National NAACP Against Arizona Immigration Law, CA Branch Takes Money from Civil Rights Violators!

The NAACP has come out against the AZ immigration law that is being mischaracterized by our national media.

“Governor Brewer’s signature on SB1070 is another attempt to roll the clock back on civil rights protections in this country.”

Attempt means that it didn't happen or hasn't happened. Two years ago, we told you that the CA branch of the NAACP actually TOOK MONEY from known civil rights violators: PECHANGA.

The president of the California NAACP has been paid more than $40,000 in consulting fees – and the organization itself has received $60,000 – from a coalition of Indian tribes at the same time the civil rights group has endorsed four ballot measures pushed by its tribal benefactors.
The payments to Alice Huffman, who has served as president of the state conference of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People since 1999, continue a three-year pattern in which Huffman's political firm has been paid hundreds of thousands of dollars by special interest groups.
Those same interests, including tobacco and pharmaceutical companies, have also donated tens of thousands of dollars directly to the state NAACP while receiving the organization's backing.

OP: The Pechanga Band has stripped 25% of their tribe of their voting rights, right to due process, right to have attorneys present, right to confront their accusers, in a thus far successful effort to eliminate two large voting blocs. Now, a group that proclaims they are for civil rights, sides with violators of civil rights, all for $100,000 grand. I may be mistaken, but I'm pretty sure that the only African-American members of Pechanga, who were Hunter family members were kept from the tribes schools, being thrown out when they were disenrolled

AIRRO wrote a letter to Alice Huffman HERE

Get the drift: POTENTIAL civil rights violation NO WAY ACTUAL CIVIL RIGHTS VIOLATION: OKAY!!

Talk to me O.P. I know the school story, but I am unaware of this particular detail?

I saw Jay Leno at Correspondent Dinner his best line was; “That was my favorite story (this year) Republicans and a Lesbian bondage club. It’s ironic, Republicans don’t want lesbian getting married but they do like watching them “tie the knot”. So I thought that was interesting.”

You can say the same about Tea Party, they say they respect the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence but they do not mind passing laws, through weak Governors who only care about getting reelected on the backs of undocumented workers, that will not pass Constitution muster, just like Arizona’s House Bill 2779 from two years ago, keep passing them Arizona and the rest of us will continue to challenged them and you will fail in a court of law (and yes we will boycott you). Their phony patriotism is sickening, they are just racists going by another name. We all know you are just itching to put a sheet on their head? Let’s face it the Republicans had eight years to deal with health care, immigration, climate change and financial oversight and governance and they failed. It appears that the Republican Party is only good at starting wars (two in eight years, with fat contracts to friends of Cheney/Bush) but not at winning wars as seen by the continuing line of body bags that keep coming home. The Republicans party will continue turned inward to their old fashion obstructionist party (and their Confederacy appreciation roots) because they continue to allow a small portions (but very loud portion) of their party of “birthers, baggers and blowhards” to rule their party. I will admit that this fringe is very good at playing “Follow the Leader” by listening to their dullard leaders, Beck, Hedgecock, Hannity, O’Reilly, Rush, Savage, Sarah Bailin, Orly Taitz, Victoria Jackson, Michele Bachmann and the rest of the Blowhards and acting as ill programmed robots (they have already acted against doctors that perform abortions). The Birthers and the Tea party crowd think they can scare, intimidate and force others to go along with them by comments like “This time we came unarmed”, let me tell you something not all ex-military join the fringe militia crazies who don’t pay taxes and run around with face paint in the parks playing commando, the majority are mature and understand that the world is more complicated and grey than the black and white that these simpleton make it out to be and that my friend is the point. The world is complicated and people like Hamilton, Lincoln, and Roosevelt believed that we should use government a little to increase social mobility, now it’s about dancing around the claim of government is the problem. The sainted Reagan passed the biggest tax increase in American history and as a result federal employment increased, but facts are lost when mired in mysticism and superstition. For a party that gave us Abraham Lincoln, it is tragic that the ranks are filled with too many empty suits and the crazy Birthers who have not learned that the way our courts work is that you get a competent lawyer, verifiable facts and present them to a judge, if the facts are real and not half baked internet lies, then, and only then, do you proceed to trial. The Birthers seem to be having a problem with their so called “facts”. Let’s face it no one will take the Birthers seriously until they win a case, but until then, you will continue to appear dumb, crazy or racist, or maybe all three. I heard that Orly Taitz now wants to investigate the “Republican 2009 Summer of Love” list: Assemblyman, Michael D. Duvall (CA), Senator John Ensign (NV), Senator Paul Stanley (TN), Governor Mark Stanford (SC), Board of Ed Chair, and Kristin Maguire AKA Bridget Keeney (SC), she wants to re-establish a family values party, that’s like saying that the Catholic Church cares about the welling being of children in their care, too late for that.

are you serious? You missed the auditions for best stand up comic.
Hope the GREAT ONE in the WHITE HOUSE can save the world from all those bad people.

Mr. Lee, yes, Hunter family has African Americans and if you look at the link and video of Macarro lying to KNBC, our cousin who is telling the story about her children being removed... her African American PECHANGA children...

O Pechanga said...

Orly Taitz? Who's she?

O Pechanga said...

Well, let's hope more of Montana's friends come by, we can use the traffic.

Interesting reference to violence with the birthers and tea party when nothing is further from the truth.

Yet there WAS violence on May Day...

I think I have been clear about my opinions about that action, regardless of the ethnicity of the child, so I don't take any special concern based on the child ethnicity, but I feel it extremely unfortunate and inhumane. These kids are old enough to suffer some sort of emotional effect from these actions. Thanks for the answer, O.P.

But it would be a shame if the only way some groups who claim to be for civil rights would ever take a look at what has happened to us is because one of our relatives happened to marry a black man and her children can be considered African American.

But even so the NACCP has not only ignored our plight but have accepted money from tribes who have violated their citizens' rights.

But I would welcome help even if it was because of what I stated in the first paragraph of this post but so far, it appears none is to be found.
