"I believe in a Spinoza's God who reveals himself in the harmony of all that exists, but not in a God who concerns himself with the fate and actions of human beings."
--Albert Einstein, 1929
And of COURSE I realize the NAACP comments regarding the Tea Party were bull****. Its viable to call the NAACP out and let the Tea Party position stand on its own merits. Arguing against a steaming pile of **** with your own version of steaming **** makes you just as dirty, dontcha think?

Controversies about the word "niggardly" - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"I bet that even as I write, some adolescent boys, in the stairwell of some high school somewhere in America, are accusing each other of being niggardly, and sniggering at their own outrageous wit. I bet ... Wait a minute. 'Sniggering'? Oh, my God...."--John Derbyshire

Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
I find it hard to believe that anyone still takes this clown seriously.
What would you say if Daily kos released a selectively edited clip of a conservative like this without the full context? I'm betting you're first reaction wouldn't be to raise a pitchfork up to the conservative as you are doing to this lady.
Every conservative in this thread that thinks that this video proves that the NAACP is a racist organization needs to lay off the kool aid and think for themselves.
For example, I'd have nothing but love for a Westboro Baptist Church Member or a KKK member who had something happened that changed their view and renounced their old viewpoints. Telling the story of how they changed their views, has no bearing on my opinion of them as they are now, and their are certain exceptions such as if the KKK member lynched a black man, but even then, he should stand trial for what he did, but more power to him for renouncing his views anyway.
Now that might be general rambling. But let he who is without sin cast the first stone in this case.I actually had a chance to write a character for a show I did. And my character was a 1920's KKK white Farmer. Who hated blacks with a passion, and had once in a mob mentality participated in a lynching. But one day, his daughter was swimming in the river near the border of the farm, and she got swept up in the current, my character could not swim, but one of his black farmhands could, and jumped in to save his daughter. From that day forth he changed his mind completely but society at that point didn't allow him to stop going to Klan Meetings or to openly admit that blacks were equal. - Jetboogieman
