Barack Obama tilhørte et radikalt miljø i Chicago før han ble valgt og ved en anledning ble det tatt et bilde av ham sammen med leder av Nation of Islam, Farrakhan.

Journalist Askia Mohammad tok bildet av Obama med Louis Farrakhan i 2005 under et arrangement for Congressional Black Caucus, en organisasjon for sorte representanter i Kongressen. Alle visste Obama var ambisiøs. Mohammad ble kontaktet av en representant for Black Caucus som ba om at bildet ikke ble publisert. Det kunne skade Obama.

Farrakhan og Nation of Islam er en etnosentrisk, rasistisk, antisemittisk organisasjon.

Men Obama var del av «the Chicago scene» hvor Farrakhan og pastor Jeremiah Wright var med. Det var en vedvarende kontakt mellom Obama og Farrakhan.

Although Obama tried to distance himself from Farrakhan while he was running for president, the two were closer than he let on.

A former top deputy to the Nation of Islam told Newsmax back in 2008 that Obama and Farrakhan had had “an open line between them” to discuss policy and strategy for many years.

Dr. Vibert White Jr., who spent most of his adult life as a member and ultimately top officer of the Nation of Islam, said, «Obama was ‘part of the Chicago scene’ where Farrakhan, Jesse Jackson, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr. and radicals would go to each other’s events and support each other’s causes.»

Obama var radikal. Han deltok i Nation of Islams Million Man March mot Washington i 1995.

Obama attended the NOI’s Million Man March in Washington, D.C., in October of 1995, an event organized by Louis Farrakhan and his then-pastor Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

“These are mean, cruel times, exemplified by a ‘lock ’em up, take no prisoners’ mentality that dominates the Republican-led Congress,” Obama said at the time.

I valgkampen kom det frem at Wright var Obamas pastor og flere av prekenene hans hadde vært fordømmende mot USA, antiamerikanske nærmest. Obama ble tvunget til å distansere seg fra Wright.

Mange sa ikke hva de visste. Hvis hele omfanget av Obamas holdninger og miljø hadde kommet frem, er det ikke sikkert han hadde vunnet.

Forbindelse med Farrakhan var ikke akkurat noen anbefaling:

Obama was pictured sharing the podium with members of the New Black Panther Party (including Malik Zulu Shabazz) at a 2007 campaign event in Selma, Alabama.

Farrakhan, who has made many outlandish statements over the years, received widespread condemnation in 2015 when he urged his followers to «stalk and kill» their enemies in the wake of high-profile police shootings of unarmed black men in Baltimore, Maryland, and Ferguson, Missouri.

In case it wasn’t clear, he added, “We must rise up and kill those who kill us. Stalk them and kill them and let them feel the pain of death that we are feeling.”

Then-President Barack Obama at the time had no comment.

Man kan ikke la være å se disse opplysningene i forbindelse med at Obama ikke ville ta ordet radikal islam i sin munn og renset ordet fra forebygging av terror.
