Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz has called for an end to federal funding for radio until an affiliate of National Public Radio (NPR) stops playing Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan’s speeches during a broadcast. weekly.

Final Call Radio, which airs every Sunday night on NPR affiliate WEAA 88.9, labels itself as “The Official Voice of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan” and reproduces his speeches where he makes anti-Semitic comments. WEAA received over $250,000 in funding in 2021, which is the last year they went up, from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CBP), which is entirely funded by Congress.

The radio station broadcasts in the Washington DC-Baltimore area.

Farrakhan has a history of “criticizing Jews, whites, and the LGBT community.” according the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). (RELATED: Booker Doesn’t Rule Out Meeting With Black Nationalist Hate Group Leader Louis Farrakhan)

“Farrakhan has embarked on a far-reaching campaign specifically targeting the Jewish community, a campaign that has featured some of the most hateful speech of his tenure as head of the NOI,” the ADL website reads. “Farrakhan has alleged that the Jewish people were responsible for the slave trade and that they conspire to control the government, the media and Hollywood, as well as various black individuals and organizations. He frequently denies the legitimacy of Judaism, or the Jewish claim to the land of Israel, arguing that Judaism is nothing more than a “misleading lie” and “theological error” promoted by the Jews to promote their “control” over the government. and the US economy. ”

“How did the Jewish people own most of the basketball players? Have you ever considered how they got so rich, so powerful, so influential? The Synagogue of Satan calls me an enemy, an anti-Semite, a homophobic, an anti-white, an anti-American. They take you away from a man who has the truth in his mouth that will set you free,” Farrakhan said in a speech that aired on the NPR affiliate.

“Joe Biden says white supremacy is the nation’s biggest threat, but his administration is busy subsidizing the broadcast of Nation of Islam propaganda. Taxpayers should not support Louis Farrakhan’s hateful rhetoric. I call for a halt to any and all taxpayer funding to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting until WEAA stops broadcasting Final Call Radio,” Gaetz told The Caller.

The radio station is owned by Morgan State University, a public university that received $46 million in federal grants and contracts in 2022. (RELATED: Hakeem Jeffries defended uncle’s anti-Semitic tirade in university press)
