Louis Farrakhan Thinks There Are ‘Good Jews’ — Who Knew?

Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, made reference to “good Jews” and 9/11 conspiracy theories in a speech at in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, RNS reported. Farrakhan spoke at the Watergate Hotel for over two hours, touching on race, North Korea and Donald Trump.

“I am here from my teacher, not out of hate but out of hope that maybe what I say to this 45th president of the United States of America might have an effect to get him off the course that he is on,” Farrakhan said.

Farrakhan spoke next to a large poster that read, “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, Volume II: How Jews Gained Control of the Black American Economy.”

“There are righteous Jews, good Jews, Jews that want to practice the teachings of the prophets,” he said. “But then there are others who don’t wish to practice and it is they that hated Reverend Jackson’s desire to be president.”

Farrakhan also suggested that Muslims were framed for 9/11, and seemed to suggest that Flint was a government conspiracy.
