Weir Only Human
When I hear words like “Jews are the anti-Christ, the Satanic Jews, Jews are chosen by Satan, Judaism is a gutter religion,” and many more virulent anti-Semitic comments, I know exactly who’s speaking. There’s only one person in this country evil enough to utter such hate-filled diatribe, while knowing full well that he has immunity from public condemnation. The loathsome reprobate I’m referring to calls himself Minister Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam. Aside from the obvious hypocrisy of a religious leader condemning another religion with such vile language, I’m struck by the fact that Farrakhan is very confident that his skin color works as a type of armor against those who ordinarily would be outraged at such bigotry and take steps to censure him.
President Trump, probably the best friend the Jews have ever had in the White House, is referred to by Democrats and mainstream media as a racist, a bigot, a sexist, and every other baseless accusation. Has anyone heard a word of condemnation from them toward Farrakhan? When the horrible massacre of Jews occurred in the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh; who did the media accuse of creating an atmosphere of hate? Not the creature who reaches millions with his attacks on Jews as “termites.” Instead, the calumny was directed at Trump, the man who had the courage to move the US Embassy in Israel, to Jerusalem; the man whose daughter and son-in-law are Jewish; the man who was lavishly praised as a hero to Jews by none other than Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
What better example of cowardice and political correctness is there than the lack of indignation toward the most vitriolic Jew hater since that maniac with the square mustache goose-stepped across Europe, murdering millions? The Jews, especially those who survived the Holocaust, have made a pledge called “Never again,” which means they will never again tolerate those who use their oratory as a platform on which to perpetuate a Fourth Reich. During the early 1930s, Der Führer making similar outrageous claims against Jews, making them the scapegoats for all the ills suffered by Germany after WW1. He started ranting on street corners to a few spectators who were passing by. But, soon he was amassing large crowds that were beginning to believe the malevolent propaganda spewing from his shrieking lips. Germany, struggling to survive after the disastrous loss of the First World War, needed a leader to resurrect them from the ashes. Sadly, they put their hope in a fiend whose goal in life was to exterminate an entire classification of human beings. The Austrian, turned German, who didn’t have access to anything resembling the mass media of today, nevertheless was able to spread his insidious doctrine to millions when he took over the newspapers and turned them into the primary organ to disseminate the Aryan ideology, dubbed the “Master Race.”
Given the foregoing; why isn’t there a nationwide protest against Farrakhan? I realize the following has been stated before, but, it needs reasserting: If a white person said one-tenth of the appalling comments made by the Muslim monster, there’d be no place on earth for him to hide. The powers that be in the media and government would hound him out of existence. Senator Chuck Schumer and Reps Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters would call for his arrest and incarceration as a clear and present danger to civil society. Leftwing media would run his picture, photo-shopped with horns and a forked tongue, on every front page in the country. CNN, MSNBC and other FAKE NEWS media would open each newscast with screeching reporters showing videos of the diseased demagogue as they urged the justice system to intervene.
Therefore, I must ask the question that I’m sure all decent Americans are asking; why are Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison and other Democrats sharing the stage with Farrakhan, while laughing and glad-handing with the most notorious bigot in America? Can it be that they’re fearful of the backlash from African-Americans if they criticize one of their own? If that were true, it would mean Democrats believe some false notion that African-Americans agree with the anti-Semitic smears being propagated by the modern day Hitler (who, incidentally, Farrakhan claims was a “great man.”) Or, could it be that Democrats harbor their own contempt for the followers of Judaism? These are serious questions, but, very few people, those with access to megaphones, have the courage and integrity to ask them.
