One might think that calls for the lynching of one of the most prominent African-Americans in public life would be right up the NAACP’s alley, but no: when the African-American in question is a Republican, the NAACP is AWOL:
The NAACP won’t directly address the racism displayed by progressive protesters outside a summit hosted by billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch at the end of January in Palm Springs, Calif., but the organization did call for an end to all “vitriolic language.”
In response to The Daily Caller’s request for comment on a video showing progressive protesters calling for somebody to “string up” African American Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, or “send him back into the fields” or “cut off all his toes and feed them to him one-by-one,” NAACP spokesman Hilary Shelton pointed to the organization’s recent resolution calling for a “civil political discourse.” …
Shelton would not, however, address the content of the video directly.
Of course not. The racists in the video are Democrats. This reminds me of the time when Jesse Jackson was asked to come out against slavery, and the response from his office was “Right now slavery is not on his agenda.” Of course not. There’s no money in opposing it.
These people, like others in the party to which they have sold out, have zero credibility.
