Black Tea Partiers Called “Sell Out Negroes” Who “Wish They Were White” At NAACP Convention

If you’re black, then you’re supposed to subscribe to liberal dogma. There is no thinking for your self, apparently.

I don’t understand why so many on the left feel threatened by minorities who are conservative. The left either likes to ignore the presence of minorities in the conservative/tea party/libertarian ranks, or else accuse the minorities in those movements of being sell-outs. Or unauthentic, though I’m not sure how anyone can fail to authentically be whatever ethnicity they are just by thinking a certain way.

Really, I think the left feels threatened by conservatives who are something other than Caucasian because it throws a monkey wrench in the narrative. The fall-back talking point for the left is that the limited government movement motivated by racism and/or a desire to keep the poor, downtrodden masses poor and downtrodden. But if blacks, for instance, are a part of the limited government movement too then the race card isn’t nearly as effective.

It’s hard to accuse a movement of being racist when it’s inclusive of all races.

There’s something exploitative in it too, though. See, blacks and other minorities are seen, inherently, as victims by the left to be exploited for political gain by both politicians and organizations like the NAACP alike. But if the minorities stop seeing themselves as victims, the NAACP and the liberal politicians will lose chunks of their power base.

The minorities can’t be allowed to wander off the liberal plantation, to put it another way, which is why minorities who do are so viciously attacked. For what it’s worth, I don’t think your skin color has to dictate what you think.

      By definition, the NAACP is a racist organization.

        Just pointing out that they also carry on the old black-on-black racist tradition, a tradition that fits in well with their special place on the Liberal Plantation.

    More evidence that the left is rabidly racist.

    • Rob

      I don’t know about rabidly, but certainly there’s an element in racism in thinking that your skin color should dictate how you think.

    Those Progressives sure are tolerant souls. I’m surprised they weren’t railing on about lynching the AA TEA Party members like they do when they talk about Clarence Thomas.

    • flamemeister

      I frequently wonder what exactly keeps the Progressives from go back to lynching as a political tool.  If the figurative lynchings they mete out to blacks who stray off the Liberal Plantation cease to work, we may see some Strange Fruit hangin’ from the poplars.

        The government is far too transparent for them to get away with that, but they’re working on that little problem.

  • borborygmi

    natives have the same problem.  I have an employee who has been ostracized from the Rez because he is working and not claiming any payment from the gov’t.   A traitor to the nation.   Shameful

    • flamemeister

      Indeed. A great deal of repressed shame is involved.

    • Rob

      That’s sad.

    i LOVE guys like this. the DIRECT questions and accusations kick ass! all fluff and no facts. this is a GREAT chance for the tea party to say ‘youre wrong on so many levels. in fact, wed love for you to join us to learn and you might find out you are a conservative.’

    if nothing comes from him personally, his message can be used to spread the facts around.

    Black on black racism is nothing new.  Look at what tribal groups do to each other in Africa even today.  Growing up in Detroit I would see a lot of it when members of the black community got ahead financially through hard work and thrift, their less prosperous members would ostracize them for being “uppity” and “oreos” and all the other epithets they are wont to hurl at each other.  People like Sowell, West, Rice, Lauren Greene, and many more (too many to list) are no longer welcome in the folds of the NAACP and the poverty pimping race-baiters ranks of the Sharpton’s, Jackson’s and Wright’s of the world.

    Oh come on Rob you know why the Left is afraid of right leaning minorities.   If the minority vote was split anywhere near white levels the Democrats would no longer be a viable national party.

    • Rob

      Ha, fair point.

    You think Jamaica is bad, try the Communist island paradise of Cuba sometime.  They wouldn’t even let you in the lobby to complain, and if you did, you might be quickly whisked off to a re-education facility.
