The NAACP has betrayed its ideology to maintain its power, says Tom Borelli, a senior fellow at FreedomWorks, which is staging an Empower.org Liberty Summit as a black Republican response to the civil rights group's convention.

"It's really intimidation, what's going on with the NAACP. They're trying to segregate out black conservatives . . . that's what's really outrageous here,'' Borelli said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"My wife, Deneen Borelli, a prominent tea party speaker, wanted to speak at the NAACP meeting and they refused her [the] ability to speak [and] segregated her down to the exhibit hall.

"They're trying to silence a conservative voice, a black conservative voice, because they're embarrassed of the progressive policies that are failing under President [Barack] Obama.''

Borelli said it boils down to the NAACP's attempting to maintain the status quo.

"The NAACP is just another establishment with – their leaders are trying to hang onto power so they can go to the resorts and hang out with key politicians, and they're trying to silence black conservatives who have a message of empowerment,'' he said.

"That's what they're afraid of, and some of the NAACP policies are harmful to the black community. My God, they have a climate justice program that supports President Obama's war on fossil fuels, his war on coal.

That's going to increase electricity prices and that's going to harm blacks who have the lowest disposable income. That's taking money out of their pockets.

Borelli said African-Americans must "wake up to a message of real liberty, not to a progressive agenda, because [it] has failed them for how many years? Just think of it.''

FreedomWorks is a Washington, D.C.-based lobbying group that promotes less government, lower taxes, and more economic freedom.
