NAACP accused of anti-GOP bias at Sessions confirmation hearing

Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., before the Senate Judiciary Committee. (AP Photo/Cliff Owen)At a Senate hearing Wednesday, Sen. Lindsey Graham confronted the president of the NAACP with accusations that the civil rights group has an anti-Republican bias.

NAACP President Cornell Brooks was testifying in opposition to President-elect Donald Trump’s nomination of Sen. Jeff Sessions for attorney general when Mr. Graham challenged his and the organization’s political motives.

Earlier, Mr. Brooks said that Mr. Sessions’ record “evinces a clear disregard, disrespect, and even disdain for the civil and human rights of racial and ethnic minorities, women, the disabled, and others who suffer from discrimination in this country.”

“Based on his record and his statements, the NAACP strongly believes that confirmation of Senator Sessions as attorney general would be bad for America and could exacerbate already deepening racial divisions in this country,” he told the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Mr. Graham, South Carolina Republican, later asked what was Mr. Sessions’ score on the NAACP legislative score card.

“The senator has received a low grade, a failing grade, for years on end,” Mr. Brooks said.

Mr. Graham notes that every Republican on the committee received a failing grade in the teens or 20s, while nearly every Democrat on the committee received a score of 100 percent.

So, in the black eyes of the NAACP, only Democrats can occupy the White House and appointees?  Bad news, Mr. Brooks, as your savior said on several occasions, "We Won, You Lost" and "Elections Have Consequences"

Take your whiny black ass back to the hills from whence you came! 

Don't send them to the hills!  We have our own democrats here and we do not need any outside agitators.

I think there should be a WHITE CAUCUS. Their heads would explode.

That would be racist.

Following is a little bit of verifiable information for y'all to chew on:


Black Caucus - not racist
White Caucus - racist

United Negro College Fund - not racist
The Whites Only Scholarship - racist

Spelman College (#1 in Historically Black Colleges and Universities) - not racist
*any* college whose student population is primarily not Negro - racist 
(There are at least 50 "historically black colleges and universities.  In order to be on the list, a school must be currently designated by the U.S. Department of Education as an Historically Black College or University)

Republicans vote Mr. Trump in as president - racist
Democrats vote for historically racist hillary clinton - not racist

"Rev" Sharpton calls for blacks in America to kill police - not racist
Police personnel employ self-defense - racist

NAACP -- not racist
NAAWP - racist

I think the above is a racist post. (sarcastic)

Really, they would.

oh yes the naacp . the group who was found out to have accepted money from donald sterling when he was accused of racism

I wouldn't speak to the NAACP until they denounce BLM. Until that takes place exclude them, ignore them and when they resort to criminality instead of peaceful protest they would face overwhelming force to dispurse. BLM has been outspoken concerning their desire to ambush and murder Law Enforcement Officers. Until Americans respects the lives of all citizens regardless of race their will not be peace. The numbers of criminals seem to be increasing at a higher rate than population growth. Revise the criminal justice system for harsher swifter punishment of violent criminal behavior especially if premeditation is envolved. Time to end this and stop excusing the behavior. The NAACP monopolizes on unrest and is the largest detriment to its on people.

LIGHTER SIDE

ALERT ALERT

Bill and Hillary Clinton Brutally
Mocked After Defending

View image on Twitter

Crooked Bill and Hillary Clinton were brutally mocked Monday after defending the Clinton Foundation on social media.

The Clinton Foundation’s official Twitter account tweeted Saturday, “ICYMI: President @BillClinton wrote on Facebook this week about our work improving lives in the United States and around the world, from fighting climate change to combating the opioid crisis.”

Former President Bill Clinton’s Facebook post served to correct the record about so called fake news smearing the Clinton Foundation. Naturally, he linked to far left sites such as Snopes and Politifact to debunk the smears.

After touting all the charity the Clinton Foundation brings to hurricane victims, farmers in East Africa and combating Climate Change, Bill Clinton unleashed on Breitbart News for spreading conspiracy theories and false information about the Foundation.

Nevertheless, spreading false information about the Foundation continues, apparently as part of an ongoing strategy to distract attention from real problems and, over the long run, to completely erase the line between fact and fiction.

For example, just a few weeks ago on MSNBC, during a discussion of the President’s disparaging remarks about Haiti, his designated defender repeated the ridiculous assertion that I had taken money raised for Haiti for personal use and was responsible for the apparent suicide of a Haitian who knew all about it. Thankfully, the host cut her off, refusing to provide a forum for known false conspiracy theories. I’m proud of the work the Foundation and I have done in Haiti and will give you a more detailed report on that soon.

These attacks on the Foundation began in earnest with the 2015 publication of the Breitbart-inspired book, Clinton Cash. I thought the Foundation staff did a good job debunking the book’s charges, but they were published as written even in “mainstream” outlets, and even now the charges continue to be repeated online and in forums favorable to those who make them.

I have never responded personally to these charges, but out of respect for our donors, partners, and those who work at the Foundation, I think I should—because as we see, attacks, no matter how outrageous, can have a long life.

Bill Clinton also argued Chelsea’s wedding wasn’t paid for by Clinton Foundation donations nor do any of them receive salaries.

No, Foundation funds were not used to pay for Chelsea’s wedding. It’s not only untrue, it’s a personal insult to me, to Hillary, and to Chelsea and Marc. It was a wonderful day that Hillary and I were grateful to be able to pay for.

Clinton also argued the foundation was given 4 out 4 stars from Charity Navigator, Platinum from GuideStar, A from Charity Watch, and a 20 out of 20 score for meeting all of the Better Business Bureau’s good practice standards.

Hillary Clinton tweeted: Want to hear the real story of the @ClintonFdn? Read this: 

 Trump supporters savaged the Clintons.

How about when Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Oman donated MILLIONS to your foundation when you were Secretary of State and then you conducted official US business with them? 

What about how Haitian villages that you raised money for are STILL without the homes, schools and infrastructure you promised for them? Where did it go Hillary? Where's that money? Why did you plunder the great people of Haiti? 

  

Unless it explains

Benghazi 33,000 missing emails  Haiti  Destroyed electronics  Missing money
Uranium One Etc

Then no. Nope.  
Not on Presidents day.  

Care to tell us how much the Foundation pays out in salaries each year? 

 

Slush fund? Pay-to-play? Salaries for Sid Blumenthal?
Fraud in Haiti?  The vast majority of funds don't reach people in need?
That's the real story, right?
