RUSH: From The Politico today: ‘NAACP: We Didn’t Call Tea Party ‘Racist.” Really? I thought the media told us it’s a giant resolution yesterday, the tea party’s racist. But the NAACP says, ‘We didn’t call tea party racist.’ So yesterday wasn’t real? The media lied to us yesterday again? ‘NAACP President Ben Jealous said Thursday that the resolution passed by the group on Wednesday does not call the tea party ‘racist.’ The resolution the NAACP approved Wednesday … alleges that the tea party has used racial epithets against President Barack Obama and has verbally and physically abused African-American members of Congress.’ Oh, this is the old John Lewis argument. The Official Obama Criticizer does a perfect impression of Georgia congressman John Lewis. Just as a warm-up, I want you to repeat for the audience something I heard Congressman Lewis say once during the confirmation hearings of Clarence Thomas. He was on the floor of the House of Representatives. He said… You know, I can do a great impersonation, too, but I will get creamed if I do it. See, I’m not allowed to impersonate Congressman Lewis. But Snerdley is. He’s got the right amount of ‘slave blood.’ He’s ‘certified black enough to criticize.’ Congressman Lewis said, ‘I have been beat upside the head, but it doesn’t meeeean that I’m qualified to be on the Supreme Cou’t.’ Go!
SNERDLEY: (John Lewis impression) I have been beeeat upside my hea’d, but it doesn’t meeean that I am qualified to be on the Supreme Cou’t.
RUSH: Right. So it is. Thank you, Mr. Snerdley, Official Obama Criticizer. So is Mr. John Lewis who claims he was spat upon and that the N-word was shouted at him while he was walking amidst tea party protesters on Health Care Sunday. Andrew Breitbart has offered a hundred thousand dollars for anybody who show audio or video. There has been no proof — and yet in the nothing-is-real media, it happened. So now the NAALCP says, Well, no, no, no. We passed a resolution alleges the tea party has used racial epithets. ‘A portion of the resolution does indeed characterize the behavior as ‘racist,’ but Jealous said Thursday during an interview on MSNBC … that the resolution was not intended to condemn the entire movement as such.’ But that’s exactly what the resolution said and exactly what the media reported yesterday.
So what’s changed here?
Because the hell they didn’t! The hell they didn’t have a resolution claiming the tea party was racist. That Mr. Jealous sees the need to back away from his own resolution is interesting. There must be some real backlash coming at the NAACP from someplace. To all of you leftists in this audience, and all of you blacks who are Democrats, can I ask you a question? The theory is that you’re not energized to vote this November for whatever reason, and the theory is, to get you energized, that your party has to run around and say there’s racism all over the place. There’s racism in Uganda because of Al-Qaeda. There’s racism at the tea party. Does it not perplex some of you black Democrats that your party members never come to you and talk to you and get you to vote for jobs or tax cuts or things oriented toward economic growth? Has it ever dawned on you that the primary weapon they are use to get you interested in voting is to shout, ‘Racism over there! Racism behind that rock! Racism over there! Bigotry’? What does that say to you? What does that tell you they think of you?
