Nation of Islam Leader Furious After What Netflix Did to Documentary

Published

on

Louis Farrakhan

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.

Legendary Guitarist Set to Boycott Venues Requiring Vaccine Proof

WOW!

With nearly half of Americans now fully vaccinated against COVID-19, the Biden administration has hit a wall.  The folks who are left unvaccinated are, by and large, abstaining by their own decision.  They don’t want a vaccine, and they don’t believe that the federal government has any right to tell them otherwise. But some private companies have begun suggesting that they may institute new regulations that would require customers or users to prove that they’ve been vaccinated in order to interact with them.  This could include some convert venues requiring that ticket holders can prove their vaccine status before seeing their favorite musical acts once they hit the road again. Legendary blues guitarist Eric Clapton isn’t into it.  At all. Eric Clapton has said he will not perform at any venues that require attendees to prove that they have received their full vaccination from the coronavirus. The musician and outspoken vaccine skeptic issued a statement that was highly critical of U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s announcement that vaccine passes would be required to enter nightclubs and other live performance venues in light of increasing coronavirus cases. The “Wonderful Tonight” singer issued a statement on the Telegram account of film producer and architect Robin Monotti, a known COVID-19 vaccination skeptic as well. In it, he issued a direct response to Johnson’s announcement and called the situation for those who do not wish to get the vaccine discriminatory. “Slow hand” got right to the point. “Following the PM’s announcement on Monday the 19th of July 2021 I feel honor-bound to make an announcement of my own,” Clapton said. “I wish to say that I will not perform on any stage where there is a discriminated audience present. Unless there is provision made for all people to attend, I reserve the right to cancel…

Tuckers Crosses Blue Line, Attacks Capitol Police Officer Set to Testify at Capitol

The officer’s lawyers were quick to respond.

Tucker Carlson

It is well understood that passion is a large part of the punditry game.  Human beings want to know that the person delivering their news is invested in the story, (for some reason), and the primetime players are all very aware of this fact. But there are times in which the rabbit hole that they’re chasing stories down becomes too dark, too cavernous for even the most skilled orator, or the fastest on-their-feet thinkers that we have. Sometimes things go a little far in the mainstream media, and the nation at large leers in to rebuke the extremes. Tucker Carlson may very well be having one of these moments. Fox News’ Tucker Carlson sparked outcry Wednesday night when he called Black Capitol police officer Harry Dunn an “angry left-wing political activist.” “On Tuesday, [House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi will call on police officer Harry Dunn. Dunn will pretend to speak for the country’s law enforcement community, but it turns out Dunn has very little in common with your average cop. Dunn is an angry, left-wing political activist,” said Carlson, referring to Dunn’s forthcoming testimony in front of the Congressional committee converged to investigate the deadly Jan. 6 riot. He pointed to social media posts Dunn, who is Black, has made about racism before. The backlash came swiftly. Dunn’s lawyers, David Laufman and Mark Zaid, released a statementWednesday night that read, “Tonight Fox News allowed its host Tucker Carlson, who has not served a day in uniform, whether military or law enforcement, to criticize the heroism and service of African-American U.S. Capitol Police Officer Harry Dunn. Our client has served 13 years in law enforcement and on January 6, 2021, fought against an insurrectionist violent crowd — no doubt many of them Carlson’s supporters — to protect the lives of our elected officials, including…
