6 Liberal Democrats Photographed With Anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan

On Saturday, an anti-Semitic gunman killed 11 and wounded one at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pa. Americans should unite in condemning anti-Semitism, but many prominent Democrats have defended, teamed up with, and been photographed with one of the most virulent anti-Semites in modern history.

The Federalist's Sean Davis argued that mainstream media outlets "have suddenly characterized all criticism of George Soros as 'anti-Semitism,'" when it is not, because "they're desperate to avoid discussing the fact that Democrats have actively encouraged the most vile out-and-proud anti-Semites for years."

Here are five photos of prominent Democrats with Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam — a man who recently compared Jews to termites.

1. Keith Ellison.

To his credit, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), the deputy chairman of the Democratic Party and the Democratic candidate for Minnesota attorney general, disavowed Farrakhan in a debate this month. However, in doing so, he falsely claimed that he had not supported Farrakhan since the 1990s, a claim the Washington Post's fact-checker gave "four Pinocchios."

As the Daily Caller's Peter Hasson reported, Ellison was photographed at an event with Farrakhan dating from 2010. Footage of that event is still available on YouTube.

2. Rev. Al Sharpton.
