I am not and have never been an enemy to America, nor the people of America. However, I love America enough to speak unpleasant truths that are in the best interests of an erring nation that perhaps she may change her conduct and course. I have an abiding love for the right to free speech, the right to a free press and the right every human being has to hear the truth. It is only truth spoken in season that can bring us what we desire of freedom, justice, equality and, ultimately, peace.
Self-proclaimed prophets are rarely right about their doomsday predictions so I wouldn’t worry too much about this. Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan says the end of the white man is nigh. Does this mean he’s ready to kill whitey or does he think Mohammad is going to do it for him? I’ve found that it’s not all that productive to try to figure out what Screwy Louie is talking about and more fun to just enjoy his racist brand of insanity.
An American political activist who publicly supports a U.S. religious leader known for his homophobic and anti-Semitic rhetoric is among the keynote speakers at the New Democrats’ biennial convention this weekend in Ottawa.
Before a crowded ballroom at the Watergate Hotel, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan called on President Trump to repent for what Farrakhan called America’s mistreatment of black people over the centuries.
“America is a great nation but America needs to reflect on her sins,” Farrakhan told a gaggle of reporters and hundreds of supporters who showed up Thursday (Nov. 16) for an event billed as “a major message” to the Trump administration.
Micah Johnson was a Facebook member of The Nation of Islam and Black Liberation Party, Obama’s old stomping grounds. Obama’s spiritual guru, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, is a fiery hate pastor in a Black Liberation church.
OAKLAND — A former Your Black Muslim Bakery associate still on probation for a 2013 conviction in a real-estate fraud scam was sentenced Friday to six months of home detention and a $2,000 fine for conspiring to commit passport fraud.
Jamall Joseph Delmore Robinson, 29, was indicted by a federal grand jury in December, was arrested in Los Angeles in January, then pleaded guilty in March. Prosecutors said that he and others lied to get him a baptismal certificate from an Oakland church; used that certificate to get a bogus birth certificate and driver’s license; then used those to seek a passport in the name of “Joseph Hovey Calhoun Jr.” in 2013…
…The now-defunct Your Black Muslim Bakery, based on San Pablo Avenue in North Oakland, long was thought to be a community organization that empowered young black men, but eventually it was exposed as part organized-crime family and part cult, with crimes from fraud to murder attributed to its many members…
Hundreds commemorated the 90th birthday of assassinated civil rights leader Malcolm X in New York on Tuesday.
His daughters Ilyasah, Malaak and Gamilah Shabazz were among those who attended the ceremony at the Shabazz Center, formerly known as the Audubon Ballroom, where the black Muslim activist was murdered in 1965.
A blue light shone onto the exact spot where he was gunned down while delivering a lecture.
The commemoration started with a moment of silence before a crowd of more than 250 people sang Lift Every Voice and Sing, often referred to as the Black American National Anthem…
…Initially a prominent figure in Elijah Muhammad’s Nation of Islam movement, Malcolm X broke away from the group in 1964 and embraced Sunni Islam, adopting the name el-Hajj Malik el-Shabazz.
Renouncing the separatist ideology of the Nation of Islam, he attempted to internationalize the plight of African-Americans and make common cause with the oppressed people of the world.
He was assassinated at the Audubon Ballroom in Harlem on Feb. 21, 1965. Three members of the Nation of Islam were convicted of the murder…
We’ve seen plenty of claims in recent days about the unrest in Baltimore. One that caught our attention was a tweet from an account associated with the Nation of Islam. It read, “#Baltimore police trained by Israel Mossad & Shin Bet. More planned.”
The Mossad is Israel’s foreign intelligence service and the Shin Bet is its internal counter-intelligence agency. They roughly correspond to the American CIA and FBI.
So, are the Mossad and Shin Bet working with Baltimore police? No...
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…
Photos shared on Twitter of yesterday’s protest in Baltimore over the death of Freddie Gray allegedly show members of the rival Bloods and Crips street gangs putting aside their differences and marching together:
The Anti-Defamation League said Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan confirmed his “status as the leading anti-Semite in America,” following a speech he gave this week in which he blamed Jews and Israelis for the deadliest terror attack in American history.
In a statement released Thursday, Abraham H. Foxman, ADL’s national director, said that Farrakhan was the “pied piper of bigotry” who has been able to “use and abuse his status as a religious leader with a large audience to obsessively harp on about perceived Jewish power and influence.”
“At a time when anti-Semitic attitudes are at historic lows, Farrakhan’s unabashed promotion of anti-Semitism is a throwback to the intolerance of another era,” Foxman said…
OAKLAND – A former member of the now-defunct ‘Your Black Muslim Bakery’ in Oakland was sentenced Friday to 20 years in prison for his role in the abduction and torture of two women seven years ago, a spokeswoman for the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office said.
Richard Lewis, a 30-year-old former football star at Mission High School in San Francisco, will be back in Alameda County Superior Court on Jan. 30 for the execution of his sentence, district attorney’s spokeswoman Teresa Drenick said.
Prosecutors said the May 17, 2007, crime was a bungled attempt to get money to save the bakery from bankruptcy, as it faced a foreclosure hearing four days later. The bakery did go bankrupt and closed its doors later that year.
Prosecutor Chris Lamiero alleged that Lewis, bakery leader Yusuf Bey IV and several other bakery associates kidnapped and tortured a mother and daughter to get them to reveal where a drug dealer they knew kept his money.
