Marking the 23rd anniversary of the Million Man March and Holy Day of Atonement in Detroit, notorious anti-Semite and racist Reverend Louis Farrakhan boasted that he wasn’t an anti-Semite, but “anti-termite.”
Farrkhan began that particular segment of his speech calling the Jewish community and the white community “stupid.” He ranted:
White folk don’t like Farrakhan. Some of them respect me, but those who have been our deceivers, they can’t stand me. I’m not mad with you. In fact, to the members of the Jewish community that don’t like me, thank you very much for putting my name all over the planet. Because of your fear of what we represent, I can go anywhere in the world and they’ve heard of Farrakhan. Thank you very much. I’m not mad at you, ‘cuz you’re so stupid.
Farrakhan reminisced about his teacher:
Don’t you know, my teacher, Elijah Muhammad, taught me one day, he said, “There once was a donkey that fell in the ditch. And everybody came along, they picked up a stone and threw it at the donkey. They threw so many stones ‘til the ditch got filled up and the donkey walked out.” So my teacher said, “Brother, remember, every knock is a boost.”
Then Farrakhan claimed he didn’t hate anyone because of their religious preference:
So when they talk about Farrakhan, call me a hater, you know what they do, call me an anti-Semite, stop it. I’m anti-termite. I don’t know nothing about hating somebody because of their religious preference.
Farrakhan has likened the Jewish Star of David to sexual immorality; claimed the Jews run government agencies, asserting, “They [Israel and Jews] have been working for years to control your representatives in Congress, in the Senate, in the House of Representatives. They don’t fear America because they control it from within.” He announced he was here to announce the “end of your time” for Jews, and said Jews were responsible for the 9/11 attacks, saying, “It is now becoming apparent that there were many Israelis and Zionist Jews in key roles in the 9/11 attacks. Israelis had foreknowledge of the attacks … we know that many Jews received a text message not to come to work on September 11.” Farrakhan has called Judaism a “gutter religion.”
