New Black Panther Party May 'Monitor' Polls

Monday, 05 Nov 2012 12:45 PM

The New Black Panthers are considering whether to “monitor” the election, the Philadelphia Daily News reported.

"I will say that as this election comes up in November, we will consider our options," Malik Zulu Shabazz, the group’s leader, told WABC Radio's "Aaron Klein Investigative Radio" show. "And we will consider the fact whether we will legally and lawfully go to the polls again to make sure there is no intimidation against our people, which was our intent in 2008."

The New Black Panthers has been labeled a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center and others for its anti-white and anti-Semitic rhetoric.

The group's Philadelphia leader, King Samir Shabazz, brandished the billy club in 2008 and was hit with a federal injunction, according to the Daily News. King Samir Shabazz has a profile on the site BlackPlanet.com, where he says: "I will not bow down to white Amerikkka.”

During the Republican National Convention in August, the New Black Panther Party claimed that Tampa was "under siege" by white people, Republicans, and Tea Partiers.
