A group has put out a report on the entertainment industry and how the industry is negatively impacting their community. If you thought it was Black folk complaining about the violence, hyper-sexualization of women and girls and the negative images associated with Black life, you would be wrong.
Those who are complaining about the music industry are associated with one of the most powerful groups in the country and a group with immense collective power in the billion-dollar business that is often cited as America’s largest export to the world.
The group, Creative Community for Peace, put the 20-page report out July 19 and expressed “concern” about antisemitism in the entertainment industry. That’s interesting because the Jewish community has heavy influence, power, control and actually helped to create the music, movie and entertainment business. The group should have been calling out Jewish executives and owners in the business and demanding that these powerful people and forces stop attacking their own people. Instead, this Jewish group falsely names the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and wrongly accuses him in relationship to their fake issue.
An article in The Jewish Journal, www.jewishjournal.com, July 25 included an interview with the group’s director Ari Ingel saying in 2020 that NFL wide receiver DeSean Jackson “expressed support for Nation of Islam (NOI) leader Louis Farrakhan,” which Mr. Ingel described as problematic. And not just because the football player said something positive about Minister Farrakhan, but because the wide receiver was an example of how Black athletes were drawn to the Minister. “Ingel pointed to how Jackson’s comments were spread to his ‘millions of fans’ on social media,” The Jewish Journal reported.
That’s the real problem: The voice of truth comes, people recognize the truth and the truth exposes the liars, the evil-doers and all those who are condemned by the truth.
So if Twitter can ban, limit or otherwise inhibit the ability of Min. Farrakhan to reach a wide range of people over the social media platform, the enemy does not want others with influence to spread the very truth the Minister speaks. So now all who are associated with the truth are targeted, pushed to apologize or in some way backtrack their support or even acknowledgement of the truth and the light that comes from the words and wisdom that Min. Farrakhan speaks.
Mr. Ingel also complains in the article about “football players, you have basketball players, you have artists in the music industry that are hearing these things” that Min. Farrakhan teaches.
“Ingel pointed to Revolt TV––founded by rapper Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs––broadcasting Farrakhan’s July 4 speech in 2020 as the event that preceded the Jackson incident as well (as) Chelsea Handler sharing a clip of a Farrakhan speech on social media,” the article noted.
Again, the core of the message in the article is a determination to stop the message of Min. Farrakhan from spreading. Why? If any message is flawed or faulty, people can see and hear it. But if the message is illuminating, clear, impeccably crafted by God’s grace and so plain a foolish people can clearly understand it, it is a threat to the very existence of those who have lived well off of the ignorance of Black people in America and the 85 percent of the people in the world who believe in a Mystery God. They don’t know the law of cause and effect and don’t understand the reality of God and Satan manifested in the thinking and actions of living human beings.
These constant attacks on the Minister and ever-present efforts to keep people away from him, those who are affected by him and those who follow him is further proof of the truth that he teaches and its power. A lie only is effective so long as the truth is not present. The presence of truth destroys lies, so to defeat falsehood one need only to speak or present the truth. But if truth is called a lie that doesn’t change the nature of truth. The truth remains, can be proven in no limit of time and those who actually hear the truth or see the man of truth speaking will receive the message.
That’s why the man and the light of truth must be shut out by the enemy and explains his determination to do so. But we are in the day of the triumph of the truth and the death of untruths so those who believe in the truth and the man of truth must continue to tell and fight for the truth.
Early in his life as a Muslim, Min. Farrakhan was faced with the choice of leaving a thriving career in music, which he had virtually devoted his life to, or leaving the Nation of Islam. Within minutes of being told this news, he made his decision: he could live without a successful music career but he could not live without truth. He decided to stay the course as a Muslim and the result has been an incredible blessing to our people and the world through Allah’s (God’s) power and beneficence.
We must decide that we cannot live without truth and redouble our efforts to speak, spread and defend the truth. Allah (God) promises us in the Holy Qur’an, the book of scripture of the Muslims, that this is the day of judgment and the day of triumph for His servants. Nothing the enemy does can stop that which the Supreme Being has decreed. But as those who have benefited from and who know the truth, we must stand strong on it and share it. So we must actively live out these beautiful lyrics: “We are fighting for Islam and we will surely win, With our Saviour Allah the Universal King.”
So Muslims let us be brave fighters for the truth and unswerving in our defense of the man of truth.
