Farrakhan to Obama on WVON Chicago: “You can’t order (Gaddafi) to step down and get out. Who the hell do you think you are?”


Louis Farrakhan with radio host Cliff Kelley on WVON-AM 1690 Chicago.

Cliff Kelley asks Rev. Louis Farrakhan: “You told the president, you said be prepared because they will be coming to your door America, and your advice to Obama was to remember the words you are making to other nations.”

Well today our dear brother has to be very careful in his decision that he and his Secretary of State, and Sarkozy, and Prime Minister Cameron are planning. They would love to go in to Libya and kill Brother Gaddafi and kill his children as they did with Saddam Hussein, his sons Qusay and Uday.

You must remember dear people of America that whenever government wants you to think and act in a certain way that would bring justification to an action that they are already planning to make, they must the person that they hate, a boogeyman.

— Louis Farrakhan

Minister Farrakhan blasted President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for” their arrogance” in meddling in another sovereign nation’s affairs and publicly recommending regime change. Farrakhan then instructed Americans to look beneath the surface to see who stands to benefit from the unrest and warned President Obama to be careful of the words coming from advisors lobbying him to move in with military forces to depose Libya leader, Colonel Gadhafi.

Farrakhan explained that the U.S. government has a long history of deposing leaders of other nations in order to get natural resources, more specifically-oil, he continued, adding that the imperialistic forces are not really interested in saving rebels being killed. He says it is just a “noble motive to hide your (the U.S. government’s) wicked agenda!”

“I warn my brother do you let these wicked demons move you in a direction that will absolutely ruin your future with your people in Africa and throughout the world…Why don’t you organize a group of respected Americans and ask for a meeting with Qaddafi, you can’t order him to step down and get out, who the hell do you think you are? That you can talk to a man that built a country over 42 years and ask him step down and get out. Can anybody ask you? Well there’s a lot now gonna ask you to step out of the White House ’cause they don’t want no black face in the White House. Be careful brother, how you handle this situation because it is coming to America. It has already started.

Look in Wisconsin. Look in Ohio. The American people are rising against their own government. Look what is going on in your country and remember your words because the American people are rising against their own government. It’s not Muslims. It’s not black people. It’s white militia that are angry with their government. And they are well armed. Are you gonna tell them, ‘put your arms down?’ And let’s talk it over peacefully. I hope so. If not America will be bathed in blood, not because Louis Farrakhan said so, but because the dissatisfaction in America has reached the boiling point. Be careful how you manipulate the dissatisfaction in Libya and other parts of the Muslim world.”
