Charges of racist and demonstrations by groups such as the anti-semitic Nation of Islam continue to harass local Marietta, Georgia bar owner Mike Norman over his Curious George Obama t-shirts.
Norman claims he's saying out loud what everyone else in town whispers while Rich Pellegrino, director of the Cobb-Cherokee Immigrant Alliance says it's "time to put an end to this". He says there's no place for these views, not in this day and age".
Just what would Pellegrino be putting an end too? Norman's right to Free Speech and to publicize his views? Would Pellegrino take the time to "put an end to" his demonstration cohorts, the Nation of Islam's Jew Hating statements?
We found the fact that the Nation of Islam, a group documented to be virulently anti-semitic was demonstrating over the Curious George T-Shirt. We decided to post quotes from of the head of the Nation of Islam, Louis Farrakhan. We wondered if Rich Pellegrino would find these to be "racist" and "offensive"?
These false Jews promote the filth of Hollywood that is seeding the American people and the people of the world and bringing you down in moral strength. It's the wicked Jews the false Jews that are promoting Lesbianism, homosexuality. It's wicked Jews, false Jews that make it a crime for you to preach the word of God, then they call you homophobic! Louis Farrakhan - Saviours Day, Chicago, Illinois, 2-26-06
See, you so called Jews. I'm not gonna give you the credit for being one of those that obey God. You portrayed us, you know what images do, that's why you jumped on Mel Gibson. But you painted us, big lips, red eyes, kinky hair, you put in the movies like that. You mocked our characteristics and made us to hate God's creation of us. You did that. Hollywood did that.You take our strongest, more courageous black minds, you think we don't see you? And you put us in Hollywood. You give us television shows, and then we gotta bug our eyes. Louis Farrakhan, Saviours Day Speech, Chicago, 2-29-04
According to the Atlanta Journal, Norman isn't backing down. He says people are "hunting for a reason to be mad" and refuses to rise to the "racist" tag assigned him by the likes of the Nation of Islam.
