Before I even came to DA today,  a line from one of my favorite movies kept ringing through my head.."Stay Sane Inside Insanity" from the RHPS. Lennon will always be my beloved.. Thanks for this post Keld..

Because the poster boy for non-violence is someone who beat his wife and kid and gave money and publicity to radical groups like the Black Panthers who extol violence.

I don't know where you got this information from, but to the best of my knowledge, the Black Panthers did not 'extol violence' except in the case of self-defence.

Also see the Black Panther Party's Ten-Point program
  1. We want freedom. We want power to determine the destiny of our Black Community.
  2. We want full employment for our people.
  3. We want an end to the robbery by the Capitalists of our Black Community.
  4. We want decent housing, fit for shelter of human beings.
  5. We want education for our people that exposes the true nature of this decadent American society. We want education that teaches us our true history and our role in the present day society.
  6. We want all Black men to be exempt from military service.
  7. We want an immediate end to POLICE BRUTALITY and MURDER of Black people.
  8. We want freedom for all Black men held in federal, state, county and city prisons and jails.
  9. We want all Black people when brought to trial to be tried in court by a jury of their peer group or people from their Black Communities, as defined by the Constitution of the United States.
  10. We want land, bread, housing, education, clothing, justice and peace.

Fascinating, yet irrelevant.  But I'll be the bigger man and say that even though Lennon was an undertalented trend-chaser and shallow hypocrite, funding violent organizations was not one of them.  Mea culpa.

even more insane about that is that John Lennon really was "put away"
