ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – The FBI is concerned members of the New Black Panther Party are in Ferguson, Missouri and advocating violence against police, according to an alert from the St. Louis Division of the FBI, reported KTVI.

Chawn Kweli, National Chief of Staff for the NBPP is in town, along with other members, to respond to the shooting of Michael Brown.

The St. Louis suburb of 21,000  has been  wracked by violence as outraged protesters demonstrated over the 18-year-old’s shooting faced off with police.

As federal civil rights investigators and the FBI carry out their own inquiry into the case, tensions are running high in Ferguson, where there’s a history of distrust between the predominately black community and the largely white police force.

Brown was African-American. Police have not identified the shooter, but a witness told CNN on Tuesday that the officer who opened fire is a Caucasian male.

Kweli posted on Facebook , “This is the hour all the greats promised.  If you die, die like a warrior.  I’ll see you on the ground.”

He is posting updates from  Ferguson under the tag: Live Battle Report.

The website for the New Black Panther Party is here.   The group, founded in 1989, is not an official successor of the Black Panther Party, according to the Huey P. Newton Foundation.  Members of the original Black Panther Party have insisted that the newer party is illegitimate and said that hey only “pretend to walk in the footsteps of the Party’s true heroes.”

They have firmly declared, “There is no new Black Panther Party” and condemned the new groups use of the name.

    Oh, Pu-leeeeze! The FBI “warns” of the New Black Panthers?
    It was probably Holder that called them in as reinforcements. All the other Democratic Racial arms and armies are active and in place, on site. Back up required. There is just not enough chaos, turmoil and conflict, yet. The Feds are slower than the locals in “investigating” “Injustice”, again. Wonder why? This has turned into yet another Government Media Circus Campaign Production to Forward Agenda. The Most Intelligent, Legal Eagle, Nobel Peace Prize Winner, President and Commander-in-Chief…spreading his belligerent illegal, lawlessness, mayhem and
    anarchy Domestically as well as World Wide, with our money to support it all. See the covert paramilitary actions with Federal Military Weapons and Equipment?
    Command & Control transferred to Democratic Media Operatives. Obama is on Vacation.
    Guess the Mission, Goal, and Objective. The more desperate he becomes, the
    more dangerous he becomes.

    I smell an excellent opportunity for just what Farrakhan, Jackson and Sharpton have wanted for years…war. Now let’s see if they have the guts for it.

  • Matt

    Jesse Jackson, Al Sharptown & Farrakahn are all grown men. You whiteys always commenting when they come around. They’re grown men, they go wherever they wanna go. Yall whiteys are mad because no one come to you. The officer was wrong & that’s that. Shut the phuck up & stop bytching so much. Bytch a$$ white boys.

    • Robbie

      Somewhere out there in the black community a cell phone or two has the whole incident on tape. The reason it hasn’t surfaced is because the officer is telling the truth. Your description of the three men I mentioned is correct. You just got the racist part wrong. Those three are the biggest racists in this country. They ignore the fact that blacks killing blacks is an epidemic. They fan the flames of racism and if they aren’t careful, the war the want may not have the results there looking for. You mark my words, if blacks start killing whites as a result of this, game on.

      Uh huh, us white people? Maybe the “white cops” should leave as well as white business owners and every other white person. Oh yeah and pull all white people tax money. Who will support your lazy, no working a$$? Dipsh*t

      WOW, you sound like someone it would be just a joy to be around.
      So open minded, with the ability to get your message across without being disrespectful.
      People must go out of their way just to listen to your bigoted rants.
      I bet, with you outlook on life, you are currently unemployed and blaming “the oppressor” for YOUR FAILURE!
      Right, go to the PLANTATION MASSER (the Government) to take care of you, give you a roof over your head and folding cash for your pocket.
      God Bless you and I do hope that you can turn your Hatred into positive actions to help your community.

    If the NBPP was a white organization they would be labeled domestic terrorist. However because they are black, they get away with the anti Semitic, racist activity and rhetoric. Hey all black racist MF. Stop being a victim start taking responsibility for your lack of accountability in the family. Get a fucking job and education stop banging and thugin because your to lazy to get a real job like the rest of the real Americans in this country. Wanna stop the racism? Look in the fucking mirror.

    In 2012, the latest complete FBI statistics on crime, law enforcement agencies reported that 3,297 single-bias hate crime offenses were racially motivated. Of these offenses: 66.1 percent were motivated by anti-black bias, 22.4 percent stemmed from anti-white bias, 4.1 percent resulted from anti-Asian/Pacific Islander bias, 4.1 percent were a result of bias against groups of individuals consisting of more than one race (anti-multiple races, group), and 3.3 percent were motivated by anti-American Indian/Alaskan Native bias. (Based on Table 1.) http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/hate-crime/2012/topic-pages/incidents-and-offenses/incidentsandoffenses_final

    The statistics are Comparable to 2012 going all the way back to 1995, when the FBI began collecting this data.

    Barrack Obama should be arrested for Treason, today. Not impeached, not investigated, and not talked about.

    Mass to be held for slain US journalist Foley.

    Foley was kidnapped on Thanksgiving Day 2012 while covering the Syrian uprising.

    At a vigil Saturday night in Rochester, about 200 people gathered to show support for the Foley family. Foley’s parents, John and Diane Foley, attended, Foster’s Daily Democrat reported.

    The United States has practically forgotten Foley, famous for telling the stories of oppressed people in war-torn regions like Syria and Libya.

    “Tonight we want to honor freedom and love: the freedom that James so vehemently believed that all people deserved,” said Nadia Alawa, founder of NuDay Syria, a Massachusetts-based organization working to ease the pain and loss in Syria. “To James Foley, denying others freedom and a basic voice of feelings and free space was not OK.”
    She also condemned the campaign of terror and violence carried out by the Islamic State.
    ” The ISIS thrives on using the name of Islam to justify their vengeful acts that targets

    innocent non-Muslims as well as Muslims for no apparent, rational reasons,” Alawa said. “As a Muslim, I refuse to let terrorists take my religion as hostage.”

    The Muslim Brotherhood, the Hamas, the Al Qaeda and every Radical Islamic Terrorist Group is just like the ISIS, they justify their murder and their bombings as they justify their Sharia Law, which is a violation of the Human Rights of every woman and child in the world. The CIA should not work with Terrorist organizations like the Al Qaeda, even in Syria. We do not have diplomatic relations with Syria and it is none of our business what happens inside Syria, we should allow nations that do have diplomatic relations with Syria to work with Syria to solve their problems. Bombing or sending troops in should not be an option, we are not the world police.

    If we believe the legal government of Syria or groups in Syria are doing something illegal there are channels to go through that do not include giving money to Terrorists, training and arming Terrorists or bombing or in other ways violating the laws of the Untied States.

    We are one.

    Violence against any man, woman, or child is violence against the United States way of life.

    The United Nations allows many of the Muslim Nations represented by it and some of the nations of the United Nations Human Rights Council operate under Sharia Law.

    No Incumbents.

    The Black Panther Party was a Terrorist Organization.

    Keeping the name makes me doubt the New Black Panther Party is anything else.

    Al Sharpton since his first speeches has always chose to spread hate.

    In our world you can with each word and with each action share love in our world or do something evil.

    Al, Barry, and Eric have not shown themselves willing to share love in our world.
