That they have embraced and defended prominent anti-Semite Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan is unconscionable, Emma Teitel writes.
Honestly, what calamities aren’t the Jews responsible for?
I’m not about to argue that my people are the most maligned in history, but it’s safe to say we are the most creatively maligned.
Not only are we allegedly responsible for the death of Christ, the Black Plague and 9/11, we are also believed to have found time in our extremely busy, evildoing schedules to fake the moon landing, kill Kennedy, train a dolphin to spy on Hamas (that one I actually wish were true), and, according to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, “control agencies of government” like the FBI.
Farrakhan isn’t just the leader of a recognized hate group; he is obsessed with Jewish conspiracy theory.
