It is telling that the protests Friday in Egypt were dubbed by the Muslim Brotherhood, a “day of rage.”And, today, the AFP reported that demonstrators in Egypt - apparently, following in Louis Farrakhan's footsteps - are calling for a "Million-man march" [on Tuesday] to mark one week since the protests began. In 1995, Louis Farrakhan organized, what was dubbed, "The Million Man March" in Washington D.C.The Brotherhood said its members will demonstrate “...so that... Friday will be the general day of rage for the Egyptian nation.”“Days of Rage” is what the Weathermen [i.e. Bill Ayer's Weather Underground organization] called their violent, riotous protests in Chicago in 1969.
Along with other prominent black leaders such as Al Sharpton and Barack Obama, Farrakhan helped lead the Million Man March on Washington. A second march, called the Millions More Movement, took place in 2005.If one were to ask President Obama why he chose to march with Mr. Farrakhan at the Million Man March, no doubt his response would be that he was merely endorsing the message [behind the march], not the messenger.
Likewise, it would behoove the President to attend the Million Man March in Egypt. While it is true that the demonstrations in Egypt are largely being fueled by the Muslim Brotherhood and by former IAEA chief, Mohamed ElBaradei - previously a facilitator of Iran's nuclear weapons program - nevertheless, President Obama, by attending the march, would be endorsing the message, not the messengers. And, while the messengers, who are organizing the march, are indeed a band of thugs, this, in no way, diminishes their message - the message of piece, brotherhood, extremism and Jihad....... Obama should attend the event.
