If Maxine Waters and the Congressional Black Caucus are going to continue to accuse President Trump of being a “racist,” then they need to explain why they met and embraced Louis Farrakhan, a vicious Jew-hater who is also, as the Southern Poverty Law Center describes, racist, anti-Catholic, and anti-gay.
Via WSJ: The Dems’ Farrakhan Problem
….On Jan. 13-14, 2006, the House Financial Services Subcommittee on Housing and Community Opportunity held hearings in New Orleans and Gulfport, Miss., on the federal government’s response to Hurricane Katrina. After the New Orleans hearing, at least four CBC members headed to St. Augustine Church to meet Mr. Farrakhan, who had attended part of the hearing.
In a video posted to YouTube in 2009, Reps. Maxine Waters and Barbara Lee of California, Al Green of Texas and William Jefferson of Louisiana can been seen exchanging hugs and handshakes with Mr. Farrakhan, then talking with him about coordinating their public responses to Katrina.
After praising the representatives for their performance at the hearings, Mr. Farrakhan says: “Tell me how I can be of service.”
Ms. Waters responds: “I think we need to get together and talk about how we’re going to put New Orleans on the national agenda.”….
If Republican lawmakers were holding strategy sessions with Mr. Duke, their party would rightly be held to account. Why shouldn’t the Democrats and the Congressional Black Caucus be held to the same standard?
