When David Duke, former Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, announced his support of Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign, the mainstream media practically tripped over their underwear as they rushed to condemn the future president, because it fit their narrative that Trump was a bigot. Trump renounced the endorsement — but that did not stop the questions.
Recently released pictures and videos revealed that former President Obama and other Democrats including California Reps. Maxine Waters and Barbara Lee and Texas Rep. Al Green and 17 other Democratic members of Congress had very friendly meetings with racist, anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan. And the deputy chairman of the Democratic Party, Keith Ellison, has had a close relationship with the life-long bigot.
“These false Jews promote the filth of Hollywood that is seeding the American people and the people of the world and bringing you down in moral strength,” Farrakahn said in a speech on Saviours’ Day, the Nation of Islam holiday, on Feb. 26, 2006. “It’s the wicked Jews, the false Jews, that are promoting lesbianism, homosexuality. It’s the wicked Jews, false Jews, that make it a crime for you to preach the word of G-d, then they call you homophobic!”
Last Sunday, in his latest Saviours’ Day speech, Farrakhan crowed, “The government is my enemy, the powerful Jews are my enemy, and scared-to-death Negroes are my enemy, and weak Muslims and hypocrites are my enemy! … White folks are going down. And Satan is going down. And Farrakhan … has pulled the cover off of that Satanic Jew and I’m here to say your time is up, your world is through.”
Farrakhan discussed Rep. Ellison, confirming that Ellison was a disciple, something that was known but downplayed by the congressman.
“He wanted to help his community. He wanted to be a congressman, so when the Jews found out that he was in the Nation [they demanded he denounces Farrakhan]. Keith [Ellison] was in the Nation in 1995. He was selling the Final Call newspaper, a beautiful brother.”
Ellison’s work with Farrakhan and other anti-Semites was exposed when he was running for chairman of the Democratic party.
Farrakhan’s hatred isn’t the only issue. Whenever a bigoted nut-job announces support of President Trump, Democrats and the mainstream media rush to interview every Republican they can find to ask, “Why won’t the president denounce——?” David Duke and the Charlottesville neo-Nazis were only two of the many examples.
But when Democrats display a close relationship with haters, the only thing one hears from the mainstream media is the sound of crickets. Former President Obama associated with Al Sharpton who led two anti-Semitic pogroms in New York, he awarded Presidential Medals of Honor to anti-Semites such as Mary Robinson, who led the Durbin Conference, and Desmond Tutu, who declared that Jews think they own G-d and befriended numerous anti-Semites.
After Farrakhan spewed hatred on Sunday, senior Democrats such as Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer weren’t asked to denounce him. Farrakhan’s hateful words were reported by the media but his relationship with Democrats was not treated the same way as when a bigot announces support of President Trump. Where are the headlines saying “denounce Farrakhan!,” “where are the Democrats?,” “why is Ellison silent,” or even, “Do all the Democrats in Congress support the anti-Semitic Farrakhan?”
CNN’s Jake Tapper went on a twitter storm denouncing Farrakhan’s hatred. It ended with, “The difference between Farrakhan and some members of the alt-reich whose heinous bigotry has received a lot of attention this past year: Farrakhan has a much larger following and elected officials meet with him openly.”
Not all or even most Democrats are anti-Semites. But sadly, as the far left continues to take over the party, many are leaning that way. Perhaps that’s why the party is silent (well that, and the fact that Keith Ellison is its vice-chair).
Mainstream media usually ignore anti-Semitism but Farrakhan spews hatred against all white people. So why is the media silent? Is it because they only care about some bigotry? Is it because Farrakahn has a relationship with Democrats, and the bigots who support the president are supporting a Republican? Perhaps it’s because the media hates Trump more than the average Republican?
In 2012 when Todd Aken blew his Missouri Senate bid with the extremely stupid comment, “If it’s legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut the whole thing down,” the first question out of most MSM reporters’ mouths when confronting a Republican was, “do you agree with Todd Aken?” Heck even I was asked the question during a radio appearance. Yet a week Louis Farrakhan unleashed his latest hatred upon the world, not one Democrat has been asked if they agree with him.
Sometimes media bias has nothing to do with what reporters say, but what they don’t ask.
