Earlier this week we reported that streaming service Netflix was going to air a more than likely favorable documentary about Louis Farrakahn, the highly controversial, extremely anti-Semitic leader of the Nation of Islam.
Well, it seems that Netflix was either never planning to air the film, or has opted out of showing it due to the backlash they received for it. Seems likely the latter scenario is the real reason behind their comments on the matter, but perhaps we should give them the benefit of the doubt.
On Tuesday, Netflix clarified what it said was simply a mistake caused by an “internal miscommunication” problem: The platform is not going to air a documentary about Louis Farrakhan, the notorious anti-Semitic leader of the Nation of Islam with ties to key leaders on the Left. After having touted the airing of the documentary to his followers, Farrakhan issued a statement Wednesday expressing his frustration with the announcement and wondering aloud if Netflix wasn’t being honest about why they pulled his film from their release list.
In a statement posted on Twitter Wednesday, Farrakhan said his documentary, “My Life’s Journey Through Music,” was inexplicably pulled by Netflix.
“As late as July 30, 2018, Netflix published that this documentary would be ‘Coming August 1’ on its media platform,” reads the official statement published on his account. “On July 31, 2018, less than 24 hours before the airing of the documentary, the Nation of Islam became aware through news and online outlets that Netflix decided not to air it due to ‘internal miscommunication’. The Nation of Islam has not been informed of what was the alleged ‘internal miscommunication’.”
“The timing of Netflix’s decision – at the 11th hour – to cancel the airing of the documentary affected millions of potential viewers and raises more questions than answers,” the statement continues. “In light of this untimely sequence of events, did Netflix bow to outside forces in canceling the airing of the documentary? Did media pressure contribute to this result? What do the opponents of truth not want you to learn about Minister Farrakhan?”

Not only does this man hate Jewish folk, he’s also a big non-supporter of the LGBTQ community, having made many comments that express his views on the issues quite clearly. If he were Christian the left would be demanding he be shot, hung, stabbed, and quartered. Funny how that works, eh?
The bottom line is, Netflix was about to make a pretty huge mistake. They backtracked and did the right thing. While the company still promotes a godless agenda in most of their media, they do put out some excellent material. Let’s hope they learn from their mistakes and move toward the center.
