    Who knew that the sneering bigot Farrakhan was still alive? He should be introduced to Phelps, they could enage in a Hate-Off. Why do we, who are trillions of dollars in debt, give maney/aid to Belize?

  2. KsBrian says

    Typical 2 faced hypocrite, according to this a$$ clown civil, rights only apply to blacks. No the rest us.

  3. Chitown Kev says

    @KSBrian

    Actually, if I remember correctly, the NOI never believed that civil rights laws in America would make a difference.

    huh…seems like a narcissist to me. Plus, he’s got Jamaican ancestry which is one of the most proudly anti-gay countries around right? “forgive him for he knows not what he’s doing”… ugh.

  5. Polyboy says

    And he’s not the founder of the NOI.

    And they’ve always been radical and a bit crazy.

    Plus I thought he died of cancer of something. Oh well just more evidence that evil is pervaisive.

    What an angry and ugly man.
    Nation of Islam-WTF have they done for the benefit of the world? He’s just ANOTHER old,tired,angry BIGOT who lives a life of hatred and greed and ugliness…scary in all ways.

    I swear Farrakhan is a FBI source or high level asset. The stuff he does with relative impunity certainly suggests his bum is being covered.

  8. Jack M says

    It’s so funny – I thought he was dead too. He must have managed to keep his mouth shut for a long time, which is something of a miracle. Empty barrels make the most noise.

    You can’t fight the importance of tourist dollars. Not even a former calypso singer and classical violinist can do that.

    Some of the old Boston queens who knew him when he was a young entertainer may know some stuff about him. They never spoke up. But I always wondered why the young men he surrounded himself with were so handsome and perfectly groomed (the Fruit of Islam they were called).

    I’m just wonderin’…we all have imaginations.

  10. ratbastard says

    Fun Fact:

    Farrakhan graduated from Boston English high school [public school], same as Leonard Nimoy, J.P. Morgan, Kahlil Gibran. It once had a reputation as a very good school, but is generally mocked today.

  11. woodroad34 says

    My brother, who does missionary work for his Baptist chapter in Chicago, happened down a street where Farrakahn was attending one of his meetings. His henchman had blocked off the street and were holding rifles to keep people at bay. For some reason (I can’t remember), my brother’s car was chased down the street causing him to flip it. The pursuers ran away. My brother said he had never been so frightened for his life before.

    I’ve never understood the “logic” that would cause a Negro to convert from the religion of the American slave masters to the religion of the African slave traders.

    To completely experience the BS that is the NOI, do an internet search for “tribe of shabazz”.

  13. woodroad34 says

    “And he’s not the founder of the NOI”

    He’s not the founder of the original Nation of Islam, but in 1981 he started a new NOI (from Wikipedia):

    “Farrakhan started rebuilding the NOI. In 1981 he revived the name Nation of Islam for his organization, previously known as Final Call, regaining many of the Nation of Islam’s National properties including the NOI National Headquarters Mosque Maryam, reopening over 130 NOI mosques in America and the world. The Southern Poverty Law Center describes Farrakhan as an antisemite”

    Belize, another of Queen Elizabeth’s delightful Commonwealth countries where LGBT people are treated as criminals.

  15. Derrick from Philly says

    “I’ve never understood the “logic” that would cause a Negro to convert from the religion of the American slave masters to the religion of the African slave traders.”

    And I’ve never understood the “logic” of elderly homosexuals who like to make comments that are bound to insight ugly exchanges on this blog.

    “Negro” OK, Ofay.

    What do you think this is? “Far From Heaven”–back in the 1950s when you were in the closet and had a secret crush on J. Edgar Hoover?

  16. Please says

    Derrick…”David Hearne” is just an old lonely white queen who needs to pretend he’s relevant and “edgy”. He thinks looking down on black people elevates him somehow. I guarantee he’s nobody and nothing in his real life.

  17. jjose712 says

    Derrick from Philly: Maybe is because i’m european, but i always find the political correctess of afroamerican incredibly ridiculous.

    I don’t know that much about the civil rights movement, but when black begins to have such negative connotations, because in my opinion is as neutral as white

    And i don’t know if his wording is insulting, but he is right on the rest, islam has nothing to do with american blacks ancestors, so it makes no sense to change christianity for a religion that it’s even backwards

  18. Derrick from Philly says

    Hi, JJOSE712,

    Actually, the Nation of Islam had very little to do with Islam. It was a “Black nationalist” organization which preached hatred of White people, BUT also independence FROM White people.

    When I was a teenager, we had a NOI Temple on the end of my block in North Philly. One friday night a group of “the Fruit of Islam” confronted me for being a f.ggot as I was going to meet friends (well, actually they actually did use the word “Gay”, but the way they said it they may as well have said the word f.ggot). I was afraid, and they came across to me as not knowing a damn thing about Islam–they just came across as street trade and ex-cons. My opinion hasn’t changed.

    As for Black Americans who convert to mainstream Islam (Sunni or Shiite)? Well, many do NOT accept David Hearne’s characterization of Muslims as “Slave Traders”….some simply want to separate themselves from Black American Christianity.

    If you have chance please google Kareem Abdul Jamarr. You’ll see what a sincere Black American convert to Islam is about.

  19. Moz's says

    Lets flip this

    Why would the white descendants of europeans who were enslaved by christians keep to the slaver’s religion?

    The enslavement of white europeans 1st by dusky Romans and later by fellow white europeans didn’t end till sometime in the middle ages 5ce-15ce and was replaced by serfdom…which was slavery by another name

    Under serfdom once could not move to a new area

    a serf’s services could be sold by their LORD or the Bishop that ruled the area to serve another Lord or Bishop

    etc

    stupid white xtians staying with their xtian slaver’s religion

  20. Moz's says

    PS a bit from wiki page

    SERFDOM

    “..It was a condition of bondage or modified slavery which developed primarily during the High Middle Ages in Europe and lasted in some countries until the mid-19th century….”

    stupid white xtians sticking to their slaver’s religion

  21. David Hearne says

    Derrick – As usual you complain but didn’t refute anything. You want to detour the conversation into a debate on terminology because you have no factual argument.

  22. David Hearne says

    Moz – You won’t get much argument from me on the stupidity of Europeans and Britons continuing to practice Christianity. However, your likening the spread of Christianity to Europe and the British Isles to that of Islam spreading to black Africa is not exactly a sound match. Christianity arrived in Europe through evangelism and was then crafted into the state religion of the Roman Empire and vassal states. Christianity was spread by caucasians to caucasians. Islam was imposed on negroes (or congoids if Derrick prefers) by caucasians.

  23. Moz's says

    actually David h

    it wasn’t evangelism

    xtianity spread through europe via priests going to Kings and converting them

    The masses had no choice

    Pre xtianity, pagan european kings did not have divine right nor were many of them via birth

    The celts for example picked their kings by a council of druids with no guarantee a kings offspring would be king

    In came the xtian priests straight to the kings. “You can have divine right and your sons will inherit the crown, just convert” They did and by the SWORD they forced the masses of europe to then also convert

    No priests visited towns and evangelized the common masses of europe

  24. David Hearne says

    MOZ – Better yet , if you wouldn’t mind giving a specific example of a king chosen by a Druid council and how your Christianization model was specifically applied in Ireland or Scotland

  25. Whatever says

    yes because caucasians cannot by their nature impose anything on another caucasian, it can only be “spread” or “shared”. Such BS.

  26. David Hearne says

    Whatever – Which doesn’t explain ghetto blacks converting to islam in prison.

  27. Whatever says

    …The same reason groups form in prison based on race, religion, territory, ethnicity, gang affiliation or any number of subgroups…survival. “Islam” in prison is based more on structure and discipline rather than the actual religion… Islam just provides the mechanism.

    The same reason white trash like yourself gathers in trailer parks…to trade cigarettes

  28. David Hearne says

    Whatever-

    I”ve only lived in one trailer park, in Fenwick Island Delaware. It was a bit expensive, but there weren’t any undesirables living there. Now I’m looking for a double wide on 50 acres in California, and you and the other undesirables will be even further away.

    Louis F needs to go to a speck of an island to speak as no one in the US will give him any notice. He should be on tour w Michelle Bachmann

  30. millerbeach says

    Hey Louis, did your son ever pay up to the couple from Gary, Indiana which he literally crippled them after hitting them on the Indiana Toll Road? Remember? He was drunk and high on prescription drugs? Remember now? Remember how you said he was an “volunteer” instead of “employee” so the courts could not make a judgement against him? I wonder how THIS will look in the eyes of God? Did he ever pay what he owes? No. What about darling daughter, holed up in that nice house on Lake Michigan in the Miller section of Gary? If you are so afraid of gays, you better have her move…and quick. She is surrounded by them. Your daughter has gay people as neighbors. Don’t worry, we all know where she lives. You are the biggest creep God ever blew breath into, and a total phony. I eagerly await YOUR judgement day. I hope I am the one pulling the cord for you to burn in H*ll.

  31. DannyEastVillage says

    Farrakhan proves once again that he is what he always was; an ignorant, bigoted ghetto kid.
