Remember the ginned up fake hysteria from the media when an armed black man showed up at a tea party rally some years ago, which NBC edited to to support their anti-Obama racism angle? The media quickly rushed to call it racist when it clearly wasn’t.
So with that in mind, let’s see how they portray a band of armed Black Panthers demonstrating without a permit. We surmise they won’t have a problem with this, at all.
The Revolutionary Black Panther Party of Wilmington raised concerns among local officials this week when it announced its plans to host an “armed human rights march and armed freedom ride” Sunday in Wilmington.
Mayor Bill Saffo is concerned about attendees possibly being armed, but is confident Sunday’s march will pass without incident.
“I don’t think there’s a reason to come armed to an event. … If there’s an altercation with somebody, in the heat of the moment a tragedy could happen,” Saffo said, adding, “If you want to picket or you want to demonstrate in the City of Wilmington, it’s your right to do that, but you’re not allowed to bring a gun.”
According to North Carolina general statue, it is unlawful for any person participating in, affiliated with, or present as a spectator at a parade, funeral procession, picket line or demonstration to “willfully or intentionally possess or have immediate access to any dangerous weapon.” Jim Varrone, the Wilmington Police Department’s assistant chief, explained those laws to organizers, according to a police spokeswoman.
City Councilman Earl Sheridan said the march is an example of a group demonstrating its First Amendment-protected rights to freedom of assembly and will likely take place without any problems.
“I think a lot of times when people hear that name, they have a knee jerk reaction, whatever it is,” Sheridan said. “I don’t have that knee jerk reaction. I don’t think it’s necessarily going to leave any problems for Wilmington.”
We have no problem with anyone demonstrating. But we suspect these clowns are agitating for a confrontation and the left with gleefully go along with them.
