- Beck discussed Farrakhan’s recent warning about a possible assassination of President Barack Obama.
- Farrakhan has called Obama a “murderer” and “assassin,“ and Beck said his words constitute ”a clear and present danger to the president.”
- The official newspaper of the Nation of Islam published a piece calling Beck a “minion of the synagogue of Satan” and said it will “not allow such vicious assaults” on Farrakhan.
- The Koran “teaches Muslims to never be the aggressor in word or deed, but if attacked, we fight with those who fight with us.”
The Nation of Islam’s official newspaper The Final Call on Saturday published an opinion piece attacking “minion of the synagogue of Satan” Glenn Beck for his recent comments about Louis Farrakhan, vowing it will “not allow such vicious assaults” on the movement’s leader.
During his radio show Feb. 27, Beck discussed Farrakhan’s warning that racial hatred could lead to an attempt on President Barack Obama’s life, even suggesting that a Muslim could be set up to kill him. Beck wondered whether the warning could be a kind of set up to draw attention from Farrakhan and his followers — Farrakhan in the past has called Obama a “murderer” and “assassin.”
