No-bama, continued (again)
Posted by Godefroi on January 31, 2008
OK…there’s a possibility that this report is spurious, though in my opinion that possibility is small, considering what I’ve already discovered (and written) about him here and here, which are very much in line with NOI positions (other than the “Christian” part).
If it’s true, it should be an additional nail in the coffin of his bid for the Presidency.
Responding to criticism by Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen, Barack Obama declared his strong opposition to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan:
I decry racism and anti-Semitism in every form and strongly condemn the anti-Semitic statements made by Minister Farrakhan.
Obama also went on to condemn his Church’s award to Farrakhan and his minister’s tight relationship with him.
But a former Obama insider says that Obama’s sudden aversion to NOI and Farrakhan is belied by the fact that Obama employed and continues to employ several Farrakhan acolytes in high positions on his Illinois and U.S. Senate campaign and office staffs. I have verified that this person–who agreed to talk on the condition of anonymity–held a key position in the Obama campaign.
The rest is here.
