The hypocrisy and double-standard of the Democrats and the MSM are mind-boggling. Louis Farrakhan is a vicious racist and anti-Semitic hate-monger. Can you imagine the firestorm if President Trump and GOP lawmakers were discovered to have had private meetings and dinners with the head of the KKK?
Via The Hill.
The Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) on Tuesday called on seven prominent lawmakers to resign, accusing them of having close ties to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who drew criticism recently after a speech full of anti-Semitic remarks.
The lobbying group called on Reps. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), Danny Davis (D-Ill.), Andre Carson (D-Ind.) Gregory Meeks (D-N.Y.) and Al Green (D-Texas) to step down.
“Anti-Semitism is unacceptable. Farrakhan is the moral equivalent of a leader of the KKK. If it was discovered that members of Congress had met with the leader of the KKK, they would need to resign. In this case, for meeting with, and embracing, Louis Farrakhan, nothing short of resignation is acceptable from these seven Democrats,” the group said in a statement on Tuesday….
Davis, in an interview with The Daily Caller on Sunday, acknowledged his relationship with Farrakhan and said “the world is so much bigger than Farrakhan and the Jewish question.”
“I know Farrakhan, been knowing him for years and years and years and years and years, and every once in a while some writer or somebody will I guess try to think of something to say about Farrakhan, but nah, my world is so much bigger than any of that. I don’t have time for that. I deal with it, you know, when it comes but nah, that’s not a real part of my focus,” Davis told The Daily Caller….

Ellison Says His Democratic Colleagues Never Asked Him About Farrakhan Connection: ‘No One Cares’
This is the ugly open secret of the Democrat Party; the turning a blind eye to the “right” kind of racists and thugs. Right-thinking people (that is, leftists) understand that it’s gauche to openly acknowledge what everybody knows, and violators will be ostracized and excommunicated. Prime examples are David Horowitz, who once defended the Black Panthers and then realized they were murderers and he said so, and our own Tammy, whose condemnation of the wife-batterer and murderer OJ Simpson clashed with NOW’s racist politics. And these same leftists then point at their political opposition and say, “It’s you that’s the racist, not me!” Weirdly, this has been a winning strategy; I wonder if there’s any chance of that changing.
Fat chance in hell and we all know it!
Agreed. But at least these Demrats, er, Democrats, are getting called out for their hypocrisy.
