Choosing to double-down instead of dial it down as the racial powder keg is about to blow, the militant group the New Black Panthers are planning on an armed presence in Cleveland next week for the Republican party convention. Considering that Quicken Loans Arena is already going to be a zone of extreme volatility with communist anti-Trump demonstrators, DNC sanctioned troublemakers, Black Lives Matter rabble and the looming possibility that the establishment will double-cross it’s own nominee the last thing that is needed is an armed group of extremists. This is the same crew that recently declared that it wanted to infiltrate and take over five southern states with the intent of one day setting up their own government within the country.

As reported by Reuters “New Black Panther Party says to carry arms in Cleveland if legal”:

The New Black Panther Party, a “black power” movement, will carry firearms for self-defense during demonstrations in Cleveland ahead of next week’s Republican convention if allowed under Ohio law, the group’s chairman said.

The plan by the group could add to security headaches for the Ohio city after last week’s killing of five police officers in Dallas by a U.S. army veteran who had been drawn to black separatist ideology, including on Facebook, before hatching his plan to target white police officers.

Several other groups, including some supporters of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, have said they will carry weapons in Cleveland, leading to concerns about rival groups being armed in close proximity.

“If it is an open state to carry, we will exercise our second amendment rights because there are other groups threatening to be there that are threatening to do harm to us,” Hashim Nzinga, chairman of the New Black Panther Party, told Reuters in an interview.

“If that state allows us to bear arms, the Panthers and the others who can legally bear arms will bear arms.”

Nzinga condemned the Dallas shootings as a “massacre” and said his group played no role in the attack.

Police in Dallas, where Texas’s “open carry” law allows civilians to carry guns in public, said seeing multiple people carrying rifles led them initially to believe they were under attack by multiple shooters.

Officials in Ohio have said it will be legal for protesters to carry weapons at demonstrations outside the convention under that state’s gun laws.

While open carry is deemed to be legal at the convention what this move represents is an unnecessarily provocative escalation by a group that is so racist that even the screaming at the top of it’s lungs liberal Southern Poverty Law Center has defined them as:

The New Black Panther Party is a virulently racist and anti-Semitic organization whose leaders have encouraged violence against whites, Jews and law enforcement officers.

Considering the amount of virulent anti-white sentiment that has been expressed over the past week as well as the media having successfully demonized Trump and his supporters as racists for months so as to put their thumb on the scale for Hillary this could get really ugly. Considering the obviously provocative move it would be wise for law enforcement – and especially the feds – to begin to look into the potential that the New Black Panthers are crossing state lines with the intent to incite riots and engage in what can only be defined as domestic terrorism.
