War of words between NAACP, Tea Party escalates

.

.

MONTGOMERY – The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and the tea party have hurled accusations of racism at each other all week, sparking off a media frenzy that has made it difficult at times to keep track of the debate.

.


Reacting to overt racism by Tea Party activists – including an incident in March, when tea party demonstrators yelled racial slurs at and spat on African American law makers John Lewis, Andre Carson and Emanuel Cleaver – the NAACP approved a resolution accusing tea party activists of tolerating racist elements in their movement.

.

.

.



.





“Those niggers are big, fat liars,” said Scooter McPherson, Tea Party leader. “We only spit on two of them.”

.


Yesterday, the war of words escalated when Tea Party Express leader Mark Williams posted an imaginary letter to President Abraham Lincoln on his personal website that accused the NAACP of being racist for using the word “colored” in its name, and supporting lazy blacks who don’t want to work. The imaginary Lincoln suggested the NAACP change its acronym to mean “Now Apes Are Considered People.”

.

“You know why aspirin are prohibited in Obama’s health care legislation? Because they are white, and they work,”  Williams quipped.  Williams has accused President Obama of being a “half-white secret muslim racist.”


Other Tea Party leaders are concerned over continued conflict. “The average Tea Party activist doesn’t hate niggers,” said Tea Party organizer Mildred Kranch. “We just hate that a nigger is president.  We really, really hate that.”



“Black men in general cause us serious concerns, for obvious reasons.”

.


“We want our country back, and by that we mean a country with a white president.  Anyone who doesn’t understand that, and by anyone I mean the NAACP, is racist,” Kranch concluded..

    Therbs – “88” is code for “HH” – H being the eighth letter in the alphabet, which is code for “Heil Hitler” so 88 reveals himself to be a white supremacist. Alan Berg was a jewish Denver area talk radio host who was murdered by a group of neo nazis back in the 1980’s. The men who did it were in turn hunted down like animals and killed by US federal agents.

    So 88 was trying to scare me. I can’t say here what happens next.

  17. Paul, is it hoping too much that because Teabaggers are often such poor spellers that they would also make poor organizers to actually carry out their implied threats?

    On the upside, because Georgia is going through a gubernatorial primary, I now have a clear idea who not to vote for, because I’ve been getting robo-calls from Sarah Palin endorsing some candidates.

    But it must change, or else Ruby Ridge, Waco, Whidbey Island and MOVE in Philadelphia will happen over and over again. These tea party bigots are openly talking about exploring “Second Amendment solutions” if they don’t get what they want, which is code for gunning down those they don’t like as an act of rebellion against the federal government. What they don’t realize is that every single time that has happened, the federal government has crushed them without mercy. The US government often acts confused and buffoonish, but it has consistently followed a zero tolerance policy when it comes to armed rebellion since the Whiskey Insurrection.

  21. Paul, you left out Wounded Knee, the SLF, and every Black Panther assassination (oops, shootout) but your point remains. The whackos (Wacos?) become martyrs to the other whackos and the government appears like the oppressive monolith they make it out to be.

  22. Paul, allow me to clarify…I HOPE these folks are too stupid to organize into something of a violent rebellion. Do I think this? Not necessarily. I was just saying it out loud in the hopes that everyone would agree with me, and provide evidence to this hope, so that I can sleep well at night.

    I know full well how the Nazis came to power in Germany, and how they maintained that power, and it’s not from someone like Obama. It’s from those who used the scapegoat argument to treat other humans as lesser beings. So this does frighten me quite a bit.

    antic – I’m not worried about these people becoming martyrs to other whackos. I’m worried about them being hunted down and killed by our government. It is tragic every time it happens and each time it happens it makes it easier for the government to do.

    Steve – I need to clarify: I am not concerned about armed rebellion – organized or spontaneous. It isn’t going to happen. I am worried about the mistaken perception among ignorant, weak-minded people that armed rebellion is an option. Will it present an existential threat to our government? No. Will that mistaken perception get a lot of people killed? Yes.

    I’m not so sure it is going to work, mini. Remember that Obama was elected with the votes of white conservatives who were outraged that McCain picked Palin as his running mate and probable successor to the presidency when he died in office (which was very likely). White conservatives were disgusted by the kinds of people Palin attracted. These are the same people who now make up the Tea Party movement. I consider myself a conservative – even a Republican – and these people sure as hell disgust me. They represent everything that is wrong with America. They are proud of their ignorance and lack of education. They can’t think beyond their fingertips, which they count on whenever they have to do simple math. They do not comprehend how the world really works – and they yearn for the world of 1950, when women and minorities knew their place.

    The more they say and do the more obvious that they need to be stopped, and the only way to stop them is to support anyone – and I mean anyone who is running against one of their candidates – like that Angle women in Nevada. I cannot stand Reid. I cannot stand his politics. But I loath and fear his crazy, moronic opponent more. When the choice is between crazy/stupid and intelligent/liberal, we have no choice but to vote liberal because the wreckage Bush left behind showed us the dangers of electing stupid people to high office.

    You know what’s going on? I’ll tell you what’s going on. Racist white people are scared that black and brown people will use their growing electoral majority to take over the government and use it to benefit black and brown people, which is what white people have been doing all these years. All the shouting and signs and racism comes from their fear that Obama is going to raise their taxes so that the government can give money to lazy black people and illegal Mexican immigrants. That is what the “No Amnesty” signs mean. That drives them nuts with fear. And that is what is going on. To them Jim Crow was never dead, but with Obama’s election they know Jim Crow is dead and gone for good, and they can’t stand the thought of it. I think you’re right about it not working. They can yell and scream and spit on anyone they want but it won’t work. The American People won’t let those racists take control again. it is just too late for that.

  37. Well, this scares the hell out of me. The paragraph about Jews being “Unholy” and “Seeds of Satan” is pure Nazi blood. I understand people may not like Jews, and if they keep it to themselves I (and a lot of other people it seems) don’t mind. But when they right about it like that, I get real scared and really angry real fast. I almost never see anything about Christians, I’m not saying everyone likes Christians, or other religions, but I almost never see anything about them. Why do some people hate Jews? What did we do to them? I just don’t understand. And maybe I shouldn’t be writing this if I don’t understand. But I figure maybe someone could answer this question for me.

    I’m not Jewish, Ellie, but I’ve met quite a number of anti-semites over the years. Modern anti-semitism has its roots in medieval Europe. Hatred for Jews was encouraged for a wide variety of reasons, most of which are no longer relevant. But hate is taught, handed down from father and mother to son and daughter. Anyone who hates Jews and believes they control the media or are secretly running the world probably had an ancestor who hated Jews and taught that hatred to his her kids, and on and on down through the ages. I know it doesn’t make sense, but it is real. I don’t think that someone who is Jewish who is outside of a predominantly Jewish community can really feel safe. It used to be that way for Greek and Irish immigrants, too (I come from both), but prejudice against the Irish and Greeks was never institutionalized in the same way anti-semitism was institutionalized. That makes it harder to overcome.
