NAACP and the Overton window

The NFL protests have been unpopular in America.  You wouldn’t know that fro reading the popular media because of media bias.

The empty seats, canceling of football packages on TV packages, loss of revenue for the NFL, and loss of revenue for sponsors is testament to that.

Because this is a losing issue for the Left, the more extreme fringe is doubling down.

Forget kneeling for the National Anthem, they want to get rig of it all together.

The California NAACP is pushing to get rid of the national anthem that they’re calling racist and anti-black.

“This song is wrong; it shouldn’t have been there, we didn’t have it ’til 1931, so it won’t kill us if it goes away,” said the organization’s president Alice Huffman.

“The message got distorted, the real intentions got overlooked, it became something that’s dividing us, and I’m looking for something to bring us back together,” she said.

Huffman adds that the protests did lead her to look at the lyrics of the “Star Spangled Banner” especially the parts of the anthem we don’t typically sing.

“It’s racist; it doesn’t represent our community, it’s anti-black,” she said.

Let me ask the NAACP this question: do you want a race war?

Seriously?

The rise of white nationalism isn’t because Trump said something that might be a racist dog whistle. It is a direct blowback against this type of racial division.

What does the NAACP hope to gain from this?  It’s going to be a lot more than 15 more minutes of fame right now.  I couldn’t think of better white nationalist propaganda than a story about a far Left Wing group of blacks who want to ban the National Anthem, and is verifiable on Snopes.

This is beyond a “This is why Trump won” meme and is well into, this is how you get Klan marches in the streets territory.

I don’t know who the fuck though this was a good idea, but this needs to be tamped down now.

  1. An obvious question to ask is “what is her motive?” A plausible answer is “money” — people like Al Sharpton make their living from race baiting, perhaps she wants her piece of the action.
    Another question is “what will she attack next?” Perhaps the Declaration of Independence, after all it contains the phrase “merciless Indian Savages”. Or the Constitution, because it too refers to “indians”?
    And lest anyone think that’s too crazy, remember the howls when Trump predicted that “Washington and Jefferson are next” and sure enough, within weeks they were.
