Louis Farrakhan Organization Received $103K in Farm Subsidies!

By now Americans should be well aware of the President’s fondness for people and groups aligned with the Muslim Brotherhood.

Indeed, Obama’s appreciation of all things Islam does not stop there. Thanks to Adam Andrzejewski‘s watch dog organization, Open the Books, we discover that Louis Farrakhan, rabid Nation of Islam leader, has a little pet project, Muhammad Farms, which received $103,529 in aid between 2008 and 2011.

Hmmm. Farm subsidies in urban Chicago. That’s novel.

To be fair, the group did receive $26,357 under the Bush administration.

Andrzejewski writes in the Muhammad Farms report:

farrakahnWithin the geographic borders of the City of Chicago, 930 entities received an aggregated total of $6.129 million in federal government farm subsidy payments.

Federal farm subsidy program dollars are flowing into the “urban areas”- where there are no farms. The recipients include grain traders and members of the Chicago Board of Trade, wealthy second generation inheritors, and non-profit organizations such as the Mallard Habitat Foundation and a charity of The Nation of Islam. Many entities receive the federal subsidies at their downtown loop office buildings or residential mansions.

Nearly every neighborhood in the city receives federal farm subsidy payments- including the Gold Coast, Downtown-Loop, Lincoln Park, and even the President’s neighbors in Hyde Park.

And further down in the report:

In Chicago, the 12th highest farm subsidy recipient is Three Years Economic Savings, Inc- a charity addressed at the home of Minister Louis Farrakhan, leader of The Nation of Islam. The entity also received a “commodity loan” for an additional $26,357 under the George W. Bush administration.
