'The Left' may have a problem. Outspoken anti-Trump-ers such as Linda Sarsour, Maxine Waters, and Barack Obama may soon have to distance themselves from supporting anti-semitic leader of the Nation of Islam movement, Louis Farrakhan.
"If Donald Trump becomes president, he will take America into the abyss of hell."
Appearing on Chicago radio station WGCI, on a program titled "The Morning Takeover," he stated that it may not have been the intent of this administration to help, but that Trump is destroying the enemies of the Nation of Islam. Included in this group are the Department of Justice and the FBI.
Farrakhan tweeted out a two-minute video of this sort-of endorsement of Trump:
Mr. Trump is destroying every enemy that was an enemy of our rise. Who is the enemy of our rise? Is it the Department of Justice where we get none? Is it Congress where you make a law that favors us and then you turn around and destroy it? https://t.co/iK8VMI667b pic.twitter.com/Byk0Px2Avo— MINISTER FARRAKHAN (@LouisFarrakhan) May 25, 2018
Additionally, Farrakhan called for an end to white men, saying that their “nature is not in harmony with the nature of God.”
And as The Daily Caller's Virgina Kruta notes, Farrakhan went on to claim that white men had squandered the time God gave them to rule, alleging that they had chosen not to rule with righteousness, truth, justice, or fairness.
White man was only given 6,000 years (6 days) to rule. You cannot deny he has ruled but on what principle did he rule? Righteousness? Truth? Justice? Fairness? I don't think so. #Farrakhan #NOISundays— The Final Call News (@TheFinalCall) May 27, 2018
So far, there has been barely a ripple from the media over this shocking statement. I only came across it through a tweet from a parody artist who claims to be a Republican representative under the name Steven Smith of Georgia.
Farrakhan promises more to come on his opinion of President Trump. It is far too soon to conclude that he is coming around to support the POTUS, but that is certainly a possibility. And his statement so far is enough to help a significant number of black voters to start questioning the taboo enforced by any black organizations against support for any Republicans. Will Farrakhan continue what Kanye started?
