In a sermon on Sunday during which Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler was prominently mentioned, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan scolded Hillary Clinton in connection with the 1994 crime bill.
During the campaign season, there have been tensions between the Democrat presidential nominee and the Black Lives Matter movement in part because of a speech Hillary Clinton gave, calling for at-risk youth whom she described as “super predators” needing to be brought “to heel.” In context, Clinton was then expressing support for the 1994 Violent Crime Control Act, a.k.a. the crime bill, that her husband, former President Bill Clinton, signed into law.
“In April, Hillary Clinton said she was sorry for what she described as the unintended consequences of the landmark 1994 crime bill signed into law by her husband. Clinton’s past support for the law has come under fire from some African-Americans who say that it has contributed to mass incarceration of young blacks,” Fox News explained.
In his sermon in Chicago, Farrakhan also slammed Republican nominee Donald Trump for being a liar, but also praised him for turning the tables on the media who sought to destroy him.
In reference to Hillary Clinton, the controversial NOI leader who in the past has been accused of anti-Semitism, compared mass incarcerations to Hitler’s genocide against the Jewish people in Europe.
“Now I want to look at Mrs. Clinton for a minute. My dear brothers and sisters, this is serious. Her husband and Joe Biden were the authors of the crime bill that put tens of thousands of black brothers and sisters in prison. So while we were organizing for the Million Man March, they were organizing to put black men and women in jail. Mrs. Clinton backed the crime bill and then called our young people super predators. Of course she apologized, but just a minute. See, Hitler could’ve said to the Jews after Auschwitz, ‘I’m so sorry.’ Would that be enough to satisfy you? You couldn’t satisfy any Jewish person with an apology. Reparations was demanded for the evil of Adolph Hitler to the Jewish people. What will we demand for the evil that has been done to us as a people for 461 years.”
He also criticized Bill Clinton for, when president, removing the safety net from the welfare system and both Clintons for shady dealings when it comes to Haitian relief.
Hillary Clinton’s support for alleged racially motivated abortion also came up in the sermon.
“In 2009, Hillary Clinton received the Margaret Sanger Award from Planned Parenthood. It was Mrs. Sanger who advocated population control of black and poor people. In a 1939 letter, Sanger wrote about getting black preachers to help with her efforts. She said, ‘we don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population’… And when Mrs. Clinton received the award, she says ‘Now I have to tell you that it was a great privilege when I was told that I would receive this award. I admire Margaret Sanger enormously. Her courage. Her tenacity. Her vision’…”
According to Zero Hedge and the New York Times, the Hillary Clinton campaign currently finds itself in panic mode because of low turnout in early voting among the African-American constituency, which usually votes overwhelmingly for the Democrats.
Watch the Louis Farrakhan sermon in its entirety and draw your own conclusions. The Hillary Clinton portion starts at about 2:15.
Separately, in a hidden-camera video released today by James O’Keefe and Project Veritas, a prominent Democrat fundraiser allegedly compared black Americans who vote Republican to Jews who helped Nazi murder other Jews, claiming that they are “seriously f***ed in the head.”
