RNC Spokesman Raffi Williams Bashes NAACP For Ignoring Historic Midterm Victories of Tim Scott and Mia Love

Raffi Williams, Deputy Press Sec. For the Republican National Committee Slammed The NAACP for congratulating failing to congratulate Republicans Tim Scott and Mia Love on their historic midterm election wins Tuesday. 

South Carolina's Tim Scott became the first African-American senator to win election in the South since Reconstruction, Mia Love became America's first black female Republican elected to Congress.

The NAACP released a statement about the a new Congress needing to pass a voting rights act, and that blacks were disenfranchised, but strangely nothing about the two historic wins.

Raffi Williams, who is a black American put the NAACP in its place via twitter.

The full NAACP Statement is below
The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is committed to leading the effort alongside other civil and human rights organizations and our newly elected Congress to pass a robust Voting Rights Act Amendment.

Equal access to voting remains paramount as numerous reports of voting irregularities emerged during the midterm elections yesterday. Malfunctioning voting machines, voters turned away because of erroneous voter ID laws, missing names of registered voters and long lines were among the major challenges that the NAACP fielded along with our Election Protection partners via the 1-866-Our-Vote hotline. We assert that passage of a robust Voting Rights Act Amendment is essential for the states previously protected under section 5 as well as for all Americans for the sanctity of our republic. We urge the newly elected Congress to join us in ensuring that all registered voters in our great country have unfettered access to the ballot box.

Cornell William Brooks, President and CEO of the NAACP: “This election was not about who won but the rather the citizens who lost the right to participate. This first election post the Shelby vs. Holder decision resulted in problems in every single state previously protected by the Voting Rights Act. For 49 years, these states were singled out because they had a history of discriminating against American voters. The Election Protection Hotline we manned with other concerned organizations fielded over 18,000 calls yesterday, many in those same states previously protected by the VRA. As we move forward—it is imperative that our newly elected Congress work with the NAACP and our partners to pass Voting Rights Act Amendment legislation that assures that all Americans have the franchise—our very democracy depends on it.”

It must really chap Juan's tail that his son called out the NAACP that way.

Jeff Dunetz said...

Actually Raffi is a friend. Juan is a father before he is a pundit and he is very proud of his son

Jeff Dunetz said...

Being proud has no bearing on whether he irritated by this. I'm proud of my kids but I still get irritated by some of their choices.

Jeff Dunetz said...

Well he is happy with his son's choices. As long as he works hard and well

Jeff Dunetz said...

And again, has no bearing. Good night Mr Dunetz.

LOL they still cry racism no matter what if dems won there wouldn't be anything on dead people voting, cats and dogs etc like the past 3 elections and republicans had proof but Holder did nothing? Now they don't even congratulate the winners but they cry about dems and forget that democrats created the KKK, and dems wanted to keep slavery 100% of them, How can they forget this? Only because of the UNIONS to keep there jobs so they can do nothing and work,,, I have seen this first hand all big 3 in Detroit. But WOW 18,000 calls well that wouldn't made a dent in what the AMerican people wanted us to STOP Obama not carry on his executive orders this is America not Obama ca ,,, He is President and has a congress he didn't use even when he held both offices and then the senate Reid just sat on bills from the house so Obama didn't have to veto jobs and stuff, Now I would get all 378 bills on Reid's desk put them all on floor pass them and put them ALL on OBAMA desk at once like he slammed Obamacare down our throats in 24hrs. Even congress had no time to read it and passed it,,,,,

You can bet your last dollar the US Supreme Court Jews ( Kagan, Ginsburg, Breyer) will all vote against the suit demanding the US list Jerusalem, Israel, as birthplace on US passports.

NAACP has been an absolute joke for decades now. This is no surprise at all. They are the ultimate racists: they literally believe that a black person can only be "truly black" (whatever the heck that means) if he/she buys the entire leftist party line.
