In recent weeks, the Democratic party has unveiled their newest and best strategy to win in the November elections: call everyone else racist.
The group spearheading this effort is the NAACP, which is undeniably a tool of the Democratic Party. In recent days they have upped their attack on the Tea Party, issuing a formal demand to the tea party that they condemn racist elements in their own party.
The Mainstream Media has only been too happy to carry the torch for the NAACP’s unconscionable use of the race card for political gain, ignoring Tea Party pleas of innocence.
For the Mainstream Media, the Tea Party is guilty until proven innocent, and they have no desire to show evidence of innocence.
But the bloggers are fighting back.
Now that the NAACP has brought up the race card, they have opened themselves up to attacks that they are racist as well.
Andrew Brietbart of Big Government today released a video of Shirley Sherrod, the USDA Georgia director of Rural Development, speaking at the NAACP Freedom Fund dinner in Georgia.
In her meandering speech to what appears to be an all-black audience, this federally appointed executive bureaucrat lays out in stark detail, that her federal duties are managed through the prism of race and class distinctions.
[...]Sherrod describes how she racially discriminates against a white farmer. She describes how she is torn over how much she will choose to help him. And, she admits that she doesn’t do everything she can for him, because he is white. Eventually, her basic humanity informs that this white man is poor and needs help. But she decides that he should get help from “one of his own kind”. She refers him to a white lawyer.
Sherrod’s racist tale is received by the NAACP audience with nodding approval and murmurs of recognition and agreement. Hardly the behavior of the group now holding itself up as the supreme judge of another groups’ racial tolerance.
The NAACP is being incredibly shortsighted in their new strategy of using the race card. They are going to incite a race war if they keep this up. This battle is not about race, and if we allow them to define the lines as one between blacks and whites, they will defeat us, and in the end defeat what makes America great. This battle is between those who desire Government to be involved and controlling every facet of their lies, and those who see what is happening to our freedom and have drawn a line in the sand.
Opposition to a black president is not racism. Opposition to socialism is not racism. If we let them bait us into making it about race rather than the truth of our claims, it will not bode well for the future of this country.
