Farrakhan’s Million Man March goes off but it seemed MSM weren’t covering it.
Under the banner of “justice or else” is this quote:
“If we are denied what rightfully belongs to us then there has to be unified action that we take that will force the justice that we seek.”
African American reparations is front an center. What an issue.
One of their demands is that Obama sign an executive order for reparatory justice.
[Dr. Ron Daniels speaking]We are a reparations movement in this direction….
“We have demanded from President Obama that he sign an executive order creating a John Hope Franklin commission for reparatory justice.”
“We have requested of Congressman John Conyers, the dean of the Congressional Black Caucus, and champion legislatively for reparations, that he revise HR 40 to update it so that it is no longer talking about studying but about actions that we need to take now.”
“And we have created a preliminary 10 point reparations program that deals with all the issues from healthcare, from an apology, to land, and this program is available for all of you to view at IBW21.org
We will be traveling all across this country from Houston to Los Angeles, to Chicago having hearings so that you can have input on this reparations program. So we conclude this program by saying: in the name of our ancestors, in the name of our ancestors, our ancestors we say join the fight for reparations. We declare that it must be what? Reparations Now, Reparations Now, Reparations Now! …. or else (as a few of them chimed).”

One sign reads: “our economic unity is the key to our justice demands”.

Rev Jeremiah Wright chimed in with an anti-Israel (“Palestinian Justice”) message. “Please remember Jesus was a Palestinian”.
“The youth in Ferguson and the youth in Palestine have united to remind us that the dots need to be connected.”
What did Dr King [say]? “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere” has implications for us as we stand beside our Palestinian brothers and sisters who have been done one of the most egregious injustices in the 20th and 21st centuries.”
He went on to say “boycott, divestment, and sanction(BDS) is how we fought apartheid non-violently” in South Africa.
Obama’s ex-pastor: Israel is apartheid state, ‘Jesus was a Palestinian’
At an hours-long event Saturday on the National Mall titled “Justice or Else,” Wright said that African-Americans, Native Americans and Palestinians have suffered under the “three-headed demon” of “racism, militarism and capitalism.”
“The same issue is being fought today and has been fought since 1948, and historians are carried back to the 19th century … when the original people, the Palestinians — and please remember, Jesus was a Palestinian — the Palestinian people have had the Europeans come and take their country,” Wright said, The Hill reported.
Rev. Wright said they’re fighting a three-headed demon: racism, militarism and capitalism and credited Dr. Martin Luther King with that definition.
They quoted and used Boukman Dutty’s prayer from the Haiti revolution.
“The god who created the earth; who created the sun that gives us light.The god who holds up the ocean; who makes the thunder roar. Our God who has ears to hear. You who are hidden in the clouds; who watch us from where you are. You see all that the white has made us suffer. The white man’s god asks him to commit crimes. But the god within us wants to do good. Our god, who is so good, so just, He orders us to revenge our wrongs. It’s He who will direct our arms and bring us the victory. It’s He who will assist us. We all should throw away the image of the white men’s god who is so pitiless. Listen to the voice for liberty that sings in all our hearts.”
One speaker defined Ferguson as the “or else”
Louis Farrakhan had a long side-winder speech, ending with a call to boycott Christmas spending. (I guess divestment and sanctions to follow) He wants to take over the public education system. He drew parallels of blacks to native Americans, Mexicans, immigrants, and Haitians. Wright had already nailed down the Palestinian and African connections.
Louis Farrakhan calls for ten thousand fearless men, ten thousand women. He wants to invest in buying land. He’s asking government for a hundred million acres of land for a start — or about the size of California.
