In an appearance on The Breakfast Club Show, comedian Corey Holcomb shared his thoughts on The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan being unjustly banned from social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram.
(via FinalCall.com) Facebook, the largest and most powerful conveyor of information in the world, recently ruled that “doctored” videos depicting false information can remain on their social media platform, but truthful information as depicted by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan will not be permitted and his voice would be subject to a lifetime ban from Facebook.
A company spokesperson stipulated May 22 that information posted on Facebook does not have to be true.
In other words, one can blatantly lie on Facebook and not have to be punished, but truth telling is not permitted.
Facebook’s double standards are astonishing. But what’s behind what I call the Facebook Farrakhan Ban? From at least 1984 and generally since the 1930s, certain Jewish groups have sought to silence the voice of the Nation of Islam.
No Black movement seeking freedom, justice and equality has had the impact of the NOI, and a concerted effort has been instituted to quell the voice and stymie the impact of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, Malcolm X, Muhammad Ali (see “Muhammad Ali’s Forgotten Legacy of Anti-Semitism”), and now Minister Farrakhan.
The voice of Minister Farrakhan is the most potent and iconic in America. He has a global following and his actions have stimulated massive changes in Black America. He has addressed over four million people in four massive marches in Washington, D.C.; not to mention speaking before 20 million live and 60 million on television in Iran. No other American can make that claim. He has been seen by multi-millions more on the Internet, on television and the radio, and in newsprint. His power and influence have had a global impact over the past 60 years. This kind of influence has disturbed some in the Jewish community, because unlike other “Black Leaders” they have not been able to silence his voice or negate his impact in the Black community, in the Islamic world, in Africa, or among progressive Whites. Notwithstanding the fact that the Zionists control the mass media, their efforts to minimize Minister Farrakhan’s influence have failed miserably.
The Facebook ban on Farrakhan is analogous to the infamous Cointelpro initiative of the federal government and the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith. This program was a co-initiative of the FBI and the ADL. Both groups spied on the NOI and jointly sought to identify a “Black Messiah” who would electrify and unify the Black masses. Martin Luther King never brought millions of Black people together the way Farrakhan has, Kwame Toure (Stokely Carmichael) was never able to accomplish what the Minister has, the Civil Rights Movement never produced the likes of Farrakhan, and the Black Christian leadership could not collectively stimulate the sleeping Black masses the way Minister Farrakhan has. Add to this scenario the fact that the Jewish community, through its representatives in the 12 major Jewish organizations, has sought to control the destiny of Black America for over 100 years.
For example: According to The Ugly Truth About the ADL by the Editors of the Executive Intelligence Review, B’nai B’rith was a major proponent of slavery in America. The authors conclude “B’nai B’rith has been from their inception, arms of the British secret intelligence agencies and secret societies that are sworn enemies of the United States. The B’nai B’rith and the ADL have used their nominal Jewishness to conceal their actual allegiance and agenda.” Moreover, the “early history of B’nai B’rith is part of one of the ugliest chapters in the British-led Confederate secessionist insurrection against the Union in the 19th century. The ADL is more closely aligned with the racist Ku Klux Klan than with Judaism, more closely aligned with the murderous Medellin Cocaine Cartel than with any civic group.” These quotes were written in 1993 and the authors have never been sued for libel.
As for slavery, in Charleston, S.C., for example, many members of B’nai B’rith became wealthy in the cotton and slave trade. In addition, the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad teaches us that, “The 1914 war, which involved all of the White race, crushed the power of Turkey in Europe and pushed that power back across the Bosporus (or pushed Islam out of Europe as nearly as possible).” The power behind the fall of the Ottoman Empire that broke the power of Islam were the crypto-Jews. Kemal Ataturk, the founder of the Republic of Turkey and its first president, is believed by some to be Jewish. So too was Ishmail Enver Pasha, the leader of the Young Turk Revolution, and the head of the Ottoman Empire in the Balkan Wars and in World War I. Little known is the fact that B’nai B’rith played a central role in the Russian Revolution that brought the Bolsheviks (communists) to power in 1917 (see Mark Weber, “The Jewish Role in the Bolshevik Revolution and Russia’s Early Soviet Regime.)”
Therefore, not only did the Jews bring down the Ottoman Empire and the Russian Empire through the use of agent provocateurs and subterfuge but they sought to do the same in the Nation of Islam. The subterfuge used to bring down the Ottoman Empire, Russia and others is now being applied domestically to compromise the NOI. In 1990 it was discovered that the ADL had paid agents, spies to infiltrate the NOI. Information obtained from these spy activities were sold to the apartheid Government of South Africa. These spy activities were conducted in major cities throughout the United States.
Therefore, there is no question that our Jewish detractors are hell bent in trying to do to the NOI what they have been successful in doing on an international basis, bring down the Government of the Nation of Islam. (See the video on Youtube, “The FBI Manufactured Plot to Kill Farrakhan and Split Black America”; also read the article “The FBI-Manufactured Plot to Kill Farrakhan” in The Final Call on March 4, 1997). Some have speculated that the FBI learned many of its dirty tricks from the ADL, and the ADL has been the hidden hand operating behind the scenes. (See Dope, Inc. and the research written by the Editors of the Executive Intelligence Review.) Also see “The Israel Security Forces Are Training American Cops Despite History of Rights Abuses” from The Intercept.
Hence, the tactic of using Facebook to ban Minister Farrakhan is only one step in their multitiered strategy to attempt to destroy the Nation. However, their tactics are back firing. In the “Supreme Wisdom” lessons given to all members of the Nation of Islam to study we learn that “Mr. Muhammad cracked one Atom into ten million parts.” Min. Farrakhan is like that atom that has been cracked by the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad. Now Min. Farrakhan is being cracked into 10 million parts, and his voice is having the impact of a nuclear bomb. Since the ban by Facebook his impact has grown exponentially. His supporters in the media, entertainment, the sports arena, and the religious community, and elsewhere, have joined forces to spread his message even to greater numbers of viewers.
Allah (God) says in the Holy Qur’an, “And (the Jews) planned and Allah (also) planned. And Allah is the best of planners.” (3:53)
Thank you Facebook for giving Allah (God) and His Messenger this opportunity to reach even greater multitudes who can benefit from the wisdom of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan.

Nation of Islam to respond to unjust lifetime Facebook ban of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan
CHICAGO—In response to public outrage over the unprecedented and unwarranted lifetime ban imposed on the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, National Representative of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, by the Facebook and Instagram social media platforms, a major rally will be held Thursday, May 9, at St. Sabina Catholic Church, at 7 p.m. CDT. He and Nation of Islam officials will respond to the assault on truth and free speech as the community comes out to show its support.
“Beyond insulting to Min. Farrakhan, a man with a lifetime of working for peace, spiritual values and social reform, this unjust sanction deprives the American public and others of the basic right to know. It is an abridgement of free speech in a country that presents itself as a democracy and does no public good,” said Ishmael Muhammad, a top aide to Min. Farrakhan and assistant minister at Mosque Maryam in Chicago.
Saint Sabina Church, pastored by Father Michael Pfleger, is located at 1210 W. 78th Place in Chicago. Doors will open for the tomorrow’s program at 6 p.m. CDT. Father Pfleger invited his longtime friend and brother in faith, Min. Farrakhan, and the Nation of Islam to come to his parish and respond to the Facebook outrage. Working media are invited to attend the Thursday evening event.
Working media should contact Richard B. Muhammad, 312 480 9775, or St. Sabina to register to attend the Thursday event. See the event live online at https://www.noi.org/wearefarrakhan/.
Hip-Hop artist Snoop Dogg didn’t waste any time airing his displeasure over Facebook, Inc. permanently banning The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan from Facebook and Instagram. Snoop dared them to ban him as well.
“If you’re down with it like I’m down with it, post your favorite Minister Farrakhan videos on your Instagram and Facebook page,” Snoop Dogg said in the Instagram video posted Thursday. “Show some love to a real brother. Post it right now. He got footage everywhere.”

If there’s something just as (if not more, we’ll explain why later) important as being present on social media, is being authentic on social media. Although it may sound redundant that being authentic on social media could be even more important than being on social media, it’s possible and it happens more often than you may think.
Being on social media doesn’t just mean opening accounts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Snapchat and whatever, you name it, it means also being active. If you have social media accounts and nothing new has been posted since Justin Bieber’s release of ‘Baby’, you might as well delete your social account right now.
Social media accounts require time to grow and business owners need to understand that they’re not just hit and run jobs. You create the account, fill it up with boring static information about your company and hope that customers will start queuing at the door. No, it doesn’t work like that. You need to be social! You need to be active, you need to be authentic. Here’s why this is so important.
Authenticity is the key to a solid business relationship with your clients
Whenever a company is not authentic on social media, people know it. Most people on social media are digital natives and they have been “socialmedeing” longer than you have been in charge of a business (most likely).
Being authentic is fundamental when approaching your clients and possible clients, because they can feel an immediate connection to a brand that actually listens to their needs and requirements.
People want to identify with the person they are engaging with and this is why your brand needs to have a voice. Social media users want to talk with a real person. They want to be assured that a real person is reading their comments and questions and takes the time to come up with a customized response, not just a random generated “reply” message.
While it takes longer to answer everybody with a unique message, tailored for their exact questions, being authentic pays off on the long run.
90% of Millennials crave authenticity
Millennials have slowly become the economic motor of today’s world. Of course, this differs from country to country to country, from economy to economy, but in just a decade, this statement will need no further explanations.
According to a study conducted by Social Media Today, 90% of millennials want authenticity from the brands they interact with on social media. Not only that, but this specific age group now commands $200 billion of the annual spending power, which means that brands better listen, and they better listen good to what they have to say.
Millennials can spot fakes a mile away when it comes to social media accounts. If a brand has bought its followers and subscribers, they can easily tell and step away from their pages. Brands with 10,000 fans on Facebook with only 10 likes per post are the easiest to spot and they are also the first to be outed by the community.
It’s better to have less fans, but a real following. Developing a community is more important than faking popularity, because not only will social media users call you out sooner, or later, but social networks also have algorithms that will ban or shadow ban your content (making it visible to fewer and fewer users). If your fan/reaction ratio is low, your content will stop appearing in people’s newsfeeds. Still not convinced that authenticity is crucial for your social media accounts?
Good content is great. Original content is even better!
A brand’s authenticity (or rather lack of) can be spotted in more ways than one. Sure, you can put effort into your communication and generate some good content for your company’s social media accounts, but then again, anyone with a small budget, time or skills can do that. So, what makes you stand out? What’s your X factor?
Well, the answer may be simpler than you think. Actually, it could be right in front of you. Still don’t get it yet? It’s you! People like original content. They want authentic content. Social media users are tired of seeing all those stock photos placed on articles “written by our Communication Director”, or some other exec in your company.
Your followers want to see something authentic. Something relatable. They want to see photos of you, your employees and your real offices, not those perfect stock photos that are the sheer definition of the word ‘generic’.
Make it a priority to be more authentic and the positive results will be short to follow. Authenticity is something your followers, clients and future clients will appreciate and expect from you, and you will start receiving the same treatment from them. If the feedback you receive is authentic, that means that you’ll have an easier time developing better products and services, tailored to your customers’ needs.
Be authentic and start collecting that valuable feedback! Build an honest brand and long lasting business relationships through social media.
All Praise is Due to Allah! WOW, my brother Eric Muhammad and the mighty students of his Islamic Sciences class at The Elevated Places TOTALLY surprised me today!! They invited me to the campus for a special book-signing for Volume 2 of “The Teachings 2.0: Twitter Sayings of The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan”.
But I had no idea they would have me to do an in-depth one-on-one interview with the multi-talented star Sister Ayah on a wonderful set they created with a live audience!! They showed out!
I thoroughly enjoyed the dialogue and the entire time signing books and taking photos. They truly set the tone as I prepare, by Allah’s Grace, to hit the road for #TheTeachingsTour to spread this blessed book on behalf of The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. THANK YOU FOR THE LOVE EP!!
(Source: BlackEnterprise.com) If you’re a black entrepreneur attempting to build a profitable business, attracting the attention of investors, journalists, and customers can be tough. Not only do you need to fight for attention in an already crowded marketplace, but you also have to fight against stereotypes and thinly-veiled racial bias at the same time. Some of the smartest moves black entrepreneurs can make is to follow, interact with, and tag your online posts with the right social media hashtags. If you’re a black entrepreneur hoping to grow your business venture, these are the best hashtags you should be using:
5 BEST HASHTAGS FOR BLACK ENTREPRENEURS
The #blackpreneur hashtag is crucial for black entrepreneurs wanting to attract online attention. This hashtag not only identifies you as an entrepreneur of color, but it also helps connect you with the rapidly-growing black entrepreneur community. Be sure to use this hashtag on multiple social networking platforms including Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook.
The #PitchBlack hashtag is another must-use tag for black entrepreneurs wanting to connect with movers-and-shakers within the black startup and investment sector. #PitchBlack refers to black entrepreneurs pitching their startup companies to angel investors and venture capitalists. Add this hashtag to your social media posts and you’ll be surprised at how quickly your entrepreneurial endeavors will be spotted by investors looking specifically for entrepreneurs of color.
The #SupportBlackBusiness hashtag helps introduce your black-owned business to potential customers and investors online. Whether you want to attract local customers in your own community or connect with angel investors wanting to support black and Latino entrepreneurs, using the #SupportBlackBusiness hashtag in your social media posts will help you connect with those interested in supporting your ventures.
If you sell products as a black entrepreneur, consider integrating the #ShopBlack hashtag into your social media strategy. Combined with the #BuyBlack hashtag, you’ll increase attention for your black-owned business while upping your social media marketing game at the same time.
For black entrepreneurs building technology companies, the #blacktech hashtag is essential. Add this hashtag to your posts on social networking sites and there’s a good chance you’ll attract investor attention from black-focused investors like @ArlanWasHere.
Being social media savvy is imperative for black owners wanting to increase their success rate. While connecting with black entrepreneur communities like reddit.com/r/Black_Entrepreneurs is essential, doubling-down on social media hashtags specific to the black business sector is a smart business move you’ll never regret.

The recent decision by Netflix to cancel a documentary about the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam isn’t really about the movie not being seen. It is about a relentless campaign to smear, isolate and destroy a man who has devoted his life to Black people and the cause of freedom, justice and equality.
Destroy? Isn’t that a rather strong word? Not really.
If you look at history you know that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had a domestic counterintelligence program. FBI director J. Edgar Hoover wrote in a 1967 directive, “The purpose of this new counterintelligence endeavor is to expose, disrupt, misdirect, discredit or otherwise neutralize the activities of black-nationalist, hate-type organizations and groupings, their leadership, spokesmen, membership and supporters.”
One of the meanings of neutralize is to “kill,” or “destroy.”
The FBI’s domestic war pitted Black groups across the political spectrum, from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and civil rights groups to the revolutionary Black Panther Party, against one another. FBI operatives also infiltrated these groups and pit members against one another. Then there were assassinations, like the 1969 killing of Black Panther leader Fred Hampton in Chicago. The FBI operation knew virtually no bounds and in its efforts to destroy the Nation of Islam and other groups.
So, if the government worked to destroy a movement yesterday and a man resurrected that movement today, is it possible that the man would be left alone? Emphatically not! When he brought back the Nation, beginning his work in the late 1970s, Min. Farrakhan was clearly a threat. His uncompromising voice and his independent support base only added to the desire to destroy him.
When he called nearly two million Black men to Washington, D.C. in 1995, despite ridicule and no help from major corporations, civil rights groups, unions, political organizations or sponsors, the Minister’s threat level rose even higher.
Despite a media disinformation campaign, including a widespread media white-out for some 15 years, Min. Farrakhan has kept working and challenging the evils of America. He has traveled abroad and made international connections while condemning the evil of the U.S. government, which Dr. King called the “greatest purveyor of violence in the world today.”
The Minister was sanctioned by the Senate in 1984, with no Blacks in the upper chamber of Congress, and a federal lawmaker from Indiana is seeking House sanction of a man who is not a government official and who has never even been arrested.
While the media assaults have been constant, an onslaught has come full force since February 2018. Alongside the “condemn Farrakhan” chorus of the enemy is the effort to punish, kowtow, bludgeon and smite anyone who comes near Min. Farrakhan. We saw that with the pitiful yelps of Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) declaring he wasn’t with Farrakhan and the pressure exerted on activist and Women’s March co-chair Tamika Mallory by those who hate a man Black America and others love.
Scripture shows us Pharaoh worried about the growth of the children of Israel and wisely tried to destroy them. Pharaoh feared the children of Israel would join onto an enemy and come against those who had oppressed them. Biblical rulers also sought to find and kill deliverers, just look at the stories of Moses and Jesus. Is this a prophecy that points to today or a work of fiction and relic from yesterday?
The divine word, if understood, shows us what is happening today using signs and symbols of yesterday.
Blacks in America fulfill the prophetic picture of the children of Israel and the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, patriarch of the Nation of Islam, is the modern Moses, and Min. Farrakhan is the modern Aaron. And, there has always been a fear that Blacks might join on to a foreign enemy or become a domestic threat inside the United States of America. That’s one of the reasons for the super-surveillance and over-policing of Black people and targeting of Black organizations.
Also pushing the federal government are the wicked members of the Jewish community, who have opposed every good deed and all of the good works of a good man.
According to the New York Times, Jewish groups pressured Netflix to drop the documentary.
“This film will not be released on Netflix. Due to an internal miscommunication, it appeared to be scheduled for release on Netflix, but it is not. We apologize for any confusion this has caused,” a Netflix spokesperson said Aug. 1.
But the Minister’s documentary was to appear on the global streaming platform with promos of the movie cited in overseas listings.
The Nation of Islam, in a statement, said: “The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan produced a documentary entitled, ‘My Life’s Journey Through Music’.
“As late as July 30, 2018, Netflix published that this documentary would be ‘Coming August 1’ on its media platform. On July 31, 2018, less than 24 hours before the airing of the documentary, the Nation of Islam became aware through news and online outlets that Netflix decided not to air it due to ‘internal miscommunication’.
“The Nation of Islam has not been informed of what was the alleged ‘internal miscommunication’. The timing of Netflix’s decision—at the 11th hour—to cancel the airing of the documentary affected millions of potential viewers and raises more questions than answers:
“In light of this untimely sequence of events, did Netflix bow to outside forces in canceling the airing of the documentary?
“Did media pressure contribute to this result?”
Consider that. Why this one man, why the unceasing opposition, why the rabid reactions?
Social media attacks on the truth and Nation of Islam Minister increase and raise questions about opposition to freedom of speech, free thought and Black self-determination.
Those who vehemently oppose the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan recognize the global impact he has and is having on the masses via an array of social media platforms and they won’t stop until his accounts are completely shut down.
“Zbigniew Brzezinski, who was a national security adviser, I think under Jimmy Carter, he said, ‘It’s easier to kill a million people than to control a million people.’ With the technology that’s now available: You and I are talking, and the words that we just spoke are on social media,” said Minister Farrakhan during a recent radio interview in St. Kitts.
“If it’s on Facebook, if it’s on Instagram, if it’s on Twitter, if it’s on any of the media outlets that this iPhone and smartphone, and the work of Steve Jobs and others have done, the whole world is at our fingertips in an instant. The control of the masses that has always been the purview of elites who control media and information that goes to the public—that’s over now!”
He continued, “So what you have in Black America, in the Caribbean, in the UK, in Africa, all over the world, is an instant communication that is causing the awakening of the masses. This is both good and bad. It’s good that we are awakening, which means we are demanding more, we are trying to correct the mistakes that we make, but we are also forcing government to do what government does not want to do for the masses of Black and Brown people.”
Evidently, the Satanic Jews and Synagogue of Satan hate the sight of his words, videos and images trending and spreading on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or YouTube and generating millions of views. They hate to see daily comments and testimonies from those who are instantly touched by him on every continent. So, it’s no surprise that specifically the past eight months the online campaign to ban Minister Farrakhan has intensified. However, they have been countered by online users inside and outside the Nation of Islam who support Minister Farrakhan and have appreciated his presence on social media the past seven years.
De-verification and Defending Farrakhan
On June 8, Twitter, Inc. de-verified Minister Farrakhan’s Twitter account (@LouisFarrakhan) by removing his blue verification badge. While the opposition celebrated the decision, supporters of Minister Farrakhan found it to be a frivolous attempt to derail his social media reach; boldly declaring that he is verified by God and verified in the hearts and minds of the people.
According to their website, “The blue verified badge on Twitter lets people know that an account of public interest is authentic” and “a verified badge does not imply an endorsement by Twitter.”
According to their Terms of Service, “Twitter reserves the right to remove verification at any time without notice. Reasons for removal may reflect behaviors on and off Twitter that include: Intentionally misleading people on Twitter by changing one’s display name or bio. Promoting hate and/or violence against, or directly attacking or threatening other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or disease. Supporting organizations or individuals that promote the above. Inciting or engaging in harassment of others. Violence and dangerous behavior. (Directly or indirectly threatening or encouraging any form of physical violence against an individual or any group of people, including threatening or promoting terrorism. Violent, gruesome, shocking, or disturbing imagery. Self-harm, suicide.)”
Why is Minister Farrakhan’s account de-verified then?
Many news outlets reported that Minister Farrakhan’s blue verification badge was ultimately removed due to a video posted to his account on June 6 with the caption, “Thoroughly and completely unmasking the Satanic Jew and the Synagogue of Satan.” The clip, only a minute and a half in length, is from the May 27 address he delivered at Mosque Maryam in Chicago.
“I wonder will you recognize Satan. I wonder will you see the Satanic Jew and the Synagogue of Satan which has many races in it because Satan has deceived the whole world,” said Minister Farrakhan in the posted video, which has over 800,000 views.
“Think about the message that I was blessed by God to give you today. Think about what they’re going to say when they have been so thoroughly and completely unmasked. Whenever you read that God has told the Jews to hear and obey and they say, ‘I hear and I disobey,’ that’s Satan openly disobeying God. He’s prepared to take the whole world down with him. Come out. Come out of her my people,” he continued.
The Anti-Defamation League and others, such as CNN’s Jake Tapper, started attacking the entire message and that video clip in particular as being “hateful” and “anti-semitic.” Twitter, Inc. then started receiving numerous reports from those who flagged the video in hopes it would be removed for so-called violations of Twitter’s policies.
However, the email account connected to Minister Farrakhan’s Twitter page received multiple notifications from Twitter, Inc. with the following confirmation: “We have received a complaint regarding your account, @LouisFarrakhan, for the following content. We have investigated the reported content and could not identify any violations of the Twitter Rules (https://support.twitter.com/articles/18311) or applicable law. Accordingly, we have not taken any action at this time. Sincerely, Twitter.”
Many such as former Daily Mail reporter Karen Yossman tweeted out that they reported the same video yet received the same response from Twitter. If Twitter and their executives found no violations of their policies or terms of services in that video, what’s the motive for de-verifying Minister Farrakhan? Who is behind this?
