NAACP Has No Interest In Addressing Racism Against Justice Clarence Thomas


Who can blame them? Clarence Thomas is a conservative, and, liberals obviously can never be guilty of racism against against a conservative. He’s been called an “anti-black,” and even Obama’s 20 year pastor, Jeremiah Wright, referred to Thomas as an “Uncle Tom.” And now, according to the Daily Caller

The NAACP won’t directly address the racism displayed by progressive protesters outside a summit hosted by billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch at the end of January in Palm Springs, Calif., but the organization did call for an end to all “vitriolic language.”

In response to The Daily Caller’s request for comment on a video showing progressive protesters calling for somebody to “string up” African American Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, or “send him back into the fields” or “cut off all his toes and feed them to him one-by-one,” NAACP spokesman Hilary Shelton pointed to the organization’s recent resolution calling for a “civil political discourse.”

“Last summer, the NAACP passed a resolution calling for a civil political discourse,” Shelton said in an e-mail to TheDC. “We continue to call on all Americans to abandon vitriolic language. It serves as a distraction from the real issues our society need to address and distorts the challenges we as Americans have to confront to make our nation greater still.”

Shelton would not, however, address the content of the video directly.

This is the same as in the rest of Liberal World: they will generically denounce vitriolic political discourse, and slam those on the Right, but, will rarely denounce the people on their own side.
