As Americans awaken to dangers to our homeland, they are losing confidence in President Obama. A new poll shows Americans’ confidence in President Obama’s efforts to keep us safe after the Paris jihadist attacks is dropping.
Jim Simpson, author of “Red-Green Axis: Refugees, Immigration and the Agenda to Erase America,” has no confidence in the screening or border security policies of the Obama administration. To Simpson, a host of open border policies — including the Refugee Resettlement Program — provide a fertile ground for terrorists to enter the United States.
In this 25-minute video interview, he says, “This president and this administration have little if any concern for the welfare of American citizens. They are all about advancing their agenda and amassing political power at the expense of our welfare, our safety, everything. They are greedy for power.”
Simpson suggests the rallying cry for congressional Republicans should be a rider offered by Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions on the coming omnibus spending bill. It would, for once, cancel the “blank check” President Obama has for refugee resettlement in the coming government funding bill, giving us “a genuine pause” to ensure our government can protect us.
Last week, the House passed a cobbled-together H.R. 4038 by 289-137 with bipartisan support. To Simpson, H.R. 4038 was wholly inadequate to guarantee the government’s ability to stop the flow of dangerous immigrants and ensure our safety.
As for the narrative war being waged by President Obama and others against critics of refugees, Simpson reminds us that the Left’s primary counter-argument is always to vilify and destroy their opposition.
The progressives’ goal with open borders, Simpson says, is to overwhelm America with problems while creating a huge new pool of Democrat voters who will only be needed to achieve left-wing goals. Many believe the Left’s efforts to stop voter ID laws, cast as “racist,” is related to the influx of potential new immigrant voters.
Simpson discusses the Left’s desire to turn Texas blue, and how the state has received more refugees than any other region in the union. Refugees who are put on a fast track to citizenship, Simpson says, are eligible for all government assistance citizens can get, and even other programs, including a special matched savings program.
There are more compassionate and cost-effective alternatives that help refugees more than bringing them to America, Simpson reminds us, calling refugee advocates “greedy” for their own pecuniary interests.
Contrary to claims that refugees are being screened, FBI Director James Comey testified to Congress on the inadequacy of government screening and the non-existence of databases that exist from failed states.
With over half of the nation’s governors objecting to unscreened Syrian refugees coming in their states, Simpson advises more citizens to get educated and raise their voices to federal, state and local leaders. The White House is monitoring “pockets of resistance” for their “New Americans Program” being led out of the Obama White House. But ever since presidential candidate Donald Trump put immigration squarely in the public eye, Simpson thinks this policy and national sovereignty will be determining issues in the 2016 presidential elections.
The three things he wants more people to know about the refugee program are: (1) The inordinate influence of the United Nations in determining the bulk of who comes to America; (2) Governors, mayors and Congress have almost no say in the refugee resettlement process; and (3) Refugees are but one program bringing in outsiders who could threaten our national security.

The serially dishonest administration, represented abysmally by Haute Moron Secretary of State, John Kerry, has haughtily announced that for FY 2016, starting October 1, the administration is raising the refugee cap from its previous 70,000 to 85,000, this year, and up to 100,000 next year, all to make room for Syrian “refugees.” Two weeks ago he told members of Congress the administration wanted to bring in 10,000 Syrians. Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley responded with a letter asking Kerry to clarify.
The administration initially proposed raising the cap to 75,000, but Assistant Secretary of State for Population, Refugees, and Migration, Ann Richard admitted they might add “more later.” The refugee resettlement industry, which makes about $1 billion/year placing refugees in our communities, is lobbying for 200,000, including 100,000 Syrians. Even Moveon.org has joined the campaign.
Additionally, Obama promised to use other avenues, like parole, asylum and temporary protected status to allow more Syrians. Grassley reminded them that they did not have independent authority to do this. Increasing the cap requires consultation with Congress by law. As it turns out, the law also requires hearings – which to this point Congress has never deemed necessary. Perhaps it’s time for a change.
The FBI has said it cannot vet Syrians for jihadi connections or sympathies because Syria is a “failed state.” Even Obama’s own Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, has said that the threat of ISIS infiltrating America by hiding among Syrian refugees is a “huge concern.” ISIS has very publicly warned it will do just that and claims to have 4,000 fighters in Western Europe already. Even among Syrian refugees, a fifth claim ISIS is a positive influence in the world! Warnings have been issued that 2 in every 100 Syrian refugees is an ISIS fighter. Do the math, of 15,000 that would equate to 300 members of ISIS here in the U.S.
Despite these facts, in an almost surreal display of ignorance, defiance, carelessness, vindictiveness, or perhaps some combination, Secretary Richard has said that the vetting process for Syrians will be “streamlined.” The Pope, who is rapidly revealing himself to be of the Liberation Theology (i.e. Marxist) persuasion, will almost certainly use his visit this week to shame Congress into taking Syrians.
Do American lives matter at all to these people? That is actually a rhetorical question at this point. The answer is plainly a resounding “no.” A column at Allen West’s website pointed out yesterday that the administration can’t afford to shell out $100 million to provide bullet proof glass for Marine recruiting offices, despite the recent Chattanooga murder of four Marines and a Sailor. Yet the benefits gladly afforded “refugees” amount to significantly more than that.
Refugees jump to the front of the line for all welfare available to Americans and some we can’t even get. Following is a laundry list of promised benefits to arriving refugees:
- a furnished home
- help with rent
- health care
- nutritious, affordable food
- English language classes
- help building job, computer & financial literacy skills
- education for their children
- social services and community support
- legal services toward residency & citizenship”
As a result of this preferential treatment, the wait list for public housing in Manchester, NH, for example, has jumped from a few weeks to five years. But not for refugees. They are placed immediately. And as we have seen, the refugee population is increasingly toxic — a huge number are Muslims and many are turning to terrorism. The American Somali Muslim population is fertile recruiting ground for ISIS and other terrorist groups. The Chattanooga shooter’s family originally settled in the U.S. as refugees. And now the administration plans to bring in a group of people guaranteed to seed ISIS operatives among our communities? Mall beheadings and mass shootings anyone? More “workplace violence?”
This cannot stand.
With its usual stupidity, Congressional leadership has evaded the appropriations process and will attempt to avoid a government shutdown by passing a continuing resolution (CR) prior to the start of the fiscal year. That is 10 days away.
We hereby demand Congress insert a one-line provision in the CR:
No funding shall be provided for bringing Syrians into the U.S. under any program.
I urge you to call the GOP House and Senate Appropriations Committees, their Chairmen and members, House and Senate leadership, and your GOP reps and senators. Unfortunately the Democrats have already boldly signaled their contempt for America. They are a lost cause.
If you live in a state where one of these members resides, be sure to call that member in every single one of his/her offices. Also you can find the contact information for your own reps and senators here:

It should not take longer than a few minutes to blast through these calls.
Will Congress for once stand up for the American people and prevent this malevolent administration from visiting even more misery on us? Or will it wilt under pressure from the organized Left, which now includes the Pope, guaranteeing future mass murder in our midst?
Syrian immigration, under any program, is an immediate, existential threat to America.
American lives matter. Demand Congress act. Make the calls!
By: James Simpson
President Obama and his rancid leftist allies have subjected America to a blizzard of lies. Nothing that leaves his mouth even remotely parrots the truth, but typically stands truth on its head. The propaganda infrastructure spanning media, Hollywood, non-profit institutions and the halls of academia then erects a virtually impenetrable wall of disinformation to advance the lie.
They have just foisted on us a “deal” with Iran that threatens to create a holocaust, the likes of which America, and perhaps the world, has never seen. As Iran chanted “death to America” and “death to Israel,” this “deal” somehow skirted the advice and consent role reserved to the U.S. Senate. While we are afflicted with many feckless, incompetent and corrupt Republican Senators — never mind the Democrats — the “deal” could have never obtained the requisite approval of 2/3ds of senators. The lies about the “deal” are too numerous to catalog, and before the ink has even dried, Iran has suddenly “discovered” massive stockpiles of uranium it never knew it had!
Now the administration wants to use the refugee resettlement program to import a flood of Syrian immigrants into the U.S. It will virtually guarantee an opening for ISIS and other terrorists to establish bases in the U.S. legally with taxpayer dollars. Obama created his own 9-11 in Benghazi. Apparently that wasn’t enough. Now he wants one here.
The flood of Syrian “refugees” into Europe has been called an invasion. That is clearly an apt description. While there are certainly heart-rending stories, many coming to Europe are opportunists. 72 percent are men — mostly of military age. Only 15 percent are children and 13 percent women, according to the U.N. Many are not destitute, paying thousands of dollars and embarking on long, expensive trips to reach Europe. Furthermore, half are not even Syrians but
German Chancellor Angela Merkel opened her arms to these “migrants,” agreeing to take hundreds of thousands, but the German people are outraged. Why would Merkel do this to her own country? Is it that Merkel’s shady work for the East German Communist Party never stopped? Is Merkel assisting the Russians in their ambition to take over Europe? A biography written by two German journalists argues she has never abandoned the communism of her youth. This may explain her attitude toward the refugees now threatening to collapse the country.
Obama and the Left want the same thing here. Approximately 1,500 Syrians gained access to the U.S. this fiscal year. Obama intends to allow at least 10,000 more in FY 2016 — which starts October 1. Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX), chair of the House Homeland Security Committee stated in an interview Thursday that Syrian refugees cannot be vetted for jihadist connections. “(I)t would be highly irresponsible to start bringing them in, when they could be potential terrorists, and provide a sort of a jihadist pipeline into the United States,” he said, adding, “We did this in Iraq when we had very good intelligence, and we brought in several that had already killed Americans.” McCaul joins the director of the FBI and even Obama’s Director of national intelligence James Clapper, who have both issued similar warnings.
In its recruitment documents, ISIS claims to seek “the end of the world.” ISIS has claimed 4,000 jihadis are already in Europe and it plans to similarly exploit weaknesses in the U.S. refugee program. On Sunday, an ISIS terrorist was arrested in Germany posing as a refugee. German customs has also seized 10,000 passports being smuggled into Germany, for possible use by terrorists in country. Finally, Merkel appears to have had a change of heart. Sunday afternoon Germany shut down the border, “for urgent security reasons.” All trains from Austria have been stopped.
In light of these hard facts, the Obama administration’s plan to bring in 10,000 Syrians is insane. But 10,000 is just the tip of the iceberg. In August, the administration said it would take between 5,000 and 8,000. U.S. Ambassador to Iraq, Brent McGurk said that 17,000 Syrians had applied with the U.N. for refugee status in the U.S. (Note: by law, the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) chooses virtually all of America’s refugees). At the same time, the Obama administration signaled it may use an alternative “parole” procedure to grant entry to even more Syrians. Already, about 5,000 Syrians now in the U.S. have applied for “Temporary Protected Status,” a program for illegals fleeing war or natural disasters. Most TPS illegals simply reapply when the status expires — de facto amnesty.
Back in June, 14 Democratic U.S. senators called for America to accept 65,000 Syrian refugees. They quickly earned the nickname “Jihad Caucus.” The UNHCR had called on Western nations to take 130,000 Syrians, and since the U.S. resettles half of all refugees recommended by the U.N. (yes we do — more than all other resettlement countries combined), our magic number should be 65,000.
But it wasn’t even the senators who actually fronted that number. It originated with the Refugee Council USA, the lobbying arm of the out-of-control, serially corrupt U.S. refugee resettlement industry. And yes it is an industry. There are nine so-called “voluntary agencies” (VOLAGs) that contract with the federal government to resettle refugees. While they are classified as tax-exempt non-profits, this is a massive profit center — earning them close to $1 billion in 2014. That comes out to almost $8,000 per-head. And since the current annual refugee cap is 70,000, double the refugees, double the income — it’s simple math.
But the insanity does not stop there. The VOLAGs have screamed for many more. The Lutheran Immigrant Aid Society, which earns 97 percent of its income from taxpayers, has demanded the U.S. import 100,000 Syrians, and raise the overall refugee cap from its current 70,000 to 200,000. Cha ching!
But they were not even the first. Inexplicably, the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society has suggested we may need to resettle 200,000 Syrians. Initially founded to resettle Jewish refugees, HIAS is now one of the largest Muslim resettlement agencies. Blatantly disregarding the safety of its fellow Jews and its own heritage, HIAS conveniently overlooks the fact that despite their refugee status, Syrians are not desperate enough to forget Israel, still calling it their number one enemy.
So not surprisingly, the VOLAGs are outraged that the administration is saying “only” 10,000 Syrians. Democratic legislators have carried the VOLAGs’ water, chiming in that 10,000 are “not enough.” The Pope, who has already shown his Marxist colors, is trying to convince Catholics to join the call for more. Now the entire radical leftist infrastructure has jumped on board. Moveon.org is demanding 100,000Syrians, and a new, particularly evil organization called We Welcome Refugees appealed to churches to raise the issue with their congregations on Sunday, September 13. They provide sample scripts, videos and other information churches could use.
We Welcome Refugees is a project of World Relief, one of the VOLAGs. WR received $41.2 million in government grants in 2014, 75 percent of total revenues. Your tax dollars are being spent to lobby churches so World Relief can make more money. Is this not criminal activity? It is certainly illegal for World Relief to do so. Has the IRS investigated this “non-profit?” Will it ever?
All the outrage ginned up in this massive PR campaign is clearly tactical. Expect the Obama administration to “give in” and up the numbers dramatically. In FY 2015, 97 percent of Syrian refugees resettled in the U.S. were Muslim. Ask the VOLAGs how many Syrian Christians they intend to resettle. They cannot answer. Do you know why? Resettlement agencies are not allowed to ask! If they claim to seek Christian converts they lie. VOLAGs are prohibited from proselytizing.
None of the Gulf States are taking any refugees, despite the fact that they share a culture, religion and language with the Syrians, and have money to burn. China, Russia and all the countries of the former East Bloc, have refused to take any as well. Why should America take them? Under President Obama, do we not have enough problems of our own?
It is high time for Congress to call out the administration on the destructive, out-of-control refugee resettlement program. We have initiated a petition to demand changes. Please sign it. Congressman Brian Babin has proposed legislation (HR 3314) suspending the program. It needs companion legislation in the Senate and more Congressional support.
Now we need congressional hearings to reveal the refugee resettlement agenda for what it is. It has been flying under the radar for decades while our local communities are being transformed into unrecognizable third-world camps, where refugees overwhelm local governments with demands for social services while they join illegal immigrants in stealing our jobs. Call on your legislators stop the Syrian invasion and demand hearings!
Obama is the personification of the American radical Left — a force of pure, malevolent evil intent on destroying our country. He is the Cloward Piven president. Refugee resettlement as currently structured is Cloward Piven on steroids. It is literally an agenda to erase America.
This shocking video describes the imminent threat we face as the State Department moves to secretly bring 65,000 unvetted Syrians to America under Obama’s regime with no local knowledge or control.
The federal Refugee Resettlement (RR) program is operated today by the Global Left, the UN, Islam, and religious frauds. The goal is to Change America by Changing its People.
As a result, we are drowning in refugees who are destroying our Constitutional freedoms, overburdening our welfare system and posing a genuine national security threat.
Will you as an American citizen stand up and fight this national suicide via LEGAL IMMIGRATION?
By signing this petition, you are telling your Governor and state representatives to take specific action to allow City and County Councils to decide if their budgets can support refugee resettlement and if their people want it!
What’s needed is a proviso to your state budget such as this:
No state funds shall be expended to assist in the U.S. Refugee Resettlement Program unless the community targeted for resettlement approves.
Sign the petition if these are your words:
I will not tolerate giving my tax dollars to secretly “planted”, unvetted refugees that would otherwise go to aid poor families in my community.
I demand you do your job by representing the Will of The People rather than the Resettlement industry that may be funding your campaigns.
Once you have signed the petition, check to see your signature among your fellow patriots marked on the interactive map.

Red-Green Axis: Refugees, Immigration and the Agenda to Erase America
Mr. Simpson’s copious documentation and fact-based findings chart the trajectory of the refugee resettlement industry. The Red-Green Axis illuminates the impetus that industry received early on via the United Nation’s Human Settlement Policy – a plan to redistribute, not just wealth, but population and land. Mr. Simpson proceeds to show how this plan is being inexorably advanced by today’s secretive and unaccountable federal refugee resettlement programs – operations that have brought nearly 2 million refugees from Muslim nations to this country since September 11, 2001.

* Satire, but you won’t believe what Hillary is doing on tax policy. It is virtually identical to Bill’s 1992 platform, when he made sweeping promises to enact a big middle class tax cut then denied it after being elected. This is surely Hillary’s plan too. After all it worked once, and those stupid Americans won’t remember…
By: James Simpson
Imagining a Clinton presidency in its earliest stages
What might the election of America’s first female president look like? But not just any first female president — the election of President Hillary Clinton?
Here, with a little imagination and a little kicking back, is the inside track on what Hillary Clinton’s highest policy priorities might be during her first 100 days in the Oval Office, should that come to pass.
Make college affordable: In launching a new consumer-friendly college loan program, Hillary takes her inspiration from former Fannie Mae CEO Frank Raines, who promised the agency would underwrite $3 trillion in subprime mortgages to help the “little guy.” After all, homeownership is a civil right. The ensuing mortgage meltdown was just bad timing. But it was Bush’s fault anyway. Well, a college education is a civil right too!
In explaining her rationale for the program, Hillary describes her touching personal brush with poverty and her enduring identification with the lower classes. “We came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt. We had no money when we got there and we struggled to piece together the resources for mortgages, for houses, for Chelsea’s education. It was not easy.”
Hillary’s new program guarantees that no American (including the Clintons) will ever have to suffer the deprivation she and her family were forced to endure in order to send Chelsea to Stanford University.
Wealthiest pay their fair share: Hillary’s tax policy is simple — the rich make too much money. It is not fair! As senator, she heroically opposed the Bush tax cuts, saying, “Many of you are well enough off that the tax cuts may have helped you. We’re saying that for America to get back on track, we’re probably going to cut that short and not give it to you. We’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good.” She brings this refreshing attitude to her new job. Her new plan promises to “Reform our tax code so that the wealthiest pay their fair share.” After all, the top 20 percent of income earners pay a mere 84 percent of all income taxes. Clearly, not enough.
Middle class tax cut: Yes, you read that right. Hillary proposes a big middle-class tax cut just like hubby Bill did in his 1992 campaign. But don’t worry. Remember what Bill did after his election? Raised everyone’s taxes! Hillary plans to do the exact same thing. Bait and switch. Tee, hee, hee. Like our good friend Jonathan Gruber says, those stupid Americans will believe anything.
Raise middle-class incomes: Hillary says “it’s time to raise incomes for hard-working Americans.” She plans to do this by 1) increasing the minimum wage (because $15 an hour just isn’t enough); 2) expanding overtime (whether companies need it or not); 3) encouraging companies to profit share with employees — about time; 4) strengthening Obamacare; and 5) increasing workers’ pay and benefits, plus a lot more paid leave.
Why hasn’t anyone ever thought of this before? While it may seem that all these things cost companies money, Hillary has an answer to that too: Expand employment opportunities.
As we all know, foreign policy is one of Hillary’s strong points given her time as President Obama’s secretary of state. Her tenure was marked by numerous foreign policy challenges, all of which she met with characteristic Clinton class and determination. Benghazi, as we all know, was Bush’s fault. And for those who question her handling of the affair, she asks in her characteristically presidential tone, “What difference, at this point, does it make?”
When queried about her vast knowledge of Islam and Islamic terrorism, Hillary credits, surprisingly, her daughter, Chelsea. “I have to admit that a good deal of what my husband and I have learned [about Islam] has come from my daughter. [As] some of you who are our friends know, she took a course last year in Islamic history.” Think of it. A woman with such a breadth of foreign policy experience credits her daughter! She took a course. That makes Hillary a true expert.
Power the economy of tomorrow: This brilliant program expresses the aspirations of millions of Americans in reducing our carbon footprint. In announcing her plan she says, “You know, we can’t keep talking about our dependence on foreign oil and the need to deal with global warming and the challenge that it poses to our climate and to God’s creation and just let business as usual go on, and that means something has to be taken away from some people.”
Hillary’s plan is to put 500 million solar panels on roofs across America — for free — and increase green energy to 33 percent of the total by 2027. Of course, to see it through will require a third Hillary term, but who could oppose that?
While American energy producers will suffer after years of raping the planet, China and Taiwan, which produce 70 percent of the world’s photovoltaic cells, will prosper immeasurably, redistributing income to those parts of the world that really deserve it. So this environmentally friendly measure will be a boon for international trade.
But not all U.S. companies will suffer. Perish the thought. Hillary will made sure tax dollars flow in the right direction and boost the American economy at the same time. Companies to benefit include First Solar, whose investors include major Obama campaign bundlers, billionaire Paul Tudor Jones, green thumber Al Gore, Ted Turner, Goldman Sachs.
First Solar’s CEO is Michael Ahearn, a former fundraiser for both Obama and Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada. Another one, NRG Energy, got a $1.2 billion Department of Energy loan guarantee from the Obama administration, whose bundler, Arvia Few, was married to then NRG executive vice president Jason Few. What a coincidence, no? NRG will now be able to afford even more green energy jobs.
Finally, it looks like Elon Musk, president of SolarCity, Tesla Motors, and a major Clinton Library donor, will be able to snag even more tax money to fund his government-subsidized electric sports car.
In this scenario, we now have a president willing to tackle America’s greatest national security threat, global warming, while boosting the world economy at the same time. It is not for nothing that Hillary Clinton has been called “the smartest woman in the world.”
Hillary 2024! Because, after all, the first woman president deserves at least three terms.

Louis Farrakhan is at it again… calling for civil unrest and the murder of all whites. No matter how many times he screams for violence from the pulpit, the media just yawns and he is mostly ignored. Except for the 50,000 or so who follow the Nation of Islam and Louis Farrakhan. They are listening very closely and preparing – for war. Late last month, Farrakhan called for blacks to “rise up” and “kill those who kill us” if the federal government fails to “intercede in our affairs.” In other words, if Obama doesn’t step up moving forward towards a race war, the Nation of Islam will do it for him. Farrakhan delivered his calls for an uprising on July 30th in a speech given at Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Miami. Shame on the Baptists for letting this vile race monger preach evil from their church.
“The Koran teaches persecution is worse than slaughter. Then it says, retaliation is prescribed in matters of the slain. Retaliation is a prescription from God to calm the breaths of those whose children have been slain,” Farrakhan intoned. “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,” he thundered.
Notice how they applaud this man. The congregants smile and cheer his racist, murderous words. They embrace his vile, hateful speech. Why isn’t the government looking into this incitement to violence? It is a call to slaughter white Americans and revolt. And the crowd went wild for it. Comments were all over the place stating that people would rather die fighting the white man than see black brothers and sisters die at the hands of white supremacy. May I just say, huh? Blacks are not being rounded up and murdered in the streets. Not by cops or anyone else. This is a false, wicked narrative that justifies a race war and it is gathering steam out there.
This video was on Farrakhan’s Facebook page. He included the lovely hashtag: “#JusticeOrElse.” Next month in DC, he’ll be rallying the troops in a demonstration that is meant to commemorate the 20th anniversary of his 1995 Million Man March. It should be filled with hate and possibly violence as Farrakhan brings his words and threats to life. Or should I say, ‘death.’ I consider Farrakhan to be a racist and a terrorist. The Nation of Islam is a terrorist organization as well. This is par for the course for the Religion of Peace.
Don’t let Farrakhan’s age of 82 make you think he is passe and weak. He’s anything but that and when he delivers one of his fiery speeches he commands huge numbers of acolytes who are more than willing to kill for their cause. He’s a dangerous snake. When Farrakhan calls for “10,000 fearless men who say death is sweeter than continued life under tyranny,” he’s got them lining up and volunteering in the aisles. “Death is sweeter than to continue to live and bury our children while white folks give the killer hamburgers. Death is sweeter than watching us slaughter each other to the joy of a 400-year-old enemy,” the radical orator told the faithful.
Close at hand to Farrakhan was Carlos Muhammad who leads the Baltimore chapter of the Nation of Islam. He is a devoted disciple of the minister of hate. Remember that the Nation of Islam also crashes press conferences and shows up in the guise of guarding others from violence and offers to take care of them. Much like the mafia would. They were right there with Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake in April following the first day of rioting in Baltimore after the death of Freddie Gray. That was no coincidence or accident. It was by coordination and design.
Following the Dylan Storm Roof murders in Charleston, South Carolina there have been confrontations between the New Black Panthers and the KKK. Then a black man who defended the Confederate flag was forced off the road and killed by members of a group of men that I would bet money on belonging to the New Black Panthers or the Nation of Islam. Between incidents like these and every time there is the death of a black individual that involves a police officer, racial tensions are ratcheting up more and more every day.
“If we are denied what rightfully belongs to us then there has to be unified action that we take that will force the justice that we seek.” − The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan
As James Simpson put it in a comment on Farrakhan’s incitement, this is agitation and provocation, not speech.
Farrakhan is a master strategist and orator. It was not by chance that he chose Mt. Zion Baptist Church to give his furnace blast of a speech and a call to arms. This church has served as a meeting place for the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and other civil rights leaders. The church was packed and several dozen couldn’t get in because it was filled to capacity. They lined up around the block to get in.
From the Miami Herald:
Two decades after the historic march in Washington, D.C., a rally will be held on the mall on Oct. 10. According to the Washington Post, leaders across the country are coordinating an effort to attend the event. This time organizers hope to attract a diverse cross-section of people, including Native and Hispanic Americans, to a rally that is being promoted with the hashtag #JusticeOrElse on social media.
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.
Farrakhan said it was necessary to return to the site of the Million Man March to demand justice.
“We want to go back to Washington to demand from the government what we have paid for with our sweat and blood,” he said.
Farrakhan called for the Million Man March in 1995, when hundreds of thousands of African American men descended on the National Mall for one of the largest gatherings in U.S. history. The theme of the march was to promote family values and dedication to the community among black men. Men from an array of backgrounds and classes attended the historic march.
As the leader of the Nation of Islam and a prominent public figure, 82-year-old Farrakhan is noted for his outspoken commentary on social and political issues. In June, he announced the October rally at Metropolitan African Methodist Episcopal Church in Washington, D.C., where he pointed to recent police shootings and the mass killing at a church in South Carolina while criticizing race relations in America.
“Yes, all lives matter, but the only reason you’re here is because black lives are being slaughtered,” Farrakhan said to the crowd on June 24, according to the Associated Press.
Louis Farrakhan hates America and he hates white people. He’s also a virulent antisemite. He hates the police, our laws and our Constitution. He is promoting a full blown race war and wholesale murder. Americans are the enemy to him: “Who are we fighting today? It’s the people that carry the American flag,” Farrakhan continued. “What flag do the police have? What flag flies over the non-Justice Department? What flag flies over the White House?” This is a man who demands Shariah Law. A man who would subjugate America to radical Islam and eradicate the white population. He is absolutely evil and as his final act on this earth, he may just bring full scale civil war if he gets his way.
Barack Obama has dined and hung out with Farrakhan. Here’s a relevant quote from the minister:
“The cracker don’t have no authority over me”
“I’m a guided man, and Allah has blessed me to get you this far”
“Since i’ve been on this tour, I’ve been telling the people – that God wants to give you the promised land”
“I know the messiah – I am taught by the messiah – because my work is messaianic”
“I can never forget Iran – Iran has beautiful Muslims. You don’t know how much our Muslim world is anxious to see the enemy handcuffed. …the enemy – the British and the Americans have created all of that havoc in the Islamic world. And imagine us rising up in America at a time.
Sounds like he has a lot in common with Obama, doesn’t it? Between racism, Iran and an overwhelming hatred of America, they could be brothers.
It’s funny… Christian pastors can quietly and strongly stand for their freedom of religion and traditional marriage, and they are denounced and pilloried for it. But if you let a black Muslim minister call for the death of all whites in America, no one seems to care or notice. The leader of the largest Muslim movement in America is openly calling for a race war and we hear next to nothing about it in the media. I imagine we soon will – it’s Farrakhan’s legacy and parting gift to America that I worry about.
