Little did TooManyAborted.com founder Ryan Bomberger know just how much the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People would disdain his satirical but accurate edit of its acronym, NAACP. Click to enlarge…
On January 16, Ryan, pictured right, wrote a scathing piece entitled, “NAACP: National Association for the Abortion of Colored People,” published at LifeNews.com, in conjunction with the NAACP’s upcoming 44th Annual Image Awards.
In response, NAACP attorneys Gordon Feinblatt, LLC, zipped off a letter to both Ryan and Steven Ertelt of Life News, threatening to sue both for copyright infringement, including punitive damages, unless they cease and desist within seven days.
Ryan stated he had been using the term, “National Association for the Abortion of Colored People,” since 2011 and had the legal right to do so under “fair use” trademark law, which allows “parodying, criticizing, and/or commenting upon the defendant and its services.”
Ryan’s lawsuit added that NAACP attorneys certainly knew about “fair use” law and were just trying to frighten him. Therefore, Ryan requested that the court award him “relief as may be just and proper.” I hope the court takes a big dent out of bully NAACP’s pocketbook.
In his press statement announcing NAACP’ threat Ryan doubled down by including a graphic reiterating the disputed title. Click to enlarge…
ADF Senior Counsel Steven Aden gave me this statement via email:
Every American should know the truth that abortion has decimated the African-American community. Ryan Bomberger and the Radiance Foundation are performing a public service by exposing the carnage being carried out by Planned Parenthood and its abortion industry comrades.
If the targeting of inner city communities by Big Abortion, leading to death of 16 million black babies isn’t something we can all unite against, what can bring us together? The fact that the NAACP would threaten Ryan rather than coming along side of him to end this undercover genocide shows that politics trumps saving lives and saving communities for these would-be censors.
NAACP’s intimidation tactics did not stop here.
On January 31 the National Black ProLife Coalition announced the NAACP had successfully pressured Twitter to suspend its @NAACP-WATCHDOGS account. The group’s last tweet was:
Racist elitists no longer need the Ku Klux Klan to control blacks; they have Planned Parenthood. And Planned Parenthood has the NAACP on a leash.
Five minutes later Twitter suspended the account.
