We must recapture our heritage and our identity if we are ever to liberate ourselves from the bonds of white supremacy. We must launch a cultural revolution to unbrainwash an entire people. El Hajj Malik El Shabazz (Malcolm X)
First and for most, their foundation is weak, they are based on their hatred of caucasians instead of love for Black people.
They are using the name Black Panthers when they are not a continuation of The Black Panther Party, they dont even have the same fundamental ideology! So what are these lost brothers and sisters doing?! (Rhetorical question)
Why are they counter-revolutionary?
They are counter-revolutionary because they dont have any programs to aid the black community or even try to repair the collective psyche of the black multitude.
The "New" Black Panther Party have absolutely nothing in common with the Orginial BPP. Bobby Seale doesnt even see them as panthers but as wannabes
Ok, so, that said, here are some words from the Huey Newton foundation (They have a significant amount of former Panthers) in regards to this topic.
although i can agree with some of your criticisms, i really don't think we should be concerned with how today's Bobby Seale views people. A good teacher of mine once talked to me about inconsistencies in people's legacy and how they actually lived/live their life. Bobby Seale has a great legacy but i don't think "today's" Bobby Seale and the Seale of his legacy are compatible.
So yea, my point still stands.
So if I should ever fall and get caught in a hustle
Let em know that I died while I fought in a struggle
From the hoodrats to rich kids lost in a bubble
Spray paint it on the streets and in the subway tunnels
Write it down and remember, that we never gave in
The Mind of a Child is where the Revolution Begins
So if the solution has never been to look in yourself,
How is it that you expect to find it anywhere else?

I couldnt even support the militarism of this organization all because it is based on hate. The thing is once an organizations theory is faulty so will their actions they put into practice be faulty as well. I mean cmon like you said they bought that Metsger fucker to one of their rallies, now what does that do? It alienates their own people they are supposed to serve, Black people. The NBPP CANNOT be revolutionary at all once it alienates its own people with deciding to bring white supremacists to its own fucking rallies. So once they militarize themselves what is the purpose if the people they alienated wouldnt even allow to let themselves to be protected/served by the NBPP?These points are the main reason I've kept from joining them quite a few times. I support the militarism, but the hatred aspect is a big issue. I also remember seeing a video once on Youtube where Tom Metzger (a leader in the KKK) was speaking at a Panther meeting/rally. I wouldn't mind working with them, but I couldn't join their ranks.
