Louis Farrakhan Preaches About Harvey Weinstein, #MeToo, and the Jews


The Nation of Islam’s Louis Farrakhan continued his pattern of fighting fire with fire this week, striking back at his perceived enemies in a scorching, three-hour sermon entitled “Unmasking Satan” at the Mosque Maryam in Chicago. “[Y]ou and I are going to have to learn to distinguish between the righteous Jew and the Satanic Jews who have infected the whole world with poison and deceit,” Farrakhan thundered. The Nation of Islam’s the Final Call reports that Farrakhan blames the “Jewish community” for “an unrelenting campaign to condemn and isolate Min. Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam” since Farrakhan’s closing address in February to the Nation’s annual convention.

Farrakhan, who denies he is anti-Semitic, contends that Jews control most of the media, entertainment, and global politics. Farrakhan even referenced the #MeToo movement, saying: “The #MeToo Movement is real, women are tired of being misused by men in power.”

In calling out Harvey Weinstein, Farrakhan insisted the disgraced mogul is not really a Jew:

Mr. Weinstein is not a Jew. He’s Satanic. But he’s committing blasphemy by saying he’s a Jew. The name Jew is a good name, it means one who has a covenant relationship with God.

A righteous Jew will practice righteousness; the false Jew will lead you to filth and indecency. That’s who runs show business, that’s who runs the record industry, that’s who runs television. And in that, there are Jews that have no respect and now they are being outed with the #MeToo Movement.

This week, the Final Call tweeted more lines from Farrakhan’s address about the Weinstein question: “Do you know that many of us who go to Hollywood seeking a chance have to submit to anal sex and all kind of debauchery and they give you a little part? It’s called the casting couch. See that’s Jewish power.”

Farrakhan rose to prominence once again early this year with the release of a 2005 photo of Farrakhan with then-Senator Barrack Obama, a photo that even some of Obama’s supporters believe could have derailed his 2008 presidential bid had it not been suppressed at the time. Shortly thereafter, I wrote an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal exposing long overlooked connections between the Democrats (largely members of the Congressional Black Caucus) and Farrakhan. A week later, I wrote a second op-ed for the Journal zeroing in on the relationship of DNC deputy chair Keith Ellison and Farrakhan, a relationship Ellison continues to deny exists.

More recently here at THE WEEKLY STANDARD in April, I wrote about a “recent visit by Ellison to the Chicago headquarters of the Coalition for the Remembrance of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad (CROE), an organization formed in 1987 to honor and promote the teaching of Elijah Muhammad, former leader of the Nation of Islam and mentor to Louis Farrakhan.” Ellison’s office has ignored requests for comment.

While some Democrats have denounced Farrakhan, others (Maxine Waters, for instance) have remained silent. Even Cory Booker, one of the party’s rising stars, has resisted addressing the troubling connections between Farrakhan and Democrats. In October 2016, Booker posted a remembrance of 1995’s Million Man March, which reads “Remembering the Million Man March on October 16, 1995. May the unity and spirit behind the march continue to live on.” The March was organized by Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam, and the photo Booker chose for his tribute includes a poster with Farrakhan’s photo. Booker’s office has also ignored repeated requests for comment.
