But Mumia Is a Martyr

Aaron McGruder, who draws the "Boondocks" comic strip, considers Condoleezza Rice a "murderer", and apparently the NAACP agrees:

NAACP Chairman Julian Bond said over the weekend that he agreed with political cartoonist Aaron McGruder's characterization of National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice as "a murderer." ... "I don't like her because she's a murderer," the cartoonist announced.

The charged drew immediate condemnation from Armstrong Williams, who complained, "That is totally out of line to say she's a murderer."

Unfazed, McGruder repeated the accusation, stretching out his words, "S-h-e'-s a m-u-r-d-e-r-e-r."

What did Julian Bond, longtime civil rights activist and now the chairman of the NAACP, have to say about McGruder's accusation? Certainly not words of temperance or support for a successful African-American woman in high government office:

"I generally agree with his politics 100 percent and I think he explained himself well," the NAACP chief said.

The NAACP's message is clear -- African-American success will only be celebrated and supported as long as said African-Americans remember their place and kowtow to the leftist political goals of Bond, Jesse Jackson, and I suppose McGruder as well. Otherwise, be prepared to be slandered and vilified by those who claim to be working for the right to be free, including the freedom to choose your own politics. Three cheers to Armstrong Williams for immediately challenging these disgusting attacks. (via Andrew Sullivan)
