Why Does The NC NAACP Hate Monuments and History? #BlueprintNC #NCGA

Given the statement below, I do not believe that anyone at the NC NAACP, or anyone from their ‘Forward Together Moral Movement’  has actually really read SB 22 – Historic Artifact Management and Patriotism Act.

If they had, they they’d know this protects the flag, historical artifacts, ALL places of remembrance and puts into place a process for future preservation. It was also filed in February, well before the Charleston shooting and the subsequent mass outrage over the Confederate Flag.

The very last paragraph in the statement below…wow.  Who do they think they’re kidding? This is completely about partisan politics, has zero to do with ‘white supremacy’ and is yet another obvious example of the BlueprintNC attack strategy: Cripple, Eviscerate, Pressure, Slam.

NC NAACP and Forward Together Moral Movement Outline Reasons for Holding “Protect the People” Moral Monday

RALEIGH, NC – At 5 p.m. on Monday, July 27, the NC NAACP and Forward Together Moral Movement will hold a “Protect the People” Moral Monday at the North Carolina Capitol.

In light of the Governor and General Assembly’s recent passage of the “Historic Artifact Management and Patriotism Act” and their refusal to ban license plates bearing the Confederate flag, the NC NAACP and Forward Together Moral Movement are holding a “Protect the People” Moral Monday because:

The Governor and legislature’s priorities concern not only the NAACP. They concern the entire Forward Together Moral Movement, made up of justice-loving North Carolinians of all races, creeds, classes, citizenship statuses, political affiliations, genders, and sexualities.

The recent passage of this law is not just about monuments. It underscores the cynical posturing of protecting monuments that represent a racist legacy before protecting voting rights, healthcare, public education, criminal justice reform, living wages, women’s rights, the environment, and all citizens of this state.

There must be real truth-telling about the legacy of the Confederacy. These monuments need markers explaining when and why they were erected and what the Confederacy stood for.

The Governor and legislature are stirring, with this issue and others, race-baiting politics similar to Jesse Helms’ politics of the 20th century.

The Governor and legislature passed this law approximately one month after the Charleston massacre, knowing the kinds of sentiments it would elicit among people who hold white supremacist views.

This is not about partisan politics, but about the pain of old wounds that have still not been healed and the government at the highest levels explicitly and implicitly giving license to honor the symbols and attitudes of white supremacy.

WHO: NC NAACP and Forward Together Moral Movement

WHAT: “Protect the People” Moral Monday

WHEN: 5 p.m. on Monday, July 27, 2015

    If the GOP wanted to DESTROY the Democrat party all they need to do is to show everyone the facts and their history!
    I pray the GOP will make a push to educate everyone on the facts about the Democrat party and how they started they started the KKK!
    Take time to research KCarl Smith and his “The Frederick Douglass Republican Movement – Turning Confrontation Into Conference!”
    Here is a quote from his work:
    Following the Civil War, Frederick Douglass received Presidential appointments from Republican Presidents Ulysses Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes, and James A. Garfield.
    Democratic President Grover Cleveland removed Frederick Douglas from office but Republican President Benjamin Harrison reappointed him.”
    In the 19th century, Democrats prevented Black Americans from going to public school.
    In the 108th Congress, when Republicans proposed a permanent extension of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, it was opposed by the Congressional Black Caucus (composed only of Democrats).
    African Americans originally came to America unwillingly, having been stolen and sold by MUSLIM slave-catchers in Africa to Dutch traders journeying to America in 1619. In 1866 Democrats formed the Ku Klux Klan to pave the way for Democrats to regain control in the elections.
    George Wallace was a Democrat.
    Bull Connor was a Democrat.
    In the 19th century, Democrats prevented Black Americans from going to public school.
    In the 20th and 21st century Democrats prevented Black Americans trapped in failing schools from choosing a better school. In fact Democrats voted against the bill by 99%.
    Jim Crow laws, poll taxes, grandfather clauses, Literacy tests, white only primaries, and physical violence all came from the Democratic Party.
