When Attorney General Eric Holder intervened to exempt the New Black Panther thugs from voter intimidation charges, it only emboldened them
When Attorney General Eric Holder intervened to exempt the New Black Panther thugs from voter intimidation charges, it only emboldened them to stage scenes like these.
During a 2012 interview on the streets of Jacksonville, Fl., one of the leaders of the New Black Panthers, Mikhail Muhammad, told a group of reporters that Trayvon Martin has "been assassinated by a wicked white beast."
Muhammad went on to call Zimmerman a "no good Jew."
The press conference was held to call attention to the $10,000 bounty the New Black Panthers have placed on the head of George Zimmerman, who is now awaiting the jury's ruling.
Muhammad explained that the Panthers were "mobilizing 10,000 men, black men in the 'tri-states' of Georgia, Florida and Alabama."
Zimmerman is actually Catholic. Both the father and the son. But it's telling that Muhammad's mind quickly goes to the Jewish question. The NBPP is not just racist, it's reflexively anti-Semitic. And while it's easy to dismiss it as irrelevant, the very fact that Holder's people intervened to protect it against voter intimidation charges show how high in Obama Inc. its support goes.
