    Somewhat disturbing... but freedom of speech means people get to say some truly offensive things.

    Warning that destruction could be on America's doorstep because it oppresses “God's chosen people,” Minister Louis Farrakhan, the controversial Nation of Islam leader, defended Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi today, calling the U.S. action in Libya hypocrisy.

    Speaking from the pulpit of Chicago's Mosque Maryam, the Nation of Islam's international headquarters, purchased 40 years ago with a $3 million loan from Gadhafi, Farrakhan blamed demons for altering President Barack Obama's moral conscience and driving the assault on Gadhafi, who he calls a brother.

    “It is a terrible thing for me to hear my brother called all these ugly and filthy names when I can't recognize him as that,” Farrakhan said to the crowd assembled at the mosque on Chicago's South Side. “Even though the current tide is moving against him … how can I refuse to raise my voice in his defense? Why would I back down from those who have given so much?”

    skykey saidFarrakhan has supported Gadhafi for years. And considering that the Farrakhan's orgization has recieved donations from Gadhafi, it's not very surprising.

    Who are you to criticize other people's form of government? Also what right does America or any other country to oust any man from power from other countries?





    Well, the classic example is Hitler and the Nazis.
