Guest Column: Andre' X a/k/a Andre' Carson

Andre’ X a/k/a Andre’ Carson

By Callum Dalgliesh

According to former IndyStar reporter, Ruth Holladay, in her blog, Andre’ Carson “…was influenced, as a teen-ager, by the biography of Malcom X, and by NOI (Nation of Islam) members and an offshoot group, the Five Percent Nation or the Five Percenters.”  Louis Farrakhan (born Louis Eugene Wolcot) is the leader of the Nation of Islam and that controversial Muslim that endorsed Andre’ and preached at the funeral of Andre’s grandmother, Congresswomen, Julia Carson. 

The said about Andre’s conversion to Islam that, “he (Andre Carson) asked for spiritual guidance from Iman Muhammad Siddeeq who also counseled Mike Tyson.  Siddeq is a former assistant to Louis Farrakhan.”

Accordingly, it was not surprising to learn from an Indiana Muslim reporter that “Andre’ X” is the Muslim name adopted by Andre’ Carson.  It appears to be in recognition of his reverence for the work of Malcom X. 

But, you won’t see Andre’ X on any election ballot. 

The majority of the campaign money funding Andre’ Carson’s run for Congress is from the Muslim and controversial sources.  When Congressman Carson ran against Democrat David Orentlicher in the 2008 primary, the following YouTube video discussing that issue was posted.  While Orentlicher denied authorizing this YouTube broadcast; he did not either condemn it or urge its posting to be pulled down from YouTube.  It remains today. 

The controversial Andre’ X’s (born Andre’ Carson) political contributions continue to be from out-of-state and suspicious sources.  Some say that many of his contributors are tied to Muslim extremists and some on the Homeland Security’s No Fly List.  More on this important subject at a later date.

Wow... Some say many of his donations come from people on the no fly list... I hope the more to come later on this is from a somewhat credible source... I can make claims too... Some say Romney is a unicorn! GOOGLE it! You can disagree with the guys politics, and maybe disagree with the people he likes and looked up to... But please use FACTS... Otherwise you loose all credibility.
