Flashback: Farrakhan Said “Stalk Them and Kill Them”

It’s been over a month since Nation of Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan called on his followers to rise up and kill their enemies, and the silence of the Obama Justice Department has been deafening.

Likewise,  the MSM has been shamefully quiet, too — as if this is acceptable behavior for the leader of a 50,000-strong denomination. It most certainly isn’t.

Farrakhan’s shocking words came during a July 30 speech at Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Miami:

“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,” Farrakhan said.

“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,” he added.

Newsmax Talk Show host Steve Malzberg wonders, like I did earlier this month, how this unhinged maniac can get away making a direct threat against whites (more specifically cops) and not face any consequences.

But it gets worse.

Via Breitbart: ARMED BLACK PANTHERS TO TEXAS COPS: ‘WE WILL START CREEPING UP ON YOU IN THE DARKNESS’

Not part of a chant, the march leader, wearing the rank of colonel, shouted directly to Harris County mounted deputies through a megaphone. “You think we’re not pissed off a bunch about y’all killing our sisters? You think it’s okay? [We’re] the wrong n***ers to mess with. You’re gonna stop doing what you’re doing, or we will start creeping up on you in the darkness.”

This was said two weeks prior to the assassination Harris County Deputy Darren H. Goforth.

Shannon Miles, a black male, allegedly came “creeping up” behind Harris County Deputy Darren Goforth in the darkness on the night of August 28. While Goforth stood at a convenience store pumping gas into his patrol vehicle, Miles allegedly raised a pistol and shot him dead.

Slogans of the Black Lives Matter/Black Grievance industry:  

“Stalk them and kill them”

“We will start creeping up on you in the darkness.”

“When those mother f**kers are by themselves, that’s when when we should start f***ing them up.”

“Pigs in a Blanket, fry them like bacon.”

‘What do want, shoot back, what do we want, dead cops, when do we want it, now!”

How are these people not terrorists?

And does it surprise you that the DNC passed a resolution supporting Black Lives Matter at their summer meeting?

Does it further surprise you that BLM rejected the endorsement because the stupid, ridiculous, insipid, pathetic Dems are not radical enough for them?

The Democratic National Committee tried to genuflect over the weekend to the Black Lives Matter crowd, but got the back of the hand for its trouble — or the middle finger, more accurately.

UPDATE:

On the Kelly File, Monday night, Megyn Kelly brought up a fact I did not know about a Black Lives Matter supporter’s murder of the two cops in New York City, earlier this year:

“The morning before he killed those cops, he tweeted out: ‘Pigs in a blanket, fry them like bacon,” she told Harris County Sheriff Hickman. “It’s a reference to dead cops.”

Forum: Do You Favor Deportation Of Illegal Migrants?

Every week on Monday morning , the Council and our invited guests weigh in at the Watcher’s Forum, short takes on a major issue of the day, the culture, or daily living. This week’s question: Do You Favor Deportation Of Illegal Migrants?

Bookworm Room : I strongly support deportation — and I do not believe that it will require the government hunting down and deporting every single illegal alien in the country. Just as illegal aliens self-deported when the economy sank in 2008, illegal aliens will self-deport if (a) we stop giving them endless benefits and (b) they know there’s a reasonable risk that they will be bundled across the border post haste, taking their children with them. (Clearly, I do not believe that the 14th amendment, which was intended to give citizenship to the descendants of slaves who were forcibly imported into this country, applies to people who violate the law in order to be in this country in time to give birth.)

And speaking of children and the inevitable Leftist cry that “deportation hurts the children,” there will always be children who, sadly, suffer because of their parents’ decisions. At some point, one simply has to say “enough,” and embark upon a policy that prevents people from unilaterally deciding that they have a right to bring themselves and their extended families illegally into America. A strong border and sane immigration policy is also for the children.

A nation has the right to defend its borders. It also has the right to pass laws that control who comes in — even if people subsequently determine that those weren’t the best or smartest laws. If we get control over our borders and realize that “Hey, the Chamber of Commerce was right that we need more super cheap labor to drive down wages for other Americans and to drive blacks out of the market (bad things) — all in the service of making consumer goods cheaper (good thing),” then we should pass laws accordingly. Our laws should not be decided by people who have no legal right to be here in the first place.

Puma By Design : Deport them ALL. The streets of New York City would be a lot more peaceful and safer if illegal immigrants were deported. Adding to that, the prisons would be emptier.

It is a long-standing joke here in NYC that even at a time, back in the day when illegal immigrants were being deported, it meant very little.

There are those who simply walk across the U.S. Mexico border while others cross the Canadian/U.S. border. Simple as that.

About fifteen years ago, a former neighbor and friend, may she rest in peace, an American became involved with a Jamaican fellow who did a year’s stint at Riker’s Island for the illegal possession of a firearm.

Upon the end of his sentence, he was deported, say on a Monday and standing back in my neighbor’s living room the following Friday afternoon.

As far as living standards, they bring their bad habits with them. In residential buildings across NYC, there are fifteen to twenty family members or friends living in a one or two bedroom apartment.

In private homes, often rented out, it is far worse. I recall stepping out one morning to go to work and seeing a plastic bag full of garbage nailed to a tree. WHO DOES THAT?

How does on invest in a house but not a trashcan? Some of the long time homeowners in our area are fighting with their new neighbors who popped up overnight not to throw their garbage on the sidewalk or in the service road, which they never do during the day. Now THAT would imply that they know better, wouldn’t it?

Moving on, we are all aware that illegal immigrants come to country, get an education and all sorts of entitlements, among them food stamps or whatever it is they get today on our dime.

Throughout large immigration (legal and illegal) communities in NYC, there are these storefront shipping businesses.

Immigrants, many illegal, use their government entitlements to purchase everything from clothes to appliances of ALL sizes. The items are stored in huge bins to be shipped back to the individual’s family and friends in their native countries which can be purchased at supermarkets and 99-cent stores that cater to that community.

Immigrants illegal and otherwise who are collecting food stamps purchase perishables, stock the bins with their purchases and again, ship the items back overseas to their families. The worst part is that no one bats an eye.

I only learned of this when my cab driver, a legal immigrant from Guyana complained about it to me one day.Many, legal immigrants who work for a living complain but it never goes further than lip service. Probably because for every person of family who immigrates to the United States legally, at least a dozen, two dozen and more family members follow behind crossing the border illegally.

JoshuaPundit : Why no! Let’s simply allow more and more illegal migrants in until they finish replicating the corrupt, lawless hellholes they left here right in America!

It’s very important to understand that simply deporting 20 million people or so (that 11 million figure is so 1990’s) is only a start and not a remedy in itself. Thanks largely to Ted Kennedy, (please see my obituary of him dated 2009) there is a large legal infrastructure, well funded organizations and a political elite dedicated to exactly what I proposed in the above paragraph. It will be a war to the knife with people like the Democrat Party and La Raza leading the charge, That’s something I don’t think Donald Trump understands fully after reading his immigration plan in full

A fence is a fence, but what is really going to be ultimately involved to cut to the roots of the problem is entirely new laws by which we both make it less tenable for illegal aliens to come here and determine more precisely whom American will extend the privilege of legal migration to. And ideally, these laws will also include a retroactive principal of at least a decade to reexamine who has been allowed to migrate legally as ‘refugees’ using diversity visas and phony asylum claims. That’s unfortunately necessary because of the Obama Administration’s open and long term  advocacy for illegal migrants, winking at ‘refugee’s like the Tsaernovs of Boston Marathon fame and serial failure to enforce existing laws.

Immigration worked quite well for America when the applicants were well screened, when there was no extensive welfare state, when the culture of much of the migrants was compatible with our own, and when a certain degree of assimilation was a given.

The Glittering Eye : Yes. However, I think we’ll get more bang for the buck with serious workplace enforcement than we will by building a higher or wider or more closely guarded wall. Nowadays quite a few of our illegal immigrants entered the country legally with tourist or student visas and just stayed. A wall across the southern border will do nothing about those.

Independent Sentinel: If they are criminals I do. People who have come in over the last seven years of Obamnesty need to be looked at very closely and no legalization should take place until serious measures are taken to close the border. No citizenship should be allowed until they wait their turn. They don’t need a new line, they need to go to the back of the line we have.

Nice Deb: I’m for deporting the criminals, but I don’t think we can realistically deport everyone. People who came here illegally and stayed here illegally should not be awarded with citizenship. Perhaps they could receive a pathway to some type of legal status, but they should never be allowed to vote. They should not have access to entitlement programs. If they want full citizenship, they should go back to Mexico and come back legally.

Well, there you have it.

Sheriff David Clarke: There’s a War On Cops Led By “High Profile People…”

On Justice with Jeanine Pirro, Saturday night, Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke unloaded on the Black Lives Matter Movement,  and the “high profile people” he says are leading the movement. Almost too angry to speak, he called the Black Lives Matter activists, “slime” and “filth” who should be eradicated from the towns they infest.

Judge Jeanine opened her show, with the story of the latest horrific cop killing. 

Deputy Darren Goforth, 47, had just left an accident scene last night when he stopped by a gas station on Telge and West Road. As he was pumping gas, a man approached him from behind, said nothing and fired multiple shots. Once the deputy fell to the ground, authorities say the suspect fired more shots. Deputy Goforth was pronounced dead on the scene

A witness told reporters she saw a woman sobbing over Deputy Goforth’s body: ”She was laying on top him. She was saying that was her best friend and that he had two kids.”

An intense manhunt covered Harris County for hours overnight. At about 2:30am, authorities converged on a home on Crystal Lake in Copperfield, led there by a tip. The focus of the investigation is on the red pickup truck in the home’s driveway. The person of interest was taken into custody at what’s said to be his mother’s house.

“Is it open open season on law enforcement in this country?” Pirro asked  Sheriff David Clarke.

“Judge, I am too pissed off tonight to be diplomatic  about what’s going on and I’m not going to stick my head in the sand on it. I said last December that war had been declared on the American police officer led by some high profile people – one coming out of the White House and one coming out the the United States Department of Justice. It’s open season right now – there’s no doubt about it.”

He continued, “Anytime a law enforcement officer is killed, a little of every police officer in America dies along with them.”

Pirro, referencing areas in the country where black activists have done a lot of rabble-rousing,  asked Clarke if these cop shootings can happen anywhere in America, now.

“Anywhere in the United States,” the Sheriff answered.  “And I’m tired of hearing people call these blacks, ‘activists.’ They’re not activists. This is black slime and it needs to be eradicated from American society and culture.”

Pirro asked what can be done.

“I need every law abiding person in the USA to stand up and start pushing back against this slime – this filth, ” Clarke seethed

He said the American people need to push back when “these ugly people” come to their towns and “start talking about stuff on social media.”  He said people need to “to push back against it and demand that the activists get out of their towns.

“The American police officer is holding these communities together and we need the support of the people that we defend  every day in order to get that done.”

“God bless the Harris County Sheriff’s Office,” Clarke added. “And kudos to that District Attorney for acknowledging the War on Police, but I’m tired of qualifying all my statements by talking about bad apples in the policing profession.”

Clarke continued, “this was an assault on the American way of life – the American Justice System. If the American police officer backs off, we’re all in trouble.”

“The American police officer is strong and we will continue to fight back we will continue to sacrifice ourselves for the good, law-abiding people in every community in the United States,” the sheriff said.

Think I haven’t been keeping tabs on what’s going on out there because my output here at Nice Deb has been kinda low, lately? Sorry about that, but writing for PJ Media has taken up most of my time.

But yeah, I’ve been noticing.

Breitbart: BLACK ACTIVISTS CALL FOR LYNCHING AND HANGING OF WHITE PEOPLE AND COPS

Members of the #FYF911 or #FukYoFlag and #BlackLivesMatter movements called for the lynching and hanging of white people and cops. They encouraged others on a radio show Tuesday night to “turn the tide” and kill white people and cops to send a message about the killing of black people in America.

One of the F***YoFlag organizers is called “Sunshine.” She has a radio blog show hosted from Texas called, “Sunshine’s F***ing Opinion Radio Show.”

An unidentified black man said “when those mother f**kers are by themselves, that’s when when we should start f***ing them up. Like they do us, when a bunch of them ni**ers takin’ one of us out, that’s how we should roll up.”  He said, “Cause we already roll up in gangs anyway. There should be six or seven black mother f**ckers, see that white person, and then lynch their ass. Let’s turn the tables.”

They conspired that if “cops started losing people,” then “there will be a state of emergency.”

He speculated that one of two things would happen, “a big-ass [R’s?????] war,” or “ni**ers, they are going to start backin’ up.”

“We are already getting killed out here so what the f**k we got to lose?”

Sunshine could be heard saying, “Yep, that’s true. That’s so f**king true.”

He said, “We need to turn the tables on them. Our kids are getting shot out here. Somebody needs to become a sacrifice on their side.

He said, “Everybody ain’t down for that s**t, or whatever, but like I say, everybody has a different position of war.” He continued, “Because they don’t give a f**k anyway.” He said again, “We might as well utilized them for that s**t and turn the tables on these n**ers.”

Extreme language warning:

Note that he encourages fellow blacks to kill “a mother f**ker that is alone”  and “take a picture of it and then send it to the mother f**kers.”

We “just need one example,” and “then people will start watchin’.” This will turn the tables on s**t, he said. He said this will start “a trickle-down effect.” He said that when one white person is hung and then they are just “flat-hanging,” that will start the “trickle-down effect.” He continued, “Black people are good at starting trends.”

The next day, Roanoke happened. The first social media murder.

 PJ Media: Why Hasn’t Louis Farrakhan Been Arrested Yet?

It’s been nearly a week since Nation of Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan called on his followers to rise up and kill their perceived enemies, and the silence of the Obama Justice Department has been deafening. Likewise,  the MSM has been shamefully quiet, too — as if this is acceptable behavior for the leader of a 50,000-strong denomination. It most certainly isn’t.

Farrakhan’s shocking words came during a July 30 speech at Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Miami:

“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,” Farrakhan said.

“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,” he added.

In case the message wasn’t clear enough, the hateful clip was posted on Farrakhan’s Facebook page Monday with the blunt hashtag “#JusticeOrElse.”

Or else?

If this doesn’t meet the “Brandenburg test“ for incitement to violence, I don’t know what does.

In 1969, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that, to merit conviction, the violence advocated must be intended, likely and imminent.

“I’m the most successful person ever to run for the presidency, by far,” Trump recently bragged to the Des Moines Register. “Nobody’s ever been more successful than me. I’m the most successful person ever to run.”

The Council Has Spoken! Our Watcher’s Council Results

The Council has spoken, the votes have been cast, and the results are in for this week’s Watcher’s Council match up.

“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. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs. There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well.” – Booker T. Washington

“We must become members of a new race, overcoming petty prejudice, owing our ultimate allegiance not to nations but to our fellow men within the human community.” – Haile Selassie, Emperor of Ethiopia

“Bad schools, crime, drugs, high taxes, the social security mess, racism, the health care ? crisis? unemployment, welfare state dependency, illegitimacy, the gap between rich and poor. What do these issues have in common? Politicians, the media, and our so-called “leaders” lie to us about them. They lie about the cause. They lie about the effect. They lie about the solutions.”
– Larry Elder

This week’s winning essay,Puma By Design’s Black Lives Matter Hypocrites Oblivious to Epidemic of Black Violence, Genocide is a forceful eloquent takedown of the hypocrisy of the #Black Lives Matter movement. Here’s a slice:

Last Wednesday night, after returning from a birthday party, Jamyla Bolden, was sitting on her mother’s bed doing her homework when someone walked up to their house and fired five shots into the home killing 9 year old Jamyla and hitting her mother, Kendric Henderson, in the leg.

St. Louis Dispatch:

They also believe the shooter stood close to the front of the house and took aim through the bedroom window. There were five visible bullet holes on the exterior of the house: three in the screens of two windows with shattered glass behind them, and two more in the house’s aluminum siding….

‘When I turned her over I could see the blood coming out of her nose, but I didn’t know where she was shot at. I kept saying ‘I think she’s been shot, call 911,’ Henderson said.

Grieving the loss of a friend, one of Jamyla’s fourth grade classmates asked, “Why did she have to die.”

Where is the outrage?

Where is the Black Lives Matter movement?

HELLO? I CAN’T HEAR YOU, fake Black guy, Shaun King, DeRay McKesson, leaders of the Black Lives Matter movement!

Nothing, just CRICKETS.

The night after Jamyla’s ten-year-old brother witnessed the death of his sister; more than 150 people lead by Black Lives Matter took to the streets of Ferguson to protest the death of an armed black teenager shot and killed by two officers last Wednesday.

According to police reports, just two police officers were preparing to serve a warrant, two black teenagers, armed and in possession of crack cocaine made a run for it out the back door of the home.

The officers pursued the teens and after being ordered to stop, 18-year-old Mansur Ball-Bey (above) refused to drop his gun when ordered to do so, may have even pointed the firearm at the officers and it was a wrap.

NYDN

Ball-Bey was fatally wounded and pronounced dead at the scene while the second suspect, only identified as being in his mid to late teens, managed to escape, police said.

Police say they found a stolen gun and an extended magazine in Ball-Bey’s possession and that four guns and an unspecified quantity of crack cocaine were recovered at the scene. Several others inside the home were taken into custody without incident….

As usual, Ball-Bey’s death presented opportunity for those with a nefarious agenda and instantly became the next battle cry from Black Lives Matter to create abut chaos, riot, tear and burn down that, which has not yet been rebuilt after they incited last year’s riots that all but destroyed the city of Ferguson, Missouri.

There are elements in the Black community who will white wash an individual fundamentally transforming a thug into a martyr but depending on whom one asks, it has yet to be determined whether or Ball-Bey fits the bill.

According to Ball-Bey’s family, he was a good kid but the following video in which Ball-Bey, a gangster rapper, consorted with gang bangers, possessed guns and bought into the gangster mentality might imply otherwise. (Warning: Raw language)

NFL Hall Of Famer And Criminal Behavior Adviser Cris Carter!

Puma By Design : My WOTW nomination this week goes to NFL Hall of Famer Cris Carter for remarks made during a 2014 speech t the NFL Rookie Symposium. Carter along with Warren Sapp imparted a little friendly advice to rookies on how “to get around” getting in trouble.


“Y’all not gonna all do the right stuff. I gotta teach yall how to get around all this stuff too. If you gonna have a crew, one of them fools got to know he going to jail…I let my own boys know … y’all want to keep rolling like this, Then I need to know who’s going to be the fall guy, who’s going to be driving. Y’all not going to do all the right stuff now. I got to teach y’all how to get around all this stuff.

Beating the message like a drum, Carter repeats “find a fall guy” “fool” Translation: Sucker.

One year later, the cat is out of the bag and the NFL in a statement is distancing itself from Carter’s remarks:

“This was an unfortunate and inappropriate comment made by Cris Carter during the 2014 NFC rookie symposium,” the NFL said. “The comment was not representative of the message of the symposium or any other league program. The league’s player engagement staff immediately expressed concern about the comment to Cris. The comment was not repeated in the 2014 AFC session or this year’s symposium.”

“Unfortunate” “inappropriate” “not representative of the message or the symposium.” Whom are they kidding? At a time when NFL players are getting into trouble for everything from drugs to rape to domestic violence to murder, Carter’s advice speaks volume as to the mentality of the NFL, from the top down to the players.

NFL players are a commodity and their brand must be protected at all costs so instead of demanding that the players straighten up and fly right, they tell them not to get caught and if it gets too hot in the kitchen, to find a fall guy amongst their leeches.

On Sunday, Carter walked his advice back to rookies on twitter (@criscarter80):

“Seeing that video has made me realize how wrong I was. I was brought there to educate young people and instead I gave them very bad advice. Every person should take responsibility for his own actions. I’m sorry and I truly regret what I said that day.”

Getting caught out there dead to right tends to have that effect.

Remember when athletes we3re actually admired and held up to young people as role models and examples of good character? Of course, even back then a lot of stuff went on behind the scenes, but they were careful to take steps to keep it that way and were very conscious that young America’s eyes were on them.

Today, many of them could simply care less. But that’s part of what being a weasel is all about.Here’s a little something for your trophy room, Cris..

Well, there it is.

Check back next Tuesday to see who next week’s nominees for Weasel of the Week are!
