Carlson: The NAACP is ‘an absurd fringe group’
The Daily Caller’s Tucker Carlson launched another attack at the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) on Hannity Monday evening.
Appearing on Fox’s panel discussion, Carlson’s latest outrage at the NAACP stemmed from its Martin County branch’s decision to cancel its Tuesday event and unitive Rep. Allen West (R-FL) from speaking after he insisted that “up to” 81 Democratic members of Congress were secretly Communists.
“The NAACP, storied history though it has, is a totally discredited group,” Carlson said. “And anyone that doesn’t think so doesn’t know much about the modern NAACP. It represents virtually no one. It’s bankrupt literally and morally. It’s an absurd fringe group and I don’t know why we pay any attention to what they think. We’re bullied into it because it was, at one point, a force for good.”
Carlson’s comments are the latest hostile statements he has said about the NAACP. In 2010, Carlson called the organization “totally discredited” and “pathetic.” He also labeled the NAACP a “sad joke that should be shut down” in 2007.
