FLASHBACK - The Black Panther Coloring Book | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

FLASHBACK - The Black Panther Coloring Book

This is but one horrific example of the tactics used by the Federal Bureau of Investigation to stifle legitimate dissent and violate the civil rights of political groups that the administration dislikes. Along with the anti-war movement, the Nixon White House targeted the civil rights movement for disruption, using on-campus informants to infiltrate and in many cases to disrupt legal protests and activism.

This coloring book, which was purported to be from the Black Panthers, had actually been rejected by them when it was brought to them by a man later revealed to have intelligence connections. Not to be troubled by the fact that the Panthers found the coloring book revolting, the FBI added even more offensive illustrations, and mass mailed it across America. It so infuriated the white population that they stopped listening to the legitimate grievances of the black people.

Webmaster's Commentary: 


Back in the 1960s, the American people were uniting in anger against the policies of the US Government, such as the war in Vietnam, fueled by the realization that Richard Nixon was, despite his claims to the contrary, a crook, who was proven to have stolen his second election (if not the first).

In order to blunt the public outrage, Nixon turned to divide and conquer tactics, and used the FBI's COINTELPRO program to split Americans into groups and goad them into hating each other, so they would forget they hated the government.

COINTELPRO, which stood for "Counter Intelligence Program" was a criminal operation that engaged in unconstitutional tactics to disrupt legitimate dissent and stifle free speech. Their methods included frame-ups, hoaxes, break-ins, and intimidation.

Exposure of this program in the 1970s brought the US Government to the brink of illegitimacy in the eyes of the American people and congress was required to act, passing laws that forbade the FBI from engaging in such operations again, but those laws have all been rescinded and the FBI is up their old tricks again!

In the case of the Black Panther Coloring Book it was a hoax by the FBI to turn white Americans and Black Americans against each other so they could not unite against the real problems with society. And back then, as today, the FBI was encouraging blacks to kill policemen!

The more things change the more they stay the same!
