Saturday Night Card Game (Is Ben Jealous jealous of Tim Scott, or just a malicious person?)

Saturday Night Card Game (Is Ben Jealous jealous of Tim Scott, or just a malicious person?)

Of course, there is a third possibility, both.

The NAACP under the guidance of Ben Jealous had emerged as a forceful race card player directed at conservatives in general, and the Tea Party movement in particular.

In July 2010, the NAACP Passed a “Tea Party Is Racism” Resolution, and Tim Scott was in the lead in opposing the NAACP:

Tim Scott, the Republican candidate for Congress is South Carolina, who is black and has strong Tea Party support, also understands what this is all about:

“I understand that the NAACP, at its annual conference in Kansas City, will vote today on a resolution condemning the Tea Party movement as “racist”. I believe that the NAACP is making a grave mistake in stereotyping a diverse group of Americans who care deeply about their country and who contribute their time, energy and resources to make a difference.”

“As I campaign in South Carolina, I participate in numerous events sponsored by the Tea Party, 9/12, Patriot, and other like-minded groups, and I have had the opportunity to get to know many of the men and women who make up these energetic grassroots organizations. Americans need to know that the Tea Party is a color-blind movement that has principled differences with many of the leaders in Washington, both Democrats and Republicans. Their aim is to support the strongest candidates – regardless of color or background – who will fight to return our country to its Constitutional roots of limited government, fiscal responsibility, and free markets.”

The NAACP followed up its “Tea Party is Racism” resolution by entering into a joint venture with Media Matters and Think Progress, TeaPartyTracker.org”.  The website ostensibly was to track Tea Party racism, but that was not the real purpose.  The real purpose was to further media narrative of Tea Party racism regardless of the facts.

 

This publicity stunt was a charade there was no Tea Party racism to track, and the website was shut down.  But the mission was accomplished because it furthered the leftist attack narrative.

Jealous made headlines this past week by accusing Tim Scott of not supporting civil rights:

Scott has responded with class:

Tim Scott has a history of standing up to the NAACP’s attempt to demonize the Tea Party, and it’s hard to believe that there wasn’t some measure of payback motivating Jealous.

But then again, people like Jealous reserve their most vicious accusations for conservative Republicans who happen to be black.  So maybe it was just Ben Jealous being jealous of an American success story which did not emerge from the NAACP or the welfare state.

One good upside of preparing this story is that I found this profile of Scott when he was running for Congress:

    Alternately: a ghettoist organization.

    “Ghettos, in short, instill a cultural adaptation to social and class-based inequalities; enhancing the inability for future generations to mobilize or migrate.”

Thanks for posting the video of Tim Scott’s Congressional race. It was good to get to know him better and learn about his faith and values.

We need more Tim Scotts in office.

My thanks, too, for the videos of Tim Scott. He’s what the Republican party needs: a person who can explain what’s useful about Republican philosophy.

I think that Ben Jealous is jealous of the fact that Tim Scott is blacker than he is. Ben cannot help the fact that his overly abundant white blood makes him a racist.

People like Ben Jealous are idiots and frankly racists themselves. Some of my family members are black, and they used to belong to the NAACP many years ago, they don’t anymore.

NAACP seems to have only one purpose, to promote themselves and race bait! They should be celebrating black Americans like Tim Scott becoming a US senator, yet they want to tear him down. After all, if they can’t sell racism, what purpose do they have to exist?? They should be promoting more blacks to get successful, more economically free, yet, they make their business blaming, race baiting etc, once you’re off the dependency “plantation”, in NAACP’s eyes, then you are no longer useful to their cause of keeping up the race baiting, the dividing of americans, one race against another.

As for Senator Scott, CLASS ACT, all the way, I’m proud to have a man like this in the Senate. Just like Colonel Allen West, Mia Love, they all make me proud to be an American.

Ben Jealous in every interview I have ever seen is always yelling and so angry, always angry, scowling.

oops, calling him “angry”, gee I guess that makes me a racist!//sarc!

The Republicans are against civil rights. Uh-huh… I guess that’s why the first three Black Senators were all… REPUBLICANS.

To answer the professor’s question. He’s malicious.

Ben Jealous stirs the racial pot for motives related to progressive politics and profit. He’s a race pimp in the mold of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.

These race hustlers do it for the money. Guess what that makes them? Whores.

According to someone like Jealous, a black person should just continue to do as they’re told. You’d think they’d be a little sick of that. A black ESPN anchor called Griffin III of the Senators a “cornball” because he’s a Republican and has a white financee. What did ESPN do? A modest suspension. He should have been fired outright.
