Ian Hanchett, Breitbart, shares Louis Farrakhan's comments about the Confederate flag controversy and his hate for "white folks" and the police.
Louis Farrakhan stated “We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag” in remarks before the Metropolitan AME Church in Washington, DC on Wednesday first reported by DC’s WMAL.Democrats, including Obama, need to condemn their friend Farrakhan's repulsive remarks, assuming they believe his words are despicable.
Farrakhan said, “White folks march with you because they don’t want you upsetting the city, they don’t give a damn about them nine.”
He added that when the police took suspected shooter Dylann Roof to Burger King they were saying “You did a good job. Kill all them [bleep.]”
Later, he declared, “I don’t know what the hell the fight is about over the Confederate flag. We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag,” comments that were meant with cheers and applause. He added, “Who are we fighting today? It’s the people that carry the American flag.”
The rhetoric is out of control. It's inexcusable.
Farrakhan's statement that police commended Dylann Roof for killing those nine innocent people in church is beyond disgusting.
We need leaders to step up and speak some sense, quieting the insane, hateful voices.
Occupied with more pressing business like playing golf or schmoozing at fundraisers or doing interviews with media giants like Marc Maron?
It seems like Roof and Farrakhan have a similar goal. They both want to incite a race war.
Of course, Farrakhan didn't gun down nine people, but his words are so incendiary that he could be encouraging a nutjob to lash out violently at whites and police officers and anyone displaying the American flag, symbol of oppression.
Why are so many people out there trying to create racial conflict?
Something to keep in mind: Obama is president. He really needs to serve as a uniter. If he wanted to, he could.
A positive message is in order.
