There has been a shocking amount of Democratic congressmen defending radical Muslim extremist and anti-semite Louis Farrakhan. Farrakhan, who is the head of the Nation of Islam, has regularly attacked Jews, and white people. He has even called Hitler a great man. But liberals can’t get enough of him.
Indiana Democratic Rep. Andre Carson defended his support of Farrakhan and attacked a group of Jews who wants him fired. “That organization doesn’t have any credibility with me. I know they have a political agenda,” explained Carson of Republican Jewish Coalition.
“The Congressional Black Caucus is asking that organization to condemn Benjamin Netanyahu and the government for discriminating against Africans who are migrating, who are fleeing dictatorships, who are fleeing oppression. There’s a great deal of bigotry and racism happening right now that they failed to condemn,” said Carson, as if the Black Caucus doesn’t have a political agenda.
He’s not the only one. Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison attacked the media for reporting on his meetings with Farrakhan, claiming that ‘no one cares’.
“None of my colleagues ever asked me about that, only reporters. I am telling you, no one cares. I’ve been all over Minnesota, all over Alabama, all over Missouri, all over Pennsylvania and Connecticut, and nobody ever asked me about this. People ask me about wages, about pay, about health care, about guns, about immigration. They ask me all kinds of challenging questions. But for some reason, some folks in the Fourth Estate think that this Farrakhan thing needs to be inquired about instead,” said Ellison.
