In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

In America, according to the Constitution, we have the right of freedom of speech and freedom of assembly. I’m grateful to God to live in a country that made that type of provision in the basic legal document that is the foundation of the politics and governance of this society.

Why did the founding fathers say “freedom of speech” was necessary?

When you have government that tells lies to the people and manipulates fear in the people to accomplish agendas that are not necessarily in the best interest of the people, “freedom of speech” will allow one to speak truth to power to save the citizens from the deceptive practice of wicked government.


As a Black man, and a student of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, there is so much in America that is not only against the Black and the Brown and the people of color, but there’s so much in America that is adverse to what is in the best interest of the American people. Once we are saddled with fear over consequences of speaking “the truth,” then “the lie” can continue to be told, and the lie can continue to deceive the many.

The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

In the Book of Revelation, Chapter 12, verse 9, the scripture teaches that “Satan deceived the whole world.” This is because the people did not know Satan, and they didn’t have a correct Knowledge of God, for the revelation of one is the revelation of the other as the Honorable Elijah Muhammad has taught us. So God would have to, at the end of Satan’s time, raise one whom He would back with His Power to give him the strength and the courage to tell the truth that would not only free Black people from the oppressive hand of their tormentor, but it would free White people from the deceptive practice of those who are in power that manipulate the nature of White people, and manipulate the ignorance of Black people to do that which will benefit the few to the detriment of the many.

When the Europeans came out of Europe, and had the freedom to go throughout the Earth, and as John The Revelator saw that “pale horse:” “Death” was the rider, and “Hell” followed closely behind. Everywhere that this people went, the rider was Death, and Hell was left for the Indigenous People of our planet.

The Honorable Elijah Muhammad said that since their being “let loose” for the last 4,000 years, he said they have killed “100 million people for every 1,000 years” of their existence on our planet; which means, then, that 600 million people have been killed under the Rule of Satan. …

According to statistics, there are over 7.6 billion people on our planet. And as you probably have heard me say in other lectures, Henry Kissinger, the former secretary of state under President Richard Nixon, and Zbigniew Brzezinski, the national security adviser under President Jimmy Carter, were both involved in considerations that determined the resources of our planet were few and the people were many. So as the scarce resources of the planet have to be shared by 7.6 billion people, under Kissinger a plan was hatched that 2-3 billion people on our planet would have to be culled. “To cull” means “to destroy,” “to kill.”

Many of you reading these words cannot wrap your mind around a human that could think that the resources of the Earth are “too little” and the population is “too much,” so “we must kill 2-3 billion people.” Kissinger, and the U.S. government in agreement with him, decided that the people who would be killed would be in the Third World—but since this culling has many Third World people living in industrialized countries, it would start as well in the industrialized countries.

Could this be why in Africa, AIDS has slaughtered Black men and women by the tens of thousands, particularly in areas where there are mineral resources necessary to keep America in power in this 21st Century? Could this be why Black women in America are said to be the No. 1 carrier of the AIDS virus?

Could it be that 30 years ago when the birth rate of Blacks was outstripping the birthrate of Whites so much so that demographers said by 2050 Blacks would either be equal to the White population, or greater than the population—and they didn’t stand still on those figures, they went to work with Eugenics, Planned Parenthood and pills that aborted children, and it was concentrated in the Black community?

At that time 30 years ago, the Hispanics were not the ones that were “the majority” of the minority populations; it was the Blacks. Today, our population has gone down when compared to the population of Mexicans and others, their population has outstripped ours. But this is by design … and soon, that same genocidal thought will be against the Mexicans and others as well. Since we are growing in number some say by 2046 America will be a Brown country: White Supremacists cannot abide by the fact that this country that was “made by White people for White people” will now be in the hands of Brown people.

And this is why White Supremacists were so upset at the coming to power of a Black man and a Black family in the White House. This brought out of White people the worst of themselves, as well as the best, for there are many White people who voted for President Obama—but there are others who can’t stand his shadow.

America has become an “armed camp.” … The 2nd Amendment that we spoke of previously was discussed in the context as “a well-regulated militia being necessary for the maintenance of a ‘free state’” and“the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

At the time that this amendment became a part of the Constitution, there was no “well-regulated militia.” In order for the people to keep the freedom they had gotten through wars for their independence, it was necessary that the average citizen should “bear arms.”

This had nothing to do with the slaves. The Slave Code of Law said that no Black man should have weapons. And as it was then, so it is now. Even if you’re a policeman, or you have the authority to carry a weapon: Sometimes the White members of the police force, when they get into difficulty with you, they slaughter you because you have a weapon. In the summer of 2012, in the Auburn-Gresham section of Chicago, the police made a sweep and arrested 300 young Black men, went into their homes looking for weapons. According to the Chicago Sun-Times newspaper, they found 47 weapons, one of which was an AK-47.

Did you know that in the year 2017, the estimated total number of firearms available to citizens in the United States had increased to approximately 393 million? In 2009, there were a reported 140 million handguns, 110 million rifles, among which were assault rifles, 86 million shotguns. In 2010, approximately 9.2 million guns were sold in America. In 2011, over 10.8 million guns were sold in America. And, in the year 2012: Every gun store ran out of munitions. With the 2012 Newtown, Connecticut mass shooting and slaughter of children and teachers at an elementary school, and the threat that gun control laws would be passed, assault weapons were fleeing off of the shelves of gun stores and gun shops ran out of munitions and ran out of weapons.

As late as 2010 the Supreme Court issued a decision that the Constitution gives an individual citizen the right to have a “handgun” in their home for self defense—but with these assault weapons, the intent is for slaughter. What are you preparing for? As I said previously: You already have a “regulated militia” in the police, SWAT teams, sheriff’s department, the ATF, the FBI, the National Guard and federal troops.

What does America need with 1,200 well-armed militias since you already have a regulated militia to keep the peace?

Oh, my dear people of America: Can’t you see where this is headed?

The United States government said that Muammar Gadhafi of Libya was not a “good leader” because “he’s killing his own people.” That is what civil war brings. America is not strange to a civil war: More Americans died in the Civil War than in any other war since.

Civil wars are bloody wars … . Every house on this Earth, from China to Russia to Poland to the African states, to the Caribbean, is filled with people who are dissatisfied with something of their government. If America wants to meddle in another man’s house and overthrow a government that might not be in the favor of the interests of the multi-national corporations, the banksters [“bankers/gangsters”] and those who run things in the world, all America has to do, through the CIA, is go into those countries and begin to meddle in their affairs by organizing the dissatisfied elements in those countries and then arming them.

That is what happened in Libya: You took the dissatisfied element in Libya, you organized them, and you now have admitted that you, America, gave permission for them to be armed with American weapons by some of your client states. Isn’t this what was happening in Syria? The people that have the weapons now in Libya are the same people that you don’t want to have weapons. They are “Islamists,” they are “Jihadists”; they are those that want to set up an Islamic state or government. So what you did in Libya is coming back to bite you.

Let me tell you what’s coming, because the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, God gave Him “eyes” to understand every utterance made by the former prophets. In fact, He is the Fulfiller of what all the prophets spoke, and that’s why the Bible teaches, “I come in the volume of the Book. …” So, what’s coming? The people are well-armed, they dislike their government, they’re angry … . One judge in Texas told the people that if Barack Obama was re-elected they should prepare for civil war. You have people who wanted to secede from America because they called this Black man a socialist and said he had a new way of distributing wealth … . But you, oligarchs that run America, you plutocrats, you 1 Percenters that control the wealth of 99 Percent: If there is no genuine distribution of wealth, you can’t hold on to the 1 Percent or that percentage of the wealth that you have.

When people are so dissatisfied with their government, as they are, you have armed your people to destroy their own government and people. You, too, will have to fight your own people. …

In the Book of Isaiah, Chapter 49, verse 26, the scripture teaches: “And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine. …” Since you love to kill, God is going to turn you on yourself, which means killing your own people, because the people hate their government, and they want real change.

And if you don’t bring that real change about, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad told me to tell you that the War that is coming up: You will send away these precious soldiers by the tens of thousands, and they’ll be coming back by the “fives” and “tens,” but when they come back, there’ll be a New Government in place.

I am hoping that the words that we are speaking to you, although they may be kind of harsh and difficult to swallow: Don’t “throw them up”—go back and think. Then look at the events that are taking place all around you, and ask yourself: If the society breaks down into anarchy, what will these guns do for the destruction of the greatest nation in the history of the present world? …

I thank you for granting me this privilege to Speak Truth to Power. I thank God for the founding fathers that said that “freedom of speech” was absolutely necessary to protect the democracy.
