Senator Tim Scott responds to NAACP ‘civil right’ accusations

Senator Tim Scott was on with Greta tonight to discuss the NAACP accusing him of not believing in civil rights. If Greta hadn’t continued to press him on the issue, his only response would have been that the accusations are ‘ridiculous’. Short, sweet, and exactly right.

He also talks about his first day as a Senator.

    Yeees, NAACP gets an “F” for freaking stupid.

    • PatrickHenrysBody

      They don’t even get a grade in my book. They get a “0” or “Incomplete”!

      • Orangeone

        0 like ZERO in our WH both #Failures ! Love it.

        • PatrickHenrysBody


      • badbadlibs

        bo gave himself an “incomplete” and still got re-hired! Stupid, stupid voters!!

        • keyesforpres

          He meant incomplete as in he wasn’t done destroying this country.

          • badbadlibs

            Now it makes sense. 🙁

          • PatrickHenrysBody

            LOL! Right!

    • Don

      The NAACP is the equivalent of the KKK (Ku Klux Klan). Nothing more, nothing less. Anyone who judges anyone by the color of their skin is a racist no matter what color of skin those making the judgement has. Technically, the NAACP could be considered a “hate group” and should be treated accordingly.

      • Well said Don. I was thinking the very same thing.

        Q: What’s the difference between the KKK and the NAACP?
        A: One is 3 letters long and the other is 5.

      • keyesforpres

        Well said.

      • Wisewoman2

        Sad to say that although I am an AA I agree with you 1000%. This once great organization that had on its board whites and blacks has been corrupted beyond repair. This current president is the worst of the lot. All he knows how to do is try to destroy someone’s character especially if he’s a republican. I observed the way they treated Romney a good man who was trying to inspire them and tell them the truth and it was truly horrible. Once upon a time I supported this organization with my money and my effort. Today I despise them as much as I despise Obama.

    • maybetoday777

      The National Association for the Advancement of COLORED People. Notice the word COLORED. Yea, they are not racist. Not only are they racist but they are APARTHEID (minority ruling majority) preaching Devils.

      • Shameika Schreier

        “Colored” was the common term used for the first half of the 20th century and they needed “Advancement”. There was a true and good reason for the founding of this organization and for a lot of the work that has been done. The current issues are: 1) Too many in the organization lack the character of the early members and 2) They seem to think that black people should all speak with one voice, the NAACP voice, and can’t have valid, differing views.

  • Orangeone

    Thank you Scoop! Sorry I was just a tiny bit ahead of you and posted a link on the Ted Cruz site. I so LOVE this man! What an inspiration he is and an outstanding US Senator. I especially love that his high school streamed the swearing in and he is going to speak there in a couple of weeks about hard work, work ethic, and how the positive influences to think for yourself help to capture the American Dream! I was especially glad that he mentioned his 14 years as a small business owner!

    Tim Scott and Ted Cruz are great new leaders in our US Senate!

    • This is the first time I heard the man speak and I have criticisms, but I do hope the best for him. Sounds a little bit scripted/rehearsed, but I don’t know much about politics other than I want real conservatives in office. I am really going to miss Allen West in DC- I hope he continues the fight.

      • Orangeone

        This is actually Tim Scott’s true persona.  He is a gentleman properly raised to be respectful by his mom.

      • keyesforpres

        Tim Scott actually had a much better voting record than West.

  • Joe

    Did you ever notice that Democrats are ALWAYS nasty

    and Republicans are NOT nasty

    I wish Sen. Scott all the best

    • c4pfan

      Yes. I wish the GOP would be nasty right back.

      • PhillyCon

        They are too scared of being labeled “mean” “extremist” and “racist” to do so. It boils down to their fear of the MSM.

    • aposematic

      So right, the new D civility is hate for all not towing the Marxist line put on steroids. I can’t remember the last time I heard a D speak without spewing the nasty like spittle.

    • PhillyCon

      Yes. They “get away” with all the vitriol and “mean spiritedness” they accuse the Republicans of.

      It’s very old, and its tiresome just pointing out the continual hypocrisy. If there was a press, and not an MSM, it would get reported. But, its left to us, to point out to the clueless, unfortunately.

    • badbadlibs

      I noticed! They are just nasty, rude, smarmy individuals. I think either they were all raised by jackals or it’s just inherent with the ideology. You have to be a nasty, heartless creature to be a democrat…but, hey they approve of the most vile of behaviors, so guess it shouldn’t come as a surprise.

  • PatrickHenrysBody

    Ben Jealous? Seriously? Ben JEALOUS! LOL!!! Uh, if there ever was a fitting name for someone!

    • lol.

    • keyesforpres

      I know huh? LOL. The first time I saw him I thought he was white. He’s got way more white in him than black.

      • PatrickHenrysBody

        He’s an Oreo in my book. But instead of having a sweet creamy filling, there is a disgusting load of vile excrement.

  • highered32

    NAACP is spot on on this issue!! Lets see, Tim Scott has a terrible voting record when it comes to civil liberty issues. Scott has voted for FISA, the Patriot Act extensions, NDAA, CISPA. Wake up and learn from Ron Paul’s example!

    • Orangeone

      Why don’t the Libertarians create their own blog site?

      • PhillyCon

        LOL. Good one.

      • keyesforpres

        They do have their own blogs where they spew venom towards Israel and Jews….they occasionally crawl out and show up at conservative sites. Especially if the crazy uncle is mentioned.

        Had one wish pancreatic cancer on me a couple months ago. Charming.

        • Orangeone

          Are you kidding me?  Do any of them show up on this site?  If so, please name them so we can call them out.  I have identified at least to Libtn so far.

          • keyesforpres

            A few, but they can’t get nasty like they do at other sites because they’d be banned here.
            I had one admit he didn’t frequent that site that he was only there because of the article on the crazy uncle. They put his name in their feed and flock to any article mentioning his name.

    • PatrickHenrysBody

      Then here’s what the NAACP (via their lackeys in Congress) has voted on:

      Speaking of Ron Paul, his son proposed a Senate amendment that Jay Rockefeller, who was backed by the NAACP, killed.

      The NAACP has done more against civil rights and civil liberties than what they claim Scott has done. They are as hypocritical as those who support them and those whom they serve.

      • PatrickHenrysBody

        Excuse me, I am in error. The NAACP are the lackeys, not their Congressional bosses. My apologies.

        • PatrickHenrysBody

          I apologize again. I meant to say members of the NAACP are the lackeys. Sorry, sorry.

          • Orangeone

            psssst there is an edit button 🙂

            • PatrickHenrysBody


      • Conniption Fitz

        I like some of Ron Paul’s positions (banish the FED, back the dollar with gold), but his legalization of drugs, prostitution and human trafficking is damnable and DEAD WRONG!

        We do not need Islamist drug gangs and sexual activists having free access to our children, schools, streets, etc.

        We need to fight immorality, drugs and the brand of Islam that is spreading over the earth with all our resources to our last breath.

        • keyesforpres

          Oh my gosh! I did not know the anti-semitic crazy uncle supported human trafficking! I knew the other stuff, but unreal….he supports open borders too.

        • PatrickHenrysBody

          I don’t like some of his isolationist views. Yes, appealing to the debauchery of others does not help either. I will never agree to Islamic anything. Islam does not deserve freedom because they are anti-freedom. There are some of Paul’s views I agree with, though.

    • Ron Paul’s example is to be about half right half of the time.

      So no.

      • PhillyCon


        Remember the flack Rand Paul took on the Civil Rights Law? The last thing we need is that. Seriously. Lots of doobies being passed around. LOL.

    • keyesforpres

      Oh, you mean the crazy uncle that couldn’t be bothered to show up to vote on the fiscal cliff bill?

    • Wisewoman2

      And what do these votes have to do with race or not caring about Civil Rights? Please explain.

  • PatrickHenrysBody

    Banning the EPA, period! That would be a good start! As far as eliminating greenhouse gases are concerned, Congress and the NAACP are a couple of the largest emitters! They are full of hot air on a consistent and continual basis.

  • Ray

    Tim Scott is in the forefront of Blacks who do not ascribe to the feed at the teet of government in order to survive that most black leaders push. He will be a benefit to the Senate.
    I hope he becomes a LEADER there, it will show that they do not have to live in abject poverty and fear of death every day.

  • This is what Propagandist Revisionist Democrats have done- turned their Lie into misperceived historical fact and truth.

    The Democratic Party, Democrats, now Liberal Socialist Marxists, were the party and people of Slavery, Segregation, and Jim Crow, who specifically created the KKK- a Democratic terror organization to intimidate and murder Black citizens and in particular, Black Congressional leaders of the Republican Party Congress of the late 1800s, for which was terrorized the South for decades, via shootings, lynchings, etc..

    And with Democratic / Dixiecratic political leaders like Sen Robert Byrd and Gov George Wallace, etc., institutionalized, via Fed govt laws, the oppression and suppression of Blacks in America. The Democratic Party Slogan from 1861 to the 1960s was quote- “Democrats-The White Man’s Party”

    But Liberals, and their sycophant organizations like the NAACP, CBC, etc, never mention any of this do they. No, they just deny it all happened, and rewrite history, ie; revisionism- the whitewashing of historical facts, to wipe away all of their past actions, thus their hypocrisy and lies to project their images of always being the party and people that fight for minorities Freedom and Rights, as if Republicans under President Abraham Lincoln were the Confederacy and Lost the Civil war to them.

    Democrats, and only being what they say they are, and not what truth and historical facts say, to say the least is absurd, and only indoctrinated useful marxist idiots will believe their propagandist narrative hypocrisy of lies.

    Just like Hitler, Democrats use propagandist lies of projectionism against their victims- Republicans and Conservatives, aka Patriotic America People to perfection, for political purpose, to manipulate the public perception of what is true, instead of what is actually historically and currently real and true.. Thus to gain and maintain power and control, the left manipulates public perception in believing their lies.

    But the public, once indoctrinated to believe the Big Liberal Democratic Lies, will never come back to reality and truth, for the loyal political base of the left-ignorance is bliss. That’s what Indoctrination can do to people. Hence their ignorance and blind obedience as useful idiot tools of and for the far left anti-American cause, aka Socialist Marxist Communism.

    • PatrickHenrysBody

      I can’t argue with anything you commented on.

    • ryanomaniac

      Like Ann Coulter or not her book Mugged expound beautifully the fiction being told about race in this country. Its really an awesome book.

    • I totally agree with the projectionism. Democrats/modern liberals purposefully get out ahead of critiques that they know can be used on them.
      For instance, they scream “house slave” because that term applies to themselves
      They scream their opponents are hateful because they are hateful.
      They scream injustice because what they want is unjust.
      They scream anti-science because what they propose is not based on valid science.
      They create a shield much like the childhood chant of “I’m rubber, you are glue”

    • badbadlibs

      George soros must be thrilled to have found an entire nation of useful idiots. What a pity and a crime.

    • keyesforpres

      What most people don’t know is the KKK was formed to go after Republicans. They lynched over 3000 blacks….but they also lynched over 1000 white…Republicans.

      This book has a picture of 4 people the KKK lynched…2 black and 2 white.

  • poljunkie

    The NAACP complains to complain- when they see an opportunity- if you know what I mean, and I think you do.

  • PFFV

    The NAACP is pure Reverse Racism and it is perfectly justifiable in the Racists Minds. I have lost faith in my Country and my Government. The average citizen doesn’t give a damn about anything but themselves and it makes me sick. My hatred runs deep for the left and anything progressive, especially RINO’s! Traitorous, and in my opinion Treasonous Bastards is what they are!

    • Orangeone

      Look to Tim Scott, Trey Gowdy, Allen West, Michele Bachmann, Steve King, Jason Chaffetz, Ted Cruz, Louie Gohmert and many others as the inspiration to continue the fight for America. This country was not founded on an easy plan and it cannot be maintained on other either. I too have had tough days where I wanted to toss in the towel. But I look to the leaders we do have that truly speak for us. I also look at the Scoop community, people I would NEVER have come to know without this struggle and I’m thankful everyday for that blessing.

      • keyesforpres

        Bachmann has just introduced a bill to overturn Obamacare again. Wish we could get a veto proof majority in the House and Senate (would take miracle in the Senate).

        • Orangeone

          Ted Cruz is going to introduce in the Senate. We do have Tim Scott in the Senate now too so fingers crossed.

          • keyesforpres

            I bet we could get some dems to come around. Some are realizing how bad some of those taxes are in O-NO-care. They were actually wanting the medical device tax to be postponed.

            • Orangeone

              Some of those Dems, like Al Franken from MN are up for re-election in 2014 and are posturing. I don’t know about the other Dems members.  We need to remind the Repub opponents in 2014 and ALL voters, that they are the ones that passed ObamaCare, supported the gov’t when it was challenged, and failed and refused to repeal it or portions of it.
              I think we DO have a chance with Dem voters because they will realize in their pocketbook what the true impacts are.  Just wait until coverage is denied. By then it is too late because that won’t happen until after the 2016 pres election.  The Dems timed everything in ObamaCare to a tee.

  • tinlizzieowner

    If he became a leftist tomorrow, the NAACP would be the first to be screaming bloody murder about the way the left is maligning him. 😉 😉
    Situational Hypocrisy.
    By the way, how many Black Democratic Senators are there?

  • Rocco11

    The Left is a disease.

    • Conniption Fitz

      It’s plain old-fashioned sin-sickness.

      Socialist is the religion of the envy, covetousness and greed, feeling entitled to steal, take without earning, breaking the 8th and 10th Commandments.

      Then there is their love of sexual promiscuity, perversion and abortion breaking the 6th and 7th Commandments.

      The leftist repertoire breaks all of GOD’s Commandments.

      The result, consequence of Leftism (marxism, communism, Islamism, etc.) is broken lives, domination by ugly, corrupt, evil people, broken economies, disease, destruction, despair, darkness, death.

      “There is a way that seems right to man, but the end of it is death.” (Proverbs 14:12 and many other Scriptures)

      Only God can raise the dead back to life through repentance and redemption: John 5:24, I John 3:14

      Jesus is the Way (of True Love), the Truth and the Life. Who has Christ has Life. Who does not have Christ, does not. I John 5:12-14

      • badbadlibs

        And yet so many say their way is the Godly way. The left invokes Jesus to justify their social agenda. I want to scream every time I hear a leftist say “Jesus said, what you do for the least of these….” They always leave out the “MY BRETHERN” part and have no clue who those people are…hint: it’s not any leftist!
        Really well said post, conniption fitz! (love your user name, btw!)

    • Ray

      and so is the Republican establishment who redraws congressional districts so conservatives have a hard time winning.

  • Conniption Fitz

    Tim Scott is a congenial, well-spoken, intelligent, articulate gentleman with cogent, logical, rational and INSPIRING responses. Very impressive.

    He’s intellectually and morally head and shoulders above his petty, partisan, racist black supremacist, marxist NAACP accusers.

    • Orangeone

      I’m jealous too 🙂 I’m in a very blue state with the fraudster Franken….ugh. Hopefully our great House candidate that lost, Chris Fields, will run against Al Franken. Mr. Fields can stand side by side to Tim Scott and carry that same message loud and clear to many of today’s youth.

  • ryanomaniac

    What can I say about the naacp that hasn’t been said here.

    On this subject, whether you like her or not, should read the book Mugged. There are tons of interesting historical FACTS. Ann Coulters book was hard to put down for sure. Its a must read and you’ll learn things you didn’t know before then and like I said many facts to use when talking too stupid liberals or blacks who have been lied to for fifty years.

  • Arrrggghhh

    I have to be honest, I’ve struggled with my thoughts about race ever since the election. I’ve always thought, like Mr. Scott, that smaller government, economic growth, and specific issues like school choice are the answers to the problems in the black community. After 50 years of the so called “Great Society”, the black community, in general, is in shambles. After seeing 95% of all blacks voting for Obama, I was tempted to hate black people. However, when I see Tim Scott, I have a glimmer of hope and I’m not ready to hate.

    One of the things that I would love to see is for successful black conservatives (Scott, West, Cain, Sowell, Williams, Thomas, Rice, Love, etc.) launch a massive education campaign in black communities. Perhaps a wealthy benefactor could bankroll a media campaign.

    • Conniption Fitz

      Excellent idea. This is what Newt was talking about during the primaries.

      • Arrrggghhh

        I think it’s important to start getting the message out BEFORE it hits the fan. When our economy collapses and the government dependency handouts get scarce, the recipients should already have heard what the solution is. I think that if we wait until after, it will be too late.

    • pryrplz


    • Orangeone

      The one thing we don’t need to do is push school choice. If our tax dollars are going to fund public education, we need to fix the problem not redistribute youth to other schools. The better solution is to shut the public education system down and require private education or home schooling.

      I love your idea on the massive education campaign. I would not center it on race, gender or economic status. We need a grass roots effort, nonprofit organization that will enable all of us to get out the true message of the American Dream. Hopefully these leaders will join, sponsor and educate, as Tim Scott is doing. But we all have the responsibility as adults, some of us are business owners to get the truth out there.

      • Arrrggghhh

        Your points are well taken.

        I completely agree with you in theory on school choice. My only argument is that I don’t think fixing the entire education system will ever happen. Although, I also have to admit that I actually don’t much like the “it will never happen” argument. I hear it too often from opponents of the FairTax. One thing that I really like about school choice is that it exposes how awful the union laden public schools are. Perhaps school choice is a stepping stone to fixing the entire system.

        Regarding the education initiative. I agree that although it should not focus on race or economic status per se, we do need to recognize that minority and government dependent (aka poor) groups are a huge threat to maintaining the principles of liberty that are what made this country great. Although the message should not differ much from South Philly to Silicon Valley, the messengers and the delivery method should. People in South Philly will be slightly more likely to hear the message if it’s coming from someone like a Tim Scott, Herman Cain or Zo rather than Mark Levin or Rush Limbaugh. That is my only point.

        • Orangeone

          I agree with you as well.  We accomplish nothing, however, by moving children to other schools where the achievement bar is lowered for everyone.  If we don’t fix the problem, we redistribute it and make American children even less educated.  One need only look at Barky Boy’s EO on discipline in schools to see that there is a racial quota on discipline as well. We cannot allow further dumbing down of our children and must draw a line in the sand to fix the schools that do not function, fire the incompetent union teachers and bring discipline, respect, accountability and God back into the classroom.

          • Wisewoman2

            My sister who is a retired teacher in the Chicago Public School system and a union member but not a supporter of their agenda was suprised to find out that the idea of Charter Schools was actually started as a concept by blacks in inner cities trying to get good schools for their kids to attend especially working lower to middle class blacks. She said they felt that their kids were stuck in bad schools that the union teachers had no incentive to help improve. She had always thought that these efforts were the results of conservatives trying to drain money from the public schools. She was fairly shocked to find out that the parents merely wanted good schools where the kids behaved and learning could take place. Again these contrary lies were spread by liberals and democrats in order to smear conservatives and republicans.

    • Excellent post! Know how you felt/feel!!!

  • There is nothing, absolutely NOTHING, that liberals hate more than a conservative black man. Just look at the scorn some real giants like Condi Rice and Allen West have received. This is a heavy burden black conservatives have to bear, which is why they need all the help and support they can get from people like us. One of the worst days last year was when Allen West lost his seat in Congress. Hopefully, he will be back soon, maybe in 2014.

    • Ray

      he lost his seat because the republican establishment redrew his district in such a way as to make it the most difficult for him to win. Remember the Republicans held the Florida state houses and could have redrawn him as safe like they did all the rest of them.
      They are NOT a conservatives friend.

    • keyesforpres

      Let’s not praise Condi too much. She helped get Raila Odinga installed in Kenya and she supports mass amnesty. She is clueless about islam.

  • aposematic

    You are probably not going to like this but: To watch some videos here I must turn off all tracking protections. After reading some of the comments here I bit the bullet and watched the Scott interview with great anticipation. Scott sounded great as I seriously began to wonder what fantasy World he was talking about.

    • cabensg

      It’s not a fantasy world it’s just a world cut off to many blacks by liberal Democrat policies. Who destroyed the black family and community with welfare which enabled liberals to herd them into tenements. Who runs the schools that don’t even teach black children to read? What Tim Scott represents is the ability to escape from the Democrat plantation and go into the real world of opportunity.

      • Wisewoman2

        so true.

    • Orangeone

      I posted some other links to Tim Scott videos on You Tube in a reply below. They are well worth the viewing!

Sometimes, when it stops letting me click like or even comment, I reset my modem/internet connection, and it fixes it, other times the “fix” doesn’t work, but you could try it next time and see if it works for you. If you hadn’t already tried that of course. Good luck.

  • The NAACP in more way’s than one can count have proven they are a group of black communist buzzards feeding on America’s goodness, wealth, and power.
    I think a gentleman from S.C. back in the 1990’s, said it best when he called the NAACP, the national party of ignorant people. It’s clear the (naacp) thinks Americans are to ignorant to figure out their communist agenda? OK I digress, on that point, maybe they’re half right.

  • 12grace

    Senator Scott is a good man that does not yield to leftist nosecone. The NAACP is one of the biggest offenders of racism.

    Wow, what a calm, level-headed, mature man talking about the American Dream. I hope Senator Scott doesn’t get distracted by all the garbage in DC, especially the NAACP.

  • Conservator1

    To progressive Democrats, like those who run the NAACP, they have a phrase used to describe black conservatives like Senator Tim Scott; Uncle Tom albeit they don’t state it public. The NAACP doesn’t represent African Americans. They use them, keep them dependent on their leftist masters while destroying their families, keep them living in the ghettos with high unemployment, bad schools and a very high death rate of young blacks. That’s today’s NAACP.

  • Sober_Thinking

    Been Jealous long Mr. Jealous? He’s simply upset because strong, intelligent, individual black people are leaving them and embracing conservative values.

    The NAACP is irrelevent and absolutely worthless. If you don’t get on their plantation, then you are “racist” and whatever other juvenile label they can place on you. The NAACP is racist and worthless. They are a big part of the problem.

    Well said Tim Scott.

    • marketcomp

      Besides, Sober_Thinking would you think that having unemployment at 14% among Black Americans a civil right or a civil wrong? What Barack Obama has done to the Black community is a kin to economic sabatoge but the useful idiots like Jealous applaud that. Sen. Scott was a business owner and he most definitely understands employment and private industry better than people like Jealous and Obama who have never worked in private industry. Besides I love how Seator Scott just completely ignores Jealous stupid premise and refuses to get in the gutter with these people.

      • Sober_Thinking

        Agreed. Scott is rising above it all… so pleased. 🙂

      • Orangeone

        Correct! And black teen unemployment at 39.3%. Funny how on another thread Joe Biden is promising sweeping gun control in January 2013 because black teens have guns. Well Joe, how are they getting them underage and while unemployed?

        • marketcomp

          So right, Orangeone! And those stupid gun control laws will not do anything to stop black teenagers from getting guns who should be the target.

    Massive education campaigns for a host of things: sexual abstinence (outside of marriage), ideals of Promise Keepers (remember The Thousand Man March? what happened to that?), after-school mentoring, volunteerism, corporations helping small business, married couples helping single parents, growth and support of philanthropic organizations…

    Perhaps a TV network all about corporate sponsors of charity to show what is being done, spawning interest in new efforts…

    This as I understand was how the 19th-century wealthiest brought this country to greatness–using their own money to develop industries, and as they accumulated wealth, in turn investing dramatically in social betterment, with results of a truly greater society.

    Am I wrong?

    The NAACP is the most racist organization in the world.
    They should all be prosecuted for hate crimes and sent to Gulags.

    I really like this guy. I hope my african americans neighbors like him as well.

  • GO go go Senator Scott!~! We are ALL proud of you and have your back. Thank you for stepping into the fray.

  • TimeForAnarchy

    Isn’t Ben Jealous half-white, like his Lord & Savior King Barry the Petulant?

  • Immigrant_from_Socialism7

    ONLY the SOCIALISTS attack American success and maintaining the American ideal.
    They can only succeed by compartmentalization of Americans into groups they can attack and turn to anti America.
    Soviets played one group against another,Nazis too.
    Just watch and translate old Soviet,Nazi propaganda…you will see the same signs and hear the same rhetoric….that the Socialists and the Premier use…”forewarned is forearmed.”

  • You ain’t black until you’re racist blacks approve your blackness. Indeed, ridiculous.

    • TimeForAnarchy

      Which begs the question: How “black” is black enough?

      Apparently, Herman Cain wasn’t black enough. Or Thomas Sowell. Or Walter Williams. Or Allan West………

    F*ck! The NAACP.

  • puma_for_life

    I love this guy. When he was running for Congress I saw a video made by his minister and church and I was so impressed by his spirituality. This is a solid man.

  • PicklePlants

    Nice guy – I have hope

  • repubboy

    Senator tim Scott.. very classy and very articulate gentleman, He will be an asset and a fine example of what can happen to those people who work hard and get the proper education and have the right attitude for success. !!!
    Ben Jealous = Jerk enough said !
    NAACP= antiquated organization for the Halting of Advancement for colored people.. what a waste of time and energy !

    Are they ashamed that an African American Senator is a conservative. Keep telling them Sen. Scott, you will remain a conservative. They need to be afraid of you, together with Obama. We haven’t heard his opinion yet and probably won’t. You are a brave man, and please keep your conservatism alive. We need more African Americans like you and Herman Cain as our representatives. Too bad Allen West was defeated, he is great as well.

  • DebbyX

    Now there’s a potential great Senator whom the Left will simply loath on sight!

    • 08hayabusa

      Just like Allen West.

      If you’re not lockstep or lockspeak with the Left’s agenda then you are the declared enemy, and you will be Palinized.

  • Bryan Smith

    Obama does not believe in civil rights. He did nothing for civil rights in his first term. His tactics has been to divide the country on racial lines.

  • We’re talking about the “National Association for the Advancement of Demokkkrat Colored People”. The NAADCP. The word that’s irrelevant is “Colored”. This racist group is all about demokkkrats.


    Tim, damn softball questions for u. So far i like you. Keep up the good work.
