Here is CNN's idea of an "intriguing"person. Race-baiter, militant Muslim and poisonous Jew-hater Louis Farrakhan is warning us of riots and violence here: "you’d better prepare because it will be coming to your door.” And CNN finds this intriguing and oh so chi chi.
Imagine if I said such a thing, or any Republican or tea party activist said such a thing. We would be hanged in effigy. Where is the moral outrage, the condemnation? **Crickets chirping near exhaustion in newsrooms nationwide.**
Monday's intriguing people CNN
The leader of the Nation of Islam predicts that uprisings like those in the Middle East will happen in the United States, according to the Chicago Tribune. He is calling on President Obama not to attack the protesters when they revolt. During an address Sunday, Farrakhan told his followers: “What you are looking at in Tunisia, in Egypt … Libya, in Bahrain … what you see happening there … you’d better prepare because it will be coming to your door.”
UPDATE: And what did CNN choose to omit from Farrakhan's speech:
Louis Farrakhan says Moammar Gadhafi has always been a friend Chicago Sun Times
Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan says Moammar Gadhafi has always been a friend and he won’t distance himself from the Libyan dictator.
Speaking Sunday at the annual Saviours’ Day convention at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Farrakhan didn’t discuss specifics about the deadly uprisings in Libya.
But the 77-year-old said no leader has been loved by 100 percent of his people and said that if Gadhafi is persecuted for crimes against humanity, the same should apply to former President George W. Bush for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Farrakhan visited Gadhafi in the 1980s and in 1996 accepted a humanitarian award from him. But during his speech Sunday he warned the wave of revolution spreading across the Middle East is coming to the United States.
Speaking to followers who all but filled the 18,000-seat venue, he said, “What you are looking at in Tunisia, in Egypt, in Yemen, in Jordan, in Libya, in Bahrain will soon, very soon be in all the nations of the world . . . and even sooner take place in America.
