Glorifying Violence and The True Reality
Blog Post 31
June 6, 2020
The US of A is looted land, built upon murdered Native Peoples, built by looted, maimed and murdered Black people, run and ruined by white supremacist racist looter-murderer psychopaths. That is the true reality.
Whoever doesn’t believe that, doesn’t know anything about Amerikkkan history.
What they probably believe is the great lie that some white people in Europe couldn’t worship God the way they wanted and were being persecuted so they got on some ships and sailed off to the “new world,” the “promised land,” where they could be “free,” and they had some difficulties at first, but the friendly “Indians” helped them out and they had a war of “independence” against great Britain and won!
To get the true reality, you’ve got to get your facts and emotions from the oppressed, not from the oppressors. What oppressor do you know, what bully do you know, what looter and murderer do you know, what psychopath do you know who tells the truth?
Derek Chauvin, not unlike so many, perhaps the majority, of police, national guard and military, is a white supremacist racist cold-blooded murderer, who posed with his handcuffed victim, George Floyd, on memorial day, May 25, 2020, on a street in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with his left knee smashed into the his neck, his left hand in his pocket to apply more force on that knee and that neck, his sunglasses atop his head so we can look dead into his satanic lifeless eyes and know that he’s achieved the ultimate, the satanic ritual, the longed for trophy of killing with his own hands a Black American man.
Anybody who’s not white fully well knows that the cops are racist pigs. They’ve known that since the slave-catcher days. They’ve known that since they’ve walked or driven or run or stood or sat where a cop is. Those “protect and serve” racist cops hate Black people and other people of colour and anyone not white, and they’ve made it their duty to serve and protect white people and keep the others in their place, separate, in the gutter or dead. Check out where the racist cops have been getting their training in the Amnesty International article, With Whom are Many US Police Departments Training? With a Chronic Human Rights Violator - Israel @ https://www.amnestyusa.org/with-whom-are-many-u-s-police-departments-training-with-a-chronic-human-rights-violator-israel/.
These racist cops have been propped up, supported, financed and praised by the US government at all levels from the beginning. And even if you don’t know or can’t read or are too lazy to find out, you should realize the true reality of that from the president’s tweets and remarks of glorified violence about the ongoing protests in the streets – “vicious dogs,” “ominous weapons,” “dominate the streets” and “when the looting starts, the shooting starts,” which even Twitter marked as violent on May 29, 2020. Then on June 1, 2020, he told governors in a video conference, “You’ve got to arrest people, you have to track people, you have to put them in jail for 10 years and you’ll never see this stuff again.” and he wished for “an occupying force,” calling the governors “weak” and “fools” and “jerks.”Then a little later on the same day, from the rose garden of the white house, he threatened “thousands and thousands” of troops into American cities to punish the protestors and “quickly solve the problem,” while simultaneously on his orders the national guard was across the street manhandling, billy clubbing and shooting teargas and pepper balls and flash bangs and rubber bullets at American protestors, clearing them from Lafayette Square so he could walk outside his fortified black house’s heavily guarded gates, traipse across the street, through the square and stand outside historic St. John’s Church wielding a Bible for a photo-op. Episcopal Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde said, “The president just used a Bible and one of the churches of my diocese as a backdrop for a message antithetical to the teachings of Jesus and everything that our church stands for.”
Listen. Ayatullah Sayyed Ali Khamenei said in his June 3, 2020 speech marking the death anniversary of the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Imam Ruhullah Khomeini (r.a. - Rahmatullahi 'aleyh - May Allah's Mercy be on him):
“What is being witnessed in US cities and states today is the disclosure
of realities that was always kept concealed.
These are not new things, but disclosures of existing facts,
like the slime at the bottom of the pond rising to the surface."
It is clear that rather than Minnesota, as the US president said, it is the US government and himself that is “a laughingstock all over the world,” as well as “weak” and “fools” and “jerks.” But this is no laughing matter. What the US, indeed the world, needs is what Imam Khomeini (r.a.) was able, with Allah’s Subhanahu wa ta’ala and the people’s help, to accomplish. Ayatullah Khamenei underlined the Imam’s “seeking and encouraging change,” stating he was not just an instructor or rhetorician, but a commander and “true leader,” who advised “rising up in the path of God.” He helped the people to understand the world powers during a period when “no one even imagined questioning the US power and never thought of doubting its power. Or, doing things which could go contrary to the US will.” Imam Khomeini (r.a) “humiliated the superpowers in the true sense of the word. They [Imam Khomeini (r.a.) and the people] managed to break the authority of the superpowers, defeat them and expel them from the scene.” He showed “that superpowers are easy to defeat, easy to break…And this is what is happening to the US today and the events going on there.”
“Imam Khomeini (r.a.) turned such a nation into a nation that determined their own type of government. People’s demands progressed from trivial, limited requests to great, global demands.” And “Imam Khomeini (r.a.) revolutionized people’s view of religion. Religion developed from being a personal matter limited to prayers and fasting into being a matter for building a civilization, a society and human beings.” And
“Imam Khomeini (r.a.) was an Imam of change
but believed all this to be from God.
He saw the spiritual evolution of the youth as God’s doing.
He believed in ‘You didn’t throw when you threw,
it was God who threw.’ [The Holy Qur’an 8:17]
He said the youth’s evolution was greater than the Pahlavis’ defeat
because it was ‘“the defeat of Shaitan.’”
“The fact that a cold-blooded police officer putting his knee on a Black man’s neck while he begs for his life, but the police officer calmly keeps pressing until the victim dies, while several other policemen stand there and just watch and do nothing, this is not something that has just been created. This is the nature of America,” Ayatullah Khamenei said. The crime committed against this Black man, George Floyd, "is what the Americans have always been doing to the whole the world. They did the same with many nations around the world, including Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and so on. This is the nature and morality of the American government. This is how it manifests itself today. The slogan of #ICantBreathe which the American people are chanting in massive protests around various cities is in fact the words of all the nations, that have been the victims of US oppressive actions, from the bottom of their hearts…By God's Will and Grace, the American government has been disgraced as a result of its own actions...They kill people, they commit obvious crimes, they don't even apologize, yet they cheekily talk big on things such as human rights. Apparently the Black man who was murdered there was not a human being and didn't have any rights!”
This is “America’s moment of reckoning,” Dr. Cornel West, professor of the practice of public philosophy at Harvard University, said on June 1, 2020. And as the American people, especially the young people, have come to understand, in Dr. West’s words, the “connection between the local and the global,” the seeds “of greed, domestically inequality; globally, imperial tentacles, 800 military units abroad, violence…supporting various regimes, dictatorial ones…hatred and white supremacy…anti-Blackness…a predatory capitalist civilization obsessed with money, money, money, domination of workers” and marginalization of others, just like the Iranian people rose up against the Pahlavis, the shah, the US and Britain, the American people will rise up and overthrow the yoke of white supremacy, criminality, oppression, corporate greed and what Dr. West calls “a failed social experiment,” in the US, furthering the cause of peace and justice throughout the world, inshallah.
Dr. West sets the scene - the “American empire imploding, its foundations being shaken with uprisings from below, the catalyst was certainly Brother George Floyd’s public lynching, but the failures of the predatory capitalist economy to provide the satisfaction of the basic needs of food and health care and quality education, jobs with a decent wage, at the same time, the collapse of your political class, the collapse of your professional class. Their legitimacy has been radically called into question and that’s multi-racial. It’s the neo-fascist dimension in Trump. It’s the neo-liberal dimension in Biden and Obama and the Clintons and so forth and it includes much of the media. It includes many of the professors in universities. The young people are saying, ‘You all have been hypocritical. You haven’t been concerned about our suffering, our misery, and we no longer believe in your legitimacy.’ And it spills over into violent explosion.”
It is only with the pillars of rationality, spirituality and justice, as Syed Asad Jafri pointed out on the death anniversary of Imam Khomeini (r.a.) on June 3, 2020 in Toronto, Canada, that a moment can be turned into a movement. Inshallah, with Allah’s Subhanahu wa ta’ala Help and the correct God-conscious leadership, we pray that this moment in the US is converted from the individualistic to the collective and everyone pitches in to turn the tide for truth and justice. For to be silent is to be complicit. Indeed, silence is criminal.
The racist cops and the systems
that support them
are believers in
the satanic “religion”
of racism and capitalist excess,
Dr. Rudolph Bilal Ware, professor of history at the University of California-Santa Barbara and founder and director of the Initiative for the Study of Race, Religion, and Revolution (ISRRAR), informed us in his Wasat sponsored lecture entitled “The Way of Iblis: Racist Violence and Capitalist Excess” on May 31, 2020. These are the two idols that Amerikkka was founded on, two idols that Shaitan tricks people into worshipping ever since our forefather Prophet Adam, peace be upon him, was created, two idols that are dehumanizing by creating and maintaining “racial and class hierarchies,” two idols that take people straight to Hell.
There’s only two routes,
two ways of life –
the Party of Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala,
the party of Shaitan, audhubillah.
- The Holy Qur’an 58:19-22
O Allah! May the oppressed all over the world be strengthened and freed.
May the hands of the enemies of humanity be weakened and die.
May the criminals face their judgement here on Earth and forever in the Hereafter.
May we worship only The True Reality, O Allah, our Creator and Sustainer,
and forever and always remain on the Path of Allah in the Party of Allah.
