Obama Camp Rejects New Black Panther Party Endorsement After Removing Web Posting (got caught again)

Barack Obama’s campaign has rejected the support of the New Black Panther Party, after removing an endorsement by the group from its Web site Wednesday.

Obama spokesman Tommy Vietor issued a statement rejecting the Panther backing, and told FOXNews.com: “The page in question has been removed from our campaign Web site. It’s our policy with any content generated by a group that advocates violence.”

The blogosphere was buzzing Wednesday about whether his campaign planned to remove the Panther posting, just one day after the Illinois senator delivered a speech calling for improved race relations in America.

The New Black Panthers, who inherited their name from the Black Panther Party of the 1960s, had the page on the Obama campaign’s public forums. The group’s message said it is backing Obama because he “represents ‘positive change’ for all of America. Obama will stir the ‘Melting Pot’ into a better ‘Molten America.’”

They have no friends listed but I'm sure Obama will be their little secret friend.

Wow, they were not noticed or at least ignored for 2+ months. Yep, the MSM is on top of their jobs. /s

It just gets better and better. It is beginning to look like that Obama has ties with every black extremist group in the country. The ‘Rats are getting nervous and I believe that they are going to abandon Obama’s sinking ship and select Hillary, the voters be damned.

Good morning.

I watched Malik Shabazz on FNC shrug off the removal of the NBP endorsement from Osama Obama’s page as just politics.

It means as little as Osama's speech did.
