Is The President’s Life In Danger?

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan is well known for making inflammatory statements against Jews, white people and pretty much anyone he doesn’t like. On his recent college tour, Farrakhan makes some statements that one could construe is a threat against the President. If this is the case, surely the Secret Service would want to look into this once they’ve paid their Columbian prostitutes. Yet you know they won’t do anything. For whatever reason Farrakhan is off limits to investigation, much less prosecution.
It’s important to put Farrakhan’s statement into context, particularly historical context. In 2008 Farrakhan supported Obama for President, going so far as to call him the black Messiah. Keep in mind, Farrakhan’s version of Islam isn’t much different than Jeremiah Wright’s version of Christianity, he views the world as a giant racial battle. Clearly Farrakhan believed Obama was going to usher in a new era of race relations with blacks in position to destroy whites. He believed the next stage was set with Obama, which is why he called him the black Messiah.
But things haven’t gone as Farrakhan would have liked. The Nation of Islam was very much opposed to Obama’s actions in Libya. For whatever reason the Nation of Islam viewed Gaddafi as an ally. This led Farrakhan to call Obama the “son of the devil” and a “frontman for criminals.” Obama did not behave in what Farrakhan imagines was in the best interest of black people in taking out Gaddafi. There were other minor incidents as well, but Libya is no doubt the biggest problem Farrakhan has with Obama.
Fast forward to the other day when Farrakhan said the following to a group of college kids at LeMoyne-Owens College:
You want to be leaders, right? You sure, you sure? You better check yourself, because leadership is nothing to play with, because people tomorrow, maybe in a few days, are going to kill their leaders who have been selling them out. That‘s why we’re in the shape we’re in right now because we had corrupt people or people who started out good and got corrupted.
In Farrakhan’s world Obama started out good, he’s the black Messiah. Then he became corrupted and is a frontman for criminals and the son of the devil. Couple this with Farrakhan’s threat that in a matter of days leaders who sold out will be killed and one wonders why no one in the media is covering this and why there isn’t a Secret Service investigation. Obama is a sell out to the black cause according to Farrakhan, he’s a corrupted leader who started out good. Is it so outlandish as to conclude that Obama is a target for assassination?
Let’s look at Farrakhan’s history a little bit. He has assassinated people before. He so much as admits the Nation of Islam had Malcolm X killed. Watch the video, Farrakhan doesn’t “care about no white people’s law.” He claims they dealt with Malcolm “as a nation” and if they killed him “what the hell business is it of yours?” Take two things away from the video. Apparently murder is a “white people” law that blacks don’t have to follow. That generally fits in well with Islam, but we know the overwhelming majority of blacks don’t agree. Second, take away the brazenness of Farrakhan’s speech. He and the Nation of Islam had Malcolm X assassinated. When Farrakhan makes veiled threats of murder against corrupted sell outs and the President who was once considered the Messiah is now considered a corrupted sell out, his statements should be taken very seriously.
God forbid anything happen to President Obama. It would be a national tragedy if he should be assassinated or harmed in any way. As Christians we must pray for our leaders, no matter how much we disagree, no matter how evil they may be. We must pray that God would protect them and save their souls. Louis Farrakhan seems to be threatening the President. Doesn’t that at least deserve an investigation if not media coverage?
