On July 14th the NAACP passed a resolution condemning the racist elements with in the Tea Party movement. Needless to say that didn?t go over well with the Tea Party or the conservative movement in general.
Now, I’ll be honest, I haven?t read the text of the resolution, but I find it hard to believe that the NAACP was actually condemning the entire Tea Party Movement, and was instead just targeting the racist fringe elements, elements that tend to exist within all most any political movement. Elements that most Tea Party leaders themselves have been trying to remove.
So, on the 19th, Andrew Brietbart dug up some video clips from an NAACP awards dinner in March where Shirley Sherrod, USDA Georgia Director of Rural Development gave a speech, edited them to remove any context, and posted them on his site Big Government in an attempt to prove a point. Using editied video to undermine your political opponents has exploded thanks to the advent of the YouTube era.
An ancient blood flows through my veins.
A blood that burns like the heart of the world.
A fire that fills my soul with the battle cries of a thousand Viking warriors on the charge.
I see harmony among the chaos.
I understand the need for balance in the universe.
With out Evil there can not be Good
With out Good there can not be evil.
To maintain the balance I call upon the sword and the hammer of war,
for these are the instruments of both life and death,.
I am kin to the Dragon and brother of men.
The creatures of the wood call me friend and the spirits of my brothers call me Fire Drake.
I am the fire that burns in the soul of the Earth
I am a hunter on the prowl
I am a lover of life and nature and staunch protector of both
Born under the sign of the lion
Both my love and my fury can be great
