The relationship between the Nation of Islam and scientology is becoming stranger and stranger.
Whether anyone likes it or not, scientology membership is disproportionately white. Massively so. And Louis Farrakhan is militantly anti-white.
So, what the hell are they doing in bed with one another?
Miscavige made a big show of announcing a Harlem “ideal org” more than 10 years ago that is yet to open. No big priority there — in that same time he has wrapped up and yanked the ribbon on “ideal orgs” in Cambridge, Ontario, Malmo Sweden and Basel Switzerland. So, clearly, the “reach” into African American society was just a PR show for the benefit of Isaac Hayes at the time. He did get the IAS to fund an ideal org in Inglewood in LA. That org I have commented upon quite regularly, as though it was supposed to be an outpost for the local community in South Central LA, it seems to be populated almost exclusively with imported white people from other orgs like Linda Lombardo.
Well, now they are apparently trying to attract some segment of the local population by having the West Coast leader of the Nation of Islam come and preach about his conviction that the religion of scientology is really the way to make it to heaven. I guess this is more likely to draw some bodies in the shop than an upper middle class white woman talking about the priced out of reach OT levels. But I wonder if anyone has explained to Tony Muhammad and the other NOI people who have become involved with scientology that this is NOT really the “modern science of mental health” but is in fact the most religious religion there is (read their court filings…) Does he understand that scientology believes they have the ONLY path, and that everyone else’s beliefs are rubbish (of course the PR statements are otherwise, but that is all they are — PR)?
I could not help but be struck by the news from the recent sermon delivered by the head of the NOI, Louis Farrakhan in Miami last week.
This is quoted from the Final Call, the official newspaper of the NOI, founded by Louis Farrakhan:
Later in his message, the Minister called for 10,000 fearless men willing to make the ultimate sacrifice rather than live under tyranny. There comes a time in the life of every people who yearn for freedom where death is sweeter than to continue life under oppression, he said. Blacks must protect their lives if the federal government refuses to intervene when Black lives are unjustly and the principle of a life of a life is laid out in scripture, the Minister explained. “Death is sweeter than to continue to live and bury our children while White folks give the killers hamburgers. Death is sweeter than watching us slaughter each other to the joy of a 400-year-old enemy. Death is sweeter. The Qur’an teaches persecution is worse than slaughter then it says, retaliation is prescribed in matters of the slain. Retaliation is a prescription from God to calm the breasts of those whose children have been slain. If the federal government will not intercede in our affairs, then we must rise up and kill those who kill us, stalk them and let them feel the pain of death that we are feeling,” said Min. Farrakhan. The crowd rose to its feet and gave another standing ovation.
Where is this marriage going to end?
This couple (scientology and NOI) are not being honest with one another. It would appear that each believes the other has something they can offer them. Yet it also appears each is telling the other what good intentions they have for their relationship while not disclosing the real truth.
This is like watching a serial wife abuser getting together with an avowed black widow gold digger. Everything is lovey dovey at the outset, but who knows which side is going to prevail in screwing over the other? The only thing that is a certainty is that it’s going to be a train wreck. They are heading in completely opposite directions — but head-on toward each other.
Some might say they gold-digger deserves the wife abuser and vice-versa. And it might make an entertaining movie. The problem here is that people are going to suffer in real life.
PS: After I had written this, someone sent me this new promotional piece for Inglewood Org. Couldn’t have come at a more appropriate moment.
