GLENN: This is Louis Farrakhan. He is talking to the nation of Islam in a speech. Listen carefully to what he says.
FARRAKHAN: You are the instruments that God is going to use to bring about universal change and that's why Barack has captured the youth.
GLENN: Stop, stop, stop. You are the instruments -- talking to the nation of Islam -- you are the instruments in a God is going to use to change, make universal changes. And that's why Obama is connecting to the youth. Okay?
FARRAKHAN: And he has involved young people in a political process that they didn't care anything about. When the Messiah speaks, the youth will hear, and the Messiah is absolutely speaking.
GLENN: Now, the question is, who is he calling the Messiah? Is he saying that -- is he saying that when -- that Barack Obama is the Messiah? Is that what he's saying? To me it doesn't matter. I do believe that's what he's saying. I mean, if the you -- you know, if you listen to some of the rhetoric of some of these people -- and I've talked to -- what was the name of that Black Panther guy who, I mean went almost into a trance and it was like, "Oh, I pray, oh sacred one, that the world will wake up." Yeah, Malik Shabazz. I pray that the world will wake up and America will see, you know, Barack Obama for what he is. Ooh, so do I. But it doesn't matter. You are the instruments I'm quoting, you are the instruments of God and the instruments that God is going to use to bring about universal change and that is why Barack has captured the youth, and he has involved young people in a political process that they didn't care anything about. That is a sign. And when the Messiah speaks, the youth will hear, and the Messiah is absolutely speaking.
It could be that the Messiah is speaking and that's why -- and that's what -- Barack Obama is listening to the Messiah and that's why he's speaking, but Louis Farrakhan thinks that either Barack Obama is the Messiah or that Barack Obama is an instrument in the Messiah's hand. And also the instruments in his hand is the nation of Islam, the followers, that they are going to bring about universal change. That's not the change I've been hoping for. I don't know about you. We are at a crossroads, America, and you must get involved. And I don't mean campaign for John McCain. I mean campaign for truth. I mean search your souls. I mean stop both of these parties from taking our country. .
You know what, I've always said they are both taking us to the same destination. One's on a jet plane, one's on a steam train. Gang, the destination, we are one stop away from the destination. So it is time to know that one way or another that plane or that train is coming into the station quickly and we need to stand up and say, enough, you must listen to us, stop, stop your spending, stop your lies, stop the corruption and listen to us. Because we don't want to go where you're taking us, because where you're taking us is a socialist state that very soon, with more tragedy on the way, with another big 9/11 type event or somebody stupid in this country is saying, oh, well, I'm going to get them. When something, God forbid, a 9/11 or a Timothy McVeigh, your rights will go away. And this will be a fascist state. You must stand up and be participating. You must tell your friends. Don't worry about those you can't wake up. Wake up the ones you know you can.
