Black Lives Matter (BLM) held a march on Monday to protest a call to renounce anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan for his continued racist speeches. The rally is also an attempt to condemn President Donald Trump for his racist remarks. In a press release, the group calls out Trump and the GOP:
Black Lawyers for Justice National President Malik Zulu Shabazz says, “We cannot allow a politically hypocritical political situation to exist whereas an openly racist president, Donald Trump is given a free pass and to spew racist venom and racist policies by a confederate based GOP; and then they have the gall to issue an official legislative condemnation of a private citizen and Black leader who is dearly beloved by the masses.”
The coalition will be lobbying key members of Congress-the GOP in particular-to condemn President Donald J. Trump and to leave Louis Farrakhan alone. Please do not try to stop us because we will not turn back. We will represent professionally and politically vigorously.
Congressman Todd Rokita (R-IN) submitted a resolution requesting the House of Representatives to condemn Farrakhan for his comments against the Jewish people and religion. Farrakhan has also been attacking whites, and recently said: “White folks are going down. And Satan is going down. And Farrakhan, by God’s grace, has pulled the cover off of that Satanic Jew and I’m here to say your time is up, your world is through.”
Farrakhan’s hate spewing, racists views have been poisoning minds for decades. The Southern Poverty Law Center has acknowledged his racism and lists several examples of speeches over the years. In 1984, he even compared himself favorably to Hitler, of all people, saying: “The Jews don’t like Farrakhan, so they call me Hitler. Well, that’s a good name. Hitler was a very great man.”
Obama, other Dems Linked to Farrakhan
Trump can be called many things, including racist on occasion. He’s not the best at being tactful and can (and has) many times made remarks that have offended others. However, to say his comments are in any way the same or worse than Farrakhan’s is insane. One would think in today’s world, our politicians would not associate with such radical hate-filled racism, but many Democrats, including former president Barak Obama, have done exactly that.
In 2005, during a Congressional Black Caucus meeting, journalist Askia Muhammad took a photograph of Obama smiling with Farrakhan. So, why haven’t we seen this image until now? North Star News Today said Obama supporters immediately realized the danger of releasing the image of then Senator Obama:
Muhammad and others almost immediately realized that the public release of this photo could mean major trouble down the road. Mainly because of bigotry and fear-mongering, the public release of that photo could doom America’s chances of electing Obama as its first Black President.
“I gave the picture up at the time and basically swore secrecy,” Muhammad said in an exclusive interview with the Trice Edney News Wire. “But after the nomination was secured and all the way up until the inauguration; then for eight years after he was President, it was kept under cover.”
According to Fox News, the Republican Jewish Coalition called on seven Congressional Black Caucus members to resign amid their support for Farrakhan including Democratic National Committee Deputy Chair Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn), Reps. Maxine Waters (D-CA), Danny Davis (D-IL), Al Green (D-TX), Barbara Lee (D-CA), Andre Carson (D-IN), and Gregory Meeks (D-NY).
Davis was the most vocal in his support of Farrakhan saying: “I don’t regard Louis Farrakhan as an aberration or anything, I regard him as an outstanding human being who commands a following of individuals who are learned and articulate and he plays a big role in the lives of thousands and thousands and thousands and thousands of people.”
Anyone else see the hypocrisy of the left? This “outstanding human” who spouts off that whites should die and blames the Jewish people for everything from corrupting our government to being responsible for slavery, is influencing our lawmakers.
