Published

Obama Vice President Joe Biden is reportedly considering selecting an “early running mate,” which may be socialist Stacey Abrams, the left-wing loser of the Georgia governor’s race who stretched our democracy to the limit and beyond with her post-election agitating for recounts.

The Hill reports: “Citing Democrats familiar with Biden’s plans, CNN reported the possibility on Monday. An aide told the network that naming a running mate early would help Biden keep the focus on the Democratic goal of defeating President Trump in the general election…CNN noted that Biden stirred speculation last week by meeting with former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (D). But the two did not formally discuss the vice presidency during that meeting, two people familiar with the meeting told CNN.”

While it has been reported that Abrams burned a Georgia state flag in 1992 as a student at Spelman College, the mainstream media has turned a blind eye to Abrams’ deep connection to the SAAE group, comprised of students from all-black colleges in the Atlanta area. A source with detailed knowledge of the group’s activities told BLP that Abrams was one of three original co-founders.

Students For Afrikan Amerikan Empowerment, formed during the Rodney King crisis, was inspired by the Black Panther Party. Its mission statement during Abrams’ tenure stated that the group “shall employ any means necessary to free and protect our people from the evils of imperialism, capitalism, classism, racism, and sexism!” The group’s founders also made clear that “We do not wish to be ‘equal’ to, or necessarily integrated with any other group…We demand cultural autonomy! We demand freedom to practice our unique Afrikan traditions…” Recently the group has celebrated anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan, Malcolm X, and the Black Panthers.

SAAE explained in a 2014 post that Stacey Abrams was a founding member and “active leader” of SAAE through summer 1992, and then launched her local political career in the upheaval surrounding the Rodney King verdict.

Here is Abrams burning the Georgia flag with her SAAE comrades.

SAAE does not shy away from its radical heritage, stating outright that it was inspired by the Black Panther Party.

Here is a description of the group from its May 22, 2014 Facebook post:

“In the tradition of SNCC, the Black Panther Party and other student/youth/community movements that preceded it, SAAE sought to agitate, educate, organize and mobilize around what they believed to be critical issues related to freedom, justice and liberation for their generation. From mass marches, take overs of administration buildings to children’s breakfast and tutorial programs, from flag burnings, protest rallies, food co-ops to newspaper publications, from political education classes, gas mask sales, community self defense initiatives to Black P.O.W.E.R. political campaigns, members of SAAE and those connected to them sought to, as Fanon described, “discover their mission” and fulfill it.”

Here is a passage from the book Walking on Water: Black American Lives At The Turn of the Twenty First Century by Randall Kenan, which describes the founding principles of the group Abrams co-founded.

According to the book:

“The organizational principles for SAAE were quite simple. There were only four, a page long, published in each issue of The Liberator. It began: “We are first and foremost Afrikan people, the Alpha and the Omega!” The second principle says: “We are the masters of our fates and the captains of our destinies!” It went on to state that “liberation is the highest value,” and borrowed a phrase from Malcolm X, a phrase used nearly to death by SAAE’s members — “and shall employ any means necessary to free and protect our people from the evils of imperialism, capitalism, classism, racism, and sexism!” The third point condemned racism and its origins; and the final, perhaps most controversial pronouncement stated: ‘We do not wish to be ‘equal’ to, or necessarily integrated with any other group…We demand cultural autonomy! We demand freedom to practice our unique Afrikan traditions…”

Here is SAAE celebrating Louis Farrakhan in a Black History Month-themed post.

Did Bernie Sanders Just Endorse a Neocon Regime Change Foreign Policy?

Published

on

Is Bernie Sanders the anti-war candidate that many non-interventionists are making him out to be?

Journalists Jacob Crosse and Barry Grey presented some interesting observations about Sanders’ foreign policy views.

Sanders criticized the assassination of Iranian General Qassem Suleimani in January and also stressed his opposition to the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

During the Iowa presidential debate, Sanders loudly boasted, “I not only voted against that war, I helped lead the effort against that war.”

However, Sanders changed his tune when chatting with the New York Times.

The answers the Sanders campaign gave the Times showed its flexibility when it comes to foreign policy.

In other words, the Sanders campaign signaled to the military and intelligence apparatus that Sanders won’t present a threat to their interests and may actually carry out their interventionist agenda.

One question in the survey that the Times sent the Sanders campaign stuck out above the rest.

The third survey question asked, “Would you consider military force to pre-empt an Iranian or North Korean nuclear or missile test?”

The Sanders campaign responded, “Yes.”

Based on this response, Sanders’ is signaling that he’s willing to continue Bush-era policies of “preemptive war.”

Like Obama, Sanders’ opposition to the Iraq War was a matter of politics rather than a principled opposition to regime change wars.

His campaign was also asked, “Would you consider military force for a humanitarian intervention?”

Sanders responded, “Yes.”

Some of the wars that the U.S. carried out in the name of “human rights” have been the Bosnian war and the bombing of Serbia in the 1990s along with the aerial campaign against Libya in 2011 and the Civil War launched in Syria.

All in all, Sanders’ pro-peace/non-interventionist image is at best window dressing.

Under a Sanders presidency, the interventionist status quo will likely stay in place.
