Back in May, the NAACP finally spoke out about an incident where two SEIU members were accused of assaulting a black man vending Gadsden flags at a Conservative rally.

Gateway Pundit provides this transcript:

Back in the day, we used to call someone like that, and I want to remind you, uh, when this incident occurred, I was really struck by a front page picture of this guy, which we called, a Negro, I mean that we call him a Negro in the fact that he works for not for our people but against our people. In the old days, we call him an Uncle Tom. I just gotta say that. Here it is, the day after a young brother, a young man, I didn’t mean to call him a brother, but on the front page of the Post Dispatch, ironically, he’s sitting in a wheelchair, being kissed on the forehead, by a European. Now just imagine that as a poster child picture, not working for our people.

The group that is supposed to represent all “colored people” calls a black Conservative an “Uncle Tom.” And their representative apparently is unaware that the NAACP was originally called the National Negro Committee, before deciding to include all “colored” people.

In the Gladney attack, one of Gladney’s attackers was white.  One can only conject that the “new and improved” NAACP will protect only Liberal “colored people,” and selected whites—particularly those instrumental in giving beatdowns to “Negros.”

On the night of the incident, Gladney was working to provide for his family selling Gadsden flags at an event.  Of all the people these two union thugs could have selected at what the Left would deem a racist event, the thugs avoided the hundreds (crowd estimates were 1000 people) of white folks and found the only black person. There that Negro is, Cletus!

Gladney was not adorned in red, white, and blue, nor was his appearance overly patriotic. He looked and acted like a “vendor.” Nevertheless, the two SEIU hooligans, both at least fifty pounds heavier than Gladney singled him out for their attack. Wearing their gang colors, the purple SEIU t-shirts, his attackers made it perfectly clear that they represented the union–apparently Gladney didn’t have his union card.

So a black man was attacked for no reason, and while on the job; yet there was no outcry in the black community, no Sharpton visit, no Jackson press conference, and we now know the NAACP’s stance on the issue. The best they could come up with when attacking Gladney in the court of public opinion was: He didn’t even have medical insurance!

Gone are the days when the National Negro Committee turned NAACP actually stood for Republican ideals and truly represented the interest of blacks and other “colored people.” Like on June 18, 1935 in Murray v Pearson, when Thurgood Marshall and Charles Hamilton Houston successfully argued the landmark case to open the University of Maryland School of Law. This was back with the NAACP truly cared about educating blacks and protecting the rights of blacks.

This type of event is where the NAACP could have regained credibility and showed that it represents all people; instead they showcased exactly who and what they are—an organization who condones thuggery.

The speaker mentioned that Gladney was being “kissed on the forehead, by a European.” I’d like to know who is kissing the NAACP on the forehead. What exactly have they accomplished for black people in the modern day?

The worse neighborhoods in America. The worse schools. The highest crime rates. The most people on welfare, per capita.  Highest teenage pregnancy per capita. Highest high school dropout rates per capita. Lowest home ownership per capita. Lowest business ownership per capita.

Here’s the wrap:

The NAACP couldn’t do worse for blacks if it had been founded by Confederate Civil War veterans[1].  And in the Gladney incident, the NAACP proved that they are no better than the KKK.  

Like the KKK, the NAACP has its second-class citizens—black Conservatives. Nevertheless, given the effectiveness of the NAACP in dealing effectively with black issues, I suggest that black Conservatives avoid the “help” that the NAACP provides, and enjoy being second-class citizens. Just try to avoid the occasional beatdowns.

That’s my rant!
