General T.A.C.O. of the New Black Panther Party (NBPP) stunned you yesterday with his anti-white rantings and the bizarre claim that Caucasians deserve to be killed, dug up and killed again -- repeatedly. Today, we have another audio tidbit from the NBPP, with members substituting their often-times violent rhetoric to take some time and compare themselves to Jesus and Martin Luther King Jr., among others.
The broadcast, which features NBPP spokesperson Chawn Kweli and chairman Malik Zulu Shabazz, gives thanks to the "Black God" and pledges to continue the group's race-based fight.
"We give thanks to the Black God of our forefathers and fore-mothers by whatever names that you use," Kweli proclaims. "We give thanks to that one Black God for allowing us to be here and to fight and to mobilize and to organize and to keep struggling."
And he isn't done there. The spokesperson goes on to thank the "Black God" again, while also showering praise upon his "ancestors" and "freedom fighters." While it's somewhat unclear who, exactly, these sentiments are praising, as the conversation progresses, the bizarre notion that these men see themselves as akin to Biblical centerpieces becomes clear.
In Shabazz's own words, he's a victim who will be blessed by this so-called Black God for his ongoing actions. In fact, he sees his personal (though self-induced) struggle as being comparable to the plights that Jesus Christ and Paul faced.
"I am falsely accused and have been arrested but so has Jesus, so has Paul, Peter, Joseph and Muhammad," the NBPP leader says. "I will now be greater in the eye of God, because the Bible says 'blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.'"
Some, obviously, would question the "righteousness" of allowing people on the air who condone the repeated killing of other human beings. Furthermore, the notion -- as Shabazz claims -- that he and his fellow fighters are similar to Old Testament figures King David and Solomon and to Martin Luther King will certainly cause some angst (yes, those comparisons are made as well).
"God is using in us and our ancestors and has already made the arrangements and paid the price. Let us be professional and take the blindfolds off our people," he continues.
