Barack Obama denounced Farrakhan's anti-semitism during a debate with Hillary Clinton on MSNBC, but why didn't he denounce him before, during or after the Million Man March?

Why would he march with Farrakahn in the Million Man March the first place?

Wasn't Farrakhan a racist, anti-semite then, too?

Also, why didn't Obama leave his church after it gave a lifetime achievement award to Louis Farrakhan?

I mean, hasn't Obama said that had he known Rev. Wright's views he would have left TUCC?

Yeah, I heard that the numbers were exaggerated by the MSM... just a bit, though.

Doesn't surprise me. He has had a relationship and admiration of Farrakhan, whether he denies it or not. Photobucket

But should he have marched with Farrakhan?

Why would he want to march with Farrakhan?

Was that a good thing?

A radio guy was fired for saying “Yesterday, 400,000 men marched on Washington and 14 of ‘em missed work.”

Yeah it was a good thing for Obama. Any good antisemite should have march with Farrakhan.

Info is just coming out all over the place about exactly what kind of “black” man Obama is. He associates with all these radicals because he aspires to be like them. He’s a smart man (so they say) therefore there is no way that he doesen’t know the views of the company he chooses to keep. Anyone that supports him supports his views. He would fill his cabinet and the supreme court with radicals that think like him. What a nightmare he is.

“What say you?”

Why would anyone think Obama is any different from any other Muslim? When will everyone understand?

1. It is a moral virtue for a muslim to lie to a non-muslim if it will advance the world-domination of Islam.

2. If a muslim’s lips are moving, he’s lying to you!

Barack Obama:

But it’s always easier to organize around intolerance, narrow-mindedness, and false nostalgia. And they also have hijacked the higher moral ground with this language of family values and moral responsibility.

Come on, Obama never knew what his pastor was saying and he never knew what Farrakhan was doing. He was completely innocent. Anyone who disagrees is a racist!

It’s interesting that this stuff just keeps coming out while there is a growing chorus for She Who Must Not Be Named to quit the race. Maybe they are desperate for her to quit before the MSM can be completely in the BHO tank to save him from his past. If not, then either candidate will get pasted come November.

I think it was reported that Hussein was responsible for keeping track of attendance. He was the counter.
