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.

In First Appearance After Heart Attack, Farrakhan Continues Anti-Semitism

Nation of Islam (NOI) leader Louis Farrakhan’s first pub­lic appear­ance after suf­fer­ing a heart attack fea­tured a num­ber of anti-Semitic claims about Jew­ish con­trol over the Amer­i­can gov­ern­ment, Black orga­ni­za­tions and other sectors.farrakhan-indiana-heart-attack

Dur­ing his Decem­ber 1 speech at the Indi­ana Con­ven­tion Cen­ter in Indi­anapo­lis, Far­rakhan revealed he was hos­pi­tal­ized approx­i­mately two months ago due to a heart attack. When Far­rakhan was unable to deliver his 2013 Holy Day of Atone­ment speech in Alabama in Octo­ber, the NOI orig­i­nally said he was hos­pi­tal­ized for “an infection.”

In his speech, Far­rakhan bluntly stated his the­ory about who con­trols the U.S. gov­ern­ment: “…we’re gonna bring you up to speed. The Amer­i­can gov­ern­ment is under con­trol of the Zion­ists.” Far­rakhan went on to claim that the Jew­ish com­mu­nity has power over the NOI and other Black orga­ni­za­tions. “It’s not that I’m against the Jew­ish peo­ple. That’s just false…They have such power and influ­ence that they made most of you believe that I’m against the Jew­ish people.”

He made sim­i­lar claims about the NAACP, stat­ing “You mem­bers of the NAACP, you want to put on a march to Wash­ing­ton but you don’t have no money, so who do you go to? You go to phil­an­thropists, many of them are Jew­ish.” He con­tin­ued, “They tell you who you can have speak­ing. And they told you don’t have Far­rakhan. And you couldn’t say a damn thing because it wasn’t your money it was theirs.”

Far­rakhan also described send­ing a copy of the NOI’s anti-Semitic book, The Secret Rela­tion­ship between Blacks and Jews, which alleges dis­pro­por­tion­ate Jew­ish involve­ment in the slave trade, to the “pres­i­dents of all the major Jew­ish orga­ni­za­tions” as well as some Jew­ish pub­lic offi­cials. This is not the first time Far­rakhan has done so. The let­ter stated that the pur­pose of send­ing the book was to appeal to Jews who are “sit­ting on top of the world in power with riches and influ­ence while the masses of my people…are in the worst con­di­tion of any mem­ber of the human fam­ily” to con­vince them to repair the “dam­age that has been done by your ances­tors to mine.”

The crowd applauded as Far­rakhan read the last line of the let­ter which claimed that if the Jews do not “make the wise and best choice,” that God “will bring you and your peo­ple to dis­grace and ruin and destroy your power and influ­ence here in Amer­ica and through­out the world.”

Also in the ser­mon, Far­rakhan com­pared the Jews of today to those of Jesus’ time, claim­ing both had dis­pro­por­tion­ate influ­ence over the gov­ern­ment. “Did you know the Jesus had a real prob­lem with the Jew­ish com­mu­nity? They had power, the rab­bis of that day, over the Roman author­i­ties just as they have power today over our gov­ern­ment,” he alleged.noi-rg-9-11-israel-tweet

Farrakhan’s bla­tantly anti-Semitic pub­lic state­ments are just one part of the NOI’s larger anti-Jewish pro­pa­ganda cam­paign. The NOI Research Group (NOIRG), which cre­ated a web­site in 2012 that pro­motes vir­u­lently anti-Semitic con­spir­acy the­o­ries, tweeted and posted on Face­book a num­ber of times that Israel was behind 9/11, includ­ing most recently (Decem­ber 3) post­ing that “#Israel has an ugly his­tory of deadly false flag oper­a­tions, includ­ing 9/11….”
