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.

  1. I’m glad they cancelled Farrakhan, but I was hoping they had cancelled Juan Williams and the other token liberals appearing on Fox!

  2. I too have ben a solid fan of FOX for years. However, of late have changed to other news stations to avoid the likes of Juan Williams , Wallace and other new hires of FOX. If I wanted to listen to the views of Williams, I would simply tune to CNN, MSNBC and others.This AZZ HOLE needs to be retired from fox. When he comes on to ANY FOX broadcast. I simply switch to another station. Am sure MANY others feel the same as I do.

  3. Hodge Cavuto seems to be turned full right Williams is a troll only and Jessie and the rest need him to be a punching dummy to relieve tension Fox still has the best commentators anywhere and honest at that Hannity
    Carlson Ingram Judge Jeannine Jessie Waters and more intelligent guests than any other political talk show or news media anywhere

  4. Thank God they came to their senses. I’ve been upset with Fox News for some of the Liberals they have on, recently a lot more than ever, because of the outright lies they are repeating from the left-wingnuts. To allow such narratives to be heard on the one and only
    Conservative station existing is quite disheartening. I hate it. I yell at the TV. It’s making me crazy. I’m so tired of the whole political scene. These people are very screwed up.

    1. Thats for sure, all they do is holler and scream. I’m acually getting sick of it. Last night I did cry for the family that lost their son at 19. I felt so bad, he couldn’t even see his son for almost 2 weeks. What a shame……..

    2. I would of been pissed off, Where are they headed? I hope not the way all the others are. Where do they come up with all this stupid stuff and they don’t have any better news then him. He doesn’t derserve to express his lies and everything that goes along with him.

  5. What a data of un-ambiguity and preserveness of valuable
    familiarity concerning unexpected feelings.

  6. How about leaving the BLM out of this spotlight? Please put in something that celebrates our great country! BLM had nothing to do with OUR independence day! They only want to keep the hate going and we don’t need any more of this crap!
