The National Park Services (NPS) has announced its intention to spend $100,000 to “honor the legacy” of the militant black separatist movement, the Black Panther Party (BPP).
The University of California at Berkeley, has won the NPS grant despite denying the Constitutional free speech rights of conservative speakers like Ben Shapiro, Milo Yiannopoulos, and Anne Coulter. Just over the past year, UC Berkeley has allowed and encouraged violence from the alt-left and Antifa as a means to shut down and disinvite conservative speakers to campus.
The NPS’ funding announcement said, “This cooperative research project between the National Park Service and the University of California, Berkeley on the Black Panther Party is anchored in historical methods, visual culture, and the preservation of sites and voices … The project will discover new links between the historical events concerning race that occurred in Richmond during World War II and the subsequent emergence of the BPP in the San Francisco Bay Area two decades later through research, oral history, and interpretation.” Needless to say, it’ is just another way that the government is using taxpayer money to advance the white guilt narrative, and cater to the black entitlement mentality.
The goal of the grant is to produce, “an authoritative bibliography that includes scholarly texts, newspaper, and magazine articles will be useful for future scholars of the movement.” And to, “document how the BPP impacted the visual arts, music, dance, and styles of the 1960s, 70s and 80s [and] will underscore the vastness of its impact on American culture.”
Keep in mind that the Black Panther Party was originally founded in 1966 for the express purpose of arming black-only militias across California and the United States. The explicit goal of these militias was to create a “revolutionary inter-communalism,” and to destroy the capitalist United States.
In the 60s, the FBI rightfully noted the BPP’s “use of violence and guerrilla tactics to overthrow the U.S. government.” However, in the present day, the NPS sees fit to lionize and celebrate this domestic terrorist organization, under the fraudulent pretense of,” bringing diverse voices and communities together to understand their collective past and inspire a better future.”
According to the National Park Services, it awarded the grant directly to Berkeley – and forewent the usual, required bidding process – because Berkeley is “uniquely qualified” to fabricate a noble and heroic history of the Black Panther Party.
Steve Bannon is set to speak at Berkeley on September 27th, with Milo Yiannopoulos, Anne Coulter, Ben Shapiro and others.
