The Jooooooo Menace

Louis Farrakhan speaks:

It's been nearly a month since Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan blamed "Zionists and neo-cons" for "manipulating" President Bush into invading Iraq - before blasting "wicked Jews" in Hollywood for promoting "lesbianism [and] homosexuality."

Ang Lee is a Zionist tool?

"These false Jews promote the filth of Hollywood that is seeding the American people and the people of the world and bringing you down in moral strength ... It's the wicked Jews the false Jews that are promoting lesbianism, homosexuality. It's wicked Jews, false Jews that make it a crime for you to preach the word of God, then they call you homophobic!"

False Jews? What's a real Jew?

"And the Christian right, with your blindness to that wicked state of Israel ... can that be the holy land, and you have gay parades, and want to permit to have a gay parade in Jerusalem when no prophet ever sanctioned that behavior. How can that be the Israel, how can that be Jerusalem with secular people running the holy land when it should be the holy people running the holy land. That land is gonna be cleansed with blood."

Actually, a lot of Christians and Jews oppose gay parades in Jerusalem.

The Christian Right supports the legitimacy of the Israeli state. It also supports the legitimacy of our own nation's existence - but that doesn't mean it can't be critical of domestic cultural trends (including gay activism and Nation of Islam).

Farrakhan does have a legitimate complaint about "speech crimes" that criminalize criticism of homosexuality and/or homosexuals. Such laws exist in nations like Britain, France, and Canada, and at one time at the University of Michigan. But he should be pointing fingers at the radical Left, not the "false Jews." Maybe Farrakhan believes all those foreign parliaments are under Zionist control. It wouldn't surprise me.
