Louis Farrakhan

Louis Farrakhan (b. 1933) is the leader of the Nation of Islam, a radical African-American religious, political and social movement. Farrakhan also happens to be a massive bigot, having made innumerable hateful statements against whites, Jews, and gays over the years.[1] As a raving anti-Semite, Farrakhan has promoted various forms of an international Jewish conspiracy, including Jewish ownership of the media and Jews being responsible for the slave trade.[2]

In 2009 he got on the vaccine hysteria bandwagon, claiming that the H1N1 vaccine was in actuality a part of a plan to kill off people in order to ease overpopulation.[3]

Farrakhan supported Robert Mugabe's unconstitutional seizures of Zimbabwean farmland that resulted in that country's food production crashing.[4] He also believes that the U.S. government deliberately demolished a levee following Hurricane Katrina in an effort to force black people out of New Orleans.[5]

Farrakhan expressed admiration of Muammar al-Gaddafi on many occasions and received the Al-Gaddafi International Prize for Human Rights in 1996.[6] He called Barack Obama "America's first Jewish president" because of the 2011 intervention in Libya. [7]

Farrakhan is a supporter of Fidel Castro and the Cuban Revolution, and has had medical operations performed in Cuba.[8] He also denies Cuba's human rights violations.[9]
