Liberal Hero?[edit]

I've been seeing this image going around, and conservative blogs are filled up with discussions on this. I had never heard of the guy until that image surfaced, and I tend to consider myself more liberal than conservative. However, conservatives seem to know exactly who he is and what this image is referring to. I can't find any sources that aren't just conservative blogs (there are many people in comments sections that are told to "Google it" who respond with "Google leads back here."), and the last edit on this wiki page seems to be in February, so nothing current there.

It seems Obama himself never called Louis Farrakhan a hero. Rather, he endorsed a professor who once did.
Ha! Conservatives,hoist by your own petard. And frankly, few liberals will give Louis Farrakhan much credit.--"Shut up, Brx." 16:07, 26 December 2013 (UTC)
Also, Wikipedia has an extensive article on the man. I'm surprised Google didn't send you there first.--"Shut up, Brx." 16:09, 26 December 2013 (UTC)
It did send me there first. I couldn't find any useful information on the subject. All I could gather was that he was some kind of extremist with views that would seem counter-intuitive for a liberal to support. (talk) 23:32, 1 January 2014 (UTC)
