Public Service Denouncement

On CBS' Face the Nation, NAACP President Ben Jealous faced off against David Webb of the National Tea Party Federation. Webb said Mark Williams, the former chairman and spokesman of Tea Party Express who came under fire last week for writing a satirical letter in which he called slavery a "great gig," and his group had been expelled from the National Tea Party Federation. Webb blasted the NAACP's "selective condemnation of racism," which he attributed to "fringe elements" within the tea party, and called on Jealous to denounce members of the New Black Panther Party for saying they want to "kill cracker babies."

"We absolutely denounce the New Black Panther Party," Jealous said, adding that the NBPP is a very small organization. "But they aren't in our group. These folks are in your groups."

Webb and Jealous agreed to make joint appearances to discuss race relations and other issues.

Vice President Joe Biden said on ABC's "This Week" that the tea party "is not a racist organization," but added that "the truth is that at least elements that were involved in some of the Tea Party folks expressed racist views."

------- Let the denunciations begin.

Williams "satirical letter" from NAACP president to Abe Lincoln:
Dear Mr. Lincoln:
We Coloreds have taken a vote and decided that we don’t cotton to that whole emancipation thing. Freedom means having to work for real, think for ourselves, and take consequences along with the rewards. That is just far too much to ask of us Colored People and we demand that it stop!

In fact we held a big meeting and took a vote in Kansas City this week. We voted to condemn a political revival of that old abolitionist spirit called the ‘tea party movement’.

The tea party position to “end the bailouts” for example is just silly. Bailouts are just big money welfare and isn’t that what we want all Coloreds to strive for? What kind of racist would want to end big money welfare? What they need to do is start handing the bail outs directly to us coloreds! Of course, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is the only responsible party that should be granted the right to disperse the funds.

And the ridiculous idea of “reduce[ing] the size and intrusiveness of government.” What kind of massa would ever not want to control my life? As Coloreds we must have somebody care for us otherwise we would be on our own, have to think for ourselves and make decisions!

The racist tea parties also demand that the government “stop the out of control spending.” Again, they directly target coloreds. That means we Coloreds would have to compete for jobs like everybody else and that is just not right.

Perhaps the most racist point of all in the tea parties is their demand that government “stop raising our taxes.” That is outrageous! How will we coloreds ever get a wide screen TV in every room if non-coloreds get to keep what they earn? Totally racist! The tea party expects coloreds to be productive members of society?

Mr. Lincoln, you were the greatest racist ever. We had a great gig. Three squares, room and board, all our decisions made by the massa in the house. Please repeal the 13th and 14th Amendments and let us get back to where we belong.

Precious Ben Jealous, Tom’s Nephew NAACP Head Colored Person

--- Among many offenses, Williams "satirical letter" stereotypes blacks as a group using government assistance money to put "a wide screen TV in every room". That taxation and spending is of benefit only to black folks. Obviously, Williams has not noticed all the white folks on welfare with widescreens, new Dodge Ram trucks, doublewides, and deer rifles.

Williams has been booted from the Tea Party party for his clearly offensive parody letter, which he has removed from his blog. It's a shame he didn't have one black friend to run this letter by before posting for all the world to read.

What a dufus, I'd say he's dumber than Dubya. He doesn't know social decay and political corruption is colorblind. I don't know anymore whether to pity people this ignorant or just say piss on 'em. Give him his 15 minutes.
