New Black Panthers Inflame Michael Brown Incident In Missouri

The leaders of the New Black Panther Party (NBPP), the largest organized anti-Semitic and racist Black militant group in America, traveled to Ferguson, Missouri, inflaming the already tense situation following the fatal shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown by police.black-panther-nzinga-shabazz-ferguson-missouri

The NBPP’s leadership, including Chairman Hashim Nzinga, Chief of Staff Chawn Kweli, and former Chairman Malik Zulu Shabazz arrived in Ferguson earlier this week and held press conferences, set up a “field legal office,” and interacted with the victim’s family, protesters and law enforcement.

Statements from NBPP leaders prior to and during their presence in Ferguson  have featured calls for violence against police. Shabazz wrote on Facebook yesterday that if the name of the officer who shot Michael Brown is not released, he will release the officer’s name and address to “give the demonstrators a clearer target.”

Kweli posted a statement on Facebook on August 10 that read: “IF NEED BE PUT AS MANY AGGRESSORS IN THE COFFINS THEY PICKED OUT FOR YOU IN SELF DEFENSE…IF YOU DIE, DIE LIKE A WARRIOR.”

Nzinga addressed the NBPP on the August 11 online broadcast of Black Power Radio titled “Murder In Missouri- Michael Brown And Blood Thirsty Pigs- The Battle Is On!” Nzinga claimed that white Americans are committing “genocide” against Black males: “The Black male is being exterminated…The ones who are not being exterminated, they’re pushing them to be gay and fags so they won’t be productive on reproducing babies. This is about genocide.”

Nzinga injected anti-Semitism into the discussion, blaming the recent incident on the supposedly Jewish-controlled media. “Jews’ media and the Jews’ TV, they have made it look like we’re the villains of America…” said Nzinga. He also blamed violence in Chicago on Mayor Rahm Emanuel who he described as “a Jew, and that Jew is a master at propaganda.”

Additionally, Nzinga described support the NBPP has received from St. Louis based media and real estate mogul Michael V. Roberts. “Our billionaire friend Mike Roberts, I’ve been on the phone with him all week. He will be bringing us in again,” said Nzinga.

Kweli, the host of the often racist and anti-Semitic Black Power Radio, expressed similar sentiments to Nzinga’son the August 11 broadcast, describing police actions in the aftermath of the shooting in Fergusonas “state-sponsored terrorism against our people” and as “a war.”

In the same broadcast, Shabazz suggested the next tactic for police in Ferguson is to set up concentration camps. “The SWAT team is out and all the plans and the plots of the concentration camps are out,” he said.

The NBPP commonly takes on racially-charged issues under the guise of championing civil rights as they also did in the aftermath of the Trayvon Martin incident. The group’s demonstrations, conferences, and other events often blend inflammatory bigotry with calls for violence, tarnishing its efforts to promote Black pride and consciousness.

New Black Panthers Exploit Gaza Conflict To Promote Anti-Semitism

As incidents of anti-Semitism in the U.S. increase in response to Israel’s military operations to stop Hamas rocket fire from Gaza, the New Black Panther Party, the largest organized anti-Semitic and racist Black militant group in America, has begun to use the conflict to promote its bigotry.

On the July 28 episode of the NBPP’s online radio program, Black Power Radio, NBPP National Chairman Hashim Nzinga portrayed Israel as satanic, stating, “These crackers over in Israel do a ceasefire with the brother and sister Palestinians, and then they start bombing their children in the next 30 minutes.” He continued, “If you’re of a higher education and a higher learning, understand the order of the devil. The devil is gonna deceive you.”

On the July 21 episode, NBPP Chief of Staff Chawn Kweli similarly demonized Israelis, calling them “so-called Jews in Israel in what’s really Palestine…some player haters, some Zionists, some so-called Jews who the Book of Revelations…calls the Synagogue of Satan.”

Kweli praised the tactics of Hamas, stating that the Black community in the U.S. “can learn to fight for [its] land” from the Palestinians. “They don’t have all them tanks…they don’t have that, but they got heart. They got will. They got guerilla tactics.”

In Nzinga’s July 14 criticism of Israel, he invoked the anti-Semitic conspiracy theory that Jews carried out the 9/11 attacks. According to Nzinga, “Since George Bush and the Jews exploded American people with 9/11 and put fear in America…it’s not out of sync that them Jews would attack the Palestinians during Ramadan and start a war during the holy days.”

King Samir Shabazz Said To Be Arrested On “Gun Related Charges”

New Black Panther Party (NBPP) National Field Marshall King Samir Shabazz was arrested “on alleged probation violations and gun related charges” according to former NBPP leader Malik Zulu Shabazz.samir-shabazz-arrested-new-black-panther-malik

While the details of his reported arrest are still unclear, Samir Shabazz was previously arrested in June 2013 in New York for carrying a loaded, unlicensed firearm and illegally wearing body armor.

In an online radio interview on June 17, Shabazz, whose former name is Maruse Heath, announced that on July 5 he would be speaking in Charlotte, North Carolina, and that he intends to start a Charlotte chapter of the NBPP.

In the same interview, Shabazz ranted about the “damn lying bastard, the white man,” stating, “I don’t plan on committing no damn suicide. Damn it, I’m preparing for some homicide, on my enemy.”

Such violent rhetoric is nothing new for Shabazz, who pub­licly stated that NBPP mem­bers should press their uni­forms so the crease could “cut that cracker’s throat in half and watch his head roll down the street.”

In an August 2012 NBPP online radio broad­cast, he went on a vicious tirade describ­ing white nurs­eries and churches as legit­i­mate tar­gets for bombing stating “You’re going to have to go into the God damn nurs­ery and just throw a damn bomb in the damn nurs­ery and just kill every­thing white in sight that ain’t right,” and “Well we gonna throw a bomb in that God damn church, burn up the cracker, burn up the cracker Jesus, and burn up some cracker white supremacy.”

In 2009, Shabazz was impli­cated in a U.S. Depart­ment of Jus­tice suit after a voter intim­i­da­tion inci­dent while he was head of the NBPP’s Philadel­phia chapter. Additionally, he was arrested and released in 2008 for dis­or­derly con­duct after he and oth­ers inter­rupted a rally in Atlantic City.
