Journalist Suppressed 2005 Photo Of Obama Smiling With Black Nationalist Hate Group Leader
If this was a photo of President Trump with David Duke the Left would be apoplectic, demanding his immediate resignation. But this photo? Well, they’ll just dismiss it as much ado about nothing.
A new photo has emerged that shows former President Barack Obama posing with Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the black nationalist hate group Nation of Islam.
The photo shows then Democratic Illinois Sen. Barack Obama smiling with Farrakhan at a Congressional Black Caucus meeting in 2005. Farrakhan is known for embracing radically anti-Semitic and anti-white views, as even the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center has acknowledged.

Journalist Askia Muhammed said he took the photo but decided to suppress its publication in order to protect Obama’s presidential ambitions. Now that Obama’s political career is over, Muhammad is going public with the picture and publishing it in a new book called “The Autobiography of Charles 67X.”
The photo was first published last week by the Trice Edney News Wire, a “provocative, empowering, unapologetically Black” wire news service that interviewed Muhammad. The veteran journalist told the news service that he “gave the picture up at the time and basically swore secrecy” to protect Obama. Read more at TDC.
I think the point is: Imagine if a Republican did this. Media bias.

And journalists wonder why they are not trusted.

I see many liberals in the replies saying “what’s the point?”. The point is that there were brazen attempts to cover this association up back when he was running. If an R was running that had an incriminating photo I’m sure it would not stay hidden at all. Hypocrites
