tv Politics and Public Policy Today CSPAN October 12, 2015 11:00am-1:01pm EDT
unintentional. it is by design. things are going to radically change and they are going to change now. it is our duty to fight for freedom. >> it is our duty to fight for freedom. >> it is our duty to win. >> it is our duty to win. >> brothers and sisters, i am truly humbled to stand before you today. i wish all of you could be up here to witness this sea of beautiful faces representing people from all walks of lives and nations, all hear for one mission and one purpose, to demand justice for our people. ten years ago, my mentor, harry belafonte, was watching the news when he saw a video of a
5-year-old black girl in florida handcuffed a handcuffed and sent to jail for throwing a tantrum. five years old. imagine that being your child. this is happening in communities all over our country. as mr. "b" has told us, the river of blood that flows through the streets of our nation flows most from the bodies of our black men and children. as we stand here today, we can commit to stopping that river. two years ago, i coco-founded justice league, nyc. i called on my black brothers and sister. i called on my latino allies. i called on my muslim sisters and brothers to the table. we built a multi-racial movement that will not rest until justice is served. we are the ones we have been waiting for. i come here today as a
mexican-american woman, proud chicana to raise our voice loud and clear. 50 years since selma, 20 years since million man march and we are still fighting. twenty years from now, we will stand here again, we will stand in victory celebrating with our heads up high and our fifty up in the air saying and celebrating our liberation. if we don't get it, we must shut it down. if we don't get it, if we don't get it, justice. thank you. can y'all hear me? y'all, i come from a place that's forgotten about.
it's nothing but an afterthought. i come from a place where people struggle every day. we talk about justice. we are looking for economic justice, social justice, environmental justice, international justice. i'm a young black boy, lost voices, t-dub. all these young people standing in the street in ferguson for a long time. it is a year later. ain't nobody come to save us. i'm not waiting for nothing to fall out the sky. i'm not waiting for your national hashtag to come save me. i'm going to do the same thing anthony did here. i'm going to do the same thing they persevered in here. if you don't know the names, get some local names. those local names for a nationalnation impact. when i tell you we are talking about justice, ferguson is the or else.
>> he want you, if you will, we have another 1 million people 20 years later. would you clap for those watching all the way from the back. give some major commendation for them. then, there is a group we forgot about who we really have to cheer for. would you shout until you need to pack the halls? i want you to yell for those watching online and watching on c-span. open up your mouth and clap for them. everybody, go on periscope, twitter, facebook for the nine people left on myspace, please go on right now and tell everybody we are getting ready to hear our matching orders for where we go from here. before we do that, i want to ask you, if you will. we like to give people the credit but we don't want to give
them the cash. today, we have to do something to make a monumental movement that lives beyond this day. in every section, there is a tent. we want every person to get a gift as we commemorate these 20 years. get your best seed as close to $20. get your best gift. if you have got $100, we don't have change. get your best gift, as close to $20 as you possibly can. those of you that are watching online, go to justice or else.com. we want you to give online. those of you who are writing checks, write a check that's going to clear on monday. if you're not sure, wait another 20 years. if you're sure, write a check to justice or else so that we can move forward. >> a bright writer said, there is no success without a successor.
it is my privilege to introduce to you the second in command who is, in fact, an emerging leader who is a comfort to our great speaker. would you please help me warmly welcome minister ishmael mohammed. give god some praise for him. >> justice! justice! we are gathered today sober and of a serious mind in unity to exercise our god-given right that is justice, recognized in the first amendment that says that the congress shall make no law prohibiting the people's rights to a peaceful assembly and to petition the government
for privacy. we are here today because the black man of american and the native american and the indigenous people and the poor of this nation must have skrus it is justice. before god punishes a nation, he always intervenes in the affairs of that government, of that nation, and of that people. he raises in the oppressed, the despised, the poor of that nation a messenger or a prophet. twenty years ago, god made the right call at the right time through the honorable minister lewis farrakhan for a million man march. no man could have called a
million men and a million men answered that call except god was in the call that we all heard. not only did 1 million men answer the call, it was exceeded by 700,000 men. now, look from the capital all the way down to seventh street. the press has asked, how many do you expect. i said, success does not depend on numbers but god called 1 million men 20 years ago. you can see by the crowd that is gathered here today, there is one man in america that can make a call and all of us answered that call. it is the honorable minister lewis farrakhan.
he is, he is the representative of christ and he is the representative of god to a wicked nation. for you were here today not just as some civil rights teacher. you didn't come here to hear a politician. you came here today because this is god's man. this is god's man, demanding justice. justice from america. if america refuses to hear god's call through the honorable minister lewis farrakhan, there will be more hurricane joaquins, there will be more tornadoes and earthquakes. it is time for america to know that god is present to the whole world that is watching.
to all that are gathered here today. let us receive the only man that can tell us what justice is and what justice looks like. please help me to welcome the honorable minister lewis farrakhan. the honorable minister who has stood for us, who champions the cause of freedom, justice and equality. he is unafraid to speak the truth that god has put in his mouth to speak. it will take a fearless people, a people afraid of the enemy when we demand justice.
in the name of the merciful, we give him praise and thanks for all of his prophets and the scriptures which they brought. we thank him for moses and the israelite prophets that gave us the torah or the old testament. we thank him for jesus who gave us the gospel and the apostles that gave us wa is called the new testament. we thank him for mohammed abdullah, through whom the last revelation to humanity before the judgment of this present world. that book is called the holy koran. i am a student of the most honorable elijah mohammed.
i could never thank ala enough for his merciful intervention in our affairs in the person of master far mohammed, the great, who is in the world in the united states of america. i greet all of you, my dear and wonderful brothers and sisters request the greeting words of peace. we say it in the arabic language [ speaking in arabic ] first, i want to say to all of you, i am honored beyond words
i want to say how happy i am to be a part of such a great showing of unity of the aboriginal people of our planet. i want our native american family and brother night wolf, my brother, i'm sorry that they cut you a little short but i want you to know how favored you are as a native american giant standing for his people. the native people who came in their native dress, this is not like going to a football game with the redskins.
they are not here as some mascot. they are here because they are the original owners of this part of the earth and we honor them with the honor that they are justly do. they are suffering in their land is very great. so all of those that call for justice, no cry is greater than those who have suffered the most. and those who have suffered the most are the indigenous people, not only of america but of the
western hemisphere and those of us who are brought into america not as pilgrims, not as puritans, not seeking another way of worship but in the hulls of ships to be made the burdenbearers of the real citizens of america. it's hypocritical for us to say that we are citizens and we are still trying get civil rights while at the same time we are denied the human right of self-determination. i'm honored to be here in front
of this great, great house that was built by black slaves. so i don't think i'm encroaching on any american by standing on the ground that was paid for with the sweat and the blood of our ancestors. i'm honored to be here and grateful to congressman danny da davis for having shepherded through both houses a joint resolution that allows us to be
on the capital steps. i was so touched by our natives brothers and sisters and hispanic brothers and sisters. and some who are black, may say farrakhan, why are you talking to all of these different ethnicities? we have to accept our position. i loved my sister and those standing with her who championed
the call that black lives matter. i felt so happy to see her and to hear her and for her to know that she and black lives matter are welcome, have a cherished spot because they represent the future leadership. these are not just young people who happen to wake up one morning. ferguson ignited it all. so all the brothers and sisters in ferguson, all the brothers and sisters that laid in the
streets, all those that challenge the tanks, we are honored that you have come to represent our struggle and our demand. again, i'm grateful for the choir that sung and the brothers and sisters that sang for brother rassoul mohammed and his wonderful song that he wrote about the great liber a tore at emeliano sapada. every member of the clergy that
prayed this morning, the native people that have their native places, their teepees and whatnot on the grounds, they are sacred people and they deserve justice. we will not only get justice for ourselves but justice for all those who are deprived of that precious, essential of life itself. on this beautiful mall, which was a slave center hundreds of years ago, right here.
down this mall, it used to be slave pens and in that movie, "12 years a slave," the black brother was brought here, down on my left side, your right side, in a little yellow house. where he was severely beaten before he was sent off to be a slave unjustly for 12 years. i feel the cry of our ancestors, the pain of those on whose shoulders we stand.
i feel that the an scestors are happy that a young generation has arisen. i saw the faces of the young inline trying to come in. they made it, i guess, safe but they made it difficult. the young stood in their place until they could get in, because that's who we work for. we who are getting older, i'm speaking of myself and my generation, what good are we if we don't prepare young people to carry the torch of liberation to the next step.
what good are we if we think we can last forever and not prepare others to walk in our footsteps. so to the young that are here, we honor you. we know who you are. we will not forsake our duty to you. there are some elders that are not worthy to pass on the legacy of their cowardice to our young people. our young people will not listen to those made in america, made by america and want to bow down in america to that which has
given them hell. these young people are looking for fearless leadership but leadership that cannot be bought. leadership that is willing to sacrifice its life to see a better future for our children. i'm honored that my brother and friend, father flager is here, who is a great fighter in chicago. i am honored that cora master berry is here and i thank allah for her and her dear departed husband who really showed us the way. i thank allah for all of you who
want to sacrifice in some way, to make a difference? there can be no freedom, no justice, no equity without the willingness for some to sacrifice for the rest. what good is life if we are not free. what good is it to be alive and every day that you live, you see your people suffering. what good is it to continue in life under tyranny? so there must come a time when we say enough is enough.
it must change. i am willing to do whatever it takes to bring about that change. i thank allah for brother makina from haiti and brother vladimir from the dominican republic, two great brothers that islam has brought together but the makin nations of white supremacy is trying to keep apart. haiti and the dominican republic used to be called hispaniola. it is the first place that the wicked won, columbus, set his feet. tomorrow, they say it is his
pir birthday. i think it is tomorrow or the day after, monday. but no indigenous people want to celebrate. a man who came and dislodged them. a man who came seeking a new group to india and ended up in america and when they saw the original people that they saw, well, they must be indians. because we white folk don't make mistakes like that. but they are not just indians, nor are we african-americans. we were hear before a continent named africa was named. we were certainly hear before
america vespucious and this part of the world was named after him. we don't want to disparage ourselves by naming ourselves after johnny come lately. we are the aboriginal people of our planet. before there was a planet, we were here with god. in the beginning. black woman, you are not the second self of man alone, you are the second self of god. as the second self of god, any man that would disrespect a female is an enemy of god, because she is the greatest gift from god to a man.
out of your tongue before your tongue is pulled out of your head. every woman is from the creator. her womb is the workshop of god. so when a man sees a woman, he should bow in honor to her. the native americans can teach us much in the respect of women. i have been up on the reservations. i've been in the enepe. i have been to some of their ceremonies.
the native people, the men draw blood. hanging from trees and carrying skulls of animals in dirt attached to the flesh of their back in tremendous pain until the flesh snaps and blood pours out. the native people do that to pay honor to the woman, for she is in labor enduring the pain of death to bring forth new life. there is always a show of blood before the birth so the man is trying to equal himself up to
the woman. that means that the native man who disrespects your female. you have lost your way. any black man under the sound of our voice. any red man, any yellow man that will traffic in women and girls, you are worthy of death itself. through the womb of a woman, every great one was born and every no good one was born.
world, and that brand new world will come out of the womb of women as strong protectors. it is your body. you can do with it as you please. but it would be so tragic if if the next sitting bull was aborted. it would be tragic if the next malcolm "x" or martin luther king or moses or abraham or jesus was flushed away. you don't know who your child is going to be. if you are wise, your child could be the answer to your
prayers. why do you pray, brothers and sisters? you pray that things would be made better. you whose fathers and motherses and cousins and aunts have died from cancer, don't you want to see a cure for such a disease? that cure is not coming out of the sky. that cure is coming from the womb of a female that may think she is not important. but out of that womb my mother
did not wish to carry me to term. in those days, they didn't have abortion clinics, women who wanted to abort the new life used hangers, metal hangers. my mother tried three times to abort my life because the circumstances under which she was pregnant were uncomfortable for her. she didn't want to face what my being a child, light skinned
when the man she was with was dark skinned and so was she and she wouldn't be able to tell him that i was his. so after the third time trying to abort my life, she said, let it be. and she prayed and prayed for god to come into her life and give her peace and strengthen her for what she thought she would have to face. she didn't know that those circumstances and her prayers went into what was in her womb.
she didn't know that her insecurity because of a circumstance made her feel secure in the prayers she was sending up to god. so she gave birth to a child who knew god from an early age. she gave birth to a child that never in my life did i find refuge in any man. my refuge and my protection was always grounded in my faith in a
superior being. so many people wonder, why is farrakhan so bold? it's because i'm free from fear. >> how could farrakhan tell the fbi and the cia and the irs to go to hell when others tremble at their name? they don't have a name big enough to make a man who has been shown the arm of god to be afraid of a man who can never do to me nothing more than what god have him to do and if he permits it i'm for it even if it is my death.
my problem is too much fear among us. among us. and fear is what takes a man and makes him a punk. women are showing more strength as sister ava said earlier. she's the natural protector of what her womb produces. and sisters, you should never love any man more than the love you have for what your womb produce if that man becomes a violator of your child.
knowing god, not talking god but knowing god is what takes fear from your heart. a fearful people can't be free. a fearful people will bound down when it appear that is the enemy is so strong. and we are so weak. as i was preparing this morning to come, i was thinking about us who are preachers. who can quote the psalms. the lord is my strength and he is my salvation. of whom then shall i fear?
or whom then shall i be made afraid? but then when the enemy comes and challenges his words, we find them weakening, running away, leading the sheep to be eaten by the wolves. that's why jesus said i am the good shepherd. the good shepherd will lay down his life for the sheep. any man in leadership that is not willing to give his life for the flock that supports him and feeds him and clothes him is not
worth it, of being a leader. many in leadership today are willing to take a little money. it grieves me. to see how many of us will sell out the future of our people for a little money that allows us to get an upgrade in our automobile. or an upgrade in our suit. or shoes. and i asked myself the question, when will corruptible put on
incorruptible? because all corruption is an enemy of the progress of man. all corruption. all deviation from honesty and integrity. you say, well, farrakhan, my god, what are you saying? i'm saying that if you love god with all your heart, soul, mind and strength, and love your brother as yourself, nobody could give you enough money to make you betray yourself as well as your brother or sister. when i first started rebuilding the nation of islam, in chicago
the man came to me and said, farrakhan, everybody got a price. i wondered who he had met, that everybody he knew had a price. as if this man don't have a friend. nowhe nowhere, because our friend will never betray his friend. how many in this audience have been called by the government authorities and told to lie. because they wanted a certain person. and if you lied, they would make
it easier for you in your sentence. how many of us have sold out to get a lighter sentence and made your brother, whom was innocent, a victim of the justice system that is unjust by telling lies? i'm talking to you like this. i have some notes that i put down but i haven't opened it. because this is not a date. 10/10/15. hell no. if this is a day and we come out and go back to doing what we were doing before we got here,
then this is all vanity. this is vanity. but vanity is the work of someone who is wrapped up in himself. we have no time for vain expression. those who are honest are those who live for others. and in their death, they are never dead. there is always someone coming up to refer to their greatness because they lived for others and their living was not in vain. why am i saying that at this point?
we are facing another election. the republicans have i don't know how many, is it 17? and they are really, like the pretty girl who is well formed, showing her wears, so that some man with money will buy her. who wants to be a whore? no, no, no, listen to me. do you think people with money put their money behind you if they don't expect something from you? that's what makes this a farce.
3.3 billion dollars in the last few years has been paid by lobbyists to this house. well, what are they lobbying for? laws they may not be in the best interest of the people. how then can you look in the mirror at yourself when you are bought and paid for, a whore. and then what do you get for being a whore? john fitzgerald kennedy lies across the water in a beautiful grave with an eternal flame.
and john fitzgerald kennedy had a beautiful home. he had boats, he had so much material wealth. but the end is the same. a spot in a little coffin and 6 feet of dirt. so to buy us, is it right? naked came i into the world and naked go i out. so what are you lying and cheating and stealing for to give something to your children, who if you lied and cheated and stole to get what you've got, you couldn't teach them value? so all that you left is
squandered by ignorant children. don't you think it would be better to be like dr. king? i'm very serious now. he didn't have a lot of money. he could have if he were a sellout. malcolm didn't have a lot of money. he could have. great ones don't amass wealth to leave to children. great ones amass wealth to leave to institutions that live after they are dead and gone. the grave is waiting for every one of us that are gathered here today. but why are you saying this, farrakhan? because this is not a moment as
my sister said. this is a movement. i'm going to say it again. this is not a moment. this is a movement. when the brothers and sisters arose in ferguson, you didn't have any money. you had a principle. a principle that you were willing to suffer for, that you felt was bigger than yourself and your life and the withstanding of pain. but all of a sudden the energy comes with money. if we give you this, will you come out of the street? and some of us, we are all poor, but some of us see that as an
opportunity. so the movement begins to die, those who take money as a bribe to stop hurting a force that you're coming against. the demand for justice demands integrity. the demand for justice demands selflessness. the demand for justice is bigger than all our lives. so the demand for justice must give us the will to wish to sacrifice our life because the many are greater than the one.
and so we are here today, i have some hard truths to say. and i want you to bear with me, because i want to show you why there's no government on this earth, not one, that can give the people what the people desire of freedom, of justice and equity. look around you, brothers and sisters. look at the trees. look at the flowers. look at the bushes. all of it starts with a seed. a simple seed.
seeds come in different colors, different colors, shapes and sizes. but a seed hides what god has put within it. until and unless the seed is placed in the proper environm t environment, so all these lovely living things that are around s us, all of them start from a seed. and that seed is planted in the earth. it is nurtured by water. and that management sgnificent . and then the seed swells and
bursts, sending a root down. and then a chute comes up. and what was within manifests itself and it is then a glory of god, it's creator. you all started, we all started from a sperm. a seed. god is not wasteful. a hundred million sperms may be released at one time. some even say a billion. but only one can fertilize that egg. well, god, if you're not
wasteful, what happens to the other sperm? what do we do with it? that sperm becomes food for the new life. we have a farm and every time we're sewing seeds to raise a crop of beans or corn or whatever vegetation we desire, the birds sense seeds are being sewn. so you see, the birds collect over the land. if the seed doesn't go deep enough, the bird flies down and the seed becomes food.
god wastes nothing. but you are a seed. i am a seed. we have not yet been placed in the proper spiritual or physical environment that would cause the seed to swell and burst and let what is within come out that we could say, i am a part of the glory of god. so elijah mohommad wanted the muslim program to be brought before this house. i don't know anybody in the house that i can trust to bring his program, so i came to bring it myself, as his student.
now i want you to think what i'm about to say. this program has been appearing on the back page of mohommad speaks and the final call since 1961. the muslim program. you say, well, i don't want to hear that. i ain't no muslim. okay. what are you? what are you? if i ask you to tell me your nationality, you will point to some spot on the earth that you think defines who you are. it's limited. i'm from georgia, good for you. i'm from mississippi, i'm from alabama, but i'm from new york.
right, right. but that does not define who you are. and i'm from jamaica, man. i'm from the caribbean. or i'm from africa. i'm from ghana, guinea, mali. that don't define you. you are defined by the nature in which you are created. and if your nature is the same as the nature of god, no land mass can define you. so the koran says, set your face for religion. being upright, the nature may buy a lot, in which he has created man. and there is no altering our
god's creation. a dog is a dog. not because you call him a spitz or aer the your. terrier. or a great dane. those are different species of dogs. but the dog is defined by the nature of its creation. i don't care whether it's a spitz or terrier or, what do you call it, a shepherd or pitbull. if it's a male, whenever it sees a hydrant, it will lift its leg. didn't nobody teach it how to do that, that's what dogs do. if you understand your nature, then you will understand the unlimited possibilities of the
human being. god created no human being without depositing in that human being a gift that can be expressed to an excellent degree. that's the nature of god. that's not an unexcellent tree. it's xlenlt. excellent. it's not an unexcellent bird, it's a bird. it's a worm. it's a flea. it's the sun. it's the moon. it's the earth. it's stars. it's the excellent creation from the excellent ecreator. and you are an excellent creation from an excellent creator. but you have to know yourself
and your relationship to god in order to extract what is within and bring it out to the glory of god. now, a lot of black people -- that work in this house, listen carefully to what i'm about to say. a lot of black people who have mastered their particular sport or their particular discipline, and they feel excellent. you know, they walk with a certain heaviness in them. certain pride. and when they come in the room, they -- some of them just suck up their atmosphere. oh, look, there's so-and-so. as though so-and-so is graded in you, so-and-so.
they're only great in your eyes because you have not focused your eyes on the greatness of yourself. so, look, brothers and sisters, the greatness of god is part of the thing that makes us so dissatisfied with government. you're yearning for something that the government can't give you. you are born to be free. the muslim program says we want freedom.
we want a full and complete freedom. that's not what muslims want, that's what every human being wants. but how will you define a full freedom and a complete freedom? if i'm a seed and i'm 50 years old and i'm still a seed, have never been planted in the right environment to develop myself, then i don't have freedom. but when i'm free and fully developed, then i have attained a full and complete freedom.
can this house give you that? come on. well, you don't have it. so what are we petitioning this for? it can't give you what's not in their nature to give you. we are just making a demand because we know it is right to do it, but we know it can't do that. but wait a minute, farrakhan, why can't it? let me show you why. the other day for the first time i said, let me go out and visit all the monuments that are on this mall where we as a people will be standing. and i quietly, as quiet as i
could, slipped into the jefferson memorial. and i stood there looking at a 19-foot statue of a great american. now, this mall is hallowed ground for us, but it's also sacred ground for those who love america. and thomas jefferson was one of the most brilliant of the founding fathers of this country. if you read his words, i'm going to read a few. just to let you see that he was not a christian. he never said he was.
but he certainly was what they call a diest. he believed in one god. now, look at this. he said, on the wall -- he was talking about justice. and he was talking about slavery. i want to give you a little study assignment. there was some things when he wrote the declaration of independence that they took out. because he was dealing with king
george as a vile man because he trafficked in black bodies. bringing them to america. i want you to go read his words. because thomas jefferson knew that if the slaves were not set free, one day, what king george did by bringing us interslavery would cause the slave to rise and fight against those who were holding us in slavery. we have really come to that point now. did you hear me? see, this thing has reached the point of explosion. black people that are here, even those in high places, are saying
we can't take this much longer. there's -- like a volcanic eruption that's coming now. you know, they say volcanos are birthed out of magnum. that is molten rock. with gases. and this molten rock and the gases at the bottom, then you have an upper crust that begins to come down and meet the molten rock beneath. i said, isn't that an interesting picture? because i hear you that are in
the middle class crying out, ain't too many middle class people here, but even if you were, you're crying. because the middle class is becoming the new poor. so that's the upper crust coming down to meet the mag ma below its bubbling now. and gases are coming up. and you see dust coming up from the sleeping volcano. and it's been asleep so long that you play around it like it don't have power to kill you. you play with the lives of poor peop people, indigenous people, black people, women, you play with the
lives of soldiers who are giving their lives on a foreign battlefield only to come home and be rejected and die while they are waiting for treatment and service. why are you saying this in front of the capitol, father farrakhan? i want to show the world hypocrite call america telling everybody that they are violating human rights. while in america there's all this dissatisfaction. i think, mr. president, we aught to be quiet. telling china, you have to straighten out your human
rights. violations, going down to cuba, yeah, well, we are going to have relations with you, but your human rights violences -- see, as though you don't have no problem in america. we are trying to show the world these are problems here! and these problems demand resolution. and america don't have the heart to do it! thomas jefferson gave some brilliant remarks about freedom. and trembling for america when he reflected that god is just and that his justice would not sleep forever.
and then thomas jefferson and others fashioned the seal of this nation. and at first the seal reflected the wrath of god. in a light from above. and pharoah's army below, the wrath of god he was saying in the seal would come down on america. if america would not free the slaves. he knew it should be done. so thomas jefferson said, we
need to let the slave go. we need to give them a good sendoff. we need to give them land. we need to give them machinery. we need to give them seeds to plant crops. we need to teach them the science of warfare, that they would be able to defend the land that they would be given. this is thomas jefferson. but he couldn't force it. there are good white people who want to see you free, but the politics of the situation will not allow it to happen. i don't care nothing about what the politicians are saying. we think you all should, you
know, have some freedom. and like the pope who came so beautifully a few weeks ago, and i listened to him and took a few days rest from the tour because i became sick with pneumonia. and i went away for ten days. and during that ten days, his holiness was here and i watched him every day until his plane left. i thought about this human being who has captured the world. and then i thought about him in ecuador and in bolivia. i think it was bolivia.
three countries in south america. and the pope asked them to forgive the church. did you hear that, brothers and sisters? now, he didn't say forgive jesus. because the church that was killing the indigenous people really wasn't connected to jesus. they were connected to a cross that was given to constantine in a vision. and in latin, under that cross it said, [ speaking latin ] with this sign we conquer. so the cross and christianity at that time was not the real
teaching of jesus christ. it was a philosophy, ideology based on white supremacy. will you forgive us and the pope asked -- i didn't hear the answer that the people of ecuador and paraguay, and i think it was bolivia -- we don't hear the answer. but in charleston after nine of our brothers and sisters were killed, before the dead were even buried, before the culprit
sure, he said love your enemies. he wasn't talking about loving satan. oh, wait, now, come on. show me in scriptures where jesus said, we all aught to love satan. the devil. see, the devil was wicked from the beginning. he didn't commit a sin and did a wrong that you might forgive. but look at you, black people. you are so evil. you won't forgive your mother. some of you don't even talk to your father. some of you don't talk to nobody that does you wrong. but you have come with the children of the enemy on your
that's like us taking the brand wizard of the ku klux klan and beat fying him and making him a saint. and what about all the people that you killed? what about all the evil that you have done? should we forgive? well, the holy koran says it like this. you may forgive, but i, god talking, will never forgive. see, now the god i'm about to talk to you about now is on scene today. thomas jefferson couldn't deliver. i went to the lincoln statue.
and while i was there, dr. king was speaking. i said, what is dr. king doing speaking in the lincoln memorial? so then i reflected on abraham lincoln's words. it is written there for the people to see. he said, and i hope i'm quoting it right, he said, if i could preserve the union and keep all in slavery, i would do it. did you hear me? and he said, i would do that.
his aim was the preservation of the union. not freeing you. and that's why you're still singing we shall overcome. you've been tricked. you've been had. you've been took. you've been bamboozled in the words of brother malcolm, we have been deceived. abraham lincoln, though, in his lincoln douglas debates, he said, you suffer, talking about black people, from being in
america with us. and we suffer from your presence. have you heard that before? well, go look it up! that's one thing you won't say about farrakhan. you say he's a hate teacher, he's there, but you won't call me a liar. look at this. he said, as long as the two of us live together, there will always be a superior and an
inferior. and i, as much as any white man want the superior position assigned to the white race, that's your aid. but he knew you was a problem. and he said, let me see if i can get rid of it. so he calls the negroes to the white house. see, when you call a negro not a black man, but you call a negro who is bending and scratching -- with his head bent low talking to the boss man, he said, will you negroes accept to be separated, i will give you land in africa.
we will back you up and give you what you need, you know. but you'll be on your own. but we'll help you. and the negros said, not us. we didn't lose nothing in africa. no. so he backed off because the negroes didn't want it. and he probably couldn't sell it to white folks who might have still wanted our presence as what we are. some people play with us. you are a wonderful prey in the hand of a mighty people. but you are just a prey. and that is not spelled p-r-a-y.
that's spelled p-r-e-y. now watch this. now we are 150 years up from me. but the worst thing about today is we have fulfilled our prophesied time to be in bondage. now, you black people that are here, you teachers, i want you to look this up. they say the first slaves landed in america in 1619. but if you really study in the first congressional library
right here in washington, the first slaves were brought on a ship named jesus of leubank under the captain sea of sir john hawkins. not in 1619 but in 1555. if you subtract 1555 from 1619, you get 64 years. when i was a little fella, they had a quiz show that was called the $64 question. then it's -- no, i know what i'm talking about, son. you were johnny come lately. i said it right. it first started as a $64
question. then it went to $64,000. that's when you came in. how are you going to talk to the old man? now, 64 years of hitting history is what turned you and me from an african black person into a negro having eyes but can't see, ears can't hear, tongue can't speak, spiritually blind, deaf and dumb.
and once that happened, our mothers gone, our fathers gone, you couldn't hear your father, your mother praying. and you can't hear your father, so you woke up with white folks' names on you. now, white people are very smart. they stamp you with themselves just so they can recognize you. you know, when you're stealing something in the mall, i don't know whether you do anything like that, but when you're stealing something in the mall and you get to a certain point, the buzzer rings. see, you can't get out of the store until what is in your
possession that caused the alarm to go off is checked. you see, white folks been knowing you have property. that's why they name you. so when you go for your passport, and what is your name? my name is larry wilson. you say louis green. hmm. yes, it's one of them. because you're named after your former slave master. you can't be free walking around in the name of your former owner. your first act of freedom is thank you but no thank you, take your name back. and look, take a name.
that is the name of your people. or an islamic name, which is since you are from god, why shouldn't you be named after god who is your creator? you say, well, oh, if i take a name like that and they say, you have to go to court. i say, you didn't have to go to court to name me. and i'm not going to court to give you back your name. see, you've got to stand up today. like a free man. don't let them tell you what you've got to do. show them your independence and your knowledge. i'm a free man. that's not my name, that's your name. take it back, i'm giving it to you.
did you hear my brother say the dominican republican was enslaved by the spaniards? see, my mexican family here, what is your name? my name is gonzalez. my name is ramirez. and i speak spanish. and you look at your haitian brother, he's francois sanshe? where did he get that name? he speaking french. [ speaking french ] ah. oh, he's different. he's french. no, he's a conquered black man with a white man's language and
a white man's name. and believe it or not with the white man's religion. now, let me tell you something about jesus and the white man's religion. see, if you really had the religion of jesus, we wouldn't even be here talking today. you would be free right now. if you really had the religion of jesus. but you and i were baptized into that which made us think he was caucasian. well, there's a few things i want to say before i close.
look -- they don't want me to stop. they are hungry. and that's why jesus said -- i'm saying this to pastors. that's why jesus said to those of us who are shepherds, lovest thou me, peter, feed my sheep. he wasn't telling you to feed them some government cheese. he's telling you to feed them the real gospel of jesus christ. that's why they don't want me to stop. because they are being fed.
now, look, i don't want to miss my point. we were pros ficied to be in america 400 years. let's deal with that. go home, get your bible. open to the 15th book of genesis. the 14th, 15th and 16th verses. it reads like this, no on shurdty, abraham, your seed is going to be a stranger in a land that is not theirs. and they shall serve them and they shall be afflicted 400
judgment. and i'm sorry, i don't like to hurt your feelings. white or black, proud or red or yellow, but america now has entered the time of divine judgment. i want you to listen to me. because when i finish today, you're going to see or hear things that you have never heard before. and i'm going to tell you what's coming. by the guidance of god. and the honorable elijah mohommad. i'm going to judge that nation.
now, the honorable elijah mohommad said, america is in the cross hairs, these are not his words, they are mine, of the judgment of god. he is after america. oh, farrakhan, if you don't love america, leave it. you can't tell me to leave. i can tell you to go. >> go ahead, minister. >> well, let me just be more clear. we have paid a price to own this with our indigenous brothers and sisters. we paid a price. i know you're an immigrant,
bless your heart. when you got here, the streets were paved with gold for you. from the sweat and blood of slaves that worked for 310 years for no pay. >> go ahead! say that! >> and another 150 years as a free slave, never getting what we are worth. america is under divine judgment. now, look at this scripture in the book of revelations. the nations are angry. look around the world. all the nations are upset.
all of them. then the scripture said thy wrath has come. nobody cares that the nations are angry. you have got to worry about the wrath of god that has come. you want to know about what is all else? see, you all, with your tender hearts, you never understood what justice is. justice for farr vo not the same as justice for the children of israel. justice for the oppressed is not
the same as justice for the oppressor. mercy is for the oppressed. god has not marked whatsoever a man sewth the same shall he also reap. oh, my god. that's horror story for somebody. said behold before the great and dreadful day of the lord, i'm gonna send you elijah the prophet. what is he gonna do?
he is gonna turn the hearteds of the children, you, back to your father and your father's heart back to you, les the earth will be smithen with a curse. this is a sad day. it is a great day, but it is a dreadful day. it's great for the righteous. it's dreadful for the wicked. thomas jefferson knew it was coming, tried to beat it. abraham lincoln knew it was coming, tried to beat it. i went by dr. king's monument. i've learned to love my brother because if you would go and
study the speeches that dr. king made in the last two years of his life, you will know that dr. king was not a dreamer. dr. king had awakened from that dream and said, i quote, that that my dream had turned to a nightmare. these are the words of dr. king. and the night before he was assassinated, i want you to see, i want you to see what dr. king was saying a few days before. oh, my brother, dr. king. he started talking about -- i
want to quote him right, because this is too important. ha ha ha. my son said, what dr. king said, i want to get the language right tonight! and when you read how dr. king evolved, we will evolve with him. he was not a dreamer. he was a great revolutionary thinker like his brother, brother mall come and while i'm on the subject of brother malcolm, now there is a group of people out here that think that farrakhan has something to do with the murder of brother
malcolm. okay. let's deal with it. i want to ask you a question. do you know any murderer that white folk don't like? that they could pin a crime on? and he is still standing here speaking with his foot deep up in their backside? from this sacred place, we ask that the fbi reveal, open up all the files on brother malcolm x.
don't redact a damn thing, and let the people see what really happened to brother malcolm. see, they are killing me with you through media and some who claim to know malcolm and love malcolm. and if i could get close to you, i would show you that you don't love him as much as you say. yeah, well. you-all killed him. well, some muslims were involved.
who was the man giving him mouth-to-mouth resuscitation when he got shot? it wasn't one of the followers of elijah mohammed. it was an agent from the police department undercover. the white man wanted malcolm dead. and naturally, we were angry with brother because he spoke against his teacher and his teacher's personal life. now, hey, hey, hey, hey, reverend, black leader, you all, let's talk a little bit. see, i don't want these holy knee grows to talk about how bad elijah mohammed was.
