America’s Black David Duke has a grandson in Nike’s elite basketball camp. But instead of derision, the obsequious sports press is celebrating.
The Nation of Islam’s loony leader, Louis Farrakhan, loves lecturing Black America not to become pro athletes or entertainers, but instead to pull themselves up by the bootstraps . . . and hate Jews, Asians, Arabs, “Crackers,” and every other group possible.
(No big deal that he, himself, made his millions not from bootstrap-pulling, but by tax scams, bilking and scamming his followers, and a few unrepaid $5 million “loans” from fellow loon, Libyan leader Muammar Ghaddafi.)
Now, there is a Black American and Nation of Islam member who has not taken Calypso Louie’s advice: his grandson, Mustapha Farrakhan.
Along with the son of Michael Jordan, Mustapha Farrakhan, a college and NBA hopeful, is attending Nike basketball camp, where he is being eyed by a handful of college scouts.
Since his father, also named Mustapha Farrakhan, is a “Supreme Captain” of the Nation of Islam, it’s a sure bet grandson Mustapha hates Jews and “Crackers” just like dear old granddaddy.
In an issue of the Nation of Islam’s newspaper, “The Final Call,” Louis Farrakhan says that his son Mustapha (father of the hoops player) supports the establishment of the United States of Africa in place of the America:
In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
I, my son and Supreme Captain, Mustapha Farrakhan, Akbar Muhammad, Sultan Muhammad, and my daughter and nurse, Fatima Farrakhan Muhammad were among those who were blessed to be present at the end of the 38 years of the Organization of African Unity (OAU), and, to witness the beginning or the birth of the African Union toward the ultimate United States of Africa. . . .
May Allah bless the Leaders of the African Continent. May He bless Brother Muammar Gadhafi that he will not be discouraged in pursuing the idea of the United States of Africa to its ultimate conclusion, and, may Allah bless the sons and daughters of Africa to form a united front wherever we are found to encourage the African Union to ultimately become the United States of Africa.
Don’t expect the gushing press to ask him about those views or whether he agrees with the anti-Semitic, anti-White bigotry of dear old dad. They didn’t. The sports press just fawned over his “celebrity” family ties. They’d hate to cause an issue for members of the many ethnic groups his grandfather openly derides. There’s no New York Times-style “public’s right to know” ethos here.
Instead, AP’s Michael Marot reports to us that Mustapha Farrakhan “likes sports and music. He attends church each Sunday and avoids controversy.” Memo to clueless AP reporter Marot: Uh, that would be a mosque, actually. As far as controversy, it’s hard to avoid it when your dad and granddad are America’s Black grand wizards.
And AP reporter Marot seems not to notice. Instead, his report contains only comments like these:
“I think he’s developed the right way under the circumstances,” the father said. “Basketball-wise, he’s focused on that and stays away from politics, and that’s good for him.”
Are hatred of and conspiracy theories against Jews and White people mere “politics”? Would they let a son of David Duke or an officer of the Klan get away with comments like that? The man making these comments is a “Supreme Captain” in a ministry of hate.
Yet, he’s allowed to make comments about the Farrakhan name that go absolutely unchallenged:
“We’ve always taught that a good name is better than silver or gold so anything you do as a service to your community or humanity makes your name stronger,” the father said. “You try not to do anything that would damage your name.”
But the Farrakhan name is already damaged. Louis Farrakhan has done more than damage his name, but also the names of the many millions of people he’s defamed and slandered to Black America, in the name of his phony bootstrap philosophy partnered with Black supremacy.
The elite basketball camp is called Nike All-America Camp. But there’s nothing All-American about the Farrakhan brand of hate.
Nor is there much American about Michael Marot, the dizzy AP sports reporter who deliberately glosses over the real story at hand.
Because Marot failed to ask it, the question remains about Mustapha Farrakhan:
Like grandfather, like grandson?
