Farrakhan lifts phrase from 'Nazi playbook' in speech

Louis Farrakhan (March 2015)The head of a messianic Jewish ministry says the latest anti-Semitic slur from Louis Farrakhan mirrors Adolph Hitler's own description of Jews.

"I'm not an anti-Semite. I'm anti-termite," the Nation of Islam leader told a cheering crowd of supporters this week in Detroit.

Using the term "termite" to describe Jews is right out of the Nazi playbook, since the Jews were described as parasites that were destroying Germany and deserved to be punished --- ostracized, then imprisoned, then killed --- for doing so.  

Despite the obvious reference, Farrakhan bizarrely denied he was being hateful.

"I don't know nothing about hating somebody," he said, "because of their religious preference."

Buchenwald (b&w photo)Jan Markell, founder and director of Olive Tree Ministries, tells OneNewsNow it is "absolutely true" that Farrakhan was echoing the chilling words of the Third Reich.

"This is the tone, the very wording, that Adolph Hitler used 80 years ago," she says.

Farrakhan posted the comment to his official Twitter account, and that action caused an uproar on the social media site when Twitter refused to punish him claiming it did not violate policy.

The Washington Examiner reports that Farrakhan was punished by Twitter earlier this summer after posting a sermon about the "Satanic Jew and the Synagogue of Satan."  

Facebook removed the clip from its Internet platform because it violates the "hate speech policy," a spokesman told The Daily Caller.
