On September 18, 2016 during a Men’s Day address at the church of Rev. Willie Wilson in Washington, DC, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan criticized a statement made by President Obama who seemed to chastise potential Black voters who do not vote for Hillary Clinton as tarnishing his “legacy.” A Mr. George C. Frazer used his Facebook page to criticize statements made by Minister Farrakhan on a video clip from this church speech that has nearly 4 million views on Facebook. George C. Frazer starts his rant by saying, “I am TIRED of people sharing this video so I am compelled to address it…” Mr. Frazer is a very smart man who has done a lot to promote Black entrepreneurship, however let us broaden Mr. Frazer’s perspective with a little current history.
I looked at the whole video twice and felt that although Min. Farrakhan criticized Pres. Obama, he left a door open for him to redeem himself with Black people by addressing the economic depression in the Black community: 26.2% poverty rate, 3/5ths median income of whites, 1/12th net worth of whites. Min. Farrakhan recognized that there have been many powerful forces and people who have prevented Pres. Obama from fulfilling his promised “change that we can believe in.” Min. Farrakhan also said that maybe like Jimmy Carter he can do more good after leaving office than when constrained by the forces surrounding the office of the president.
Mr. Frazer like many other Black leaders have confronted opposition from racist whites who we can categorize as a typical “redneck cracker from Georgia.” Granted these rednecks are vicious, but they ain’t the top dog in the food chain. Minister Farrakhan is fighting the top dog, Satan, not some potbellied redneck sheriff in rural Georgia. Minister Farrakhan is going after the devil maker, Satan, who controls the money of the world and minds of the people, Black, white and everything in between, with his mass media and satellites.
Bernie Sanders in his campaign pointed out the “crooks” on Wall Street who have been stealing America’s wealth through the privately owned Federal Reserve ever since wealthy international Jewish bankers set it up in 1913. Bernie Sanders correctly identified the Wall Street crooks that caused and benefited from the Financial Crisis of 2008-2009. He said that if he was elected he would put them in jail where they belonged and take their ill-gotten wealth to provide a free college education for our youth. Min. Farrakhan said that he liked what Mr. Sanders was saying, but he did not believe that if elected president, he could do what he was saying.
During the Democratic campaign to determine their candidate for president I had a very heated conversation with a very intelligent, sincere community leader, activist and friend. I was in favor of Bernie Sanders over Hillary Clinton because of Mr. Sanders’ stand against Wall Street. But my friend became very emotional and said that Bernie Sanders could not defeat Donald Trump and anyone advocating for Sanders was only making it easier to put Donald Trump in the White House. Then I said, “Why are you so afraid of white people?” He blurted back and said
“You know that I ain’t afraid of no cracker. You see how I tear them up in my newspaper.” Then he said, “You Muslims just want Trump to win because that would prove that white folk are devils.”
That was a very interesting and telling statement that I will deal with later. But suffice it to say, no matter which of these two wins, Hillary or Trump, white folk are still devils and Min. Farrakhan is fighting the devil maker, Satan, himself.
Mr. Frazer, like my friend, is viewing the world through a very narrow and short term lens. Min. Farrakhan has been in the minds of many presidents including Reagan, Bush I, Clinton, and Bush II. These presidents have been actively involved in plotting the death and incarceration of Blacks under, first, the guise of the “war on drugs”, then later using the subterfuge of the “war on terror.”
In 2008 Min. Farrakhan told the world that Mr. Obama was “selected” before he was “elected.” Why was Mr. Obama “selected” and what was he supposed to do when elected to office? I will let Min. Farrakhan handle that heavy question, but he never did anything to harm Mr. Obama’s run for the presidency or interfere with his ability to run the government after elected. And this was even after Hillary Clinton forced Mr. Obama to “reject and denounce” Minister Farrakhan.
In a Final Call Newspaper article titled, “Guidance For Our President And Our Nation” by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan on JAN 20, 2015, he stated:
“In 2008 I said to the American electorate that Barack Obama reminds me of that camel; that God told the wicked in that day, “Do not harm (or hamstring) this camel”; and I said to the American electorate, “Leave Obama alone; because if you leave him alone, and help him, he can get you across the desert.”
Minister Farrakhan went on to say: “Now pay close attention to this: New York Times writer Robert Draper, in his book titled “Inside the U.S. House of Representatives: Do Not Ask What Good We Do,” states that on the night of Obama’s inauguration, the Republicans met and plotted ways to win back political power. I want you to pay attention to this, because all that I am saying to you is fact! They met to “put the brakes” on Obama’s legislative platform! In the Huffington Post article published April 25, 2012 titled “Robert Draper Book: GOP’s Anti-Obama Campaign Started Night Of Inauguration,” it reviewed Draper’s book and included excerpts. The article states that the meeting lasted for 4 hours; and about 15 ruffians (the Masons and Shriners who read this, they know what I’m talking about!)—I mean, 15 members of the House of Representatives met. Three of them—(isn’t that number “3” interesting?), Eric Cantor from Virginia, Paul Ryan from Wisconsin and Newt Gingrich: They agreed to go after Timothy Geithner, and to show united and unyielding opposition to the president’s economic policies. Their job, according to the excerpts from Draper’s book, was to “jab Obama relentlessly in 2011” so that they would “win the White House and the Senate in 2012.” The article states: “‘You will remember this day,’ Draper reports Newt Gingrich as saying on the way out [of the meeting]. ‘You’ll remember this as the day the seeds of 2012 were sown.’”
“You’ll remember this day…”—because their intention was to destroy his presidency. Well, I do want you, Mr. Gingrich, Mr. Ryan and Mr. Cantor, and the other ruffians that were with you: I want you to remember that day! Because on that day you sowed the seeds of the destruction of the United States of America! Take it or let it alone!” (http://www.finalcall.com/artman/publish/Minister_Louis_Farrakhan_9/article_100874.shtml)
Minister Farrakhan warned America to not “hamstring the she-camel” which is exactly what the Republican leadership did in an act that should be charged as “treason” by vowing to block any program or legislation that Obama presented. In other words they were not concerned about the wellbeing of the American citizens; just destroy the Obama presidency at all costs, like the three ruffians who killed Hiram Abiff in Masonic lore. We are dealing with Satan here, not Georgia rednecks. Therefore, we need a leader that is being guided by God, not popular opinion or academic training.
When President Obama was elected and he and his beautiful Black family entered the White House, all of the pent up rage and frustration of white folk was taken out on him. Whites forgot about President Bush and Treasury Secretary Paulson caving in to Wall Street banks’ threat of economic ruin by bailing them out which still precipitated the worse economic depression since the Great Depression of the 1930s. Whites forgot about the lies that President Bush used to get America in wars in the Middle East and the US/Israeli “9/11” false flag operation. Instead President Obama and Black people in general were blamed for America’s economic downturn and unlike many whites who suffered because of the 2008-2009 financial crisis, Black people have not recovered. Police have been put in the role of “tax collectors” to cover down on the loss of wealth in their pension funds due to the loss in stock and bond values in their municipal and state retirement funds due to that same crash. Now the police, like a schoolyard bully, are riding up and down Black neighborhoods seeing who they can “legally” fleece. And when one of us gets out of line, they just shoot us down in cold blood to be a warning to the rest of us to just shut up and pay.
All of these police killings with no one serving time for the crime were perpetrated under the watchful, but seemingly powerless eyes, of a sitting Black president and two Black attorney generals. So what more death and destruction can we receive under a Trump presidency? However, it may not be a Trump presidency that many Black integrationists are afraid of. Trump is speaking to the hearts of those “Georgia rednecks” which Black integrationists had hoped had died out. Fifty years ago The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad warned us to not fall for the trick of integration. On the back of every Muhammad Speaks Newspaper he printed:
- “9. WE BELIEVE that the offer of integration is hypocritical and is made by those who are trying to deceive the black peoples into believing that their 400-year-old open enemies of freedom, justice and equality are, all of a sudden, their “friends.” Furthermore, we believe that such deception is intended to prevent black people from realizing that the time in history has arrived for the separation from the whites of this nation.”
Negro leadership backed by Jewish money in the 1960s preached integration. In general Black people fell for the trick and were deceived. If Trump wins, some Blacks will be ashamed to have to admit that the white devils are still alive and we should have listened to The Messenger and led our people to do something for ourselves. On the other hand if Hillary wins, it just proves that white people believe that she is a better “deceiver” than Trump. Trump’s followers just want Blacks to die or go away, while Hillary’s moral deviants, crooks and deceivers just want Blacks to “keep hope alive” and go to hell with them, arm in arm.
