Thursday, March 02, 2006Jewish-Black Conflict in Illinois Government
Trouble in Paradise
The Governor of Illinois appointment an African American, Claudette Marie Johnson, to the Governor's Commission on Discrimination and Hate Crimes. Claudette is also known as Sister Claudette Marie Muhammad, a minister of protocol for the Nation of Islam. Can you believe several Jewish lawmakers are trying to force her to repudiate statements made by Minister Farrakhan over the weekend that were critical of Jews, gays and lesbians?
Fortunately, the lawmaker’s push drew an angry reaction from members of the Illinois Legislative Black Caucus (LBC), who came to her defense. Senator Donne Trotter (D-Chicago) had this to say: the demands from the Jewish and gay lawyers were hypocritical. "I'm certain there are Catholics on that commission and no one has asked Catholics to repudiate the pope or the cardinal for them closing their eyes to the pedophiles that have been shifted around this country."
The Jews have a lot of nerves. Do they think they own us? They should be ashamed of themselves, but I know they feel too self-important for shame.
I just heard two Jewish lawyers resigned from the Governor's Commission on Discrimination and Hate Crimes. Is this silly are what? Good riddance. If this is the type of judgment these men display, we don't need them on this commission anyway. Talking about being unreasonable. How is this woman responsible for Farrakhan's statements?
