Quite an interesting warning coming from the leader of the Nation of Islam, considering it is members of that group who have a sordid and violent past. It's also an interesting warning considering just months earlier, Farrakhan himself angrily denounced Barack Obama as a 'murderer' -- no wonder he thinks the President is in danger. It's just not from Tea Party people.
“He has done this before with Malcolm X. It is the Nation of Islam that killed Malcolm X. Period. No ifs, ands, or buts. I want you to know that yesterday he started talking about how they're going to set Muslims up, they're going to try to make it look like a Muslim killed Barack Obama and how dangerous this is. Somebody has to set the record straight,” Glenn said.
In a fiery lecture to thousands of followers of the Nation of Islam on Sunday in Chicago, Minister Louis Farrakhan warned that racial hatred could lead to attempts to assassinate President Barack Obama.
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?"
Farrakhan delivered his speech to an enthusiastic crowd of adherents packed loosely into the United Center for the Nation of Islam's annual observance of Saviours' Day, which celebrates the birth of the faith's founder, W. Fard Muhammad. This year's events marked the 82nd year of the religion's existence in North America.
Glenn then played audio from a Farrakhan speech in October of last year, where he claimed that Obama was actually a murderer and assasin.
Farrakhan said, “We voted for our brother, Barack. Beautiful human being with a sweet heart. And now he's an assassin. They've turned him... into them. You didn't hear me. They turned. They brought him to England. See? Oh, now he can stay in Buckingham palace. Nobody stayed there. Just a few presidents. Why him? Why? See, we know this enemy. Satan deceived the whole world. You talk about a man killing his own people when you lie to the American people saying that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. When you lie and then take innocent young men who come to serve their country and send them to die in Iraq, in Afghanistan, over lies, that's a murderer in the White House! Who will say it?"
“I'm telling you this is a clear and present danger to the president of the United States. Will someone in the Secret Service or DOJ investigate what is happening at the Nation of Islam?” Glenn said.
