WASHINGTON (Source: FinalCall.com)—For 62 years now, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan has run the dangerous course, angering the wicked rulers of this country and the world by faithfully representing the message of salvation and deliverance meant for the downtrodden and dispossessed Black men and women in the United States.
He has championed and been the top representative and vicegerent of his leader, teacher and guide, the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad. When many critics, detractors and even former students turned away from the wisdom, guidance and teaching of the Nation of Islam patriarch, Min. Farrakhan endured and rebuilt his father’s house. Min. Farrakhan, like his father, has faced and endured hardship and betrayal and had former allies turn their backs on him.
But for 40 years now, the Minister has had an unshakeable ally—the Rev. Willie Wilson, pastor of Union Temple Baptist Church, one of the pillars of liberation theology in the Nation’s capital. Since 1977, when Rev. Wilson first opened his pulpit to Minister Farrakhan—losing half of his congregation who walked out in protest—the two men have marched in lockstep, preaching, executing the Million Man March and four anniversary commemorations.
Is Minister Farrakhan a misogynist? Why would anyone charge him with being misogynistic?
Here’s his response.
Social media was already buzzing when the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan stated he would like to return to The Breakfast Club show during his message at Tennessee State University back in April.
Based upon the trending storm he caused during the first sit down with Charlamagne The God, DJ Envy and Angela Yee, nobody expected anything less from the divinely guided and vibrant National Representative of The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad.
The morning of the interview’s airing, the digital force of the Nation of Islam known as the #FarrakhanTwitterArmy, continued its truth trafficking efforts by live tweeting the radio broadcasted conversation between Minister Farrakhan and the hosts. Charlamagne, DJ Envy and Angele also retweeted comments from listeners.
Every aspect created intense dialogue on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram as the hashtags #TheBreakfastClub and #Farrakhan became top trending topics on Twitter. In unprecedented fashion, Minister Farrakhan’s name trended number one on Facebook for over forty-eight consecutive hours.
Many who were hearing Minister Farrakhan for the first time tweeted their admiration for his strong stance on various hot button issues from the political campaign to the dress attire of women. Others started connecting Minister Farrakhan’s warning about the weather to the latest calamities striking the nation.
The on-going after shock
Since entering the social media realm over five years ago, Minister Farrakhan’s presence cannot be overlooked. His words, images and videos have become a daily staple across social media platforms, even amongst celebrities and athletes who have millions of followers. How dangerous is this?
The full video of The Breakfast Club interview had been viewed nearly 700,000 times combined on the YouTube channels for Power 105.1 and The Breakfast Club. However, strangely, the original YouTube link (which had nearly 500,000 views) posted by the show was removed. Shorter clips posted on their Facebook fan pages have generated over two million views, which includes over one million views alone of a clip regarding his words on George Zimmerman. On Minister Farrakhan’s Facebook fan page, just three short clips generated over a half a million views. Not to mention the other clips being posted and discussed on Instagram, Twitter and Vine. To those who do not care much for social media or do not care to understand it, these numbers may not mean much. However, those who are in the digital trenches know the significance of this and more.
On the offense and defense
On The Breakfast Club, Minister Farrakhan pointed out one of the key aspects that caused an estimated 800,000 to 1.5 million people to attend the Justice Or Else gathering in Washington, D.C. despite no mainstream media coverage. “The media that really helped us was social media and programs like yours,” he said.
The way The Nation of Islam utilizes social media has been a means by which Minister Farrakhan broke out of prison; a prison without bars that has been made for him by Zionist-controlled mainstream media and his enemies, because he dares to speak truth. They have muddied his image for years, making him to appear anti- everything in the book, yet his social media postings and twitter army are giving people, especially the young, an opportunity to see and hear him for themselves.
No longer are people just allowed to write something online without getting a rapid response from the #FarrakhanTwitterArmy. Baltimore activist Kwame Rose had to learn the hard way after writing a column for Abernathy magazine titled, “On Louis Farrakhan and Rape”. He made a shallow attempt to take Minister Farrakhan’s words from The Breakfast Club out of context and charge him with victim blaming and giving men “a pass” when it comes to rape. Immediately, articles of defense of Minister Farrakhan by Anisah Muhammad (Montgomery), Fudia Muhammad (Austin), Shareefah Muhammad (Houston) and LaShonda Muhammad (Atlanta) went viral. A YouTube video response from Student Minister Robert Muhammad of Austin started spreading and then a 2-hr live Twitter chat was hosted by Ebony S. Muhammad (Houston) on June 2 as sisters in the Nation of Islam further defended Minister Farrakhan’s stance on women against Mr. Rose’s attacks. In the midst of it happening the same night as Game 1 of the NBA Finals, the chat’s hashtag #CoveredGirl was a top trending topic along with #Farrakhan.

On The Breakfast Club, Minister Farrakhan warned, “After this broadcast, the weather will intensify.”
Have you been paying attention to the weather since? Will Sanders, Clinton or Trump take heed to this warning?
After reading your article on Abernathy Magazine’s website I felt compelled to write this piece to inform and debunk the improper view of how the Minister’s words were expressed in your writing. While your point of view is appreciated, it just shows that we women in the Nation of Islam (MGT) have more work to do to shed light and truth on ideas such as yours that pervade the mindsets of some of our people. I thank Allah (God) for using you in this way to open up more dialogue on this topic.
A little background about myself, I am a member of the Nation of Islam in the women’s class, the MGT and GCC (Muslim Girls Training and General Civilization). As a young woman who did not escape the occurrences of childhood molestation, I grew up suffering from a serious complex of understanding my self-worth. It was not until I joined the Nation of Islam and came into the understanding of my value AND that we as women are the second self of God that I was able to rise above the mentality I carried that was weighing me down.
In addressing the beginning of your article it must be understood that it is not the responsibility of Min Farrakhan’s views to reflect the masses of Black people; it is Min Farrakhan’s responsibility to reflect the Views of God. So, if the masses’ view has shifted away from God, then what should the masses expect but the sick society that we are witnessing today.
You said that Min. Farrakhan, “suggest that the way to stop sexual predators is not by telling men not to rape, but to tell young women to cover up because a man is supposed to be sexually attracted to you.” Your ‘spin’ or ‘interpretation’ of his words are not a reflection of what is a part of the Teachings of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad as taught under the leadership of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan.
Yes, we are taught who we are, our true value in the sight of God and to understand our nature as well as that of man. It is because of this understanding that we as women who are being civilized in the Lifestyle of God choose to live the life of modest women.
You are right that the way a woman dresses is not an invitation to be raped (Min Farrakhan also agreed on The Breakfast Club Interview), yet you neglect to acknowledge that the type of world that we live in is filled with sick minded individuals. The Hon. Min. Louis Farrakhan teaches us that everything of value is covered and protected. To be God’s most valuable treasure, we too should be covered, in a modest and beautiful way. When we as women cover, it affects the psyche of the environment we are in; this is why it is called our protection.
Our disrespect for the nature of the male and female is one reason we are in the condition we are in today. Regardless to whether or not one believes in God, there are certain laws (such as gravity) that we all must follow in order to continue living. God has designed us (male and female) to be attracted to one another which aids in the continuance of our species. So yes, our form or adornments should be covered so as not to attract unwanted or inappropriate responses at the wrong time. A woman who comes into the knowledge of herself understands that she has a right to choose to dress as she pleases but BECA– — USE she is now embarking on a path of civility and has the correct view of herself, she chooses the modest approach.
In no way does Minister Farrakhan excuse such behavior (rape and abuse) of men towards women for he teaches us that men who commit such acts are worthy of death (he said that on the interview as well) yet it is because of the pathetic condition we are in due to PTSD (Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome) that we are granted the Grace of Allah (God). Men should be taught more than just that a woman’s body belongs to her; they too should also be given and taught the knowledge of themselves that they may better respect themselves and the women in their community. If they understand this, then ‘controlling themselves’ would become second nature. But then they too because of their heightened level of respect and civility would cause them to ask sisters to cover as well! (smile)
Minister Farrakhan’s comments don’t promote violence. If anything based off of what he teaches us as women it promotes self-defense. For example, in the interview Charlamagne made the comment that if a rapist wants to rape a woman, he would rape her regardless of what she is wearing. So if the first line of defense of modest dress doesn’t work then this is where our training as soldiers is activated and we defend ourselves and our virtue even if it means taking our assailant’s life because the virtue of any woman is invaluable. Remember, civilizations have been raised and destroyed through our women, that is why we are considered the ‘booty’, a treasure or prize.
Your closing statement that the Nation of Islam is undermining our teaching that says , “A Nation Can Rise No Higher Than its Woman”, is very well misplaced. If you have not had a chance I implore you to purchase and view a lecture Min. Farrakhan did last year titled Save Our Girls, where the program demonstrated that a woman’s gifts and talents can reach unlimited heights. Many different professions of women were displayed and they were all in beautiful, modest attire. So the question really is, what is your definition of ‘beauty’ and ‘independence’? If it is something that doesn’t involve God in the equation then it is something I can respectfully say we don’t want.
Thank you for taking the time to read these few words. I pray they helped to shed some depth as to why a man such as Minister Farrakhan loves us so much.

The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan took to Facebook on May 30 to deliver a word of warning to Whites using social media calling for his arrest and hoping for his death. The following message was posted:
The increase on Facebook and other social media platforms of the hope of many White people that Farrakhan would be arrested or killed is angering the God more and that increases the severity of the calamities that He is bringing. Be careful of what you pray would come to me because you may be praying for that for yourself and your family.~The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan (5/30/2016)
The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan preached on leadership at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Winston-Salem on May 22. His message was inspired by this young man who read a poem in honor of The Minister titled “What is a Leader?” Minister Farrakhan embraced him and told him he prays that the young man grows up to be the leader that he described in the poem.
