Nation of Islam chief Minister Louis Farrakhan says regardless of assertions by Fb when it banned him from its platform, he’s not a hater of Jewish folks, not a misogynist nor a homophobe.
Throughout a speech Thursday at a Roman Catholic church on Chicago’s South Aspect, Farrakhan asserted folks shouldn’t be indignant with him if “I stand on God’s phrase.”

Farrakhan was invited to talk on the church by Father Michael Pfleger after Fb banned Farrakhan, conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, conservative commentator Milo Yiannopoulos and others, saying they violated its ban on “harmful people.”
The Archdiocese of Chicago distanced itself from Pfleger’s invitation to Farrakhan to St. Sabina Catholic Church, saying Pfleger didn’t seek the advice of with Cardinal Blase Cupich or different diocese officers.
Pfleger defended his choice to ask Farrakhan to his church, saying he was responding to the Fb ban as a defender of free speech.

Farrakhan has been labelled “America’s main anti-Semite” by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL).
In February, he delivered a speech in Chicago during which he stated, “the highly effective Jews are my enemy,” CNN reported.
“White people are taking place. And Devil goes down,” he stated.
“And Farrakhan, by God’s grace, has pulled the duvet off of that Satanic Jew and I’m right here to say your time is up, your world is thru.”
