CHICAGO (AP) — Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan says a hateful climate is being created in the U.S. which may encourage an assassination attempt against President Barack Obama.
Farrakhan spoke Wednesday on WVON radio, a black-oriented Chicago station.
He pointed specifically to derisive comments, including the “N-word,” being allegedly shouted at legislators who supported Obama’s health care legislation. He also pointed to rallies where signs depicted Obama as Hitler.
PID COMMENT: Pay close attention to this ‘meme’ and remember that Farrakhan hailed Obama as ‘The Messiah’ in a 2008 speech.
