Another Hate Group for Obama: New Black Panther Party

New Black Panther

Noting that this page has acquired 396 points (presumably from activities with Obama ’08 or ratings from other participants), it is difficult to believe that Obama’s staff is not aware of this page. Obama’s acceptance of the New Black Panther Party’s support would be entirely consistent with his reluctance to “reject” Louis Farrakhan’s endorsement, and his actual endorsement of Al Sharpton and his National Action Network. The latter shares a common language with the New Black Panther Party, since both are familiar with the phrase “bloodsucking Jews” and other forms of racist and anti-Semitic hate speech.

Anti-Defamation League page on the New Black Panther Party:

Founder: Aaron Michaels
Leader: Malik Zulu Shabazz
Headquarters: Washington, D.C.
Founded: 1990
Ideology: A mix of black nationalism, Pan-Africanism and racist and anti-Semitic bigotry
Influences: Original Black Panthers, Black Panther Militia, Nation of Islam

[Khallid Abdul] Muhammad’s rise through the group’s hierarchy was abruptly halted in November 1993, after he delivered a notoriously anti-Semitic, anti-Catholic, homophobic and racist speech at New Jersey’s Kean College. In his remarks, Muhammad referred to Jews as “bloodsuckers,” called for genocide against whites, vulgarly ridiculed Pope John Paul II and demeaned homosexuals. The speech attracted significant media attention, and Muhammad was condemned by a wide range of religious and political leaders – including the U.S. Congress, which issued a condemnation in 1994 that decried the speech as “outrageous hatemongering of the most vicious and vile kind.” Farrakhan responded to the controversy by removing Muhammad from the group’s leadership, although the NOI leader noted that he faulted only the form, not “the truth,” of Muhammad’s remarks.

    To be honest, this is an incredibly lame story. The barackobama site is set up like a social networking/blogging site like facebook or blogger, anyone can join, and it’s poorly moderated so it relies on people to report offensive pages so they know to remove them. This is like saying blogger or facebook endorses racial violence because the KKK set up a blog/page on their site.

    Blogger and facebook are not partisan political sites that are working for a specific candidate. I doubt, for example, that a page that supported Hillary Clinton would last very long at Obama’s Web site. The Black Panther page remained there for quite some time.
