The NAACP overlooks calls for lynching because their buddies want to hold the rope

It turns out the race pimps who run today's NAACP aren't particularly bothered with the truly vile people who were recently caught on tape spouting racial abuse and advocating stereotypical violence towards black people at a "progressive" rally targeting conservative oil executives the Koch brothers, mostly because the venal people hurling those noxious epithets happened to be liberals who were targeting the right kind of black people:

"In response to The Daily Caller’s request for comment on a video showing progressive protesters calling for somebody to 'string up' African American Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, or 'send him back into the fields' or 'cut off all his toes and feed them to him one-by-one,' NAACP spokesman Hilary Shelton pointed to the organization’s recent resolution calling for a 'civil political discourse.'"

Contrast this curiously mild (to say the least) rebuke of the NAACP's political and ideological brethren with that organization's hysterical overreaction to an alleged nearly identical incident when they passed a formal resolution condemning the Tea Party over accusations that black members of Congress such as John Lewis were subjected to a torrent of racial abuse and threats while climbing the Capitol steps on their way to vote for Obamacare, allegations that have never been proven despite the presence of hundreds of still and video cameras documenting the scene (many wielded by the legislators' own staffs), not to mention conservative media mogul Andrew Breitbart's announced reward of $100,000 cash to anyone who could provide proof of any such mistreatment.

The disparity between the two official responses is nothing short of stunning, particularly given that the incident that garnered the shoulder-shrugging, we-don't-really-care reaction was the only one to be documented as having actually occurred.

NAACP apparently now stands for the National Association for the Advancement of CERTAIN People.  How low that once-noble group has sunk.
