The Moorish Zulu Nation, Afrika Bambaataa, Hakim Bey & NAMBLA: Coincidence Or Nah?

The Moorish Zulu Nation, Afrika Bambaataa, Hakim Bey & NAMBLA:
Coincidence Or Nah?

By Khalil Amani

We’ve all, at one time or another, put our figurative foot in our mouths! Why just the other day a female patient came into my office (Yes! I have an effing career!) with a young child and I said, “Is that your granddaughter?” Being nice, she smiled back at me and said, “No. This is my daughter.” Ah dayum! Foot inserted into mouf! I just insinuated that she looked old—grandmotherly! Damn. (Well, she was 43 with a 3 year old! The fuck was I supposed to think?)

Wasn’t nobody amongst the conscious community or otherwise thinking about this pedophile group, the North American Man/Boy Love Association aka NAMBLA—and then one of Afrika Bambaataa’s victims, Hassan “Poppy” Campbell got to running his yap-trap in the spirit of demagoguery and went on YouTube lying by saying that NAMBLA was on its way to making it legal for adults to fuck children and that gay organizations were in bed with this group. Poppy would stir up and incite his YouTube audience with these broad assumptions. Never once did Poppy give background or historical context about NAMBLA. He acted like they were some new gay group on the scene that were coming for your underage sons. Poppy would have us believe that all of the ills of society—murder, child molestation, etc. just started happening since his coming out against Bambaataa for child molestation!

NAMBLA ain’t new! I’ve known about NAMBLA years ago! My Gawd! They've been around since the early 80's!

So, of course, I had to rewrite his NAMBLA narrative (that seems to be a constant theme with this guy Poppy—rewriting his narratives!), first by explaining that NAMBLA was a fringe gay rights organization, operating on the periphery of other gay organizations who, once they found out what NAMBLA advocates—quickly distanced themselves from. The biggest gay rights organization, GLAADGay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation went so far as putting out a resolution stating, “GLAAD deplores the North American Man Boy Love Association's (NAMBLA) goals, which include advocacy for sex between adult men and boys and the removal of legal protections for children. These goals constitute a form of child abuse and are repugnant to GLAAD.”

NAMBLA was to the Gay Rights Movement what the Black Panthers were to the Civil Rights Movement—a fringe organization. NAMBLA has been thoroughly castigated, thrashed and denounced by every gay group in America. This is surface information, but then I got to digging, not sure what I’d find. Never thinking that Poppy’s rabble-rousing against NAMBLA would lead me to the doorsteps of the Zulu Nation—I was blown away to find out that the Moorish Zulu Nation, Afrika Bambaataa and NAMBLA were not too far off from each other—that, in fact, a case can be made that they are bedfellows! Now let me ‘splain!

The Zulu Nation’s religio-spiritual make-up is a quagmire—a cluster-fuck—a labyrinth of Nation of Islam, Five Percenter, Nuwaupian, Kemetic and Moorish Science doctrines. More specifically, Afrika Bambaataa is a member of now-imprisoned cult leader, Dr. Malachi York’s outfit, the “United Nuwaupian Nation of Moors.” It is no coincidence that Afrika Bambaataa gravitated to Dr. Malachi York’s teachings! It is no coincidence that both men have been linked to fucking with children—pedophilia! York is in prison for a gazillion years for sexing kids and passing a dirty dick disease called herpes to his victims and Bambaataa is playing it low-key, because he has become anathema to the black community—and Hip-Hop— for sexing teenage boys.

Enter Hakim Bey (not the “Hakim Bey” whom Lord Shariyf begged the Zulu “Council” to confront Bam about his homosexual tendencies—and pedophilia) I’m tallumbout the philosopher Peter Lamborn Wilson aka Hakim Bey (born 1945)—an American anarchist author, known for advocating the concept of “Temporary Autonomous Zones” aka TAZ—some Eurocentric philosophical mumbo-jumbo bullshit of the nihilistic ilk. But look at his name—his last name specifically, Hakim BEY, BEY! BEY! BEY!—a nod to the Moorish Science Temple of America! This white dude was heavily influenced by the teachings of Noble Drew Ali, the founder of the Moorish Science Temple. This white boy claims that Noble Drew Ali taught that Ireland was part of the Moorish Empire—that Celts are an “Asiatic Race” and thus, potential converts to Moorish Science.

Hakim Bey, A Moor & writer for pedophilia group, NAMBLA

The Wikipedia entry writes this of Hakim Bey, "Some writers have been troubled by Bey's endorsement of children's sexuality, and its ability to be expressed without the restriction of age...  Michael Muhammad Knight describes his experiences with Peter Lamborn Wilson. Knight says, 'Writing for NAMBLA amounts to activism in real life. As Hakim Bey, Peter creates a child molester's liberation theology and then publishes it for an audience of potential offenders.' 'Knight has disavowed his former mentor due to Wilson's advocacy of paedophilia/pederasty".[22] ...Robert Helms has criticized Wilson for pedophilia, writing that Wilson, 'uses anarchism in an ethically warped, opportunistic way by pretending that adult-child sex is a natural freedom. It isn’t, and not only would almost any anarchist disagree with him, but they’d also dispute a child-rapist’s right to a non-violent remedy in many cases." Here's the complete Wikipedia entry on this pedophile, Hakim Bey. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Lamborn_Wilson

Not to be confused with the white pedophile writer above. Hakim Bey (below), a high-ranking Moor of the Moorish Science Temple and Zulu Nation confidante. This is the guy that Afrika Bambaataa's former bodyguard, Lord Shariyf (another Moor) refers to in his Star Shot97 interview and talks about Bambaataa's boy-love. 

Let’s go further!

Starting with our basic Wikipedia entry (on the white) Hakim Bey, it says, “Wilson's occasional pen name of Hakim Bey is derived from il-Hakim, the alchemist-king, with 'Bey' a further nod to Moorish Science.” The Moorish Science Temple of America is a "religion of sorts," because it centers around a theology (although they claim it's about black people's true identity and nationality) started by Noble Drew Ali in America and this white man took on his pen-name (Hakim Bey), which pays respect to that group and its leader. White people cannot join the Moorish Science Temple, so how and why does Hakim Bey become affiliated? Wikipedia further writes, “While undertaking a classics major at Columbia University, Wilson [Hakim Bey] met Warren Tartaglia, then introducing Islam to students as the leader of a group called the Noble Moors. Attracted by the philosophy, Wilson [Hakim Bey] was initiated into the group, but later joined a group of breakaway members who founded the Moorish Orthodox Church.”

Hakim Bey was first a member of a white group—an offshoot of the black Moorish Science Temple of America, headed by this Tartaglia dude who named his group the “Noble Moors.” This white group was created because white people were not allowed in the black Moorish Science church, similar to how freed Africans were not allowed in white churches, so blacks created the African Methodist Episcopal Church (A.M.E.). This white Hakim Bey was heavily influenced by Noble Drew Ali’s black movement called The Moorish Science Temple of America.

Noble Drew Ali, founder of the Moorish Science Temple of America.

In (the white) Hakim Bey’s “Manifesto of the BLACK THORN LEAGUE” he writes:

“According to orally-transmitted teachings of Noble Drew Ali, founder & Prophet of the Moorish Science Temple of America: – Ireland was once part of the Moorish Empire; that is, the celts were Moslems, & there were black moors from N. Africa also present in Ireland. But the moors were expelled by militant Christianity – this event is disguised in the legend of St. Patrick's expelling the snakes - for which reason the MST celebrates St. Patrick's Day, in a mood of irony perhaps, in expectation of an eventual Return. In Noble Drew Ali's system, celts are considered an “Asiatic race”, & thus potential converts to Moorish Science. We consider NDA's [Noble Drew Ali] theories to be racial but not racist, because (again according to oral tradition) they were based (at least in part) on spiritual affinity. “Europeans” who wished to Join the MST [Moorish Science Temple] (including some of the later founders of the Moorish Orthodox Church) were declared to be really celts or “Persians. … All speculation aside, the Moorish Orthodox Church [the white arm of The Moorish Science Temple] entertains its own esoteric interpretation of NDA's [Noble Drew Ali’s ] teachings on these matters. We heartily endorse his “elective affinity.”

Here's the link to the whole manifesto. https://hermetic.com/bey/blackthorn . Clearly, clearly, clearly Noble Drew Ali influenced this white dude Hakim Bey and had it not been for the color of his skin, Hakim Bey would've been a full-fledged, card-carrying member of the Moorish Science Temple of America, but somewhere along the way, this white boy got interested in "temporary autonomous zones" and fucking children up the keister (booty), so much so that he became a writer for NAMBLA, the North American Man/Boy Love Association!

Hakim Bey, the Moor became a prolific writer, author and philosopher. Again, he became an advocate for man/boy love—writing for NAMBLA. No! He was not a member of Noble Drew Ali’s Moorish Science Temple of America, because he was caucasian—white, but as you see, he was heavily influenced by Noble Drew Ali’s movement! He became a muslim pedophile advocate!

Is it a coincidence that Malachi York, Afrika Bambaataa and his Zulu Nation are of the Moorish persuasion? Or Nah? Is it a coinkydink that one of the higher-ups in the Moorish Nation today is also named Hakim Bey—a black Hakim Bey? Could this black Hakim Bey have taken his name as a show of respect to the pederast advocate, the white Hakim Bey of NAMBLA? Or Nah? Is it a coincidence that Moorish Malachi York is sitting his rusty-butt in prison for sexing children? Or Nah? Is it a coinkydink that Moorish Afrika Bambaataa is being accused of pedophilia? Or Nah? The common link is that the white pedophile advocate Hakim Bey is a Moor—that Malachi York is a Moor—that—Afrika Bambaataa is a Moor—the Zulu Nation are Moors—and that the black Hakim Bey is a Moor. They are all Moors who have been accused of fucking with children (or in the case of the black Hakim Bey, taking on the name of an older white man who fucks with children). Are all these just coincidences or nah?

This may be religio-historical gymnastics that I’m engaging in, but this may very well be one of the biggest conspiracies of the so-called, “Gay Agenda”—subtly fed to black people through the Zulu Nation and Malachi York’s Nuwaupian Nation. I’m “Gay Hip-Hop’s Straight Advocate,” but I didn’t sign up for any of this pedophile shit!

Religion has always been a powerful tool to oppress and enslave the mind. The Moorish Zulu Nation is a quasi-religious outfit because the leaders—Afrika Bambaataa, the black Hakim Bey and others are steeped in Moorish Science, which, according to them is all about so-called black people’s true nationality (the Hebrew Israelites say the same thing!), but the God-concept weasels its way to the front of the line. Some will try and tie all of the fuckery of the Zulu Nation’s pedophilia on the conscious community—on Kemetic consciousness—because the Zulu Nation theology is rooted in Moorish, Kemetic ideology. This is not a Kemetic thingy and although many Moors wear the Ankh (an Egyptian symbol), the gay-pedophile shit that Afrika Bambaataa has been accused of comes straight out of his own warped, perverted and pedophilic mind! The Moorish Science Temple of America DOES NOT advocate fucking with children! Neither does any Kemetic ideology! Let's be clear! It is the practitioners of these ideologies that bring their aberrant sexual proclivities to the organization and try to normalize it. But as you shall see in just a millisecond, there are some Hebrew Israelite camps that talk about busting young girls open, as soon as they start bleeding! Wait for it! 

Peter Lamborn Wilson aka Hakim Bey is a shit-stain of the Moorish/Sufi persuasion who just happens to be a great deep thinker with a mean pen-game!

I’m not one of those so-called “conscious” folk who looks back at ancient religions and cultures and try to point the finger at them for their evolutionary understanding of the Divine. As an ex-Hebrew Israelite myself, I have no problem with Kemetic folk pointing out the seemingly crazy stuff in the Bible—like the Israelites eating their babies during times of famine—or men performing oaths by holding each other’s cocks and swearing—or the fact that lesbianism is not mentioned in the Old Testament—or that rapists have power over the raped in certain situations. For there are Hebrew Israelite groups today that have not evolved from the primitive understanding of the Divine (God) and the primitive understanding of human sexuality. Every Hebrew Israelite group is against same-gender-loving people (the gays!), but after that, it’s a free-for-all on doctrinal interpretation. One group of Hebrew Israelites known as “GMS” (Great Millstone/ Israel United In Christ) says they’re gonna start fucking girls as soon as they get their periods—at age 12 and shit! They openly say they are gonna pedophilia and pederast the shit out of our prepubescent daughters! Think I'm bullshitting? It ain't just some of the Kemetic Muurs (Moors) that are on some aberrant sexual deviancy! Peep this video! 

As a Kemetic thinker, I don’t have a problem with Hebrew Israelites pointing out the seemingly homosexuality of ancient Egypt (Kemet). For there are drawings of grown men holding other grown men’s cocks in ancient Egypt. It just doesn't bother me in the least bit! Why? Because…

As a student of history, mythology and religion, I understand that the past is meant to be studied, not condemned, denigrated, trampled upon, criticized and disrespected! For this is the great crime of today’s conscious community and Hebrew Israelite community. They are both invested in tearing down the other’s religio-cultural-sexual standard, instead of viewing each other through the lens of a nation’s ever-evolving understanding of the Divine (God).

For the umpteenth time—with major redundancy and writing ad nauseam this point; We, 21st century humans cannot and should not presume to judge another culture’s religious understanding of God! It’s so religiously and historically disingenuous to do so! For we have the advantage of hindsight, Monday morning quarterbacking and outright knowledge. Believe it or not, we are much smarter than the people who lived 3,000 years ago. We know that a lobster should be cooked alive. They didn’t! Both Kemetic and Hebrew Israelite traditions are rent with fuckery! And the Moors are included in that fuckery, so pick your poison and rock on!

Zulu Nation, the Moors, Afrika Bambaataa and the black Hakim Bey, you can blame Hassan "Poppy" Campbell for this blog, because it was he, who jumped out the window with scathing attacks against gays, claiming that homosexuality is gateway sex to pedophilia and asserting that gay rights groups support NAMBLA. It was he who tried to incite the masses with NAMBLA rhetoric! Like that lady whom I mistakenly thought was a grandmother, when, in reality, she was just an older woman who just so happened to have a baby 40, so it was with Poppy, who invoked NAMBLA, not knowing that someone like me would be listening and bridge the gap betwixt NAMBLA's pedophilia and a Moorish connection to the Zulu Nation's Moorish. Watch yo' mouf on these Internets might be the moral of the story!
