Here are a few comments from Fox "Nation" in regard to Malik Shabazz's appearance on Fox"News". And it's a very fair assumption that these comments are directed at all blacks that oppose conservative ideology and how Fox approaches socio-political discourse.
I am starting to think we should never have ended slavery.

Since they are trying to shred the Constitution, how about the Emancipation Proclamation?

The realities of this alleged scandal and those propagating it are something that conservatives are not wanting you to understand. Granted, Shabazz is not a person that speaks for the bulk of blacks in America, but Fox"News" is most certainly devoting a great deal of time in formatting the narrative that he does. Unfortunately, it's working, despite the fact that the Bush DOJ refused to prosecute a similar case involving a member of the Minutemen:
....in 2006, the Justice Department "declined to bring any action for alleged voter intimidation" "when three well-known anti-immigrant advocates affiliated with the Minutemen, one of whom was carrying a gun, allegedly intimidated Latino voters at a polling place by approaching several persons, filming them, and advocating and printing voting materials in Spanish."
The reality of this story, for me at least, is that the two men at the polling station did not intimidate anyone from voting, and the limited allegations that were brought against them are completely unsubstantiated and specious at best. There was action brought against the man carrying the stick, but this simply doesn't satiate the conservatives that are out to portray not only the New Black Panther party as racist radicals, but the entire black race as such.
I will, however, openly offer this caveat - claiming that you have to kill a white person and their children is unacceptable and indefensible and no one in this country with even the most rudimentary of reasoning skills will claim that it is. However, Fox"News" is formulating the narrative that liberals and progressives think that this type of behavior can simply be passed over. In point of fact, they are wrong.
The case at hand is without merit, due to the fact that there has not been one person some forward to say that they were denied their ability to vote due to actions of the two members of the New Black Panther party. And while I disagree whole heartedly with the rhetoric displayed by the man that was holding the stick during a later episode, to conflate what he said then with what happened at the Philly polling station is more than a shade disingenuous.
