Donald Trump Jr. says Democrats will never disavow Louis Farrakhan. Why should they? Prominent Democrats Barack Obama and Keith Ellison both participated in his Million Man March. Obama met with him as a Senator; both Obama and Farrakhan would come to be known for their pro-Iran viewpoints. These days, Farrakhan’s hatred of Caucasians is mainstream in the Democrat Party, although his characterization of Jews as termites undermines recent media attempts to associate Republicans with anti-Semitism.
Speaking of which, the Republican Jewish Coalition has demanded the resignation of seven Democrat congresscritters over their links to Farrakhan: Keith Ellison (D-MN), Barbara Lee (D-CA), Maxine Waters (D-CA), Danny Davis (D-IL), Andre Carson (D-IN), Gregory Meeks (D-NY) and Al Green (D-TX). By a remarkable coincidence, all are persons of politically preferred pigmentation. Could this be proof at last that Republicans are racist?
In light of his recent antics in Iran, Farrakhan’s esteem among Democrats is secure:
Farrakhan is leading a group of Nation of Islam members on a tour of Iran as the Islamic Republic celebrates the anniversary of the seizure of the US Embassy in Tehran during the 1979 Islamic Revolution, just days before the Trump administration reimposes sanctions on Iran’s key oil sector.
Thousands of students in the government-organized rally in the capital Tehran, broadcast live by state television, burned the Stars and Stripes, an effigy of Uncle Sam and pictures of Trump, outside the leafy downtown compound that once housed the US mission.
The media will, of course ignore this. And the left will embrace it!
