Fox Soul cancels planned Independence Day address from Louis Farrakhan

Fox News fans were shocked when it was announced that the network’s recently launched streaming platform, “Fox Soul,” was planning to broadcast an address from Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, a notorious religious extremist — on July 4th of all days.

After controversy exploded over the matter, Fox rapidly reversed the decision on Monday, announcing that Farrakhan’s address had been canceled and replaced with an “inspirational” program led by prominent Black leaders. 

Farrakhan had previously tweeted that he was looking forward to the now-canceled address, writing “I am ready to deliver the message that God has formed in me. It is for every inhabitant of this planet. If it is the Will of God, I will deliver it to the world on July 4th.”

However, Fox Soul will now feature a program that showcases “a compilation of the most powerful speeches from the greatest black leaders and thinkers about racial relations and civil rights in America.”

Farrakhan is well-known as an outspoken “minister” along the lines of the Reverend Al Sharpton. Both use their platform as religious leaders to agitate against American ideals — though Farrakhan’s rhetoric is far more shocking than Sharpton’s.

Breitbart reported:

Farrakhan’s history of hateful rhetoric is well-documented. In 2018, he compared Jews to termites. That same year, he drew criticism for defending the use of the phrase “death to America” during a conversation with students in Iran.

Farrakhan’s rhetoric is so blatantly racist and inflammatory that even the Southern Poverty Law Center — an organization that always strives to be as far left on the spectrum as possible — lists the Nation of Islam as a hate group.

The SPLC wrote that the NOI’s “theology of innate black superiority over whites and the deeply racist, antisemitic and anti-LGBT rhetoric of its leaders have earned the NOI a prominent position in the ranks of organized hate.”

CNN’s Jake Tapper called out Fox’s bewildering decision to feature Farrakhan on Monday, tweeting “Farrakhan is a vile anti-LGBTQ anti-Semitic misogynist. Why is a Fox channel airing his propaganda?” only hours before Fox axed the speech.
