SOTG 221 - Enemies Among Us Rise Up and Kill says Farrakhan

(Photo Source:

One of the leading voices of the Religion of Peace and Brotherhood, Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam, called for his followers to “rise up and kill.” We will play the audio of his recent speech and let you decide for yourself whether or not Farrakhan and his followers are a threat to the people of the USA. Listen closely and determine for yourself just who Farrakhan wants to be killed.

Soldiers in uniform have been shot at again, this time close to home in Mississippi. Paul gives insight as to the composition of Camp Shelby. Once again we are faced with the question of why the Department of Defense desires to keep our troops disarmed and helpless in the United States?



Camp Shelby was in a heightened state of alert after authorities said a man matching the description of Tuesday’s shooter fired shots near the military post again Wednesday.

Soldiers training at the Camp Shelby Joint Forces Training Center reported shots fired at around 8 a.m. CT in the vicinity of Peret Tower Road and Mississippi 29 in Perry County. It about 15 miles southeast of the post.

A man was pulled over and detained for questioning at about 12:15 p.m., WDAM-TV, Hattiesburg reported. As police searched the area for the shooter, a maroon truck passed them, a shot was heard and police began a pursuit. The suspect claimed he had no gun and that his truck backfired.

Authorities also questioned two men in connection with Tuesday’s shooting, but they were later released without being charged, according to the Perry County Sheriff’s Office.

Shooter who fired at soldiers in Mississippi still at large

“The soldiers at Camp Shelby and across the state can and should take appropriate steps to defend themselves as necessary,” Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant said in a statement. “This is one of the reasons I recently signed an executive order directing certain National Guard personnel to be armed.”

After four Marines and a sailor were killed last month in Chattanooga, Tenn., tensions are high about possible terrorist attacks on U.S. military targets.

The shooter is a white male in a red or maroon pickup truck, make and model unknown, said Lt. Col. Christian Patterson, director of public affairs for the Mississippi National Guard. No injuries were reported in either incident.

“We’re making sure soldiers are aware of what’s going on so they can take the proper precautionary measures,” he said.

The base is in the middle of a training exercise that involves the 155th Armored Brigade combat team and other National Guard and Army Reserve units. More than 4,600 soldiers are involved in the training, Patterson said.

The military base south of Hattiesburg and about 100 miles southeast of Jackson, Miss., is more than 200 square miles in size and serves as a training center for troops year-round.


Breitbart News previously reported reports of shot fired at officers at Camp Shelby in Mississippi. WDAM in Hattiesburg now reports that a truck matching the alleged getaway vehicle has been found and two white individuals questioned, both of whom were released afterward.

According to WDAM, the Mississippi Highway Patrol is back on the hunt. They are searching for “two white males driving a Red Ford Ranger.”

The report of shots fired came about 12:10 pm. “Perry County Sheriff Jimmy Dale Smith said that there were no injuries reported.”

“Members of the Forrest County Sheriff’s Department and the U.S. Forestry Commission [are assisting] in the search.”

Anyone with information on the shooting or the suspects is being asked to call Perry County authorities at 601-964-8461.

The alleged August 4 attack comes just over two weeks after the July 16 attack in which Mohammad Abdulazeez allegedly opened fire on two military offices in Chattanooga, killing four Marines and one Sailor.

Camp Shelby has been around since World War I. It “is the largest state-owned and operate field training site in the U.S. More than 100,000 troops from all branches of the U.S. military train at the facility, including reserve and active Army troops, Navy, Marines and Air Force.


The Michigan Army National Guard post in Wyoming held active shooter training on Tuesday.

Guardsmen and full-time civilian employees received guidelines on how to respond in an active shooter situation, rather than a specific step-by-step process. The main lesson was not to run, but instead to fight back.

The annual training was not scheduled in response to the recent attack on a military support center in Chattanooga, Tennessee that left four Marines and a sailor dead. However, that attack was mentioned as an example of why the training focuses on fighting back.

“I see it as vital,” said Michigan National Guard Sgt. Scott Watkins. “If you look at the world view, the world threat that is out there, and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that we have enemy in our own backyard. And we look at the incidences like in Tennessee in last month and trace it back and now you wear this uniform every day and you are a target.”

Following the Chattanooga attack, Michigan updated its rules, allowing guardsmen with concealed carry permits to carry guns while in uniform.


Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan called late last month for black Americans to “rise up” and “kill those who kill us” if the federal government fails to “intercede in our affairs.”

The call for violence came during a July 30 speech the radical leader delivered at Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Miami.

“The Koran teaches persecution is worse than slaughter. Then it says, retaliation is prescribed in matters of the slain. Retaliation is a prescription from God to calm the breaths of those whose children have been slain,” Farrakhan said.

“So if the federal government will not intercede in our affairs, then we must rise up and kill those who kill us. Stalk them and kill them and let them feel the pain of death that we are feeling,” he added.

Video of the excerpt was posted on Farrakhan’s Facebook page Monday with the hashtag “#JusticeOrElse.”

Farrakhan is scheduled to speak next month in Washington, D.C., during a demonstration organized in commemoration of the 20th anniversary of his 1995 million man march.
