The NAACP is holding their 105th annual gathering in Las Vegas, Nevada this week. This year’s theme? “All in for justice and equality.” And what better venue could there be for fighting against injustice and inequality then a multimillion dollar Las Vegas resort, the lavish Mandalay Bay.
After years of rejection, black conservatives were allowed a single booth at the convention this year, but they’re still locked out of speaking at the convention.
As minimal and restricted as their presence is at the NAACP event, black conservatives are still met with open hostility by NAACP faithful because they fail to toe the Progressive line. Yesterday, conservatives Deneen Borelli, director of outreach at FreedomWorks, CL Bryant, a fellow at FreedomWorks, were harassed in the convention hall just because they are conservatives.
This was an awful display of intolerance by a group that claims to fight for inclusion and tolerance in society.
Apparently, if you do not toe the liberal line you are not welcome at the NAACP.
On Monday, these shunned black conservatives will hold their own “Empower Liberty Summit” in the same hotel, directly across the hall from the NAACP event. It’s the only way their voices can be heard.
