Posted on 08/27/2010 2:14:02 PM PDT by La Lydia
...Shabazz has confirmed to Mediaite that neither he, nor the New Black Panther Party, will be at Becks rally tomorrow. Shabazz declined to elaborate, but given his prior statements, it is likely that the group decided to follow the lead of other Beck critics, who have chosen to focus their energies on their own projects, rather than counter-protest Beck.
Al Sharptons National Action Network will hold a Reclaim the Dream Rally and March tomorrow that will be attended by Martin Luther King III, NAACP President Ben Jealous, and liberal MSNBC host Ed Schultz.
For those with a taste for a more direct rebuke of Becks rally, Celebrate the Dream might be the ticket:
On the 47th anniversary of Kings historic proclamation, far-right fearmonger Glenn Beck will hold a self-serving press event on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Hes trying to co-opt Kings Dream, with a Nightmare message to his throng of followers.
Dont let this buffoon diminish a day that belongs to all Americans. Join us to Celebrate the Dream and Reject the Nightmare.
The group plans to unveil a 4-story sculpture memorializing Kings speech, followed by a press conference on the national mall...
Sounds like somebody done filled them there black pampers.
I think they’re realizing the days of intimidating people are over. These cowards fear for their own safety now, as they should. They’re troublemakers and they best stay away.
Well, I wonder got into them.—————————
Thugs and bullies always back off under circumstances like this.
300,000 vs. maybe 2000, most likely, cowards won’t protest unless they have the numbers.
Now that IS odd! I figured they be out there SHOOTING Beck and his supporters. After all, it’s not as though any Black Panthers would be CHARGED with a crime!!!
Hmm,Schultz who earlier this month was told he would be fired if he ever again threatened to burn down the MSNBC studio.
By Chris Ariens on Aug 26, 2010 08:49 AMAn apparent incident in the middle of MSNBC's 30 Rock newsroom earlier this month is coming to light today.
The NYPost reports MSNBC's 6pmET host Ed Schultz, irate over not being included in election night promos, yelled, "I'm going to torch this [bleep]ing place."
As astonished MSNBC staff members fell silent, Schultz glared around the room and yelled, "[Bleep]ers!" Fuming Schultz was immediately dragged in for a meeting with NBC News President Steve Capus and MSNBC President Phil Griffin following his Aug. 12 meltdown.
Our source added, "Schultz was told: 'If you do that again, you are fired.' He broke down crying."
Working in the newsroom at NBC must be a rung of HELL!
That’s a wise decision on the part of this racist organization.
The truth is the “New” Black Panther Party is a gang of punks.
Unable to panhandle enough for bus fare, I suppose.
And you can’t ride Amtrak on food stamps.
Oh my, Ed Schultz is worse than the black pampers. Martin Luther King will turn over in his grave.
Shabazz figures that some attending the Beck event will be packing heat, and not give a rat’s patootie about any DC laws.
This is a direct answer to our prayers that Glenn Beck and those attending this event would be kept safe from these evil, godless, racist enemies of America.
Maybe we should just call them the “full black pampers”.
“Amen” to that brother.
I just don’t understand what Schultz and his crowd can say that’s bad about what Beck is doing. They will look like fools.
“Maybe we should just call them the full black pampers.”
Sounds like a plan to me!
That is how I will refer to them from this point on. I think that everyone should do the same.
Boy, you said it! As for us, we better be crazy mad, and watch our back because they are cowards, and cowards can be dangerous. Makes you even wonder why exactly they aren’t going to show up.
A massive Sharpton rally attended by four people.
STILL, we must be vigilant at the polls...we must be there to track those votes all the way to the end.
These thugs will work their BS where they see an opportunity. We must not let our guard down and we must continue to be on the watch...and put these thugs on the defensive. The thugs have taken two steps back. Be on the lookout for that next step forward.
We will be friendly, respectful and above all, leave that mall cleaner than when we arrived.
So, the New Black Pampers are taking a more intelligent course of action than Al Sharpton? Now that there is funny! LOL
Maybe they watched ‘Gran Torino’ and realized there were people there they shouldn’t f**# with?
Does this guy have a fitting name or what? He's jealous of everything the productive people have because the worked for it.
Well perhaps they saw the photos ofthe last DC rally when over a millon showed up and they did not want there 100 people to be in contrast to that?
SHhhhhh. Don't say that word. Willie Green may be listening.
“Makes you even wonder why exactly they arent going to show up.”
They may show up incognito. Or, helll maybe someone knows there’s gonna’ be trouble there tomorrow and doesn’t want them there. These days ANYTHING could happen.
I have a feeling they realized that they would meet exactly the opposite response and decided it wouldn’t help them to oppose it. The best thing the NBPs could encounter is violence because the media would elevate them as victims.
Well, given his recent — multiple — meltdowns threatening violence against people at Fox News, Ed Schultz this close to Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin is a little scary.
Too bad I know some guys who were just hoping the Black Pampers would get out of line. Oh and they carry badges.
” Or, helll maybe someone knows theres gonna be trouble there tomorrow and doesnt want them there.”
You have made my point. It’s weird out there, but regardless it’s the difference between keeping or losing our republic, and we know freedom isn’t free. And then you’ve got Obama salavating for us to react something or other, so he can consider martial law, but I don’t know who would be willing to act as any of his martials. That’s one comforting thought.
I got a feeling the city will be shut down by 11am
Others in attendance:
Ann Ty Marechan
Stay safe and have a good trip.
Some will show up and be the poor victims of made-up racist name calling and spitting from the evil Tea Partiers. The MSM needs something to cover and Chewbacca can talk about it at the next NAACP dinner.
Moved just prior to being Legal (Go Navy!)
Raised my now 31yr old son and we still live in a 98% White rural secluded (tourist area).
That being said when black folks come to our tourist area they are the most well mannered, gracious, kind tourists around.
Only once can I remember “attitude” and it was very restrained.
The son was playing side by side on the penny slots for hours with a young attractive black gal having a great time from time to time her older sister (with the Malcolm X attitude, my age) would come by and give the son a dirty look and ask her sister to “let's Go”.
The younger sister said No were having to much fun and I am winning! (about $15 IIRC) He (the son) is giving me good luck...(more dirty looks, lol, from the Sistah)
Glenn and other civil Americans (off all colors) have nothing to worry about tomorrow.
If any disruptor's show up they will most likely be the dopey 20 something liberal/socialist White Boy/Girl.
LOL Shultz and any other uncivil putz will have thousands if not tens of thousands Americans to get through to even get within’ hollering distance to Beck and guests.
They probably couldn't get a permit for the area they wanted. Shabazz said that on August 28th, Beck and the Tea Party "would meet direct opposition from the Black Panthers, " which means he had plans to show up at the Lincoln Memorial. Either they were denied a permit to assemble, or they chickened out.
C-SPAN will be covering Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally at the Lincoln Memorial this Saturday, with Sarah Palin among those expected to attend. Coverage begins 10amET.
Beck was on the Mall again today (above) taking another walk-through in preparation for Saturday.
