Veteran Black Panther Larry Pinkey condemns Obama

"Larry Pinkney is a veteran of the Black Panther Party, the former Minister of Interior of the Republic of New Africa, a former political prisoner, and the only American to have successfully self-authored his civil/political rights case to the United Nations under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

He is an editorial board member of the online publication, The Black Commentator.

He also is a former university instructor of political science and international relations, and is in the archives at Stanford University, California of Dr. Huey P. Newton who was co-founder of the Black Panther Party in connection with his political organizing activities in opposition to voter suppression and other issues.

He authors the "Keeping It Real" column in the national publication The Black Commentator (

He is highlighted in the book, William Mandel, Saying No to Power: Autobiography of a 20th Century Activist and Thinker (Introduction by Howard Zinn). Larry Pinkney also has been interviewed on national news programs, including The MacNeil/Lehrer News Hour."

Democracy and Class Struggle is concerned that Larry Pinkey is giving credibility to Alex Jones populist beyond left and right class politics agenda rhetoric by appearing on Info Wars above and even using this Alex Jones terminology.

I used to see criticism of Alex Jones by the Revolutionary Anti Imperialist Movement in Denver but have not seen any class analysis based criticism of the Alex Jones Populist Rhetoric by revolutionaries in USA for some time.

If comrades know of good Alex Jones and Info Wars Project revolutionary criticism we will publish at Democracy and Class Struggle - in its absence we will publish our own critique of Alex Jones but the principal responsibility for such a critique is with US comrades.
