Matt Barber: NAACP 'allowed itself to be played by 'the man''; marriage movement = 'soft racism'

The man never ceases to amaze me, be it his willingness to say things that the vast majority recognize as being a liability to his political movement or his clear attempts to sound "macho" by using denigrating language ("little pink wagon") that's obviously intended to make gays seem weak:

By backing the absurd, oxymoronic notion of so-called "same-sex marriage," the NAACP leadership has allowed itself to be played by "the man." (In this case "the man" is the mostly white, "progressive"-elite establishment.)

For decades now, well-organized, well-funded and politically powerful homosexual pressure groups have, with impertinence, hijacked the language of the authentic civil rights movement.

In what amounts to a sort of soft racism, this mostly white sexual anarchist faction has disingenuously and ignobly hitched its little pink wagon to a movement that, by contrast, is built upon the genuine and noble precepts of racial equality and humanitarian justice.

Actually, Matt, I much prefer to park my little pink wagon atop a nice stretch of high road. The view is much better for watching you speed up the pace by which your increasingly hostile-voiced movement will rhetorically implode below.

Then again, if you keep on working claims like the ridiculously offensive idea that African American supporters of equality are being played and manipulated by "the man," I won't have to watch all that much longer.
