Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan is ruffling feathers, saying the Second Amendment is “irrelevant.” Of course, the gun rights crowd are up in arms about this. The fact is the original intent on bearing arms is quite different today than it was back when it was drafted but why even bother explaining that to the right?

 In the third installment of his 52-week sermon series, Nation of Islam leader, Minister Louis Farrakhan, ridiculed the “volatile” American right to own weapons.

On Sunday, Farrakhan continued “The Time and What Must Be Done” sermon series by stating that Americans are increasingly angry at the government, and are simultaneously preparing themselves for war. Farrakhan went on to say that the Second Amendment has little relevance in modern society, stating that the constitutional right to bear arms is outdated.

“See, the right to bear arms was given at a time when there was no regulated militia to protect America,” he said. “But now you have police well-armed, you have state troopers well-armed, you have the National Guard and you have federal troops.”

Farrakhan served as the minister of major mosques in Boston and Harlem, and was appointed by the longtime Nation of Islam leader, Elijah Muhammad, before his death in 1975, as the National Representative of the Nation of Islam. Source

Quentin Tarantino to Krishnan Guru-Murthy: “I’m not Your Slave, You’re Not My Master”

While promoting his controversial Oscar-nominated antebellum flick “Django Unchained” in London, director Quentin Tarantino became unhinged when pressed by London’s Channel 4 Evening News host Krishnan Guru-Murthy about the link between movie violence and real violence. Tarantino told Guru-Murthy:

“Don’t ask me a question like that – I’m not biting.” When asked why, he says, “Because I refuse your question. I’m not your slave and you’re not my master. You can’t make me dance to your tune. I’m not a monkey.” Saying he was doing the interview as “a commercial for the movie,” Tarantino elaborates, “I don’t want to talk about the implications of violence… The reason I don’t want to talk about it: cause I’ve said everything I have to say about it. If anyone cares what I have to say about it, they can Google me and they can look for 20 years what I have to say.” Source:  Deadline Hollywood

Funny he should say “I’m not your slave and you’re not my master.” Isn’t that what “Django Unchained” is all about? One more thing, was Quentin Tarantino equating monkeys with slaves? If so, why hasn’t he been called out on that? I guess the whole slave experience makes a great movie theme, which translates into big bucks for him, doesn’t it?

Separately, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan claims the movie is preparation for the coming race war. Of course, Fox News Nation ran wild with this. Some of the comments are disgusting and just plain racist. Of course, The Drudge Report is also running with this. No surprise there.
