Farrakhan promotes old racist ideas with undeserved influence

Farrakhan promotes old racist ideas with undeserved influence

Ever since Louis Farrakhan seized control of a small Muslim sub-sect called the Nation of Islam, he has used that platform to spew racial and anti-Semitic hatred in the boldest and most offensive manner. He makes no pretense in not believing in the principles of Martin Luther King. Farrakhan’s vicious rants are an affront to everything in which the slain civil rights leader believed and for which he died.

In addition to being an anti-Semite, Farrakhan is a black nationalist and proponent of black supremacy. He recently resurrected an idea older than America, itself – a geographic separation of blacks and whites. He wants a separate state for blacks. He wants it to be a separate nation – apparently unaware of the fact that there are a number of African countries that are predominantly black.

Segregation of blacks and whites has been a longstanding common ground between black and white racists. In the 1800s, black nationalists groups joined in common cause with the Ku Klux Klan, and other Democrat paramilitary racist organizations, to push for geographical separation. There was a back-to-Africa movement that had thousands of blacks in America traveling to Liberia – a point of destination for separatist blacks. President James Monroe was so supportive of deporting blacks that the new capital city of Liberia was named Monrovia.

Farrakhan refers to blacks who want to stay in a multicultural America as “slaves,” who are willing to live among their enemies. Yep! All whites are the enemies of black people, according to Farrakhan.

Farrakhan does not take any ownership of the idea of black separatism. He says it is what God wants. Just as those folks in the KKK claimed that God opposed integration and inter-marriage, Farrakhan also says it is the will of God to maintain separate races.

Though Farrakhan is essentially the anti-MLK, he has a small but loyal occult-like following within the black community. However, he commands a more important place in the arena of public debate than he deserves because of his alliances with prominent Democrat politicians and a left-wing news media inexplicably willing to elevate him as a person whose opinions and comments are worthy of coverage and consideration.

The lack of condemnation of his racist views has given him a false legitimacy that has helped grow his following beyond what it would otherwise have been. It has also enabled his allies and followers to assume public standing and influence that is undeserved.

One of his proteges is Keith Ellison, who served as a member of Congress and was elevated to the “co-chairmanship” of the Democratic National Committee. He was not only a passive follower of Farrakhan but was a full-time worker for the National if Islam. In many ways, this should be viewed as working for the Ku Klux Klan. But the political left-wing maintains a double standard on these matters.

Ellison was just elected as Attorney General of the State of Minnesota. While Ellison was compelled to repudiate some of Farrakhan’s more hateful and strident statements, he has maintained important respect for and private association with Farrakhan.

The malignancy of Farrakhan’s influence among both black and Muslim radicals was seen in the #MeToo Movement — founded to promote opposition to sexual abuse. The conflation of women’s rights and anti-Semitism turned out to be a politically toxic combination. The presence of Farrakhan admirers, Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory, as a principle organizers caused a number of major liberal feminist groups and individuals to withdraw their initial sponsorship of #MeToo marches and actually forced the cancellation of several.

Innumerable Democrat politicians have posed for photographs with Farrakhan. This included Presidents Clinton and Obama. They, like most other Democrat leaders, claim to reject Farrakhan’s rhetoric, but neither often enough nor convincingly.

Farrakhan has shared common ground with the most anti-Semitic and anti-American elements of Islam in foreign nations. He was particular close to the late-Moammar Kaddafi at a time when the Libyan dictator was the number one sponsor of international terrorism – and was behind the murderous Palestinian attack on the Israeli athletes during the Munich Olympics in 1996 that killed 11 athletes, one German police officer and five terrorists and the bombing of Pan Am flight 103 jet over Lockerbie, Scotland that killed 259 people.

The fact that Farrakhan has been given as much legitimacy as he has, is a disgrace. One cannot credibly oppose the hate-based philosophies of white supremacy and KKK racism against blacks and stand by as the same political cancer is allowed to spread across America only because comes from hateful elements in the black community.

So, there ‘tis.

    if Farrakhan had any intelligence which he does not he will remember from his slavery days of which he still is that the country of Liberia was purchased by the USA for any slave that wanted to return to Africa and since Farrakhan still has the slave mentality I suggest he take his mentality and the rest of him back to Africa where his and his like feeble minded nation of Muslim
    cohorts will feel right at home seeing as Africa is his home

      That comment outa the ” left side ” o your gob is inherently offensive & patently anti-semitic.

      A little advice on social media etiquette. Unscrew your head, shove it up your orifice stinker, take a deep head-clearing sniff & then you will, to your shock- horror, finally, completely & permanently understand what the Democrats are truthfully all about.

        A Swastika-slurping apologist for bigotry generally and anti-Semitism in particular has sprung leaks that soaked his lederhosen bigly.
