Brother Tony Muhammad of the Nation of Islam has taken center stage in the demand for accountability at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Brother Tony was outstanding on Oct 24 at the Rally for Truth in Atlanta.
I contacted Bro Tony for an interview so I could find out more about his views and his plans. In this first segment, Bro Tony expressed his gratitude to an activist mom from Los Angeles, Michelle Ford, who first reached out to the Honorable Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam.
Bro Tony described how Michelle first recognized that black babies were being “disproportionately affected …particularly when it came to the MMR vaccine. She went looking for the most courageous black …leader that she could find who could get this information over to the African American community.” This led to the meeting of Michelle, Bobby Kennedy, Bro Tony, Brian Hooker along with others and Rev Farrakhan.
Bro Tony said that when this issue was talked about at the Million Man March in Oct, “Millions heard what we said about the Centers for Disease Control here in Atlanta. Many in cities all across this country now [are] calling me, wanting me. . . to do huge town hall meetings, that we may enlighten, educate, warn, and give our people. . . the correct information. . . to avoid their babies getting autism and any other ill-effects that are happening as a result of these vaccines, and what can they do for their already affected children.
“This information is moving in the black community now like wildfire. I’m presently in Atlanta, Georgia. . . And tomorrow we will be meeting with over 500 people at our first community meeting [at] which we will have over 14 various pastors from different [Christian] denominations. We will have at least 40 organizations in Atlanta, Georgia. We will have all of the black college campuses. . . .We’ve been endorsed by the Concerned Black Clergy.
“This movement has taken on a new life in the black community, and it is my job, on behalf of the Hon. Minister Louis Farrakhan and the Nation, to make sure I go to every urban city to warn our people that there could possibly be another Tuskegee going on right under our nose which actually according to the numbers that I have been getting on black boys who have been ill-effected, actually make the Tuskegee Experiment look like a Sunday school picnic.”
This is just the beginning of the rallying of parents. During his speech at the Rally for Truth, on Oct 24, Bro Tony talked about how at their initial meeting Kennedy, Rev Farrakhan and others discussed how they would take on the power of the pharmaceutical industry, public health officials, the media and the medical community in order to expose the truth about what is happening to our children.
Bro Tony recounted how he and Kennedy talked with Congressman Elijah Cummings, ranking member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, and asked him to subpoena Dr. William Thompson to testify before a congressional committee about fraudulent research at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Cummings refused.
(This is the same elected official who had serious concerns about vaccine safety in 2012.)
Bro Tony quoted the Honorable Farrakhan, 'Not only have our black politicians been bought, but 95 percent of the white politicians have been bought.’
Bro Tony made it clear that there would be no stopping this movement.
“Now that this information has come to the black community, I’m saying to our Caucasian counterpart, you are getting ready to see the sleeping giant wake up. . . .
“You’re going to see us rise up like you never have before. . . . It’s black babies, and it’s white babies, and it’s brown babies and it’s red babies, They don’t know that now they have united us. And if you attack our babies, then you have declared a declaration of war. . . . This is their worst nightmare, ‘Oh my God, they’re coming together.’
“I’m hurt when I see these mothers in South Central, black mothers in the projects said to me, ‘Brother Tony, I know it, I knew it was the vaccines, but I trusted my doctor. And when he told me, no, it’s genetic, she said as a mother, my intuition, I know my baby.’ Now in the black community, we don’t even know that over 200,000 black boys who would have lived a normal life, now is stricken with autism. Somebody got to pay for that. . . .
“When we got this information, I ran to Los Angeles to meet with so-called black leaders, and I showed them the information, I showed black leaders the proof, and all of them except two pushed it away and said I’m not interested. Then we looked at who financed them and found that they took hundreds of thousands of dollars from the big pharmaceutical companies.”
“I’m saying to you brothers and sisters, as I close, , , , I want to know from you today, how many of you want to be a part of this army for truth , , , “
Three days later, on Oct 27, 2015, the Final Call published the article, An emotional, painful day at Mosque No.15, about the meeting in Atlanta following the CDC rally.
The article noted that those attending were of “mixed race” and faiths, that Rev. Gerald Durley, pastor emeritus of Providence Missionary Baptist Church in Atlanta, Pastor Khalfani Lawson, of Providence Missionary Baptist Church, and Rev. Derrick Rice, senior pastor of Sankofa United Church of Christ, were participants.
The ending was a call for truth and accountability: “That pain exists among many families and it’s time that the CDC comes clean on everything it knows and has studied about vaccine safety, autism and any negative effects, said activists.”
