Democrats must be made to pay a price for coziness with Farrakhan ^ | 3/8/2018 | Thomas Lifson

The narrative that the left has created about President Trump being a racist and the GOP as the home of David Duke can be flipped on its head and used to great electoral advantage, if only Republicans will take full advantage of the opportunity presented by revelations concerning deep ties of key Democrat officials with Louis Farrakhan. Farrakhan's open and proud hatred of Jews was once again on display two weeks ago, when he delivered his "Saviours' Day" address, condemning "Satanic Jews" (again).

"Jews were responsible for all of this filth and degenerate behavior that Hollywood is putting out, turning men into women and women into men," Farrakhan said in his keynote speech.

"White folks are going down. And Satan is going down. And Farrakhan, by God's grace, has pulled a cover off of that Satanic Jew, and I'm here to say your time is up, your world is through," Farrakhan said towards the end of his speech.

The Democrats have been in bed with Farrakhan for years. Barack Obama secretly met with him in 2004, and with the aid of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), he kept that secret from the public until after his presidency was over.

Sorry Mr. Lifson. You must be living in an alternate universe to think or even posit the uber ultra left wing radical extremists be held to account for sidling up to calypso louie. We kinda hoped that jerry wright and his black liberation theology might have done in the lyin' king but alas, we were once again disappointed.

REVEALED: Three Democrats Attended Private Dinner With Iran’s President And Louis Farrakhan
dailycaller ^ | 02/09/2018 | PETER HASSON

FR Posted on 2/10/2018, 7:08:39 AM by MarvinStinson

Three Democratic congressmen attended a private dinner hosted by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in 2013, a new report reveals.

Reps. Keith Ellison of Minnesota, Andre Carson of Indiana and Gregory Meeks of New York attended the private dinner, along with Louis Farrakhan, a notorious anti-Semite who leads the black supremacist group Nation of Islam.
Iran is the number one state sponsor of terrorism, according to the United States government, which has listed the Islamic Republic as a state sponsor of terror since 1984. Rouhani was in New York for a United Nations meeting and held the dinner party just hours after speaking to the UN General Assembly.

Final Call, a Nation of Islam publication, noted the three Democrats’ attendance at the time and included photos of Ellison and Meeks at the dinner party. But aside from the Final Call article, the three Democrats’ presence at the dinner remained secret until a Wall Street Journal column revealed it on Friday. None of the three congressmen’s offices responded to The Daily Caller’s request for comment for this article.

Ellison, Meeks and Carson’s attendance at the 2013 dinner is just the latest tie between Democratic members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) and Farrakhan.
One CBC member, Illinois Rep. Danny Davis, defended Farrakhan and praised him as an “outstanding human being” in an interview with TheDC last week. Davis openly admitted to having a personal relationship with Farrakhan in the interview.

Ellison, who is also vice-chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), has previously struggled to put distance between himself and Farrakhan.
Ellison attended Farrakhan’s Million Man March in 1995 and once publicly defended Farrakhan — who has repeatedly called Jews “Satanic” — against charges of anti-Semitism.

After his ties to Farrakhan hindered his campaign for DNC chair last year, Ellison wrote an an op-ed for The Washington Post in which he portrayed his ties to Farrakhan as limited to the 1995 march. Farrakhan disputed that characterization in a video posted to Facebook and said that Ellison and Carson visited him in 2015.

The CBC held a secret meeting with Farrakhan in 2005, where then-Illinois Sen. Barack Obama took a smiling picture with the hate group leader. The existence of both the meeting and Obama’s photo with Farrakhan remained secret until last month. A Final Call photographer said he suppressed the photo for 13 years at the CBC’s request, in order to protect Obama’s political career.

Twenty-one current members of the CBC were part of the caucus at the time of the 2005 meeting. None of them were willing to denounce Farrakhan when asked by TheDC. (RELATED: After Obama-Farrakhan Photo Bombshell, New Footage Emerges Of Democrats Hugging Nation Of Islam Leader)

Farrakhan’s organization, the Nation of Islam, is so extreme that even the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center has recognized it as a hate group for its “theology of innate black superiority over whites and the deeply racist, anti-Semitic and anti-gay rhetoric of its leaders.”

Democrats must be made to pay a price for what they have done, are doing, and plan on doing to this country.

I’m not willing to visit the source. Does Mr. Lifson offer any mechanism by which he suggests the friends of Farrakhan will “pay a price”?

Right. One thing is certain: they will NOT pay a price. Now, if someone associated with Trump was cozying up to Farrakhan, there would be hell to pay.

OMG! I heard that Jared Kushner meet with the president of Meh-eek-O without the ambassador present. If that isn’t a firing squad offense, I don’t know what other traitorous act would be.

I really, really don’t like some of these assclowns.

This Lifson guy loses credibility with every recent article I read. There is zero functionality calling out Louie as a freak show. If you can’t figure that out all by yourself, I don’t know what to tell you.

Everyone knows democrats are pro Islam. That includes LF

They are paying a price. They’re losing elections that they can’t cheat their way through

Trump has a higher approval rating than any of them, including obama

Yeah, no. I mean, don’t hold your breath. Having said that, I confess I have a grudging admiration for Farrakhan. He says what he thinks and damn the torpedos. Not that there are any torpedos launched in his direction.

Speaking of the NOI, I recently read Clark Howard’s “Zebra” (1979), the only relatively reliable book ever written on the Bay Area’s grisly black-on-white murder spree back in the 70s. There’s a clever, mysterious fellow who drops by, complete with Fruit of Islam bodyguards and a chauffeur-driven Cadillac, to propagandize and encourage the “Death Angels” to continue their murders. Except for a vandyke beard (which may have been an embellishment), he bore an uncanny resemblance to Farrakhan. I did a bit of googling but was unable to learn anything further about him. It’s as if the matter of his identity has never even been considered.

You usually have secret meetings if you’re trying to hide something. We know that Obama had plenty to hide even if not all of it got properly hidden. The man needs to be brought to justice.

Boobamba kept “forgetting” (smirk) we have a democracy-——that means no secrets.
