NAACP Chairman: Calls Tea Party Racists, Taliban Wing, Deserves IRS Scrutiny

Julian Bond, chairman emeritus of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, joined anchor Thomas Roberts on MSNBC on Tuesday where he said that he did not believe the federal government was complicit in any wrongdoing given the news that the Internal Revenue Service singled out conservative groups for added scrutiny. He said that it is right of the government to look into the Tea Party, which he called “overtly racist” and the “Taliban wing of American politics.” Bond made these comments after noting that his group was illegitimately targeted by the IRS in 2004.
Bond said that his group was singled out by the IRS in 2004 after he delivered a political speech critical of President George W. Bush. Though his organization was later cleared, Bond said that his group was “unfairly targeted.”
However, Bond said that there are no parallels between that case and the charge that the IRS devoted undue scrutiny to conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status.
I don’t think there’s a double standard at all,” Bond said. “I think it’s entirely legitimate to look at the tea party.”
I mean, here are a group of people who are admittedly racist, who are overtly political, who tried as best they can to harm President [Barack] Obama in every way they can,” Bond continued.
They are the Taliban wing of American politics and we all ought to be a little worried about them,” Bond asserted.
When asked if his assessment of the Tea Party was “a little harsh,” Bond said that it was not. “The truth hurts,” Bond insisted.

    It looked like the whole time Malika was sitting at her chair beside of Joe, she was chomping at the bit. Think this might have been bothering her, that Joe is suddenly turning on Dems? What a change. Is this short lived? Will the media take offense of the invasion of their privacy and demand Holders resignation and prosecution?


    Julian Bond states that the Tea Party is “Admittedly Racist”, “overtly racist”, and the” Taliban wing of American politics”. Is it not against the law to engage in hate speech and these are out and out lies derived from Democrat Party talking points, which are absurd lies. My question on this is how is it that this non-profit can engage in this type of conduct and retain their tax exempt status? I surely think that whatever the outcome of the ballooning IRS treachery that Mr. Bond should be charged as an accessory BEFORE the fact, as he is obviously part of the reason that the Tea Party was selected for that treachery. At exactly what point in time did the NAACP add racism to its practices. I don’t remember that from years ago.

    • because they are black victims, and have to be protected.

  • What Mr. Bond fails to accept is that those of us who are against The President’s policies are against them because they are wrong for the country. His color or race has nothing to do with this at all.

    • Apolloone

      You are correct and the key word you used is accept, because he knows it’s not the color of his skin but Obama’s communist policies he is forcing on us. Bond like all Obama defenders has nothing for his defense (of a man hell bent on destroying a free nation) but to use race, which is getting stale and sickening.

  • HeckSpawn

    I’ll bet a count of the muzzies in the Tea Party would be far, far below the number of muzzies in the NAACP.

  • rs1123

    I really cannot stand Julian Bond and I don’t care what color he is. If he is that dismissive of the Tea Party then he also would have had (likely still does not have) any use for the men (yes MEN) who founded this country. Bugger off Julian.

  • rick

    julian bond is ignorant and a disgrace!

  • Jaime Cancio

    All I see here is another black man trying their to inject racism in the middle of a scandal to deflect just attention away from the situation. And then to call Tea Party members; i.e. call them Taliban like, belies every convenience store robbery, every killing in Chicago, Detroit, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Trenton, New York, Harlim, Washington D.C., not a racist problem even though all those crimes are committed by black men…of 513 murders in Chicago in 2012 461 murderers were blacks. Of the over 3,200 shooting in Chicago in 2012 some 2,700 of those shooting were by blacks. Julian Bond is himself a purposeful racist if he cannot see this…America is wise to the tactic used by Bond and this time it will not work. Be it a white man or a black man, if there is a crime punish the criminal to the fullest extend of the law no matter the skin color…now Julian Bond, go away and sit far from the front of the room…Bond disgraces himself and makes people look down on other blacks…and that is not fair.

  • dane1947

    Bond your just another obama scumbag,racist and if any party is associated with the Taliban wing it’s obama, you and the Democratic party! Move out of this county now!

  • There are always idiots in this world, and bond is one of them.

  • I would like to see the NAACP and their “non-political”, “tax free”, 501c3 status investigated. The 501 section is one of the most abused sections of tax related law on the books.

  • GIGator

    Racist? I bet he can’t even give you the correct definition of the word. To him and others like him, it’s racism if any white person criticizes Obama and it’s just a smoke screen, spread by the liberal, corrupt media. The IRS should investigate and take away tax exemptions, from the NAACP. For an organization to get the tax status, enjoyed by the NAACP, they can not be a political organization. It’s no secret and easily proven, that the group supports Democrats and spreads the Democrat propaganda. If Obama was white, he would have already been impeached and he damn sure would not have been re-elected, based on the economy, alone. The Tea Party should sue this idiot and others like him, that go around spreading lies, in an attempt to damage their reputation. Then and only then, will loud mouth racists, like Bond, stop running their ignorant mouths.

    • Whackajig

      DEFINITION of racism = someone who tells the truth about blacks

  • If this dumbass wants to see a racist, he has to look no further than the bathroom mirror in the mornings…….. jackass…….

  • Ah, Julian Bond. I thought he died by some blacks in a drive by in Chicago. Wishful thinking.

    • Whackajig

      What goes “clop clop clop, bang bang bang?
      Answer = Amish drive by shooting.

  • junkmailbin

    the black political activists are complete racists and race baters. Their income, prestige and sex life are based solely on denigration another group

  • haroldson

    sounds like the pot calling the kettle black, Myself I find blacks more racists then white people,

  • susan5042

    I hope they sue him!

  • michael

    If all white tea party supporters were racist, then why are we so supportive of great men like Allan West. There are many great black conservatives, especially women, that are treated so terribly by the liberal media yet the media are not called racists. Our beliefs have nothing to do with the color of a person’s skin, but rather their moral values and support of the Republic.

  • barto

    Bond needs to take a dose of truth and face the fact that he is as “RACIST” as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson!

  • marineh2ominer

    I am seventy years young , for the last forty of those years all the racial hatred and bigotry I have witnessed was from blacks , directed at whites , directed at hispanics , directed at orientals . I have seen prejudice , both official and unofficial directed at me . I have NEVER directed prejudice towards ANY race . This , more than anything else , tells me that Julian Bond is a bigoted racist of the highest order . I can’t understand why all those that find this country so intolerant do not leave and go somewhere they might feel welcome , I certainly would if I felt put upon by the majority AND the other minorities . Julian Bond , you are an unmitigated A–hole .

  • Can’t fix stupid and this guy is a racist butt head from the get go, a master of the plantation of all races and colors.

  • American of European decent

    The chairman of a Racist Group NAACP calling conservatives racist, how uneducated. Guess he was proud of the democrats in their support for the KKK. The Crack the democrats are passing out must be pretty strong,

  • What else would you expect this race hater to say. Worst part is if you take any stock in the trash that he spews.

  • The NAACP has long past served it’s purpose and is no longer needed. It’s still being in existence today is racist.

    • Whackajig

      How is it correct and fair for congress to have a “black caucus”?

    Thank u in advance for allowing me to blow off some

    Julian Bond>>”I mean, here are a group of people who

    are admittedly racist, who are overtly political, who tried as best they can to
    harm President [Barack] Obama in every way they can,” Julian Bond.

    I am a 1st Brigade Tea Party and

    have NEVER heard anyone admit being racist. There are extremist as in anything

    – NAACP on liberals side- but can’t paint all conservatives w/ that wide brush.

    No intelligent person can stereotype everyone in any group. That’s the word

    that trips up liberals, intelligent. There is no lie which will come from
    Liberals lips except to cover up, promote socialism or did I mention cover up.
    My Grandmother once told me, “anyone that constantly lies has no
    conscience.” That is what is missing in most Liberals personal character –
    No Conscience. How could these Lib Leaders stand there w/ a straight face and
    tell us what they know good and well is a bold face lie? Weak character and NO

    >>>A little background on Julian Bond: >>> “In the 1980s

    Bond lost even more ground, narrowly surviving a challenge to his Senate seat.

    Thomas wrote that Bond’s opponent “charged him with inaccessibility, absenteeism,
    and inattention to local concerns.” Bond’s family also suffered from his
    preoccupied behavior. In 1983 Stephanie Oliver noted in Essence that at one
    time, his youngest daughter thought he lived in the airport. Having to take
    second place to politics had led his wife to consider leaving him, but she
    remained hopeful: “There have been good spaces,”she acknowledged to Oliver.
    “He’s tried to be there. And he’s done a lot more

    with us in the past five or ten years than he did in the first few.” The challenges
    to Bond’s personal and political life eventually proved to be too burdensome.
    In 1986 he gave up his state Senate seat to run for U.S. Congress, but lost the
    Democratic primary to his longtime friend and SNCC colleague, John

    Lewis – another blind, narrow minded apologist from NAACP – His marriage also

    fell apart, and in 1987 his wife accused him of using cocaine. She publicly
    recanted her statement, but the fact that his alleged girlfriend at the time
    received a 22-year sentence on drug charges did little to help his reputation.
    In 1989 the couple divorced, and the next day Bond was named in a paternity
    suit. Though he denied the charges at first, in May of 1990 he admitted to
    fathering the child and was ordered to pay child support.

    Nice guy. Anyone can be head of NAACP w/ little or no training. Keep repeating

    the same old racist; liberal, worn out rhetoric that the Democrats tell them

    and you’re an officer. I ran into Rev. Joseph Lowery, past NAACP president and

    went up to him, addressed him as Reverend Lowery, introduced myself and

    extended my hand to shake. He didn’t even look at me, mumbled something and

    shuffled off. He was the bitterest faced, unresponsive, arrogant jack-ass. That

    man was the biggest racist of all NAACP people that I ever heard. Every

    sentence – especially w/ TV cameras rolling – he would use the racist card

    time. I bet a dime to a donut he wasn’t a real, creditably ordained minister

    either. I had a crazy uncle claim he was a reverend.

    Anyone who buys – Hussein Obama, “what does it matter now” Haglliary

    Haeri “raid and pillage’ or “smallest piglet” Reid and of course our favorite

    1950s hair doo – Nancy “it passed so now we can read to see what is in it”

    & “unemployment is good and will stimulate the economy” Peloser – is

    politically, socially, historically and common sensibility uneducated.

    If you don’t pay taxes u should not have a vote. One last thing, liberals

    conveniently forget is that the KKK was started by the Democrat Party who

    the lie that they are for the poor. How long have the liberals claimed to be

    for the poor but how has that worked? Are the poor better off today vs. 1960’s?

    No. How many centuries or generations are liberals going to play the same old

    worn out message? Forever. That’s how they plan to stay in power – keep the

    poor down forever. Libs like to quote Repub Abraham Lincoln but they seem to

    a couple; (1) “What is conservatism? Is it not adherence to the old

    and tried, against the new and untried?”– February 27, 1860 – Cooper

    Union Address (2) “I believe it is an established maxim in morals that he

    who makes an assertion without knowing whether it is true or false, is guilty

    of falsehood; and the accidental truth of the assertion, does not justify or

    excuse him.” (3) “You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the

    strong. You cannot help small men by tearing down big men. You cannot help the

    poor by destroying the rich. You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down

    the wage payer. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your

    You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatreds. You cannot

    establish security on borrowed money. You cannot build character and courage by

    taking away a man’s initiative and independence. You cannot help men

    permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.

    –August 11, 1846 Letter to Allen N. Ford

      Regarding stereotypes. It is unfair to paint an entire group with the same broad brush. However, stereotypes do not arise out of someone’s imagination. Stereotypes begin because a large number of a group exibit certain traits or tendencies. One example of a stereotype is “you know how those Ns lie.” I wonder if ovomit is helping to dispell that one?


    I’ve read his future in the Tarot Cards… Julian Bond will die soon of cancer. And the prostate cancer may be the one to do it. Too bad he will not ask for forgiveness before he goes.

  • Whackajig

    What’s up with this one? Did he not get his food stamps on time?

  • dufus

    It’s the pot calling the kettle black, and I said black. MSNBC and the NAACP what a pair to draw to!

    A leopard cannot change its spots, and you will never change, Julian. Once scum, always scum.

  • eyeball

    Why does anyone even put a microphone in front of this loser any more? He doesn’t know, and it’s not his fault. It’s his mind that doesn’t work anymore. He’s probably a decent guy, (maybe). Just don’t let him drive. Or walk around by himself.

  • Shutter

    It is amazing how these black racist organizations are so quick to claim anyone or any organization that disagrees with their bigotry is racist.

  • Chief47

    Julian Bond and this his NAACP brethren are among the most racist in the history of mankind. To suggest that it is the government’s right to do what the IRS did in respect to targeting “Obama enemies” is to confirm the long held myth that blacks are of lower intelligence than whites.

  • Hey Julius Streicher Bond: I’m LAUGHING in your racist libturd FACE!!! You are a liar and a waste of oxygen, and I look forward to hearing that you’ve kicked the oxygen habit. How ya like THAT, punk???

  • marineh2ominer

    And what of all the black tea party members Julia-ss , they are infinitely more intelligent than you and yet you pretend they don’t exist , further proof you are nothing more than a racist flunky for the demonratic regime . The NAACP WAS ONCE A PROUD EQUAL RIGHTS ORGANIZATION , BUT WITH THE CAREFUL GUIDANCE OF THE DEMONRATIC PARTY AND YOU THEY HAVE MORPHED INTO THE MOST RACIST CLUB IN THE COUNTRY AND ARE TOTALLY USELESS POLITICALLY .

  • voncile fullwood

    of course he would say that he is black and a racist to boot

  • voncile fullwood

    to start with Obama was given to much power he had the powerball in his hand now he don’t want to let go and now he thinks he and the rest of his cronies are above the law

  • Miguel51

    If we are racist for opposing Obama’s agenda let me set the record straight. We oppose the white half of Obama for trying to inject his socialism on our country. His black half is just too stupid to conceive such a plan but would make an excellent ghetto gangster.

  • jamohio

    Racism is kept alive by groups like the naacp!! Most conservatives have moved way beyond color!! Why can’t the black community do the same??

  • Why can’t the Democrats get over the fact that the Republicans were the one’s in history to free the slaves years ago. They continue to call us Racist because we let it bother us. The NAACP has always been Racist from the very beginning thinking that they pound on their chest and march with signs and call us prejudice and they get noticed and the press hangs on every word and the lies continue.

  • Veteranasm

    Another low class or no class bigot !!!

  • pysco

    NAACP is a racist and has always been a racist organization, the problem has been its been funded with tax payer dollars, and they have gotten away with being prejudiced, because of PC actions. And for the retard, Bond to make a statement about Taliban is hypocritical since this Administration supports the Taliban and Al Qaida, and has even supplied arms to them.
