It’s a good thing that these racist kooks are being yanked out from under their rocks and into the direct sunlight — although to some degree the head of the New Black Panther Party is getting far more attention than he deserves.

Malik Shabazz was on Geraldo’s show last night, and the subject of Glenn Beck’s rally at the Lincoln Memorial on Martin Luther King’s birthday arose. Shabazz’s group, the Nalc Xulk Uk (Ku Klux Klan but in reverse) has said they will protest Beck’s Lincoln Memorial Rally because the crackas just shouldn’t be there.

Geraldo covered all the bases, such as why shouldn’t white people also have access to national memorials, and how many white people on the side of the union died during a civil war that liberated slaves, but there’s nothing more futile than talking sense to a nut:

The interview is here — including a clip of Shabazz praising Osama Bin Laden, just in case you didn’t think he was crazy enough.

Update: A reminder of the New Black Panther Party’s “Obama ’08” fan page.

    Hey, it's time we had a Glenn Beck Blvd. put up in every single city that has a Martin Luther KIng Street…It's only fair…

    I would think Mr. Shabazz would know that MLK's birthday is in January, not August.

    Mr. Shabazz is NOT a nut. He is a dangerous revolutionary, so don't DARE dismiss him as a nut. His black separatist ideas stem directly from Dr. James Cone, whose 1960s writings codified the ideologies of black liberation theology (BLT). Dr. Cone's books also are the self-admitted basis for the ideology of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, and by connection therefore, that of Barack Obama. Mr. Shabazz is an integral part of a movement connected to many high-profile people who believe in black separatism and militancy – he is no isolated nut case. We trivialize him at our peril.

    Read Dr. Cone's works (please borrow from the library to avoid providing him with financial gain) "Black Theology and Black Power" and "A Black Theology of Liberation" to understand the ends this movement desires. Dr. Cone has the trappings of academic legitimacy that belie his true revolutionary nature. He is one dangerous guy. The NBPP and their ilk are serious radicals to be watched carefully, not trivialized. One might think that "theology" and "militant radicals" are a tenuous connection, but you will think differently after reading Dr. Cone's books – I guarantee it. This is because BLT is no theology at all; it is rather a radical black separatist Marxist ideology that would kidnap God to be the leader of a black revolution.

    This "person" is the leader of an organization that just got a pass from DoJ.
