If you are black, you cannot be a Republican and you certainly can’t be a conservative, or you will be attacked viciously by liberals and other blacks.
Tim Scott has suffered untold abuse at the hands of liberals, black liberals, and some who spew their hate even call themselves Reverend. This post only deals with the latest attack but the attackers are relentless.
If you want to be black and respected, you must at least be a liberal, preferably a Marxist.
Rev. William Barber
The National Review reported that Rev. William Barber II, the president of North Carolina’s NAACP chapter, speaking to a crowd of about 300 at the Zion Baptist Church said this about Republican Senator Tim Scott, who is black:
“A ventriloquist can always find a good dummy,” Barber said, “the extreme right wing down here (in South Carolina) finds a black guy to be senator and claims he’s the first black senator since Reconstruction and then he goes to Washington, D.C., and articulates the agenda of the Tea Party.”
Senator Scott is the first black senator since Reconstruction and the only black Republican serving in the Senate. He’s a prime target.
The insinuation that the Tea Party is anti-black is invented. The latest NAACP complaint is aimed at Tea Party support for voter ID laws, laws which will help keep down the voter fraud the left is so adept at.
The State has more of the so-called Reverend’s comments: “We must not give up the so-called high moral ground to the right-wing extremists…Any profession of faith that doesn’t promote justice and standing against wrong is a form of heresy,” said Barber, adding that pastors who obsess about topics like prayer, homosexuality and abortion while neglecting justice, poverty, fair play and equality issues “are just running their mouths.”
His comments were well-received. Fabulous!
The Rev. organizes “Moral Monday” rallies at the State Capitol and has been arrested during demonstrations.
The Reverend and NY’s Governor would get along quite well. Is this really what Martin Luther King Jr. would want?
