NAACP Should Lose Nonprofit Status

There have been times when different organizations throughout our history whom have called for the nonprofit status of a group to be dishonored and suffer the loss of such nonprofit status after it has been proven that said group is politically partisan. I am sad to say that I agree this is one of those times.

Below you will find some people who agree with me (of course). The difference? They are also black, and they are fed up with the hypocracy. Please read further.

NAACP Executive Caught on Tape Lying About Tea Party Attendance

If the NAACP Will Lie About This, What Else Might Its Leadership Be Lying About?
.

Washington, D.C. - In [an] appearances on the Fox News Channel this week, NAACP executive Hilary Shelton claimed he attended a major tea party event despite having said three days before that he had not attended a tea party, was "afraid" to go to a tea party rally and had only watched media reports about them.

"Did Hilary Shelton lie to me?" asked Deneen Borelli, full-time fellow with the Project 21 black leadership network. "If he can't give a simple, straightforward answer about whether he has been to a tea party, that certainly calls the truthfulness of his other claims about the tea party movement into question."

On the July 16 edition of "America's Newsroom" on the Fox News Channel, Borelli and Shelton — the NAACP's senior vice president for advocacy — debated the merits of the NAACP's resolution decrying alleged instances of racism at tea party events. In this debate, Shelton claimed to have attended the tea party rally at the U.S. Capitol on the weekend of the House of Representative's vote on health care:

Borelli: "Have you been to a tea party?"

Shelton: "I was. As a matter of fact I was on Capitol Hill at that tea party rally "

However, on the July 13 edition of "America Live," he had a different answer when asked the same question by Phil Dennis of the Dallas Tea Party:

Dennis: "Have you been to a tea party event?"

Shelton: "I have watched you on TV. I'm afraid to go I have not."

Which is it?

"The increasing politicization of the NAACP is putting the reputation of this venerable civil rights institution at risk. For it to be allowed to be used as a weapon to attack the tea party movement calls its credibility into question, and Hilary Shelton telling two tales of his interactions with the tea party is troubling," added Borelli. "I would suggest he take the time to read the tea party's Contract from America and attend a tea party rally — for the first or second time — with an open mind."

Video of both interviews can be seen at [the] [ConservativeBlog.org].

Borelli has a statement about the NAACP's racism allegations at the BigGovernment.com website [snip] and another at the FoxNews.com website [snip], has appeared repeatedly on the Fox News Channel to discuss the issue (clips at the SunnyDayAmerica YouTube channel [snip], and joined in a press release condemning the NAACP allegations with other members of Project 21 in a press release[:
"Progressives have hijacked the NAACP to the extent that the group stands silent as conservative blacks suffer indignities for their beliefs. Some NAACP even egg on this appalling behavior – providing political cover and lapdog services for these elitists," said Project 21 member Kevin Martin. "As a conservative black man, I have felt more welcomed and at home within the tea party movement than among those of my own who side with the this new NAACP. If a few random signs of President Obama looking like the Joker is indeed racist, then where was the NAACP when conservative blacks are depicted as lawn jockeys, Oreos and Uncle Toms?"

More allegations were made] in a series of statements at BigGovernment.com.

This is a group that is fair and does not discriminate. Isn't that what Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. dreamed about? Black or white, yellow or red, we are all Americans. We are brothers and sisters. To hate your brother or sister is to hate yourself. Is this why Conservatives are happier than Liberals? Perhaps. We live each new day as it comes, and that's the way life ought to be without the government interference! Have a blessed day.

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again. Digg! Digg!
