|Hiding the truth: The media’s campaign against Farrakhan
The theme of the last four articles continues here, by way of a significant truth about, and of, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, which bears directly on our efforts to attain our fullest self-development.
On the 9th of October, Minister Farrakhan held a press conference at the Sheraton Hotel, in New York City. He had just ended a seven nation eight-day trip in Africa. Direct from a 17-hour airplane trip from South Africa, he entered the room where he met the press.
The Black media was represented by: The New York Amsterdam News, The Daily Challenge, The London Press, The Muslim Journal, the Caribbean Life, and The Final Call.
What is called the “mainstream” press was represented by The Associated Press, CNN, The Daily News, The New York Post, Newsday, The New York Times, NY 1 News-TV, WCBS-TV, WNBC News-TV, WWOR-TV, WB11-TV.
It’s now the 13th of October. The “mainstream” media have hardly mentioned this event. It was an event of national significance that was kept from the nation.
This reflects the “establishment” press coverage of Minister Farrakhan’s activities, since 1984, which has mostly been characterized by repeated lies, half-truths and mockery. They have portrayed him as an inferior, who is trying to become legitimate by entering what they call the “mainstream” of American life.
The fact is that Minister Farrakhan’s example and teachings could reverse the filthy mainstream of this country’s life, if accepted.
Why did America’s media produce a near “black”- or “white”-out of his October the 9th press conference? Did they ever have any intention of reporting what he might say, unless they could hurt the Million Family March?
Some media persons who have covered Minister Farrakhan’s speeches and press conferences, later indicated that they were favorably impressed with the Minister’s sincerity and honesty, and overall integrity. They were moved by the enlightening power of the truth that he speaks, and by his reasoned approach to the problems of America.
They know of the distortions, half-truths, and the out-right lies which their news organizations have reported to the American public about Minister Farrakhan.
Despite gross misrepresentations about himself, Minister Farrakhan is rising above it. Among the factors, in his rise, are the increasing numbers of people who have seen and heard him for themselves.
Of course, there are those who have attended events involving Minister Farrakhan, whose hearts were unjustifiably set against him before they ever saw him. Unjustifiably, their hatred has grown. This is especially true of members—not all—of the ruling class of this world.
Who really owns America’s media? For an answer to this, see the following web address given below.
Whose force backing Minister Farrakhan are these powerful owners really trying to overcome in their war against him? Why is the real truth of and from Minister Farrakhan, in their terms, “above top secret?”
In Rule by Secrecy, Mr. Jim Marrs wrote: “Author Perloff warned from a Christian perspective that a monumental battle is shaping up between the Kingdom of Christ and ‘an evil, one-world government: the kingdom of the Antichrist … . Many notables of the American Establishment have given themselves over to one side in this conflict, and it is not the side the ancient scriptures recommend … . Whether or not they are conspirators, whether they are conscious or not of the ultimate consequences of their actions, their powerful influence has helped move the world to apocalyptic events.’ “
The fourth chapter of the book of Revelation has material in it that corresponds with the meeting the Honorable Elijah Muhammad had with his Teacher, at some point not long after February 25, 1975. At the appropriate time he received the scroll or book from the right hand of Him Who sat upon the throne, as described in that chapter.
Verse one of the sixth chapter of Revelation says that the “Lamb,” then opened the first of the seven seals of this scroll or book. His work with that little book, or scroll, is described throughout the rest of Revelation.
Superimpose, or place the events of the book of Revelation over the events of the book of Acts. Christ is the dominant person in Revelation, who brings in God’s new world. Paul is the dominant person in Acts, in the formation of the early church. Christ is guiding the modern Paul. He has also nearly completed repeating portions of the steps contained in the Gospels, which his teacher took.
What was written in those books was intended for these times. The events of both books have led up to the events of the present time.
Earlier today I visited The Tape Connection, here in Washington, D.C. A videotaped speech of Minister Farrakhan was playing. He called it, “What is the Meaning of Life and Death?” He delivered it on July 23, 1994, at the Charlotte Convention Center, in Charlotte, North Carolina. Since we are now confronted with “life and death” as described in the 28th chapter of Deuteronomy, get it.
In connection with this, Mr. Perloff observed, “a monumental battle is shaping up between the Kingdom of Christ and … the kingdom of the Antichrist.” The sixth chapter of Revelation speaks of the rulers, who own practically everything here, and elsewhere, and their prime supporters. It shows part of their future, if they persist in warring against Christ.
The 15th verse reads: “Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty … hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains. They called to the mountains and the rocks, ‘Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him Who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?’ “
What caused Their wrath to be poured down on “the mighty?” Read the verses that lead up to verse 15. It’s condensed. Then read the rest of Revelation, or elsewhere in the scriptures, where the same material is expanded.
God’s warning, in the Bible, to those who hate Minister Farrakhan is “Touch not my anointed, do My prophets no harm.”
Minister Farrakhan is not a prophet. He is anointed of God. Be careful how you handle him. You wiser ones ought to school the others.
Some Jews seem to have “lost it,” according to their public words against Minister Farrakhan. If a person’s heart is filled with evil, that person cannot come to peaceful terms with another, regardless to what that other does to pacify, appease, placate, mollify, propitiate or conciliate the other.
The way certain Jews have treated Jessie Jackson and others, who apologized to them, after offending them, is an indication of what they would do to Minister Farrakhan were he to bow to their insulting, unfair, unjust, demeaning demands.
Can you blow out the light of the sun with your mouths? That tells you what chances are of forcing Minister Farrakhan to bow to your evil will.
There are Black writers, such as Pulitzer Prize-winning syndicated columnist Mr. Clarence Page, who seems to be an otherwise intelligent and fair-minded person, except when it comes to Minster Farrakhan.
After repeating evil statements Minister Farrakhan never made and others totallytaken out of context, Mr. Page later states in his October 11th column, that “I want to be fair to Farrakhan.”
Mr. Page, and other Blacks like him, suffers from the same inability as people like Mr. Abraham Foxman, of the ADL. Minister Farrakhan is an example of brand new phenomena. He represents a brand new reality whom you have never dealt with before: a truly free Blackman, a world leader, who is guided by God Himself. He is also one of the most loving human beings God ever created.
And, if you ever really take the time to learn Minister Farrakhan you will find that his loving heart is the core instrument God is using to produce the Million Family March and all that it implies.
That by which you may best learn how to relate to him, is the very instrument that you reject. It’s the scriptures. It’s God’s words.
Mr. Page, you can expect a letter from me about your unfair treatment of our innocent Brother, Minister Farrakhan.
Now, the following words are respectfully directed, especially to Jewish scholars, a few of whom may read these words.
What I intend to state is in the Torah; the Talmud; the 10th and the 40th surahs of the Holy Qur’an. It’s in certain words Jesus spoke at the last supper, and it’s in Minister Farrakhan’s “death-bed confession” made last year. And it’s elsewhere. It all bears witness that he is one of the most trustworthy human beings you will ever meet.
Those running for the highest offices of this land owe it to themselves to really get to know him. But do it through unfiltered means; not the ADL’s fabricated and filthy dossier on him.
Although Jews don’t see Jesus of 2,000 years ago as the Messiah, and for excellent reasons, Jewish scholars are yet aware of the following from the Gospel of John 13: 34,35.
Jesus said “Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” (NIV)
What was new about this commandment? What made this kind of love new? Where is this new love to be found? What is its root? Do Jewish scholars expect this commandment to be taught by the Messiah when he arrives?
