At one point in his 2008 presidential campaign, Obama’s official website featured an endorsement, complete with the group’s logo, from the New Black Panther Party. Of course, the mainstream media refused to cover the story.
After growing complaints, on the heels of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright scandal, the endorsement was removed.
On March 19, 2008, Obama campaign spokesman Tommy Vietor told Fox News: “The page in question has been removed from our campaign Web site. It’s our policy with any content generated by a group that advocates violence.”
Upon removal of the endorsement, New Black Panther Party Chairman Malik Zulu Shabazz, told World Net Daily: “It's the game of politics. The Obama camp's move to remove our blog doesn't mean much because I understand politics. We still completely support Obama as the best candidate.”
The hyper racist and anti-Semitic Shabbaz, went on to say that Obama “is the best guy to bring the kinds of racial changes supported by our community at the New Black Panthers.”
