    NAACP Releases Statement On 2014 Elections, But No Mention Of Mia Love Or Tim Scott

    NAACP Releases Statement On 2014 Elections, But No Mention Of Mia Love Or Tim Scott's Historic Wins - Matt Vespa

    Instead they focused on the bogus issue of voter ID preventing people of color to vote.

    Dip****z.

    It is rather sad to see what a pathetic organization the NAACP is.

    I find it rather racist to think black people are somehow less capable of obtaining ID than any other race.

    The NAACP is a non-partisan organization that only, just by chance mind you, supports Democrat candidates and Democrat initiatives.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    The NAACP, like NOW, is primmarily a "victim's" organization and one cannot be a victim of electoral success. Like we see with other race hustling, poverty pimps (e.g. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson) they are not into celebrating success since they gain nothing from pointing out that success through personal effort is not a race (or gender) based issue. The "victim" angle is that race (or gender) is some nearly insurmountable barrier that requires (their?) outside assistance to overcome.

    I think Mia Love says it best when she is CONSTANTLY asked about race/gender and their importance to her most recent accompishment:

    Well, first of all, I think what we need to mention here is this has nothing do with race. Understand that Utahans have made a statement that they're not interested in dividing Americans based on race or gender, that they want to make sure that they are electing people who are honest and who are -- who have integrity, who could be able to go out and actually make sure that we represent the values that they hold dear.

    And that's really what made history here. It's that race, gender, had nothing to do with it. Principles had everything to do with it, and Utah values had everything to do with it. And so that's the history that we made here.

    Re: Patthetic NAACP fails to mention historic wins by Tim Scott and Mia Love.

    Related example:

    Sen. Scott vs. MSNBC's Thomas Roberts: I Got An "F" From NAACP Because I Believe Liberal Policies Failed - video in link

    THOMAS ROBERTS, MSNBC: Sir, you said you that are concerned. This is Thomas Roberts, by the way. You said you are concerned about kids that are growing up in the wrong zip code and like yourself that had a tough start on the way out. But if we look at agencies that are following some of your voting records, they have concern and the NAACP has given you an "F" on their annual scorecard. They also say you voted against the ACA. You voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress. You oppose the Congressional Black Caucus' budget. Delayed funding on a settlement between the U.S. and black farmers who say that they were prejudiced against because of their race. So how do you respond to that, if your true concern is about lower income families and kids?

    SEN. TIM SCOTT (R-SC): Well, let's just ask ourselves as we look back over history when the Congress was controlled by the Democrats for 40 consecutive years. If we look at the result of that control what has happened in black America. We saw greater poverty. If we take the statistics from 1970s to the 21st century, what we see very clearly is that poverty has gone from 11% to 15%. These are classic examples that the policies of the left have not worked.

    I will tell you, if i have an "F" on the NAACP scorecard, it's because I believe that progress has to be made and the government is not the answer for progress. I was a kid growing up in poverty. I had a mentor who was a Chick-Fil-A operator who taught me that the brilliance of the American economy happens through business ownership and entrepreneurial spirit. So whether you own the business or not, success is possible if you, a, have a good education, b, have a strong work ethic. For the average person who can work, these two key components come together and form a foundation. That is the way that you eradicate poverty.

    All the social programs that we've had -- we've had the largest government we've ever had in the history of the country. We have more nonprofit organizations working on the same issue and yet we have a higher percentage of people living in poverty. The key it seems like is individual freedom and economic opportunity, fusing those together in an agenda that focuses on education seems to lead forward. This is clearly the case in D.C. where the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship has produced higher percentage of kids going to college. It's produced 91% of the kids graduating from high school versus 56% for those who are simply in everyday schools in D.C. I want that to be the case for either child.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    I know. I was commenting on the OP's misspelling of "Pathetic" in the title. Guess I should have quoted him directly.

    Didn't the NAACP support Obama? Didn't he have electoral success?
