WASHINGTON— Black leaders and former members of the National Association of the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) blasted the NAACP on the 45th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King, claiming the organization “no longer stands for civil rights” and “kills black babies”.

“We are sick and tired of the NAACP coming into our communities and actually ‘pimping’,” Rev. Edward Pinkney, President of the Black Autonomy Network Community Organization (BANCO), former President of the Benton Harbor chapter of the NAACP and organizer or the demonstration, told Towhnall.

The demonstrators were outraged by the NAACP’s support of Planned Parenthood and the organization’s sponsorship of corporations that distribute the “deadly drug” Depo-Provera.

“Fifty percent of the African American babies that are being born today are aborted—we’re concerned about that—yet the NAACP supports Planned Parenthood,” Pinkney said, “so it’s time that we tell the NAACP no more.”

The use of Depo-Provera, an injectable contraceptive causes “causes osteoporosis, heart attacks, stroke, blood clots, cervical cancer, breast cancer, miscarriages, balding, strips the inner lining of a woman’s womb, and makes her more susceptible for feminine illnesses,” Dr. Randy Short, a representative of the Dignity of Women’s Health Coalition and a board member for the International Human Rights Association for American Minorities, explained. “One of the NAACP’s executive national board members, Karen Boykin Towns, is responsible for the global marketing of the drug.”

“African American women in this country use almost 90 percent of Depo-Provera and represent the majority of the women contracting HIV AIDS, wherever you have a large amount of HIV AIDS you have a large number of women using Depo-Provera,” he said.

Dr. Short also condemned Pfizer, a corporation which sponsors the NAACP, as “one of the most corrupt, wicked, dirty organizations that has ever existed since humanity began” for targeting Depo-Provera towards black women. The Department of Justice fined Pfizer in 2009 with a two billion dollar plus fine for misbranding pharmaceutical medications.

“This is a group that says that they are about fairness and justice and equality and yet they’d allow a drug like this that is killing people to be used and to be targeted towards black folks,” he said, “and they get a little money on the side to look the other way.”

The protesters slammed the NAACP for being a 501-C3 non-profit organization, yet an “arm of the Democratic Party.”

“They’re the arm, the leg—they’re the genitalia of the Democratic Party—this has been going on for a long time,” Dr. Short said. “They shouldn’t have tax exempt status, if they want to be DNC light or the black DNC, be black DNC and stop saying you represent me. They don’t.”

“The NAACP has violated its own charter to take partisan sides, they do anything to continue to get the walking around money that comes during the elections—they care nothing about the people,” Short added. “They are running around pushing Democratic Party principles while we are dying. They basically say to us, screw you but when we want you to vote, vote all by color as a block for people who ignore you.”

“The Democratic Party must be held accountable as well and the NAACP is in bed with them,” Dr. James Tucker, a disabled veteran who claims he was “expelled from the NAACP for standing up for the people” told Townhall.

“As a result of being a democrat I have experienced racism from the Democratic Party,” he said. “They want African Americans to vote for them but they don’t want us to be a voice within the party. They don’t support issues of civil rights protection, those are the facts.”

“When I was the President of the Benton Harbor chapter of the NAACP they asked me to make sure that I tell everybody to go out and support the Democratic Party,” Rev. Pinkney explained. “When I told them that I could not do that, we are a 501-C3 non-profit organization—it’s illegal—they decided to start harassing me, but they ran into the right person.”

Townhall asked the protestors how the felt about the NAACP’s numerous accusations of the Tea Party, GOP and Republicans being “racist.”

“There is nobody more racist than the NAACP,” Rev. Pinkney replied, “As a matter of fact I feel like the NAACP is the new KKK.”

“They are the ones that are responsible for racism, they are being pushed to keep the country divided. I think that is their job—that’s why they are paid government dollars,” he said, “to keep up the animosity between races.”

“The NAACP need to do their homework, “replied Dr. Tucker. “The NAACP has a history of destroying, assassinating people’s characters. They commit legal lynching against the strongest men and women who are standing up for the rights of African Americans across this country.”

“They’re what we call black self-hatred racists,” said Dr. Short. “You have heard of rednecks—we’ll we’ve got black necks. They don’t care anything about poor or working class African Americans and they never have, so how dare they say that the Tea Party is any worse.”

“I see more people in jail, I see more people homeless, there are higher rates of unemployment,” Dr. Short continued. “They are the most war mongering fake Negroes that you’ll ever see.”

A number of the demonstrators told Townhall that they are “targeted individuals” that experience “mind control” for being “whistleblowers” and speaking out against the injustices of the NAACP and government. Two of the “targeted individuals” were willing to speak to us about their conflicts on camera.

“I have been after the NAACP for a very long time because of what they do to the poor—they have completely brought our race down,” a former member of the NAACP said, “and because of it I have become a ‘targeted individual’.

“You should see my skin, my hair, my eyes sight, they burn me, they took my teeth out—my throat, my hair, my eyesight, and I have burns all over my body. I feel this happened to me ever since I protested them in 2003,” the women said. “Nobody is listening, and I feel like they are going to kill me.”

“There are many more people and some of us know what’s happening to us, and some of us don’t,” the women said.

Another woman who formerly worked with the NAACP claimed to have been “targeted” since June 2009 after running a girls group called ‘Girl Talk: HIV AIDS Prevention.’

“I have received electronic rape, it’s a silent rape,” she said, “this technology is no good and a lot of people are committing suicide because it’s very hard to cope with.”

She said the NAACP were the first people she called for help because she had been a member for years but organization ignored her and subsequently would not renew her NAACP membership. A book written by Dr. John Hall, ‘A new Breed of Satellite Terrorism in America’ and the support group, Freedom from Covert Harassment and Surveillance substantiated her suspicion of being under “mind control”.

“Martin Luther King he died, he took a bullet for the people. He separated himself from the NAACP because he knew they were a group of sell outs, even in his days,” Pinkney said. “We will continue to boycott and picket the NAACP at every function that they have. Our goal is to get 100,000 people to burn their membership.”

“They’ve gotten a pass just because of their skin color,” Dr. Short said, “We have a black president now, is that supposed to signal a change? It’s a change for me, I don’t just look at what you look like, what do you do? I don’t care what color someone is, if you are evil, you’re evil.”

The demonstrators also protested the NAACP headquarters in Baltimore Maryland Thursday.
