Nothing to see here.
Just black nationalism and pure evil meeting at, as usual, a House Democrat forum. The only baffling thing here is how AOC missed attending.
Three Democratic lawmakers hosted a forum earlier this month where several convicted cop killers were hailed as political prisoners. The event featured a former Black Panther implicated in the torture of a member suspected of being a police informant.
Speakers at the May 10 forum, hosted by Reps. Steve Cohen (D., Tenn.), Bobby Rush (D., Ill.), and Barbara Lee (D., Calif.), praised Mumia Abu-Jamal, Mutulu Shakur, H. Rap Brown, and other black liberationists who are all serving life sentences for killing police officers. The topic of the event was COINTELPRO, the FBI program that tracked black separatist groups in the 1960s and 1970s.
Lee introduced perhaps the most controversial speaker at the event, former Black Panther leader Ericka Huggins. Lee, who worked closely with the Black Panthers as an Oakland community activist in the 1970s, referred to Huggins as her “former colleague and comrade.”
Huggins and another forum speaker, Black Panther Party cofounder Bobby Seale, were charged in 1970 with the murder of Alex Rackley, a party member suspected of snitching to the police. Rackley was tortured on May 18, 1969, at a Black Panther hideout in New Haven, Conn. He was fatally shot and dumped in a river two days later. Huggins and Seale were accused of ordering the hit on Rackley, who was 19 years old.
While the case was dropped against Huggins and Seale after a jury failed to reach a verdict, a tape recording introduced at their trial revealed that Huggins was present while Rackley was being tortured. Black Panthers beat Rackley with sticks and poured boiling water over him to force him to confess that he was a police informant, according to contemporaneous news reports of the trial.
The Washington Post reported in a 1977 retrospective of the case that Huggins admitted to boiling the water poured on Rackley, verbally abusing him and kicking him while he sat tied to a chair.
Or as Google defines her, “American Educator”. Huggins’ own site calls her a “political prisoner.” Which I guess is true if you define committing crimes for political reasons as being a political prisoner.
There’s an actual recording of this and it’s much more instructive than Democrat elected officials and black supremacist terrorists backed by corporations discussing how America is evil.
The tape is embedded here. And there’s a transcript.
HUGGINS: Ericka Huggins, member of the New Haven Chapter Black Panther Party, political education instructor. On May 17th at approximately 10 o’clock, Brother Alex from New York was sleeping in the office; this is a house that we use as an office. And I kicked him and said, “Motherfucker, wake up!” Because we don’t sleep in the office, and we relate to reading or getting out.
And so Brother Alex picked up a book, selected military writings of Mao Tse-Tung, and began to read.
I was talking to Brother George and Warren and George looked over at Alex and said, “Brother, I thought you couldn’t read. You told me you couldn’t read before. What you reading?”
You know, and so the brother said, “I can’t read.”
“So why you got the book? Why did you lie to the sister?” …
“Because I didn’t know it.”
So then the brother got some discipline, you know, in the areas of the nose and mouth, and the brother began to show cowardly tendencies, and began to whimper and moan.
They’re torturing a 19-year-old here, by the way.
So then we began to realize how phony he was and that he was either an extreme fool or a pig, so we began to ask questions with a little force and the answers came out after a few buckets of hot water.
Anyone care to ask Speaker Pelosi about this one? The media sure won’t.
