New Black Panthers: “We Don’t Believe in Telegraphing What We May or May Not Do”
posted at 3:47 pm on July 9, 2010 by Howard Portnoy
“The New Black Panther Party,” the chairman said, “does not believe in going out in the streets and berating black people… We don’t believe in telegraphing what we may or may not do.” [Emphasis added] Remarkably, his only criticisms were that Samir Shabazz dressed down fellow blacks and may have tipped the organization’s hand in terms of its insidious future plans.
In the same interview Malik Shabazz had some choice words for TV host Glenn Beck and clarified that “crackers” are not the only problems in American society that blacks need to contend with, intimating that a Zionist conspiracy is behind efforts to keep blacks in their place. He referred to Beck as “sneaky little devil” and “neo-racist” who should not be allowed to speak in public.
As to Malik Shabazz’s comments about what the New Black Panthers “may or may not do,” one assumes that the Justice Department will now be keeping a watchful eye trained on this organization. One also expects that President Obama, who has so far been silent regarding the hate-filled rant of King Samir Shabazz, will make a statement in which, at the very least, he will acknowledge that the Black Panther “acted stupidly.” Then again, the man who never heard his racist preacher speak ill of America or Jews in the 20 years during which he sat in the church’s pews, may conveniently never hear about this incident either.
