Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan has been among the vocal voices weighing in on calls for justice for Trayvon Martin, an unarmed 17-year-old who was gunned down last month while walking home in Sanford, Florida. On Wednesday, a march was held in New York City in support of the teens family, as federal and local authorities launch investigations into how the incident unfolded and why the states stand your ground law applied to the shooter in this case.
On Twitter yesterday and today, Farrakhan sent some curious tweets regarding peace, justice and retaliation that could be interpreted as a veiled threat.
Where there is no justice, there will be no peace. Soon the law of retaliation may very well be applied, Farrakhan wrote, including the hashtag #Trayvon to clarify the subject of his angst. Let us see what kind of justice will come for his bereaved family and our bereaved community, he said in the previous social media message:

The text of his justice and peace tweet raises eyebrows. While one cannot know whether he is merely commenting generally on social responses to injustice or whether he is calling for the law of retaliation, the lack of clarity in his messaging raises questions.
In follow-up tweets throughout the day on Wednesday and Thursday, he had more to say regarding the tragedy and injustice more generally:

The fruit of justice is peace. But justice is a principle of fair dealing, he writes in another tweet. When we fail to do justice, we literally set up conditions that destroy peace. And in his most recent tweet, Farrakhan writes, Think. Reflect. Then get up and do something for self or suffer the consequences.
These messages follow a tweet that Farrakhan sent referencing text from a 2007 sermon. This same article is referenced on the front page of the Nation of Islams media outlet, The Final Call, as well. In the article, entitled, Justifiable Homicide: Black Youth In Peril Pt. 1, the minister claims that there has been a great display of anti-Black hatred in the United States of America of late.
Additionally, he laments discriminatory actions against African Americans and claims that Black youths have not been informed of the price that their forefathers payed to give them their current lifestyles. Farrakhan uses the words the enemy to describe those educating Black youths and says that African Americans have suffered at the hands of a wicked oppressor. He writes:
I recently had a conversation with the legendary Harry Belafonte, who many young people probably dont even know. Brother Harry was lecturing at Howard University, and he said the thing that hurt him was that our young people did not even know the recent struggle in the Civil Rights Movement. And that is why a movie could come out called Barber Shop, and Rosa Parks and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. could be made light of, shocking the older people in the audience while the younger people laughed. It is not their fault; the youth have not been informed. The sad thing is that we expect the enemy to inform them when it is our duty and our responsibility to, but we are so busy chasing a dollar. We are so fascinated by the material strength of America that we have failed to sit down with our children and teach them the horror of what Black people have suffered in America and throughout the world at the hands of a wicked oppressor. [...]
I do not want you to think that I am trying to teach hatred; that is beneath the dignity of a Muslim, or a Christian or a believer in God. But to teach the truth that might produce hatred, that is not my fault. If the truth of something makes you dislike it, then that is not teaching hatethat is teaching truth.
In addition to recapping his historical vision of the horrific atrocities that were waged against African Americans in America and abroad, Farrakhan takes aim at police officers with some startling claims.
I want Black youth to hear this message, because police authorities are the same today as they were during slavery, he alleges. In fact, this is how policing began. Police were formed to catch runaway slaves, bring them back to their masters and make examples of them to throw fear into other slaves. Its the same today.
Earlier this month, Glenn Beck also discussed the threats that The Nation recently published against him. The Blazes Tiffany Gabbay recapped Becks description:
You havent lived until youve been threatened by the Nation of Islam and sometimes, you dont live after the Nation of Islam threatens your life.
Those were the opening remarks of a segment on Tuesday evenings episode of the Glenn Beck Program in which Glenn revealed how he was threatened by none other than rabid Antisemite Louis Farrakhan or at least by his henchmen at The Nation.
The NOI official newspaper wrote over the weekend that Glenn Beck is a minion of the Synagogue of Satan and as such represents the thinking of those used as their low-level pawns.
The author continued: The Holy Quran teaches Muslims to never be the aggressor in word or deed, but if attacked, we fight with those who fight with us.

Blacks have a civil right to form lynch mobs and string up Whitey.
Isn’t Incitement To Murder Across State Lines a FEDERAL FELONY???
Or does that, like so many of our other laws now, not apply if DONE-WHILE-DEMOCRAT?
Agree. If we had responsible journalists instead of political activists who behave like Tabloid reporters, we'd be spared much of this crap.
Guess I should have added a ‘sarc’ tag. Not surprised at all nor are all the folks who are arming themselves - they aren’t buying guns because sporting clays suddenly became more popular than football. So Louis .... go ahead and “pull!”
Uhh...Farrakook, you may not want to go there.
Two British tourists were murdered in Newtown, a minority neighborhood in Sarasota FL, last year by one or more black youths about the same age as Treyvon. Funny thing, I didn’t hear any outcry from Zerobama, Sharpton or Calypso Louie about that. I believe that black perps murdering white victims far outnumber white perps murdering black victims.
They want another Kent State. What they’re going to end up with is another Skidmore.
Every time i hear this clown i wonder what would happen if the roles were reversed. What if Farakkhan was the Grand poo bah of the KKK and he said this after a black man killed a white man. We all know this is hypothetical, as anyone who has watched the MSM knows, blacks never consider race as they murder us at a rate 7 to 1 that we murder them. But just suppose.
Would the white President call the family commiserating that if he had a son, he would look like (Gilbert Smith) and promise to find justice? Would race haters like the white version of Farakkhan have Yahoo! front page?
When it comes to race I have to agree with Morgan Freeman. “the end of the race problem is for me to see you as a man, and for you to see me as a man. Not for you to see me as a black man and for me to see you as a white man”
Or if a couple of white guys caught, raped, tortured and brutally murdered young, innocent "Tray" and his girlfriend, pouring chemicals down her throat and wrapping her in trash bags to suffocate to death in a dumpster, this hole thing would be a "non-issue" to Faggotkhan?
Being shot by a latino named Zimmerman after smashing the back of his head and pummeling his face makes this all about the oppression of whitey.
Race baiters Sharpton and Farrakhan have been handed this by Soros and told to run with it and run effin' hard.
Where is/was Calypso Louis’ outrage with the death of Donald Young - did I miss it? Talk about “no justice, no peace”! Eeesh!
There are no white race hate and blame studies but if there were, I would bet blacks have murdered more whites in the US than have blacks been murdered by whites.
Back in the late eighties a study of FBI stats came out showing that from the 60’s to the 80’s Blacks had murdered more whites than Americans who were killed in the Viet Nam war. The title of the article was “America’s silent civil war.” Rape statistics were not included.
It is a big deal when the NOI and president start race baiting and calling for racial revenge like this. I imagine whites have already been murdered from this incident.
Wonder how they're going rationalize the democrat pro-nobama Hispanic guy into a white conservative Republican? By name only ain't going to hold up real well, especially when the shites begin to encounter the rotary air moving device.
Justice, justice, justice!!! We hear this word all day every day, but has anyone yet honestly defined it? What is justice? And what does an evil someone like Farrakhan know about it?
The entitlement community needs to watch a few ESPN outdoor shows and see Whitey pick off a mule deer with a .300 Winchester Mag cross-canyon shot at four hundred yards like he does it every day of the week.
My word for Screwy Louie is “Fallujah”.
Can’t figure out why someone hasn’t put a bullet in him yet (Farrakan) after all it is Chicago and the dead and walking wounded are increasing with every weekend shoot-up fest.
Wonder what the body count will be this weekend (3/23-3/25)
The fact that there is even a 50/50 chance of Obama being reelected proves that your statement, although factual when it comes to FR Posters, is wishful thinking at best.
I am not criticizing, just stating the reality of the situation we face in today's America. The POTUS goes out and makes incendiary racial comments about this case and there is ZERO outrage expressed outside of Conservative groups.
It appears the Country had a collective Frontal Lobotomy the moment Obama appeared on the scene. Since his Election, they have gone back for additional treatments, over and over again.
