Last week, a group of 10 white supremacists were arrested in an FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force operation in Orlando, Fla., for allegedly planning for an "inevitable race war." The supremacist group is accused of being armed "to the teeth" and conducting drills in preparation for a race war against blacks and Jews. They were allegedly targeting Orlando City Hall and other locations. They allegedly had also discussed making ricin, a deadly poison.
I say these people should be released and left alone until this same governmental task force or another with similar powers arrests members of the New Black Panther Party (NBPP), along with Jesse Jackson, and Al Sharpton. The NBPP called for 5,000 volunteers in Sanford, Fla., to help hunt down George Zimmerman, who shot and killed Trayvon Martin, a black teenager, in self-defense. They also made ominous overtures toward the Sanford Police and prosecutor Angela Corey, saying, "If the government won't do the job, we'll do it."
These threats should be taken seriously. There has been a spate of random police shootings in the last year; an unambiguous threat such as they made should have been taken seriously. They circulated a "Wanted Dead or Alive" poster of George Zimmerman, at a press conference. They placed a $10,000 bounty on the head of Mr. Zimmerman, which they raised to a million-dollar bounty. The monies for the bounty were solicited across state lines – they called on black professional athletes, actors and personalities to contribute to it.

The NBPP has openly called for the killing of "white babies." Michelle Williams, NBPP chief of staff in Tampa, told blacks on a conference call: "I just want to say to all the listeners on this phone call, that if you are having any doubt about getting suited, booted and armed up for this race war that we're in that has never ended, let me tell you somethin' … the thing that's about to happen [to] these honkies, these crackers, these pigs, these people, these motherf---ers … it has been long overdue. … I'm kinda pi--ed off right now that the state of Florida ain't on fire. This could not have happened in L.A. because them brothers up there are not scared to riot. This could not have happened in St. Petersburg, Florida, where the black man over there ain't scared to kill a cracker." (Courtesy of Breitbart.com; posted by Erica Ritz, April 8.
During the same conference call, Chawn Kweli, a NBPP national spokesman, said: "And there are those who wish they could stand in this hour, to see the destruction of the devil's world and the devil's society – and [I] ain't talking about no dude underneath the ground with a pitchfork and pantyhose. I'm talking about that blond-haired, blue-eyed, sometimes brown-eyed, Caucasian walkin' around with a mindset, a demonistic mindset, and a nature to do evil and brutality."
AL Sharpton and Jesse Jackson fomented anger and stoked the flames of violence during their rallies in Sanford. As Breitbart.com reported, the NBPP called for a race war and to "kill a cracker for Trayvon."
Hashim Nzinga, the NBPP leader who called for the vigilante capture of Mr. Zimmerman, was literally only hours later arrested for illegally being in possession of a firearm as a convicted felon – when he sold a high-end firearm to Stone Mountain Pawn Shop, in DeKalb County, Ga.

The NBPP has long called for killing whites, and yet the Obama White House and Justice Department either do not take these threats seriously or are not interested in protecting white people. Since Martin was killed, there have been many instances of blacks committing violent acts against whites and then making reference to the acts being "for Trayvon."
And yet the Obama administration has an FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force arrest a white supremacist group. I haven't heard about a white person killing, car-jacking, or attacking a black person and then saying that it is "for George Zimmerman."
This is the climate in which Fox News Channel is providing safe harbor for the avowed racist Jehmu Greene. Fox News has refused to return my phone calls or respond to emails by outraged, soon-to-be former viewers. Fox News has an obligation to show that they will not contribute to the teeming caldron of black racism.
We should not make room in America for racism and/or those who are working to incite racial discord. Nor should we be tolerant of a Jehmu Greene who has a long history of association with Marxist anarchist groups like ACORN – who not only harbor racist feelings but brazenly spew racist epithets in national public venues.
Fox has an obligation, at the very least, to suspend Greene without pay or never again make mention of a crime committed by a white person against a black. Just as the Obama administration must either release and apologize to the white supremacists arrested in Orlando or have the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force arrest the leadership of the NBPP, along with Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson.
