He's Back

Farrakhan hosted by Chicago church, rants about 'satanic Jews'


Notorious antisemite Louis Farrakhan resurfaced after being banned by Facebook at a church in Chicago, ranting about "satanic Jews."

The leader of the racist Nation of Islam cult, who has a long history of antisemitic statements, appeared at the Saint Sabina Catholic Church in a speech that was, ironically, livestreamed on Facebook.

"I don't have no army. I just know the truth. And I'm here to separate the good Jews from the satanic Jews," he said to the audience.

According to The Hill, Farrakhan also accused the Jews of promoting pedophilia and claimed he "exposes their hatred of Jesus."

Despite or perhaps because of his Jew-hatred, Farrakhan is admired by several leftist leaders, including Women's March co-head Tamika Mallory and antisemitic Israel-hater Linda Sarsour.

Jonathan Greenblatt, head of the Anti-Defamation League, said it was "deeply disappointing that [Farrakhan] was given a platform in a church to spew his hateful vitriol."

"It's typical that even in defending himself against claims of anti-Semitism, Louis Farrakhan has once again invoked more anti-Jewish hatred," said Greenblatt.

"His remarks last night were vintage Farrakhan," he added. "A litany of tropes about how 'Satanic Jews' are corrupting society with immoral acts and that Jewish writings, 'promote pedophilia.'"
