LeDuff to Minister Malik Shabazz: Burn Down Detroit, Are You Out of Your Mind?
MyFoxDetroit ^ | Mar 27, 2012 | Charlie LeDuff

Posted on 03/28/2012 12:42:59 PM PDT by bkopto

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.

SNIP

"Because -- and when I say white supremacy, that's not an assault on my white brothers and sisters -- I'm talking about institutions, power, financiers, bankers, they willfully, skillfully and purposely through subprime lending depopulated and deconstructed Detroit, which leaves us in this dilapidated blight," Shabazz explained.

"Do you agree it's time we did something here?" asked LeDuff.

"We need to do something," Shabazz replied.

"Do you agree it's time to get a reign on our budgetary process here?" LeDuff inquired.

"I agree," said Shabazz.

"Do you agree that the people are suffering because the status quo won't work?" LeDuff further asked.

"This status quo is not working," Shabazz stated.

"So, tell the people what you want them to do," LeDuff said.

"What I want the people to do? I want you to unite -- black, white, blue -- unite, come together, deconstruct this wicked, reprobate-minded society and let's build a new one," Shabazz explained.

"And, don't burn it," said LeDuff.

"Don't burn it down," Shabazz said. "Don't burn the city, but burn evil and injustice and white supremacy, not white people."

Mr Shabass: Sounds like you are describing your DemocRAT plantation owners to a tee. Think about it. If you are able.

Where is the “white supremacy” that he’s complaining about?

If he means “white” (Western, Christian, traditional) CULTURAL supremacy, I’ll concede he has a point. What WORKS WILL rise to the top and be dominant.

Why wouldn’t you want what works best to dominate a society instead of what demonstrably doesn’t work?

Blacks are indicating thay they will fight rather than surrender one of the symbols of their ongoing conquest. Faced with this threat the whites will refuse to take any affirmative steps to manage Detroit.

Where does black supremacy work in Africa, hmm?

The Islamists are in the process of tearing down modern economies in North Africa and sending them backward in time three centuries or so. We can expect to see horrible poverty and starvation there in the forthcoming years.

I don’t know what to expect in Detroit.

Right... had NOTHING to do with decades of socialist mismanagement, along with heavy-handed unionism and rampant corruption... not to mention the blight caused by the riots in 1967. Nahhhhh... nothing to do with THOSE issues.

Mr. Shabass is not capable of logical thought. Nor are many of his ilk. Any attempt to engage in rational discourse is a waste of time. You may as well try to reason with a pack of hungry tigers that they should not eat you.

“Wow, this place looks great!”

And, to re-state what someone stole from me, that I might have stole from someone else to start with -

if they burn down detroit, they might do HUNDREDS of dollars in damages!

I was in Detroit in the late 60's when the MLK riots took place and we had one of our people shot to death.

This was when Nixon rolled over and the brothers saw that force would work.

The racists have been beating that drum for 40+ years.

Burning down Detroit would be like burning charcoal.

No Shabazz... You do not have white flight out of "Detwaa" or institutional "whatever", you have Black Flight, go to a Charter School in the Burbs and see how many of your former citizens depopulated "Detwaa" because it was Corrupt and Dysfunctional, especially the School System. As a former restaurateur said on a WJR quasi exit interview with Paul W. Smith noted, Detroit had a problem with colors, not black or white, they didn't understand the color green.

BTW, my public service gnome in the city told me of this threat weeks ago, it has been on the QT, it is now in the public domain so to speak. Said gnome stands by his theory that Mayor Bing will be named at the Emergency Manager or whatever they are calling it today. That is the Ultimate Checkmate...

It was never really “white flight” so much as it was business flight. Plenty of black businessmen got the hell out too.

My little town’s sole black man says his family lived in Detroit till the riots when his dad sold the bakery and they headed for Jackson where there were still factory jobs.

In the mid-80’s, I had a house near mine where 5 people from Detroit livewd. They had graduated high school & left.

They kidded bout the billboard which read: “The last one out, turn ut the lights”.

This was LONG before the ‘sub-prime’ lending problems.

I have often wondered exactly what percentage of what race got mired into the sub-prime lending.

I would love to know the figures.

That is the path to communism/authoritarianism. You make things as bad as possible while blaming everything on the “enemy” and the solution is always more government control. People are stupid, if you repeat the lie enough many will believe it.
