Fireworks at NAACP meeting: Watch me get verbally attacked

Fireworks at NAACP meeting: Watch me get verbally attacked

No one said being on the front lines of liberty was going to be easy, and this turned out to be especially true at the 105th NAACP annual meeting that is being held at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas.

My goal, as I wrote here, was nothing more renegade than simply exposing the attendees to the opportunities offered by seeking free-market solutions to problems plaguing the black community.

However, my presence at the meeting was not welcomed by all.

Rev. C.L. Bryant and I were verbally attacked by an attendee just for daring to show up.

Progressives Today captured the incident at the FreedomWorks booth in the exhibit hall.

Later today, I’m leading a Liberty Summit panel discussion at the same hotel where the NAACP meeting is being held. Wish me luck.
