Both Lloyd Marcus, self described “Unhyphenated Black American” and William Owens have published pieces defending former Tea Party Express chairman and spokesman Mark Williams and criticizing the unceremonious bashing Mark took for his accurate remarks about the NAACP.
I will tell you that having traveled — and lived with — all three of those gentlemen during our three weeks on the road with the Tea Party Express III national tour last April, I know first hand the camaraderie, respect and mutual admiration all had for each other and the rest of the 30+ team members.
Owens’ piece today in News With Views takes a stand, and calls out some of our fellow Americans for their absolute idiocy and inability to see how they’re being manipulated by the Leftist bunch who would like nothing better than to foment a civil war, pitting brother against brother, Black against White, illegal aliens against American citizens. Fools, every one of them.
Americans cannot afford to be intimated and therefore, shroud our lives with props that make us into someone we’re not. Whenever we shy back, it takes an eye-opening perspective to jolt us into a reality that is, many times, like a cold splash of water to our face. America is in a wicked state of being right now. With a government that has concocted Lord knows what against our freedoms, liberties and wealth, we are existing on borrowed time, and most of us don’t have a clue. It is so absurd and devious what is unfolding right in front of our eyes, that if you spoke of the possibilities of a take over—the America that we have come to know—you would be assigned to the nut house. Then maybe I’m wrong. I hope I am.
America’s only hope is for those who are fearless to create a dialog that is sometimes rude and rogue. While I admit that it brings with it a tremendous amount of risk, I argue that the alternative makes the risk worth it. In fact, in this hour, anything less than revolutionary is pointless. Why? Because the era we are living in warrants radical intervention, lest we become lulled into a silent walk towards demise as a nation.

Truly the NAACP has failed most miserably to demonstrate a small element of character and guiding principle that reflects ALL people.
This fallout really shows how shallow we have become as a nation; I mean, really shallow: frail, thin-skinned, brains that are drained, hearts that are fearful, and no patience whatsoever.
Right on, brother William. Right on.
Lloyd Marcus is taking it a step further:
In light of the NAACP resolution accusing the millions of Americans who attend Tea Parties of embracing racists, Tea Party Express is hosting a National Black Conservative Press Conference.
Black conservative leaders, organization spokespersons, authors, entertainers and activists from across America will gather in Washington DC to introduce themselves and their individual roles in fighting the good fight promoting conservative principles, values and patriotism.
I have posted details of the National Black Conservative Press Conference and a list of speakers in an earlier post: Black Conservatives push back against Progressive Racists
National Black Conservative Press Conference
Date: Wednesday, August 4, 2010
Place: National Press Club, Washington DC
