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.”
