HUNTSVILLE, Ala., July 19, 2013 — Malik Shabazz leads the New Black Panther Party. His hobbies include wielding a billy club outside of polling stations to intimidate white voters. In 2010, Shabazz recommended killing white babies to avenge past injustices predating his birth. “You want freedom? You’re gonna have to kill some crackers! You’re gonna have to kill some of their babies!”
Shabazz is an impatient man of direct action. He has decided, to paraphrase Florida Congresswoman Frederica Wilson, to ensure that Zimmerman is “hunted down like a dog,” so has offered a reward for Zimmerman’s capture. Since Zimmerman is currently not accused of any crime, “capturing” him appears to be a thinly-veiled call for something more violent.
Why is a man like Shabazz on the streets? Is he just a harmless buffoon? Do liberals think that “kill some crackers” is just a cute expression?
Attorney General Eric Holder is a far more patient man than Shabazz. He has, however, come under fire for refusing to prosecute Shabazz. He may not think Shabazz is worth taking seriously, focusing instead on that much greater threat to public saftey, Zimmerman, whom he will pursue with the tenacity of a button-down Javert.
Most Americans respect the rule of law, not as a weapon of oppression or political force, as the French crown did, but as an instrument of justice. Holder and Shabazz, each in his own way, believe in law as a tool of ideology and a weapon to use against their enemies. Shabazz has decided to engage in street justice, also known as mob rule. If it furthers his ideological objectives, Holder is willing to benignly ignore it as just another form of law.
Despite having other responsibilities like cleaning up his own agency, Holder is using the full weight and power of his office to find any excuse whatsoever to indict Zimmerman on federal charges.
Holder’s priorities don’t include the New Black Panthers. He may not approve of their violent rhetoric, but he is in complete sympathy with their goals. Putting on a fancy suit does not make Holder less radical.
Holder has voiced zero objection to Shabazz. If someone who takes Shabazz more seriously kills Zimmerman or a member of his family, he will be a hero to the people who are shouting “No justice, no peace.” He will have stopped the “real” violent threat facing this nation. Will Holder’s justice department find the will to move against a “hero”?
The problem the DOJ needs to deal with is not Rush Limbaugh, Fox News or old ladies with knitting needles. One can say with statistical certainty that they have zero responsibility for the violence on our streets or political violence in America.
The radical left foments most of the political violence in this country. This violence brings consequences. One of them is “minority sympathy fatigue.” Let us all be liberals and give Shabazz what he wants. Forget Plessy vs Ferguson or Brown vs Board of Education. Forget Justice Thurgood Marshall: Return a form of segregation.
Arrest Shabazz and any of his followers who advocate violence. Ask them to take a loyalty oath to a separate black society, which they have already advocated. Anybody accepting the oath gets put in lockdown, segregated from the general prison population. A few days in lockdown may have some of them singing the praises of integration.
Everybody needs to celebrate my father’s favorite holiday. It is called “Shut the heck up and go to work Day.” Some will say that finding work is difficult. Has Shabazz even looked?
Maybe Shabazz should consult with Damon Wayans and Tim Meadows, who participated in a hilarious Saturday Night Live skit called “Perspectives, With Lionel Osborne.”
Wayans: “The blood of the white man is going to roll as the revolution takes to the streets this weekend.”
Meadows: “What if it is raining this weekend?”
Wayans: “Then the blood of the white man is going to roll as the revolution takes to the streets next weekend.”
Meadows: “What if it is raining next weekend?”
Wayans: “Whose side are you on man?”
Meadows (to the audience): “There you have it America. This weekend the blood of the white man will roll as the revolution takes to the streets, unless it is raining, where the blood of the white man will roll next week. This concludes today’s episode of ‘Perspectives.’ Our diversity programming continues next at 4 a.m. with programming for the Spanish community. Up next is ‘Los Perspectivos’ with me, your host, Lionel Osborne.”
Virtually every problem in life, including the fallout from the George Zimmerman scuffle with Trayvon Martin, can be solved with 1950s Doo-Wop music. There are plenty of Doo-Wop bands that could hire Shabazz. Perhaps “The Marcels” are hiring.
“Bob buh buh bob, buh bob buh bob bob,
Buh buh bob, buh buh bob, duh dang duh dang dang,
Duh ding dong ding dong,
Black (Panther) Bu-ffoon,
You saw me standing alone,
Without a dream in my heart,
Without a love of my own.
You saw me screaming at whites,
While I wielded a baton,
I only wanted love,
and my own telethon.”
It is time for Shabazz to feel the rhythm, beat and soothing sounds of Doo-Wop. Then it is time for Holder’s law enforcement personnel to actually enforce the law. It is time for a Doo-Wop lock up.
Maybe a Klan member can shave “Ebony and Ivory” into Shabazz’s head in prison, and Shabazz can reciprocate in the name of racial harmony and coming together.
