Someone raised the issue of who Phil Valentine is at http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/aug2014/boba824-1.htm . Phil Valentine is a conservative talk show host in the Nashville area. I have not yet watched his video on Obama and Malcolm X at the above link, so I can't comment on it yet. He is not a cult leader. He is very politically biased in support of the GOP and against Democrats, much like Rush Limbaugh, or some of the other people in a similar venue. For the most part, he is a politician or perhaps more correctly, a politicaly commentator, not a religous figure. Just thought I'd post that for those of you wondering who he was.
