Louis Farrakhan Press Conference: Muslim Leader Warns Donald …

Minister Louis Farrakhan held a press conference at the Watergate Hotel on Thursday and warned President Donald Trump to show penance for the countrys sins. The Nation of Islam leader, who sent mixed messages in his speech about Trump, blasted American critics for harsh criticism and ongoing calls for impeachment. Minister Farrakhan scolded Americans that the president is a reflection of the countrys image and suffering, this according to a new report.

Louis Farrakhan, 84, spoke before a capacity crowd in a building that is synonymous with Washingtons most ill-famed scandal to rock American politics. The events surrounding the burglary of the Democratic National Committee headquarters eventually led to President Richard Nixons resignation ahead of an impeachment trial.

According to a Google search, the hotel is located a mere 1.5 miles from the White House. Louis Farrakhan delivered a fiery speech about Donald Trumps impact on social relations particularly on race and discrimination in America and the disjointed relationships among Middle Eastern Muslims on their native soils.

In his charged oration, Farrakhan addressed his talking points to Trump and discounted the GOP leaders campaign slogan, Make America Great Again by offering his interpretation of the catchphrase.

Mr. President, you wont make America great again, not in our time. She [America] became great killing Native Americans. She became great enslaving us, bringing us from Africa into America to work the cotton fields. Youre not going to get that opportunity back anymore.

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, the Nation of Islams inception occurred in 1930s Detroit. Its sole purpose was aimed at liberating African-Americans from servitude to white dominance.

The NOI, under Louis Farrakhan, teaches his congregation that blacks are, by nature of existence, superior over their white counterparts, a notion that is called bizarre theology by the SPLC. As the source suggests, establishment Muslims push back against Farrakhans radical teachings while others castigate the organization for using hateful and divisive rhetoric to advocate separatist principles.

Minister Farrakhan warned President Trump to take a leadership role and use his platform to make atonement to a scarred society. He advised the president to repent for all of the evils that America has done to us, to the peoples of the world, according to Yahoo! News.

Farrakhan continued his analysis of Trump by drawing a comparison between him and the embattled president. The controversial NOI minister said he and Trump are similar in their perception of the global power structure.

The president talks on occasion about how the economy is rigged and the entities often blamed for its decline are scapegoats. Similarly, Farrakhan often teaches Nation of Islam followers that Jews and Israelis, not Muslim extremists, were behind the coordinated terror attacks in the United States in 2001.

The liberal media, Independents, and Democrats often criticize Donald Trump about his firebrand style of leadership. Early in his campaign, Trump came under fire for placing institutional labels on minorities (Muslims and Mexicans). Furthermore, hes been losing ground among women voters for his Trump-grade sexism aimed at women in the entertainment industry: Rosie ODonnell, Megyn Kelly, and the unnamed victims in the infamous grab them by the pu**y tape, according to the Telegraph.

Farrakhan stops short of applauding Trumps behavior. Instead, he called Trump real, transparent and said, he is what he is. Minister Farrakhan then showed empathy for the beleaguered president and placed blame on voters in both main parties for allowing his brand of politics to rise.

Hes telling lies all right, and youre angry because hes your reflection. Hes an anomaly. You cant make him what you desire him to be so you can say, Thats my president. He wasnt made that way.

Louis Farrakhans Jesus Is Not Our Jesus | News & Reporting …

More than 1 million Facebook users have watched Louis Farrakhan proclaim that the living Jesus will save him from death, and that he will pay a price for his former teachings as the leader of the Nation of Islam.

Yet what seemed to some Christian outsiders like a move toward biblical repentance was, according to expert observers, actually a common tactic in Farrakhans messaging: using Christian language to apply to the African American movements own theology.

It sounds like, because he used Jesus, that hes talking about the biblical Jesus, said Atlanta preacher Damon Richardson, who was born and raised in the Nation of Islam but found Jesusthe Christian oneat 16.

Ive got pastors and friends who are sharing the video, saying, Hallelujah, praise God for this conversion, and they are not doing the research.

Farrakhan gave his remarks earlier this month at a Washington church where he has guest-preached for decades, and posted a clip on Facebook which has been viewed by more than 1.3 million people. The 84-year-old minister said:

I thank God for guiding me for 40 years absent my teacher. So my next journey will have to answer the question. I’m gonna say, I know that my redeemer liveth. I know, I’m not guessing, that my Jesus is alive. I know that my redeemer liveth and because he lives I know that I, too, will pass through the portal of death yet death will not afflict me.

So I say to the devil, I know I gotta pay a price for what Ive been teaching all these years. You can have the money, you can have the clothes, you can have the suit, you can have the house but, me, you cant have.

His language rings familiar for churchgoers. But Richardson, an urban apologist speaking on Facebook in response, said the clip offers a lesson in the importance of using sound hermeneuticsincluding understanding how a message was originally intended and received.

Farrakhan restructured the Nation of Islam in the 1970s following its longtime leader and his mentor Elijah Mohammad, who died in 1975. He ultimately declared Mohammad as a new savior sent from Allah.

When he says, I know that my redeemer lives, this is a reference to the fact that he believes Elijah Mohammad, while physically absent, is physically alive, Richardson said. (This is a shift in the Nation of Islams theology, since founder Wallace Fard Muhammad was originally seen as the savior and was even honored with a holiday called Saviours Day.)

When [Farrakhan] says, I know Im going to have to pay a price for what Ive been teaching all these years, this is not a denouncing of the teaching. This is an affirmation that he believes what he has been teaching is right, Richardson said. The price is death, imprisonment, or some sort of persecution for exposing the identity of the devil, who the Nation of Islam teaches is the white man.

Even after Christians due diligence on Farrakhans latest remarks reveal that he has not moved away from his own teachings, they can continue to pray for him and all in the Nation of Islam, said apologist and church planter D. A. Horton.

The Nation of Islam began as a black nationalist and Islamic movement to teach the downtrodden and defenseless black people a thorough knowledge of God and of themselves. In a 2000 interview with CT, theologian Carl Ellis described the Nation of Islam among several groups with a theology based on the historical core cultural issues of African Americansdignity, identity, significance, empowermentalong with various doctrines that claim God is black and the white man is the devil.

Though its numbers arent as high as during the 1960s and 1970s, the group under Farrakhan continues to have a presence in major cities and a closer relationship with some black churches who ascribe to black liberation theology, according to Richardson.

His relationship with the black church has grown over the year because of his tendency to use Scripture and Christian language, Richardson said in an interview with CT. Its the skin of the truth, stuffed with a lie.

Farrakhan has made hundreds of references to Jesus over the course of his ministry and incorporated Gods son in his teaching, including attributing the light shining from the east (Matt. 24:27) to Elijah Mohammad.

Many Nation of Islam speakers also follow the language, symbols, and rhythm of black church culture in their style, according to Washington pastor Thabiti Anyabwile.

It is definitely a deceptive means that the Nation of Islam will use to lure unsuspecting Christians, said pastor Ernest Leo Grant II, who has written about the need for a new approach to defending the Christian faith in the inner city.

Grant, who leads Epiphany Fellowship of Camden, New Jersey, listed the Nation of Islam, along with Moorish Science Temple of America and Black Hebrew Israelites, as the top sects offering urban African Americans an alternative to Christianity.

Farrakhan in particular is known for appropriating and transposing Christian terms to make them more appealing, Grant said. Evangelicals should be concerned about the Nation of Islam in general because they are causing some to fall away.

Christian rapper Sho Baraka spoke on The Calling podcast about his own upbringing in the Nation of Islam, and the need for theological training to address similar cults and sects that appeal to African Americans.

The growing field of urban apologeticswith an eye toward poverty, justice, diversity, violence, and a citys cultural distinctiveshas worked to train leaders to serve that mission.

Sadly, in the black community, we have conceded these issues either to liberation theology or to black nationalist groups like the Nation of Islam, Christopher Brooks, a pastor in Detroit where the Nation of Islam began, told CT in 2013. There needs to be a strong evangelical voice in our urban areas that says, Here is what the gospel has to say about justice.

Louis Farrakhan Calls On Trump to ‘Repent’ for America’s ‘Evils’

(WASHINGTON) Minister Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam, on Thursday called on President Donald Trump to repent for Americas sins and chastised Americans who are upset with Trumps image, saying hes your reflection.

Farrakhan, in a wide-ranging, two-hour speech at the Watergate Hotel, touched on issues as varied as North Korea, race relations and relations between Muslims in the Middle East in what he called an address to Trump.

Mr. President, you wont make America great again, not in our time, said Farrakhan, 84, referring to the presidents Make America Great Again campaign slogan. She became great killing Native Americans. She became great enslaving us, bringing us from Africa into America to work the cotton fields. Youre not going to get that opportunity back anymore.

The Nation of Islam, formed in Detroit in the 1930s, in part aims to free blacks from servitude to Western civilization white society.

Farrakhan called on Trump to repent for all of the evils that America has done to us, to the peoples of the world.

During the presidential campaign, Farrakhan sent mixed signals about Trump, indicating he saw some reflection of his worldview in the candidates rhetoric, including the Republicans talk of a global power structure that has rigged the economy. Farrakhan has long promoted conspiracy theories, blaming Israel and Jews for the Sept. 11 attacks, and accusing Jews of controlling the American government.

Trump has called some Mexican immigrants rapists, advocated policies that put Muslims under general suspicion and has been criticized for being slow to condemn white supremacists.

Farrakhan on Thursday called Trump transparent and real, and said he is what he is.

Some wanted him to put on a suit and act dignified, like the thieves and robbers who dress in suits and tell lies, he added.

Hes telling lies all right, and youre angry because hes your reflection, Farrakhan said. Hes an anomaly. You cant make him what you desire him to be so you can say, Thats my president. He wasnt made that way.

Louis Farrakhan Thinks There Are Good Jews Who Knew?

Louis Farrakhan receiving a standing ovation during a press conference in Chicago in 2011.

Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, made reference to good Jews and 9/11 conspiracy theories in a speech at in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, RNS reported. Farrakhan spoke at the Watergate Hotel for over two hours, touching on race, North Korea and Donald Trump.

I am here from my teacher, not out of hate but out of hope that maybe what I say to this 45th president of the United States of America might have an effect to get him off the course that he is on, Farrakhan said.

Farrakhan spoke next to a large poster that read, The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, Volume II: How Jews Gained Control of the Black American Economy.

There are righteous Jews, good Jews, Jews that want to practice the teachings of the prophets, he said. But then there are others who dont wish to practice and it is they that hated Reverend Jacksons desire to be president.

Farrakhan also suggested that Muslims were framed for 9/11, and seemed to suggest that Flint was a government conspiracy.

Dick Gregorys daughter joins Stevie Wonder

Dick Gregory touched millions during his 84 years of life. A man with such an enormous life deserved a gigantic home going. So for nearly seven hours, Gregorys family and friends paid tribute to him at a funeral that proved to be a celebration of life and love.

Held at the City of Praise Family Ministries in Landover, Maryland, the service featured video of Cicely Tyson honoring his life; footage of the Dick Gregory documentary I Am Dick Gregory; remarks by the children of Malcolm X, Dr. Martin Luther King, Medgar Evers, and Richard Pryor; a musical tribute by Gregorys daughter Ayanna; a musical tribute by India Arie; remarks by Rev. William Barber; a performance by Joe Morton from the one-man stage play Turn Me Loose; powerful words from Gregorys family members; remarks by Maxine Waters; a eulogy by Minister Louis Farrakhan; and a performance by Stevie Wonder.

Waters spoke about Gregory and his political views against the current administration. He gave up a fortune to help Black people, what are you going to do, Waters asked the audience. Dont come here today and say how much you love him and go to work tomorrow and skin and grin. Its time for us to have courage to do what we need to do. Now is the time for us to have courage. I wish I could sit and talk with Dick because I have work to do. Because Im cleaning out the White House. Im going to sanitize the White House.

Minister Farrakhan shared his thoughts on Gregory by saying, Dick walked amongst us, but he always let his eyes focus on the universe. The God who created all of this cant be pigeonholed. We are immature in our religious expressions. These things are satanic and cause humans to fight each other when we belong to the oneness of the universal creator.

Other notable attendees included Bill Cosby, Lawrence ODonnell of MSNBC, Michael Eric Dyson, and Roland Martin to name a few.

Twitter Refuses To Unverify Noted Anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan

Twitter has yet to remove the blue checkmark from Minister Louis Farrakhans Twitter account as the social media company embarks on a crusade to remove voices that promote hate and violence against protected groups.

Farrakhan, a noted anti-Semite and Nation of Islam leader, still retains his verification status on Twitter, as of Thursday evening. Twitter has already taken away the checkmarks of those who have bigoted views on race, such as white nationalist Richard Spencer, as well as other alt-right and far-right figureheads.

When asked by The Daily Caller News Foundation why Farrakhan still possesses his blue check mark, a Twitter spokesperson pointed TheDCNF to a series of tweets from the company in which it said it was working on a new verification process and would be reviewing those accounts that do not meet the companys guidelines for acceptable behavior.

Minister Farrakhan/Twitter/Screenshot

The Twitter guidelines dictate that promoting hate or violence against others on the basis of race, gender, ethnicity or religious background, as well as supporting those who do the same is grounds for verification removal, among other violations.

It would seem that Farrakhan, well known for his railings against the Jewish community and classification of whites as white devils,would classify to have his verification removed. He has called Judaism a gutter religion, described Hitler as a very great man in a 1984 speech and blamed Jewish people for sending the United States to hell in another speech. He warned Jewish people of how when its God who puts you in the ovens, its forever. He has also repeatedly described Jewish people as satanic.

Farrakhan has a history of making bigoted statements against white people, once declaring that white people deserve to die, and they know, so they think its us coming to do it at a Milwaukee event. He also described white people as potential humans who havent evolved yet.

So for nearly seven hours, Gregorys family and friends paid tribute to him at a funeral that proved to be a celebration of life and love. Held at the City of Praise Family Ministries in Landover, Maryland, the service featured video of Cicely Tyson honoring his life; footage of the Dick Gregory documentary I Am Dick Gregory; remarks by the children of Malcolm X, Dr. Martin Luther King, Medgar Evers, and Richard Pryor; a musical tribute by Gregorys daughter Ayanna; a musical tribute by India Arie; remarks by Rev. William Barber; a performance by Joe Morton from the one-man stage play Turn Me Loose; powerful words from Gregorys family members; remarks by Maxine Waters; a eulogy by Minister Louis Farrakhan; and a performance by Stevie Wonder. Waters spoke about Gregory and his political views against the current administration. He gave up a fortune to help Black people, what are you going to do, Waters asked the audience. Dont come here today and say how much you love him and go to work tomorrow and skin and grin. Its time for us to have courage to do what we need to do. Now is the time for us to have courage. I wish I could sit and talk with Dick because I have work to do. Because Im cleaning out the White House. Im going to sanitize the White House. Minister Farrakhan shared his thoughts on Gregory by saying, Dick walked amongst us, but he always let his eyes focus on the universe. The God who created all of this cant be pigeonholed. We are immature in our religious expressions. These things are satanic and cause humans to fight each other when we belong to the oneness of the universal creator. Other notable attendees included Bill Cosby, Lawrence ODonnell of MSNBC, Michael Eric Dyson, and Roland Martin to name a few.

Twitter Refuses To Unverify Noted Anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan

Twitter has yet to remove the blue checkmark from Minister Louis Farrakhans Twitter account as the social media company embarks on a crusade to remove voices that promote hate and violence against protected groups. Farrakhan, a noted anti-Semite and Nation of Islam leader, still retains his verification status on Twitter, as of Thursday evening. Twitter has already taken away the checkmarks of those who have bigoted views on race, such as white nationalist Richard Spencer, as well as other alt-right and far-right figureheads. When asked by The Daily Caller News Foundation why Farrakhan still possesses his blue check mark, a Twitter spokesperson pointed TheDCNF to a series of tweets from the company in which it said it was working on a new verification process and would be reviewing those accounts that do not meet the companys guidelines for acceptable behavior. Minister Farrakhan/Twitter/Screenshot The Twitter guidelines dictate that promoting hate or violence against others on the basis of race, gender, ethnicity or religious background, as well as supporting those who do the same is grounds for verification removal, among other violations. It would seem that Farrakhan, well known for his railings against the Jewish community and classification of whites as white devils,would classify to have his verification removed. He has called Judaism a gutter religion, described Hitler as a very great man in a 1984 speech and blamed Jewish people for sending the United States to hell in another speech. He warned Jewish people of how when its God who puts you in the ovens, its forever. He has also repeatedly described Jewish people as satanic. Farrakhan has a history of making bigoted statements against white people, once declaring that white people deserve to die, and they know, so they think its us coming to do it at a Milwaukee event. He also described white people as potential humans who havent evolved yet. Follow Amber on Twitter Send tips to [emailprotected].
