* Hmmmm, I set out to write a different post here. Fortunately I like to go to the primary source.
The NAACP passed a resolution about the Tea Party I’ve been reading about.
I invite readers to check out the link. See in particular:
“The proposed resolution had generated controversy on conservative blogs, where in some cases the language has been misconstrued to imply that the NAACP was condemning the entire Tea Party movement itself as racist.”
They are quite correct. That is exactly what I’ve been reading, when in fact the resolution merely asks the movement to condemn “racist elements within the Tea Party.” The NAACP is often hypersensitive to “racism,” seeing it where it isn’t intended, but no they didn’t say the whole Tea Party was racist and certain conservative bloggers and columnists should be more careful.
The NAACP statement however does say, “In March, respected members of the Congressional Black Caucus reported that racial epithets were hurled at them as they passed by a Washington, DC health care protest…”
I believe that’s been pretty well debunked. There was a plethora of recording equipment in the crowd, and not one racial epithet has been found in any recording.
And you can be damn sure if it had been it would be all over the airwaves!
* A courageous whistle blower at Obama’s Justice Department has however revealed a pervasive pattern of racism by DOJ officials.
J. Christian Adams, a career attorney in the Justice Department’s Voting Rights Division until he resigned to go public, testified under oath July 6 before the U.S. Civil Rights Commission in the matter of two armed and uniformed members of the New Black Panther Party intimidating voters at Philadelphia’s Fairmount Street precinct on Election Day, Nov. 4, 2008.
You may recall that Attorney General Eric Holder dismissed the case against King Samir Shabazz and Jerry Jackson, after it had already been won by a default judgement when the defendants didn’t bother to show up at their hearing.
Just this once I’m going to pull a Michael Moore and start a sentence with, “I wonder if…” (As we say in Oklahoma, I know it’s wrong – but I’m weak.)
I wonder if they didn’t bother to show up because they knew they had nothing to worry about?
Adams also testified Deputy Assistant Attorney General Julie Fernandes last November instructed prosecutors not to enforce the law which requires local officials remove from the rolls voters who are ineligible because they have moved, are convicted felons, or just plain dead.
According to Adams, Fernandez said, “We have no interest in enforcing this provision of the law. It has nothing to do with increasing turnout, and we are just not going to do it.”
“I was told by Voting Section management that cases are not going to be brought against black defendants on the benefit of white victims,” Adams said.
* Over the past several years I’ve observed things which I think add up to a pattern. Bear with me for a moment, then call me crazy if you like.
Election manipulation: In addition to the above-cited example, consider the ACORN follies, the Franken election looking more and more like it was stolen after the discovery of a few thousand ineligible felons on the Minnesota rolls (Franken won after a suspicious recount put him ahead by around 300 votes,) legal challenges to laws requiring voter ID. Not to mention pushing union card check with all the potential for intimidation that entails.
Name calling: The efforts to paint the TEA Party and the Right in general as dangerous extremists, when the history of political violence in this country over the past two generations is overwhelmingly on the Left. This of course includes attempts to dehumanize the opposition by attaching hateful labels such as “racist.”
(See “name calling” under propaganda techniques.”)
Outright violence: SEIU goons beat an African-American man demonstrating at a St. Louis townhall meeting. A man and woman were beaten in New Orleans after leaving the Southern Republican Leadership Conference dinner at Brennan’s Restaurant.
(Michelle Malkin says evidence for a political motive is murky in this case – though robbery was pretty obviously not the motive since there was no attempt to rob the victims. She does offer a list of confirmed cases of politically motivated violence.)
I think it adds up to an interview.
The Hard Left (and no I don’t mean generic “liberals,” I mean the totalitarian Left that sometimes sails under that flag) cannot come to power without hiding their true intentions (by pretending to be merely liberal for example) and certainly cannot stay in power in honest elections when their true intentions become manifest. Their program for a controlled economy and social engineering to produce the “right kind” of people just doesn’t fly with most Americans.
But in a democratic system, any group which is willing to use violence has a weighted vote – if they can get away with it. You could call it “the Sinn Fein/IRA lesson.”
It looks to me like we’re in the early stages of an “escalating interview” on a national scale.
“Escalating – Unlike a hot interview, which starts out immediately hostile, an escalating interview starts out normally but it rapidly turns hostile. The person or people test(s) your boundaries by escalating outrageous behavior. Every time he is not slapped down (i.e., he is successful), his behavior becomes more and more extreme until finally he attacks.”
