Louis Farrakhan Suggests He, Father Pfleger and Jeremiah Wright were the "Rocket" that Launched Obama to the Presidency - Video 5/9/10
Here is video of radical Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan in an interview yesterday where he suggested that he, along with other radicals Father Pfleger and Jeremiah Wright were the "rocket" that launched Barack Obama to the Presidency and have now "fallen back to earth."
Farrakhan used the Space Shuttle as a metaphor for how he and others were part of a group that chose Obama for the Presidency - "He was selected before he was elected." He then likened this group to the powerful rocket that launches the Space Shuttle and then falls away leaving everyone to fix their gaze on the Shuttle alone.
Farrakhan said Obama was a "victim" in being "forced to denounce" Farrakhan during the 2008 Campaign, suggesting that Obama did not really feel that way.
"So don't get bent out of shape because you feel dissed."
