Farakhan calls Obama the Messiah

I was stunned at this one. I never thought Farakhan would talk about someone being greater than he imagined himself to be. This isn't politics. This is something else.

While Farakhan is obviously backing Obama in an almost adoring, awe struck manner, another preacher called Manning in a Harlem church very much objects to Obama. The black reaction to Obama is maybe more interesting than the liberal white reaction.

Another thing that is troubling is all the assassination talk going around. Secret Service gave him protection prior to the time it normall protects candidates, which is after they are nominated by a party I believe. Seems the KKK, at least certain elements want him to be elected. Their purpose is in hopes he will then be assassinated. I guess they think it will somehow help them stir up racial tensions. From the other direction there's a black video and song, done Jamaican style, which speaks of being elected on Friday, shot on Saturday, buried on Sunday.

It's like a lot of craziness going on out there over Obama. You have Jesse Jackson who in a truthful moment accidentally told everyone how he felt about Obama. I think a lot were shocked by it, others maybe assumed Jackson was suffering from some sort of jealousy over Obama's success. I don't think that was it. Many black people it seems look on Obama as a white man inside but sporting a black skin. Of course then you get back to his 20 year association with someone like Jeremiah Wright, but that doesn't matter to those blacks who suspect he's not really "black".

In a way I feel sorry for him. I think the media is using him for their own purposes and the main reason not being for his own good. What a let down that will be for him when the party's over. There's quite a number who want to see him elected, but not for himself, but for their own agendas. They want to use him as a pawn. His value as a pawn seems very close to the game of chess too, in which a piece is sacrificed to forward the aims of those pieces considered of greater value. Just run youtube search on his name and "assassination" and it's disturbing the number of videos that come up.

I just hope nothing bad happens to him by those on both sides of the political-racial-religious spectrums who feel it would help their cause.

The VW was "the people's car"

In reply to: Farakhan calls Obama the Messiah

....... conceived in Hitler's nazi reign of terror.

However, it turned out to be a great little car. Germans built both of the ones we had, but we never considered that they were constructed by nazi hands.

If Farakhan said that his favrite flavor of ice cream is vanilla, as is mine, does that mean that I support him?

This "guilt by association" bit is part of the continuing "muslim" attack.

muslim attack?

In reply to: The VW was "the people's car"

I don't see "guilt by association" or "muslim attack" anywhere in what Farakhan is saying. Although Farakhan is arguably muslim, of some odd flavor that doesn't seem directly associated with a more centrist islamic view, his speech about Obama I find to be extremely odd for him. The speech actually uses more Judeo-Christian imagery and concepts, but in application to Obama. The point I was making was the surprising (to me) strong divisions within the black community itself about Obama.
