The name of this new site is teapartytracker.com. When reading the name of the site you might think that it has nothing to do with "colored people" and you would be absolutely right, but it has everything to do with the NAACP.
The NAACP is a political organization and has been for as long as I can remember. This site illustrates that with shocking and blatant gaul. Not only is this site being launched to discredit a lot of grass roots political organizations. It is doing it along side Media Matters, Think Progress, and New Left Media. These are extreme left wing sites that have nothing good to say about anything the Tea Party, AFP, the 912 organizations or any other group that believes in what would be deemed as conservative or even main stream. They are extremely left of center. I can't help but think that the Huffington Post was approached by the NAACP first. Just a guess on my part.
The question is why would the NAACP start a site like this. Is it going to help a single "colored" family, or advance the race in some way? Is this site going make the 16.3% unemployment rate for "coloreds" shrink? Is the site going to bring up the scores of the standardized tests taken by all students in the country and which "coloreds" finish dead last of the 4 major ethnicities?
The answer is of course no.
The site is a poilitical play to start a war between those that believe in the Constitution and those that don't, but disguised as a race war. It is a pre-election ploy attempting to lessen the major losses that the current administration will suffer in November. I am not one that believes that blacks in this country are stupid enough to fall for this obvious ploy, but the "coloreds" at the NAACP apparently are. Or, they might believe that the main stream media will jump on whatever they are told and given by this site and in turn manufacture an issue that doesn't exist. Whichever one it is, this shows the impotency of the NAACP.
The NAACP is an organization that is for the betterment of the "colored people" that are in the NAACP. The organization has nothing to do with blacks and their problems and issues, outside of exploiting them for the personal gain of the "colored people" in the heirarchy of NAACP.
What should come of this site should be the loss of the tax exempt status of the NAACP.

This country was populated with people from Europe, and in Europe there was The Age of Enlightenment, where scientists and physicists began to write and theorize against the established teachings of the Catholic Church. It was math, physics and reason that began to take hold in Europe. With the works of Galileo, Newton and Bacon, men began to question and began to reason and stopped just accepting the scientific writings of the ancients that were maintained by the Church. It was where man began to have faith in a God, but also reason as a man and an individual in a widespread way. Man questioned the Churches power to know everything and it also put doubt in the minds of those that had always assumed that the Church was as omniscient as their God.
The question of this blog is to determine whether or not this could occur within the Islamic world? Would it be possible for Islamic countries to adopt the same freedoms that we have in this country without Enlightenment?
If we look at the countries that are under Islamic rule you see that a lot of their laws are from the Koran. These laws are not written for men of other faiths or beliefs. The laws are unforgiving and absolute. Recently, a couple in the country of Afghanistan was stoned to death for eloping. This is a process where a woman or man has their hands tied behind their back and people come to throw stones and rocks at them until they are dead. There are no trained representatives of the government that carry this punishment out. It is the friends, acquaintances and neighbors in the community in which they live that commit this heinous act. This was not some Salem witch-hunt where an odd community of religious zealots committed crimes in the name of their faith. These Afghans were not sequestered from the world off on their own. This was a state allowed execution of 2 people that loved one another, but didn't follow the religious rules set up by the Koran. This woman had the gall to want to marry a man of her own choice. She wanted freedom that is not permitted by the laws of the Islamic state.
Is it possible for someone that could allow and condone these kinds of acts to truly understand and conceive of what our Constitution is? Muslims live more freely in this and other Christian based countries than in any Muslim country in the world. They live better, freer, and happier in the US than they do in the Muslim countries they defend.
Can a religion that condones "honor killings" not only of a wife that is adulterous, but also of a daughter, that in the eyes of the father has shamed the family, be entrusted to write a Constitution? How can a religion allow and condone such an act? This is not just a cultural difference; this is a difference in core and being. Can a religion that demands women wear burqas, that allows a man to have 4 wives, that allows lying and deceiving the infidel, or the wife be, responsible to the rights of all people? Can a religion that tells its young men that killing non Muslims and dying in the process is martyrdom and will get you to heaven possibly write a document like the Constitution?
Our Fore Fathers, who were devoutly religious men of the Christian faith, founded this country.
These men of reason, with Christian beliefs and values, wrote the Constitution.
The question is, if a group of extremely devout Muslims were to form a country from scratch, could they found it with the principals of freedom to man, or would it be allegiance to Allah. Would it be a country where a man has the freedom of his own thoughts and beliefs? Would it be a country where you had the right to property, liberty and prosperity? Would women have the right to marry whom they choose to marry without threat of death by stoning? Would honor killings be allowed?
I understand that not all Islamic countries explicitly condone these practices in their countries, but that's not the issue that concerns me. What does concern me is that there is no real Man written document that has any power in the existing Islamic nations. Even if the rulers of these countries do not condone these practices, they are allowed. You won't see the perpetrators of the murderous stoning of the couple in Afghanistan being brought to any justice. Can men and women allow this to happen and still be able to write a document like the Constitution?
I know that there are great Muslim minds out there, and I know that there are Muslims that love this country and our freedoms. Muslims are free to be Muslims in this country. There are no laws that prohibit a persons right to practice his religion. This exists here in a Christian nation, all the freedoms that we take for granted are said to come from God in this nation. But it took Man to write that out, make it law, and make it stick. Can this be done in an Islamic country?

"As a citizen, and as president, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as everyone else in this country."
If that was not enough, he added.
"That includes the right to build a place of worship and a community centre on private property in lower Manhattan, in accordance with local laws and ordinances.
"This is America, and our commitment to religious freedom must be unshakeable."
I guess if he were not the President of the United States, and if he were speaking at a forum on the law and the rights of Americans against religious persecution. If he wasn't in the White House, which Flight 93 was on route to before some brave and great Americans sacrificed their lives to down that plane in Pennsylvania. If it wasn't during a function that celebrates the religion that not only claimed responsibility but bragged about the killing of over 3000 Americans on 9/11. Maybe if his Supreme Court appointee hadn't gone to the Middle East to study and learn how to insert Sharia law into our system or government. Perhaps if his name was not Barack Hussein Obama, and he wasn't raised in Indonesia, or he hadn't bowed in servitude to every leader of every Islamic nation that he visited, maybe then I could let it go as a simple slip or some innocent statement. But since all I have pointed out is actually the case, I can not forgive.
It makes me think that when he put his hand on the Bible and swore to uphold the U.S. Constitution, to which God he swore.
This was no slip, and it was no mistake. This is the President of the United States, and he is so out of touch with the American people, and how the American people think and feel, that you have to start wondering if he understands Americans. But he seemed to feel really at home with those that were in the White House for the Ramadan celebration. I am thinking that he said what he did in a moment of ease of thought and relative comfort. I think he said it around people that he understands better and relates to. I am not sure if he had his teleprompters there but I am guessing not. I don't think that anyone could write that statement out and not see how the American people would naturally react to it. I am beginning to believe that the teleprompters are to keep him on point so that he doesn't stray and say what he really would like to say.
I am not saying that he wasn't born in this country, I am not saying that he is not a U.S. citizen, I am saying that he is not an American in the sense of loving this country and what it represents. I am saying he is not a defender or American Greatness and freedom. I am saying that he doesn't understand the Heartland, or the middle class working man. I am saying that he doesn't understand American individualism and how the individual benefits the nation.
You might read this and think that I am making assumptions about Barack Hussein Obama. I am not doing anything of the sort. I am saying to Connect The Dots and make your own determination.

Today Mexican immigrants seem to be coming here to be shackled by our social programs. Mexican immigrants seem to be coming here to take advantage of our public assistance programs that dole out services for families. It seems now that Mexican immigrants are coming and remaining culturally bound and loyal to Mexico, not America.
The illegal aliens coming across our border from Mexico are coming here for a lot of reasons. Some for a better life, some for our social services, some to smuggle other illegals, some to run drugs and some to kidnap and kill Americans for money. If we don't close our borders we can't choose which ones should be allowed in. We are a sovereign nation with borders and laws. We are a country of immigrants, but our immigrants have always wanted to become Americans. I am from Brooklyn, NY so I know immigrants. Immigrants wave American flags and speak highly of our country. Immigrants became Americans of different descents. They would never have called themselves Mexican Americans. They were Americans descended from their birth country.
The evil thing that is occurring is that the Mexican immigrants that are here to work and make a better life for themselves are being targeted.
I used both Fox News and the NY Times to make this point. The only illegals that are obviously here for the best intentions are being hunted and fired from their jobs by our federal government. Usually when this happens the illegals are deported back to their country of origin. In this case they are being fired and then allowed to remain in the country. Why do you think this is?
It is to make the federal government their only means of income and their only option left for them to survive. It is to turn the one group of illegals that are here to work and make money dependent on and beholden to the federal government for survival. Just as the Democrats targeted the black voters in the late 50s, early 60s, the Mexican is being targeted right now.

When I was a kid I remember my grand mother telling me not to worry about what anyone said about me. Know yourself and be true to that she said. She would say if someone were to call you ugly, or fat, or stupid it was usually because they had nothing of substance to say.
Let's translate that to todays debates on the Arizona Immigration Bill. On one side we have those that argue sovereignty and borders. They talk about crime statistics and they speak of existing laws being broken. They talk of city and state budgets and what the Bill would do for the citizens of the state. They talk about drugs and drug cartels bringing illegal drugs into the country, and the crime that follows it. They talk about the federal government not doing what they are charged to do. They speak of enforcing law and respecting borders.
On the other side they talk about the poor lawbreakers looking for a better life, racial profiling and racism. And they accuse those that want law and order of racism and of being racists.
They want Police officers to ignore law and allow illegal aliens more rights and more benefits than the citizens of Arizona. Let's clear up something here. There are American citizens being killed, kidnapped, robbed, and taxed to death for the betterment of "Mexican" nationals that illegally cross our borders. This is undisputed. There is no one saying that this isn't happening. There is no one denying that drugs are coming here by the ton from Mexico through Arizona. There is no one denying that there is human smuggling occuring. There is no one disputing that murders and kidnappings are being committed by illegals aliens crossing into Arizona. They are however very very passionate about one thing. Racism and Racists.
The argument given by those that don't want any laws to be obeyed are calling those that do racists. They apparently believe that being a racial profiler is the worst possible thing you could be. They realize that being a murderer is bad, but in their eyes being a murderer must not be as bad compared to a racist. Kidnapping is awful, but racial profiling by a police officer is far worse in their eyes. Through what kind of glasses are these people viewing the world? To them, foreign nationals killing American citizens pales in comparison to American law enforcement upholing our federal laws and protecting our borders and people.
I suggest that this be the time that we as a nation stop allowing the liberal ideologues and main stream media to define those they disagree with to be labeled incorrectly. I suggest that we attack instead of defend. I suggest we stop being defensive when we are called racists. Argue the argument. If they resort to calling you a racist you have won, let them know that. Let them know that they can call you anything they want, and you won't blink an eye to apologize for that lie and won't stop what you are engaged in. It' about truth and law, not name calling and lies.
I heard Meghyn Kelly say that being called a racist was one of the worst things you could be called. I love Meghyn Kelly but she played right into their hands. If you aren't a racist don't defend yourself when you are called one. Attack the accuser for hate speak and racially labeling you as something you aren't. Ask their reason for accusing or insinuating such a thing. Don't let them slide. Slander can be determined by a jury or a judge, if necessary. Take it there if you must.
I would rather be in a room full of racists than a room of law breaking murdering drug mules that want to kidnap and kill me. Am I alone in that?

There is a quote that I will now live my life by: ‘The only thing necessary for the triumph [of evil] is for good men to do nothing.’
I have been a Tea Party Patriot in Austin Texas since the April 15th, 2009 Tea Party at the Texas State Capital. I have been to many meetings and many events and have experienced absolutely no racism at all. I saw no signs and have heard no racial epithets thrown in any direction at anyone, but that does not exonerate them from guilt.
When the NAACP decided to create a resolution that accused the Tea Party of allowing racist elements at their events, I was confused and puzzled because I had never personally seen it. I had heard about it in the news and from commentators on television, but nothing first hand. But as the story grew and grew I began to see the guilt of those being accused. I began to realize why they were being targeted and why it made so much sense to do so. I must thank the NAACP, for bringing this to the attention of us all, so we can finally end it.
I guess I am a Tea Party whistle blower. I am going to tell it like it is and let the chips fall where they may.
The white men in the Tea Parties are afraid to speak. They will deny and deny that they are racists and they will deny that they allow racist acts, all the while allowing the true racists to put them on the defensive. They give ground, and allow the true racists to define the argument and set the rules of engagement. They have apparently bought into the belief that a black man can call a white man anything in creation, but if a white man says anything unflattering in the least, to or about a man or woman of color, he is by definition a racist. If this behavior is allowed to continue, then the good men are allowing the evil men to prevail. The Tea Party needs to fight this obvious racism. If they do not, and they allow the NAACP to make these baseless charges about them unchallenged and unfought, they will truly be guilty of allowing racist acts to be tolerated. I am going to stand up in defiance of the race baiters and confront them every time they choose to accuse those of the behavior that they themselves have displayed for so very long.
Join me in this defiance and trust the American people to see the truth and give them the credit to be able to identify the lies.

The Republicans are basically sighting their differences between the current administration and how they and their candidacy differs from it. They are campaigning on repealing what this administration has done. They are pointing out things that the administration has passed that polling seems to show a majority of the American people oppose. Whether or not this is going to be a winning strategy in the end has yet to be seen, but this seems to be the strategy.
The Democrats are running on more government intervention, Wall Street regulation and how well TARP has stopped a depression. They are also running on Immigration and amnesty. Well, at least the President is.
The Republicans seem to have the upper hand if the polls are accurate at all. So how do the Democrats fight to keep their power?
It seems that since they can't excite their voter base they are choosing to incite them. How is it possible that the first supposed "Post Racial" President has so much racial tension around him.
If you are Tea Party activist you are now deemed a racist. If you bring up the Black Panther voter intimidation case you are a racist. If you believe in securing the border and support Arizona's immigration law you are a racist. If you disagree with the first black President, and have the gaul to say so, you are a racist.
I am an American black man, that would make me a Tom or a token in the eyes of those that are looking to turn the Tea Party into a racist group. I wear the badge proudly. I don't have any respect for those that chose to race bait. Their opinion of me is not as important to me as the truth, and truth is what I deal with. I know the truth about them, and that is why they try to discredit and marginalize people like myself. I have no fear of telling it like I see it, I don't fear their ire or cringe at their name calling.
To come out and call the Tea Party racist while being silent about the Black Panthers shows the agenda of the NAACP. To say that a Billboard in Iowa, a sign that was not allowed at a rally and an out and out blatant lie by a Congressman about saliva and the "N" word is proof of racism, but the rants of killing white babies and white women for having these babies is not worth a word of mention by the NAACP should be troubling to all Americans. I condemn those rantings as do the vast majority of Americans. Where is the NAACP on this. It seems to me that they are not tolerant of billboards and signs, but they are tolerant of the killing of white women and babies. By saying nothing about that racism, the NAACP aligns itself with the other black organization that this administration seems to support.
I am hoping that these organizations that are totally race based are a thing of the past. I am hoping that those in the NAACP would not try to incite the members to violence as are the Black Panthers. I am hoping that their silence on the ranting of the Black Panthers isn't tepid approval of said violence. We all know that the Black Panthers want to incite violence against whites. Is the NAACPs silence on this a tell tale sign of things to come?
I wonder if this is what Michelle Obama meant when she told the NAACP members to "increase their intensity"?
