NAACP RALLY SPEAKER: "For every casket and funeral in our [black] community, there should be a casket and funeral in the [white] enemy's community."
Racism?… What Racism?
Yesterday Big Government broke video of a USDA official, Shirley Sherrod, recounting for attendees at an NAACP awards dinner how she withheld help from a white farmer seeking the agency’s help in saving his farm. The crowd in attendance at the NAACP event was not fazed by the admission.
Shirley Sherrod resigned from her post last night after the the story broke.
Another clear example of NAACP racism occurred back in 2000 at the “Redeem the Dream” march and rally at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC.
David Horowitz at Front Page Magazine reported on this racist display at the Lincoln Memorial back in September 2000.
Sharpton’s event was held on August 26th at the Lincoln Memorial and was co-hosted by Martin Luther King III (just to make the connection). Its purpose was to commemorate the victory over government-enforced segregation in the South – and to claim, at the same time, that government racism was as big a problem as ever. One could hardly imagine a more embarrassing caricature of King’s triumph than this carnival of sham grievances (“Free Mumia!”) and double standards (white racists bad, black racists ok). Unlike Martin Luther King’s great march, which deliberately excluded the Nation of Islam, Sharpton’s platform embraced Farrakhan and other black promoters of racial hate. Speaker after speaker celebrated a totalitarian unity of the race – the NAACP and Farrakhan, the National Council of Negro Women and the “New Black Panthers.” There was even an “I Have A Black Dream” speech (in exactly those words), delivered by Malik Zulu Shabazz, the “Minister of Justice” of the new Panther Party whose national chairman is the raving anti-white, anti-Jew, anti-Catholic, anti-gay Khalid Muhammad. Zulu Shabazz’s “black dream” was that “for every casket and funeral in our community there should be a casket and funeral in the enemy’s community.”
Not only was there no reaction to thinly veiled incitements to race war, the message itself was not so different from the thematic slogan of the march: “No justice, no peace.” This is a threat of civil mayhem, which Sharpton has made his mantra (it flashes on his website, right above the photo of his booster, Bill Bradley www.nationalaction.net). A Farrakhan emissary named Ishmael Muhammad appeared at the podium to do a pale imitation of the master, who had sent his “Queen” to represent him. As boxing promoter Don King (introduced as “a philanthropist”) actually did sum it all up: “Only in America.”

It is interesting that a group with such a sordid past would promote bogus stories of racism to smear the tea party movement. Clearly the NAACP is no longer interested in civil rights as much they are in pushing a repugnant hard left agenda.
