NAACP Calling American Veterans the Backbone of the Tea Party Racist   1 comment

The NAACP, this week, went on national media denouncing members of the Tea Party as racist. The NAACP would not allow news groups to record their resolution vote making their statement official. The NAACP would only say to the national media was there could be racist supporters within the Tea Party ranks.

Tea Party members are calling on the NAACP to denounce it’s racist members and supporters. Racism has no color and it’s a two way street for anyone wanting to go down that road, said Mike Graham founder of United Native America and a Tea Party member.

African-American tea party candidates Erupted at Kansas City NAACP meeting over their resolution labeling the grass-roots conservative movement as “racist.”

Vernon Parker, an African-American tea party congressional candidate in Arizona, told Politico that he has not experienced the charges of racism that the NAACP is touting in the national media.

Vernon Parker, former mayor of Paradise Valley, told Politico that he has never felt out of place at a tea party rally because of the color of his skin. “When I go to tea party events, people don’t look at me any differently,” he said. “They didn’t judge me on the color of my skin, quite frankly, they judged me on my principles.” Vernon Parker went on to say “The NAACP should be concerned about bringing jobs to people in depressed areas.”

Another African-American tea party candidate, Tim Scott, a GOP congressional nominee in South Carolina, echoed Parker’s sentiments in a statement to Politico.

Tim Scott stated “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,” Scott said. Americans clearly see the NAACP’s attempt to smear the Tea Party. American voters are not news network zombies, they live in the real world, not the media projection of it.

Tea Party officials stood up to the NAACP by calling their statement flat out false and misguided. Members of the Tea Party see it as a democratic political party attack with the support of the NAACP to cause public image damage to their national group and movement.

What is not being reported in our national mainstream media, is the fact that the backbone of the Tea Party membership and supporters is our nations veterans, service members and their family members of all race in America. Veterans and Americans serving our nation today with the support of their family members make up the vast majority of the Tea Party movement.

The NAACP actions against the Tea Party is not going over well with Americans regardless of race or their political affiliation, and has opened the door for question about who is running the NAACP; their members and supporters. The fact that the NAACP is a race-based group, their political denouncement of the Tea Party only further diminishes their image and ability to bring people together.

It’s a well known fact that Tea Party members and supporters are a cross of all races, ethnic groups and political parties in America. It’s also a fact that a Black man Tea Party supporter was brutally beaten by Black union members bussed in to protest against A Tea Party event. NAACP members said he had it coming because he was selling tee shirts of Obama they did not like; that court case is still pending.

It’s also a fact that the Black Panther Party and the New Black Panther Party members support the NAACP and attend their events. The NAACP is also supported by the U.S. Congressional Black Caucus that does not allow any other race of elected congressional members of congress to join their caucus in solidarity.

This goes to the heart of the NAACP credibility in American society today, over their failure to reach out to Tea Party leadership first; before playing the race card for news headlines with a statement that would cast a blanket condemnation over a group made up of all walks of Americans when they themselves should be looking at their own members and supporters and their actions against others at events.

Tea Party members have no problem stating their cause and that is for our elected federal government representatives to govern from the Constitution of the United States Of America. They also demand that our elected representatives adhere to their issues and community needs to include the defiance of our country.

Americans will not stand for a government that’s run with an in-your face agenda as to how America should be governed, and what rights citizens should or will not have or laws that will be enforced solely on the political party in office. Enforcement of our nation’s laws for all Americans are a must. Tea Party members demand that their elected representatives honor their oath to the American citizens and our nation.

If the NAACP wants to stay relevant to it’s founding peaceable and cause they should be reaching out to all groups that support a strong and free America; that would include the Tea Part movement, not politically back-stabbing them with an unfounded national media racist smear campaign.

Reports have proven that political left wing fringe groups have tried to infiltrate Tea Party movement events to cause trouble and conduct racist acts that would be blamed on the movement’s membership and leaders. This action against the Tea Party gets very little national media air time, but Americans see what is being done to try and destroy the movement and it only makes them more determined to reach out to others to join them and stand united to take back our government; for the people, by the people of America.

The NAACP should come off it’s democrat party soap box and join Americans standing up for our country and it’s citizens regardless of race, and stop playing the race card at the drop of the hat. The direction the NAACP is going now against the Tea Party is wrong and history will prove them wrong. The Tea Party and NAACP should be allies in this fight to save our nation and way of life under the freedoms we have as Americans.

Both groups, Tea Party and NAACP should join forces in standing up against government oppression and restrictions of our civil liberties given to all Americans under our declaration of independence and constitution.

The vast majority of Americans support the Tea Party in saying our federal and state governments are out of control and not listening to us. Americans are fed up with Democrats and Republicans in office not doing their job for the people and our nation. American citizens need to unite and take a stand in telling our elected representatives how we want America run and taken care of for future generations, not the other way around. Americans are demanding a stop to the out of control “wasteful spending” and deficit that is threatening our ability to defend our home land.

The Tea Party’s real movement will be this November, with the mid-term election at the voting polls, and march forward growing stronger, focused on the 2012 election.

Tea Party members and supporters are calling on the NAACP to rescind it’s ill-conceived resolution and join the movement in solidarity for a better United America for all citizens.

President Obama Turning Afghanistan Into Another American Vietnam War   Leave a comment

President Obama accepting General Stanley McChrystal’s resignation over his statements reported in Rolling Stone magazine was done so just to save political face. General McChrystal speaking out was a wake-up call to Congress and Americans about the Obama administration’s mishandling of the Afghanistan government and war. General McChrystal is Obama’s second general to be relieved from command in Afghanistan.
 
General McChrystal stood up for U.S. Troops on the ground in Afghanistan. General McChrystal’s words brought world attention to the Obama-Biden administration’s failing Afghanistan policies. Now Congress and Americans have to take a for-real look at Obama’s overall plans for the Afghanistan government and building  the Afghanistan army. His words also block’s Obama from pointing his finger at Afghanistan’s President Hamid Karzai and laying any failures or troop losses solely on him. Now the Obama administration’s credibility is soundly on the line for Afghanistan and its future. Now there will be no cut and run for President Obama and his supporters; not after almost ten years of war and over a trillion U.S. tax dollars.

 
Vietnam was a Washington-run political war, it was politically lost. U.S. troops won that war everyday they were on the Battlefield only to have politicians in Washington cut and run denying our troops a victory.      
 
After President Obama announced General Petraeus would be in charge of his Afghanistan war plan, national media groups like CNN and Fox spent the day praising Obama. They called Obama’s decision nothing short of brilliant. Americans remember a 2007 advertisement in the New York Times by democrats stating “General Petraeus or General Betray Us?” plus, then Senator Obama denouncing General Petraeus and his war plan for Iraq and a heavy dose of Bush bashing.  
 
How times have changed. Now it’s up to General Petraeus to save President Obama and Vice President Biden’s political backside from losing control of the Afghanistan war.
 
President Obama’s new war plan for Afghanistan however; will not destroy the Taliban or Osama bin Laden’s al-Qaeda terrorist group. Nor will President Obama’s war plan secure Afghanistan’s government within a year as his stated plans are to start pulling U.S. troops out in July 2011. President Obama’s Afghanistan war plan over the next year will unfortunately add around 5,000 more U.S. troop casualties and three times that many with severe injuries. 
 
President Obama and Vice President Biden have given al-Qaeda and Taliban forces a year to prepare for U.S. and NATO troops buildup in Afghanistan. They were not ready to deal with Afghanistan in 2009. Obama’s Afghanistan war plan as it stands now, does however have all the historical ingredients in place and earmarks of another U.S. Custer last stand.
 
It’s a fact, over the past year Iran has been training al-Qaeda and Taliban forces for the Afghanistan show down. Iran is arming these terrorist groups and others with more powerful, armor-piercing, roadside bombs. Reports coming in now are stating these roadside bombs are taking a heavy toll on U.S. troops.      
 
For decades, our federal government has had in place a no-fly order between America and North Korean citizens. That order should be in place now between America and Middle Eastern countries that support or harbor terrorist groups within their borders. That would stop major terrorist cell group members from entering America and the free-world at will as they are now. Ask yourself why has America and free-world governments not enacted this kind of no-fly policy for Middle Eastern countries? 
 
General Stanley McChrystal may be a four star general, but he’s a five star American; for his sound military leadership and service to our country and for standing up and telling it like it is as to President Obama and Vice President Biden’s detached leadership and interest concerning the Afghanistan war and their not being soundly committed to destroying terrorist cells globally, period. General Stanley McChrystal is a true hero to our nation’s veterans and military family.
 
President Obama nor Vice President Biden were prepared to deal with all the inhuman realities of waging war against Middle Eastern terrorist groups dedicated 24/7 from 9-11 to destroying America and the free-world. Our nation’s top two elected leaders have let it be seen in the national media that they really do not want to deal with real military matters.
 
In 2009 U.S. Troops on the Afghanistan battle field watched and waited as President Obama and Vice President Biden took four months to decide what their “new” Afghanistan war plan and troop level would be. Then they were told President Obama’s war plan would not take place till mid 2010. Obama and Biden should have been ready from day one in office to reinforce U.S. troops in Afghanistan ensuring the destruction of al-Qaeda and Taliban forces.
 
Until President Obama sends U.S. Troops into Pakistan to destroy al-Qaeda and Taliban terrorists, there’s no way Afghanistan or America will ever be totally secured. It’s past time for Washington to take the gloves off and allow our military to destroy Middle Eastern terrorist groups.         
 
This is why our troops morale is so low and the all-volunteer Army program is not working in retaining qualified soldiers. This is also why the military has had to order U.S. Troops to serve past their enlistment time. Most all U.S. Troops today have had to serve four or more times in Iraq or Afghanistan. Some American soldiers are reported having to serve as many as seven or eight times in country.
 
Americans are demanding that President Obama and our elected Congress members stop all the political in-house fighting and get focused on destroying Middle Eastern terrorist groups attacking America and the free-world!
 
U.S. Troops will do their job for Afghanistan, now we will see if President Obama, his team and our Congress members will do their job for Afghanistan and our troops.
