American Jews: Do You Support Farrakhan Democrats?

I know most Democrat supporters have probably unfollowed me long ago but I really am curious to know how any Jews in America still think the Democrat party is in any way worthy of their support?

I’m also deeply curious as to how you feel about the bulk of the media deliberately lying to you about the connections of many in the Dem Party right up to and including Obama himself, with Louis Farrakhan. It is impossible to regard his views on Jews with anything but the same contempt you hold the views of David Duke and his ardent followers.

Please, someone, tell me how you feel. The point is this isn’t one off behaviour. The entire Congressional Black Caucus of the Democrat Party have no trouble dining and even defending this man. We’ve already seen Dershowitz completely admit that he wouldn’t have voted for Obama (let alone campaigned for him) if he’d known about the picture of Obama and Farrakhan. How do the rest of you feel? Now this from the Daily Caller throws in a new element of collusion with the Iranians! You know, the ones probing Israel’s aid defences this weekend and more than likely responsible for shooting down one of our F16I’s. 

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.

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. (RELATED: Black Caucus Members Refuse To Denounce Hate Group Leader Louis 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.

Right now the current darling of the far-left, progressive Democrats, Linda Sarsour, is attacking the Opinion editor of the New York Times, Bari Weiss. Her crime, if you are part of the identity politics Mafia of the far-left is being someone who “smeared anyone who was a critic of Israel”. Here’s a Glen Greenwald tweet Linda RT’d this morning (the story is from April last year but Linda’s bringing it back):

And here’s her own tweet piling on the attack against Bari Weiss.

Do you want to know why they’re attacking Bari Weiss? A Tweet about a woman winning a medal at the Winter Olympics. She said “Immigrants they get the job done”.

[Note: Christina Sommers is dishing out a nice smackdown of this far-left identity politics nonsense in the third tweet above. I had to include it just for personal sanity to show the world isn’t entirely insane.]

But please, remind us again about the far-right antisemitism we need to be so concerned about from Trump following his recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and his accelerated move of the US Embassy to Jerusalem.
