RUSH: Okay, audio sound bites, Malik Zulu Shabazz. He is the president of the New Black Panther Party. We’re going to do my TV show audio here first. We have two bites, but are they different times? Yeah, let me figure this out in just a second. Here’s what we do know. October 18th, 1995, Rush Limbaugh the TV Show from our archives, Malik Zulu Shabazz, chairman of what was then called ‘Unity Nation.’ It’s a cocktail party before the Million Man March and Malik Zulu Shabazz was talking about Newt.
SHABAZZ: Newt Gingrich, this Georgia cracker, telling Louis Farrakhan what to say! Newt Gingrich telling black people how to pick they (sic) leaders. I say, ‘To hell with Newt Gingrich!’ Let me hear you say that, ‘To hell with Newt Gingrich!’
FOLLOWERS: To hell with Newt Gingrich!
SHABAZZ: To hell with Newt Gingrich!
RUSH: That was it: ‘To hell with Newt Gingrich… this Georgia cracker telling Louis Farrakhan what to say.’ Okay, so that’s Malik Zulu Shabazz calling Newt Gingrich a ‘cracker’ before the Million Man March in 1995. Now, this next bite, date unknown, closed meeting, New Black Panther Party chairman Dr. Malik Zulu Shabazz spoke, and this is some of what he said.
SHABAZZ: They say, ‘You’re lucky, Mr. Shabazz, to be in America. I say, ‘You didn’t give me nothing in America.
MAN: That’s right. Come on!
SHABAZZ: I’m talkin’ to white America. You haven’t given me nothing in America.
MAN: That’s right!
SHABAZZ: If I have a constitutional right that right was derived by the labor of Harriet Tubman.
MAN: That’s right. Come on!
SHABAZZ: That right was derived by the labor of Frederick Douglass. it was derived by the labor of those who died in the lakes, rivers, brooks, and streams fighting for the constitutional rights —
MAN: That’s right!
SHABAZZ: — of our people. It was not given to us; we struggled for that right.
MAN: You talk that, man! That’s right! Come on, boy! Talk to us.
SHABAZZ: Do not come and tell me I have to be patriotic.
RUSH: That is Malik Zulu Shabazz, the New Black Panther Party president. Again, date unknown, location unknown. We don’t know when that was done. Another one. This was on Russia TV, which is taped and airs in the United States. New Black Panther Party Chairman Dr. Malik Zulu Shabazz is the guest. Unidentified anchor says, ‘I don’t know if you actually got a chance to see some of Fox’s coverage. Were you surprised that it popped up again and it was kind of an up-to-date every single hour?’
SHABAZZ: I make of it as just part of the, uhhh, right-wing paranoia and playing on racial fears — unfounded racial fears in every way. By stirring up racial fears you stir up the tea party. By stirring up racial fears you stir up the anti-Obama vote. Fox News’ audience is mainly whites, Republican or right-oriented whites, some independents, Confederates; includes some hard right-wingers and racist organizations, and so they have a — a base. It’s really the dissatisfied whites in America that are saying they want to take their country ‘back.’ We interpret that as meaning, ‘Take our country back from this black man’ (snickers) who happens to be the president, the not-so-subliminal message.
RUSH: All right, so that’s Malik Zulu Shabazz, who’s the president of the New Black Panther Party . Remember it was King Samir Shabazz — was his name Shabazz, too, yesterday? — the guy said he hates white people, going to kill the crackers and kill our babies. This was the guy who was doing voter intimidation in Philadelphia. Now, John Fund, Wall Street: ‘Who Will Investigate the Investigators? — — Another voter fraud scandal involving the Justice Department. J. Christian Adams [testified] before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights’ yesterday, and he talked about the Philadelphia Case and the New Black Panthers, but he talked about something new. ‘Mr. Adams leveled an even more explosive charge beyond the Panther case. He testified that last year Deputy Assistant Attorney General Julie Fernandes made a jaw-dropping announcement to attorneys in Justice’s Voting Rights section.
‘She said she would not support any enforcement of a key section of the federal ‘Motor Voter’ law — Section 8, which requires states to periodically purge their voter rolls of dead people, felons, illegal voters and those who have moved out of state. According to Mr. Adams, Justice lawyers were told by Ms. Fernandes: ‘We’re not interested in those kind of cases. What do they have to do with helping increase minority access and turnout? We want to increase access to the ballot, not limit it.” So we’re not interested in purging voter registration roles of dead people, felons, illegal voters, and people who moved out of state. We want to keep them on the rolls because we want to increase access.
So he was also told in addition to dropping the New Black Panther case to forget about Section 8 of Motor Voter, by the Obama Justice Department. Now, J. Christian Adams is also saying now that the real reason the New Black Panthers were at the polling site in Philadelphia doing the intimidating was to extract the poll watchers so that ACORN voters could vote without being challenged. This is the line attorney who quit after he was told to drop the case. He said that the intimidation was just a diversion tactic. It was to keep the poll watchers’ attention diverted to possible violence while ACORN voters snuck in there and voted perhaps illegally or what have you.
Quick time-out here, folks, as we are a little long.
RUSH: Do you happen to know what the given name — Malik Zulu Shabazz is not his name. He was not born Malik Zulu Shabazz. Wasn’t that Malcolm X’s name or wife’s or mother? (interruption) Okay, Malcolm X is the link to Shabazz. Malik Zulu Shabazz was born Paris Lewis in Los Angeles. Very European first name. Paris Lewis was born in 1968 in Los Angeles. Now, I have the ADL, the Anti-Defamation League has a bio of Paris Lewis, a/k/a Malik Zulu Shabazz, born in ’68 in Los Angeles, resides in Washington. Organization: New Black Panther Party, black lawyers for justice. Education: Bachelor of Arts Howard University, J.D. Howard University law school 1995. Now, listen. This is what the ADL lists as his ideology: militant black nationalism, racism, and anti-Semitism. That’s the ADL, the Anti-Defamation League, but I mean — (interruption) yeah, he was a former spokesman for Marion Berry. This is absolutely true. Paris Lewis, the former spokesman for — uh, I mean Malik Zulu Shabazz, the former spokesman for Marion Berry.
