Photo emerges of Obama and Farrakhan together from 2005
A long-buried photograph showing a
smiling Barack Obama standing with virulent anti-white, anti-Semite Nation of
Islam leader Louis Farrakhan has emerged more than 12 years after it was taken.
Farrakhan and Hussein
The photo, taken in 2005 at a meeting
of the Congressional Black Caucus, was snapped by reporter Askia Muhammad.
Talking Points Memo has the back story:
Reached by TPM on
Thursday, Muhammad said a “staff member” for the CBC contacted him “sort of in
a panic” after he took the photo at a caucus meeting in 2005. TPM has published
the photo above with Muhammad’s permission.
“I sort of
understood what was going on,” Muhammad told TPM. “I promised and made
arrangements to give the picture to Leonard Farrakhan,” the minister’s
son-in-law and chief of staff.
Muhammad said he gave
away “the disk” from his camera but “copied the photograph from that day onto a
file” on his computer.
“Realizing that I had
given it up, I mean, it was sort of like a promise to keep the photograph
secret,” Muhammad said.
Muhammad said he did
not release his copy of the photograph because he thought it would be perceived
as a betrayal of that promise: “I was really, I guess, afraid of them.”
That's a pretty chilling admission.
Muhammad knew full well what the NOI was capable of and was apparently
frightened into silence.
Muhammad said he
thought the photograph would be “damaging politically” if it were released and
was afraid that someone might “break into his apartment” looking for it, like
“that Watergate crap.” He said he “felt a little bit more at ease” after
Farrakhan in 2016 claimed that Obama visited his home in
Chicago. Muhammad contacted Farrakhan in autumn 2017 with the “final
manuscript” for a self-published book containing the photo.
“I sent him a copy of
the manuscript suggesting that, showing him the picture, and saying to him, if he
did not object, I was going to publish it,” Muhammad said. “He had no
If the picture had been made public
before the 2008 election, would it have made a difference? I think 2008 was a
Democratic year anyway so Obama would probably have been elected despite the
connection to Farrakhan.
But what if the photo had emerged
during the primaries? Would it have helped Hillary Clinton? It's impossible to
judge but it's interesting speculation.
The photo reminds us just how
carefully the Obama team groomed his image to hide his radicalism. We're still
waiting for the LA Times to release a video where Obama was
said to praise anti-Israel radical Rashid Khalidi, a Palestinian apologist
for terrorism. Of course, Obama's ties to the radical preacher Jeremiah Wright
are well known, but what has never been understood about Obama were his
emotional and political ties to Farrakhan.
Ed. The photo, remember, was "taken...at a meeting of the Congressional Black Caucus." This the most dangerous and corrupt group in the House, yet thugs like Rep. John Lewis would have everyone believe that congressional Blacks are forever put upon by racist Whites.
