Beck: White People Lynched by the KKK Would Be Tea Party Activists Today
While discussing the IRS scandal on today's radio program, Glenn Beck lashed out at the NAACP because he was outraged over a statement made by former NAACP chairman Julian Bond that it was entirely legitimate for the IRS to target Tea Party groups for extra scrutiny.
"They are a joke," Beck said of the NAACP, calling them "an affront" to everything that Martin Luther King, Frederick Douglass, and Booker T. Washington stood for. "You are an affront to their memory. You really are."
Somehow, that discussion then prompted Beck to declare that "20% of the lynchings [carried out] by the KKK were of white people ... and you know what, I contend [that] the white people that were lynched are exactly the kind of people that would be in the Tea Party today":
