Another Black Hypocrisy under Attack!

Following up on the phony draft fraud, the Bush administration is finally attacking the National Association for the Advancement of Liberal Colored People tax-exempt status. I agree whole-heartedly with this policy. Here is the story.

BAW: Commentary: IRS investigation of NAACP is outrageous

The chairman didn’t mention Bush by name until deep into his
7,000-plus-word speech, when he noted that GWB had opposed affirmative action,
appointed a federal judge with a record of hostility toward civil rights, and
rejected the NAACP’s invitation to speak at that very convention. Altogether, 303 words were devoted to Bush and his administration per se. Bond’s only mention of John Kerry was to state that the Democratic nominee had accepted his invitation to address the convention.

This is non-partisan??? Give me a break. If the NAALCP wants to be a wing of the Dems, let them pay for it themselves.

Or what about the National Urban League? Bush did accept an invitation to speak at its annual conference. According to IRS Form 4564, “a candidate can be invited to speak at an organization function in his or her individual (non-candidate) capacity if the organization takes steps to ensure that: (1) the candidate speaks only in a non-candidate capacity…(2) neither the candidate nor any representative of the organization makes any mention of the fact that the individual is a candidate for public office or of the election in which he or she is running, and (3) no campaign activity occurs in connection with the candidate’s attendance.”

What do you do when you get your hand caught in the cookie jar? Blame it on someone else. The Urban League had both candidates to speak at their conference. It was one of Bush's best speeches. I wish that every Black voter could view it before casting their vote today. Anyway, I hope the Bush administration and the GOP continue to attack these civil right charlatans. Maybe the Black churches who have Democrats speak from the pulpits will be next......Nah, too good to be true
