Not on the evening news!

Thanks Lee:

The annual MLK observance at the state house in Columbia SC had an interesting twist this year. The event is held on the north side steps of the statehouse. Prominent at that location is a large bronze statue of George Washington.

This year, the NAACP constructed a “box” to conceal the father of our country from view so that participants would not be ‘offended’ by his presence.

This rally was sponsored by the NAACP and they said that they covered the statue because they “didn’t want to offend anyone”. Really? George Washington is the father of this nation. How is he offensive to anyone?

Can you imagine what would happen if we covered the statue of Dr. Martin L. King on President’s Day? Or is only the statue of a ‘white guy’ offensive?

Of course, this display of anti-Americanism wasn’t covered at all by the national media and the local paper in Columbia only ran a short piece on it.

I think the word needs to get out to the general public that this is what the NAACP is all about…militant and (most definitely) racist.
