Rahm welcomes help from Farrakahn, ignores anti-Semitic remarks

BY FRAN SPIELMAN City Hall Reporter fspielman@suntimes.com July 25, 2012 4:56PM

Updated: July 26, 2012 2:21AM

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.

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.

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 wonder what Farrakhan’s views on gay marriage are?

Just curious . . .

That's a very perceptive question, and one most people don't ask themselves. We are conditioned to jump from one "angle" to another; ie, from fighting the "gays" to fighting the moslems; from fighting the moslems to fighting the secular humanists; from fighting the secular humanists to fighting angry Blacks (who worship as if they were right wing snake-handling hillbillies but who don't vote that way).

I learned from a lifetime of watching professional wrestling (the old timey kind, not the kind we have now) that the marks aren't supposed to think about the contradictions too much. They're supposed to go from booing one heel to booing another, whether the heel is an evil foreigner or the local bully.

Farrakhan may claim to be against "gay marriage." I believe he delivered a speech once blaming homosexuality on "Hollywood Jews." I believe he also claims to be against abortion. BUT--he always endorses, works with, and campaigns for the Black Left. And yes, he uses those very words. He supports the Black Left, all the while claiming to disagree with the Left's social positions.

My personal conclusion: the man is a fraud. Also, according to some FReepers the entire NOI is a fraud. We all know it's not really islamic at all, but some FReepers claim that it doesn't believe in G-d at all; that it claims the G-d that exists outside oneself is a creation of the white man but the "real 'gxd'" is within oneself.

I can't imagine a more mixed up movement.

In Hebrew the name is spelled `ayin-mem-nun-vav-'alef-lamed. The mem has a dot called a dagesh in it that means it is doubled. "Emmanuel" and "Emanuel" are both transliterations of the same name; one simply ignores the dot. But they're both trasliterations of the exact same word.

Just try and find a birth on the Mother Ship, sarcastic White Devil.

Me? I ain't worried. Louie done promise me the Kenny Bunk.

Seriously though, Calypso Louie and the President's revival of The Freedman's Bureau for Negro Education should do the trick on the black-on-black murder rate, especially if the Treasury Department follows through on my suggestion to confiscate gold "grillwork." That, and taking every last cent from those who make more than $35,000 per year ought to snap us right out of this Depression.

So you're saying that by supporting "gay rights" and the Nation of Islam Emanuel is carrying out policies of the Israeli government? Would you care to support that assertion?

When I first came to FreeRepublic there were a great many thoughtful, energetic, patriotic folk here, who were dedicated to the goal of maintaining freedom for our republic. Nowadays, more often than not, it’s about assuaging one’s ego and venting bile. It’s not persuasive. This is the wrong forum.

When I first came to Free Republic it was crawling with anti-Semites (though there were just as many, if not more, philo-Semites). Some people even used the names of notorious Nazis as their screen names.

One by one they gradually got kicked off. The big turning point was 9/11. There have been very few anti-Semites here since then. Unfortunately, there are still some here, as this thread demonstrates.

Believe me . . . FR is much better than it was back in '99 when it was polluted by people like Okierddust, Gecko, The_King_of_Ithaca, Tex-Oma, etc.

Parse much to fit your agenda?

Communists are my enemy. The proclivity of Jews, (or perhaps you prefer “jews”), toward that political orientation is a known fact.

If seek to align with a “jew” like Emanuel that is much more YOUR problem than mine.

To play your ignorant insulting game, which anti-Christian groups do you get along with “swimmingly”?

Gross mischaracterization. “Ego” has absolutely nothing to do with it.

You just don’t like the plain fact that I pointed out that the odious commie Emanuel is a Jew.

I’m Catholic and have even GREATER disdain for “catholic” Commies. I have stated the same here often.

I'm not Jewish. Does that surprise you? You know what I am? I'll tell you. I'm a redneck Bible-thumper from the rural Upper South. And apparently I interpret the Bible much more literally than you do, since you believe G-d made a mistake when he elected Israel.

Perhaps you haven't noticed that there are more chrstian liberals than Jewish liberals. Black chrstians (who worship like hillbillies) are much more responsible for what has happened in this country than are any Jews. But perhaps they don't count. What about Hispanic Catholics? They're part of the grand liberal alliance and there are many more Hispanics than there are Jews. Why are "chrstian" Blacks and Hispanics so liberal? Did the Jews do that to them?

Then there are the mainline "liberal" Protestants, the Catholic Bishops (who are Marxists on all but social issues), and the many ancient ethnic churches who either never utter a peep about the moral crisis or automatically vote Democrat because the Republicans are "mean" to immigrants.

Finally, I am anti-chrstian for a very simple reason: it's a false religion! It is unauthorized by the Torah. It's no different than islam, mormonism, sikhism, b*ddhism, hinduism, or any other false religion. G-d spoke at Sinai and gave His laws to the world (the Torah for Jews, the Noachide Laws for non-Jews). It was chrstianity that introduced the idea of "change" and evolution in religion (G-d said this once, but He's allegedly changed His mind) and said "render unto Caesar," planting the seed of separation of religion and state. Much of the liberal rot attacking chrstianity is the natural result of its claims that G-d's laws changed at some point. If they changed once, why shouldn't they change again and again?

But never mind. You're all worked up against Bibi Netanyahu for ordering Ram Emanuel to support "gay rights" and the NOI. So just go ahead and spew.

Your self-admitted "hate" for "Jew commies" (or was it "commie Jews?) seems to indicate that you believe Communism is a Jewish plot. There are lots of people who believe that, and there used to be lots of them on this very forum.

Granted people often say stupid things when they're very emotional, but you really need to pay more attention to what you're posting.

Perhaps you are unaware that personal attacks are against the rules here?

I've been defending rednecks and Fundamentalist Protestants on FR for over thirteen years. For you to (in so many words) accuse me of lying is quite over-the-top.

I don't know what has gotten you so mad at me now, since I thought we had reached a truce. Was it because I was honest in stating my religious beliefs? I'm a Noachide and most people at FR know that (since I've been here over thirteen years). The world is full of people who are anti-religion and lie about it. I merely openly state my belief as a Noachide that chrstianity is a false religion and that all non-Jews are supposed to be Noachides, just as all Catholics think everyone should be Catholic and all Protestants think everyone should be Protestant. You're mad at me for simply revealing my religious affiliation?
