Detroit NAACP Boss Rallies for Rep. Underwear Conyers

Civil rights underwear icon Conyers is getting a show of support.

Dozens of political, religious and civil rights leaders will gather in Detroit Monday for a rally to support embattled U.S. Rep. John Conyers.

Maybe they can wear underwear on their heads just like the rest of the #Resistance.

And now, the rally on Monday will feature some of Detroit's most influential leaders, including the Rev. Charles Adams of the Hartford Memorial Baptist Church, where the rally will be held, NAACP Detroit chapter President Rev. Wendell Anthony, as well as several members of the Wayne County Commission and the state House of Representatives.

The NAACP... putting CBC hacks first and black women last. But I can't wait till the next virtue signaling sessions where the NAACP joins Planned Parenthood and La Raza in condemning Trump as a sexist.

Gay-Dagnogo said she was particularly disheartened to see some members of the Michigan delegation, including: U.S. Reps. Bill Huizenga of Holland, Debbie Dingell of Dearborn, Sander Levin of Royal Oak and Dan Kildee of Flint Township, calling on Conyers to resign.

"They don't live here. They haven't asked us," she said. "For the delegation from Michigan to not even check in with folks of the district and automatically take the position of Nancy Pelosi is just wrong."

Do the folks in the district even have a position? Or just a default?

But anyway, it's been 30 seconds so it's time for the Race Card. 

"We always see a difference when the leader is a person of color. There's a rush to judgement," Gay-Dagnogo said. "It tells us that African Americans are disposable and that's why people are not engaged in the political process."

Just look at the difference between how white men like Matt Lauer, Kevin Spacey, Harvey Weinstein were treated. While Conyers still has his job.

Also Conyers' accuser is also a "person of color", but she doesn't count.

 Conyers' wife, Monica Conyers, is also expected to be at the rally, which will begin at 11 a.m. at the church, 18700 James Couzens in Detroit.

Does that violate her parole? And I hope she can get a good hotel room.

Calling her the "same old, same old," a local radio station said it fired former Detroit City Councilwoman Monica Conyers after she wanted to book a $750-a-night hotel room on the company's dime and use her congressman-husband's government ID card to get a discount on the room when he wasn't part of the trip.

Civil rights icons stay in $750 a night hotel rooms.
