Skip to comments.LeDuff to Minister Malik Shabazz: Burn Down Detroit, Are You Out of Your Mind?
Posted on 04/01/2012 8:31:40 AM PDT by NOBO2012
Minister Malik Shabazz made headlines when he made this impassioned remark at a Detroit financial review meeting on Monday: "This is white supremacy, and we will fight you. Before you can take over our city, we will burn it down first." Shabazz is upset that Governor Rick Snyder will appoint an emergency manager to run the city of Detroit if it cannot find a way to restructure the budget.

“...Before you can take over our city, we will burn it down first.”
Give it to them. Let them wallow in it.
Let it completely fall apart and then defend the next place they plan on destroying at all costs. Let ‘em rot in what they created.
The poster child for African-American “leadership”.
If "they" can have a city, can whites have a city, too, or would that be "racism"?
Cut the cord to all the cities in America and we’ll see that Detroit ain’t half bad.
Truth be told, let them burn it down.
That would be the kindest thing they could do to a city that was the murder capital of the US for years, slums, and drug dealers. Or, if they want their city so badly all aide from white people should stop and the black community be made to care for itself. They wouldn’t last long.
‘Holder’s People’ = American’s Palestinians
The poster child for African-American leadership.”
Another race baiting SOB!
Let him burn it. BUT no federal money for rebuilding it once it’s burned. The city of Bridgeport CT was burned in the 60s and it never recovered to this day , despite fed and state money being poured in over the years.
If they burn it down, it will be easier to bring in the bulldozers, level the area, and start over.
What’s the downside? If they destroy Detroit (what’s left of it), we’ll all pony up the money to rebuild it and give them new goodies anyway.
I wonder if this “Minister” Shabazz got his title via mail order?
Reminds me of an old cartoon. Two guys are rolling joints each from their own stashes, and one looks at the other's and says "Hey! Your grass is greener!"
I thought they did that in the '60s.
Burning down Detroit may be the first best solution. It’s a dung heap and should torch rather easily.
To protest white supremacy, he’s threatening to burn down a city blacks have run for forty years.
“Let it completely fall apart and then defend the next place they plan on destroying at all costs. Let em rot in what they created.”
Too late. Camden holds the honor of being the first place. You would think after the first one, they would have learned by now.
I’m reminded of a SimCity scenario where you had 10 years to get crime down in Detroit. I tried everything, adding more police departments, parks and so on, but all it did to me was made me short of cash. I got so ticked off that I just decided to save the nice part of they city, a tiny but still functioning, area. The rest of the city I wrote off. I closed police stations and fire station and bulldozed them to save money, cut roads to a bare minimum, only repaired the roads in the tiny section I saved as well as kept police and fire. I then set fire to the rest of the city, watching out burn out into rubble. It took so long, the 10 years were up. I drove so many people out in those section by doing that, I DID cut the crime rate to a small fraction that it was and I WON the game. I kept going, did some rebuilding at a sensible pace and kept things running well. I think maybe that’s what Detroit needs. I told my father about it, he sometimes games a little too, he said, “I guess the Janet Reno approach does work.” B-) BTW, if it was today, it would be like “The Shabazz Approach.” However, I don’t think Mr. Shabazz has a rebuilding plan after things are reduced to rubble like I had.
Which city do whites get to choose? So many possibilities.
The poster child for liberal Democrat African-American leadership.
Fixed it for you.
You have to mount a credible threat to overthrow the standing federal government with force.
Trash talk isn't enough.
Why bother? The people of Detroit have made it a ghost town and they are bulldozing entire surrounding towns.
That city has been run by the socialist left since 1961. The unions controlled it for a good portion of the time and they got their socialist hacks elected at will.
Detroit aint worth it. Let em burn the dam place. It actually would make the place look better.
Whatever burns down, stays down.
The whole Martin insanity has brought the cockroaches out of the shadows.
No doubt Detroit is a mess but there are many other cities in worse shape as far as debt is concerned. Cities like Chicago, St Louis, and LA are stacking on debt at a far greater rate with no signs of slowing down.
At some point, the piper will need to be paid and we’ll be smelling the smoke from Chicago all the way to east Michigan.
Amen, brother. The first stage is pretty well accomplished, by the way.
Look on the bright side LeDuff - if you burn Detroit down, think of the $ billions in skim-able funds that will come from the State and especially the Feds! You can buy a lot of street muscle with that amount of money!
Burn down Detroit? Promises, promises. If they do I hope they ask for suggestions for other cities to burn down.
But when they burn it down, make them live in it. No Section 8 vouchers moving the criminal element into suburban areas where the tax-paying, productive, law-abiding citizens become easy pickings.
And it’s interesting how once they became the majority in this city it was suddenly “their” city but when whites are a majority, the left has a fit about the lack of “diversity”. Only white areas require this “diversity”, they think.
There.....fixed. Oh......and the irony you point out is breathtaking, is it not?
As predicted, we are watching the death throes of the welfare state.
You assume that if they burn Detroit down, the cockroaches will stay........I would think that they would all flee to nearby functioning communities, reapplying for welfare, and then restart their magic in their new home.
“I wonder if this Minister Shabazz got his title via mail order?”
My guess is that Minister Shabazz was appointed by Minister Louis Farrakhan Muhammad, Sr.
Four words: New Orleans......"chocolate city".
All aide from what they call “white devils” should stop. They should not be allowed to move into white communities.
Detroit used to be beautiful but all it is now is one giant crime ridden slum. The blacks cannot survive without aide from whites. What surprises me is that the hard working black families who take care of what they have are not pitching a fit about the blacks who do not want to work for what they have.
They are biting the hand that has been feeding them for years.
Better fence it in, before you let ‘em burn it. All those moslem rats will just scurry out to a town near you.
The blame “white flight” but plenty of black businessmen fled after the riots.
My little town’s only black resident says his father closed up shop in 67 and moved the family to Jackson when there were still factory jobs there.
The productive black families don’t complain, because they have face the parasites on their own without the protection of the authorities.
One must first have a mind before one can be out of it.
What he is is Evil.
Martin OBAMA insanity has brought the cockroaches out of the shadows.
“Better fence it in...”
“Escape From Detroit”
It looks like the Detroit experiment is near conclusion. the blacks got their town, ran it , ran it into the ground and now all that is left is interpretation of what really happened and why. You would think the black people might grasp the reasons and deal with them.
Makes me think of the Obama dynasty, excepting, global consequences are far greater.
WHooaaa! Watch the video. They don’t want to burn that down?
LOL. No that would be a real tragedy.
Join the TEA party ???
We are almost there with Holder and his thug DOJ...
Exactly. If whites are the problem, then stay away from whites and everything to do with them, including money and expertise. Build a city comparable to Detroit in its heyday from the ground up.
