NAACP issues travel warning for state of Floriida | Eastern North Carolina Now

In a blatantly political move to try to damage Governor deSantis, the NAACP has issues a travel warning for the state of Florida.  However, actual statistics show that their claims do not hold water, and even some of the liberal media have confronted them on that.  The NAACP's chairman lives in Tampa and some outraged Floridians have offered to help him move out of the state if he thinks it is so bad.

Historically, NAACP travel boycotts have usually resulted in increased travel to the targeted state.  The NAACP seems to be galloping leftward to compete with the Marxist BLM.

If you look, I just respond. If it sounds like a broken record ask the site moderators to select different topics. You can't just post crazy stuff and expect everyone to agree.

Little Bobbie, you have quite the tunnel vision - 3 topics (race, climate, radical gender ideology) and a limited range of talking points from the far left narrative. Otherwise, you don't seem to have any arguments for anything outside the narrow range of those talking points. That seems to be a broken record in every thread you venture into.

Love it when the expression "you people" is used. Acceptance that they exist, isn't enticement. I think you need to sort your own stuff out.

What is hurting kids is enticing them into this miserable "trandsgender" hell. You people take advantage of impressionable young kids and destroy their lives, Groomer Bob.

It's your obsession man. They way you hurt kids you don't like makes you the monster.

What you are promoting is grooming children. Most gender confused children will naturally grow out of it, but you grommers want to present it as normal, hoping they will not gorw out of it. That is very damaging to children who could be living normal lives but will not due to the grooming you support. While a child is gender confused, they should not be bullied for it but they should not be told it is normal and have it promoted. The British NHS now tells their doctors that with gender confused children, they should not suggest new names or pronouns as they should just be encourage to grow out of it, as most will. When institutions like public schools try to lock them in to what for most should be a transitory phase, THAT is what is really damaging to children.

But, you are deflecting. The real issue in this thread is the outlandish political hatchet job by the radicalized NAACP against Florida that does not match the data or the truth.

Disagreement is not an attack. In a free society one can disagree without the Chihuahua losing its mind. Nobody wants to see children hurt. However, gay and trans kids exist. Your rhetoric hurts them. Your participation whipping up the mob hurts them. Actual kids. Kids you don't care about, but kids all the same.You're a bully CT. I don't like bullies.

People are voting with their feet to move to Florida. It is the state with the largest in-migration from other states of any state in the union, and a majority of those moving to Florida are registering Republican. And guess what? Under Governor deSantis, the black population of Forida has increased from in-migration faster than the white population. That is ordinary black folks voting with their feet in favor of Florida.

Ordinary black folks see Florida a lot differently than the politicisned NAACP leadership.

The national NAACP's problem is that they have now embraced radical homosexuality, the "Gaystapo" and radical gender ideology. I temember when the NC branch of the NAACP did that under the radical round reverend and a number of black preachers dropped their membership in the organization. I heard of one who preached a sermon about the NAACP taking Satan into its heart.

Grooming is sexualizing young children to prepare them for underage sexual activity. Grroming is exactly what radical gender ideology that you support does. Conservatives oppose sexualization of young children.

Bagdad Bob, you claim to be a white, straight, male but your posts here constantly attack all of those groups, usually unfairly. If you want to see self loathing, look in a mirror.

I think your definition of "grooming" is clouded by self loathing due to your latent homosexuality and obsession with children.. Thats what I think

You make up fantasy "lynch mobs" in your twisted woke miind, Little Bobbie, but you refuse to condemn the very real lynch mbo of "transgender" goons that attacked Riley Gaines. While all "transgenders" are not goons, the ones who attacked Riley Gaines certainly were.

Shining a light on the false premises of your woke far left narrative, Little Bobbie, is NOT "lying". It is ecposing truth. Calling it a lie is just the Orwellian way you woke fools operate.
