Farrakhan Rails Against 'White Supremacy'
CNSNews.com ^ | August 18, 2002 | Michael L. Betsch

Posted on 08/18/2002 5:09:34 AM PDT by H8DEMS

Washington, D.C. (CNSNews.com) - Thousands of blacks rallied in Washington Saturday in support of reparations for past slavery, joining Nation of Islam Leader Minister Louis Farrakhan and shouting "They owe us!"

"We're not asking white people [for reparations]," said Farrakhan, who headlined the 'Millions for Reparations Mass Rally'. "We are demanding what is justly ours."

Farrakhan also urged enlisted military personnel to not fight for the U.S. should an armed strike against Iraq be initiated, and called for the ceding of land to black Americans.

The Nation of Islam minister told the predominantly black, pro-reparations crowd that "reparations is a proper theme around which all black America should and must unite."

Farrakhan believes the U.S. government should issue reparations to black Americans as compensation for past slavery in the United States, saying "our pocketbooks" need repair.

By his account, blacks need "payment for the destruction of our minds; the robbery of our language, our culture, our history, our religion, our God, our self-dignity, and our self-worth."

However, Farrakhan said, "We cannot accept a cash payment because a fool and his money will soon part." Instead, he advocated the transfer of "millions" of acres of land from the U.S. government to African Americans.

Farrakhan explained that blacks live in an America that is a "nation within a nation." The America that blacks inhabit, he said, does not enjoy "true freedom, justice and equality" from white America.

"As a nation within a nation, we need land as a basis of economic and political independence," Farrakhan said. "We cannot settle for some little jive token - we need millions of acres of land that black people can build and use for ourselves."

Farrakhan said his "just demand" for building a black nation on American soil would reward blacks for their service in the United States military.

He concluded his brief 15-minute speech urging blacks, Hispanics and "poor whites" enlisted in the military not to support or fight in any military attack that President Bush may unleash upon Iraq.

"I don't think we need to fight in the white man's army," Farrakhan said. "Our fight is in America against the recalcitrance of white supremacy, and we shall win this fight because it's a just struggle."

Socialist Agrees With Farrakhan on Reparations

"There should be restitution for the crimes of slavery," said John Coursey, a representative of Solidarity, a group that describes itself as a "revolutionary, socialist, democratic, feminist, anti-racist organization." He claimed that much of the inequalities that exist in American society today can be traced back to slavery.

Coursey acknowledges that slavery was outlawed in the U.S. more than a century ago, but laws and segregation continued to oppress blacks well into the 1970s and still do so today.

He believes corporations operating in America today should also pay reparations to blacks for the hardships of their ancestors decades and centuries ago.

"Specifically, I think the money should come from corporations that have built their power today from exploiting and oppressing black people," Coursey said. "Look at the people that have wealth who have actually exploited slavery and benefited from it."

Coursey said a reparations payout to blacks would act to balance America's "widely unequal" distribution of wealth.

Green Party Rep Compares Slavery to Holocaust

"If Germany could apologize for its crimes against gypsies and the Jews, why can't this country begin to do some apology and soul searching about what it's done to the American Indians and black people," asked David Barrows, a protestor representing the D.C. Statehood Green Party.

Slavery reparations are an official policy of the Green Party nationwide and the D.C. Statehood Green Party, Barrows said.

Barrows believes that compensating blacks is a great opportunity for the U.S. government to make a "clean break" from its oppressive past. "Reparations is a good start," he said.

"The country has to say, 'We committed crimes against humanity against a major part of our people, and we do not want to be a part of this exploitation,'" Barrows said.

Seems they'd be grateful. Look how those we didn't "rob" in Africa are faring.

"There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living our of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs -- partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs."

Okay. If you go about blaming all of your perceived problems on your race, you are doing nothing but using a crutch to sail through life. I could bullshit all day about how I'm 1/8 indian and my ancestor's land was taken away, blah dee blah, but what the hell does that prove and why would I let something that didn't happen to me and has no direct affect on my life have any bearing on my self-worth?

Blast from the past:

Q: Will you support reparations for African-Americans?

HILLARY CLINTON: We have mental, emotional and psychological reparations to pay first. We have to admit that we haven’t always treated people in our own country fairly. We have some issues that we have to address when it comes to racial justice right now. I’m willing to work hard to be a strong advocate for Civil Rights and human rights here at home and around the world. I want to do everything I can to make sure that the programs and policies that have helped generations of African-Americans have a better life in this country continue. I think we should be focused on the present and on the future. We owe an apology to African-Americans for hundreds of years of slavery.

Yeah, according to the ajc.com, Farrakhan was at one church last night (and embraced by Jihad Cindy's papa), and will be at two churches today: The Farrakhan-McKinney stuff is at the end of the story:

ELECTION 2002 PRIMARY
Coalition rallies to help
'lift every voice and vote'

 

By MAE GENTRY
Atlanta Journal-Constitution Staff Writer

Billy McKinney, father of Rep. Cynthia McKinney, greets Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan as Farrakhan prepares to stump for the controversial congresswoman at the West Hunter Street Baptist Church on Saturday.

With three days left until the primary, candidates for public office braved Saturday's heat to meet voters at a get-out-the-vote rally in south DeKalb County.

 

The rally, held at Gresham Park's athletic field, was sponsored by the Georgia Coalition for the Peoples' Agenda, a nonpartisan organization headed by the Rev. Joseph Lowery. It was one of many political events held throughout metro Atlanta on the last weekend before election day, including an appearance Saturday night by Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan on behalf of U.S. Rep. Cynthia McKinney.

At Gresham Park, volunteer J.R. Lentini hammered "Darden for Congress" campaign signs into the soft wood-chip-covered dirt, even though south DeKalb is not part of the 11th District candidate Buddy Darden seeks to represent.

"We're not campaigning for votes here," Lentini said. "We're campaigning for the democratic process."

Niesha Worthy, 19, registered to vote for the first time at Saturday's event. "I've never done it before, and I've always wanted to participate in something like that," she said.

Seated under a green-and-white tent, Lowery bobbed his head to the beat of a rap song he recorded two years ago, "You Got the Right to Vote." The 80-year-old civil rights veteran talked about his organization's civic efforts.

"Our goal is to improve the quality of governance by promoting an informed and active electorate and responsive elected officials," he said.

Volunteers grilled hot dogs and hamburgers, demonstrated a touch-screen electronic voting machine, the method Georgians will use in November, and offered to register those who turned out.

Candidates distributed campaign literature and spoke to the sparse crowd.

Johnny Panos, who left a Scottdale parade to come to Gresham Park, said he had attended many forums during his campaign for DeKalb State Court judge. "One of the things that's been disappointing to me is . . . there haven't been a lot of voters," Panos said.

Saturday's "Lift Every Voice and Vote" rally was no exception. People came and went, but no more than a few dozen were present at any time.

Phyllis E. Turner, a candidate for state school superintendent, shook hands with people in the crowd as she touted her credentials. She said she thought the rally was worthwhile.

"I wanted to connect with the community," she said. "And I knew this was a good way to do it."

Saturday night Farrakhan spoke to the overflowing congregation at the West Hunter Street Baptist Church in the first of three voter rallies he is scheduled to attend this weekend. There will be two today.

Farrakhan has been a supporter of 4th District congresswoman McKinney, and he told an enthusiastic and cheering crowd that McKinney needed their support because she was "a sister who has been there for us."

McKinney is facing her toughest challenge from former DeKalb County State Court judge Denise Majette in the Democratic primary Tuesday, and Majette has received significant financial support from the Jewish community.

Farrakhan said McKinney had been targeted for defeat because she cast votes in Congress against Israel and spoke out in behalf of Palestinians.

"I am looking at a drama being played out," Farrakhan said at the rally. "Cynthia didn't vote right. Cynthia is brass. Cynthia has that gall."

Farrakhan said he was there because he favored McKinney, not because he opposed Majette.

"I guess Ms. Majette is a qualified woman. She has a lot to offer and there's nothing wrong with aspiring to be more than you are," he said. "Judge Majette -- I couldn't come up here and say anything bad about her."

So, Farrakhan proclaims that blacks are too dumb to manage their money. That's not they way to win black friends and influence black people, Louie.

As to the millions of acres for blacks, well, if we add the millions of acres for Mexicans, between the two do you suppose that they will allow the white folks to keep Maine?

Farrakhan is a seditionist traitor. He is our Yassar Arafat. Farrakhan would like to run all of the whites into the sea and take their land. When is the media going to stop portraying him as a civil rights activist and present him as the power-hungry hate monger that he is?

As far as I know, this is the only campaigning Farrakhan as done--Earl Hilliard, who also had Farrakhan's support, brought in Al Sharpton. Hilliard lost to Artur Davis in Alabama's 7th district, the Birmingham area, I do believe.

And Farrakhan's making not one, but three campaign stops for Jihad Cindy.

Did you notice the backhanded slam against Majette? Almost flattery :-)) But if Majette wins, Louie wants access to her office, and you can count on that.

You want what's mine? Then be a man about it, and come try and take it from me. I'll put my 30.06 against Farrakhan and all his bow-tied buffoons any day.

Farrakhan also urged enlisted military personnel to not fight for the U.S. should an armed strike against Iraq be initiated, and called for the ceding of land to black Americans.

There's a word for this: Treason.

Farrakhan said his "just demand" for building a black nation on American soil would reward blacks for their service in the United States military.

What about all the other races who served?

Don't forget that those black elites that beating the drums for reparations downplay any direct payments to individuals saying the money should go to various foundations and organizations who will spend the money in the best interest of the black people. In fact, a few have actually said that any money going to individuals will just be blown. I do imagine that if reparations is passed some direct token payments will be made, a few hundred dollars at most.

Not a lot of difference between, say, 900 and 2000. From what I heard they had almost as many unused Port-a-Johns as they did attendees.

They obviously were planning and hoping for 10's of thousands. To me it speaks volumes that not even Mad Maxine or Fat Al showed up. I also noted on the C-SPAN site that the head of BET, whats-his-name, was scheduled to be there. May have missed it, but I believe he was a no show also.

"Farrakhan Rails Against 'White Supremacy'"

Farrakhan is a terrorist enabler and always ranting about whites. This isn't news. Now, if Farrakhan announced he's converting to Christianity, will renounce all of his worldly goods and dedicate the rest of his life to reversing some of the damage he's caused over the years, THAT would be news.

I wish they'd stop kicking him off the mother ship and sending him back to us.

Blacks have reasons to complain the same as Whites and American Indians. But they have no basis to make demands. Are they going to sue all the way back to the Blacks who captured them and sold them to the slave traders? And then are they going to sue the traders too?

All the Blacks have to do is read the Bible , many , many people have been slaves , included in those numbers are my Irish ancestors , along with many other people captured as "criminals" by the English so they could settle foreign lands for their aristocrats.

Why don't these Blacks quit their whinning and start building up something good. Why don't they make better living in intercity housing for their brothers , instead of asking them to help fund their organizations that just want to tear down society?

Get real , all they are doing is building hate between the Blacks and the Whites. I probably watched about an hour of their march , some of them made no sense at all. Even my 15 year old daughter said what some of them were saying was stupid.

I want Human Rights for all of us. And the elites are our enemies , they will work to enslave us in their world rule utopia regardless of how many of us die. And the longer we fight amongst ourselves the closer they will get to their goal.

I could look forward to the day that all of us Americans' work together for Peace and Equality. But it appears I have to get ready for the day that the Blacks decide it's time to get even with Whitey as exhibited in the LA riots and Florida riots.

I know there are many Blacks out there who aren't part of this , but when the time comes the hate involved won't be selective. Many innocent Blacks and Whites and others will suffer because of this hate. And I'm talking about all sides , the hate will be infectious and an excuse for everyone to act in frustration.

People , Love is infectious too. We can just as easily work together to build up the nation , America is supposed to be. More than ever Americans need to come together to protect Human Rights , as our corrupt government shreds our Constitution , moving towards accepting the UN's / elites constitution that will enslave us all forever.

The God I know wants all of His people together. So I don't know what god they were talking about at the march , that wants to make Whitey pay....

Jesus is the answer to our problems , many of which have been bred by the elites for their gain.

Let's fight to build a better Nation and end the corruption and greed in our government. And not fall for the obvious trap that has been set for us , which will tear down our society and increase the elites grip on our throats.

Let's work together to gain Peace and Equality instead of accepting the elites chains , because we can't live together in Peace.

That's their lie...

One Nation under God , indivisible , with liberty and justice for ALL , should be what "We" demand. It's what God says we deserve.

But first "We" have to put God back above the elites we have become servile to.

Fight , but fight the good fight , let's work together to build a great Nation , under God.

Saturday night Farrakhan spoke to the overflowing congregation at the West Hunter Street Baptist Church

A couple of obvious questions ... Why was a Christian Congregation turned over to a Black Muslim sermonist? ... Why was a Black Muslim paying any heed at all to the "infidels?"

WHY on EARTH would a Baptist Church let a rabid Muslim extremist spout his hate speech to a bunch of black Christians...as if Farrakhan has ANY of THEIR inerests at heart? I mean, if the black Christian community would just IGNORE this man, who wants an independent Muslim state here in the US, rather than giving him a platform upon which to insanely rant, he wouldn't go away...but close enough.

This guy is a Muslim extremist. He encourages extremist Arab Muslims to commit terrorist acts against us. The fact that he's black is a secondary coincidence of fate and has nothing to do with it. He represents the interests of HIMSELF first, using the medium of promoting hate and MUSLIM EXTREMISM second. He does NOT represent the interests of black Americans in any way shape or form.

WHY on EARTH would a Baptist Church let a rabid Muslim extremist spout his hate speech to a bunch of black Christians...as if Farrakhan has ANY of THEIR inerests at heart? I mean, if the black Christian community would just IGNORE this man, who wants an independent Muslim state here in the US, rather than giving him a platform upon which to insanely rant, he wouldn't go away...but close enough.

When I read that Farrakhan would be preaching at churches rather than mosques, I said, "huh?" But I bet having Cindy's papa twisting arms had a lot to do with it.

Farrakhan goes into his Jesus/Bible riff quite often. This is just one example:

Black lawmakers must be free

The Minister also expressed support for embattled Georgia Democrat Cynthia McKinney, who faces a stiff challenge in an upcoming August primary.

"I want to say to all of you that you might think that just because you’re an individual that you don’t have weight," he said. "But God has never sent a team to do His work. He sends one man and anoints that man and backs that man with His power.

"And that’s why we love Jesus," Min. Farrakhan continued. "He was one man but he had disciples. Moses was one man but he had Aaron and he had disciples. If you feel that you are right and you are with God and God is with you, never, never compromise what is right for any position that makes you comfortable. Your real comfort has never been in comfort; your real comfort lies in the fact that you know that you are in the bosom of a mighty God and shadowed under his wings. With that kind of faith, we went forward" on the mission, he reported.

Hers a quote from yesterdays program on CSPAN covering the reparations rally.

"We are here today to pin the tail on the HONKEY" "Black Power! Black Power!"

Does anyone have any doubts that this is not about reparations, but about instigating a nation wide race war?

Many want both. It's a growing psychosis in parts of the black community.

Gee. Swell. Farrakhan advocating treason, sedition, theft, and outright secession.

........and he gets away with it during a time of war.

Let me hear again about how's there "no justice for the black man in America", anyone?

"..urged enlisted military personnel to not fight for the U.S."

"Instead, he advocated the transfer of "millions" of acres of land from the U.S. government to African Americans."

1.I recommend this idiot pick up a weapon and stand a post, actually, enemy of the domestic type.
2. Give him and his followers the most austere portion of Nevada...then declare war on it.
3. Move your ass to someplace better in Africa.
