Some folks will say it doesn’t mean anything. But it does. It’s all part of the bits and pieces that comprise the Obama mosaic.
Louis Farrakhan, the head of the Nation of Islam since 1977, is among the most despicable people in the United States. (my humble opinion) A racist, a Jew-basher, a hater of America, this man has been unapologetic in spewing hatred among his followers and friends for 35 years, from which a large and significant cadre of like-minded haters have been spawned.
Farrakhan was honored in Libya by racist, Jew-hating, America-hating Moammar Ghadaffi in 1996 by receiving his International Prize for Human Rights award, worth $250,000. That put him in such noble company as Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez. The year before, Ghadaffi awarded Farrakhan a $5 million interest-free loan.
Here are a sampling of quotes by Farrakhan:
* “The Jews don’t like Farrakhan, so they call me Hitler. Well, that’s a good name. Hitler was a very great man.”
* “They call them terrorists, I call them freedom fighters.”
* “Many of the Jews who owned the homes, the apartments in the black community, we considered them bloodsuckers because they took from our community and built their community but didn’t offer anything back to our community.”
Louis Farrakhan was openly embraced, supported and befriended over a twenty-year period by none other than, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, minister for the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago Illinois and close pal of the future president. We all remember him, the “God-Damn America” minister who Barack Obama called his spiritual mentor for twenty-years.
It’s amazing that people still exist in America who will close their eyes to the obvious. This validates the old “Love is blind” cliche. Lesson: Don’t ever try to tell someone in love that they made a mistake, no matter how horrible the other person may be.
Barack Obama was one of Farrakhan’s organizers in assembling the “Million-Man March” on Washington in 1995. This is when Obama and Wright were close allies in their hate-spewing church and Farrakhan one of their closest associates, praised by Wright and honored in their monthly newsletters for all congregants to read.
During the campaign, Obama acted surprised by Wright’s outrageous rantings caught on camera in 2008, so what was he to do? It was an election year. He had to act the role of indignance and disassociate himself from Wright, something he could have done any time during the twenty years he shared the same anti-American ideologies. Yes, he “acted” surprised because that’s exactly was it was, an act.
For twenty years, Barack Obama not only sat in the pews listening to this hate garbage, he was a part of the fabric of that church, an activist, a financial supporter, a leader and close associate. One can only imagine the rhetoric that was exchanged behind closed doors, when the cameras were not rolling.
Wright, Farrakhan, Obama. Connect the dots. That’s what police professionals do when they dig into organized crime figures, gleaning information based on associates of known criminals. People who hung around Meyer Lansky, Bugsy Siegal and Lucky Luciano were seen as like-minded associates, even if they had not been arrested. They were considered equally as corrupt and untrusted.
America was so enamored with race and charisma in 2008, that we elected an associate of anti-Americans as our president while turning a blind eye to the obvious. Let’s pray we don’t make that same mistake again.
I haven’t even mentioned Bill Ayres, Bernadine Dorn, Frank Marshall Davis, Rashid Khalili, and other despicable characters befriended in the past by this president.
It’s all about trust.
But who cares, he talks so good.
