This weekend in Washington, D.C., Louis Farrakhan and his Nation of Islam are sponsoring the "Millions More March". It is billed as a sort of followup to the "Million Man March" from a decade ago. You remember, the one that changed all those folks and created a lasting, positive influence in the black community? Oh, wait, that didn't happen. Sorry. That anyone of any sanity level is listening to this guy and his goons is incredible. Farrakhan, who once said that back in 1985 he was taken in a vision to a mountaintop, where a UFO beamed him up, and there he met with the Islamic prophet Elijah Mohammad and given messages to deliver to the people. Yikes. But that isn't insanity enough. In 1997 he said: "A decree of death has been passed on America. The judgement of God has been rendered and she must be destroyed...". In 2000 he told our own Philadelphia Inquirer: "White people are potential humans…they haven’t evolved yet." He has implied that the U.S. created World War II for monetary reasons, that we created the 9/11 attacks to start a war to control oil, and that we blew up the levees in New Orleans to erase their poor black population. Louis Farrakhan is a fraud, and anyone that follows him is a fool, plain and simple.
