Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, May 23, 2020

Derrick Johnson, president and CEO of the NAACP, made the following statement about a remark by former Vice President Joe Biden during his Friday morning interview on "The Breakfast Club." "Yesterday, former Vice President Joe Biden made a comment about the NAACP's endorsement. We want to clarify that the NAACP is a non-partisan organization and does not endorse candidates for political office at any level. Persons affiliated with the NAACP at the national, state, and local levels are free to make candidate endorsements in a personal capacity, but they do not reflect support by the NAACP as an organization. The NAACP has one mission and that is fighting for and advancing our Black communities towards an equitable reality. Our primary focus at this moment is to ensure that our communities that have been victims of domestic terrorism and disproportionately impacted by this pandemic have the opportunity to cast their powerful vote come November."

Gracie, I normally avoid your panic threads like the plague, but sorry to pop your bubble.

The national NAACP never endorses candidates for any political office.

We want to clarify that the NAACP is a non-partisan organization and does not endorse candidates for political office at any level.
Guess you couldn't read past the freaking second sentence, huh.

No wonder you defend Trump. You refuse to read anything past the headlines just like him.

You're right they don't, but they "raise awareness" on issues according to the Naacp themselves and if you don't understand that they only "raise awareness"

positively for one candidate and negatively for another... then you can't read either.

VP Biden's statement today represents the arrogant and out-of-touch attitude of a paternalistic white candidate who has the audacity to tell Black people, the descendants of slaves, that they are not Black unless they vote for him," Johnson said in a statement.
"This proves unequivocally that the Democratic nominee believes that Black people owe him their vote without question; even though, we as Black people know it is exactly the opposite. He should spend the rest of his campaign apologizing to every Black person he meets."

Founder of BET

It's going to take some major league spin for the NAACP to give positive "raise awareness" points when it comes to his senatorial record on things

like busing. I'm certain they will be up to the challenge.

"The committee also included Senator Thomas Eagleton of Missouri, who was a fierce opponent of busing policies and who co-authored yearly amendments with Senator Joe Biden of Delaware on HEW appropriations bills to prohibit federal funding for the practice."

Remember when President Zero assumed all black people know each other?

www.vox.com

Immediately, Trump treated Ryan as if she were personally aligned with the Congressional Black Caucus " even as she insisted that she's "just a reporter."
Here's the exchange:
RYAN: When you say the inner cities, are you going to include the CBC, Mr. President, in your conversations with your urban agenda, your inner-city agenda?
TRUMP: Am I going to include who?
RYAN: Are you going to include the Congressional Black Caucus and the Congressional Hispanic Caucus?
TRUMP: Well, I would. I tell you what: Do you want to set up the meeting? Do you want to set up the meeting?
RYAN: No, no, no. I'm just a reporter.
TRUMP: Are they friends of yours? Set up the meeting.
RYAN: I know some of them, but I'm sure they're watching right now "
TRUMP: Let's go. Set up a meeting. I would love to meet with the Black Caucus. I think it's great, the Congressional Black Caucus. I think it's great.

Watching Trump supporters stretch to make a single Biden comment an ongoing scandal is entertaining. Trump craps out a dozen offensive comments on Twitter before his breakfast.

Joe Biden voted yes on creating the department of Education.

"I did not oppose busing in America," Biden, who represented Delaware in the US Senate from 1973 to 2009, responded. "What I opposed is busing ordered by the Department of Education. That's what I opposed."

Who said that Biden wasn't a politician. Sounds like one to me.

Some members of the NAACP might gasp at the sight on one of the names below.

In 1975, shortly after Boston residents protested and rioted over the city's desegregation order, Biden came out in favor of an amendment introduced by North Carolina Sen. Jesse Helms, a staunch opponent of civil rights legislation and desegregation efforts.

Helms responded by welcoming Biden "to the ranks of the enlightened."

The Helms amendment was defeated, but Biden then introduced a similar amendment.

The measure passed, outraging Massachusetts Republican Edward Brooke, who at the time was the only black senator in Congress. Brooke called the Biden amendment "the greatest symbolic defeat for civil rights since 1964." Biden later introduced a second amendment that explicitly barred the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare from ordering busing, but left other integration measures intact.

They didn't endorse Biden.

Instead, they said they really look forward to working with him if he wins.

And they supported the Trump impeachment and slammed the impeachment vote in the Senate.

So no, they didn't officially endorse Biden. But they sure as ---- support Biden over Trump.
