In the spirit of our glorious Ancestors, we rebellious slaves, African and Colonized Warriors exercise our divine right to practice Black August Resistance. Previously, we rapped about the origins of Black August and the resistance put forth by those noble guerrilla comrades, kidnapped, tortured and held for ransom behind enemy lines.
It should be noted that before we ever knew a place like Abu Ghraib existed, we were fully aware of our freedom fighter comrades being terrorized and tortured in the cold, brutal concentration camps conveniently located in the constipated bowels of these very racist, capitalist United States. Our sisters and brothers are being held as political prisoners and prisoners of war, not for any crimes committed, but for their political beliefs, political work and organizational affiliations.
Now, to the masses who have been thoroughly indoctrinated and baptized in the deep sewage system of lies — brought to you by foolish, hopelessly devoted lost souls puppeteered by the ruling class — this may seem far fetched or foreign. Nevertheless, while you continue to be mentally raped and left with your mind screwed up, in the real world we are struggling unrelentingly for the total liberation of African and colonized people.
I want to get down to the business of Black August Resistance. What is Black August Resistance? According to the elders, it is “a fighting style best exemplified by the heroic African Freedom Fighters George L. Jackson, Jonathan P. Jackson and Jefferey Khatari Gaulden.” Black August Resistance is African and colonized people unifying and utilizing their power to oppose social oppression and economic exploitation.
For years, in celebration of the living concept of Black August, our families trapped behind the walls of the California concentration camps in particular and behind enemy lines in general have been handing out revolutionary ass kickings to the so-called “powers that be.” Certainly we do not want to break the tradition, because we realize, as our brother Chairman Fred Hampton Jr. says, “Black August 2004, we are at war.”
So of course it is only natural that we turn the heat up. If you will allow me, I’ll be the first to set it off by throwing a Molotov cocktail at counterinsurgency. As we lock and load, we set the scope, aiming at the arch-nemesis of my people — Cointelpro.
Orchestrated by the late sinister J. Edgar Hoover and carried out by the FBI, Cointelpro (counterintelligence program) was launched by this wicked establishment to destroy and leave Africans and colonized people totally devastated. During the ‘60s, the FBI, under the direction of the demented, bitter Mr. Hoover, through Cointelpro, assassinated the character, mental and physical bodies of organizations and individuals including SNCC (Student Non-violent Coordinating Committee), RNA (Republic of New Africa), RAM (Revolutionary Action Movement), the Black Panther Party, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jr. and countless other liberators.
Many people believed that during the ‘70s, after documents on Cointelpro were exposed, the counterinsurgency program ended. Nothing could be further from the truth.
As proof that Cointelpro is alive and well in recent years, you could examine the government orchestrated infamous “East-West rap beef” between New York rapper Notorious B.I.G. and California political thug rapper Tupac Shakur. Tupac, the son of two former Black Panthers, Afeni Shakur (Panther 21) and his stepfather Dr. Mutulu Shakur (currently a political prisoner), was assassinated due to his family
