"This young man is the hope of the entire world that America will change and be made better..This young man is capturing audiences of black and brown and red and yellow. If you look at Barack Obama's audiences and look at the effect of his words, those people are being transformed."
"A black man with a white mother became a savior to us...A black man with a white mother could turn out to be one who can lift America from her fall."
The `savior' Farrakhan is referring to is Fard Mohammed, who founded the Nation of Islam and came up with novel concepts like white people as devils created by Satan and the Spaceship that will lift the members of the NOI off the earth when Allah destroys whitey.
These remarks were made during a two hour speech by Farrakhan at the annual Saviours' Day celebration in Chicago.
Obama spokesmouth Bill Burton said in response: "Senator Obama has been clear in his objections to Minister Farrakhan's past pronouncements and has not solicited the minister's support."
Of course, Obama still belongs to a church whose pastor, a man Obama calls his `spiritual mentor' is an outspoken admirer of Louis Farrakhan and honored him with a major award.
Ask yourself...if your church gave an award to say, David Duke, would you still be a member and call the leader of that church your spiritul mentor?
In the face of that, a few polite `objections' look pretty pale in comparison.
And of course, there's also the fact that one is known by one's friends as well as one's enemies. If Louis Farrakhan, Al Sharpton and a number of officials with CAIR are lauding Obama, doesn't that say something about whom he is, all protestations to the contrary?
I think it does.
