Community organizer Belinda Parker Brown refers to media and opponents’ treatment of Omar Dantzler’s gubernatorial candidacy as “sophisticated bondage.”

Belinda Parker Brown, a Slidell-based community organizer, lambasted the mainstream media’s treatment of the gubernatorial candidacy of Dr. Oscar “Omar” Dantzler, referring to it as “sophisticated bondage.”  She did so at a rally entailing further reform of Louisiana’s criminal justice system held at the steps of the Louisiana state Capitol on Saturday, October 5, 2019.

Sound Off Louisiana subscribers will recall our extensive interview with Dr. Oscar “Omar” Dantzler entailing his candidacy to become the next Governor of Louisiana.  During that interview, Dantzler stressed efforts to quash his campaign by the mainstream media and the other candidates.  In the early portion of that video just linked, we indicated we’d have future guests to elaborate on Dantzler’s observation.  Today, we provide that added reinforcement as we were graciously invited by Dr. Dantzler to a rally on the steps of the Louisiana Capitol for an event organized by Slidell-based community organizer Belinda Parker Brown.

Sound Off Louisiana was founded for the very purpose of permitting individuals to express their sentiments on any aspect of Louisiana government, and Ms. Brown gathered a large contingency of individuals who have plenty to say about Louisiana’s criminal justice system.  Let’s take a look at the fascinating videos which we believe are some of the best videos we’ve ever captured in the history of Sound Off Louisiana:


Brown lambasts Dantzler’s treatment by the mainstream media during this campaign for Governor of Louisiana.


Brown delivers a true “fire and brimstone sermonette,” after which she is praised by Youth Pastor Cory Ricks of New Orleans’ third ward.


David Frank, who has formed One Voice Now to maximize social media’s ability (as well as PBS stations across the nation) to advocate for specific causes entailing governmental operations, addresses the attendees at the rally.


Youth pastor and rapper Cory Ricks addresses the crowd and includes a rap song for its listening pleasure!


A small group of speakers addresses the audience to include Alex Carter (pictured above), who gave an impassioned testimony of his father dying from injuries sustained in prison after having been severely beaten for having a child with the sheriff’s daughter.

It was our honor and privilege to videotape segments of this rally for publication.  We will note that, just as Ms. Brown and Dr. Dantzler observed for the campaign, we saw not the first representative of the mainstream media there to cover this gathering.  Perhaps they feared that, by airing the concerns expressed here, Gov. Edwards’ re-election efforts may be hindered.

If so (and we can think of no other explanation), then we have indeed reached a truly sad state of affairs if people’s voices expressing perfectly legitimate concerns about any aspect of Louisiana government are quashed for fear that the expression of those concerns and sentiments may impede any elected official’s re-election efforts!
