Black Conservatives See No Controversy At Rally

WASHINGTON - With the NAACP's leadership throwing itself in with far-left groups in an apparent effort to paint the tea party movement as radical and potentially racist, black conservatives with the Project 21 leadership network who attended the September 12 "March on D.C." report that nothing occurred yesterday that would interest these would-be watchdogs.

"This tea party was no different from any of the others. It was like others, but not the way the left is going to want to say," said Project 21 member Bob Parks. "I encountered a lot of the usual nice people. I was called names such as 'hero' and 'patriot' even though I think that a bit over-the-top. I was forced by this mob to shake hands and endure the hugs of well-wishers. But this obviously isn't what tea party critics are going to say."

Parks satirically interviewed minorities in the crowd at the Freedomworks-organized "March on D.C." at the U.S. Capitol -- poking fun at claims that "people of color" don't attend tea party rallies. This video can be viewed below.


 
Project 21 members were featured speakers at the three main tea party rallies held nationwide on September 12 -- in Washington, D.C., St. Louis, Missouri and Sacramento, California. The speech by Project 21 fellow Deneen Borelli, who spoke at the D.C. event, can be viewed below.

 
"Freedom-loving Americans, for the second time in a month, have brought their cause of liberty to Washington, D.C.," said Borelli. "This most-recent rally was about Obama's failed policies such as cap-and-trade and Obamacare. It was a fantastic experience, and I was honored to be a speaker for the second year in row."

The NAACP recently joined with the far-left groups Think Progress, Media Matters and New Left Media to set up a web site to allegedly expose radical elements in the tea party movement. The NAACP also passed an unreleased resolution at their annual convention that reportedly condemns racism in the tea party movement and calls on tea party leaders to repudiate unspecified acts of intolerance.

Project 21, a leading voice of black conservatives since 1992, is sponsored by the National Center for Public Policy Research
