It seems more than just a bit disingenuous for Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan to declare that his group and his followers, the ones with the children firing piecing, scornful glares at their parents and mall Santas, will be boycotting the traditional celebration of a Christian holiday, Christmas this year.
In an interview on “News One Now,” Farrakhan took it even further, calling upon all black Americans to boycott Christmas in order to hurt white people, calling it a “bonanza for white business.”
Not many people have ever accused Farrakhan of being a closet intellectual or any other kind of great thinker but this scheme is exceptionally ignorant, even by his low standards.
Does he really believe that the only businesses which benefit economically from the Christmas shopping season are those owned by white people? Are black businesses shuttered from Thanksgiving to New Years Day?
What about the millions of black people employed in retail and other outlets that benefit from the Christmas commerce regardless of their ownership? Would Farrakhan have them laid off, reduced in their hours or possibly even terminated in order to make a point against the white devils?
He would never call for a boycott of Ramadan to impress a similar or any other type of message upon Muslims. Their holidays deserve the utmost respect; they’re important, not trivial “commercial ventures” like Christian celebrations.
In an obvious attempt to provide himself with a little protective cover, the Muslim hate-monger then proceeded to instruct Christians as to how to properly observe their holiday in keeping with the Farrakhan ideal. He said, “We intend to boycott Christmas but not Jesus. We think that they have taken advantage of us and our consumer dollars by materializing the respect and honor of Jesus and making it a bonanza for white business.”
He continued, “So on Black Friday, we won’t be there. We choose not to spend dollars on Black Friday, Black Saturday, Black Sunday, Black Monday. We are not going to spend our money for the rest of that year with those that we have traditionally spent our money on.”
So for the rest of the year; if we were to believe what this clown is saying, there won’t be any black people shopping at Walmart, Target, Costco or at Safeway. Instead they’ll be going to the black owned businesses, the kind that they burned to the ground in Ferguson and Baltimore, because they care about who gets the benefit of their patronage.
The Cro-Magnum racist furher illustrates his ignorance and failure to fully think this thing through before announcing it on national television by urging black Americans on Christmas to “Go home, gather the family around the table, take the money that you’ve saved by not spending foolishly and buy good, clean food from an organic food market. Learn how to shop with your own black brother and sister.
Did black people suddenly corner the market on organic food outlets or did this racist hack just suggest a boycott of one group of anonymous white-owned businesses through the patronage of a different group of anonymous white-owned businesses? Are organic food stores the only white owned businesses that are on the safe list? What about white owned liquor stores? What if they just hire a black clerk to trick their customers? That just the kind of trickery you’d expect from those white devils.
The guy’s an idiot. Even more distressing is the fact that, as an idiot, he still has followers. How low does the bar have to be for membership into that collection of misfits? Nothing will ever satisfy his need to feel sorry for himself and power addiction that is fed through the tool of his whiny victimization. It’s pointless to even try. Merry Christmas, Louis – got some coal for ya.
