New Black Panther Party - Instigating a Race War!?

But, What About Justice for Zimmerman?
By Lloyd Marcus

I keep thinking of an episode of the 1973 TV show, “Kojak: The Marcus-Nelson Murders.” Homicide detective Kojak suspects that the black teenager accused of murdering two white girls is being framed by his fellow detectives.
The case gets a lot of media attention; politics and careers enter the mix. The frightened accused black kid pleads his innocence to detective Kojak who believes him. Kojak educates the defendant to the cold harsh reality of the situation. Kojak informed the kid that despite his innocence, the case had become such a political hot button and because the police held the kid in jail for so long, he must be found guilty of something.
I see this same scenario developing in the Martin/Zimmerman case.
Most Americans desire a fair and just outcome of this tragedy. But, Lord help us if the evidence proves Zimmerman to be innocent. If Zimmerman is ruled not-guilty and allowed to walk, I foresee Rodney King-type riots in the streets. Thus, is Zimmerman's fate already sealed? Will a jury decide Zimmerman must be declared guilty of something?
While Al Sharpton, New Black Panthers and all of the other racist race-hustling usual suspects clamor for justice for Trayvon Martin, I wonder if justice is even possible for George Zimmerman.
Will political correctness ensure that Zimmerman be found guilty of something regardless of the evidence?
Tragically and frighteningly, we live in a time in which the law and truth appears to be losing relevance in America.
For example. Clearly, the individual mandate in Obamacare is unconstitutional. And yet, Obama believes he can bully the Supreme Court to rule in his favor because “he” believes the mandate is a good thing. Ponder that folks, the president is pressuring U.S. Supreme Court justices to bend the truth and the law to suit his desires. Obama, the president who would be King.
For years, Democrats have been trying to abort the thorn-in-the-side stumbling block to their socialistic agenda known as the U.S. Constitution. Who could have imagined deceiving the American people into putting a black Trojan Horse extreme left liberal into the Oval Office would “Git-r-done”?
If Obama successfully forces U.S. Supreme Court justices to succumb to his politically correct interpretation of the law and rule Obamacare constitutional, setting such a precedence could mean so-called “white Hispanic” George Zimmerman is toast. It would mean facts, truth and the law are no longer relevant – only what the people/mob want rules the day.
Regardless if the evidence proves otherwise, Zimmerman will be found guilty of “something” to avoid riots in the streets. We are talking political correctness on steroids.
Folks, I am not saying Zimmerman is innocent. I do not know. I am simply saying in these morally bankrupt times in which we live, I am concerned that facts and truth are becoming irrelevant.
Since Zimmerman posted $150,000 bail, here are just a few of the shocking tweets calling for violence against him.
“Ima kill Zimmerman myself *loads semi* where he at”
“I think imma personally kill George Zimmerman…anyone’s welcome to join (: …Leggggoooo !”
‘I WOULD KILL DA SHYT OUTTA DAT ZIMMERMAN DUDE IF I SAW HIS A** BOAAAA’
“Someone pass me a gun, imma go follow zimmerman, shoot and kill him and say #imstandingmyground”
“Lets kill #zimmerman”
“They let Zimmerman free lets kill that MF”
“George Zimmerman Released From Jail 150,000 Bail! WTF! Ni**a You Are About To Die, Start Writing Your Will!…”
Have you heard the slightest hint of media outrage over the threats on Zimmerman's life? Have you heard any rebuke or threat of the Obama administration taking action against these thugs? Oh I know, they are still busy investigating Ted Nugent for passionately encouraging voters to “vote” Obama out in November.
But seriously folks, the media and Obama administration’s passivity regarding the threats on Zimmerman's life is shocking and should be an eye opener to us all. Anyone on the left's excrement list can expect no justice and no peace.
If those threatening Zimmerman's life are black, Attorney General Eric Holder has pretty much given them a pass. In 2010, Justice Department whistle-blower, J. Christian Adams said word came down from above to, “Never bring another lawsuit against a black or other national minority, apparently no matter what they do.”
Where was the national media investigation, outrage and clamors for Holder's immediate resignation? Are we living in an Obama administration parallel universe bizarre-o world? Do I really need to state the obvious re-action had there been accusations of Bush's Justice Department saying they would not pursue white defendants?
No presidential call for civility toward George Zimmerman. Zimmerman is for the most part, on his own. All Zimmerman can do is hide. My fellow Americans, this is so very, very wrong. What is becoming of our great country? Lord help us!

Calming the Storm of Martin - Zimmerman Related Racial Violence
By Lloyd Marcus
April 25, 2012
NewsWithViews.com
As a black conservative Tea Party patriot, I have been struggling with what I should do, if anything, in response to the rash of incidents of racial violence resulting from the Martin/Zimmerman case. Folks, a great evil is running the show in our country right now.
Prolific race-hustler Al Sharpton is heralded as a hero. Attorney General Eric Holder ignores the New Black Panther “dead or alive” bounty on George Zimmerman. Three major TV networks are caught manipulating facts of the Martin/Zimmerman case to fuel racial hatred and anger. Minister Farrakhan tweeted referring to the Martin/Zimmerman case, “Where there is no justice, there will be no peace. Soon and very soon, the law of retaliation may very well be applied.”
Even a nut case white supremacist group have thrown their hat, or skinned heads, into the ring, threatening violence.
Rather than showing pictures of 6'3” seventeen-year-old Trayvon Martin, nearly every TV news broadcast features pictures of Trayvon as an adorable little boy in his little league football uniform. This is done by design to further the media's storyline: innocent-little-black-boy-murdered-by-evil-racist-white-man. Zimmerman is not white. He is Hispanic. To further the mainstream media storyline, the New York Times has deemed Zimmerman, a “white” Hispanic.
I do not know what transpired between George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin. I do know that the Race Industry has gone to extraordinary, dishonest lengths to promote its innocent-little-black-boy-murdered-by-evil-racist-white-man storyline.
Even president Obama despicably and masterfully fueled the flames of racial hatred by saying, “If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon.” As a seasoned professional politician, president Obama surely knew his comment would up the ante of black rage.
So yes, as Christian and as patriot, I wondered, what should I do to help calm the storm of Martin/Zimmerman related racial violence? Should I rally black conservatives to denounce the violence and call for unity at a press conference? No, the liberal biased mainstream media would not cover such a press conference. Non-victim-minded blacks do not fit the media-desired image of America. Blacks who love their country without resentment toward fellow Americans who are white are as repulsive to the mainstream media as showing Dracula the cross.
Well, what about a racial peace rally – blacks and whites standing together, singing songs and talking about unity. No, Obama's SEIU thugs and/or the New Black Panthers could exploit the event by showing up to assault patriots.
Remember Kenneth Gladney, the black conservative who was beaten and sent to the emergency room by SEIU thugs at a town hall meeting during the health care debates? Many believe Gladney's beating was in response to Obama White House's clarion call to “push back twice as hard” and get in the faces of those opposing Obamacare.
The mainstream media will never tell the truth about black-on-white crime. When reporting incidents of black-on-white violence, the media walks a tightrope, bending over backwards to avoid mentioning race. And yet I heard a report on the radio in which the reporter, without hesitation, up front and in your face said five “black” men were shot by a “white” male in a white pickup truck. This type of story fits the racist image that the media desires to portray of white America. According to the media, blacks are ALWAYS the victims and never the aggressors.
So how do we right-thinking, decent Americans counter all the racial hate, evil and violence, fueled by media and the Obama administration, that's contaminating our great country?
Mary is away, up north visiting family. Thus, I found myself in the grocery store checkout line with my shopping cart one-third full. An elderly white gentleman in line behind me had two items. “Excuse me sir – you can go in front of me.” He gleefully replied, “Thank you very much.” After the cashier had bagged his items and given the elderly white gentleman his change, he thanked me again.
I thought, that's it! For now, until God leads me otherwise, I can simply continue doing what I, along with millions of my fellow Americans, do every day: seize every opportunity to spread racial harmony and kindness. I know that sounds corny, but I know it is the right thing to do.
Despite what the Race Industry would have you believe, a majority of Americans are not at each other throats, divided along racial lines. However, this is unquestionably the agenda of the Race Industry. Incidents of race related violence are on the rise since the Martin/Zimmerman incident.
Most Americans are over “the race thing.” Americans live, work and play together just fine. Interracial marriage is far from being the big deal it was in the past. Unfortunately, it is the mission of the mainstream media, the Obama administration and race profiteers to keep the Race Industry alive and profitable. These people (race instigators and exploiters) are evil.
Therefore, it is up to us – proud responsible Americans – to continue sowing seeds of racial harmony, brotherhood and peace.

Helter Skelter Manufactured Crisis = Manufactured Race Wars
By Paul McGuire
April 17, 2012
NewsWithViews.com
http://www.newswithviews.com/McGuire/paul124.htm
As the economic pressures increase in the United States and across the world, people have a tendency to retreat into tribal, ethnic and racial groups. That tendency is amplified by radical groups on both the right and the left , who seek to use racial conflict as a means to maintaining and acquiring political power. The stage is being set by the media and other powers in the United States for all-out class warfare. It started months ago with powerful television images of gangs of African American girls brutally beating up a white girl in a fast food restaurant.
The programming of mass consciousness is accelerating with stroboscopic intensity: television images of the New Black Panther Party, Neo-Nazi groups parading in uniform, Trevor Martin, George Zimmerman and on it goes. It seems the mass media, or the people who control the media, want a race war. This should be obvious to anyone who is not wacked out of their mind on drugs or television. The 24/7 news cycle seems intent on stirring the pot with powerful and hateful emotions. Remember the crazed Hippie cult leader Charles Manson, who some say was a practicing Satanist? In 1969 Manson claimed that the Beatles “White Album,” was communicating a subliminal message about an apocalyptic race war, that he named, “Helter Skelter,” after the Beatle’s song.
Charles Manson and his followers, called “The Family,” were doing acid and free love on the deserted Myers ranch near Death Valley, California, where cowboy movies used to be filmed. Manson heard coded messages while on drugs from the “White Album” and gave his private interpretation of the Book of Revelation. Manson believed that he and his followers would escape through a hole that went deep under the earth of Death Valley, into another world until “Helter Skelter” was over.
As reported in the book , “Helter Skelter: The Story of the Manson Murders,” by Vincent Bugliosi and Curt Gentry, ”In the 1970 trial for the Tate-LaBianca murders, Charles Manson testified privately as to the meaning of Helter Skelter, “It means confusion, literally. It doesn’t mean war with anyone. It doesn’t mean that some people are going to kill other people….Helter Skelter is confusion…”
Charles Manson continued:
“Is it a conspiracy that the music is telling the youth to rise up against the establishment because the establishment is rapidly destroying things? Is that a conspiracy?
The music speaks to you every day, but you are too deaf, dumb, and blind to even listen to the music ...
It is not my conspiracy. It is not my music. I hear what it relates. It says 'Rise,' it says 'Kill.'
Why blame it on me? I didn't write the music.”
Obviously, not everyone is going to hear coded messages of race wars in music. But, we live in a culture where a lot of people are teetering on the edge psychologically. Images and messages that stir up racial violence can easily to lead to race wars and then to class wars. Is that their purpose?
I believe it is.
The Cloward-Piven Strategy was developed in the 1960s by a pair of radical leftist Columbia University professors, Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven. The Cloward-Piven Strategy is to force political change through manufactured crisis. Specifically, a manufactured crisis like race wars is intended to create the fall of capitalism by triggering class warfare and violence. It is classic Marxist strategy and that is why we hear terms like the 99% and the 1% repeated like mantras hypnotically through the media. A hero will come in riding a white horse and will act as a political Messiah, who will redistribute the wealth and we will all live in a “workers paradise.” At least for some of us. Another couple of hundred million will die in camps like they did in the former Soviet Union, Cuba, Viet Nam, Cambodia and even Nazi, Germany.
Christian pastors should know the difference between Marxism and the teachings of Jesus Christ, but they are the pawns or “useful idiots, a term coined by Lenin, to describe those who can be used to bring about their own destruction. Although, many churches do not allow the teaching of Bible prophecy, Jesus Christ said,
“For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.” -Matthew 24:7-8.
The word nation, actually come from the word ethnos, which means ethnic or race. Jesus Christ was warning that in the last days there would be race wars. The Greek word ethnos, means nation, ethnic group, as in tribal or civil war.
In Luke 21:9-11, Jesus Christ said,
“But when you hear of wars and commotions, do not be terrified; for these things must come to pass first, but the end will not come immediately.”
Then He said to them,
“Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven.”
Whether or not you believe in Darwinian evolution, it leads philosophically to Social Darwinism, where only the fittest survive. Although, it is not discussed openly, the obvious genetic implication of Darwinism is that there must be a more evolved race or master race. I do not believe in the concept of a “master race,” because I believe all races were created for a purpose by the personal living God of the universe.
Therefore, if one claims to believe the Bible, one would resist the overly simplistic myth, that race is the reason for our economic decline. That does not mean that there are not problems that have to be solved. In addition, I do not believe in the Malthusian myth that over population is the reason for all of mankind’s problems. To use a term coined by Buckminster Fuller, who was an atheist, I do think we live on some kind of Spaceship Earth. However, I do not believe in the myth of scarcity. The reality is we live on a planet with far more resources than we have been told about.
For example, there is no energy shortage, only an energy monopoly. Nikola Tesla solved that problem over a hundred years ago. The root of mankind’s problems is not racial, but spiritual. The cause of poverty and the alleged need for “social justice,” which is a Marxist term, is not due to a conflict between the worker and the 1%. Socialism is a social control mechanism and a means of wealth consolidation developed by the Illuminati as early as the late 1700s. Their motto then, as it is today is, “Order out of Chaos,” or manufactured crisis. I expose the hidden agenda behind all this in the 3-DVD series, “Are You Ready?”

New Black Panther Party Leader Arrested on Charges of Gun Possession
Christopher Santarelli
March 27, 2012
The new Black Panther Party has re-emerged lately to issue an independent call for the vigilante capture of Trayvon Martin’s shooter, George Zimmerman. So it may be concerning to some that Fox News now reports the New Black Panther Party leader who announced a $10,000 bounty on Zimmerman has been arrested for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon:
Hashim Nzinga, 49, was in possession of an FN Herstal 5.7×28 handgun that he allegedly sold to the Stone Mountain Pawn Shop on March 5 in DeKalb County, Sgt. Adrion Bell, the public information officer, told FoxNews.com.
Last month, Nzinga was convicted for felony deposit account fraud in nearby Gwinnett County, Bell said. It is illegal for a convicted felon to carry a firearm in the state and police were alerted to Nzinga’s alleged possession after the store’s transaction, Bell said.
He was arrested without incident at the probation office he was reporting to, Bell said.
The FN Herstal 5.7×28 is considered a high-end gun that can fetch $800 to $900 at a pawn shop. It is unclear how much Nzinga made from the alleged sale.
Nzinga serves as the New Black Panther Party’s chief of staff. He recently made news after going on CNN and offering a $10,000 reward for the capture of George Zimmerman, whose role in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin is being investigated by Florida authorities.”
Last Thursday, The New Black Panther Party, a recognized racist and anti-Semitic organization, circulated a “wanted dead or alive” poster for Zimmerman during a press conference in Jacksonville Florida.
“Murdered in cold blood,” the flyer read. “Child killer of Trayvon Martin — Wanted dead or alive.”

Anderson Cooper And New Black Panther Leader Clash Over Group Meddling In Trayvon Martin Case
by Frances Martel
March 26th, 2012
The New Black Panther Party: they exist, and they have somehow squeezed themselves into a corner of the Trayvon Martin tragedy, no matter how much no one else– particularly Martin’s parents– want them around. But they are calling for a “citizen’s arrest” of George Zimmerman and leader Minister Mikhail Muhammad spoke to Anderson Cooper today to try to explain just what his group was doing. In the process, he “indicted” Zimmerman with “1st degree murder” and accused Cooper of not “caring about the Martin family.”
“He committed murder, he committed a hate crime,” Muhammad told Cooper, explaining, “we decided to take it upon ourselves and coalition with other groups, with other black people who have had enough.” Cooper tried to explain two key faults in their plan: that Zimmerman hadn’t been charged with anything, and “Trayvon’s parents don’t want you.” Neither seemed to matter. “We are military, we are here to support Trayvon’s family,” Muhammad argued, bizarrely, later adding they weren’t really doing this for Trayvon Martin– “they have killed millions of black men and women so not only are we calling for justice for Trayvon.”
“You tell our justice department and Eric Holder and our President Obama to get off up their ass and do the work and the rest is done!” Muhammad argued, then trying to convince Cooper that “we can make a citizen’s arrest when the government will not do their job according to the Constitution.” “Factually… that doesn’t make any sense,” Cooper replied, but Muhammad wasn’t having it. “I don’t obey the white man’s law,” he replied, adding, “you don’t care about Trayvon’s family.”
“You have no idea what’s in my heart or my mind, or what I’ve been reporting,” Cooper replied politely, and asking him to explain why the Southern Poverty Law Center “says you’re a hate group.” The answer? “The white man cannot call anybody anti-Semitic, he is not Semitic, he is a racist, a murderer…” It was that kind of interview.

Group offers $10,000 for US black teen's killer
AFP – Sat, Mar 24, 2012
A black political group offered a $10,000 reward Saturday for the killer of an African-American teenager, amid a nationwide uproar which has prompted a rethink of America's race issues.
The New Black Panther Party displayed a wanted poster on its website with a picture of George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who shot Trayvon Martin, 17, last month.
"WANTED!!! For the murder of Trayvon Martin... ALIVE, not dead or harmed," the poster read.
Several dozen supporters of the group known by its acronym NBPP -- unrelated to the revolutionary Black Panther Party active in the 1960s-1980s -- meanwhile protested for the third time this week at the police headquarters in Sanford, Florida.
"An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth," leader Mikhail Muhammad told the Orlando Sentinel. "We don't hate anyone, we hate injustice."
Activists had called for the mobilization of 5,000 black men to capture Zimmerman. And Muhammad said the NBPP was receiving donations from black entertainers and athletes, with a goal to collect $1 million by next week.
Thousands of demonstrators have marched in at least 10 US cities to express their outrage over the attack, with some of the anger directed at local authorities handling the murder investigation.
They have not arrested or charged Zimmerman because he claimed self-defense, which allowed him to benefit from Florida's "Stand Your Ground" law that lets state residents use lethal force when they are at risk of being killed or seriously injured by an assailant. Zimmerman had a permit to carry a gun.
In Washington, at least 1,000 protesters -- many in black hoodies, some with bags of Skittles candy like the one Martin bought before he was shot -- gathered at Freedom Plaza in the heart of the US capital to demand justice.
"This is bigger than you think it is," said comedian Dick Gregory, an icon of the Civil Rights movement, who suspected that the full story of Martin's death has yet to come to light.
"Don't waste your time with anger until you get the whole truth... Stop being emotional and start demanding answers," he said.
"We must change a society that thinks the black man is a problem," said Rashawn Davis of the Georgetown University chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).
Police at the scene estimated the crowd at 1,000, while organizers put the figure at around 3,000, a day after a vigil for Martin in the capital's low-income Anacostia district.
Sanford police told AFP they were ignoring the NBPP's call to capture Zimmerman, a white Hispanic.
Despite the racially charged nature of the case, Zimmerman's lawyer insisted his client was not racist.
"I asked him, 'Are you a racist? Do you have anything against black people?' and he said 'No,'" Zimmerman's legal adviser Craig Sonner told CNN on Friday. "I don't see anything that indicates to me that he's a racist."
Sonner said Zimmerman and his wife acted as mentors to two teenage African Americans, even after funding was cut for the program.
They have also helped at a fundraiser for an African-American church, according to the lawyer.
President Barack Obama has called for nationwide "soul searching" in the wake of the tragedy.

Hatred
By Jeff Fecke
October 27, 2009
On July 1, over at local righty superblog True North (“Pointing Minnesota in the Right Direction”), Kevin Ecker decided to use his time to highlight an anti-immigration rally in Austin, Minnesota:
Political activism at it’s [sic] best is honest grassroots efforts by people finally fed up with lying politicians who decide to do something about an issue rather than just complain. We have a great example of that coming up here in Minnesota on the immigration issue.
On Saturday, July 11th at 2 PM, there will be a rally held at the Mower County Courthouse. It’s located at 201 First Street NE, Austin, MN. This will be the second rally in a month at that location.
Basically Austin is a town that the residents feel has been devastated by illegal immigration, and a lone resident, Sam Johnson, finally got fed up. He organized the first rally despite being up against professionally organized counter protests by the likes of La Raza, Centro Campesino and various Marxist organizations bussed in from the cities.
Sam Johnson, honest American, just doing the best he can to make our country free of “illegal immigration.” Or, you know, any immigration. Because this is Sam Johnson:
In case you’re wondering — and I doubt you are, but some people might not be able to view the picture — yes, that’s a guy wearing a neo-Nazi uniform. Because Sam Johnson isn’t just a hard-working white American who’s fed-up with illegal immigration. He’s a neo-Nazi, the head of the National Socialist Movement Southeast Minnesota. He is one of the most vile individuals in my state, and he’s a guy who the world will be better off without.
Sally Jo Sorensen of the outstanding Bluestem Prairie blog actually interviewed Johnson (one hopes she took a long, hot shower afterward); you should really read all of part one and bookmark the site for the next two installments, but here’s a brief excerpt:
“Minorities should not be citizens,” Johnson said, “only 100 percent true white Americans.” He outlined his vision of a nation in which all people of color would be stripped of their citizenship, no matter how long their families had lived in the United States, and moved to communities that would be strictly delineated according to race.
People of African descent would live with other people of African descent, Latinos with Latinos, Asians with Asians, American Indians with American Indians, and “real Americans” with other “real Americans. “Real American” and non-citizen status would be determined be having had family living in the country for five generations or 50-70 years.
Only if non-whites broke the law would they be sent back to the country of their ancestors’ origins, regardless of how long their families had lived in the United States. Of course, Johnson emphasized, this would dictate deporting all immigrants living here illegally.
“Minorities could have jobs, own homes, and enjoy their own culture,” he said. They simply wouldn’t be citizens of the United States, nor could they become citizens. They would have to keep separate.
Why separate?
“If you look back in history to every country that’s allowed different races to mingle,” he said, “you’ll see that nation has fallen.”
“Look at what happened to Rome,” he said, when I example him for an example of what he meant. “Jews and Africans came into Rome, there were uprisings, and Rome fell.”
This is the guy that True North — a blog that has included Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn.; PowerLine’s Scott Johnson; and David Strom, the head of the Minnesota Taxpayers League as contributors — decided to back. A neo-Nazi. But that shouldn’t be surprising — the Republican party has deliberately chosen to throw its lot in with the most extreme elements of the hard-core, fascist-and-no-that’s-not-hyperbole, racist right. It is disgusting. It is despicable.
This is why those of us on the left don’t buy it when the right claims that they’re not racist — because they are so very willing to embrace racists when it helps them. If Republicans want to stop being seen as the party of hate, they need to stop the hatred. Otherwise, they need to own the fact that a sitting Republican congresswoman is a contributor to a website that promoted a neo-Nazi hate rally, promotion that included sharing Sam Johnson’s email address with those looking to get involved. Only a party that found racism acceptable could be comfortable with that.
