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 Louis_FarrakhanClinton 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.”

      Oh? Are you asking if Obama is the Pied Piper of Hamlin: Whisking away a new gen of voters as he dances and plays a catchy tune on his flute called “Change”?


      But is Hillaria more frightening than Louis Farrakhan?


      John McCain may be old. But our flights to Cleveland and Denver (and beyond) will likely arrive without problems! VOTE FOR MCCAIN.

    2. SL-Gloria on February 25th, 2008 11:22 am

      This is great news. I wonder if Farrakhan is pro-Hillary and did this on purpose.

    3. Mike on February 25th, 2008 11:36 am

      I am a Republican but have felt that the Democrats would probably win the election this time and thought that it might not be too bad. BUT this is not what I had in mind!! It frightens me to think that with all the problems over the last several years that this is the best candidates they could come up with. It scares me to think what will happen if the Democrats get control of the House AND Senate. WHO do you think will make up all the important positions of decision and power. If you can be guilty by association then Obama is definitely guilty. The Republicans will do a major assassination on his character if he gets the nomination. I will be paying very close attention to who McCain picks as his running mate for Vice-President. Before all is said and done this person might end up as your president sooner rather than later.

      Obama is the anti-Christ!

    5. Rusty Bridges on February 25th, 2008 12:09 pm

      All flights in U.S. will be safer with Obama in office. There will be no need for terrorist attacks, the radical muslims will be in control of this country. The blind followers of this false messiah are not afraid of Farrakhan and his radical followers, they will welcome them. They are already blinded by this great speaker and his empty promises. They want “change” and they we will get it! AL-Qaeda predicted this as they did the attacks on the twin towers. They are following through on this promise as well.

      First order of business is his cabinet members will be men like Farrakhan. Next is gun control, and then Islam sensitivity training including the Koran teachings in our public schools.

      Yes there is a big change on the way! the sad part is all the people who are being fooled by this man.

    6. Terri on February 25th, 2008 12:47 pm

      Wow! this is not the first time that I heard him called the anti-Christ. This is some scary business. The Holy Bible says it’s coming. Nostradamus predicted it. I guess I’ll vote Republican. We have Satan and Cry-Baby Hillary, with ol Willy by her side! Not much choice is there?

    7. flippy on February 25th, 2008 1:43 pm

      Satan? The Anti-Christ?

      You seriously basing your vote on such notions?
      Please read up on Nostradamus before you factor anything related to him into any decision you make that is more important than what to have for breakfast…the guy got so very little right that that his “successes” are nothing but statistical noise.

      this scares the hell out of me!!

    11. Terri on February 25th, 2008 3:30 pm

      Way too many strikes against the man / Hill-Bill also.

    12. flippy on February 25th, 2008 4:02 pm

      Well, if you think that because “person A” views “Person B” as a mentor, and “Person B” is fond of “Person C” that therefore “Person A” is fond of “Person C”… but I don’t put too much stock in the “Transitive Property of Human Relations”.

      Lessee….How about this one:

      Rev. Kirbyjon Caldwell, senior pastor of Windsor Village United Methodist Church, said Saturday that he’s backing the Illinois senator because of Obama’s “character, confidence and courage.”

      So…who is this whackjob you may ask, why he is “An influential Houston minister who has long been a spiritual adviser to President George W. Bush”.

      So, by your “transative property”, Bush’s spiritual advisor endorses Obama, therefore Bush endorses Obama.

      Kinda sucks when it’s put that way, don’t it?

    13. on February 25th, 2008 4:15 pm

      Obama is scary. Hillary is scary. McAmnesty is scary. There are no good or even “acceptable” choices if you ask me. I’d even be scared of Huckabee. I’m a Christian but running on your religion isn’t a good sign. Huckabee’s tax plan is also very scary for anyone close to retirement.

      I can only hope that both parties conventions are thrown into total chaos – maybe we’ll get a “re-do” and actually have a candidate that we can stand.

      Any way it goes, everyone needs to vote on election day. You may have to skip the presidential election, but at least vote people in power who can keep the president in control.

    14. Miss-Understimated on February 25th, 2008 4:42 pm

      LF can be the kiss of death for Obama.

    15. bob on February 25th, 2008 7:46 pm

      Obama’s ‘church’ has already given an award to Farrakhan. Now the NOI leader endorses Obama. If Obama becomes Pres. and the Islamic suicide bombings begin in America, Obama may advocate that middle class Americans be prosecuted for ‘hate crimes’ for opposing the Islamic terror. All who speak out against Islam (ie Christians) will be silenced. Obama, as he sides with Allah over the God of the Bible, will cause a war in America between Christians and Moslems. Christians will be persecuted under Obama.

    16. Scared Monkeys on February 25th, 2008 9:02 pm

      So many people have blindly fell for the “marshmallow” message of Obama and this “cant we all just get along BS”.

      People better take a real good look at what they are voting for as the MSM refuses to vet this man.

      The truth is both Obama and Hillary are nightmares and dangerous for this country.

    17. Miss-Understimated on February 25th, 2008 9:05 pm

      Wow, what if a known racist endorsed, say John Mcain? What would be said then?

      Judge P said it all, we are a nation of sheep.

    18. Mike on February 25th, 2008 11:39 pm


      That has not happened yet and I do not think that it will. McCain has not had any association with racists. Obama’s father is in a Muslim church so I will assume that he was raised in the Muslim religion, I have not heard of many Muslim men allowing their wives to belong to another religion and to raise their children in another religion. I understand he is Presbyterian now. His former preacher is a man consumed with hate. I remember listening to Obama when he was elected and I said he had a chance to make a big difference for the black race in this country. I just feel that the party has rushed him to the forefront TOO quickly. I do not think he has garnered enough experience yet and I KNOW his wife is not ready for prime time. If she doesn’t shut up the republicans will not have to do anything to destroy Obama, she will do it for them. If he wins the nomination the Republicans will figurately crucify him.

    19. SUPER DAVE on February 26th, 2008 7:22 am

      so, what if john mccain is a racist too ? we could write in ronald mcdonald for president and be better off compared to the candidates we have now.

    20. flippy on February 26th, 2008 7:48 am

      Look, you don’t have to think the guy is presidenial material, Honestly it would hard to argue many many reasons why he is NOT READY for consideration. Such arguements would carry with them the possibility of actual conversation.

      Talk about the guys record and the fact that he doesn’t really have one. Talk about a lot of stuff, but arguements like “This guy is Satan” and “this guy will invite the terrorists into the country for tea” are just silly.

      Yes, he is not ready. Yes the Republicans will “crucify him”. But they will do so on the merits of his qualifications, not because he is a closet muslim fanatic who, from a very young age, decided to hide his fundamentalist beliefs by attending the chruch of the infidels becuase all along it was his plan to be the first black muslim President of the United States (and then destroy it).

      #18 -
      You can the bet the farm that this will happen. If the presidential race is between Obama and McCain, every single (non-black) racist leader in the country will be in McCains corner, and without a doubt some number greater than zero of them will publicly endorse him. He might not like it, he might not invite it, he might wish it didn’t happen, but it will.

      Of course, there are also plenty of black racists out there and you can also bet the farm that this group will be in Obama’s corner (even though he is not really “black enough” for them). And of this group some number greater than zero of them will endorse Obama.

      Race will be an issue in the general campaign far more than the primaries; and will get very very ugly (and I personally will be sad to see it).

    26. Michael Deqel on August 3rd, 2008 7:47 am

      Guilt by association is hardly democratic, and where is the association? That one person says another has qualities or endorses that other person says little about the other person. It only says something about the endorser.

      Use your brains, not your racist fears. Farrakhan has deplorable anti-semitic views, as Obama had made clear long before this endorsement (see Farrakhan’s 2007 Nightline interview, in the unedited transcript, not the foaming-at-the-mouth blogger form). What narrow-mindedness leads you to think that anything Farrakhan says matters?

      It appears everyone is scared, Or Frighten! these days. Reality check!….This government doesnt stand indefintely. No man made government stands indefinately. People are funny!. I see! people online calling themselves christians, But God & His son never established religion, Let alone a political organization called the christians. Look! silly people….Satan offered (christ) all the kingdom of this world if he would bow before him…Chirst answered satan…Thy shallnt tempt the lord thy God. The original word for government means Kingdom. Ask? yourself, How could satan offer what? he doesnt own…It is because he does own something. That something is called religion & Politics. Satan owns all world Kingdoms. Satan also made a declaration before he left the kingdom of God house. He said & I quote..” I WILL BE LIKE THE MOST HIGH, I WILL EXHALT MY KINGDOM ABOVE THE THRONE OF GOD”. God also gave a declaration of truth which i now quote..” I WILL BRING THEE TO ASHES UPON THE EARTH”. Think? about that…God knew where satan was going, Earth. He told him he would bring him to ashes upon the earth, Hence location known. Satan also stated his agenda…To be like the most high…To exhalt his government above the throne of false religions & Politics. Most people think? the world & Earth are the same thing, But they arent. The lord states…I own the earth & The fullness therof. Gods earth feed us all. Gods earth provides every essential need for us all. God earth is a reflection of his love & Generousity for all of mandkind. Now let examine satan world…World meaning system of thing..The matrix meaning sleep womb, Or False religous system organizations & Politics. Satan false systems are full of lies, & Filled with confusing distortions. Satan world is filled with murder. Satan world is filled with fear…ie hate. Satan world is and endless sea of terror reigning down upon humanity. It is satan who? inspired men to catalouge themselves into false racial groups. It is satan who? inspired men to called themselves black & White when there are no men that are black & White in truth. It is satan who? inspired men to speak! falsely promoting themselves as being from another race when all men come from one leneage and creed. I never knew one woman, Or Man that could prove they are the bio-logical sum remainder of alien parents…Not one. Look! in the book of mathew and See! what? (JESUS) Told the government of his day. Jesus said!…You now sit in the seat of (MOSES). Hypocrites he called them. Jesus said to the law keeper & Government of his day…You traverse land & Sea to make one a proselyte…Proselyte means…Convert to religion. Jesus then goes on to say….One you proselytizes them, You make them two fold twice the child of hell that you yourself are. Jesus was about his fathers business in this world. He never supported the religiousity of this world. Jesus said, I am the way…the truth & The light.It is the truth of God word that makes of free, Not politics & Religion. The blind leading the Blind. No wonder you are such! a fearful people because you didnt study to show! thyself approved before the lord. Make no graven images unto the lord, And Yet signs & Symbols everywhere. Who? seeks to change law & Time…One who? might have you bowing on bending knees on (sunday)…The day of verneration…ie..the day of the pegan heathens. Sunday for the sun-god…ie satan. People wake up! and stop! the foolishness. This world & The system of this world willnt stand indefinately. You can try! all that you can, But Gods word will prevail in the end. Christians, Muslims, Chatholics,buddism, All extention of the master liar satan. He knew silly men where tribal, Cultural, Un-enlightened…Keep up! the foolishness & Watch! your maker come as the theif & Robber at night. It is written…Let no man decieve you least you give up! your crown & Chance for eternal life. Gods word willnt go void, It was sent out unto the world & It will forfill its truth. Follow the truth which is God word & Leave & Forsake religion & Politics the devils false system in this world. Cosmo…Light & Love humanity.
