Louis Farrakhan Delivers Speech Many Deem Anti-Semitic


Sophie Tatum from CNN: Politics reported on an allegedly anti-Semitic speech by Louis Farrakhan. Farrakhan has been the leader of the Nation of Islam since 1977.

Often, he is deemed rather extreme in his remarks, especially around Jewish people around the world. He has stated, “The Jews are my enemy.” Also, he has said, “White folks are going down. And Satan is going down. And Farrakhan, by God's grace, has pulled the cover off of that Satanic Jew and I'm here to say your time is up, your world is through.”

Tamika Mallory, a Women’s March Co-Chair, was in attendance at the time. The Southern Poverty Law Center describes Louis Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam a hate group with “deeply racist, anti-Semitic and anti-LGBT rhetoric.”

It often teaches, according to the reportage, black racial superiority. Rep. Keith Ellison has faced pressure in the past because of his ties with the Nation of Islam in the past. In previous years, Ellison had a relationship with the group for about ten years or more.

In December of 2016, Ellison spoke out and said that he “rejects all forms of anti-Semitism … the right wing has been pushing these stories for years to drive a wedge between Congressman Ellison and the Jewish community.”

When Ellison ran for the DNC Chair, the Anti-Defamation League and J-Street defended him.
