Former New Black Panther leader promises there will be violence at GOP convention

Former New Black Panther leader Malik Shabazz all but guaranteed there will be violence in Cleveland during the 2016 Republican National Convention.

“Malik Shabazz said today that there’s no way we are going to get through this convention without some kind of violence,” Fox News correspondent Mike Tobin reported Saturday.

The radical activist offered a few details of what to expect.

“From what I know many of the groups on the left, mainly the white left, and others … I know for a fact that there’s going to be the blocking of highways, and there’s going to be arrests and there’s going to be some things,” Shabazz said.

“I hear, that’s going to go on next week,” he added — the 3-day GOP convention kicks off on Monday. “It’s highly likely there’s going to be arrests, there’s going to be tear gas. It’s going to be happening.”

Shabazz was not above participating in events himself — and agitating the crowd — as he organized a black unity rally Saturday in downtown Cleveland, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

“Mr. Trump is an uncouth racist. But it’s not just Mr. Trump,” Shabazz told about 100 protesters on hand. “It’s an indictment on America. That a racist can be a hair away from being in the White House is an embarrassment for America.”

Not that the race agitator is any more pleased with presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

“Hillary Clinton and her slick, sly politicized speech … she isn’t that much better,” Shabazz said. “She’ll just kill you nicely.”
