On Thursday, members of the New Black Panther Party overran Ferguson, Missouri Police Chief Tom Jackson’s press conference. Jackson was supposed to address the ongoing violence in the area as a result of the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown on Saturday.
Instead, the leader of the New Black Panther Party, Hashim Nzinga, addressed the crowd that had gathered inside the Ferguson fire department. Interestingly, Nzinga primarily focused his rage at President Obama.
“This is a shame that as we speak the president of United States is talking to Russia, he’s talking to China, he’s talking to North Korea, he’s talking to Iraq and the Middle East about treating their people better,” Nzinga said. “But as he look out the window at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, he’s watching the black man, who built the White House, shot down like dogs.”

Nzinga went on to say it is not “Afghanistan” or “Islamic jihad” that poses the biggest threat to America but rather “these racist white folks” who are “running” the country.
Once the protestors took over the area, KTVI reported the police chief left the area.
Glenn was on radio this morning during the time authorities released the name of the officer who shot and killed Brown. Given the rhetoric from this video and others, Glenn questioned whether the revelation will actually make any difference in the way people like the Black Panthers, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and others react to the case.
“Do you think they care about how the bullet exited the police car? Do you think they are looking for justice? Do you think they will listen to any evidence,” Glenn asked. “No… You can't be afraid of the Black Panthers… You don't antagonize. You don't get in anybody's face, but you stand quietly – arm in arm – and say, ‘There’s more of us than you. You're bullies… And bullies always lose in the end.’”
