I don't know if this is the sum total of all the video evidence in the black panther voter intimidation case. The video by itself is interesting to me. You've got this poll worker who is so "intimidated", but he's able to carry on a conversation with the Panther dimwit and film him with his cell phone camera. You've also got white and black people coming in and out of the polling place and they don't seem to be paying much attention to the Panthers at all. As evidence of how the Panthers struck fear into the hearts of voters, it doesn't seem to hold up.
Full blown racial fear mongering mania has broken out on the left and right and it really concerns me. I'll have more to say on that shortly. But I guess my biggest reaction here is to the so called New Black Panthers themselves. It would be much more constructive to prosecute them for being a bunch of lazy, stupid, loser black men. Do I sound harsh? Not if you read what passes for the New Black Panther manifesto as laid out in their 10 Point Plan. I threw up in my mouth a little as I read it. AG Holder has allowed the Obama administration to become associated with a bunch of dimwits who advocate, with a straight face, some of the following:
We want full employment for our people and we demand the dignity to do for ourselves what we have begged the white man to do for us. We believe that since the white man has kept us deaf, dumb and blind, and used every dirty trick in the book to stand in the way of our freedom and independence, that we should be gainfully employed until such time we can employ and provide for ourselves
We believe our people should be exempt from ALL TAXATION as long as we are deprived of equal justice under the laws of the land and the overdue reparations debt remains unpaid. We will accept payment in fertile and mine rally rich land, precious metals, industry, commerce and currency.
We want all Black Men and Black Women to be exempt from military service.
We [therefore] believe that all Black People should unite and form an African United Front and arm ourselves for self-defense.
We want freedom for all Black Men and Black Women held in international, military, federal, state, county, city jails and prisons. We believe that all Black People and people of color should be released from the many jails and prisons because they have not received a fair and impartial trial. Released means released to the lawful authorities of the Black Nation.
We want land, bread, housing, education, clothing, justice and peace. And, as our political objective, we want NATIONAL LIBERATION in a separate state or territory of our own, here or elsewhere, a liberated zone (New Africa or Africa), and a plebiscite to be held throughout the BLACK NATION in which only we will be allowed to participate for the purposes of determining our will and DIVINE destiny as a people.
Nice going Eric. Holy Mother of God, I'm not even going to bother to point out all of the horrific idiocy on display in the above. This is an organization of losers led by losers. Someone at DOJ should have brought charges of crimes against humanity's intelligence, not voter intimidation. These guys are fringe losers so far out from the edge of the black mainstream they are hovering in mid air. Before this case, I had never heard of these morons. Now, thanks to the DOJ and the hysterical racial fear mongering of the right, we'll probably be hearing from this embarrassment to righteous black men everywhere until we are nauseous.
King Samir Shabazz is the leader of the Philadelphia chapter of the NBP, starring in the video above and in full Negro stupidity mode below. The national head of the NBP is a brother by the name of Malik Zulu Shabazz, I kid you not, thats the name this brother picked to replace his "slave name" of Paris Lewis. Zulu? Really? He's a graduate of Howard which just gives me more heartburn that such a fine institution has to be associated with this bunch of victimhood promoters. If they are smart, they will distance themselves from him quickly.
As an aside, what is with the popularity of Shabazz as a slave name replacement with this crowd anyway? Has Malcom X popularized the name so much that all these militant pretenders keep copying it? No originality. These guys are a complete embarrassment. Militants? Activists? Nope. More like cheesy entertainment, the kind you're embarrassed to tell people you even watch. The politics of the deeply stupid.
