The National Afrikan Black Panther Party, one of the groups that organized a recent Manhattan rally, appeared to condemn the actions of the seven privileged “comrades” busted for rioting and smashing windows.
Zulu Sharod, the chairman of the communist-inspired group, shared a news article tying the vandalism to the NABBP and wrote “We reject these lies” in a Facebook post.
“All Power! We reject these lies! We are an above-ground legal organization! We do not advocate violence except in the extremity of self-defense!” Sharod wrote on his page Monday.
When asked for further clarification, Sharod declined comment to The Post.
The Sept. 5 article, published by Drew Reports News, had the headline “New Afrikan Black Panther Party Protesters get testy, damage stores in NYC” and detailed the $100,000 in damages sustained during the Sept. 4 rally.
Eight people were arrested during the event, which aimed to draw attention to people jailed during nationwide protests that began in late May
