A MOST IRONIC CENSORSHIP CASE … 

|| By FITSNEWS || Looks like the NAACP isn’t for the advancement of all “colored people.”  In fact it’s currently suing an Emmy Award-winning black citizen journalist for “trademark infringement, dilution and confusion” after he parodied the organization’s support for abortion.

Ryan Bomberger – co-founder of the Radiance Foundation – says the lawsuit is an effort to censor free speech.

“This lawsuit should be shocking to any American who values truth and the First Amendment,” Bomberger said in a statement. “The irony is painful. The NAACP is suing me – a black man – for exercising my Constitutionally-guaranteed right to free speech.”

Other groups – including the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) – agree with him.

“The right to parody prominent organizations like the NAACP is an essential element of the freedom of speech,” the ACLU argued in a brief filed with the U.S. fourth circuit, which heard the case late last month.

We agree …

What’s also interesting?  The district court judge who found Bomberger guilty – Raymond Jackson – wrote in his opinion that “the NAACP has no formal or official position or policy regarding abortion.”

Really?

Last time we checked the NAACP was on the record in support of abortion – had been for more than a decade, actually.

“A woman denied the right to control her own body is denied equal protection of the law, a right the NAACP has fought for and defended for nearly 100 years,” a 2004 press release from the organization stated.

What on earth was Jackson thinking stating the NAACP had no position on abortion?

Anyway, this article isn’t about the pro-life debate (we’re pro-life, by the way), nor is it even really about skin color … it’s about the right of individual citizens to speak freely.

That right continues to come under attack in America …

Liberals want your freedom only when it agrees with their agenda.

Yep, same as the Tea Party types. “I want no laws to restrict guns, but sure we should have a few to “protect marriage”. The extremists on both sides are always trying to legislate the world to follow THEIR particular sensibilities…

The motto of the NAACP (as well as every other democrat run bunch of BS) is “Everyone has the right to complain about ,and protest against anything you want, as long as it doesn’t complain about or protest against us, because then you are automatically wrong” Its the Hypocritical oath, (not to be confused with the Hippocratic oath)

In my opinion the NAACP has done more against the Black Community than they ever helped. They fill their coffers like Mssrs. Jackson and Sharpton and the heck with the real poor!

It would be racist if they didn’t sue him because he was black. If they are going to try and stifle free speech at least be fair about it and do it to everyone.

I remember being really confused as a child when watching Sanford & Son, Lamont would say something very poignant and Fred would call him a jive turkey.

People can actually have a conversation involving individuals of a different race without be a racist. You should try it sometime.

Look at the Democrat Party’s numbers. I think people have moved on. We gave Obama a chance, and he created a DISASTER…and all you have left is your RACE-Hate…You better come up w/ a new playbook, Dumb@$$…

PS: I do you give you credit for squeezing EVERY last once of value by playing race-hate politics. But unfortunately you used it to severely damage our nation and cause the suffering of millions of build-centric Americans. You would be ashamed if you were not so hideous, vapid and corrupt.
