(The Weekly Standard)   Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel welcomes racist, bigoted, anti-gay marriage advocate Louis Farrakhan to the city. Thank God he doesn't sell chicken sandwiches, or this could be a PR disaster   (weeklystandard.com) divider line 176

One guy is selling chicken. The other is trying to stop violence.
Lesser of two evils.

Emanuel and Farrakhan are a couple people on my list that I would applaud if bad things happened to them.

Second, Emanuel is welcoming Louis Farrakhan:

Ignoring Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan's history of anti-Semitic remarks, Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Wednesday welcomed the army of men dispatched to the streets by Farrakhan to stop the violence in Chicago neighborhoods.


Setting aside the absurdity of this, he's not welcoming Farrakhan.
 
2012-07-26 11:19:26 AM
So Rahm Emmanuel didn't want to experience the wrath of Farrakhan?

/best ILC skit ever
 
2012-07-26 11:19:30 AM
Louis Farrakhan is indeed a douche and a bigot for some reason people involved in religion get to be those things without repercussion.

Trying to stop black on black violence. Violence against Jews, still OK.

Right, he's just encouraging vigilantism.

He already lives in the city. This is not a new development. Weird headline.

I'm not going to buy his chicken either.

Or prevention. As I said, it's absurd no matter the justification.

Farrakhan don't need a welcome to Chicago, FAILmitter. He already lives here.

bim1154: Emanuel and Farrakhan are a couple people on my list that I would applaud if bad things happened to them.


I just want them to either stop or go away. The biggest annoyance I get is the "no true Scotsmen" fallacy in regards to his support. Apparently nobody anywhere of importance supports the NOI.
 
2012-07-26 11:24:32 AM
I didn't know Farrakhan needed a business license to come to Chicago. I learn so much on Fark every day.

Come on Subby...

it isn't racist unless you're white.
 
2012-07-26 11:25:13 AM
Maybe Emanuel will be okay with The General's Fried Chicken and will welcome The Man.

Right, but I'm sure the "army" will stand around and do nothing if something happens. Or maybe they'll just call the police? Not arguing, just saying it seems too sugar coated for what it really is.

Yeah, that's who a criminal with a gun is going to listen to, a crazed follower of a stupid racist in a bow tie.

Headso

Tell that to the Florida pastor who wanted to burn the koran.

vegasj: Come on Subby...

This. Everyone knows that the poorer someone is, the more likely they are to be racist. Since blacks are disproportionately lower income, it stands to reason that they are more likely to be racist.

It's generally a good rule of thumb that racist = poor. You see it all the time on Fark. Working class, non-college educated Farkers are usually racist. Lower-middle class isn't much better.

so you have a problem with people stepping up to stop crimes in progress? glad to know that if trouble reared its ugly head you would bravely reach for your cell phone...or is that too aggressive too?
 
2012-07-26 11:28:34 AM
The guy Louis lives here and other places. The Chick-a-fil guy could have opened up anywhere near or in Chicago except the Northside(Money side also boystown) so I don't think the Mayor wants to piss them off.

...Mayor Rahm Emanuel and a local alderman, who are determined to block Chick-fil-A from expanding in Chicago

Rahm Emanuel and the local alderman (and those who support them) have no respect for the constitution. That's not surprising.

Don't tell me that you understand, until you hear the man.

We've already established Farrakhan is not selling chicken.

Not selling chicken could cause violence in the community

Plus, I have it on good authority he is a cross dresser.

Other than the City of Dearborn telling him to STFU and GTFO, what repercussions did he face?

If only the mayor had an army of men he could dispatch to the streets to stop violence in Chicago neighborhoods.

This may be because I'm a racist Whitey McHonkie, but I tried watching some episodes not too long ago and the only skits that held up for me are the Jim Carrey ones. Actually, I thought most of the other material is painfully bad. The Men on Film segments come off as the gay equivalent of a Mantan Moreland minstrel show.
 
2012-07-26 11:40:28 AM
IMHO, the difference is that most interpretations of Islamic law indicate against homosexuality, and the direct command from Jesus to Christians is "Judge Not".

Farrakhan is following his religion, the executives of Chick-Fil-A are rejecting their religion's commands while trying to use it as an alibi.
 
2012-07-26 11:40:41 AM
When both Fark and Drudge Report are running the same headline across the top of the page, it really makes you wonder...
