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."
2. Rev. Al Sharpton.
