The NAACP’s fomenters of fear, By Michelle Malkin • March 25, 2015

They just can’t help themselves — and their agenda-driven media enablers never, ever learn.

This week, the NAACP made national front-page headlines with a local press release demanding that the feds investigate the hanging death of a local man in Port Gibson, Miss.

Psaki will likely be the go-to person for the administration from here on in because for some reason Susan Rice’s credibility is more shot to hell than Joe Biden’s front door after he thought there was an intruder on the other side:.....To Read More....
