Nation of Islam Leader Saturday: Kwame Kilpatrick victim of FBI plot to remove blacks

Farrakhan on KilpatrickNation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan suggested this weekend that the imprisonment former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick and other black politicians is part of a national plot to kick African Americans out of office.

“They say we have the right to vote, and after we vote our own into office, the FBI schemes to trick and trap our elected officials to turn them out of office,” Farrakhan said during his weekly address, while showing photos of Kilpatrick and other jailed black officials.

Kilpatrick, who was convicted on 24 counts in a corruption case in which he enriched himself by rigging contracts, is awaiting sentencing.

Also during the broadcast, Farrakhan reiterated his belief that Jews operate the entertainment industry and churn out negative portrayals of black people in an evil plot to control the world.

“These satanic minds encourage the savagery,” he said.

While in Detroit on May 17, Farrakhan made similar statements and also sought to downplay Kilpatrick’s crimes, saying the former mayor was primarily trying to hide a private affair.

“How many of you in this audience got a little something on the side?”

  • “If a little something on the side….” is just adulterous activity in a non-open marriage, then that’s one thing. (And not a good thing, at that.) But if it’s millions and millions of dollars in bribes….then he can sit next to Blagojevic in federal prison and try to find away to pin this on the closest rabbi.

  • Steve: why do you waste time reporting on this type of stuff? Are you working to perpetuate the fact that this guy is just another religious wacko with a racial agenda? Or are you simply reporting it because he has a case of terminal verbal diarrhea and practically everything that spews from his mouth is humorous?

      That’s a good question, and I’ve been thinking a lot about it. I’ve decided to keep an eye on him for two reasons: 1) He has incredible influence in Detroit. 2) I think he’s on the verge of losing his mind, and my fear is that he’s going to call for violence against an invisible “Satanic Synagogue.” The idea is to let this guy’s words speak for themselves. I’ve listened to his stuff in the past out of curiosity, and he’s a much more paranoid man now.

        3) Someone from these parts likely dialed 1-800-Farrakhan to get the ball rolling.

      • Do you really think he has that much influence over the people and politics of Detroit or do you feel that it is merely perceived influence? Sure, he was asked to speak on behalf of a large congregation but was it because he had pontificated on ideas that might solve Detroit’s dilemmas or was it because of a significant following? I think it is the former more than the latter. Based on the conversation he has created over the past couple of weeks, I am lead to believe that his influence is more perceived than prolific.

          There is another Detroit, a rather large one existing outside of downtown and Midtown. Tension is high and conditions are grim in the other one. Keeping a watchful eye is good.

  • Farrakhan conveniently forgets that 99% of the time the targeted “leader” who happens to be black is replaced by someone who shares that common trait. Oh, and that there is another Chicagoan who has lived in Washington D.C. for the past 4+ years who seems to throw a wrench in this theory also. All that has been proved is that black politicians have just as much ability to be corrupt as white politicians.

    As far as the entertainment industry… if you amend that broad statement to say the music industry is run by white people who put on a minstrel show which promotes a violent and ignorant culture in an evil plot to make a ton of money, then I’d have to agree. But then he has to make broad & crazy statements, as he tends to make a ton of money himself in doing it.

    Kwame & Co. put themselves in the trickbag and left the front doors of the Manoogian Mansion standing wide open.

    When Minister Farrakhan deals with basic civil rights issues, he is right on target. But when he gets off into the paranoid type of thing like he did this week, and the anti-Semitism, he loses me.
