Louis Farrakhan ‘Satanic Jews’ Speech Condemned by Michigan Congressman and ADL

Louis Farrakhan.

U.S. Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) apologized for anti-Semitic statements made by Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan in a speech Conyers had attended at a Detroit Baptist Church on May 17. Farrakhan had referred to “satanic Jews” and the “synagogue of satan,” and said that President Barack Obama “surrounded himself with Satan… members of the Jewish community.”

Conyers condemned the speech, saying in a statement, “It was my expectation that Minister Farrakhan’s speech would focus on the many challenges facing the city of Detroit… Regrettably, he used this opportunity to promote views that have no place in civilized discourse.”

“It is deeply disappointing that so many Detroit leaders are apparently so willing to turn a blind eye to Farrakhan’s anti-Semitism. Where are the voices in our community who are willing to stand up and say no to racism and anti-Semitism?” said Heidi Budaj, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) Detroit Regional Director, in a statement.

  • Greetings, I am 27 years disable military veteran. Let me enlighten those who think Minister Louis Farrakhan is Racist. Minister Louis Farrakhan isn’t a racist. He speaks truth to truth about this government. He didn’t have to served in the military to find the truth like I did about this government. I wish other black leaders would stop being cowards in tell the truth about this corrupt government. He is the only black leader in the 21st century bold enough hand has the courage to speak truth verses falsehood. When you speak truth to truth, you become a threat to white establishment that implement policies, laws, and regulations that governs people ways of life. Minister Louis Farrakhan is trying to raise the level of black people consciousness. My level of consciousness has been raise since 1981 regarding this government. I was subjected to Racism three times in my military career and I and glad to be out with the military. One thing I know for sure, I know who is running this country. You figure the rest out. If you are smart enough, you will and can.

  • By the way, if a white racist said something racist Conyers and the Congressional Black Caucus would drive that person out of Dodge. But when it comes to Farrascam, they’re either on vacation or are supportive of him. Maybe the IRS should do an audit of the Nation of Islam. I bet they got more dirt than any tea party, conservative, Christian or Jewish group put together.

      Minister Farrakhan is many things, but racist is not one of them. Rather, he is a realist. Because he does not depend on some Anglo Good-Will for his welfare and security, he is criticized by low level (non-professional) Anglos mesmerized by the recognized and bought and sold media propaganda, which looks at the historical legacy of African-Americans and wish everyone would just forget the injustice that was and continue to be done to Blacks. I took the time to write this comment, to inform the readers: (1)a large majority of both black and white people in the U.S. are literally asleep at the wheel and (2)it’s nothing but a waste of time to try and get through to them. To get real journalism on the issues African-Americans face send me a request for the frree African-American Informant News Letter(jamesgambles@yahoo.com); there you will get full essays on issues impacting the Black collective community. You must understand, The New World Order is closing in–for the very reason that so many Americans (black and white) are too busy being manipulated, oppressed and exploited to do anything else but work their entire lives until retirement when they come to realize they are victims of domination by one to two percent of the nation. Even if Farrakahn were racist, he is a member of descendants of slaves;that gives him and all African-Americans the right to protest against racism. All you sheep being led to the slaughter need to wake up and get informed.

  • Everybody knows that Louis Farrascam is frankly an all wout racist and anti Semite By the way, why would any Christian who should realize that Jesus Christ was Jewish, would be willing to deal with an IslamoNazi like Farrascam? He is no better than David Duke

  • E Pluribus Beagle

    What do you mean ‘turn a blind eye’. This is precisely what THEY believe and halfway what Obama believes.

  • Those so called leaders agree with with calypso Louie’s antisemitism. That is why they say nothing.

  • Eric R Muhammad

    How can a Semite be Anti-Semitic? The Ashkenazi “Jew” is a convert to Judaism. He is not a real “Jew”. The ADL since its establishment in 1913 have been labeling people falsely Anti- Semitic, who disagrees with its positions. No longer will we allow this to happen. Hands off Farrakhan! We call for a showdown against The ADL! Please will the Real Anti- Semite stand up?

  • David S. Most

    This man is a latter-day Adolph Hitler who has consistently mouthed his rabid anti-Semitism under the cloak of his ‘ministry’.

    He’s an example of the remaining haters in the USA who are tolerated in our free society. Sad but true!

  • Would that lack leaders, politicians, movie stars even basketball players stand up to this racist and state unequivocally: black people can not afford to hate, can not afford to look at other groups especially jews as level. Black leaders like Farrakhan are our nazis

  • Conyers, like most of the Congressional Black Caucus, are anti-Israel radical leftists, and a lot are frankly anti-Semitic.

    If he were not an anti-Semite, he would have boycotted the speech to begin with. Herr Conyers knew EXACTLY what to expect with that bowtied Islamonazi.

    Retired NBA player Keyon Dooling tweeted a link on Wednesday to a wildly antisemitic article that accuses Jews of seizing control of the world’s media and using it to promote their own interests.
