Nation of Islam leader, Louis Farrakhan in a recent sermon from his Pulpit of Hate, referred to Senator Barack Obama as “The Messiah”.
Farrakhan definately stated without a doubt, that when Obama talks “the Messiah is absolutely speaking.”
Speaking to a large crowd from behind his pulpit on Feb. 24 with a Nation of Islam Saviour’s Day 2008 sign, Farrakhan proclaims,
“You are the instruments that God is going to use to bring about universal change, and that is why Barack Obama has captured the youth. And he has involved young people in a political process that they didn’t care anything about. That’s a sign. When the Messiah speaks, the youth will hear, and the Messiah is absolutely speaking.”
“Brothers and sisters,” Farrakhan said, “Barack Obama to me, is a herald of the Messiah. Barack Obama is like the trumpet that alerts you something new, something better is on the way.”
Farrakhan goes on to say that the man Nation of Islam followers refer to as “the Savior,” Fard Muhammad, had a black father and a white mother, just as Obama did.
“A black man with a white mother became a savior to us,” he said. “A black man with a white mother could turn out to be one who can lift America from her fall.
“Would God allow Barack to be president of a country that has been so racist, so evil in its treatment of Hispanics, native Americans, blacks?” he asked. “Would God do something like that? Yeah. Of course he would. That’s to show you that the stone that the builders rejected has become the headstone of the corner. This is a sign to you. It’s the time of our rise. It’s the time that we should take our place. The future is all about you.”
I have extensive experience in dealing with the members of the Nation of Islam. I was a Corrections Officer for the Michigan Dept. Of Corrections for over ten years and witnessed first hand the work of Farrakhan’s followers. Drug Dealing, Prostitution, Extortion, and assaultive behavior. Many members of the Prison Muslim Groups like the NOI, Mulanic Muslims, and the Moorish Americans had connections with violent Chicago street gangs such as The Black Gangster Disciple Nation, and the Vice Lords.
I have seen the brutality of physical attacks against staff and prisoners, for example two vicious attacks against our Prison Chaplain and several times I personally was targeted by members of the Nation of Islam for my activities of monitoring their services when I was the Chapel Officer on Friday evenings which the Officers use to refer to as “Hate Day”.
