Carlos Muhammad, Always at the Left Hand of Chaos

Carlos Muhammad of the Nation of Islam has a knack for appearing just off center stage. Here he is Saturday, at arm’s reach from the Mayor of Baltimore as she announced she had given space to “those who wished to destroy” and thanked the Nation of Islam for being so helpful; the city had already begun to go up in flames at the time:

Here he is again:


[W]hile Muhammad stood with Rawlings-Blake as she called for peace in the streets Saturday, it was a more fiery message he cheered on at a speech at Baltimore’s Morgan State University in November.

It was there, in the aftermath of a Missouri grand jury’s decision not to indict a white police officer in the shooting death of Michael Brown, that Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan asserted that peace was not an option for blacks in their dealings with law enforcement.

“We going to die anyway. Let’s die for something,” Farrakhan told the crowd that day.

“Teach your baby how to throw the bottle if they can’t bite,” Farrakhan said, as he made a throwing motion.

Whether Saturday’s ne’er-do-wells were acting on Farrakhan’s command is unclear. But looting occurred, and bottles, chairs and garbage cans were thrown at police, local businesses and innocent bystanders.

Not to mention rocks and bricks.

During his November speech, Farrakhan held up a copy of the Koran, pointing out that the Muslim holy book includes a “law of retaliation.”

As with Rawlings-Blake, Muhammad stood just behind and to the left of Farrakhan as he issued the call to arms.

Farrakhan evoked wild cheers from his audience by exhorting it to “tear this goddamn country up.”

You can see why Farrakhan was awarded a lifetime achievement award by the church our Community Organizer in Chief attended for 20 years.

Not even the cognitively challenged Stephanie Rawlings-Blake expects anyone to listen to her feckless bleating about peace. The rioting is a product of deliberate effort on the part of the liberal establishment, which has been stoking black grievance for cultural Marxist purposes, and which has its uses for both Rawlings-Blake and the Nation of Islam, as current events indicate.
