The Photo That Never Saw The Light of Day: Obama With Farrakhan In 2005

A journalist announced last week that he will publish a photograph of then-Illinois Sen. Barack Obama (D) and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan that he took in 2005 at a Congressional Black Caucus meeting, but did not make public because he believed it would have “made a difference” to Obama’s political future.

The photographer, Askia Muhammad, told the Trice Edney News Wire that he “gave the picture up at the time and basically swore secrecy.”

“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,” Muhammad said.

Asked whether he thought the photo’s release would have affected Obama’s presidential campaign, Muhammad said, “I insist. It absolutely would have made a difference.”

You can google search based on year and see that even if this particular photo wasn’t out there, others were and he story was being reported on. Also. So what?

Is this the thread where we post really really dumb stories? Allow me to retort.

http://www.breitbart.com/london/2018/01/25/germany-mohammed-name-rapidly-rising-popularity/

In the city of Herne, around 17.2 per cent of the 161,306 inhabitants were migrants in 2017 – up from 16.4 per cent in 2016. That year, Mohammed was the third most popular name in the city.

Andrea Ewels, Managing Director of GfdS, said: “The development is, of course, related to the wave of immigration,” and added that she expected Mohammed to be in the top 10 names by 2021 or 2022.

Not sure of the point of this thread. I remember stories about Obama and Farrakhan. That particular photo is from 2005. If I read things correctly, it got buried by a guy working at the time for the Nation of Islam newspaper at the request of the CBC. That’s not exactly MSM. I guarantee any standard news outlet would’ve published that photo once BHO announced his candidacy. Besides, the Right sure had fun with Obama’s minister, taking quotes from sermons out of context. Bottom line is those on the Right who didn’t vote for BHO were never going to vote for him. Farrakhan photo or not, racists only wanted to see an angry black man trying to put the screws to whitey. Tbe reality is far different: The only radical to occupy the WH in the past nine years is the angry white
Man currently holding office there.

More to the point: Goose, what truthful thing about Trump do you think the MSM should’ve withheld since Donnie began running for office?

Not a bad site. Better than most of what Goose uses for gathering his “news”.
I was expecting something much closer to this:

yeah, but I suspect he pays people quite well to sneak the girls in through an employee entrance.

If only Obama had 5 kids by three different women and paid for sex from a porn star right after his third wife gave birth to his fifth kid. Then we could see how the media would have treated Obama.

Or someone could start a rumor that the guy with two kids, both of whom never get in trouble, by the same women who he's still married to and have a good marriage, wasn't born in Hawaii.....

Okay, this is partially an "absence makes the heart grow fonder" situation. I didn't vote for Obama either time, and I didn't have any particular love for the guy or his foreign policy. But god damn if he's not 100 times the human being that Trump is. I just finished watching the first episode of David Letterman's "My Next Guest Needs No Introduction" on Netflix where he has Obama on. The press should treat Trump worse than they treated Obama, because Trump is worse than Obama. Trump is worse than pretty much everyone.

I don't see the value in false equivalences. Trump is a fucking piece of shit. Whose interest is served by engaging in the pretense that Trump and Obama are in any way equals? Certainly not the American people's.

So, basically, this thread is utter trash. Fuck Trump, fuck Trump apologism (yeah, I just made up a word, I'm like drunk Shakespeare up in this bitch). I miss Barack, and I didn't even really like him that much. This is the absolute nadir of the presidency, and I don't see why the press ought to obscure that fact.

Goose is never open to honest debate. It really is pretty sad. He'd rather just drop a couple of links that he believes to be the truth, maybe yell at a few people and call them hypocrites, and then leave. I wish we had a few conservative voices that is open to having honest discussions.

I dunno man, its kind of exhausting debating 10 people all at once with no one on your side, and that's inevitably what Goose runs into here. I wouldn't do much better in his shoes, I don't imagine.
