The Truth About The NAACP
While it should be a priority of the Republican Party to try to invite more black Americans in, it’s a waste of time to try to reach out to black voters through the NAACP. In fact, the NAACP should be treated like persona non gratis by everyone in the GOP. That means Republicans shouldn’t say anything nice about them, should frequently criticize them, shouldn’t meet with them, and certainly shouldn’t be willing to give speeches at their events.
If you don’t buy that, just look at NAACP Chairman Julian Bond’s latest comments:
“Civil rights activist and NAACP Chairman Julian Bond delivered a blistering partisan speech at Fayetteville State University in North Carolina last night, equating the Republican Party with the Nazi Party and characterizing Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and her predecessor, Colin Powell, as “tokens.”
“The Republican Party would have the American flag and the swastika flying side by side,” he charged.
Calling President Bush a liar, Bond told the audience at the historically black institution that this White House’s lies are more serious than the lies of his predecessor’s because Clinton’s lies didn’t kill people.
“We now find ourselves refighting old battles we thought we had already won,” he said. “We have to fight discrimination whenever it raises its ugly head.”
He referred to former Attorney General John Ashcroft as J. Edgar Ashcroft. He compared Bush’s judicial nominees to the Taliban.”
Let’s call it like it is: Julian Bond is a crackpot and the NAACP is full of race hustling poverty pimps who are only still powerful and influential today, more than 30 years after their glory days have passed, because they help convince black voters to pull the lever en masse for white, liberal Democrats.
That’s the unvarnished truth about the NAACP and more Republicans should be willing to say so.
