Conyers Critical of Farrakhan for Anti-Semetic Remarks at Detroit Event


John Conyers apologized for Louis Farrakhan’s anti-Semitic comments during an event on May 17 at a Detroit church.

Conyers was in attendance at the event and issued the following statement:

“Farrakhan made unacceptable racist, anti-Semitic and homophobic statements, which I condemn in the strongest possible terms. It was my expectation that Minister Farrakhan’s speech would focus on the many challenges facing the city of Detroit. In previous days, he had discussed efforts to revitalize our city by purchasing property and investing in blighted neighborhoods. Regrettably, he used this opportunity to promote views that have no place in civilized discourse.”

From the “During his speech to the congregation at The Fellowship Chapel in Detroit, Minister Farrakhan spewed hateful antisemitic invective, referring to “Satanic Jews” and the “Synagogue of Satan” controlling major institutions. He expressed his love for President Barack Obama, but added that the president “surrounded himself with Satan…members of the Jewish community.”

From the FinalCall: “Over 3,000 heard the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan live May 17 at Fellowship Chapel in Detroit, Michigan. Among those in attendance was long-time Congressman John Conyers who said he enjoyed the Minister’s vision and motivational message to the community.”


  1. Conyers was clapping al through speech. Those Jews just showed who’s really the boss!!! Scared the death hankerchief head negroes is black people downfall…

  2. Farrakhan says people should live like “Christ” and call others genetically inferior?? Ha! He really believes himself to be black. Stringy-haired and light-skin and yet uber black. What a tard. He helped to kill Malcolm X and now he gives a damn about his progeny……… Farrahkhan is not black, but has made himself the leader of black people. African Americans are truly a stupid bunch. Where can I resign from this group?

    People tried to tell you not to include his racist butt in things dealing with our people, but I guess some are just dumb as rocks. Everywhere he goes he brings STRIFE. Farrakhan needs to go suck pig dingaling. He is the reason we will never rise as a group.

    I’m with EVERY body, not just African Americans. This dummy wants us to just be isolated. FUCK YOU, Farrakhan.

    • He is an opportunist. Our leadership is in the WH right now. This guy is mad because Obama dissed him. This is all a personal gripe, much like Corny West.

  3. Farrakhan is loved and respected as a man of character by people all over the world, but he is hated because he uncompromisingly speaks truth to power. He tells the truth and lets it hurt whom it may. He speaks against corruption, homosexual deviancy, robbery other people’s natural resources, and using nice-sounding operational pretexts to justify criminal foreign policies. Long live Farrakhan.

  4. Why didn’t you write about the fact that the Jews rejected Congressman Conyers’ apology then black listed all of the Black political leader who attended that meeting. None of them will be getting money in the future.
