The NAACP bending into pretzels to explain its support for a now-former Massachusetts State Representative Carlos Henriquez – a strong supporter of gun control – who was expelled from his post for beating a college girl he was sleeping with because she wouldn’t have sex with him.
Because he’s black.
The NAACP boss compared Henriquez’s domestic violence crime with jaywalking.
Is it time to re-brand the NAACP as the National Association for the Advancement of Colored Perps? Hopefully not.
(National Review) – Massachusetts state representative Carloz Henriquez was convicted last Wednesday of assaulting a woman who refused to have sex with him and was sentenced to six months in prison. Following his conviction, the president of the New England Area Chapter (NEAC) of the NAACP, Juan Cofield, jumped to Henriquez’s defense, comparing the assault on and beating of a woman to jaywalking.
“[Henriquez] was convicted of two misdemeanors — not felonies — misdemeanors, and there is no standard in the House for expulsion based on misdemeanor convictions” Cofield said on a radio show late last week. “Almost every one of us . . . commits a misdemeanor. Jaywalking is a misdemeanor. Would you have a state representative legislator expelled from the House for jaywalking?”
