Idiots of the Day

You can't make this up.  Charles Taylor and Nsombi Half-Bright of the Mississippi NAACP asked all police officers to stay home on Election Day.  Watch the video clip of their Monday press conference posted below. 

The gist of the story is the Capitol Police set up a roadblock near Jackson State University Monday.  The roadblocks drew shrieks from the Mississippi NAACP as it claimed Republicans were engaged in voter intimidation.  WAPT reported: 

“Setting up roadblocks near precincts is a very suspicious form of voter intimidation,” said NAACP Jackson President Nsombi Lambright.

State NAACP leaders said they were surprised to see Capitol police officers set up a roadblock and stopped drivers near JSU one day before Mississippi’s general election.

“It was very alarming to us. It does raise a lot of questions about what the purpose of this checkpoint today was,” Lambright said.

“They were checking both license plates and licenses off individuals passing by right next to the largest voting precinct in the state of Mississippi, which is Jackson State University,” said state NAACP Executive Director Charles Taylor.

Monday morning, close to a dozen Capitol police SUVs with blue lights flashing set up on University Boulevard at Lynch Street as students came onto and left the JSU campus.

Standing outside the governor’s mansion, Taylor said he believes the heavy police presence near an HBCU on the eve of a major election is voter intimidation. The JSU Student Center is a voting precinct. Article.

What WAPT did not report is Mr. Taylor said is "We are asking that there will be no law enforcement out anywhere (tomorrow) in the state of Mississippi." 

A JSU student was murdered while a separate shooting took place on Dalton Street last month.  Another student was murdered last year.  Students write how scared they are to go to school on social media.  One student at my gym even created a video where she was sneaking to class while the Jaws music played in the background. That is the environment at Jackson State University right now. The university asked the Capitol Police for help.  The Capitol police answered the call with more patrols and a more visible police presence.  

However, none of that means anything to Half-Bright and her friends as grandstanding in front of cameras is more important than protecting students and that my friends, is the bottom line.

Why am I not shocked to learn that the news media chose to omit the most shocking statement made during this little demonstration. The folks working at these TV stations know nothing about impartiality and objective news reporting.

I've always heard education was the cure for ignorance, obviously that's not true.

S*** like this demands a "mental health day" which consists of leaving work early and laying in bed with a bottle (of milk) and crying myself to sleep.

The NAACP continues to live in the past. And that is not an accident. They know the organization has no useful place in the future.

@9:39 you are spot on, keep the donations coming to support the talking heads.
@9:26 when you are educated by online professors that are steeped in the same ignorance this is the result.
Half-bright? Couldn’t have a more descriptive last name.

Someone needs to force the NAACP to pickup the hundreds (yes hundreds) of “VOTE” signs they placed on Hwy 25 at every crossover from Holly Bush to Sandhill and down Hwy 43 past Pisgah. They are littering the road. How do I know the NAACP put them out? The top line reads NAACP.

So much for the "non-partisan election volunteer" t-shirt, if they're accusing Republicans of voter intimidation.

KF made up the "Half-Bright" name. Her real name is Half-Wit.

I'm sure the police presence deterred citizens with active warrants and driving stolen cars, who would otherwise be out voting.

@11:49 WRONG
The NAACP made the signs available to anyone who wants to distribute them into the community. Stop spreading your bigoted lies.

I welcome the police to set up anywhere, any day cause I have my credentials in order. Now if you are driving without drivers license, no insurance and or warrants you need to stay at home.

You know I never knew why I never joined any group such as the NAACP. Oh I know why, I can think for myself!

Nobody in Jackson Mississippi is intimidated by the po po!

Kingfish, I had to watch that twice. What?! At no point in time have I ever said---oh no, keep the police away. I happen to like seeing a police car around. This man actually said he wanted all the police in the state to just stay away. Dumbfounded.

Their job is to fight discrimination, if they can find it. If they can't find it, they simply make it up no matter how ridiculous. It's a living.

The NAACP and SPLC have made "victimhood" their middle name.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
