Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan can’t seem to stay out of the news these days. The infamous antisemite showed up in Chicago at St. Sabina Catholic Church as an invited guest of Father Michael Pfleger. With all of the focus on antisemitism among some liberals these days and Farrakhan’s influential position among Democrats, he was apparently trying to clear the air and demonstrate how he’s really not such a Jew hater after all. Of course, he probably didn’t help his cause much by invoking the phrase “Satanic Jews.” (CBS Chicago)
Days after being banned from Facebook, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan is fighting back with some help from Father Michael Pfleger, and while denying he is anti-Semitic, he claimed, Im here to separate the good Jews from the Satanic Jews.
During a speech Thursday night at St. Sabina, Pfleger asked everyone to stream Farrakhans appearance live on social media.
Pfleger welcomed a packed church before introducing his invited guest.
This is the same Facebook that has been live streaming shootings, attempted rapes, white supremacists, racial name calling and countless other violent and racist acts, Pfleger said.
Well, I’m glad we finally cleared that up. You see, Farrakhan doesn’t hate all of the Jews. Just the Satanic ones. Got it.
You might wonder how he wound up addressing the congregation at a Catholic Church, but his host wasn’t exactly a stranger to controversy. Father Michael Pfleger has made a habit of showing up in the news on a regular basis for quite some time now. You may recall back in the 2008 Democratic primary when he gave a sermon where he talked about Hillary Clinton’s white privilege and how she was crying after Barack Obama showed up to “steal her show.” (Pfleger is white.)
He was also caught on a hot microphone threatening to kill the owner of a gun shop in Chicago, though he later apologized. He got into so many run-ins with then-Bishop Francis George that the Bishop suspended him from administering the Sacraments in 2011. (The suspension was lifted later that same year.)
This appearance also seemed to catch the church by surprise. The Archdiocese of Chicago quickly released a statement about Farrakhan’s appearance, saying that they had not sponsored the event and that Cardinal Cupich was not consulted prior to the invitation being made. They also condemned “discriminatory rhetoric of any kind,” without specifically calling out Farrakhan by name or quoting his “Satanic Jews” comment.
Whenever I bring Farrakhan up, I almost always get some pushback from Democrats on social media saying that he’s just a “fringe” figure and doesn’t represent mainstream liberalism or the Democratic Party. But they sure seem to keep electing people who rush to Farrakhan’s defense at the drop of a hat. And as long as you’ve got a bunch of Farrakhan apologists making the headlines on a regular basis, denials of an uptick in antisemitism ring rather hollow.
is Farrakhan considered a “Democrat”?
Do you have people in your life that you look to for guidance?
Well, my pastor [Jeremiah Wright] is certainly someone who I have an enormous amount of respect for.
I have a number of friends who are ministers. Reverend Meeks is a close friend and colleague of mine in the state Senate. Father Michael Pfleger is a dear friend, and somebody I interact with closely.
Im here to separate the good Jews from the Satanic Jews.
Is there like some written exam to tell the difference or is it oral?
Or is it strictly a YES or NO question?
He has gotten away with his hate for too long. It’s because he has protective pigmentation, plus he’s in the world’s most violent religion.
Democrats have 2 reasons for giving him a free pass.
Well, this does open the door for us to discuss Muhammadins , doesn’t it... ..
Father Michael Pfleger?
That clown makes the Pope appear to be almost Catholic.
Yes, they were.
Malcolm X was unavailable for comment.
While his followers are killing Jews, how does he communicate to them which ones are Satanic and which would should be spared?
This is a preposterous CYA statement. Farrakhan’s many followers are totally anti-Jewish.
Among the average African American population some studies said 40-42 per cent are anti-Jewish. They are falsely educated in myths and slanders such as “all the government is run by Jews behind the scenes” and “all the the banks are controlled by Jews”.
Actually the financial leaders usually look like Ted Knight in Caddyshack. or these women (note the name Rania Ashar)——
Farrakhan’s various rants are ridiculous-—and fatally dangerous if followers put it into action.
There is a way to separate the good Democrats from the satanic Democrats.
Its a red baseball cap. MAGA.

I’m guessing that to Farrakhan, “Good Jews” are the Jews who meekly accept (and explain away) antisemitic outrages. “Satanic Jews” are the ones who don’t do that.
Example: Farrakhan has called Judaism a “dirty religion”.
“Good Jew”: Ah, well, Minister Farrakhan might have a point. Because sometimes some Jews do bad things. Or maybe he was quoted out of context.
“Satanic Jew”: There he goes with his hate again.
Based on his death at the hands of the other faction of American Muslims, my buddy in college would never sit at the corner outside row with his back to an entrance in any restaurant. He said "That's the position where the gunmen rushed in to kill Malcom X."
It appears black muslims are also allowed to use taqiyya.
No. farrakan is considered by most as a feral nitwit.
Sure, and I’m the queen of England.
Of course Looie, your “Nation of Islam” is Satanic, therefore your statement obviously was pro semetic.
More of a physical test, are they breathing?
He is welcomed by them.
Obviously the radiation shield has fallen off the Ministers spacecraft for him to make this statement.
