after all the attempted equivocation, Biden knew the truth--the Tea Party isn't racist. Probably because he knows in his heart that the entire allegations about racial slurs yelled at Black Congressmen was a damn lie.
Wonder how long will it be before he's forced to walk his comments back.
According to the twisted logic of loons like Ben Jealous and Charles "Icarus" Johnson (among others), it is the right who supposedly carry such messages about the First Black President. Well, here is the car of an Obamabot who wants to "defloliate Bush."
So to Jealous, Icraus and all the other people making false accusations about conservatives, I say, "Put this in your pipe and smoke it."
Notice anything familiar about their logo?According to Wikipedia, the Raised Fist is a symbol used by "Marxists, anarchists, socialists, communists, pacifists, trade unionists, and black nationalists. The raised fist is usually regarded as an expression of solidarity, strength or defiance."
It’s pretty much the same thing as the “black power” logo, except with a spoon.
Here’s a review of the shop from 2008:
A sign outside Mount Desert Island Ice Cream in downtown Bar Harbor features a familiar emblem in an unfamiliar way. The logo of the black power movement — a raised fist — clenches a spoon.
Shop owner Linda Parker thinks the tongue-in-cheek sign adds some spice to typically bovine advertisements.
“Everyone has seen enough cows in the hillside,” she says.
Well, the sign is an attention-grabber, and it grabbed Obama’s attention, that’s for sure.
Since nothing happens in this administration that isn’t planned out in advance, it’s almost as if this is an “in your face” about Obama’s Attorney General’s dropping the voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party. Or is it just a coincidence and he just wanted some ice cream and the closest shop just happened to be one with a black power logo? Could be.
Defiance of the will of the American people certainly typifies Obama.

Arriving in a small jet before the Obamas was the first dog, Bo, a Portuguese water dog given as a present by the late U.S. Sen Ted Kennedy, D-Mass.; and the president's personal aide Reggie Love, who chatted with Baldacci.As a sidenote, Love is paid $102,000 a year for duties like handling Bo, and the President's ice cream, all at a time when many Americans have to settle for low paying jobs just to make ends meet.
"We're ready. We're going to do it all," Love said with a big smile.
Air traffic at the small Hancock County-Bar Harbor Airport in Trenton was shut down for the presidential arrival. A U.S. Coast Guard helicopter patrolled the air in anticipation of the first family's touchdown, and a pair of local fire and rescue trucks stood ready on an otherwise empty tarmac at the private air hangar.
On CNN, he aligned the Tea Party with White Supremacist groups like Stormfront, and people like David Duke (Gateway Pundit):
Like Stormfront.org, a website founded by former KKK leader Don Black, the Council celebrates its allegiance to and influence in the Tea Party. The avowed racist David Duke notes that thousands of Tea Party activists have urged him to run for president. When the Tea Party marches by, Duke thinks it's his fiesta.This comes days after Jealous originally tried to walk back his original "Tea Party is racist" claim, stating on The Morning Joe:
Our members know too well the pain and the potential danger of white supremacist groups. Since our resolution was publicized, a number of our branches and our corporate offices are reporting violent threats.
We have all seen the blatantly racist signs portraying President Obama as a monkey.
We have seen the press conference with the civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis describing how he was spit on and called the N-word, or Rep. Barney Frank being called a vicious slur for gay men.
Dick Armey and other Tea Party leaders have not only refused to disavow the racism -- they have denied it.
“We aren’t saying that the tea party is racist. What we’re saying is that with their increasing power comes an increasing responsibility to act responsibly…and to call out when they see those things on those signs.”Well, it's time to take Ben Jealous to school and educate him.
I have seen David Duke supporters. These are photos I took below...
...NOT from a Tea Party, but instead from a January 2009 anti-Israel, pro-Hamas rally outside the White House, put together by radical Islamists and Communist-inspired groups. See the link here for my entire essay. Conservatives who were there counterprotested these bigots, and even came under attack from them. Duke and Stormfront have had a history of supporting Islamists and Leftists like Cindy Sheehan, hardly the type of people you'd find at a Tea Party.
Jealous is still pushing the lie about the "n-word" supposedly being hurled at John Lewis and members of the Congressional Black Caucus, when there is no proof of such. Even the alleged "spitting" was, at the very least, an accidental discharge of saliva from a person yelling "kill the bill" with his hands cupped. As I mentioned yesterday, even a staffer with Cong. Sheila Jackson Lee's office admitted to seeing these videos (two of which were filmed by this blogger). The CBC and NAACP know damn well this is a lie, yet they keep peddling it, with a little help from their friends in the Obama Lapdog Media.
Jealous even ignores how Tea Party members wrote to the CBC in April, asking them to help in identifying anyone who might have said the "n-word."
As for the supposed death threats they've received, if they've happened, that's wrong and I don't know anyone who'd tolerate it. However, based on the lies Jealous has been using for his Tea Party slander, I'm calling bullshit, unless he's able to provide proof.
Bottom line: Ben Jealous is a liar and should be exposed as one. CNN, if they were a real journalism outfit instead of a lapdog for the Obama Administration, should expose him as such, instead of giving him a platform for slander.
Instead, it's all like a page written from Karl Marx.
This is what Obama's "faith" taught him. That White America's wealth had to be redistributed.
Black leaders have another name for this: reparations.

First, Shelton claims he has never attended a Tea Party, but then, in a different interview, said he was on Capitol Hill when "John Lewis" was spit at and "Emmanuel Cleaver" was called the n-word. Shelton noted they "monitored" that rally.
Well, Hilary. You're lying about the spitting & n-word. Why? I was there on March 20th. John Lewis never claimed he was spit on. Emmanuel Cleaver's office claimed it, but later tried to walk it back, because video came out showing that it was an accident. Cleaver couldn't identify the perp.
Cleaver also never was in the walk to the Capitol when the n-word was alleged to have happened.
And if you have the video proof, Hilary, I'm sure you'd have been playing it every hour, on the hour to justify your politically motivated resolution. But you don't, which means you're lying.
Two Weeks After Mourning The Passing Of A Former KKK Kleagle, Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee Compares Tea Party To "Those Who Wore White Sheets"
Might I add my own P.S.? All those who wore sheets a long time ago have now lifted them off and started wearing [applause], uh, clothing, uh, with a name, say, I am part of the tea party. Don’t you be fooled. [voices: "That's right.", applause] Those who used to wear sheets are now being able to walk down the aisle and speak as a patriot because you will not speak loudly about the lack of integrity of this movement. Don’t let anybody tell you that those who spit on us as we were walking to vote on a health care bill for all of America or those who said Congresswoman Jackson-Lee’s braids were too tight in her hair had anything to do with justice and equality and empowerment of the American people. Don’t let them fool you on that [applause]….Ok, Ms. Jackson-Lee. First of all, lets stop repeating the lies of the Congressional Black Caucus. The spitting "incident" was, at best, an accident, and there were no, zero, (0) racial slurs yelled, unlike Andre Carson claimed (see here, here, and here for more explanation).
And more more thing. Just like the phony civil rights group, the NAACP, the Congresswoman also participated in mourning the passing of a former Ku Klux Klan member, Kleagle and Exalted Cyclops: Sen. Robert "Sheets" Byrd (D-KKK).
On June 30th, she wrote the following on her website:
Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, a senior Member of the House Judiciary and Foreign Affairs Committees and Chairwoman of the Transportation Security and Infrastructure Protection Subcommittee of the Homeland Security Committee calls the death of Senator Byrd, the longest serving Member of the Senate, a loss of historic proportions. Senator Byrd, who served in the U.S. Senate for six terms, was not only a legend to his colleagues, but he had a grasp of the U.S. Constitution that was remarkable for anyone. His eloquent and poignant speeches are legendary in their simplicity about serious and complex issues.
Congresswoman Jackson said, “despite his early membership in the Klu Klux Klan, which he subsequently renounced, Senator Byrd showed remarkable judgment on a wide–range of issues important to the rights of African-Americans and all Americans. In his later years, the NAACP consistently gave Senator Byrd top marks for promoting the rights of African-Americans, and in June 2005, Byrd proposed an additional $10 million in federal funding for the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial in Washington, D.C.
His roots in West Virginia, and his thoughtful reflections on the Bible’s teachings imbued Senator Byrd with a deep sense of respect for all people, as well as for the needs of working class Americans and the poor. “He was a statesman in the U.S. Senate, one who will be hard to replace,” said Jackson Lee.
"Remarkable judgement on a wide-range of issues important to the rights of African-Americans?" even though he joined the KKK briefly at a time when most men his age were signing up to defend America after Pearl Harbor? Never mind that, even after leaving the Klan, Robert Byrd...
- Wrote a segregationist senator in 1945 that he'd "never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side ... Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds."
- Two years later, and years after he "left" the Klan, Byrd wrote a Grand Wizard saying “The Klan is needed today as never before and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia and in every state in the nation.”
- Not only voted against the 1964 Civil Rights Act & 1965 Voting Rights Act, but filibustered the 1964 bill on the racist notion that whites were superior to blacks because their brains weighed more.
- Voted against the only two black Supreme Court justices--liberal Thurgood Marshall & conservative Clarence Thomas. Voted against Condoleeza Rice as Secretary of State in 2005.
- Wanted to discredit Martin Luther King Jr. in 1968 saying he wanted him to "meet his Waterloo."
- In 2001, used the term "white niggers" in an interview with Tony Snow, adding "I'm going to use that word."
However, in spite of his days as a cross burning night rider and segregationist legislator, Robert Byrd received instant forgiveness in the eyes of the NAACP, the far-Left and Sheila Jackson-Lee, all because he was a Democrat.
UPDATE: Just to note: I called the Congresswoman's office and an aide who answered said they've been getting 50/50 split in regards to her comments. When I mentioned the CBC lie about the tea party using the N-word, the staffer admitted to seeing the videos proving there was no slur yelled. Even they know it's a lie, but are still milking it for all they can.
The U.S. Geological Survey reported a 3.6 magnitude earthquake centered in Montgomery County at 5:04 a.m. Friday.
The epicenter was in Gaithersburg near I-270 and Route 124 (39.145°N, 77.222°W), USGS reported in a preliminary finding. Its depth was 3.1 miles.
Authorities in the District and Montgomery and Arlington counties said there were no early reports of damage. Still, many residents were dialing 911 to report the rumbling.
“We are getting flooded with calls,” a Montgomery County police spokesperson said.
No traffic or transit delays were reported by local agencies, and the quake seemed unlikely to have any effect on the morning rush. Buses and trains were running on time, officials said.
Amy Vaughan, a geophysicist with the USGS, said the quake was the largest recorded within about 45 miles of Germantown since a database was created to track such activity in 1974. The largest earthquake before Friday morning's was a 2.7 tremor in 1993, Vaughan said. There was a 2.6 magnitude tremor in 1990 and quakes measuring 2.5 in 1997, 1993 and 1974.

I Condemn Ben Jealous, the NAACP & the Obamas, For Playing The Race Card Against The Tea Party In Their Attempt To Get Out The Black Vote In November
href="http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&cd=7&ved=0CDcQFjAG&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.encyclopedia.com%2Fdoc%2F1P1-79488710.html&ei=vVY-TOHBLIK78gaHsI3VBA&usg=AFQjCNHvw_5BGwvYb4grpBjyCc-5Q6flNA"> First of all, just what in the Hell is Jealous talking about? I've never heard the Tea Party advocate for the return of the pre-civil rights era, nor have I seen signs calling for the "lynching" of Obama or Holder. This allegation, just like the "n-word" and spitting allegations on Capitol Hill on March 20th, are nothing but lies and slander being spread by Jealous. I did not hear Jealous, the Congressional Black Caucus or others respond to the letter written by Tea Party members asking to share any videos they had so that, if such a slur was used, they'd know who said it, in order to "isolate and condemn" the perp.
On the contrary, I did see signs, bumper stickers, etc., calling for the assassination, beheading and hanging of George W. Bush, as well as anti-Semitic messages and other extremism at Left-wing "anti-war" rallies. I don't remember the NAACP or the Democrat Party ever condemning that.
George W. Bush even spoke at the NAACP convention in 2000. What did he get from that act of goodwill? The civil wrongs organization funded commercials implicating Bush for the murder of James Byrd in Texas, which was committed by three inbred racists. It didn't matter that, while Bush was Governor of Texas, two of the three scum were executed for their barbarism, Bush rejected phony "hate crimes" laws which are only one sided.
The politicking of the NAACP did not end. Their hateful former leader, Julian Bond, compared Republicans to Nazis and repeatedly used the term "Taliban wing of the Republican Party" to smear conservatives.
In contrast to their condemnation of alleged but not proven "racism" from the Tea Party, the NAACP and Jealous took part in the revisionism of KKK Kleagle and segregationist Senator Robert "Sheets" Byrd, referring to him as a civil rights champion, even though he filibustered the 1964 act. Never mind also that, in 2001, Byrd spoke about "white niggers" in a TV interview. No condemnation was necessary from the NAACP, because since Byrd was a Democrat, all was forgiven.
But there's even a more dastardly reason for the phony resolution yesterday. Ann Althouse found it and Karl Rove spoke about it tonight with Bill O'Reilly.
Polls show that black Americans still overwhelmingly support the president with approval ratings of about 90 percent. But many in 2008 were considered Obama voters who don't regularly show up to vote. So the resolution is part of a strategy to motivate potential voters to come out and vote in November.
It's all about politics. This resolution was written using slanderous lies like the non-existent signs and phony "n-word" allegation in order to scare black voters to get out to the polls this November, as polls have shown republicans are more enthusiastic about voting in numbers not seen since 1994. The lawsuits against Arizona by the InJustice Department were meant to do the same with Hispanic voters.
To back that up, remember back in April when Obama and the DNC made a video appealing to "young people, African-Americans, Latinos, and women who powered our victory in 2008 [to] stand together once again."
The fact his wife spoke to the convention is no coincidence either. I believe this was an orchestrated strategy by the White House, the DNC and the NAACP, as well as their media allies, all for the sake of preserving the Democrat majority in November. It's no coincidence either that the entire language of the resolution was not released, but will be in October, right before the mid-Term election.
For that, I condemn and denounce Ben Jealous, the NAACP, the Obamas and the DNC, for their slander of the Tea Party by the worst type of allegation--racism, in an effort to run a fear campaign to cover for Obama & the Democrat's failed leadership. The NAACP is not only an organization which is outdated, they desperately need to have their "non-profit" tax exempt status revoked, if they're going to act as a political organization.
The day after revelations that the Obama administration allowed federal taxpayer funding of abortions under the new national health care law that was supposed to prevent it, new information shows President Barack Obama has authorized abortion funding in a second state.So to all you phony "pro-life" Democrats who sold out your supposed principles to vote for Obamacare, you prove true the old adage "There's a Sucker Born Every Minute."
The first abortion funding had the Obama administration approve a Pennsylvania plan calling for the use of taxpayer funds to pay for abortions for virtually any reason through a new high risk insurance program created by the national health care law.
Now, the National Right to Life Committee, which uncovered the first case of abortion funding, has dug up a second set -- in New Mexico.
NRLC legislative director Douglas Johnson informed LifeNews.com of the first set and spoke with Kathryn Lopez of National Review about the abortion funding in the western state.
He said New Mexico state officials have put together a new $37 million high-risk pool that will begin enrolling members on July 1 and they will begin receiving benefits August 1 -- including federal funding for elective abortions according to the state insurance department's website. After the insured pays the deductible, taxpayer dollars form the federal government covers the remaining 80 percent.
"HHS has been hiding most of these high-risk plans, including the plan that HHS will administer directly in 21 states. Of the four state plans we've managed to ferret out, two provided coverage of all essentially all abortions — Pennsylvania and New Mexico," Johnson told National Review.
"This is part of a pattern, under this administration, of making 'soft' rhetorical statements on abortion policy, but consistently promoting and expanding abortion through low-visibility administrative decisions. The administration's heavy funding of groups pushing a proposed new pro-abortion constitution in Kenya is another example," Johnson added.
House minority leader John Boehner also sent a statement to National Review about the New Mexico funding.
"In just the past 24 hours, we've learned of two states in which the new federal high-risk insurance programs created under Obamacare and approved by the Obama administration will use federal funds to pay for abortion, despite promises by the White House and Democratic leaders that no such funding would occur under Obamacare," he said.
"These developments provide stark confirmation that President Obama's executive order last spring was little more than a political ploy to ensure passage of Obamacare by circumventing the will of the American people, who are clearly opposed to taxpayer-funded abortion," the Republican leader added.
We will have the pink slips waiting in November.
A pdf copy of the brief is here.
Besides noting that SB 1070 is consistent with Federal Law, Landmark states what many have ignored--Mexico's "unclean hands" on how they handle illegal immigration in their country, and has "no business" in the matter of Arizona's law.

NAACP Passes Slanderous Resolution Condemning Alleged (But Not Proven) Tea Party "Racism," Silent About New Black Panthers' Racism
Judy Thomas at the Kansas City Star writes:
Late this afternoon the NAACP passed a resolution calling on all people — including tea party leaders — to condemn racism within the tea party movement.
Passed on the fourth day of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People’s annual convention in Kansas City, the resolution also urged people to oppose what it said was the tea party’s drive “to push our country back to the pre-civil rights era.”
“We feel it’s very important that we educate our membership about the tea parties,” said Anita Russell, head of the Kansas City branch of the NAACP, as the debate on the resolution began. “We are concerned that there is a racist element within the tea parties.”
Delegates said they wanted to make it clear, however, that the resolution wasn’t indicting the entire tea party movement as racist.
Gee, that's very big of them. But as I've said earlier, this resolution was based on an accusation by the Congressional Black Caucus, that the Tea Party yelled the word "nigger" at them?
There was one problem: it was a lie! It didn't happen.
The NAACP repeated that lie in a threatening Twitter post.
Finally, why did the NAACP not condemn the racism and voter intimidation from the New Black Panthers?
I'm normally not one for lawsuits, but perhaps there should be a class action lawsuit for slander filed against McClatchy Newspapers (who owns the Kansas City Times), the CBC and the NAACP, especially since McClatchy and other media outlets are only repeated this debunked lie of Tea Party racism in a way that would make Goebbels ("If you repeat a lie, it becomes the truth") proud.
Weasel Zippers has the following Breitbart TV video of NAACP President Ben Jealous using SPLC lies to claim the Tea Party is a "direct descendant" of a White Supremacist group.
But since Byrd was a Democrat, his past as a cross burning night rider and opponent of civil rights was all forgiven.
More proof of how the NAACP has become an arm of the Democrat Party, and should lose their tax exempt status.
The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) posted a threatening warning on Twitter yesterday addressed to millions of Tea Party activists as news broke of statements by the NAACP accusing the Tea Party of being a racist group led by "hardcore white supremacists."
Msg to Tea Party: We will not allow u to send bigots into the Capitol, call civil rts heroes epithets & act like you didnt send em #NAACP101 about 16 hours ago via twidroid.
The New Black Panther Party has threatened the Tea Party-style rally being held by talk show host Glenn Beck on August 28 at the Lincoln Memorial.For more about the phony "n-word" allegation that the civil-wrongs group is using to slander the Tea Party, see my post from yesterday.
The threatening message posted on Twitter by the NAACP refers to alleged incidents in March when several Black Democrat Congressmen accused Tea Party protesters of screaming "n*****!" at them at the Capitol. One Congressman also accused the
protesters of spitting on him.
No evidence or witnesses were ever produced to support the claims. No arrests were made, even though Capitol police were all around that day.
Monday, July 12, 2010
I'm sure these sanctimonious race-baiters will even use the discredited "they called us racial slurs in DC" line, even though many of us there that day recorded evidence to prove those accusations of racism against the Tea Party were bold faced lies.From the Kansas City Star comes news today that the NAACP has decided to engage in public slander in a resolution scheduled for a vote tomorrow:
The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People will propose a resolution this week condemning racism within the tea party movement.The NAACP's claims of racism on the part of the Tea Party are based on a slanderous allegation by the Congressional Black Caucus which they could not prove, but was debunked and must be repeated here.
The resolution, scheduled for a vote as early as Tuesday by delegates attending the annual NAACP convention in Kansas City, calls upon “all people of good will to repudiate the racism of the Tea Parties, and to stand in opposition to its drive to push our country back to the pre-civil rights era.”
NAACP leaders said the resolution was necessary to make people aware of what they believe is a racist element within the tea party movement.
“I think a lot of people are not taking the tea party movement seriously, and we need to take it seriously,” said Anita Russell, head of the Kansas City chapter of the NAACP. “We need to realize it’s really not about limited government.”
Russell said she was “pretty certain” the resolution would pass.
...Among the charges lodged against the tea party in the resolution:
•Tea party supporters have engaged in “explicitly racist behavior” and “displayed signs and posters intended to degrade people of color generally and President Barack Obama specifically.” (refering to the Lefty LaRouche cult and their Obama as Hitler posters)
•Tea party activists have used racial epithets, have verbally and physically abused black members of Congress and others, and have been charged with threatening public officials.
The Anatomy of a Smear
On March 20, 2010, I was one of several people who had a handheld video device that captured the walk of the Congressional Black Caucus to and from the Capitol Building, on the weekend of the final vote on the Obamacare vote.
This video below I posted on YouTube and here that same evening, just before reading that these Congressmen alleged they had the word "nigger" yelled at them 15 times. This video below was carried by a number of blogs and new media outlets, including Andrew Breitbart and Big Government and Kerry Picket at the Washington Times.
The allegation made by the CBC was a lie. Many other videos were posted from different angles (and across the street) showing no evidence of any racial slur.However it was noted later that the slurs allegedly happened as the Congressmen were headed from the Cannon Building to the Capitol. On April 13, 2010, AP writer Jesse Washington wrote a story published the same say, stating that the video above (despite having no evidence of racial slurs was the wrong video. He then e-mailed me the next day, after the story had run, saying:
Mr. Marin (sorry, can't find your real name),:Why did he e-mail me after the story ran, if he was looking for more information?
My name is Jesse Washington, I'm a reporter with AP. I wrote a story earlier this week about the debate over whether protesters yelled "nigger" at black congressmen on March 20. I just read on your blog that you were outside the Cannon building when Carson and Lewis left. Do you have video from that time?
Due to being away from my computer that week, I did not get his e-mail, and why would I share information with an Obama Lapdog Media outlet like AP? I did contact Andrew Breitbart and gave him another video I took, a nine-second clip of the CBC walking from the Cannon Building, which I did not post originally as I thought the longer video had more action (and, as I stated earlier, this was before I'd heard the phony racial slur allegation). The video appears with others taken during that time on Larry O'Connor's story and accompanying video clip.
Despite the new video evidence, AP writer Jesse Washington has not followed up, McClatchy News Service has not given a retraction of the story, and members of the CBC such as Andre Washington, who claimed the word was chanted 15 times, have not apologized nor offered any proof that the alleged slurs actually happened. In fact, Brietbart TV has a recent video where CBC member Barbara Lee would not address the issue, only giving a vague "we're moving forward" answer.
In addition to the phony N-word claims, there were allegations by Cong. Emmanuel Cleaver that he was also spat upon. Video debunked this, and Cleaver later claimed he never made such an allegation.
It is to their utter shame that the so-called "mainstream media" has repeated and allowed this slander against the Tea Party to continue.
But there are other points to consider that counter the false claims of racism against the Tea Party.
In Florida, an true American hero named Allen West is being supported for Congress by the Tea Party. The Tea Party endorsed candidates in South Carolina--Tim Scott for Congress & Nikki Haley for Governor--both won victories in the primaries last month. West and Scott are black, and Haley is an Indian-American woman. Now, if the Tea Party really were a bunch of racists, as being alleged by the CBC, NAACP, and Obama's Lapdog Media, why would they support these candidates?
Slander is one thing and hypocrisy is another. I've mentioned also how the NAACP had chapters that defended Michael Vick, when the football star was investigated and later jailed for the barbaric and illegal "sport" called dogfighting. The organization also defended the victim in the Duke Lacrosse rape case, even after her story was found to be false. A member of the Missouri NAACP was caught on video calling Kenneth Gladney, a black man who was involved in the only known instance of racism at a tea party, an "uncle Tom," and implied Gladney wasn't black enough for the NAACP to support. Why? Gladney was selling Gadsden flags to Tea Party members when the (S)SEIU attacked him and called him the n-word.
But the NAACP's hypocrisy doesn't stop there, they participated in the recent canonization of the late Sen. Robert "Sheets" Byrd (D-KKK), upon the Senator's (as well as former KKK Kleagle and Exaulted Cyclops) recent death. The Hill published the following statement from, yes, Benjamin Jealous of the NAACP.
NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous saluted Byrd for his "transformative" life.One problem with that, Ben Jealous. Contrary to your statement, "Sheets" Byrd not only voted against the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the 1965 Voting Rights Act, he filibustered the 1964 Act based on the racist assumption that whites were superior to blacks, as the brain of a white person weighed a few grams more than that of a black person. Byrd was also heard on nationwide TV in 2001 talking about "white niggers."
“Senator Byrd went from being an active member of the KKK to a being a stalwart supporter of the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act and many other pieces of seminal legislation that advanced the civil rights and liberties of our country," Jealous said.
And yet an organization that honored a former Ku Klux Klan member and segregationist Senator has the audacity to call the Tea Party movement racist, while calling black conservatives "uncle Toms?"
The NAACP is in serious need of reevaluation of their group mission. Are they really for the advancement of blacks, or are they, like the modern feminist movement, only interested in promoting those with a far-Left agenda?
