Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan has declared war on white America.
Did anyone notice?
Did Barack Obama or Attorney General Loretta Lynch notice?
Did I miss the condemnation of Farrakhan’s call to violence by this long-time supporter of Obama – a man who once called him “the Messiah”?
The unparalleled racial incitement to violence came, shockingly, at a service last Sunday at Mount Zion Baptist Church in Miami.
Citing the Quran as his inspiration, Farrakhan, 82, called for the rising up of an army of 10,000 black male volunteers to kill white Americans.
“Death is sweeter than watching us slaughter each other to the joy of a 400-year-old enemy,” he said. “Death is sweet. The Quran teaches persecution is worse than slaughter.”
In his fiery speech, Farrakhan said he was looking for “10,000 in the midst of the million … 10,000 fearless men who say death is sweeter than continued life under tyranny” to retaliate against white Americans because of their alleged oppression of black people.
“Retaliation is a prescription from God to calm the breath of those whose children have been slain,” he said. “So if the federal government will not intercede in our affairs, then we must rise up and kill those who kill us. Stalk them and kill them and let them feel the pain of death that we are feeling.”
The content of Farrakhan’s sermon was published on his Facebook page and at his website Final Call, which promotes the upcoming 20th anniversary of the Million Man March on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. That event will take place in October, the culmination of his national “Justice, or Else” tour.
Farrakhan said whites, “like serpents,” are deceptive.
“They would like to charge us with radicalizing our people by telling the truth, but every time they kill a black man or beat up a black woman or unjustly stop us for traffic violations and then kill us, we are being radicalized,” he said. “They are the ones who are radicalizing us. All we are doing is telling the truth of what they are doing.”
This is incendiary stuff.
So where is the media coverage?
Where are the denunciations by presidential candidates?
Has even one member of Congress spoken out about this?
Where are the calls for investigations of this “hate speech”?
Where are the repudiations of this speech by the so-called “civil rights leaders” who have worked hand in hand with Farrakhan for 40 years – people like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Chicago community organizer Barack Obama, whose own church hosted and supported Farrakhan?
I’m sorry, but there are zero degrees of separation between the president of the United States and Farrakhan. That’s a fact. And Obama’s silence after this call to vigilantism is, shall we say, disturbing. Does Obama’s lack of response suggest approval?
Imagine a white supremacist making such a call to violence against blacks at a large church gathering: Is it conceivable that it would not be at the top of the nightly news on every network? Is it even possible that such a despicable rally would not be noticed by Obama and his Justice Department? What would be the consequences to a church that hosted such a hateful speech?
I think you can imagine the answers to those questions – which leaves one question remaining: Why is there a concerted effort on the part of the media and the political establishment to blindly overlook the catcalls for racial violence when it comes from the likes of Farrakhan and his open, unchallenged efforts to recruit an army of murderous black jihadis?
