For all the talk about how Donald Trump is anti-Muslim, at least one prominent Muslim leader won’t be casting his vote for Hillary Clinton next Tuesday.
Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan has praised Trump — though not for any reasons The Donald would want to brag about. For instance, in response to Trump’s rhetoric about refusing money from special interests, Farrakhan praised him for refusing money from the Jewish community (because apparently everyone who donates money in politics is Jewish in Farrakhan’s world).
It’s doubtful Trump would actually seek Farrakhan’s praise in any case. But as out there as Farrakhan is, his comments about Hillary Clinton are worth sharing, as there’s actually substance behind his points. In fact, Farrakhan makes a number of criticisms of the Democrat Party that Republicans have done a poor job of doing themselves. As the Daily Caller reported: Louis Farrakhan railed against Hillary Clinton during a sermon this past Sunday.
“My dear brothers and sisters, this is serious,” Farrakhan told his congregation. “Her husband and Joe Biden were the authors of the crime bill that put tens of thousands of black brothers and sisters in prison.”
“Mrs. Clinton backed the crime bill and then called our young people super predators. Of course she apologized, but just a minute. See Hitler could’ve said to the Jews after Auschwitz, ‘I’m so sorry.’ Would that be enough to satisfy you?”
“Look at this award that she got,” he continued. “In 2009 Hillary Clinton received the Margaret Sanger Award from Planned Parenthood. It was Mrs. Sanger who advocated population control of black and poor people.”
“In a 1939 letter, Sanger wrote about getting the black preachers to help with her efforts. She said, ‘we don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.’ … And when Mrs. Clinton received the award, [she said] I admire Margaret Sanger enormously. Her courage. Her tenacity. Her vision.’ Now they have to admit that the war on drugs was a war on black people.”
Don’t get me wrong, Farrakhan is a kook, but he’s right about this. The Democrat Party has taken the black vote for granted, despite giving them no reason to continue voting Democrat. “Your people are suffering and dying in the streets of Chicago…. you failed to do what should have been done” he said in a sermon directed towards President Obama back in September. The man may be crazy, but at least he realizes that the Democrat Party has hoaxed the black community into believing they’re on their side.
Democrats don’t fix problems, they subsidize them.
