They’re baaaaaack. Louis Farrakhan and Michael Pfleger, the Jew-bashing, race-hustling Friends of Barack Obama and Jeremiah Wright, reared their heads this weekend.
With demagogic pals like these…
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?”
Er, never mind that the most recent murder-minded plotter headed toward the Capitol was a Moroccan Muslim jihadist.
Watch the MSM look the other way at Farrakhan’s usual, anti-Semitic tripe. Oh, and when Obama’s friends invoke Satan? Ho-hum:
Farrakhan drew a distinction between noble Jews and followers of “the synagogue of Satan,” and he pointed to a recent incident in which the publisher of a Jewish magazine suggested Israeli security forces could help preserve Israel by killing Obama. He attacked Israeli policies, while also directing criticism at perceived Jewish influence in the U.S.
“Jewish people were not the origin of Hollywood, but they took it over,” he said, blaming the entertainment industry for degrading the country’s morality.
As he spoke, Farrakhan was flanked by dozens of associates and dignitaries, including another controversial religious figure based in Chicago: theRev. Michael Pfleger, who stood to receive praise from Farrakhan and applause from the crowd.
