Nonsense on Stilts

Reader comment on item: Rebuttal from The Moorish Science Temple of America-1928

Submitted by Larry S (United States), Feb 8, 2014 at 21:28

Aye-yi-yie- what a load of semi-literate bloviation this "Moorish Madhi" spews forth. How considerate of Dr. Pipes to merely note he faithfully reprinted the mahdi's comments, and to resist the temptation to mark his numerous grammatical errors with an a pointed sic. I take Shaykh Ra Saadi El's semi-coherent ramblings to be indicative of the (lack of) sophistication prevalent among his followers: the gentleman simply embarrasses himself when he opens his mouth. I suppose that kind of tomfoolery is what passes for erudition among to his faithful. How far black American leaders have fallen short of the legacy of W. E. DuBois!

I hope, should Mahdi Shaykh Ra Saadi El reply to Dr. Pipes' (rather convincing) refutation of his comments, that he (Pipes) will display this entertaining exchange here.
