Rahm welcomes help from Farrakahn, ignores anti-Semitic remarks

Ignoring Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan’s history of anti-Semitic remarks, Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Wednesday welcomed the army of men dispatched to the streets by Farrakhan to stop the violence in Chicago neighborhoods.

Ald. Debra Silverstein (50th), an Orthodox Jew, has said it’s good that Farrakhan is “helping” in the fight against crime, “but it doesn’t eradicate the comments that he’s made about the Jewish community.”

Emanuel offered no such caveat. Although Farrakhan has a history of making anti-Semitic statements, Chicago’s first Jewish mayor has no interest in revisiting that controversy.

He’s more concerned about reducing a 40 percent surge in Chicago homicides that’s become a media obsession and threatens to undermine his efforts to market Chicago to international tourists.

“People of faith have a role to play and community leaders have a role to play in helping to protect our neighborhoods and our citizens. You cannot get there on just one piece of an anti-crime strategy,” the mayor said.

I wonder what Farrakhan’s views on gay marriage are?

Just curious . . .

Sounds like the Nation of Islam has been given preferential treatment to act as vigilantes to stop the violence in Chicago. Gee I wonder what would happen if a group of concerned Tea-Partiers offered to help bring order to a city? Obviously that would just be racist!

Minister Louis Farrakhan recently responded to President Obama’s endorsement of gay marriage calling him “the first president that sanctioned what the scriptures forbid,” according to a video posted by the Nation of Islam’s “official” news source, Finalcall.com.

During an address at the California Convention Center on Sunday, the Nation of Islam leader ridiculed the media for its portrayal of Obama after the announcement, and chastised politicians and clergy for hypocritically supporting gay marriage despite the fact that the Bible forbids it.

“Rahm welcomes help from Farrakahn, ignores anti-Semitic remarks....”

If (When) the Nation of Islam fails to reduce the mass murders ongoing in the Windy City, Maybe Rahm-wad can call in the New Black Panthers.

Now THAT would work, right?

Right?

Maybe they should pass some more gun control laws.

They can legislate those guns off the streets.

Oh! Wait......

If laws worked there wouldn't be any crime.

If I'm not mistaken, isn't Rahm Emanuel a Jew?

If so, he exposes himself as the hypocrite that we all know that he is.

Besides Rahm-ie baby, Torah scripture (that would be God's holy word) lays out clearly HIS design for marriage, HIS design for procreation and HIS design of human anatomy to make this happen.

In this great owners manual, Emanuel, you will find the Lord's thoughts pertaining to homosexuality.

On a related note, Emanuel, spelled with one M, does not have the same meaning as Emmanuel....(God among us!) Let's not be confused.

You Rahm, are doing the work of your unholy father.

Its worse than that actually.

This is the surrender of the rule of law in Chicago.

Here we have liberals admitting that they have no answers to the problems they have created and so are willing to turn over policing responsibilities to a facist demagogue.

A thug.

The hell on earth created by the liberal "Great Society" bears the rotten fruit of a godless generation.

Behold a society that turns its face from God.

Behold the filth, the devastation and the despair that is the inevitable destination of socialist/humanist/progressive policies.

Rahm isn’t offended by Louie’s anti-Semitic comments because Rahm is a J.I.N.O. He has no God. He’s a Godless servant of Satan and only lives for the here and now and the things and power this world has to offer. A hollow, mortal, soulless husk of flesh.

I’ve seen comments, similar to this, on FreeRepublic before but the virility of the hate in that statement is stunning!
