Flashback! The Ballot or The Bullet! Stop Singing & Start Swinging! (Vid)

“Nigger! Get your hand outta my pocket!”, a man shouted from the disturbance in the audience. The bodyguards of the black speaker moved to quell the disturbance. A man with a sawed-off shotgun rushed forward and shot the black speaker in the chest. Two other men charged the stage and fired semi-automatic handguns, hitting the black speaker several times killing him.

The black speaker was Malcolm X. He was assassinated on Feb. 21, 1965. (My source: Wikipedia)

Since this is Black History Month, and this coming, Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2012, will be the 47th anniversary of his assassination, I thought I’d present one of his rousing and animated speeches which he gave in the early 60’s.

Although his speech is for the Blacks of his time, it is relevant today for the 99% . Malcolm assails and berates the hypocrisy and corruption of the government __a government which refers to itself as a “democracy”.

He begins his speech by pointing out he is Muslim by religion. However, he stresses that his comments come, not from his religious philosophy, but from a political and economical posture.

Malcolm is not racist, for he was a man seeking justice, not only for Blacks, but for all. “We ALL have the same enemy”, he stresses.

Here’s his inspiring speech titled, “The Ballot or The Bullet”! Stop Singing and Start Swinging!

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
