glenn-beckIn true GOP revisionist fashion, right-wing extremist Glenn Beck called the NAACP a “joke” and claims that the organization is an “affront” to civil rights leaders Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Booker T. Washington, and Frederick Douglass, reports

Beck was responding to the NAACP’s chairman emeritus, Julian Bond, who said that when the IRS targeted the civil rights organization in 2006 it was harassment. Conversely, Bond believes that the IRS was justified to target Tea-Party groups in what has become a mild scandal for President Barack Obama.

At issue for both groups was the legality of extra scrutiny for political reasons that would determine whether or not their tax exempt statuses would be revoked.

Bond told MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts, “I don’t think there’s a double standard at all. 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 Obama in every way they can,” Bond explained.

“[The Tea Party] is the Taliban wing of American politics and we all ought to be a little worried about them.”

Watch Bond’s comments here:

In  one of the most delusional statements in modern politics, Beck had this to say about the Tea-Party:

[Dr.] Martin Luther King marched with an awful lot of white people…20 percent of the lynchings in the south, 20 percent of the lynchings by the KKK, where of white people. And you know what? I contend, the white people that were lynched are exactly the type of people that would be in the Tea Party today.

Firstly, his numbers are questionable and to even make that comparison is a transparent attempt at false equivalency.

Secondly, the Tea Party has made a name for itself by being a purposely inflammatory, racially derogatory and bigoted group of people who want the government to take their hands off of their guns and medicare — at the same time. How that translates into being a group of peace-loving White people is anyone’s guess.

But if anyone is able to attempt the comparison with a straight face, it’s Glenn Beck.
