Louis Farrakhan Transcript from Video

[0:51] Our government has gone into nations with money from our Congress to stimulate the dissatisfied and then arm them against a government that is their government.  That’s what America did in Libya, that’s what they’re doing in Syria, and the blowback now is, they have created a refugee crisis that is destabilizing the countries in Europe.

So when Mr. Trump said, we can’t allow these Muslims, refugees, into America, now a lot of people were upset with him.  But I know, sir, that the hatred for America in the Muslim world is building.  As we told Mr. Bush [?], no Muslim leader could call for Jihad and have it stick.  No Muslim leader had the power to unite the whole Muslim world.

I said, but America’s policies will unite those people against the west and it is happening.  So, in this way, Mr. Trump, I think, is wise to vet [smiles 2:26] anyone coming from that area into America because the hatred for America is in the streets now.  So if those people are refugees and America feels I’ve got to let 10,000 of them in because America created the problem.  Now, if you let them in and you don’t vet them carefully, you might be letting in your own destruction.

When we dialogue we correct misperceptions.  That is what makes Trump acceptable to so many white people who feel, damn!  I can’t be myself now.  I can’t say what I really feel.  I’ll pay a political price.  So Mr. Trump says, to heck with that.  I’ll tell you what’s on my mind.  And that is freeing a lot of people that like what he is doing.

So the politicians today, I looked at the many Republicans and Democrats that are trying to win the nomination of their party.  And it says to me, you know, it’s like a, I don’t want to be vulgar but, it’s like, in any major city, you see women undressed, showing their wares for a John to buy them.  And it’s like politicians who don’t have money, but have ideas and they parade themselves before rich and powerful people to get money apparently for their ideas, that the rich agreed with.

But the moment that they become what they’re looking to become, they find that the rich have an agenda for them; that the rich have something to ask of them, like the John asks of the prostitute.

And that’s one of the things that I admire about Mr. Trump, because he told them all, I don’t want your money.

And when a politician does not want money from the rich, he’s freer than the others to really do good for the masses of the people.  And I think that today we are in the midst of the darkest hour in American history.

And so, if we don’t make the right move with the right people at the right time, the America that we know, we’re not going to see it become great again.
