After making incendiary threats that many say have led to murder, including the assassinations of law-enforcement officers in New York City and now Texas, Louis Farrakhan is far from contrite.
The wicked Nation of Islam head proclaimed on Friday that the whole American system “has to be taken down.”
Farrakhan was in Cleveland promoting his upcoming “Justice or Else” rally, set for Oct. 10, which commemorates the 20th anniversary of his “Million Man March.”
He appears to possess an urgency to destroy America. Why the rush?
Farrakhan is 82 years old. He has had health problems, and less than two years ago announced he’d suffered a heart attack. He doesn’t want to die before reaching “the promised land” – witnessing the demise of a “400-year-old enemy” (white America).
At Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Miami on July 30 of this year, Farrakhan called for “ten thousand fearless black men to rise up and kill those who kill us. Stalk them and kill them.”
Less than a month later, on Aug. 26, a white female reporter and her cameraman from a Virginia TV station were murdered on live TV – stalked and killed – by a disgruntled former employee – a black racist motivated by revenge for the Charleston church shooting, where a young white man killed nine black congregants.
Two days later, on Aug. 28, Harris County, Texas Sheriff’s deputy Darren Goforth was murdered while pumping gas – stalked and shot in the back of the head, and then multiple times at close range. An unstable black man with a police record, Shannon Miles, has been arrested for the crime.
Miles had attended Prairie View A&M University in Texas. This is the same school Sandra Bland attended. Bland was arrested following a traffic stop and alleged assault on a police officer in July. Three days later, she apparently hanged herself with a trash bag in the Waller County Jail and became a martyr in the “Black Lives Matter” movement.
Following Bland’s suicide, daily protests have been held at the jail. In one of these protests, according to Breitbart, a militant black woman said that all white people should be killed. A few days later, armed members of the New Black Panther Party marched on the jail chanting, “The revolution has begun, off the pigs.”
Just hours after Sheriff’s Deputy Goforth was murdered on Aug. 29, activists with the St. Paul, Minnesota, branch of “Black Lives Matter” marched on the Minnesota state fair, spewing anti-cop rhetoric: “Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon.”
And this past Tuesday, Sept. 1, a black man calling himself “King Noble” posted a YouTube video, saying, “The Black Lives Matter movement wasn’t enough.” “Noble” found the execution of Deputy Goforth “funny,” and said, “It’s open season on killing whites and police officers and probably killing cops period. … Today we live in a time when the white man will be picked off.”
With his public threats, Louis Farrakhan has fueled the existing hatred many blacks (who typically have been raised without a father in the home) have long-harbored against whites.
Last year, on Nov. 22, Farrakhan had threatened retaliation for the death of Michael Brown. He told an audience at Morgan State University, a black college in Baltimore: “When we die and they [whites] die, then soon we’re going to sit at a table and talk about it! We’re tired! We want some of this earth or we’ll tear this goddamn country up!”
Three weeks later, on Dec. 13, at a New York City demonstration protesting the death of black men including Eric Garner, “Black Lives Matters” protesters chanted: “What do we want?” “Dead cops.” “When do we want them?” “Now!”
A week later, on Dec. 20, career criminal Ismaaiyl Brinsley of Baltimore (where Farrakhan made his threat) assassinated two NYPD police officers in retaliation for the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Gardner.
Farrakhan has made common cause with our enemies, such as ex-Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi, acknowledging that Gadhafi lent the Nation of Islam $8 million.
He has also brokered “peace” between black gangs and rappers, making many appearances on hip-hop and urban radio to promote his upcoming “Justice or Else” rally.
With the recent violent actions his followers have taken, Farrakhan feels emboldened. Yet, due to his advanced age and health issues, and the fact that Barack Obama – who has refused to prosecute him, the New Black Panthers or members of “Black Lives Matter” –has limited time left in office, Farrakhan knows he doesn’t have long to accomplish his goal.
Knowing that Obama is giving Farrakhan and company room to succeed, what can we do about their threats? Just because the federal government won’t act, doesn’t mean local governments and county sheriffs cannot act. They must act, to protect more innocent Americans from being slaughtered. Terrorist threats must be answered with arrests by states, counties and cities.
The greatest threats to our republic will occur between now and the time a new president is sworn in, in January of 2017. We need to pray as never before, and stand with those who are sworn to protect the public.
