Hah! Far Left Lapdogs NAACP Backs Gay Marriage

Hah! This far left group will stop at nothing to support Obama…

The former rights group, the NAACP, backed gay marriage today.
The Politico reported:

The board of the NAACP, one of the nation’s oldest and largest African American advocacy organizations, has passed a resolution supporting gay marriage in the wake of President Obama’s public endorsement of same-sex unions.

“The mission of the NAACP has always been to ensure the political, social and economic equality of all people,” board chair Roslyn M. Brock said in a statement following passage of the resolution on Saturday. “We have and will oppose efforts to codify discrimination into law.”

The chairman emeritus, Julian Bond, had already pledged his support earlier this week as part of a coalition of black leaders trying to tamp down speculation that Obama’s support of gay marriage would divide the black community.

The resolution and statement Saturday specifically noted that the group supports “civil marriage” for same sex couples, while respecting religious freedom — something the president also mentioned when announcing his stance.

“Civil marriage is a civil right and a matter of civil law,” NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous said in the statement. “The NAACP’s support for marriage equality is deeply rooted in the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution and equal protection of all people.”

This ought to go over well with their members.

    I wonder if the Einsteins at the NAACP can point out where “gay marriage” is located at in the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

    Just wondering.

    Good for them!

    And I thought you teabaggers believed in small government. Who is the government to tell gay folks they can’t get married.

    Oh wait I forgot…..JESUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Reverend billy-bob said Jesus hates “the gays” so we must oppose them or suffer hell.

    One side needs a new tactic.

    Separation of church and state.
    The state has no right in marriage as that is holy union in the Bible and the state is promoting religion when it talks about marriage or even approving of it. Same sex or any sex.

    That cry does not seam to be anywhere when marriage in involved, They must be to busy looking for 100 year old crosses on pubic memorial to have removed.

    #7 – allow sexually active gay men to donate blood? You’re a fool. They are not discriminated against or singled out. There is actually a very long list of folks who are not allowed to donate blood:

    anyone who has sex with gay males or multiple partners, male or female
    anyone who has spent more than a certain amount of time outside the US or visited certain countries
    anyone with a tatoo or piercings other than ears
    anyone who has ever had a long list of diseases other than AIDS
    anyone with a blood hematocrit below a certain level
    IV drug users

    And there are others – those are just the ones I remember off the top of my head

    The rules are there for the protection of everyone. It isn’t just a matter of AIDS. There are many other blood borne diseases – hepatitis, malaria, a bunch of other stuff.

    Rev. Wright Urged to Stay Silent Until After 2012 (More from Ed Klein tapes)

    Rev. Jeremiah Wright, whose “God damn America” sermon set off a firestorm during the 2008 campaign, agreed not to publish an account of the episode until after President Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign, according to an interview Wright conducted with the author of a new book on Obama. Wright said he made the decision at the urging of a friend and mentor, the prominent University of Chicago emeritus professor Martin Marty.

    In the interview, Wright told Ed Klein, author of The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House, that he keeps a cardboard box of documents and notes detailing his experiences beginning in March 2008, when the controversy over his sermons began. “It’s a painful box to look at,” Wright said.

    “Marty had me over to his home for dinner in January [2010],” Wright told Klein. “He said to me, ‘Are you keeping notes on what’s happened to you in this Obama campaign?’ I said, ‘Yes, sir, I am.’ He said, ‘Don’t publish it until after the next election. They’ll think it’s sour grapes. Wait until after 2012.'”

    It was at that point, Wright told Klein, that he decided to leave the box untouched, at least for now. “I don’t look at the box,” Wright said. “I haven’t looked at it since I’ve been to Marty’s house.”

    “[Marty] said, ‘Don’t write that until after 2012,” Wright said. “I said, ‘I’m not.’ [He said] ‘Don’t publish it.’ [I said] ‘I’m not.’ I haven’t even looked at it. I’ve just put all of it in one box and said I would get to it later.”

    Wright’s description of his discussion with Marty is not included in the Klein book. But Klein, through his public relations representative, made the audio of his entire two-hour-and-forty-five minute interview with Wright available to The Washington Examiner.

    What is gay marriage anyhow? Two people of the same sex living together? Since when did two sodomites a marriage make? The same goes for lesbians. You can’t take the definition of marriage – the union between a man and a woman – and somehow apply it to something totally different and still call it marriage.

    http://pamshouseblend.firedoglake.com/2009/07/13/naacp-president-on-marriage-equality-we-dont-take-a-position-on-that-nationally/

    NAACP President on marriage equality, “we don’t take a position on that nationally.

    The NAACP is celebrating its 100th year as the nation’s oldest, largest and most widely recognized civil rights organization, and it was expected that some LGBT-related issues would be addressed, specifically marriage equality and HIV/AIDS prevention, would come up during its national conference (July 11-16) and in discussions with the MSM as the org marks its centennial in New York.

    Looking over the 96-page program, there is no session specifically addressing the issue of LGBT rights, though Barney Frank shows up for a session on “Advancing Big Dreams, Securing Bold Victories: Advocating the NAACP’s Federal Legislative and National Public Policy Agenda to Congress.” There is also a panel today on “The Great Silence: The Impact of HIV/AIDS on African American Women,” clearly providing an opening to discuss homosexuality, bisexuality, and denial and lack of safer sex practices in the community that has caused infections to skyrocket. One can only hope that some honest discussion will take place. BTW, one of the artists to serenade the conventioneers during the Gospel extravaganza is the evangelical, anti-gay recording duo Mary Mary (more on them here). President Obama will speak to the group on Thursday.

    Often seen as irrelevant by the younger generation of black activists, the NAACP selected Benjamin Todd Jealous to serve as its 17th president and CEO, the youngest person to hold the position in the organization. {..}

    The Movement
    Obama’s Atrocities
    by David Bossie
    When President Obama made the declaration last week that his stance on same-sex marriage had “evolved” into supporting it, the New York Times called me up to see what the conservative movement thought about Obama’s evolution. I said to the reporter, “Add it to the list of atrocities.”

    Abortions, come one come all, Contraception, come one come all, Gay marriage just fine, too.

    In just a matter of months. Now, just think what Obama can evolve into with another 4 years.

  • Multitude

    Teamansam, many in the Tea Party understand a big word called ‘etymology’. It has to do with the history of words and is quite important respective to the production of meaning. As the Tea Party is the becoming of multitude, a connection of one of the first decentralized revolutions against the British imperial sovereign, combined with the decentralized conceptions that came following May ’68, we understand these things are probably confusing to plantation sharecroppers such as yourself.

    The word ‘marriage’ really has no business being co-opted by the sovereign. It has many thousands of years of meaning, which specifically refers to a male-female union. Contrary to your foolish viewpoint, there was no such thing as a ‘gay’ marriage for all of documented history. Many teabaggers (one who gladly signifies his dominance by placing his intellectual prowess in the mouth of an Obama tool like yourself) are quite comfortable with:

    1. Keeping marriage defined as “male-female religious union.”
    2. Keeping the government out of unions. Why do we need Obama to recognize a union between two individuals as meaningful? Do you know how creepy that is? Sign a contract. I don’t care if it’s two men, women, man/women, five men, whatever.

    The reality is that this isn’t about unions and partner contract rights. It’s not about women’s health care. This is a war by the Atheist faith against all others. Incidentally, it will be amusing to see how Islam responds to your brazen attack on its principles, with Obama forcing Islamic chaplains in the military to perform gay marriages.

    Obama is not a Christian but the more Axelrod tweets the more he may just do himself and Obama in for good.

    I have noticed that Axelrod is trying his best to stir up the right. Fortunately, no one is taking the bait.

    But for an adviser to the President to tweet and to believe these things, if one of the immorality and disrespectful things to not only us but sacrilegious in the eyes of the Church.

    Article from Charles Krauthammer

    {..}

    No wonder that Obama has been trying to get away from the issue as quickly as possible. It’s not just the New York Times poll showing his new position to be a net loser. It’s that he is too intelligent not to realize he’s embraced a logical contradiction.

    Moreover, there is the problem of the obvious cynicism of his conversion. Two-thirds of Americans see his “evolution” as a matter not of principle but of politics. In fact, the change is not at all an evolution — a teleological term cleverly chosen to suggest movement toward a higher state of being — given that Obama came out for gay marriage 16 years ago. And then flip-flopped.

    He was pro when running for the Illinois Legislature from ultra-liberal Hyde Park. He became anti when running eight years later for U.S. senator and had to appeal to a decidedly more conservative statewide constituency. And now he’s pro again.

    When a Republican engages in such finger-to-the-wind political calculation (on abortion, for example), he’s condemned as a flip-flopper. When a liberal goes through a similar gyration, he’s said to have “evolved” into some more highly realized creature, deserving of a halo on the cover of a national newsmagazine.

    Notwithstanding a comically fawning press, Obama knows he has boxed himself in. His “rights” argument compels him to nationalize same-sex marriage and sharpen hostility to proponents of traditional marriage — a place he is loath to go.

    True, he was rushed into it by his loquacious vice president. But surely he could have thought this through.

    Please read more it is very interesting.

    Of course they do! They are getting paid to agree with me! Everybody in my administration loves to have a butt boy in the morning.

    Even as young man editing the Harvard Review, Barney Frank and I used to get juiced and drive to the Arlington Cemetery during Veterans Day and swip one of those little crappy flags. Then Barney would put it in his tale pipe and waive it around until I plucked it out and gave him a wedgie. Those drunken Harvard days were the best.

    With the NAACP behind the gay marriage thing I think Barney Frank can now tie the knot with his man. I will be there for the all male bachelor party! I will put it on the tax payer’s tab! They will never notice. Ha ha!

    My limousine is running and Barney Frank is in the back seat. It is a proud day for America with you can openly have a gay bachelor party with flags flying from Barney’s tail pipe. I cannot answer any more questions. Good day.

    …..there are also 32 states now that have opposed same sex marriage.

    the majority is clearly against so to run on it for as long as he’ll do….
    is a killer for him. …but the only reason he is for this is he is
    desperate for donations: wealthy will not contribute to his re-election now
    so he tries his appeal to liberal wealthy gays… …0bama has done nothing for the gay community and he is president now… so what makes them think in a second term it would be any different? *lol*

    The NAACP long ago lost its way, and stopped being true to its own name. It’s now only a dumping ground for hard-core leftists who are having trouble finding a decent cause to support.

  • Patty

    personally, NAACP IS RACIST AND THEY LOVE TO INTERJECT THE WORD “justice” AND LOVE TO SAY THEY ARE FIGHTING FOR “human rights” Really?

    Top 10 Examples of NAACP Racism

    3. The Obama Administration bounced Van Jones out of its administration after the media learned he had led a Communist organization, signed a petition claiming that the Bush Administration “may indeed have deliberately allowed 9/11 to happen,” and organized a vigil on September 12, 2001 memorializing the victims of U.S. imperialism. Though Jones was ultimately too extreme for the U.S. President, he was just right for the NAACP’s president. On February 26, 2010, the NAACP’s Image Awards bestowed a “President’s Award” upon Van Jones.

    2. In the 1970s, a judge sentenced Benjamin Chavis to prison for his role in the firebombing a white-owned grocery store in a black part of Wilmington, N.C. A judge overturned his conviction on a technicality in 1980, with Chavis’s makeover so complete that the NAACP elected him chairman on April 9, 1993. A few months later, Chavis demanded the inclusion of the Nation of Islam in a 30th anniversary celebration of the March on Washington. He explained, “I want everybody here to know that the NAACP is standing with the Nation of Islam.” Angela Davis, Sister Souljah, and Leonard Jeffries were among the extremists Chavis extended an olive branch to during his short tenure as NAACP leader. Chavis, a former Christian minister, has joined the Nation of Islam since his firing from the NAACP.

    1. Ten years after the NAACP and W.E.B. Du Bois originally parted company in 1934, the civil rights organization welcomed him back. Whereas Du Bois’s peculiar racial views led to the first parting, his support for communism led to the final parting in 1948. Du Bois subsequently eulogized Stalin as a “great” and “courageous” man that had been “attacked and slandered as few men of power have been,” likened North Korean Communists to the American patriots of 1776, accepted a Lenin Peace Prize, was feted with a nation holiday in Maoist China, joined the Communist Party USA, renounced his American citizenship, and emigrated to Kwame Nkrumah’s Ghana.

    Rather than unnamed “racists” operating on the peripheries, or six-degrees-of-separation logic that lamely attempts to project X’s extremism upon Y, the above examples involve the NAACP’s official acts and duly elected leaders. In a few cases, such as with Lee Alcorn and W.E.B. Du Bois, the NAACP repudiated the extremism and severed ties. In each instance, the NAACP’s leadership, and not yahoos acting in its name, brought shame upon the organization.

    For most of its history, the NAACP has served as a force of political moderation and sought the laudable goal of an integrated society where people of color could reach their fullest human potential unhampered by discrimination. For most of its recent history, the NAACP has self-righteously designated itself the arbiter of who is and who is not a racist—even as it sponsors black racists.

    “What we take issue with is the Tea Party’s continued tolerance for bigotry and bigoted statements,” NAACP CEO Ben Jealous remarked upon his group’s anti-Tea Party resolution. “The time has come for them to accept the responsibility that comes with influence and make clear there is no place for racism and anti-Semitism, homophobia and other forms of bigotry in their movement.”

    Isn’t it time for the NAACP to accept responsibility for its own extremism? {..}

    I am both surprised and very happy to hear about the NAACP endorsement. I live in a black neighborhood and am also surprised and gratified by the number of times black men and women have broached this issue and let it be known that discrimination is discrimination is discrimination – period. I have yet to hear a single black person announce that he or she I.tends to vote for Mitt Romney in the face of President Obama’s decision…

    Conservatives have been on the wrong side of history time after time after time after time. They were wrong about slavery, and nearly tore this country apart over this issue. They were wrong about segregation, which blighted the South right through the 60s. They were wrong a out women’s rights, right through the 70s. They were wrong about interracial marriage, right up until the US Supreme Court handed down Loving v. Virginia, 388 U.S 1 (1967). History will judge them wanting in human decency once gay marriage is legalized nationwide (as it has already been in Canada, Spain, South Africa, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Portugal, and other nations). Back in 1999, not one state recognized gay marriage, civil unions, or domestic partnerships at the statewide level. Today, six states and the District of Columbia recognize full gay marriage while several others have implemented civil unions (which provide all the state benefits of marriage to couples who enter into them). The US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, in an analytically rich decision, upheld the ruling of Chief District Judge Vaughn Walker striking down Proposition 8…

    This issue will probably end up before the US Supreme Court, where we now have the votes to sustain the Ninth Circuit.

    Even should we lose, any person who seriously doubts the eventual outcome of this civil rights struggle is, at best, suffering from a mild break with reality.

    Justice is firmly on our side….
