Louis Farrakhan’s newspaper defends poor Michelle Obama

Chivalry, the Nation of Islam way.

In the same edition of Final Call, there’s a gushing editorial praising Mr. O:

Sen. Barack Obama has already made history by winning enough pledged delegates and commitments from super delegates to capture the Democratic Party nomination and enjoys the possibility of becoming the first Black man to serve as president of the United States.

His success engenders a sense of pride among Blacks in America and excitement throughout the world as a nation that touts itself as a great democracy provides another sign of progress. In a country where Africans were once enslaved and their children denied the right to vote, the son of an African father may soon be elected leader of the free world.

Mr. Obama has exhibited a demeanor and espoused a message that has appealed to millions of Americans and been applauded around the globe as people hunger for change and an end to the arrogance and warmongering of President George W. Bush.

The United States needs to change, needs a new day in politics and a departure from the politics of personal destruction, partisanship and roughshod imperialism. The country faces serious economic, social and spiritual challenges and visionary leadership is required to guide America through these troubled times. As the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan noted, it is not enough to solely cling to “experience” as the saving grace of this nation because America faces times she has never faced before.

The next American president, whoever that may be, should be a person of vision and courage.

In the Bible and the Holy Qur’an, pharaoh had troubling dreams and called on Joseph to interpret his visions and provide sound advice about how to conduct the affairs of the nation. Americans are worried about where the country is headed and wonder if the good days are long gone. Americans are so worried that, like pharaoh, many are willing to look in unlikely places for solutions to problems.

Missing from Farrakhan’s rag? Any mention about the Obama camp’s barring of those two, hijab-wearing Muslim Obama supporters. Debbie Schlussel has background on the aggrieved women.
