Farrakhan: I know what to say to modern pharaoh
CHICAGO (FinalCall.com)—Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan delivered passionate and insightful answers during an interview with popular afternoon radio host Cliff Kelley on the city’s Black talk radio station. Min. Farrakhan covered an array of topics in the dialogue with the show host and in questions phoned in from listeners.
He covered America’s crisis and challenges the administration of President Donald Trump faces, what any possible meetings with the president might look like, the future for Black people in the United States and the final war America will face prior to her prophesized doom.
“First, I don’t know anything about an invitation to speak with Mr. Trump. I do know that in the Holy Qur’an, as well as in the Bible, God gives a directive both to Moses and Aaron. And he says to the both of them, ‘Go you both to Pharaoh. I have given you both an authority,’ ” said the Minister in response to a question from a caller. Talk of such a meeting surfaced a week earlier when Omarosa Manigault, a White House aide and Black woman, told WVON-AM morning show hosts she would be open to meeting with Min. Farrakhan. She was responding to a question from a show host.
“I think that any in your audience would know that I have never shied away from having an open and, I believe, a good relationship with Louis Farrakhan and so I would look forward to receiving that invitation and sitting down with him,” Omarosa said May 4. In the conversation, Omarosa shared her priority issues—education, economics, crime reduction and increased job opportunities—for the administration. But, she stressed, Black leaders must come to the table and dialogue with the president and advocate for what they want. Traditional civil rights leaders, she said, have been unwilling to sit-down and talk but offer criticism from afar. Outside of representatives of the Congressional Black Caucus, few Black leaders have called or requested a meeting with me or the president, said the Howard University graduate. It’s not a good strategy to be absent from the table for four years, she said.
“My history reflects that I have marched, walked, advocated and fought, even before I got into this office, for the rights of those who don’t have a voice and for those who can’t fight for themselves. I have a spiritual obligation to fight for those who Christ described as the least of these,” said the Trump White House representative, who is also an ordained minister.
As usual the Anti-Defamation League attacked and blasted the Trump aide for any words of respect or regard for the Minister.
“Yes, I am. I am so proud of that sister, Omarosa,” said Min. Farrakhan May 9 on the Cliff Kelley Show. “Well, if Ms. Omarosa is the door to Trump, well I kind of like that door. That’s a pretty door. That’s an intelligent door. That’s a spiritually rooted door. So whenever Mr. Trump is ready to hear what I have to say, he must know that when I speak I’m not just speaking for Louis Farrakhan and a few Negroes. You have to know who I represent. I represent God, Allah, who came in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, the Great Mahdi. And I represent his Messenger-Messiah, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. I don’t need to say anymore. Just who I represent should let you know that you are going to have to hear from me sooner or later.”
“And if you notice the way I speak, I don’t speak like somebody that doesn’t have authority to say what I’m saying. You don’t need to send people to talk to Mr. Trump who don’t know what time it is. But if there should come a time that I would talk to the modern Pharaoh, I know exactly what to ask for and I’m not asking for Negro tidbits. I’m asking for what God wants: Land of our own and a good send off after we’ve given you 400 years of our sweat, blood and tears and received in return some of the worst treatment ever afforded to a human being,” said Min. Farrakhan.
