Nation of Islam Leader Minister Louis Farrakhan Praises (Endorses) Barack Obama … Maybe time to Take a Closer Look at the Candidate
Here is one endorsement I am sure Barack Obama may be cringing at and especially with it’s timing. With praise and an endorsement like this … Its time to reevaluate.
With Barack Obama on a Democratic primary win streak over Hillary Clinton many have suggested that it would take a miracle to change the tide. The following endorsement without saying it was an endorsement, may just be that event that caused the change in momentum. It certainly needs to be looked at and pondered by the idealistic people who support Obama. On Sunday, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan endorsed and sang the praises of Obama comparing him to Nation of Islam’s religion founder, Fard Muhammad.
CHICAGO – In his first major public address since a cancer crisis, Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan said Sunday that presidential candidate Barack Obama is the “hope of the entire world” that the U.S. will change for the better.
Farrakhan compared Obama to the religion’s founder, Fard Muhammad, who also had a white mother and black father.
“A black man with a white mother became a savior to us,” he told the crowd of mostly followers. “A black man with a white mother could turn out to be one who can lift America from her fall.”
As the Astute Blogger commented, “If this doesn’t scare you, nothing will”. No kidding.
The Obama camp is already trying to do damage control over the Farrakhan endorsement. Maybe the media and naive “hope & change” voters may want to take a better look at the candidate and those who are supporting Barack Obama. First Michelle Obama’s comments about not being proud of America, then the a look into her thought process and her senior thesis and now a Nataion of Islam praise. Think Team Obama is not a little concerned?
Said Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton: “Sen. Obama has been clear in his objections to Minister Farrakhan’s past pronouncements and has not solicited the minister’s support.”
