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.
They can say that: they’re black.
To paraphrase: 2010 NBPP = 1923 SA?
Zulu. Shabazz. How dat Jackson git in there?
I think in the end, that they are too gutless to do what they are threatening to do. They don’t have the ability to sustain successfully any actual genocidal campaign. It wouldn’t be just whites firing back, it would also be Asians and Hispanics and Indians. Three groups other than just white. Blacks if they do attack, would be surrounded and shot and tortured.
I remember a FReeper mentioning that Hispanic gangs are killing off blacks and Asian triads/tongs went after them with a vengeance some time ago, with the tacit approval of the police departments. If they did start shooting at whites, all whites, Hispanics and Asians and Indians would of course join whites in fighting back. Other than what I know of as a natural cultural disdain of blacks, Asians have a history of being harassed by blacks, so they wouldn’t support these delusions of black grandeur.
There is no race in this country that would want or put up with a bunch of brainless militants telling them how to live their lives and work themselves to death for a spoiled minority of thirteen percent.
The NBPP is a joke alone, but team them up with SEIU and Acorn, and Houston, we have a problem.”
You’re joking, right? The Panthers hook up with the unions? That’s a laugh. I’ve known lots of union guys and they’re some of the biggest racists in America. Never happen. They’d lynch each other.
The Panthers and unions joining up to create an American fascist SA? HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!
The Black Pampers are all mouth.
What happens if your concealed weapon becomes un concealed. Guess what? you get arrested, you get your CCW revoked and possibly your firearm taken away, never to be seen again.
Is it worth the risk when there are other methods to insure that no-one interfers with your God given right to vote? Remember, everyone is looking at gun owners to screw up. The Upper ranks of law enforcment is just looking to make a example out of a CCW carrier.
I am sure that poor man who got shot at COSTCO felt the same way,up til the moment a couple of trigger happy cops stopped his clock.
I am willing to die for my right to bear arms... are you? Or do you want to sunuffle at the feet of the libs?
I am willing....but I will not throw my life away needlessly.
If you want to, hey who is stopping you. put yourself in situations that can end badly.I dont really care.
Why are Blacks obsessed with slavery in the US which is a 133 year old story?
