FNC’s Megyn Kelly spoke to New Black Panther Party Chairman Malik Zulu Shabazz today in a lengthy, two-part interview that featured moments of tension, a lot of broad questions and very few specific answers.
Kelly has been driving the DOJ/Black Panthers story for a couple weeks, and this was the first showdown with a representative of the organization.
During Tommy Christopher’s exclusive interview with Shabazz earlier in the week, Shabazz expressed doubts over whether he’d be a guest on any show because of, maybe, a “Zionist conspiracy.”
The first part of the interview dealt mostly with the DOJ case and why it was dropped. This transitioned to Kelly’s questions about Shabazz’s 2008 election directives. “Didn’t you order them to go, saying, they needed ‘to stop angry whites’ and use ‘all means at your disposal’?” she asked.
Without saying yes or no, Shabazz gave his reason for, what sounded like, doing just that. But when Kelly asked again, he said, “No, ma’am you’re mischaracterizing what I said.”
