Farakhan Recruits Chicago Gangs To Serve As 'Natural Soldiers' For Nation of Islam

UNIVERSITY VILLAGE — Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan told thousands of followers Sunday he was planning to reach out to gang leaders to help "protect" the Nation of Islam.

That came at the Nation of Islam's annual Saviours' Day convention. Farrakhan, 79, renewed the call for blacks to pool money and buy as much land as possible, in order to "control means of production" and produce food and other goods, such as clothing.

Farrakhan said collectively owning land is a way for black people in America to prosper economically. The calls were part of a speech that lasted more than three hours and touched on topics including Libya's Moammar Ghaddafi, U.S. Defense Secretary nominee Chuck Hagel and a national push for gun control.

Help me understand.

so you get armed gangs, whose only loyalty is to the gang, to protect the land owned by the godly people, who probably won't have a lot of guns. So the self sufficient and prosperous will be surrounded by people who generally take what they want through violence. Hmmmm, sounds good. What could possibly go wrong?

three hour speach

Yea, I Know...Sigh...
