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.
