NAACP, Left-Leaning Media Groups Form Tea Party Tracking Site



Published September 02, 2010 | FoxNews.com

A new website sponsored by the NAACP and left-leaning media operations is seeking videographers and bloggers who will search out "racism" and "extremism" among Tea Partiers.

Teapartytracker.org will feature tweets, interviews with people at rallies, blog entries and a picture of a t-shirt they say someone spotted at a rally that reads "Blacks own slaves in Mauitania, Sudan, Niger & Haiti."

The site, sponsored by the NAACP, Think Progress, New Left Media and Media Matters for America, will monitor "racism and other forms of extremism within the Tea Party movement. We call on the Tea Party to repudiate extremists among their ranks and join in civil dialogue with all Americans."

The NAACP and other groups have accused the Tea Party of several instances of racism, including spitting on a black congressman, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo., on Capitol Hill as he went to vote for the health care bill.

Whether the spitting incident, which was caught on tape, was intentional remains subject to debate. Nonetheless, the narrative has remained a continuing theme of Tea Party critics.

The site's logo is also an old aphorism, apparently meant to suggest that monitoring the Tea Party will prevent the group from becoming more effective. "A watched teapot never boils," it reads.

The site's success will likely be measured in the "gotcha" moments it can accumulate that aim to embarrass or undermine the Tea Party movement. The submissions will most often come from citizen journalists, who have grown in form and fashion since Sen. George Allen of Virginia was ousted from his Senate seat in 1996 after his "macaca" moment.

At that time, a videographer sent by his opponent's campaign caught Allen using what critics later explained was an obscure racial slur. Allen's campaign sank afterward, and his Democratic opponent, Jim Webb, won the seat.

The fear of gotcha moments most recently forced Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., to try to close a Tea Party meeting to media in order to allow people to speak freely. But Tea Partiers who attended the 90-minute event Wednesday in North Charleston City Hall told the Charleston Press and Courier that they were fine with media coverage.

"This stuff does happen, and it's stupid," Kelly McBride, a senior faculty member with the Poynter Institute in Florida, reportedly said. "Who isn't a reporter these days?"

What this basically means is that when it comes to actual policies and issues? They've got nothing. All they can hope to do is paint them as racists and hope that hurts them. They can't exactly say 'These people want to stop the government from racking up more debt and choking the private sector to death! We say they're wrong!'

Soros founded.

Goal one: racial tension (few can't control the many unless the many control one another) Communism 101
Goal two: to deligitmize the tea party

Media is doing both by screaming the NAACP part.

...look at where the money comes from - Media Matters = George Soros.

Soros is the globalist who often calls for the formation of global government or a "new world order."

Gee, you think the little socialist bitches are scared? Along with the HuffPo's $100,000 reward for the best Glenn Beck dirty laundry.

In the end, you see - they have organizational powers as evidenced by Øbama becoming President, not over Juan McCain ––no, no, no–– over the vaunted Clinton Machine. That was the real fight. However, they have proven in less than two years, it was all organization sans any true lasting passion from their voter base. It was Astro-turf meets socialist media propagandists. Plus, having Obama run against the New York Times endorsed Republican didn't hurt.

The Tea Party / Conservative Movement might not be as well organized (at this time), but WE HAVE PASSION AND LOVE FOR COUNTRY, AND WE WILL NOT SIT BY AND WATCH SOCIALISM REPLACE WHAT GOD AND THE FOUNDERS GAVE US.

Had it even occured, it would have been captured on camera. That event was crawling with cameras!


ETA: Did anybody ever claim Breitbart's offer of 100k for video evidence of the supposed incindent? No. All bullshit.

Nope, of course not.

It never happened.

And if they do catch something, I wonder how much will be staged by them?

It's a shame that the NAAPC is now reduced to this. Perhaps they were relevent at one time.

Meh, these lines were drawn long ago.

The race card has been overplayed for so long, you can see it long before that dogeared, smudged up, dirty card even comes out of the dealers hand. What a bunch of losers.

Well, that would be just dandy - if the name of the group they were watching was the "Teapot Party"...

Relevant? To whom?

But I doubt it. By nature, they have always been a racist organization and the truth is they have contributed little to blacks in general, mostly just stirred shit up all the time.

Any organization dedicated to the advancement of one race is by definition racist.

This. Whatever hate they can't find they generate themselves. They benefit from keeping other blacks poor, uneducated, away from opportunities and locked into the perpetual welfare state. That way they can blame the Tea Party, "the Man", whitey, whoever for being racists who are keeping minorities down and keep people sending them money to fight their generated boogeymen.

Just read on drudge that this site is funded by George Soros and he is the primary force behind it.

Now it all makes sense. On the flip side apparently he is worried "his boys" are on the way out.

you can read about it here

ETA that linked to Infowars...well guess that gives it a 50/50 chance of being true.

They will lash out like a wounded animal at anyone who threatens what they see as their monopoly on protest.

This.


But there is no such thing as a hate crime against whites...... you see we deserve it.


Doesn't matter if your family wasn't part of it, doesn't matter if you weren't even alive then. Your white and you suck!
