It seems they are fairly friendly with the Panthers.
Their points are even more valid, though, because of a direct, rather than just analagous, tie between the NAACP and the Panther case. It was first reported here at the Washington Times that “Kristen Clarke, director of political participation at the NAACP Legal Defense Fund in Washington, however, confirmed to The Times that she talked about the case with lawyers at the Justice Department and shared copies of the complaint with several persons. She said, however, her organization was ‘not involved in the decision to dismiss the civil complaint.’”
Ms. Clarke testified to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights a few months back that that account was wrong. But J. Christian Adams, the main lawyer who built the case against the Black Panthers, contradicted her when he testified to the commission on July 6. Here is the exchange between Mr. Adams and commission general counsel David Blackwood:
Read the whole thing. This does not surprise me in the least. The NAACP’s leadeship has tilted farther and farther to the left as time has gone by. And I am glad more and more Black Americans have started to condemn the NACCP, as I did yesterday.
If the NAACP’s membership really wants to save their organization, they should adopt the Tea Party mantra of “Throw the Bums Out!” And throw their current leadership out!
American Glob has a video of Andrew Brietbart amd Michael Meyers ripping the NAACP, as a brain dead organization of liars who do nothing but spew racial rhetoric, and demonize Blacks who DARE stray from the Ideological Plantation the Left tries to shackle them to!
