Big Government NAACP Not Pleased With Tim Scott Pick

Why? Tim Scott refuses to toe the NAACP line

(Daily Caller) The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People isn’t too excited about the appointment of Rep. Tim Scott to South Carolina’s soon-to-be-vacated U.S. Senate seat.

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley announced her appointment of the black Republican during a noon press conference in Columbia, South Carolina.

This appointment makes Scott the only Black Senator.

“Mr. Scott certainly comes from a modest background, experience, and so forth, and should be sensitive to those issues,” Hilary Shelton, senior vice president for advocacy and policy at the NAACP said, referring to Scott’s impoverished single-parent upbringing in Charleston, SC.

“Unfortunately, his voting record in the U.S. House of Representatives raises major concerns,” Shelton said.

Shelton explained that the NAACP platform is crafted through an annual voting process which engages grassroots-level delegates who vote on the group’s national agenda. That agenda calls for an expansive role for federal government spending in black communities.

Scott, Shelton said, would likely work against that agenda, favoring instead the “small government” posture of Ronald Reagan and that president’s Secretary of Education, William Bennett.

“Small government usually means, as it’s being described these days, the elimination of the role of government and support for initiatives and programs that are crucial for the African-American community,” Shelton said.

Apparently the NAACP prefers the big government approach that has kept so many Blacks in abject poverty, completely beholden to the Central Planning Office. Apparently, the NAACP has forgotten that the second “A” stands for “advancement”. Perhaps they think it stands for Acedia, ie, stagnation.

    Why is there just one approved "black agenda"?... I would think the NAACP would be embarassed about this statement....

Guess the NAACP is fully invested in enslavement.

’cause the black man apparently is not smart enough to do anything on his own. He cannot register to vote, cannot get himself ID or even get a job. If big govt isn’t there to help the african American man, he will not survive. Listen, this is the worst kind of enslavement. It’s degrading and demoralizing. But I do know that there are far more African Americans who can do all of these things- I know for a fact they can and DO get ID for all sorts of reasons, not excluding visiting loved ones in prison. (and where I have witnessed people of all races with ID) . And yet they still vote democrat.

It is of no small discovery that the NAACP has reduced itself to a self serving organization befitting house blacks that cow tow to the lead dog.
Remember, the view never changes unless your the lead dog.
Nice to see we finally have one.

If I were he, I’d form a “Senatorial Uncle Tom Caucus”, just to piss ‘em off.
