Nobody on Earth does the verbal version of swatting at imaginary flies like Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
Farrakhan said a few days ago that the levees in New Orleans were blown up on purpose in order to flood the black areas of New Orleans, and not touch the white areas. Louis now has some defenders.
One of them is Air America host Chuck D., who told MSNBC’s Tucker Carlson, “You can’t blame people for coming up with conspiracy theories.”
Elsewhere in Wingnut-land, here’s what Farrakhan said:
“I heard from a very reliable source who saw a 25 foot deep crater under the levee breach. It may have been blown up to destroy the black part of town and keep the white part dry.”
Surprisingly, Farrakhan didn’t see that whitey had hauled in several semi-truckloads of Bounty paper towels, the quicker picker upper, just in case some of the wetness accidentally ended up in the caucasian neighborhoods.
Ever wonder what a guy like Farrakhan would consider a “reliable source”? Bigfoot? The director who “filmed” the first fake moon landing at a soundstage in Arizona in 1969? The New York Times?
Okay, I admit it, I’m a white guy. Having no credibility to speak on this issue, I can only say this: Let’s say a racist did hate black people and blew up the levees. All he did was to send them running into his neighborhood.
If this was a plot by racist whitey, it certainly backfired, didn’t it Louis?
