Radical NAACP Leftists Propose Resolution Condemning "Tea Party Racism" …Update: NAACP Leader Goes Off Message; Says NAACP Needs to Be Like Tea Party

NAACP: We Need to Be More Like Those Racist Tea Partiers

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). the radical leftist group that labels black conservatives “Uncle Toms”, proposed a resolution at their 101st Annual Convention this weekend condemning the “tea party racists.” This far left organization will vote on the resolution Tuesday at their national meeting.

A racist NAACP leader recently attacked black conservative Kenneth Gladney for being “kissed on the forehead, by a European.”

The Kansas City Star reported, via Free Republic:

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People will propose a resolution this week condemning racism within the tea party movement.

The resolution, scheduled for a vote as early as Tuesday by delegates attending the annual NAACP convention in Kansas City, calls upon “all people of good will to repudiate the racism of the Tea Parties, and to stand in opposition to its drive to push our country back to the pre-civil rights era.”

NAACP leaders said the resolution was necessary to make people aware of what they believe is a racist element within the tea party movement.

“I think a lot of people are not taking the tea party movement seriously, and we need to take it seriously,” said Anita Russell, head of the Kansas City chapter of the NAACP. “We need to realize it’s really not about limited government.”

Russell said she was “pretty certain” the resolution would pass.

How awful.
What ever happened to this once respected organization?

UPDATE: Figures. The head of the NAACP just told reporters yesterday that the organization needs to be more like the Tea Party.
Kristinn found this at The St. Louis Post Dispatch:

The head of the NAACP paused, started, then paused again when trying to explain what the message of his keynote address would be when he steps to the podium tonight at the civil rights organization’s national convention.

“The core message will be that we’ve got to pull this nation back together and put this country back to work,” said Benjamin Jealous, president and CEO of the NAACP, in an interview.

Jealous’ strategy for pulling the country back together might at first blush surprise those at the convention. His idea: Follow the lead of the Tea Party movement, which emerged in full force after the election of President Barack Obama with rallies, town hall meetings and a “take back the country” mantra.

Truly, this is an organization that has lost its way.
