The firebrand leader of the Nation of Islam has called for 10,000 black Americans to “rise up and kill those who kill us.”
The video excerpt posted on Louis Farrakhan’s Facebook page urges “10,000 in the midst of the millions, 10,000 fearless men who say death is sweeter than continued life under tyranny” to engage in mass murder.
The Facebook page posted on Monday also carried the hashtag “#JusticeOrElse.”
“Death is sweeter than to continue to live and bury our children while the white folks give the killer hamburgers,” Farrakhan said.
Farrakhan cited the Koran:
The Koran teaches persecution is worse than slaughter. Then it says, retaliation is prescribed in matters of the slain.
Retaliation is a prescription from God to calm the breaths of those whose children have been slain. So if the federal government will not intercede in our affairs, then we must rise up and kill those who kill us.
The minister than called for violence against police and those who support them. “Stalk them and kill them and let them feel the pain of death that we are feeling,” Farrakhan said.
The establishment media has yet to condemn Farrakhan’s incitement.
In October Farrakhan will speak on the Mall in Washington, D.C., during a demonstration organized to commemorate the 20th anniversary of his 1995 “Million Man March.”
Farrakhan and Obama Ties
Randy DeSoto, writing for Western Journalism, notes the connection between Farrakhan, the Nation of Islam, and Obama.
DeSoto mentions a November, 2008 article posted on the Newsmax website that cites a former top deputy to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. Dr. Vibert White Jr. said Obama is connected to the black nationalist movement in Chicago and there has existed an “open line” between Obama and Farrakhan to discuss policy and strategy.
“These are mean, cruel times, exemplified by a ‘lock ’em up, take no prisoners’ mentality that dominates the Republican-led Congress,” Obama told The Chicago Reader in 1995. “Historically, African-Americans have turned inward and towards black nationalism whenever they have a sense, as we do now, that the mainstream has rebuffed us, and that white Americans couldn’t care less about the profound problems African-Americans are facing.”
