Look, I’m all for free speech, mainly because it outs the racists and bigots so I know who to avoid.
But Louis Farrakhan’s racist and anti-Semitic views came out a long time ago and he needs to go away.
Fox’s streaming black-oriented channel Soul TV caused outrage a few days ago when it announced it would stream Farrakhan on July 4th of all days.
Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt and CNN anchor Jake Tapper, who is Jewish, slammed the decision on Twitter.
Rapper Ice Cube, who also has a history of tweeting anti-Semitism and conspiracy theories, threatened Tapper.
Louis Farrakhan, a notorious #antisemite & #homophobe, inexplicably continues to get airtime. He repeatedly elevates hateful conspiracies. He has called Jews “termites” and the #LGBTQ+ community “degenerates.” He deserves condemnation, not exposure. pic.twitter.com/ab6S1fmhoO

Farrakhan is a vile anti-LGBTQ anti-Semitic misogynist. Why is a Fox channel airing his propaganda? https://t.co/dmX7A6LSd2

Legal Insurrection has documented Farrakhan’s hatred so many times. Here are a few examples:
- Farrakhan: ‘The Wicked Jews Want to Use Me to Break up the Women’s Movement’
- Farrakhan denies chanting Death to America and Israel while in Iran, but his denial is laughable
- Louis Farrakhan Visits Iran, calls for ‘Death to America’ and ‘Death to Israel’
Soul TV changed its Independence Day programming to show “the most powerful speeches from the greatest black leaders and thinkers about racial relations and civil rights in America.”

I mean, the man does not hide his hatred towards Jews, white people, gays, transgendered people, etc:
During a speech at Washington, D.C.’s Watergate Hotel in November 2017, Farrakhan told his audience that the Jews who “owned a lot of plantations” were responsible for undermining black emancipation after the Civil War. He also endorsed the second volume of the anti-Semitic book, “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews,” which blames Jews for promoting a myth of black racial inferiority and makes conspiratorial accusations about Jewish involvement in slave trade and the cotton, textiles, and banking industries. Farrakhan believes this book should be taught in schools.
Then he told people to stop calling him an anti-Semite because he’s “anti-termite.” He called Adolf Hitler a great man.
He uses the term “Satanic Jew” in so many speeches. Jews control the government! Jews control the banks! Jews control Hollywood! Jews have normalized deviant behavior!
It looks like those who follow him hold those same views. Some could not believe Soul TV would cave to “Jewish pressure.”
How the hell can a TV station say they’re in support of black folks yet cancel @LouisFarrakhan who’s the ONLY black leader with a consistent track record of uplifting the masses of our people for over 50yrs? You all caved in to Jewish pressure like cowards. Smh.

NO channel that capitulates to anti-Black Zionist pressure against Minister Farrakhan is worth any viewing time by Black people. Proof that this “Soul” channel doesn’t have any soul and doesn’t have any Black people calling the shots.

They call us antisemitic when we say Jews control the media. Well what the hell is this?
