Why is this woman in Australia?

Angela Davis, ex Black Panther and rabid communist has been invited to speak at the West Australia’s Harmony Week run by the Office of Multicultural Interests

There are many articles on Angela that brush over her time on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list and trial where all charges were dropped but this one doesn’t

In 1970 Davis was implicated by more than 20 witnesses in a plot to free her imprisoned lover, fellow Black Panther George Jackson, by hijacking a Marin County, California courtroom and taking hostage the judge, the prosecuting assistant district attorney, and two jurors. In an ensuing gun battle outside the court building, Judge Harold Haley’s head was blown off by a sawed-off shotgun owned by Ms. Davis. To avoid arrest for her alleged complicity in the plot, Ms. Davis fled California, using aliases and changing her appearance to avoid detection.

Two months later Davis was arrested by the FBI in New York City. At her 1972 trial, Davis presented her version of where she had been and what she had been doing at the time of the shootout. Because she was acting as her own attorney, she could not be cross-examined. She presented a number of alibi witnesses, almost all Communist friends, who testified that she had been with them in Los Angeles playing Scrabble at the time of the Marin slaughter. Prosecution witnesses who placed her in Marin were dismissed by Davis and her fellow attorneys as being unable to accurately identify blacks — because they were white.

What is it with Multiculturists that they pay this woman big money to speak? Charges may have been dropped but there are enough questions left to bar her entry to Australia.


  • Angela Davis is a ghost from the past. She is irrelevant to 2008, but has a colourful history. My guess would be that she’s likely to draw a crowd because of her outrageous past. No doubt that’s why she got the gig.
    My kids have never heard of her. The audience will comprise greying baby boomers – a pretty harmless collection.

  • Yeah – you’re right but this little black duck doesn’t forget. Her background should keep her out of Australia but having an anti establishment background, not to mention she was peripherally involved in killing someone of the establishment, automatically endears her to the Left and they run the Unis.

    I’m not sure you are right about the audience. I would expect the younger students to attend on recommendation of their tutors and of course she is not going to talk about her less than squeaky-clean past; just how bad the establishment is. The kids will swallow it; initially at least.

    I just post these articles to inform younger readers what and who is being thrown at them as role models – old soldier still trying to maintain the status quo
