The National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People recently rushed to blame President Donald Trump for the increase in hate crimes.
The group posted that they are deeply troubled by the recent racist and homophobic-fueled attack against activist Jussie Slomlett. They said there is a direct correlation between the rise of hate crimes of this nature, which is exemplified in the continuous as well as other reported crimes, and President Donald J. Trump’s xenophobic rhetorical and racist policies.
Smollett was found guilty on five out of six counts for felony disorderly conduct. He was accused of fabricating an anti-gay hate crime and filing false police reports.
The NAACP, a civil rights group that has become a left-wing activist organization, has more than two million members.
Although the NAACP was quick to respond to the attack on the same day that it was reported, they have yet to comment on Smollett’s conviction. Is that so? Why is Trump blaming Trump for the attack when they don’t have to issue a mea-culpa or a statement of solidarity with him? The NAACP should not only speak out about Smollett’s conviction but also apologize to Donald Trump.
Because the NAACP was quick to jump on both the Rittenhouse acquittal and the guilty verdict of Ahmaud Abery, their silence is especially telling.
