More than a week after Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan delivered a blistering speech in Chicago in which he said “powerful Jews are my enemy” and “white folks are going down,” calls are growing louder for Democratic leaders and Women’s March founders with ties to denounce him or step down.
Among those in the line of fire are several members of Congress and Women’s March co-chairwoman Tamika Mallory, who attended the Nation of Islam’s national convention late last month, There, Farrakhan delivered the controversial address and Mallory, who has expressed admiration for him in the past, posted Instagram photos from the Chicago event.
“Here’s the problem: Farrakhan does have an audience and still has widespread popularity among his devoted followers,” Jonathan Greenblatt, the national director of the Anti-Defamation League, wrote in a blog published on Thursday. “Because of Farrakhan’s reach and influence and his broad name recognition and something like celebrity status, some public officials, politicians and hip-hop entertainers are still willing to meet with him, still willing to have their pictures taken with him.
“They seemingly have a blind spot when it comes to his anti-Semitism,” he added.
President Obama was recently criticized when a photograph of him with Farrakhan, taken before his 2008 election, surfaced. The photographer said he buried the picture on orders from tthe Congressional Black Caucus, which believed it would hurt Obama’s election chances.
Seven members of the Congressional Black Caucus have had ties with Farrakhan, according to The Daily Caller, which said it had reviewed videos and witness accounts to create the tally.
A comedian not in the making. She doesn’t even know who the V.P is. Too much acid in her youth.
Click Here for the new member of the Comedy Club. This would be the greatest thing since sliced bread. Think people are laughing at her now, wait until she becomes speaker people will be doubled over.
For eight grueling years the Tea Party fought hard; down in the trenches we were bloodied, pilloried, stymied and most of all, we were called “DEPLORABLE.” But through it all we stood tall. And in the end we elected Donald J. Trump as our President. Gelding does not describe him, but bull does; taunt him and he will dig in for the fight. Too bad this can’t be said about most Republicans.
Take for example, the slow talker from Maine, Susan Collins, by the time she gets it out, twenty four hours have passed then we forget the question. Question: Why is she a Republican? We can’t adequately describe her political affliction, only to say that she and Maxine Waters ought to start a comedy routine.
The usual suspects include the likes of Mitch McConnell, a two faced politician if there ever was one. Then we look no further than Lindsey Graham. But there is more, those who care about their careers rather than their country. Rinos who pledged to defeat Obamacare, but when the going got tough they went Yellow Pants. Governors who were hoodwinked to a Siamese twin Obamacare state are guilty as charged; for them socialized healthcare is said and done. Ron Johnson, Chuck Grassley, Thad Cochran, Mark Kirk are members of the RINO herd. John McCain is also a franchised member; a maverick in his own right.
And the rest of the herd that voted for Loretta Lynch.
LORETTA LYNCH CONFIRMED WITH TEN REPUBLICAN VOTES
The Senate voted 56-43 this afternoon to confirm Loretta Lynch as Attorney General. Ten Republicans voted for confirmation: Kelly Ayotte (gone), Ron Johnson, Mark Kirk, Rob Portman, Thad Cochran, Susan Collins, Jeff Flake, Lindsey Graham, Orrin Hatch and Mitch McConnell.
In 2018 those Gelded Republicans up for reelection must be taken to the slaughterhouse.
