PJ-Farrakhan-1

Louis Farrakhan, born in New York City in 1933, started out in life as a talented musician. Training intensively on the violin from the age of six, he played with the Boston College orchestra and the Boston Civic Symphony, appeared and won an award on Ted Mack’s Original Amateur Hour, and won national competitions as a teenager. In the 1950s Farrakhan—or Louis Wolcott as he was then known—took a different musical tack as a calypso performer. He recorded albums, toured, and in 1955 headlined a show in Chicago called “Calypso Follies.” In other words, Louis Wolcott could have gone on contributing something positive to society as a musician and entertainer.

But that year, 1955, in Chicago, he embarked on a different path. Through a friend, Wolcott came into contact with the Nation of Islam, an antiwhite, antisemitic, African-American organization founded in the 1930s. Wolcott joined, converted to Islam, renounced music, and—in a profound sense—was no more, having morphed into Louis Farrakhan. And Farrakhan quickly rose through the Nation of Islam’s ranks, becoming its leading figure by the early 1980s. He has also been, for decades, America’s most vicious antisemitic rabble-rouser, poisoning thousands of minds or exacerbating poison that was already there. As Discover the Networks notes:

For many years, Farrakhan has ranked among the most influential black figures in America. He draws enormous, standing-room-only crowds of listeners wherever he speaks. An October 1992 lecture he gave in Atlanta actually outdrew a World Series game played there that same night….

Farrakhan’s October 16, 1995 “Million Man March” [in Washington] drew several hundred thousand attendees….

Farrakhan has been a mentor and role model to many black radicals, among the most notable being Malik Zulu Shabazz and the late Khalid Abdul Muhammad.

Farrakhan’s venues for speeches include mosques, churches, and universities, as well as online lectures. At Madison Square Garden in 1985, he addressed a notable but typical statement to Jews: “And don’t you forget, when it’s God who puts you in the ovens, it’s forever!”

I know people in Chicago who swear allegiance to Farrakhan.

But let us not be coy, disingenuous, or myopic. Barack Obama has been voluntarily deep diving into this cesspool the whole of his life. While cautious to never get his fingerprints left on the weapons of open anti-semitism, Obama is bathed in these toxic waters.

Jeremiah Wright is a Farrakhan admirer and Obama is a bald faced liar if he pretends not to know it. Don Warden, Rashid Khalidi and Ali Abunimah are not strangers to Obama's inner self. Nor is Chuck Hagel, Robert Malley or Samantha Power.

Nor Bill Ayers or Alice Palmer.

Obama has been surrounding himself with anti-Israel, Jew hating, non-stop since the days at the knee of Frank Marshall Davis and his seedy grandfather.

Anti-American and anti-Israel radical leftism, Nation of Islam virulence and black nationalist rage are woven together in a sea of slander and treason. We need to stop fretting about the backlash of telling the truth. Opposing racism and anti-semitism is not for the faint of heart. To believe that racism cannot come from the black community is a broad farce. It can and it does.

Obama is an abuser of race and a traitor against unity. He is intentionally divisive.

Therefore, HE is the number one purveyor of hate...because he has the biggest pulpit and all the levers. Obama is the worst offender, because he hides behind the curtain in the Oz of Suspect Class Warfare.

Farrakhan is a pimp. It was Obama all along.

Nothing much needs to be said about Farrakhan except that his thinking is so dependent on white people as to be laughable. The history of the slave trade of course is a sham. For the movers behind the slave trade with its murderous actions were Islamists. The African slave trade was started after the successful Islamic penetration of Africa.

People in the West did have a notion of bonded servants - this is true - but blood Slavery, much like blood everything, was Farrakhan's Islamic and Muslim buddies. A fact I am sure he well knows and is proud of. After all if that man doesn't stand for spite then there is no such word.

As for the rest of the article some more bad news. If this good man thinks the center has held filled with decent people he is living in another world - a hopeful one admittedly, but none the less not the real one.

The center is Left. Left is radical. Right center has been coopted by the Left placating Conservative movement.

After all - radicals are radical and idealism is idealism. And all radicals are Left and all idealism unconstrained by reality is also Left. And all revisionism is also Left.

I read an article in either U.S. Newsweek or Time, around 1995 or 1996 ... Where Farrakhan was stating, that is was perfectly alright for Sudan to enslave all non-believers of Islam. Now, Farrakhan actually meant slavery, the kind that he is always talking about, against the white slave owners of the South, before the Civil War. Farrakhan had just visited Sudan and was looking at the political issues and civil war. He was in total support of the Sudanese government and all the heinous crimes against, the Infidels! Slavery, to Farrakhan is absolutely proper and okay, when it is against an Infidel ... That means ALL, who do NOT believe in Islam and the Prophet Muhammed. I can only say ... When I read that article, which was written by a Black Journalist ... I was appalled and sickened!!! I never liked or respected Farrakhan ... But, this article did more to me ... I now know, that Farrakhan is completely evil and could never be a man of God or Allah!!!

Food for thought.

Justice Matthew Cooper who is Jewish, is convinced I am anti-Semitic. But, why would he conduct himself from the bench in such a way that would fuel anti-Semitism? Unless his outburst is an inspection of his own brain for his hatred of Gentile fathers of European decent.

Maybe he knows Jay Lefkowitz who said to The New York Times:

“Deep down, I believe that a little anti-Semitism is a good thing for the Jews – reminds them who they are" (New York Times Magazine, February 12, 1995 p. 65). These comments were made by Jay Lefkowitz, a lawyer, who served as President Bush’s Special Envoy for Human Rights. The fact that the comments originated with a lawyer is uncanny, but even more so because of his background and his status as a Special Envoy for Human Rights in North Korea. What the comments really demonstrate is that a desirable amount of anti-Semitism – Mr. Lefkowitz needs “a little anti-Semitism", not a lot – whenever absent, can and must be induced by provocation to perpetuate the cause for Jewish group stratagem.

Just thinking out loud.

The essay in question:
+The Myth of the Innocent Civilian

http://www.nolanchart.com/article674-the-myth-of-the-innocent-civilian.html

"Justice Matthew F. Cooper has distorted, invented or misremembered almost every significant claim and phrase. In particular, 'Jewish conspiracy' is completely false, in spirit and in word.

"It is serious and upsetting. Rather than correct a smear, Justice Cooper has attempted, perhaps not surprisingly, to justify one smear with another in the same direction.

"Michael Santomauro promotes the ideal of "scientific journalism" – where the underlaying evidence of all articles is available to the reader precisely in order to avoid these type of distortions. Michael Santomauro treasurse his strong Jewish support just as he treasures the support from pan-Arab democracy activists and others who share the hope for a just world." --I.S.

"For many years, Farrakhan has ranked among the most influential black figures in America" "The Ten Worst U.S. Purveyors of Antisemitism, #1: Louis Farrakhan" Those two quotes suggest that Black people are anti-Semites as well. If Farrakhan by this article is #1 influence of Black people, is this why he would be by those who measure hm as #1 anti-Semitic? Ask yourself what does one have to do with the other? Was Jesus of 2000 years ago, as well as today the most influential among many races? Jesus biggest opposition were those who claim to Semitic people (the Jews), it's in the Bible. You can tell who the person is by who his enemies are. Has Louis Farrakhan influenced Black people to send any violence upon or toward Jewess people? No. Not in the History of the Nation of Islam has any violence come to the Jewess people. The reality of those two quotes is that Minister Louis Farrakhan represents what the hidden rulers of this world dreaded. It's the same as it was 2000 years ago with Jesus of the New Testament. Jesus did not have his followers attack the authorizes in that day. Paul had the same problem with the Ruling Jews of his day. Why because he came preaching Jesus was alive and the Resurrection of the dead. The same today with Minister Louis Farrakhan. Is there something going on that some cannot deal with? Is it time of biblical fulfillment? The Time and What Must Be don Lecture Series at noi.org

The only question that matters is whether or not what Min. Farrakhan says is the truth or not. Any other question is irrelevant. In other words, show where Min. Farrakhan is not telling the truth. Of course there is no one on this board, or even on this planet that can do that.

Some years ago, when Farrakhan visited the mid-east, one of my Muslim friends was outraged that the Islamic governments there rolled out the welcome mat for him. My friend was outraged that they used the occasion to play politics, thumbing their noses at the United States by being friendly to one of its outspoken critics.

My friend said that, by doing so, they had been unfaithful to Islam. If they had been faithful, they would have taken the opportunity to execute him for blasphemy.

See, REAL Muslims don't think much of your "Black Islam". They recognize it for the fake that it is.

Say, did you hear him talk that mothership orbiting the earth?

Do you seriously believe that?

If Farrakhan were not so very evil and dangerous, he'd be hilarious.

But of course, we'd be laughing AT him, not with him.

The Minister Farrakhan will be 81 years old in May. He has inspired many young African American and Latino men to be better fathers and husbands. Also, better citizens as well. It's easy to criticize from the keyboard, but what have you done to change your surroundings that has made an impact in the lives of anybody? And i'm not talking about giving money, because many of you have it to give, and you feel good about yourself after you do that, but i'm actually talking about being on the front lines in society and actually making a difference in peoples' lives. We should be having a dialog where we can learn from each other. I would love to be able to ask your thoughts on different things. Peacefully.

Given Farrakhan's age, we can take comfort in Robert Heinlein's wise words: "Time wounds all heels."

He has done more in 15 minutes than you have in your sad miserable life. Anyone that think that's all Min. Farrakhan does knows nothing of the man. You are clearly in that category.

The joke is on his followers. "Black Islam" isn't really Islam.

A Muslim friend of mine once told me that Farrakhan would be executed for blasphemy if he were in a real Islamic country. At the time he was mourning the fact his own country (Pakistan) courting Louie. He recognized that they were just using him as a pawn against the U.S. , and lamented their unfaithfulness to Allah in giving credibility to Louie.

Mark v The Prophet himself (PBUH) said that "three generations after him would not be of him" Ask your friend to tell you what that means. and then ask him why would the Prohet say the even the man has hair like raisins and his skin is the color of soot follow him> Ask your friend to tell in truth what that means. Ask him is he sure he's the real thing? Farrakhan has been to many Islamic countries-He's still alive.

Of course he's still alive. He's a useful tool.

Nothing more.

If the real Islam ever does take over America, he will be among the first executed.

Whoever told you either doesn't know what they're talking about, or they are lying through their false teeth.. Minister Farrakhan has been well received by the people in the Muslim world, and has been to Mecca SEVERAL TIMES. He still has his head, and is still breathing.

Well, yes, well received by the leadership. Not surprising. There's no truth in any version of Islam, so it's not at all surprising that the lot of them should be characterized by lying whenever it's convenient.

Of course, lying is recommended by Mohamed himself, so of course his spawn lie.

"Antisemitism is pathology, a symptom of failure to cope with reality and of recourse, instead, to paranoid aggression. "

Yes, this is true.

But there is more to it than that.

Satan himself is behind it.

I guess you would agree with me that Black People has not been the ones printing 99.99 % of the Number one seller- The Bible. You would agree that it has been Caucasian publishers. If you don't know who Satan is here's a hint. you can take as it is or you won't. But you go make sense out of it for yourself. Then go back and study before you attack a man who's giving you, us-America a warning. Read Revelations 2:9 and Revelations 3:9
