A newly-elected member of the state house is in the spotlight after claiming in an email that the diatribes of the NAACP’s leader are “racist” and a product of a “race-opportunist.”

The email sent by Representative Michael Speciale was sent to NAACP state president Rev. William Barber last week. It was sent in reaction to comments by Barber about ID required at voting. In a statement, Barber calls voter ID initiatives “national propaganda efforts by the far-right to justify the obvious tactic to suppress the votes of minorities, youth, disabled and the elderly,” and urges Republican legislative leaders to abandon their push for such a law in North Carolina.

Barber spoke at a news conference in Raleigh Friday morning. A subsequent news conference is being held in Greenville Friday afternoon.

Please believe me when I say that this man is going to be a shining star in the legislature, standing up for American values and being an obstacle to blunt the destructive efforts of the Left.

Of course the NAACP opposes voter identification. The simple fact is that there ARE convicted felons voting. There ARE illegal aliens voting. Worst of all, there ARE people casting multiple votes under several names.

They are all voting for Democrats and the entitlement mindset that is destroying this nation, so it’s okay with the NAACP.

The only people who give a damn about what that obese idiot with naacp saids are those useless, unemployed, uneducated, rascist themselves folks. His comments are based on hatred and complete false accusations that are intended to inflame the ignorance of those who believe it. This organization is represented by Jesse Jackson who used their funds to support his girlfriend and mother to another baby while his own son had ethics violations in Congress. Al Sharpton, man he is another complete and total idiot who backed the Duke prostitue over the sports story before the facts came out. Just because she was black she was right in his mind. This organization is full of rascist ninnies!
