New Black Panthers threaten to kill white people on Twitter
Sunday night, the St. Petersburg/Tampa, Florida chapter of the New Black Panther Party issued tweets calling for the death of white people.
"Kill these racist honkeys, these crackers, these pigs, these pink people, It has been long overdue!" the group said on Twitter.
About a minute later, the group issued another threatening message.
"Now It Is Time To Stand Up And Fight Back There Are No Good Crackers, And If You Find One, Kill Him Before He Changes, (sic)" the group tweeted.
The group also threatened a showdown at the upcoming Republican convention.
Ironically, the group sent a message claiming not to be racist.
Threats of racial violence against white people are standard fare for the organization that has been labeled a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
In May, King Samir Shabazz, the National Field Marshal for the New Black Panther Party, called for racial violence against on his national radio program.
"I love black people, and I hate the g*****n white man, woman, and child, grandma, aunt, uncle, Pappa Billy Bob, and whoever else," he said. "Redneck Tom and Blueneck Robert, and whoever else you wanna name. I hate the white man. I hate the very look of white people. I hate the sound of white people. G******it, I hate the smell of white people. I hate the oppression of white people, I hate the murder and the rape and the torture and the taking away of our names, our culture, our God, our music and d**n, I hate this cracker for everything he has done to us,” he added.
In April, the organization called for bloodshed while discussing a "day of action" protest.
The group also put out a $10,000 bounty on the head of George Zimmerman, the Hispanic neighborhood watchman on trial for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
"Of course," Jim Hoft wrote at the Gateway Pundit, "if these threats were coming from some white racist group this would actually be a national story.
