A former Black Panther Party member is warning of potential violence at the Republican National convention next year.
Brandon Darby explained to a group of conservatives gathered in Orlando, Fl., he left the Black Panthers because he loved America & didn’t want it destroyed.
He began to sour on the Panthers long before but the last straw was in 2008, when he witnessed the screening of a training video prior to the Republican Convention.
It was being shown to a group of naïve
kids on how to properly make Molotov cocktails to shut down the convention.
“Anarchists were showing videos of throwing Molotov cocktails at corporate systems,” Darby said. The ingredients were bought at a local big box and built using tampons as wicks with oil laced into the gasoline “to better stick to the skin,” like homemade napalm. Darby said something snapped in his consciousness when these radicals began openly calling for shutting down the convention by any means possible, simply because they didn’t like what the Republicans and Sarah Palin were saying.
He said, in 2008, a definite structure of planners had set up a three-part division of responsibilities in the leftist camp:
1)The Reds, the hardcore anarchists dressed in black, whose sole aim was to fight the police;
2)The Yellows, who were tasked with blocking roads to the Xcel site; and
3)The Greens, a loosely knit collection of about 10,000 routine protestors.
Darby’s story is one that should be the example for all disadvantaged youth to heed.
A runaway at an early age, he wandered through his teen runaway life before getting sucked into the Black Panther Party. Darby turned FBI informant after meeting Police Major John Bryson, who was in charge of New Orleans’s famed Ninth Ward. After Bryson rescued a former Panther stranded by Katrina in 2005, he started to realize that police do care and that “not all cops are pigs.”
Of his accomplishments was the co-founding and directing of the Common Ground Relief organization in New Orleans’ 9th Ward. After his time as a FBI informant, he courageously refused to enter into the FBI’s ‘Witness Protection Program’.
With all that is currently happening, it’s not hard to believe they are busy planning something similar for 2012. We would be wise to heed his warning.
