Interesting that Irv Kupcinet was present. I never understood at the time what made a gossip columnist like him (that was his metier, not journalism, he just reported on the social events of the "beautiful people" in Chicago) such a personality in the life of the city.Now I do. He was moving in the circles of real power.The meeting of Farkhan with the rabbis included Kupcinet to signal that they could destroy him in the media. Indeed they did their best, as I recall.A
"...but if being your friend means I have to deny the truth, then yours is a friendship I don't need, and yours is a friendship I don't want."Truly, a man speaking truth to (Jewish) power.
Fantastic!!!Martin K -
Mr. Farrakhan one of countless whom are so marginalised,discredited,and essentially ignored in media,newspapers,etc. that this is the first time I,ve heard more than a mere blurb. Like really most people I'd been convinced that he had nothing to say worth hearing. Perhaps he does. Oh,but doesn't he say some far out stuff about his visiting the "Mother Ship"?
Yes, peple like Farrakhan often have unworthy sides to them and often have some seemingly weird ideas - but surely that doesn't mean we have to reject them completely.Is this not one of the main problems with the current discourse - the constant need to categorise people as being either one thing or the other?
