Posted on 07/11/2010 4:29:53 PM PDT by IbJensen
The New Black Panther Party has been a controversial subject for a number of reasons. On Election Day 2008, Black Panther member King Samir Shabazz and national chairman Malik Zulu Shabazz were caught on video bearing billyclubs outside of a Philadelphia polling center. An investigation was launched and charges of voter intimidation were made, but the Department of Justice, under the leadership of Eric Holder, elected to dismiss the case.
In addition to charges of voter intimidation, King Samir Shabazz, was also caught on video saying: I hate white people. All of them. Every last iota of a cracker. I hate them. Standing on South Street in Philadelphia, Shabazz continued, We didnt come out here to play today. Theres too much serious business going on in the black community to be out here sliding through South Street with white dirty cracker whores on our arm. And we call ourselves black men. He then targeted an interracial couple happening by on the street: What the hell is wrong with you man with a white girl on your damned arm.
And he shouted, You want freedom? Youre going to have to kill some crackers. You going to have to kill some of their babies!
Given the evidence mounting against members of the New Black Panthers, one wonders what is so controversial about the group. Clear-cut video evidence of voter intimidation as well as provocation of violence against white Americans exists, with very little room for interpretation. Wherein, then, lies the controversy?
Likewise, the New Black Panther Party continues to incriminate itself under interrogation. Tommy Christopher of the liberal Mediaite.com interviewed Malik Zulu Shabazz and asked him to explain the violent remarks made by King Samir against whites. Shabazzs response focused on King Samirs reprimanding of the black man with a white woman and ultimately ignored Samirs calls to kill white babies.
Or perhaps when Shabazz said, We dont believe in telegraphing what we may or may not do, he was addressing Samirs provocation of murder against white Americans and their offspring. However, when specifically asked if Shabazz believes in killing white babies, he hesitated before responding, Not in that context. He added that he would rather focus on the police than innocuous white babies.
Christopher was noticeably disturbed by Shabazzs unwillingness to outwardly renounce violence against white Americans, but Shabazz defended his assertions by remarking that he supports self-defense.
In a very different kind of interview, on July 7, Russia Today did a feature focusing on the New Black Panther Party. However, instead of discussing the evidence of criminal activities produced against the Party, the host addressed the attack mounted by Fox News against the New Black Panther Party:
In her introduction, the host asked, Fox News attacking the Black Panthers? She went on to state that the voter intimidation charges against the New Black Panthers was alleged, despite incriminating video evidence.
Why is Fox obsessed with the two-year old story? questioned the host. (Perhaps because justice has yet to be served, and a former Justice Department official is publically accusing the DOJ of playing racial politics. Just a guess.)
Appearing as a guest on Russia Today was Malik Sulu Shabazz, who did not have to defend his Party, but rather discussed Fox News motives in targeting his militant group. Shabazz contends that the so-called voter intimidation charges are simply a tool of the Republican Party. He added that the allegations are being made because of the upcoming elections, and that the GOP is at war with Obama and the Justice Department.
During the discussion, video clips of Glenn Beck, Bill O Reilly, Martha McCallem, and Megyn Kelly, all of whom were addressing the crimes committed by members of the New Black Panther Party, subtly played in the background. Shabazz asserts that the New Black Panthers are being painted as extremists and claims that Fox News does not want the truth to come out because they are serving their own political purpose.
Strangely enough, the host addressed intense graphics produced by the Fox News channel against the Black Panthers, but did not once ask Shabazz to explain or justify the behavior captured on video.
Instead, Shabazz pontificated that Fox News launched the attack on his Party as part of right-wing paranoia and playing on unfounded racial fears. Fox News should be ashamed of themselves.
Shabazz accused the Civil Rights Commission of picking and choosing the cases in which they investigate, contending that the same commission takes no interest in civil rights violations against the black community.
When asked what Fox News would gain by inciting racial tensions, Shabazz argued that in stirring up racial fears, Fox News is stirring up the Tea Parties the anti-Obama vote stirring up fears against Black Americans and the kind of volatile dynamic that they desire in the election season.
The host added that Fox News is being called the number one cable news channel in America, as if it is an ungrounded claim. She then asked who Shabazz believes comprises Fox News audience. Unsurprisingly, the answer included whites, Republicans, Confederates, hard Right-Wingers, racist organizations, and some Independents.
Despite Shabazzs highly researched response to the hosts loaded question, a 2008 Pew poll shows that the Fox News audience breaks down as follows: 39 percent Republican, 33 percent Democratic, and 22 percent Independent.
Shabazz closed his interview by reiterating his intentions to engage in a war with the Tea Parties, as well as with Glenn Beck. Referring to the August 28th Restoring Honor rally planned by Glenn Beck, Shabazz said, Well see Glenn Beck
at the National monument
since he is attacking us nightly and he wont talk to us
well see him at the National Mall. Later Beck reacted to Shabazzs remarks on the OReilly Factor: Sounds like a threat.
Solution: impeach Obama, fire Holder and all the circus animals that surround the illegally obtained presidency!
What is the MSM saying about all this? (I don’t own a TV)
November will be interesting. Expect violence to break out at the polls. The thought that they will loose what they gained will be too much to take.
I’m proud to be a “white cracker”. Hahahahaha.
agreed,, I will be carrying..... but no one will know.
You haven't missed a thing.
Me, too. Anybody trying to block my entrance to the polls had better have a Kevlar skull.
---At Al Sharpton's "Redeem the Dream" rally in Washington, D.C in 2000, Shabazz delivered his "I Have a Black Dream" speech, during which he called for a race war in America: "The only solution any time there is a funeral in the black community is a funeral in the police community." He has also told black audiences that white people continue to "get joy out of either physically hanging you, or they get joy out of mentally and politically hanging you."
--He has also been an outspoken supporter of convicted cop-killers Mumia Abu Jamal and Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin. Regarding crime and punishment, Shabazz has also called for all black inmates serving time in America's prisons to be released because none of them could have received a fair trial in racist America.
--Following Hurricane Katrina Shabazz visited New Orleans on a number of occasions and told black residents that police snipers were working to provoke them to do things to justify "opening fire on groups of black males randomly and indiscriminately... This is more of a racist occupation of subjugation rather than a relief effort."
--Shabazz's view of history seems to be one focused on race divisions. He believes George Washington to be little more than a slave owner who "raped black women," and Thomas Jefferson, "Ol' Jefferson... old wooden-teeth-wearin', wig-wearin' Thomas Jefferson, nothin' but a slave master, a slave owner an indian killer."
--Shabazz is openly anti-semitic and believes Israel had prior knowledge of the attacks of 9/11, warning only Jews in advance. At a 2002 rally in DC, he yelled, "Kill every g**damn Zionist in Israel! G**damn little babies, g**damn old ladies! Blow up Zionist supermarkets!" He's also said, "I say to all Jewish people and all white people: stop pushing your holocaust down my throat, when the black holocaust is the worst holocaust humanity has ever seen." A few months later he said, "We will never bow down to the white, Jewish Zionist onslaught."
--It seems Shabazz doesn't believe in race relations: "The perfect world for us [blacks] would be... a nation of our own... It seems almost impossible to achieve real justice within the confines of white racist America."
--One thing Obama and Shabazz may also have in common is their disdain for Fox News. During an appearance on Fox's O'Reilly Factor guest-hosted by conservative Michelle Malkin , Shabazz called Malkin a "political prostitute" and condemned her for being a mouthpiece for "male chauvinist racist Bill OReilly. You should be ashamed of yourself for defending and being a spokesman for Bill OReilly." He has also claimed Fox News is part of a Zionist media complex whose main focus is defaming African Americans and the NBPP.
--Shabazz was also invited to speak at a rally in Toronto, Ontario. But upon his arrival at the Toronto airport, Canadian officials told him he was not permitted to enter the country because of "past rhetoric" that violated a number of Canadian hate crime laws. Shabazz boarded a plane back to New York and then tried to gain entry to Canada by car, but was again turned away by agents at the border. Apparently Canadians holds their nation's guests to higher standards than the White House does...
--When the rally in Toronto was called-off, Shabazz blamed Jewish groups, saying Canada was following Jewish rules and is a country "run from Israel."
Wow! These current Black Panther folks are just way too crazy to classify! I have never heard such language, whether in a campaign or after - just way too violent.
I really can’t believe that it is coming to this - and our justice department is allowing it! If this kind of attitude prevails, we are certain to become revolutionary in result.
I am sure of that. It will probably surprise us all.
Expect violence to break out at the polls.
I doubt that. Unless it's like a shoe sale in a women's department store, with EVERYONE rushing to vote for ANYONE BUT OBAMA.
I would only expect violence were there to be no election in November.
Look for the shabazz boys to show up on the ossama bin obammy presidential security detail.
He does not need their help with that one,, seems the majority of the black population do that well enough.
I am a very well armed proud cracker.
Hmmmm,, had two black guys with clubs showed up at my voting place last election,, there would have been one or two "perforated" brothers on the ground! In my state,, all I need is to fear for my life. Bang goes the .40'd.
