Former New Black Panther Party Chairman Malik Sulu Shabazz was speaking at a rally in Charleston, South Carolina, when he said what may be the most disgusting and inflammatory words to come out of the terrible tragedy at Mother Emanuel AME church. During his speech, he told a group of a couple hundred Africa-Americans that they needed to “finish the mission” of killing “slave masters” and their families!
Eagle Rising and our writers often get nasty emails telling us how we spread hate and other such similar nonsense because we openly air the things we believe. Yet, these same liberal trolls utter not a word when men like Shabazz go about their evil work. We have problems with policy, plans and the character of some of our leaders – but Shabazz literally calls for more violence in the wake of the senseless killings that have rocked the nation and liberals (including the media) say (and do) nothing.
In his speech, Shabazz recited some history, particularly a failed slave rebellion from 1822, then called on the crowd to finish what those slaves had started.
“Denmark Vesey had a plan to kill all the slave masters in the state,” Shabazz proclaimed. “Denmark Vesey had a plan to kill every last one of them and kill all of their goddamn families.”
Shabazz, whose remarks elicited applause, turned to current events, telling the audience: “We’re out of Denmark Veseys. And we need some new Demark Veseys today.”
Referring to the statements of Christian forgiveness made by many black leaders from Charleston, Shabazz delivered a stinging rebuke. “That which we saw in that church does not represent the spirit of Denmark Vesey,” he maintained. “They have betrayed Denmark Vesey.”
Later in the speech, Shabazz appeared to urge the crowd to finish the “mission” he had referred to earlier: killing white people in an uprising. “We got to complete what Denmark didn’t finish,” he insisted. “Denmark didn’t finish his mission.”
