This week our nations First Lady Michelle Obama had no problem attending a NAACP meeting held in Kansas City knowing the organization was going to issue a resolution that would basically brand the Tea Party as a White racist group.
Tea Party leadership and supporters rejected the NAACP's racist claim and resolution as a sad and uncalled for attempt to discredit the newly formed national political grassroots movement.
Now, Tea Party supporters are demanding that the NAACP look in it's own back yard and lead by example and denounce any Black racist groups or racist elements within their national group.
After First Lady Michelle Obama spoke at the NAACP meeting the Obama family went on a weekend vacation trip to Maine. This action by the Obamas made news over the weekend because Michelle and President Obama have been on TV numerous times over the past three months, pleading for Americans to vacation in the Gulf Coast area to support them in their time of need while dealing with the oil disaster. President Obama needs to address the NAACP's actions against the Tea Party movement.
Two main issues national media groups are not pointing out about the NAACP's action against the Tea Party Movement is:
1. The NAACP never requested a meeting with Tea Party leadership to discuss with them what the Tea Party is all about; or if they in anyway tolerate racists or racist groups within their national group.
2. The NAACP never offered Tea Party leadership an invitation to attend their Kansas City meeting to find common ground so the two groups could work together for a better America for all citizens.
Instead, the NAACP showed it's true democratic colors and went straight for the Tea Party's throat, smearing the group in the national media with a racist resolution. The NAACP's handing of the Tea Party with an in-your-face racist resolution leaves no doubt they never intended to reach out to the Tea Party movement as the group is seen as an affront to the democratic party and its big government policies.
The fact that First lady Michelle Obama attend the NAACP meeting and Obama is on record calling members of the Tea Party Tea Baggier's as a put down joke begs the question, how far and willing are democrats prepared to go in trying to disgrace the Tea Party movement?
The NAACP Tea Party resolution and media coverage of it, has made Americans think back at how left-leaning prominent media groups trashed Sara Palin and her family members in the 2008 election. It was nothing less than a hundred year setback for the women's movement in our society this day and time.
Americans are far more politically savvy than network talking head pundits pushing a political party's agendas while getting paid for it.
The Tea Party movement this week has showed all Americas it has a strong backbone and true to it's founding principles by staying focused on the groups cause and core issues; all the while the NAACP and media groups were hell-bent on destroying the Tea Party with fake wolf cries. Tea Party members across America have been physically and verbally attacked at their events by Black racists, Union members, left-wing activists, and dealt with attempts of hate groups trying to infiltrate their events trying to make them look bad. Americans have seen that national media groups are very willing to ignore all the racist acts and race hate threats toward the Tea Party movement.
NAACP, the political ball is in your court now for all Americans to see if you will step up to the plate and practice what you preach to others. The NAACP should have no problem going before the national media denouncing the Black Panthers Party, the New Black Panthers Party or stating they will not tolerate any racist group or like-minded persons within their ranks as well.
