New Black Panther Leader Shabazz Blames FOX News For Voter Intimidation Scandal
What a shock.
The New Black Panther Party is blaming FOX News for their voter intimidation.
Via Breitbart TV:
Malik Zulu Shabazz says Fox News is trying to stir up racial fears and lying to the public. He tells Russian viewers that Fox News’ viewers are whites and “Confederates”. When whites say they want to “take their country back, we interpret that as meaning take our country back from this black man”.
Shabezz also challenged “Right-wingers” and the tea-party: “We’re ready to rumble”
Russia Today reported:
Members of the New Black Panther Party had allegedly intimidated voters who looked as if they may not vote for now US President Barack Obama, FOX News has been extensively covering the story.
Allegedly members of the New Black Panther Party positioned themselves outside of a polling station in Philadelphia with the intent to intimidate voters as they arrived to cast their votes during the 2008 presidential election.
“I have been predicting that the attack would increase as we go into the elections, because this whole so called voter intimidation controversy is just a tool by the Republicans,” said Dr. Malik Zulu Shabazz, the chairman of the New Black Panther Party.
Shabazz said he expects the attacks to increase and he expects to see ads featuring the New Black Panther Party as well as new allegations against them.
“They [Fox News] have no intention on being, as they say, fair and balanced. They want to paint us as extremists and they don’t want the truth to come out because they have political purposes,” said Shabazz.
He continued, later adding that “this is just part of the right wing paranoia in playing on racial fears, unfounded racial fears in every way. I say Fox News should be ashamed of themselves. We used to be on Fox for years, but now they won’t call us, but they like to talk about us but they are afraid to talk to me and us.”
