Just the headline scares the s@#! out of me. When you have nutcases like Farrakhan and Iranian president Yaba Daba Doo cheering an Obama victory, you have to wonder why.
Here is Farrakhan's source of plaeasure:
"President-elect Obama has energized all segments of the depressed, downtrodden, rejected and despised," he said in a 90-minute speech at Mosque Maryam in Chicago. "Now it is up to us to take the new energy that he has given us ... and channel that energy into making ourselves better."
"For nine months, I kept quiet because I saw that the good words that I spoke about this beautiful young man at our Saviours' Day convention and the way they were misused," Farrakhan said of Obama. "I decided it would be better for me to just be quiet rather than be drawn into the controversy that was swirling around his pastor, Father Pfleger, and others." Farrakhan then added with a smile, "I feel freer today to say the things that are in my heart."
"All of us have been risen by his rise," Farrakhan said. "It is not for Mr. Obama to do the job for us. Now we must shoulder the responsibility to raise our people up. We have to double our effort to get our people ready for whatever opportunity can be provided for all Americans to benefit from and not look for special favors."
He thanked black leaders including the Revs. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, for laying the foundation for Obama's victory, which he called Divine.
"Because if God is involved, and He is, then it is God who has laid on this young man this horrible burden at the worst time in the history of America and the world," he said. "But it was also God that has given this young man, this tremendous capacity to handle what God has put on his shoulders."
He said Nation of Islam mosques "are committed first and foremost to the resurrection and transformation of the Black people in America and throughout the world" .
All of you who voted for "change" get ready, it's coming. I'm just not sure you are going to like it when it does....
