The Left’s Farrakhan Problem

Louis Farrakhan is not someone you want to brag about knowing. Unless you are proud about being friendly with an avowed anti-Semite and all-around general bigot. And apparently, there are a couple people who are proud of it.

Women’s March co-founder Tamika Mallory attended Farrakhan’s recent speech. She then got rightly called out by the ADL for attending the speech.

Mallory got upset because she was being called out, and then went on a bizarre rant.

But it’s okay, because Tamika Mallory has Linda Sarsour defending her! Oh wait…

Oh, but you see, Tamika is FIGHTING. EVERY DAY. Just because she attends a Farrakhan speech, it doesn’t mean that she isn’t totally “woke” and “intersectional.”

Notice that nowhere in these tweets does Mallory say, “I disavow the opinions that Louis Farrakhan has about Jews or the LGBT community.” How hard would that be? Apparently, it was too hard – and it caught Jake Tapper’s attention.

At its very core, the Women’s March has a problem with anti-Semitism. The leaders are just becoming more obvious about it now.

And the Democratic party is going to have even more Farrakhan problems, and we’re not just talking about the old Obama picture that was finally released after years of hiding it in the name of protecting Obama.

It seems that Rep. Danny Davis of Illinois is not ashamed of being friends with Farrakhan.

He actually brags about it.

“I’m a pretty global individual. So I know Farrakhan, I know the Middle East question, I know the Jews and Farrakhan — I know all that, but that’s not what I spend all my time focused on,” Davis continued, breaking into a laugh. “I know Farrakhan, been knowing him for years and years and years and years and years, and every once in a while some writer or somebody will I guess try to think of something to say about Farrakhan, but nah, my world is so much bigger than any of that. I don’t have time for that. I deal with it, you know, when it comes but nah, that’s not a real part of my focus.”

“That’s just one segment of what goes on in our world. The world is so much bigger than Farrakhan and the Jewish question and his position on that and so forth. For those heavy into it, that’s their thing, but it ain’t my thing,” he said

Davis also said that he knows Farrakhan better than Democratic Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, a former Nation of Islam member who repeatedly attended meetings with Farrakhan during his time in Congress.

When TheDC asked Davis about Farrakhan’s history of anti-Semitic comments, the congressman was dismissive and said that many people in politics have a history of inflammatory comments.


That’s one way to put it.

I wonder if Davis will be allowed to walk away from the hole he just dug for himself. If a Republican had said such a thing about their personal friendship with Richard Spencer or David Duke, do you think they would be asked about it again? And again, and again, and again, and every other Republican would be asked about it, too?

Farrakhan is a horrific human being and no one should gain any advantage by claiming him as a friend or ally. Why is the left, who screams about “Nazis” and “white supremacists,” not yelling about this?
