Religion for Thugs & Mugs
The religion of “peace’ has attracted another celebrity musician. Snoop Dog now joins ranks withÂ Michael Jackson as honorary members of Islam.
Snoop Dogg joins Nation of Islam
Snoop Dogg has revealed he has joined the Nation of Islam after appearing at the religious group’s annual Saviours’ Day event in Chicago.
The rapper, who described himself as the “leader of the hip-hop community”, told followers he would share what he learned with other musicians.
He told reporters that he joined the group because he was “doing what’s right and representing what’s right”.
It preaches self-reliance for black people within an Islamic framework.
At Sunday’s event, the rapper sat on stage while Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan gave a speech.
I live how I’m supposed to live as far as doing what’s right and representing what’s right – that’s why I was here todayÂ
He said afterwards that listening to the speech from Mr Farrakhan was “about a mirror – it’s about looking at yourself”.
He added: “We’re doing a lot of wrongs among ourselves that need correcting.”
When asked if he had joined the movement he said: “I’m already in the Nation, that’s why I’m here.
“I’m an advocate for peace, I’ve been in the peace movement ever since I’ve been making music.
“My whole thing is not about really trying to push my thing on you.
“It’s just about the way I live, and I live how I’m supposed to live as far as doing what’s right and representing what’s right – that’s why I was here today.”
He would not say when he had joined the Nation of Islam.
Other rappers previously involved with the movement include NWA star-turned-actor Ice Cube.

Snoop Dogg Joins Farrakhan as Nation of Islam Member, Farrakhan/NOI Admit They “Laid Low” to Help Elect Obama
ByÂ Debbie Schlussel
Over a year ago, I told you aboutÂ Barack Hussein Obama’s Nation of Islam staffers and connectionsÂ in an exclusive story (which was laterÂ plagiarized in its entirety by WorldNutDaily thief Aaron Klein). Still, Obama claimed he disavowed Farrakhan and then, Farrakhan laid low. Well, it was all part of the plan, theNation of Islam loons now admit.
In a speech days after the election, Farrakhan acknowledged that he then purposely laid low, keeping his praise quiet, so as not to affect Obama’s chances at winning the presidency.It was a move many attending the weekend conference in Rosemont said they understood.
“Minister Farrakhan didn’t take offense,” said Audrey Muhammad, who edits “Virtue Today” magazine, geared at women in the movement. “We understand how politics work.”
Ishmael Muhammad, the movement’s national assisting minister, claimed Farrakhan’s words were twisted.
“He did not want to say anything the media could use to hurt his (Obama’s) chances to become the president,” Muhammad said. “They want to keep demonizing Farrakhan, despite the good he does.”
And they’ve added new members in the form of Snoop Dogg, criminal rapper T.I. (whose pre-federal prison “Farewell Tour” I told you about last week, and about whose Muslim status I correctly surmised), and ’80s one-hit wonder Doug E. Fresh. If you buy Snoop’s or T.I.’s products, you’re funding Nation of Islam anti-Semitism and hate. Snooop donated $1,000 to NOI at the annual Farrakhan NOI “Saviour’s Day” confab in Chicago.
He spoke for three hours in a rousing keynote address, often interrupted by standing ovations. Religious leaders, including the Rev. Michael Pfleger, as well as rappers Snoop Dogg and Doug E. Fresh also attended, sitting on the stage behind Farrakhan, nodding and clapping.
Rapper Snoop Dogg made an appearance Sunday at the Nation of Islam’s annual Saviours Day convention, praising Minister Louis Farrakhan and revealing that he is a member of the movement.Snoop, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, gave a $1,000 donation to the Nation and said he will always seek the minister out.
The rapper called himself the “leader of the hip-hop community” and said it was his first Saviours Day event. He told followers that he would share the information he gathered with other musicians.
“When you get a speech from Minister Farrakhan it’s about a mirror, it’s about looking at yourself,” the rapper later told The Associated Press. “It’s about seeing yourself and what you can do to better the situation … We’re doing a lot of wrongs among ourselves that need correcting.”
When asked by the AP if he planned to convert and become a member of the Chicago-based Nation of Islam, Snoop said he already is.
“I’m already in the Nation, that’s why I’m here,” he said. “I’m an advocate for peace. I’ve been in the peace movement ever since I’ve been making music. My whole thing is not about really trying to push my thing on you. It’s just about the way I live, and I live how I’m supposed to live as far as doing what’s right and representing what’s right. That’s why I was here today.”
The rapper did not elaborate on when he’d joined the Nation. Messages left for Nation of Islam officials were not immediately returned Sunday.
During the speech Sunday, Snoop sat on stage behind Farrakhan clapping and nodding.
So much for Farrakhan’s sole “redeeming” quality (which isn’t redeeming at all in the face of his blind hatred and Black supremacy), often cited to me by his Black supporters–about Black morality, conservatism, and values. Does “former” drug dealer and pimp Snoop Dogg elicit thoughts of morality and values to you?
Since he’s now allegedly a comic Muslim (which is how real Muslims see the Nation of Islam cartoon, which they only use for their common hatred of Jews and Christians), does this mean that Snoop will stop his “Gin and Juice” drinking?
Don’t count on it.
Funny, this doesn’t look Islamic to me (well, actually it does–Islamic hypocrisy, of which there is much) . . . [WARNING: suggestive and semi-nude Snoop Dogg video cover]
