“You can’t count on our vote if this is what you’re gonna do!”

Thank you, Minister. My name is Donald Winkfield; I’m with the Black Star News.

You already have given Obama to not to go into Libya, and they went in anyway. What should the African people be doing today, right now, to stand up in the streets to stop this White House; to “cease and desist” from going any further attacks into Libya?

Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan: Thank you. Since we’re coming up on a new election season, and my sister is organizing a huge rally in Harlem… See, we have to “stir” African people; and they have to know what is going on that is damaging to African interest!

And if we rise as a people, particularly in an election season! And let our Brother know: “You can’t count on our vote if this is what you’re gonna do! We put you in power to be a good man! And you have allowed these Satanic Minds to hook you in!”–so the Book of Revelation said he’s like a “frog in the mouth of a dragon.”

You hear the frog, “beep-beep, beep-beep,” but it ain’t the Frog–it’s The Dragon talking through The Frog! He’s not in power! He acts in power, but the powers are behind him, and you ought to know it! Any Black man that stands up for White concerns is backed by powers that you don’t see–but he feels it! And that’s why he acts and reacts the way he does.

You better wake up, Black people, and not be deceived by the fact a Black man is in the White House. It’s great that he’s there, if what he does there helps us all. Now, he’s done something for Gays; he’s done something for Unions; he’s done something this one, something for that one… Let’s see what he does for Black people and for Africa. Not sending Hillary Clinton to Addis Ababa to tell Africans what to do!
