It has been almost 60 years since the death of our brother, Malcolm X, and people are still accusing The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan of his murder. Some people have even gone as far to say that it is the reason why they will not work with or join with The Nation of Islam.
Now, please keep in mind that there is no statute of limitations on murder. Meaning, if The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan was as guilty as the critics say, and if there was any evidence against him, he could be apprehended at any time. But, unfortunately, that isn’t enough to convince the critics from thinking that The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan was involved in some way.
The next false claim to justify why they, the detractors, believe The Minister hasn’t been apprehended is — “he works for the government.” Why would the U. S. Government work so hard to silence a Black leader that they have on pay roll? Now, this doesn’t make sense, however, this is the belief of various folks within the Black community. Such beliefs have emerged as a result of the wicked agenda to stop the resurrection and rise of the Black community. The goal is to portray a loving man of God-Minister Farrakhan, who has an insurmountable love for black people, appear as an enemy to black people.
The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan has stood boldly in defense of his teacher, The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad when nobody else did. Malcolm X used the media to slander his teacher, The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, The Exalted Christ. No other student stood as strong in defense of The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad after 1975 as did the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. And in 1992, when Spike Lee produced the movie Malcolm X, many within the Black community took at face value the entire movie and believed that everything they watched in the movie actually happened in real life. And some became harsh critics of the Nation of Islam.
Now, the Minister has expressed on many occasions his love for Malcolm X; Malcolm was his first teacher inside the Nation of Islam. He and Malcolm had a close bond as brothers spending time at each other’s homes, sharing meals together and praying together. Most of these critics who try to blame the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan for the assassination of Malcolm X usually come with the same regurgitated, non-factual, pseudo-arguments to fit their ridiculous claims. And the Nation of Islam has always rebutted these false claims with the truth contained within historical documentation, empirical evidence, and the use of a logical analysis. As stated earlier, we know The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan is innocent because if he was not, he would have been apprehended years ago. This is easily understood when we consider the fact that Minister Louis Farrakhan is hated by the United States government. If they believed that Minister Farrakhan could be implicated in or held responsible for the assassination of Malcolm X, they would stop at nothing in order to imprison him.
We’ve seen proof of this because the United States Senate has censured Minister Farrakhan. There is even legislation that has his name on it that seeks bi-partisan support to condemn him. Any Black person who has aspired to a position of prominence within the government, and throughout public life in America, will have the experience of being harassed, compelled and ultimately threatened if they have a positive relationship with Minister Farrakhan. Even the 44th President, Barack Obama, was a victim of this wicked litmus test, that is always the used against black people who desire to be successful in the eyes of White America. Our beautiful, warrior sister and leader of the Women’s March Movement, Tamika Mallory, has been ridiculed and scorned by the media due to her affiliation with The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, as well. These are small examples of how The Minister is hated by White America, so it’s obvious that if The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan was guilty of the murder of Malcolm X, his enemies would lose no sleep in arresting him on sight! However, this is not the case because The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan is innocent!
Has the Black community forgotten? It was J Edgar Hoover along with the FBI who conspired to kill the heroes of the Black movement. This same government is also responsible for the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr, Fred Hampton, and other heroes of the struggle for liberation. Look within the FBI files and see how much information the FBI has gathered on Malcolm X, Elijah Muhammad and the Nation of Islam. Thousands of pages of documents exist just on the life and work of Brother Malcolm. This is the reason why the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan stood up in 1995 and demanded that the government release all of the files on Malcolm X, The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad and the Nation of Islam! Here are his words on that day:
“So let us open the files up! Lying demons! You know that Farrakhan had nothing to do with the murder of Brother Malcolm X! (The whole stadium INCLUDING Betty Shabazz stands up and applauds)”- The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and Betty Shabazz, A New Beginning, May 6, 1995.
This is very important. Would a man guilty of murder make such a request? Why would he petition the most sophisticated government in the world to open up files on a murder he committed or was in any way involved in? Now our enemies may say “Well, he is doing this to throw the guilt off of himself. He is bluffing.” How foolish of you to think so! When the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan told the world he was taking a million Black Men to Washington D.C, was that a bluff? Or was his word bond? When The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan declared to the world that the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad was physically alive, was he bluffing or was he serious? When The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan declared to the F.O.I during his first F.O.I class as a registered member of the Nation of Islam these words in 1955 “I am going to take this teaching to every nook and cranny, or corner, of the United States of America.” Was that bluffing or was he serious? Look at how The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan is received today all over the world! The results speak for themselves!
Our beloved Minister is not a murderer and He is not guilty of the assassination of Malcolm X! In fact, the actual trigger man, Thomas Hagan, during an interview with Mike Wallace, said he did kill Malcolm X and he said no other member of the Nation of Islam was present that fateful day Malcolm was killed. At the trial, the name of The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan never came up! So, how is he guilty of such a crime when the actual trigger man, himself, didn’t even point him out? These wicked lies and false accusations have spread like wildfire. The proof is available for the public to see. The character of The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan is impeccable.
You can usually get a good sense of when someone is telling a lie and trying to hide the truth. Telling lies is hard; because it is difficult to remember today the lies you that you told yesterday. The lying person has to always keep track of the lies that they tell so that the truth can remain hidden. I urge those of you who are reading this to really listen to The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. Pay attention when He speaks about our brother Malcolm X and then compare it to the other times he mentioned our brother. Whether it be about how Malcolm brought the Minister up in the Nation or how it was their last meeting together — The Minister’s story stays the same! He has never lied! He is a truth teller!
To all of those who love Brother Malcolm, let us not make the mistakes of the past. Minister Farrakhan has sacrificed his entire life for the liberation and salvation of our people and we will allow let the lies against him continue without a response. If you truly love Brother Malcolm and what he stood for, you should likewise love and respect the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan.
