Is NAACP blind to Farrakhan & Co.? The Nation of Islam is built on racism and lies
NY Daily News ^ | 7/19/2010 | Stanley Crouch

Posted on 07/19/2010 9:13:17 AM PDT by Qbert

I do not think that the NAACP was out of order in asking the Tea Party movement to separate itself from the racists in its midst, but the famous civil rights organization ought to start by following the same suggestion.

During the great March On Washington in August of 1963, the Nation of Islam was not invited. Its members were not bothered because Malcolm X was to become a bit more famous by ridiculing the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and the whole affair as a meaningless piece of theater held in check by the almighty white man.

But by the end of the decade, the civil rights movement had fallen to pieces shortly after King's assassination in 1968. Black Power emerged and whites were discouraged from joining or attempting to join anything supposedly free of white control.

This was intellectual pollution. It is now known as "identity politics." A toxic form of pretension, it had certain memorable ingredients. They were all conveniently superficial. Big hair styles, name changes, African clothing, combat boots, reading the combative works of Frantz Fanon and just about anyone from anywhere in the world ready to call white people dirty names and blame capitalist Western culture for the troubles of the planet.

"Unity" became the loud call and was thought capable of putting color prejudice in its place. All black people needed to do was cease going in a number of separate directions. It was no longer time to come to Jesus; it was time to come together! Color was the ultimate reality, they said; the white man could maintain power only if black people kept spinning their wheels on separate paths.

That was the point at which previously unacceptable racist cults like the Nation of Islam became acceptable.

Reminds me of a certain radical:

"...To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist Professors and the structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets. We smoked cigarettes and wore leather jackets. At night, in the dorms, we discussed neocolonialism, Franz (sic) Fanon, Eurocentrism, and patriarchy."

Racism is just fine with the NAACP. As long as it does not target black people, they are cool with it.

The term “racism” is so over used it will lose its sting.

That would be good.

Louis Farrakhan, Santiago de Cuba, February, 1998:
"There is not a member of the black masses in the United States who is not proud of the example set by Cuba and its revolution, with Comandante Fidel at its head"

Unity generates power to change reality
By the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

"The time has never been more ripe for a strategic relationship between the Black, Brown, Native American and the poor of this nation and the world."

"We need a Ministry of Defense. Our young men are born soldiers, but they are in the wrong war. They are fighting a war in the streets of America against each other, or they are fighting an unjust war overseas in Afghanistan and Iraq. We need to bring our boys home and put them into the Ministry of Defense, so we can defend our communities, rather than destroy our communities.

We need a Ministry of Art and Culture. We applaud the hip hop community, the leaders of young people all over the world, but I want the young generation of artists to know there is a bigger purpose for art and culture than popping our fingers and shaking our backsides.

Mao Tse Tung, throughout his long march to conquer China, had a billion people whose lives he had to transform. Many of them were victims of opium, drugs and prostitution, like we are. But Mao Tse Tung went to the cultural community and they accepted his idea. Then, through song, dance, poetry, drama, documentaries, movies and books, the idea of Mao Tse Tung became the idea of a billion people. China became a world power on the base of culture and the artistic community. If we had a Ministry of Art and Culture in every city, [we'd] create this movement [in the U.S.], we could say to our young people, “What is the idea of the Time and are you reflecting that idea in your songs, dance and music?

We need a Ministry of Trade and Commerce. Do you think that a Millions More Movement should not be involved in the development of Africa, the Caribbean and Central America? ... we need a Ministry of Trade and Commerce that can link the struggle here with Africa and the Caribbean, Central and South America.

Not when it comes to the militant Black community. It has its home there.

NAACP is to Farrakhan as CAIR is to Al Queda.

It’s not merely a blind eye — they tacitly APPROVE and secretly hope for Farrakhan’s success. And they and their members help whenever and however they can.

Like Farrakhan, the NAACP hates whitey and wants us all dead, or at least enslaved (by them). Don’t believe anything to the contrary.

SEAN HANNITY: But Reverend Jeremiah Wright is not backing down and has not for years and in his strong stance on the teaching of black liberation theology is nothing new. He had the same things to say last spring when he appeared on "Hannity & Colmes:"

WRIGHT: If you're not going to talk about theology in context, if you're not going to talk about liberation theology that came out of the '60s, systematized black liberation theology that started with Jim Cone in 1968 and the writings of Cone and the writings of Dwight Hopkins and the writings of womynist theologians and Asian theologians and Hispanic theologians, then you can't talk about the black value system.

HANNITY: But I'm a — reverend

WRIGHT: Do you know liberation theology, sir?

"The Justice Department originally brought the case against four armed men who witnesses say derided voters with catcalls of "white devil" and "cracker" and told voters they should prepare to be "ruled by the black man." ..."

One poll watcher called police after he reportedly saw one of the men brandishing a nightstick to threaten voters.

As I walked up, they closed ranks, next to each other,” the witness told Fox News at the time. “So I walked directly in between them, went inside and found the poll watchers. They said they’d been here for about an hour. And they told us not to come outside because a black man is going to win this election no matter what.”

He said the man with a nightstick told him, “’We’re tired of white supremacy,’ and he starts tapping the nightstick in his hand. At which point I said, ‘OK, we’re not going to get in a fistfight right here,’ and I called the police.”...”

"...racists in its midst." I completely reject this statement and no one should allow it to stand. There are no "racists in its midst".

Enough of this.

They are not blind to the hatred and racism in that organization. They favor it. They believe in it.
The left does not live by the same rules as normal people. They do not see any hypocricy in this at all.

But let a normal person say Macaca and they’re all over it.

They’re not blind to anything. With the constant help of the news media it’s far easier and more profitable to play on white guilt then to confront the bogeymen under their own beds.

Same here. It's a ploy to keep others on the defensive and to turn the attention away from the real racism on the left. It appears to be working.

“Mao Tung, throughout his long march to conquer China, had a billion people whose lives he had to transform.”

He certainly transformed them. He slaughtered a reported 60 million Chinese , starving some and shooting others. He was a homicidal monster. I have no doubt that Farrakhan would emulate the crimes of Mao if he had the power.

Farrakhan was known as “Calypso Louie” and “The Charmer” His real name is Walcott. He instigated the assassination of Malcolm X after Malcolm returned from Mecca and reported that he had worshiped beside blond haired, blue eyed Muslims. Malcolm denounced the racist garbage of Elijah Muhammad and exposed Muhammad’s fathering of several Muslim women who worked in his Chicago mansion.

Louis Farrakhan had always been jealous of Malcolm X and for months published calls for Malcolm’s death in the weekly Black Muslim newspaper, Muhammad Speaks. Malcolm was shot to death by a group of Black Muslims from New Jersey as he spoke to followers at the Audubon Ballroom in New York City.

For years Farrakhan denied his responsibility for the murder of Malcolm X, then finally conceded that he may have unintentionally played a role in the murder. Now this creep has his Fruit of Islam security force, composed of criminal goons recruited in prisons just as Malcolm was. I have no doubt that that he would emulate Mao if he had more than the small number of sociopaths he has in his organization.
