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.

With the Sissy Bowl well nigh upon us and Slick Willy Belichick, Sneaky Pete Carroll, Richard Sherman Hemsley, and that deaf, dumb, and blind kid Tommy Brady about to sashay though the tunnel into the limelight and onto the world stage, let’s hearken back to yesteryear to the game NFL Media analyst Elliot Harrison regards as the greatest Super Bowl ever played.

According to Harrison’s piece “Ranking the Super Bowls,” the greatest Super Bowl game of all time was Super Bowl XIII. It featured the greatest collection of NFL talent ever to gather for a game. In addition to Coaches Chuck Noll and Tom Landry, 14 players would end up being voted into the Hall of Fame: nine Pittsburgh Steelers and five Dallas Cowboys.

Super Bowl XIII was the first Super Bowl to feature a rematch of a previous Super Bowl. Two years earlier in Super Bowl X the Steelers had beaten the Cowboys, 21–17, and in Super Bowl XIII both teams were vying to be the first NFL team to win three Super Bowls. Dallas was also the defending Super Bowl XII champion.

Super Bowl XIII was also the first Super Bowl with a true heavyweight title-fight feel, given the Steelers’ and Cowboys’ unquestioned status as the NFL’s two best teams. The quarterback match up of Terry Bradshaw and Roger Staubach is still the only one in Super Bowl history to feature two quarterbacks with two Super Bowl victories.

Both teams entered the game with the best defenses in the league (the Cowboys only allowed 107.6 rushing yards per game while the Steelers only allowed 107.8), and each side took advantage of the other team’s mistakes throughout the game.

According to Harrison, Super Bowl XIII deserved its number one ranking for memorable moments, which included a strip-sack for a touchdown, a dropped pass from an all-pro veteran tight end who was wide open in the end zone, a controversial pass interference call, and an unintentional squib kick and a subsequent fumbled return, which proved to be the game’s turning point.

NBC broadcast the game with Dick Enberg supplying the pre-game notes, Curt Gowdy doing the play-by-play, and Merlin Olsen and John Brodie adding the color commentary.

Universal Health Care Will Destroy America‘s Middle Class

By Jerry A. Kane

Dictator emeritus Fidel Castro has applauded Brother O and his Bread and Circuses administration for advancing universal health care in their takeover of America’s health care system.

“We consider health reform to have been an important battle and a success of his (Obama’s) government. … [T]he government … has approved medical attention for the majority of its citizens, something that Cuba was able to do half a century ago,” Castro wrote in an essay published by Cuba’s mainstream press.

So what does half a century of medical treatment for the majority look like in Cuba? Sicko Michael Moore boasts that Cuban medical treatment is great for everyone, except of course for the average Cuban. For Cuba’s common man “great” means dilapidated hospitals, filthy conditions, neglect, starvation, and 5 percent take-home pay after taxes.

When the Soviet Union stopped supporting Cuba’s economy with $5 billion in annual aid, its health care system hit the skids. The situation has become so bleak that Canadian doctors urge their patients to take “a suitcase full of medical supplies to drop off at a local clinic or hospital” when they vacation on the island. According to a pharmacist from Moron, Cuba, “If you need the most complicated operation, you can get it at a Cuban hospital. But medicines are the problem.”

“We know how difficult life is here, so when we come for a vacation, we always bring a few bottles of antibiotics and Tylenol,” said a Canadian housewife who vacations in Cuba.

“My doctor in Toronto told me that there is nothing available in Cuba, so I came prepared [with tubes of antibiotic cream, aspirin, decongestants and bandages] just in case I needed any of these things for myself. But I am leaving most of what I brought for the maids and the bartender,” added another Canadian vacationer.

Cuba has a three-tiered health care system. The first tier is the “medical tourism” system, designed for tourists who come to Cuba on health tourism packages to obtain treatment at cut-rate prices—a kidney transplant, for example, costs about half as much as one in the U.S.

The Cuban government established the tourist-only hospitals to cater to the thousands of visitors from Latin America and parts of Europe. Tourists pay hard cash for discount prices on botox, liposuction, breast implants, and dental work. Cuban specialists also treat Parkinson’s disease and retinatis pigmentosa, a hereditary disease that causes night blindness.

Tourist hospitals are clean, state-of-the-art facilities well-stocked with the latest equipment and imported medicines. 

“Tourists have everything they need. But for Cubans, it’s different. Unless you work with tourists or have a relative in Miami sending you money, you will not be able to get what you need if you are sick in Cuba. As a doctor, I find it disgusting,” said a pediatrician from Moron.

The second health-care system is for the Cuban “nomenklatura,” i.e., the elites of the communist party, which includes bureaucrats, the military, official artists and writers, and other party cronies. Their health care mirrors the first-world system for medical tourists.

Cuba’s third system is the one for the common people, and it is truly wretched. Hospitals and clinics are unsanitary and falling apart. Surgeons lack basic supplies and must reuse latex gloves. Patients must buy their own sutures on the black market and bring their own bed sheets, soap, towels, food, light bulbs and toilet paper to the hospital. Basic medicines are scarce.

Local pharmacies are neat and spotless, but they lack even the most common items, such as aspirin and rubbing alcohol. However, they do stock a lot of green boxes of herbal diet teas from Spain. Aspirin and common medications can be purchased at government-run dollar stores, but the prices are too high for most Cubans, whose average wage is about $12 a month.

“I haven’t seen aspirin in a Cuban store here for more than a year. If you have any pills in your purse, I’ll take them. Even if they have passed their expiry date,” said a nurse from Moron.

The equipment used in the third tier system is either antiquated or nonexistent. Although Cuban doctors are well trained, they have nothing to work with. When American doctors travel to Cuba on errands of mercy, they take with them as much equipment and supplies as they can carry.

“The hospital conditions are pretty deplorable. … It’s like operating with knives and spoons,” said Dr. Gary Nishioka, an American plastic surgeon, who had just returned from a trip to Cuba.

Although many of the residents of Moron are fortunate because they work in nearby resorts and often receive foreign medications as tips, conditions have deteriorated so badly for most Cubans that diseases such as tuberculosis, leprosy, typhoid, and dengue fever—eradicated years before—have resurfaced among the population.

To finance Cuba’s universal health care system, the government uses the money from its joint-venture operations in manufacturing, tourism, banking, and mineral exploration with foreign companies. About 30,000 Cubans work in these operations and receive 5 percent of their total wages; the Cuban government “reinvests” the other 95 percent for the good of the entire population.

“There is absolutely nothing free about Cuban health care …. Social services are financed from the sweat of the poor Cuban workers,” said Ismael Sambra, president of the Cuban-Canadian Foundation.

Some of the most courageous, admirable, and persecuted people in Cuba are doctors who have rebelled against the government’s health-care injustices as well as other injustices. Renowned neurosurgeon Hilda Molina spoke out against the government’s decision to turn Cuba’s prestigious International Centre for Neurological Restoration into a tourists-only hospital.

“Cubans should be treated the same as foreigners. Cubans have less rights in their own country than foreigners who visit here,” Molina said.

Molina has been branded a counter-revolutionary and banned from practicing medicine in Cuba. She lives in Havana and survives on an allowance from her family abroad. After 15 years of trying to obtain a visa to visit her family in Argentina, she was finally granted permission last June. The government repeatedly refused her request to travel having designated her brain “a national asset.”

The ill effects of universal health care on the average Cuban has been immense. Everyone but the communist elite now has equally deplorable universal health care. Average citizens in the United Kingdom and Canada are also experiencing the collapse of universal health care in their countries. Yet too many middle-class Americans would rather cling to the lies that Brother O and the progressive Democrats tell them about universal health care, than rely on their own eyes to see what has happened to the middle class in the countries that have tried it.
