Oakland Mayor Ron Dellums and Rep. Barbara Lee of Oakland found themselves in the unwelcome spotlight this week over the letters of support they wrote on behalf of the notorious Your Black Muslim Bakery, but they aren’t the only politicos who have supported the group over the years.

At the height of its power back in 1996, the splinter Muslim group – whose members were implicated in last week’s slaying of newspaper editor Chauncey Bailey – got the city to approve an advance on a $1.2 million federal redevelopment loan to launch training program for health care jobs.

Within three months, the group had burned through $275,000 without turning out a single graduate.

They did, however, spend $650 a month to lease a Cadillac.

Another $44,000 supposedly went to consulting fees, $10,500 went for security and $7,500 for advertising on a local cable station, where then-leader Yusuf Bey had a weekly TV show.

When asked to explain what was going on, the Black Muslim Bakery cadre – in one of their typical tactics – marched in unison from the bakery to City Hall, then entered the council chambers like a precision drill team, lining up along the room’s back walls.

They then asked for another $70,000 to keep the project going.

And they got it, with the council voting 6-2 to grant the funds – minus the money for the Cadillac.

“The message was very clear – we are watching you,” said City Council President Ignacio De La Fuente, who cast one of the votes against the group’s request.

The school never opened.

And the loan – one of several the council made that year to help disadvantaged businesses – was never repaid

This article is so confusingly written it is nigh impossible to see how much money these thugs received from the public coffers. Surely it was hundreds of thousands, if not millions.

Mind you, this article addresses just one of the several “loans” these worthies got over the years.

But isn’t it nice to see that the taxpayers are funding the suicide of our own country?

“Health care jobs”? Since this was during the Clintons’ Presidency, was this part of Hillary-Care?

Is this what we have to look forward to?

$10,500 went for security…

Yes, we noticed the link to “security” on their website. It used to be called “protection.”

Though one suspects they were doing the collecting rather than paying out. The Nation Of Islam being infamous for the great “security” they provide.

They did, however, spend $650 a month to lease a Cadillac.

What stereotypical behavior.

They must be racists.
