Farrakhan lifts phrase from 'Nazi playbook' in speech

The head of a messianic Jewish ministry says the latest anti-Semitic slur from Louis Farrakhan mirrors Adolph Hitler's own description of Jews.
"I'm not an anti-Semite. I'm anti-termite," the Nation of Islam leader told a cheering crowd of supporters this week in Detroit.
Using the term "termite" to describe Jews is right out of the Nazi playbook, since the Jews were described as parasites that were destroying Germany and deserved to be punished --- ostracized, then imprisoned, then killed --- for doing so.
Despite the obvious reference, Farrakhan bizarrely denied he was being hateful.
"I don't know nothing about hating somebody," he said, "because of their religious preference."
