Idiotic Salon article raving about Jew-hating black supremacist Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan

Lord only knows what sort of paranoiac frenzy Glenn Beck would spiral into were he to discover this recent trend in hip-hop: Rappers are increasingly seeking the wisdom and counsel of Minister Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam. And not just the Muslim rappers you’d expect, like Lupe Fiasco or Mos Def; since the beginning of the year, superstar rappers like Kanye West, Young Jeezy and Killer Mike have all met with Farrakhan.

I can see Glenn Beck flying between multiple chalkboards, manically scrawling the connections proving the imminent danger of some coming caliphate. How had we not seen it all along?! ISIS HAS INFILTRATED THE MINDS OF OUR YOUTH THROUGH THEIR HIPPITY HOPPITY!

Beck would be wrong, as usual, to make the ominous links, but the trend does signify something of a shift in attitudes. Black Islam occupies a particular place in the civil rights struggle: Malcolm X’s “by any means” militancy versus Dr. King’s conciliatory nonviolence. The turn toward black Islam might indicate disappointment and an impatience with the lack of progress made during the Obama years…

    Gee, maybe Farrahkan can write for the Anglican Journal website. They have a glowing report on a meeting of Anglicans against the Christian Zionist movement.

      They’d likely welcome him.

  • Louis Farrakhan is just another black racist.

    But he does wear a snappy bow tie.

    Salon is one of the most despicable sites on the Internet. A cesspool of truly vile ideas and leftist hypocrisy.
