Notorious hatemonger Louis Farrakhan continued his string of absurd and inflammatory pronouncements in public comments this week that display complete and utter disdain for Jews and Christians alike.

Speaking at an annual gathering of his followers called “Saviours’ Day,” world-famous anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan declared, “God never sent Jesus to die for this world. Jesus died because he was 2,000 years too soon to bring about the end of the civilization of the Jews. He never was on a cross, there was no Calvary for that Jesus.”

According to Farrakhan, “The real story is . . . [i]t didn’t happen back there. It’s happening right while you’re alive looking at it. I represent the Messiah. I represent the Jesus and I am that Jesus. If I am not, take my life.”

While Farrakhan has faced criticism for decades for his unabashed anti-Semitism, the aging preacher consistently finds new ways to express the world’s oldest hatred.
