Questions for debate:
5) Should the AG or President or Congressional Black Caucus or other black leadership come out and condemn the NBP? Do you think they will?
The Pseudo Black Panther Party has become today's cause celebre of the Right as part of their never-ending need to find new boogeymen to frighten their followers witless. One day it's the Reds, then it's the pinkos, the hippies, the radical Blacks, the uppity women, the won't stay in the closet gays and even subversive Teletubbies or Bert and Ernie.
Guess we're back to the Blacks again.
The late journalist Carl T. Rowan observed, "A minority group has "arrived" only when it has the right to produce some fools and scoundrels without the entire group paying for it
" but for the right-wing every
Black person is culpable for the bad actors in the group.
It's a specious argument to make that Attorney General Holder or President Obama or the CBC or the head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs should be expected to "come out and condemn" the Pseudo Black Panthers. Why? Because they're all part of the "Black" club? By that twisted logic, everyone in Black leadership should be running to the mic to condemn Cousin Pookie who knocked over the liquor store and Ray-Ray 'cause he's a crackhead and everybody knows he broke in those old folks' home and stole their flat screen TV.
Why don't you ask "your Blacks
" like Shufflin' Shelby Steele, Hankerchief Head Herman Cain, Jivin' Jesse Lee Peterson or Chicken Stealin' Clarence Thomas to come out and condemn the Pseudo Black Panthers, Bikerdad?
They live for that sort of thing if it makes White Right-wingers feel better about themselves.
If the Pseudo Black Panthers didn't exist, the White Right would have had to create them. Nothing like guys walking around in the Florida heat in too much leather chanting and pumping a black gloved fist in the air to scare the crap outta White folks.
This thread has been quite inspirational. Let's take it to the next step. I'll start one just like it demanding White leaders like Mitt Romney, Rush Limbaugh, Donald Trump, Ted Nugent and Tim Tebow speak out against the Neo-Nazis
wandering around Sanford, Florida trying to start a race war.
Or maybe the Neo-Nazis armed and spoiling for a fight will turn the corner and run into the Pseudo Black Panthers armed and spoiling for a fight and everyone on both sides blows away the other and the rest of the country has a Merry Christmas.
