Louis Farrakhan’s 52 Weeks Of Hate

Update: In part 19 of Farrakhan’s lec­ture series, he char­ac­ter­izes the Jew­ish peo­ple as “Satanic” and instructs his lis­ten­ers to look for a hid­den Star of David on the back of the one-dollar bill.

Louis Farrakhan’s lat­est lec­ture series, launched in Jan­u­ary 2013, enables the Nation of Islam (NOI) leader to reach online audi­ences with his unique brand of racist and anti-Semitic con­spir­acy the­o­ries. While Far­rakhan con­tin­ues to pro­motes his hatred at large NOI events such as Sav­iours’ Day, the lec­ture series, titled “The Time and What Must Be Done,” is broad­cast online in weekly installments.

Far­rakhan has thus far pri­mar­ily focused the series on the impor­tance of NOI’s teach­ings as they con­tinue to be revealed to him, but he also spends a sig­nif­i­cant por­tion of each lec­ture proph­esy­ing the immi­nent down­fall of the United States and advis­ing Amer­ica to heed his warn­ings or face divine pun­ish­ment through severe weather, nat­ural dis­as­ters, and world wars. Addi­tion­ally, through­out the lec­ture series, Far­rakhan reit­er­ates his long-standing anti-Semitic ideology.

For exam­ple, Far­rakhan invokes anti-Semitic the­o­ries of Jew­ish con­trol over the Amer­i­can gov­ern­ment and dis­pro­por­tion­ate Jew­ish wealth and influ­ence in a recent install­ment on March 30 (part 12 of the series). In this lec­ture, he claims that “nobody becomes Pres­i­dent of the United States with­out going before Israel or AIPAC and promis­ing the Zion­ists every­thing that you think will allow you access to their wealth, their influ­ence, and their power.”

In part 11, Far­rakhan rants about Hol­ly­wood, which he describes as “know[ing] the Torah.” This descrip­tion is con­sis­tent with past state­ments Far­rakhan has made about Hol­ly­wood sup­pos­edly being con­trolled by Jews. He explains, “You are pro­mot­ing that which is against the will of God and you’re doing it pur­posely.” He then elab­o­rates on his belief that the “King­dom of God” will be taken from the Jews and given to “the Black man.” He cites this as the rea­son for Jews allegedly using their con­trol of Hol­ly­wood and other media to encour­age sin­ful behav­ior in the Black community:

You hate the fact that our rule is going to come whether you like it or not…You know this, so you want to feed us all the filth that we can eat, all the debauch­ery we can stand, so you are now bring­ing the pri­vacy of sex into pub­lic view in your movies, in your mag­a­zines, in your news­pa­pers. It’s all about sex….you are pro­mot­ing that which is against the com­mand­ments of God.”

Far­rakhan also makes con­spir­a­to­r­ial state­ments about what he per­ceives as Jew­ish con­trol of Hol­ly­wood in part 3. While not explic­itly men­tion­ing Jews, he claims that “those that own Hol­ly­wood” are writ­ing plots to encour­age a race war in Amer­ica, get­ting Black char­ac­ters to kill white char­ac­ters in movies “so that white peo­ple in Amer­ica who have these guns will start prepar­ing their minds for a race war.”

In part 9, Far­rakhan describes the Tal­mud as “part of the tricks and lies” used by Jews to “mas­ter the orig­i­nal peo­ple with that sys­tem of tricks and lies and unright­eous­ness.” He then claims that such state­ments are not anti-Semitism but rather truth, a truth that “exposes the lie, the liar, the deceit­ful one.”

Far­rakhan fre­quently dis­cusses race in the lec­ture series as well, call­ing on Amer­ica to give “mil­lions of acres of land” to Blacks so there can be “sep­a­ra­tion” between Blacks and whites. In part 4 he warns, “You’ll see the end [of the white race] by 2050. Sep­a­ra­tion will save you. Sep­a­ra­tion will give you more time as a white per­son on this earth.” In the same lec­ture, he accuses the Amer­i­can gov­ern­ment of hatch­ing a plan to kill “two to three bil­lion peo­ple on our planet,” ask­ing “Could this be why, in Africa, AIDS is slaugh­ter­ing black men and women, par­tic­u­larly in those areas where the min­eral resources of that area is nec­es­sary to keep Amer­i­can in power in this 21st cen­tury?” He then claims that the “same geno­ci­dal thought” of whites towards Blacks “will be against the Mex­i­cans and oth­ers as well.”
