NAACP chairman emeritus: Tea party is the Taliban of American politics

Former NAACP Chairman Julian Bond states on MSNBC that the targeting of Tea Party Groups by the IRS is legitimate, and compares the Tea Party to the Taliban. Thank you to Washington Free Beacon for transcript:

BOND: I hope not. I hope they don’t get any more air. They are the Taliban wing of american politics. We all ought to be a little worried about them.

ROBERTS: Sir, do you think that’s a little harsh, calling them the Taliban wing of American politics?

BOND: Not at all. The truth may hurt, but it’s the truth.
