michelle and farrakhan 3.jpgRead my 1st post on this here. HillBuzz is reporting this morning:

Here’s what’s known so far:
The Michelle Obama Rant Tape was filmed between June 26th – July 1st 2004 in Chicago, IL at the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition Conference at Trinity United Church: specifically the Women’s Event.
Michelle Obama appeared as a panelist alongside Mrs. Khadijah Farrakhan and Mrs. James Meeks….

Bill Clinton spoke during the Conference, as did Bill Cosby and other speakers, but not at the panel Michelle attended.
Michelle Obama spoke at the Women’s Event, but referenced Bill Clinton in her rant – his presence at the conference was the impetus for her raving, it seems.

For about 30 minutes, Michelle Obama launched into a rant about the evils of America, and how America is to blame for the problems of Africa. Michelle personally blamed President Clinton for the deaths of millions of Africans and said America is responsible for the genocide of the Tutsis and other ethnic groups. She then launched into an attack on “whitey”, and talked about solutions to black on black crime in the realm of diverting those actions onto white America. Her rant was fueled by the crowd: they reacted strongly to what she said, so she got more passionate and enraged, and that’s when she completely loses it and says things that have made the mouths drop of everyone who’s seen this.
The “tape” is a DVD that Trinity United sold on its website, and possibly offered free for download up until March 2008 when Trinity’s site was scrubbed and the DVDs were no longer offered for sale.
This outburst happened just one month before the 2004 Democratic Convention, when Barack Obama delivered the keynote address.

A pretty detailed description. Still can’t believe, though, that some news outlet somewhere hasn’t gotten its hands on the tape and shown it. That would be a stratospheric scoop.
Larry Johnson has found a photo taken at that Rainbow/Push conference, from the July 26, 2004, edition of Jet magazine:

I don’t think famous people can under normal circumstances be condemned for having pictures taken with unsavory characters, but there you go, more corroboration: Michelle Obama and Farrakhan’s wife together at the supposed “whitey rant” event.
Also of interest in the photo is Rev. Willie Barrow. Her name first entered our sphere when it appeared on Michelle Obama’s infamous partial birth abortion fundraising letter as an advertised luncheon speaker. According to Duh Daily Scoop yesterday:

Rev. Willie Barrow, a member of the Obama campaign’s official Faith Outreach Team and a pledged Obama superdelegate, is a close friend of Farrakhan’s and a staunch Nation of Islam supporter.
Farrakhan stated in a 2002 interview he met with Barrow to devise his Nation of Islam platforms.
In 2006, Barrow condemned four Jewish members of the Illinois state Hate Crimes Commission after [Gov.] Blagojevich refused to remove from the commission Sister Claudette Muhammad, Farrakhan’s minister of protocol.

Sultan of Knish has much more on Barrow, including the fact she’s done fundraising for the United States Communist Party
Also of interest in that photo is Jamell Meeks, wife of Rev. and state Sen. James Meeks. Meeks is a powerful south side pastor, and when he ran for the state senate and won, we had hopes he would temper the radical liberalism there. He has been a disappointment.
I personally was part of a group that lobbied Meeks to oppose funding of human embryo experimentation, but he speculated to us that God may have allowed those embryos to be created to save the lives of others through research. I was shocked that this man of God could conclude such a thing.
At any rate, Meeks is cut from the same extreme racist cloth as Wright and Phleger. Following is a newscast with snips from a July 5, 2006, sermon by Meeks when he called white Chicago Mayor Richard Daley and white IL Gov. Rod Blagojevich “slavemasters,” and blacks who aligned with them “house [N-words]”:

Back to the whitey rant video, Michelle Malkin thinks it’s locked in Capone’s vault.
