Stacey Abrams is the Georgia democrat politician who will be offering the rebuttal to President Trump’s State Of The Union address this evening.
Ms Abrams is currently known as the loser in the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial election race; as a candidate, she used less than ethical (some might say illegal) methods to turn that election in her favor in a manner similar to the tactics used in the Florida races for Governor and Senator. Fortunately, her efforts were unsuccessful.
The word is that she now intends to run for the Senate. No bad deed goes unrewarded, I guess.
Now, this article popped up on Big League Politics:
Stacey Abrams Founded Black Separatist Group Inspired By Black Panthers To Fight ‘Capitalism’ and Integration
Democrat gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams is one of the co-founders of the radical black separatist group Students For Afrikan Amerikan Empowerment (SAAE) according to archived records obtained by Big League Politics.
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. (READ: Records Show Stacey Abrams Worked With Democratic Socialists of America).
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.
Here is Students For Afrikan Amerikan Empowerment (SAAE) identifying Abrams as an “SAAE Founding Member” in a May 8, 2017 post on its Facebook page, which features support for Abrams’ gubernatorial bid.
I didn’t see this article last November, and I don’t think it got any press. Interesting to see it now.
