As federal and local authorities investigate the killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, and whether or not Florida’s “stand your ground” law applied to the shooter, George Zimmerman (not Jewish), Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan has been calling for “justice” in typically disturbing ways.
The Blaze reports that Farrakhan has been using Twitter to send calls for peace, justice and retaliation that could be interpreted as a veiled threat.
“I am deeply saddened by this beautiful young man’s loss of life.”
“Let us see what kind of justice will come for his breaved family and our bereaved community.”
“Where there is no justice, there will be no peace. Soon and very soon, the law of retaliation may very well be applied.”
“Think. Reflect. Then get up and do something for self or suffer the consequences.”
“No one respects a beggar. The time has now arrived where you must beg no man. You must get up and do it for yourself.
When we fail to do justice, we literally set up conditions that destroy peace.”
