That is how the Austin, Texas-based radio show host Alex Jones reached out to request an interview with the Minister in an extraordinary 20-minute videotaped invitation posted on Jones’s Youtube channel. His motivation for the invite, he said, was “to bring people together and end the race war before the globalists can get it started.”

Alex Jones is a fascinating phenom in the fast-changing cyberworld of news and information. He has made his name as a fierce advocate of individual rights which he feels are fast eroding by devious design. He speaks to issues important to his daily audience of 10 million to 20 million Whites, such as gun rights and unchecked reach of big government, which have given him a reputation for being somewhat of a right wing zealot. His website is an aggressive alternative to the state-sponsored networks, and the Alex Jones Radio Show is syndicated on more than 160 stations.

Jones is feared and despised by the mainstream media elites for the same reason Donald Trump is feared by the political elites. Both men owe nothing to a world they consider corrupt to the bone, and both men have found independent means to reach a massive audience of White Americans thirsting for an alternative to a forced diet of political correctness. In referring to the media, Trump, a leading GOP presidential candidate said, “Don’t believe these people. They’re bloodsuckers … . They give you such false reporting. It’s unbelievable how dishonest they are.” Whites who cheer that statement get their news and information from Alex Jones, who states it more philosophically, “There is a war on for your mind.”

But a closer look reveals a man with a willingness to dig a little deeper than what the standard media has trained us to expect. Though he can be as outwardly brash as Donald Trump, he has elbowed his way into a prime position of advocacy for his White audience with a researcher’s command of facts, figures, and an aggressive style of a no-holds-barred debater. If Trump has bought his way in, Jones has thought his way in.

This is not to say that Jones and his media operation have not at times proffered racism—some clumsy, some hostile. But most would be surprised at how often Jones’s positions on issues synchronize with those of the Nation of Islam and Minister Farrakhan, including on many that the Limbaughs, Becks, Hannitys and O’Reillys are loathe to address, such as: the existence of a shadow government, the dangers of police militarization, the malevolent influence of the Bilderberg Group, the Federal Reserve, and international bankers, abortion as a form of racial genocide, 9/11 as one of many false flag government operations, the unjust demonization of Libya and Muammar Gadhafi, the U.S. deception of the Iraq wars, the assault on our health by the pharmaceutical companies, and the total submission of the mainstream media (including the aforementioned) to the wishes of the global elite. For more than 60 years Minister Farrakhan has often been the only Black voice willing to publicly confront these manifestations of pure evil.

In his invitation to the Minister, Jones said, “The fact that the Nation of Islam has fought against the CIA’s weaponization of hip-hop and the whole cop killing culture—that’s something that’s been amazing. Before I knew about vaccines being deadly and then seeing the facts in the documents, the Nation of Islam newspaper (Final Call) was reporting on it 30 years ago and having scientists and people on and exposing it. The Nation of Islam has exposed the fact that HIV is a weaponized race specific bioweapon.”

Jones also lauds the N.O.I. fundamentals: “But at the end of the day, what I do admire is someone standing up and saying we should spend money in our own community. We should build ourselves up. We shouldn’t use the drugs that the establishment ships in for social engineering.”

This is a direct endorsement of the major initiatives Minister Farrakhan has recently announced. The Redistribute the Pain program targets Black spending habits and the Ten Thousand Fearless are Black men counteracting the drug and gun violence in our own communities.

When Jones speaks of a planned and imminent race war, he echoes that which the Minister has been warning of for decades. “I say it again,” Min. Farrakhan said in 1989, “the government of the United States of America is planning an assault on the Black community, specifically aimed at our youth. And the conspiracy is so deep and so diabolical that many of you will not even believe that at this very moment that I am talking to you, your lives hang in the balance, whether you are living in Chicago, Detroit, Boston, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, or any city in America.” Today, Alex Jones’s is the most prominent White voice affirming the Minister’s dire words.

Other similarities reveal the threat that such truth-tellers present to the wicked. Jones recently spoke of an assassination plot against him that was foiled by police, and he told of harassment of himself, his staff, and his family by intelligence agencies. He said he feels very much like a victim of COINTELPRO, the FBI program run by J. Edgar Hoover that sabotaged progressive Black organizations—especially the Nation of Islam—and murdered an untold number of Black leaders.

Similarly, both Alex Jones and Minister Farrakhan are targets of the privatized COINTELPRO operation run by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith (ADL). And this brings us to a most significant benefit for both Black and White in this burgeoning dialogue. Both the SPLC and the ADL represent constituencies who have always benefitted from racial division and misunderstanding. They are firmly in among the 10 percent who manipulate the masses for their own profit and control. They know that if Gentile Whites and Blacks ever come together on a higher plane of truthful dialogue their power dissolves before our very eyes. The SPLC and the ADL have used their power to inflame the racial divide. They have told Blacks that Whites like Alex Jones are bad and dangerous, and they tell Whites that Farrakhan, the N.O.I., and its supporters are a violent curse on America.

Through this inspired dialogue Alex Jones and Minister Farrakhan are breaking that grip on our consciousness and opening up a pathway to true racial understanding. But the power elite—that which Jones calls “globalists” and the Minister calls Satan—will not give up their power easily, and both Whites and Blacks should be wary of a caustic reaction from agents of these groups seeking to undermine any attempt to overcome our differences.

Alex Jones was willing to take a bold and impressive step toward a divine man who has the answers. This is not to say that Jones is in total agreement, but unlike most in the White world he has taken an earnest decision that open dialogue is the only avenue toward true understanding. The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan responded to Jones’s sincerity and answered resoundingly in one of the most enlightening and fruitful interviews ever filmed. We all will benefit from this exchange, and we should encourage and participate in the dialogue that ensues.
