Homeland Security is designed to crush any violent opposition. . . . there is no need for violence if a million black men would stand in unity and combine their efforts with other freedom loving Americans in a non-violent, disciplined force for radical change in America.

Farrakhan's Final Call

By Marvin X


Declaring his Savior's Day speech would be his last, the Honorable Louis Farrakahn concluded his talk by saying he had done all he could for the so-called Negro and America, it was now time for the wrath of God to reveal itself. Early on in his lecture, he commented on the failure of all religions, including Islam, Judaism and Christianity, to purify themselves of white supremacy,. They all have abrogated their duty to teach the "full Gospel."

Many years ago I asked him in a conversation at his Chicago office, "Why do these religions make slaves of believers?" On Sunday he claimed they make slaves because of corruption at the top. The religious leaders have hijacked the righteous teachings of Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad -- thus making them an instrument of terrorism and imperialism. He called Bush a Christian terrorist and although he admired Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice, he said the two lacked "the full Gospel," and were being used as spokespersons for evil.

If this is indeed his last speech due to health reasons or whatever, the so-called Negro will suffer a serious void in leadership. Perhaps it will force him to stand up and do for self, especially if the "Savior" came in 1930 and the so-called Negro has yet to heed his message.

Farrakhan's greatest triumph was his greatest failure: bringing the million black men together. Because of religiosity, he was unable to hold them together and forge a mighty army for freedom, justice and equality. If Farrakhan had a million man army, similar to the North Korean million-man army, every politician in the world would bow down, billions of dollars would be on the table of the so-called Negro because he would represent an absolute power in the world.

America is more afraid of North Korea's million-man army than it is of the regime's nuclear weapons. Imagine a million black men marching in unity, unafraid of death but determined to fight for life, liberty, peace and justice. He warned the people to be very careful if and when war breaks out. Homeland Security is designed to crush any violent opposition. I would add that there is no need for violence if a million black men would stand in unity and combine their efforts with other freedom loving Americans in a non-violent, disciplined force for radical change in America.

Farrakhan is a master teacher, perhaps because he was a master student of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and Malcolm X. Because of health reasons, he may need to depart the public scene for a while, if so, he will be sorely missed and urgently needed as darkness descends upon America. But the Honorable Elijah Muhammad raised thousands of truth teachers, let them step to the front of the line and represent.
