NAACP Plays The Race Card Wrongly

Here at, you can scroll down to see a long list of respected and prominent African-Americans condemning the NAACP for their bigoted attack on the TEA Party movement. These men and women risk being attacked by the Left for their views and support, yet they've bravely spoken up in defense of of unity over divisiveness and true equality for all. I proudly support their efforts to drag the NAACP out of the mire of leftist victimhood and returned to its admirable origin as an organization fighting for the rights of all Americans.

It's also a good way to visually demonstrate the monstrosity of big government with it's bazillion layers of bureaucracy, waste, inefficiency . . . and it's always teachers and police who are laid off first to save the state or city money (that they then over-pay to people who watch porn all day long instead of doing their jobs).
