At the end of a 4-day Nation of Islam conference in Detroit, leader Louis Farrakhan laid out his plan for blacks to separate from a predominately white society that he feels is unjust. He called for blacks to set up their own justice system, told them all to move to Detroit, and threatened the government if they try to stop him.
Farrakhan is kind of like Malcolm X in a Pee Wee Herman outfit, but he sure knows how to get people’s attention with his inflammatory speech. No doubt referring to the George Zimmerman and Michael Dunn cases, the NOI leader called for a separate “blacks only” court system to deliver rulings favoring African Americans.
“We want equal justice under the law. Our people can’t take much more. We have to have our own courts. You failed us.”
So because two black men died at the hands of whitey (one justified, one not), there is rampant injustice for blacks in this country? What about the tens of thousands of whites, Asians, and Latinos that are raped, murdered, and assaulted by blacks every year? Will this new black-centric court system give justice to those victims?
It seems like I’ve heard Farrakhan’s separate but equal spiel before. I think there used to be this racial system in which blacks had their own bathrooms, drinking fountains, and schools. If my memory serves me correctly they were not real happy with being segregated. Why all of a sudden does this seem like a nifty idea? What would the response be if a white guy suggested that blacks have separate institutions and facilities?
Besides this nonsense, the Nation of Islam believes that blacks must separate themselves entirely from whites. The reason for this is not what you think. According to Farrakhan spokeswoman Ava Muhammad there is a big wheel in the sky full of planes that will destroy the non-believers. She said, “that African Americans needed to separate because eventually, planes are going to destroy every area that is not dominated by Islam.”
The NOI believes that separation of the races is needed to enhance the lives of black Americans. They called upon the Nation to migrate to Detroit in order to form their own separate community.
In a moment that seems to indicate Farrakhan is looking to take on “whitey” in armed conflict, he asked the crowd if America had been just to them. The crowd responded “no” and Farrakhan replied, “So … if we retaliate, you can bring out your soldiers. We got some, too.”
Farrakhan was on a roll so he also insulted Christians, gays, and Jews. He often put Jesus in the context of Islam, saying that Jesus and Mohammed would be “arm in arm.” He likened himself to Henry Ford and since Farrakhan didn’t event the assembly line, we are left to assume he is referring to Ford’s anti-Semitism. Lastly, he condemned gay marriage saying the Bible doesn’t allow it. Of course, Muslims don’t read the Bible so who knows what the f*ck he was talking about.
He also said, “Satan is in control of Hollywood.” What he should have said was that Hollywood is controlled by money-grubbing socialist whores that are trying to destroy American values. If Satan were in charge of the movie business, films would kick a lot more ass.
The sad thing is, most blacks in America are not Muslims, but they look to idiots like Farrakhan for leadership nonetheless. He, along with Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson are the ones blacks count on to lead them out of this supposed racist oppressive society. The only problem is, there is no racist oppressive society, so they have to stir things up and make it seem that way.
Even sadder is that this four-day long hate-whitey-fest didn’t get the same condemnation that a KKK rally or a gathering of the neo-Nazis would surely receive. In fact, prominent democrat politicians were by Farrakhan’s side, cheering his every race-baiting move. U.S. Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) and Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones flanked the Nation of Islam leader as he delivered his message of black power and black separation.
