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?”

Detroit Religious Leaders Praise Farrakhan After Latest Anti-Semitic Outburst

Update: One day after 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.”

Nation of Islam (NOI) leader Louis Farrakhan was welcomed and praised by religious leaders after promoting his anti-Semitic worldview at a Detroit church last week.farrakhan-detroit-fellowship-chapel

During his visit to the city, Farrakhan was invited by Rev. Wendell Anthony, who is also the President of the Detroit branch of the NAACP, to address the Fellowship Chapel on May 17. His speech, which was attended by U.S. Rep. John Conyers and Detroit City Councilmember JoAnn Watson among others, invoked the type of egregious anti-Semitism that has marked him as a hatemonger for over three decades.

Farrakhan referred to “Satanic Jews” and the “Synagogue of Satan” controlling America’s government and other sectors, reportedly stating that President Barack Obama “surrounded himself with Satan…members of the Jewish community.”

Farrakhan also said that the Jewish people “have mastered the civilization now, but they’ve mastered it in evil… Who’s the owner of Hollywood that creates images and makes the people think that what is created on the screen is the way we should live? That’s Satan…Satan has devoured much of humanity.”

“The people that own Hollywood,” Farrakhan added, are “the same people that control your press, the same people that control your media, the same people who are the publishers the same people who are the distributors, the same Synagogue of Satan, and they put you before the world in this disgraceful matter.”

The NOI’s Newspaper The Final Call also paraphrased this part of Farrakhan’s speech thusly: “Jesus was the last hope for the Jewish people, but they rejected him. They are now in control of the media and the airwaves, gaining access to the ‘sacred territory’ which is the minds of the people.”

Instead of raising their voices to publicly reject Farrakhan’s anti-Semitism, some of the leadership in attendance at Fellowship Chapel publically praised him. According to The Final Call, Rev. Horace Sheffield, III of the New Destiny Baptist Church said, “We need someone to give us direction. I believe we have a leader here that can organize us.”

Sheffield also added, “They want to silence people who tell us the truth, and we know why this is happening and who is doing it, but we need some help with how to overcome it.”

Rev. David Bullock of Greater St. Matthew Baptist Church stated that Farrakhan’s message was “impactful,” “timely,” and left him “inspired.”

Imam Mubarak Al-Mubarak of Warithuddin Mohammed Mosque said that “This message that the Minister gave today with respect to the Christians and the pastors is the same message that the Muslims and imams of our association need to hear.”  Imam Al-Mubarak continued, “Many are afraid of truth, and the Minister is more dynamic, more important, and relevant than we could ever imagine.”

Farrakhan’s sermon at Fellowship Chapel echoes his 52-week lecture series titled “The Time and What Must Be Done.” In Part 18 (May 11), Farrakhan discussed his theory that Jews control the President of the United States, saying that Jews will “continue to press my brother as President of the United States to do something about me…President Obama, don’t listen to these hyenas and jackals that are in high places. You would be wise to follow the dictates of your conscience, if it has not been taken by Satan.”
