Celebs Promote Farrakhan’s ‘Powerful’ Comments on Race

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan is a virulent anti-Semite, homophobic, and racist, but that didn’t stop celebrities from using their platforms to promote him.

Comedian Chelsea Handler and actress Jessica Chastain recently shared a clip of one of his speeches from The Phil Donahue Show discussing racial prejudice.

“I learned a lot from watching this powerful video,” Handler wrote in sharing the video. Jennifer Aniston, Michelle Pfeiffer and Jennifer Garner were among the celebrities who liked it.

One woman asked why can’t “white people, black people, Jewish people” “come together.” Farrakhan responded by saying that “the desire is good” but that reality is the “total opposite.”

He accused the audience of viewing black Americans as “second-class or inferior citizens” and enforcing “black inferiority” by stripping their African culture dating back to slavery and pushed white culture onto them, citing “white names,” the English language, and “white Jesus” as examples.

Her, Comedian Chelsea Handler, followers who knew about Farrakhan’s past called her out for promoting him, but she continued to defend the controversial NOI leader.

“So, based on this logic, if you find a video of Hitler saying something positive and powerful, will you feel equally compelled to share it?” replied Instagram user cindyjh5. “You gave hate credibility and a large platform today.”

Added user socalmama94, “Farrakhan is a hateful anti Semite. He wears that label proudly. There are many others whose wisdom you could be sharing.

“This is disappointing Chelsea.”

Even after as the criticism poured in, however, Handler, 45, argued that Farrakhan’s hatred may have been justified by his own experiences on the receiving end of bigotry.

“Another thing: perhaps Farrakhan’s anti-Semitic views took form during his own oppression,” wrote Handler. “We know now that oppression of one race leads to an oppression of all races.” (New York Post)

Handler, who is Jewish, finally deleted the post and Chastain, who also shared it, did the same.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
