Contradictions continue to evolve.

The Root reports on Farrakhan calling Obama a “murderer”.

VIDEO: Minister Farrakhan: “That’s a Murderer in the White House”

A YouTube video of Minister Louis Farrakhan taking President Obama to task over the war in Afghanistan and the bombing of Libya is making its way around the web. In the video, Farrakhan admonishes the president for turning into someone else. Farrakhan says, “We voted for our brother Barack, a beautiful human being with a sweet heart and now he’s an assassin. They turned him into them.”

We find it interesting that this video from May is surfacing just as Minister Farrakhan is set to address the United Nations. Nonetheless, the words used to describe the president are brutal. He raises important points like questioning why we’re still at war in Iraq and Afghanistan if the intelligence proved false and how a peacemaking mission to Libya turned into bombing mission. We’ve examined how black leaders romanticize dictators like Quaddafi and this is a major example of it. Perhaps Minister Farrakhan should consider the fact that he’s offering support to his brothers in the Middle East and North Africa while tearing down his brother in the White House? If there’s a murderer in the White House, then what do you call Quaddafi?
