It’s not easy to forget that cold day in November 1998, when I heard Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan speak to about 2,000 Muslims–mostly Arabs–at the Islamic Center of America (North America’s largest mosque). (I wrote about it in The Detroit Newsistan and mentioned it in the Wall Street Journal.)
It was no different than any other Hitler rally. They eagerly drank up his shrieking, ranting, and raving about the “forces of Satan, the Zionists.” They joined him in his shouting about how we evil Zionist Jews control the government–the figure he used was that 48% of government jobs were occupied by these Satanic Jews. He called for a jihad on America, saying America needed to be frightened this way to “waken up.” He said a number of other equally absurd and dangerous things, including, “Saddam Hussein–his people seem to love him,” to this group of thousands of Jew-hating Shi’ites who fled Hussein, who didn’t object to this misstatement because they shared in his wish for the elimination of Jews and Christians from America.
So, it is in the spirit of those “kind” words, that I read news stories over the weekend of Minister Farrakhan’s impending “Final Call.” In a letter to followers, Louis Eugene Walcott a/k/a Louis X a/k/a Louis Farrakhan a/k/a Calypso Louis said he was “suffering pain like that he had felt in 1998 when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer,” and his words indicated that he felt his end was near.
This time, apparently, even the skilled “evil Zionist” (a/k/a Jewish) surgeon who operated on Farrakhan and masterfully saved his life in 1998, can’t keep him alive. You know, the same kind of doctor Farrakhan and his followers accused of infecting Black babies with AIDS. No, this time, no Jew doctor, and not even Allah, himself, can save the man who spread hate throughout Black America like no other figure in U.S. history. This time, millions in “loans” from Muammar Qaddafi and millions in unpaid federal income taxes won’t save him.
More from BBC:
He revealed his health problems in a letter on Friday to Nation of Islam members in its newspaper, the Final Call, in which he compared his health problems to those of Fidel Castro.
The letter, also published on Nation of Islam’s website, goes into graphic detail about his fight against “serious pain”.
He announces that he is “postponing indefinitely all engagements, meetings and appointments”.
“In this period of testing, you can prove to the world that the Nation of Islam is more than the charisma, eloquence and personality of Louis Farrakhan,” he said.
Well, no-one ever accused Louis X of not having an ego.
When I was in grad school at the University of Wisconsin, one of my friends was Christine, a next-door neighbor of Farrakhan in the multi-million dollar neighborhood of Chicago’s Hyde Park. Christine’s father is a Black South African, her mother a White Jewish American. Although their’s was a loving family, Christine and her siblings had to endure the crazy rantings spewed their way from Farrakhan and his children on a regular basis–calling them half-breed children of Satan.
Now, Farrakhan is feeling the pain that Christine and her family had to endure from him–their crazy, racist neighbor. I only wish that upon his passing, there is an endless feud between the followers and no single successor takes his place to spew his endless racism and hate. As I’ve written, unfortunately his son, Mustapha Farrakhan, will probably take his place. But his grandson, also named Mustapha Farrakhan, as I’ve also written, is headed for a pro basketball career and has already starred at Nike basketball camp. He, too, unfortunately, has been schooled in the hatred of his grandfather.
The wicked Black Nazi loon is almost gone. I, for one, will shed no tears when his soul–if he, in fact, possesses one–leaves this world. But I’m still waiting for that spaceship he claims is manned by Black beings superior to us all and from whom he emanated.
Apparently, the mother ship–if it ever returns to Planet Earth–will have to leave without Louis Farrakhan, soon to meet his maker for a well-deserved just “reward.” Unless its inhabitants look for the grave that should bear the epitaph: Here lies a demagogue racist who tried to bring Black America–and everyone else–down.
More on Farrakhan here, here, here, and here.
