This week, open carry laws are being debated in Texas. Â Members of a Dallas-based gun club, the Huey P. Newton Gun Club (named for one of the co-founders of the Black Panthers), in a show of some sort of strength, decided to march through the streets of Austin chanting slogans that are anti-police. Â Watch:
According to group member Erick Khafre, the group is more interested in legally arming all blacks and self-patrolling the streets than they are truly causing trouble, but the imagery in the video above and one produced by Alex Jones’ InfoWars, is disturbing in light of events of the past seven months since the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, resulted from self-defense action taken by a police officer.
Since that time, “charitable” donations to a number of non-profits that are part of the #BlackLivesMatter movement have been traced to the parent foundation bankrolled by George Soros, the Hungarian billionaire who is notorious for wanting to stir up social strife in the United States.
How or if this armed march through the streets of Austin, Texas by the Huey P. Newton Gun Club is related to the overall #BlackLivesMatter movement is not entirely clear, but one thing that is: they don’t trust police, and are not afraid to say so in graphic and slanderous chants. Â These people may be only interested in educating blacks on their 2nd Amendment rights and arming them for self-defense, but the optics tell a different story.
