NOI's prison work benefiting from taxpayers' monies

Louis Farrakhan (March 2015)Many inmates who have been getting religious training at taxpayer expense will be eligible for early release under the newly signed prison reform law. But one of those groups working with inmates is rife with anti-Semitism.

The criminal justice overhaul bill has been hailed as one of the most amazing feats of bipartisanship in a generation, with pundits and politicians from all shades of red and blue – even those on the far left – congratulating President Donald Trump for its passage. When it was first introduced, the president had this to say:

Trump: "These incentives will encourage them to participate in vocational training, educational coursework, and faith-based programs that reduce their chances of recidivism."

However, one of the groups that's been getting hundreds of thousands of dollars for its faith-based program – since the days of the Obama administration – is Louis Farrakhan's Nation of Islam (NOI). The prison reform bill allows for early release for many of the inmates who complete the faith-based programs, including Farrakhan's.

Colorado-based political commentator Richard Randall finds that practically criminal. "This leftover program from that president and from that administration and from that era is an embarrassment," he exclaims. "It's an affront to society.

"Of all of the things that you would be eligible for early parole it's going to be to indoctrinate them with anti-Semitism, with a racial hatred, the kind of thing that Louis Farrakhan is noted for," he laments.

And worse than the racism, Randall points out, most homegrown terrorists have been radicalized into jihadist Islam while in prison.

"My taxpayer money goes for this! To this point, we can't find taxpayer money for a wall to protect this country – but we can find money for a program like this," says the radio show host. "And we know that radicalization has been a problem both in Europe and now in the United States of America."
