Ishmael Muhammad, national assistant minister to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, said in his July 12, 2020 speech that … the Jews control Hollywood and the music industry. The Jews, he said, are the “architects of the filth [that] has led to the perversity of [American] society and culture.”
FIRST (read ‘knee jerk’) REACTION:
Another vile, know-nothing anti-Semite spouting more random lies just to excite his base, etc.
We know that the mission of the Jew, as ‘chosen people’ is to be the standard-bearer of morality in society. That morality is the code of conduct given to us in the divine Torah. It’s no secret that today many of our brethren, perhaps by no fault of their own, but due to lack of awareness and education, not only fail to adhere to this code and this mission but have unfortunately reached and maintained a high-profile within social, cultural and political movements that espoused values endemic to (Torah defined) morality.
Mr. Muhammad wasn’t the only one to make this observatio. Another non-Jew had this to say about what he observed that caused him to adopt a negative opinion about Jews:
“…Nothing gave me more cause for reflection than the gradually increased insight into the activities of Jews in certain fields. Was there any form of filth or profligacy, above all in cultural life, in which at least one Jew did not participate? … The Jews’ activity in the press, in art, literature, and the theater, as I learned to know it, did not add to their credit in my eyes. All unctuous assertions were of little or no avail. It was sufficient to look at the billboards, to read the names of those who produced these awful works for theaters and movies if one wanted to become hardened for a long time. This was pestilence, spiritual pestilence with which the people were infected, worse than the Black Death of former times! …It could not be overlooked how terrible it was that the Jew above all was chosen in so great a number for this disgraceful task. Was this to prove the fact that the Jews were the chosen people?
“Carefully I began to examine the names of those who created these unclean products of artistic life. The result had a devastating influence on my previous attitude towards the Jews. No matter how much my feeling resisted, reason had to draw its own conclusions.
“The fact was not to be denied that ninety per cent of all literary and artistic rubbish and of theatrical humbug was due to a race which hardly amounted to one-hundredth of all inhabitants of the country. Yet it was so. Now I also began to examine my beloved ‘world press’ from this point of view. The deeper I probed, the more the subject of my former admiration diminished. I could no longer stand its style, I had to reject its contents on account of its shallowness, the objectivity of its presentation seemed untrue rather than honest truth; the authors, however, were Jews…
“Now I did not evade the discussion of the Jewish question any longer; no, I sought it out. As I learned to look for the Jew in every field of our cultural and artistic life, I suddenly bumped against him in a place where I had never suspected. The scales dropped from my eyes when I found the Jew as the leader of Social Democracy. This put an end to a long internal struggle.”
BUT, SO WHAT?
Even if some looneys decry what they see as disproportionate Jewish involvement in cultural contexts that espouse anti-Torah values and morality, and even if there might be some truth to their claim, it’s just harmless venting that won’t affect our lives.
Because that second quote, which reflected some of the same observations of Mr. Muhammad and many more of today’s critics, was stated by someone named … ADOLPH HITLER (ym”sh). (Mein Kampf, Houghton Mifflin edition, Pgs.75-78)
THE CAR IS ABOUT TO GO OVER THE CLIFF – AGAIN – BUT THIS TIME WE CAN SEE IT HAPPENING. BUT, I SINCERELY ASK YOU, WHAT CAN WE DO?
