Obama thinks 4 Americans being killed in Benghazi is funny

What kind of a heartless, soul-less man is this?
Last night, Steve Kroft interviewed Obama and Hillary Clinton on CBS’s 60 Minutes. After the two interviewees did their cooing and gooing love-fest (7:35 mark in Part 1 of the interview, below):

Kroft finally got around to asking the two about the terrorist attacks in Benghazi which took the lives of four Americans: Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty who provided security at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.
This is what Obama said (3:40 mark):

“You know, I remember Bob Gates, you know, first thing he said to me, I think maybe first week or two that I was there and we were meeting in the Oval Office and he, obviously, been through seven presidents or something. And he says, ‘Mr. President, one thing I can guarantee you is that at this moment, somewhere, somehow, somebody in the federal government is screwing up.'” (Laughter)
Obama thinks the State Department “screwing up” Benghazi is funny.
But then, this is the same man who went to bed after being told about the Benghazi attack as it was happening.
This is the same man who, in a previous interview last September by the same Steve Kroft, had referred to the four Americans being killed in Benghazi as “bumps on the road.”

Obama purges U.S. military command (Part 1)

Several days ago, FOTM’s lowtechgrannie posted a video of a media rarity — a reporter who doesn’t toe the party line and isn’t afraid to speak the truth. He’s Fox19 Cincinnati news anchor and investigative reporter Ben Swann.
At the end of the video, Swann noted that in the space of less than one month after the 7-hour Islamic terrorist attack of September 22, 2012, on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, four high-level U.S. military flag officers had been removed, for one ostensible reason or another. The four are Generals Petraeus, Allen, and Ham, and Admiral Gaouette. (In the U.S. military, flag officers are general officers in the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard of such senior rank that they are entitled to fly their own flags to mark where the officer exercises command.)
Swann withheld speculating on what this quite unprecedented attrition of senior U.S. military officers means. But this attrition cries out for some effort at explanation, no matter how speculative.

We’ll begin with the facts that we’ve been told.

1. General David Petraeus

Gen. Petraeus and Paula Broadwell

Gen. Petraeus and Paula Broadwell


A highly-decorated four-star general who had served over 37 years in the U.S. Army, 60-year-old David Petraeus had been Commander of the International Security Assistance Force; Commander of U.S. Forces Afghanistan; 10th Commander, U.S. Central Command; and Commanding General of Multi-National Force – Iraq who oversaw all coalition forces in Iraq.
On September 6, 2011, Obama recruited Petraeus to be Director of the Central Intelligence Agency. A week before, in anticipation of that appointment, Petraeus had retired from the U.S. Army.
Petraeus lasted 14 months as CIA director. On November 9, 2012, he resigned from the CIA, citing his extramarital affair with Paula Broadwell, a married woman who is the principal author of Petraeus’ biography, All In: The Education of General David Petraeus. Petraeus claims that the affair had begun in late 2011 when he was no longer an active duty military officer, and ended in the summer of 2012. The affair reportedly was discovered in the course of an FBI investigation into harassing emails that Broadwell had been sending to Jill Kelley, a Tampa socialite and a longstanding family friend of the Petraeuses whom Broadwell perceived to be a romantic rival.

2. General John R. Allen

Gen. Allen (l); Jill Kelley (r)


A four-star general of the U.S. Marine Corps, 58-year-old General John Allen had succeeded Petraeus as Commander of U.S. Forces Afghanistan on July 18, 2011. He was nominated to be NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander, Europe, pending confirmation by the United States Senate.
As part of the fallout of the Petraeus-Broadwell affair, correspondence between Allen and Jill Kelley also came to light. The FBI reportedly uncovered 20,000 to 30,000 pages of correspondence — mostly email — between Allen and Kelley from 2010 to 2012.  Reportedly, their correspondence was “flirtatious” and “inappropriate” as Allen and Kelley are both married, but not to each other. (Good grief. How could a 4-star general even have so much free time as to write 20,000 to 30,000 emails in the space of two years to ANYONE?)
On November 13, 2012, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta suspended Allen’s confirmation hearing, pending investigations into the general’s “inappropriate communication” with Kelley. Panetta also requested Congress to speed the confirmation of General Joseph Dunford to take over as commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan. In effect, not only will Allen not be promoted, he has lost his present command post in Afghanistan.

3. General Carter F. Ham

U.S. Army General Carter Ham

A well-decorated U.S. Army general, 60-year-old Ham became Commander of U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) on March 8, 2011.
U.S. AFRICOM is one of nine Unified Combatant Commands of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). As one of six that are regionally focused, AFRICOM is devoted solely to Africa. James S. Robbins of The Washington Times writes that Gen. Ham “is a very well regarded officer who made AFRICOM into a true Combatant Command after the ineffective leadership of his predecessor, General William E. ‘Kip’ Ward.”
On October 18, 2012, in a DoD news briefing, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta announced that Gen. Ham was relieved fired: “Today I am very pleased to announce that President Obama will nominate Army Gen. David Rodriguez to succeed Gen. Carter Ham as commander of U.S. Africa Command.”
According to Joint doctrine, “the tour length for combatant commanders and Defense agency directors is three years.” But Gen. Ham had only been in the commander position at AFRICOM for a year and a half and the informal word was that he wasn’t scheduled to rotate out until March 2013.
Pat Dollard of BareNakedIslam claims that the scuttlebutt is that, on September 11, 2012, Gen. Ham had received the same e-mails the White House received — from our people in Benghazi, requesting help/support as the terrorist attack was taking place. Ham immediately had a rapid response unit ready and communicated to the Pentagon that he had the unit ready. Dollard writes:

“General Ham then received the order to stand down. His response was to screw it, he was going to help anyhow. Within 30 seconds to a minute after making the move to respond, his second in command apprehended General Ham and told him that he was now relieved of his command.”

Gen. Ham’s “second in command” is not named. The Pentagon’s official line is that Ham had retired.

4. Rear Admiral Charles M. Gaouette

Rear Admiral Charles Gaouette

Rear Admiral Charles Gaouette


The recipient of various personal decorations and unit awards, including the Vice Admiral James Bond Stockdale Award for inspirational leadership in 2003, Rear Admiral Charles Gaouette was promoted to Commander of Carrier Strike Group 3 (aka John C. Stennis Carrier Strike Group) in April 2012.
Carrier Strike Group 3 is one of five U.S. Navy carrier strike groups currently assigned to the U.S. Pacific Fleet. U.S. Navy carrier strike groups are employed in a variety of roles that involve gaining and maintaining sea control and projecting power ashore, as well as projecting naval airpower ashore.
The aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis is the strike group’s current flagship, and as of 2012, other units assigned to Carrier Strike Group 3 include Carrier Air Wing Nine; the guided-missile cruisers USS Mobile Bay and USS Antietam; and the ships of Destroyer Squadron 21, the guided-missile destroyers USS Wayne E. Meyer, USS Dewey, USS Kidd, and USS Milius.
Carrier Group Three formed the core of the naval power during the initial phase of Operation Enduring Freedom in 2001. “Operation Enduring Freedom” is the official name used by the U.S. government for the War in Afghanistan, together with a number of smaller military actions, under the umbrella of the Global “War on Terror”. On 16 July 2012, the U.S. Department of Defense announced that the scheduled deployment of Carrier Strike Group Ten was advanced by four months, with its anticipated area of operation shifting from the U.S. Seventh Fleet in the Western Pacific to the U.S. Fifth Fleet in the Persian Gulf and North Arabian Sea. On 27 August 2012, four months ahead of schedule, Carrier Strike Group Three departed for an eight-month deployment to the U.S. Fifth Fleet under the command of Rear Admiral Charles M. Gaouette.
On October 27, 2012, the commander of the U.S. Fifth Fleet, Vice Admiral John W. Miller, ordered the temporary re-assignment of Rear Admiral Charles M. Gaouette pending the results of an investigation by the Naval Inspector General. Gaouette’s chief of staff, Captain William C. Minter, will lead the strike group until the arrival of Rear Admiral Troy M. (“Mike”) Shoemaker, who will assume command of the strike group.
Tom Lombardo writes for the Navy Times, Oct. 27, 2012, that Adm. Gaouette was relieved, mid-deployment, and is accused of “inappropriate leadership judgment,” according to a Navy official familiar with the case. Gaouette was told to go home — to return to the Carrier Strike Group’s homeport in Bremerton, Washington, until the investigation is complete.

There you have it. Within two months after the Benghazi attack, four senior U.S. military officers were purged:

  • Gen. Ham, on October 18.
  • Adm. Gaouette, on October 27.
  • Gen. Petraeus, on November 9.
  • Gen. Allen, on November 13.

Ostensibly, Petraeus’ “retirement” and Allen’s suspended promotion are due to both men’s moral conduct. But surely we are not so naive as to think that Petraeus and Allen are the only U.S. military officers who’ve ever committed adultery or written flirtatious email. As for Ham’s “retirement” and Gaouette’s “temporary re-assignment” (reassignment to what?), there is not even a whisper that either man’s morals or personal conduct is at issue.
So what should we make of all this? Is it all just coincidence or something more sinister?
Ann Barnhardt, in her blog of Nov. 13, 2012, calls it Obama’s “night of the long knives.”
The last step in Hitler’s quest for total, dictatorial power was the purging of the German military of any factions that were in any way autonomous and not 100% loyal to him, specifically the SA (Sturmabteilung or Storm Detachment). The SA was run by Ernst Rohm. On June 30, 1934, the “Night of the Long Knives” was executed when Hitler had Rohm and the rest of the SA leaders killed. Hitler publicly explained that the purge was executed because of sexual perversion in the ranks of the SA who were “plotting” against him.
Barnhardt writes:

And now, the Obama putsch regime is purging them and anyone else they deem to be a threat. It won’t surprise me if Petraeus is indeed court martialed and stripped of his pension, because that is what the rest of the flag officer corps fears more than death. Make an example of Petraeus, and maybe Allen, and that will whip the rest of them into line.

This process of a totalitarian oligarchy constantly purging its own ranks in fits of paranoia and demands for total personal loyalty is as old as the hills. Lenin and Stalin eventually murdered almost every person that entered their inner-circles. Same with Mao. Same with Saddam Hussein. Same with the three Kims in North Korea. Beyond the Night of the Long Knives, Hitler was also having his own people killed continuously.

Just as the Night of the Long Knives in ’34 was just the beginning, so too is this situation in the former American republic just the beginning.

Writing for Veterans Today, Gordon Duff has an even more provocative take on the four military officers:

The decision [to fire Admiral Gaouette] was made based on a conversation with the Secretary of Defense who, at the end of the talk, believed Gaouette was part of a group of military officers who have been under suspicion for planning a “Seven Days in May” type overthrow of the US government if President Obama is re-elected.

This is not conjecture, dozens of key officers face firing, hundreds are under investigation, all with direct ties to extremist elements in the Republican Party and the Israeli lobby.

Reports received are sourced at the highest levels of the Pentagon and indicate that the administration has been aware of these plans for months.

Whatever the truth, one thing of which we can be sure is that the firings of three generals and an admiral have something (or everything) to do with the Benghazi attack. It’ll be interesting if the newly-elected 113th U.S. Congress will conduct serious investigations and hearings on Benghazi, although Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida) is already on record as being opposed to an independent investigation.
I wouldn’t hold my breath….

Obama went to bed after being told about Benghazi attack as it was happening

On September 11, 2001, President George W. Bush was told that a passenger plane had flown into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York, followed by another. Bush then promptly went to bed.

No, that didn’t happen. But if it had, we’d still be hearing the outcry from the MSM.

4 days ago, on September 21, 2012, a Fox News Special Report conveyed the startling news that Barry Soetoro Obama was informed about the attack on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya, within 90 minutes of it beginning.

B.S. Obama undoubtedly was told that the attacks involved AK-47s and rocket-propelled grenades, and that our consulate staff were in grave danger, including our ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens. And yet, knowing all this and not knowing the status of Ambassador Stevens, B.S. Obama went quietly to bed.

Amb. Stevens’ body being dragged through the streets of Benghazi

Daniel Greenfield of Right Side News, Sept. 23, 2012, writes:

“Forget the 3 AM phone call. Obama couldn’t even be trusted with an 11 PM phone call. They say that only a man with a clear conscience, or no conscience at all, can sleep this way. But hey, he had to be rested for the next fundraiser and the next party. Jay-Z and Beyonce, unlike dead ambassadors and Libyan militias, actually matter.”

I don’t know why Greenfield is so upset with B.S. Obama. After all, the POS himself told CBS 60 Minutes that the attacks on our embassies and consulates and the killing of Amb. Stevens and three other Americans (Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods, and Glen Doherty) are mere “bumps in the road“.

A lack of empathy is one of the defining attributes of Narcissistic Personality Disorder. B.S. Obama is a narcissist without empathy for other people. Remember his inappropriate laughter throughout his interview on the economy with Steve Kroft on CBS’ “60 Minutes” in March 2009? Kroft got so exasperated, he said to the POS:

“You’re sitting here. And you’re– you are laughing. You are laughing about some of these problems.”

Empathy is putting ourselves in another’s “shoes” so that we feel at least some of what another is feeling. Developmental psychologists tell us that empathy is an inborn trait of human beings: Even newborn babies display a primitive form of empathy called “global (or diffused) empathy” when they cry upon hearing another baby cry.

Philosophers and ethicists tell us empathy is the basis of our morality: “Do to others as you would have others done unto you”. This is why psychopaths and sociopaths not only lack empathy, they are also remorseless — without a conscience.

All of which means there’s something very wrong with B.S. Obama. Simply put, we have a monster in the White House.

Another U.S. ambassador attacked by mob

This time by a Chinese mob.

That’s what happens when we have an administration in the White House who apologizes instead of standing up for our values and securing the safety of our diplomats and personnel abroad. America appears weak and wimpy because many in the world (and in America) see might as strength, and passivity as weakness.

Projecting Weakness: Another U.S. Ambassador Attacked

by John Nolte – Breitbart.com – 19 Sep 2012

While our president parties with Jay-Z and David Letterman; while our State Department blames a movie for four murders in Libya; while our Embassy in Cairo doubles down on an apology to the terrorists who attacked it; while Obama farms out embassy security to private security firms in Britain; while we refuse to point to our enemy and call it by name; while Obama treats the atrocities in Egypt and Libya as crime scenes instead of terrorist attacks — the message this White House is sending out to the world is that if you target American ambassadors the repercussions might be a strongly worded statement.

How else to explain yet another brazen attack on an American ambassador:

A car carrying the U.S. ambassador to China was mildly damaged after becoming the target of boisterous anti-Japan demonstrators who were expressing outrage over a territorial dispute [the Diaoyutai or Senkaku islets in the East China Sea] and marking the 81st anniversary of Japan’s invasion of China.

The State Department said in a statement Wednesday that Ambassador Gary Locke was unhurt in Tuesday’s incident, and that diplomats have expressed concerns to the Chinese Foreign Ministry.

The statement said around 50 protesters surrounded Locke’s car as he tried to enter the embassy and were eventually removed by Chinese security personnel.

The incident comes amid heightened vigilance for American diplomats following violent attacks on U.S. embassies in Libya, Yemen and Egypt. The statement said embassy officials have asked the Chinese government to do everything possible to protect American facilities and personnel.

It’s wholly obvious that under the feckless leadership of President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton that the United States is no longer respected or feared. And why would anyone fear us?

Our response to the attacks in Egypt and Libya looked like an episode of “C.S.I” meets “Law and Order,” which means the Beijing protesters knew they had nothing to fear.

And they were right.

Look at our reaction to this latest attack:

The statement said embassy officials have asked the Chinese government to do everything possible to protect American facilities and personnel.

Ooh. Slow down, State Department. We don’t want to upset the bad guys.

It’s open season on our embassies and foreign service personnel. Just because the media won’t report it, doesn’t mean it’s not true.

2 ex-Navy SEALS killed with Amb. Stevens

Most, if not all, of the news on the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, has centered on the torture and killing of Ambassador Christopher Stevens. Our own intelligence says the attack was “well-planned” and “well-coordinated” with “outside” connections, i.e., al-Qaeda.

U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens

But three other Americans were also killed, although we don’t know the details of their murders as we do about Stevens’.

We know that one of the three is a State Department staffer, Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith.

Sean Smith

Now we have the names and identities of the remaining two. They are former Navy SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty. I don’t want them to be forgotten.

Tyrone Woods (l); Glen Doherty (r)

The Associated Press reports, Sept. 14, 2012:

Two of the Americans killed Tuesday in the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, were former Navy SEALs from San Diego County who always asked to be on the front lines, family, friends and government officials said.

Tyrone S. Woods and Glen A. Doherty, who both provided security at the consulate, were killed in the Tuesday attack along with U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and State Department employee Sean Smith, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said in a statement Thursday.

Woods, 41, was from Imperial Beach south of San Diego and Doherty, a native of Massachusetts, had lived in Encinitas, north of San Diego.

“Tyrone S. Woods and Glen A. Doherty were both decorated military veterans who served our country with honor and distinction,” Clinton’s statement said.

Woods, a Navy SEAL for two decades whose friends called him “Rone,” served multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, Clinton said. Since 2010 he had protected American diplomats in posts from Central America to the Middle East.

Dr. Timothy Rasmusson, Woods’ former brother-in-law, said Woods was a hard-charging Navy SEAL who joined the military straight out of high school and went to work for military contractors after leaving the service a few years ago. To unwind, he drove his motorcycle and Ford Mustang at top speeds. “He was like a guy out of the movies,” Rasmusson said. “He was on the edge. He was always volunteering for the mission. He always wanted to be on the front line. Everything was full speed.”

Rasmusson said Woods and his sister, Patricia Ann So, divorced about 10 years ago and have rarely spoken, though the split was amicable. They had two teenage boys, Tyrone Jr. and Hunter, who live in San Diego with their mother. Woods is also survived by his wife and another son, Kai, who was born a few months ago.

Doherty, 42, worked in private security around the world since leaving the Navy in 2005, and between stints worked as a personal trainer in the San Diego area. A native of Winchester, Mass., just north of Boston, he wrote a 2010 book called “The 21st Century Sniper: A Complete Practical Guide” along with friend and former colleague Brandon Webb. An updated version of the book, about how to become a good marksman, is expected out in January.

Webb told The Associated Press his friend wouldn’t have sought sympathy. “Don’t feel sorry for him. He wouldn’t have it,” Webb said. “He died serving with men he respected, protecting the freedoms we enjoy as Americans and doing something he loved.”

Doherty became a Navy SEAL in 1995. He worked as a paramedic and sniper in the Middle East, responding to the destroyer Cole attack among his missions, and served two tours in Iraq. Along with his brother, his survivors include his parents, Bernard and Barbara, and a sister, Kathleen.

God bless you, brave men who served America with honor.

You were betrayed by your own government.

May you rest in peace.

Video of Amb. Stevens being dragged by Muslim savages

A YouTube user “Abdalgadar Fadi” has uploaded a video on the Arabic-language version of the video sharing site, purporting to show US Ambassador Christopher Stevens being dragged from our consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

The translation of the text below the video reads: “Moment directed the U.S. ambassador before his death” and the headline translates to: “U.S. Ambassador and the people of Benghazi rescue attempt before his death.”

You can hear the evil thugs excitedly cheering.

But the POS’s administration and the complicit mainstream media want you to think that the evil thugs were provoked by a film denigrating Islam and Muhammad. And then the POS’s administration and the complicit mainstream media go after the film’s makers, instead of the evil thugs.

That’s the definition of scapegoating.

The Independent: Foggy Bottom Warned of Attack 48 Hours in Advance – Did Nothing

I have tried most diligently to stay away from all this today, as I am so distraught over it all I have been driven nearly to tears several times over the last couple of days. Fortunately, I was gone a good part of the day and had little access to a computer.

I finally decided to take a peak at Drudge a little while ago, only to see the following in big block red letters – PAPER: U.S. WARNED OF EMBASSY ATTACK BUT DID NOTHING

I then clicked on the link and in very short order could not believe what I was reading.

However, on second thought…

Via independent.co.uk  (emphasis and photos are mine):

Revealed: inside story of US envoy’s assassination

Exclusive: America ‘was warned of embassy attack but did nothing’

The killings of the US ambassador to Libya and three of his staff were likely to have been the result of a serious and continuing security breach, The Independent can reveal.

American officials believe the attack was planned, but Chris Stevens had been back in the country only a short while and the details of his visit to Benghazi, where he and his staff died, were meant to be confidential.

The US administration is now facing a crisis in Libya. Sensitive documents have gone missing from the consulate in Benghazi and the supposedly secret location of the “safe house” in the city, where the staff had retreated, came under sustained mortar attack. Other such refuges across the country are no longer deemed “safe”.

Foggy Bottom

Some of the missing papers from the consulate are said to list names of Libyans who are working with Americans, putting them potentially at risk from extremist groups, while some of the other documents are said to relate to oil contracts.

According to senior diplomatic sources, the US State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American missions may be targeted, but no warnings were given for diplomats to go on high alert and “lockdown”, under which movement is severely restricted.

Mr Stevens had been on a visit to Germany, Austria and Sweden and had just returned to Libya when the Benghazi trip took place with the US embassy’s security staff deciding that the trip could be undertaken safely.

Eight Americans, some from the military, were wounded in the attack which claimed the lives of Mr Stevens, Sean Smith, an information officer, and two US Marines. All staff from Benghazi have now been moved to the capital, Tripoli, and those whose work is deemed to be non-essential may be flown out of Libya.

In the meantime a Marine Corps FAST Anti-Terrorism Reaction Team has already arrived in the country from a base in Spain and other personnel are believed to be on the way. Additional units have been put on standby to move to other states where their presence may be needed in the outbreak of anti-American fury triggered by publicity about a film which demeaned the Prophet Mohamed.

Y0u may read the rest at this link.

Broom Hilda

If this is true, or even fifty-percent true, a whole bunch of heads need to roll, starting with Hillary Clinton’s.

As for our dear POtuS and CIC, it is just possible that, given the recent revelation that he appears to have little interest in attending security briefings, he may very well have not known of the warnings (in fact, he is still skipping them despite the recent attacks), but he is still the HMFWIC, and the proverbial “buck” ultimately stops with him.

I guess fund-raising in the desert trumps the security of our embassy and consulate personnel living and working abroad in often hostile places.

What is really sad is that we are only hearing about this from the British media, as it appears their American counterparts are much too busy trying to destroy the candidacy of Mitt Romney to be bothered.

After all, the comrade Dear Ruler must be protected at all costs.

And I am not buying for a second that this was all caused by some obscure video concerning Mohamed, as there is mounting evidence that the attacks had been in planning for some time, and they were then carried out on 9/11/2012.

I do not believe in coincidences – especially when it comes to bass-ackward, 7th Century, functionally illiterate, flea-infested primitive camel-washers.

I will have more on this in the coming days, but this is all I can stomach for now.

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan makes death threat

Last Saturday night, April 14, 2012, American black Muslim leader Louis Farrakhan was the keynote speaker at the Diversity Leadership Conference in LeMoyne-Owen College, a private, historically black, 4-year college in Memphis, TN.
Speaking to a crowd of about 1,400, Farrakhan issued a veiled threat that “people…are gonna kill their leaders” (0:47 mark):

I’ve transcribed what Farrakhan said in the video clip:
“Now if you want to lead black people, you can’t love money more than you love your people. You can’t love the big house, the big car, more than you love the advancement of your people because the enemy prints money every day that has no value. So there is no real leadership if it’s not rooted in moral character.
You want to be leaders, right? You’re sure? You’re sure?
You’d better check yourself ’cause leadership is nothing to play with. Because people tomorrow, maybe in a few days, are gonna kill their leaders who’ve been sellin’ them out.
That’s why we’re in the shape we’re in right now, because we have corrupt people or people who started out good but got corrupted.”
Ironically, as reported by Scott Carroll for The Commercial Appeal, Farrakhan had prefaced his keynote address by saying, “I didn’t come here today to stir up your emotions, I came to cause you to think.”
LeMoyne-Owen president Johnnie B. Watson said he was pleased to host Farrakhan, whom he called “an iconic figure.”
This is the same Louis Farrakhan who lives in a big house in Chicago, supported by Nation of Islam donors; who calls white people “blue-eyed devils”; who believes that salvation for black people will come in the form of a huge “mother wheel” UFO; and who praises Zimbabwe’s president-for-life dictator Robert Mugabe — the epitome of a corrupt leader — for his forced “redistribution” of white-owned land and property.
Although he had supported Barack Obama in 2008, Farrakhan is no longer a supporter because of Obama’s support for the 2011 military intervention in Libya, which Farrakhan strongly opposes due to his own support for Muammar al-Gaddafi. Farrakhan now calls Obama the “first Jewish president.”
Is Farrkhan’s death threat directed at Obama?
