And in other news: the sky is blue, water is wet and our economy is not doing so hot.

Seriously, why is this a headline? This stark revelation makes him no different than Al Sharpton – it’s media pimpdom. “Oh, I’m out of the news for a little while, so what can I talk about that will make the spotlight shine brighter in my relaxed hair?”

It’s a perfect storm really. Muslims. 9/11. Obama. And now Farrakhan. Well, Mazel Tov brother minister.

Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan said Thursday an Islamic community center and mosque planned near ground zero should be built because Muslims were among those of many faiths who died in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. “Why then should a mosque, a cultural center, not be constructed a few blocks away?” Farrakhan asked at a news conference in Washington, where he was joined by a coalition of African-American Muslims.

Barack Obama and Louis Farrakhan

See who is looking over your shoulder?

Let’s play that same game of logic, shall we brother minister?

You know, Jews died in the 9/11 attacks as well, so would you mind having interfaith dinners at the fellowship hall of said mosque. You would rather kiss a white woman, wouldn’t you?

This is separatist prattling as usual. Get that, “joined by a coalition of African-American Muslims.” Yes, there are a bevy of white Muslims but none of them stand for the “white man is the devil.”

Sure, they abstain from pork and pray five times daily, as all good Islamic believers do, but they have that pigment issue that prevents them from being asked to break bread.

Yes, Muslims have a certain unalienable right to practice their religion in America. Yes, stereotypes exist in this country. And yes, thanks to the tragic attacks on 9/11, Muslims are the ire of every evil stereotype there is, despite the right to avoid them.

There are good-minded, kind-spirited Muslims everywhere. There are also sardonic human beings that are extremist swine that murder in the name of their religion. Likewise, there are benevolent people who love Jesus Christ and represent him daily. There are also malevolent, twisted people who propagate their pablum to pad their pockets and mislead people, all under the guise of God and blessings.

The point is this: When you talk religion, you will hack off half the people in any room. And why? Because of the extremists. They exist in any religion, or lack thereof (I can think of a few Atheists that go way out of bounds).

MEMO to Farrakhan, while some televangelists and false prophets are creating a rouse to swindle money and fake healings, none of them got on a jet and killed thousands of people because they believed heaven was a place of vestal virgins waiting to congratulate them.

Do us all a favor? Go find a real cause and speak on that. Your support for the Ground Zero Mosque is about as inevitable as President Obama supporting one of your shindigs on the same day he is expected to have lunch with a gaggle of black pastors.

Moving on…

Have you ever been watching TV and see a report from an oil magnate, like the CEO of “Big Oil, Inc.” who is issuing an apology to his investors for being down in the first quarter… yet that company still made $3.4 billion?!

This appalling story of resounding bad form and complete disregard for anyone is like that.

Meet ‘Cordoba House’, as the story details in the Christian Post.

"Never Forget". How about "Anyone Still Remember?"

Anyone remember that cataclysmic event known solely for its infamous date? 9/11? You know, Islamic terrorists? Airplanes? National hysteria?

So in the “What the what” department, a few Imams and a gaggle of militant Muslims who dig this “free speech” thing in America have decided to petition a New York community board to build a $100 million mosque, Islamic community center and basketball court practically in ‘Ground Zero’, the site for the devastating attacks.

Yeah, I know. And even worse, it was approved with a vote of 29 to 1.

To kick this tirade off, props to whomever was the only person on that board with the temerity to say, “You know, this may not be such a good idea.” And the rest of those dolts who are either so blindsided with P.C. or wetting their britches to say what they should have, shame on you. Idiots.

“I couldn’t believe that this is really true,” wrote Sabatina James to The Christian Post in an e-mail. “Building the mosque where thousands of people died because of Islamic terror is just indecent.”

James, whose book My Fight for Faith and Freedom is a bestseller in Germany, is currently living under police protection in Germany because of death threats against her for converting to Christianity. She said her German friends were shocked when they heard that a mosque might be built near the site of the 9/11 terror attacks.

I mean, seriously. What is anyone thinking in the Big Apple… with a worm in it?

What do you think would happen if when Louis Farrakhan dies, Mosque Maryam (the warm, national confines of the Nation of Islam) goes belly up and is vacated. This is site is historic, but a few rabbis think that is some prime real estate would be a great location for a Jewish school and gets the party started with a sweet Bat Mitzvah.

You think the kerfuffle that would proceed would make headlines? Possibly a guest appearance on ‘Americas Most Wanted’? MEMO to New York City: Two words for ya’, “Never Forget.”

Yeah, apparently you did because that was a cutsy, marketing phrase your beloved city concocted to plaster on everyone’s bumper this side of the Mississippi. You know, kind of a tribute thing for all those natives that um, DIED in your friggin’ town.

I know 2001 seems like a land in far, far away but believe me, it’s still too soon for this. This is much more than a religious issue; it’s a national one.

Community Board 1 member Rob Townley who called the plan a “seed of peace.”

Yeah, that’s nice there Bobby. Only it’s not so much a seed as it is a wheelbarrow full of fertilizer, if you know what I’m saying. Although it’s tragically unfair for all Muslims in this country to be painted with the “that religion” brush, it’s the 800-pound gorilla in the room.

Cordoba House is not a tribute or a memorial. It’s a reminder of that gorilla flinging poo at the memories of the 2,700 people who were murdered on that fateful day.

If you want to honor those victims, build a park, do community service or help clean that mess. But do not build a house of worship toward your god where so many still need to feel a touch from theirs.

“Indecent?” That’s the understatement of the year. The only problem is that we can’t seem to find anyone in New York who is willing to overstate the obvious.

So, it’s been a few days since I last dawned a bottle of spray paint and got busy on the Wall. Let’s see God… how do I get my mojo back?

Sleezy televangelists? Nah, been there recently. Done that. What about a God Sighting of the Month? I did miss a month but still managed the bruised for our iniquities line. Anything new and desperate about Ed Young? Meh.

What could it be? Oh yeah… it’s been eons since we pointed our pentecostal finger at Louis Farrakhan.

And then, without further adieu, he’s back like that bad rash you get when your mama buys the generic detergent? The one that itches like sandpaper up and down the whole crack of your behind. No… just me?

Anywhoo, here he is bashing Whitey again and standing up for the president he believed was a one-trick pony… er, one-term guy. (Never mind that editorial there).

The 76-year-old leader said the “white right” was conspiring to make Obama a one-term president, and pointed to his stalled efforts to introduce health care legislation as proof. He said those opponents and lobbyists were trapping him into a future war with Iran that could lead to mass destruction.

See? That’s what I adore about narrow-minded folk. Whenever a man or woman fails to win an important debate, these dolts make it into an argument about race because that’s all they got to stand on. Farrakhan may as well call Obama a “house negro” and go about his way.

This is the leader of the free world, and you mean to tell me, he has to worry about the ubiquitous Whitey? Never mind the president’s political misgivings, the bad counsel and that fool he’s got running things as chief-of-staff. Oh no, it’s white folk that will be his demise.

Dressed in ornate creme robes, he addressed the president directly: “Your people are suffering. You can’t ease their plight, but you can use your bully pulpit. Speak for the poor. Speak for the weak… Put some money on back of us,” he said. “We can reform our people.”

If you mean the American people, then you would be right? MEMO to the Good Humor man wearing the Ice Cream suit: Unemployment, the economy, health care and overall despair even affects Whitey.

We are all in this together, but since you are so focused on sending us back to the bridge in Selma, Alabama, I suppose you will never get that through your heavily decorated fez, huh?

Moreover, the Farrakhan festivities at Saviour’s Day (A.K.A. W.D. Fard’s – founder of the NOI – birthday), lasted nearly four friggin’ hours. With that kind of leash, you knew some non-Kosher hambone would come thrashing out of his gullet, right?

Farrakhan said Obama’s current political difficulties began when he stood up to the Jewish lobby during an Oval Office meeting.”When they left the White House, his problems began,” Farrakhan said [in a recent Chicago Sun-Times article]. “The Zionists are in control of the Congress.

The Jews are coming. The Jews are coming. Dear Lawd Almighty, the Jews are coming. What a twit. Take it away Anti-Defamation League guy:

Anti-Defamation League Director Abraham Foxman responded: “Anybody who thought the old Farrakhan was gone: He never was. It’s the same Farrakhan: ugly and anti-Semitic. With age, he doesn’t get milder, he gets uglier.”

In other words, the more things change… the more they stay the same. Pity people can’t figure that aphorism out when it comes to this dude. His hatred has been the denigration of many a person – white, black, brown and all hues in-between. But as long as folk pay to hear this guy rant, rave and spew his vitriol for four hours, it will never stop.

Kinda like listening the extremists on either side of the aisle on Capitol Hill go at it. Ah, America. Ain’t it great? Same song, different verse. NEXT?!

I admire older people who refuse to quietly into that good night.

You know the type, those curmudgeons who refuse to allow those younger whippersnappers lap them in traffic, talk back to them in the mall and tell them anything about history. We could really learn something from them… that is, unless you are 76-year-old Louis Farrakhan, in which case, “Dude, say when. Please?”

Is this how it all started? With Agent Zero here?

Is this how it all started? With Agent Zero here?

Why? It seems he has chimed in with the CDC, the White House and every other federal organization that says, “Meh” to the H1N1 vaccine.

However, you can count on the Nation of Islam leader for a little bit more colorful commentary (no pun intended… well, maybe a little).

It was a warm day at the Holy Day of Atonement, which was also the 14th anniversary of the Million Man March. He figured it’s been a few years since he had that one zinger to keep him in headlines, so he unloaded a round of fresh ammo on this afternoon:

“The Earth can’t take 6.5 billion people. We just can’t feed that many. So what are you going to do? Kill as many as you can. We have to develop a science that kills them and makes it look as though they died from some disease,” Farrakhan said, adding that many wise people won’t take the vaccine.

Stay classy, Louie.

When my lil’ Wall Watchers got the piggy virus, I thought the same thing: “Man, this is uncool. The only way I can save my children from tyranny and oppression is to give them a vaccine that Whitey made to create genocide upon our young people.”

Thanks for the confirmation.

By the way, while you are condemning every medical worker in the country, Moses called and advised Ancient Egypt wants their Pharaoh back. Seriously, brother minister? Is the CDC really the “Caucasian Destroyer Coalition“?! Back to the story…

The black community has become toxic and must cleanse and restore peace from within,” Farrakhan said.

True, but how do you suggest they do it unless they heed the advice of radical xenophobes like you and Marcus Garvey and exile themselves to Africa?

I’m not sure you have seen the headlines, but life ain’t peachy in the motherland, brother. Intense famine. Extreme poverty. Sickness beyond measure. And that AIDS thingy just won’t slow down.

But, he’s on to something I guess because there’s not a lot of charity for swine flu in Zimbabwe.

If the black community must restore peace from within, then shouldn’t said black community rid themselves of those who do nothing but stir up pestilence and pain? You know, on the inside?

Just a thought… that I wish would catch on.

Abercromie & Kvetch

Abercromie & Kvetch

I’m not a big fashion buff. That’s not to say I can’t rock my “Metrosexual.” Child, please.

However, you know the stores with the blaring music that would an airplane engineer scream, “Would you turn that crap off?” Yeah, the same ones that smell like a house of ill repute walked through the place?

In other words, Abercrombie & Fitch. Yeah, it’s just that place. I loathe that store.

And now, apparently so will Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam thanks to this story in Yahoo! news.

Last week the EEOC filed suit against Abercrombie on behalf of Samantha Elauf, a 19-year-old community college student from Tulsa, Okla., who is Muslim. The suit alleges that Abercrombie “refused to hire Ms. Elauf because she wears a hijab, claiming that the wearing of the headgear was prohibited by its Look Policy,” or employee dress code.

The “look policy”. Nice. I hope they are looking when a throng of bow-tie brothers with attitude come banging on their door in the nearby mall because this is borderline comical.

According to Abercromie’s “Look Policy,” associates must wear clothing that is consistent with A&F brand or not wear the color black.

In other words, if you shop in the kids’ section, think underage booty calls are perfectly acceptable or attack your jeans with a rugged hacksaw, welcome to this place.

When contacted for a response, Abercrombie & Fitch issued the following statement: “We cannot comment on pending litigation. We have a strong equal-opportunity policy, and we accommodate religious beliefs and practices when possible. We are confident that the litigation of this matter will demonstrate that we have followed the law in every respect.”

I’m sure they did, but tell me dudes… like, how does a hijab mess with the righteous brand and sweet “look policy” anyway?

If the girl interviewed with a headscarf on, what in the world made you think she would go home, call her Imam and tell him, “My apologies, but this place rocks. So much for the covering. Peace.”

This is a company that sells not clothes and God-awful cologne, but sex. Plain and simple. And I suppose a religious head covering doesn’t really play with that pre-pubescent angst the store managers require.

Either way, this is more of “what goes around, comes around.” Welcome to the real world, Abercromie because Ms. Elauf will go “fitch” her winnings very soon. (Thanks, I’m here all week long).
