I condemn the NAACP. They have allowed a small group of hard-left extremists to use the group’s past prestige to smear the diverse assemblage of Americans who comprise the tea party movement. They call the tea parties and allied organizations racists because they have become a powerful force of peaceful political dissent against our ever-overreaching government.
These extremists are using the NAACP’s historical name as a foil to obtain and retain power while indignities directed against fellow blacks disagreeing with their policies and tactics seem to be encouraged. They provide cover for their fellow progressives at the peril of fostering racism, division and class warfare.
To label peaceful political dissent as racists is akin to the behavior of the segregationists who once labeled the peaceful dissent lead by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as troublemaking. The founders of the NAACP must be rolling in their graves at the thought that dissent against an unfair system is now considered a reason for NAACP condemnation.
This resolution will do nothing more than reinforce the truth that the NAACP is the playground for partisan progressives with an extremist agenda.
