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.

#AskFarrakhan Town Hall Meeting Features Anti-Jewish Conspiracy Theories

On Sep­tem­ber 26, Nation of Islam (NOI) leader Louis Far­rakhan held a town hall style meet­ing in which he pro­moted anti-Semitic con­spir­acy the­o­ries about sup­posed Jew­ish polit­i­cal con­trol in Amer­ica and Jew­ish manip­u­la­tion of the Black community.

When asked by an indi­vid­ual par­tic­i­pat­ing in the meet­ing online if Amer­ica will “be forced to go to war with Iran,” Far­rakhan went into a rant about how pres­i­dents who “resist Israeli pres­sure… do not get away with it.” He con­tin­ued, “When you don’t vote the way they think you should vote, there’s no such thing as for­give­ness. They move to unseat you. Cyn­thia McK­in­ney, bril­liant sis­ter but she was not pro-Zionist, well she’s not in Con­gress… once you take an oppos­ing posi­tion, you have to pay a price.”

He then said that the Mon­ica Lewin­sky scan­dal was some­how a Jew­ish plot. “Bill Clin­ton refused to meet with an Israeli Prime Min­is­ter. The next thing you heard was Mon­ica Lewin­sky and all of those that were involved in scan­dal­iz­ing Bill Clin­ton, they hap­pened to be Zionists.”

Far­rakhan made it clear that he still blames Jews for what he per­ceives as a frag­mented Black com­mu­nity. “No Black artist becomes rich with­out hav­ing a friend­ship with the Jew­ish com­mu­nity.” He then noted that in order to keep Black role mod­els away from the NOI, Jews “make the world think I’m an enemy of Jew­ish peo­ple.” How­ever, he cred­ited Kanye West, a well-known rap­per, for mak­ing it pos­si­ble for a stu­dent group to attend the town hall meeting.

Dur­ing his remarks, Far­rakhan also men­tioned an Iranian-government spon­sored din­ner he attended in New York the pre­vi­ous day on the side­lines of the United Nations Gen­eral Assem­bly open­ing. This meet­ing between rep­re­sen­ta­tives of var­i­ous faith-based com­mu­ni­ties and Iran­ian Pres­i­dent Mah­moud Ahmadine­jad  fea­tured a keynote speech in which Ahmadine­jad denounced America’s poli­cies on Iran’s nuclear pro­gram and blamed the anti-Islam film, Inno­cence of Mus­lims, on Zion­ists even though that has been clearly proved to be a lie.

When Far­rakhan was asked at his town hall meet­ing “Why is it that you seem to be friends with every­one that Amer­ica hates such as Cas­tro, Qaddafi and Ahmadine­jad?” Far­rakhan responded, “Evi­dently, America’s on the wrong side of his­tory. I’m a friend of those who fight to deliver the masses from oppression…So I’m in good com­pany.” Far­rakhan also attended a meet­ing with Ahmadine­jad in 2010.
