NAACP Shows True Colors Against Only Black US Senator Because He's Conservative


South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley has made the decision to appoint a replacement for retiring U.S. Senator Jim DeMint. She has chosen Congressman Tim Scott (R-SC), a very conservative Republican. He's also happens to have dark skin, which would make him the only United States Senator who is black. So why would the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People oppose such a man? Precisely because he doesn't go along with "their agenda."

The Daily Caller reports,

Hilary Shelton, senior vice president for advocacy and policy at the NAACP, told The Daily Caller Monday afternoon that the group welcomed diversity in the Senate, but expects the new senator to work against the NAACP’s agenda.

“It is important that we have more integration in the U.S. Senate,” said Shelton in a phone interview. “It’s good to see that diversity.”

“Mr. Scott certainly comes from a modest background, experience, and so forth, and should be sensitive to those issues,” he said, referring to Scott’s impoverished single-parent upbringing in Charleston, SC.

Unfortunately, his voting record in the U.S. House of Representatives raises major concerns,” Shelton said.

Shelton explained that the NAACP platform is crafted through an annual voting process which engages grassroots-level delegates who vote on the group’s national agenda. That agenda calls for an expansive role for federal government spending in black communities.

It seems that Shelton has a problem because Scott is a thoroughly conservative Republican. While claiming that his voting record "raises major concerns," he failed to cite exactly what those concerns were. I have a feeling they have something to do with things like a perfect voting record when it comes to pro-life issues. Perhaps it's his stand on the Second Amendment or maybe it has to do with the fact that he actually believes in the God of the Bible and marriage in the way that is defined in the Scriptures.

He did however, point to what she thought Scott would work towards and that was a vision of "small government." Oh boy! That is exactly what the opposition to liberals and the NAACP want!

Shelton said, “Small government usually means, as it’s being described these days, the elimination of the role of government and support for initiatives and programs that are crucial for the African-American community."

“When the discussions about small government were utilized by Ronald Reagan, he appointed Bill Bennett as the Secretary of Education. Bill Bennett had actually voted during his time in the House of Representatives to eliminate the Department of Education,” Shelton continued. “That’s not within the African-American community’s best interest.”

Not only that, but Shelton claims that Scott, by holding to the view of smaller government, would decrease the amount of federal assistance for housing, which he also claims would be a signal of abandoning civil rights regulations. Shelton added that Scott, “has demonstrated a record of opposition to civil rights protection and advancing those real issues of concern of the NAACP’s noted African-American community.”

Seriously? Why would a man with dark skin oppose civil rights? Wouldn't that be a conflict of interest? Of course it would. He opposes no such thing. The opposition is against government dependency. Federal assistance for housing and other government goodies are not part of civil rights. The civil rights movement was over the issue of being treated equally, not special.

By the way, Rep. Scott is a Tea Party guy. That's right, he's one of those men that the left, along with the NAACP, claim are not welcome in the Tea Party!

In an interview with Christian Broadcasting Network in 2010, Rep. Scott said,

"Certainly I feel like I'm the tip of the arrow at times because certainly the national media wants to talk about the fact that I'm a black Republican and some people think of that as zany that a black person would be a conservative but to me what is zany is any person black, white, red, brown or yellow not being a conservative."

"Sometimes you think to yourself man what is this for because there have been attacks simply because I'm a black conservative. If you think of everything Martin Luther King Jr. stood for which is content not color and then to be trashed in different places because you're a conservative who happens to be black it just goes against the very concept that we are doing our very best to get to the day that the person is judged by the content of the character not the color of their skin."

"I've been to dozens of Tea Party rallies. I've given at least a half a dozen or more speeches. I have not yet to find the first racist comment or the first person who approaches me from a racist perspective. I will speak very clearly here. Racism is a part of a lot of things in our country. Good people are the predominant fact of our country. I simply don't get it. There are good people and bad people in all organizations fundamentally however, when you look at the basis of the Tea Party it has nothing to do with race. It has to do with an economic recovery. It has to do with limiting the role of our government in our lives. It has to do with free markets. How do you fight that? The only way you fight that is to create an emotional distraction called racism. It doesn't have to be real. It can be rhetoric but it gets the media focusing on something other than the truth of why the Tea Party is resonating so well with the average person."

And lest you think Scott was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, he clears that up too. "It's painful at times when people shoot at you because they can or because they look for things that aren't real because you have a good story," said Scott. "The truth is the story is good today. Absolutely good story. It wasn't good living it. Let's just be real. The fact of the matter is when you're flunking out of High School its funny today because we made it right? I say "we” because me and the Lord. We made it. The fact is it wasn't fun in the 9th grade. I mean my parents were divorced and I felt a sense of abandonment. It wasn't fun growing up like that but God has been so faithful and merciful that Romans 8:28 actually works that when I discovered the truth of his word that it started bringing these pieces and jagged edges together and making smooth edges out of it and that all the things that I've gone through have now served me in a way that allows me to serve other people. That's a miracle!"

But the NAACP doesn't want to hear that. In fact, Shelton held out hope that Scott would "recognize that awesome responsibility (of working in the Senate) and that they would see "a change in how he votes and what he advocates for in a way more consistent with the NAACP."

The truth is the NAACP's agenda is anti-God, anti-Christian, anti-life, anti-marriage, anti-family anti-repsponibility, big government dependency and Rep. Scott will not adhere to their agenda. I think it's a good thing that one's character stands out the way Rep. Scott's does, that even those who normally use the issue of skin color are completely beside themselves over the only black man being in the U.S. Senate is a conservative Republican. After all, Democrats claim to be the party of minorities. So much for that hot air!

    The National Department of Education does not educate one child, no matter the color of the child!! If anything, it keeps children from being educated by keeping poor teachers in the
    classroom. It is sad that the black community doesn't realize this. All children are being shorted changed by this travesty.

  • Ron G

    Shelton should look up the definition of Racist and take a hard look at himself!

  • Kathleen

    I can see Tim Scott is in for it. The NAACP has outlived it's usefulness when it discredits other black people because they won't think their way. Talk about prejudice..... they take the prize. Why is it I wonder that black democrats are so afraid of black republicans? Cowards!

  • rosech

    He was elected for ALL and not just the few in the NCAAP. They need to get their priorities straight. They say one thing and then turn around and say or do the opposite. No wonder no one respects that organization. Racist to the core and not helping any black to be better off or better educated. Sounds just like the unions, doesn't it? Control and dues so the officers live well and do little that is good!

  • joe

    you mean the naacyp what a clown group they are. how's that million man march workin out? lmao.

  • Michael

    Surely no one expected these professional race baiters to act any differently than this. If so, those are the people who are so stupid they voted for Obama both times.

  • SONOFAMILLIONAIRE

    Why should the NAACP endorse anyone who does not represent the interests of people of color. He is a Republican, and they are against the NAACP or any other group that stands for Unity Dignity and uplifting of African Americans. As long as we are precieved to smoke crack, fry chicken and eat water melons by them, it works for them. Why should we respect anyone like Allen Keys, Michael Steele or Herman Cain. They sold their own people out long ago now be gone stay with them, we don't need any of them.

    • rosech

      You mean they were patriotic Americans and, thus, you are not. Move to another country and find out what real life is because you have sucked this country dry with stupid thinking and rhetoric.

    • medivac

      You forgot to mention your free obamafone !!

    • tim

      You sound like a welfare crack addict.

    • MGVet

      You have spoken like a true "MORON" sonofamillionarie. Because a black person man or woman is a Republican, they do not represent people of color or "black people." Why did MLK Jr. have demonstrations and march across this country? What was Dr. King's message? I will tell you. He wanted black children to grow-up beside white children and he wanted black children to go to school with white children. Dr. King wanted blacks to intergrate into American society, so blacks could be counted as American citizens. So blacks could enjoy the same freedoms as whites. Your problem sonofamillionaire is the fact that you and 95% of blacks have not left the plantation. You like the other 95% of your kind still have that "slave mentality." Your white plantation owners are now the Federal government and masta obama. People in the NAACP have that same mentality. Republicans black or white are not against the NAACP. The NAACP are against Republicans and those who do not fit their criteria of what they think a black person is today. The NAACP like to say they facilitate unity, dignity, and uplifting of black Americans . Is the NAACP treating Tim Scott with dignity? Are the NAACP treating Tim Scott as a true brother. You say you and other blacks are perceived as smoking crack and are big on consuming eating fried chicken and watermelons. You seem to have a huge chip on your shoulder. I am not black and I like fried chicken and watermelons. You don't respect Allen Keyes, Michael Steele, or Herman Cain. These our men that did not use the color of their skin to use as a crutch not to succeed in life. You say they sold their own people out long ago. How did they do that? However, you probably have respect for brainless racists like Jay Z, Jamie Foxx, and Reverend Wrong. Speaking of racism, lets not forgot the great black dope (especially on economics) masta obama. I tell you what America does not need today. America does not need people like you, and the other 95% of blacks still living on the Federal plantation. Why don't you and these black Federal plantation occupiers get your sorry asses on a boat and go back to Africa.

      Thats your problem, you only want people that will do for Black people only, and you should be wanting what is fair and equal for All America.

    Martin Luther King Jr was a Republican so its fair to say that NAACP is more than racist.Ignorance is bliss.I give this guy credit for standing up to the true racism in this country and that's the likes of JJ and sharpton and lets not forget the team in the white house.Sad very Sad.

      I say to Mr. Scott, Just keep your head up high and be proud of it. I will never vote for these Liberal/Democrats do the mentality of this race card, blame game, rhetoric. The Democratic party are the racist party and they do keep African Americans down, just look at the history of it. African Americans need to wake up and re-educate themselves of really what the Democratic Party is all about.

    • rmwayne

      I keep hearing the Democrats keep blacks down. But you're wrong. They hate whites. Especially those of us who are white, from Dixie, Christian, heterosexual and conservative. They've been like that since the mid '60s. They steal (they call it taxing) from us to get the black welfare vote.

    • Tomato Cain

      Martin Luther King had a dream; but he also had a vision. And it was not a vision of one race only; it was a vision of freedom, independance and overcoming the challenges.

    • Clan Mom

      King was a dreamer, inspired, loved the people of this country. He wasn't just for the black "man".

    • Lee Baldwin

      and all people being equal.

    • Mike

      And that is why liberal types killed him.

    • Clan Mom

      I laud the man. He is a true patriot. I'm sure the liberal media will do everything to persecute him in the coming weeks and months.

    • fedupinky

      Then the liberal media should be called out for being racists. In this case it would be completely true.

    • Lee Baldwin

      the MAIN STREAM MEDIA is about as commie/PINKO racist as it possibly gets. How that? I called their slimey butts out. (if the MSM was anything but what I just said they are, they would REPORT TRUTH about the crimes Obama is doing like telling the Marines to STAND DOWN when those Americans in the Benghazi Enbassy were being attacked. Instead the MSM will not speak about that because of obama orders). ~God Bless America!

    • 44rd11
    • TheSunDidIt

      I remember Dr. King and what he said in his speeches. I didn't need to hear it over and over either to remember it. And I'm a white guy raised with nothing but, white people, around me. My parents taught us the same thing Dr. King said, judge people by their content and not their color. Guess what, I judge this new Senator to be an excellent man of God and a fantastic representative of our nation and our people. I judge the NAACP as a pack of racist mongrels who have no interest in "black people" at all but, only MONEY AND POWER. If they cared about black people, they would reject abortion for almost any reason. Who's children are getting these abortions and who's are dying? BLACK FAMILIES AND BLACK CHILDREN. Don't TELL ME that the NAACP cares one whit about "black families" or "civil rights". That's a crock. They just hung their rope on Dr. King's shoulders because he was going their way and they let him pull them, in their cart, along.

    • rightsman

      Planned Parenthood takes an average of 1,500 babies out of the womb of black women every day of the year. Blacks comprised about 20% of the population of the United States during the 1960's. Today it is between 12% and 13%.

      Planned Parenthood is supported by the man in the White House, and there is talk of expanding its work to Africa. Margaret Sanger, the Founder of Planned Parenthood worked with the Ku Klux Klan prior to founding Planned Parenthood. Peace

      King was a communist and one of his lieutenants was Jesse Jackson. The media, the academic world and Hollywood have made some kind of hero out of him, but then they've done the same thing with Obama too. Do a bit of online digging and you'll find out what King was really about.

    • rob

      Thank you, most people dont know or remember that Dr. King was a Republican just as Lincoln was the first President to be a Republican. I believe that the NAACP is racists beyond words and in fact in the words of Malcom X who by no means loved the Republicans, "loathed" Democrats to the point of saying that if a Black man voted for a Democrat he was a chump because they are racist! Knowledge is power, lets get the knowledge out there that conservatism works "for" the people!

    • Seymour Kleerley

      King like most Blacks in the South were Republicans because the Dixiecrats were the power that beat them down. After the mid 60's when the national Democrat party and some Liberal Republicans outlawed institutional racism, Blacks naturally switched parties and for the forseeable future will never rejoin one that reeks of racism and a return to the 50's (today's GOP.).

    If I am white and from Africa, can I call myself an African America? If not, then is African American a Racist Term? Do you have to be Black to be called African American? If so, then why don't we just call them Blacks, or Negros, which both mean black? Am I a white, or am I an English-American and American Indian mixed? Does that make me a Euro-indian-American. If so, would that indicate to some that I am from India? Why don't we just call ourselves Americans! That would solve it, and then what difference would it be if you were Black or White? Would that mean that I could not have special status if I called myself White on a job application or a school application? Sick and tired of all this segregation by race that is perpetuated by the Revs. of Black descent like Jesse J., and Jeremiah W.., the NAACP, and the Black Caucus. What makes any of us who are legal citizens anything other than Americans? It is only for political purposes that it is done.

    • vet

      Excellent job Wayne.The fact this is a melting pot of all races should be inherent to all that are Americans.The Indians still make money from the government by even being a 1/4 breed and the fact that all of us have some minority in them should question the sanity of those that think they lived a couple of hundred years ago. It explains why they turned democrat from republican,because they would loose all the free bees that comes with it.

      You know know that I read some of these letters and really think about it...Why do they call themselves african or Afro-American?

      If they are Black and they just say "I am American" then we will already know they are American with Afro decent. Why do they need to say it?

      In fact it would be even more appropriate for a white person from africa to say, he is African American because we would not know that other wise. but the black people we would know that, No need for them to say that.
      Got that idea somewhat from an earlier letter.

      Folks like Jesse and Jeremiah and the NAACP make a lot of money using racial controversy as their playground. They manage to keep the pot boiling while most people, regardless of heritage, do not have racial concerns.

    • Christine

      OBAMA has divided this country with regards to races and socio-economic class warfare .......He chose to be Black even though he is equally white because he knew if he ran on that platform to begin with, he would get he Black vote and we all saw that happen. Then he went on to class warfare and we saw how that worked in the election as well. Everything he does is methodically planned to see if it will help him with his REAL PLANS for this country. OBAMA has a different vision for this country and it is headed that way.

      Unfortunately, keeping racism alive is the agenda to manipulate society by social conditioning. Racisim is big buisness and their leaders have sold them down the river, By propagating and continally tell their people that their on going condition is the fault of others, instead of telling them that their future is in their hands and they can change it or not.

    • steveni

      To get any benefits in America from being AFRICAN AMERICAN, you have to be black. A white South African tried that in college and was told he had to be a Black African to use African American as his race.

    • Tired

      But are you American? If so, go ahead and call yourself African-American if you like. IMHO you have more of a right to that designation than the Blacks that have never even been to Africa.

      On a different note, I work with 2 Africans. They take offense to the term African-American when its used by the Blacks of this country.

      I am white and lived in Congo. People there think tribally. They see
      huge differences between tribal groups--very important differences to them--
      and that is what causes many of the genocides, etc that go on all
      over Africa. I think it's weird that Americans have any desire to join
      a generalized "african" grouping. There is no such thing. I lived
      among the Bakongo, among the Bakuba as a missionary kid. They do not think of
      themselves as having a grouping with any other group, The president of Congo
      while I lived there, Mobutu, tried to get people to think of themselves
      as "Congolese". The idea proceeded forward a little, but it's still
      a foreign concept. When I graduated from HS I came to the states
      to make a new life. As a white person I could not become a citizen or engage

      AMERICANS are AMERICANS. In America we are all immigrants due to one reason or another, and we are all mixtures of everything. We have very few people that function under any tribal idea--but rather we intermix freely. The idea that there

      OK...Where to start without someone 'spell checking' me...
      What is your definition of thinking 'Tribally'?
      In America, although the way Africans were introduced, was wrong from mostly the English and the French. They were the ones to 'ship' Negros out of their own will..
      They made them slaves at 1st...
      I had nothing to do with that. I'm a product of killing Jews in your eyes.
      After all these generations, if they looked back, where would they rather be?
      Here in America, or Africa?
      All Our Ancestors Suffered to make life better for our children...
      That is the concept of it all...
      Don't you think that? Make Life Better, Not Worse?
      Accept the Consesquenses the Ansestor Made?

      All Have Suffered To Try To Make Life Better..
      Balance is too overweighed..

      Iguess you would have to clarify.....White African-Americans?? Sounds clunky, doesn't it?

      African American. Gee, do you think the African part is really necessary?
      Don't you think most people would get this right away??

      Duh-h-h!

    • Phil

      Funny since by the left I'm supposedly a toothless undeducated country bumpkin hick I'm too stupid to say a long word like "African American". I'd rather just say black like it's always been. My black friends don't seem to mind. I don't really insist on them calling ME "white European American" eh? They just refer to me as white......I'm ok with that. We recognize each other too as "Americans" and I'd fight for them just as much as they'd fight for me.

    • Joanne13

      And it's the 'homogenizing' of AUTHENTIC American culture too (which is dying more daily)! It's too late to change it but oh if ONLY our predecessors hadn't allowed people to make distinctions according to PRIOR nationality! It's such a shame...

    • Nottakenyan

      Two of Ameica's biggest racists are sleeping in the White House on American tax dollars. If ethnicity and culture are so important to certain people, then they should move back to their home country. If you want to live here, than be an American PERIOD.

      That's only your opinion, chump. The Tea Party is alive and well and getting stronger and it will destroy your Marxist buddies.

      Edward53 the left can't win no matter how long it takes for you to fall and you will fall,and damned hard you and the world know that you can't continue to give out these entitlements, sooner or later you will out grow your provider,

    • 44rd11

      "the left can't win" - what country do you live in? do you have blinders on? the left is winning hands down - and you can give entitlements and increase them as long as there are people that will vote for them. It has long been known that Americans can and are bought by the politicians they send to the government - Americans have been bought for years - and with their own money.

    • 44rd11

      The "Tea Party" lost big time this last election - the Senate is stronger under the fist of Harry Reid and we get Obama for four more years. Alan West LOST in Florida as I supposed he would - the tea party - a disparate disorganized group of "partisans' that haven't the wit to get organized, become a real party with elected officials at every level of government - hanging on by their toenails to the failed establishment Republicans, that have been so marginalized by the socialist Democrats, they might as well stay home.

    • thestormy

      In your dreams! We are getting stronger. Enjoy your 3 extra taxes that are going to kick in Jan. 2013 that you voted for.I find it humorous that many Democrats who voted for obummacare are now trying to stop the tax. I don't mind suffering in order to watch bho supporters have to face the hard reality that bho and company lied like dogs to you and you fell for it while calling the right names because we told the truth about your anointed one. Every medical device used for your treatment will be taxed down to the rubber gloves and mask that your Dr. uses. I have stocked up on crying towels to hand out to my democrat friends. All of you are going to need them. If you are a senior citizen,you are going to be hit hard by obummacare.Be ready to talk to your Dr. about end of life treatment every 2 yrs. If you are over 70 and have a life threatening problem,15 non medical people will decide if you get treatment. lots of luck if you don't have a LOT OF MONEY!!!!

    • 44rd11

      I have no problem talking to my doctor about end of life - can you just give me a pill and I'll go quietly to peace. THANK God - I lived when I lived to see the greatness of our country - and sad to have seen it's demise, but grateful that I don't live in the future of our children and grandchildren.

    • thestormy

      I have already told my children to not extend my life if I am dieing. When I am ask about it by a Dr. per orders of obumma I will tell him/her,"I want to live" just to pi$$ them off.

    • Tomato Cain

      Freedom will never go out of style; it is in the hearts and minds of all who face tyranny. Overtaxation is a runaway cart or a hungry growing beast that will eventually die.

    • 44rd11

      No, it is what leads to civil war - and death - ask old king George why the Americans took to war? Ask Obama what he truly expects by ever increasing taxes on those that can still pay taxes. go back in history and ask Rehoboam what happened to his kingdom, where did 11/12ths of his kingdom disappear to and why? It's in the bible if you need to look it up.

      As a political movement, socialism includes a diverse array of political philosophies, ranging from reformism to revolutionary socialism. Proponents of state socialism advocate the nationalisation of the means of production, distribution and exchange as a strategy for implementing socialism. In contrast, libertarian socialism proposes the traditional view of direct worker's control of the means of production and opposes the use of state power to achieve such an arrangement, opposing both parliamentary politics and state ownership. Democratic socialism seeks to establish socialism through democratic processes and propagate its ideals within the context of a democratic political system....Just in case you don't.

    • pfbonney

      That's pretty good, Niles. Very illuminating. While I do enjoy coming here for opinion, I enjoy facts even more. Well done.

    • Jane

      You are spoiling all their fun. They just like to use a label that some talk show guy taught. Or may e the pretty blond one. I wonder which one of the choices they would choose. They still choose evil. Intellectual discrimination not tolerated. Don't confuse people with the facts.

    • truthseeker

      Progressive Socialism uses the minorities as vehicles to attain a political agenda under the guise of redistribution and social justice. The end goal is a one world order where all people are controlled by an elitist minority. Where they have all the real wealth and freedoms and everyone else does not.

    • Phil

      All in all no matter what "shade" of "socialism" you want to call it, it all ends up the same in the end with a world government headed by ONE "great ruler" who controls all. Funny how prophecies in Revelations in the Bible seem to line up with marx's manifesto. What's sad is the many who still believe in marx's system over Thomas Jefferson and our founding fathers, who right here within our borders are working in our government and out to try to achieve marx's ultimate goal. THIS is the true tyranny and must be stopped.

    • Drifanwulf

      It's we the inheritors of Thomas Jefferson and the rest of our founding fathers against the Marxist's. It's a hard war to fight but I think we can win it.

    • Dave

      Socialism is just like feeding a horse, what goes in might be pretty or sweet, but it always turns to $#!T.

    • sandman

      Ok I get what you are saying, but bho has such a big say in this "democratic socialism" you speak of, but it is a direct contradiction to what you said about the opposition of state powers to achieve said goal, in other words big goverment. I can understand the libertarian type of socialism, with no gov. intervention, but no way wihth any gov involvement, that is communism.

      Socialism was the economic engine of the old Soviet Union, Fascist Italy and Germany, also most of the Euro countries today that are facing economic collapse.
      Socialism is about Government Central Control . . . it fails everywhere it is instituted . . .

    • 44rd11

      Socialism is Socialism - Democratic - you mean like the Soviet Union? They elected their Party Members to the Duma and socialism was the death knell of that government.
