BLM Movement Supports Louis Farrakhan’s Anti-Semitic Sentiments
Nation of Islam leader, Louis Farrakhan is receiving more attention than usual, thanks to the Black Lives Matter movement. Celebrities have been attending his speeches and sharing his messages on social media. Farrakhan in his 4th of July speech said Jews hate him because he reveals their wickedness, and Israel is the reason guns, drugs, and counterfeit money are in the black neighborhoods. Farrakhan has a long history of making anti-Semitic remarks about Israel and the Jewish people.
There is recorded audio and video of him making very anti-Semitic … that’s the hatred of the Jewish people … and anti-Israel statements. But this isn’t a surprise that the Black Lives Matter movement is becoming anti-Semitic. The issue is, anytime leftists are controlling a movement, it often turns into an opportunity for anti-Semitic and anti-Israel sentiment.
For instance, the Occupy Wall Street movement blamed the Jewish people for their economic problems. The Women’s March recently was plagued with anti-Semitic board members who actually had to step down because it got so bad. And now the Black Lives Matter movement is taking the same path.
Sadly, anti-racism movements often foster anti-Semitism. Which sounds like an oxymoron, but it isn’t. In reality, it always tends to go toward anti-Israel and anti-Semitic sentiments. So during this difficult time, please continue to pray for Israel and the Jewish people.
