A chilling example of the double standard applied by the Obama Justice Department to hate speech was on display when Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan called on his followers to “rise up” and “kill those who kill us” if the federal government fails to “intercede in our affairs.”
His speech was delivered in Miami before an enthusiastic crowd, many of whom stood up and applauded when he suggested “retaliation” against whites.
This, from his Facebook page:
Retaliation! If the federal government won’t intercede in our affairs, then we MUST rise up and kill those who kill us; stalk them and kill them and let them feel our pain.
Farrakhan is planning another “Million Man March” for October. In connection with that event, he has created a social media campaign with the charming hashtag #JusticeOrElse
The radical Muslim is calling for 10,000 men “among the million” who are willing to die in order to carry out this “retaliation.” Here’s the relevant snippet from the speech. (Note the segregation of women, who are relegated to the back of the church.)
Meanwhile, media outside of Miami didn’t seem particularly interested in Farrakhan’s hate-filled rant. The local CBS affiliate covered the speech but couldn’t bring themselves to quote anything from it. The Miami Herald story is also notable for what it doesn’t say:
According to the Twitter feed of Brother Jesse Muhammad, a blogger and member of the Nation of Islam who attended Thursday night’s gathering, Farrakhan spoke about respect for women, religion and race relations in America. Journalists from mainstream media outlets such as the Miami Herald, WLRN-FM, CBS 4 and others were not allowed into the church for the event.
“Every time they kill a black man, beat a black woman, we’re being radicalized,” Muhammad quoted Farrakhan as saying.
God forbid the Herald does anything like honest reporting. Perhaps they could have hung around outside the venue and interviewed people leaving the speech? I’m sure they would have gotten an earful.
Can you imagine some slack-jawed, white cracker kluxer talking like this about black people? He’d be arrested, tried, and convicted and sent to jail for 10 years.
But that won’t happen with Farrakhan, whm even Obama had to pay homage to when he was a politician in Chicago. Farrakhan is tight with many members of the black caucus, Al Sharpton, and dozens of black celebrities. He is a despicable hate mongerer who has now clearly advocated for violence against white people.
And he’s going to get away with it.
