Farrakhan: the Man Liberals Love to Love (In Secret)
Farrakhan: the Man Liberals Love to Love (In Secret)
Two funerals took place in the last couple of days. One for a politician, and the other for a music legend. Both funerals were attended by a host of dignitaries from religious leaders and entertainers to former presidents and members of their administrations. But only one dignitary – a ubiquitous presence at many large, significant events – has been studiously hidden from view, as if his presence is an embarrassment to liberals who desire his support and his “black people cred,” but are too scared to publicly show it: Louis Farrakhan.
Former President Bill Clinton, lying, noted race-baiter Al Sharpton (looking like a bobble head doll, having lost what looks to be several hundred pounds), and “the reverend” race-baiter Jesse Jackson (who looks bloated, as if he found the fat Sharpton shed and ingested it from a trough) all showed up to pay their respects.
Farrakhan was also there, but one wouldn’t know it if one were to trust MSNBC (yeah, I know; stop laughing).
Or ABC News, which appears to have studiously cropped him out of the picture and failed to mention his name.
But, oh he was there, and now the left is vociferously virtue signaling its contempt, because they can’t possibly be seen supporting the presence of an avowed anti-Semitic hate monger, even as their pals seek out his support and endorsements.
Fact is that Farrakhan got himself a seat of honor at Aretha Franklin’s funeral. The uncomfortable (for the liberals) truth is Farrakhan and Ms. Franklin go way back to the 1970s.
In 1972, when I was minister in New York City, Temple No 7, the police attacked our mosque. Within a few hours, Aretha Franklin came to the mosque, to my office, and said that she saw the news and came as quickly as she could to stand with us and offer us her support,’ Farrakhan wrote.
This is not news, but if the liberals didn’t virtue signal their faux outrage, they wouldn’t be liberals!
This is not the first time the left has honored, supported, and sought out Farrakhan. And it’s certainly not the first time they’ve publicly denounced him after getting their anti-Jew dog whistle on.
To his credit, DC Council member Trayvon White finally got sick and tired of apologizing for his repulsive, ignorant anti-Semitic conspiracy-mongering, when he derped that the snow storms we were having in March were caused by the EEEEVIL JOOOS controlling the weather.
“Man, it just started snowing out of nowhere this morning, man. Y’all better pay attention to this climate control, man, this climate manipulation,” he says in the video, which was shot through the windshield of a car driving through downtown Washington. “And DC keep talking about, ‘We a resilient city.’ And that’s a model based off the Rothschilds controlling the climate to create natural disasters they can pay for to own the cities, man. Be careful.”
But this turnip’s apology rings hollow in light of his financial support of Farrakhan and his Nation of Islam swine, and the liberals’ outrage is pretty unconvincing, given their failure to even issue a simple censure of this fascist fuck.
Barack Obama also received an endorsement from Farrakhan and has had a pretty cozy relationship with that racist shitbag despite Farrakhan’s well documented history of bigotry. And yet the left managed to hide this cozy photo of the two taken by Photojournalist Askia Muhammad until Obama left office.
Several members of Congress and one of the chairharpies of the Women’s MarchTamika Mallory attended the Nation of Islam’s national convention in February. And yet the silence was deafening when Farrakhan’s history of racism and anti-Semitism was brought up.
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 have all attended meetings with Farrakhan while in Congress, according to photos, videos and witness accounts of the meetings reviewed by the news outlet.
Mallory refused to condemn the bigot, claiming that she’s all thoughtful-like and reflectiony. And while she opposes all forms of racism and bigotry, apparently condemning the lengthy, documented record of the leader of Nation of Islam is out of the question. He’s got too much reach and too much popularity.
And then there’s this jackass who realized that his praise of Farrakhan would cost him politically. Illinois Democrat Danny Davis told the Daily Caller in February that Farrakhan was an “outstanding human being” and that Farrakhan’s anti-Semitism did not concern him enough to disavow the extremist zealot.
But then came the condemnation and outrage, and all of a sudden Davis found his conscience – probably under Farrakhans nutsack along with his courage.
“There have been attempts to question my commitment to these principles because I did not specifically single out the views and remarks of Minister Louis Farrakhan,” Davis said Thursday evening, referring to an earlier statement in which he opposed “all forms of hatred, bigotry and separatism based on race, ethnicity, religion, gender, disability or language including specifically anti-Semitism.”
“So let me be clear: I reject, condemn and oppose Minister Farrakhan’s views and remarks regarding the Jewish people and the Jewish religion,” Davis said in his statement Thursday.
His commitment to not being a racist asshole was in question, because he specifically said Farrakhan’s racism didn’t bother him, and not because he did not specifically single out Farrakhan’s remarks. But hey… potato/potahto.
And then there’s Keith Ellison, who has been under fire recently for beating his former girlfriend. Ellison’s cozy ties with Farrakhan are also well known, and Ellison has admitted as much in 2006 when he was running for public office. Since then, Ellison has worked hard to disassociate himself from the rabid fanatical anti-Semite – at least publicly – and even told Jewish groups “I reject and condemn the anti-Semitic statements and actions of the Nation of Islam [and] Louis Farrakhan.” In secret, however, Ellison continues to tongue bathe Farrakhan’s taint.
In September 2013, however, Messrs. Ellison and Farrakhan dined together. The occasion was a visit by Iran’s newly elected President Hassan Rouhani to the United Nations. Mr. Rouhani invited Muslim leaders from around the U.S. to dinner after addressing the U.N. General Assembly. Contemporaneous news reports placed Mr. Farrakhan at the dinner. Unreported by mainstream outlets was the presence of Mr. Ellison, along with Reps. Gregory Meeks of New York and Andre Carson of Indiana. (All three are Democrats; Messrs. Ellison and Carson are Muslim.)
According to Mr. Farrakhan, the 2013 meeting was not the last time he and Mr. Ellison were together. After Mr. Ellison renewed his denunciation of Mr. Farrakhan in 2016, Mr. Farrakhan stated in an interview that Reps. Ellison and Carson had visited him in his Washington hotel suite the preceding summer.
Ooops! Not as outraged by Farrakhan’s slimy bigotry as he would like us to think, is he?
Fact is that the left LOVES Farrakhan. He has money, prestige, and power, and even though even the Southern Poverty Law Center has anointed the Nation of Islam a hate group, it acknowledges that it’s a rich and powerful organization, rebuilt by Farrakhan into nothing less than an empire.
And while Republicans are quick to condemn pigs like David Duke and other racist swine, the Democrats largely ignore Farrakhan and issue silent nods to his presence at significant Democratic events, while publicly trying to hide their associations with him.
