Farrakhan Calls for 10,000 Vigilantes to Murder Cops Who Kill Blacks

By Jerry A. Kane

Nation of Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan has issued a call for “10,000 fearless men” to rise up and stalk and “kill those who kill us.”

Farrakhan’s call for murderous vigilantes has been met with crickets from the Justice Department and mainstream major media outlets.

The leader of the 50,000 member Islamic religious movement issued the call for violence during his July 30 message delivered at the Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Miami, Florida:

“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. 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,” Farrakhan said.

And who are the “those” Farrakhan says needs killing?

“[L]et’s be clear here. When Farrakhan talks about “those who kill us,” he means the police — not the black criminals who actually commit the most violence against fellow blacks. He can’t mean white people because white-on-black crime just isn’t a thing. Black-on-white crime, on the other hand, is a huge, grossly out-of-proportion thing. He’s talking about stalking and killing the men and women in blue,” writes Debra Heine, PJ Media columnist

Heine wants the US government to do what the United Kingdom did with Anjem Choudary (a Muslim activist recently charged with supporting ISIS) and prosecute Farrakhan for incitement to violence.

In an effort to counter violent extremism, the Justice Department will fund a study on the use of social media by “far-right” and Islamic groups.

The Justice Department’s National Institute of Justice (NIJ) plans to dole out $585,719 to Michigan State University to “collect posts made in … active forums … by members of the far-right and … the Islamic Extremist community, as well as posts made in Facebook, LiveJournal, Twitter, YouTube, and Pastebin accounts …. ”

NIJ will examine more social media forums used by “far-right” groups than forums used by Islamic extremist groups.

“[W]e will assess the value of these messages in the social status of the individual posting the message, and the function of radical messages in the larger on-line identity of participants in extremist communities generally,” the Justice Department said.

In April 2013 Army training materials listed evangelical Christians, orthodox Jews, and conservative Catholics in the same category as religious extremists who belong to the KKK, Hamas, and Al Qaeda.

Another report in April of 2013 found that DHS had provided materials for a training program hosted by the Colorado State Patrol (CSP) in which police officers, deputies, and CSP troopers were given instruction on the dangers of rightwing extremism and the violence that would be perpetrated by sovereign citizen groups and outlaw motorcycle gangs.
