During a recent episode of the New Black Panther Party’s Black Power Radio, Shabazz predicted that coming events “that are gonna seem tragic to white America and may even shock our own consciences,” including the killing of police officers.
During the presentation, Shabazz, who is listed as an extremist by the Southern Poverty Law Center, stated that:
Mister Malcolm X, he consistently teaches us self-defense. The most honorable Elijah Muhammad continuously teaches us self-defense. The honorable Marcus Mosiah Garvey teaches us self-defense, and we know, our leader and our teacher, the honorable Khalid Abdul Muhammad, teaches us self-defense.
What am I saying? Right now it’s time to build up that army. Right now it’s time for us to build up those corps, those troops. It’s time to get strong. It’s time for lifting weights and working out and going to the gun range and all of that.
Those are the parts that we can take care of then then there are going to be things that are outside our control that are going to seem calamitous that are going to seem tragic to America and white America. It may even shock our own consciousness. But some people are tired of everything I just said. Some people are tired or not patient enough to deal with everything I said and some people are tired of seeing our people killed and murdered.
And therefore, these people who we know nothing about, we have no connection to, we only them on the news, we don't know how they were inspired. But we know they are going to be killing some people in 2015. And unfortunately, police officers are going to be killed. As a result of killing us, they have inspired people in the population to go off and retaliate against them. They have nothing to do with us, but it just happened. It happened in 2014. It happened in 2013.
And sadly because America won't do justice to black people, more and more people are going to lose balance and go off, and so we're going to have funerals. Mike brown gonna have funerals. Romain Brisban had to have his funeral, my brother in Ohio, all over the country. Eric Garner in New York. All over the country, we're having our funerals, but now they must put on their dress blues and have their funerals, too. It's a helluva day in this hour.
His rhetoric is merely encouraging the criminal element to have no fear, and inciting them to further violence. This does not bode well, nor will it end well.
