NAACP, Obama, and Democrats attack tea party
By Jim Kouri

A much heralded resolution by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People — labeled by some as the Democrat Party plantation overseers — denigrating the Tea Party movement as racist, is probably the epitome of hypocrisy by an organization that claims its mission is to protect and help African-Americans.

Echoing the allegations of racism within the ranks of the Tea Party, Democrats and their news media hacks jumped at the opportunity to attack patriotic Americans with the last tool at their disposal. Recall the joke often told by conservatives:

Question: What do you call a conservative winning a debate with a liberal?
Answer: A racist.

Of course, these are the same people — the Obama Administration included — who gave a pass to the New Black Panthers for their voter intimidation caught on camera in Philadelphia. They are the same people who remain silent over a Black Panther calling for the indiscriminate killing of "cracker" babies and whites, also caught on video.

The NAACP and their puppetmasters in Washington, DC were also silent when an African-American Tea Party participant was beaten by union thugs from another Obama goon squad — the Service Employees Internation Union or SEIU.

The biggest display of hypocrisy, however, was the sickening display during the memorial service for the late Senator Robert Byrd. Recall this statement by Sen. Byrd:

"I shall never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side... Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds." - Robert Byrd in letter to Mississippi Senator Theodore Bilbo in 1944.

Byrd began his career in Washington in 1952 with his election to the House. His elevation to the Senate came six years later. Political critics have denigrated him as a professional politician with no real world experience, but the denizens of the mainstream media practically genuflect at the mention of his name.

His Democrat colleagues have elected him to more leadership positions than any senator in history. He has cast more than 18,000 votes and has a nearly 98 percent attendance record over the course of his career.

Well-respected by the Democrat Party and liberals, Byrd is often given a "pass" on his affiliation with a white supremacist group. Senator Byrd served as an active member of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) attaining the offices of Kleagle (recruiter) and Exalted Cyclops. Bill Clinton, that paragon of truth, spoke of Byrd's KKK history as the indiscretions of a young man. Byrd fought the Civil Rights Act in the Senate when he was 44 years old, hardly the age of a confused young man.

Byrd joined the KKK when he was 24 in 1942. His local chapter unanimously elected him the top officer of their unit.

According to Byrd, a Klan official told him, "You have a talent for leadership, Bob... The country needs young men like you in the leadership of the nation." Byrd later recalled, "Suddenly lights flashed in my mind! Someone important had recognized my abilities! I was only 23 or 24 years old, and the thought of a political career had never really hit me. But strike me that night, it did."

"I shall never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side... Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds."

— Robert C. Byrd, in a letter to Sen. Theodore Bilbo (D-MS), 1944

"He's our champion," West Virginia Gov. Joe Manchin said upon hearing of Byrd's death. "Our prayers are with him."

But the media prefers to attack and attack and attack the Tea Party and patriots. And to do it they obtain the assistance of bogus leaders such as Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and others who are called "poverty pimps" by conservative blacks such as Dr. Walter Williams and Dr. Thomas Sowell.
