Here’s the irony about the Constitution: it doesn’t matter if you believe in it or fully accept it, it still protects you. That’s the case with one Black Panther supporter at the University of Minnesota-Duluth. During an exchange with a Constitution-loving student on campus on Sept. 16, the Black Panther supporter said that he could “exercise” his 2nd Amendment right against his fellow student while also admitting later that he doesn’t actually believe in the Constitution.
It all happened while Phil Cleary was passing out Constitutions in honor of Constitution Day. Campusreform.org (which calls Cleary a “conservative) reports he had a table of literature promoting Western Civilization (and his group Youth for Western Civilization) and was engaging students and faculty on the topic. While doing that he had conversation with someone the site identifies as Blair Jordan Moses, the young man with a soft spot for the Black Panthers.
And Cleary got it on video.
According to the video, the supporter tells Cleary that the 2nd Amendment could come in handy if Clearly ever threatened the campus multicultural center. What would constitute a threat? He never truly defines it, but “suggested that the existence of the group Youth for Western Civilization would count,” according to Campusreform.org.
But the video gets odd once the supporter admits later that “I don’t even believe in the Constitution.” And it gets even more odd when a middle-aged woman approaches Cleary and his table and asks, “Is this a white supremacist group?” and comments that “it looks like one.”
You can watch the events unfold below:
According to Campusreform.org, the woman in the video who asked about white supremacists is allegedly Susana Pelayo – Woodward, director of the Office of Cultural Diversity on campus. The Blaze sent an e-mail to Pelayo-Woodward asking her to confirm it was her in the video and asking her to share any concerns about Cleary’s group with us. We did not immediately receive a response.
You can visit the Youth for Western Civilization website to determine for yourself if it is a white supremacist group.
As for Moses — the alleged young Black Panther supporter — there is a Twitter account that supposedly belongs to him. You can get a sense for who he is by reading his recent tweets:
