Farrakhan Condemns The Killing Of Gadhafi

From the Chicago Tribune:

Farrakhan condemns killing of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi

Controversial Nation of Islam leader Minister Louis Farrakhan condemned the killing of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi on Tuesday, warning that America and other western powers will soon face severe consequences for their support of the uprising that led to the dictator’s death.

“I know something of the good of Moammar Gadhafi that made me to love him as a brother and to feel a great sense of loss at his assassination,” Farrakhan said during a two-hour interview with radio host Cliff Kelley on WVON-AM.

Later in the show, he said: “Gadhafi died in honor, fighting for the Libya that he believed in.”

Chicago’s Mosque Maryam, the Nation of Islam’s international headquarters, was purchased 40 years ago with a $3 million loan from Gadhafi, but Farrakhan said his admiration of Gadhafi was not tied to Gadhafi’s money or power

Of course not. Who could think such a thing?

Farrakhan acknowledged that Gadhafi had killed people, but he said all other world leaders, including President Barack Obama, are responsible for the deaths of others.

“Did he kill people? Well, hell, did our president kill people? Talk back to me!” Farrakhan said, prompting some of his supporters to say, “Yes,” in reply.

“You have made your president an assassin, that the only value that he has now is that he was responsible for the death of (al-Qaida leader) Osama bin Laden,” Farrakhan said, his voice rising. “He was captured without a weapon. He should have been brought to America, put on trial for the American people to see this man. But he was executed so you will never know the real truth.”

The truth being that 9/11 was an ‘inside job’ and Osama Bin Laden was blameless.

Farrakhan blamed Obama’s advisers ­ — whom he called “wicked demons” – for what he sees as a flawed American foreign policy that he said serves the interests of the powerful international corporations, not working-class Americans.

And by "powerful international corporations" Farrakhan means ‘the Jews.’ Just like those idealistic kids in the Occupy Wall Street protests.

“Now, Moammar Gadhafi and his sons lie dead,” Farrakhan said. Former Iraqi President “Saddam Hussein and his sons lie dead. Well, what about your sons?

“They’re dying in Iraq on the basis of a lie. They’re dying in Afghanistan on the basis of a lie. And now (U.S. military) drones are in Pakistan, drones in Somalia, drones in Yemen. When will it stop? America, do you think that you can get away with this?”

He sounds just like his other close friend and Mr. Obama’s spiritual leader, the Reverend Wright.

Farrakhan said the American media, which he said is controlled by banks, willingly tarnished Gadhafi’s image. During a commercial break, he said the media “is bought and paid for.”

Of course when Mr. Farrakhan says "banks" he means ‘the Jews.’ Just the like those idealistic youths in the Occupy Wall Street crowd.

“You don’t have a democracy when you don’t have a free press,” he told the reporters and photographers in the studio during the break. “You’re all slaves, and you love it. So you deserve what you get – the erosion of your democracy. You’ll soon be the laughingstock of the world.”

Whereas Mr. Farrakhan is not a laughingstock.

Farrakhan also said that America and its allies are “in for a shock” if they think that new governments in Libya, Egypt and other North African and Middle Eastern countries will automatically be pro-U.S.

Well, even Farrakhan can’t always be wrong.

Instead, he said, the U.S. could find itself with a revolution of its own. He pointed to the Occupy Wall Street movement as evidence of growing unrest in the U.S.

What a shock that Farrakhan would be a Occupy Wall Street supporter.

“This is going to happen all over the world,” Farrakhan said. “I want you to know that you’re through as a world power. Through, through.”

We won’t be ‘through’ as long as we have our mother ship to go home to.

But come to think of it, isn’t this what Mr. Obama tells us?
