Baltimore Protest Organizer Spouts Inflammatory Rhetoric On NBPP Radio

Malik Zulu Shabazz, the racist and anti-Semitic for­mer leader of the New Black Pan­ther Party (NBPP), who has taken credit for orga­niz­ing protests in Bal­ti­more in the after­math of Fred­die Gray’s death, went on the NBPP’s Black Power Radio ear­lier this week to express his inflam­ma­tory views.

While Shabazz has attempted to por­tray him­self as a civil rights leader in Bal­ti­more, he openly expressed his big­otry and praised the actions of riot­ers in Monday’s broad­cast of Black Power Radio.

Dur­ing this broad­cast, Shabazz praised pro­tes­tors “espe­cially the youth, who rose up like the Pales­tini­ans did, rose up against the police state, rose up against occu­pa­tion, rose up and caused a rebel­lion in the streets.”

In response to claims that riot­ers are dam­ag­ing their own com­mu­nity, Shabazz asked, “What do you mean our com­mu­nity? How much of it did we own? Forty-four of the stores that were burned down in Bal­ti­more were owned by out­siders or Kore­ans. We didn’t own those stores.”

Shabazz also jus­ti­fied the burn­ing down of a CVS claim­ing that such stores are “tak­ing all our money…what really has CVS done for our com­mu­nity? They gave out a few jobs and took a whole bunch of money from us.”

While dis­cussing those who do not agree with his tac­tics, Shabazz stated, “There are a lot of haters out there against Attor­ney Shabazz [and] the New Black Pan­ther Party. And we’re gonna stop all this god­damn talk­ing and raise up an army and deal with you motherf—ers.”

By appear­ing on Black Power Radio, Shabazz, who stepped down from his lead­er­ship role with the Pan­thers in 2013, reaf­firmed his con­tin­ued involve­ment with the NBPP, the largest orga­nized anti-Semitic and racist Black mil­i­tant group in America.

In the same broad­cast, Hashim Nzinga, the cur­rent leader of the NBPP, injected anti-Semitism into the dis­cus­sion, employ­ing a com­mon trope of his: that a sup­pos­edly Jewish-controlled media nefar­i­ously por­trays Black peo­ple in a neg­a­tive light. “And with your Jew­ish and your mostly meno­rah, I mean major­ity, uh, minority-owned TV sta­tions, going to paint a pic­ture like something’s wrong with us,” Nzinga stated.

Nzinga also offered inflam­ma­tory lan­guage describ­ing a “geno­cide” tak­ing place in Amer­ica. “That’s all in you, white man, is to fight and kill. And when you can’t fight or kill, you go hunt…You’ve got to be killing some­thing. And right now, it’s killing the Black man off.” He added, “We ain’t gonna let you do it no more.”

The NBPP com­monly takes on racially-charged issues under the guise of cham­pi­oning civil rights as they also did in the after­math of the shoot­ing of Michael Brown in Fer­gu­son and Trayvon Mar­tin. How­ever, 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 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.”
