Louis Farrakhan told a crowd in Chicago in February that he is Jesus, the Messiah.
“God does not love this world,” he said in his Nation of Islam Saviour’s Day keynote address. “God never sent Jesus to die for this world. Jesus died because he was 2,000 years too soon to bring about the end of the civilization of the Jews. He never was on a cross, there was no Calvary for that Jesus.”
Farrakhan went on to claim that he is the real son of God, sent to save the world.
“The real story is what I tried to tell you from the beginning,” he said. “It didn’t happen back there. It’s happening right while you’re alive looking at it. I represent the Messiah. I represent the Jesus and I am that Jesus. If I am not, take my life.”
According to a report on the speech published on foxnews.com on Thursday afternoon, Farrakhan told his followers that some people reject him because “the white man” has said he is evil, that he’s a hater and an anti-Semite.
“Here I am in front of you,” he said. “I represent the Jesus that saves. I don’t represent somebody that came to judge you and me for our errors and mistakes…Everywhere I went I found myself rejected. My black people, they accepted me.”
He said white people are now “frightening the hell out of black people” with college presidents punished for allowing him or anyone who represents him to appear on a college campus, saying they fear what’s in his mouth, which is from “the Honorable Elijah Muhammad.”
Farrakhan also took the opportunity to explain what he meant when he wrote on Twitter on Oct. 16, 2018: “I’m not an anti-Semite. I’m anti-Termite.”
According to Fox News, Farrakhan said he didn’t mean he thought all Jews are termites, but that the “richest 10 percent of Americans” who own “84 percent of all stocks” are the termites.
On a visit to Iran in the fall of 2018, Farrakhan led a “Death to Israel” chant.
Louis Farrakhan has been the leader of the Nation of Islam since the 1977.
The Nation of Islam was founded by Elijah Mohammed, a former Baptist minister and sharecropper born in Sandersville, Georgia.
