Luke Torian Blows Off The NAACP Debate

By Greg L | 8 October 2009 | 52nd HOD District | 13 Comments

UPDATE: So what was Torian doing instead of honoring his commitment to the NAACP?  Knocking back cocktails and eating oysters at a reception hosted by developers.  I guess we know where Torian’s actual loyalties lie now, don’t we?

Now this campaign season is getting seriously strange.  I heard tonight that Like Torian didn’t show up at the NAACP debate, effectively turning it into a press conference for the Republican (and non African-American) candidate Raphael Lopez.  No advance warning, he just didn’t show up.

I’m sure Jeanette Rishell will have a press release going out about this early tomorrow morning…

    Why didn’t someone who looked like him just fill in?

    Should politicians attend events sponsored by RACE-BASED groups, at all?

    Would they want to attend the La Raza debate, KKK forum, the Nazi discussion group? So why attend an event held by the, race-based, NAACP?

    The politicians should have all skipped the “colored people” forum and vowed to attend only events held by non-race-based groups.

    It’s the Twenty-first Century for Heaven’s sake, and we need political leaders who work for the common good and who will not pander to, “colored people” or any other race, gender or ethnic group.

    OK NAACP, now we will see what you’re really made of. You should “endorse” Lopez on principle. Not holding my breath you will, mind you. I want to hear from some black folks on this. Has the NAACP arrived at the point where if you’re black you don’t even need too show up to get their approval.

    True, some will say that the NAACP doesn’t endorse, rather, educate the public. Well educate this: Torian is taking our support for granted. Lopez respects you.

    It gets even better! Luke Torian skipped the debate to attend an oyster roast with free beer! He was at the NVBIA oyster roast last night. This is a great event and always fun, but he chose a gladhanding event with possible well heeled donors, instead of a serious debate of the issues with a fellow candidate who is also considered of “color”. The NAACP should be extremely ticked at this and should definately endorse Raphael Lopez!!!

    Torian should worry about the NAACP? 95% of the black folk would vote for him based on his color and to hell with principles.

    This is a really good opportunity for the NAACP to stand for principle over identity. If they take advantage of this opportunity, they will significantly enhance the perception of the public in the organization.

    Supporting Torian after he abused them like this would make the NAACP look like an organization tnat cares only about identity and not policy. There are a lot of policy issues that the NAACP would like to promote, many of which would make a real difference in the lives of not only African-Americans, but all Americans regardless of what racial or ethnic background they have. When Lopez will make himself available at least to listen, if not actively promote some of those at the same time his opponent is a complete no-show who would rather liquor it up with developers than honor his committment speaks a lot here.

    The NAACP has a chance to really bolster the image of the organization with the public by setting aside racial identity in the same way Martin Luther King called on us to do and focus on who demostrates that he cares about the African-American community and their real issues like jobs, transportation, public safety and education. One candidate shows he cares. One candidate shows he doesn’t.

    I hope they really take advantage of this opportunity. I would be so pleased to trumpet that they stood on principle here. I would so much like to say I am very proud of the NAACP.

    The NAACP is a non partisan organization, like the Committee of 100. They do not endorse candidates.
    My neighbors attended the NAACP debate, and were informed that Mr. Torian’s campaign decided against participating in the event due to the fact that one of the panelist was his opponent in the primary. Although very childish and petty for a grown man, this is the excuse given by his campaign. Which brings to mind “What candidate picks his own panel for a debate?”

    My neighbors also said that from the make up of the room it was 90% miniority and 10% caucasion, while almost none of the 40 or so seem to be democrats. Mr. Lopez had such a good receiption that most stayed to talk with the candidate well after it was over.

    For the most part this race may be very close or taken by Mr. Lopez, but it seems miniority republicans would like to see the party embrace the minority candidate, Rafeal Lopez. As most can guess from Fredericks tenure, there are a lot of minority republicans in Prince William County, and if the effort to support Mr. Lopez by the party isn’t stepped up then other republican candidates may feel the reprisal of miniority republicans. Some may be surprised to know that there are a lot of miniorities, especially professional women and military men that are republicans and in Prince William we have a great deal of both.

    It’s been said by Mr. Torian himself, in the pulpit, he knows that a good deal of his congregation do not support the ideal of him running for a public office. So once he put aside all religious convictions and took an affirmative position on civil unions between gays and Roe vs. Wade this really let the religious sector know what his position is regarding his religious calling. Mr. Torian’s actions have clearly made his position known regarding his faith and his congregation. So blowing off an NAACP debate should come as no surprise to anyone, when he has basicly blown off his faith and church for the sake of a political office!

    NAACP….”non-partisan…” HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA !!!!

    Try, organization built on racial extortion and a de facto branch of the Democratic Party.

    The NAACP was founded by Jewish businessmen who hoped to groom a reliable cadre of business customers among the “Negro” community of those days. As soon as the leadership was passed from the Jewish Men to the “Negroes”, the course of the organization took a sharp turn to the left and towards the use of racial extortion as a fund raising tool.

    No credible politician should appear at ANY function with the NAACP. They are nothing but a race-based group whose purpose is to fatten the wallets of their leaders.

    Ultimately the NAACP is a racist organization and politicians should not be attending any of their events. It sets the wrong tone imo. I surely wouldn’t want anything to do with an organization called The National Association for the Advancement of White People. I don’t see any difference here either.
