NAACP stands for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, but in actuality it only promotes the advancement of African-Americans who agree with their leftist agenda. On Sunday night the Rev. William Barber II, president of the N.C. NAACP attacked fellow N.C. African-American, Senator Tim Scott as a dummy because Scott’s politics were different than the slandering Rev.
Issues such as voting, health care, environment and education “are moral issues, faith issues,” Barber said in a pre-Martin Luther King Jr. Day speech to Columbia and S.C. NAACP members and guests.
“Any profession of faith that doesn’t promote justice and standing against wrong is a form of heresy,” said Barber, adding that pastors who obsess about topics like prayer, homosexuality and abortion while neglecting justice, poverty, fair play and equality issues “are just running their mouths.”
Perhaps, but I would suggest that Any profession of faith which includes the slandering of others is a bigger heresy.
He also singled out U.S. Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., the conservative black Republican appointed by Gov. Nikki Haley.
“A ventriloquist can always find a good dummy,” Barber said. He said “the extreme right wing down here (in South Carolina) finds a black guy to be senator and claims he’s the first black senator since Reconstruction and then he goes to Washington, D.C., and articulates the agenda of the Tea Party.”
Instead of showing pride in the fact that Scott is a Senator this faux-Reverend trashes him. Obviously Barber knows nothing of the Reverent Martin Luther King Jr.
In responding Senator Scott displayed the class missing from Rev. Barber:
“To reflect seriously on the comments a person, a pastor, that is filled with baseless and meaningless rhetoric would be to do a disservice to the very people who have sacrificed so much and paved a way,” Scott told The Daily Caller in an emailed statement. “Instead, I will honor the memory of Dr. King by being proactive in holding the door for others and serving my fellow man. And Rev. Barber will remind me and others of what not to do.”
