Sen. Barack Obama addresses controversy over his pastor in Philadelphia speech today
Just as Sen. Barack Obama sought to distance himself from controversial racial remarks made by his pastor, an anti-American government, anti-white and virulently anti-Semitic black supremacist party has endorsed the presidential candidate on Obama’s own website.
“Obama will stir the ‘Melting Pot’ into a better ‘Molten America,’” states an endorsement from the New Black Panther Party, or NBPP, which is a registered team member and blogger on Obama’s “MyObama” campaign website.
The NBPP is a controversial black extremist party whose leaders are notorious for their racist statements and for leading anti-white activism.
Malik Zulu Shabazz, NBPP national chairman, who has given scores of speeches condemning “white men” and Jews, confirmed his organization’s endorsement of Obama in an interview with WND today.
“I think the way Obama responded to the attack on him and the attempt to sabotage his campaign shows true leadership and character. He had a chance to denounce his pastor and he didn’t fall for the bait. He stood up and addressed real issues of racial discord,” stated Shabazz.
Speaking to WND, Shabazz referred to Obama as a man with a “Muslim background, a man of color.”
Shabazz’s NBPP’s official platform states “white man has kept us deaf, dumb and blind,” refers to the “white racist government of America,” demands black people be exempt from military service and uses the word “Jew” repeatedly in quotation marks.
The NBPP chairman was quoted at a May 2007 protest against the 400-year celebration of the settlement of Jamestown, Va., stating, “When the white man came here, you should have left him to die.”
When Shabazz was denied entry to Canada last May while trying to speak at a black action event, he blamed Jewish groups and claimed Canada “is run from Israel.”
Canadian officials justified the action stating he has an “anti-Semitic” and “anti-police” record, but some reports blamed what was termed a minor criminal history for the decision to deny him entry.
He similarly blamed Jews for then-New York Mayor Rudi Giuliani’s initial decision, later rescinded, against granting a permit for the Million Youth March.
The NBPP endorses Obama on its own page of the presidential candidate’s official site that allows registered users to post their own blogs.
The group labels itself on Obama’s site as representing “Freedom, Justice, and Peace for all of Mankind.” It links to the official NBPP website, which contains what can be arguably regarded as hate material.
The NBPP racked up 396 Obama campaign points, which purportedly are points given to users who raise funds, sign up other supporters or score high user ratings.
While it appears anyone can initially sign up as a registered supporter on Obama’s site, it isn’t clear whether the campaign monitors the site or approves users. There is a link on each blog page for users to report any abusers, such as those who post controversial entries, to the administrator.
