Farrakhan: President Obama under heavy attack (Barf alert)

Farrakhan: President Obama under heavy attack

BY SOPHIA TAREEN Feb 27, 2012

Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan said Sunday that President Barack Obama has suffered more criticism than any other president because of his race, and it has created a negative climate that could lead to assassination attempts on the first black president.

The leader of the Chicago-based movement addressed thousands at the group’s annual convention in a wide-ranging speech that touched on presidential politics, the national debt, international policy, food, Israel and claims about the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, among other topics during the hourslong speech.

Using slides and photographs before the crowd at the United Center, Farrakhan spent nearly an hour illustrating disparaging comments about Obama and first lady Michelle Obama made by current GOP presidential contenders, city leaders nationwide, along with caricatures drawn in other countries depicting Obama as Hitler.

Farrakhan, 78, said that there are people who do not like having a black man in the White House and particularly blamed Republicans, criticizing nearly the entire field of Republican candidates seeking the presidential nomination.

“They have called President Barack Obama a racist, an anti-Semite, a socialist, a communist, a foreigner, an alien and some have even called him a terrorist,” Farrakhan said. “Obama has really got them upset. Republicans are looking for some white person. Anybody. Anybody.”

Farrakhan said the comments, along with those around Obama who he said are manipulating him, are creating a negative atmosphere that could make him a one-term president. It’s a claim that Farrakhan has touched on in years past, but he discussed it more explicitly Sunday.

“They’ve said over and over that he is Muslim when he’s Christian. Well, president, you might as well come and join us. Then we’ll get something done,” Farrakhan joked.

"In one of the most astonishing gaffes in American political history, in a national televised interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulus, Democratic presidential candidate Barack Hussein Obama referred to "my muslim faith," confirming what researchers and political opponents have been claiming."

IF Obama is under attack, it is from the weight of his own sins.

I thought Farrakhan hated Obama because he killed his Libyan buddy Khadafi...

If they showed the stuff that was said about W the presentation would take about 20 years.

Race paranoia such as that exhibited by Farrakhan really should be a diagnosable disease by the American Psychological Association like schizophrenia or something.

I must have missed the noise about the movie made based on a scenario of “what if The Won was assassinated”.

In an election year he will rally to the “brotha”, plus there’s no telling what he gained in bribery.

“Farrakhan spent much of his oration decrying what he cast as Satan’s influence over racist forces in politics and society before asking a pointed rhetorical question: “Do you think they’re wicked enough to be plotting our brother’s assassination as we speak?”

I wouldn’t worry. He’s very well protected. It’s not like I’m even allowed to have a battery of SAMs mounted on the roof of my house, even if I could afford them.

Yo race pig, Farrakan:

The race double standard Hall Pass has expired for destructive and divisive, no talent sh!t-disturbers like yourself and the Kenyan in Chief.

The era of HUGELY misplaced White Guilt at LONG last, is finally winding down.

For all you Farrakhan cultists out there reading comments on various conservative websites, looking for reasons to hate the white man, the Jew, and the Jeremy Lin’s of this world... consider for a moment the hatred that you have for all of us... now ask yourself, “why do I hate all these people”? Well, why do you? Does your hatred animate you to “Good Works” as described in the Bible? Or does it lead you to thoughts of dominating all of humanity, prosecuting revenge on those you feel have done you wrong? Good works or revenge?

Vengeance is mine says the Lord, Yahweh! God will judge, and not man, for He is the perfect Judge and will Judge in all righteousness. All have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God, me, you, all of us. For it is against God, that any of us sin. And it is His forgiveness we all must seek in order to know Life. Freedom is obtained in being forgiven and in forgiving those who offend us... its the hardest thing in the world, to forgive... know His forgiveness, and give your lust for vengeance to Him and be filled with life, ask Jesus to come into your heart and soul and be forgiven.

He is in danger like Malcolm X was and we know who was behind that.

I wonder if Farakahan issued this kind of warning before he had malcolm X murdered?

Sometimes the truth hurts.

I know Obama is a racist, but I fail to see how that puts him more at risk.

“and it has created a negative climate that could lead to assassination attempts on the first black president.”

In that case, we better play it safe and elect a replacement in November.

While Calypso Louie is the voice du jour bellowing racism, hatred of Obama because he is black ad nauseum, whites in this country have to realize that this slave-guilt perpetuated by liberals and progressives will never, ever go away.

Blacks in this country have become too accustomed to blame racism when incompetence is the culprit. It is the fallback standard and it will never go away, not with this half-black president, nor any future non-white president - EVER. It has become a code pair in the DNA.

In 1933, the Reichstag fire incident created the excuse for the Nazis to seize power.

Do not be surprised if some incident occurs which Barry will use as an excuse to clamp down on the "vast right-wing conspiracy", and which will trigger widespread rioting by Democrat constituencies.
