This is the touchy, paranoid, conspiracy theory style so manifested by Obama's pastor for nearly 20 years, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who accompanied Farrakhan on a trip to hang out with Libya's Muammar Gaddafi at a time when that country was a state sponsor of terror.
All this is to say that Hyde Park is a small place. But remember as well, Barack Obama started his political career in the living room of the unrepentant domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, hand-picked to succeed state Sen. Alice Palmer, so committed to the dictatorship of the proletariat that she attended a communist party convention in Moscow, and joined the church of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, a virulent anti-Semite along with the Nation of Islam, a conspiracy theorist, and probably the most prominent anti-American minister in America.
Hyde Park is probably the most radical neighborhood in Chicago. And Barack Obama chose to settle there, and call it home.

At that point, the Secret Service was badly outnumbered by the Fruit of Islam, who apparently believed that some sort of “security breach” had occurred. Were Farrakhan’s men armed? Were there more on the way? The Secret Service agent called for backup. From Calmes:
9:20 local time and our agent got reinforcements from three Secret Service agents. One shook hands with one of the 22 Fruit members we now can count from the van. After a short discussion the three Secret Service agents walked away again.
No word on when we get to leave. We’re guessing POTUS is watching the Blackhawks game at the Nesbitts’ home.
