There’s an old adage that says, there’s a first time for everything. And there is obviously a lot of truth in that. Because had you ever told me that there would come a day when I would find myself actually agreeing with ANYTHING that would have ever come out of the mouth of 'Calypso Louie' Farrakhan I would have told you that you were completely insane. But, as they also say, “Truth is stranger than fiction.” But, that said, truth is something you hear very little of when listening to ‘Calypso Louie.’
You see. It was just this past Sunday, there at the Nation of Islam, that ‘Calypso Louie’ said don’t “fall” for Democrat presidential candidate Hitlery Clinton’s “crap” on African-American issues because she and her husband, ex-president ‘Slick Willie’ Clinton are responsible for mass incarceration of black people. Now while I disagree with his rationale for doing so, I do agree, and very much so, with his conclusion that blacks should always avoid falling for the crap that they hear coming from Hitlery.
Anyway, it was this past Sunday that Louie said, “How many of you are going to vote for Hillary Clinton? You don’t have to raise your hands. I do not blame you for wanting a female president, but that is a wicked woman. She can be sweet but so can you. And you know when you are sweet but playing a game. All of a sudden she knows about Trayvon Martin. All of a sudden—the boy’s been dead two years now—she talking about him like she met the mother and oh… White people this is Satan.”
And he would go onto say, “And you fall for that crap? Most of you went to jail for having a little blunt. They arranged that—the Clintons. Mass incarceration came about under the Clintons, Don’t forget that. They call my young gang bangers super predators. And Black Lives Matter put it to her—she didn’t know how to handle that. Call you a super predator, that has no conscience, no sense of dignity like you are a dog, an animal.” But if we can be honest here, his rhetoric is no better than Hitlery’s.
And ‘Louie’ would ramble on still further by saying, “She gotta bring you to heal you my young brothers. This is what she said about you and she didn’t just say it—it became law and policy of the U.S. government under Bill Clinton and his wife, and now she is apologizing, but apologizing can’t bring back the broken families. Apologizing can’t bring back those that been destroyed in prison life.” Maybe those whose lives have been destroyed in prison shouldn’t have broken the law. What a concept.
But it would seem to me, being just a old white guy with some level of commonsense, that if ‘Minister’ Farrakhan was truly interested in improving the lives of those in the black community he would set about trying to show, point by point, exactly how it is that the Democrat Party has proceeded to decimate the black family. But that doesn’t seem to be his true objective here, despite the fact that he is a man of God. Because it would seem that he seeks only to spread his own kind of ‘crap’.
Look, if we’re being honest here, the number of black men currently behind bars can be directly related to the political party to which blacks have continually been encouraged, by men like Louie, to pledge their loyalty. Over the course of the last 50 years blacks have been convinced by various so-called ‘leaders’ of their community of the supposed ‘benefits’ of essentially voluntarily enslaving themselves to what continues to be described to them as the party of compassion. But it’s all a lie.
And Another thing, if ‘Louie’ were truly interested, which he so obviously is not, in rectifying the issue which he professes to be so concerned about, he has a rather curious way of demonstrating it. By appearing less interested in addressing it than he is in simply using to further incite racial hatred, he tends to focus on those things which serve only to inflame. Hatred has never solved anything, and yet that is all he is selling here. What if he were to spend more time talking about such things as personal responsibility?
And while most of what he said should be considered as nothing more than the ravings of a mad man, judging by what I know of those who follow this hate-filled man of God, there were likely, just as there were in the congregation of ‘Rev.’ Jeremiah Wright, a great many who were likely to be seen nodding their head in agreement as they listened to Louie spew his rather unique brand of racist drivel. But whenever you listen to any of these religious frauds all you ever hear is hate, hate and more hate!
