Farrakhan and Twitter

Louis Farrakhan addressing followers.

Twitter withdrew Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan’s verified status after he tweeted last week about the “Satanic Jew and the Synagogue of Satan.”

The little blue check-mark badge, which highlights noteworthy, popular accounts, was removed over the weekend after a video from Farrakhan’s three-hour May 27 sermon blamed Jews for advocating “Satanic” same-sex marriage, imposing undue influence on former U.S. President Barack Obama and using sex to get parts in Hollywood movies.

“Whenever you read that God has told the Jews to hear and obey, and they say, ‘I hear and I disobey,’ that’s Satan. … [The Jews] are openly disobeying God,” railed Farrakhan. “He [a Jew] will take down the whole world with him.”

“Do you know that many of us who go to Hollywood seeking a chance have to submit to anal sex and all kinds of debauchery, and they give you a little part? It’s called the casting couch,” added Farrakhan. “See, that’s Jewish power.”
