'You're Nothing But a Lying Devil!': Farrakhan's Fierce Response to 'Mischief-Makers' — and His Message to 'White America\

Video

"They're saying these things to frighten white people and silly black people."

The Minister Louis Farrakhan released a video on Monday claiming that media outlets "terribly missed the mark" when covering a speech he delivered last month during which he called for black Americans to "rise up" and "kill those who kill us" if the government fails to "intercede."

"I never said kill all white people! Those are not my words. Those are the words of the mischief-makers," Farrakhan said during a speech in Memphis, Tennessee, on August 20. "If you're going to quote me, then quote me! But when you add your evil mischief-making to my words to make white people think that I'm calling on black people to kill white people to start a race war, then you're nothing but a lying devil!"

He continued, "They're saying these things to frighten white people and silly black people."

Farrakhan said that both the Bible and the Koran contain a "law of retaliation in matters of the slain." The Nation of Islam leader also said that it is essential for police and prosecutors to properly and fairly do their jobs.

Watch Farrakhan's latest remarks below:

"A few weeks ago in Miami I quoted the law of retaliation. In the holy Koran it says retaliation is prescribed for you in matters of the slain," he said, referencing his previous speech that made headlines. "It's a prescription by God to balance the mind and calm the breast of those who suffer unjust killings."

Farrakhan said that, when it comes to the slain, it is a "life for a life," but that God does not permit anyone to be the "aggressor."

"I said in Miami, if the federal government refuses to intercede on our behalf when we are slain, then we must rise up and kill those who kill us," he explained, pushing back against any claims that he is responsible for radicalizing people.

"They want to blame Farrakhan for radicalizing the people. I say to white America: look in the mirror," he said. "Every time an act of hatred is done and there is no justice, the breasts of those of us who are grieved over the loss of our loved ones — and there is no redress of that grievance — then the lack of justice begins to imbalance the mind, and the more injustice imbalances the mind, the persons who are aggrieved become silly or savage. They lose the knowledge of self."

See Farrakhan's comments that launched the controversy earlier this month below:

As TheBlaze previously reported, in a speech earlier this year, Farrakhan also issued a call for “black soldiers in the U.S. Armed Forces to come home, unite and fight for [their] own lives."
