The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) continues to show their leftist bias by saying they’ll fight back against President Donald Trump’s voter fraud investigation.
Cornell William Brooks, the NAACP’s president, sneered at Trump’s claim that “millions of fraudulent ballots were cast.”
“The only place you will find millions of fraudulent ballots are right beside that fake birth certificate for Barack Obama, inside the imagination of President Trump,” Brooks told CNN’s Wolf Blizter. “They don’t exist.”
Brooks then promulgated the race-bating left-wing canard that efforts to clamp down on voter fraud are aimed at curtailing voting rights.
“If the President insists upon conducting an investigation into voter fraud as a pretext for voter suppression, the NAACP, along with millions of Americans of every human heritage, will resist,” Brooks bloviated. “We will push back.”
Later on in the interview, Brooks reiterated his called to resist “massively.”
It’s only natural the NAACP–affectionaly known as the “the National Association for the Advancement of Liberal Colored People” by Rush Limbaugh–would promote such a leftist narrative since they routinely accuse Republicans like Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) of racism but fail to defend conservatives like Ben Carson from racial invectives.
While it’s certainly true that Trump is likely overstating his case, voter fraud is certainly a real issue and initiatives like voter identification laws aren’t actually racist. But the NAACP will “resist” in order to promote their narrative.
