NAACP on Townhall

Bruce Bialosky - Mon Nov 5

Every American who isn’t a zealous adherent of Barack Obama has a favorite reason why this President is a failure; God knows, there are certainly enough reasons to choose from. But there is one shortcoming that is, in the long run, the most significant – and regrettably so, because Obama is uniquely qualified, and could have vastly improved America as a whole, had he addressed the issue. It is to have confronted the destruction of the Black family that has been the hallmark of the Black underclass for the last 40 years. Yet as he approaches the end of his Presidency, he has done virtually nothing. ... more

No one would believe it, but a combined effort by tea party activists and the NAACP helped defeat a proposed 1 percent sales tax for transportation on the 10 main counties that make up some 6 million people living in the Atlanta metropolitan area. And consider this: These two "Davids" had nothing but some printed signs and rallies to get out their message. ... more

Mike Adams - Fri Jul 20

Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. Although I believe your organization is no longer necessary and is on the balance harmful to race relations in America, I am nonetheless honored to speak to you tonight. I am honored to speak to you because I recall the days when the NAACP was committed to racial equality. ... more

Race has become the third rail of American politics. Touch it, and you die. It's the rail some of our angriest Democrats want to ride Mitt Romney and the Republicans out of town on. The word "racist" is the new shorthand for "evil," replacing Hitler as the all-purpose evil those with stunted imaginations accuse their opponents and enemies of. Not so long ago, racism was a crime so heinous that merely to be accused of it was all the proof needed for conviction. ... more

Cal Thomas - Tue Jul 17

Mitt Romney's speech to the NAACP convention in Houston was -- according to one's political perspective -- a "calculated move on his part to get booed..." to help his white base (Rep. Nancy Pelosi), or a presentation to "independent thinking adult citizens" whom he treated as equals (Rush Limbaugh). ... more

Republican presidential candidates do not go to NAACP conventions to win votes. Any more than Christians went to the Coliseum to convert the lions. ... more

Matt Barber - Mon Jul 16

As his re-election hopes dim, the mainstream “progressive” media continue to run interference for Barack Obama. It’s predictable. They no longer even try to hide it. They persist in slobbering on their over-hyped, under-capable would-be savior as his campaign collapses around them. The sycophancy is embarrassing and the desperation palpable. ... more

Harry R. Jackson, Jr. - Mon Jul 16

July 12, 2012 marked the end of the NAACP’s annual meeting and 103 years of faithful service to the black community. Members and their families gathered from around the world. Their annual pilgrimage celebrates the work of WEB Dubois, Medgar Evers, and thousands of patriots who believed in the American dream. ... more

Barack Obama was a no-show at the recent 103rd NAACP conference, but, clearly, he is being given a pass by the NAACP leadership. Checking the president's schedule, apparently there was nothing so pressing that he should have been unable to attend the meeting in Texas, but instead, he relegated responsibilities of the annual NAACP meeting to the vice president. ... more

Steve Chapman - Sun Jul 15

It may have been a bit surprising when the NAACP held its national convention and Mitt Romney showed up. Romney, as comedian Reggie Brown put it, is "what people who hate white people think of when they think of white people." He's likely to do about as well among black voters as he is among Wiccans. ... more

Mona Charen - Fri Jul 13

Mitt Romney delivered one of the best speeches of the year at the NAACP meeting in Houston. It made me proud to watch him. ... more

Donald Lambro - Fri Jul 13

Mitt Romney delivered a gutsy speech to the NAACP convention on Wednesday, reminding African-Americans of what most of them knew or should have known: President Obama hasn't made their lives better. ... more

Demetrius Minor - Thu Jul 12

On Monday, Benjamin Jealous, president of the NAACP, decided to confront the issue of Voter ID. Unfortunately, he embraced the left’s absurd ideology that it is voter suppression and an assault on the rights of minorities. ... more

Crystal Wright - Thu Jul 12

Lost in all the chatter about Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney speaking to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) was that Romney demonstrated a desire to earn the black vote while President Obama could care less about it. ... more

Jackie Gingrich Cushman - Thu Jul 12

What are Americans interested in? According to a Gallup poll released on June 14, it's the economy, in a variety of forms. The poll found that "68 percent of Americans mention some aspect of the economy when asked about the most important problem facing the country today, with the economy in general (31 percent) and unemployment (25 percent) most often mentioned as specific concerns." (Poll of 1,004 adults, conducted June 7-10, with a sampling error of plus-or-minus 4 points.) ... more

Debra J. Saunders - Thu Jul 12

NAACP members booed Mitt Romney when he spoke at the group's annual convention in Houston on Wednesday. The audience heckled the former Massachusetts governor three times, once after he promised to repeal Obamacare if elected. It's also true that the audience cheered Romney repeatedly, if not wildly. ... more

Houston, TX - Thu Jul 12

The crowd at Romney's NAACP speech applauded his vow to defend traditional marriage. ... more
