Quickly realizing that it had a public relations disaster on its hands, Netflix has backed off of airing a documentary on Minister Louis Farrakhan.
The streaming video giant and nexus of far-left propaganda found itself in an awkward spot when word spread that the movie “The Honourable Minister Louis Farrakhan: My Life’s Journey Through Music” was set to debut in August.
Farrakhan has a long history of incendiary anti-Semitic demagoguery and believes that Jews are the spawn of Satan. He has also made it clear that he admires Adolf Hitler.
The home of Barack and Michelle Obama’s upcoming series of propaganda vehicles panicked and issued a statement saying that the Farrakhan movie would NOT be aired.
Netflix called it a “communication error” and downplayed it as an honest mistake.
Yeah, and the moon is made out of green cheese.
It’s likely that the suits at Netflix quickly realized that they had a problem when Farrakhan himself took to social media to plug Netflix’s curious choice of programming.
He has now deleted the tweet but not before it was preserved for posterity.
That Farrakhan’s special ended up on Netflix isn’t exactly a shock, especially now that Susan Rice and the Obamas are in the house and that raunchy bitch Michelle Wolf is one of their stars. It was surprising that they would move to remove it but then again, Minister Farrakhan is a highly controversial figure outside of the Women’s March and the Congressional Black Caucus.

Via The Hollywood Reporter, “Netflix Will Not Stream Controversial Louis Farrakhan Documentary”:
Netflix does not plan to stream a documentary about Louis Farrakhan, the black nationalist leader who heads the Nation of Islam and who has been branded as anti-Semitic by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
The film, listed under the title The Honourable Minister Louis Farrakhan: My Life’s Journey Through Music, appeared on some published lists of upcoming programming debuting in August on the streamer.
On his Twitter feed Monday, Farrakhan posted, “On August 1st, watch the premiere of my music documentary “My Life’s Journey Through Music” on @netflix.”
But on Tuesday, as the doc began to attract criticism, a Netflix spokesman issued a statement saying, “This film will not be released on Netflix. Due to an internal miscommunication, it appeared to be scheduled for release on Netflix, but it is not. We apologize for any confusion this has caused.”
A Netflix screening would have coincided with the release of $250 seven-CD boxed set of music, called Let’s Changed the World, that Farrakhan is promoting as a fund-raiser to help further promote his teachings.
Following Farrakhan’s own tweets about the film, other websites began picking up on the airing, with, for example, the National Review leading off a story by writing, “Netflix will begin offering a film chronicling the life of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan on August 1 despite the activist’s penchant for resorting to anti-semitic and anti-gay slurs.”
For those who are saddened that Netflix reversed course, Farrakhan is hawking the product on social media.
