Conspiracy Theory: Racist Group Behind Zimmerman Trial
To most, the New Black Panther Party (NBPP) is a fringe group big on PR but low on influence. But a “Fox & Friends” guest now claims that the NBPP were behind the media coverage the George Zimmerman trial received, and that it never would have gone to court if the Panthers hadn’t pushed the right buttons behind closed doors.
We’re sure it wasn’t because the whole nation developed a personal connection to Trayvon Martin’s tragic story or anything…
J. Christian Adams, the right-wing blogger, author, and the Fox News guest who called out the Black Panther connection, has long looked for excuses to attack the NBPP. He once accused the Panthers of intimidating voters outside voting booth stations. Much to his chagrin, and that of other conservative figures, Obama didn’t look into the matter. Now Adams is sure that the NBPP is up to further shenanigans.
According to Adams, in “evidence” he laid forth in a piece for conservative website Breitbart, the radical group intimidated the Sanford authorities into prosecuting Zimmerman. Yes, a fringe group pressured a law enforcement agency into prosecuting Zimmerman… by threatening them with violence. (The city of Sanford has never mentioned such allegations, which shows how unfounded they are.)
The pressure and threats of mob violence turned out to be so great, that even Attorney General Eric Holder was forced to act. The Justice Department, under the NBPP’s directives (at least, according to Adams), is reportedly considering civil rights charges against Zimmerman.
All of this is, no doubt, part of elaborate scheme by the New Black Panthers to push forth their agenda. The NBPP, for their part, haven’t bothered to respond to these off-the-wall allegations.
