#MoralMonday / NCNAACP “leader”: Tea Party uses minority voices as “mouthpieces”
Because he didn’t dig a deep enough hole with the disgusting, race-baiting bile he spewed a couple of weeks ago about Senator Tim Scott (R-SC), NC NAACP “leader” and Moral Monday founder /”spiritual adviser” / de facto head (unofficial) of the NC Democrat Party Bill Barber decided to keep shoveling today with continued swipes at minority conservatives (hat tip):
An NAACP leader in North Carolina said Tuesday that the tea party is actively seeking out minorities to use as “mouthpieces.”
“They frantically seek out people of color to become mouthpieces for their particular agenda,” the Rev. William Barber said on a conference call.
Barber, the head of the North Carolina NAACP, recently caused controversy by comparing Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), the lone black Republican in Congress, to a ventriloquist’s dummy at an event in South Carolina last month.
“A ventriloquist can always find a good dummy,” Barber said the day before Martin Luther King Day in Columbia, S.C., according to The State. Barber added that “the extreme right wing down here 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.”
Barber said Tuesday that his comment wasn’t meant to be racial and that many others serve as mouthpieces for the tea party.
“It amazes me that people are concerned about a metaphor that says, whether you’re [South Carolina Gov.] Nikki Haley or whether you’re Gov. [Pat] McCrory of North Carolina or [North Carolina Senate candidate and Assembly Speaker] Thom Tillis or Sen. Scott — it has nothing to do with color,” Barber said. “The issue is: Who are you a mouthpiece for when you fight the implementation of the Affordable Care Act?”
Barber added: “We have to challenge that. It has nothing to do with someone’s intellect.”
Sure it’s not about race, “Reverend”, which is exactly why you singled out the the only Republican Senator in Washington, DC and made sure to reference the fact that he was black.
Barber, unfortunately, will not be out of the news anytime soon. There will be a “Moral March” held this coming Saturday in Raleigh (NC’s state capital), which will be a revival of sorts of the “Moral Monday” progressive “spiritualism” movement designed to promote socialism that we saw here during the spring and summer of NC Democrat discontent. The North Carolina media (and I suspect MSNBC and other left-leaning media types from all over the country) will be there with bells on – perhaps some of them will even march, considering their political leanings – so I’m sure we’ll get tons of video/pix/interviews and whitewashing (no pun intended) of what actually takes place. I’m hearing that there will be “busloads” of people coming in from other states as well, so the cray cray quotient should be high.
Oh, and where is the North Carolina Democrat party on Barber and Moral March? Today they reaffirmed their support of both the movement and its demagogic “leader” who believes black conservatives are token conservative puppets whose strings are pulled by white Tea Partiers. They first put their support for Barber and the Moral Monday marches in writing last June, and have never wavered in spite of the routine embarrassment Barber causes for the state with his deliberately inflammatory rhetoric and bigotry – both of which would get the state GOP in big trouble with the local and national media if/when anyone on “their side” said/says remotely the same thing … as we saw back in October over a local yokel who had ZERO influence or pull within the party.
Move along here, nothing to see … just a race hustler doing his thing, a liberal state party in disarray latching on desperately, and the local media holding them both to vastly different standards than they would conservatives.
