Farrakhan Compares Himself To Henry Ford In Detroit

Update – March 5, 2014: Far­rakhan deliv­ered “Part 2” of his Sav­iours’ Day address on Sun­day in Chicago, empha­siz­ing his view that “Satanic Jews…control every­thing and mostly everybody.”

Speak­ing to an audi­ence of 18,000 at Detroit’s Joe Louis Arena yes­ter­day, Nation of Islam (NOI) leader Louis Far­rakhan com­pared him­self to Henry Ford and made alle­ga­tions – both explicit and implicit – about Jew­ish con­trol over African-Americans and var­i­ous industries.farrakhan-detroit-henry-ford-saviours-day-2014

Dur­ing his keynote address at the NOI’s annual Sav­iours’ Day con­ven­tion, Far­rakhan likened him­self to auto mag­nate Henry Ford, who pro­moted anti-Semitic con­spir­a­cies in the 1920s in a series (and book) called The Inter­na­tional Jew: the World’s Fore­most Prob­lem. Far­rakhan called Ford “a great man who was called an anti-Semite” and added, “I feel like I’m in good company.”

Far­rakhan alleged that Jews manip­u­late the media and pub­lish­ing indus­tries to destroy the rep­u­ta­tions of African-Americans. He explained, “See, they write our his­tory and feed it back to us.” Far­rakhan retold a story about a meet­ing with for­mer chair­man of the Sea­gram Com­pany Edgar Bronf­man, in which he por­trays him­self as stand­ing up to the wealthy Jew­ish busi­ness­man who sup­pos­edly flaunted his wealth, power, and abil­ity to “make The New York Times” print what­ever he wanted.

Jew­ish con­trol over the African-American com­mu­nity, as well as var­i­ous indus­tries, has been a com­mon theme in Farrakhan’s weekly online ser­mons lead­ing up to Sav­iours’ Day. In those ser­mons, he com­monly refers to Jews as “Satanic” or as the “Syn­a­gogue of Satan.”

Dur­ing his speech yes­ter­day, Far­rakhan said, “See, Satan is in con­trol of Hol­ly­wood. Satan is in con­trol of tele­vi­sion. Satan is in con­trol of media.  Satan is in con­trol of money. Satan is in control.”

Copies of the anti-Semitic book The Syn­a­gogue of Satan, writ­ten by Assis­tant Edi­tor of the NOI’s Final Call news­pa­per, Asha­hed Muham­mad, were sold through­out the 4-day con­ven­tion. The book, whose over­ar­ch­ing theme is that unknown to most, the world is being manip­u­lated and cor­rupted by Satanic pow­ers led by Jew­ish elites, has been heav­ily pro­moted by the NOI since 2005.ashahed-muhammad-synagogue-of-satan

Far­rakhan spent por­tions of his keynote address call­ing for a sep­a­rate Black judi­cial sys­tem that would try white peo­ple: “I’m going on record with this today…We have to have our own courts.  You failed us. Well, hell on you! We’re gonna try them in our court.” Far­rakhan also said Blacks should not feel like they need white peo­ple for any­thing. “You wasn’t born with no white peo­ple. You pre-date them. They weren’t in your life until recently. So how come you think you can’t get along with­out them?”

Farrakhan’s keynote address was attended by sev­eral pub­lic offi­cials, includ­ing Con­gress­man John Cony­ers, for­mer Con­gress­woman Car­olyn Cheeks Kil­patrick and Detroit City Coun­cil Pres­i­dent Brenda Jones. Cony­ers was in atten­dance for Farrakhan’s May 2013 anti-Semitic ser­mon that Cony­ers later con­demned as “unac­cept­able racist, anti-Semitic and homophobic.”

Farrakhan’s Saviours’ Day In Detroit Preceded By 58 Weeks Of Hate

Prior to this weekend’s annual Nation of Islam (NOI) Sav­iours’ Day con­ven­tion in Detroit, NOI leader Louis Far­rakhan embarked on a weekly online lec­ture series that pro­moted some of the most hate­ful anti-Semitic themes of his career.Farrakhan-the-time-detroit

The series, titled “The Time and What Must Be Done,” con­sis­tently blamed Jews for the slave trade and con­spir­ing to con­trol the gov­ern­ment, media, Hol­ly­wood and var­i­ous Black indi­vid­u­als and orga­ni­za­tions. The videos gen­er­ally received about 20,000–50,000 views each on YouTube.

The last three episodes, which were broad­cast in the weeks lead­ing up to the Sav­iours’ Day con­ven­tion in Detroit, Far­rakhan focused on how the “Syn­a­gogue of Satan,” a phrase he uses through­out the series to describe Jews, con­trols the U.S. gov­ern­ment for nefar­i­ous purposes.

For exam­ple, Far­rakhan said:

“You can­not say you have a covenant through Moses who gave you a law that you are flaunt­ing today with what you are doing through Hol­ly­wood, through music, through the media, through the press, through the news­pa­pers, through your inor­di­nate con­trol of the means by which the peo­ple think and make their deci­sions.

“David — even though he may have made a mis­take — he sub­mit­ted and repented before God. This you false Jews have not done. No. You are not a Jew! I say you’re a so-called Jew. You are Satan mas­querad­ing as a covenanted peo­ple of God. You must be exposed, regard­less of the consequences…”

Farrakhan’s online lec­ture series rep­re­sents one of the Nation of Islam’s most sig­nif­i­cant attempts to incor­po­rate social media into its wide-ranging pro­pa­ganda cam­paign against Jews.

Farrakhan Broadcast Demonizing Jews Airs One Day After Receiving Praise in Detroit

One day after Nation of Islam (NOI) leader Louis Far­rakhan deliv­ered an anti-Semitic speech at the Fel­low­ship Chapel in Detroit and was praised by Detroit reli­gious lead­ers, the NOI broad­cast what appears to be a pre-recorded anti-Jewish rant by Far­rakhan titled “Mak­ing Satan Known.”farrakhan-conspiracy-satan-jews

The rant, part 19 of Farrakhan’s 52-week lec­ture series, echoes Farrakhan’s remarks in Detroit, where he char­ac­ter­ized the Jew­ish peo­ple as “Satanic.” Far­rakhan, who claimed in the May 18 broad­cast that it is his job “to make Satan known,” asks “are we really a hate group or is it that you hate the fact that your lying, your trick­ery, your deceit, your med­dling, your snoop­ing, your trou­ble­mak­ing, your mischief-making, your mur­der of the human fam­ily will be made known?”

Far­rakhan accuses his Jew­ish crit­ics of abus­ing “your power to mis­use, your power to mis­la­bel with the media, your power with Black lead­er­ship, your power with Black preach­ers, your power with Black intel­lec­tu­als, your power with Black sports and enter­tain­ment figures…will the real anti-Semite please stand up?”

Look at what you’ve done to this coun­try,” Far­rakhan con­tin­ues. “We can show how you rule Hol­ly­wood. We can prove how you are the king of the media. We can show and prove that you own most of the pub­lish­ing houses, that you own most of the record com­pa­nies that have these Black rap­pers in their filthy lan­guage say­ing things against their Black women and glo­ri­fy­ing a life of crime and drugs. You per­mit it. We can show and prove that in your Hol­ly­wood, you place us in such a degraded state.”

You are the mas­ter of seg­re­ga­tion,” he adds. “You brought that to South Africa, you brought it to Amer­ica and we have suf­fered under Amer­i­can apartheid which you sanc­ti­fied by the Hamitic course…how dare you write us down as the hater when your life in Amer­ica, your life in Africa, your life in the Holy Land is one of seg­re­ga­tion, sep­a­ra­tion, hatred, mur­der, lying, and steal­ing land from the orig­i­nal Palestinians.”

Far­rakhan also makes bizarre alle­ga­tions of Jew­ish finan­cial con­trol of the United States by instruct­ing his lis­ten­ers to look for a hid­den Star of David on the back of the one-dollar bill (image above). He implies a con­nec­tion between this Jew­ish sym­bol and the Satanic sym­bol of 666: “the Star of David, 6 angles, 6 sides, of 60 degrees. Who are you?”
