There are at least seven House democrats who have direct ties to the infamous Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. Farrakhan is a KNOWN anti-Semite who has said some rather disgusting things about the Jewish people.
The representatives thus far: California Reps. Maxine Waters and Barbara Lee, Illinois Rep. Danny Davis, Indiana Rep. Andre Carson, Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, New York Rep. Gregory Meeks and Texas Rep. Al Green.
They’ve all attended meetings at one time or another with Farrakhan — all while in Congress.
Some of the notorious details are laid out for you below but there’s much more to the story. This should concern all American citizens young and old – right and left.
As reported by The Daily Caller:
Ellison, the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), repeatedly attended meetings with Farrakhan while in Congress, according to photos and videos reviewed by TheDCNF and Farrakhan’s own statements.
Ellison is a former Nation of Islam member and once defended Farrakhan against claims of anti-Semitism but claimed in 2006 when he ran for Congress that he had left Farrakhan in his past. The meetings Ellison has since attended with Farrakhan undercut his claims of cutting ties.
Carson and Meeks joined Ellison in attending a 2013 dinner with Farrakhan and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. Carson and Ellison also visited Farrakhan in a hotel room in recent years, according to Farrakhan, who said in a December 2016 video that he was baffled Ellison had denounced him that month while running for DNC chair. Ellison and Carson had both visited Farrakhan during a recent trip to Washington, Farrakhan said.
Waters attended a Nation of Islam convention in 2002, where Farrakhan railed against Jews and defended Palestinian suicide bombers, The Daily Caller revealed in February. Farrakhan praised Waters during his speech, to applause from the audience of Nation of Islam members.
