Race Warriors in the Ranks
By Barrington M. Salmon

The persistent problem of White supremacists inside U.S. armed forces and their desire to recruit soldiers and ignite an American race war

Christopher Hasson, a Coast Guard lieu- tenant, was arrested on federal charges and has been called a domestic terrorist by prosecutors.

WASHINGTON—The FBI’s arrest of a Coast Guard lieutenant who they say is an avowed White supremacist, has once again put a spotlight on the troubling infiltration of White nationalists and racists into the ranks of the military and law enforcement.

A number of media stories, particularly in recent years, have detailed the penetration of Neo-Nazis, White nationalists and those with ties to militias into the military and law enforcement. As this has happened, federal law enforcement officials have failed to see or respond to the threat of White nationalism.

D.C. activist and radio show host Eugene Puryear said the case of Lt. Christopher Paul Hasson is illustrative of the pervasive reach of White supremacy in every nook and cranny of this country.

Eric Robert Rudolph, a former Army soldier, was convicted of domestic terrorism in 1996. He pleaded guilty to the Centennial Olympic Park bombing in Atlanta that killed one and wounded 111 others.

“It really proves once again that the principle issue is the presence of individual and organized White supremacist groups but with no reaction from government,” he said. “Justice Department officials called him a domestic terrorist. This is the first time they’ve done that. We’re finally seeing some response. This case, by and large, gives us an understanding about how deep this goes. People think all White supremacists are in Mississippi.”

Mr. Puryear, journalist, author and community organizer, said the infiltration of far-right individuals and elements into law enforcement and the military is a larger institutional problem.

“Police are totally nonchalant about the right wing. They have ties to the Proud Boys; we saw a wink and a nod to the White supremacists in Charlottesville, as well as outright ties between both in other instances,” the Charlottesville, Va., native and co-host of Sputnik International Radio’s “By Any Means Necessary” said. “Law enforcement and the military are recruiting grounds for these forces. Some cops have an outright affinity to Nazi types and their affiliates, have an affinity for far-right ideas and are giving aid and comfort to these people.”

America’s military is troubled by White supremacists in its ranks. Some say the military has often ignored the threat.

“In Charlottesville, it still has not been explained why the police did nothing and letting people brawl on the streets. There was no full deep-dive investigation and no satisfactory answers.”

Mr. Puryear said in the face of corrosive, noxious, racist speeches, comments and policies by President Donald Trump and his political allies, his attacks on Black people and his derogatory remarks and negative labeling of liberals, progressives and the media has inflamed the political environment and emboldened those supportive and sympathetic to the president.

“This is a challenging time. The ground has been laid by the discourse,” he said. “I don’t know if we’re headed towards a race war but groups want to foment that. America is a violent society but political violence is new.”

Federal officials said Lt. Hasson, 49, of Silver Spring, Md., had a hit list targeting Democrats and journalists. A search of his home also turned up a stockpile of weapons—15 guns and 1,000 rounds of ammunition—and drugs. Lt. Hasson, who works at Coast Guard headquarters in Washington, is a former Marine. He appeared in court on Feb. 21 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland. He is charged with illegal drugs and weapons possession. Federal prosecutors have told media sources that the charges are just “the tip of the iceberg.”

Court documents describe Lt. Hasson as someone with espoused extremist and White supremacist views, who plotted to kill prominent Democratic politicians and journalists as well as “professors, judges, and leftists in general,” and planned large-scale attacks in an effort to start a race war. He admitted “dreaming of a way to kill almost every last person on the earth,” according to federal authorities.

Lt. Hasson’s hit list includes Democratic politicians—such as former Rep. Beto O’Rourke of Texas, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Sen. Chuck Shumer of New York, Sens. Kamala Harris, the Black presidential hopeful from California, and Cory Booker, the Black presidential hopeful from New Jersey; Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut and CNN’s Van Jones, Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon and MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, Joe Scarborough and Ari Melber.

He is said to have leaned heavily on the manifesto of Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik, who was convicted of killing 77 people in two terror attacks in 2011. Federal officials said Mr. Hasson had a cache of human growth hormone and steroids “to increase his ability to conduct attacks,” as detailed in Mr. Breivik’s manifesto.

“The defendant is a domestic terrorist, bent on committing acts dangerous to human life that are intended to affect governmental conduct,” prosecutors wrote.

Prosecutors say that Hasson, a Coast Guard lieutenant is a “domestic terrorist” who wrote about biological attacks and had a hit list that included prominent Democrats and media figures. He was due in court on Feb. 21 in Maryland. Prosecutors say Hasson espoused extremist views for years. Court papers say Hasson described an “interesting idea” in a 2017 draft email that included “biological attacks followed by attacks on food supply.” Photo: AP/Wide World Photos

The public was only made aware of the Feb. 15 arrest because Seamus Hughes, deputy director of the Program on Extremism at George Washington University, found the court filings on Feb. 20 during one of his regular searches, and released and reported on the details on Twitter.

Law enforcement sources told NBC News that feds caught on to Mr. Hasson because of multiple searches he made on his work computer.

Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist David Cay Johnston said he was quite surprised the Department of Justice didn’t issue a press release about the arrest.

“They did catch this guy because they searched his computer. The amazing thing is that there was no press release. Excuse me? No announcement by the government?” he asked. “(Jeff) Sessions downgraded the focus on the KKK (so) we shouldn’t be surprised. We only know about this because the George Washington University professor looks into these filings. Why did the DOJ not publicly notify the country about this case?”

Mr. Johnston, an author and specialist in economics and tax issues, said there are a number of unanswered questions, including if Lt. Hasson acted as a lone wolf, the broader issue of what’s going on in the Coast Guard ranks and if the Coast Guard is equipped with computer software, for example, to flag people with Lt. Hasson’s bent to their superiors.

“The real big problem here is that we have a president who encourages violence against his fellow citizens and he’s given aid and comfort to (White nationalists),” said Mr. Johnston, author of “The Making of Donald Trump,” founder of DCReport and longtime Trump watcher. “I’m not worried about most people. I’m worried about troubled people.”

Mr. Johnston said his greater worry is that if White nationalists get their way, the resulting carnage and bloodshed would be unprecedented.

“If we ever slip into a civil war, with so many guns, we would push Pol Pot to an asterisk in history. There will always be people like him (Hasson) but what steps are taken to check on this and look for people like that?” he asked.

While it might be alarming and easy for the public to assume that the military and law enforcement are overrun with White nationalists, Mike German, an expert in right-wing terrorism, counter-terrorism operations and terrorist group behavior, said the answer is more nuanced.

“It’s not fair to categorize it as a big problem. It’s a persistent problem in the military and the Coast Guard,” said Mr. German, a fellow at the Brennan Center for Justice’s Liberty and National Security Program in New York City. “It’s also a persistent problem in the courts, the school system, the media and elsewhere. The military and law enforcement usually attracts people with authoritarian personalities and it offers lethal training and national security access.”

Mr. German said that the level of violence in the country has dropped sharply and the number of people involved in spree shootings or murders for ideological reasons is relatively small compared to the number of homicides overall.

“Of the 15,000-17,000 homicides maybe 100 will be the result of ideological reasons and 200-300 are from mass violence,” said Mr. German, a decorated former FBI agent who quit after 16 years because of retaliation against him after he blew the whistle on continuing mishandling and deficiencies in counter-terrorism investigations.

Race and the issues of race are uncomfortable topics for a lot of people, are avoided and sidestepped, he said. Meanwhile, there are more than a few politicians willing to exploit racial conflicts.

“(Yet), it remains up to the people to realize that unless they stand up and fight against the racism and discrimination that’s affecting other people, eventually it will affect them too,” he said.

The military publication “Stars and Stripes” says there have been longstanding concerns about right-wing extremists in the military, about such groups seeking to infiltrate the services to gain tactical knowledge and about troops’ radicalization after they’ve joined.

The publication has tackled the issue in a range of stories. Military analysts and officials describe the phenomenon as “supremacist, extremist or criminal gang ideology or causes.” They also say anyone who advocates “illegal discrimination based on race, creed, color, sex, religion, ethnicity or national origin” are forbidden to military troops. So are groups that advocate “the use of force, violence or criminal activity or otherwise advance efforts to deprive individuals of their civil rights.”

Active participation is described as including fundraising, demonstrating, rallying, recruiting, training, organizing or leading members; distributing material, including posting online; and having tattoos associated with such gangs or organizations.

The writers cite a 2008 FBI assessment titled “White Supremacist Recruitment of Military Personnel since 9/11” which found a little over 200 identifiable neo-Nazis with military training. The report found military experience “ranging from failure at basic training to success in special operations forces” was evident throughout the White supremacist movement.

The report also notes, “FBI reporting indicates extremist leaders have historically favored recruiting active and former military personnel for their knowledge of firearms, explosives, and tactical skills and their access to weapons and intelligence in preparation for an anticipated war against the federal government, Jews, and people of color.”

The writers tell the story of Daryl Johnson, a security analyst with the Department of Homeland Security, who in 2009 alerted local police departments to a rising risk of terrorist attacks by the extremist right. The department “is concerned that right-wing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize returning veterans in order to boost their violent capabilities,” the report said.

Mr. Johnson’s report, issued just after the election of Barack Obama, set off a conservative media firestorm that claimed it disparaged troops and law-abiding conservatives. The report was pulled and Mr. Johnson’s office was shut down.

There is also a reluctance to present these types of figures and arrests as serious threats. While the Hasson case got some media attention, stories about an alleged hoax racial attack by actor Jussie Smollett dominated news coverage

Dr. Wilmer Leon, III said the Hasson case illustrates that the U.S. government is a microcosm of America.

“A lot of folks want to blame Donald Trump but we saw the increase on racist and hate-filled rhetoric before him. He has made it fashionable, made people feel freer to do and say what they want,” he said. “After the election of Barack Obama and Donald Trump articulating racism and hate speech, what you’re coming to see it is the fear of a Black planet. They’re afraid of genetic annihilation, afraid of the ‘browning of America.’ ”

Dr. Leon said there has been a reported 17 percent rise in hate crimes.

“We see it in general society and see it in the military as well,” he said. “Who else is he talking to in the Coast Guard? They can find out by looking through his emails and texts. Are they looking for his connections outside of government? Will they find a sleeper cell of like-minded people?”

Timothy McViegh

Dr. Leon is an author, educator and host of Sputnik International Radio’s “Critical Hour.”

He doesn’t expect to see self-defense mobilization in Black neighborhoods.

“We’re not conscious enough to protect the community from the dominant culture,” Dr. Leon said. “You don’t see the Blackstone Rangers in Chicago circling the wagons because of what happened in Silver Spring. Too many of us are afraid of being labeled, ‘radical;’ we’re more concerned about being liked and don’t care about being respected much less feared.”

Terry Nichols

“We have become Christianized, Americanized to the point of making us passive. We have been taught to be passive. The whole idea of passive resistance I understand but that’s different than defending ourselves.”

“Unfortunately, too many of us agree with and support Dr. King’s myth of non-violence but I’ve never heard him say that we should not be allowed to defend ourselves.”

There have also been significant attacks on U.S. citizens by former members of the American military. The most infamous act was probably the bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City in April 1995 by Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols, former U.S. servicemen. The White supremacist duo killed 168 people, including 19 children, with more than 500 people injured. At the time, it was the most deadly domestic terror attack in U.S. history. Others have been involved in mass shootings, bombings and attacks on banks and federal law enforcement officers.

‘I want to introduce you to Jesus’

By Askia Muhammad and Bryan 18X Crawford

CHICAGO—It may be the most difficult job a man has ever faced: helping the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad complete his difficult task of resurrecting the mentally and spiritually dead Black man and woman in North America. Minister Louis Farrakhan explained in detail—Saviours’ Day 2019, on Feb. 17—how he was prepared for that role, in his mother’s womb, even before his birth.

“A Saviour is Born for the Whole of Humanity: No One Need Perish,” was the theme, celebrated by tens of thousands of members and guests attending the three day celebration of the birth anniversary of Master W. Fard Muhammad, the founder of the Nation of Islam in the Wilderness of North America, and the teacher of Mr. Muhammad who carried the message and built the Nation for 41 years, leaving a Divine Reminder—the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan—to show the world the way to salvation.

The new nation is being built on the Word of Allah, God Almighty, right before our eyes. “I see what is happening in America! Black people are rising and White people are watching,” Minister Farrakhan said in a four-hour-long lecture at the United Center, home of Chicago’s professional basketball and hockey teams.

“There is nobody in America like Farrakhan,” the Muslim leader explained. “I want you to listen. White people haven’t done anything that they weren’t supposed to do. The Holy Qur’an says the new ruler would create mischief and cause the shedding of blood.”

A saviour was born into the Nation of Islam in 1955, when the 464-year term Black people had spent in the “furnace of affliction” in this country—310 years of chattel slavery, and the last 154 years of lynching, Jim Crow segregation, and racial discrimination. The year 1955 was when a young, wildly popular, Calypso-style musician named Louis Walcott wrote his “Saviour’s Letter” of acceptance, and joined on with all his heart and energy to help spread Mr. Muhammad’s message.

That letter, written by all incoming members of the Nation at that time, taught Minister Farrakhan three things, he said: Observation; concentration; and submission. The letter had to be written in blue or black ink, on plain, unlined paper, with every single “i” dotted and every single “t” crossed, with no erasures, or mistakes, before anyone was admitted into the ranks.
“I want to introduce you to Jesus. He came to save us from our sins. The Hon. Elijah Muhammad added to that Bible reference, ‘save you from the sins of White people.’ ” 

Indeed, the Muslim leader explained, “They made us into themselves.”

“I represent a universal Saviour to all the White people,” Minister Farrakhan explained. “I represent that Messiah. I am that Jesus. I have offered my life. Here I am!” But the miracle of the resurrection of the Black Nation in this country was not to come without major opposition. “Jews are obsessed with me,” Minister Farrakhan said. “I’ve been working 64 years on the ‘Black Problem.’ I never had any need to talk to White people,” and Whites, after their anti-Muslim campaigns of the 1960s and 1970s led to the increase in Mr. Muhammad’s fame and popularity, were mostly silent about the Nation of Islam until the 1984 presidential campaign of the Rev. Jesse Jackson.

Minister Farrakhan has withstood the battering and countless condemnations of his good work. The enemy and Jewish groups and publications, in particular, have chosen in recent years to condemn and punish those outside the Nation who have associated with the Minister, demanding that they denounce him or distance themselves from him.

But contrary to corporate media interpretation, Minister Farrakhan explained that he is not a hater of any people because of the race, their religion, their gender, or even their sexual preference.

“The name ‘Jew’ is a divine name,” the Minister said, referring to the Bible’s book of Revelations. “Real Jews do good.” But others “are using the name ‘Jew’ to hide themselves. Some Jewish people think so much of themselves,” until they will not let anyone else use the term “holocaust” to describe their own suffering

“Why do you think that I call them out and they don’t show up?” Minister Farrakhan asked rhetorically, then explaining that their charges of “anti-Semitism” are wrong and unjust, because the Ashkenazi, Caucasians who call themselves Jews, are not truly Semitic people, as are the Arabs, Hebrews, and Arameans, who originated in the Holy Land, Palestine. “They are European White people.”

“These are not the true Jews! These are Ashkenazis who use the Talmud (which was written by rabbis), and not the Torah, the revealed Word of God.”

Even sharecropping “can be traced to the Talmud,” he said.

“Israel sees the Black man as a problem,” the Minister said, referring to statements by a high level Israeli figure who complained that Black youth, and young activists in movements like Black Lives Matter with sensitivity to suffering Palestinians, are a threat to Zionist interests. “Israel, you are making a very big mistake, and you are hastening your doom. You leave my Black brothers and sisters alone, because you fear what they are going to become, if they listen to Farrakhan.”

Despite a thunderous chorus of Jewish, and White conservative condemnation, there were several White and Black Christian Friends of Farrakhan who were present—such as Father Michael Pfleger, pastor of St. Sabina Parish in Chicago, Chicago Pastors T.L. Barrett and the Rev. Al Sampson and the Rev. Willie Wilson from Washington, D.C.

“No other religion teaches anything like the rabbis of the Talmud teach so savagely and pornographically about the Messiah of Israel,” Michael A. Hoffman, who spoke during the program to the thousands assembled. “The best friend of the Jews, on this Earth, is the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan.”

“There is no denying that the Babylonian Talmud was the first source to read a Negrophobic content into the episode, stressing Canaan’s fraternal connections with Cush … The Talmudic glosses of the episode added to the stigma of Blackness to the fate of enslavement that Noah predicted for Ham’s progeny…” His source was “The Ebb and Flow of Conflict: A History of Black Jewish Relations Through 1900.”

Among the many honors and gifts given Min. Farrakhan because of his work by religious leaders around the world was an engraved platter from Rabbi Shlomo Mordecai Hager. He was the leader of one of the nation’s largest Hasidic (ultra-Orthodox) sects in New York State, until he passed in March 2018.

Rabbi Hager presented the Minister with a silver platter which reads: “To the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan: You are the Messiah of the world and to every human who wants to be civilized. Your friend and admirer from Rabbi Shlomo Mordecai Hager.”

The Grand Mufti of Burkina Faso gave Minister Farrakhan his fez, which coincidentally fit the Minister’s head perfectly. The Sheikh of Sheikhs, sha jaar’ah, which means courage, gave the Muslim leader his cloak and his staff during an international tour. The highly respected Islamic scholar and leader Abunah Sheikh Muhammad Ahmed Al-Mahi met the Minister in the Middle East, saying he prays for the Minister 500 times a day.

In Nigeria, Minister Farrakhan was feted by the Emir of Kano, the leader of that country’s Muslim population, with an honorary “Durba,” a ceremony in which soldiers on horseback charge at full speed, spears raised as if to attack, toward the reviewing stand, stopping short, and bowing to the honored guest. Such a large ritual as the one for Minister Farrakhan has only been performed nine times in the last century, for the likes of Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, and Winston Churchill, among them.

Minister Farrakhan left the audience with a joyous moment as Don Enoch Muhammad, a member of the Fruit of Islam and Omega Psi Phi fraternity, draped in a special fraternity “Founder’s Robe,” which he was given as a show of honor in 2017. Previously he was honored by the Chicago metro-area chapters of Omega Psi.

Min. Farrakhan was recently inducted into full membership in the fraternity, complete with a fraternity sweater and ring reserved for a national president, more than 60 years after he was unfairly “blackballed” from initiation at Winston-Salem State University. The induction into the fraternity was a special honor because it comes from Black people, he said. And, he added, Omega is the last letter of the alphabet and you can’t write a sentence with one letter. He called from Black fraternities and sororities to come together to tell the story of Black people.

Min. Farrakhan also reflected on the impact Malcolm X had on his development as a new, young Muslim in the Nation of Islam. The Minister explained how Malcolm took him under his wing and personally petitioned on his behalf to become a minister in the Nation, setting him on the path—unbeknownst to him—to becoming the man he is today: a deliverer of truth, a warner to the people, and ultimately, the door to salvation for those looking to fully submit their lives to the will of God. The Minister used his own personal experiences to illustrate how anyone, regardless of their background or where they are in their lives, they too can grow into a god. However, Min. Farrakhan, before getting into the meat of his lecture, told the audience, “If I touch you, it’s because God wanted me to.”

One of the main tools used by the oppressor to destroy Blacks has been indoctrination into their created religion of false Christianity. The worst deception ever committed by White people was robbing Black people of their cultural religious expression and replacing it with a version that made them docile, subservient and fearful of their oppressor, said the Minister.

Black people in America were victims of their own “faith” from being made to worship a White Jesus and by extension, White people, he explained.

“Satan made Jesus White and then falsified his teachings,” Min. Farrakhan said. “Twenty-five percent of the Bible is history, 75 percent is prophecy. The enemy took prophecy and made it history, and made history, prophecy.”

The Minister, in his address, also continued exposing Talmudic Jews, picking up on a theme shared during his Saviour’s Day 2018 message. The words of Min. Farrakhan last year created a great deal of uproar and backlash from the Jewish community that still rages today. However, never one to back down, Min. Farrakhan boldly shed even more light on the many ways the Jews have corrupted American politics and jurisprudence, as part of their conspiracy to subvert the rise of Black people in America.

Still, in a time when saying anything against Jews is treated almost like a criminal offense, Min. Farrakhan boldly stated that the Talmud, its influence on the Supreme Court and the U.S. Justice Department, as well as its attitude toward women, should all be challenged.

Speaking on women, Min. Farrakhan shared his pride at the rise of women on the sociopolitical front. The Minister spoke of the 102 women who were elected to Congress in the last election, a watershed moment in American history akin to the election of 17 Black, female judges in Harris County, Texas. But the Minister’s strongest words in support of women came in his defense of Tamika Mallory and Linda Sarsour, two of the principal organizers of the Women’s March movement. Ms. Mallory, a longtime social justice advocate, came under fire for her relationship with Min. Farrakhan and her attendance during Saviours’ Day 2018.

Min. Farrakhan spoke to the conspiracy to pressure both Tamika Mallory and Linda Sarsour, to step down from their Women’s March leadership posts.

“The wicked Jews want to use me to break up the women’s movement,” the Minister said. “Tamika [Mallory], Linda Sarsour, Carmen Perez, our sister with the #MeToo movement, Black Lives Matter, the women shook the world the day after President Trump was inaugurated. The women organized and all over the world, women rose up. When women rise, change is going to come. So, when they saw that Tamika helped that come about, they came after her.”

The Minister also addressed the recent controversy surrounding Ilhan Omar, a Somali-American, Muslim woman recently elected to Congress. She is currently serving as a U.S. representative in the state of Minnesota’s 5th District. Mrs. Omar came under fire recently over a tweet criticizing AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee), a pro-Israel political lobbying group that helps shape policy in Congress, and the executive branch of this country. Rep. Omar was forced to recant her statement and offer an apology, but Min. Farrakhan said, “My beautiful sisters [in Congress]; you were sent there to shake that house up,” before addressing the controversy surrounding Rep. Omar, saying, “She has nothing to apologize for. Israel and AIPAC pay off senators and members of Congress to do their bidding.”

On Donald Trump, Min. Farrakhan said, “Trump tells more lies that can be told. But he is there for a purpose … He’s breaking up every pillar of democracy, because there wasn’t no damn democracy from the beginning. It needs to be broken up.” However, he warned meddling in the affairs of Venezuela and fomenting war in Iran and other conflicts would usher in America’s doom.

In another moment, the Minister segued into the boldest, most poignant part of his more than four-hour lecture.

For many years, Min. Farrakhan has often told the story of how Elijah Muhammed told him that he was spoken of in the Bible. In his humility, the Minister has always downplayed the words of his teacher, choosing to exalt himself no higher than the position of brother to his own followers, as well as to those who stand by him and support his efforts the past 64 years. But during Saviours’ Day as the backdrop, Min. Farrakhan, for the first time, seemed to publicly embrace and acknowledge who the scriptures, and Elijah Muhammad, said he is: The Messiah.

“I have never made myself of any great reputation among my brethren. I walk among you humbly because that’s who I am. But I say to those who want their souls restored, who are on that casting couch, to all the women that have been abused, to all the boys, the men that have been abused in prison life, and abused by members of their family, I represent a saviour. A universal saviour … . I represent the Messiah. I represent the Jesus, and I am that Jesus,” Min. Farrakhan said, adding, “I’m the man that’s written in your scriptures that Jesus argued with [the Jews] about. I wasn’t auditioning for the role of Jesus. I didn’t know nothing about the play. I just started working and my teacher kept calling on me. Now I find out that the cross is for me. Now I find out that they’re holding me up right now. The cross is a symbol the Romans used to crucify people to make them a public spectacle. Well, here I am.”

A message like that could be hard for some to embrace, and even harder for people to accept. But it was a message easily embraced by many who came to hear him.

“The Minister’s words were very powerful and informative. As someone who’s in the process of awakening, I think Black people all over the world need to hear this message today,” Cephus “Uncle Bobby” Johnson, the uncle of Oscar Grant, a 22-year-old Black man who was shot and killed by transit police in Oakland on New Year’s Day, 2009. “Min. Farrakhan is our Black leader. It’s important for us to understand that, as well as understand how White supremacy has always tried to deter us from acknowledging who our real leader is and standing behind him. That’s really important.”

Rizza Islam, a young Muslim in the Nation of Islam with a strong presence and following on social media based on his videos, was overwhelmed by the powerful lecture Min. Farrakhan gave.

“The Minister’s messages are always right on time. But this one in particular, especially for us, the youth, was 100 percent accurate because he made the official call out to the youth, whether they’re from the street, or on a college campus, to come together and get the work we have to do, moving forward,” Rizza Islam told The Final Call. And on the Minister publicly stating that he is a Messianic figure written and spoken of, both in scripture and prophecy, Rizza Islam said, “It feels so good for him to really understand who he is because he’s been standing back from it for quite some time. He understands that he is fulfilling prophecy and we’ve all been watching it happen.”

Pastor Tim Rogers of the Hope Church in Brownsville, Arkansas found the Minister’s keynote to be enlightening, and he was honored to be a witness of it. “I love when the Minister talks about the historical Jesus. What really stood out to me today was him talking about the Honorable Elijah Muhammad telling him that God had went before him to make friends all over the world and there was going to take time for him to actually meet those friends,” he said.

The Aim of This World? Kill The Messenger of God

By The Final Call |

Unrelenting attacks on the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan have continued and moved again into Congress under the guise of an anti-hate resolution. It is insulting and beyond ironic that a man who repairs and uplifts those damaged and destroyed by hatred has become the target of such blatant and vicious lies.

But, it’s not an unexpected travesty for a nation steeped in falsehood and experiencing a revived sense of White victimhood and emboldened bigotry. Pushing the anti-Farrakhan and the anti-Black agenda are Jewish groups. A resolution was introduced Jan. 23 by House members Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.), one of two Jewish Republicans in Congress, co-chair of the House Republican Israel Caucus, and member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, joined by Representatives Ted Budd (R-N.C.), Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) “rejecting anti-Israel and anti-Semitic hatred in the United States and around the world, which is becoming more widely embraced and accepted within American politics and the halls of Congress.”

The resolution leads with three false allusions to Min. Farrakhan. It would have you think that the Minister is the leading threat to the Zionist state and Jewish people. But the Minister has no record of hating nor injuring Jewish people. In 85 years of life and over 60 years of public life, he has never called for harming one Jewish person, Jewish enterprise or Jewish interest. Not one of his followers has attacked one Jewish person nor deprived one Jewish person of their rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

What is the end game?

We believe that Black people are the choice of God today. We fulfill the prophecy of Abraham’s seed going into bondage under a strange people in a strange land, until the coming of God Himself to deliver that people. After the brutality, murder, slavery, suffering, death and torture we have endured and still endure, one would be hard-pressed to find a more fitting candidate.

So in that light, the aim of this world, as the Minister has taught us, is to kill the messenger of God. Min. Farrakhan occupies that position today as a modern Aaron who is a helper to the Hon. Elijah Muhammad, the Modern Moses.

The campaign begins as the Holy Qur’an describes, they attempt to put out the light of Allah with their mouths—slander, untruths, fabrications. It ends with the biblical crucifixion of Jesus, an attempt to take his physical life.

Given this country’s history and bloody hands at home and abroad, you would be foolish to think that the last man standing, as former Black Panther Party leader and Black liberation stalwart Elaine Brown observed, is not the target of such plots. Some have openly asked on social media and in newspaper articles why the Minister is not dead and spoken of their desire that his life end. Jewish leaders and publications have declared the Minister should not be welcome anywhere and condemn anyone who dares come hear him. So the plot is to isolate him, defame him, perhaps secretly detain him—as we have watched the steady erosion of personal freedoms in this country—and destroy him.

The Senate censured this man 97-0 in 1994.

Today a new resolution tries to frame him as a leading threat to Jewish people. He is no such threat. But these members of the Synagogue of Satan, which includes their likeminded Gentile brethren, understand his shedding light on their evil means the end of their power and their world. It means an end to the Ten Percent who suck the blood of the poor all over the earth. These Satanic Ones delight in war, reap its bloody benefits, commandeer natural resources, destroy nations and prop up despots who do their bidding.

“As a revolutionary, the life of Jesus, as recorded in the Gospels is a wonderful example to study. Every Black leader of consequence has been crucified and has knowingly or unknowingly followed in the footsteps of Jesus,” wrote the Minister in “The Aim of the Enemy,” an article posted online by The Final Call in May, 2000.

“We must remember that no Black man who has become international in terms of unifying the Black struggle in America with the struggle of Blacks throughout the world has ever been loved by the Government of the United States. … Paul Robeson, W.E.B. Dubois, Marcus Garvey, Adam Clayton Powell, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad all had global respect and ties, and, each one during his life time was turned on by his own people by the mischief of the media and did not live to see the acclaim that would ultimately come to them. When it appeared that these leaders were no longer a threat to the aims or objectives of the United States Government, the purposeful revision of the goals and objectives of these great men, thus, destroying their ideas among the people is what allowed the enemies to sanitize them, exalt their names and their faces because the public would no longer be familiar with the ideas of these men that made them a target of the American establishment.”

There is no segment of Black America that has not been touched in some way by the good work and wisdom of Min. Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam. Would we cower in the face of lies and accusations? Would we reject a true servant and friend to embrace an enemy? Would we desert a man whose only crime is loving us and having a willingness to speak bold truth to our oppressors? Such betrayal would earn us hell fire we would richly deserve. It is the time of our rise. Would we choose to be willing slaves?
