Clay Jenkins Hits the Wall in the Appointment of New Black Panther Party Founder

Categories: Schutze

It looks like Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins, long a puppet of Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price, finally has hit the Price wall. Jenkins has stopped action on the appointment of Price protégé Aaron McCarthy, aka Aaron Michaels, to the county's "homeland security advisory committee," whatever the hell that's supposed to be.

There is a Price wall. The most prominent marker for that wall is his sympathy for, consorting with and relentless promotion over decades of McCarthy, who is a founder of one of the nation's most virulently anti-Semitic hate groups, the so-called "New Black Panthers."

In 1990 Michaels, then a producer of a radio show for Price, helped found the group to take on school board issues in the city. The group was sued successfully by the original Black Panthers, who denounced it as a racist hate group and insisted it stop using the name, but a ruling in the plaintiffs' behalf has never been enforced.

Since its founding, the New Black Panther Party (NBPP) has spread into an organization with international chapters. One of its core tenets is that Jews are not Jews -- that the "real" Jews of the Bible are black people, who are God's "real" chosen people.

I have always kicked myself for not getting more of this stuff into print years ago when I first heard it from Commissioner Price himself. I didn't know what to make of it at the time and may have stupidly dismissed it as mere eccentricity born of a lack of formal education.

That's not what it is. It is evil, pure and simple. It is the evil that for 2,000 years has writhed out of the earth in pogroms and concentration camps. In its seed it bears the potential for metastasis into a global hatred for humanity itself -- for you, me, everybody, including black people in the end, because in the end hatred of humanity must hate all of humanity.

I hate reprinting some of what follows below. The words themselves are vile. But we need to know exactly what this group, long supported by Price, really believes and preaches. These quotes are taken from the website of the Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery, Alabama, the nation's most respected and quoted watchdog of hate groups.

NBPP leader Khalid Abdul Muhammad, speaking at a protest in Baltimore, Maryland, February 19, 1994: "Our lessons talk about the bloodsuckers of the poor. ... It's that old no-good Jew, that old imposter Jew, that old hooked-nose, bagel-eating, lox-eating, Johnny-come-lately, perpetrating-a-fraud, just-crawled-out-of-the-caves-and-hills-of-Europe, so-called damn Jew ... and I feel everything I'm saying up here is kosher."

Malik Zulu Shabazz, the party's national chairman, protesting at B'nai B'rith International headquarters in Washington, D.C., April 20, 2002: "Kill every goddamn Zionist in Israel! Goddamn little babies, goddamn old ladies! Blow up Zionist supermarkets!"

King Samir Shabazz, head of the party's Philadelphia chapter, in a National Geographic documentary, January 2009: "I hate white people. All of them. Every last iota of a cracker, I hate it. We didn't come out here to play today. There's too much serious business going on in the black community to be out here sliding through South Street with white, dirty, cracker whore bitches on our arms, and we call ourselves black men. ... What the hell is wrong with you black man? You at a doomsday with a white girl on your damn arm. We keep begging white people for freedom! No wonder we not free! Your enemy cannot make you free, fool! You want freedom? You going to have to kill some crackers! You going to have to kill some of their babies!"

I spoke to Price about this in the late 1980s when I was a member of the Dallas Times Herald editorial board. The paper had received complaints, not about Price but about other black activists in Dallas who were urging the city to force its pension funds to disinvest from South African companies. We were provided evidence that some speeches being made at Dallas City Hall by the activists contained passages plagiarized from the war-time anti-Semitic writings of Joseph Goebbels, Hitler's minister of propaganda from 1933 to the end of World War II.

I talked about it with Price. I was working on a book about the political and racial history of Dallas at the time. It was in that conversation he told me that "we don't know who the real Jews are."

I asked him where he thought the people most of us have always known as the Jews came from. He made a veiled reference to the 1960s book Chariots of the Gods, which promulgated a wacko theory about everybody in the Bible having come here in spaceships from another planet. He was not kidding.

I told him that in my research I was dealing with all sorts of instances in which prominent Jews in Dallas had stepped up and championed the cause of African-Americans long before the full advent of the Civil Rights Movement, at a time when speaking in defense of black people in Dallas was risky. I said I understood how black people could resent, even hate the whites who carried out slavery and Jim Crow, but I just didn't get the anti-Semitism.

He asked me what time period I was talking about. I said I was speaking of the late 1950s. He said that he would have been only 8 or 9 years old then. He said, "How am I supposed to know about anything like that?"

How, indeed? I guess you'd have to read something other than Chariots of the Gods.

Look, I said I kick myself for not having outted more of this sooner. And I do. I don't feel like a hero here. But I also can't avoid suggesting that Judge Jenkins could do the entire community a major solid by simply asking Commissioner Price and McCarthy-Michaels to expound on some of these matters in public and on the record.

Let's get it out. Let's get it all out.

It was the Arabs, not the Jews, that sold the captured Africans into world wide slavery.

Hahaha......keep the laughs coming you guys....I only have cable just to watch comedy central.....but hell....I'm canceling my subscription now!  FREE COMEDY forever on Dallas Observer!Thanks guys!

I can't help but wonder if some of you actually read the article before trotting out your best, well-worn hate-mongering harangues or if you were too busy masturbating to the possibility of the Jews and the Blacks eliminating one another in some holy ghost sanctioned cleansing of the Earth. 

Please, for the good of the species, just shut the hell up.

I've really grown tired of all this Dallas County politics and racial division and profiling.  From now on I'm going to judge people purely on the content of their character.  Is it just me or does JWP seem grumpy?

The SPLC sees anti-Semitism everywhere.  They and Abe Foxman seem to be on the same page.  They are both a bit hypersensitive in my opinion. 

I appreciate your reminder of Dallas' civil rights history and noble role the Jews here performed. However, this story doesn't issue out of a vacuum. Glenn Greenwald has written elegantly on the overuse of "anti-Semite" as it has grown to encompass any criticism of the US Israeli "special relationship." Those that want to see a normal relationship, both Jew and goy are tired of the charge.

I don't endorse the New Black Panthers, nor their peculiar view of history. However, we should be as outraged by all expressions of a chosen people, American Exceptionalism, Black Nationalism or La Raza. Tolerance and forbearance are required for all to live together harmoniously. But, from those who were the architects of Jim Crow and Israeli apartheid it's particularly problematic.

Where does Black Power threaten whole peoples, whole demographics? We should be more modest in our condemnations of these words, and see if we aren't guilty of the same sentiment, not feckless spoken, but ruthlessly enacted as bureaucratic policy.

Wow, had no idea such whack-jobs were active around here, sounds like a third-rate version of Nation of Islam anti-semitism to me.

Could this appointment have something to do with the late great satellite dishes that no one could seems to be able to find that were part of home land security and videos a while back?

Still wondering why no follow up by WFAA or other media? Were the dishes ever found?

Dear Jim:

Given your prior work in this area (e.g. "The Accommodation"), how does this come as a surprise to you.

The sad thing part about JWP is not that he is apparently quite racist in his viewpoints (though for some reason, AA's are given a pass on racism and the Caspers apparently can't do anything without being racist) but rather that there is a stench of corruption about the man and what he does.

From my viewpoint, it is not any one thing that says this about the man, but rather a continual series of near misses, innuendo, hearsay and observations that lead one to conclude that the man is likely to be corrupt and racist to boot.

Of course there is the famous recent outburst of "You are all white .. Go to hell."

Of course JWP and others have been given a pass on racist attitudes for many years.

I have to think that as the FBI investigation into JWP and his associates continues, that we will continue to see a slow erosion of support for JWP until he is left with no choice but to leave public office.

There was the article the other day about how AAs tend to receive harsher punishment than Caspers for public corruption.  Isn't Paul Fielding still in jail?  If he has been released, for how long did he serve his prison term?

Sincerely;

Paul

Was at Kuby's last week and waited in line behind an old guy who wasn't sure the bill was right and had the cashier recheck the items and make sure the on-sale discounts were applied.  I was in a hurry and visually annoyed.  When it was my turn to check out the cashier tried to explain the delay by saying "That old man.  He's Jewish."  As if this explained everything.  No more Kubys.

Yeah, cause we white people are totally defenseless against marauding mobs of Blacks looking for some retribution--except the cops, your many neighbors and those gates around your neighborhood.  That's why this fear is so stupid.  We can oppress them without even being aware of it, they can't even for trying.  It's called perspective and self awareness.

Yes and yes.They were out at John Price road and bridge district,this committee makes recommendations on purchases for homeland security.Arron is a hard working man very intelligent,when he started working John's radio show he started to believe every thing John Price was saying.Arrons comes from good christian family they became very concern about his action after meeting John Price. Arron has been back to his before Black Panther days for a long time now.

I wonder that too.  It sounds like the "homeland security advisory committee" might be in charge of that.  You rough up a reporter and everybody just backs off.

Hey dumb ass cracker (from a fellow cracker) you clearly didn't read the damn article HE ISN'T giving anyone a pass.

Now get of to your Klan meeting.

You're a embarrasement to my race. (Reading comprhension has never been strong among the white racists.)

No, I appreciate the quotes, I certainly agree those are egregious.  However, I have found SPLC to be a bit hypersensitive in the recent past.  I think political agendas are influencing their protestations in some cases.  This has tarnished their brand to some degree, and I don't automatically accept theirjudgment

Hey Grumpy ... might want to work on the reading comprehension skills just a little bit ...

I didn't say that JS was giving JWP a pass on the racism, in fact I am very glad that JS is finally taking JWP to task on racism ... I was saying that in general over the past, oh, 30 years or so AA leaders have made all sorts of racist remarks and are not held to task on the matter.

As JS said in his article:

"I have always kicked myself for not getting more of this stuff into print years ago when I first heard it from Commissioner Price himself."

BTW, I am a casper, not a cracker, though I did go to school in the heart of crackerland.

If I am a klucker as you seem to think, then I was the first one to register blacks to vote in Alabama.

Have a nice day.
