Though Scott will now be the only black Senator in the Senate, that status doesn't excite the civil wrongs organization known as the NAACCP (National Association for the Advancement of (Certain) Colored People).
From the Daily Caller:
Hilary Shelton, senior vice president for advocacy and policy at the NAACP, told The Daily Caller Monday afternoon that the group welcomed diversity in the Senate, but expects the new senator to work against the NAACP’s agenda.Isn't this the problem with the NAACCP's aversion to Scott? They've been so invested in pushing a far-Left agenda, and trying to make the Obama Regime a success that they've joined in on the slander of the Tea Party with false allegations of racism. But you look at how Scott, Allen West, Gov. Haley (an Indian American), Ted Cruz (Hispanic) are Tea Party favorites, and that puts the kabash on the lie that the Tea Party is a bunch of racists in white hoods.
“It is important that we have more integration in the U.S. Senate,” said Shelton in a phone interview. “It’s good to see that diversity.”
“Mr. Scott certainly comes from a modest background, experience, and so forth, and should be sensitive to those issues,” he said, referring to Scott’s impoverished single-parent upbringing in Charleston, SC.
“Unfortunately, his voting record in the U.S. House of Representatives raises major concerns,” Shelton said.
Scott, Shelton said, would likely work against that agenda, favoring instead the “small government” posture of Ronald Reagan and that president’s Secretary of Education, William Bennett.
Smaller government also means less federal assistance for housing and signals an abandoning of civil rights regulations as enforced by the Justice Department, Shelton said, highlighting the Department’s crackdown on what he called “anti-immigration” laws across the country.
Scott “has demonstrated a record of opposition to civil rights protection and advancing those real issues of concern of the NAACP’s noted African-American community,” Shelton added.
...In 2010, Scott responded to allegations of racism in the tea party, telling CBN News, “There are good people and bad people in all organizations fundamentally however, when you look at the basis of the Tea Party it has nothing to do with race. It has to do with an economic recovery.”
“Certainly I feel like I’m the tip of the arrow at times because certainly the national media wants to talk about the fact that I’m a black Republican and some people think of that as zany that a black person would be a conservative but to me what is zany is any person black, white, red, brown or yellow not being a conservative,” Scott said then.
But judging from Tweets from liberals, you can see the real racism is from the Left. With the "token" and "Uncle Ruckus" slurs on Twitter, liberals who brag about their "tolerance" and "diversity" sound like a bunch of rednecks at a Klavern Kampfire. Why? Because Scott left the liberal's victimization plantation and thinks for himself. Liberal groupthink does not allow for individual thought.
Thus the real danger to the NAACCP is that Scott could inspire some in the black community to look more closely at the Tea Party and conservatism, and decide they want to empower themselves. It's the same principle with how strong conservative women like Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann are a threat to the feminazis. Thinking for yourself is not allowed in the liberal community, and the last thing that supposed civil rights organizations and feminazi groups want are their constituencies empowered to make their own decisions, thus leaving the liberal victimization plantation.
