Congressional Black Caucus Member Shocked to Discover Farrakhan Speech He Was Nodding to was Anti-Semitic and Racist


renault

You can sympathize with John Conyers, the longest serving member of the House of Representatives and a founding member of the Congressional Black Caucus, who came to hear some inspirational words of wisdom from notoriously inspiring figure Louis Farrakhan, only to discover,  a week later, to his shock and surprise, that the speech he was approvingly nodding to was really racist.

Conyers, who attended Farrakhan’s speech Friday night at Fellowship Chapel, issued a strong statement that distanced himself from the Nation of Islam leader’s remarks, which were blasted earlier this week by a Jewish civil rights group and others.

“Farrakhan made unacceptable racist, anti-Semitic and homophobic statements, which I condemn in the strongest possible terms,” Conyers said. “It was my expectation that Minister Farrakhan’s speech would focus on the many challenges facing the city of Detroit. In previous days, he had discussed efforts to revitalize our city by purchasing property and investing in blighted neighborhoods. Regrettably, he used this opportunity to promote views that have no place in civilized discourse.”

Shocking. Who would have thought that Farrakhan would spew hateful bigotry when given a big shiny podium, instead of dealing with the challenges facing Detroit. Like the challenge of the Racist White Jew bloodsuckers created by a Black Mad Scientist named Yakub who will return in his UFO to banish the white beast-men from the earth… as Nation of Islam doctrine states.

According to the Detroit Free Press,“Conyers and Watson nodded in agreement during some of Farrakhan’s remarks”; however, the paper did not specify during which parts of the speech they nodded.

Was John Conyers nodding during the part where

1. Farrakhan defended former Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick who may have been involved in the murder of a stripper

2. Farrakhan criticized Obama for surrounding himself with “Satan…members of the Jewish community.”

3. Told black people that they need to buy up Detroit before the Mexicans and the Arabs get it all

But it’s only natural that Congressman John Conyers would be utterly shocked that Louis Farrakhan would say horrible bigoted things in an appearance that was preceded by him saying on the radio of white people, “Genetically, you are inferior. … We can wipe you off the Earth just cohabiting with you and that’s why your population is going down.”

Rev. David Bul­lock of Greater St. Matthew Bap­tist Church stated that Farrakhan’s mes­sage was “impact­ful,” “timely,” and left him “inspired.”

Imam Mubarak Al-Mubarak of Warithud­din Mohammed Mosque said “Many are afraid of truth, and the Min­is­ter is more dynamic, more impor­tant, and rel­e­vant than we could ever imagine.”

You know, I hear the Tea Party is really racist.

    I'm shocked, SHOCKED I tell you!

    • Kevin Stowell

      Ha ha. Yeeaaahhhhh, aren't we all? Who woulda thought Conyers would sit still for something like that? These people are just becoming downright surreal.

        • Kevin Stowell

          I believe she is. Wasn't she on the Detroit City Council or something like that? Busted for some kinda financial malfeasance as I recall.

          Recently released.

            Must have been a racist jury.

    • AnOrdinaryMan

      So why did Conyers go in the first place? Makes you realize, in an oblique way, who Barack Obama really is.(From all those Sundays at lil' Rev. Jeremy's Trinity church)

      • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

        And the media pretends nothing is wrong with this picture….
        Goebbels would be proud.

      • Mary Sue

        Conyers has some splainin' to do…was he even paying attention the first time?!

  • UCSPanther

    Why do people even listen to idiots like Farrakhan?

  • Sound&Fury

    Sounds like someone else who sat in the pews for 20 years, but never heard his pastor say anything racist.

    As for Detroit, everyone knows that the reason for all its problem are the JOOOS. Right, Louie?

  • no name

    Ever notice the similarities between black ghetto culture and muslim culture? You can thank Elijah Muhammed, Louis Farrakhan, Malcolm X, and the other muslim so-called "civil rights activist" who instilled islamic ideology into black culture. Such as believing Whites (infidels) owe them a living, and rioting over every little thing that offends them. Unfortunately I don't thinks most blacks including Conyers know they've been indoctrinated with islam.

    • Indioviejo

      American black Muslims conveniently forget that the middle passage originated from the Islamic potentates in Africa, and that the Koran condones slavery out hand. Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam is nothing more than an ideology to serve themselves.

      • Robert M.

        Black Muslims in America haven’t forgot anything. Farrakhan is reminding us of who our oppresses are and continue to be. Just as there are hypocrites in all religions, there were some who use Islam as a shield for unIslamic behavior. Secondly, slavery or that ‘peculiar institution’ that America called slavery, is not comparable to slavery in Africa. In the Qur’an slavery was means of settling a debt. The slave still had the rights of a human being and was set free once the debt was repaid. We, as Black people, did not and do not owe this country anything. America is rich because of our 310 years of free labor, sweat and blood, and the only thanks we get is to be accused of “hate” and “racism” when we discuss our “Holocaust” and the liars beneficiaries who claim innocence while pointing the finger everywhere else.

        • Indioviejo

          Black Muslims are the epitome of resentment. For your information and knowledge, and so you don't seem so stupid in the future, slavery has been with humanity from the very beginning. Abd is the Arabic name for slave. Slavery is in the immutable Koran. Mohammed himself not only raped and plundered, murdered and was a pedophiliac, but he had slaves, sold slaves to fund his Jihad campaign and made it the center of his attention. Ever since Mohammed invented his satanic cult, Muslim sold over 125 million black Africans to the world. Muslim were responsible for the sale of black people in East Africa, in West Africa, and in the Mediterranean. Muslim behavior is so horrendous that they are still selling black Africans in the Sudan, Mali, Chad, and anywhere else they can find a customer, but to people like you and Farrakhan, cowards all, it is easier to look the other way or your edifice of lies might come tumbling down. I have a lot more to say on your chosen topic but this is enough info for your head to grasp at this time.

  • Rianna Richards

    Preachers shouldn't say these horrible things from the podium; it's hypocritical.

  • Jim

    What was the meaning of the words "We shall overcome"?

    • Looking4Sanity

      Apparently it meant "kill whitey".

      • Kevin Stowell

        LOL Pretty much it.

  • Indioviejo

    Allen West called out the black congressional caucus for being the Communist cadre in Congress. Conyers is one of many racist traitors whom black America sends to represent their interest. By This they do send a clear message as to were they stand regarding Freedom, Democracy, American Values, etc. Louis Farrakhan is just a criminal racist waiting to inflict more damage on the rest of us.

    • Who' s Who

      Barack Obama is another criminal racist inflicting damage on the rest of us every day.

  • ElizabethMC

    These people are as dumb as a bag of hammers. Do these democrats not know that farrakhan is a hateful, anti Semitic racist?

    • Johnconrad

      They don't care

      • Looking4Sanity

        Truly so.

    • Kevin Stowell

      The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Wait 'til they try to fire these Muzzies after they perceive the Muzzies to have outlived their usefulness. That will be interesting.

  • Smote

    Don't laugh at Farrakhan! Don't laugh at all! I'm serious. People laughed at Hitler and look what happened!

    Denounce, but do NOT laugh and dismiss! Farrakhan has a plan, which he and his ilk will try to implement. Actually, there at it as I write this and you read this.

    Laugh at a silly man, but take a crazy man seriously.

    • Twin Diseases

      Obama and Farrakhan, what's the difference?

      There ain't none. None whatsoever. Racists.

    • Robert M.

      I certainly agree that Farrakhan is not one to be mocked or laughed at. In fact, if the government and people of America would listen to him, instead of listening to his detractors who modify and interpret his words for their own ends, this country would be better off. The Hitler comparisons are misplaced and show an ignorance of historical events. I’m no expert, but from what I understand Hitler led a majority group against an unpopular minority from a position of governmental power. Minister Farrakhan warns and offers guidance to a government and it’s people who have historically murdered and mistreated his people. That Hitler shoe may fit some of America’s wicked policy makers, but certainly not the foot of Farrakhan!

  • BS77

    Nothing new here…nothing to see….just move along folks. Another moron with a microphone.

  • 1959kn

    A white guy posts a video on facebook about Muslims and Obama has him put in prison yet this racist titsun goes around the country condoning murder and violence and the pussie POTUS says nothing.

    • Mr. Onomatopoeia

      Pussie POTUS and Flatulent Farrakhan, same difference

  • Christopher Riddle

    Well,that seems perfectly believable to me when you remember that(while he spent over 20-years listening to The Rev.Jeremiah Wright spew Hate_Speech against America),Obongo never heard a word of it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • What's in a name

    Congressional Black Crackers is more like it.

  • Lan Astaslem

    If obamao had a dad, he'd look like farakhan

  • Fred

    Farakhan has also "announced" that HE IS Jesus Christ. False Prophet, or Pagan. I say BOTH.

  • Brujo Blanco

    There are those that tolerate blacks being racists but will not tolerate whites being racist. Racial hatred is misbehavior regardless of who is doing it.

  • mlcblog

    What shocks me is that Conyers actually had a wakeup call, at least for the few moments it took for him to issue this statement. I never thought I'd see the day.

  • Peace Keeper

    Peace. Did any of you guys and gals even listen to the speech and make you own assessment before passing judgment? In a free society, with free of speech, should not intelligent people first, listen to opposite point of views and then give sound feedback? I am just asking questions! The print media and the press uses excerpts and one liners tgo make their cases. Should not an intelligent person, review the entire speech or writing then make a sound decision? I am just asking a few questions. At the end of the day, you may still hold on to your view point however you have the other person full view before you write or speak.

    • Pastor Keith

      Amen to open dialogue and reaching your own conclusion after hearing both sides. Clean Water and Mud look the same all over the earth…Your questions will force some down the painful process of thinking on their own….I pray they will take the journey!!!

  • Danan Muhammad

    It took a week for Mr. Conyers Plantation Bosses to force Him to Apologize and denounce Minister Farrakhan. Plantation Politics is when your slave master (Or Their Children) tell you who to like and who to denounce. He isnt allowed to receive Jewish money and support Minister Farrakhan. Mr. Conyers is just hedging his political bets.

  • Danan Muhammad

    Its as if whites want blacks to denounce Minister Farrakhan without presenting the facts to justify it. We deserve to know what "Specifically". I realize you say he is all of these hateful things, however, quoting him in context, and then explaining how that is false or misinterpreted, would be the approach to appealing to any intelligent people. But to offer insults and opinions, and then expect Us to go along with you, as if any of you really give a damn about inner city blacks. You insult me and degrade me when you offer opinions and pre-coined phrases to insult someone I love and admire. You could reason with me, But you have to stop talking to Us like we are your slaves.

    • SultanTouma

      Adult followers, admirers and sycophants of Farrakhan deserve nothing in the way of explanation. Any further context, nuance, demonstrative proof or evidence of his irredeemable race hatred and cynical peddling of a huckster form of bida, would simply be wasted. There is always some yammering about the context, or the 300 400 600 or sixty zillion years of slavery that Arab traders had nothing to do with, or how Malcolm was killed by a cointel engineered zombie Crispus Attucks.

      If you love and admire this man you should feel insulted. All followers of racists should feel insulted when their racist idols are derided and subjected to calumny. You shouldn't feel degraded by such bitter criticism, you should feel degraded by your reaction to it. This isn't due to your race, Farrakhan has white supporters and admirers as well, they probably feel the same.

      I'll give him one thing: as a racist mythology salesman he has no peer. He could smell a city full of angry people ripe for an ideological crutch all the way from Chicago.

  • Robert

    Interesting commentary. I was there for the speech and found the Minister’s words to be very forthright and sincere. The negative responses coming from those who are consistent enemies of anyone who speaks with strength concerning the suffering of the Black community, doesn’t surprise. The fact that they continue to evade his ACTUAL arguments and choose instead to develop ‘straw man’ fallacies and ‘ad hominem’ attacks, shows that it is not Farrakhan who is ‘spewing’ hate. Listen to the actual speech and then compare to defamatory articles like this one(not to mention the ignorant comments it evokes) then tell me who the real “hater” is.

  • rachelle bowden

    IT funny i've never seen any white leaders denounce filthy rap,or dirty cops,or blacks killing blacks,but when you see someone like minister farrakhan come to his own people to teach truth,it scare the mess out of you, and you want to speak about it.what are you teaching us that will change our condition.if farrakhan is destroying us so what,thats what you've done.you are saying what you are suppose to say to a man of GOD,you are like your father SATAN.and you will never face him because he will melt you like hot wax.as long as we are destroying are selves you are not concern…get behind him satan your days are numberded.

    • SultanTouma

      If you really have not seen any white leaders condemning any of those things, you are confessing to an ignorance so profound, so comprehensive and enveloping, that it boggles the mind. You would be an absolute, made-to-order godsend to any cult leader.
