Babu Omowale, the so-called national minister of defense for the People’s New Black Panther Party, says his group and allied organizations have their sights set on establishing “our own government in a nation within a nation”:
“The end game is land ownership. The endgame is our own government in a nation within a nation. Okay. So we claim the states of Louisiana, … Mississippi, … South Carolina,… Alabama, and… Georgia. We just need to start migrating back to those states and taking control of the economics in those states. If black people move in, most definitely white people will move out. So it’s not a hard process for us to have our own country within a country.”
“There is no way that we can totally separate ourselves in the United States of America and we are aware of that. We know that we are owed land, we are owed monies, we are owed restitutions and we are owed reparations. That’s going to be a continuing process. What we are saying right now is we want to control the economics in our community. We want to control the black dollars. The money that goes in, the money that goes out.”
Omowale is also co-founder of the Huey P. Newton Gun Club, a black militant gun group named after Black Panther Party founder Huey P. Newton. According to reports, Dallas shooter Micah X. Johnson “liked” the Huey P. Newton Gun Club and Omawale has said that he recognized Johnson from black community events in Dallas.
March by the Huey P. Newton Gun Club in March 2015:
Members of the Huey P. Newton Gun Club, held rifles as they chanted violent anti-cop statements while walking the streets of Austin, Texas. Infowars reporter Lee Ann McAdoo speaks to the groups spokesperson to try and understand what their message really is.
The group chanted several anti-police slogans including, “A pig is a pig that’s what I said, the only good pig is a pig that’s dead” and “Oink! Oink! Bang! Bang!” while heading towards the Texas Capitol.
According to a press release, the group, also referred to as an “Armed United Front,” is composed of multiple black organizations including “Black Lives Matter,” a movement funded heavily by billionaire George Soros.
