Jackson joins UFO Cult
- Michael Jackson joins UFO Cult
Michael Jackson is having problems at the moment from a Police investigation. According to the Daily Mail he has now embraced the Nation of Islam, a black militant group in hopes that they will solve his problems. The nation of Islam - is a UFO Cult, its founder claims UFO contact.
Getting to the interesting bit in the Daily Mail article:
The troubled singer met the Nation's leader, 70 year old Louis Farrakhan, in Las Vegas in November. Farrakhan reportedly 'talked to him like a father' and 'they prayed together'. There seems little doubt that the increasingly desperate and unhappy Jackson saw him as some kind of saviour.
It was shortly after that meeting that Benjamin Muhammad moved into the Neverland ranch and Nation staff started to provide the singer with security.
Their presence was evident during Jackson's Christmas party for his family and friends when he was not allowed to leave the house because of 'security concerns' and was kept there for two days after the event.
'It felt like Michael was a prisoner in his own home,' says one former associate.
So what exactly is the Nation of Islam? And is the singer aware of its sinister reputation?
Only two months ago, he gave a speech in which he called Jews 'the masters of Hollywood' responsible for 'feeding the minds of the American people and the people of the world filth and indecency'.
Has he heard that Farrakhan is rumoured to have been implicated in the murder of fellow black leader Malcolm X? Or that he delights in being called 'the black man's Hitler' and bases much of his teachings on a vision of being swept into a UFO that took him to a larger mothership?
Maybe all of this does not matter to Jackson. His new-found interest in the Nation has only one purpose - it allows him to align himself with its politically correct 'anti-racism' stance in a desperate attempt to win the support of black Americans and shift attention from the sex charges.
By doing so, he is following the example of O J Simpson and rap star Sean 'P Diddy' Combs, who turned to the Nation for support when they faced criminal charges and jeopardised their careers.
As one commentator put it: 'The Nation mobilises the broader community to protest their plight and, amid the noise, the gravity of the original charge - murder, manslaughter, paedophilia - gets lost.'
The group has an appetite for helping celebrated black Americans whose careers have been threatened with scandal. The man standing behind Jackson's lawyer at the present conference is a prime example.
Formerly Benjamin Chavis, he was fired as the head of America's oldest civil rights organisation, the National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People (NAACP), after he diverted £200,000 of the organisation's funds to settle a sexual harassment claim against him.
Shortly afterwards, he renamed himself Benjamin Muhammad - and is now with Jackson constantly as a full-time adviser.
Another regular at Nation meetings is former Washington DC mayor Marion Barry, whose career collapsed after he was filmed taking crack cocaine with a prostitute.
And what does the Nation get out of these high-profile supporters and converts? Well, exactly that: high-profile publicity, to help him spread their malign philosophy and win support.
It even attempted to extend its recruitment drive to Britain when several members - in their neat suits and distinctive bow-ties -- tried to hijack the Stephen Lawrence inquiry. The Nation's leader, Farrakhan, has been banned from entering this country since 2001 because of his inflammatory views.
Protesting his plight may be Jackson's aim, but he has chosen a profoundly dubious organisation to help him achieve it. Louis Farrakhan, a gifted musician and father of nine from the Bronx, New York, is not a Muslim. The Nation calls its followers Muslims, but its beliefs have nothing to do with Islam.
For while Islam believes in the transcendence of its God, Allah, the Nation teaches that black people are angelic Gods. Islam believes in universal brotherhood, regardless of race, while the Nation suggests Islam is for blacks only.
But the duplicity of the Nation extends far beyond its philosophy. The organisation was shaped during the Depression by con man and convicted drug dealer Wallace Dodd Ford.
After his release from California's notorious San Quentin prison in 1929, he moved to Detroit to 'start a new life'. The son of white and Maori parents, Ford claimed to come from Mecca, and used his skin colour and skill as a con man to pass himself off as a 'mystic' and 'prophet' from the Middle East.
Drawing on the work of two earlier black self-improvement movements in the US and adding a smattering of what he interpreted as Islam, Ford created what would become the Nation. Among his first disciples was the unemployed migrant worker from Georgia called Elijah Poole, whom Ford renamed Elijah Muhammad.
When Ford mysteriously disappeared in the Forties, Elijah assumed leadership, a post he held until his death in 1975.
Elijah elevated Ford to 'creator of the heavens and the earth' and developed the doctrine that Farrakhan - who was working as a calypso singer in Chicago when he met Elijah - maintains to this day.
In essence, this states that a race of black people, whom the Nation calls 'the original man', created white people in a genetic experiment 6,000 years ago.
Elijah claimed that the whites - whom he described as devils with white horns and tails - would rule the world for 6,000 years and then be destroyed by the blacks, who would establish a Paradise.
It was during his alleged UFO experience in the Eighties that Farrakhan claims to have met and spoken to Elijah again before being beamed back to earth.
Elijah apparently told him that blacks were 'moon people' and that the UFO 'mother wheel' was piloted by 13 youths who perpetually orbited the earth waiting to unleash total destruction on the 'white devils', while rescuing all blacks.
Far- fetched though this may sound, the Nation has recruited thousands of members, who finance the leaders' luxurious lifestyles.............
.......Clearly none of this matters to Jackson, who will do anything he can to get out of the tight spot he finds himself in - including playing the race card......

ME -- interestingly enough there is some circumstantial evidence that blacks were the original people and whites were a genetic experiment ---- based upon interpretations of the Bible and apocrypha --------- Nimrod was supposedly black, and the first great ruler (later called Osiris by Egyptians, who was originally represented as black) etc. Biblical interpretations mixed with UFOs is a fertile ground for creating new religions. Now MJ embraces it, to try to escape from his problems. The world is not only weird, but weirder than we can imagine.
