A Gathering Of Scum

Well, today the NAACP is holding its "One Nation Working Together" rally in DC, all united behind a message of... um... er... well, a whole laundry list of "social justice" causes:

  • Provide immediate relief for those who are currently unemployed.
  • Extend jobless benefits, COBRA, mortgage assistance, and other initiatives for those currently out of work.
  • Target help for populations and communities in the greatest need
  • Ensure that all people have access to affordable, high quality education throughout their lives, from pre-school through college
  • Provide for teacher training and support necessary to continuously improve classroom practice and serve students better
  • Refocus Our Nation's Fiscal Priorities
  • End the foreclosure epidemic and save the homes of America's families
  • Reform bankruptcy laws to protect families and working people
  • Prioritize affordable housing for all

And, in pursuit of those goals, they've assembled a mighty coalition of organizations to get bodies into DC. Including a lot of organizations that, quite frankly, ought to have been excluded (or, at least, not cheerfully welcomed and embraced) to the march. Here are a few that jumped out at me:

  • Sojourners: the far-left allegedly religious coalition secretly funded by George Soros.
  • The SEIU: Barack Obama's purple-shirted Brute Squad.
  • Rainbow PUSH Coalition: Jesse Jackson's non-profit that he used to pay off his mistress after she bore his illegitimate daughter. Hired former Congressman and convicted sex offender Mel Reynolds after his release from prison.
  • National Council of La Raza: "La Raza" is Spanish for "The Race." They've faced numerous charges of being racial separatists and supremacists.
  • AFL-CIO: A subsidiary of La Cosa Nostra, Inc.
  • Democracy For America: Howard Dean's private PAC.
  • International Socialist Organization: the name says it all.
  • Detroit Democratic Socialists Of America: see above.
  • Democratic Socialists of America: see above, again.
  • Communist Party USA: COME ON, PEOPLE!
  • ANSWER Coalition: literally, a Communist front group.
  • Coffee Party Progressives: yet another astroturfed attempt to discredit the Tea Party movement.
  • Code Pink: the anti-war psychopaths and sociopaths who found common cause with the lunatic Cindy Sheehan.

Now, of course, all these groups have every legal right to exist, let alone hold their public events. But no one is obligated to cooperate with them, to find common cause, to lend their own credibility at joint events. Indeed, it can easily be argued that other groups have an obligation to distance themselves from groups that they find repugnant.

Hell, it's done to the Right all the time. Remember the huge stir when the John Birch Society was allowed to sponsor CPAC? And man, the Birchers are just nuts, not dangerous nuts. I can't recall the last time a Bircher event led to a single arrest -- please contrast with Code Pink, La Raza, or any of the countless unions on the list.

The NAACP is willing to side with racists, thugs, criminals, socialists, Communists, and who knows what else is on that list in order to advance their goals.

Noted and logged, NAACP. And this will be remembered the next time you bring up the occasional rogue nuts (and occasional leftist plants) that show up at Tea Party events.

Because at the Tea Party events, unlike your own event today, they weren't expressly and cordially invited to attend.

James H:

I, too, am in Washington, DC!!! Actually, it's just because I live here. And I'm not so much "in DC" as I am "adjacent to DC." And I'm not so much "rallying" as I am "doing the dishes," "taking out the trash," and "cleaning out the cat's litterbox."

Honestly, I've got better things to do than rally with the usual suspects. It's the same old same old on the left, and I'm not too terribly fond of where the right's gone. I'll see you Oct. 30.

James, you wanna be Wizbang's Official Correspondent to the Comedy Central rally? We could use one.

I'd be especially interested in the racial breakdown of the attendees. I'll wager that it will be disproportionately white...

...not that there's anything wrong with that. Unless you're conservative.

I've attended several Tea Parties, Town Hall meetings, and political rallies. EVERY time EVERYONE who was attending came there of their own accord. Sometimes folks did ride buses (I didn't), but they either paid their own way, or got a sponsorship of some kind.

And if they had signs at all they made them themselves!

And EVERY time the folks attending cleaned up after themselves and left the venue looking better than when they arrived. This includes the 9/12 rallies and Glenn Beck's rally.

Many if not most of the rank & file Union members attending today's event are being required and/or PAID to attend. Even so, I wonder how those rank & file Union members are going to feel standing next to or under a Communist banner???

Expect CNNMSNBCCBSABCNBCPBS to provide 24 hour live coverage of this "historic" event.

I wonder if Rick "Dirty" Sanchez is going now that he has free time on his hands.

Sorry, Jay Tea, I'm going on my own recognizance. Probably gonna take my camera, too. I'll get you a Truthiness T-shirt.

I can hear the stentorian announcer in tone:

"Brought to you by:

the Communist Party of the U.S.,

and a whole bunch of wholly-owned subsidiaries, whose names constitutes various permutations and combinations of the words "Peace, Justice, Freedom, Working, Families, Committee, and America."

"Any idea which "populations and communities" the NAACP has in mind?"

The usual and perpetual groups. You know, the ones always yammering about their own group 'pride'.
I wish they had a little pride, instead of being perpetual slaves or parasites.

"The NAACP is willing to side with racists, thugs, criminals, socialists, Communists, and who knows what else is on that list in order to advance their goals."

Yes, scum mingles well with other scum. "One Nation working together". Nothing more than a repackaged "hope and change".

Breaking news - the NAACP sides with its membership! Stop the presses!

Perhaps the "leaders" of these groups will also suggest a way to PAY for all their WANTS.

Besides the US Taxpayer.

Or are they still under the childish assumption that all their wants will be taken care of "for free".
