Oregon based World Net Daily (WND) a well known conservative leaning news organization is running a front page story that no doubt is causing acid reflux in the Obama camp right now.

One of the ‘official’ Obama websites MyObama is carrying a message of endorsement from non other than Malik Zulu Shabazz the chairman of the New Black Panther Party, or NBPP. Even worse, it appears that Shabazz is a registered blogger at the site.

The NBPP has a rich history, non of which would be in the interests of Obama’s cause. Shabazz himself has made a number of speeches that are of a pretty racist nature, exactly the area that Barack Obama wants to stay clear of. The WND article goes to great lengths to hammer home some of the more inflammatory remarks that Shabazz has made over the years.

“Obama will stir the ‘Melting Pot’ into a better ‘Molten America,'” the endorsement says on the MyObama site.

The WND article goes on to add

Shabazz’s NBPP’s official platform  states “white man has kept us deaf, dumb and blind,” refers to the “white racist government of America,” demands black people be exempt from military service, and uses the word “Jew” repeatedly in quotation marks.

Ouch is all I can say, watch the Obama camp distance themselves from Shabazz faster than a recount in Florida!

I am sure that it will not take long for the Clinton camp to discover this endorsement and try and make some hay while the sun shines. I love a good clean fight.
