Minister Louis Farrakhan advises Kanye West not to apologize to the ADL: "Don't bow to the pressure to apologize to anybody. You said nothing wrong."


During Pt. 49 of his weekly "Time and What Must Be Done Series", which aired on December 14, The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan commented on the harassment of Hip Hop artist Kanye West by the Jewish extremist, Abraham Foxman.

"Now, the ADL has jumped on Kanye West because he said, "Black people don't have the same level of connections as Jewish people. Black people don't have the same connection as oil people." Did he lie? No. He told the truth, and the ADL, Mr. Foxman, issued a press release on the 2nd day of December 2013 and this executive director said, "If the comments are true, as reported, this is classic anti-Semitism." There it goes again, the age old canard that Jews are all-powerful. No, you're not all powerful but you certainly are powerful, and you control the levers of government," said Minister Farrakhan.

"You don't want to admit it but as a celebrity, you're telling Kanye West he should know better. He does know better and that's why he said what he said. Then you said to him: "We hope that he would take responsibility for his words, understand why they are so offensive and apologize to those he has offended.” You know what, Mr. Foxman, I wish you and I could have a dialogue. You wouldn't put that small time stuff over on me that you put on scared-to-death Negroes that if they mentioned Jew and you called them anti-Semitic, they start bowing to you and your pressure? Kanye West, don't bow to the pressure to apologize to anybody. You said nothing wrong. Who are you, Farrakhan, to tell him that he said nothing wrong? I am directly from the Christ and the Messiah. So what I tell you has more weight than anything that these enemies might want to say. You have nothing to apologize for. It is their fear of the truth and that's why it gives me pleasure to defend my brother."
