A new photo has emerged that may ruin former President Barack Obama.
Obama was first a Senator in Illinois, and promised to pursue “equal opportunities” for all citizens—regardless of the consequences of his actions.
And now, the bombshell photo shows just how far Obama may have gone to pursue his radical ideologies concerning minorities, and show his “support” for the Middle East.
The former President was seen posing with Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the black nationalist hate group Nation of Islam.
Then-Senator Obama was seen smiling with the radical leader, who often promotes anti-Semitic and anti-white views.
The Daily Caller reported:
Journalist Askia Muhammed said he took the photo but decided to suppress its publication in order to protect Obama’s presidential ambitions. Now that Obama’s political career is over, Muhammad is going public with the picture and publishing it in a new book called “The Autobiography of Charles 67X.”
The photo was first published last week by the Trice Edney News Wire, a “provocative, empowering, unapologetically Black” wire news service that interviewed Muhammad. The veteran journalist told the news service that he “gave the picture up at the time and basically swore secrecy” to protect Obama.
“But after the nomination was secured and all the way up until the inauguration; then for eight years after he was President, it was kept under cover,” he said, referencing keeping the photo under wraps to protect Obama’s career. “It absolutely would have made a difference.”
Muhammad is a veteran journalist who has won awards from the National Association of Black Journalists.
Obama’s ties to Farrakhan became an issue during the 2008 campaign, after Hillary Clinton slammed Obama for being slow to disavow the hate group leader’s endorsement.
“I obviously can’t censor him, but it is not support that I sought,” Obama said at the time, according to CNN. “And we’re not doing anything, I assure you, formally or informally with Minister Farrakhan.” Obama added: “I can’t say to somebody that he can’t say that he thinks I’m a good guy.”
Obama eventually denounced his support of Farrakhan—but not soon enough.
The Daily Caller continued:
Pushed by Clinton, Obama finally denounced Farrakhan, saying that “if the word ‘reject’ Senator Clinton feels is stronger than the word ‘denounce,’ then I’m happy to concede the point, and I would reject and denounce.”
The new photo shows Obama was closer to Farrakhan than he let on.
President Obama ended his presidential career with the economy in shambles, and the nation overrun with dangerous immigrants—but was his interactions with people like Farrakhan the worst thing he had done for the country?
Did Obama purposefully support a radical racist leader?
