Fox Streaming Network Cancels Farrakhan Speech (update)

Fox network's "Fox Soul" will be streaming a live "Message of Hope" from Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan on Saturday, July 4.

Farrakhan is reportedly set to deliver a message from "God" during the event.

What are the details?

In a since-deleted tweet, Fox Soul wrote, "LIVE ON FOX SOUL: THE CRITERION THE HONORABLE MINISTER LOUIS FARRAKHAN will deliver his MESSAGE TO AMERICA on JULY 4th at 11 am ET/8 AM PT."

The Southern Poverty Law Center lists the Nation of Islam as a hate group and says that the group'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."

On its website, Fox Soul says it is "a new live and interactive streaming channel dedicated to the African American viewer."

"The programs aim to celebrate black culture and deal with real topics that impact the everyday lives of the black community through frank and insightful dialogue with local and national influencers," the website adds.

‘Fox Soul’ Cancels Louis Farrakhan July 4th Speech

In a statement Monday, Fox Soul announced that it would replace the Farrakhan program with an “inspirational” program focusing on “the greatest black leaders and thinkers about racial relations and civil rights in America.”

Former New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D), founder of Americans Against Antisemitism, congratulated Fox for its reversal, after he had urged the network to cancel the program:

 

The original Fox Soul announcement of the Farrakhan program linked to the Nation of Islam website, which features, among other things, antisemitic literature.
