BIN: On Thursday, Facebook removed a video of Minister Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam movement, in which he compares Jews to termites. Twitter allowed the video to stand, saying it does not constitute hate speech.
The video appeared on social media last Wednesday with the caption, “I’m not an anti-Semite; I’m anti-Termite”. In the video, Farrakhan gave a sermon in which he compared Jews to termites.
“To the members of the Jewish community that don’t like me, thank you very much for putting my name all over the planet because of your fear of what we represent I can go anywhere in the world — I’m not mad at you because you’re so stupid,” he said at the speech in Detroit. “So when they talk about Farrakhan, call me a hater — you know what they do — call me an anti-Semite, stop it! I’m anti termite!” more …
Opinion: I hate giving Louis Farrakhan any publicity and I was prepared to ignore this whole sordid story but the picture at the top is almost worse than the termite comparison.
Anyone who would stand next with this man is endorsing him.
