Fighting Back Against the Narrative: Tea Parties Pre-emptively Strike Back Against NAACP

Share

As we discussed yesterday, the NAACP planned to condemn the Tea Parties for racism (And they did).  They are continuing the narative started by leftist organizations, and perpetuated by false claims from both the Democratic Party and the MSM.  The St Louis Tea Party organizqation, however, chose not to stand by and be smeared.

A Tea Party group in Missouri, reacting to the NAACP’s plan to take up a resolution branding the conservative movement as “racist,” has drafted a resolution of its own condemning the civil rights group for reducing itself to a “bigoted” and “partisan attack dog organization.”

In a matter of hours, the St. Louis group drafted and fired off to the NAACP a resolution demanding the organization withdraw its “bigoted, false and inflammatory” statement. The missive accused the NAACP of resorting to political tactics and urged the IRS to reconsider whether it can continue to qualify for tax-exempt status.

Tea Party organizers routinely defend themselves against charges of racism, disavowing racially charged signs that appear in their protest crowds and provide fodder for Tea Party critics. The NAACP resolution, first reported by the Kansas City Star, was expected to make reference to an incident in March when Tea Party protesters allegedly hurled racial epithets at black lawmakers on Capitol Hill ahead of a health care vote. Tea Party members afterward challenged that account and no evidence was produced to show any racist attacks.

St. Louis Tea Party organizer Bill Hennessy wrote on the group’s website Tuesday that the Tea Party stands for smaller government and fiscal responsibility, and accused the NAACP of abandoning black America.

“When you look at the crime and poverty and family breakdown of the African-American community … you see a half-century of failure by the NAACP,” he wrote. “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.

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

In their brief statement, the St. Louis Tea Party leadership gave more evidence of liberal failure than the NAACP can present of racism.

My take is that the left is going to go flat out on this narrative in order to keep the people, and particularly, African Americans and Latinos from taking a look at the Tea Party or Conservatives.  This is consistent with attacking the messenger.  If an individual or a group is “racist,” then what they have to say can be disregarded.  After all, why listen to those bad folks?  The why is simple; they left derives power and votes by keeping their client groups in a state of dependency.  They fill people with fear and doubt, causing them to believe that without the “progressives,”  those nasty, racist, white folks will certainly destroy them.  They separate us all be race and class to maintain this illusion.  They don’t want the African American community to realize that they have been held back by the left.  They want them to miss the fact that liberal policies have destroyed the family unit and the community.  They want them to ignore the terrible schools, and the fact that we want to end the public school monopoly that leads so many African Americans to be illiterate and in poverty.  They especially don’t want them finding their voices and power as individuals.  After all, they can’t have their client groups leaving the “government  plantation,” can they?

In the end, the White House, the Democtaric Party, all of the Soros funded organizations, the NAACP, and the MSM can keep repeating the smear, but on a larger scale,  it won’t stick.  They can make the accusations without a single shred of evidence, and we’ll keep on posting videos of Black Panthers.  We’ll see who the public believes.

    Glad to see they’re fighting back, conservatives definitely need to fight back and go on the front foot against the left. We shouldn’t have to do this all the time, but these are the cards we are dealt.

      I agree. They might as well point out the hypocrisy.

    I am aslo glad to see them fighting back, it seems that all too often these false charges of racism scare away the people they charges are made against. While they know they are not true, they still don’t want to be labeled a racist so they back down, but not in this case, this is great news!

      Yeah, that’s why I picked the image for the post. That is what the NAACP is trying, might as well fight back.

    The jokers at the NAACP aren’t releasing their “resolution” until October. Oh, the intrigue!

    My answer back is “liar, prove it.”

    I really believe there is a push for Black Power on the horizon, or maybe closer – just around the corner.

      I do love how they say things as if they were true, yet have not a single shred of evidence.

      And they wonder why the MSM is losing viewers by the millions?

    This is starting to become a very hot button topic at my place of employment Matt. More and more people are becoming tired of being accused of racism for disagreeing with a policy. i have been asked by a number of co-workers to address this subject. I’m telling you Matt, be are starting to push back and I say good for them. Good for the Tea Party group in St Louis.

      For too long, people have backed down one the race card is played. Here is my response.

      As I have said. For everything, there is a YouTube video.
