Skip to comments.New Black Panther Malik Shabazz: Obama Evoked Tenets of Black Liberation Theology in Selma
Posted on 10/03/2011 3:36:47 PM PDT by Nachum
Today, Andrew Breitbart published some photographs of an event in March 2007 where Senator and candidate Barack Obama shared a stage with Malik Shabazz of the New Black Panther Party.
It was not, as the mainstream media wants to believe, a mere coincidence. Certainly not to Malik Shabazz himself.
It may be difficult to appreciate now, but at the time of that event, Senator Obama was still considered a long shot for the White House. Hillary Clinton was still ahead in the polls, and had already secured endorsements from civil rights icons like Rep. John Lewis (D-GA).
Meanwhile, Obamas support among black Americans was weak. Just a few weeks before the event with the Panthers, Steve Kroft of CBSs 60 Minutes had noted that some black voters were openly questioning Obamas racial authenticity saying, There are African-Americans who dont think that youre black enough, who dont think that you have had the required experience. Obama smiled at such dismissals, but it was clear he had work to do.
Obamas trip to Selma was obviously intended as a solution to the problem. There, he was able to stake a claim to the mantle of the civil rights movement by participating in the annual remembrance of the famous 65 march with Rep. Lewis.
Dont tell me I dont have a claim on Selma, Alabama, Obama told the audience inside the Brown Chapel A.M.E. church.

The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
So the racist obuma gave a seig heil salute to the black KKK. What’s so hard to believe about that? At least the black version of Julius Streicher, Jeremiah Wright, didn’t bless the event, or did he?
I like what Glenn Beck said on his first day of his own network; I’ll paraphrase: The difference between being on a network and having my own show is this: The President is a Marxist.
We’re headed to a violent revolution if Obama’s reign continues.
something happened back here in Selma, Alabama. Something happened in Birmingham that sent out what Bobby Kennedy called, Ripples of hope all around the world. Something happened when a bunch of women decided they were going to walk instead of ride the bus after a long day of doing somebody else's laundry, looking after somebody else's children. When men who had PhDs decided that's enough and were going to stand up for our dignity. That sent a shout across oceans so that my grandfather began to imagine something different for his son. His son, who grew up herding goats in a small village in Africa could suddenly set his sights a little higher and believe that maybe a black man in this world had a chance.- Barack Obama - March 2007
What happened in Selma, Alabama and Birmingham also stirred the conscience of the nation. It worried folks in the White House who said, You know, we're battling Communism. How are we going to win hearts and minds all across the world? If right here in our own country, John, we're not observing the ideals set fort in our Constitution, we might be accused of being hypocrites. So the Kennedys decided we're going to do an air lift. We're going to go to Africa and start bringing young Africans over to this country and give them scholarships to study so they can learn what a wonderful country America is.
This young man named Barack Obama got one of those tickets and came over to this country. He met this woman whose great great-great-great-grandfather had owned slaves; but she had a good idea there was some craziness going on because they looked at each other and they decided that we know that the world as it has been it might not be possible for us to get together and have a child. There was something stirring across the country because of what happened in Selma, Alabama, because some folks are willing to march across a bridge. So they got together and Barack Obama Jr. was born. So don't tell me I don't have a claim on Selma, Alabama. Don't tell me Im not coming home to Selma, Alabama.
Im here because somebody marched. Im here because you all sacrificed for me. I stand on the shoulders of giants. I thank the Moses generation; but we've got to remember, now, that Joshua still had a job to do. As great as Moses was, despite all that he did, leading a people out of bondage, he didn't cross over the river to see the Promised Land. God told him your job is done. You'll see it. You'll be at the mountain top and you can see what Ive promised. What Ive promised to Abraham and Isaac and Jacob. You will see that Ive fulfilled that promise but you won't go there.

The Selma to Montgomery marches were three marches in 1965 that marked the political and emotional peak of the American Civil Rights Movement.
They were the culmination of the voting rights movement in Selma, Alabama, launched by Amelia Boynton and her husband. Boynton brought many prominent leaders of the American Civil Rights Movement to Selma, including James Bevel, who initiated and organized the march; Martin Luther King, Jr.; and Hosea Williams.
The first march took place on March 7, 1965 "Bloody Sunday" when 600 civil rights marchers were attacked by state and local police with billy clubs and tear gas. The second march took place on March 9. Only the third march, which began on March 21 and lasted five days, made it to Montgomery, 54 miles (87 km) away.
---- Mr. Obama, YOU LIE.

Union goons will riot even if he loses.
Look at the past 10 years of thugary every election cycle. Slashing tires. Throwing cinderblocks through windows. Cutting power to campaign offices on election day.
The question is, which city will they burn first.
I'm starting to think Beck's right on this one...
“Were headed to a violent revolution if Obamas reign continues.”
I can understand that. I lost another friend tonight, and I’m a bit sad.
Damn! I hate losing friends.
Semper fi, buddy.
Condolences to you,FRiend. I lost a good friend shortly after 9-11; you just don’t forget them.
These pics better show up in the general election campaign ads by our stupid party.
Thanks for the kind words. Appreciate that.
There’s no tablet to write your last words. It’s the last expiration of your breathe. That’s it.
Semper fi, Friend.
And what 'ideals" would those be?
