NAACP Leader Calls Sen. Tim Scott Ventriloquist ‘Dummy’

NAACP is all about keeping people dependent on government.
Check it out:

The State reports that William Barber II (pictured), whom The Washington Post says is a rising and influential star in the NAACP, compared Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) to a ventriloquist dummy. During a speech in Columbia South Carolina, Barber said of Scott, “A ventriloquist can always find a good dummy.” Barber’s comments were unmistakably racially tinged. He went out of his way to link the fact that Scott is black to his opinion that he is nothing more than a puppet.

“A ventriloquist can always find a good dummy,” Barber said. He said, “the extreme right wing down here (in South Carolina) finds a black guy to be senator and claims he’s the first black senator since Reconstruction and then he goes to Washington, D.C., and articulates the agenda of the Tea Party.”

Scott responded by saying that Barber reminded him of “what not to do” during a weekend celebrating the life Rev. Martin Luther King.
