Eschewing the coalitions that are critical to the left’s success, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan attacked President Barack Obama from the pulpit on Sunday for favoring of gay people and Israel over African-Americans.
Farrakhan was giving a sermon at the Union Temple Baptist Church in Washington, D.C., when he said Obama is preoccupied with protecting his legacy. The racist minister noted that the president seems to be worried about the fate of his signature health care law — Farrakhan described quickly-collapsing Obamacare as an “achievement.”
“That’s not your legacy,” Farrakhan declared.
“It’s in the street with your suffering people, Mr. President,” he said. “And if you can’t go and see about them, then don’t worry about your legacy … because the white people that you serve so well, they will preserve your legacy,” he said.
“The hell they will,” he added, heavy on the sarcasm.
“You didn’t earn your legacy with us,” Farrakhan continued. “We put you there. You fought for the rights of gay people …you fight for Israel. Your people are suffering and dying in the streets!”
Then again, he is not the first to dismiss any possibility that black Americans may owe a debt to Barack Obama.
