BY MESSENGER ELIJAH MUHAMMAD: “The Fall of America”
Is Modern America as Merciless as Ancient Ninevah
America answers this prophecy of the ruins of ancient Ninevah. Ninevah was full of lies and robbery; so is America. “The prey departeth not.” The poor so-called Negroes in America are the prey and they refuse to depart from America regardless of the evil treatment they receive. Though the whips and the clubs of their enemy are heard night and day upon the heads and backs of the prey (so-called Negroes), they still do not desire to depart from America.
Ancient Ninevah, according to her history, was full of chariots that made much noise and the prancing horses carrying the chariots in full speed that the prophets described them as “jumping chariots.” So it is in America today: her cities are filled with automobiles and the noise of them is heard every hour of the day, rattling past our doors.
She is full of blood from murdered people. She also fills another prophecy made in Habakkuk 2:12: “Woe to him that buildeth a town with blood, and stablisheth a city by iniquity!”
America was founded and built with blood and established by iniquity. She killed the aboriginal inhabitants (Indians) to establish herself as an independent people at the great loss of lives of the original owners. Her great progress has been made by the work of iniquity. She has robbed many people; and the blood of her slaves, the so-called Negroes, has stained the earth here and elsewhere, stained by her hands.
The lawless people kill their own leaders and assassinate their rulers. Anyone who opens his mouth for justice for the poor prey (so-called Negroes) is seized, prosecuted, and in many cases slain because he dared open his mouth for the oppressed against the oppressors.
Woe to America! She has established a government with blood. The murderers seek to kill the innocent all the day long. Regardless of the people’s choice of a ruler, if chosen, he should be obeyed and given a chance to serve the people until that people dispossesses him for another.
It is very evil, very shameful and savage in these enlightened days of education and science for America to be charged with killing her rulers and great men of wisdom and science without due process of law.
There is no justice for us, the so-called Negroes, in a government whose citizens are free to kill until satisfied and then turn upon their rulers and slay them. What chance have we under the rule of such people? We live under the very shadow of death all the day long.
The assassinated President Abraham Lincoln, by John W. Booth in Washington, D.C., April 14, 1865 — who died April 15, 1865 — was successful in freeing our parents from servitude slavery; to weaken the slave master’s strength against the Federal Government. For this he paid with his life.
President James A. Garfield, assassinated by Charles J. Guiteau, July 2, 1881, in Washington, D.C. and died September 19, 1881. President William McKinley, shot September 6, 1901, Buffalo, new York, by Leon Czolgosy, and died September 14, 1901. President John F. Kennedy, assassinated November 22, 1963, in Dallas, Texas, by the accused assassin Lee Harvey Oswald, and died minutes later. All four of these presidents were known to have spoken and acted sympathetically towards the so-called Negroes, and they paid with their lives for doing so.
There are others who had attempts made upon their lives. Mr. Huey P. Long, U.S. Senator of Louisiana, was shot September 18, 1935, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, by Dr. Carl A. Weiss, and died September 19, 1935. Mr. Long preached “share the wealth.” And for this he paid with his life.
There is no justice for the poor, the so-called Negroes in America as long as they are subjects under the American flag. A great attempt is now being made on the poor, lost found, so called Negroes to deceive them by making false friendship, and the passage of Civil Rights bills, and forcing themselves to accept the lost-found (so-called Negroes) into their social equality.
This is only a trap for us. To accept it will make us enemies of God and our Black people of Africa and Asia who are our true friends. It would be totally ignorant on our part to be swept away to our doom by accepting these maelstrom promises of social equality temptations. Our ignorant masses cannot be trusted under the charms (temptation) of un-alike. But in the end you will regret your actions.
If America wants to offer us a better side of her, why not offer something of permanent good, such as a portion of the country (a few states) for our ever-increasing population? Will the white man fool himself in continuously making promises to us that he knows he cannot fulfill? He has his own problems of unemployment, with the ever-increasing unemployed of his own kind fleeing from Asia and Africa, plus the loss of foreign trade.
Can we hope for him to care for us and our children forever? No! We need a place on this earth that we can call our own, and go to work and produce our own needs; and this will provide us with employment for our unemployed. Let no man deceive you; we are face to face with a change of worlds.Click here for reuse options!
