Why the Latest Zimmerman Race Riot Conspiracy Theory Is the Dumbest Yet (We've all been duped! LOL)
Mother Jones ^ | July 12, 2013 | Stephanie Mencimer

Posted on 07/12/2013 11:47:22 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

New Black Panther Party leader Malik Zulu Shabazz

The conservative blogosphere is brewing with ominous warnings about the inevitable riots they think will come if George Zimmerman is acquitted of charges related to his killing of unarmed teen Trayvon Martin. (My colleague Lauren Williams has rightly questioned this mania here.) An email this week from Everett Wilkinson, a former tea party leader in Florida who now runs something called the Nation Liberty Federation, outlines many of the leading (and recurring) conspiracy theories about the verdict's aftermath, which he naturally thinks will include riots: martial law. FEMA camps. But he offers up some of the new ones, too.

Among those is the suggestion that the New Black Panther Party is busing people to Florida for the specific purpose of inciting riots after Zimmerman presumably walks out of court a free man. Wilkinson writes:

Reports have come in from eye witnesses in Sanford, Florida that the New Black Panther Party, an extremist group that has called for the killing of George Zimmerman if he is found not guilty, is busing in thousands to that town. Sanford is the location of the trial and near the place where the shooting of Trayvon Martin by Zimmerman occurred. There have been threats of riots if Zimmerman is not found guilty and it is believed that the New Black Panther Party and other extremist groups will attempt to take advantage of racial tensions after a non guilty verdict by organizing riots.

Wilkinson points out that the New Black Panthers supposedly put out a "dead or alive" poster with Zimmerman's face on it last year—proof that the "eye witnesses" in Sanford must be right. He writes ominously, "When Zimmerman was first arrested the Black Panthers threatened to burn the whole state of Florida down." Wilkinson suggests that the Obama administration might be bringing in Russian soldiers to fight off the angry mobs (through FEMA, naturally), a claim that follows on the heels of his suggestion earlier this year that Russian intelligence was warning that President Obama was creating teams of "death squads," a story that originated on a hoax website.

Clearly Wilkinson doesn't know much about the New Black Panthers aside from the overhyped reports about them on Fox News during the past few presidential campaigns. For one thing, they probably don't need a bus. Most of their members could fit in a taxi. And they're not especially good at organizing anything, even voter intimidation. Their erstwhile leader, Malik Zulu Shabazz, got his start in DC in the 1990s while at Howard University's law school, running as a candidate for the DC city council and trying to organize boycotts of Korean merchants in DC's poor, black neighborhoods. His first moment in the limelight came after he organized anti-Semitic chants at a Howard rally in 1994. Shabazz was good at getting himself in the news and not much else. Little has changed in that regard since 1995, when now-Slate editor David Plotz wrote this seminal profile of the guy. (A sampling: "Seated in the tiny chair in the tiny room, Shabazz looks somewhat like an overgrown schoolboy—an impression magnified by the large zit erupting beneath his right nostril.")

The reports and emails from Nation Liberty Federation vastly overestimate the potential of the Panthers to mobilize people. The Panthers themselves tweeted recently that even they don't think they could organize the kind of chaos conservatives warn about, saying, "If Zimmerman is acquitted there is likely to be unrest all over America. It will be way beyond the capacity of the NBPP." (The NBPP tweet that they will not be engaging in any unlawful activity, either.)

The Nation Liberty Federation's rhetoric suggests that if there are going to be riots after a verdict, the people we might want to be worried about are the white ones. Wilkinson, who is white, has some advice for readers on protecting themselves against "flash mobs":

The obvious things you need are firearms, ammunition, maps, food, water, full tank of gas and/or “Bug Out Bag Survival Bag” and/or “Urban Survival Kit.” I would also highly recommend a CB radio or ham radio because the cell phone towers may be overloaded or shut off.

One of the reason's why Americans beat the British is because they organized as militia units. Remember also Korean shop owners that protected their shops during the LA riots. We must learn to work as teams. Talk to your friends and family and come up with a plan to protect as a unit.

We are expecting martial law declared, similar to Boston or Katrina Hurricane, in any area affected by riots or that Obama feels wants to control. Unless you like the idea of spending anytime in a FEMA Camp, I would recommend bugging out of the area at the first sign of unrest if you live in an infected area. Plan on having to be on the the move within 15 minutes of an riot…

Don’t be surprised if Russian or other foreign troops come to help the DHS! Rumor has it that Obama has positioned at least 15,000 Russian troops.

If you find yourself in the immediate area of a “flash mob,” riot or protest, leave immediately. This is not the time to be hero or argue. You will only become a victim. Hopefully you have a firearm to defend yourself, but you need to use it to help you extract from the area. In other words, "shoot, scoot and run.”

It wouldn't take many paranoid, angry gun owners to create a bloodbath in Florida after a Zimmerman verdict, a prospect that seems far more frightening than Malik Shabazz and a cab full of New Black Panthers.

"It wouldn't take many paranoid, angry gun owners to create a bloodbath in Florida after a Zimmerman verdict"

After describing fears of rioting as absurd and paranoid, she postulates CONSERVATIVE riots. But the author can't point to a conservative riot in this country in her lifetime or for many years before. In fact, I'm not aware of ANY.

The author of this little tripe is Stephanie Mencimer, there is a picture included. Sorry, but Stephanie? looks more like Stephan, and worry about riots is exaggerated? What in the history of Blacks being unhappy with a verdict would lead she/he to the opinion that a possibility of riots and looting is exaggerated.

Lol, totally made up stuff. Any of those types of rumors would have made an appearance here and they havn’t.

Prediction though — Zimmerman found guilty of manslaughter, later overturned on appeal.

They [them, those] want a conviction at any cost and any price, they don’t care about it being overturned ... as long as they get their conviction. That’s my theory in explaining the obvious heavy handed approach at both the judge and prosecution.

WaddaTwit. I guess we should all be surprised any time the Black "community" riots, rapes, pillages, loots, murders, because lack of surprise over the obvious equates to being a "paranoid, angry gun owner". I'd say that blood in the streets might wake people up. It might also incite another revolutionary war because of the current "Let no crisis go to waste" mentality of the despots in D.C.

The author dwells on the largely irrelevant fact that the NBP is too small to do much damage by itself and ignores the vast reservoir race hatred and racism against whites that will be triggered by the innocent Zimmerman not being railroaded by the Kangaroo Court in Sanford.

For instance, there were 14 whites murdered by blacks in the USA in racially motivated attacks in the month of May 2012. This was just after the Corrupt Liberal Media and racist black demagogues had created a National Lynch Mob to railroad Zimmerman;

http://blackracismandracehatred.blogspot.com/2012/06/hate-crimes-for-month-of-may-from-best.html

We may not see any major riots if Zim’s innocence is upheld but this “low intensity warfare” by some blacks against whites will continue and even accelerate.

"riots"

All riots by white people that I can remember in the last 50 years have been by radical leftists. Those are the people who populate the offices of Mother Jones and other radical leftist rags. Pardon me if I don't recall this scribbler bemoaning the destruction of property by radical leftists in Seattle and other places.

Just because I haven't seen it on these threads.

White Riot

White riot - I wanna riot
White riot - a riot of my own
White riot - I wanna riot
White riot - a riot of my own

Black people gotta lot a problems
But they don't mind throwing a brick
White people go to school
Where they teach you how to be thick

An' everybody's doing
Just what they're told to
An' nobody wants
To go to jail!

White riot - I wanna riot
White riot - a riot of my own
White riot - I wanna riot
White riot - a riot of my own

All the power's in the hands
Of people rich enough to buy it
While we walk the street
Too chicken to even try it

Everybody's doing
Just what they're told to
Nobody wants
To go to jail!

White riot - I wanna riot
White riot - a riot of my own
White riot - I wanna riot
White riot - a riot of my own

Are you taking over
or are you taking orders?
Are you going backwards
Or are you going forwards?

If martin’s supporters go in the streets and burn cars, stores, houses, break windows, steal merchandise, drag innocent Whites from cars and assault them, the ‘justice’ department will do NOTHING to stop it.

But is one White is out in the streets trying to defend himself, ‘law enforcement’ will arrest him, beat him, shoot him, and/or lock him up.

BTW, the riots are ongoing. Flash mobs. Roving hordes of savages talking into their obamaphones attacking any White who happens to be nearby. And ‘law enforcement’ deliberately does nothing about it.

Yes.

And I am ABSOLUTELY certain that her cultural background and upbringing makes her an expert on the current “urban and black” situation in Sanford FLA.

After all, she is a white, collge graduate raised in a white upper-middle class home in the suburbs (AKA: “creepy-ass cracker”).

I have the feeling that Rachel Jeantel wouldn’t give her the time of day before “breaking her boot off in her cracker ass”...seriesly.

So, too, does she ignore the influence of the NBPP in the urban atmosphere. Many frustrated urbanites will latch on to any perceived leader so as to pursue their own concept of “justice” in their plight.

In reality, brutha just needs a job.

“A useful idiot”

Yep, and just like every useful idiot of the left she doesn’t realize how much info she’s given out as to what the left’s game plan is.

She was given instructions to write this piece but in doing so she’s thrown open the left’s entire playbook for anyone to see.

The left isn’t just planning on race riots taking place now, they are planning a second set of race riots several weeks down the road.

Notice how she writes anyone off as a right wing kook that would “bug out” of the cities.

She also brings up Katrina.

Let’s look at the “Katrina Affect” because people didn’t leave.

Because the people of NO didn’t leave there was a total breakdown of law.

A couple of weeks after Katrina there was another hurricane called Rita.

People had seen what had happened with Katrina and didn’t want to be caught in anything like it so millions of people tried fleeing ahead of hurricane Rita all at the same time.

It looked like something from a Sci-Fi movie with traffic backed up for 100 miles or more.

You have race riots now and the people that don’t leave will have the fear put in them

A few weeks later you orchestrate more race riots and because people don’t want to be caught up in the riots they begin to flee the cities in one big mass panic.
