Skip to comments.GOP, Holder battle over New Black Panthers
Posted on 07/13/2009 4:02:53 AM PDT by Scanian
Key House Republicans are charging Attorney General Eric Holder of playing politics at the Justice Department.
Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) said Holder has ignored at least three letters sent over the past month from Republicans demanding to know why Justice dismissed charges of voter intimidation filed against two members of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense (NBPP).
NBPP National Chairman Milik Zulu Shabazz and party member Jerry Jackson both faces charges for violating the Voting Rights Act for engaging in coercion, threats and intimidation and attempted coercion, threats, and intimidation of voters and those aiding voters at a Philadelphia polling station on November 4th, 2008.
Charges against the Black Panthers were originally filed when President George W. Bush was in power.
A spokeswoman for Justice said facts did not back up the charges, and that career officials at Justice, not political appointees, decided to drop the charges.
Following a thorough review, a career attorney in the Civil Rights Division determined that the facts and the law did not support pursuing the claims against three of the defendants, spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler said. As a result, the Department dismissed those claims.
Committee sources said they expected Justice to send a letter on Monday to Wolf and other members, and to brief Republicans on why the charges were dropped.
Holder let stand one of the four original charges though. The leader of the black nationalist groups Philadelphia chapter, Minister King Samir Shabazz, is charged with brandishing a deadly weapon, a nightstick, outside of the polls.

Malik Zulu Shabazz, chairman of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense (NBPP):
"We are happy today to be standing side by side with the Nation of Islam. We believe, like the Nation of Islam and the Honorable Elijah Muhammad believe, in a nation of our own. We believe in a Black first philosophy and a Black Liberation Theology. We dont worry about the criticism. We love all of those who labored in the Panther Party from the 60s. Many are with us today."
Although it [The New Black Panther Party] says it sees capitalism as the fundamental problem with the world and revolution as the solution, the new party does not draw its influences from Marxism or Maoism as the original party did. Instead, in a carefully-worded, roundabout form of ethnic nationalism, they say that Marx based his ideology and teachings on indigenous African cultures, and that the NBPP therefore need not look to Marxism or Maoism as a basis for their program, but can look to ideologies that stem directly from those African origins.

From the article: REVOLUTIONARY HEROES
"On May 1st, May Day , the day of the gigantic Free Huey rally, two of Alioto's top executioners vamped on the brothers from the Brown Community who were attending to their own affairs. These brothers, who are endowed with the revolutionary spirit of the Black Panther Party defended themselves from the racist pig gestapo.
Pig Joseph Brodnik received his just reward with a big hole in the chest. Pig Paul McGoran got his in the mouth which was not quite enough to off him.
The revolutionary brothers escaped the huge swarm of pigs with dogs, mace, tanks and helicopters, proving once again that "the spirit of the people is greater than the man's technology."
To these brothers the revolutionary people of racist America want to say, by your revolutionary deed you are heroes, and that you are always welcome to our camp."

"Their founding document [the Weather Underground's] called for the establishment of a "white fighting force" to be allied with the "Black Liberation Movement" and other "anti-colonial" movements to achieve "the destruction of US imperialism and the achievement of a classless world: world communism."..."-Berger, Dan (2006).

For all you'll ever need or want to know about
Wright's Marxist "Black Liberation Theology",
see my FR Home page:
Once again, "race" trumps "law," but only in one direction ...
Eric Holder, Bill Clinton, Wright's 'Black Liberation' "church", and the pardons of 16 members of the Puerto Rican Marxist terrorist group FALN:(Wright's Marxist BLT 'church' (Obama's 'church' for 20+ years) advocated for FALN terrorists)
"Fraunces Tavern is a restaurant and museum in lower Manhattan, New York City. It was built on the site of a former building which played a significant role in pre-Revolutionary activities, and in which, on 4 December 1783, General George Washington bade farewell to his officers at the end of the Revolution, before returning to his home, Mount Vernon."
"During the 1970s and 1980s, FALN members set off at least 138 bombs in five major U.S. Cities. Six Americans were killed in those attacks. One of those bombings, in January 1975, was at the historic Fraunces Tavern in lower Manhattan while patrons were at lunch. The explosion killed four and injured more than 50."
"Between 1974 and 1985 the FALN (Puerto Rican Armed Forces of National Liberation) organized 120 terrorist bombings in the United States. Many Americans were killed in those bombings, and many more were crippled. In 1983, another Puerto Rican terrorist group known as the Macheteros, attacked and robbed a Wells Fargo armored car in Connecticut. The Macheteros intended to use the money to finance a terrorist campaign against the United States. Working under the cover of Puerto Rican nationalism and claiming to act on behalf of the 'oppressed people of Puerto Rico,' the FALN and the Macheteros are nothing but Communist revolutionaries. Both groups were organized by Fidel Castro's secret police. The ultimate goal of the FALN and the Macheteros is the creation of an independent Marxist-Leninist dictatorship on the island of Puerto Rico."
"Heres the vid of billy club-wielding 'security' guards at the 1221 Fairmount Ave. polling place in Philly from Election Journal. Just as I suspected, these guys look like NBPP [New Black Panther Party] from the emblem on one of the 'guards' jackets.
Maybe this is what Barack Obama was talking about when he proposed a Civilian Security Force."
As a result, he was punished with not being able to brandish a weapon within 100 ft. of a polling station in Philadelphia until after the 2012 elections.
Punished? So this seems to imply that Shabazz can brandish a weapon within 100ft. of a polling station starting with local elections in 2013. What a joke.
Then the Dem congressman, Brady, ensures us that he went down to the polling station on Election Day and that:
They weren¹t intimidating anybody, they didn¹t try to suppress any votes.
Uh, there's a video of the guy shaking a night stick at white voters. And the "Justice" Department drops this? Criminals.
Gotta love this quote though:
This guy (Attorney General Eric) Holder is a jerk, Wolf told the Hill on Thursday out of frustration that the AG had rebuffed each request for answers.
It has much more to do with the fact that they are proponents of communist "Liberation" theology like Wright, Ayers, Dohrn, Farrakhan, the original Black Panthers, the Black Liberation Army (Brinks murders), the Symbionese Liberation Army (Patty Hearst), the Puerto Rican communist terrorist group, FALN, etc, etc.
holder is a racist/marxist soldier of evil.
Another reason to take pepper spray to the voting booth.

Indeed. This is the one I carry: http://www.kimberamerica.com/shop/product.php?xProd=2
I’m afraid you are correct. 0bama intends his civilian security force to be black thugs and warlords.
Now if a couple white guys were at a polling location with billy clubs...
“As a result, he was punished with not being able to brandish a weapon within 100 ft. of a polling station in Philadelphia until after the 2012 elections.”
WTH? No-one is allowed to brandish a weapon within 100 ft. of a polling place. it’s the law....lol. I guess in Holder’s world view the guy will be able to brandish a weapon AFTER the 2012 elections?
Because democrat justice means “just us”.
These stupid white radicals don’t get it that if the BP get into power, they’ll be the first ones shot. Or last, but they will be on the list.
He's worse than that.
Wanna bet if that had been two Sheriff's Deputies standing there that the Justice Department would have been all over this...?
Holder thinks this is OK to have these two Black Panther thugs outside this polling place because we are a "nation of cowards".
Never bring a billy club to a gun fight.
If given a nation - HOW would they survive?
Most “black nations” are starving or slaughtering one another.
Every African and Caribbean nation populated primarily by blacks has slipped further down the toilet into chaos since “liberation”....
The morons who voted for black candidates in essence voted for their own and their children's ruin...
Anyone wishing to argue the point - must FIRST identify a majority black city, state or nation that has met or exceeded the standard of living, productivity, culture and self sufficiency of their non-black examples.
agree....it'll end up like this....
...only in a vacuum or Star Trek NG episode,
it'll only succeeds in a PC-ism World.
therefore , the Liberals will declare it
