NAACP targets black conservatives at national convention

Conservative black voices are gagged by the NAACP because conservatism doesn’t conform with the group’s narrative.

Fox News contributor Deneen Borelli and her husband, Dr. Tom Borelli, appeared on Fox and Friends Wednesday to talk to Steve Doocy about being blacklisted at the NAACP convention in Orlando.

Mrs. Borelli indicated she’d been blacklisted for a number of years.

“I’ve been trying to get the NAACP to come out and take a stand when black conservatives are criticized and targeted because of our views,” she said.

“All I want to do is talk about people empowering themselves, how they can be self-sufficient and not rely on others, not rely on government,” but black leaders aren’t interested in this message, she noted.

Dr. Borelli, a senior FreedomWorks fellow noted that they wanted to rent space for a FreedomWorks booth, but were turned away with the explanation that there was no room.

“But clearly, when we went there, we took some shots,” he said. “There was a lot of room. Since when does a non-profit [like the NAACP] reject money?” he asked.

“The message that was communicated by the NAACP and others from the liberal side is not empowerment,” she noted, but rather “victimization.”

Mrs. Borelli is the author of “Blacklash: How Obama and the Left Are Driving Americans to the Government Plantation.”
