40 Years of Violence & Murder: UnHappy Anniversary, Black Panthers

By Debbie Schlussel
Today through Sunday, the Black Panthers are celebrating their 40th anniversary. Check out their absurd, celebratory website. Talk about chutzpah. This group is the epitome of it. “In your face, American Honkies. We got you.”
It’s been a long 40 years under the Panthers reign of terror in America. The Black Panthers’ 40 years has been marked by violence, murder, cop-killing, anti-Semitism, anti-White racism, pan-Islamism and a host of other things that are no good for any free and democratic society.
Several Black Panthers are now extremist Muslims and cause celebres in the Islamofascist community, like convicted, imprisoned cop-killer Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin a/k/a H. Rap Brown. Al-Amin, who bragged, “Violence is as American as cherry pie,” killed one sheriff’s deputy and wounded another in March 2000. The group–so vicious, so violent–even savagely tortured and murdered its own. The disgusting way they tortured and dismembered their living victims was so sick, it rivals that of the Islamic terrorists we are fighting now. Ungreat minds think alike.

Extremist Makeover:

Black Panthers, Then & Now

So there’s really no reason whatsoever to celebrate that this group is still around. Yet, the Panther alums are not only celebrating. They’re expecting us to buy their extremist makeover. These murderous thugs now want you to believe they are “activists” and want you to see “a positive image.” They think donning fancy suits instead of berets and military garb will instantly erase our memory banks about their “activities.”
They’ve tried this before, with “Burn Baby Burn” Black Panther hot sauce. But the only thing that was burning is America under their reign of terror. You can’t remake years of murderous thuggery with a sudden Halloween costume of the Black Martha Stewart. They never apologized for murdering innocent people, leaving cops’ children fatherless, taking others’ lives for nothing.
From an apologist San Francisco Chronicle piece on the 40th confab, we’re racists because we don’t like “civil rights” groups that murder for a living:

Clarence Walker, a professor at UC Davis who specializes in African American history, said activist black organizations in the United States often are seen as militant by the general public because the country has a schizophrenic vision of black people.
“You are either dancing and happy or you are a militant. The Black Panthers represented that phase of black power that believed black people should be armed and defend themselves and turn away from the nonviolent resistance movement,” Walker said. “There is this image of them in white America — as well as some parts of black America — as a threatening and dangerous thing.
“Then there are a large number of people — especially in the Bay Area — who grew up seeing them do good things. There have always been two sides to it.” . . .
But the image that stuck with many Americans was that of black militants with berets and guns. Stories of Panthers’ shootouts with police overwhelmed coverage of their work with the poor, said Seale, who changed the group’s name from Black Panther Party for Self-Defense to Black Panther Party because “we got tired of being confused with a paramilitary-type organization.”

More Extremist Makeover:

Black Panthers’ Emblem Then, Black Panthers’ Emblem Now

The party gained international notoriety when Seale and Newton sent armed members to the State Assembly in Sacramento in 1967 to oppose gun restrictions. Several members who walked onto the Senate floor with loaded weapons were arrested for disturbing the peace but not on weapons charges, because they were carrying theirs legally, Seale said.
At its height, about two months after Martin Luther King Jr. was murdered, the Black Panther Party had 5,000 members in 49 chapters and branches across the country, Seale said. The 1968 confrontation that left Hutton dead, along with other shootouts with Oakland police, caused the negative image, members say. The incidents also brought the federal scrutiny that they say ultimately broke up the party. The FBI infiltrated the Panthers and several other activist groups in its infamous counterintelligence program called Cointelpro, begun in 1967.
“J. Edgar Hoover saw the guns and what we were accomplishing and said the organization was a threat to security, and he told people that we wanted to shoot and kill white people,” Seale said. “We were about defending ourselves against white racists.” . . .
“Even though we were doing a lot of things in the community, like running for political office, grassroots organizing, handing out breakfast and offering free preventative medical health care and sickle cell tests, people remain confused to this day,” Seale said.

PUH-LEEEEEEEZE!
So do Hezbollah, HAMAS, and Al-Qaeda. And so did Hitler. J. Edgar Hoover was right. And deluded professor Walker and his “two sides to every story” pap? Sorry, there’s only one side to this story. 40 years of Black Panther violence, murder, and mayhem was more than enough. Here’s hoping there won’t be another 40. These domestic terrorists never represented Black America.
The only good thing for Black Panthers in America to do is fade to black.

Yeah, I mean, it’s not like we ever opressed/tortured/humilated/assaulted/killed any blacks…..oh..wait..

Great catch! I bought into their mystique when turning Marxist in the early 90s, going so far as to do community organizing with former BPP members. The intense hard work and idealism that went into that organization, from members and outside supporters alike, proved only to be in the service of a drug-dealing, murdering, psychopathic racket. David Horowitz nearly committed “passive suicide” in the 70s due to his guilt for having affiliated with them.
Let history remember it as “The Black Gangster Party.”

Jeremiah on October 13, 2006 at 4:26 pm

In an interview late in life, Eldridge Cleaver admitted that had the BPP come anywhere near to gaining political power in the US, there would have been a “holocaust.” Read it in Horowitz’s essay collection “Hating Whitey.”

A 40th anniversary celebration eh? I love a party! Let’s throw a big one! Spike Lee can bake the cake, Al Sharpton can lead the race pimp parade, and we’ll all be reminded once again how much us white folk are despised by those ingrates we made wealthy and successful! Ain’t opression grand? Where do I sign up?

my schizophrenia is influenced by the congo(pick one), nigeria, liberia, rwanda, and maybe through in darfur.
but that’s just me, and MY schizophrenia.

dont the panthers play football in carolina and they play hockey in florida

The Black Panthers were the Black version of the Klan/Overall White Establishment
It didn’t happen in a vacumn. Many of us want to forget that this country was at one time, outright hostile to Blacks. But then of course, if you are White, you think the greatest travesty to this country was the implementation of Affirmative Action.
Perspectives vary I guess.
P.S. Not a fan of the uber-militant panther wannabees of today. It still does not diminish the conditions within this ocuntry the BPP were bron out of.

The anniversary of the Klan is honoured here???

    Before the black panthers ever became violent, they were just a group of 6 people with the idea that if they made a plan of action and community programs then they could gain respect in the community and be treated equally. That was the original goal, but it was skewed by the…obstacles that they were forced to endure. Police would attack innocent blacks without reason- beating them to death and wreaking havoc on inner cities. The government turned a blind eye to this because every person in power was white, and they could care less. They began providing weaponry in an attempt to hault police brutality, and be taken seriously. On april 4 of 1968 Martin Luther King jr. was assasinated. As the leader of the nonviolent civil rights movement there was no reason to kill him other than racist motives. On april 25th of the same year was when the BPP began to train its members on gun use. They were clearly threatened by the fact that white society was willing to murder a peaceful leader with no basis.
    true there were some random acts of violence commited by the BPP prior to this date, but most was instigated by the police.
    you stated that these “domestic terrorists never represented black america”. On the contrary, there were over 45 branches of the party all over the country, each of which conducted over 60 charity groups to better society.
    I believe that you’re view of this group is off- and I can’t blame you. The fear that the press coverage of this time created has stuck to the image of the BPP. In reality they were only trying to gain the equality that had been denied to them since their entry to the country.

Eldridge Cleaver was an infiltrator, a sell-out, and a republican. Please don’t use him Jeremiah to support your argument.
As for this article…Debbi Schlussel the Jewish dyke returns.
Debbie you are pretty damn ignorant. Most of you are, but damn Debbie you are leading the pack. Get your facts straight you crazy Nazi Transsexual. Debbie you are a Nazi. I’ll borrow one of your lines where you said the only thing good the BPP did was to fade to black. Wow, you racist transsexual turned dyke what is wrong with you. The bad thing about the holocaust is that it didn’t eliminate your chutzpah ass too.

You racist BITCH! How dare you? No I am not black, but you should be ashamed of yourself. What do you think the KKK is? It’s the same thing. You cannot just say that all they do is murder people. Their original plan was to save the oppressed from their oppressors. DO your freaking research before you post crap like this. How would do like it if some one says those supremacist honkies are celebrating their 146th anniversary? You wouldn’t. Jesus loved everyone and neither judged nor put down anyone. Why don’t you take a lesson from him and get a life. Write about rainbows or something.

P.S.- I know that they murdered people and I am not saying it is okay but you really should not post things like this, it’s not very nice.

Stacey on April 13, 2011 at 10:04 pm

So a group that started as protectors of the oppress from the oppressors.that started many charities and had millions of members at one time is a good group even with a few murders in their past mainly from rouge groups or individuals.I agree with you this is what and who the Klan is the true Klan are protectors of the weak and helpless no matter of color or creed followers of Christ we try to pattern our lives after His.Charitable,community minded, patriotic,chivalric,Honorable,loyal fraternal.

Grand Klaliff on November 23, 2011 at 11:54 pm

This is the most racist and uninformed article I have read in years! It is apparent the the writer is a very closed minded, and a one sided person, who has no understanding of Slavery, Share Cropping, Jim Crow, Vietnam, The Heroin Epidemic of the 70’s, Reaganomics, and the Crack Epidemic…. but you don’t have to be informed to spout hate.
Free breakfast, Free lunch, Free clinics, are all services started by the Black Panthers, to benefit the community, that the United States government now provides! Feeding the children, heeling the sick, fighting for civil/human rights….. yep that sounds like Americas definition of a terrorist!
Happy Anniversary, to the American heroes in the Black Panther Party, both to the living and those assassinated in service to the people!
