What The News Media Aren’t Telling You About The Baltimore Protests
Major news media outlets have failed to report that one of the main leaders of the “splinter group” of Baltimore protesters who turned violent is a notorious racist and the former national chairman of the New Black Panther Party.
The New York Times, the Associated Press, the New York Daily News, CBS Local, and other news media outlets all name Malik Shabazz as a leader of the breakaway, chaotic protests. Yet each of these news outlets only identify Shabazz as “president of Black Lawyers for Justice.”
Not one of news media outlet referenced above informed its readers what a simple Google search of “Malik Shabazz” reveals: Until October 2013, Shabazz served as the national chairman of the New Black Panther Party.
The NBPP is a controversial black extremist party whose leaders are notorious for their racist statements and for leading anti-white activism. The 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.
Shabazz has led racially-divisive protests and conferences, such as the 1998 Million Youth March in which a few thousand Harlem youths reportedly were called upon to scuffle with police officers, and speakers demanded the extermination of whites in South Africa.
The NBPP chairman was quoted at a May 2007 protest against the 400-year celebration of the settlement of Jamestown, Virginia, stating, “When the white man came here, you should have left him to die.”
He claimed Jews engaged in an “African holocaust,” and he has promoted the anti-Semitic urban legend that 4,000 Israelis fled the World Trade Center just prior to the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
Russia Helps Iran Avoid U.S. Fleet
The Russian navy has been aiding Iranian ships attempting to bring arms to the Tehran-backed rebels currently leading an insurgency in Yemen, according to informed Middle Eastern defense officials.
The officials said the Russian navy ships are attempting to maneuver to create a clear path for the Iranian vessels to bypass a U.S. fleet which is trying to prevent Iranian weapons from reaching the country.
The officials said Saudi Arabia, which backs the embattled Yemeni government, filed a complaint with Moscow about the purported Russian naval movements.
It was not immediately clear where the Russian navy was attempting such a maneuver.
According to reports, Russia’s navy last Sunday docked in Yemen and helped evacuate more than 650 people of different nationalities by air and by sea. One Russian navy ship reportedly took in more than 308 evacuees last Sunday while about 350 more were moved via two Russian aircraft.
The USS Roosevelt is reportedly tracking a convoy of Iranian ships currently heading to the Gulf of Aden, according to two defense officials speaking to USA Today on condition of anonymity.
Besides the Houthi insurgency, the Pentagon is also concerned about the Bab al-Mandab gateway off Yemen’s coast, which connects the Red Sea to the Gulf of Aden. More than three million barrels of oil are shipped daily to Europe, the United States, and Asia via the gateway.
Bolton: Hilary Clinton Can Kill Iran Negotiations If She Wants To
Hillary Clinton has the power to “capsize” the Obama administration’s nuclear negotiations with Iran by coming out against the talks as part of her presidential campaign, contended former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton during a radio interview Sunday.
While expressing doubt that she would risk opening hostilities with President Obama by opposing the negotiations, Bolton said it’s important to pay attention to how Clinton approaches the issue.
