Hashim Nzinga, the national chairman of the New Black Panther Party, contended the United States has “declared war on us,” citing “military police in the black neighborhood.”
“America is about protecting the rich and the powerful,” Nzinga said on last week’s edition of the New Black Panther Party’s “Black Panther Radio,” according to Breitbart.
So if we say we are at war, we should be applauded like George Washington. We should be applauded like Thomas Jefferson. We should be applauded like the Founding Fathers of the country.
“This is not the hate hour, this is the love hour,” Nzinga continued. “We have to love ourselves enough to be willing to die or kill to save our babies and to save a black nation that is dying before our eyes.”
These comments are hardly the New Black Panther Party’s leader’s first foray into the controversial. Speaking to supporters last August, Nzinga suggested the president was not born in this country– hardly a left-wing position–as Freedom Outpost reported at the time:
This is a shame that as we speak the President of United States is talking to Russia, he’s talking to China, he’s talking to North Korea, he’s talking to Iraq and the Middle East about treating their people better. Stop repressing your people.
But as he looks out the window at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, he’s watching the black man, who built the White House, shot down like dogs. If you like it or not he is from Kenya. He’s a Mau Mau. He needs to go back to his roots and stop people from killing the Africans in the streets.
In 2012, Nzinga offered a bounty of $10,000 to anyone who could reign in the killer of Trayvon Martin – George Zimmerman- “dead or alive,” according to Russia Today.
That same year, the Black Panther leader plead guilty to writing a bad check for $3,000 in Gwinnett County, Ga., and was arrested for selling a gun to a pawn shop in DeKalb County, Ga. It is illegal for a convicted felon in The Peach State to possess a firearm, The Atlanta Journal Constitution noted. That charge, however, was dropped on a technicality, as he was never told he shouldn’t own a firearm.
