Hatred of Peace™

It just goes to show, you don’t have to be the president of Iran to be a hatemongering antisemite.

Standing up for what he says and believes, a very candid Louis Farrakhan preaches a message some may interpret as one of hate.

Minister Farrakhan did not hold back or hold his tongue Sunday afternoon as he addressed thousands at the annual Saviors’ Day.

CBS 2’s Dana Kozlov reports on speech that some may consider controversial.

“Ah yea, they are going to hate what I say and accuse me of teaching hate, but I’ll die on what I say,” Farrakhan said.

The Nation of Islam leader may have unknowingly addressed the source of a week-long controversy during his annual Saviors’ Day speech.

Illinois gubernatorial candidate Ron Gidwitz, the Anti-Defamation League and at least one state lawmaker are upset that Gov. Rod Blagojevich appointed Farrakhan’s director of protocol, Claudette Marie Johnson, to the state’s discrimination and hate crimes commission.

The backlash came to a head when Johnson invited commission members to this speech, often filled, critics say, with inflammatory, anti-Semitic comments.

“You are a weak nation now and your country has been taken from you by the synagogue of Satan. They own Congress. That’s why the Congress ain’t right,” Farrakhan said.

Ah, the The Religion of Peace™.  Something sure ain’t right there.  What is it about Islam that turns all its adherents into rabid Jew haters?
