Well, Babu Omowale is at it again. What – you don’t know who that is? Babu is becoming a real household name – if your household is full of members of the People’s New Black Panther Party, or otherwise a black militant. But I will assume you are not. I’m going to guess that not many members of the People’s New Black Panther Party are regular readers of the cracker known as the Common Constitutionalist.
Babu is the National Defense Minister for the aforementioned party. I actually did a segment on him and them in one of my more recent podcasts. You may link to it here.
Mr. Omowale is a self-professed black militant who claims his “party” wants to establish a “black nation” within America – encompassing five southern states – Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Alabama and Georgia.
In my podcast, I likened his desire of blacks to migrate to the states to reclaim their territory as being similar to the desire of ISIS, who also wish to reclaim territory for their own nation, the Caliphate.
I don’t know how it is going but I’m guessing this “new nation” business is one of those long-term goals.
You may then ask – what are his/their short-term goals? Well, it turns out one of the party’s short-term goals is to declare war. Babu is not real clear on who they wish to declare war on, so I’ll take a stab at it, considering his most recent declaration, and say it’s a war against cops.
He says: “Is it a war? Yes, it is. It’s a war against black people because we’re the ones being murdered. We are the ones being killed. So there’s been a war against us.”
He made these statements after the shooting of the black man in Milwaukee by a cop. Of course, the policeman was also black, but Babu either doesn’t know, or more likely, won’t mention it because that fact won’t advance his black militant agenda.
Babu spoke to Aaron Klein on radio and told him that, “What you see is people lashing out and fighting against the system. As it is said in the Second Amendment, you know. So this is not new. The people in this country have always defended themselves against tyranny. So I can liken this to a civil war.”
When it suits his purpose, Babu is more than willing to reference an amendment written by a white colonialist slave owner. The problem is that Babu is confusing the writing of one dead white guy with another. The Second Amendment, nor the Constitution says any such thing. I believe he is thinking of the Declaration of Independence. But… Tomato…Tomahto.
Going back to Babu’s point that black people are the ones being murdered – I agree with the Defense Minister. Blacks Are Being Murdered – but not Sylville Smith of Milwaukee.
I’m not a fan overall of police body cameras, but it worked in this case. The “black” police officers camera clearly showed that Smith (no relation) had a pistol (which was revealed to have been stolen – hello gun control) and was raising it toward the officer when the cop was forced to make a split-second decision to put him down. That Babu, is not murder. That is self-defense.
However, Babu is right about one thing. Blacks are being murdered at record levels – in the city of Chicago – by other blacks. Black on black murders are at historic levels and the overwhelming majority – easily over 90%, are committed by other blacks.
If Babu really wants to make a difference, maybe instead of migrating to the south, the Black Panthers should headquarter in Chicago and claim that territory. Maybe Mr. Omowale can “declare war” on black murders in the Windy City and leave the rest of us alone.
