When the NAACP stands up and explains why they:
A) lobbied the Obama White House to dismiss voter intimidation charges against the thugs of the New Black Panther Party
B) oppose the 21st century school choice movement to free poor minority students from rotten government schools
C) choose "diversity" above academic study as its primary education goal
D) are pushing our country back to the pre-civil rights era using race-based classification
E) can explain the racist sneers and smears like those leveled by the St. Louis NAACP chapter against black limited-government activist Kenneth Gladney, who was labeled by civil rights leaders as an "Uncle Tom" after he was beaten bloody by Service Employees International Union henchmen last summer
Then and only then will their claim of “racists” among the tea partiers seem like a valid claim, problem is there has been no proof of any of the claims brought forward.
Every group has a few loose cannons and I’m sure there are a few in some tea parties. I personally have not seen one. I witnessed a sign at a town hall meeting showing Obama as Hitler with the little mustache, but it was being carried by a young black man.
Obama says we need to talk about racism in this country. This was Pat Buchanan’s response:
“Barack says we need to have a conversation about race in America... Fair enough. But this time, it has to be a two-way conversation... White America needs to be heard from, not just lectured to... This time, the Silent Majority needs to have its convictions, grievances and demands heard. And among them are these:
First, America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known. Rev. Wright ought to go down on his knees and thank God he is an American.
Second, no people anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than white Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the '60s on welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the African-American community into the mainstream.
Governments, businesses and colleges have engaged in discrimination against white folks -- with affirmative action, contract set-asides and quotas -- to advance black applicants over white applicants. Churches, foundations, civic groups, schools and individuals all over America have donated their time and money to support soup kitchens, adult education, day care, retirement and nursing homes for blacks.
We hear the grievances.
Where is the gratitude??
Barack talks about new 'ladders of opportunity' for blacks. Let him go to Altoona and Johnstown, and ask the white kids in Catholic schools how many were visited lately by Ivy League recruiters handing out scholarships for 'deserving' white kids…
Is white America really responsible for the fact that the crime and incarceration rates for African-Americans are seven times those of white America? Is it really white America's fault that illegitimacy in the African-American community has hit 70 percent and the black dropout rate from high schools in some cities has reached 50 percent?
Is that the fault of white America or, first and foremost, a failure of the black community itself
As for racism, its ugliest manifestation is in interracial crime, and especially interracial crimes of violence. Is Barack Obama aware that while white criminals choose black victims 3 percent of the time, black criminals choose white victims 45 percent of the time?
Is Barack aware that black-on-white rapes are 100 times more common than the reverse, that black-on-white robberies were 139 times as common in the first three years of this decade as the reverse?
We have all heard ad nauseam from the Rev. Al Sharpton about Tawana Brawley, the Duke rape case and Jena which all turned out to be hoaxes. But about the epidemic of black assaults on whites that are real, we hear nothing.
Sorry, Barack, some of us have heard it all before, about 40 years and 40 trillion tax dollars ago”
Pat makes some great points in this speech and he backs them with facts and the truth. When the NAACP or the NBPP can do that, maybe they will have a leg to stand on.
