Farrakhan Promotes Anti-Semitism & Violence In Lead Up To Oct. March

Nation of Islam (NOI) leader Louis Far­rakhan has invoked hate­ful anti-Semitic con­spir­acy the­o­ries and called for vio­lence against white peo­ple dur­ing his multi-city tour to pro­mote the Octo­ber 10 “Justice…Or Else!” Mil­lion Man March (MMM) in Wash­ing­ton, DC.farrakhan-justice-or-else-miami-2015

In his August 13 remarks at a church in Mil­wau­kee, Far­rakhan accused Jews of con­trol­ling the media, gov­ern­ment and econ­omy. Far­rakhan told the con­gre­ga­tion, “I’m talk­ing about the wicked ones in the Jew­ish com­mu­nity that run Amer­ica, run the gov­ern­ment, run the world, own the banks, own the means of com­mu­ni­ca­tion. They are my ene­mies! But as sure as I’m alive, my ene­mies will be made my foot­stool and so will yours.”

Far­rakhan also invoked the canard that Jews killed Jesus stat­ing, “Would the Jew had lis­tened to Jesus…but you rebelled against him and killed him.”

In his July 30 remarks in Miami, Far­rakhan asserted “A Jew is not a Jew by the cir­cum­ci­sion of the male organ but cir­cum­ci­sion of the heart.” Farrakhan’s Miami remarks also took a par­tic­u­larly mil­i­tant tone. He stated, “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!”

Far­rakhan employed sim­i­lar rhetoric in Mil­wau­kee, say­ing that the media have mis­rep­re­sented him as vio­lent because “white peo­ple deserve to die, and they know, so they think it’s us com­ing to do it.” He con­tin­ued, “Allahu akbar! God is great! We have no weapon! We bother nobody! Then if you come to take our life, don’t’ be sur­prised if you lose your own!”

In an effort to build sup­port for the “Justice…Or Else!” MMM, Far­rakhan has spo­ken in Wash­ing­ton, Philadel­phia, New York, Miami, Atlanta, Chicago, St. Louis, Hous­ton, Los Ange­les, Mil­wau­kee, and Memphis.

Malik Zulu Shabazz, the racist and anti-Semitic for­mer leader of the New Black Pan­ther Party and cur­rent leader of Black Lawyers for Jus­tice, has also actively been pro­mot­ing the event for the NOI in var­i­ous parts of the country.

The NOI has also orga­nized other local events led by African-American reli­gious and com­mu­nity lead­ers. Some MMM events have fea­tured sup­port from national, state, and local elected offi­cials, celebri­ties, and others.

Malik Zulu Shabazz Calls For Violence In Charleston, South Carolina

Malik Zulu Shabazz, the racist and anti-Semitic for­mer leader of the New Black Pan­ther Party (NBPP) and cur­rent head of Black Lawyers for Jus­tice (BLJ), trav­eled to Charleston, South Car­olina, where he called for vio­lence in the after­math of the shoot­ing that killed nine peo­ple at the Emanuel AME Church.

On June 23, Shabazz orga­nized a rally in front of the Emanuel AME Church billed as “National Rally #1 In Defense of the Black Church.” From the stage, Shabazz ref­er­enced  Den­mark Vesey, who in 1822 plot­ted a rebel­lion against slav­ery in which, accord­ing to PBS, he and oth­ers “planned to seize Charleston’s arse­nals and guard houses, kill the Gov­er­nor, set fire to the city, and kill every white man they saw.” Shabazz stated:

Den­mark Vesey had a plan to kill all the slave mas­ters in the state. Den­mark Vesey had a plan to kill every last one of them and kill all their god­damn fam­i­lies, and we need some new Den­mark Veseys today. We gotta com­plete what Den­mark didn’t fin­ish. He never fin­ished his mis­sion, but the real chil­dren of Den­mark Vesey is [sic] out here today.

Shabazz has planned a sec­ond rally he is call­ing “Rally to Bury White Supremacy: Mas­sive National Demon­stra­tion #2” sched­uled at the same loca­tion on June 27. Hashim Nzinga, the cur­rent chair­man of the NBPP attended the June 23 rally and is sched­uled to attend this one as well.

While Shabazz attempts to por­tray him­self as a civil rights leader, he con­tin­ues to inject his big­otry and vio­lent rhetoric into high-profile racially-charged events, inflam­ing already tense situations.

Pre­vi­ously, in the after­math of Fred­die Gray’s death in Bal­ti­more, Shabazz orga­nized protests and called for vio­lence against law enforce­ment on Fox News Radio’s “The Alan Colmes Show.” Shabazz told Colmes that “those young Bal­ti­more youth are liken to the Pales­tini­ans bat­tling an Israeli occupier…some peo­ple might need to get hurt in self-defense.”

These state­ments echoed those he made on Black Power Radio, where he jus­ti­fied the burn­ing down of a CVS and told his audi­ence that “We’re gonna stop all of this god­damn talk­ing and raise up an army and deal with you mother—ers.”

Sim­i­larly, after Michael Brown was killed by police in Fer­gu­son, Mis­souri, Shabazz and other NBPP lead­ers trav­eled to Fer­gu­son, aggra­vat­ing the sit­u­a­tion there. Shabazz led pro­test­ers in chants call­ing for the death of the offi­cer who shot Michael Brown. Using a mega­phone, Shabazz yelled, “Who do we want?” The pro­tes­tors responded, “Dar­ren Wil­son!” Shabazz: “How do we want him?” Pro­tes­tors: “Dead!”

In 2012, the NBPP, then under the lead­er­ship of Shabazz, also offered a $10,000 reward for the “cap­ture” of George Zim­mer­man, the man who shot and killed Trayvon Mar­tin in Florida.

Baltimore Protest Organizer Spouts Inflammatory Rhetoric On NBPP Radio

Malik Zulu Shabazz, the racist and anti-Semitic for­mer leader of the New Black Pan­ther Party (NBPP), who has taken credit for orga­niz­ing protests in Bal­ti­more in the after­math of Fred­die Gray’s death, went on the NBPP’s Black Power Radio ear­lier this week to express his inflam­ma­tory views.

While Shabazz has attempted to por­tray him­self as a civil rights leader in Bal­ti­more, he openly expressed his big­otry and praised the actions of riot­ers in Monday’s broad­cast of Black Power Radio.

Dur­ing this broad­cast, Shabazz praised pro­tes­tors “espe­cially the youth, who rose up like the Pales­tini­ans did, rose up against the police state, rose up against occu­pa­tion, rose up and caused a rebel­lion in the streets.”

In response to claims that riot­ers are dam­ag­ing their own com­mu­nity, Shabazz asked, “What do you mean our com­mu­nity? How much of it did we own? Forty-four of the stores that were burned down in Bal­ti­more were owned by out­siders or Kore­ans. We didn’t own those stores.”

Shabazz also jus­ti­fied the burn­ing down of a CVS claim­ing that such stores are “tak­ing all our money…what really has CVS done for our com­mu­nity? They gave out a few jobs and took a whole bunch of money from us.”

While dis­cussing those who do not agree with his tac­tics, Shabazz stated, “There are a lot of haters out there against Attor­ney Shabazz [and] the New Black Pan­ther Party. And we’re gonna stop all this god­damn talk­ing and raise up an army and deal with you motherf—ers.”

By appear­ing on Black Power Radio, Shabazz, who stepped down from his lead­er­ship role with the Pan­thers in 2013, reaf­firmed his con­tin­ued involve­ment with the NBPP, the largest orga­nized anti-Semitic and racist Black mil­i­tant group in America.

In the same broad­cast, Hashim Nzinga, the cur­rent leader of the NBPP, injected anti-Semitism into the dis­cus­sion, employ­ing a com­mon trope of his: that a sup­pos­edly Jewish-controlled media nefar­i­ously por­trays Black peo­ple in a neg­a­tive light. “And with your Jew­ish and your mostly meno­rah, I mean major­ity, uh, minority-owned TV sta­tions, going to paint a pic­ture like something’s wrong with us,” Nzinga stated.

Nzinga also offered inflam­ma­tory lan­guage describ­ing a “geno­cide” tak­ing place in Amer­ica. “That’s all in you, white man, is to fight and kill. And when you can’t fight or kill, you go hunt…You’ve got to be killing some­thing. And right now, it’s killing the Black man off.” He added, “We ain’t gonna let you do it no more.”

The NBPP com­monly takes on racially-charged issues under the guise of cham­pi­oning civil rights as they also did in the after­math of the shoot­ing of Michael Brown in Fer­gu­son and Trayvon Mar­tin. How­ever, the group’s demon­stra­tions, con­fer­ences, and other events often blend inflam­ma­tory big­otry with calls for vio­lence, tar­nish­ing its efforts to pro­mote Black pride and consciousness.
